Is there a possibility that Instructables can make a catagory for projects that need little to no special supplies like CNC machines? Answered

I am usually, and easily bored and look for something little to make but all the 'ibles take CNC machines or drill presses which I don't have at my expense. It takes a lot of browsing to find an 'ible that meets these parameters. Could the instructables  team make a section specifically meeting these needs?

As I type, only 4 of the last sixty projects posted needed high-budget specialist equipment, and one of them included files you can send to a 3d printing service instead of needing a printer yourself.

If you are talking about the projects in the newsletter, this is an issue raised recently in another thread. The content of the newsletter is strongly influenced by views - if more visitors to the site looked at more non-high-budget-equipment projects, then more of them would appear in the newsletter.

I'm just asking that we make a medium budget, no special tool section that contains projects that combat boredom.

STAFF: I recommend moving this topic to the feedback section (as your suggestion would fall under that category).

hungyhipo 2,

I agree with you (to a point), about perhaps classifying projects that don't require special tools and equipment. There is a publishing point where members can give a cost and difficulty rating, but there doesn't seem to be a way to utilize that information.

The majority of my ibles are geared towards using limited tools, equipment and cost, but there is no way for me to really "advertise" that point.

Good suggestion (for the feedback section). ;-)
