LED light circuits are a fun component to add to any build. I’m adding one to the Sega Genesis clone I recently looked at! In this video I take a look at electronic components I commonly use to make cheap DIY LED lights.
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.
Recently the heated bed failed on my Prusa i3 Mk3 (from Prusa 3D). But on the up-side it wasn’t the bed itself, but the cables. So I seized the opportunity to make a video of the troubleshooting process. There’ll also be a follow up video on what replaced the original cable.
Re-use is a common theme. And metal is one of the easiest things you can possibly re-use. But to re-use it you first need a metal melter to melt down the old metal before casting, forging, hammering, milling, or whatever process you’ll use to turn it into something new.
Building your own box fan filter is a great way to reduce the amount of dust in your workspace. I’m going a step further and adding in a variable speed motor control!
Today I’m adding some extra laptop storage space onto the workbench with a length of 2×4 and an underslung metal keyboard tray.
Branded the Mingxi MX-180V mini metal lathe this model is available in a few different configurations from different resellers. And they’ll all have (for the 180V) a digital read-out and 8″ by 12″ work area.
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.
About two years ago I decided that Titanium would make a great material for a throat nozzle. Throat nozzles being the bit between the heatsink and heater on a 3D printer. Fast forward two years. And now you can purchase them from at least a few sources. It’s good to have my notions verified.
