#Day67 #365JosHappyDays – Sky Beach!!!… A beach in the sky?!

image Yes that’s right just when I thought infinity pools couldn’t get any more awesome along comes the sky beach! ..SKY BEACH!! I still can’t quite get over how amazing it is! It’s got real sand, palms trees, hammocks and when the winds blowing a bit it’s even got waves! It’s just too cool,  thank you Thomas for inviting me up please let me come again?! .. All because you make a good life guard of course haha

Sadly this hidden gem in the heavens is a private pool for residents only but I’ll check up on that. Seems like the ultimate party spot, has a kitchen up there to use plus a sky high hot tub!

Haha well by the looks of all the exclamation marks I’ve written you can probably tell this place gets me excited. For more #365JosHappyDays click here

#Day29 #365JosHappyDays – 3D Printing Win!!

image

Love this sooo much! Right so not only does is that little super tool useful for sanding down and taking off the the excess plastic of a 3D print but it can put it back on too! So happy to find out the tool is spot on the same size as the filament we use so I just slide it in, crank up the rpm and the plastic friction welds both bits together.

In this case we cracked part of the hand forcing a pin in to hard but I’ve just used some spare white filament and tested out joining back together and it worked a treat 🙂

.. I may have spent the end of the day just experimenting putting in different filaments and colouring things with my new hot gooey plastic pen ha,  great fun!…  *Also dangerous if it’s unbalanced and high rpm haha I soon put the goggles on 😉

#Day16 #365JosHappyDays – New Office Toy

#Day16 #365JosHappyDays  –  New Office Toy

Do love a good gadget and this is making the fine tuning a piece of cake. Think of it as a mini drill or grinder with many more mini capabilities. I have one of these at my workshop back home but I’m loving this Japanese one, I can definitely feel that weighty quality to it.

Above we have the first baby hand and the bigger one to test on my hand. Called the raptor hand and part of amazing Enable project which I shall explain soon 🙂

#Day13 #365JosHappyDays – Double decker bullet train

Went on my first ever double decker bullet train or ‘Shinkansen’, heck until now I didn’t even know they existed! And they managed to go at speeds of 200mph while feeling like gliding through the air! Truly some amazing Japanese engineering wish my trains at home were this amazing and punctual; apparently this was late by 36 seconds once.*due to natural disaster!
