Cut the one on the left ​​​​​​almost 5 years ago. Made the one on the right the other night on a 3d resin printer.

I made more zines and uploaded two to the printer last night.

And we have zines. One arrived today, the other is en route.

Does a photo count? From last night in downtown Orlando.

That’s Hathim on the left and Lindsey on the right. Total pros.

Wall Mount for the junkyard 240z wheel I picked 10 years ago! Goes in my nice little 48sqft home office. I had everything laying around the garage so it was #free

Recently I made a new shift boot for my boxster with leftover scraps from a curtain project. The pattern is a bit out there but I figure the boxster is grey so what the heck.

I'm into it 

I treated myself to a Function First shift knob with a delrin ball. Big fan. That would set it off IMO

and someone on here can make a beachwood shift knob that threads onto the FF shaft I'm interested.

Man I think this is the only thread I've ever made that has made it more than a handful of pages!

Here's a project I've been working on: making extended length dropouts for my rigid mountain bike. The stock ones aren't really well designed for maximizing tire clearance and in fact about half the adjustment range is totally wasted because the tire would contact the seat tube. So I resigned it with the axle moved back 15mm. They're currently still in 3d printed prototype stage but I am planning on eventually machining some in the near future. With these I should be able to easily fit a 29x3.0 tire and probably still have room for a full fender for wet rides.

I lined this hinged box with copper sheet that I've had laying around for years. We've had a lot of auto theft in the last year or so, and a lot of the recent thefts are being done by using relays to get access into the car. I tested this proof of concept and it seems to work quite well.

Does the copper prevent the signals from escaping the box??

I turned these turn signal extensions for my brother's 356. I've had this stuff sitting in my garage for about a year trying to figure out how to get the angle cut cleanly and still be able to turn a step for the bezel to sit on.

In reply to MyMiatas :

Yes, I believe it is blocking the signal. My wife's car uses a fob. So my test was placing the fob in the box and then trying to unlock the car using the driver door exterior button. Nothing happened.  So I then took the fob out of the box and unlocked the door, got in the driver seat and placed the fob back in the box. I then tried to start the car (push button) and again, nothing / no start.  So I think it's working well to block the signal.

I bought a Bluetooth speaker kit a while back from Parts Express for a winter project but never got beyond assembling the amplifier.  My wife and I took the fun car for a ride on Friday for lunch and found this cool vintage soda box at an antique shop.

A few hours in the shop on between Saturday and a rainy Sunday afternoon and we have this:

It sounds really good too!

Made a garden fringle for our daughter in law's Mothers Day.  Made up old silverware and ball bearings.  I tried to make a half circle with a weight on one end, from the center of the upright to hang underneath so the Bug rocks in the breeze.  2 lbs of wire and scrap metal later, I just welded the thing down!
