Using these tins are too easy to make stuff happen, like the mint tin Paddle controller!

Having too much fun doing this, and I'm at work! Loving it!

Best containers for small projects I have ever used.

Pretty cool :D

Have you thought of making a paddle tester? Maybe use a cheap LM3914 with a 9v battery. Turn the knob and watch the LEDs go up & down. If the paddle is dirty then it should flicker a bunch of the LEDs.

That type of thing is on the list, you guessed it. Thanks for the tip on the chip, too.
