Ever wonder how those super tiny electronic components on circuit boards are placed so accurately? With machines of course. Industrial pick and place machines can cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Stephen Hawes is helping to make this technology more accessible by developing a much cheaper and open source pick and place called The Inde…
 
Ashley Harwood, a master turner, shares her biggest wood turning to date, a pedestal and foot for a Barolo table. Or 4 of them rather. And I want to emphasize that when I say gigantic, I’m not exaggerating, or using that word frivolously. Listen to Ashley's stories about the many safety considerations involved, what happens when a piece being turne…

One of James' most epic creations are his 7ft tall extremely robust "performance robots". These "Chappy-like" robots have many degrees of motion, really coo…

Many of Elisha’s builds are primarily out of lumber, but she incorporates metal a lot too. A perfect example is her wood and metal cable bed that combines a really smart and sturdy bed f…
 
Robert Cowan builds combat robots. He is part of the Copperhead team on the BattleBots TV show, and he also builds a lot of smaller "insect weight" bots that he competes with regularly. In this episode Robert discusses Psychotic Break V2, a beautiful carbon fiber and S7 tool steel bot that weighs only 3lbs and packs a scary amount of kinetic energy…
 
There’s a very good chance you’ve seen Jimmy DiResta's work, and if not, you’ve probably seen DiResta stickers or spray painted lettering in other maker channels. I hop on with Jimmy to talk about his Forged Bowie Knife build, why knife making is so appealing to him, and we get surprising insight into how he views the knives he makes (hint: he's no…
 
One of the recurring themes in Laura Kampf’s work is repurposing common items into something completely different. Like turning a zippo lighter into storage for bits, creating a bike sidecar out of a beer keg, or the many different objects that she has turned into BBQs. In this episode we talk about the clever design of her level jack grill and how…
 
When Matt Cremona decides to build an heirloom piece of furniture, he doesn’t just wander over to the local lumber store and pickup some lumber. That would be too easy. Matt’s an urban logger so it’s more far likely that he found a recently cut down tree in the city, hauled it home on his log trailer, sawed it on his custom bandsaw mill, dried it i…
 
I first came across Emiel’s channel last year when I was working out how to build my own miniature pinball machine. Emiel built his own machine and since then he's built other little inventions like the Oreo cookie dispenser, a DIY belt grinder, and the topic of this episode, a playing card gun that shoots cards 200km/h. We go into how Emiel create…

She shares all the steps she had to go through to do the conversion, and…
