I check in with Jeremy's channel about once a week... his knowledge, imagination and skills are pretty impressive, not to mention his dedication. I hope he's got his shop relocation worked out.
P.S. Your last name being Tenorman, does "s." stand for Sax?

Permies.com is a "hands-on" bunch of people, doing most of everything themselves (DIY). Sure there are junky things for sale that are of little use or will soon break, but many a gadget — factory produced or homemade — can be helpful and a time saver... and without being costly, can just make tasks easier.
I've come across a number of posts here about small-investment things you can buy that are useful. But there are some amazing, independent gadget designers and makers on our planet, a whole lot of them in what we call the Third World. I don't think I'm in their league, but I do sometimes make things that are useful to me. And maybe worth showing, since someone else could make them too (or improve on them).
I want to take a few pictures. And I'm hoping to post in the Gear forum, but maybe also Homesteading and elsewhere.
