Workbench Upgrades I built my main workbench nearly a year ago. It remains the most important part of my workshop and I keep improving it. I already blogged about adding a router table and a disk sander. This blog post is about a few more upgrades I did in the last months. Table Saw Fence Update…

Workbench Storage A workshop needs storage. For tools, materials, accessories and doodads. I'm still very happy with my IKEA Trofast system, but it has only three sizes of containers. Sometimes you need something smaller. Or something much smaller. And sometimes something bigger.…

Tool Time: Earmuff Bluetooth Hearing Protection One on my most favorite tools in the workshop is an unexpected one because it isn't really a tool. It's my hearing protection. Hearing protection is essential when operating machines like my table and miter saws, the nail gun or similar. And since I make use of all these machines a lot when working on projects, I tend to wear my hearing protection permanently instead of taking it on and off all the time.…

Tool Time: GKS 18V-57G and a DIY FSN-800 I bought a new tool for the workshop. I'm building new storage and need to process quite a few OSB sheets for that. They are too large to handle on the table saw and making straight cuts with a jig saw is something I still haven't managed.…

PowKiddy V90 TL;DR: I bought a cheap but awesome retro gaming device, but had to start the article with a long trip down memory lane, because this is my blog and I can do what I want here. I remember visiting a big department store in what we still referred to as…

This is only somewhat specific to PrusaPrinters. It also applies to *your* shiny new service you're providing.…

I'm Tired Brittlestar posted this on Twitter and it's so spot on, I had to share it here. …

Hexagons are Bestagons - Printer Cupboard 2 Last month, I blogged about the cupboard I built for my printers. This is part two of that build. This build was considerably simpler. We wanted a simple shelf on top of the cupboard, but also a place to store the 3D printing filament.…

Some Thoughts on Cyberpunk 2077 As many others I was excited for Cyberpunk 2077. I absolutely loved “The Wither 3” and I was always a fan of Neuromancer and Blade Runner. However when the game finally came out, I didn't buy it right away for multiple reasons. One was the steep price of 60 EUR, then there were lots of reports of bugs at launch. Most importantly I wasn't sure if my computer would actually be able to play the game.…

Printer Cupboard My wood working workshop is a great way to relax from all the pandemic home working madness we're in. However many of the things I made so far were smaller projects or improvements to the shop itself. So here's a bigger thing recently finished.…
