I’m a big fan of Bob and his YouTube channel, I Like To Make Stuff, the website, and his mindset is similar to mine: make stuff and share it. Bob was kind enough to take a few moments to go over some tools and techniques he uses to make stuff.
I like how Bob makes projects approachable and with that ‘you can do it’ theme. With about 700k subscribers presently, I think lots of other people do too. His projects are kinda eclectic, sorta like GardenFork, recent ones include a water ballon cannon and a homemade arcade game. Not bad.
We first touch on welding equipment, and whether one should buy a mig welder or a flux core welder to start. I have a flux core welder, which is less expensive, but it has limitations.
We move on to using micro controllers like the arduino and raspberry pi, which is on my to do list.
Bob likes to use Trello as a task management app, and we talk about that as well. We finish with our mutual agreement on how the web can be a place for good stuff to happen.
