I bought a great set of vintage Pioneer SE-30 headphones at a yardsale for $1 (yay!) and decided to build this 1/4″ to 1/8″ adapter so I could plug them into my computer.
I really enjoy Jack Conte‘s music, creative video editing, and now, his behind-the-scenes look at the making of his latest video, Pedals. Please check out the video itself, and then enjoy his enthusiastic making-of video. Jack has maker skills!
I just got this excellent staple gun at a yard sale for 50 cents. Made in Chicago, patents are from 19030s and 40s, haven’t researched it yet. Love the cast grip and cylindrical spring tube up front.
We just got this excellent folding schoolhouse bench/desk at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It’ll be going inside the house, and I’m considering screwing it into the floor rather than mounting it on a finished piece of wood (to replace the 2x4s).
Not sure about its history (seller had gotten it at an estate sale). The iron legs have this to say:
No 1 PAT FEB 3 1868 FEB 20 1872
If you have any guesses at its origin, I’d love to know more.
