I love the Back to the Future Delorean.
Projectile motion project for physics 111
This thing's been loads of fun. We built this to hurl anything from paintballs to smaller snowballs, but it can be scaled easily with a few tweaks. As of presentation time we were throwing paintballs 100 meters at about 30 meters/second with a 10 kilogram counterweight. The hook should hold around 40 kilograms, giving us a bit more punch. Might have to try the snowballs this weekend
That's excellent. My daughter and I built a rubberband powered catapault for school a while ago. Wish i had pix, it was a beast. They never specified a limit to the number of rubber bands or power of the device. With a little twisting of about 50 wide rubber bands, the limit became the 3/8" allthread pivot and the 1" dowel for the arm. We built the base out of 2x4's and set it up so she could stand on the ends to anchor it while arming it. initial tests with golf balls yielded similar results to yours. *and some odd looks from the neighbors. We reduced the power considerably before taking it to school.
Yeah, golf balls are on the list for sure. Our test range made that a little dangerous, but wide open spaces aren't far away. Think they'd give me shit at the driving range?
I Made Daughter's Birthday Present.
One of my projects today...
New gauges for the 1996 K1100RS are no longer available.
This works fine, but it looks bad.
So I made a lens for it.
This is the first time I've ever done anything like this.
Pulled it apart.
Got a free "drop" from Lowes.
I shaped it a dermal then 200 grit followed by 600 grit sandpaper.
Put it back together.
Because the "drop" was 1/16" thicker, it wouldn't close as tightly as I wanted, so I first ran a bead of gel-super glue around it, then nested in a this gasket, then ran another bead of gel-super glue.
I can't show you something I've made. You'd have to hear it.
Well done. Nothing like the new look.
I have fixed many instruments in my career. I usually get the glass cut at the local glass shop, they have all the right diamond tools and like to do my "odd" requests.
Sogani, Looks like Old Blue is still giong strong.

I love ya sweetie.
I probably wouldn't have the guts to tear into it that far.
Not sure what this is.
Looks like a ring to me.
Yup. Big honkin bling ring. Iron Pyrite (fools gold) crystal matrix with a vug ( hole shaped void) Just big enough to mount a 6mm round brillant blue Topaz ( a December Birth Stone). Sorry for the poor pics. The crystals scatter the light.
Ahh. My scale was off. Thought the wood piece was a bat at first.
Yup, you and me both, thinking bracelet on a base ball bat for a big boned gal...
Handle of small jewelers hammer used to hold ring upright.
Cherry Chest I made years ago when I was into woodworking more. It's up at my shop getting touched up from the damn puppy.
Not lined but I may do that someday. I cut the dovetails by hand.
A couple of brass and rosewood squares I made about the same time. Took the design from Bridge City tools.
Before I became a nurse, I was sign painter, like in using paint brushes, no vinyl.
