In order for the "tines" on your comb to ring brightly, you must begin with spring steel. You may use a flat piece of steel and cut the teeth into it or use a long length of quality steel bar such as a metal yard rake. I used a length of sewer cleaning flat bar--cheap and very good steel. I simply cut it into 15 pieces about 3 1/2" long. You ...

The basic issue is the required power. Belt sanders are designed for aggressive removal of material. The larger the surface area that is sanded, the more power it takes. At 1/2" to 1" wide belts, the required power is low enough that small motors can handle the job. Flexible shafts can also handle that (they have limited strength). At 4" ...

You can make your own sketchbook ring binder: That way, new blank A3 pages, as well as coloured index tabs, can easily be added anywhere. You can perforate new pages yourself using a hole puncher. If your project files consist of a lot of loose or thick objects, you can also opt for a binder box.

For me having the angle helps with fatigue and body aches after I’m finished working on a piece.

I've polished about a dozen 3D printed models, some ABS, some PLA. It's possible to get a near mirror finish, very reflective with ordinary wet/dry sandpaper and also with Micromesh™. You're correct to be concerned about the low melting point of the plastic. This is why one uses a polishing material along with water, to carry away the abraded material and to ...

"Could it be used" is a different question than "would it be effective for the task". The question bullets a number of concerns about why it might not work, at least without potentially damaging the kiln. I'm not familiar enough with that equipment to address what safety interlocks it might have or the potential for damage. If those ...

You've pretty much answered your own question. The obvious parts are sufficient length of hose, a water/oil trap at the compressor and one close to you and the correct fittings to convert from the quick-release fitting on the end of the hose to the airbrush fitting. Most compressors use NPT/BSP threaded connections, so you'd need something based on that ...

You might want to look at the Levenger Circa binding system that uses a special punch and round discs to produce notebooks with removable pages. There are some clones that go by the generic name disk-binding systems.

A finger guard Finger guards should go along the trimmer's base. It's a safety feature that prevents your fingers from being chopped. A Tension Spring This prevents a guillotine paper cutter from acting like an actual guillotine. The tension spring is attached to the blade so it won't move by itself. A Blade Latch It holds the blade in place when you aren't ...
