Summary

Makers, get ready. This is your ultimate, must-have, tip-packed guide for taking your DIY projects to the next level—from basic wood- and metalworking skills to plugged-in fun with power tools, from cutting-edge electronics play to 3-D printing wizardry. Join Chris Hackett, Popular Science intrepid DIY columnist and star of the Science Channel’s Stuck with Hackett , on a rummage through the toolbox of yore—and a foray into the technologies of the future.

HAND TOOLS
A classic is a classic for a reason. Learn to build your own metal forge, screen-print whatever you want, swing a hammer better than your ancestors, and repurpose what Hackett calls “obtainium”—but what others might call trash—into your own mad-scientist creations.
POWER TOOLS
Discover the supreme joy that is angle-grinding, rig your own welding machine out of a junked car battery or three, and meet and master a whole host of electronic gadgets—LEDs, piezo buzzers, solar panels, and more.
ROBOTS & BEYOND
When it comes to making, there’s a whole new skillset in town. Get started with CNC milling, laser-cutting, programming microcontrollers, and 3D printing in a chapter that’s all about building what’s next.
MUCH MORE
Setting up a hackerspace, drones and space exploration tool, circuitry basics, sourcing and crowdsourcing and biotechnology- just to name a few more. You name it; it’s probably in this book.
