Why the router instead of a drill press with depth stop and a jig for placement?

I've seen e-ink 'badges' and business cards. Not a cheap option, but very cool.

Done. Experts say that you should use a bed of sand for your entire work area.
Yep, the tabs are the same material.
I plan to give details on my furnace in my next Instructable. It requires welding, so it isn't exactly a beginner project. I don't think I will write one on creating the burner for the furnace because there are a lot of such projects out there. And I also have a mini forge I might write up.
Sure, there are tons of options if you have a welder. You are not likely to get to temperatures for steel or iron with this type of furnace, so most of those options will be robust.I am working on an Instructable for how I made my propane bottle furnace. That one could probably almost get to temps for iron, so I am sticking to graphite crucibles in that one.
I realized last night that I would get this question! I have put in an Amazon link to the one that I currently use for breaking down cans, but when I first started I was using something I found around the house. It was in fact an old cast-iron shaving cup. You can use tin cans once or twice before they break apart (DANGER). A very common solution is a 4 inc steel pipe cut to length with a pipe nipple on one end. There are lots of options to get you started, but you will definitely end up with a crucible sooner or later. I bought a smaller crucible for when I actually do casts before I bought this larger one for breaking down cans since I could get by with what I had.
Indeed, this is quite true. You are burning (very small) amounts of plastics and should protect yourself accordingly. And obviously this is not something you should NEVER ever attempt to do inside!

In all seriousness, you should work this into a self-published book and post it on amazon for sale. I think that you would get a few bucks from it every now and again. Be careful, doing something like this is often what sends people off into unexpected careers and lives!

Fantastic! I play a lot of games too. For the most part, my crowd drinks beer, and so my first thoughts were how to make one that could hold beer bottles, cans, or wine. I think if the top piece went all the way and had a hole the right size for a bottle or can, it would also fit a wine glass. The bottom piece would have the slot, but not a big whole. This would allow the glass stem to fit, but would provide a base for resting the bottom of the bottles and cans. I might try it.Also, I think that having some kind of rubber or otherwise high-friction surface on the inside of the cantilevers would be nice to help reduce the chance of them sliding out.
It looks like the motor driver board has a 5 V output that could be used to power the arduino instead of having a second power source. Did you investigate that? Does it not work for some reason?
I like the idea, the mount and case are cool. But the focal length is so short and so much light is required that it is difficult to use. But it does work!! Cool.
So this senses that it is out of level and compensates by moving the z stepper. Is there such a thing as something that controls motors or something to actually physically level the bed?
White acrylic is relatively inexpensive for this purpose as well, but that starts taking the project away from the true simplicity that makes the current approach awesome.
How about adding a photo module to the Pi and snapping a photo of speeding cars? I have a relatively small street, but with lots of teenagers and soccer moms (dropping kids off at art class and speeding to Starbucks). I know enough of the people that I could send them photos with their speeds... :)
I learned a lot and enjoyed doing it. It looks decent... We'll, the front does ;)
My daughter and I got back to sewing again.
Very nice! Very even stitches!
My daughter and I are working on this class together. The first project went well!
My daughter and I did these together. We are working through the hand sewing class. I was lazy and used a silhouette cameo to cut the patterns. Thanks for the easily cut PDF! Back stitches tonight!
Welp, I did it. It was very difficult for me. I learned a lot. It looks thrashed and is smaller than it should be. But it is.
I have been doing this as a sample, since I never went out and got a yarn I'd be happy with for a scarf. I think a bigger yarn would have made easier learning!
