Build your own metal detector

Nice build. It seems to work pretty good to. My 2 cents…I think I would just buy a used one myself.

Interesting article on how criminals use your home address to start scamming you

Scamming, or using your credit, etc etc. All can start with just your home address

Another good build for your own nano leafs

Another nice build to make your own version of a nanoleaf. Me…I am on the fence on this, the look is cool, but I can’t justify the cost even with building my own.

Suction cup mount

https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/coronavirus-homemade-tools-78415-15#post200198

Nice idea to build with a Harbor Freight Suction cup. Not so sure I would trust it to mount a camera outside a moving car. But it could be useful for mounting light things like cameras around the house or stationary objects.

make a simple box fan filter

https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmt-forum/corsi_rosenthal_box.jpg

I have seen a few of these builds before, take 4 furnace filters that fit around the box fan (making a 3D box, put the fan on top so it sucks stuff into the box and blows out the top, and presto, a mini HEPA like filter system. Cool build and cheap.

Neat build to generate electricity

Nice idea on how to build a simple device that uses gravity to convert things to electricity (of course you have to lift up the weight first). Could be a nice school poject.

Convert a belt sander to multiple sanding shapes

Nice build where you use the belt sander to drive a larger belt with a shape on it for contoured sanding. My 2 cents, the author built a longer belt for this project, but bigger belts (well if you go really big they are expensive) are not that much more, and could be easier to manage.

A python compiler

This looks interesting, it’s a native compiler for python.  I do like writing code in python, but its slow to run compared to C/C++. Not sure how good this is yet thought.
