Nasty cut - the story behind it...

Nasty cut - the story behind it...

A friend of mine asked me if i can help him with a retrofit on his boss car... i said ok let's do this:). In the past i have done a lot of retrofits on headlights so i was pretty confident on myself regarding this task, but this one had something in particular: one of the fenders was the original one and the other one aftermarket (the shape was slightly different - the car it's an audi a4 b5).





 Basically i had to cut a lip from one fender to be able to install the new headlights and do the electrical part for both's sides (the aftermarket headlights had different kind of connectors). I know it's sounds easy to cut a lip from a fender and roll it to accept the new headlight but one moment of negligence it's enough to screw you over...

10 W Led lamp for my electronics desk

10 W Led lamp for my electronics desk

A while back i've built for myself an electronics desk where i can do all sorts of projects / store my tools and electronic parts... but something was missing: a good light source. So the topic of today's post it's a lamp for my desk. 
The parts used for this project:
- an broken lamp ( without socket for the light bulb, cable cut, etc. )
- the case from an old security camera (because the body is made from aluminium)
- a small piece of aluminium (3 mm thick)
- 10 W led , power resistor (instead of power resistor you can use an 10 W led driver), on/off switch , cable, power source etc.

Welding a small axe

Welding a small axe 

An colleague from work and a good friend of mine asked me if i can help him with a small repair job. I have asked how can i help an his reply was with one weld bead on a small axe that has one crack. I told him to bring it and i would see what i can do. After a few days he brought the axe to work and i took it home - where i have my tools.
