    Belt Sander Mount

    I like Phil B's sander design and the fence on your sander. Will be doing some thinking.

  • Crispy Cheesy Chicken Tacos

    They look great. Did you consider making these using an air fryer or in the oven, rather than deep frying?

  • ECG Display With Arduino

    I like the design and am giving it some thought. I just finished my second episode of atrial fibrillation--the sections of my heart don't work in the right synchronization. It would be interesting to see when another episode is coming. I believe your design is likely safe. I believe it enough I would not be reluctant to try it and will read through the design to see what components I don't already have. However, your thought about SAFETY--"It's running off 4 AA cells or a single Lithium cell for goodness sake - how dangerous can it be?" Back before dirt was invented, I had my first electronics class. The professor pointed out that a circuit using only a few flashlight cells could be fatal with only connecting wires added. For clarification, but not instruction, it would…

Back before dirt was invented, I had my first electronics class. The professor pointed out that a circuit using only a few flashlight cells could be fatal with only connecting wires added. For clarification, but not instruction, it wouldn't be quick and would be awfully unpleasant, but dead is dead and in the right circumstances could be the result.

  • A Chair for the Great Outdoors

    My father retired as an Emeritus Professor of Mathematics in 1989. I did similarly from Computer Science in 2010. We both did quite a few worthwhile things.But your Workmate sawbuck and the chair for the great outdoors are truly inspiring. You have my admiration for taking so little and making so much that's useful. Thank you. Ed

  • DIY Foldable Wooden Tray for Sofa

    Nice project and should be useful. I'm sorry the bill of materials wasn't included in the original article, and I can't imagine whose idea that was. PLEASE everybody, include everything you a reader would want to know in the original article. It ends up wasting time and causing people to not want to read more projects by this author--and it's too good a project for that to happen to nice people.

  • Parts Organizer Cabinet

    Love the cabinet and really impressed with the commentary that came with it. I'm not sure I'm up to building it, but it is an inspiration for me to do SOMETHING!

    Thank you. I particularly appreciate the suggestions for hanging the chains. They're often the most challenging parts.

  • How to Make a Wooden Engraving Pantograph

    Wow--this takes me back. I found the plan for this in a book or magazine 60+ years ago. It worked well enough I used it to enlarge some drawings to make some small wooden items. It used a pencil as a marker, but the geometry and plan were virtually the same. I probably used a scroll saw to cut it out, as I may have been too young to use any other power tools. It will be noted that the precision and appearance of your effort are much better than mine were.

  • DIY Timber Model Garden Windmill

    Still a septo-geranium but catching up faster than I expected to a number of years ago. I appreciate your care in creating the instructions and will be looking to see how it fits in my back yard. Thanks for your efforts.
