    DIY Vacuum Table

    I might have to give one of these a try, though my wife won't be happy with me stealing her little shop vac.

    That was an interesting build. Hadn't seen a drag knife before.

    Great video. And that drag knife is very very clever when you think he has made sure to use an off the shelf freely available blade and use both ends of that blade and its durable by comparison to the mickey mouse blade my vinyl cutter has.

    If the US has a Presidents award for design and excellence, it should be given to this guy for his drag knife design attachment.

    See i knew you guys still have it in the genes. Wait and see the next generation of US factories and the products they make. The ingenuity is amazing.

    Question i have for educators is how do you teach ingenuity ? certainly not with the education system i experienced that taught me German language by beating my hands with a ruler for each word i got wrong each day.

    You need to be free and self reliant to come up with these things. Necessity is the mother of invention. I tip my hat to this guy great to see he has his kids involved.
    cheers
