Stats, Stats and more Stats

Found an interesting website that grades your website, so thought I’d give this site a quick go.

Given that the site is hosted on wordpress.com, it lost some points, and more because some aspects of the site (such as keywords etc) are attached to http://www.stusshed.com, rather than the site’s actual address https://stusshed.wordpress.com

All that aside, and as a test (with its limitations) of stusshed.wordpress.com, we got the following results:

Website Grade

Website Grade

This initial score is the final, overall score for the site, covering about 50 different variables, and puts it in the top 9% of websites out there (at least of the 400k that has been graded by Website Grader.

In addition, we are in the top 6% for site traffic, and most cool, we are in the top 1.75% in popularity of blogs out there.

Don’t know anything about the product at this stage, but it kind of looks like a pen draughting printer that uses a small router bit rather than a pen, and cuts into wood rather than drawing on paper.

Wonder if it will ever be seen Down Under, in traditional Blue (with carbon fibre shell), or Orange livery?

Shed Wall Decoration

As a result of some of the demonstrations that occurred at the Melbourne Wood Show, I now have some new wall decorations for the shed.

SawStop Blade and Brake

SawStop Blade and Brake

This was a carbide-tipped blade that (deliberately) contacted a surrogate finger (a sausage) during a cut.  It caused the brake to fire, driving the aluminium block hard into the blade, bringing it to a stop in phenomenally short amount of time.  As you can see, a lot of the energy from the blade is dissipated in significant distortion in the brake.
