I'd love to see the PVC one, I've always like tubes. I'm guessing it was all electric?

I actually won the plumbers challenge with it. I made the pickup out of the stator assembly for a hand power drill that had a bad armature.

Yeah, too cold here,.,. I built the first 70 at the kitchen table,.,. My daughter hated it ,.,. I built the next 70 in my lap,.,. Getting too old to build many more on the floor,.,. LOL

Been working off a bar stool next to the workbench. It's the perfect height to work out of my chair. But mostly its because my workbench is to cluttered to do anything on it.

The problem with working at the kitchen table is this:

thats funny, I've seen on the net somewhere

smarty pants

Those temps would get me going, not stopping, single digit lows here for the next 8 days and my hot water and part of my cold pipes froze, old 1900 house

I've had as many as 600 boxes on the shelf.  I'm at a 4 year low of 110.  You're biggest problem with be deciding which one to build next.  Hint... don't save that special box for when you get good enough.  Do your best with the best you have.  There will always be special boxes.... Enjoy, Wichita Sam

Forget about stopping,ma man.5 years ago,I saw Paul McCartney play a Matty Baratto Cbg Reso  with Dave Grohl. I've been cuckoo for cocoa puffs ever since .I now have 35 Cbgs and about 15 other assorted laps and such.. I finally stopped collecting parts,pups and boxes and am now expanding my shop to accommodate it all... Good luck with that...
