What's a good project to make with an old coffee maker? Answered

I just had one, so I figured Id ask. I dont know if I still do, but I was just curious.


I've seen one used as a planter. The plant and soil replace the filter and coffee grounds in the top. The carafe was used as a watering can... handy, as it's always with the plant.
I don't remember if it was an indoor or outdoor planter though.

Hot tub heater. Water pump. Coffee maker : ) Reagent heater. Distilling rig. Cup warmer. Plastic softener for vacuum former.

You could use the motor to build a fan, or if you're really ambitious, reverse the process to make a wind (or water) energy generator.
