Homemade (Router Jig) - Etch A Sketch Style!
Chris   May 07, 2014   1   0  
If you loved the Etch-A-Sketch as a child and find yourself missing it as adult, then you will like what one guy built in his workshop. With only a few dollars worth of parts and a router, YouTube's Izzy Swan made the grown-up version of the classic child's toy. But instead of drawing with aluminum powder, his version carves into wood with a router. Like the classic Etch-A-Sketch, it takes great skills to draw something that actually looks like something—so I will not be making one of these.
Motorizing and test driving the scaffold
Chris   March 21, 2014   1   0  
Matthias Wandel, of once again proves that he can build pretty much anything out of wood and other scraps he has lying around his shop. In previous videos he built himself a wooden scaffold to reach the lights that needed to be changed in his large shop. In his latest video he uses more scrap wood and a drill to motorize his scaffold, complete with forward, reverse, and steering. The results are more impressive than you might have thought.
The Art Of Bosch Tools In Slow Motion
Chris   July 12, 2012   1   1  
We all love to see things in slow motion. We get to see how the items we use every day really work and what secrets they hold that are normally hidden by normal speed. Check out the video below to see how your everyday Bosch tools work in slow motion. One thing we can see for sure is that it is always best to wear safety glasses when working with tools; there is a lot of small debris flying around.

If you have ever seen the show Mythbusters, you have probably seen the amazing contraptions they build to help them prove or disprove a myth. They have an amazing shop to work out of with all the tools needed to build anything. So when Adam Savage has access to so many tools, what two do you think are his favorites?
Makibox a6 3d printer
Chris   February 01, 2012   1   1  
3D printers are becoming more and more popular among the DIY crowd. The open source community has been playing a huge part in allowing people to purchase or build their own 3D printers at prices in the neighborhood of $1000, which is pretty good considering what they can do. This year 3D printers are even more popular and the prices are coming down, way down.
New Gorilla Glue Cap Promises To keep Your Glue Fresh
Chris   January 30, 2012   1   2  
I always roll with a bottle of Gorilla Glue in my tool box, as one never knows when he/she might need to glue something up. But reaching for that glue bottle only to find out that it has cured in the bottle, can be a real problem. The thing about Gorilla Glue is that it reacts and cures using water, and evidently, even the moisture in the atmosphere is enough to start the curing process. Knowing how unhappy dried up glue makes us, Gorilla Glue set out to fix the problem.
Keter Master Pro Sliding Tool Chest
Chris   January 25, 2012   1   0  
Rolling tool boxes are becoming more and more popular on the jobsite. Workers often have to pick up from one location and move to another, and having wheels makes the process that much quicker and easier. Stanley makes a rolling tool chest that is commonly found on the jobsites and is one that I use, but the features on the Keter Master Pro Sliding Tool Chest have me thinking I need a change.
Imperial Blades T340 Titanium
Chris   January 23, 2012   1   0  
I am still amazed at the amount of jobsite issues an oscillation tool can help me solve, and I am very thankful to have this technology. I also think back to jobs where an oscillating tool could have saved me a ton of time and energy. But as great as these tools are, the blades seem to be the weak link. Is the future of oscillation tools in blades? Maybe titanium blades?
5-Piece Festool Zobo Forstner-Style Bit Set
Chris   January 05, 2012   1   0  
When you need to bore a clean precision hole, the forstner bit is probably pretty high on your list of bits to choose from. The center point is long enough to ensure that the bit doesn't wonder, but it is also short enough to allow the user to make stop cuts without breaking through the other side. But this short center really limits one's ability to use a forstner bit to drill on an angle. This, is where the Festool ZOBO bit aims to fill the gap
Future of Construction Process: 3D Concrete Printing
Chris   December 28, 2011   1   0  
I think one of the coolest advancements over the last few years is in 3D printing. The process is desirable because it allows architects, designers, inventors, etc, the ability to see their concept in 3D in a matter of hours. One of the most common 3D printing methods involves inkjet printing a binder onto a layer of powder. Each layer is stack printed in place, thus creating a 3D model. If you are watching the current season of This Old House, you have seen the method in action.
