This week the guys are talking to Scott Rumschlag; builder extraordinaire, Maker, and all around geeky guy!
Meet the Maker
Scott’s got some amazing projects that are all wonderfully documented on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/rumschlags/ You should really go and subscribe right now.
Some highlights include his expanding table & counterweighted desk. He posts a new video every week of a project he’s working on and if you’re into mechanical, electrical, and generally cool projects they don’t fail to satisfy.
Also, check out Scott’s web site; Mechanical Lumber (http://mechanicallumber.com)
What we love:
Scott loves skateboard bearings. They’re a great tool for DIY projects where you need a smoothly spinning axle, they’re cheap, easy to find, and easy for a hobbyist to work with. A set of 8 will only set you back $11! http://amzn.to/1oXTzyg
Jeff loves the Microsoft Office Lens app for his iPhone. Available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
Jacob loves John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War series. A set of six great sci-fi books that you should really check out. Start with Old Man’s War and then work your way through the series. No spoilers, but if you like good sci-fi they’re really worth checking out! http://amzn.to/1RiwUG5
