This is incredible. Wish my son was old enough to join in on making it, but regardless I'm sure hell love playing with it.
Yes, check out this one:https://www.instructables.com/Automatic-SitStan...I've actually built a variation of it for a friend over 6 months ago (posted an image on that instructable), and it came out great.The only part cost was the linear motor (ordered a 40cm stroke 90KG capacity from china). The top and back brace was reclaimed particle board I found, the housing (rails) for the raising legs were made of an old particle board table top I had laying around and the legs were made out of leftover 1X6 pine from building a fence
To solve the instability issue, I set pre-defined positions in which I can fix the table-top supporting legs to the base. This solves it completely.
I've been trying to make a table-top sit/stand adapter for a regular desk to give to a friend. My first and second attempts were a very poor. It's been a year of trying to figure out a way to do it right. Your design is so simple, I just gave up on a table-top adapter and decided to build a full table following your design.I did change it a bit - except for the motor everything is reclaimed (mostly particle board). Instead of steel rails I made my own solution using pine 1X6. Also, instead of beautiful joinery, I just stuck to screw and glue. It's ugly, but it took just over a day to make.Thank you for the inspiration and for helping me finally complete this long standing project.
I'd really love to make it. It's impressive and beautiful. Shame I don't have a jointer/power planer.Personally, I'd place it with the hold facing up, and attach a glass top to it. I think it'll look great.
Recently, I found a 2HP 3phase motor with broken field winding. I wanted to find out how to rewire it for single phase. This will definitely come in handy. Thanks!

Now that's actually a good idea!
Actually, using pencils in 0G, is horrible. Anything the crumbles is considered a hazard in 0G (both to humans and instruments). That's why they don't use Pencils on the ISS...nor eat bread.
Got my vote.I'll try and make it next time I'm looking for a pet project
Cutting the zero clearance slot in a Plexiglas with a table saw would likely shatter the Plexiglass. Maybe if you use a Melamine blade. I don't think general purpose blades will be delicate enough.
I'd think it would be closer to plywood.
I'm not sure which awl you're referring to, but when I tried scoring my stainless steel foils with a cheap stitching awl I use to fix my boots it didn't do a very good job.

They don't that well as wood-chisels because the metal is too soft and gets too dull very fast.However, for quick work on soft-stone they're very nice. I also made a scoring knife out of one which I really liked (it can even score steel foils if sharpened).

Thanks.Yes, they'll be extremely cheap to get in garage sales or thrift stores, just be mindful that the older the utensil, it's less likely to be made of stainless steel, so you should make sure to test it with a magnet.
