Day 6 (even though it’s Saturday): Ax ManPosted: September 1, 2012
Today the family took a slight detour so I could hit up Ax Man for materials for The Ball Bounce Challenge, my first day activity I stole from Frank Noschese. I have always heard about this iconic surplus store in the Twin Cities (I have no idea if they exist elsewhere) but had never been. Talk about a kid in a candy store!
I grabbed a small DC fan as well to try to make a fan cart (I plan to wire it with a potentiometer and a 9V for the ability to control the acceleration), but the stay was limited due to 2.5 and 4.5 year olds getting into everything. I will be back, hopefully soon.
