    nope, sorry it was not interesting in the least. Been making stuff from metacafe….

    @Drillbit97 – what interesting “stuff” are you making from metacafe?

  3. JPMartineau says:

    Well, I found it interesting. Perhaps the only thing that bothered me with this project is the “consumer whore” aspect of it, needing to buy a bunch of walkmans, which at 2$ each, must be made out of ground up children.

    Hey JPMartineau,

    We found used walkmans for 2 bucks… were probably considerably more in the 80s. Of course the ultimate would be to make this out of those yellow sony sports walkmans… I love the design on those!

    This was a great project, and I hope to find time for it soon. Y’know what I’d like to see? A project that uses up a dozen CRT monitors. They are piling up all over the place. Never mind two bucks a pop, people will pay you to take them.

  6. JPMartineau says:

    Oh yeah, the yellow sports Walkmans were sweet.

    I guess it’s all good if it’s ’80s surplus that would have ended up in a landfill if not used!

    Oh Bre, BTW, I made the first weekend project. The workbench. It’s a simple build, and it’s rock solid. Love it.
