Thanks for the input Allan. Have you checked out the tutorials in the library? There are a couple there for those of us on a low budget.
Not yet, I plan on it soon as I'm ready to commit. I have some ultra basic stuff available at Hobby Lobby. I'm not one to have a credit card, so online ordering is nixed for the time being.

Understood. BTW, it took me almost 4 years to take the plunge.

I hope to start reasonably soon. It looks like Hobby Lobby has a small kit to cast Alumilite for about 30 bucks. If I get it and test it out I'll probably be posting a review.

I could sure use a demo on spending money I don't have for equipment I don't have so I can set up a shop I don't have in a large garage I don't have. lol Actually, any demo will help me since I am just getting started.

I'm sure we can manage that John. And, that's OK if your wife is blaming ME. I'll take it for you. After all.....what are friends for?

Sounds to me like roddesigner caught the metal lathe bug! Now what am I to do? I am just about the only one in the chapter without a metal lathe! (exaggerated) Mike, I do love your ideas on the reactor and the cold fusion, I am pretty interested in that kind of thing. As far as the 28 twist mobius strip, sounds like too much work, lets keep it simple with cold fusion or building a backyard particle accelerator.

In all seriousness... Demos are kind of tough and often happen spontaneously, so if we could have some glue, some blanks, some metal, and other supplies on hand, we should be set. While we are talking about a certain pen, someone might say, "hey, how did you do that?" And that is where the demo comes in to play!
