I just recently joined Instructables, and I'm looking for cheap (not necessarily simple) projects that involve mechanics or making anything out of easily found materials. Something like LostRite's hidden blade or this Mechanical Hand. I'm in high school and don't yet have a job, so many of the projects i find are out of my budget. Thanks for any of your suggestions!

On one of my recent bike rides I came across an old (I assume from size) network router. Now being a collector of anything electronic I stored it in my back pack for future use...However as I began to think, I realized I had no idea what to do with the thing. Here is the most basic infromation on the router: - Made by SMC - Called: BARRICADE SMC7004VWBR - Wireless network router, with a standard four ports on the back - Made in Taiwan (just thought that might be important) So does anyone have any idea on what I can do with this router? I already have a wireless router at home so that use it already filled. And yes, it is fully functional.

A friend of mine is in the metals class at my school and he asked me for some ideas (since they can make whatever the want on this last project) on what his final project should be. He's thinking something like a trebuchet or something else that launches projectiles and causes pain (or just fun). It would be awesome if some of you had any ideas or instructables for his project. If you do, please tell me!

It sure would be nice to have a summary form for each project on the first page detailing the category, a description of the project, a difficulty level rating, estimated cost, estimated time, etc. There's tons of cool projects on here but if they're too difficult or too complicated I don't want to spend the time to discover that on my own. Would be nice to know right from the get go. Also, it would be useful for searching to find easier and/or less expensive projects if desired. Additionally, users who complete the project could also put feedback in some type of survey to capture costs, time spent, difficulty, etc. Doing this would add a great deal of consistency to the instructable projects and I think would add a lot of value to this site! Peace, ~Will

Whenever I have Microsoft Project open to read mpp document, it brings the whole system operation to a crawl. Forget about using a browser whenever that program is open; it slows everything down. Any suggestions as to what causes this?

Has anyone ever gotten outside funding for a project you were building? I have an idea for a device to make our local greenway trail safer but my investment in it would be at least a couple hundred dollars. I'm looking for ideas to gather outside funding for the project because it will benefit everyone who uses those trails. Because i am an individual and not an organization, my chances of getting grant money (even a mere $200) are slim.

What is one to do if they start a collaboration and someone else steals it out from under them and publishes it as their own Instructable? The Colaboration system is too flawed and I will never consider working on projects publicly again. They should be hidden from view of all but members of the collaboration itself. I had a project titled USB UPS and opened it for collaboration. A user (neelandan) saw it, copied the idea, threw together amateurish circuits and published the parts to it as his own. I had planned on publishing a very professional step-by-step for a usable project. Now the idea is moot since it's already been published.

Hi, I just want to inform you about a new project, which bring a tiny microcontroller board for your home automatication, to you. It is called "USBeDuino". What is USBeDuino? basically it is a microcontroller board with 3 shields, which, when combined make a very great platform for home automatication. Features: Processor: Attiny85 2 x 3A PWM Output sink channel 3 x Analog input channel 1 onboard poti 2 onboard Buttons Input Voltage 5-24V Small size The idea behind the board: Sometimes you need only projects with very less pins, such as light controlling or pump controll (in the garden). Then you dont want to use a full arduino, with a power or a relay shield... then you can use the USbeDuino! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/usbeduino-project-all-or-nothing#home Please tell me, what do you think about this project? Does it have potential?

I notice that you are presenting more projects in French and Spanish. I think this is a very good objective. But, I am a uni-lingual person (English). I have tried to get Google to translate these projects, which can be a hassle, but all the images and their references are lost. Is there a simple way to get the PDF translated (or have access to an English version) I'm not suggesting that the original version be dropped, as translations can have errors! but can an English version be available or a procedure that I could do to get it translated with the image and graphic content intact?

Hi! Im gonna try out this project, Telescope , as I know nothing about optic or lens function maybe someone could just let me know if I should go for a Tele-Auto 6.3/400 mm or a Sigma 70-300 mm F4-5,6 DL Macro Super. I asked the creator but as time runs out for me I hope this gives a faster response =) Thanks

Does anyone have a Drawer Project? I have a space under the kitchen sink. The dimension is 15cm x 51cm x 52 cm. This space should be used for a dishwasher. I have seen some drawer projects using wood glue, but I would like to use screws instead of glue. This drawer will be used for cutlery, so it is good to have some divisions for fork, spoon, big knifes etc. As the whole kithcne furniture is white, the drawer shall be white for sure. I would like some tips such as track instalation, handle installation, bottom installation, finishing etc I intend to use my new Dremel to make it. Thank you!

Alright, well the mountain pine beetle is really eating up a ton of forests, and it's releasing a LOT of Co2 into the air. So I decided, since new trees would just get destroyed by the pine beetle again, why not find a crop (Preferably edible, inedible is just as good) that absorbs the most Co2 in the world (Next to trees). Basically, I'm looking to offset the Co2 that's being released in the forest by growing another crop. Once all the forests are destroyed, the pinebeetle population will die down, and we can replant the forests. Any suggestions?

