    pop up tent/canopy

    yup that's the one I am looking at. I don't relish the idea of putting it up when it 110+ degrees so It may wait until winter. Maybe get it as a Christmas

    pop up tent/canopy

    I have a 10x20 slab outside the back of my shop and I'm looking at the 10x17 from harbor freight for that. The inside near the house I and use water jugs and the outside I can stake it to the ground that would effectively make my 10x20 shop a 10x37. I can't think of a better way to double my...

    Electrical Plugs, not just funny faces.

    I went with the L14-30, I only have 2 in the shop. That's what I put in when I wired it 13 years ago. My emergency generator had them and I wanted to keep everything the same, Even the CNC is on one, although it would be fine with a 20 amp, that what the service in the shop is set up and I...

    A Shaker Oval Box

    Dave I never said you couldn't do 3D print design in SU all I said is That I and many others have found that the ability to take those designs to either a cam software for CNC or to a printer much easier. Less hoops to junp through. Paul McWorter states it much better than me in his free...

I was also hesitant to take the time to learn Fusion but I discovered that I could save m drawing from fusion on my computer and that made it OK, the program is still cloud based but at least my files are kept where I know they are safe.

    Circuit Board Design

    I'm not say'n I'm old but I worked on tube amplifier I even did some work with magnetic amplifiers in the 60's. Then transistors were a god send and TTL logic is how we built 'Computers" there was no "CPU". Hell the first IC I worked with was the venerable LM 741. My first CPU was the motorola...

    Circuit Board Design

    sure beats back in the day (70's) when I had to put black drafting tape on clear Mylar then do a photo mask followed by acid etching and then manual drill then holes, plated through holes were another fun thing for double sided. Guess I am showing my age. So I guess no one bothers with doing...

    California, Karen Fire and Meatloaf

    These pictures remind me of when I lived out there. We had a few of those when I lived in Alta Loma. One of the many reason why I am glad I left the state 14 tears ago.
