Making a Powerful Generator From a Blender Motor DIY
Instead of digging out the tap & die set to clean up the threads, screw a nut on prior to cutting the threaded rod. When you unscrew the nut, after cutting, it will automatically realign and clean up the threads.

Hobbyist metalworker/blacksmith here. Tinsnips come in right-side "junk", left-side "junk", or center-cut. None of which do what would be easiest for a right-hander, which is to control were the "good" cut piece ends up, especially with the tips. It is either bent up or down, which means that you'd need to flatten the piece afterward, and minute cuts are impossible. This design SEEMS like it would solve that aspect. However, real-world tests would be needed.

Burn Makeup With Liquid Latex
Ok, question... I picked up an original Atari console with joysticks, games, and the "box" to connect the console to a tv...practically for free. I have no idea if it even works and would love to find out without dropping a bunch of cash to find out. Apparently the "box", and Atari, are both older models (?) as the side to connect to the TV has the two leads to connect to the screw posts for bunny ears. I have yet to find a tv, even at Goodwill/thrift shops, that old. Any ideas that are relatively inexpensive? I'm fairly good at electronics, ie soldering, splicing, rewiring, so anything in that realm would be doable too. Thanks for any help.
