Extreme Restorations for Seriously Dirty, Rusty, Broken Tools #restoration
Because I watch so many restoration videos, YouTube’s algorithms keep feeding me more while the level of challenge to the restorations seems to keep getting more extreme. Some of these tools, pulled out of the dump, found in the corners of abandoned buildings, pulled out of the mud, are so grotty they’re hard to look at. But what the restorers are able to do is so dramatic, I find it strangely hopeful and uplifting.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
