New Product Roundup – January 8th to January 14th

It is Saturday – and that means time for another New Product Roundup! This week we have a variety of new products including an awesome Super Nintendo style USB gamepad, new solder, a float switch, and a few others. Let’s jump in and go over a little more detail on each!

U-Shaped Guide Wheel

This U-shaped guide wheel can be used for rope, cable, wire, 3D filament, or just about anything else that will fit. It uses a ball bearing setup and the deep groove keeps whatever is being run through aligned and moving smoothly.

SNES Style Controller – USB

This USB game controller is very similar to those found on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) years ago – but with a twist – these have a standard USB connector. The controller is Windows, Linux, Mac, and Android compatible and works with standard PCs, Mac, tablets, and even the Raspberry Pi. We think it makes a great addition to any Raspberry Pi retro game console!

Mini Solder Tube – 63/37 Leaded – 15g

This tube of solder is just the right size to keep in a toolkit. The solder is leaded 63/37 (63% tin, 37% lead) and features a water soluble rosin core. We recommend this solder for beginners and experts alike as 63/37 tends to have excellent thermal characteristics.

Float Switch – Side Mount

This product was brought in by popular request since our other float sensor cannot be side mounted in a tank. Just like our standard float sensor, this sensor uses a reed switch and a magnet attached to a buoyant piece of plastic to determine liquid level.

Micro Gearmotor with Threaded Shaft – 400RPM

Finally we have a very unique gearmotor – instead of a standard output shaft, this motor features a 55mm M4 threaded shaft. The output shaft is driven by a standard N20 motor and gearbox combination which reduces the output shaft speed to just 400 RPM at 12V. The reduced output shaft speed is easy to manage and works quite well as a miniature lead screw setup.
