Rau Antiques; Steak and Background: Getty Images Billionaires, amirite? They didn’t get to where they are by wasting money on frivolous things, which means the task of buying a present for one can feel especially fraught. Luckily we’ve spent the past year covering the cream of the luxury crop in food, travel, real estate, art, style, and sports and came up with the following 12 gifts any megawealthy macher would appreciate. Because when money is no object, true titillation is more about the exclusivity, experience, and return on investment—and yes, sometimes a really, really big beach.  Although gifting etiquette says you should never buy somebody an animal, breeding a winning thoroughbred is no small endeavor, leaving your billionaire ample opportunity to make sure they’re committed—especially if you’re taking them direct to the top of the heap with Justify, winner of the 150th Belmont Stakes and 13th Triple Crown, the first champion to retire unbeaten and warrant $75 million for breeding rights. But akin to that traditional pilgrimage to Papa before marriage, to woo Justify you’ll have to court th...

New Generation 3D Lasers Grow Metro-Detroit Job Shop

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. Sometimes succession of a family business from one generation to the next doesn’t always go as planned. Take, for example, Laser Specialists Inc. (Fraser, MI). Incorporated in 1986, the company was positioned at the forefront of laser cutting technology. Its founder, Thomas J. Paquin, was a pioneer in the laser cutting industry and is credited with introducing one of the first five-axis laser systems to the Metro-Detroit area in 1989. Paquin’s unexpected death in 1993 significantly reduced the momentum of the young company.Paquin’s sons were still children at that time and the courts appointed interim management to run the company, which proved unsuccessful. It wasn’t to be successful until 2004 when two of Paquin’s sons, Jon and Nick, took control of the laser cutting job shop. While periods of the last 13 years have been challenging, perseverance, hard work, and savvy equipment procurement have led to success. Laser Specialists has grown into a 24,000 ft2 (2229-m2) manufacturing center, equipped with a variety of laser cutting systems. Th...

The Snapmaker 2.0 can 3D print, laser engrave, and is a CNC machine

Practically every prototyping tool you’d ever need exists within the realm of the Snapmaker 2.0. In its second, more expansive, open, and fine-tuned iteration, the guys at Snapmaker have put together an absolute prototyping powerhouse that literally takes up not more than a square that measures 3×3 feet. The modular device can be built to run as a 3D Printer, a Laser Engraver/Cutter, and even a 3 or even 4 Axis CNC Machine. The Snapmaker 2.0 isn’t a product as much as it’s an eco-system… a set of opportunities. An ability to practically fabricate anything you want! At the heart of the Snapmaker is its complete metal construction and modular nature. Metal allows you to have near-perfect tolerances, it can take heat, and it’s the choice for any product that’s as heavy duty as a fabricating system. Snapmaker’s metal construction ensures its ability to perform to precision, while its modular nature gives it the ability to do any sort of fabrication you’d need. Designed to be faster, smarter, and even larger, the Snapmaker 2.0 can handle bigger projects than its previous iteration, and can deliver quality faster. Snapmaker 2.0’s modular build allows you to put together the product yo...

Textile Label Launch Includes Dual NFC-UHF Functionality, Printing Machines – 2019-03-13 – Page 1

Textrace is now offering licensing for companies that wish to build RFID-enabled woven labels, while its partner and sister company, Jakob Müller AG, is making two new machines developed for creating the labels. The machines can be used to weave text into those labels, along with an integrated woven RFID antenna, and can also create non-RFID labels. The company has been developing its textile-based RFID labels for eight years, but the new platform (known as Soft Brand and Care Labels) and machines are now putting the products in the hands of service bureaus, label makers and potential end users. “We expect to have first tests and pilot volumes with one or two brands running in 2019,” says Stephan Buehler, the company’s CEO. “The interest and feedback are very promising so far from sports, fashion and underwear brands we have directly approached.” The labels operate with ICs provided by either Impinj or NXP Semiconductors, says Marc Höntsch, Textrace’s commercial director. They can include 13.56 MHz NFC chips compliant with the ISO 14443 standard, he adds, so that the tags could respond not only to UHF readers, but also to NFC-enabled smartpho...

Learn how to make hard cider. You can make delicious, intoxicating hard cider at home with

Learn how to make hard cider. You can make delicious, intoxicating hard cider at home with this simple process. Brewing hard cider from non-alcoholic, or “sweet” cider is a simple process, and the inebriating end product is as delicious as it is discombobulating. Here are the steps you’ll follow to make hard cider of your own. Choose Your Juice. The best hard cider is made from sweet apple cider fresh from the cider press — whether your own, or a local cider mill’s. If you’re buying sweet cider, start by checking the label to be sure the cider doesn’t contain chemical preservatives, because these will kill your yeast and your cider will not ferment. (The cider is chemically preserved if sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate are listed on the label.) Your best bet for preservative-free cider is to buy it in season from a local orchard. In a pinch, you can also make hard cider with grocery store apple juice, as long as it doesn’t have preservatives. Also, be aware that most commercial cidermakers are required to pasteurize their cider, and the process they use will affect the flavor. Preferably, your sweet cider should be “cold pasteurized,” which kills microorganisms with ultravi...

Inside Fine And Rare’s Unique Décor And ‘Poisonous’ Fish And Chips

Manhattan-based restaurant Fine & Rare offers old-world charm, jazz, fine spirits and most recently “poisonous” scorpion fish and chips. “We wanted to kick off the launch of our lunch menu with a unique menu offering, and I loved the idea of a twist on the typical fish and chips,” says Fine & Rare executive chef Philip Sireci. “At Fine & Rare, we like to create a theatrical experience for our guests where they have the opportunity to learn about exciting and rare spirits and foods.” He adds that he was introduced to the scorpion fish by a Portuguese fisherman when he was working as a chef in Provincetown, Mass., and he later encountered it again when dining in New Orleans. “I loved the texture and sweet flavor the fish had: a cross between monkfish and red snapper,” Sireci notes. The fish is considered venomous because of its spines, which Sireci says can be removed with kitchen shears when the fish is dead and then rendered harmless once cooked. At Fine & Rare, the fish and chips are served with scorpion chili dusted fries. The eatery also serves more traditional takes on American dishes, such as baked stuffed Maine lobster and organic Amish chicken. The menu ro...

Best cordless drills for DIY in home and garden Home Home Social/Facebook Social/Twitter

Whether it’s a wonky shelf or a day of decking – here are the tools that will easily get the job done It used to be that cordless drills were heavy and underpowered, but with lithium batteries as standard now they are a sure fire way to take the hassle and hard work out of a range of home improvement jobs. Combi drills are so called because of their ability to drill into wood, metal and masonry along with high torque ratings for driving in long screws.  We can’t talk about drills without talking about torque, which translates to the turning force that the tool can deliver – the more torque you have, the easier it will be for you to drill into harder materials, like masonry.  You’ll find some of the highest torque settings on impact drivers; however, bear in mind that they can be noisy (think of the noise coming from a tyre change during an F1 pit stop) so you should take this into account if you’re working in close proximity to others.  Ultimately, drills are all about power and the more you have at your disposal the more torque you will be able to muster, which is why 18V drills are ideally suited to heavy duty projects.  However, there are some 12V options that are great kitch...
