build your own portable saw mill

The author saws for 100 bucks…well if you didn’t have to buy a few things, or the chainsaw, drill….

Still a nice build.

Making your own sanding belts

basically you “sand” down and end of a strip, and then superglue the two ends together. Not sure how well this works myself.

Another nice ruler marking gauge build

I like the jig the author makes to sand out the middle of the two boards for the ruler to fit.

Making a smart buoy

Nice build, the author designed this to help with monitoring in the ocean. But I could see it being used in things like ponds and lakes too. It uses an RPi too.

Simple paint can mixer

I got a kick out of this build. Just need 2 used sawzaw blades, and a cheap clamp.

Convert an busted grinder into a disc sander for your drill press

I got a kick out of this, The author basically is using the shaft and right angle on the grinder to attach to the drill press and a sanding disk.

3D print some puck corner clamps

Clever build for a corner clamp, as long as both boards are the same thickness. Only issue I see is that you would pretty much have to do a 80% or more fill on the puck to allow for decent clamping.
