Neat CNC that is opensource(?) that can be usedto make box joints and such. Oh it can be used to cut into doors as well so its pretty useful. Reminds me of a shopbot build from 4 years ago. Looks like its still a beta tool, so something to keep an eye on.
OK so I have used inner tubes in the past for rubber bands. I have not thought about turning a tire into a belt thought. Good idea (and unique). Not so sure I would use bolts to hold the buckle in, or maybe just rivets so not to rub up against the pants.
Nice idea the author made for using a bandsaw to make shims as needed. I could see this be adapted for a tablesaw as well. Normally I would just buy shims, but in a pinch, this is a good way to make some.
Good idea for some of those cheap compressors that the motor dies off on you. Author says its around $10 in parts to do, I am thinking closer to $20 if you are unable to re-use parts already on the compressor.
