After the experiences more or less frustrated with the Drill Set / Electric Grinder 80 in 1 WLXY P-800 (WLXY P-800 80-in-1 Electric Drill / Grinder Set) and to Mini Drill / Grinder Electric WLXY WL-800 (WLXY WL-800 Electric Drill / Grinder Set) I could have given up. But do not give up!
First, I became convinced that WLXY is a brand that does not pay, and that even with a fountain and a grinder / drill the functional WLXY, he would end up leaving me down in the near future, so I decided to move on brand. The Pros'kit seems to be a better brand, at least soldering paste one is good, and the tools seem to be of good quality. A DX – DealExtreme It has a mini grinder / drill from Pros'kit, is the PT-5201B model, but it is 220V, and my region has as standard 127V. I have only two 220V outlets in the house. But digging in the US Pros'kit site just finding the PT-5201A model.
Remained now find somewhere to buy such a model. And just around thinking Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A (110 In) from the seller tool-boom on the eBay. Feita a compra em 29/09/2013, post done in 02/10 and on day 16/10, only 14 days after, the package was already in my hands. Open and face already realized that it was a better product. Parties in WLXY models are all plastic, in Pro'sKit are metal. Ultimately, seemed a more robust product. A source of 110V, with its plug in the American standard (Type A) was there, all pesadona, delivering that it was a model with transformer (linear). The source of WLXY are keyed. Moreover, the fact of the sources WLXY be bivolt and the Pro'sKit be 110V or 220V is half that delivered the Pro'sKit the model should be of transformer.
And you know what was the big advantage that? Exactly! No! The source of Pro'sKit also came with defect. With it, Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A nem liga. It would be the curse of the sources of mini grinder? Do these manufacturers do not test their sources before release their products for sale? The solution was to contact the seller and explain the problem. He asked product photos, detailed account of the defect and chose to make a full refund of the $ 28,00 I had paid for the product (the shipping was free). I was without power, but with the Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A running, what I could see with functional supply WLXY.
That's when I decided to leave in search of another source in place even market. There are two shops of electronic parts that get in the way of my work. In the first one found a switching power supply of 18V and 1A, with 85V input to 265V, da marca Moon, Brazilian industry (oh!). The original is also 18V, 400mA and 120V input. So, the source I found is stronger. The only problem is that the output it is a plug P4 male, exactly the same as the Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A uses. And in the world of electronics you can not marry two males or calling pro STF go over the constitution. It could even cut the two plugs and splice the wires directly, but do not really like these wild solutions, rough, barbaric and coarse, then deduced that the best solution would be to seek an adapter or even make one using mini cable or adapter two jacks P4. But jacks P4 were missing this store.
I was then in the second store of electronic parts and there I found the jacks P4. But, they had no source of 18V. Then bought the jacks for a few cents and returned to the first store. There bought the source for € 27,00, and the guys in the shop were already comrades and made the cable with P4 jacks for me, no charge more for it. Problem solved! 🙂 Em resumo: to $ 28,00 repayment bought the source, jacks and still left enough to eat several crayons and take some garapas. Not to be twisting the cable-adapter I decided to make my first job with the Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A, building an adapter with a box of Tic Tac. As you can see in the pictures, was crap, more works. Next I hit in the category beauty also.
Remember that by the time I got to the new source, the adapter and Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A no meu trabalho, I tried to turn it on and almost threw it in the trash and cursed all mini grinders manufacturers in the world. I realized that, to connect the Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A, sometimes it did not work. Had to give it some leaps (read: throw it on the table) so he began to spin. But as I am a competent scientist, not a fan of UFC fights signing the channel Combat, I decided to make some systematic tests to see if any patterns discovered. Bingo! I found that the Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A não funciona se girar o botão de ligar devagar. The power button is a pot like to connect and adjust radio volume, those who make a click where it goes from off to on and vice versa. The secret is to move quickly through the click point, just by finger and pull fast as if lighting a lighter. In this way the Mini Grinder Pro'sKit PT-5201A sempre liga numa boa. Connect slowly it never works. Why does this happen? I have no idea. I leave that for you to truly understand electronics. You can make it happen not using the original source and is a side effect of the use of the power supply.
Another source solution that I wondered was to use a source of an HP laptop that went to heaven laptops a few years ago. It is a source of 18,5V, with a much higher current. Worked, but the jack plug that source is nearly impossible to find, then gave up.
The source of Lune restored my confidence in national sources. The last one was using a source outside the Royal Music (representative of the Japanese brand Zoom in Brazil) put together with a guitar pedal, a Zoom GFX-5, I was buying. The Zoom sells the sources separately, but in the case of GFX-5 seems that Royal decided to include the source along to facilitate. The Royal still amounted to only import the Japanese Zoom pedals to Brazil and put a manual in Portuguese printed on red paper, harrowing reading, with the sole aim of avoiding copies, because taking xerox was all black. The manual in Portuguese was the only thing that bracket them aggregated against imported Zoom pedals through Paraguay which cost much cheaper, then the consumer who turn to read black text on red paper right?
Well, when you buy the Zoom GFX-5 I was giving my Zoom 606 as part of the payment, including my source of Japanese Zoom that had been following me since my first pedal, a Zoom 505 II. The shopkeeper told me that she was already with source and such and the value it offered for my Zoom 606 was including the source. Luckily I wanted to test the pedal in the store, when I saw that bitch National Royal was little fountain with so much hate that she burned right there in the store! 😀 Funcionou alguns minutos e pifou, to my joy and to the chagrin of the shopkeeper who after trying to revive it needlessly had to return my estimated source of Japanese Zoom, that is going strong with me today, but 10 years after purchase.
