Voltlog #271 – InTheMail (non-electronics)

Welcome to a new Voltlog, as the title says this will be a non-electronics mailbag, meaning I will show you what other stuff I am ordering and receiving by mail. A few days ago I created this poll on my youtube community page and asked where I should upload this kind of video, there were really two options, either upload to this channel or create a new one. I was kinda hoping for people to vote to upload them to the same channel because I don’t really want to manage a second channel and it’s also understandable if people vote for the same channel because they don’t need to perform other actions to subscribe to a second channel. And so it was decided to upload to the same channel but mark these videos as non-electronics mailbags.

Voltlog #267 – 60W Ultrasonic Cleaner For PCBs (review)

Welcome to a new Voltlog, today we’re going to take a closer look at an ultrasonic cleaner. This is the 1.3 litre, model number I believe is Y-009, the ultrasonic power is 60W while the heating power is rated for 100W. Usable area I’ve measured to be 125x115x40mm depth which is not a lot but I’ve thought about it and this is pretty much all I need. 99% of the PCBs I design fit within these dimensions so it’s not worth getting a bigger ultrasonic cleaner because it will take up more space and it will use up more cleaning liquid, it would be a waste of resources.

Voltlog #258 – Cheaper Isopropyl Alcohol Wipes For PCB and Stencil Cleaning

Welcome to a new Voltlog, today we’ll have a little chat on IPA cleaning wipes. Professional PCB wipes soaked in IPA are pretty expensive and hard to get but can we substitute those with something cheaper that works just as nice for cleaning the flux residue from PCBs?
