@John:
I'm really sorry to hijack your nice thread, and for misleading you by not telling you about the existing Harald's solutions.
I just assumed you were into DIY and suggested my own design.

@Dave:
Thanks for your kind remarks and help along the way. You have been very supportive when needed.

I totally agree on supporting the WP-34S community, and it includes Harald's solutions of course. Nothing against it.

However, in my case Harald's offerings do not fit my needs. I needed a flash box integrating:
- Independent power supply;
- Visual monitoring on all operations;
- Press buttons for the flash procedures;
- Maintain the calculator integrity by using a home made POGO connector;
- Low cost solution.

Like many others in this forum, I enjoy DIY and have the required skills, so I decided to create my own design to fulfill my requirements.
Because I like to share knowledge with others, I have shared the results here.
That's all.
