Wink constantan wire

Have you tried to make your own resistors with constantan wire ?
It comes in different gauges, you just cut it in length accordingly.

But hand made capacitors ? Are you kidding ?
-> cutting long paper strips, soak them in oil, take long thin silver foils from a leftover christmas decoration and roll everything slowly like a cigar... :-)

greetings
Klaus

Klaus,

Actually all you have to do is just get your hand near a circuit and you have just added a few picofarads of "hand made" capacitance.

In high school, whew that's a long time ago, we had to create a REALLY big capacitor for a laser power supply.

This was achieved by using a piece of double sided PCB stock. We also tried stacking double sided PCB's with limited success, but the single piece of stock worked really well, it was just a tad cumbersome!
