unplug. wait an hour. check capacitor voltage.

if the oven was made in the last 25 or so years the capacitor has an internal discharge resistor.

I have an old silver knife that just came into my collection and it's pretty worn or "tarnished". I'm no professional with silver but I'm pretty sure if I just cleaned it, it would just fade back

Is there anything I can do to keep its brilliance once polished? Could I do an epoxy coating?

find your nearest grocery store.

drive by in car #1 a few times, look for cameras behind the store. see where they are looking. often times they dont include the truck bay areas, only the enterences. you just want to make sure they arent looking at where the pallets are stacked

now get car number 2. take the plates off. drive down at 2am, throw the pallets in the trunk, drive off.

Okay, Okay. Good intensity. Its a step in the right direction, but are there any options that wont get me in trouble with the law?

Apply light heat until the adhesive lets up. I recommend a hair dryer on low.

If the above recommendation doesn't work, try sticking the book in the freezer and try to peel the sticker whilst it is very cold.

Some adhesives contract from their bonded surface in the cold. The best example I can think of are those used in envelope seals.

Upon taking pictures of the room, the users would select which theme they’re is looking for, and once selected the app will provide a variety of suggestions in what you'll need,...

Hey, just wondering could anyone on her help me

I recently purchased a power bank for €10/$11 and when I opened it, it's a simple circuit using and recharging a 18650 4000mAh 3.7v battery.

I have 4 other 18650 batteries and was wondering could I use the original circuit to use all 5 or would I need a step down module.

also, would the batteries have to be wired in series or parallel.

no boost/step down board required but you cant mix capacities in with lithium batteries, 4.2v is max charging voltage and min drain is down to 3.2v.

if you have 2x2000mah and 3x4000mah you're gonna damage the charging circuit and be limited to the 2000mah of the 4000 of the other 3

Hey /hvac/, I've got a mystery that only you can solve. My house gets really cold upstairs, and is hot as hell downstairs. I'm in a two story, 1400 sq ft house in Florida, with central air. We usually keep the thermostat set at 75 degrees, and while the upstairs will be a nice cool 75, the downstairs will be up at 80 with no air flow. I recently changed the filters and noticed that while the upstairs intakes (two 12x12, one 20x20) were sucking in plenty of air, the one 20x20 intake downstairs wasn't sucking in at all. Why is this happening? More importantly, what do?

Seriously, use a telescopic cam or just stick a smartphone/digicam/gopro to a firm piece of wire and check, maybe birds built a nest or whatever.

second thing - only one intake might be too weak. But at first try to check the intakes. Maybe strike up a match or something like a candle or a single spaghetti and see if it sucks in the smoke.

Hi /diy/

I'm trying to come up with a simple and relatively economical way to filter water from a river. This water will be collected in a water container and be used to shower with (not to drink) even though the water is relatively clean as far as rivers go I'd rather filter, and sterilize it first to be on the safe side.

many of the existing water filtration solutions are either for:

1) small scale wilderness/survival purposes (katadyn,sawyer,lifestraw etc)
2) large scale installations for drinking in african villages
3) home point of use drinking (e.g berkey)
4) large scale industry use

So none of those are really suitable for collecting and filtering a large amount of water. Either they're too small with a slow flow rate, or they're gigantic installations

After a bit of thinking, I figured out the most economical non chemical solution is to buy standard 10" filter kits and just repurchase when they become clogged. The workflow will be like this

1) pump water directly from a hose through sediment prefilter,
2) then through a finer filter (0.5 micron)
3) then through a UV filter, into a holding container

There's a guy here who's done a similar thing.

The pump I will be using instead is this:

The first filter says in the manual it connects directly with 1/4" plastic tubing.

The second filter seems to say it connects with 3/4" male NPT nipples.

The problem is I'm already stuck, I have no idea how to connect the hose to the respective water filters.

The closest thing I have found that looks like it might work for the second filter at least is https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hozelock-2159-9000-Adapter-hoses/dp/B0034G5NR2

But I really have no idea as it seems like most people...

A river? How the hell are you getting away with that? most rivers are highly protected by the state. Either way I would not use water from it. In my area at least they are pretty much toxic and polluted. The whole house filters you show are a good start. Creek water or rain water would be better. A sand bar or some light, easily replaced prefilter should be first. UV is a waste of power and money. Just get a 2 micron if you need to drink or eat with it.

7 KB,
So I'm at the meetup in Toronto with I Build It / John Heisz.

Thoughts? Should I ask him what he thinks of /diy/?

Told him about 4chan. Here's never heard of it.

Says he hates forums. Welp.

Nice thread. Wrapped up well. I like ones with closure.
Good thing this isn't a forum, it's an image board dedicated to Cambodian Rice Paintings.

Tell him to throw a bass in his voice. It's like listening to a palm sander when he talks.

10 KB,
A few months ago I came here looking for a chain that wasn't just loose links, but could both coil up and be rigid and straight when arranged correctly. Someone mentioned "barrel chain", but I came to the conclusion that chain of any type would be too heavy. So I'm back with a new method, using spring steel similar to a tape measure.

A tape measure will extend and stay straight for about...what 9-10 feet when used correctly? I want to make a device that could be applied as well as improve the design of a tape measure to make it extend 30 ft and stay...

If you could design it in a way that when the tape comes out of the end of your roller it is in a triangle shape, you should be able to get it to go a long distance.

>>1000231
yes i thought of that, but it needs to function from most angles. A triangular design would crimp sideways. The best design I can think of at the moment is something resembling a chinese yo yo with a coiling steel spring.
