Welcome to Arduino
Will definitely have to try. I just bought a 10,000x USB microscope. Will be interesting to see what the DNA glob looks like. Does it matter if the alcohol is 70% or 91%?
Well, in a since it is sous vide. But the condensed milk is left in the original can when boiling it. I don't know what would happen if you tried to put it in a cooking bag in the traditional sous vide method. Might be worth a try though. :-)
I've thought about putting glue in to the hole just before screwing in the insert. I can't drill all the way through because the bottom of the bench will actually be a side wall that is exposed to the elements when the bench is closed.
I had to remove several screws that weren't broken, but the special bit (12.5mm Torx) they needed was impossible to find. Using a Dremel tool, I cut a straight-slot in to the head of the screw then used a screw driver to remove it.Your technique is great when the screw head is flush with the surface it is screwed in to. My process works when there is enough of the screw head above the surface. I had 10 of these to remove, and while your process would have worked, it probably would have been a bit tedious. :-)I am going to search Instructables to see if anyone else has posted this yet, otherwise I plan on doing an instructable for it.

Yeah, after trying this, I'd be in real danger if I could just go buy it ready made off the shelf.
I can see this method working much better since the water will not boil off. I'm guessing that the water\can get hot enough to complete the caramelizing in 30 minutes instead of 3 hours boiling in a stove-top pot. My wife does a lot of canning. Guess next time I need a few cans of this stuff I will be borrowing her pressure cooker. :-)
I did it for 3 hours. But that's just how I learned to do it. But one of the commenters below (dignarueda) says she does it in a pressure cooker for 20-30 minutes. If you are going to boil it as I did, then maybe experiment with different times. Maybe 2 hours at first, then extend the time to see what time come out good for you. Remember to judge the caramel AFTER it has cooled to room temperature.

I was just joking with a friend that I couldn't watch this election's presidential debates for fear of throwing something at the TV. So I thought to make a TV screen protector similar to yours.
This is what I was thinking to use too.
I was thinking similarly about remote control or beer bottle....while watching presidential debates.
This looks like a great recipe. The only thing I might do different is the serving. I will put it in to either a hollowed out puff pastry or a sour dough bread bowl. I'll let you know how it turns out. :-)

I have a TIG welder, but it's such a pain to get out and use. So unless I have a major project requiring welding, it stays put away. But I did think of soldering it. The only reason I didn't solder it is I won't need to put a lot of torque on the thumb part. I have broken smaller bolts trying to remove them that were secured with Loctite Red. So in this aplicatin, I think that is good enough. :-)
This might be possible if the screws were a small thread. Plus, I was using what I had laying around. But the heads are V shaped, so maybe this will work. I'll give it a try and post how it goes.
I thought about that, AFTER I had made this Instructable. I need to make a bunch more so I will try it.

Cool but you took my idea...just because you posted it 4 years before I thought of it.... :-)I was driving home today and was thinking about the 1,000's of zip ties I have and needing a way to organize them. I have some PVC pipe and started thinking about it. Of course, I don't want to duplicate another person's project as if it were new so I searched for "zip tie organizer" and here we are.If I change anything when I make mine, I'll share, but I like this one pretty well so I may just do it exactly the same.
Will definitely save this one. Awhile back we had a yard sale of donated items for our dog rescue. we had a LOT of clothing. My wife had gotten some portable clothes racks. she proceded to put 2 or 3 times the weight limite worth of clothing on each rack. When sitting still, the racks were fine. But as soon as we tried to move them they collapsed.The next time I will build one of these.

I made a similar device but used three 6VDC batteries to make an 18 VDC power source. I needed it for a water mister\fan for our chickens when we had 105+ degree heat. The original battery would only last an hour or so. This battery pack ran the fan for two days.Any ways, for the ammo can I used this product from Harbor Freight Tools and it worked perfectly. http://www.harborfreight.com/ammo-box-61451.html And for $8 it's much cheaper than trying to buy the metal ammo cans from a surplus store.
p.s. Our cats would disagree with you.
Domestic cats have never been and never will be a part of the natural world. They were strictly created by man, for man. They do not belong out doors, other than maybe on a farm or other controlled environment (i.e. many theme parks actively maintain feral cat colonies to keep rodents under control). While I do agree with supporting feral cat colonies, but they should be spayed or neutered then left to finish their life out the only way they know.
