6 in 1 Mini Machining Tools

I bought this machining kit on 2011 from hobbyking.com, but I think they are not selling it anymore. 
But you can still buy the similar set here: ( but not recommended to buy )
http://www.dx.com/p/6-in-1-motorized-...
Or a better one here: (it might have more metal components on this set)
http://www.dx.com/p/6-in-1-diy-multi-...

Since many of the component are made out of plastic, and it was assembled together, so it is not very solid, and can feel a bit wobbly at the joints. It feel more like a toy then a actual machine. 

I don't think it can be use to work on metal but wood or plastic should be ok.

Thats why I keep it for so long without using it, I just don't have confidence in it.
I bought it so you don't have to.


You can watch the boring assembly video below:

How to make a Cell Phone Stand with popsicle sticks.

All the phone stand I made before or most of them on the internet were unable to plug in the charging cable while the phone is on the stand. But this one is different. The phone is elevated on this stand, so you can plug in the charging cable while it was there.
Which make it really convenience. :-)
And it is simple and fun to build.


If you would like to build it too, pls refer to the build video below:

Thanks for Watching :-)

Material used:

  • Used pen insert
  • Paperclip
  • A button.
  • epoxy glue.
Please watch build video below:

Making a Balisong with popsicle sticks.

Balisongs are illegal in many countries, why don't make yourself one with some popsicle sticks.
This is how I make mine, please watch the making of Balisong video below.


Use this video content at your own risk.
*Please do not sharpen the blade, although its make out of wood, it might still cut your hand or somebody.
Thanks for Watching :-)

Material used:
1, normal size popsicle sticks.
2, a bigger craft stick or 2 popsicle stick glue together.
3, and paper clips.

Tools:
1, Ruler
2, pencil 
3, white glue or wood glue.
4, epoxy
5, pen knife.
6, wood file or metal file
7, small drill
8, some clamps

Compare with balisong comb trainer that I have.

Balisong part name I found from internet.

Dimension Detail below:









I am using two types of stick, their dimension as in the picture.
their thickness are different too, shorter stick is about 2mm, longer stick is about 1.5mm.

The length of the tang is about 30mm, and the knife about 110mm or shorter so it can hide in the handles.

The handle rib to make the handle stronger and also added some more weight to it.
cut it short and glue it to the handle 15mm from the bottom of handle and 20mm from top.
Chamfer the inside edge, so the knife will slot in easily.
refer photo for its locations.

So, the bottom piece is going to be 15mm.

The rib of the knife were approximate, long rib about 75mm,
short one at the tang about 9mm.

Drill hole position at the tang part.

The 6mm gap can be reduce to 5mm.
The pivot pins locations are 12mm apart. 

so that handle will open and close together without gap, because it need extra space for the sidewall when open the knife. as shown below:

Notice the side wall location when opened and when closed.
The drill hole location on individual handle when closed as above.

The side wall length is 85mm
and position it 23mm gap from the handle top. (the gap is for it to clear the tang part when knife opened)

The Tang pin is about 10mm long, can be shorter if you like. and the width is the gap between the handle.

Oh, and the drill hole size is depend on the pin (paperclip) diameter you used.
the hole just need to be a little bit bigger than the pin diameter, so it can rotate freely inside.

Thanks for watching and happy building :-)

LEGO KTM X-Bow - 31024 alternate build.


This is my original lego design base on KTM X-Bow.
I only use the parts from set 31024.
With limited parts it is very hard to imitate the curvature of the car and I have try my best to do it.
I put red stripe to the side of the body to emphasise the body line, and I think it looks better then without it.

M1911 classic pistol - papercraft

This is the papercraft that you can actually build it yourself !!

This paper model is design by Horborginc, you can download the template from link: http://hoborginc.deviantart.com/art/PM-1911-344712662
There are some basic photo instructions in the downloaded file.

Thanks to Horborginc for the design.
It is a good design and lots of effort being put in. 
however, I think this paper model is not computer designed, so some of the part doesn't fit very well,
especially where there is curvature.
Anyway, it does the job and it is free. Thanks again.

There are also many other free paper model guns template, at that webpage.
You can try to build all of them.

I am using:
180gm paper print out from a laser printer.
and white glue to glue it all together.

It has working slide, hammer, slide stop and removable magazine.

Please check out the build and review video below:



As always, Thanks for watching :-)
