This 6” long micro-USB to USB charge and data cable is fabric-covered and has rubber flanges and collars at both ends to protect it from fraying or breaking. Sound like a cable you already have? Probably not. But even if it does, you can never have too many: in the car, office and sock drawer, and on the bike, boat, kayak and scooter. You need charger cables. We all do.

You Heat, Vent, Or Condition Air?

If so, you might understand this circuit board originally from an HVAC controller. Maybe better to have an artistic brainstorm and repurpose this pretty little thing.

No Mount Motor

Our motorman, CJ, called this reversible 12-24VDC motor strange, mostly because it has the power contacts mounted on the face, bracketing the 11/16" x 1/8" mostly striated shaft, and has no mounting brackets. But that shouldn't stop a clever person like you. (Hint: it was probably made to fit into a sleeve of some sort.) At 12VDC, draws 100mA no load, stalls 850mA and spins approx 900 rpm; at 24VDC, draws 150mA, stalls 2.2A and spins approx 1800 rpm.  Measures 2-1/4" x 1-13/32" dia.
