Welcome to Plans for Everything

These are plans for all kinds of interesting things you may or may not have ever thought about building. Many are scans from old books and magazines, now in the public domain. Others I have drawn and engineered myself, usually the ones I charge for. I'm a mechanical engineer with a long career of designing and building special machines and automated manufacturing equipment.

Important Note

Many of the contraptions you find on these pages were designed a long time ago, way before many of the newer safety standards have been imposed. Many can be dangerous to build and to use. Under no circumstances will the operator of this web site take any responsibility for the safety of the designs offered here, the usability of any of them for any purpose, nor the safety of the devices once built. The builder assumes all liability for the devices, their construction and their use.
