ordering things off the internet
Found a cheap(er) source for telephone coils. Ordered two to see if they worked, they work great! So I ordered 60. Actually the cheaper ones are better because the casing comes off very easily... I was struggling to remove the casing on the Radioshack telephone coil.
Later the same day inductor coils from Electronic Goldmine arrived. I had forgotten about these! Haven't tested yet... but I have working coils.... should be worth testing anyway.
designed a board using Eagle. Sent it to Barebones PCB to test. Due to arrive Tuesday. Hopefully it will work fine!
I also ordered all the components from Digikey and white LEDs. I ordered so many things my credit card company called me to make sure I wasn't a victim of identity theft!
