Nice hammer mod

But I am not so sure I would do it…well maybe with a Harbor Frieght hammer (cheap). Reason being is I am a bit worried the one deep cut in the hammer could compromise it if I really “nail” something in hard. I have seen hammers for sale that have this sort of setup already too.

The lathe from scrapes

The author put that it only cost him $3 in stuff he didn’t get from scrapes to build this. Overall its a pretty simple build. Could be good for not just using dremel bits stationary, but also make pens from blanks. I like how he used a table saw to make slots.

Nice groove making jig

Its used to make grooves in the edges of a board. When I first saw this I wasn’t sure what it was, til the example in the beginning of the video then it made sense.

Another nice tumbler build

Nice build. Its all in the video so you have to watch it to see the build vs read. But author goes into a lot of details. Including some failures along the way.

Portify your tools that need bases

I have done something a bit more fancier than this for portifying some of my tools. Overall nice build.

Build a slingshot from scratch

Nice write up on building one. Only downside is the author has a full woodworking shop which makes life easier.

Bench grinder to belt sander

I like this build, and the author has some improvements at the bottom. Only issues I see is keeping the belt in line so it doesn’t slip off, and I think it would work better upright than on its side. Oh not so sure about the build being done in under an hour

Tool to use your Drillpress as a Tapping Fixture

OK I admit I have done this mostly by hand, but putting a handle on the chuck of the drillpress is a good idea to make a manual turner for tapping a hole. Just make sure you unplug the drillpress first, just in case.

Nice build for hold down clamps

The author built them by hand. Me…I could see converting this to a CNC.

Make your own bandsaw

Nice project but…I think I would buy one myself off craigslist. Seems like alot of work.
