SitRep (Current Research)

I’m going to dump a bunch of research points here that I’ve been working on/with in the last week or so. I’m not going to try to explain connections or give details- this is meant as a raw-form dump of what I’ve gotten my fingers into. You’ll see trends, I’m sure, and outliers.

  • 3D printing a new shift knob for my car (with 10×1.25 threads)
  • Hacking the firmware of a Panasonic GH2 camera for film use
  • Finding a decent 1/4″ x 20 mount for an iPad mini
  • Reupholstering a Eames Lounge Chair (and Ottoman)
  • Arri PL Lens mount specs (and adaptors to MFT format cameras)
  • Refining my work EDC (better separation/organization of components)
  • Carving a new Lock Pick set (searching for best pick profiles)
  • Water Ram Pumps for pushing rainwater collection uphill
  • Cree LED lightbulb color temperature
  • 110V MIG welding limitations
  • Team Wikispeed car building
  • PVC Fly Fishing Rod tubes (2″)
  • Daiwa Saltiga Boat Braid (55#) sourcing local
  • Preserving formatting & printing from Google Docs
  • Limitations of macros in Google Spreadsheets
  • Sourcing 5/8″ Round Steel Tubing local

I’ll let you make what you will of that list- but I’ve made progress of a bunch of this.
