Instead of a 90 you could have used a tee and not had to drill a hole. I would have used some black silicone around the wire at the hole or a rubber grommet to help protect the wire insulation from getting damaged over time. I realize you didn't even use the metal pipe after you cabinet mounted the box but s warning probably should go into your ible in case some wiring novices give this a shot. I really like how smooth this ible reads and your wiring diagram image is very nice. Also those lever type wago connectors loo great. I use the wago push type connector instead of wire nuts for most all electrical work I do an they are great.
120v mains voltage would definitely damage all USB devices. You should definitely check out the sleek modern direct in wall USB chargers like this ible uses that eleminate the wall wart charger.

Hi that's a nice looking work desk you re purposed. I'm curious why you used the silicone/latex paint mix instead of just getting a few tubes of construction adhesive? also they make glue spreaders that have little teeth that make spreading glue to a consistent height really easy and I think it may have made attaching the tiles easier for your desk top.
Also I may look into the idea of using the paint silicone mix for a home project I have coming up. Fly by night contractor did a terrible job installing our shower and it needs a bead of silicone a inch tall and almost .75 inches think which is more think than silicone should be spread, to keep it from leaking into tbe basements at tbe joints.Oh one more thing maybe some.more pics of the end results especially the filter and such.
Regular silicone and silicone 2 won't adhere and cure properly when applied on top of existing cured silicone according to the label of the actual silicone itself. Also on the labels it states that silicon will not cure properly if laid deeper than half inch thick which is why I'm interested in trying the paint mix you exposed to me to allow thicker beads.

How to Build a Premium Sous Vide Cooker
this is a nice ible I just doubt every head unit is going to have 5v as easily accessible as this one, especially older units that don't have usb. I found it much easier to buy a cheap head unit($40 usd) that actually didn't have cd player (as CD is quickly dying out) and has bluetooth, sd slot and fm radio. my soldering skills I would probably have killed my old head unit anyways, this way I sold it for half the price of a new one.

can the leveling bolts enter the area your foot is in? seems like that could be painful if you actually "leveled" the leveling pegs...This is for sure out of the box design and looks nice to boot (pun intended) and I am interested in seeing new prototypes.
keep an eye out for junk push mowers for good cheap plastic wheels. great project.
wow. I want to say great ible but I actually didn't have time to read it before babies woke up crying g but I did want to tell you wow. As a kid who grew up in tbe landlocked Midwest but went lake boating all the time I can see and know as a boat maintenance helper that this is insane huge project.There are tons of art cars that vary from cheap to more money than I will ever know but all "art boats" I have ever even heard of are the latter and that is only really if you consider design art (it is for sure but art should not start at $100,000+) This is an amazing statement and stellar rendition. Your art and group colaberation have touched me. Thanks.
this is really great way to make a bike much more practical. if I was in good shape I would totally use this. since I'm fat and lazy I have made something similiar for my atv. atv have nice front and back Storage racks but they really don't do well for bulk cargo. in my small rural town we can ride them on the streets and I use mine as a daily driver when it's warm. i utilize a plastic tote as a "trunk" to haul cargo, groceries, basically anything that fits.I want to hit the I made this button because our projects are similiar in nature (I even attached my tote with u bolts lol) but I don't know if the spirit is truly the same but I will attach a photo and thus is a great ible and project.

Power Bar Cord Organizer
Great project. I love "out of the box" furniture. few random suggestions.... fill in the space between the bottom of the matress support with storage drawers just because...line the underside with LED strips for custom lighting.Also are you still using a box spring? you probably don't need one with that frame. Most modern box sprigs are really only to give a solid surface for matress. they usually don't even contain sprigs
Do you think you could upload some detailed shots of this project? Specifically of the up and down motion of the reflector on the vertical shaft and how the reflector tilts? also what holds the reflector to the horizontal shaft? thanks

Cool Shield for Water Gun Fight (Bonus: How to Set Up a GREAT Water Gun Fight)
I know this has been said already but no change has yet been made but OXYGEN IS VERY FLAMMABLE AND CRAZY DANGEROUS. SCIENCE.... The air all around us is a combination of nitrogen ~80% and is inert and not flammable, next is oxygen which is ~17% and is required for any fire or firey explosion then ~3% carbon dioxide which is not flamable. Basically all standard fires happen in air that is 17% oxygen, fire needs oxygen to occur. Think how devestating and powerful fire is in general.....More oxygen creates stronger, hotter, harder to extinguish fire. I think you may know this otherwise why own oxygen tanks? The golden rule for fire is known as the fire triangle...Heat or spark, OXYGEN, and fuel. If you throw enough oxygen at something you can almost burn anything.

