These will be attached to the stripboard when we have completed it. ■ Mini Laser Turret 39 Step 4. Fix the Laser and Servos Figure 4-7 shows the design and wiring of the turret module. The laser module is mounted onto one of the servos. This servo is then mounted onto the arm of the other servo so the bottom servo will control the vertical angle of the laser, and the top servo the horizontal angle. The servos are usually supplied with a range of “arms” that push onto a cogged drive and are secured by a retaining screw.
Do not fit the retaining screw yet, since you will need to adjust the angle. Glue the laser diode to a second “arm” and attach that to the servo. It is a good idea to fix some of the wire from the laser to the arm in order to prevent any strain on the wire where it emerges from the laser. You can do this by putting a loop of solid core wire through two holes in the server arm and twisting it around the lead (again, see Figure 4-8). Next, cut a slot in the can lid so the servo arm can move (Figure 4-8).
Figure 4-10 shows the completed laser turret module, with the ribbon cable attached and ready to be connected to the stripboard. Step 6. Prepare the Stripboard Figure 4-11 shows the stripboard layout for the project. Note that it is shown as viewed from above. Begin by cutting the stripboard to size: we need 15 strips, each with 20 holes. A strong pair of scissors can do this just fine. ” Figure 4-12 shows the back of the board, ready for soldering.
