Hi /diy/
I asked this question on /g/ but they sent me here because they thought y'all might be more knowledgeable on the subject
I'm a frequent of /k/ wondering about comms and how they work.
I was thinking about getting a short band radio to communicate with some buddies while innawoods to "train" But I realized I know nothing about them and wouldn't know the first thing about buying one- SO

How does a short band radio work?
Would a CB suffice for a guerrilla force attempting to operate against a much larger/well equipped military?

There are commercial off the shelf items you can buy with encryption. Look for digital radios, analog is not encryptable unless you cypher it somehow.

Of course this being /diy/ I have to suggest a /diy/ solution which would be software defined radio. Can do analog or digital on the fly and you can choose your own encryption or modulation. Not really something for a casual user but there are some pre builts that probably have enough documentation for someone to use

1. Get in with your local hams. Yes, you have local hams, and they can tell you all about the radio netwrok that exists around your locality and how not to inadvertantly infringe upon it, which could result in fines. Get your ham operator licence.
2. If you invest in something with off the shelf encryption, ensure that the encryption is actually secure/programmable, not something that can be googled or is found in the equipment's manual.

>How does a short band radio work?
By short band, do you mean UHF or VHF or what?
>Would a CB suffice for a guerrilla force attempting to operate against a much larger/well equipped military?
You could communicate with each other, but everybody would be able to hear you
>Is it possible/easy to encrypt a CB to prevent unwanted listeners?
It's possible, but I'm pretty sure it's illegal, although the FCC doesn't give a flying fuck about what happens on CB...

I'm interested in woodwork and have a few projects I would like to start in my home as practise to really get into it.
I have experience with saw machines.
I would like to make furniture and other small things.
What machines and handtools are a complete must for starting my own hobby workshop in my garage?
Also what are good brands?
I already own a hand saw, every type of "bolt/screw turner" you can think of, hammers etc. Also the only machine I currently own is a sandpaper machine and a drilling machine(it's shit though and I need a replacement)

Hello, /diy/.

I'm making a project where I'll be using a lot of 3W LEDs, from various colours. As so, each colour have a different tension to be used. I will not buy a LED driver module, so I decided to build something similar to the pic related here. I was drawing mine, but I ran out of time.

Anyway, the question is: I want to adjust the brightness of all LEDs together, but every colour is under a different tension, controlled by an LM317 (or some similar, doesn't matter for the question).

Does a simple potentiometer before the regulators...

Seriously, did you even read the datasheet? The circuit for an lm317 current regulator contains the lm317 itself and a single potentiometer. Just adjust the potentiometer to adjust the current.
>>
>>999577

No, my dear friend. You are the one that didn't read what I said.

The potentiometer that you are referring to is the one to correct the tension of the output of the LM317. I am aware of it, and that is exactly why I am using these.

My question is, considering the LM317 adjusted to 2,6V, another one to 3,6V and other 3 to 4,1V, how could I control the intake current of all of them together, so all the LEDs are regulated together, from zero volts to the desired tension adjusted on the LM317.
>>
>>999577

Better yet. The circuit in your image. I want to control the intake of various of them together. Think about 5 of those in your image, each one with a different setting on the potentiometer shown.

From zero to the desired tension, of all of them. This is the question. Simply putting a potentiometer before them? (before the intake?)

I want to add chicken wire to the bottom of our garage side door to keep any animals out.

We are cleaning our garage and our side door that we are blocking with a shelf has a 3-4 inch gap on the bottom for safety (exhaust buildup, etc). We were given a roll of chicken wire and were told that we should attach it to the bottom of the door to keep any rats, possums, etc out.

But I'm in a bind as to how to do this because I'm a moron. Would I want to glue the wire to the door? Are there bolts to bolt it on? And would i just leave it hanging on the bottom,...

Use 1/4" hole Hardware Cloth wire not, chicken wire. Chicken wire is the worst shit ever and rusts out inside of two years. Use screws with large washers to install it. If you are drilling into metal, use self-tapping screws.

So I got this Briggs and Stratton 3.5HP engine with a vertical shaft from a lawnmower. I would use it for a project like a kart or drift trike but then my best option is to convert it to a horizontal shaft. As I don't have a lot of experience with fabricating, I'm looking for other ideas. The thing is, I can't get that thing off where the blade is supposed to be connected to. So I can't really use 45 degree gears.

So my question: what do I do?

You're kinda fucked mate. The gearbox or whatever contraption you fabricate to turn that into a horizontal will be more of a headache than selling the one you have and buying the right one.

