MERG Article - Controlling a Crane

A small change to this month's 'My Workbench' article, rather than talking about my control play ground project, I'll be talking about a small project which has recently taken a sizable chunk of my model railway time (not that I care). And no I don't feel guilty about it - my regular feature was pitched to the editor ( a few issues ago now) as a what's on my workbench series rather than a my control playground series.

Magic Smoke

Strange thing, I built an electronic kit and it half worked. After some testing the fault was found - I'd soldered in a regulator back to front. However the other regulator (wired the same way!) had been working fine. One of those moments in electronics of it works so I'm leaving it. I'm just surprised I managed to keep the magic smoke inside both of them.
