2018-02-30 (F) Weekly Summary

All the ultrasonic transducers I have encountered at the maker level have been for creating or measuring waves for calculating distance. The video for which the article was written focused on transducers built for power. The examples given by the creator were mostly for tools like an ultrasonic, drill, knife, and soldering iron.

This watch case build was so well photographed that I gleaned all the necessary details just by watching a slideshow. Later, I found out there was a well-documented Imgur page with all the details for a machinist to replicate the build.

I am anything but a gearhead. The parts of a car I can’t fix would fit neatly into a repair manual. When I read about a team putting a Honda Accord body onto a Tesla drivetrain, I was suitably impressed. When I began writing, I was also feeling a strong pull to write puns so you may find a few in the article.

Not all of my business cards have been published, and there are still some which need revisions, but this one was successful on the first try. The two distinguishing characteristics which set this one apart from previous versions where that it had a section meant to be broken out which could function as its own NFC sensing tool. That breakout portion was also a guitar pick. In a beautiful pun, it was named the JeanLucPickCard.


I had been watching another Reno hackspace member making gorgeous dice boxes, and it got me thinking about a dice carrier, but I didn’t want to copy her design which was timeless and rather large. I wanted to design my own which would be minimal and highly functional. I also wanted to build it in a weekend. TowerBox integrated a die rolling tower with a carrying container, and it converted with the help of magnets.


The rest of the weekly summaries have been arranged by date.
