DIY video tools
This is a collection of tools I built to help my video efforts. Each project was created with the following goals in mind:
These projects writeups are not intended to be used as step-by-step tutorials for completing the build, rather they're meant to act as ideas to be incorporated into projects for those who have DIY experience and tools.
- Reduce cost by DIY over purchasing a tool with identical functionality
- Create a professional looking tool - clients must have confidence in your tools as well as your abilities
- Use as many off-the shelf parts as possible and repurpose them for the build - a finished part (cut, bent, anodized, etc.) will improve the appearance of the final build over attempting to manufacture a similar part yourself.
- Minimize the amount of machinning required to the bare minimum - I try to limit the labor on each project to as few cuts as possible, drilling and tapping holes.
The following tools are an absolute necessity for the DIY builder:
10" miter saw and 10" metal cutting blade
Drill and Tap set
