Custom PC Volume Knob Project

Recently, the Elgato Stream Deck Plus was released. My friends and I were looking at the device and really wanting the knobs to control just the volume of our PC volume. However, I didn’t want to buy the whole device just for a knob. This is the journey I made to DIY my volume knob. This post is sponsored by PCBWay. In searching for something that might already exist, I found a great blog post by Wolfgang Zeigler on how he built one for himself.

I recently had my barn freezer go out. While it’s always inconvenient, I had just bought half of a cow, which is quite costly. A good majority of the meat had gone bad, and we didn’t know it for a day or so. To ensure this didn’t happen again, I tried to see if I could use my nerd skills to figure out a way to prevent this in the future.
