Big Blue Saw's Scorching Summer Sale: July 12-14

Big Blue Saw's next sale is coming up soon, and we hope you'll take advantage of the great savings.

We are discounting parts made form two of our most popular materials: 0.1 inch thick aluminum 6061 and 0.236 inch thick clear acrylic plastic. During the sale, setup charges will be drastically reduced so that you can get great savings on small orders. For instance, the medicine cabinet shelf which was featured recently is normally $24.00, but during the sale will cost only $18.10, a 25% savings. You can save even more on aluminum parts: our "butterfly" example part will cost only $8.10 for a single part, a 90% savings off the regular cost!

Just place your order online from Monday, July 12, 2010 through Wednesday, July 14, 2010 to receive the discounted price.

Intertia Labs celebrates July 4 with giant flamethrower

Image

Now this is how you celebrate Independence Day. This is a "hydro-pneumatic flamethrower" from the folks at Intertia Labs. They're perhaps best known for their fighting robots, as seen on BattleBots.

(The video has some potentially offensive expressions of astonishment from the spectators, so turn the sound down first if you're at work.)

Their YouTube channel has more information, including videos with build details.

A useful medicine cabinet organizer

Big Blue Saw isn't just useful for complex projects or elaborate crafts, it's great for simple things, too. Take this medicine cabinet organizer, for example.

Here's a photo of the medicine cabinet before the new organizer was in place.

As you can see, it's a bit messy. The big problem is that the small stuff is eating up valuable space on the bottom shelf. And there's a large amount of unused vertical space as well. This is nothing that the correct application of laser energy (and some acrylic stock) can't fix.

Here's the design for the shelf in the Big Blue Saw Designer.

After it's put in place, here's the result: an organized medicine cabinet, with everything easily accessible.
