  • It's called a "resist" process. The toner resists the acid etch.

  • I did mine originally on wood, but didn't like the way it came out, so I tried it on a cinder block. Mine had a white appearance instead of clear.

  • How about using some tape to tape the mirror to the outside of the box, and then use your para-cord over the mirror. If size and weight aren't a consideration, I would go ahead and do that!Just make sure that you don't use tape over a silvered mirror because it might pull the silver off. I think more mirrors are polished aluminum.

  • AF6YS commented on JP'sW's instructable Transfer Photograph onto Wood

    I can answer that, laser printers and photocopiers use a non water soluble toner, if you have access to a color laser printer you could use that.Inkjet uses ink that is water soluble.Ooops just saw that someone already answered that. My problem was the paper taking some of the toner with it.

    Excellent -able! I tried it earlier this year and had problems removing the paper. I was removing part of the image too. Did you use any special paper? I also tried it on a cinder block as in the picture.I also noticed that your image was not too contrasty. It does help. When I tried it on wood, the grain of the wood wasn't seen because it was all white, maybe I used too much Mod Podge.I also have to comment on your great shop, clean and well organized! I also like your using safety glasses and particle mask! Safety safety safety!

    Good tip about using a router, I would use something smaller like a Dremel.

  • Good job! I just have two comments, there's one typo,"wights". and instead of the foil for the signaling, why not just use a signal mirror with a hole for aiming" Unless there was a reason to go on the cheap. But otherwise a fine job.

    Great idea for the tape, I've wrapped a bit (haven't measured) of duct tape around a pen and pencil! Also a pad that can be written on if wet either in pen or pencil! While it won't fit in an Altoid's tin, a good thing to have if leaving directions for help to find you in inclement weather.

    People can die from exposure in the desert doncha know? I have a fanny pack to carry stuff I can't fit in an Altoids tin, such as 2 space blankets, (1 is good for one person! Also have a rain Poncho and a windbreaker. Other things such as a rechargeable battery for electronics, solar powered battery backup (good because it's renewable- but slow to recharge.) I also carry my (hand-held) ham radio with an extra battery.

    There you go, see what you can do! Those mirrors with the hole for signaling are usually about 1/16" to 1/8" the thicker the better for magnifying the sun's rays, but take up space. You would have to debate yourself whether the foil would serve better than the mirror, more uses for the foil, but utmost importance on signalling for the mirror. I would find a way to have both if the use of the foil was equal to surviving better than without it!

  • Great ideas I've never heard of, but the dog one, well beware! Sugar-Free on dogs isn't a good idea as they lick their coats. Even if it dries. Check the label to make there isn't any Sorbitol, Maltitol any of the (itol family of sweeteners) are poisonous to dogs and cats.http://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/22274/20160516/pet-care-common-artificial-sweetener-fatal-dogs.htm

  • Excellent job! Also, you have a beautiful, neat and well organized work area too!I was wondering if you considered a storage battery for nite time viewing?

    Also, don't you have to seal the the panels against the weather?

  • That would be an awesome use of brain power. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has done research on thought control between military hardware (fighter jets) and pilots may actually include surgical intervention. Implants of sensors to control flight and or weapons.I'm reminded of the Clint Eastwood movie FireFox, has thought control weapons systems, but he has to THINK in Russian! Excellent movie, regardless of of the reality of the state of the art of "thought control weapons systems!"https://youtu.be/sYh9_QmNwRA

  • Yuck! For 1 can, no problem, for ten big problem!!!

    That is ok, I won't hold it against you! lol! I'd like to try your caramel and do a tasty comparison.. Haha!

    Very nice, and has gotten my sweet tooth excited!I have an altogether different and a heck of a lot easier method.The ingredients are: 1 can of Carnations (or store brand) Condensed milk (also known as Dulce de Leche in Mexican neighborhoods)A slow cooker or crock pot. A pair of tongs to lift the can out after cooking.Water filled to the almost top of the can of condensed milk (or Dulce de Leche) inside the crock pot. It won't rise, but the water level will drop due to evaporation, you could add more water. Put the lid on and put the cooker on "slow" or "low" heat. The Caramel cooks inside the can and can take up to 4 hours, but you may want to keep a watchful eye every hour or so. Don't worry about the label.You will want to wear some oven mitts or silicone gloves to …

Don't worry about the label.You will want to wear some oven mitts or silicone gloves to handle the can. Or you can wait till the caramel has cooled to handle.It also works with sugar free condensed milk!Enjoy!

  • AF6YS commented on halledean's instructable Leather Underbust Harness

    Excellent job! Great craftsmanship. Excellent presentation.I have one constructive criticism, and it isn't really a fault. Consider branching out and trying a little embellishment. Maybe some scrollwork, or whatever you like. Just a suggestion, what you have is perfect the way it is.
