If you’re interested in making things (and since you’re reading this, we’re going to assume you

If you’re interested in making things (and since you’re reading this, we’re going to assume you are), you’ve almost certainly felt a desire to make metal parts. 3D printers are great, but have a lot of drawbacks: limited material options, lack of precision, and long printing times. If you want metal parts that adhere to even moderately tight tolerances, a milling machine is your only practical option. There is, after all, a very good reason that they’re essential to manufacturing. However, it can be difficult to know where to start for the hobbyist who doesn’t have machining experience. What kind of milling machine should you get? Should you buy new or used? What the heck is 3-phase power, and can you get it? These questions, among many others, can be positively overwhelming to the uninitiated. Luckily, we — your friends at Hackaday — are here to help give you some direction. So, if you’re ready to learn, then read on! Already an expert? Leave some tips of your own in the comments! Before we get into the details of what configuration of milling machine you’ll most likely want to buy, let us first point out that we’re only going to be talking about manual milling machines in this...

Bolte Bridge safety barrier created with X-TEND mesh screens and cables

Ronstan Tensile Architecture was engaged by Lendlease Services to manufacture and supply a safety barrier system for the Bolte Bridge in Melbourne, Australia. Considered a city landmark, Bolte Bridge is the largest balanced cantilever cast in situ box girder bridge in Australia. Designed by Denton Corker Marshall and constructed by Baulderstone Hornibrook for Transurban, the bridge links Melbourne’s West Gate, Monash and Tullamarine Freeways. The bridge has two main spans of 173 metres and two side spans of 72 metres extending an additional 430 metres to the south and 4080 metres to the north. The overall bridge length of 5000 metres places it amongst the longest bridges in Australia. The brief for the safety barrier sought a system that would span approximately 550 metres along each side of the bridge where it crossed the Yarra River. The system comprised of 246 modular hot dipped galvanised frames, each filled with Ronstan Carl Stahl X-Tend stainless steel mesh of 2.0mm diameter wire formed into a 70mm mesh aperture. 3×3 Cattle Wire Mesh Panel Ronstan Tensile Architecture completed the manufacture within a very challenging period of three weeks ahead of Christmas 2017.

It may not be sneaker weather outside, but that doesn’t mean you should pass up the

It may not be sneaker weather outside, but that doesn’t mean you should pass up the opportunity to stock up on classic Converse. Right now, the brand is marking down over 85 styles to $30 with the code DEC30. That includes bold colors of the classic high-top, interesting chunky styles, and even some slip-ons. My first recommendation is to grab the Leather Converse Lucky Star. These are inspired by the classic Lucky Star style that was launched in 1969, but these are done in leather. Or opt for the Chuck Taylor All Star Seasonal Color High Top in Hyper Royal, a bold purple. The classic Chuck Taylor is a go-to of mine, to the point where I have worn through two pairs in previous years. At $30, these are the shoes that you can stash in your closet when you just need a pair of sneakers to throw on.  Grab some while they’re on sale.

Mechanical Injected & Turbocharged DX 460 cid Duramax

Greg Jones joined Babcox Media in January 2014 and currently serves as managing editor of Engine Builder magazine. When Jeremy Wagler finished high school, he didn’t head off to college or take a year to backpack across Europe. Instead, he took his talents in the diesel/automotive industry and turned them into an immediate career. At just 19 years old, Wagler opened an automotive repair shop, which he ran for 10 years before he started to buy up CNC equipment to begin developing engine parts. It wasn’t long before he developed an aftermarket Duramax cylinder head, and Wagler Competition Products was born. Opened in 2012, Wagler Competition Products (WCP) located in Odon, IN, is a full machine shop specializing in diesel work with a focus on the Duramax engine. WCP features seven Haas machines, two Doosans, a Centroid for 5-axis porting, a Sunnen engine and line hone with Rottler head equipment, and a CBN mill. WCP also does Cummins work and makes parts like billet cylinder heads, cams and roller rockers. A few years ago, Wagler also bought out R&R Connecting Rods in Illinois in order to start making his own connecting rods for diesel applications and aluminum rods for the D...

