[Phys-l] Constructing Physics Equipment

Does anyone know of a good build-it-yourself resource book for a new physics teacher?

In doing some searching on the web, I've found some titles of presentations like "Building an Inexpensive Air Track" and "A Cheap Hunter and Monkey Demo," but no further information was provided beyond the title.

Any suggestions on where to find the directions to make good physics equipment from items readily available from Home Depot and Radio Shack?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
