Our pal Datamancer has a new blog up. He’s hoping to keep a regular digital diary of his projects. Given all of the cool stuff he’s always working on, let’s hope he keeps it up. Above are two picks from a hobby furnace he’s building, built around the Lionel’s Lab HobbyMelter kit.

(Jake von Slatt has also been working on a similar furnace, from scratch. You can see his progress so far here and here.)

    Thanks for the post, Gareth! I definitely think the blog will be an easier way to keep running worklogs of projects. The static html site will still have all the projects listed, but I’ll put the “making-of”s on the blog so they’re all searchable and whatnot.
