Messiah College Students Develop Ingenious & Inexpensive 3D Printed Prosthetic Hand

The clever students (Timothy Gover, Jessica Raboci, and Jason Yoder) at Messiah College's School of Science, Engineering, and Health have developed a prototype of an inexpensive prosthetic hand for children with birth defects or deformities. The ingenious aspect is the simplicity of the design and how economically the prosthetics can be developed. Using a MarkerBot Z18 Replicator 3D printer with PLA plastic, the students put together the prosthetic hand using a design available from Thingverse, a marketplace for 3D printer designs, Versimold as the flat hinges, and added a curved thumb. The entire hand operates via mechanical wrist actions and allows...

Just How Strong is Versimold? Let's Find Out!

Selling an interesting product such as Versimold, we often receive questions about the product like "how long does it take to cure" or "does Versimold float?" (it does!). Recently someone asked us a very simple question which we couldn't answer directly: how strong is Versimold? Sure - we could easily direct them to the chemical performance specifications of Versimold (located here), but sometimes we have more fun figuring it out ourselves. And that's exactly what we did in the following video. Now for a disclaimer - this video is not scientific in the slightest and should not be used as...

'63 Airstream Overlander: Restoring Our Souls Through an Icon

There are many products and elements from American history that have maintained themselves as quintessential Americana - icons that are inseparable from American culture and will forever define a decade or an era. Be it the Hoover Dam, the 57 Chevy, or even the Boeing 707, each of these icons have preserved a specific period of American history: the Great Depression, the automotive golden age, or the jet age. The Airstream trailer with its instantly recognizable rounded aluminum shape is no exception.  (Photo credit: Homedsgn.com) After WW2, America's economy was thriving. More money in people's pockets meant leisure and luxury were...

How I Made a Custom O-Ring Gasket with Versimold & a Jar of Pasta Sauce

Sometimes the benefits of having a product that you can do just about anything with is that you end up making things just because you can. That's exactly what I did over the weekend when I had an abundance of free time and didn't feel like adulting (cutting the grass, cleaning the bathroom, that sort of stuff). As you can see below, my main mission was to replicate or create a replacement o-ring gasket for my water bottle that I've been using every day for over two years. There's nothing technically wrong with the existing gasket, but I had to...

Restoring Your Classic Car with Versimold: 1955 Buick Century Trunk Lid Stops

When you're restoring your classic car, you're going to inevitably need to replace or repair rubber parts throughout the project. Whether that be o-rings, gaskets, grommets, seals, or in this case, a trunk lid stop for a 1955 Buick Century. (photo credit: Pinterest user Dave Neifer - not Mudbone's Buick) Mudbone's '55 Buick Century is being completely restored to its former glory as an opulent coupe that competed against Cadillac as American's favored luxury brand. But with any restoration project, finding the required parts can either be difficult to source or expensive to purchase. However, those with a little bit of...
