Those are fixed pins, I was wondering about the sliding pin in the c shaped channel. Is it just to limit how far the file can open and close? the channel is on both sides but I don't see a hinge pin.
Making the cards will probably get you in the same trouble that the scrabble board instructable got into - blocked for copyright.
How much vibration is there with the clamp not being balanced?
Can I find out more about how the folding works? I can't find any information on the file.
Don't you need a steel reinforcement piece in the shank for strength? especially with basswood?
No vents in the bottom for air?
Have you made a shoe last that matches your feet yet? it's a form in the shape of your foot so you can shape the shoe more easily.
look up lathe steady rest. You put a wheel attached to the scroll saw table just before the cut area to prevent bowing and vibration.
The two dowels at slightly different cuts, about a saw width different so that one is cut on the 'inside' of the line and the other on the 'outside' of the line.
congratulations, you've made fiberglass : )
And how many fingers did you loose as a 5 year old?yes, it could be dangerous, but eating a steak that's off the grill can cause cancer. It's a matter of degree of risk. You make it sound like plutonium when the risk is more like chest x-ray or cross country aircraft ride.
where CA is water soluble, do you have any problem with the finish being touched/used?
Different material, different angle. If you are going to the trouble of sharpening them, then make a specialty toolhttp://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/threads/51865-quot-4-facet-quot-vs-quot-split-point-quot-drill-grind-definition
"...re-temper up to HARD before welding..." so, get it the right hardness and then...heat it with welding? Why bother with the tempering if you are going to ruin the temper by welding? (I use the edges of the anvil constantly, and a soft edge when trying to shape anything but flat would be a nightmare.)
Metal fatigue causes hardness and brittleness. Hardness means it won't bend, but metal fatigue is caused by bending. Try bending a coat hanger wire until it breaks - not so easy is it? You had to find a pre-stressed area (like the hook area where the wire is bent suddenly) didn't you? or hold the wire in a pair of pliers so that you could get a sharp bend, Hmmm?Not saying it didn't happen to your dad, but i'm not saying that manufacturing techniques haven't changed in the last 40+ years either...
Cans have a LOT of slag in them when you try to ;melt them. Try squeezing the blob of slag against the side of the crucible to push out as much liquid metal as you can. Better sources of metal are old aluminum furniture, tubing, cast engine parts, parts of old hard drives or heat sinks off electronics. Best is if you can get castings to melt down because the alloy is created to cast very well where cans are almost pure aluminum and are softer when made into something else.
..measured in cubic millimeters per minute...very difficult to cast at that volume : )
Anodizing is creating a thick, porous aluminum oxide surface on aluminum metal which can then be dyed various colors and sealed to retain the color.https://www.finishing.com/faqs/anodizing.shtml

you need to put some kind of resistance between the battery and the plug. Old way of doing it was a light bulb in series so the power goes through the bulb. Look at the cranking amps of the battery - you are putting all that (200-400 amps) through the short circuit that is the glow plug.
But you can...at about a billion dollars an ounce.
If the tag breaks off completely, there is a lever inside that has to be pulled to loosen the grip on the teeth. A round loop won't work, the area inside the zipper has to be strait across.
Use a hole punch and put a hole in the side for the handle so that the tape can't let go or slip. Haven't decided if having the knots on the inside or outside is better. Inside, they catch the tools more, but outside they catch on everything else.
Fiberglass resin, i was thinking Bondo when you were talking about car resin
how do you get the iridescence on the headdress feathers? It doesn't look like paint, is it some kind of embossing powder?
Next time I have a migraine and are curled up in a dark room from the pain of every little noise or touch or movement, I'll jump up and..grind..in the blender...or even stand up...and make tea..........Please don't use words you don't know the meaning of.
Epoxy, but thin stuff so you don't have to deal with bubbles, which means you do have to worry about holding it in place so it doesn't sink.There is a 'fake water' epoxy that is clear. Usually sold in big craft stores for floral displays.I saw a display of a beer bottle in the process of exploding (steampunk time stop experiment). He used clear gel beads and water, carefully placing each piece as he filled the jar.
By USA Federal law, legal to make, not legal to sell (and must be destroyed when you die, it can't be inherited either). States vary wildly in it's legality.
what is the name of the kit or where can you buy one?
New phones and tablets need 2 amp power supplies to charge at all (old ones need 1 amp or less). Is this going to provide enough to charge or even prevent discharge while using the phone?
