So far the prototype has given me a run for my money, but it is coming along… As it stands, It’s two pieces of steel (1 20ft. Stick of 7/16” CRS), and twelve 1.5” radius bends. There will be more to follow…

Five minute study in wire frame chair design. Not at all what the finished product will look like, just seeing what would happen when I started bending bailing wire. I am designing a chair with as few components as possible that will cost very little to produce… LONG way to go yet…

I just mocked up the new mobile base for the PlasmaCAM. It only needs a coat of paint, and a detachable plasma cutter rack to stow the “business generator” under the table. Next up material handling rack/table for storing sheets and loading the table. I’ll shoot a few pictures of the next few items I end up making.

Keyboard, etc. drawer. Did I mention this computer cabinet was almost entirely made of recycled and free materials? The only parts I purchased were the casters and blue paint…. the frame was made from a porch swing that my neighbour through away, the melamine came from a treadmill, the acrylic widow was out of a drugstore display, and the drawer guides were from an old sink display from my last job. Almost forgot, the cooling fan for the computer enclosure was something I found 8 years ago in the trash.

New computer cabinet for the PlasmaCAM. Just something quick and dirty to keep the nasties out of the computer. It’s self cooling with filtered air supplied from a 5” fan, a 4 square foot drawer (to stow keyboard, mouse, software, and consumables), and four swivel casters that all lock to keep it in place. I had to paint it, so I just matched it to the table… Next up, mobile base for the table, sheet material handler, and massive downdraft exhaust system.

Want! That surface grinder is a really cool, old, and simple looking piece that works perfect in front of that blue wall! The chart above looks like something you would find in my shop.

New electrical pulled to the west side of my shop.  3 220v outlets, 4 duplex receptacles (8 110v outlets). Hopefully this will cover that side of the shop until I can just get a new shop. Next up, big downdraft exhaust system for the PlasmaCAM, and a computer cabinet to protect the control computer.

Need a weird switch plate for the new outlet to power my belt grinder, but I could not find one in stores. Designed in just a few minutes and test “cut” with a silver Sharpie on black melamine.
