Day 37: Flick Face. Perf board, LEDs, coin cell battery, battery holder, resistors, hookup wire, and springs. I made some whisker switches using the springs from ball point pens I got at the bank. The circuit kind of looks like a face and you get the best results when you flick the board.
I was very pleased with the results. The cuts is a bit choppy because I didn’t lock the 2×4 down too well, but for a first cut, not bad. I think I might use this for planing oddly shaped lumber, making rectangular voids in material, and creating simple slots.
Putting together a system for a window display. The area is incredibly tight and we need everything to ride on a rail. We also need some bumpers to prevent everything going off the rails. Cobbled this guy together from some nuts, a bolt, washers, and a rubber stopper.
Just finished two walnut pieces for a Gabe BC video sculpture. Glued up the walnut blanks, then turned them round, then on to the 4-axis CNC for some milling, then back to the lathe to finish it all off. Video screens fit inside and original content will be running on them soon.
Been experimenting with my vacuum former again. I’ve been making more hearts for robots, but this time I’m using plastic plates as my material source. Not only is it very affordable, but also food safe. I could use these for chocolate molds.
