      Thank you note   08/24/2017

      I receive this thank you note from Peggy Warden  Mr. Stadler,  I didn’t post this under announcements, but you can if you want.  Thank you very much for sending the card, money and letting the members know about Chris’s death.  The members on Hagshouse are a special group of guys.  I knew that you all have really big hearts from past experiences when I was helping with charity auctions, etc. But I didn’t know what to say when I got a card with a $500.00 check because Chris had been inactive for a good while now.  Thank you all for the money and the kind words that were written about him on the website.  It was a great comfort for our family to read through each post.  It is just amazing that guys, most of whom I have never met in person, hundreds of miles away, reach out to help with prayers and money.  Chris and I were very thankful for being able to have come to know allot of you through e-mail and phone conversations, being part of your website and running the store.  Life without Chris is the hardest thing in life that I have ever had to do, but it sure does make it easier to bear with friends like you.  There has got to be a big meeting place reserved up in heaven where all the Hagshouse guys get together.  God bless you all!  Sincerely, Peggy Warden P.S.  Chris had signed me up with the Hagshouse member name of “Methuselah”.  As some of you may know, Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible.  Lol!  He did have a sense of humor.

  1. s600 flash replacement

    Nope, but I just did .....and it worked! Thanks my friend.
  2. I have an s600 in a build and the flash unit has failed, looking for a replacement, but before I do I need instructions on the process. I thought there were posts about that, but can't find them. Can anyone help?
  3. SS board diagnosis

    R. Backus 5100 South 62nd Street Rogers, AR 72758 and thanks again!
  4. SS board diagnosis

    Worth a try I suppose. Thanks. Got my addy?
  5. SS board diagnosis

    No luck. Time to go to Plan B,
  6. SS board diagnosis

    K. Hack is sound I tested earlier. Will get to the opto dealie and report back as time allows.
  7. SS board diagnosis

    Not good. 9v showed 8.8 volts to the board after switch turned on; reflow actually got the pir to sense motion on the walk test. Regulator showed a constant 5.07 volts, but no cam function after the board went live. Guess this one may be a goner.
  8. SS board diagnosis

    No detection on walk test. Board has exterior switch which does turn the board on. Will do on reflow.
  9. Original Simple Sniper with p41. Another of those little 'surprises'. Worked well for several years. New 9v, hack tested and working, board goes through walk test but does not detect motion, does blink to indicate walk test completed, after that....nothing. 9v is not on the board, but the nylon washer is still in place, Be hard to add a new board in the room in the case, and I have zero desire to spend any $$ on a build which should function as is. Thoughts? PIR?
  10. Near disaster with w230 build

    Don't think so Woody. No melted wires. I got it cleaned up and put it back in the field this weekend.
  11. Man, don't know what happened here. Chip in if you have thoughts. One of my nicer builds, built with dgrad's advice and council, is a Sony w230 build with as much as 6 AA's for EP, using a lcd board. Always performed extremely well. I get it ready to go out with a freshly charged BG1 in the cam and all six EP's (two separate three bat holders) and take it to camp, probably set in the cam case for about a week. I open it up to turn on the board and there is slimy gunk all over the back of the case. At least two of the bats had leaked, maybe three. The BG1 was dead, the three AA's in one holder (the leaky ones) were dead, and the other three down to .09 volts. I haven't a clue. Only guess I have is that maybe one of the AA's was bad (they were new, and no I did not check them) and that the BG1 tried to back charge and that the others got over charged and blew and the other three kept charging the BG1 and it kept trying to charge the bad bats, and so on. Any other thoughts?
  12. Safari PIR

    Thanks Jim.
  13. Safari PIR

    Got a couple of boards from Ralph. The Game Watcher is up and running. Now the more complicated replacement od a AIO board with a Safari. Space is an issue and getting the wiring attached is much affected by the alignment of the boards. The Game Watcher has this in the description, "Omni-directional PIR that allows the board to be mounted either horizontally or vertically". The Safari info does not. Hoping the Safari board is though, anyone know if it is? [Tried looking for photos of builds, but NO, thanks Photobucket!]
  14. SSII and fast hack

    Right Woody, My build is very similar to yours including the large diameter pipe through ;) I ordered a Gamewatcher yesterday with the three bat set-up after I read an article on the relative strength of a 9v vs AA's and even AAA's. I know that Ken, the key word was easily......... ;-D
  15. SSII and fast hack

    Actually I didn't, but in this case the board is being replaced and I was wanting to use the SSII to add a HPWA at the same time easily. I just ordered a Gamewatcher from Ralph like Ken mentioned, as JDH did not have the little add on boards he used to on hand. Since I had to buy a board, might as well use the fast hack if I can.
