For many years there was a goodyear branded version of this kit sitting in my fathers garage, it required the sealing plug was coated in a glue before fitting, as do the repair plugs for lorry tires that are still available, how ever they require the tire is removed from the rim.

that's getting into the realms of small lathe building, I suggest reading David J Gingerys' series of books building a metal work shop from scrap book 2 should give you ideas regarding mounting a spindle (the head stock) be it a custom casting or just using mounted bearings, book 1 for how to do green sand casting. if using zinc alloy the furnace isn't needed, and there are some good instructables on using delft clay/ oil sand for small parts I can vouch for its ease of use for making small parts in zinc alloy using a stainless steel tea pot and a gas ring. ( my instructables where I've done this are still works in progress) I'd caution on using a mains motor with out a cassing PVC sewr pipe might be suitable
Custom Knife Block
A BTU a British thermal unit, and is an antiquated unit in Britain. I grew up with the ISO system. Which uses Joules for measuring energy, and Watts for energy over time, so in theory the confusion over is it BTU or BTU/h shouldn't happen with ISO units. As for do the math, I did do the maths its plural where I come from because there is always more than one equation to solve.

I can't remember when I last saw or even if I've seen a motor limp before, it seems to be behaving a bit like a stepper motor, I suspect the speed control board , can you disconnect the motor from the power supply and power it directly to confirm it is a motor fault not the speed controler

I didn't realise that it had all read reach that point. It looks like they just vibrate whilst the one I'm dealing with has a rotary action. Would be interesting to see what is in one once it has worn out. I'm guessing a micro controller of some sort & a small amount of memory, probably an oscillator coil with a rare earth magnet and having salvaged usable Li-Po cells from disposable E-cigarettes that wouldn't surprise me either

Homemade Pork Lunch Meat
I like the recipe. I've made and enjoyed similar myself. But.... This is not chemical and additive free, Ordinary salt and curing salt are both most definitely chemicals, they are also the two main additives that are considered the problem by some with processed meat. Particularly the Prague powder, the fact that you can't cure pork with out it doesn't mean it isn't an additive. You could just get away with saying all natural ingredients, but it is far more likely that its been produced in a chemical works, than mined in Chile, or refined from a dung heap, although that is either potassium or ammonium nitrate. Nice instructable though.
Water Casting Copper
bottle of baby oil says liquid paraffin (not the same as paraffin/kerosene/jet A1) and perfume I've used it as a substitute for light lubrication oil in the past as well., avoid mixing mineral and vegetable oils they react to form a gum or if heat is involved a tar/resin something any one who has used a model aircraft diesel engine should know, the fuel is roughly equal parts ether, paraffin (mineral oil) and castor oil(vegetable oil) the ether very rapidly evaporates from the mix and the remaining 2 components gel, I've come across old stock sealed cans of fuel which clearly still contain the ether that have become quite syrupy too.
The instructions that came with my shredder said vegetable oil, I'm guessing it might be slightly less of a problem at the pulp mill when it comes to recycling

whilst being able to rearrange and customise the gears on a cassette is a skill worth learning and one I'm sure most people are not aware is possible. I'm surprised to learn wheels with a built in free wheel are still made. l stand to be corrected but most rear wheels have a standard thread onto which you screw either a freewheel hub and cassette of your choice, or a single fixed gear. a readily available and standard sized spinner tool is all that is needed to remove either and change it over. there are exceptions such as hub gear boxes which only have a single sprocket and built-in freewheel anyway.

carbon dioxide being heavier than air you should be able to remove the lid and replace it with the filament assembly with out too much air getting int the jar.
Its a long time since I did any practical chemistry but I think a couple of spoons of bicarbonate and a similar amount of vinegar ought to produce a couple of liters of carbon dioxide which should be enough to purge the production chamber of air and collect a couple of jars of usable carbon dioxide. I'd start by finding some glass jars and spare lids to fit them. I can see there being a problem with heat conduction in the electrodes supporting the graphite rod, but some how you element and electrodes need to be mounted on one jar lid so it can be screwed on to a jar of carbon dioxide.the generator fit a length of windscreen washer hose or similar to the lid of a soda bottle put your bicarb in the soda bottle keep the vinegar to one side until you are ready to start.fill a similar soda ...see more »Its a long time since I did any practical chemistry but I think a couple of spoons of bicarbonate and a similar amount of vinegar ought to produce a couple of liters of carbon dioxide which should be enough to purge the production chamber of air and collect a couple of jars of usable carbon dioxide.

Tip the vinegar into the soda bottle with the bicarb screw the lid on quickly and let the generated gas displace the water in the other soda bottle. this should have purged the generator of air. move the hose to one of the jars and displace all the water from that screw the lid on with the mouth of the jar still under water repeat with the second jar. The initial reaction may well be quite vigorous and cause vinegar to get expelled along with the gas this is not a problem but it is why I'm suggesting kitchen ingredients rather than hydrochloric acid and lime stone. If you have access to 10ml medicine syringes you could probably inject the vinegar a few ml at a time to get a more controlled reaction. hope this is of use.

some old style paraffin heaters use a circular wick with air coming up both sides to get paraffin to burn with a clean blue flame but that is only part of it they burn with a luminous, smokey yellow flame if the funnel isn't fitted. My guess there is the rising column of hot gas draws in more air quicker with the funnel in place. 8 holes 6mm in diameter seems to be the minimum requirement (about 230sqmm of ventilation) for a standard 't'light to burn properly, that said one of my modified ones burnt quite happily in this containment, which sort of supports the hot gas rising theory. If you follow the link on the last section you can see the work I've already done to get wax vapour to burn fully.
you could try using baking soda and vinigar to produce a jar full of carbondioxide to start with
