    A Marking Gauge You Can't Buy

    Looks super cool - what does it do? Seriously, I don't know about marking gauges but I do lots of tinkering. Do you just make marks with it the way you would a ruler and pencil? Can you show us a video marking something?

    How to Buy an Ex-Ambulance

    Gotcha. You said you couldn't drive either, was confused. Yes they don't look like they are especially tall inside.

    Wait you're less than 6' tall and you can't drive an ambulance because of your height? Please explain. I am 6' tall and I drive a Saturn sedan just fine. Are ambulances much smaller than they look?

  • Basic installation Instructions for DIY wood fired oven kit.

    I'm in the US so won't be getting my hands on the kit. Can I ask, are the dome pieces cast from 2-piece molds, or are they open molded somehow? I was going to construct a negative from styrofoam and just deal with trying to get the walls consistent. Hadn't considered a 4-piece dome. I love the size of yours, this is about what I'm trying to do. Thanks for posting!

    3D Printed Record

    First off, you've got bloody good taste in music. Thank you for not printing any Beatles tracks . . . that would be fine, but . . .Next, I'm shocked you can hear anything at all printing this stuff. It's fascinating. Obviously the higher the frequency, the higher the resolution needed. Prints of older music containing less fidelity will naturally sound closer to what we're used to hearing, due to the lack of upper harmonics. At any rate, what I'm really wondering here is, someone needs to write a new slicer, or whatever software, that can route the printer in circles. I clearly hear the "sawing" of the needle traversing the lines that are created by the printhead going at 90º angles all the time. Shouldn't we be trying to print this stuff in a spiral?

Just a thought. The resolution requirements would actually be less if the material were deposited in a spiral. The resolution requirements of printing curves using only right angles is far beyond where we're at for now.Thoughts?
