There are ready made kits for iron-on or heat transfer printing. Shmoxd tried out two of them, then at 5:24 shows us how you can make ones just as good using screen printing and heat transfer powder. This method is cheap and good for low volume production.
THE BEST Making
Mark Rober and his friends worked with Destin of Smarter Every Day to add rockets to a golf club. The resulting contraption can consistently propel a golf ball to 150mph. It’s so powerful, they couldn’t find the balls it hit. They also made a weaker handheld version.
A look inside a factory that makes collectible figurines, as its designs go from sketch, to digital model, to wax model, to silicone mold, to plastic model, to plaster cast, to metal die for creating the final production pieces. Those pieces are then hand-painted and assembled.
While they’re pretty cheap and easy to come by these days, maker of stuff The Q decided to see if he could build himself a stabilizing rig for a camera for the heck of it. His oversized gimbal uses PVC pipe for its structure, and the platter from a hard drive as its gyro wheel.
How to Make Everything gathered or made various cleaners from scratch – pumicite, borax, baking soda, vinegar, oxalic acid, bleach, lye, acetone, and ethanol. But before that, he had an interesting conversation with someone who cleans crime scenes for a living.
Metalsmith Miller Knives is at it again, this time digging into his bin of hardware to create a teensy version of a Japanese Kunai throwing knife from a stainless steel bolt. It might not be the most effective weapon at this size, but it still is pretty stabby.
Science Channel takes inside a factory that cranks out laptop computers like the one you might be looking at this very minute. The assembly starts out using high speed robots to pick and place parts on its circuit boards, but the rest is a labor-intensive, manual process.
A look inside the P. van der Wegen Gear factory, where they make enormous gears for mining applications. While the process of milling these massive parts is truly fascinating, we can only imagine what they look like when in use in the machinery they’re destined for.
There are few more relaxing places than sitting in an old adirondack chair overlooking a lake. But if you want a little more room to spread out, check out this gargantuan version by Jackman Works. Want one for yourself? Just grab these plans and double the dimensions.
Using cardboard for its shell, and popsicle sticks and R/C car parts for its drivetrain, V. Idea created a miniature utility truck with spinning brushes that sweep up lightweight objects from the sidewalk in front of it. Hot glue is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
TheCrafsMan SteadyCraftin has the best voice of any artist since Bob Ross, so that just makes his video of how to build a robot sculpture from found objects that much more charming. He also provides useful advice on soldering nearby joints without ruining adjacent ones.
