Making a Film Slate

Organizing many video and audio sources can be a challenge, one that is solved by using a film slate. In this video I show how to make a simple slate with 3D printing and the materials I have on hand.

How to use a film slate:

Build requirements:
3 1/6 x 1 1/4 screws, nuts, and washers
6 mm (1/4 “) plywood 200x210mm
Self adhesive whiteboard material (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06ZZDZWLS)

Patreon account has been shuttered

Thank you to the supporters who have helped me through Patreon!

With the pandemic still ongoing, I’m unable to fly this year. This has slowed the pace of my builds and with it my videos. To be honest, I feel guilty taking your money. So I’ve retired the account indefinitely.

I’m still building, and still shooting video, so you will continue to see new updates. I’ll just do them at my own pace as I have something interesting to support.

Shop Updates

Rocket projects are progressing at a furious pace, but there are no videos to show yet. Since a lot of time has been spent getting my rocket shop up to speed, I thought I’d show you a bit of what’s been happening to get the shop ready for rocket building.
