BE Your Neighbors’ Inspiration!

Inspire your fellow makers by posting some photos and a description of something you are working on this month at the 'Space (or wherever) in this thread!

Small craft projects, large CNC router projects, building tables, 3D printing casting patterns, even DNA extractions and so much more happen at Dallas Makerspace. Cool things done at DMS by cool people often go unseen by our peers, not to mention the curious public. Post up here to share the interesting things you are doing with Dallas Makerspace this month!

Posting here will help promote Dallas Makerspace, inspire others to make something. and help DMS PR show off what can be done here using social media or blog posts (with attribution to each maker of course).

:bulb: NOTE: Please try to include the following on each post, to help make for richer experience:

  • a QUALITY photo
  • WHO you are (for attribution outside of this venue)
  • a notation about WHAT you’ve made
  • HOW you’ve made it (and perhaps HOW DMS helped)
  • and WHY

A vintage Allied 445 receiver lives again!

Replaced both output fuses and the bulb behind the tuning meter with an LED bulb. I still need to replace the dial backlight and the dial indicator light bulbs. I’ll do those in LEDs too.

It sounds fantastic connected up to a pair of old KLH speakers I’ve had sitting in the closet in the game room for the past 6 years. :smiley:

An aluminum hand vise about 2" long, with 1/8" pins for holding irregular parts. The stepped base allows clamping in my Sherline mill vise. The movable jaw runs on two 1/4" dowel pins, with 6-32 set screws to secure them in place. The spring compresses into two counterbored holes, allowing complete jaw closure.

EDIT: I admit to making a couple boo-boos on this, but the reaming went surprisingly well. The dowel pins were such a great fit that they popped out due to the vacuum created. I drilled a vacuum release port in each end to make it easier to use!
