A very impressive project indeed! I'll surely have to give this a try someday. Perhaps with my kids when they're old enough.While reading through, I saw the ham-mer and immediately thought "no way! that guy?" and sure enough! It's so cool that a whole year later another one of your Instructables has caught my eye. Well done mate!
I can't see for certain from the pictures, but I'd bet that there's a way to non-permanently attach your dogs to the latch so that the dogs do not jump out, but you can still change them when necessary. This would make the dogs come out by a fixed amount (the length of the latch) but it could make the system more seamless and quick... what do you think?Also, what's your opinion on round vs. square dogs? I see you've opted for square in this case.
Neat tutorial! These concepts now make much more sense!
I'd start with the local armory. If you can't find one there, start checking local crypts, troll caves, and mantelpieces. I've known many 'a local blacksmith who had a few lying around.
Good to know! Overall, it's a cool project, I definitely don't want to come across as diminishing your work, just a few suggestions. Well done!
Very interesting...I'm not sure if it's just the camera, but the 'slice of ham' inlay looks like a solid paint, the photos don't show any of the grain. Additionally, the color seems off to me anyways, however I agree that raw maple wouldn't work either.I'd imagine a light cherry would have a better color, and if you inlay-inlayed some bleached maple, you'd get the color while maintaining the 'raw wood' feel.
Cool project! About how many yards of webbing did you use? I'd imagine it takes at least 20.
Very interesting project! Well done!It's cool to see some other creators using AliExpress, I feel like it's really overlooked for the kind of deals it has. Especially using the power banks. I've got a few projects in the works using the same parts!
Made using solid wood and brass hinges. Using a sound module with a switch mounted in the lid.
Kid: Trick or treat!Adult: WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY SWAMP??!!!
Forgive me if I misunderstand, but wouldn't you have to pay for service to the phone?
Awesome Project! I hope to make my own soon!My favorites are #1 and #5, the contrasting wood colors look great!
Just wondering what kind of stain you used? I really like the look you attained with it!While we're at it, about how many coats? and and how much does it use up?
This makes me imagine what if the entire dash display was removed and replaced with a complete window HUD... Now that would be cool.
I've had this question for a long time, and maybe someone here could help me. What sort of signals are Bluetooth and WIFI transmitted through? Is it IR light? Electromagnetic? Radio? Or some other signal? and how are these signals created/received?
Duct tape is extremely useful! One thing I did for a long time that was not listed here, is to create a duct tape wallet, I used one for several years when you need a new pouch, just tape one on! When it starts to fall apart, just tape it back together, or build a new one! Also, I have used the duct tape wart removal, I heard somewhere that it needs at least 40 days to work, so it was a little embarrassing to keep duct tape on my thumb for 45 days straight. A remedy I found was to put a band-aid over the duct tape, people would often ask why duct tape was on my thumb, but a bandage is not nearly as suspicious.
Just wondering, couldn't you run a 1" PVC pipe down the well, and do your ultrasound measurements through it? that may eliminate echoes and give a more precise measurement. I'm no expert, so please let me know if this won't work for any reason.
While I admit I haven't tried it, socks seems like a terrible idea for ice prevention on windshield-wipers. If anything the socks would just absorb any water present and create an ice shell around your wipers as soon as temperatures drop again. And honestly freezing wipers isn't a huge issue, unless you get a nasty storm of freezing rain, you can normally just pull the wipers away and break the ice in a minute or two.
That pumps water into itself!
What lathe do you use?
