Making an adjustable “lab” power supply from scrap

Had an old power supply board lying around that was ripped from dead/old printer. PSU model is CZ57PSE EPSON

C257PSE

To make it work one should connect PSC line to ground.

Schematics of similar power supply:

To regulate output, made an adjustable voltage regulator using LM2575 that was ripped of some dead router or something similar:

Assembled and boxed Clone PI AVR metal detector

Some more photos of boxed Clone PI AVR metal detector and self made coil.

I have made a coil from Ethernet cable between two round plywood sheets filled with Makroflex sealant. More about making coil from Ethernet cable can be fount here. Idea how to seal everything came from here.

Clone PI AVR intself was boxed in a box I bought in local electronics store. I decided to add a switch to switch off external beeper so that sound will be provided only through headphone socket. For the coil connector I have selected some two pin microphone connector. I think in general it came up pretty well.

Will be mounting everything on appropriately bent and painted PVC pipe. Will post pictures later. Some day. Probably.
