So for Christmas I want to make my girlfriend a nice wooden box for her to put special things in, memorabilia and all that junk. Something like pic related. Probably not as nice as I am new to wood working.
Can someone help me out on how to get started doing something like this?
>>907909 Measure twice, cut once. Dry fit it before gluing and screwing. Clamps, motherfucking clamps for days. If its small enough you can use a couple of picture frame clamps to get everything square.
OPs pic looks to be a miter joint with splines. Not a beginner joint but pretty and strong. If you have a table saw and a decent fence/jig you can cut up a nice looking box/finger joint. If you have a miter saw then stick to a miter joint.
Apologies in advance as this may not be the right place for asking this.
Started working with a hvac company at a construction site. These guys have these huge bins they take in and out through the lifts. Everytime I am in a lift with a bin my mouth goes dry for hours and I can smell oranges while near the bins.
All sort of crap goes in these bins. Saw tons of silicon tubes that were applied on tiles.
Should I need to be worried about something? No clue whats causing the dry mouth
How do you like it and how can i improve it? I put the flower in a bowl together with hot fruit sauce.This will melt the base of the flower and the flower will open itself due to the meltet base.I just try to impress a girl.(Sorry for the bad englisch, i´m not a native speaker,feel free to correct me)
>>907834 >I just try to impress a girl. English is my 2nd language too. Don't do this, it's just showing off skills you don't have. Cook her the best food you can. Women enjoy someone that can feed them tasty, different meals. Yes, presentation is nice, but show her good foods, no matter what it looks like. Ratatouille is not a beautiful dish, but it's taste can bring joy.
I tried /o/ but they keep telling me (an anon with bugger all wrench time and no real space to work) to just do an engine swap. Well, one guy does, no one else is responding. to keep this TL;DR check out the details on /o/, will repost here if and when that thread dies.
Long story short, I think it's a blown headgasket but before I commit to buying tools and parts I would like a confirm, or at least some suggestions of other things to check before I go pulling the head off. There is no... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Considering the leak appears to be at the top of the engine, would a compression test confirm that? Engine runs fine otherwise, delivers power as it should across all RPM ranges, I imagine a crack in the head/block would have an impact on that.
Hey /diy/. I want to forge a knife. I plan to use spring steel for the blade. Will a 10kg (20 pound) anvil work? Pic related. I want to build the forge from a truck bake drum. Anyone got some experiences or advice?
Other than knife forging, any Blacksmiths here? I would very much like to know about the job Salary, hours, how business is, etc. Also some weird or funny stories Shit sounds cash but I wouldnt know where to start desu baka senpai
>>907798 Use spiders instead. They are easier to keep and feed and harvest from. Find the biggest spider you can in your area and start harvesting it. If you want it to have stronger silk, feed it graphene-laced water. You'll have to make the graphene yourself, but it really isn't too difficult.
no way you're gonna find this. it'll have to be shift registers, or a bunch of different mega boards talking to each other. http://www.thekanes.org/2010/06/09/expanding-the-arduino-cheap-ways-to-add-output-pins-and-power/
or, if you want to enter the wonderful world of FPGA, you can get an Actel APA750 for about $1,000 dollars.
Hey /diy/, it's my first time posting here, I read the rules and I'm fairly sure that I'm not breaking any of them (I hope). Anyway, I'm a second year EE student, pic related is part of a project that I just finished for school (it's a temperature control circuit, nothing fancy). The thing is, I have this feeling that I'm not actually learning how to solve problems or how to come up with a solution. We're basically just copying existing designs, trying to understand how they work and why, and then we make the thing. So that is why I'd... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>907704 That's also been my experience with many forums. It's either people who have absolutely no clue or people arguing over completely irrelevant stuff because they have been arguing over the internet for years on these forums. Not my cup of tea.
the how it's supposed to work in theory is an important foundation of knowledge and a step towards design. how are you supposed to design something that you aren't sure what it's supposed to be doing in the first place? if audio is your bag, start building amps. they range from very simple to very complicated. get yourself a semiconductor textbook and stage it out and build a 10W amplifier. that will be a good use of all of the skills that you have said were relevant, and you get an amp when you're done. if you enjoy that and want something a little more...

