How Products Are Made

Coolstuff23This is my new favorite site! “How Products Are Made explains and details the manufacturing process of a wide variety of products, from daily household items to complicated electronic equipment and heavy machinery. The site provides step by step descriptions of the assembly and the manufacturing process (complemented with illustrations and diagrams) Each product also has related information such as the background, how the item works, who invented the product, raw materials that were used, product applications, by-products that are generated, possible future developments, quality control procedures, etc.” [via] Link.

    Here’s me with a recreation of one of the old Centuri “Mini-Max” kits.

  2. Memories. My friends and I were making rockets when Centuri and Estes were the two main companies (at least that I knew about). We even broke into Centuri guys and Estes guys, the way people aligned with GM vs. Ford. I was heartbroken when Centuri went under.
