The Prepared.


Hello from the Bay Area! Eric here, stepping in for Spencer this week as he embarks on a new, exciting journey. This is the third time I've had the opportunity to guest-edit The Prepared, and look forward to many more. I've modified the categories a bit this time around, and welcome any feedback you have. Enjoy.


Making & Manufacturing.

  • Circuit design software EAGLE is moving to a subscription pricing model ($15 per month or $100 per year). 
  • A video tour of one of Proto Labs manufacturing facilities. So many Haas machines! I'll admit, I have not used Proto Labs for quoting or production before, but this walkthrough is fairly impressive.  


  • A twitter account dedicated to sharing GIFs of Woodworking Joinery.
  • A few weeks ago, Spencer shared some information about Ikea's new Wedge Dowel. Check out this behind-the-scenes video, and head to the 1:55 mark for a look at an impressive, enclosed CNC line.


Other. And.

Love, Eric.

p.s. - What's your favorite hand tool? Share it with me! I've been loving these lately.
