    Table Saw Blade Gauge

    I'm thinking that there could be people out there that have little or no knowledge of tablesaw usage and safe techniques, and watching this video could result in lost digits, or worse. Since we don't really want to contribute to this, I am just saying, that as an example to the unfortunate ones that are new to woodworking and it's inherent dangers, showing a safe technique would help. Also, maybe put a short warning about how a saw blade does not cut flesh, it tears it, and since most sharp woodworking tools have an edge capable of slicing wood apart, they will have little problem with human flesh. Just trying to save a little flesh and blood here, OK?

    Nice work, but this will not be possible in the future unless you use safer tablesaw techniques. Please put up another instructable pointing out the safe way to use the saw so that learners watching your video will not experience the unfortunate situation of suddenly missing digits necessary to carry on with a great hobby. Please!

  • Make Your Own Photovoltaic Off-Grid System

    Since you say that this inverter will output 230 volts, can it be used to power a household through the fuse panel in the house?

    Carbon tape heated steering wheel

    Firstly, there is hardly ever an easily accessible 12 volt power source under the steering wheel of any vehicle. Most use a clockspring mechanism for accessories that are steering wheel mounted. Fooling with this will most likely result in loss of the accessories. Secondly, to leave the wiring running down the column and not leaving enough slack to let the steering wheel turn fully from lock to lock could be fatal. Thirdly, fooling with anything to do with the airbag system without knowledge or training will most likely result in severe injury. Please add safety warnings about what you are instructing to prevent serious injury or worse!

    Solar Water Heater from scratch

    For freezing temps, put a similar copper tubing grid inside the tank. Plumb the two grids together and fill the system with RV antifreeze, used when storing your RV in winter. Now fill the storage tank with water and plumb this heated water into the house system. In central Canada, we continue to use the standard hot water heater in the house and feed it from the storage tank so that the main heater only has to run a short time, if at all. This way, with proper shutoff vales and drains, we can drain the solar heater system, leaving the antifreeze in the solar part with no damage when the outside temp gores well below freezing. Easy-peasy!!
