    Episode 71: Home Made Passive Mixer and Rocket Fin Jig

    Episode 71: Home Made Passive Mixer and Rocket Fin Jig

    I've taken on a few projects at home during COVID-19 "Stay at Home." First up is a "Passive" Mixer. Meaning, it needs no power and what comes in must come out! Second, is a model rocket fin jig. This thing helps me glue the fins on the rocket so the thing will hopefully fly straight when it launches.


    Here is the best part. I will also put this episode on YouTube so you can see these two projects.

    Ubiquiti Unifi Dream Machine Review - Reviewing the UDM! That and some more Unifi news and discussion.

    I totally forgot the Pro has a 10g SFP port. That's pretty important in this comparison!

Reset -

McCabe is at his best. This podcast provides a broader spectrum of technology than his HomeServerShow. Enjoyable, interesting and information. Keep it going.

Great tech podcast

If you stop saying "five point eight", I'll change this to five stars! Wifi bands are typically 2.4 and 5 GHz.

Finding his stride

I was a 100% regular listener to Dave McCabe's Homeservershow podcast and was saddened when it was ended. This is his newest endeavour into podcasts. It has the same easy-to-listen to voice of Dave McCabe on it. It has the same informed viewpoint and sense of sharing and community. After 15 episodes I can say that Dave appears to be settling in to a nice mix of solo comments and guests. Definitely worth a listen.
