AliExpress #12, #59 ( NodeMcu & a Drill Bit)

NodeMcu V3 Lua WIFI
Day 62

This was almost in my first ten orders. I have been interested in playing with the ESP8266 NodeMcu module since I heard about. Now I have had this unit for quite some time, and the seller has been very understanding.

But ... I have not so far been able to get this unit to work well. It seems to either want to act as a serial com port for the computer or a wifi hotspot. I have tried plugging  it into different USB ports on the computer. I have tried using a powered USB hub.

I have still been unsuccessful in getting any computer to connect with this unit via it's USB com port.

Flexible Drill Bit
Day 77

This is a rather neat flexible drill bit. For those times when you can not get the drill directly behind where you need to screw.

Since this was purchased as a gift for someone I have not tested it. I will update this post after the person tries this one and tells me how it performs.
