He and his bandsaw are also regulars at our World Maker Faire New York booth every year, and this past weekend we caught up at the event to see some of his on-site builds and hear about what being at Maker Faire means to him. DiResta also took a moment during filming to turn my oversized clip board into something that would fit nicely into my toolbelt, and gave it his personalized touch.
