I recently read about how out facial features (like all things) take on a distorted perspective as we get closer or farther away. Getting closer will make your nose bigger, and anything farther from the lens smaller. It isn’t just your nose- it’s whatever is closest to the lens that … Continue reading
Here’s a picture of my setup for how I’m able to (relatively) quickly bang out some bars for the soccer guard. When I set up the mill like this and use the vertical tube to orient and locate the horizontal tube, I just need to drive the X axis to … Continue reading
There it is- the new guard. I haven’t put it onto a chair yet, but I have a good feeling about it. I think I got things fairly straight. A jig to hold everything during tack welding would have made things go together easier. It also would have been nice … Continue reading
I’ve been working on a design for the team that will be somewhat light weight, and not as expensive, time consuming, or fragile as the one I made for Kendra. Aircraft Spruce sells some 1″ diameter tube for $2.80 per foot, compared to $3.50 per foot for the smaller diameter … Continue reading

Here’s what I finished welding today! It’s not as lightweight as the other guards I’ve made, but it’s a copy of one that’s working well. One of the players dads made one just like this, and this is a copy. The thing is STRONG!
This month I’ve been working on power soccer equipment for Borp. Not to brag or anything, but I think it’s OK to toot your own horn every now and then, and now seems like a good time to do it. Here’s a list of what I’ve been up to: Installed … Continue reading
I’ve had an amazing time traveling the country, working on personal projects, and making new friends for the last few months. However, it’s time for a new chapter. My dream is to work in a product design firm, or at least the R&D department of a company that regularly makes … Continue reading
After my bike tour I spent the first couple of weeks off of my bike, and was slow to get back on. First I was trying to let me hand heal (trying to regain 100% sensation in the fingertips of my left hand!), and then I caught a nasty summer … Continue reading
I would love if this happened to me!