Delhi police uses facial recognition software to identify ‘habitual protesters’ and ‘rowdy elements’ at CAA-NRC protests Close

After the Uttar Pradesh government decided to identify protestors and seal their properties to reimburse losses, the Delhi police have resorted to using the Automated Facial Recognition System (AFRS) software to identify CAA and NRC protestors. The police used the software during various protests to screen the crowd at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally held at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi. The police then ran the footage through the software to identify “law and order suspects.” The police had acquired the AFRS software in early March 2018 to find and found boys and girls by matching photos. The software has only been used thrice, twice for the Independence parade and once during the Republic day protest, reported The Indian Express. According to the paper’s sources, the Delhi police has created a database of almost 1.5 lakh “history-sheeters” for routine crime investigation. The Delhi Police has been filming the CAA and NRC protests for some time now. The footage acquired are now being used to extract ‘identifiable faces’. The extracted faces will then be manually screened to pick out ‘habitual protesters’ and ‘rowdy elements’. The first use of ‘selected protestors’ was used at P...

The past decade has undoubtedly been a great one for the pet industry. Over the past

The past decade has undoubtedly been a great one for the pet industry. Over the past 10 years, annual pet-related spending has risen more than 55 percent, growing from just over $48 billion in 2010 to what is expected to be more than $75 billion in 2019, according to the American Pet Products Association. Much of this success has, of course, been the result of the ongoing humanization trend, which sees pet owners increasingly treat their pets as full-fledged family members of the family. However, the important role that product innovation has played in making pet ownership easier and more fulfilling than ever should not be underestimated. It is with this in mind that Pet Business honors the best and brightest products launched in the pet care category with its annual Industry Recognition Awards. The winners are selected by the Pet Business editors after scouring the industry for the most exciting and functional products on the market, as well as best-in-class merchandising displays, packaging designs, websites and charitable efforts.      And the 2019 Industry Recognition Award winners are… p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; line-height: 13.0px; font: 64.5px Baskerville} p.p...

Tobacco Testing Market revenue is mounting with a large consumer base coupled with the increased focus of governments on national tobacco-testing laboratories

Now-a-days, science has been applied in a thoughtful way to obtain a fruitful result. Currently, the Health Ministry is anticipating to accelerate tobacco control measures. So, this is highlighting the necessity of testing, which identifies the defective tobacco end-products. Moreover, tobacco testing assists to upgrade the quality of tobacco product analysis by underlining the loopholes within the product and requirements for further modification in the product range. The tobacco industry contribution is playing a vital role in the economies of many countries all over the world. The continuous demand for tobacco products is boosting the revenue of this industry each year. On the other hand, frequent entry of new players, regional regulatory pressures, and an increase in the number of alternatives to combustible products are influencing the tobacco product manufacturer’s presence in the tobacco testing marketplace. For instance, a regulatory pressure of the government, ‘cigarette and bidi manufacturers have to declare tar and nicotine content on their packets, which is implemented as a part of the process in the tobacco testing laboratories. To excel in this tough co...

Smart art: The Nanoleaf Aurora triangular lighting system is really neat

I have to admit that I’m lagging behind with lighting technology at my house. As someone who hasn’t yet even finished replacing my incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs with LEDs, smart lighting and the concept of “lights as art” has never entered my mind. Of course, I divulged none of this when I accepted an offer to review the $200 Nanoleaf Aurora—a modern, Wi-Fi-controlled, artsy LED-light set. And I’m glad I spent the time getting to know the system. As it turns out, you don’t have to be a cutting-edge smart home guru to appreciate good connected lighting. Nanoleaf’s Aurora system is built around a number of linked LED light panels. Each panel is an equilateral triangle measuring about 9-3/4” (250mm) per side, with a thickness of 5/16” (8mm). An outer lens does a super job of diffusing the light from the LED sources within. This results in each panel appearing as a single, homogeneous, glowing light source. The system can produce more than 16 million different colors. Your initial options for creativity relate to how you join multiple panels together. Sockets molded into the midpoint of each side can accept panel connectors the size of postage stamps. These connec...
