I have been trying to find a reasonably priced milling machine but also trying to find one that doesn't charge two times the price of the machine in shipping costs. I have been looking on Craigslist for the past six months and haven't seen anything. I am in Seattle, WA. Does anyone have any ideas of where I should look?

Hello I am an exhibits designer and builder for a museum. I weld and do some machining every week. I would like to take formal classes here in Philadelphia or the surrounding area but I can not find a single program! One would think that in a major city there would be something but no luck so far. Does anyone know of a school. New Jersey would be ok too. Thank You Montrose

Hello everyone! I have been searching the web for a good source of aluminium pipe (between 1" and 2" thick) with threaded endings and matching fittings. Can anyone suggest a good source? Searching the instructables forums I read about www.simplifiedbuilding.com, but they don't seem to have threaded fittings (only of a slip-on, use-a-set-screw kind). Any suggestion greatly appreciated! Happy '09! James

I'm looking for a steel barrel/drum thing for a project I plan on doing. It's basically a pool heater, using an old car radiator and steel drum. But anyways... I have no idea where I can find one, where carries them or anything of the sort. I'm in central mass if that helps.

I need several glass tubes (10-20) that are around 30-40mm in diameter and 6 feet long. They also can't be rediculously expensive, I've been searching for a while, but all I've been able to find is glass with a length of 4 feet and a diameter of like 10mm. Any help?

Alright everybody, I have a project that requires aluminum rods that will fit together. Does anyone know of a place like mcmaster, in the sense that you can pick and choose your sizes and grades but with a quality that is not industrial? McMaster is just too expensive when looking at aluminum rods. Also, what grade of aluminum do all you DIYers find is the best for multipurpose use? All help is appreciated

Does anybody know where to buy a small tank of neon for making your owns tubes and stuff (for like Tesla coils)? The only place I've found was a place in Europe, and I'm looking for something under 100$ (it was about 60 euros for a tank, which is like 140 dollars or something).

Hi, I just found instructables and it seems like a dream for the how to's that I create for video production into videos. I was just wondering if there was a catagory for video work. I have seen one for photographs but nothing else. Am I missing it? Markapsolon

Is there such a thing as a switch that is touch sensitive so just a tap will activate it. I want to make a lamp out of an empty glass coke bottle and i want to be able to touch the cap to activate it. Im looking for a small piece of silver metal that will match the cap so i can place it on top, OR a way to make the actual cap the switch. Thanks!

Hello everyone... A whhile back I stumbled upon a website that would allow you to enter in your location information and do a search based on "celestial events" "IST fly-over times" satellite locations, meteor shower events, eclipses etc... I recently bought a DSLR camera and a telescope with camera mount. My Son is very much into astronomy and I would love to encourage this for him... The telescope is nothing special, it is my, as well as his first telescope. I would like to capture photos of this up and coming eclipse in April, as well as some star systems and meteor shower events with some long exposure. :) anyway... Does anyone here know where I can find this type of calendar.. I have spent much of the morning Googling, but I am coming up short in finding this... Thanks in advance Matthew

I have been recently looking into engineering and how to build different equipment, and am wondering where people learn to do these kinds of things. The first thing I saw that had inspired me was a man who built a glove and software that replicated finger/hand movements in motion capture fashion that was useful to me because I do 3D animations which is helped by motion capture. I had built it because he had left a step-by-step tutorial on how to do so, and it worked perfectly. The thing that upset me was that I have no understanding of how these parts work, I just bought the equipment and put it together based on his instructions. So I am wanting to ask how I learn about this stuff? Things that I am wanting to learn I believe are geared around Micro controllers (EX: Arduino), MotionTracking Device's (EX: MPU-9150), Multiplexers, and other stuff that revolves around that. I have been looking for tutorials and books to help but have had no luck. Also one of the most frustrating things I faced when putting the gloves together was that I had no idea what 'SIG', 'VCC', 'GND', or any of those meant. I understand that I might sound pretty stupid, but I am genuinely interested in this am looking to learn about it, I just do not know how to. Thank you for any reply in advance.

Hi, I'm lost, and I was wondering if you could help me. I feel stuck in life, and I've decided that I'm going to put my life into action with as much vigor as possible. I've decided to start with finances and education. I've got the finances part figured out, but I have no idea on education. I'm twenty years old. I went to a technical college for Information Technology and Communications Systems, and I left after a year because I was no longer interested, I don't believe I was prepared to take the educational leap (I hindered myself), and I left for a relationship. I don't want to make that mistake again. Being a maker, what types of possibilities are out there for career paths? What type of education should I pursue? How do I make sure that what seems like a great choice doesn't turn out to be a passing fad like my past venture? I feel as if I've wasted too much time. I haven't been in high school for three years, and I have nothing to show for it. I need to get this going as soon as possible.
