I made a thien seperator out of a 4 gallon chemical bucket, it saves my shop vacuum from a hard life. I followed the instructions on the Internet, and used donor parts of the vacuum that came before the replacement. It isnt pretty, but it is very handy.

Here is the CNC Mill that I built following the Joe's 4x4 CNC plans (I think this is a different Joe than the Press).

Also a few things i have made with it.

The bracket in the back was broken so I made a new one out of HDPE.

Here is one on "Tools I fixed"

Bought this Wilton vice for $10 at a garage sale because the retainer that keeps the screw from screwing out of the jaw was missing.

I designed one and cut it out of HPPE on my CNC; works like a champ!
