Contacting Bob Blick

Thanks for your interest.
I receive a lot of email and it is not always possible to give immediate replies.

I sometimes make myself available for professional consulting or engineering. I always give serious inquiries careful attention.

I donít mind giving free advice or help to students and hobbyists if itís fun, interesting, and easy.

To assist you, here are a few frequently-asked questions that I have divided into two areas:


QUESTIONS THAT GET ANSWERS:

Q:

I built your H-bridge and it works great. I want to build more and donít need short-circuit protection, can I leave out two transistors or any other parts? Thanks for your help.

A:

Yes, hereís how to do it...

 

Notice how the writer has already done some work and thought about the project? The ďthank youĒ is nice, too.

 

 

Q:

Can I hire you to design a device and build a prototype?

A:

Yes. Please be aware that there are several stages involved in designing and prototyping for eventual manufacture. Most companies have a team of people to do this. A lot of time and money will be needed. Take your best estimate and then multiply it by 100. Is it still worth it?

 

Always include a very short description of the product.

 

 

Q:

My name is also Bob Blick, hello!

A:

Whatís your Social Security number, motherís maiden name, and the name of your health plan?

 

People usually want something from me. Sometimes a little humor is a good idea.

 

 

 

 

QUESTIONS I DONíT ANSWER:

Q:

I am a student and have been assigned to do a project. Help me.

 

The average time I spend answering an email is one minute. Less, if I think you arenít sincere or havenít done any research.

 

 

Q:

I want interesting projects. Send them to me.

 

Perhaps the writer doesnít understand. He is insulting me. All the documented projects are already on my web pages. I work on these web pages to satisfy me, not you.

 

 

Q:

My friend thinks you are cool. Are you interested in a relationship?

 

Iím not interested and donít want you to know my email address. I will not reply.

 

 

Q:

I wrote you and you never wrote back.

 

Perhaps you typed in your email address wrong. I reply to a lot of email and a good percentage of it bounces. Or maybe you sent one of the types of email I donít reply to.

 

Please use the following form to send email to me.
If you do not receive a reply within one week, please try again and make it good.
I don't answer email every day and I only answer the best ones.
