This is a cylinder mount I created to fix a Raspberry Pi camera inside a specific ABS junction box.
This basic object can be used to mount a Raspberry Pi camera using 2mm nylon bolts inside an IP67 junction box. It is 57.5mm wide and fits inside certain IP67 Sealed ABS Plastic Junction Box measuring 73x80x53mm. I created it to mount a camera inside a weather-proof box to serve as a security camera. The cylinder can be rotated in the box to adjust the camera pitch angle. Centre hole : 4mm diameter to accept 3mm threaded bar Total length : 57.5mm...

It's an MDF base with 3D printed parts. The barrel is 40mm waste pipe with printed detail. The scope is real :) The 3D parts are available in my Thingiverse collection : http://www.thingiverse.com/MattHawkinsUK/designs/page:1

Tree root damage at Little Stoke Park. Blamed on runners by Stoke Gifford Parish Council. Just like the trees we aren't paying. #Parkrun #LittleStoke #StokeGifford #Bristol

The Little Stoke Parkrun has now officially been cancelled. The council never explained why runners were expected to pay £1 a week for tree root damage. The reason they didn't explain it was mainly due to their logic being full of #$%&.

This a mount which allows a cheap mobile phone magnetic lens to be attached to a Raspberry Pi camera.
This mount allows you to mount a magnetic lens to the Raspberry Pi camera module. These magnetic lenses are sold as sets online for attaching to mobile phones. They are cheap and a great way to alter the standard Pi camera module. This mount can be screwed to the Pi module using 2mm nylon bolts. An 8mm metal washer can be inserted and the magnetic lens will simply stick to the washer. Depending on the fit the washer can be held in place with a fe...

This is my Post Office of choice for posting parcels. They can offer Royal Mail and Parcel Force services which means you can use whatever service is cheaper. Not all Post Offices offer Parcel Force. The Postmaster knows all the services available and is happy to advise on the one to use to give you the best value for money.

The coffee and cake was nice but the prices can only be described as extortionate. The place is a den of thieves and should be avoided. Yes you expect to pay a premium in a tourist hotspot but I felt like I had been mugged when we left. Please avoid at all costs. I can't imagine you will find a more expensive cafe in the whole of Italy.
