Simple plunger design for paste extruder for ceramic 3D printer

Pretty simple design, not so sure how much more a stepper with threaded rod going thru the shaft is thought.  Its definitely not a common stepper motor to come across. http://www.3ders.org/articles/20181121-how-to-build-a-plunger-style-paste-extruder-for-ceramic-3d-printer-step-by-step-diy-guide.html

Binocular Tripod Mount

I like this build, partly cause I have one of these binoculars.  And they are heavy. https://www.instructables.com/id/Binocular-Tripod-Mount/

I like this build, you can use it to make custom floaties, and quick robot builds (for water). https://www.instructables.com/id/Water-Bottle-Connector-Recycled-Building-System/

CNC your sewing machine

OK this takes the cake, the author basically made an x/y CNC to move a cloth around on a pre-existing sewing machine.  Clever build CNC Embroidery Machine Punches Out Designs a Stitch at a Time

3D printed doweling jig

Interesting build.  I like the use of bearings to control the drill (I just use a board with pre-drilled holes). https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-Doweling-Jig-With-Attachments/

Interesting concrete build

The author did a nice write up on using concrete overall for making decorations.  He 3D printed the “Frame” to use to hold the concrete in its form.  It looks like the mold is re-usable too. https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-Concrete-Table-Mold/

One fancy slingshot build

Pretty impressive one.  The author provides templates so you can cut one out yourself.  Or….maybe convert to cut on a CNC? https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-SlingBow-From-Plywood/
