ChuckC put his woodworking skills to no good use when he scratch built his own Useless Machine.
As you can see in the photo, the case was made from a single solid piece of wood (maple I believe).
Note only did he craft a sweet case, he also built the electronics from scratch too, modding a servo and wiring it up like the original Useless Machine.
Even though we are selling kits and fully soldered machines, I still want to encourage people to scratch build the machine. This was how the whole thing started out, a open-source, DIY project that is fun, educational, and entertaining.
If you have trouble sourcing the parts listed in the instructions, then consider purchasing an Electronics Parts Kit from us. It has all the electronic parts you need to build the Useless Machine.
