  • 5 Times The Trash to a Single Treasure Knife (54TASTK)

    Nice looking knife, bad looking cut. Yikes! Ref. the offset handle, I usually make my skinners with an asymmetric handle, a larger scale on the right side. Made this way they fit better in my hand and I loose far fewer in the gut pile. I wanted to add a picture but iPhone isn't playing well? Anyway, voting because of the injury and the best use of a Harley. =D

    Knife from Sawzall Blade

    Very nice! I've been thinking about doing that for ages. I actually have some blades on the workbench that I was planning on using to make a fillet knife.

  • The Process of Building a Cigar Box Guitar Amp - Little Gem or The $5 Crackerbox Amp

    Size doesn't matter. You could drive a Marshall stack with this amp, it won't get loud though. This amp will drive any 8 ohm loudspeaker, but it will only output 3/4 of a watt. So, what you are looking for in a speaker is lots of decibels per watt. Look for a high efficiency speaker one that puts out 95-100db per watt. Whether you use a 5 watt or 50 watt speaker with this amp simply won't matter.If, on the other hand, you want to increase the power output of the amp I suggest you look at other projects. This little amp really can't be modified for higher output.

    Tables of 6, 7, 8 and 9 in your hands

    Sure, some people find it easier to remember a simple process rather than an imposing matrix of numbers. I did much better at math when I got to algebra and calculus and the numbers, in many cases, went away. Another example is I play lots of stuff on guitar and I can't tell you what note I'm playing or what cords. The process to play notes is much easier for me when I get rid of all the theory and dispense with memorizing the fretboard, scales, and cords. Having said that, it doesn't stop me from studying Bach.

    True, I use a calculator. The point of this instructable is to show a method of multiplication for those who can't memorize all of the times tables. If you have a less complicated method using your fingers, let's see it.
