Whilst these are not the cheapest you will find they are in my mind the best. I have bought cheaper ones which have fallen apart, the pins are too small to stay in the breadboard sockets so they fall out. Not so with this product and they are the ideal length for most bread board projects. Any longer and you end up with the proverbial rats nest.


How to Build a Magneto Magnetizer
How to Build a Magneto Magnetizer
Price: £4.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Like the curate's egg. Good in parts., 18 July 2017

its an American publication so if you are elsewhere you need to makes allowances. For example he specifies a six pound reel of wire. Wire in most countries is sold by the kilo. The US mains voltage is 110 volts, here in Europe its 220-240 volts so you will need to update the bridge rectifier and smoothing capacitor to suit. . It's a bit lacking in theory. His design seems to output a quarter of the recommended magnetic field strength to recharge a Lucas magneto magnet. But he says it's more than adequate but doesn't include any calculations to justify his claim.

The above points apart I found it quite useful from a constructional point of view.

Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design: Applying the ARM mbed
Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design: Applying the ARM mbed
by Rob Toulson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book!, 27 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is by far the best introduction to Embedded Systems programming I have ever read, and I have read widely on the subject. What's also impressive is it uses the ARM Mbed which is an up to date platform rather than taking another bite at the AVR Arduino system, which, whilst excellent, has been overtaken by progress. I recommend this to professionals, students and amateurs. If I have one criticism it's that the Author could have chosen to use a less expensive target board, expansion board combination.


Antenna Physics: An Introduction
Antenna Physics: An Introduction

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 18 Mar. 2017

This is not a run of the mill ham radio antenna book. If you want to understand the theory behind Antennas and are not scared off by maths then this is the book for you. It's arguably the best treatment of the subject in print. But if you just want to make an antenna or two without understanding the physics you might find one of the excellent ARRL antenna books a better choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best tutorial on Practical Hungarian Grammar I have found., 31 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Over the last five years I have bought quite a few books on Hungarian and this is by far the best for my style of learning. It's a myth that the Hungarian language is difficult, it's just different from any other language. Once you accept that fact and stop looking for similarities you are ready to start learning, l like a book with structure, clear and unambiguous explanations and exercises. This has all three. The pages are nicely laid out, learning points are cross referenced and each topic is reinforced by a number of exercises the answers to which are in the back. To do the exercises you really need a good dictionary and or an internet translation tool because the book aims to teach you grammar and it can't do this without some vocabulary. The exercises range from the easy to pretty tough, depending on how much you already know. But if you put the work in you really will learn a lot. It's more of an academic book than most which suits me fine as my goal is to become fluent. If you are just aiming to learn enough for a holiday in Hungary this is not the book for you. Nor is it if you want a chatty interactive learning experience with fun and games. But with this book, a dictionary, a pen and a lot of paper, and most of all a lot of hard work and an open mind, you will succeed!

A lot of amateur jazz groups and beginners use the Abersold "Maiden Voyage" book to learn from. However this book, and the one on guitar comping which use the same tunes, are not widely known. If you are a bass player and can sight read, or are learning to, this is an excellent book.
