UV Resin for small batch prototyping in the home shop has come down in price dramatically. Now that it’s an affordable option for making components I’m working on the Wanhao D7 printer again. Along with the printer there are some other necessities. You need rubbing alcohol to clean the prints, plastic containers, and something to…
Hydro dip (or water transfer printing) is a process to paint objects by dipping them in a scum of acrylic paint floated on water. Since that seems pretty straight forward I’m going to try it for painting PLA prints! There’s two caveats here. First, I’m using chrome paint which may react a bit oddly to…
I’m building a weighted base DIY mic stand! Rather than buying it in off Amazon I decided to DIY it and build my own.

With the old Craftsman drill press possibly squared I’ve moved on to checking for runout on the chuck. And to that end I’ve created a 3D printed runout gauge holder for round dial indicator.
Counting the IGUS Drylin bushing test as a success I’m moving back to bearings. For now. Here’s why.
I was attempting use a Craftsman bench press to center drill Titanium bolts with HSS drill bits. It didn’t go well so I’ve made a tool to square the table.
