I'd hesitate to say you were saving money, Dan.The cost of the energy to melt the cans will be far greater than the value of the aluminum you recycle. This is a very inefficient process for recycling- suitable for hobbyist but not for any large effort.The money saving measure would be to sell the cans to the recycling centre, and then use that money to buy the ingots.
I think you need a lot more detail on your pump, adaptors, nozzles, and how you connected them all.
How much wood do you start with, and how much charcoal do you end up with?
I think the plug looks very weak compared to the weight and forces that might be involved. I think that maybe it might be stronger if you cut a wooden plug that fits flush with the hole, and then use a strong cloth tape to hold it in place. You might even cut a thin rubber gasket that would be wider than the hole to go on the inside, so that nothing could be forced out.This would keep the weight of the ball from crushing the plastic cap if rolled or shifted on to it, or prevent you from getting a comfortable grip if the plastic cap is being pressed into your flesh.
Sounds like you might appreciate this: https://www.instructables.com/id/Cook-EVERYTHING-...
What is the reaction time of the system? How fast does it deploy the anti-fall arm?It also seems like since the servo is directly connected to the arm, that any forces placed upon it will be transmitted back to the servo, which might damage it.
But there are so many losses in generation - > storage -> usage that it is probably far, far more efficient to use the rotation directly. I'd say have a second person use the drill for anything precise.
Since you have already added a micro controller, why not add a few sensors? This could alert her that she is about to bump into something before she does. You could add some IR emitters and receptors that would detect something within an inch or two, and give her an audible or visual alert, or cut off the motor if moving the mount would cause it to bump into something else.
Sounds like you are ready to explore a hex editor. You should try that next.

It took me a few tries before I realized that .pngs do not count as a "bitmap" image.
With a moderate amount of processing, you could get arbitrary maps by using the data from here:http://terrain.partyThe scale would have to be adjusted, but it appears to have excellent coverage of a lot of the world.
I think if you made the back a pivot instead of a fixed support in a slot, you could convert it from a chair to a more conventional turtle form.If the turtle shell was to be held in place with the pivot as well, then you could drape them over the rounded portion of the frame to make it look more like a turtle shell too.
Why not a piece of foam core mounting board? It should be lighter, cheaper and easier to work with than plywood.Also, I think the acid from the plywood will have a negative effect on the poster over time.

Your final picture is a stock image. Why don't you show us what the result looked like?
You've got the right idea, but you probably want to use bigger numbers. Perhaps you could use a d10, or even a d20? That might push it out of the realm of a human being able to crack it by hand.

Welcome to Laser Cutting
Laser Cutting Class
It is a syringe for giving children medicine, and I don't think I'd recommend it. It has four "stops" that make it easy to give a certain dose, but also makes it much harder to clean and prevents you from using the full space. It also only has four measurements listed on the side, rather than a full set of gradations.
Your link is mislabeled- it should be "make it your own".
Speed, power, and make/model of the laser you used might be a nice start...

I voted for you because I think the idea has merit, but I think your could use a few more steps to really flesh things out.

Given the small size of the machine, have you compared this to the gain you would get without using it? I suspect that the actual cause of the "walking" is GPS jitter, and that you would get .02 KM per 10 minutes simply by leaving the phone alone without even turning it.Given that your machine is about a tenth of meter in size, and most phone GPS is accurate to within a few meters, I think that it simply is unlikely to be doing much.
