After a bit of a break, the MickMake channel is back in action for 2020. Hindsight is great and clearly, I have a vision for 2020 that includes resolutions like 1080p Kicking off the year with a mailbag!

A nice little belt sander for small jobs, but the belts are pretty hopeless.


Lenovo Leez P710

Yet another SBC to add to my ever growing collection.

  • Rockchip RK3399
  • 2 or 4G LPDDR4 RAM
  • SD slot
  • optional 16G eMMC
  • M.2 b-key slot - used for 4G LTE
  • USIM slot
  • GbE
  • WiFi/Bluetooth
  • 2x 4-lane MIPI-CSI
  • HDMI capable of 4k@60Hz
  • 4-lane MIPI-DSI
  • USB3.0 and 2.0
  • 40 pin header that may or may not be Pi compatible.
    • But the RK3399 uses 1.8v logic levels, so unless they have logic level buffers most Pi hats won't work.
  • Soft power button.
  • RTC.
  • Runs off 5v / 3A USB Type-C.
