The Shed 57, October–November 2014

 Our project this issue is a guide to making an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) for searching underwater for boat wrecks etc. In Part IV of our basic cabinetry series, we walk you through making and fitting a dovetailed drawer before in Part IV of our basics of welding aluminium series, we show you how to weld. Stu Lees gets all tidy in his shed with a useful wooden phone and tablet charging station step by step guide before heading to Oamaru to meet Bill Blair whose modern woodworking skills with this ancient craft are a joy to behold. Our mechanics feature this month is how to gear up to make an Orrery clock and our project this issue is a guide to refurbishing an older drill press. We show readers how to use an oscilloscope in our electronics section and Roger Lacey shows us how to encourage kids with science and technology.
