Solid State Adjustable Rate Flasher

Post by erco »

$2 and a 2-3 week wait gets you this solid state flasher from Ebay China: https://www.ebay.com/itm/363048563747

Good news: works great in my '67, provides adjustable flash rate.

Bad news: It's silent, no tick-tock sound. That was neat for a bit, but I missed that audio feedback. I added 2 cheap parts to make some sound.

Thanks for supporting U.S. companies - NOT!! Talk about insensitive to folks out or work in the U.S.A.

The NOVITA EL-12 works great and it has an audio turn signal alert. Company is owned by Sylvania and products get good reviews.

I'm sure you are just joking around.....right? That EL12 isn't even adjustable, which is the whole gist of this thread.

I used to mod those relays and then made my own for awhile when I needed to fine tune the duty-cycle. I had custom 7-segment sequential LED turn signals on my RS and needed a longer "on" duration compared to "off' to make the sequencing look just right. Fun little projects. I have that same flasher for doing test bench work but never added audio. Now I might have to add that. Thanks.

I appreciate your help, that's a cool mod on that flasher, thanks!

Just ignore the haters, I'm sure their homes are full of non USA made products

I'm sure he doesn't have a TV, computer or cell phone either. I'm pretty sure there are none actually made in the USA by a US company.
