The Shed 41, February–March 2012

 In Issue 41 of The Shed, we make a trip to the Awhitu Peninsula south of Auckland to meet inventor Terry Roycroft and get a demonstration of his Sealander, a land and water car. We have Part I of our three-part series on how to get the best from your milling machine then John Craig shows us how to make some leather Jandals. Unitec shows how its students are fighting cheap furniture imports by joining their furniture and cabinet making courses and we showcase the laser cutting skills of Westlake Girls High School. Our Eco adviser gives advice on how to reduce water use and cost and Vik Olliver promotes the laser cutting skills of Pokeno in Wellington. Richard Panting gives two mitre saws a test run (the Festool Kapex and the Bosch GCM 12 GDL Axial-Glide) and Jude explains to us the new technology that is brushless motors on power tools. In our woodworking feature David Blackwell creates a drill press table and we some basic advice on the new Arduino revolution that is occuring. Our Shed of the Month is blacksmiths, Ian Nielsen and Sons of Penrose Auckland and finally we admire the incredible model-making skills of Young C Park of Honolulu.
