Turn an ESP8266 into a WiFi Jammer

Pretty cheap jammer. The “jamming” part isn’t a radio freq. jammer but more protocol stack based.

Another mini lathe build

I seem to be on a lathe kick lately. Anyways this is a nice build if you have a decent 3D printer to print the parts. Me…not so sure I want an ABS based fram for a wood turner.

Opensource hearing aid

OK after seeing how much pro hearing aids run (3 grand easy). I can see why there is an opensource project. Article indicates the board will run around $250, not including headset. But still thats 10% of the cost of a full blown system. I will be interested to see how this project progresses.

Site for the project:

Make a drill powered hacksaw

Interesting build. Seen a few of these over the years, this one is the first that seems pretty sturdy compared to others I have seen over the years with 3D printed parts.

Using a grinder with a lathe

OK seems a bit crazy, but the author made a duplicator for his lathe with a grinder. Why? Well the grinder can take the wood off even faster, and the duplicator so you can make multiple table legs for example.

Interesting battery operated sander

Interesting build. Not so sure I would make it battery operated based. But hey, it works right.
