The dangers of Teflon Tape
Thread tape, Plumbers tape, whatever you want to call it. You may have seen it used on hose fittings to help keep fluid inside. What many people don't know and can cause quite major problems is that you must be very careful about how it is applied. I recent...

So I have finally got everything in place to use my CNC Lathe. To test it I ran it in manual mode. I stuck with the default settings of 80 mm/min, 0.25mm X incremental feed & 0.1mm Z incremental feed. I had a play with the spindle speed just to see what wou...

One of my relatives who recently got a computer upgrade had the old Hard Drive from the old machine and was concerned that there could be some sensitive data on it still. So, being the helpful young man I am I volunteered to destroy any data that might be h...

Don't let fear stop you
Sometimes we come across projects or sub projects that we don't want to take on because we are worried what others might think, if it's safe, if others will think it's safe, if it's too expensive. The problem is that when we let these fears and concerns gov...

Getting closer
So I finally have a space inside for me to work on the CNCs. This is a drastic improvement over where they were. outside. Where I would freeze in winter, cook in summer and be attached by mozzies at any time of the year. I had planned to build a set of besp...

Amazing what a few coats of paint can do
Finally more progress has been made on the Fireball. We originally saw it here . About a year ago when I went for a drive up to Queensland and came back with the Fireball on the back of a borrowed trailer. More recently we saw me getting a trailer of my own...

There's the right way, then there's my way.
Sometimes you just can't do things the "right" way straight off the bat. This is a great example of that. I've been trying to get Jerry (The NAS server) working so we can share files among our LAN. Unfortunately the RAID card in there doesn't like to play n...
