Re: Omni-Directional BoomBox

I finished up the new reflector today and it works great! There is a noticeable improvement in the clarity of the sound especially in the highs. The treble seems less harsh and midrange much more clear. It almost gives it a more open and smooth sound if that makes sense. I was so excited building it...

Re: Omni-Directional BoomBox

It's been quite a while since I have done anything with this so I decided to finally do some revisions on some things. Firstly, I replaced one of the BMR drivers with a Dayton Audio 3" reference driver which has a richer midrange. I felt the BMR's were a bit lacking in the lower mids. I also de...

Workstation Desktop Build

Since I started college, I have primarily used my two laptops for work. They have worked exceptionally well however, as my workloads become larger, programs become more demanding, and time becomes more of a premium, I realized I need something a bit quicker and more powerful. My previous desktop fro...

Creating Tracks in Cubase with Cinematic Strings

I recently bought cinematic strings, a virtual instrument I'm using with Cubase, and I have been extremely impressed with the sounds I have been able to get out of it! My previous experience with string VST instruments is fairly limited, but I have a very picky ear for cinematic sounds. Here is a sa...

Re: Wire Spool Dispenser

Hi...great work you did. Its looking really helpful, because spools of wires are really a problem. I liked your idea to add vertical rods, here atleast you can wrap the small spools. Thanks! Yes, it was always a pain to both store and use these spools without making a mess. This was such a simple p...

Re: Boosted Board Repair Loose Motor Mount

Thanks so much for creating this howto. I've had my board for 4500 miles and have had their motor mounts replaced by Boosted before, but your process brought the board back to that "just like new" feeling once again. Sure thing! Yeah, I have had my board in twice for that same thing. This...

Re: Building the Cavedioboard

Those motors are definitely bldc motors and can easily be driven with the VESC motor controller. They are not sensored so you will have to give the board a small push before engaging the motors for smooth startup.
Cheers!

Aluminum Foundry

Since I was 14, I wanted to build a foundry and cast my own parts. It was the cheapest and most viable way for me to make metal parts. I recently just put together a very simple and inexpensive foundry from bricks around my yard and a propane weed burner. It works surprisingly well and I have been a...

Server Drive Failure

Last week we had a hard drive fail in the main datastore RAID array. The server was taken offline until a replacement drive came in. Since the array was configured as a RAID 1 virtual drive, there was no data loss, only downtime.
