Kits Containing Supplies and Components

Kits are now available from Chaney Electronics, a company with decades of experience in this area. Please go to www.chaneyelectronics.com and scroll down to kit numbers CM1001 (the Entry-Level Kit), CM1002 (the Soldering Kit), and CM1003 (the Supplemental Kit). The contents of these kits are listed below.

CM1001: Entry-Level Kit (for experiments 1 through 11)

Contains the following components and quantities:
Breadboard (1)
Generic LEDs (4)
Low-current LED (1)
2N2222 transistors (6)
Connector for 9V battery (1)
Test leads with alligator clips at each end (8)
Carrier for AA battery (1)
Toggle switches (2)
Tactile switches (2)
DPDT relays (2)
1K linear potentiometers (2)
500K trimmer (1)
Fuses (2)
Small 8-ohm loudspeaker (1)
Hookup wire in three colors (5 feet of each)
Necessary resistors and necessary capacitors for the experiments listed.

The kit does not contain the 9V battery or two AA batteries needed in the experiments. Also it does not contain galvanized brackets, lemons or lemon juice, or copper-plated pennies for use in Experiment 5 of Make: Electronics.

CM1002: Soldering Kit (for experiments 12 through 14)
This is a completely self-contained kit enabling you to do the soldering exercises in the book, culminating with the pulsing-glow circuit described in Experiment 14. You do not need to own any other kit to use this one. You will have to buy soldering equipment, and a multimeter will be extremely useful. A 9V battery is necessary but not included.

Contains the following components and quantities:
Generic red LEDs (4)
Connector for 9V battery (1)
2N2222 transistors (3)
Hookup wire in three colors (2 feet of each)
Rosin-core solder, a selection of heat-shrink tubing, copper alligator clips (1 large, 2 small)
one piece of unplated perforated board
Necessary resistors and necessary capacitors for the experiments listed.

CM1003: Supplemental Kit (for experiments 15 through 24)
To use this kit, you must also own the Entry-Level Kit. Some of components from that kit must be combined with the components in this kit. You do not need to own the Soldering Kit.

The Supplemental Kit contains the following components and quantities:
Generic red LEDs (4)
Yellow LED (1)
Green LED (1)
Red low-current LEDs (15)
Slide switched (2)
Tactile switches (8)
Trimmer potentiometers 20K (1) and 100K (1)
1N4148 diodes (4)
1N4001 diodes (2)
2N2222 transistors (2)
LM7805 voltage regulator (1)
555 timers (4)
Seven-segment LED numeric displays (3)
4026B counters (3)
74HC393 counter (1)
74HC00 NAND chip (1)
74HC08 AND chip (1)
74HC32 OR chip (1)
74HC02 NOR chip (1)
74HC27 NOR chip (1)
necessary resistors and capacitors for the experiments listed.
