Just bought myself a sweet Italian road racing bike from Mister Jalopy!
I have roughly one zillion screwdrivers at my disposal. I've got a few sets of general purpose screwdrivers, many small jewelers and electronics screwdrivers, and even some nice ones attached to Swiss Army knives and Leatherman multi-tools. But the one I use most for servicing small electronics when I've wandered away from my workshop is my Technician's Pocket Screwdriver (
I’m also making this nog from Jeffery Morgenthaler:
Our tequila-sherry egg nog at Clyde Common has been so overwhelmingly popular that I figured I’d share the recipe here. It’s based on my original egg nog recipe from years back, just slightly modified to incorporate the lower-alcohol sherry into the mix.
Añejo Tequila and Amontillado Sherry Egg Nog
12 large eggs
18 oz (by volume) granulated sugar (~2 1/4 cups)
3 tsp freshly-grated nutmeg
12 oz anejo tequila (533 ml. or a little under 3/4 of a bottle)
15 oz Amontillado sherry (443 ml. or a bit over 1/2 a bottle)
36 oz whole milk (about 2 1/4 pints)
24 oz heavy cream (1 1/2 pints)
In a blender or stand mixer on low speed, beat eggs until smooth. Slowly add nutmeg, and sugar until incorporated and dissolved. Slowly add sherry, tequila, milk and cream. Refrigerate overnight and serve in small chilled cups. Dust with fresh nutmeg before serving.
Makes one gallon.
Here is a cross-post from MAKE:
My holiday picks this year run a wide range of things I love to geek out on — from maker fashion to music makers, from machine shop memberships to steam engines, from beverage kits to time keepers. I hope this guide will help you find that perfect something for someone on your list. Or, maybe a little something for yourself!
This super quick hexapod uses Dynamixl servos and the Arduino-compatible ArbotiX micro controller to deliver open source arachnid robotic fun. Sure, this isn’t the cheapest thing on the list, but think of the wow factor!

I carried a Spyderco Dragonfly with me for over a decade, using it nearly every day, until I recently misplaced it. This slightly larger model, the Delica, with its quick-deploying combination blade looks like it would make a perfect replacement.

Noisy little fellow
This is a fun kit to build, and an even funner kit to play with. Repatch the jumper wires to adjust the drones and noise loops of this alien synthesizer critter.
