Theory Points of Study
Layer-1 - Blocks most reptiles and Insects. Mosquitos to Fruit Flies. Aperture of Grid 1 sq mm. Material Aluminum.
Layer-2 - Another Layer similar to above, but facing the Outside Garden/Road. Aluminum Mesh 5 sq mm holes, resist Big Rats and others. It is thick and strong. Prevent Small Animals, Birds too.
The layers are as large as windows and are separated by 5-10mm by 12 nylon spacers. These may have small pins fixed in the gap in many places for "Action of Points" .
Layer-1 is anode, Layer-2 is cathode. Very High Voltage of Very Low Current, ionize air and coagulate dust, smells, pollen and other floating colloids. The plates when touched by Humans cannot cause any harm. Current less that 100 microamps. This ionizer powered by an isolated 24V adapter, draws very low power so it can be kept on all the times
Gaurd Layers -
Finger Gaurd layers on either side made of a decorative design with apertures smaller than fingers made of Environment Resistant Plastic or Epoxy. The layers are as large as the windows and can be the aesthetic part.
Solar Air Cleaner and Humidifier ACH Option
This is a Solar energy based Air Cleaner and Humidifier that covers 1/4 of the window like a Box-Slab at the Top of Window. It is optional and an addon internal module to the DustFrame.
The Solar Panel is as wide as window and fitted on top of windows at an angle outside. The length can be around 6 inches or less. The ACH fitted inside is 1/4th or less the height of window. The rest of window 3/4 is open for fresh air but the air is cleaned by ionizer frame like in explanation above.
Hobby Projects - Insulation tester, LED Circuits, Meters.
The 1/4 ACH is a Box 6 inches deep on the inside, it is sealed but with a place to pour or guide water thru a mini water pipe, like the tubes used in Intravenous Systems used in hospitals.
The water collects at bottom of the box and drawn upward by a capillary action by an array of cotton wicks in matrix formation. The wicks grow from the floor of box to top.
Tiny row of low power fans powered by solar and rechargeable battery, draw air thru the ionizer layer and blows on the wicks array. The air exiting from this box is cool, clean and recharged with some humidity. it could also be one fan with long vertical geared turbine barrel plastic fin too, this sucks the air and blows on the wet wicks.
This system reduces dust, toxic colloids and allergy causants. It also prevents mosquito, flies, rodents and other small pests. It recharges the air with some humidity that keeps the room healthy and fresh. It consumes very low power and can be run on solar energy. The wet wicks also add a bit of cooling if the air is too warm.

The Mini Metrology Lab - Conrad Hoffman
His "Electronic Mess" section has many pages on repairing and restoring old instruments and equipment.
An Excerpt from his pages is a Reading Pleasure due to his rich experience and enticing language.
Troubleshooting Audio Electronics
I ain't gonna lie. You won't be a master troubleshooter after reading a couple pages here. Hopefully, what I can do is give you the ability to form a logical plan of attack.He also has a Design and Testing Services called Deep Run Design.
Troubleshooting is done mostly with the mind, not with the soldering iron. We all have problems that get the better of us, at least for a while, but approaching the situation as an interesting puzzle, rather than an unpleasant task to be suffered through, will make the work go quickly.
Success will come from a 3-prong approach, a combination of understanding the circuit, having the means to test it and being in the right frame of mind to correctly interpret the test data. Never underestimate that third component.

Make your own PCB Mechanical Routing/Erosion/Milling Machine at a low cost.
"Design a low cost circuit board milling machine optimized to be mass-produced."
The overall device has a working area of 4" x 6" with a footprint roughly the size of a letter-sized sheet of paper. Capstan drives were chosen for their simplicity and low cost, and also serve as torque limiters to prevent excessive loads on the small-diameter drive cables.

Makerbot - 3D Mechanical Prototype Synthesis
Makerbot is an open source robot that helps people make robots that make things.
"The only fear is that it can Replicate itself" - Ananth ....When i had posted first..
MakerBot Industries is a Brooklyn, New York-based company founded in January 2009 by Bre Pettis, Adam Mayer, and Zach "Hoeken" Smith producing 3D printers. MakerBot builds on the early progress of the RepRap Project. - 2013 updated
