We’re launching a new column here on Make: Online called Ask MAKE. The idea is pretty simple: you write in questions, and we answer them! It can be about anything from electronics to recycling to questions about the magazine or Make: Online. Ask us anything about everything we usually cover in print and online.

And you can ask us in whatever medium you’d like, too. Email me at, send us an @ reply or DM on Twitter, submit a page on your site highlighting the problem, record a video, send a carrier pigeon, whatever floats your boat. We’ll answer your questions right here, every Thursday. Oh, and if you have a craft-related question, check out our sister column on Craftzine, Ask CRAFT.