If you can't give the names/part numbers of the electronic parts, you could at least give the name of the kit and where to get it from.
Not a swan, a desk.
Better contrast images:
no stop valve at the bottom? will make it difficult to get the last half of the water out
Are you going through the sole at an angle or cutting a grove on the bottom between the holes to prevent the yarn from fraying from rubbing on the floor?
a bristle-bot without the bristles. Is the motor intentionally out of balance for the vibration?
Do you have any power drop-off at low speeds? I'm wondering if I am better off with pulleys or if a speed control will work.
How do you get decent stability with legs that long and thin?
If you leave my family name out of the discussion I'll leave your choice of browsers out, mr torr.anecdotal evidence is not proof. If I've seen bigfoot and never been arrested, is that causality or coincidence? In the 1920's with only late stage cancer being treated, yes the success rate was tiny. With some lymphomas, the success rate is tiny. looking at more modern and overall figures are closer to 60%.bronchitis is difficult to treat with blood delivered antibiotics for the same reasons as ear infections - there isn't any contact between the source and the infection. Do you expect antibiotics to treat dandruff? why do you think the silver worked? posibly because it's poisonous and killed the bacteria by contact?
I guess the question is WHY do they spin and not just slide on the mirror?

You are going to need something like 60 amps to get much for gas. Anything over 3 volts just creates heat (and steam) and wastes power (electricity and the flame being cooled by the water vapor). Cheaper and easier to use the electric power to make an electrical kiln.
Hit the end to flatten it, clip it into an arrowhead shape and you will have space for the shavings so you don't have to keep pulling it out and clearing it every twist or two.
sounds extraordinarily uncomfortable, like walking in downhill ski boots. Wouldn't it be better to adjust to top area with a more controlled and localized lacing structure? you could still use the heel to contain the controls, you just need to provide channels for the laces in the sole area so the channels are semi rigid and don't pull the sides (rather than the top) tight.
"The idea of using electricity to convert rust back into iron is not a new one, and electrolysis has been used for metal restoration by collectors and archaeologists for decades and the results can be very impressive, with shiny metal being visible after proper treatment." http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/andyspatch/rust.htm"Easy to use; quickly loosenes and dissolves rust from metal surfaces." http://www.rustcheck.com/product/enviro-rust-wash/
Needs a picture of the engraver so people understand how it's done. without the picture, it's confusing to find out if it's done with a sand blaster, acid, paint or diamond/carbide bit
Thank you for the pillowcase and towel siphon tricks
you forgot to show how the grinder is attached.
Percussion angle, below the center line, how to grip the glass and in what (looks like terrycloth), abrading the edge for a better strike, striking v pressure flaking...talking about any of them would help.http://cavemanchemistry.com/oldcave/projects/stone/bottle.html
Mach 3 is a $200 license for hobby use.
Anyone figured out how to keep your pajama pants up if you actually put something in the pocket? Beside making them so tight they aren't comfortable any more?
Ah, but what is safe for you might not be safe for me. Look up the deffinition of LD50 as an example.
Look for 'fan casting' as a variation on this.
Voltage is to low to do much. It's the same as touching both terminals of a car battery with your hands - to much resistance to let enough current through to feel.
Electrolysis is supposed to convert as much of the rust back to steel as possible. I think the rust wash is supposed to remove the rust instead of converting it.
Definitions would help. Shaggy?What is the purpose of the poolsh?
Sounds like a science lab : )The steel becomes brittle, but harder - you may want to try a scratch test with a file (glass is usually to hard). Show that annealed metal is softer (heat to red and let cool) and that it can be hardened again.If you take and harden the steel, remove the black iron oxide with sandpaper, then heat until you get a rainbow of colors on the steel (test the particular steel, not all show the colors well) with different hardness as the color changes.
Where copper oxides kill plant roots, did you spray the insides of the pipe with clear coat?
Amazing - there are 9 different transformers in this one instructable. And none of them are wired the same way...
i've had good luck with bottle glass and bits of marbles. reds tend to burn away
I've seen copper wire work well. gold and silver foils will work, but make sure you don't get anodized aluminum that's just gold or silver color
The nitric acid to dissolve the silver is the difficult part to get.
any record of fillers for color, stability or smoother molding? these recipes tend to warp badly for me and I'm thinking cellulose fiber might even out drying, a filler like talc or graphite would reduce shrinkage, something like that.
Very misleading title. This describes how to create an outline for parts, witch may or may not include joints. Nothing on using bezier curves to create motion pathes.
