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.