The golden rule for fire is known as the fire triangle...Heat or spark, OXYGEN, and fuel. If you throw enough oxygen at something you can almost burn anything. The drips of oxagen saturated hot slab from a metal cutting blow torch can literally cause dirt to ignite.So imagine someone follows your ible and feels there is no danger in cutting oxygen tanks and saturates themselves with oxygen causing the air near body/trapped in clothes and hair to raise to 30% to 50% O2 and they try to light a ciggerate or even drop a peice of steel and it sparks....That person will light on fire like a candle wick. It would be like pouring gasoline on a human and then throwing a a match.You probably don't want to be responsible for that tragic accident. Please change your ible. Sorry I hate being saftey police but this is a big one.Second saftey note. I don't know about those little bottles but the big bottles of oxygen are pressurized at a few 1000 psi and become rockets that will blow through concrete walls if damaged.... Check utube and mythbusters. I would mention it if your going to add more saftey info.All that aside it's a cute project that looks nice. Those little bottles are generally trash when empty and it's a solid way to recycle then to make them have use beyond their purpose.

Nice light setup and I like your documentation and photos explaining the setup. Couple little thoughts... For the background behind the bulbs I would think something very shiny like aluminum foil or a mirror may help bounce out more light. Or even some bright white foam core or poster board may preform better than painted wood.Second thought, if you could eleminate the natural light then you could custom white balence to the light temperature of your light you made. I cannot remember if you are shooting stills or video but it's easy to adjust exposure (shutter speed) to use less light but get perfect exposure. For moving video maybe eliminate the natural light and build a second light pack for more light. Pro studios never have windows and rely entirely on electric created light.Ob...see more »Nice light setup and I like your documentation and photos explaining the setup. Couple little thoughts...

excellent job on this unique bike. Props on not only learning welding skills but I really love how well you finished it out with the proper paint job. Many learn to weld projects including many of my early ones were never painted or just some quick rattle job lol.Keep if up. A small welding tip. Don't stop. Or if you do go a long ways between welding don't expect to be as good as you were when you sat it down x months or years ago. It takes practice and continued practice to keep it up. Take care.
Car Wheel Bicycle - the Learn to Weld Project
It totally is a hover board. Think Marty McFly back to the future ii hover board. Just with wheels instead of actually hovering.Just because it's not the same as the "name brand that explodes in flames" hover board doesn't mean it's not in the spirit of a hover board.Sure the author could have named it a self propelled moving, brakeless, balence board. Or a battery powered land surf board. Or even just a sweet riding around board. Point is they may call it whatever they feel fits their machine. He could rewrite the entire ible into a matrix parody and use terms from the film switched in for all the parts and call it the nebacnezzer mark iii lol. But I digress and may use that for my next ible.
http://hendohover.comthis is a real hoverboard and there are a few others close. Lexus has a solid looking prototype. But seriously this is still cool.I love riding my motorcycle. If I lean forward so i cannot see any of the bike it feels like flying. I know it's not but why split hairs to be overly picky.
That's a good looking modification. I grew up on a farm and have done a lot of moving things on chains with a loader bucket and I appreciate your saftey claims. We have never used a setup like this and it is superior to our quick method of just clipping the grab hook over the side lip of the bucket for light loads.My Dad's loader bucket has a 45 degree brace inside the middle of tbe bucket that we wrap a chain around for heavier loads and pulling old hedge posts. Maybe someday just for fun we may build a mount like this. I could see putting it one one the back of tbe bucket to make it easier on the chain for post pulling. Great ible
Thank you for that. I need to add more photos still but I'm getting the farthest from comfort this week when I start putting the meter roof and siding on.
Leather Underbust Harness
very nice project. Would it have been easier to take the belt sander outside to make less mess?Also I have heard of gloves getting sucked into machines before. Same with rings and necklaces and most jewelry. Even long hair is dangerous. The big saftey issue with the belt sander and those leather straps was that you needed gloves in the first place. they seemed a bit tiny for that tool. Maybe holding them with pliers would have been better because I bet you would have scraped up your fingers without the gloves.A second possible solution might be to recur the straps longer and screw several them down to a peice of scrap wood then sand them down with a hand held belt sander. Or screw them to a 2x4 one and hit it on the sander. Good luck and keep at it.
That's a great duel use table that doesn't take hardly any space. I really like it. If I ever downsize to a smaller work area i may make that
