A buddy of mine e-mailed me an article about a cell phone unveiled in Japan that is a plush Teddy Bear. After reading it I said "Surely someone could make that for less than $500!!!" When I mentioned this to my friend he said he could see someone on Instructables combinig it with taxidermy to make a rat phone. The URL is :http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,415965,00.htmlHopefully this will provide someone with inspiration.

Hello people of Instructables.com. http://gizmodo.com/171236/teddy-bear-gun This particular toy stuck me as an awesome toy to have around. However, there doesn't seem to be any place on the world wide web that sells this magnificent toy. Perhaps someone with some skill in projectile launching toys can show me how to make one of my own using a Life Water bottle?

Ok.... I have literally exhausted every avenue I can. All I can find are already done bottle cap beads and their finished jewelry. NO WHERE have I found the instructions on how to actually make the beads themselves. I need help. This is driving me INSANE! Basically you take to bottle caps(and MAYBE you round em out with a ball peen hammer) Then you weld? glue? them together and drill holes thru them. I have hundreds and hundreds of bottle caps for this project. All I need are the instructions to do this project. I am begging anyone out there who knows of, or has made these please, please... Write me here, communicate with me telepathically.... Something.. Anything! I am begging my fellow Instructians for assistance! Thank you in advance!! Johana P.S. I am posting a picture of what the finished things look like. Some have the wavy edges and some don't I don't care if they have one of the other. I just need to make these guys!!

So basically an artist named YaYa Chow (cool name) made a chandelier by stringing gummi bears together....The resulting effect is actually very good, The various shades give out a nice colour.But i'm wondering : How many did she eat in the process ?LINK

Ok, this is a forum topic for Chicago Bears fans (and really, all sports fans). Who thinks that the Chicago Bears are the most depressing team to be a fan of? I just got done watching the Bears/Falcons game. That was depressing. They had their chance to come back... and they blew it! Oh well, there's always next week.

I'm not really sure on the proper way to mount a bearing. I had a few ideas on how to do so, but I want to know what your methods are, or which of mine are the best. Images are attached. In most of these methods, there's a little collar on the bearing. I didn't discover till recently that most bearings don't have those.

Hello Community! I'm in need of a strong/heavy-duty Lazy Susan-type bearing. Looking for about 8" - 10", and a bearing capable of handling 100 - 150 lbs. Smooth movement is a requirement. If you have one in your junk pile that's not being used, let me know! Thanks! huck

Woohoo! Who doesn't want half a pound of giant gummy bear on a stick goodness?? They're "Hand made (with gloves on) in the US". For a mere $ 9.95, you can have the equivalent of 88 gummy bears - on a stick.Comes in green, red and blue.The history of the giant gummies is explained in teh awesome video, showing these little guys for what they really are: manna from gummy bear heaven! They're mounted on a "portability beam", otherwise known as a stick. Getting hungry? Go get one!Did I mention it's a gummy bear on a stick? No, this is not an ad. I just love the idea of a giant gummy bear on a stick...

For some while I've had a pile of ball bearings sitting here on my lounge room table, and without knowing what on earth to do with them, I now ask you. I have found uses such as adding to my "mousetrap racer," a small car, run by a mouse trap, that can go up to 15 metres. With ball bearings it goes twice as far as it used to, so I have become curious... what to do now though? All ideas would help, and an instructable would be even better. Cheers

I want to swing a locket on a chain like a pendulum and I want to minmise the friction experienced where the chain attaches to the supporting post. What sort of bearing or similar device should I use for this? Ideally it should be available in a bronze/dirty brass colour but I guess I can deal with it if it isn't.

I want to make a mini Strandbeest out of BBQ skewers, but I don't know what I could use for all of the little bearing points. Anyone have any suggestions? Something small simple and cheap. Any ideas appreciated!

