I love knots! My favorite is the Prussic Hitch... Thanks for a knotty read!
"Poof chamber" Love it!
Wow! That ended up looking VERY classy! Love it!

Kudos for the Pogo quote! Extra points!
What a freakin' cool project! I always wonder at some of the applications I fin on Instructables, and this is certainly a wonder and wonderful concept/project! You're a modern-day Leonardo daVinci!

As long as you don't try to break up the ceramic insulators at end of the stem and around the base of the antenna, you'll be fine. It's only the dust that is dangerous, and these ceramics are pretty robust against wear and even impact. Plus, some are based on AlN rather than BeO. As you should whenever you are disassembling something, be sure to wear a face mask, gloves, and safety glasses; and carefully clean up after yourself and properly dispose of unwanted bits when you're done. There are plenty of diagrams and YouTube videos available to guide you in deconstructing a magnetron without disturbing the insulators as well, so no need to fly blind...
Engineer here, too ('88). Drove my statics and dynamics profs nuts because, as a BSEE, I was more comfortable using formulae and calculating everything than using the tables, and they didn't know how to calculate thee results themselves :)Don't sweat the comments, my friend - EXCELLENT 'ible, excellent product, well thought out, and aesthetically pleasing. Don't sweat the "experts." I plan to use your table top design in a true cantilever, floating "L" shaped computer desk. You have inspired me :)

Steelcase rather ingeniously fixed just the "stupid" you speak of with their lateral file cabinets - they have simple plastic toggles all connected to a band down the height of the cabinet. The band has features at each drawer to interfere with its path if the band is not in its relaxed state. When you pull out any drawer, it's toggle gets flipped, pushing against the band. The band, then, interferes the remaining drawer slides, preventing you from having more than one open at a time. Simple, and ingenious. (And, no: I haven't tried to pull two drawers at once really fast. Yet...) ;)
?? I don't understand the comment regarding cautioning the user against adding weight to the front, top. the top is obviously sturdy enough to take any form of loading reasonable for 2x4s on edge (quite high), and the forward legs and K-braces will counter any moments about the base of the upward brace that would cause it to tip. Please explain your concern.
Oh, I get why they make the warning - I just don't understand their premise for it. Simple statics: the tensile and compressive strengths of the pine boards arranged in this manner are more than sufficient to take weight - a LOT of weight. The top isn't a true cantilever, due to the bracing; more like a truss bridgework - half of a modern storage style roof truss, to be closer to the design. I haven't solved the forces through the structure; however, I see very, very little concern regarding material strength or structural stability... Looks like a great project, and attractive outcome, and my kudos mscharch for a job well conceived and executed!

Propane has a similar additive (mercaptons), and I regularly use propane to sear meats, brown creme broulee, custards, cheeses.... But MAPP seems to retain the smell through the burn, where propane propane flames do not - so this is a wise caution!
Shouldn't be necessary since the food is never to be in contact with the water in which he places the sensor and teh vacuum sealed food..
Nuts! Must be iPad only. Doesn't show up in the app store on my iphone :(
Very cool news! I was not aware of these versions, and happily stand corrected (Now to download that iOS one, and see how it works on the small screen!)
There is no GIMP version for Android or iOS. Frankly, I don't see how there ever could be, but more amazing things have happened in the past few years....Go to the link using your computer, and it will automatically detect your operating system and offer up the relevant download link :)
I have been playing with computer graphics since the late 80s, and have been using Gimp for about 5 years or so. Your tutorial is EXCELLENT! I learned q lot about both the technique to take the picture, plus some really useful tips on using GIMP. Nicely done!
Nice work! Got my vote!
