Magazines that are like 'Instructables'?

Are there any magazines, besides maybe "ReadyMade" that are similar to 'instructables'?  Love the website, but I also like DIY type magazines, and 'ReadyMade' is the closest thing I can find.  Any ideas would be appreciated!  Thank you!

Best/Worst Magazines

Please forgive me if this topic has already been discussed in the forums. With the holidays up and coming, it seemed like a potentially good time to look into getting some magazines for monthly reading material. That said, what are your favorite (and least favorite) magazines? --Purduecer

realistic firing mechanisms.

Has anyone developed a detachable magazine with internal follower mated to a weapon which isolates the cocking and chambering of a round? i.e. the weapon is automatically chambered when the ram rod is cocked.

K'NEX Magazine Comparisons - 5.56 NATO, STANAG Magazine

On thing that makes any K'NEX gun replica more accurate is the magazine. Trust me, if your magazine is to big or to small, it will make the whole gun look bad. As this is the case, I decided to "clear up" the small argument about the size of 5.56 NATO magazines, as some people are incorrect on the size of K'NEX magazine that they use. As you see in the pictures below, TD's magazine (yellow connecter - white rod - yellow connecter) is more accurate than the other type (white connecter - green rod - white connecter). The latter version (white connecter - green rod - white connecter) is quite a few centimeters too long, and is more accurate for some 7.62x51 replica K'NEX guns. The last pic is of my Dad's Bushmaster Carbon 15. -The Red Book of Westmarch

Ripped off by Hearst Mazines(SCAM company)

I'm wondering if anyone here has ever subscribed to magazines such as Popular Magazines. Four months ago I subscribed through Hearst Magazines paid by credit card, thinking Popular Magazines is a pretty well recognised magazines. First two months I could put up with thinking there might be some error. Writing to the people in Hearst Magazine only resulted in auto-reply messages. Third month there was one reply with a case i.d.  At first I thought I was getting somewhere. Still, nothing happened. I wrote to them again showing some frustration, I asked whether I will be getting my first issue this November or next November. The reply was: "Thank you for contacting Popular Mechanics. We have extended your subscription so it will continue through the November 2011 issue. Thank you, Popular Mechanics Andrew   Customer's email address: aoandy@yahoo.com Case id: 12214311 " What does that mean? I have written to Consumer Protection. I doubt any action will come soon enough. But I am writing here as a warning to anyone and everyone to beware of this scamming organisation. If you feel the need to rid the world of such people, I encourage you to spread this message. Thank you all. We have received your subscription order.

Oooo, look what I came across today....

I was out and about today, going to local areas of interest, and we stopped at a little shop I hadn't been in for years. In amongst all the old tools, and bits of paraphernalia, were all these magazines (Popular Mechanics, Science and Mechanics, etc.) from the time of my youth. I was THRILLED, and so I started going through them. Well, I would have loved to have taken the whole box of them (about 50 or so) home with me, but at $3 a pop, I decided on just 2. The Popular Mechanics magazine from the year of my birth (not the month, this one was a Jan. issue). and the Science and Mechanics issue is from Aug. 1960. Neither is remarkable in any specific way (excepting the birth year one). At the same shop I also found an original copy of Gimbels Handy Book For Boys. © 1933I am thrilled at this find, not that it is terribly valuable as an investment, the cover - binding is not so good, but at $5, it has a treasure trove of info and tips, very similar to "The Boy Mechanic, yet different too.

Solution to Knex P90 magazine?

Here is what I believe the solution to a great, working P90 magazine. This magazine holds many grey and blue spacers. It also will shoot them, so its also the gun at the same time. It can launch the spacers up to 20FT using 1 rubberband. It hasn't been shot using two. But this magazine/ gun could be great used on a P90. So if anybody wants to build it and start working on a P90, have at it! I'd only like the credit for this concept, thats all. And if you successfully build the P90 I'll award you with a patch! Well anyways, tell me what you think!

I've read somewhere that you can use magazines for etching PCB's. now, that seems perfect (if it works) becouse of the reuse, its cheap, and it works :D but, 2 questions came to me: first, wouldnt the ink already in the magazines (text, pictures, etc) mess up the toner transfer? and how about the size of the paper? just cut it down to A4/A5 format using one of those big knive cutting tools?

Bolt Action, Removable Magazine Slingshot Sniper rifle ( L96 )

Help me guys. Im planning on making a L96 sniper rifle, however the main features have never been on the same gun before. This features are slingshot, bolt action and magazine fed. The idea i had was you pull the rubberband back onto the trigger mech ( maybe something like on Jollex's Dash gun ) then use the bolt to push the bullet from the magazine ( preferably removable ) up in front of the trigger. This means that it would be a repeating slingshot with no friction from the magazine. The main problem would be the bullet staying in front of the trigger but im sure it could be solved. If anyone wants to collaborate your more than welcome :-) Bhuty
