  • Cleaning Lenko Snow Machines

    I was recently introduced to two Lenko snow machines and was really interested to see them working. Because of the multitude of nozzles making a fine mist, they are supposed to make snow really well. Upon firing it up, however, most were dribbling, and many more were clogged up altogether.

    I started going through the work of removing the nozzles. There were 450 nozzles per machine plus an inner piece that needed disassembling as well to make a total of 1800 parts that needed cleaning!

    I used CLR and an electric toothbrush to slowly clean all of the pieces. They were very calcified and the o-rings were cracking. After cleaning, I found that they were quite tacky and gave all the parts a hot water bath. I put new o-rings on as I assembled all the nozzles.

    The difference after cleaning was visually striking. We flushed the machines with no nozzles in them to try to blast any residual build up out of the rings. Then we put all the nozzles back by hand to avoid over tightening or cross-threading. The machines work amazing now, and produce a lot of snow.

  • Soundesign Record Player

    I recently came across this Soundesign record player and although the output cable was busted, I decided to keep it because everything else seemed in good repair. I found an old cable and soldered the ends to the old cable.

    Now all that is left is to enjoy some good classic music!

  • Using A Security Key For Gmail

    I recently got a HYPER FIDO Pro Security Key and I decided to use it for 2-step verification on my Gmail account.

    On your Google account, under the security section it gives you the options for 2-step verification.

    There are multiple 2-step verification options. You could use a text, or a phone call, but to use a security key, click on “Show more options”. It will ask you to plug in your security key and press it’s button.

    When it has recognised the key, it should look like this. Now whenever you login to your Google account for the first time on a computer, it will ask for the security key to be plugged in. Using a security key is fun because it is like a key to a lock, only it is the key to an application.

I love music and have started to play around with free music related software, from fully functional DAWs, to synthesizers, to plugins, and even smaller applications like tuners.

My Music

I have been interested in audio and how it forms music for a long time. Recently, I have started to actually make my own music. Through this process, I have learned first hand that it really takes dedication and time to produce music that sounds good. Here I am going to share some of my creations.

In high school, I was part of a FRC robotics team. I am no longer on the team, but all of my posts are original and are my own work. This website being my blog, I will continue to keep old posts up, just not on my homepage.
