Using the head from a cordless drill as an endstock

The title on the video confused me. The author basically is using the head from a cordless drill to be part of the tailstock for a homemade drill based lathe. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/homemade-lathe-wood-using-old-gearbox-reducer-cordless-drill-76799?homelistings#post148280

3D print a brake for your vise

Interesting build for a metal bending brake for your vise. Not so sure I would do this as I don’t know if I would trust it. Also you can buy one for your vise for $40.

Review of a resin printer

The author did a nice review on a cheap resin printer. The Phrozen Sonic Mini, the review sounds interesting, but I can’t find it anywhere for $200, maybe $300.

3D printed Dremel CNC

basically its the mounts and axis for a simple 3D printed CNC to use with a dremel. The write up the author does on the CNC build is pretty nice too. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4091836

Nice 3D printed z axis

This is a nice and simple 3D printed frame for a z axis on a robot or CNC. It goes with a full CNC the author is building. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4098508

Another nice wood lathe build

Bit more work than I am willing to do, but nice build overall. I like the tailstock build and the bar used for the tool rest. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/wooden-lathe-diy-strong-76763?homelistings#post148156

Buskill, deadman’s switch for your linux box

Interesting project where if you remove the USB cord, custom cord, the linux box will start self destruct. Not so sure I would want this setup…maybe on a stationary device, but not a laptop. https://www.zdnet.com/article/new-usb-cable-kills-your-linux-laptop-if-stolen-in-a-public-place/

Nice pin jig for router table

Nice jig to use to follow a template and make a cut on the undersize of a board. I like this a bit better than some of the other tracer builds I have seen (easier to store too). https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/pin-router-premium-homemade-router-table-77279?homelistings#post150253
