They're more similar than you think. They both have their engines in the rear and both were originally designed by Nazis. Just two branches on the same tree!

Happy New Year!

We have an area called Boksburg (box-berg) that the guys there with their Ford Cortinas and Toyota Corollas, will swear that their cars make that kind of Horsepower (111,744,000 hp) ... Generally followed by the same cloud of Smoke...

Hey Jack.

Slider looks great.

Not sure if you've seen this, but I followed the link to Frank Howarth's videos from the front page of GarageJournal a few weeks ago, and found that he's also built a camera slider recently...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyE8_X951eI

It's not motorised, so it's a bit different to yours, but interesting nonetheless.

Default Re: The 12-Gauge Garage

It's funny you should mention that. Last night, I did a search on 'shop tour' on YouTube to get an idea of how other people shot these things. What I learned was that they generally just have someone walk behind them with a camera while they talk about the equipment in their shops.

But one of the videos was Frank Howarth's 'The Woodshed Tour,' which at least used a tripod. But that led me to his video list, and I actually saved (emailed it to myself) his video about making the dolly. I'm surprised he didn't come up with a way to control its movement. But I'm probably going to steal some of the shots he came up with for my project.

He's got a pretty great wood shop.

You could get one of those drones that follows you around taking video of everything you do...

Gosh, Frank Howarth is everywhere. I've been following him for about a year. Never even saw the link here on the site. Small world I suppose.

I just watch several of Frank Howath's video last week too. His special effects is an interesting and useful way to show a project build. Look forward to what you come up with Jack.

Since Frank's video on the front page I've seen many videos at Youtube and there's one simularity. Most of the woodworking vid's use timelapse, different angles and all these funny noises. It's like all those woodworkers use the same workflow (set up camera gear - work on piece of wood - editing a lot afterwards on the video). I'm hooked and Frank does it best!

Jack -

Why don't you just ask Cassar to pull out the SteadiCam out for old time's sake... I bet he'd love to do a "Cribs" shot!

Here's something I forgot was coming.

The UK magazine Classic Porsche did an article about my car in this month's issue. There's even a garage shot included.

Ok, I get it, instead of just reading it and then putting it back ,I'll actually buy it this month.
i know you've been told before, but Sir you really do have the coolest garage.
Just my humble opinion.

Steve.

Yes, Global for sure.

This Internet thing does make the world smaller, but getting into print is pretty cool too.

Fantastic garage which gives desire to work, has spent many hours on your videos, website and forum thread. The shed that you built outside is great, very many smart and small footprint solutions in garage. Keep up the good work on the car and garage

Great article but your pictures put the professional magazine picture to shame.

Jack did you ever think that your Workshop... and not your Writing Career, would be the thing to take you global in the way it has? I think its great... I used to read tuner car magazines growing up always thinking... One day Ill put together a car that has the qualities to be a feature article. I've outgrown that somewhat now... but I never thought a humble workshop could ever do the same... Congrats. Well done... Keep up the inspiring awesome!!!

Default Structural Engineering: Where does this fail first?

This only has to bear about 1,200 pounds for about half an hour. It won't be a dynamic load, and if it failed no one would be endangered. 3" screw from both directions at every juncture.



But I'm curious about where its weak points are, from a design point of view.
