About Neil Devonshire

Hi and welcome to my Patreon page.

I am now on the way to a fully-fledged YouTuber, so the content will continue growing.

My main focus here is to provide a fun and transparent engineering journey through various projects, from fresh new ideas through research, development, 3D CAD, Fabrication (including milling), testing, problem discovery (hopefully not catastrophic), finding solutions, then fully testing a working product. Where you can get involved every step of the way if you wish, or just watch the ups and downs.



Your pledge helps build the projects and to inspire budding engineers to problem-solve in different ways, have the freedom to create bespoke solutions from everyday items (who'd of thought of using an engine hoist to remove an overgrown rose bush?). Hopefully helping to promote confidence to try different approaches, in order to resolve the hurdles that are inherent in almost all projects.



Feel free to contribute by asking questions or sharing suggestions to shape how future projects develop, or even develop your own projects with help from this community (once established). I am fully open to constructive feedback, where I wish to keep things interesting and fresh for all of my Patrons.

Please make use of the Discord channels to chat to other Patrons and engineers about any of your own, community or my projects. As a recognised Patron, you can send invites to join in with the community chat on Discord to any friends/non-members.

As a side-dish, I will be creating simple "how to" videos for the use of certain tools and test equipment, such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, clamp meters, soldering techniques, milling, 3D CAD, etc.



In addition, should you wish to follow, I will be creating behind the scenes videos about me and my progress in setting all this up, including any embarrassing bloopers (we are only human).

I had hoped to create at least 1 Project video, a How to video and a Behind the scenes video per week initially, although this was a very ambitious target for the start, I didn't realise all the work involved, so when content is released, this will be on a Friday (for Gold and above) so you can watch them over the weekend if you desire, plus a whole week before the general public gets access too (Very VIP). The "Behind the scenes" and "blooper reels" will remain Patron only footage (who would want them getting out).

My current projects include (see below pictures) : -
  • Converting an MGF into a Multi-Motor lightweight Electric Vehicle
  • Converting a Manual Milling Machine to Brushless DC and run off Solar Energy
  • Completely re-wiring a WWII Jeep from scratch
  • Re-conditioning a 3.2L GSi Vauxhall Vectra, including engine out re-con
  • Repairing/improving many electrical/electronic items that fail over time (side projects) at home

Future projects I'd love to attempt are: -
  • Create something powerful with hydraulics
  • Make a functional pit droid
  • Develop Home Kinetic Energy Power Storage
  • Disco Lighting DMX Arduino controller
  • Multi-Servo cheap actuator for high precision, high-speed robotic joints

Please take a look through my current project videos and feel free to choose a Tier that suits you. Your pledge means that I can improve the quality and breadth of content to benefit all Patrons and subscribers (hats off to you).

I hope you can enjoy the journey with me.

Thank you for your consideration.

Additionally, I wish to Thank James Bruton (X Robots) for inspiring me to join Patreon, please check out his Patreon page here.

Goals
$13.15 of $500 per month
To reduce your audio/visual fatigue, I will improve my lighting and sound equipment, such as: -
  • A lapel microphone with high signal to noise ratio (reduced background noise)
  • 2 x LED panel lights at colour 6000K (improve video contrast)
  • Create 2 x stands for LED panels (possible Project for here)
  • Good quality desk mike for voice over
