Do Something Analog! Like Eric, who writes, "My favorite analog (mostly) activity is working on cars. This time it was my old '97 F150 needing a couple of new pulleys and a water pump while I was in there. Since no one had the special tool I needed I made my own fan clutch tools." Photos of the wrench Eric made from an old mower blade and a pipe, and "the pulley holder is from a piece of flat steel I've had for over 10 years and just keep grind/drilling into different tools" in the video!