I've seen many high altitude balloon projects and many rocketry projects on the web. These seem to be pretty established hobbies. The I got to wondering if anyone out there had ever heard of any amateur rockoon projects? If you haven't heard of a rockoon, it is a combination of the word "rocket" and "balloon". The concept is that a balloon is used to tow a rocket to a high altitude and then lauched. When I've searched around, most of the references I find are to the use of rockoons by Van Allen (of radiation belt fame)in the course of his research back in the 1950's. The only thing close to anything like an amateur attempt that I found on the web was by a group called JP Aerospace back in the 90's. I'm not necessarily contemplating any such project myself, I just find it a fascinating possiblity. And like the many amateur high altitude balloon lauches and high power rocketry, it is amazing what people put together. I wonder if it would be feasible for a high altitude balloon plus high powered model rocket to ever technically reach the internationally recognized altitude of ~100km considered "outer space". I know that both high altitude balloons and high powered rocketry have their own FAA (or equivalent agency) approval hoops to jump through. Perhaps they just wouldn't allow it, or it would be so much red tape that no one attempts it. Even a low altitude rockoon, of a small ~3ft diameter weather balloon towing a standard model rocket would be an interesting project, for the technical challenge of pulling it off successfully. Anyway, if anyone has ever heard of amateur rockoon attempts or your own musings on the topic, I'd be interested in hearing about it!

Well, I am bored, so I thought I would give an outline of my planned projects I have planned so far. They are in the order I plan upon doing them, and I am going to attempt to give a rough estimate of how long it will take me. First up there is a dragon. It leans towards the European side, if a little flatter than what is considered "normal". I have most of him complete, and he should be completed by next Monday. (He is completed and you can find him here I can't say anything about this project at the moment, as it is a gift for another instructables member. The project itself will take two or three weeks and be posted at the beginning of June. (This project is done, but can not be posted yet) Next I have a triforce from the Legend of Zelda franchise planned. It will be three dimensial, and I hope to make it able to stand up on its own. It will take a week, maybe two. (Completed and can be found here) Most likely to be the last project started in May, I want to make a jumping mouse from the movie Coraline. The key word there is want. I may not be able to follow through on it. It all depends if I can find a way to do all of the small pieces well, and if I can find a yarn color that I like. These are all projects that I want to do, but do not have a date or an order to do them in. The last project could be placed down here, but I know I will spend at least a day figuring out if I can do it or not at the end of May. Finishing up a simple, but tedious project I have started a good while ago. I may just take it with me when I go places and work it when I am going places. I don't know. It needs to get done though. The project, by the way, is crocheting with thread around a headphone cord. Very tedious. In case you missed it, I have a thing for dragons, and I also want an oriental dragon. So that will happen at some point. For yet another dragon, I have a little one that I cartoon sometimes that I would like to make a version of. I m not sure if I really want to make, but at the same time I do. I also want another hat. I have several hats already, but there is a really cute one I saw that I want to make. I want to make another pokemon. Maybe a Skrelp or a Dralage or perhaps a life size Joltik. One other note is, I am a student and final exams are approaching rapidly. It is entirely and likely possible that the projects will be delayed slightly due to extra study time. June Update: The next project is going to be a Skrelp from the Pokemon franchise. It has not been started but it is slotted to. I have recently purchased a jig, so I will be playing with it a lot. I may just be copying other's designs, but a few of my own my slip through as well. I have tentative plans to recreate Kyube from Madoka Magica. I have several papercraft projects spinning around in my head. Mostly drawing out templates to recreate some of my favorite characters. I am unsure if I will post them on instructables, as I am unsure as how I would manage it. If any one has any suggestions, I would love to here them. I have an instructable planned on how to do negative word art, and one working with zentangles as well. It will be a while before either happens, as I want more practice first.

I'm REALLY bored at work at the moment and need a personal project to distract me. The problem with past projects is I often run into problems or lose interest and they fall by the wayside. I was thinking that if the project was a collaboration I'd be more motivated and could call on people with better skills than me. Anyways I'll propose a few projects, and let me know if you are interested. Or if you've got an idea, post it up. I'd love to do something robotics related, but m programming skills aren't great. I can use "wrapper" environments, like Matlab and Arduino, but raw C++ isn't a strong point. I've got access to all the CAD stuff that would ever be needed, Pro/E, Solidworks, AutoCAD, ANSYS, Strand7. I've got some skills in and access to composite manufacturing, like carbon fibre and glass but no vacuum baggin facilities anymore. My first project idea is a bargraph type watch - kind of like the awesome binary watches here, but the time increments on a bargraph. I think only one bargraph to show the minutes would be necessary - you pretty much know the hour most of the time, and you could work it out using the minutes if it's around the hour. A ten segment display would give resolution of 6 minutes - good enough for most purposes. I could do the hardware layout and manufacturing for this project, but I don't think I could do the programming. how about a homemade SMS device? not the most practical when mobile phones are so small and cheap and would be WAY more fully featured, but I think it would be cool to have a homemade device that could at least send SMSs. Open source, single sided PCB, would be awesome. obviosuly as small as possible but maybe aim for something the size of a blackberry of treo? Not stylish maybe but maximum hacker cred thumb keyboard ---> microcontroller ---> cellular module&LCD GPS based car locator - I know this functionality exists in modern cars but certainly not my 1994 feroza - a box that sits in your car that SMSs you GPS coordinates if your car alarm is activated. I've been looking for this for ages in a commercial product but the prices are outrageous. Other more outlandish projects are a CNC machine and single sided, through-hole, no (or very little) programming MP3 player Any ideas?
