Make Projects – Volume 12

Make Projects – Volume 12

In each volume of MAKE we have “major projects” these project pages are meaty step-by-step articles with start-to-finish photos, precise instructions and how-to learning that can range from making a VCR cat feeder to ariel kite photography. In MAKE volume 12 the projects are:

Super Tritone Shop Whistle by William Gurstelle. This jazzy, compressed-air-powered whistle sounds a mighty blast. Page 88

Solar Xylophone by Rory Nugent. Solarengine circuits trigger hammers to strike pentatonic chimes. Page 98

Kinetic Remote Control by Dhananjay V. Gadre. Shake batteries out of the picture with this muscle-powered remote. Page 108

20-Watt Solar Panel by Parker Jardine. With a few solar-cells and a plastic case, you can utilize the sun’s energy to power anything from a light bulb to your entire house. Part 2 of this article will appear in MAKE, Volume 14. Page 158
