    I’d be careful with that color scheme so close to SF. your neighbors might get the wrong idea. πŸ˜‰

      I originally deleted my post because I didn’t want Steve’s page to become a battleground, but funny enough I was looking at old posts and this same guy was making a joke out of Craftsman tools and those who use them. Which made me realize this guy might be a bit of a tool himself. So I am reposting.

      Maybe Steve doesn’t care if people get the wrong idea. Or maybe he (gasp) has friends and neighbors he is trying to support. I get it, you are trying to make a joke. It would be funny if it were at least clever, but unfortunately it is neither clever nor funny. Instead it just makes you seem like a boob.

      Glad to see you finally grew a pair big enough to say what’s on your mind.

    It’s 5.00am here, family asleep, playing the video with my earphones in. That music’s terrific.

    Also useful as a science project to help students understand the DNA molecule.

    Sticks could get painted different colors to represent the A, C, G, and T nucleic acids.

    Steve? You should build another one that is a replica of your entire genome.

    Let’s see. Around 3.2 billion base pairs in the human genome. 3/4″ thick stick for each base pair.
    Your own personal model of your own genome would be 37878.78 miles tall.

    I think you’re gonna need a higher hook in your shop. Might want to make it a tad stronger too.

    steve, love the wind spinner plan. one change I made and found it works really nicely. instead of using a coupling to attach the eyebolt, I found someone online that suggesting drilling a 1/8″ hole through the nut and rod at the top then attaching a key ring through the hole. then just using a swivel keychain to hook to the key ring. seems to work great so far. keep the videos coming.

    I made one of these, but I think a few of my holes were off-center. Is there any way to “balance” it?

      If you cut the boards to length after you drill the holes, you can center the length on each hole, thus ensuring balance.
      If you wait to cut the length until it’s fastened together just before you paint, and then use a jigsaw, you can smooth out the jagged look of the edge, too. That would take a jig to ensure you cut both sides identical.
      For a jig, you could cut out the shape you want on a larger piece of board, then use that as a pattern to cut the spinner. The pattern would have a straight edge you line up along the holes. Flip the spinner over to cut the other half identically.
