Mechanical Elements is back online with a new look, a new logo, new functionality, and a better shopping experience. — With — an expanded offering of the Same Great DIY Project Plans and so much more. All this on the Old, but now resurrected, though not so recent, MechanicalElements.com domain. — January 7, 2016.
As Mechanical Elements returns again to it’s own website, this brings us full circle. The one constant in all the change is the great DIY project plans that are here for you, the Do-it-Yourself Enthusiast. We say “Enthusiast“, but we really mean those that jump in, get their hands a little greasy, then end up with a product that is much better than anything available through a store. You just can’t buy the pride of building a great project yourself.
“Build it With Plans – Better Than You Can Buy It !!”
If that’s you, then it’s easy to solute you! Because we are you. We are very much a part of the greasy fingers DIY category of folks that make the world go around. We build stuff, lots of stuff, including the things of the plans we sell! And, we test the stuff we build, via everyday use and abuse, so we know these products will perform. In fact, most of the original products came about as a solution WE (or the Wife or a friend) wanted to have. Since then, many of our newer plans come from suggestions from you, our readers and customers.
Some of the things we have for you are simple Solutions! like this little Gantry Crane Skyhook. (So simple it doesn’t need plans.) Others are obviously much more involved like our Heavy Duty Utility Trailers, Shop Tools, and other great DIY projects.
Past & Future DIY Project Plans
With the re-launching of this site, the DIY project plans are now, once again, available for you on Mechanical Elements. Interestingly, the first plans sales were on the MechanicalElements.com domain in the late 1990’s. After several years and for many reasons, the domain was put on hold with the plans then sold on Synthx.com in the “Buy The Way” section. That worked for a time, and it served a purpose. However, now, because of a desire to expand the site with tips and a lot more DIY helps and information, we’ve gone back to the MechanicalElements.com domain.
Is that all too confusing? The history is not so important as the fact it’s here now. Just think of it as Great plans for DIY projects, with lots of articles for information, and a lot more to come!
Our new focus takes us beyond just the DIY Project Plans. One big addition for this new version of Mechanical Elements is the new section we call “The Mechanic’s Post“. There we have a growing library of helpful DIY tips with tons of suggestions, news, guides, recommendations, and so much more. We set out to be the web’s DIY portal.
That’s a lofty goal, we know, but we believe, and you can help. Submit your project stories and share your ideas for cool Solutions! Whether it’s the beginning of a project or something when it’s complete. If you have a story about a project built with plans from Mechanical Elements, (or Synthx.com Buy The Way) we’d like to hear it.
Thank you for making this your home for awesome workshop projects. Start here to get your DIY project plans, and so much more great information. Let us know how we can best make this website serve you — the DIY Enthusiast!
