Once fancy lego sorter

This one is pretty amazing. This is one big lego sorter (made of legos of course). It uses AI to id and find new lego parts to add to its category. https://www.ubergizmo.com/2019/12/lego-sorter-uses-neural-network/?utm_source=mainrss

Cool jig for pattern holes on a drill press

Nice idea. Me…I just use pegboard on the board to do the holes.

crazy build for an automated hacksaw

This is a funny build to watch. The author went thru alot of work to make a power hacksaw. Me…The amount of work he put in he could have gone to Harbor Frieght and bought the cheap portable bandsaw. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/homemade-power-hacksaw-76474?homelistings#post147033

Make your own metal chain sprockets

Not so sure I would do this myself. The author makes his own sprockets from a piece of sheet metal. Impressive to watch.

Nice additions to build for your angle grinder. And the good thing is the author did all the builds without welding! https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/3-angle-grinder-hacks-video-76508?homelistings#post147175

Another nice table saw sled

I like the ability to cut angles with this build. Bit more work than I would have planned on making one.

Bending PVC pipe

This time the author heats up play sand (up to 400 degrees) and pours it into the pipe to then bend it. Then let it cool.

Nice bandsaw featherboard

Nice build overall, bit more work than I would take on. Maybe I could do the 3D printed version? https://www.instructables.com/id/Bandsaw-Featherboard-and-Point-Fence/
