2016-01-15 (F) Weekly Summary

Most of the week was spent on the acetone vapor project. Testing was completed with excellent findings! A foolproof method was found and a relatively quick method was also found but it required more supervision. Good looking video showed what the process looked like in time-lapse, see below. An Instructable was published and featured! People on Instructables commented with even faster methods to process parts but I really like my method which didn't require any special parts or heating elements.

Thursday saw the return of the compass. The last time I did anything with the compass was right before I took off for CES in Las Vegas. Right before I left I made a new spinner design. It was smaller than the previous design but it needed a new base. So I made one. Due to the small size I could use the escutcheon pins as the post without needing to cut them. This design also used shortened nails to the sides of the post instead of a post which was modeled in software.
