3D printed Cyclone Dust Separatorsteve918

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 21:45:47 +0000

I do a bit of wood working and have trouble with my shop vac filter clogging and needing to be replaced frequently.  The filters are $20 a pop and the vacuum is much less effective at filtering really small particles than a cyclone so I designed a cyclone separator  to extract the saw dust more efficiently and […](image)

Lulzbot Extruder Hackingsteve918DSC_0148

Wed, 31 Dec 2014 23:55:55 +0000

I was hoping that all my extruder issues were over when I sold the Makerbot (mentioned in my previous post), but unfortunately I am slowly becoming an expert in building and repairing Lulzbot extruders.  The good news is that unlike the Makerbot the Lulzbot is 100% open-source and it is trivial for me to print […](image)

I’ve had a 3D printer for a while now and really love the technology.  I especially love sharing the joy and wonder of 3D printing with other people.  While I initially had a lot of issues getting good prints out of my Afinia H279, over time I’ve learned a lot of tips and tricks that make life […](image)

This simple racing stripe transforms the room from a nursery to a proper big-boy room.  I didn’t want to spend ~$15 on a pint of interior paint and the stripe is high enough on the wall it shouldn’t see a lot of wear so I opted to use a bottle of $2 craft paint.  The […](image)

Designed using iDraw on Mac, cut out of 1/8″ fiberboard, then painted silver. After that they went back into the laser to etch the lettering and filled in the lettering with a black Sharpe. I attached some badge magnets to the back with hot-glue to finish them off.(image)

Simple Golang Keystoresteve918

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 09:23:14 +0000

After doing mobile programming for a while I’ve become fond of  the simple, non-performant, OS key-value stores.  While playing with Golang on the Raspberry Pi I thought it would be nice to have. So for your amusement I went ahead and released it. https://github.com/steve918/keystore(image)

Cool bicycle brake disk clocksteve9187935092686_d9ae1c2cd5_z

Wed, 05 Sep 2012 20:43:45 +0000

My wife made me this great clock for my birthday. The brake disk was free at a local bike shop. Very cool “up-cycling”. (very much pun intended)(image)
