Hundreds descend on Nevada desert near “Area 51”

author CBS This Morning   2 days ago

Hundreds of outsiders are descending on the remote Nevada desert near the military's mysterious "Area 51" base. They are there for the so-called "Storm Area 51" event. What began as a joke on Facebook for people curious about the site and aliens has turned into a music, movie and space-themed entertainment festival. Decades of secrecy surrounding "Area 51" has fueled speculation that it's where the government studies aliens that have visited earth.

I made it long time ago and never showed it was done. If you aren't familiar, a cross cut sled is a squared jig that wood can ride on that will result in a perfectly 90 degree cut on the table saw. I used a lot of laminated plywood pieces pocket-holed together to make a front and back fence. These fences were attached to a plywood bottom panel. To ensure that it consistently runs straight along the saw blade, you attach thin strips of wood to the underside that ride in the table saw's miter slots. That is basically it, a sled made of flat wood that runs in the miter slots, except that it isn't perfectly straight yet. To square up the back fence for consistent cuts, you use the "5-cut method." My cross cut sled was as close as I cared to get it, but be as exact as you like. Once the sled was square, I added some paste wax to the underside so it slid smoothly across the saw. The idea behind this cabinet is that it would be a place to store the cross cut sled as well as other table saw items; extra blade, throat plates, my dado stack, and even my adjustable miter gage. There is room under the existing table saw extension to the right of the saw, but I thought I could use this cabinet to extend the saw's surface to the left as well. I build a simple box on top of a wider platform with some drawer slides mounted on one side. The extra width at the bottom would allow for some adjustable feet underneath the cabinet without poking through the interior space. I also added some threaded inserts to the spot where the cabinet touched the table saw. The cast iron wing on my saw had some extra holes on that side so I could run a bolt through the saw and into the new extension cabinet. Using the adjustable feet, I made the top of the cabinet flush with the top of the saw and bolted them together. Besides having room for the cross cut sled, I added a few drawer slide to the interior space to accept a sliding storage panel. This shelf would hold all of the other things  I use on the table saw. Now, you could totally make some custom holders for blades or other items, but I'm super simple and just used some screws. I made a simple handle out of a scrap 2x4 and the interior storage space was finished! Having the cabinet's extra surface space is nice, but it isn't quite big enough. I struggle with wrangling a full sheet of plywood on my table saw when ripping pieces. By adding a flip-up extension wing, I can now rip pieces off of a full sheet without it awkwardly tipping off the side fo the saw. The brackets I used to lift up the wing are rated for 300 lbs each, so I'm totally not worried about it collapsing under the weight of a semi-supported sheet of plywood. I really love this new shop fixture. It solved a few problems I had with organization and saw capacity. Building a new, more accurate cross cut sled was an added bonus that rounded out the project. This cabinet can work for any saw you may have. If you use a contractor saw that folds up, the cabinet can be bolted to the side of it as well. If there aren't any hole in the end of the saw wing, you could just clamp it together from underneath.

If there’s one place on Earth you can already get a glimpse of our robot-assisted future, it’s Japan. Routinely at the forefront of robotics research, the country has brought us some of the weirdest automatons, most lifelike androids, and cutest helper-bots. Nowhere is this more evident than at Nagasaki’s Henn-na Hotel, a hotel run by robots that opened this year. Walk into reception and a mechanised dinosaur will guide you through check-in; go to your room and a luggage bot will wheel your suitcase along beside you; get ready for bed and your own robot companion will turn out the lights. Henn-na Hotel CEO Hideo Sawada sells his offering as part of a utopian vision where robots take over manual labour so humans can turn their attention to more creative pursuits. Replacing staff with robots might reduce labour costs, but their appeal to visitors needs to last beyond novelty value. Motherboard host Ben Ferguson checks into the robot hotel in the first episode of our new travel series Voyager, made possible by travel tool KAYAK ( The robot workers he meets are courteous and communicative, but can they emulate the human warmth of their flesh-and-blood counterparts? Could robots really be our future holiday companions, or do man and machine ultimately get lost in translation?
