Been meaning to make a Tesla Valve for a long time. It still amazes me that this works with no moving parts.
The Sleeping Machine was one of my favorite experiments to come out of the 100 Days of Making class I took part in. It’s a simple crank mechanism made of laser cut acrylic, attached to a DC motor gear box.
Once again Donald Bell has been kind enough to mention a project of mine in his weekly Maker Update.
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.
Finally, finished an idea I’ve had kicking around for a little while. I vacuum formed some styrene over a stepper motor circuit board, to be a quick custom project enclosure.
I formed it directly over the circuit board. After a little trimming and sanding, the cover fits great.
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.
