      I got farther down the road to making this. got the software loaded on the chip before soldering. now I am soldering. I can't post pics b/c the forum is still messed up w/ my albums

        I got everything soldered together. Have pc lc on a pc. have the pc connected w/ usb data only cord. but now I have to find a driver for the device. Craig left that part out.

          I found some ppl to help me with the software part of this project. they down loaded the Arduino driver. they set up the USB port to talk to pc lap counter. however I can't get the pc lap counter to read the laps off the scx wos power base using the wire soldered off the chip and run thru the Arduino and Arduino software.

            looking at old posts I and Craig got our wires crossed. I only had point c soldered on the chip. I thot that's all I needed at the time b/c I didn't invest enuf thot into the project. now that I've done more I also need point b and a soldered on the board. so I have more work to do. then it should work hopefully.

              taking my scx wos track piece to an electronics repair place to get a quote on having the resister moved and wires soldered on to hopefully get pc lap counter working with the Arduino.

                Got the resistor moved. Now waiting on the proper wire to arrive to solder to the end of the resistor and pad. This phone repair place is going to charge me over $100 to do this but it's micro soldering and can't be done at home. I'd say the mkt rate for a pc lc wos base would be over $250 shipped.

                  the wire chosen for the jumper was too heavy of gauge. when the solder cooled the resistor tore in half. the guy got another resistor and I gave him some Arduino jumper wire. he soldered that on with the new resistor. he layed the wire in a convenient spot for soldering but it isn't a convenient spot to put the board back in place and screw together the powerbase. I have to run the 2 wires out the led lite hole which looks bad. I hot glued over his work to hold the wire together. now I have to finish soldering the arduino stuff. I still don't know if all this effort produced a working power base for pc lap counter. hopefully by new year I will know.
