This Maytag MacGyver Turned His Kitchen Into a Factory

•, By Joseph Flaherty
 3-D printers promise to put a factory on every kitchen table in America, but for those willing to think outside the stainless steel box, kitchen appliances and common craft materials can be used to manufacture a wide variety of products, from serving platters to silverware.

Instead of trudging into the school’s workshops, Steiner remodeled his tiny kitchen into a microfactory and poured molten metal into molds made from cereal boxes, turned his blender into a potter’s wheel that spun a ‘clay’ made of old newspapers, and retrofitted his washing machine with an embroidery hoop, transforming it into a rotational molding machine.
