About Me[edit]

I am a once upon a time high school teacher and database programmer/software engineer. My hobbies now are gardening, Python programming, microcontrollers, Physics/Math, my cats and whatnot. I have a nice wood shop, some metal working tools, and am learning to weld. I have a fairly large collection of scientific antiques, mostly microscopes, surveying instruments, and electronics test equipment. Online my name is often russ_hensel, gives me a pretty unique id on Google. I live in Dartmouth Ma.

I am now on Facebook, but do not post much.

I have posted a few Instructables, find me there at: Instructables member: russ_hensel

I have done a fair amount in Python. I am now keeping my files at github: For some there may be info here, other not.

You can reach me ( EMAIL ) at: no_spam_please_666 at comcast dot net (REFORMAT FOR A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS). This address is just for first contact, I will respond with a better address after first contact.

On this site I tend to write about the following topics

  • Electronics in general ( still doing it at home, but not writing about it much ).
  • Microcontrollers, PIC in the past now the Arduino
  • Python and my Python Projects
  • Raspberry Pi
  • 3D Printing and FreeCad ( bought first printer in 2017, second one too )
  • BoostC - now replaced by C++ in context of the Arduino
  • Stepper Motors -- used in several of my projects. Usually in catagories with Arduino

About My Articles[edit]

I write about items as they interest me. Too often I start on something and drop either the article or the project for short or long periods befor picking it up again. Sorry. I am open to email with questions, this may make me complete or improve some article. If you are interested please let me know.

You may find that some pages say something like:

This is an article started by Russ Hensel, see " My Articles" About My Articles for a bit of info. The page is only partly finished

My Editing Links[edit]

These links are for me to navigate to pages I have done quite a bit of work on or want to look at frequently. They are not for you, but you can use them if you want.

Articles posted here on Open Circuits[edit]

Serial Communications and Microcontrollers[edit]

  • Python Smart Terminal As of Sept 2016 still and active project.
  • Category:Serial_Communications Most of these have at least large input from me. Some are general, some for the Arduino, and some for the PIC microcontroller.
  • Category:PIC I have mostly converted to the Arduino, but before that I used the PIC, still think it is a nice micro controller, but building the boards and finding a coding environment.... is more of a pain than I want.
