A while back, Shadow Foam built a custom-cut foam tool organizer for their Makita power tools. After moving to a new workshop, they built an upgraded version using their new and improved foam, and incorporating feedback from followers. You can purchase Shadow Foam for your own projects here.
The makers of the Shelby Destroyer set out to make the most durable, accurate, and fast foam disc blaster. Designed for hardcore players, the blaster fires up to 6 rounds per second with a velocity up to 160 feet per second. It has fully-automatic and semi-automatic modes, and its quick-reload magazines hold up to 120 discs.
Inspired by a Tech Ingredients video that claimed that a couple of pieces of foam board and inexpensive audio exciters were the “World’s Best Speakers,” AmplifyDIY decided to put the design to the test. It’s hard to know how they sound in person, but he certainly was impressed at the audio that $60 worth of parts can produce.
After getting his hands on a foam cylinder that looks like a gigantic NERF dart, Ivan Miranda did what any enterprising geek would do, and built himself a weapon to launch his oversize ammo. He built his bazooka from PVC drain pipe, 3D-printed parts, rubber surgical tubing, and paracord to reset its plunger.
There are lots of ways to keep tools organized, but there’s something very satisfying about custom-cut foam dividers that hold tools perfectly in place. The guys at Shadow Foam make that kind of dense foam, and recently used a huge sheet of it to create an epic wall for mounting and organizing all their Makita power tools.
