Sharpening a planer blade is a real pain for beginners. It is not so easy to manually set the correct angle between the emery wheel and the piece of iron and maintain this angle throughout the entire sharpening process. For such cases, I propose a simple adaptation to the grindstone. He welded a bushing to the T-stand and installed this assembly in place of the hand rest. A roller can move freely in the sleeve, which is connected through an adapter to a ruler - a steel strip 5 mm thick. A retaining strip is attached to the latter with two wing screws.

The device works as follows. The tool - a planer blade, a chisel or a chisel - is clamped between the ruler and the fixing strip so that the angle between the tangent to the emery stone and the plane of the tool is approximately 10 °. , remove the excess layer of metal from the blade. After such processing, it is already easy to refuel on the touchstone.

Blinking of the magician and his audience 19.05.2024

Magic and illusions have always captured the attention of the public, but what happens behind the scenes of the magician and in the brains of his audience? Scientists from the UK decided to solve this mystery by conducting a new study involving ten illusionists of varying experience. Illusionists, some of whom had been practicing magic for more than half a century, others for only six months, were invited to demonstrate the same trick - the popular coin trick. Recordings of their performances during training and on stage showed that each of them began to blink significantly more often at the moment of performing the trick. The study's findings indicate that magicians' blink rate may be related to unconscious aspects of their performance. At the same time, as scientists have found, spectators also begin to blink more often, following the movements of the illusionist. This observation supports the idea that magicians may be catalysts for blinking in audiences. Additional research has shown that magicians blink more often during ... >>

Ultrasonic coffee machine 19.05.2024

Iced coffee has become an integral part of coffee culture in recent years. Therefore, engineers from the University of New South Wales decided to improve its preparation. They have developed an ultrasonic coffee machine that reduces the cold brew time for ground coffee beans from 12-24 hours to significantly less time. Iced coffee, or "Cold brew", is popular due to its smoothness, low acidity and low bitterness. It is prepared by steeping ground coffee in cold water for a long time. Unlike traditional hot brewing, which often imparts bitterness to coffee, cold brewing extracts more delicate and complex flavors from the coffee beans. The innovative system, presented by a team of engineers, introduces ultrasonic technology into the coffee preparation process. The system uses ultrasonic waves to speed up the process of extracting oils, flavor and aroma from ground coffee. This allows you to significantly reduce the time ... >>

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Growing an artificial leg 20.06.2015

Our legs and arms are made of muscles, bones, cartilage, blood vessels, ligaments, skin, and all of it is connected so skillfully that it seems easier to replace a lost arm or leg with a completely artificial prosthesis than to try to repeat nature exactly. However, this is exactly what researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital managed to do, who were able to recreate a limb from cellular material. True, so far we are not talking about human hands and feet, but about the paw of a rat.

The essence of the work was as follows. As you know, in addition to cells in any organs and tissues, there is also an intercellular matrix consisting of proteins, glycoproteins, lipids, etc. The matrix helps the cell mass to keep its shape, forming something like a scaffold for which cells can hold on. They can be removed with the help of special detergents, and the frame itself will remain intact. And so, passing the detergent through the forelimb taken from a dead rat, Harald Ott (Harald C. Ott) and his colleagues cleaned off all the cells from it, but so that the matrix of blood vessels and muscles remained in place. The procedure took 52 hours, and what happened with the paw can be seen here. The result was something like a three-dimensional contour of a limb, which now had to be filled with new cellular content.

The paw was placed in a bioreactor, in which it was to grow cells. First, they were grown separately, and then they were injected into an "empty" limb: the cells that were supposed to restore the vessels were placed in the matrix left over from the veins and arteries, those that were supposed to restore the muscles were injected into the muscle membranes. After five days, the limb was treated with a weak electric current so that the muscle cells formed the correct muscles, and after two weeks they checked what happened.

In an article in Biomaterials, the authors write that both vascular and muscle cells did everything right. The rat's foot received new vessels and new muscles, and when it was transplanted into another rat, the vessels provided blood circulation, and the muscles contracted in response to electrical stimulation - the foot flexed at the wrist and flexed the phalanges of the fingers. It is worth noting, however, that there were no nerves in the paw, so that the rat could not control the new front leg. Researchers are going to work on the restoration of the nervous system in the near future, so that the transplanted limb can be felt and controlled.

In itself, transplanting an arm or leg from one person to another is no longer new, but in this case it is often necessary to pacify the immunity that attacks the new limb as a foreign body. With the help of progenitor cells taken from the patient himself, it would be possible to grow all the necessary tissues of the leg or arm, but another problem arises here: how to organize these tissues in the right way. So far, it has not been possible to grow a limb from scratch (unless you try to print it on a 3D printer), but you can try using some kind of frame. Of course, there may also be problems with the immune system, but not at all the same as with a transplant of the entire leg or arm, with all their cells.

By the way, the authors of the work in the same way managed to clean the front arm of the baboon from cells, so all that remains is to correctly "stuff" it with human muscle, nerve and epithelial cells - and the new arm will be ready.
