‘A Bearing For Every Purpose’ Displays from Poughkeepsie, NY #ManufacturingMonday
A couple great images and good backstory (with links) from Ed over at The Smell of Molten Projects in the Morning, showing some displays of bearings from Schatz Manufacturing and The Federal Bearings Co. Inc. – the displays are undated but they’re clearly older than most of us are!
Schatz Manufacturing, a major bearing producer in Poughkeepsie, made a sample case to show off their wares:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
