Make your own fogger

Interesting build. If you have the parts, could be worth doing. Myself, I think you can buy one of these for $10.

Interesting Chisel Sharpening build

Using some bearings, nuts, and a really thick threaded rod. Pretty simple build, but it must have taken forever to cut the slot in the rod. I think I would have bought something instead of doing all that for the slot.

Another simple respirator build

With the covid counts going up, this stuff has been crossing my mind a bit more. THis is a pretty simple build if you can get the airbag to use to inflate lungs. Its amazing how simple the technology overall is.

Nice Fume Extractor build

The author basically mounts a PC fan to a car phone mount. Which it nice since it can be angled. I like the wood frame too with the LED on/off light.

This siphon looks easier to use than my store bought one

The one I have from the store you have to push up and down to get it started, this one is a nice simple squeeze build.

Wow this is one heck of a table saw sled

This sled has multiple options to it (the video only shows one new one). I like this guys build. Puts my homemade sled to shame.

Nice cross cut build for circular saws

Nice an fancy looking build for cross cuts with a circular saw. I have debated building one of these myself. Not so sure I would go this fancy for a build thought.

Nice build to convert a soldering iron to a hot knife

Nice build (and cheap too) to add in a knife bit to a soldering iron.
