So I'm 80% through the construction and am just waiting for a new radial drill, as you do.
Work on the limitless power has reached a standstill. I just can't seem to get past weaning myself off batteries and onto fusion (or is it fission?).
The bolts are aged by sticking them in acid and peroxide and chucking in a piece of copper tubing. Jury's out as to whether I should copper plate them first and then give them an acid wash, or just throw all the chemicals and metals in together.
I consulted a man who nearly finished his chemistry PhD and he said that he hadn't done chemistry for so long that he really couldn't remember.
Following the Trophy debacle, I've been asked to make an arc reactor for a guy at work.
I'm going for the steam punk angle, but I'm a little concerned about his reaction when he learns that it can't produce limitless energy and actually runs off 4xAAs.
