The author that build a floating auto tote, now updated to a more modern style (but still had issues). Interesting developing build with this author.

Servo Sock

Interesting build, basically its a box to hold a servo (the hobby servos are not exactly easy to mount) that gives you an easier way to mount and use a servo. Guess the author plans to make a commercial version soon.

Making Strandbeest legs

Nice build, you can print out the templates to make them…me, the templates look like they could be adapted to CNC them out.

Crazy 3 in one build for a dremel

The author made a mill/drillpress, lathe, and router table in one build. Its really nice looking but…wow, would take me forever to build.

Using expanding foam for air wings

Interesting build. The author uses the foam to make the mold and the resulting wing for a model airplane.

Interesting Oscillating sander build

Not so sure I would go to the extent the author did to build this. But still a nice idea and build overall.

Cool grafitti robot

OK kindof a robot. The author still needs to move the skateboard. Anyways the bot writes out a message in chalk dust (from chalk spray) as you skate along. Me…Would be nice to automate that bit and I wish the author put a bit more info on how the spray assembly is made. It looks like the servo just pulls on the sprayer with a spring. Not positive on that.

Nice clamp build

The author provides the plans to build it for free too. This looks like a good design to convert to a CNC as well.

Nice drill press table build

Nice build, I like how it has built in grooves to hold the clamps down. Me…I bought a cheap table at Harbor Freight for $30.
