Advertisements on HomoFaciens.de by AmazonThis is a list of stuff I am using in my projects and that are available on Amazon.
Arduino UnoThe Arduino Uno is a great microcontroller to start with. The developing environment is open source, based on Java and runs fine on Linux (as well as on other operating systems). I am using an Arduino Uno in several projects such as my CNC v2.0, CNC v3.x series and it all started with my page about the tiny computer.
I recommend buying a Rev. 3 board, that has a socket allowing to change the ATmega328P chip.
Go to Amazon if you'd like to buy an Arduino or to have a look at what the Arduino ecosystem offers.
Raspberry PiThe Raspberry Pi is a great single board computer running Linux. I am using Raspberry Pis in several projects such as my Plotter composed of old optical drives, my V-plotter, I created a personal Internet Of Things and it all started with my page about the Raspberry Pi.
Go to Amazon if you'd like to buy a Raspberry Pi or to have a look at what special peripherals for this single board computer are available.
Router SpindleCNC routers are great tools! I have created a couple of them, my latest is the CNC v3.x series. Besides linear drives, I did tests with router spindles, demonstrating that a quality tool is a good investment.
Go to Amazon if you'd like to buy a quality router spindle such as the Kress 1050 or to have a look at what peripherals for those motors are available on the market.
