Microwizard Fasttrack Timer Case Build

Post by mclewis_13 » Sat Feb 29, 2020 7:58 am

Good Morning All.

Sorry for my absence but family, ministry, and work first. Not a lot of time to play.

However if you wake up early enough you can focus!

May I present my Seahorse 720 buildout for holding my timer, car gage, scales, calibration weights, starting gate, and wires. It basically the kitchen sink.

Looks nice. I like how you are keeping everything together (scale, car inspection box, timer).

Though, I would ditch the laser start sensor system. Too problematic. See viewtopic.php?p=53672#p53672. Use the mechanical switch instead. Much more dependable.

I would put the timer in some very, very safe place all by itself.
I have 2 identical Micro Wizard timers with an attachment for one that shows Elapsed times. They are never both in the same place or the same house.

I know. My wife says I worry too much. My doctor is helping me with that.

:rofl:

The timer isn’t mine. It belongs to the church. I am just being the steward of it during my tenure as AWANA commander. It’s brand new, never been used.

We start our pit days next Saturday for the entire month of March. I am so excited to see it all come together!
