This page is a under construction so below is only a few pieces of equipment that I have built over the last few years.  I will be adding a new piece each day so please check back in a few days for more pics and videos.

Enviornmental Testing,
Support of product testing utilizing Thermal, Temp-Shock, Salt-Fog, Dust, Vibration and HALT.


Rain Chamber.

This Rain Chamber was developed to perform an internal test that was a modified specification of IPX-2.
The flow rates can be modified two ways. By raising the float valve in the reservoir and changing the needle size utilizing the luer lock connections and standard needles.


Keypad and LCD test tap test stations.

With the increased use of keys on cell phones, the focus on the robustness of the key surface and tactile feel increased as well.  A keypad test was developed that duplicated the force on the keys and performed the life cycle tests.  The test was so useful it was quickly adopted and grew to 45 test stations that were constantly running.  

With the introduction of a stylus, the stations were even adapted to test the LCD as well.


With that came the noise and lost lab space.  To limit that the stations were built into office cabinets and switched to Modicon Plc’s for a more uniform and stable systems.

Additional equipment with more details to soon follow.

Robotic life cycle testing.


Slider Slam test.


Camera Switch Test.

Denim - Dust Test


Cement Mixer Tumble Test

Back Pocket Test

Flip Test

Repetitive Drop

Omni-Axis Vibration table for Chamber use. 

This was developed as a new test and became a product for an outside vendor.

Twist Test

(Supported and improved)

Accelerometer and pedometer test.

VHP (Vapor Hydrogen Peroxide) Sterilizers
DV1000 (Large chamber Deep Vacuum)
DV30 (Small chambers and Freeze Dryers)








 DV1000 & DV30(Deep Vacuum Chamber Sterilization)

 The unit pictured here is connected to a deep vacuum chamber to test the efficacy of the flash vaporization of H2O2 sterilization process.  This particular unit was a final prototype that would control the chamber valves, heaters and vacuum system and delivered vaporized H2O2 through our patented metering system capable of +/- .5G of target sterilant in 10 seconds. 
After building and qualifying the system, I transitioned the project to manufacturing by training the assembly technicians.
Several onsite installations were supported at UpJohn Kalamazoo Michigan, Ethicon San Angelo Texas, Eli Lilly Indianapolis Indiana and Taiyo Pharmaceutical in Takayama Japan. 

VHP1000 (Room temperature and Atmospheric pressures) for rooms and isolators.

The unit pictured here is connected to a small plastic isolator that can not be sterilized in either deep vacuum or high temps.  The VHP Phase is very different in that it dehumidifies the isolator at near atmospheric temperatures and pressures through a series of valves and internal desiccant tank.  They unit then re-humidifies the isolator replacing the water vapor with H2O2 vapor for a period of time.  After said time the unit is again dehumidified to remove the H2O2 which is destroyed when run though an internal platinum palladium tank that breaks it into oxygen and water. 

My involvement in this system was to integrate it into various unique customer systems.  This integration would include items ranging from software changes to additional hardware that would allow the unit to work when physics wouldbe stopping it.
I also supported the furthering of technology by creating breadboard prototypes of the next generation that would allow it to be used on much larger rooms and in a constant mode.



 SCCA Club Racing.

 After assisting a friend in the pits at Mid Ohio Sports Complex, I felt it would be fun to build and race my own Improved Touring Division car.  I purchased a non running 88 Pontiac Fiero which I was always fond of and rebuilt and prepared the engine for racing.  The car was then stripped down and converted to a racecar which had to pass a rigorous inspection for compliance to all SCCA racing rules before being registered for competition.  The car and I completed competition driving schools at Nelson Ledges Ohio and Watkins Glen Ney York before obtaining a competition license.
Since then we participated in several races and high speed driving schools at Virginia International Raceway and Roebling Road raceway in Georgia before quickly running out of talent and money.
