    A suggestion/wishlist would be a design for a reliable DIY plotter that would take very large drafting paper to plot out small scale items like PDF file designs (1/4" down to 1/32" scaled drawings) and be able to plot those out onto the large paper at FULL SCALE to be able to use those as patterns for all kinds of crafts.I like your idea as well! A tool to use for a DIY design to input into a digital format. I saw something like this on the Net, however, what was being used was a very expensive system. On your system, just getting the design into a digital format is a BIG step, after which other tools could be used to refine the drawing if necessary. GREAT JOB!!!!

    SO, you didn't say anything about how you start with this. Do you use the pedals to start? Do you keep your feet on them all the time? IF you don't use the pedals - why keep them?

    Would this be sensitive enough to detect an embedded (not visible to the eye) nail in something like a very old hardwood barn timber ?Thanks for the replies and the link to your Metal Detector design.

    Well, that's why I asked. I didn't know if it would pick up signals like the real pin pointers do.Thanks for the link to pin pointers though I'm going there noe an dcheck it out.

    Is it possible that this could be used as a PinPointer device for Metal Detecting?Just curious as it has many windings and Hall Sensors.IF NOT with this design, would a modified design do the job?

  • SO, if I built one of these would it pull all of the fine dust out of the air after a sanding job in my workshop? OR, at least pull it to one place so that when shut down the dust could then be quickly vacuumed from one spot? :-)

  • How about corn cobs if you can find a framer harvesting corn the old fashioned way.ALSO, drive around the country side and watch for old, old bales of har round or square and you should be able to buy those for little other than hauling them away. These also make gread compost!

  • If the stove isn't getting hot enough for what you think the pan contents should be doing - step back and look at how high the pan is above the flame! That could be part of your problem.

  • I liked your camp commode, however, when I cut the pieces to your dimensions, after measuring the bucket, I thought it would just drop together. I had to go back and buy a new length of PVC and recut the pieces to dimensions shown in my "new and improved" Camp Toilet. I made a stronger frame and added 2"X4" cut to over lap each other and trimmed on the 4" side to bring the bucket right up to the raised toilet seat. Higher 18" seat makes it easier for Seniors to stand up. Good job though and I think the collapsible feature is great for storage! Although I did mention to a friend to put the constructed PVC frame in her living room, add a smoked glass table top, and tell people she's into modern art! :-)New dimensions and other info is shown in the picture b…
