I need help in deciding what to build next.

1257 days ago by GaryK | 57 comments »

I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...

Any good ideas on a first project for a boy? Knowing me, I’ll probably ask him to do something beyond his skill level. Thanx in advance. Kevin

basic financial planning #11: Retirement planning and timing.

1197 days ago by BigTiny | 12 comments »

Here in Canada, we have the RRSP or registered retirement savings plan. I’m sure the USA has something very similar. It is basically a savings account that allows deposits to be made each year and then allows you to deduct the deposit from your taxable income. The amount you can deposit eac year is limited by a number of factors that aren’t important to today’s discussion. That topic is timing. If you are like most people who take advantage of this program, you make y...

Spalters Inc. #5: Second attempt preliminary results: win

1148 days ago by Sodabowski | 13 comments »

Hey guys, Out of the six compartments that I inoculated with Chlorociboria Aeruginosa in my petri dishes, one has absolutely settled and started growing and producing xylindein. Still I have to clean them every few days as the molds that invited themselves to the party are tough to fight, so I opted for the “gardening” method and just mow them out when they become too invasive. Using a lab culture medium would have prevented that from happening, but as I already stated in the p...

Handplanes #4: You don't know Jack!

1015 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

It all began when I was building my workbench (blogged here). I was using my first (dedicated woodworking tool purchased) #5 BORG buck-bros Jack plane and it broke. It was working quite well after I learned to tune it, but the materials it is made of are just too weak and flimsy and the yoke that controls the blade travel just broke and became useless: I was bummed, but hey it was a good learning experience, and I have been keeping an eye open for a replacement #5 ever since. not reall...