Many people still buy and use a NordicTrack Ski Machine, although these machines are not as popular as they once were. I have talked to people who say they just plain wore out a ski machine. The part that wears is the one-way clutch inside the drive rollers. NordicTrack makes the one-way clutch sound very mysterious. In reality it is a one-way needle bearing and is available from Amazon or locally from a good bearing shop. The internal diameter of the one-way needle bearing used in my machine (Challenger, similar to a 303) is 5/8 inch. The outer diameter is 7/8 inch. The width of the one-way needle bearing from end to end is 5/8 inch. I originally had hopes of being able to install new one-way needle bearings, myself; but, they together with the bronze sleeve bearings on either side of the one-way needle bearing inside each drive roller are pressed into place. Pressing bearings is not a job for the average home tinkerer but requires a bearing press capable of exerting tons of pressure in a very precise manner. You can often have a local machine shop press the bearings in your machine's drive rollers. Or, you can send them away to Nordic Track Guy and have them rebuilt for about $33 with a one week turnaround. The core of the rollers really does not wear out, but new rollers are available on the Internet from $65 to $95, depending on the vendor. From what I can find, some models used an alternate size. Check to be certain you order the correct rollers, if you choose to replace. One of my drive rollers suddenly began to hiccup. It seemed that the clutch did not always release immediately when I pulled my foot forward. Then I noticed a little mush in the response when I began to bring my foot back on the push stroke. Before you rebuild or replace your rollers, try this: Remove one side of your Ski Machine. See the second photo and check the exploded diagram in your manual. Four nuts and two screws, all plainly visible, need to be removed. Slide the washers and the roller off of the top side. The shaft and flywheel can be wiggled out of the other side without removing anything from that side. Remove the washers and the roller from that side, too. Flush the one-way needle bearing by squirting some penetrating oil, like Liquid Wrench, into the bearing. Work it both ways with your smallest finger. Push a facial tissue into the shaft hole in the roller and sop away the penetrating oil and any metallic dust it lifts. Do this several times. Let the rollers air dry. A little lubrication is good. People who comment on lubrication for one-way needle bearings use Tri-Flo (I am not familiar with it.) or they use a little ATF transmission fluid. You want enough to lubricate, but not so much that the bearings slip. (But, see the comments below where the oil impregnated bronze sleeve bearings are supposed to supply enough lubrication for the needle bearings.) Put the rollers back in place on the shaft. Check to be certain they grab on the rearward stroke and release on the forward stroke. Reassemble the machine. Do not forget the washers between the roller and the side board. My machine works again as it should. The day will likely come when this simple fix does not help, and I will need to rebuild or replace the rollers then. But, for now, my rollers have a new lease on life. What follows is for your information. The first photo is of a portion of the back cover of the manual that came with my machine. It shows a cutaway image of the drive roller. The black printing is mine. Notice the three cylinders inside the drive roller. The outer two are bronze sleeve bearings. The center one looks like a roller bearing, but is a one-way needle bearing. A one-way needle bearing is essentially a roller bearing, but the rollers are able to move forward and backward a little in their cage. There is a wedge shape for the axle of each roller that causes the rollers to bind between the bearing cage and the shaft when the rotation is in one direction, but they are free in the other direction. Here is a description of how they work with graphics. This link is for an Instructable about a number of modifications I made to our NordicTrack ski machine, including how it can be stored vertically in a closet. If you do not have a digital monitor for your skier, or need to replace one, here is an Instructable on how to make your own from a digital bicycle speedometer. Check NordicParts for any parts you need, also Nordic Fitness Ski Machines. Danny at Nordic Fitness Ski Machines has some very nice new rollers for sale.

I found some more metal and decided to make a third Baby Bear knife. Thanks to Alan Folts for the original design. He sells these now and I did not like the price, so I decided to make my own. Here is a picture of the semi-finished knife. It has curly(flame) maple handles that I found in the wood pile. I would like to make a Kydex sheath for it, but have not found a source that will let me buy a few or one sheet at a good price. Still looking. Anyone know of a good source please let me know. I only need a few sheets to start with. Carbon graphite looks cool.

