Tell us about yourself!
needs_more_to_do: stay away from power tools, you'll live longer and keep your fingers and face intact. You really need to listen to others. Other people just like you, who scoff at safety advice, are missing fingers, teeth, eyes, arm muscle, etc. If you really want to mangle yourself, you're in for a lifetime of pain.
1 HP is the ability of 1 Belgian type horse to life 250,000 pounds 1 foot. If a band saw motor has 1/2 HP, that means you are fighting 125,000 pounds of pull. You are also talking about blades that can cut through oak or steel, as well the band saw is probably not bolted to the floor, making that a falling hazard. So, remove the tie! :)
Gives me a reason to buy ties at garage sales...... ;)
For the sharp edges, cover them with tape of any kind. That will prevent cuts.
You might want to use a book that is just like all the others you have or it might stick out. If you have a lot of modern science book, use a thick science book. It will hide better.
Using your sledge hammer side as a small anvil is brilliant! One of those not-thought-of ideas that is really cool. Small anvils you buy are really iron, so they are not real anvils. But, a sledge hammer is all steel. :)
You could sell them to others. Copper will be a precious metal in a post apocalypse day. It may have some healing properties. I actually used a copper bracelet on my arm when I was having pain, and the pain left, that was a year ago.
It is also called, "Osage Orange" as the Osage Indians used them to make bows, and is probably one of the best woods to use for bows as you don't need a lot to make an effective bow.
Awesome instructable! I was just doing some research today and found this technique was created by Lucien Yeomans in WW1 to make millions of artillery shells. It only took 7 hours to create a 10-ton lathe vs. 6 months for a traditional lathe. After WW1 ended, they scrapped all the lathes.
You could even use 2 whole straws to store really long items like 20" long.
Or Honey! Keep some in your car in case someone has a low blood sugar attack. Or you want to attract bees. Or bees with low blood sugar attacks.
Great idea! Put needles, other hard objects, in them, then you can double-straw them like you said, maybe even tape it w/reusable tape to seal & unseal and reseal as needed. :)
Great idea on the lipstick!!! My wife is gonna kill me tho....
You could package shampoo and conditioner in single use packs. This helps regulate the size of each use and prevents the tops from opening and getting it everywhere.
