How To Make A Free and Accurate Kitchen Scale

youtube

This kitchen scale took me only a few minutes to make. My invention uses a few commonly available materials and tools. It is free and pretty accurate. It is also durable and easy to use. To improve the accuracy, I have provided a few guidelines to help you to understand the usage and find the optimal accuracy for your own situation. Since all the parts used in making it can be used or shared with your other projects (the paint stick can be used as a ruler), it does not require any space to store it. I hope this video can inspire you to invent useful devices with things available to you. This kind of project will also nurture your kids’ creativity and future-proof their skills. If you have any tips, please leave a comment below.

I will also show you how to make another very small scale that is hidden inside your shopping bag. This way you can do comparative shopping discretely. If you don’t have the time or the ability to make the first one, the rubber band scale is easier to make. But it does need more time to re-calibrate especially if you stretch it too much.

How to Find 10,000 Hours Of Taiji Push Hands Practice


In his book, “Outliers”, Malcolm Gladwell proposed the “10,000-Hour Rule”, claiming that the key to achieving world-class expertise in any skill, is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing the correct way for a total of around 10,000 hours. In this video Master Byron, who is very busy in his construction business, shares with us how to find the ten thousand hours in one’s busy daily life.

Taiji Fun Game For Hip Rotation and Center Axis


Many people can not rotate their hips and keep their axis straight while under force. It is difficult to practice no matter how many times you are told to relax and are reminded not to use force. This video may just perform that miracle. You will even be motivated because it becomes a fun game (instead of the boring traditional exercise). In addition, we find that if you are practicing some moves for a long period of time without improvement, so changing your routine may speed up your progress.

In many of Byron’s videos, he will present various options for you to use in training. Some of them may suit your current state while others may be too simple or you may not be ready to comprehend at your current level. Master Wang Zhuang Hong in his book says: when you crossed the river, you no longer need the boat anymore. Also after you reached a new level, you may have to unlearn or discard some of the practices you used in the previous level.
