Default DIY Guide for AMP Mk. 2 Replica **UPDATED 11-2-19** (Coming Soon)

I plan to make a replica of the AMP Mk. 2, with the only difference being: no AZTEC mode, and a plastic box instead of aluminum... and I plan to make a DIY guide that anyone can follow. Even someone who has never programmed or worked with electronics.

I am very appreciative of the other DIY guides for induction annealing as that's where I got a good idea of how to build one.

However none of them used pilots to perfectly align brass in the induction coil. I decided to buy the pilots from AMP, and use the same exact system they use: Insert case into pilot from above.

PROGRESS VIDEOS:

Part (1) - Demonstration of basic concept using arduino - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beRDSCL24gw

Part (2) - Completed build - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqAu...ature=youtu.be

Part (3) - Annealing Brass - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkFV...ature=youtu.be ***NEW 11-2-19***

Parts List (Complete) & Link to DIY Guide (Incomplete): https://docs.google.com/presentation...it?usp=sharing ***NEW 11-2-19***

First time soldering, as well as my first time working with arduinos & programming them, so if you see any mistakes or have any suggestions I am open to suggestions.

UPDATE!! Completed the building, soldering, wiring, and diagnosed and fixed all issues with the build. I am now just waiting on the pilot boss from Annealing Made Perfect to start annealing real cases. Here is a video of everything powered on and showcases the internals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqAu...ature=youtu.be
