Introduction: Build a CNC Machine (A DIY Project Documented Via Video) by Jason Welsh

My project is to create a CNC machine from stuff found at your local hardware store. I am a teacher / artist / programmer / electronic junky that loves to work with real world materials to invent.  So in my DIY building adventures I decided to document creating a CNC machine via video. So I will be letting the video tell most of the story here.

    Question 1 year ago on Introduction

    Hi Jason, I saw your most interesting video "Electroforming Brightener Glycol" in which you posed the question "does anyone know the formula for the commercial "MIDAS" product? I wonder, did you ever receive any replies? If so, I would be interested to hear of it - I have a friend making miniature engines. If not, do you know anyone with access to a HPLC (eg a university chem lab assistant, etc.)? They might be able to run a sample through to identify the constituents. Maybe there's a published patent for it? Cheers, Andre ROUSSEAU.
