The Ultimate Compliment - January 5, 2009

Hello and welcome to 2009 at 1 Million 1 Shot. Soon to come, a recap of 2008, but for now some new material.

A while ago, I built a rotational casting machine so that I could cast hollow objects. The project ended up being a success, and was a featured project on Instructables. I really had no idea what I was doing when I built the machine, and I was totally uncertain if it would even work. I was glad to see that it eventually turned out to be a positive influence not only on me but the community at large, which brings me to the point of this post.

Because I posted information on the Internet about my project, I was able to influence others that were attempting to do the same thing as myself. As a result, a much more refined and smarter rotational casting machine has been constructed, and posted onto YouTube. I received a personal note from the YouTube user who stated that my video and instructions were tremendously helpful. I think that is the ultimate compliment. As such, I'd like to share their much better video of their roto cast machine.

p.s. On a side note, I learned that when you choose to share helpful information (perhaps things realted to ideas or projects) with others online, it's important to provide good written descriptons, photos, and videos. I found that many of my videos had distracting music in it, or even the dreaded sound of me chewing gum.

That's awesome! Great looking design, and it's cool to see the power of the community come together to make it even better. Congrats.
