Is there any way to DIY these Pur water filter replacement filters? Cant I just open up the one i have now and change whatever shit is in it?
I live in an apartment and the water from the faucet tastes like ass but we cant install one of those built-in filters or below-the-sink filtration systems so this is really all we're left with, but these replacement filters cost like $5 each and only last six weeks or so
>>902189 Don't listen to this anon unless you want to get sick.
Your best bet would be to replace the activated charcoal granules inside with - you guessed it - more activated charcoal granules. If you don't have activated charcoal available to you, you can try powdered regular-charcoal, it's just not going to last as long.
So I finaly found a use for an old HDD-Motor I salvaged once. Now I need to actually drive it. Of course I could buy an ESC to do the job, but at that point I could also just buy a propper RC motor. So I still got the curcuit board of the HDD and found the driver. Its http://www.littlediode.com/datasheets/pdf/Datasheets-L62/L6232B.PDF My aproach would be disconnecting the LIN Vref and/or PWM Vref pin/s while leaving everything else connected and inputting my own speed via either voltage or PWM. Do you see anything obviously wrong with that?
Upon closer Inspection it seems like 6 pins are used for commutation and thereby control the speed. Those 6 pins are connected to a WD61C12-WM which seems to do more than just controling the motor speed. Guess I hit a dead end here. Any easier ways to drive an HDD motor?
>>902044 >The commutation sequence is provided by the user via six inputs In other words, you would need a microcontroller to cycle the IN pins to make the motor spin.
Something like the following does the commutation sequence automatically: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/drv11873.pdf
There are Chinese boards based on that or similar parts: - Control by pot: http://www.ebay.com/itm/5V-12V-DC-Brushless-Motor-Driver-Board-Controller-for-Hard-drive-motor-3-4-wire-/181924211939 -... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>902042 in an industrial setting PCBs are actually washed in baths of soap and other funky stuff so it's not a troll however, you have to consider that soap leaves residues not really a problem if you have one of those chemicals that is specifically meant to remove soap residue from surfaces or distilled water to wash it down after the soap does it's stuff or just use isopropanol, ethanol or any other readily available alcohol instead and call it a day hell, i've even used acetone.. after convincing...

Does princess auto still sell surplus window motors? I need several of them for a project but I don't see them on the website. The nearest store is two hours away and I don't want to go there for nothing.
I'm trying to setup a virtual machine of Ubuntu for school and its going well.........at least up until the part where a section of the screen to the right is missing and I cannot hit the next button to finish installing it
Is there any way to fix this or did I do something wrong while installing the whole VMware?
>>901917 It'll be something wrong with Ubuntu, not something wrong with VMWare.
If it were Windows, you could just tab around the dialogue and press the button even though it's offscreen. Linux has historically been terrible for keyboard accessibility, and I doubt it's improved much, but you could give it a go. Alternatively, why not use the console-mode installer? Even Ubuntu can't fuck that up.
Why are you doing the setup by hand and not using VMWare's Express Install, anyway? Alls you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /adv/, does anybody have experience making a bed that they'd like to share? My cabin has an 8x8 room which will be the bedroom. I like big beds and there couldn't be jack of floorspace anyway in an 8x8 room so what I plan to do is have the whole room a bed (that lifts up for storage underneath) How would one go about making a bed? One that lifts up for storage underneath, at that. I imagine I'll probably have to have the mattress custom made since 8x8 is even bigger than a california king. Bedmaking thread!
Where i live theres a mattress company that makes all the mattresses they sell to the public. Extremely high quality, and pretty reasonable prices too compared to the name brands being sold by third parties.
They made a custum bed for me to fit this oooollld mahagony bed frame i got at auction that was between a full and queen size. The owner came out to my place to double check my measurements. Delivered it three days later personally to check the fit himself. All for the same price as an equivalent featured serta
acetone (which is what's usually in nail polish remover) should dissolve superglue, but it will also dissolve many plastics. If it didn't dissolve you might have polish remover that has low or no acetone content.
Hey guys I've got a problem with my water heater tripping a breaker in the breaker box. When we first discovered this, we flipped the breaker back and it stayed on, the water heater started running again and after about 20 minutes it kicked the breaker again. At this point it kicks off immediately after flipping it on. Does this sound like a Tstat issue?
Are water heaters something that I should call an electrician or a plumber for? I talked to 2 electricians (who didn't come out), one said it was probably an element going bad while the other suggested a problem... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can anyone on here help me fix my dryer? I've got a kenmore elite that seems to have a short somewhere in it. I'll be posting some pictures and a short video as well. I am no electrician, but I imagine if someone were to assist me in the process I might be able to figure this out.
I was thinking of getting some rope, a carabiner, and making myself a rope harness. I used to climb, so I know how to use them, it's just that rope is $120, and I have no idea where to buy rope/carabiners in the US locally.
>>901745 Cheap you seals. Have someone come and do some kind of pressure test, I forget what its called. It will tell you if your house has air leaking in. Find where the leaks are and seal that shit up.
