Ztrains Homemade Static Grass Generator
Maybe it's the January doldrums but the forums seem to be a bit slow recently. If you're looking for a really useful and relatively inexpensive project to get you going... how about a static grass applicator?
I found the plans for this applicator online... here is a direct link to the downloadable PDF:
Static Grass Plans in PDF Format
I've made a few minor changes from the PDF plans but it is essentially the same unit as in the PDF. If you do make this however I would avoid using the 9VDC battery and go with the 12VDC wall wart as the power supply.
The whole unit is relatively inexpensive to build and it really works well. As with anything electrical... be careful when building and using.
