    #3 8 days ago

    That’s incredible! I was more excited and impressed watching that, than when I’m watching the new Stern release video.

    I hope Dead Flip can make a stream! Hehe. Would be awesome!!

    I’d probably slap save too hard and wonder why I feel a bunch of plastic pieces around my ankle.

    In case you weren't aware, the OP is the creator of Pinduino which is why I made the comment.

    I can not imagine how many hours would have gone into design then build. Amazing!!

    He stated about 400. That’s about 399 hours more than modern Sterns

    No I haven’t but that’s pretty cool! I love stuff like that. Reminds me of a little cafe in Vermont that had a system like that to take oranges from the kitchen up and around the whole cafe ceiling and into a juicer.

    I thought the plane I made with my kid was pretty cool. Not so much anymore.

    But seriously, that machine is amazing!

    Sofa King Killer!
    I'd put down a deposit right now for a NIB. And I haven't owned a machine built after 1995!
    Looove this thing so much!

    #26 4 days ago

    Wow just wow! Just as impressed with this as I am with any ‘standard’ homebrew .. this things insane!

    It boggles my mind with a) the creativity of people, b) the passion and drive of these individuals and c) the obvious absence of any family or work life which means you are an independently wealthy mad scientist type, maybe own your own island? d) I wish I could what you do.

    This is the person who made this machine!

    Incredible work. Would love to know what inspired you to create this, what ideas you tried that didn't work out, and some of the more interesting design challenges you faced when putting it all together!

    frippertron haha I’m actually just a recent graduate with a Mechanical Engineering degree, and I had a lot of downtime living at home during quarantine and applying for jobs. I’m not independently wealthy, but I did recently accept a job offer at Lockheed Martin! I also have only 3 private islands.
