Attention to Detail Machining and Electronic Services
ATDMS - Attention to Detail Machining and Electronic Services
Welcome to my hobby site. I try my best to do everything with the utmost attention to detail. Please browse current and past projects to get an idea of what I might be able to do for you.
Many of my modifications/custom projects involve parts/assemblies/product from various vendors such as SureFire, Maglite, and others. Those manufacturers are not affiliated or associated in any manner with ATDMS or the products I sell/modify. These manufacturers do not manufacture, sponsor, warrant, and have no involvement or endorsement of any ATDMS products/services. The
use of any/all product names, models, and trademarks from those companies is strictly for the purpose of identifying the host/flashlight/product/project/etc. that I am offering. All other trademarks, copyrights, graphics, images, text, or other content not owned by ATDMS or any of its related companies that appear with this website are the property of their respective owners, irrespective of any affiliation, or involvement with ATDMS.
What do I Do
Being a hobby, I work on stuff that I like, which in my case it is a little bit of everything. I own a full electronics design/programming work bench, where I concentrate on LED-based projects, as well as a well stocked machine shop, with a 12x lathe and an 8x32 knee mill. Some of the projects I have done in the past include::
- Machining/modification of parts in Plastic, Delrin, Aluminum, Steel, and Titanium
- Circuit design, debugging/troubleshooting, soldering/assembly including SMT (surface mount parts).
- I program, debug, and test my own software designs, based on Atmel's Tiny85 and Tiny84.
- I design my own PWB's, both prototypes and production quality circuit boards, using Eagle CAD design.
- I design parts and complete 3D assemblies using Alibre Expert Design, and I am starting to learn SolidWorks
- I design and make tools and accessories
- I repaired and modified countless flashlights and diving lights
