Simple straight edge for router/saw/etc

Nice build overall, I like the addition of the metal ruler on it. And the author uses blanks to size out a fit for a saw etc…

Gutter vac for 2 story houses

Nice build for cleaning gutters without needing to get a ladder out. Most “commercial” ones I have seen do not go to 2 story houses well. This one does seem to do the job. Just wonder how much that thing weights in the air (and how hard to handle it).

Leaf blower dust collector

Ok this is a clever build, using many cheap and easy to get parts to make a dust collector and seems to work out.

Converting old 3D printers to CNC

Nice idea for light CNC work, not so sure about more intense jobs. The author did the conversion for $30. If you have an old 3D printer you could do this, but keep in mind the motors, drive (belt) may not be built to handle moving a dremel thru an object. Also you may not beable to re-use the controller for the motors in all cases.

Cool knitting machine

It only makes a french braid. But still pretty clever build.

Nice Free standing Lamp build

Nice build over all using metal conduit for the “frame”. I like the black paint finish too. Figure this build would run you under $10 each.

Simple Heat set press

This is used to press inserts (like nuts) into plastic. Interesting and cheap build overall.

Automatic pill dispenser

Nice idea to dispense and tell you if you have taken your pills or not.
