Quick Clamp / Release Vice

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 02:26:17 PDT

(image) I do quite a lot of work with circuit boards and small mechanical parts and was finding the 'helping hands' crocodile clip type tool too fiddly and a bench vice too big for my needs, so after a bit of thought I designed my own light duty 3D printed vice with a novel tension and release method. This ...

Simple Effective Mouse Catcher

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 22:30:29 PDT

(image) Every cat owner with an enthusiastic hunter knows the sound - That mew (usually in the silly hours of the night) which means "I've got something for you - and it's a lively one. Let's PLAY!!!" This device makes capturing that small squeaky thing which is running loose around the house a lot easier...

Auto-lock mod for smartphone case

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 12:30:31 PDT

(image) I recently bought a holster type case for my work phone which would lock the phone when it was put in the case. I used that for a while and then thought a flip case would be better so got one for a stupidly low price (99p inc p&p) from AWKIAS. However, this one didn't lock the phone when shut and ...

The Orange Screamer

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 19:30:30 PDT

(image) As soon as I saw Kiteman's laser cut POCKET SIREN I thought it would be good as a 3D printed project too, so here we go with the ORANGE SCREAMER. I designed my own version from scratch using the excellent and *free* DesignSpark mechanical, and printed it on my Wanhao Duplicator 4 (Makerbot clone) ...

Zombie Apocalypse - A Simple Board Game

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 22:30:15 PDT

(image) This is a very old two player strategy game known variously as Hare and Hounds, the French Military Game and several other names and brought slap bang up to date with a theme which relates to the ever-present fear of the ZA. I first came across hare and hounds when reading through Martin Gardner...

Cheap 'n' Cheerful Underwater Webcam

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 01:04:23 PDT

(image) This idea came to me today while watching fish in the pond.  I used a flat sided perspex box (a Ferrero Rocher chocolates box), a cheap webcam, a length of duct tape and plenty of hot glue to get up close and personal to those aquatic chums. I'd already made the box when I remembered Kiteman's Zero...

Cat Cave From Printer Box and Old Carpet

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 02:30:09 PDT

(image) We recently went to our local Blue Cross to meet some cats with the intention of adopting one.  Things proceeded rather quickly and we met Ozzy, agreed to adopt him and arranged to collect him the next day.  It's a long time since we've had a cat so a trip to the pet-shop ensued to get carrier, litt...

Make your hot glue gun cooler!

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 19:30:17 PDT

(image) WHY would you want to make your hot glue gun cooler? Well, hot glue guns are great. They will stick just about any two materials together with a strong and flexible bond which hardens in less than a minute. But . . . I occasionally make radio control model planes out of Depron foam and EPP sheets ...

Soldering a LED to the 'Wrong' Side of a PCB

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 11:30:13 PDT

(image) Why would you want to mount LEDs on the copper side of a single sided board?  How about if you want to mount a board directly behind a front panel with the LEDs showing through holes in the panel.  You can't put them on the usual side because the other components would stop the board fitting flush t...

All The Link Wire You'll Ever Need . . . For FREE!

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 13:00:14 PDT

(image)  Did you know there's 50 metres (160 feet) of high quality stranded multicolour electronics link wire sitting in your "Computer Things Which Will Come In Useful One Day" box at this very moment?  It's that old parallel printer lead which you junked when you got the new USB printer. To get to the wi...
