Hello /diy/, almost total newbie here. Can anyone give me some hints to disassemble safely a microwave oven? I would like to salvage some components. Feel free to insult, though. Pic unrelated. [spoiler]inb4 "Boy, sure it's Summer!"[/spoiler]
Hey, /diy/ I want to do a lot of stuff with shipping pallets. I want to do some flooring with them and make some cheap furniture out of it. My question is HOW do I get a hold of them? Where do you guys find them or get them from? >inb4 http://www.1001pallets.com/pallet-classified-ads/ I tried and there was nothing near me.
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.
>>998782 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? Paying bail on "shipping pallet theft" isnt the coolest way to go down. I could murder a man on the way there, I guess, but its not exactly what I am after. I appreciate the idea though.
What is the easiest way to start brewing alcohol? Doesn't matter the type, beer wine cider, anything. Just something that doesn't taste like shit and gets me drunk. I don't have enough room for a still or anything, I need something cheap and easy.
>>1001342 Put it in vice. Spray with wd40 to appease machine spirits. Clean the shit out of the hex head. Take hex tool of correct size. Hammer, literally with a hammer, tap it into the socket. Unscrew Those don't look that bad at all.
Where is his PPE? Smoking with loose wood. Eyes closed while working. Not looking at what he is doing. Wrong tool for the job due melting of the rod. Hat obscuring good light. Some kind of odd muscular disease probably shouldnt be using tools at all. Maybe cancer on the bicep.

Hey bros, checkout my idea for an app I came up with:
An app/website that’ll help you decorate your room/house to any style of living that you're seeking. The user would simply take a few pictures of the room (perhaps a picture in each corner of the room), and the app would then suggest where furniture you’d need and where it should be placed, for superior comfortability.
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,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I was helping my parent's clean out a shed that isn't used as much and I found an old cabinet toolbox that I had never seen before and when I asked my dad about it he said it was his dads who gave it to me and that he was planning on giving it to me when I finished college but that I could have it now and take it back up this fall. Anyway it's twice as old as I am and has some surface rust and lots of scratches and minor repairs that need done. But I was thinking of changing the color from almost a safety red to some shade of blue, or should I keep it the same... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>1001062 There are roughly 2 gazillion ways to make small boxes. Hinges/no hinges, dovetailed vs at least four other ways to join the sides, at least three ways to put a bottom on it, the same for the top... Not even trying to be a dick, but the question is way more vague than you might think, OP.
Now, the last one I made I dovetailed the sides by hand, used a rabbit for the bottom, hinged a simple flat top (with a chamfer), and made my own closure hardware out of brass (basically hook and eye). It was walnut for the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1001089 Dovetails are suppose to be hidden as they are traditionally ugly... And modern glues where not yet invented. And nails where expensive for large stuff. Look at any fine furniture pre modern nails.. All the really good stuff hides dovetail joints at all cost. Its also the reason blind dovetails where ever created. Please stop the dovetail meme.
>>1001089 >used a rabbit for the bottom Gotta love a fur-lined box. And yes, I am aware that you meant rabbet. Unless you meant dado, which is what I'd have probably used if there's going to be any kind of weight in the box.
>>1001025 Nah Im a millennial I usually research and buy online craigslist is closest I get to physically buying these kinds of things..(any purchase that is above $20) Are they mailbox letters or something? Ill go tomorrow check em out
I have no idea why, but the general vicinity I live in is full of old, large, broken TVs in alleyways. In the last 2 days I've found 3. What can I salvage other than resistors and capacitors? Pic semi-related; phone camera is a shit and can't take half-decent photos
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?
Oh and the thermostat is upstairs which I'm sure has something to do with something. Seems like a weird place for it since the only thing upstairs is the kids' bedrooms... Why would they put the thermostat upstairs?
>>998534 Like anon said you've missed the time when you'd need a greenhouse.
You could still go and build the frame and cover it with some shade cloth for a shady place to hang out in. Then when winter rolls around throw some clear plastic and boom - your shade structure is now a greenhouse.

If you live in an area where you can do it sneaky-like, mini-hydro is probably the BEST way to generate electricity off the grid. --Under ideal conditions (a small, rocky shallow stream) constructing a partial dam is easy, just by re-arranging some rocks --A relatively small device can produce a relatively large amount of power --Power level is very consistent and runs 24/7
You can also build it on a floating platform and anchor... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Soap and water (Make sure the knob is in "spray" in which it scatters so you can shoot them. Be sure you hit the head and abdomen with the soap and water in the bottle, if successful, they can die in almost a minute.
"The soapy water kills them by forming a thin film over the roach's breathing pores that stays in place due to surface tension, causing the roach to suffocate. Throw the roach away as soon as possible, since it could recover if the water dries up or has not touched a large... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Well, I was a former exterminator, professional extermination tools is a last resort if there's a big amount, but if it's a small case scenario, then soda traps with soap and water taped together can do, OP needs to be more specific on how many roaches he/she has in the house, there's no number.
Hey Anon's, I have a question about a LG window AC and figured I would try here.. does anybody know the thread size of the drip fitting/plug that sticks out the back? I need a replacement and want to get the right size and add some tubing to it.
Stupid question I know, I Googled and couldn't find shit. Thanks
>>1000688 I tried a 1/4 thread fitting and it was to small, somebody said it might be 3/4''. I need to stop the leaking soon it's pissing all over the place and my neighbor is going to start bitching again
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
>>1000490 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.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>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.