Need some help, diy. I bought a generator on black friday. A 5000 watt champion generator. Paid a good price, 390 before tax. Its a gas generator, how can i convert it to run on propane or turn it into a tri fuel generator? http://www.ruralking.com/champion-5-000-watt-gas-powered-portable-generator-41030.html The genny.
>>907732 1. Don't care about resell value 2. If done right it has barely any loss in total capacity, it may drop down to 4500 running watts since propane burns 5-10% cooler than gas 3. Propane burns 100 times cleaner than gasoline, it will last a LOT longer, the fuel life is indefinite and I dont have to worry about the quality of the fuel 4. its 100 miles to the closest gas station that sells non ethanol gas.
>>907629 Be sure to pick a HD that can handle running for extended periods. Some (the LaCie "Designed by Porsche" drives being a good example) run so hot the drive dies after a few months.
I used to tunnel mt-daapd over SSH so I could listen to my music at work, at it worked great. I set up a dyndns service on the server so I could find it from anywhere, and used public key authentication to log in. Just make sure you keep up to date on security patches and there shouldn't be any problems. Also, Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/. I've got an old arcade cabinet with a CRT monitor that I've hooked up to a computer to play emulated games on. The problem is, the display doesn't actually... work. It's really static-y and unreadable, even though there's clearly sound and the controls make changes.
What can I do to troubleshoot this? I read somewhere that degaussing might fix it, but I've never worked with a monitor like this before. I could easily just switch to an LCD screen but I don't want to give up on this yet.
You probably have the sync ranges all jacked up. You didn't give enough information for me to think you hadn't. It sounds like you just plugged it in and expected it to work, your video card MIGHT be able to make RGB in a range that tube can use. It might not have a plug for RGB though, and you might not have the sync broken out in a way the arcade wants...
And this is just assuming it works and nothing is fried, which might not be true.
>>907605 Tell them exactly what game it's from, but because they can be swapped out for other monitors depending on who repaired it, it'd be better to open the cabinet up and try to find an actual model on the tube, and on the controller board. You'll probably have to google basic arcade machine repair, and don't touch anything on the tube, or powersupply, it can kill you. Try keeping one hand behind your back.
Hi /diy/ I'm working with gases and pneumatic tanks and I'm wondering if any of you have a lot of experience?
I want to experiment with co2 enriched horticulture.
My plan is to use a 24 oz Paintball tank with a low pressure regulator. The regulator limits the pressure coming out of the tank to 200 psi which is low enough for my electronically controlled gas solenoid to moderate. I want the solenoid to open when the co2 drops below a certain ppm. This is going to be detected using mq-135 gas sensors, one at the top of the enclosure, one at the bottom,... Comment too long.

>>907577 Its readily apparent you have no fucking clue what you're doing.
A 24oz container of CO2 will only take up 13.5cu.ft of space at room temperature and sea level.
Using this small of a tank for anything other than a single plant in a small container would be pointless.
If this is for something hobbyist related, such as a mini greenhouse or the like, you are better off using nature to raise CO2 levels. I have a 25' greenhouse that I put compost piles in during the winter. Put of plenty of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
An experiment I want to do requires me light up a box with rainbow light which has frequencies of 380nm(Upper violet) or less to over 9000nm(Room temperature infrared). It'd be most useful if it was radial, lighting up the soil with a junction between all colours at the centre and around that arcs of different colours. Preferrably, the light energy will be independent of wavelength, i.e. for every watt of violet there's a watt of red.
It's a biology experiment, I want to put a simple plant (moss or algae) in a mutagen and see if it will create a form... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>907558 that's gonna be tough... from 380 to 980 or so you could do it piecewise with LEDs and phosphors, but specific wavelength lightsources are going to add up. Above that, you may need to go incandescent and filters... and I have no idea what you will do for filtered output longer than 2000nm. You're already talking about crazy expensive optics.
Stuff like a prism is not going to be linear or usable outside of the spectrum right around visible...
