When you get smashed at carp fishing by someone standing 1m from you using advanced techniques it's time to up your game. Heres a banjo feeder I knocked up the other day:

store bought version:

ghetto version:
bnjo2.jpg
-4mm pneumatic hose (biro tube would do), milk lid, squashed ball sinker and a couple of rivets. The top section of the milk bottle with another lid on it will be used as the mould to squash my secret herbs & spices burley mix into the feeder. Atleast when they are lost i won't be cursing as much as if i had imported from carp motherland.

It looks like "the Method" only smaller -

That is a genius bit of kit - I was about to ask if its weighted to fall bait side up - then I went back and had a look at the pic - Nice one JB.

heres a very dodgy 12mm al tube bender I knocked up to make a net frame. considering it was going to be used once, it's not pretty but it worked ok. Actually got two uses out of it, a short handle kayak net and made the old man a dip net that doesnt bend when dragging through weed.

A pulley wheel would have been better but beggars cant be choosers. fill the tube with some fine paving sand to prevent the tube from creasing. I did cheat by drawing up the net in autocad and printing to scale to use as a template for the bend angles (could use another net for same effect). mark the finish points on the board, then bend the other side of the frame to the same lines to get a even sided net.

.....or if you know a plumber borrow their tube bender and save yourself some hassle.

Cant argue with the results - Nice one - I'm pretty good on "Microsoft Paint" so "AutoCAD" should be a piece of piss to master But just in case it takes more than half an hour...........I found this fella on Ebay - claims to be able to handle aluminium where alot of the competition is only brave enough to claim copper bending capabilities

my bro-in-law has one of those benders but I forged ahead regardless.
you only need to know the basics autocad and it will open up a whole new world of diy projects - drawing things to scale makes life a lot easier - you can find kickass copies if you know what I mean . i would go for an earlier version like 2004 that doesnt have so many bells and whistles.

it means you can send stuff off to laser cutters as well....

Dunno either mate, but you could probably use it as a rudder on a kayak.

When I saw it - I was thinking it was some sort of "flick knife" for a bloke who'd had his arm bitten off at the elbow - but a rudder makes more sense

Given the chance - I'll hijack any thread and drop an innovating bomb on it

But you're right - That thread needs an update - I'll get on it soon!
The time has come for an update.

The original intent of this thread was to keep all my stuff in one spot but its been spilling over into other threads recently.

So I'll just be covering old ground - nothing new to see here

I recently dipped my toes into the aquarium game and found there was plenty of scope for innovating.

My first problem was - the tank I found on the side of the road was too big and heavy for the top of the fridge

to my delight - even the smallest hurdle would require some expert knowledge of road side trash. (A junk heap out the front of a block of flats in one of Melbourne more affluent suburbs was the perfect place to search)

The purple foam underlay took 2 days of searching but the wait was worth it

hurdles like the tank leaking, took a bit more stuffing around. But improvised tools were used at every opportunity

I took a little longer than I'd like to admitt to realise that rocks arent rocks when it comes to tank decoration.

My original rock scapes leached fine sediment into the tank and made it cloudy
