First off, if this issue has been addressed in a previous post, I apologize for cluttering!
A question for anyone with tech/electrical skills:
I have come across numerous sites on the Internet that show how to make a 3-bit binary counter, but the majority require a 4017 chip, which I have had trouble finding- Radio Shack doesn't seem to carry them. I dont; feel like having to order one online; is there any way to wire up three 555 timers to get a similar effect? I am not too concerned about "screen accurate" sequencing. I simulated a schematic using a program and it worked fine, but when I set it all up on a breadboard for testing the LEDs would only light solid- no blinking at all. Anyone know of a way to do this?
