Description

Homemade Devices is written particularly for the adolescent or young adult who enjoys making interesting mechanical devices and gadgets. Over 40 projects are described using clear wording. Diagrams are included to assist in ease of understanding. Most of the projects take between 15 minutes and 2 hours to complete. A high priority is given to being able to complete each project without special tools and materials. Most casual do-it-yourselfers will have the needed items around the house and/or garage. The cost of each project is low. There are no kits to buy. Only low cost and no cost materials are needed. Most items are made from small pieces of wooden boards, coat hanger wire, paper, used containers, and discarded household items. A few projects require low cost items found in hardware stores. Most projects require one or two common tools such as a scissors, hacksaw, screwdriver, pliers, knife, file or drill. Most craft books describe artful or cute items to make. Homemade Devices deals mostly with items that are mechanically interesting, clever or useful. Some are best described as toys or playthings. Others are simple mechanical curiosities. Some are appealing because of their shape, form or structure. Homemade Devices is a rich resource for the tinkerer. It is an aid to anyone who wants to develop ingenuity to use the tools and materials that happen to be available. Homemade Devices will add to your appreciation and wonder about structural and mechanical curiosities. partial Table of Contents: Duct tape wallet—a wallet made from duct tape.
