    Depending upon the barrel diameter and length, you could possibly use a pyrex test tube instead of flat glass. I would cut off the end of the tube, to all heat to escape. Be sure to make the pen barrel so it doesn't shift around as you roll it around. I am sure he has a few bits of wood to use as soft wedges. There are many scientific shops out there, which sell glass tubing, if you aren't comfortable with cutting a test tube, plus both ends would be heat treated.

    Great post! Your video through the back of the cabinet helped me understand how the two lock system worked. The few hidden components that I have seen have their stops notched into the vertical sliders, like the wooden treasure box puzzles. These also ran on wood to wood runners, not metal guides. Their method would eliminate the trip levers, but in your case, the drawer boxes run on rails, so you'd need some other stops or tabs to make it work. Thanks for the 'ible!

  • Arduino Star-Finder for Telescopes

    I was considering a low tech approach for now - just look up the current info online, and punch in the numbers - that kind of "input." Later, create a REST API call to fetch the coordinates from somewhere else, confirm it's in my view of the sky at this time, and if so, take aim. If not, error message with "not in view at this time." I'd love to be able to just say "what's in my field of view right now, and where is it?" but Alexa and Google aren't nearly that sophisticated yet.

    While it sounds like a good idea, there are reasons why we don't put them "inside" of the containers.1) The magnets will be weaker by sheer virtue of distance, and they'd start slipping once again.2) The flavor of JB Weld doesn't go with anything that I cook, no matter how bad my cooking could be.3) If the magnet EVER gives way it would not enhance the flavor of my food, with or without any JB Weld flavor enhancers.

    Nice bike! Your other 'third' option is a "friction drive" where the motor spindle's "wheel" rubs against the rim or tire itself, like the old bike generator lamps used to do. That'd be a single speed solution, and it's the least effective of the lot, but less dangerous than the chainsaw solutions.

    Building a Boot Dryer

    The short answer on that one is to add flaps to close off holes as needed. Heating the air would be nice, but it's not necessary in most places, as the air's humidity is actually much lower in the winter. Of course, the idea of putting on "warm and dry boots" before going out into the snow certainly has its merits. However, would I install a heating element inside a small wooden box? Probably not.I would suggest installing a timer in this configuration though - no sense in running this for more than a few hours.I grew up in upstate New York, where the average annual snowfall is 11 feet. Imagine six feet of snow landing in your driveway in 48 hours - it's happened. It's worse the closer you are to the Great Lakes....https://www.pinterest.com/pin/246853623303293642/

    Easy Rubber Machining With a Needle

    Wow! Great instructable. Given your description, I think the 0.5mm was closer to "routing" not "cutting." The needle is so fine it would be flexing and vibrating, and creating a flap of material to ride under as it ran along. Dovetail cut perhaps? Would have to cross section it and put under a microscope to verify.

    Thanks for the imagery!I think that I am not understanding "how" the needles are used. Are they run in the channels as routing bits (spin only, multiple passes), or as drill bits (piercing up/down plus spin) or as a knife (no spin, slicing with multiple passes) to make the grooves? I see plenty of cupping in the first image, so I assume drilling or routing modes.If "drilling" down, perhaps it is compressing the materials, and squishing material aside as it goes in, leaving material to rebound back into the gap afterwards, reducing the gap size?In any case, great work!

    3D Printed Kitten Wheelchair

    I've been thinking about your wheelchair a lot - and I am unsure on the posture, given the plan to use prosthetics later. Any idea how many hours a day the kitten is in the chair? She'll need to use those legs as stumps as much as possible, to teach these muscles how to move well, given her young age.

    While that may add stability, the longer you make it, the more force downward her own body will create on that endpoint. Cat's backs are not at all meant for carrying loads in a downward direction, only the hips and shoulders have that capability.

    Stackable Shop Storage Boxes

    Worth mentioning here - The "big box stores" do not always guarantee their cuts to be "accurate/precise." Ask the saw operator about this before you have the materials cut.

    Yes, routers are very useful. If you already have a table saw, many of them have a hole in the tabletop to mount a router (upside down) which would be ideal for this task.

    My grandfather made similar boxes! The hand holds were simple oval cut outs on the front and back. (1" bit, drill two holes at each end, then coping saw or jigsaw the straight lines between.) You do have to router both sides of the holes to smooth down the edges. He also used old coffee can lids, cut in half, as flaps, stapled inside, to cover the "inside" of the hand holds. This would stop the items from falling out through the hand holds, as well as protect your fingers a bit. (stapled only at the bottom edge, with curved edge pointing up.)

You can tighten security by only allowing specific IPs to "come in", so make sure to learn how to do that once you have a working connection.3) From your rPi, Go to http://whatismyip.com/ to see what IP address from the "outside" you'd need to use on the "outside computer." When you are "inside" you would use the IP from step 1.rcochran5, In regards to the IP address details in the configuration of VNC, this interface is looking for IP:Display# , not IP:port number. VNC is a tool to allow multiple people to have separate virtual "displays" to interact with the VNC server.
