You can still get analog photo film, film cameras and processing, but nowadays people are calling it lomography....
Hi Stan,For your book of stereo photos, it is possible to train your eyes to view them with no equipment. They are often printed about the same distance apart as your average eyes (PD). If you hold up the page and look at the world beyond, your eyes will more or less look straight forward and with practice you can look down and see the images without your eyes re-adjusting. Each eye has to see the same thing in the other image so that the automatic tracking system you have keeps the feature in alignment. Once you have learned this is becomes very easy to do spot-the-difference puzzles. It is easier if you have lenses (like the viewer) to fool your eyes into adjusting to the infinity setting, you could try using a couple of identical magnifying glasses, maybe take apart some cheap opera glasses or binoculars... Method 2: copy the pictures and separate them so that you can put the left on the right and the right on the left. Put them down on the table. Hold your finger in front of them and look at that, move it up and down until the pictures seem to align and transfer your attention to the pictures. This way your eyes are pointing together like for close work so it is a bit more natural but each eye sees the picture on the opposite side, which is why you have to swop them over. This is all much easier to do than to describe! Have fun!
Nice technique! But for someone who doesn't know, what actually is Mod Podge? Is it PVA glue perhaps?
Haven't finished yet, cause I am waiting for replacement ball bearings, but wanted to thank you for posting this. So far its really helped! Like Stechi I had problemens removing the central motor assembly, as it was stuck. But I was able to loosen it using 2 screwdrivers. So far it seems like this instructable is going to save me some money and teach me a few things along the way. Thanks!
That's really nice. Well explained, thank you.
Hi Stechi,Perfect instructions, very good photos and worthwhile tips. The only problem I had was lifting the central motor assembly, as it was jammed. Overall cost about £7 and about an hour on either side. And I saved about £144 (cost of the motor) plus the engineers charges, but most importantly, I can say that I FIXED IT. Thanks a lot.
Very elegant design, well done! And I have some oak veneer somewhere...
Hi Bill, and Dicorn,Many thanks for your thanks, it's good to know this works for people. I must have been in a funny mood when I wrote it, but I had saved a wodge of cash and was very pleased! The machine is still going.
Thanks for the instructions and info on the bearings required.Ordered mine before attempting the repair.My were stuck in the armature but using my bench drill as a press the were soon extracted.£6.02 total cost and an hour 15 minutes to complete, took my time didn't want to damage the bearing housings.Many thanks again for posting this article, thank heavens for the Internet, saved about £150.
This candle is wicked!You've got me thinking. My guess is that you need to get more air into the flame somehow, to improve on the lost energy. Maybe some kind of ring shaped candle that can let air into the middle as well as round the edge. Many ordinary wicks perhaps? And I wonder if actually it would be worth dealing with the absorption of heat into the pan, as a lot of the hot gases produced will miss the target, and something about the loss of heat from the top and sides of the pan? Maybe try an energy saving kettle that has copper coils on the bottom.
Could use a little more detail around step 4! You can get back in and edit your ible, it's not too late. Looking forward to it!
Interesting! But if you have enough space for a mirror, wouldn't it be better to put in another solar panel? Depends on the relative costs, but I don't have the data to work it out. Also, both the mirror and the panel stop the space from being used to grow crops which absorb CO2 and store energy in a neat way - has anyone done the sums on that alternative?
Great set of ideas! I will be trying some of these!

Desoldering - I use a nice desoldering tool given to me by a TV repair man about 40 years ago. It consists of a hammer from a piano (as a handle) with a piece of stainless steel wire stuck in the end. When you desolder, you can push it through the hole to clear it. The solder gets on the end of the wire then falls off when you pull it out.
Great stuff, I wish there was a thread generator in 123D!

Laser Cut Air Horn
Easy to make bending press brake with flexible hinge
Really nice job! There has to be a way of reducing the burning without using tape, that is too much of a hassle. Acrylic doesn't burn when you laser it, maybe acrylic lacquer would be worth a try (wait till I get to the Fab Lab next week!)BTW I do a lot of jigsaw puzzles and I think it would be a even better if you could vary the shapes of the pieces so they are not all H's and not all interchangeable. I know it's a lot of work!
Laser Cut Hinged Wooden Box (4"x4")
Great ible, very nice video. You have a great set of machines there, maybe could use some better guards!I thought you might be interested in something I made, similar but different, done with slots each side at right angles, no drilling. The slots can be seen but it can make more flexible shapes. I did it by hand!
