I bought a drill press!

Been drilling out holes in an old camping stove. Making a stick with a weirdish layout for shooters, but will suit Virtua Fighter and Neo-Geo games too.

Trying to learn about making game input devices. Want to make some game things with dedicated interfaces.

Thought came to me that these'd be good boxes for diy synth projects too.

Gunna start keeping an eye out for them. Older ones have connections that don't match now-standard gas bottles. EBayers seem to be trying to flog them to vintage fetishists, but maybe I can find some freebies or cheap ones on Gumtree.

Hinges on this one are welded on, which was a bit of a pain when trying to secure it on the drill's table, though.

Anything but laser cut shit wood with box joints tbh. Why even use timber if you're just gunna fucking torture it.
