Me and my girlfriend are looking at apartments here in The Overland Park area and near by (Close to Kansas City). Yes, we live with her mom. Anyway....

What things should I look for when looking at these shit holes? I been going over a lot of them the past few weeks and reading reviews, but most of the reviews are 6 months to a year+ old.

Next is security. I dont need people stealing my shit. I looked around at a few things online and thought about getting a few (2ish?) wifi cameras or maybe going super cheap and setting up some old android phones as wifi cameras....

anon, i think you are over thinking this.

It's just an apartment, if it seems clean and dry, look for any water leaks, just basic stuff like that.

As far as temperature goes, thats going to be dictated more by the building construction and what floor you are on. I'm in leafland, the highest floor I lived on was the 7th, and i never once turned the thermostat up, and that was a concrete building. Basements are the comfiest but then you have to worry about your shit because your on ground level.

Looking for a miter saw but I'm a bit of a dumbass. Is a miter saw different from a compound miter saw?

Have my eye on a 10' sliding compound miter saw to build a floating deck with a pergola next summer, waiting to see if I can get a good deal on black friday.

The problem with these is that there's no way to purify and store water. That gives you 72 hours at the most.

It also renders the fishing hooks pointless because, if by some miracle you do catch something eating it would bring on dehydration quicker.

I made one that was different to put in my pocket when I was boating. It would be there in case I fell out or something.

I have a wooden drawer that had incense stored in it for a few years. There were a bunch of papers and stuff sitting in the same drawer. Now the drawers and their contents smell heavily of incense. I can't stand the smell. I've disposed of the incense and removed, cleaned, and let the drawers and contents air out for a few weeks, but I can still smell it. Is there a way to get rid of the smell completely? If nothing else, will it go away over time now that the incense is removed?

I've got an 80 gallon air compressor similar to pic related and something is messed up. I let it run and it doesn't fill up (gauge doesn't rise from 0). The motor definitely sounds different when it runs. I found the oil cap popped off and the cover for the air filter loose. What do you think? Normally I'd think it's the check valve but now the motor sounds different.

Alright, /diy/hard woodworkers, I've at my wit's end.
I've made box joints with the table router, I've made box joints with the table saw.
I've make more jigs than I can count for both.

They all work to varying degrees with pine.
But I can't get a decent box joint with oak.
I think it's because pine is soft enough that nothing really needs to be perfect.
It can be a mil off here or there, and it all just mushes together when you tap it together with a mallet.

With pine it's close enough, but oak is like working with hardened steel.

Hey lads

I literally have kilometers of 130mm O/D polypipe to cut into various short lengths. Traditionally it's been cut using handheld wood saws but like I said there is kilometers of it.

I was thinking perhaps a mitre saw however I'm having dramas finding one that can cut that diameter and a steel drop saw has a high potential for blade failure due to clogging and overheating.

What to do??

If there's a rat's nest of wires in there, there might be some crosstalk going on that's throwing things off. Clean it up, maybe add some grounded aluminum foil as ghetto shielding.

Without a scope, only other thing I can suggest is adding some LC filtration in addition to the normal bypass cap.
>>
>>1087879
It is a rats nest, but it doesn't corrupt unless I rev the motors, and if I use a different blaster with the same kind of motors, and rev it right next to it, it also is unaffected, so I didn't think it needed shielding.

Perhaps I need a bypass cap on the arduino battery pads also? Although I thought it already had one.


By LC filter, do you mean something like this?

As we all know, red loctite makes it so that bolts are impossible to remove without the application of heat. To do so otherwise you risk the likelihood of rounding off the corners or even twisting the head of the bolt right off.

The purpose of anaerobic threadlockers is to prevent fasteners from loosening themselves through vibration or shock, and to a lesser extent, protect threads from corrosion and galling. That being said, are there any real situations where red must be used over the blue? I can't really think of any. I have a bottle of red that I only ever...

I'll preface this by telling you this: don't fucking do it. It's cool when you're in junior high, but then you grow up and realize you've got a shitty tattoo that you need to deal with. You absolutely will regret it. The only tattoos I have that I regret are the ones I did myself.

That being said, here's how I did it:

You need:
A pencil (un-sharpened)
A sewing needle
Some thread
India ink

Simply use the thread to fasten the needle to the end of the pencil, leaving about 1/2-3/4" sticking past the end of the...

Alternatively use a chopstick with preferably a crack in it to fit the pin into. Chopsticks tend to be thinner than pencils and allow for greater accuracy.

Also dude I know the feeling, made my own prison style tattoo gun out of an alarm clock, phone cable, electric toothbrush, a pen and some sweatbands. It was crude but it did the job, filled in my tattoo's nicely. I acknowledge my own design was shit in comparison to professional standards but I still felt a sense of pride.
Shit was cash.

My wife and I are thinking of buying a Dyson Cinetic canister vac.

Should I bite? Everyone I know who has a Dyson swears by them. I don't want to deal with shit like bags, ongoing maintenance costs, or inferior suction/dust gathering ability. Though the vacuum mafia declares brands like Miele, Riccar and Kirby are superior, they actually cost more and require bags.

I have a Bissell 1646 PowerGlide Pet Vacuum. I've been very happy with it. It has some minor flaws but its also only $110 on Amazon right now, which is about $15 cheaper then when I bought it.

How would I go about fortifying a house in Detroit so I could feel safe going to work an hour and a half away

I was kind of thinking of buying a house in Detroit because they are so incredibly cheap even when they were built very recently.


I found a 3 bedroom 2 bath, built in 2001 with a finished basement for 40K. In fact there are a lot, Mostly bank owned.


I live about an hour from Detroit now but in a very good neighborhood.


How would I go about fortifying it?


>one of the more rural parts of Detroit....

Depends on what part of detroit to be honest.

Fencing, run of the mill security systems, wifi stuff so you can record movement and check on the place from your phone. I spend a decent amount of time there and there are areas it seems like nothing would matter in, as you won't get cops anywhere near it in less than a half an hour.

Bars on windows would probably do the trip for the most part though if it's getting shit stolen that you're worried about.

Easiest way would be to give it wheels.

That way, you can tow it out of Detroit.

Figured this would be the best place for this thread, not exactly DIY though.

I got a new job recently, where I was expecting to do marine electrical work, but the owner of the company heard that I used to run a few different cnc machines and wants me to learn how to run pic related, made in 1998.

Cast iron frame 3 axis router, 8 magazine auto tool changer, pneumatically stabilized spindle, vac table, made in 1998. 7" CRT display.

Far beyond what I used to run (8 foot by 8 foot plasma cutter table, 1 foot by 1 foot desktop mill, 3d printers, etc.).

I'm fishing for good advice and resources on learning how to control this thing.

My biggest fear is the zero point getting out of whack/tool calibrations, resulting in a head crash.

Machine will be used to cut foam core and solid carbon fiber pieces for boat building (Using an extremely interesting diamond bit).

Company uses Rhino and a custom cable to drip feed the machine, since it is so old. Apparently it was being run off of an ancient 8086 or something similar until recently.

>3 axis router

first, CNC routers don't normally have super tight positioning tolerances. second, FANUC control is a FANUC control. as long as you are good with the CAM software (i've never used rhino) you should be okay.

is it a custom post processor or just a generic router one?

i pray you have the manual somewhere.
