07 Dec 13 World’s First Roast-Grind-Brew Coffee Machine: Bonaverde revolution is brewing!


You can call it the world very first real Bean to Cup coffee machine or if preferred, Farmer to Consumer, but the new Bonaverde coffee maker showcases some innovative German engineering and design, and is the first coffee machine that roasts, grinds and brews. Yes, it does roast raw, green beans right on your countertop. Basically, it is Tree to Cup coffee machine.


Founded by Hans Stier in Berlin, Bonaverde coffee machine roasts, grinds and brews at a single push of a button, delivering ready to drink, the freshest coffee possible in about 12 minutes. What is more, you know exactly where the beans come from, because you talk with the farmer who grows them.


Think about it, coffee is grown in some 70 countries and is one of the hottest commodities on New York Board of Trade. Estimated staggering 2.25 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day around the world. You buying coffee directly from a farmer in Brazil or Vietnam, may make things quite interesting from at least two sides.


Money wise, you will likely save a lot, going direct to the farmer via Skype, phone or email, while enriching a real producer, not a trader. And the green beans will be shipped to you in small bags, with no plastics, foils and such, making a positive environmental impact.


Bonaverde has been crowd sourcing design ideas on Jovoto. Also, by contributing funds on Kickstarter, you are helping to bring the concept to production. With certain amounts of money, you can get the machine and coffee …. scroll down to the Packages to see your options. If everything goes according to plan, and there are close to 100 machines running already, Bonaverde shall start shipping October 2014. We will do our best to provide more insights shortly.

We are removing the dash from this jeep to fix a common problem on Jeep Grand Cherokees. The problem is that the recirculation door breaks and falls down on top of the blower motor causing the blower motor not to be able to blow any air out of the vents. We show the broken parts and where they are located in this video.

26 Oct 11 AMS ALPHA 12 Makes History – World’s FIRST 8 Second R35 GT-R

History has been made! On Tuesday July 26th our AMS ALPHA 12 GT-R went back to the track with a little more favorable weather conditions. The result was the World’s First 8 Second R35 GT-R! Even with a 1.668 60 foot time, the ALPHA 12 driven by our own Special Projects Technician, Ivan Phipps, went 8.975@169.49 mph! 60 foot 1.668 330ft 4.166 1/8th mile 6.042 1/8 mph 132.74 1000ft 7.634 1/4 8.975 1/4 mph 169.49 In addition the 60-130 time record was broken again with a 3.34 second blast from 60-130mph!! This makes the AMS Alpha 12 GT-R the fastest recorded street car to date from 60-130 mph!!! Not bad for a true street car with air conditioning and all the other amenities of a GTR. You can drive this car to the store or across the country! Of course all of our sponsors, without your support this would of been much more difficult. Your parts put us over the top!

I hope that u like what i made.

Here is another of my videos about the coin (vended) laundry business. This is a store we put in 12-years ago in Midland, Texas. Midland is halfway between Dallas & El Paso. Durring the video I mention the store is 10 years old but it’s actually 12 years old. Former President & Laura Bush are from Midland and the Midland/Odessa area is famous for its high school football teams. This store is 4600 sq/ft lease space improvement and has 46 Huebsch washers and 38 Huebsch dryer pockets. This is another example of how to do it right. This is one of the few stores where replacement equipment has been heed. The Huebsch equipment is built to last. After 12 years of good business the owner has kept this store in very good condition and he is beating two other newer stores within 1 mile.

26 Sep 11 Zsuzsi Gőzgépe | Zsuzsi’s Steam Engine. 1976 Mamod SA1 first steaming. 2011-05-07 18:00 UTC

Mrs Goose has never been 100% impressed with my boyish enthusiasm for expensive toys. Consequently, my growing collection of vintage model steam engines has encountered a certain amount of playful derision from “She-that-must-be-obeyed”. So I came up with a cunning plan to get Mrs Goose “on-side”. She happened to mention that she liked the look of Mamod’s rather pretty SA1 steam car. So, after spending more time than is good for me scouring eBay, I finally stumbled upon a real beauty. It’s a 1976 model – with the old style six-spoke wheels and the water level plug rather than the later level glass. It also has a methylated spirit burner rather than the more modern, solid-fuel type. I was delighted by the the fact that it had not been “restored” or generally messed-about with. It’s what I would call “a good, honest little motor”. However, there were a few minor issues that I had to resolve before we got steam up:- 1. The safety valve was jammed. This was simply a build up of limescale. A couple of hours soaking the valve in vinegar fixed it. 2. I ordered a set of replacement SA1 drive bands from a Mamod specialist to replace the knotted band and stretched bands it came with. Unfortunately one of the bands that arrived was too long. Fortunately, the the band was not joined together particularly well either! So I was able to undo it, shorten it and the refasten it again properly. Now it is fine. The other band was too big and too fat. Fortunately I had a spare that I was shows how to replace old basin taps with a new pair. This video also shows how to use split click centralising washers to centre the taps in the centre of the basin tap hole.

17 Sep 11 First footage of #58 with new paint job!

The title pretty much says it, this is the first footage I had captured of the repainted EDI RR that usually does my recycling (and has for about 2 years). There is some other stuff in this as well including a clip of 61 doing trash and some footage of 64 before the Bridgeport arm modification. You’ve already seen 58 repainted–this is just the result of being behind on uploading footage, everything gets sort of scrambled around due to better finds I make over time, and me wanting to show those things first 😀 So you’re watching footage here from August 2009 LOL! Enjoy~ I attached the first video I *posted* of #58 repainted, the video on THIS page is just the first footage I *filmed* after that happened. .
