A cheap light bulb changer

For those bulbs up high that you can’t reach. Basically it’s an adapter you add onto a PVC pipe to screw in and out the light bulb.

Nice router lift

Nice built that uses a standard trim router. Been looking at building my own but trim routers (used and cheap) are hard to find. Full size ones are easier to find.

Insulate the bottom of your heat bed

You know I didn’t think of this before, but its a good idea. The heat bed on a 3D printer will “waste” heat from the bottom, so you waste energy. The author puts insulation on the bottom to help reduce that cost. Not a bad idea.
