Vintage Electronics Hack Chat | Hackaday

Sign up for us on Wednesday, January 25 at noon Pacific for the Vintage Electronics Hack Chat with Keri Szafir!

The earth of the hardware hacker is filled with smells. The forbidden but attractive waft of solder smoke, the acrid bite of the Magic Blue Smoke, the heady aroma of freshly greased gears, the unmistakable scent of sizzling steel — they all convey to a tale, in some cases great, in some cases undesirable.

But the scent inside of a piece of vintage electronics? Now that is a challenging tale without a doubt. It may be the wax of the aged capacitors, the resinous scent of effectively-baked resistors, the enameled wire in transformers, or just the smell of the very hot glass of the vacuum tubes. Whatsoever it is, at the time you smell it, you will under no circumstances overlook it

join-hack-chatFor some of us, that to start with whiff commences a lifelong enthusiasm for classic equipment. Keri Szafir is aware of rather perfectly what it’s like to be bitten by the vintage bug, so considerably so that she goes by “The Vacuum Tube Witch” more than on her YouTube channel. Her jobs contain repairs and restorations of classic amps and radios, and even new builds with previous tubes. She’ll end by the Hack Chat to speak about classic electronics, tube hoarding gathering, and even her new fascination in retro screen technologies. Wherever there is a tube, there is a way!

Our Hack Chats are dwell group gatherings in the Hackaday.io Hack Chat group messaging. This week we’ll be sitting down down on Wednesday, January 25 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. If time zones have you tied up, we have a useful time zone converter.
