Here's an unfinished (barely started) project that doesn't even deserve a Slideshow. I was inspired by a friend's oversized Homer Simpson Pez dispenser.

This would be a Duff-Man large enough to hold and displense six U.S. standard (12 on) aluminum cans of ... beverage.

I haven't built it, don't have properly dimensioned drawings, and trivially no photographs of it in operation ;-) And two GIFs do not a decent Slideshow make.

Well, I must have at leat 6-12 unfinished ibles, that I haven't had either the time nor the resources to "build" and get them together. Most are just ideas that I know will work, when I can get to them along with being able to get the materials. . .

I took the description of this group to include such things (unbuilt designs) as well as undesigned builds :-) Given the other stuff you've done, I think some of us would find your designs interesting to see.

Well, the description in this forum asks for those that have been completed but not written up etc. Mine, I have a general idea on how to put them together, and on some even a general schematic, but nothing made yet.

I think the groups description includes "un-finished " works. Slideshow them and add it to the group. I would love to see some quick snaps of some potentially nonI'ble things your working on. The basic idea was to collect projects/ideas etc that have been created from others ideas/I'bles or those ideas still in the works that would not be seen/lost if not posted within this group...

No problems... It's not necessarilly the act of posting it, just more the orgainisation of items that may have gone missing... I know alot of my schematics and design get dumped in the bin after cycling around my mess several times... Seem a shame, just because I didn't get to them then and there. All too often in our busy lives we sidetrack ideas for another date yet end up forgetting the ideas.... It is those ideas I am interested in harvesting and storing either for yourself to complete our for other to take up where you left off. Therefore something that may potentially get lost is re-birthed as someone elses completed project.

I'm part way through adding a "mute switch" to our clothes dryer, and have started the corresponding I'ble. That link is to my unpublished version. I don't know whether it will actually work for anyone other than the author. If it doesn't, then this comment is pretty useless, eh?

Well, slideshows are there for a reason. "To show what you have made" They were designed also to allow users to post items other than full I'ble's... We definatley need a place to store all our hard work. It is alos nice for the maker of the I'ble to be able to see what others have done with their guide.

well the whole idea of the 5 ibles in 5 days challenge, was to dust the cobwebs off some old ibles and get them published. Which is what this topic is about. It was a great way to get the ibles sorted, as you were accountable to everyone on this site, let alone your component,