Hi everyone! I work in industrial bearing distribution, and every now and then something falls into my lap that I get to play around with. Today we got a bunch of bearings back that had been made slightly different than the customer had requested. So, I've got a big box of these things. There's nothing wrong with them, it's just that the little tapped holes are slightly misaligned and can't be used in the original application. They are designed to press lightly onto a 5/16" shaft. The tapped holes are 6-32 thread. Also, I can easily get cheap 5/16 shafting and I've got a crate full of 5/16 single split and double split shaft collars. My question is, what would you do if had all of these little guys? I couldn't bear to send them all to the steel recycling place, as they're perfectly good bearings and pretty neat to boot, but I'm not sure what to do with them. I thought I'd throw it open to the group--any ideas?

I have a pair of twenty inch wheels from a jogging stroller with "sealed" bearings that I would like to remove the axles from. I've loosened or removed all of the nuts including the locking nuts from both sides but the axles are still firmly seated/connected to something inside. They came from the frame/carcass of a stroller similar to this, but they are not the quick release.

Bubblegum SequencerThe Bubblegum Sequencer is a physical step sequencer that lets you create drumloops by arranging colored balls on a tangible surface. It generates MIDI events and can be used as an input device to control audio hardware and software. Finally, people can't claim anymore that electronic music isn't handmade.Also, check out the similar BeatBearing. The BeatBearing project is a simple Tangible User Interface that uses ball bearings to program a sequencer.

Still working on my solar device (in Copenhagen now), and it's coming along fairly nicely. Should hopefully have a full instructable in a couple of weeks. However, I'm having problems at the moment trying to keep the thing water tight, where the axle leaves the system, taking out the rotational motion. I'm using the bearing housing from an old bike wheel (photos to come) and I've got it sealed well where it's attached to wall of the container, but the ethanol is flowing pretty freely through the bearings themselves. I need it not to. I could use something like an O ring to seal the axle, but friction is a big issue. I wanted to pack the whole axle and bearing housing with grease, but grease dissolves in ethanol. Solutions? Is there anything grease like which isn't soluble in alcohol? Salt, maybe? Cheers all. (Nearly there...)

There are weird laws, and then there are Norwegian laws!The government of Norway's Svalbard Islands have made it illegal to die there. If you are close to death - through age or illness - they ship you off to the mainland.If you die quickly, through accident or sudden illness, they refuse to bury you.The town's small graveyard stopped accepting newcomers 70 years ago, after it was discovered that the bodies were failing to decompose.But although there is no old people's home, there is a kindergarten.In winter - when the darkness lasts for months on end - the children make images of the sun with yellow paint and tissue paper and stick them to the windows. Trips outside the kindergarten's walls carry a more immediate danger for the children and, for this reason, the teacher carries a gun.Longyearbyen is in the land of the polar bear, an animal which causes real dread among its residents.Every student at the university spends their first day learning how to shoot bears. Aim toward the chest, runs the advice, rather than the head which is easy to miss.If you are unarmed when you encounter a bear, toss your mittens on the snow in the hope of distracting it.Full BBC StorySvalbard Tourist Information.EDITI just found out - this is where my Dad is going on holiday in a few days, specifically to go see the polar bears.Check out the webcams on the Svalbard Tourist Information site - Ee, it's grim up North!

Can I just say the consitution is dead in America? That it doesnt count for much anymore? Freedom to assemble-I dont think what the founders meant was freedom to apply for a permit to assemble. Right to bear arms-again i dont think that was fill out the application and never actually bear the arms, leave them locked in a cabinet in your house Pursuit of happiness-Is that not what the law does, prevents people from doing what makes them happy. Are people going around saying 'What law could I break to make myself less happy'? Freedom of speech-I dont know about this one. I guess that's upheld pretty well.

The LAPD, The FBI, and the CIA are all trying to prove that they are the best at apprehending criminals. The President decides to give them a test. He releases a rabbit into a forest and each of them has to catch it. The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigations they conclude that rabbits do not exist. The FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no apologies. The rabbit had it coming. The LAPD goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten bear. The bear is yelling: "Okay! Okay! I'm a rabbit! I'm a rabbit!"
