The advice is good for newbies with marginal electrical experience who are trying to build Tommelise, Darwin and other Reprapper 3D replicator homebrews.
I also carried over the a section I'd written in the RepRap FAQ about sight recognition and schematics of basic electronic components.
Finally, I've made a hard first cut at a tutorial on making the braised copper tubing extruder barrels for the Mk II.
I've tried to keep it all short and simple to avoid overwhelming newcomers. For those of you who really know their electronics please let me know if I've made any mistakes or, paraphrasing Einstein who once put it so well, written it so that it is a bit simpler than possible.
This is something we need to get sorted out for the safety of future reprappers.
Now I collect fat ceramic multi-watt resistors from other things for this purpose.
