Dinosaurs and Robots Dispatch: A Digital mag from Mark Frauenfelder & Mister Jalopy

Here’s a new digital zine from some familiar folks! Mark Frauenfelder & Mister Jalopy. Mr. J writes –

The first issue of Dispatch is a handy heyday magazine of projects, techniques and tools loosely arranged around the idea of transport.

Besides building the projects and doing the work, I was also the sole designer, photographer, writer and editor. It was a lot of effort. Maybe 60 hours as it required a lot of starting from scratch. But, it was great fun and the next one will be less onerous as I have set some standards for how I want to convey information.

  1. As a Journeyman Electrician, I’ve used that style, and I much prefer the Klein Tools model 1010 wire strippers. They are MUCH better at stripping wire! (about the same as for crimping: adequate) They have a better cutting surface,and have pliers on the tip, instead of the ineffective cutter. I know it’s just personal preference, but I just hate it when people say “You should have one of these tools!” and then show the kind that I hate.

  2. Those Klein strippers are a nice looking tool! For pure wirestripping deliciousness, I like a tool like this:


    But the one I featured in the Dispatch is my favorite in a desert-island, one-tool-in-the-glove-box way.

    Due to issues with Mediafire hosting, I moved Dispatch to archive.org
