DIY Powder Coating is CHEAP, FUN, and EASY! (Yeti Cup with Harbor Freight System)

Want a powder coated Yeti cup, but don’t want to pay $65 dollars? Get a Harbor Freight powder coating gun, a couple Ozark stainless steel cups and do it yourself instead!

We got the powder coating system on sale for $50 and bought a few cups from Wal-mart. The results were impressive. With absolutely no experience we created something that I wouldn’t hesitate to sell on Etsy. With a little practice you could become very proficient at this. Because the paint is so forgiving it’s a very good beginner DIY project too.

Model a WORKING Spring in Fusion 360! (ADVANCED TIP)

I wanted to model a working spring in Fusion 360 that you can compress and expand, but I couldn’t find any solutions online. I found a workaround that I haven’t seen anywhere else.

Basically you split the spring in half, then apply revolute joints to each of the parts. Next constrain the spring into a slider joint so it can only move up and down. Finally add motion links to each joint so they all move more naturally.

Rough Framing the Cargo Trailer Camper Conversion

We’re converting an enclosed cargo trailer so that the front half is an RV and the back half is a mobile workshop We’re going to travel the country when it’s finished helping subscribers with their DIY projects!

This week I finished framing the dividing wall and ran the rough electrical/plumbing. I ripped 2×6’s to create 1.5″ x 1.75″ studs that are thinner and lighter. I’ll be covering the walls in 1/8″ ply and the floor and ceiling in hardwood.
