Wettie Backpack



In the last few weeks I've been dealing with Ventsit or ACS10 material, and I have also been surfing most weeks. The surfing usually involves a walk to the beach with wetsuit, wax, sunscreen, legrope and board.  At one stage I had a home made surfboard trailer for the trek but I abandoned that for whatever reason. 

But for now, I decided on something different, also to make the trek easier, a wetsuit backpack from the acs10. The material is light and completely immune to water, and I had a few bits spare that had been on recumbent trikes and were now a bit worse for wear.

Making it took about 2 hours and used a 26" bike tube as the strap, which is sewn  / tied to the side of the pack facing my back. I sawed off the valve on the tube before fitting it, and the hole where the valve used to be is covered by a patch. It took about 2 hours to make, and I used it today with success.

Printer Spools


Maybe this is the killer ap, putting things made with my technique from cd's on top of the printer spool thing.

Printer spool tetrahedron.

This is where the bucket shown below came from. I supersized the shredder box with a custom made wooden replacement.

Using the side of the printer spools to make different platonic solids. I don't know what for yet, but see some examples above.

Plan to use the centre of the spools to refurb and lighten this recumbent trike tailbox.

Harvesting bits from printer spools using the ex-shredder bucket.

Not much to write about, I hope the pictures tell the story. Still trying to work out what to do with the things made from the sides of printer spools.