Many people have tried. Few have succeeded. Check out gokarting forums. I have a kart and I have a horizontal shaft engine.
>>
>>999164
This.
Its not worth the time, effort, money, or weight to build a gearbox for it. And a gearbox is the only way you would be able to do it.

Cut your losses and get another motor. Also realize that a go kart will nickel and dime the fuck out of you, so the motor is not necessarily the biggest expense.

Ok so my good ol' recliner is showing its age. The Mechanics and fabric are fine as I do my best to keep them in nice working order and clean.

I want to do this, but without getting a piercing or magnetic implants. If I put a little neodymium magnet on each side of the nose, would the attraction be strong enough to hold the glasses on through the bridge of a nose?

It might work, but if the magnets were strong enough they could cause damage to the nose bridge. I would look into finding something to modify the nose piece so it would hold onto the bridge of the nose rather than trying to use magnets.

Ride often and commit to a high protein diet, this is more of a /fit/ problem.
You can't make the bike to be more "powerful", unless you use motors, you can switch to a lower gear but the muscle power it is the same for the same distance. Maybe add a third wheel to reduce the effort to maintain the bike stable.

Trying to improve a bike is like trying to improve a spoon, you can change the design, but you're left with the same thing.

Found this Cypress plank from the mid eighteen hundreds in the wash up line of our recent thousand year flood in the southeast. Other than the obvious and giving it a good coat of lacquer and leaving a little bit of patina, what would be some other ideas for this beautiful piece? Will check back after work on my lunch break now thanks in advance for any input.

How third world of a country do you have to live in to grab a big stick and throw it in your car and call it a project?

That being said, it is remarkably straight. Some nice stain on that and maybe a rod through it and a nice square mount might look pretty nice on a wall.mits a bit big to be vertical' but horizontal over a television might look good.

If you have televisions where you live.

I'm just fucking sick of these arcade pushbuttons. Really, they look fucking ugly and are shit to use.

Has anyone ideas how one could make nice pads like on Pioneer DDJ.

you may have to post a link to the actual model you are talking about

If you just want nicer buttons, then use PC keyboard buttons.

Would be perfect if they wouldn't be so high, from videos I can tell they have a stability problem

see pic related, all the ddj have similar push buttons accross models. I guess the large performace pads are silicone and the play, cue and onther buttons are plastic with thin flexible frame, pushing on the tactile buttons on PCB.

Hello! Not sure if this would be better posted in /k/ so feel free to tell me to fuck off elsewhere. I've recently started a new job as a maintenance fitter/engineer at a big plant that produces pre-cast concrete products. I'm looking for a multitool I can keep in my coverall pocket for quick fixes whilst doing my rounds of the plant. Multitool based on a plier design would be preferable. What do you guys reccomend?

Tldr: best multitool for maintenance fitter/engineer

Tungsten is impossible to work with, especially so when it is allready in a specific shape.

My best bet is to sell it, or use the thing... must be a fantastic crucible.

I'm so sick and tired and creeped out by all the bugs and rats and other critters that live in my crawlspace. Also, the space under my shed has become a breeding ground for rabbits and other vermin.

What is the most powerful poison a layperson can buy? I want to kill everything that lives down there, so I want a good all-purpose poison that is simply incompatible with all forms of animal life. What are my best options?

Not exactly the greatest idea, but various gases are used for that and at least in some countries some of them are sold to normal people. Phosphine is one of the more popular options. A more diy option would be carbon dioxide, but I don't know how practical it actually is, since it's just an asphyxiant.
The thing is that you need to bag everything so that the gas stays there and...

I found an abandoned hobo mudhut in the woods

For an experiment, I wanna do really primitive upgrades to it, stuff so cheap it isn't gonna get nicked. Stuff that a backpacker would appreciate if he spends the night travelling through.

Any advice?

a ventilated fireplace/stove would be my first pick. You can make one out of a paint can and a coffee tin.

Go to a car boot sale and pick up some old woodworking tools

Then start building shit at the location. Chair or two, Bed frame. Plug up holes. Put down a wood floor for starters

build a wood stove for heating and cooking, collect cans to tunnel the smoke out

find some cheap long candles and mount them around the place.

How would I approach making my own portable flag pole that's
A. Under $13
Then
B. Disposable
Or
C. Collapsible in a way that wouldn't make it a weapon

I'm going to a Trump rally this Friday and it's going to involve a lot of waiting initially so I bought a 3x5 Gadsden flag to wave while I fend off protestors at the gate, but once I get to the front of the line TSA will be confiscating any thing that could be a weapon, any ideas?

Collapsible tent pole.

Selfie stick, put a go-pro on the top and get some hip footage.

Or do the classic and buy a festival flag pole for less than €10.
