I was kind of thinking along those lines also. Since those are no longer being made it would be wise to conserve the ones that are left for things like vintage circuits that require them. There is a market for selling them still.
Just a thought --- While using strong magnets to hang screwdrivers is a nice convience you need to be aware that it can make the tips magnetic. This can be a nice thing but also a bad thing. I have magnetized some screwdrivers on purpose because it can really help with holding small screws while you try to manuver them into place. Most of the time this is not a problem. But there are some places that using a magnetic screwdriver can damage sensitive components. So you need to watch out for that. if a motherboard has directions that say not to use any magnetic tools around it you need to heed the warning.

I really enjoyed the depth you went into
please make more- I really enjoy your cantor and the engineering banter! Alot of this I already knew, but honestly this was 100x more entertaining than any magazine I've ever read! a quick trasliteration for the hipsters: "you rocked my socks off"
HiI just added a step more on the olive piece. I improved it.Also have another piece in progress that I will add in the next few days.
Hi! Really impressed with your projects. Please post more as you experiment with different woods.I have an interesting piece of driftwood that I thought of turning into a light somehow... LEDs and epoxy might do it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for the comment, I was beginning to wonder since there had been none up to this point. I am going to add another piece (a few more steps) that I intended to include but I am still waiting for the LEDs to get here. I am adding a blue to mix with the white, and maybe a green also. The mail is always slowest when your waiting for something. I had another piece made of cedar that I decided not to include because it just didn't look that good. The epoxy soaked into the wood and turned it very dark. So not all woods give the same result. I will have to try putting some mixed epoxy in the freezer. Right now I have been making small batches that I can use completely so I don't waste any. I worked for Skill in Chicago many years ago at one of their plants. Not anything close to research, I was a foreman at a distribution and packaging plant. We had a small quality control lab there that I found to be really interesting. They did all kinds of crazy things. They would randomly pull finished tools out of the stock pallets and then "test" them. They would take them up to a balcony and throw them onto the concrete floor to see if they got damaged. One guy used to clamp them in a big vise and turn the power on to them and time how long it took for them to burn up. Basically they destroyed them to find out how much punishment they could take. Like hanging weights on the cords to see how much it took to rip it out of the housing. A job where you break stuff on purpose so you can report on what it took to break it. How cool is that.
Fabulous ible, I'm a dog guy but I like your cat... How'd you get her to spread claws ... soo neat !!!BTW I have friend, Loui Vassos, who used two part epoxy and the unused part was kept in a deep freezer to be pulled out whenever he needed to bond stuff at work for Skill Saw Research lab in Chicago, back in the day...
