Elektronika.ba - Lazy man's USB RFID reader

The end result is rough and ready, but think how much work and money was saved by using a cheap adaptor. 

Not only that but an un-needed MAX 213 was salvaged for the parts bin.  OK these can be ordered on Maxims sample program, but parts bins always need that extra piece.
