2017-10-28 (Sa) HackadaySummary

I've compiled a few sentences about each Hackaday article I've written this week. Rather than dedicate a whole day to talking about how I selected and wrote about it, I will just write once a week and link to the articles I found interesting enough to write about.

Enlarged Miniature Forklift
LEGOs influenced the early years of a lot of makers and hackers. They taught us that the machines in our lives were made of pieces and those pieces could be reconfigured into new machines. This uncle-nephew team built an early Technics kit while simultaneously building a quintuple-sized model from 3D printed blocks. All the moving parts worked on both models.

Everything Worth Knowing about Lockwire
A couple times in my past I wished I had known about lockwire, also known as safety wire. It keeps bolts from coming undone while in high-vibration machinery. A couple times I’ve built something where a bolt or two just wouldn’t stay tight and lockwashers weren’t enough. Now I know.

You can find all my Hackaday articles on my author page.
