Recently acquired the shell of an two old cf-25 toughbooks. Thought i would gut, install new screen, keyboard and raspberry pi, with the goal of mobile computing.
Any suggestions for additional hardware that would be interesting/useful to integrate? only suggestion I've had so far has been a headphone amp/DAC for audio out.
What other cool stuff could I cram in there. There's heaps of spare real estate, all I have factored to fit so far is the rpi and its connectivity addons, li-po battery, charging circuit, new keyboard, a 15' LCD from a newer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>942315 I would maybe suggest a Novena instead of rpi, it's actually almost designed for what you are trying to do. Might need to look at the dimensions etc, but it would be far more flexible and useful than a pi.
I would like to buy some hardware like the one pictured. I need to attach a bar to a fixed handrail at a 90 degree angle. The closest I've found in ne is specialty marine hardware called a hinged rail tee. Any help most welcome. Thanks.
hey /diy/. first time here so sorry if i've made a mistake I want to make these shoes as close to all-white or off white as I can, so I want to get rid of the color from the blue leather parts and the logos. Will bleach do this? Reading around online some people are saying it's fine and others that it will "destroy" them however that may be if bleach doesn't work, what else could I do to get rid of the color? thanks
Guys I have a phone with a glossy back. Pic related- similar Anyway, it's scratched to hell and I want to add a soft touch or matte finish to it. It's a fingerprint magnet as well. How do I go about this?
Not sure, we always just put a heater in our well pump house (lol innawoods) and at night we would crack the faucets so they were just dripping to keep pump running and water flowing throughout the night.
I had a plumber friend come solder in shutoff valves to all my spigots. I turn them off and drain before the first freeze.
My basement is partially built and the only part of my house with exposed pipes (minus the spigots). It gets about 5-10 degrees cooler than the rest of my house in winter. 66 upstairs, 61 downstairs 27 degrees outside.
I could probably turn my heat completely off and not worry about the pipes. Then again, I live in the south.

Sup /diy/ My bro's birthday is coming up next month and I'm making him a handheld emulator for NES, Gameboy, etc., and I'm doing it with a Raspberry pi. The most interesting part is going to be the controls, for which I have bought an arduino pro mini. Ideally, I would like it to have 11 buttons on it (A, B, X, Y, L, R, up, down, left, right) and also a joystick. The arduino can handle all of those inputs, however my problem is that it doesn't have enough empty headers to use on the GPIO on the Raspberry pi (nor does the RPi contain enough empty GPIO pins...

I am diving head-first into diy laser engraving/cutting with pic related kit. I ordered longer rails and extra belt to replace original frame to give myself more room to work/fuck up. Does anyone out there have recommendations on how to best go about getting started?
I'm going to start making tobacco smoking pipes, Is a scroll saw strong enough to cut 2 1/2-to-3" pieces of cherrywood or should I stick with a band saw? I like the idea of a scroll saw for the detail aspect.
I've been making hand painted wooden boxes for commissions, they are just artists oil paint on wooden boxes. I've been trying to find a good clear coat to give it a finish like the one in the picture, but so far I've tried varnish made for oil paint and it has a sticky feeling and it's not smooth at all. I'm trying to find a clear coat finish that's safe to use on oil papint

Secondly the frame sections are formed. the frame sections are made by bending and hammering sheet metal on a 0.500 square bar as a mandrel. Cut the sheet metal to a width of 2.563" refer to the template for lengths. First bend is .125" in an L shape, Clamp the sheet metal with the mandrel in the vise with .125 of sheet metal above the mandrel. hammer the sheet metal to form a 90 deg bend. Continue forming the sheet metal around the bar forming a square tube. Slide the formed tube off the mandrel. Cut the tube to the required lengths.
Third the frame is connected... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Half my house, like right down middle is suddenly having power problems. The right side appliances and lights are barely on, and the electronics are turning on and then off. Other side of house is fine along with the overhead lights.
