I disagree. The sky is definitely NOT the limit!

An interplanetary nuclear missile would be an impressive summer project wouldn't it? :wink:

shaw guys thanks for the great response.

About GTA, yeah, i love modding the speeds. My favourite is definitely the motorbike 600cc. I have only managed to get it into 5th once.

Otherwise, all sick ideas, but i have pretty much no money. Im liking the hovercraft though.
At the moment Im rebuilding the tattoo machine so instead of using a motor and cam system, im using electromagnets (like a real tattoo machine). I'll put up a couple of plans some time.

So yeah, any more suggestions are more than welcome!

P.S. i have done a small tattoo on my wrist of a peace sign, which turned out well, but i would definitely not do any big pieces with a homemdae machine :shock:

P.P.S. interestingly enough, I have also just finished building a small sound system. It uses an interesting bass dynamic which includes a tube from the inverted speaker in a normal box. This gives it a very nice sound. But i would also like to look into the building of a subwoofer, as soon as I google what exactly it is :oops:

I can't believe I watched a whole clip of four lawnmowers going round and round and round a small circular grass track for two and a half minutes :shock:

It's a lot more fun to drive one than to watch one, they go about 50 MPH. :twisted:

Subwoofers are a special kind of speaker designed for very low-frequency sounds. My dad just got a new 300v part so now it's really sweet. It's the kind of speaker that shakes the ground :twisted: :D
