>>1078489 What type of base does it have? ie B22 E27.
Just get one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Edison-Screw-Light-Frosted/dp/B01HZRNFJ8 it will provide plenty of light for a dark room, I have a 75w LED equivalent in my dining room and it provides plenty of light.
So, i have one of those 50cc 2-stroke bicycle motors. It has magneto and that's what gives coil energy to generate spark. Do you guys think there is enough energy to spare some of it on transformer+voltage regulator for simple tasks like LED lights or maybe even something heavier like USB charging? Is magneto energy even consistent enough to not overheat voltage regulator on entire RPM range?
What you want is a second charging coil and a battery. These are common on ride on mowers etc. One problem they have is they deliver power in pulses as the magnet passes so you will need something to smooth this out like a battery.
>>1078040 > export the data onto an electronic interface What do you mean by that? You can already got the data on your PC from the RS232->USB adapter. Why would you add the extra step of putting it on Telnet through a Raspberry Pi?
About how much would it cost to take the layout of a double wide trailer and build a home with standard house building materials?
I own 0.8 acres of land in the city suburb. Was going to buy a Clayton double wide for $68K to put on it but the city doesn't allow manufactured homes.
What are my options now? I don't have much money and buying a log cabin kit would look funny in a city suburb. Is there anything I can do with the land to make extra money to save to build a real house? I only have ~$110K.
>>1077821 Where I live $110k would build you a nice 2-3 bedroom home with a garage if you already own the land. If, for some reason, that is not enough just build a 'mother in law' unit and garage first.
I've seen some very nice 2 car garages with a one bedroom on top. Or, if you have the space, you can do a garage with the unit on the side. Either way, you can live there until you save up more money to build 'the house' and then rent out the other unit.
Anybody here have experience Waterproofing a basement? I'm renovating a 60 year old house with a cinder block foundation. On a slope, the uphill side seeps water into the basement through the mortar during torrential rains.
I called a basement waterproofer, who came and checked it out. Gave me a list of things to try before he dug up the outside of the foundation. Since then I have >Put covers on basement window wells >Cleared downspout drainage >Sealed driveway expansion... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1077815 This is the product I'm thinking of using, a cement parge that is apparently good to 200psi. I'd buy enough to apply to the whole of the uphill interior foundation, in case the water wants to seep in elsewhere.
Hey /diy/nosaurs. I saw a few infinity mirrors that looked pretty cool and wanted to try a starter project with a small table. I'm pretty happy with the results and I'll post a few pics here and try to get a gif.
Ask any questions and I'll try to answer them best as possible.
What are the basics behind this project? Its an interesting concept. I currently work at a glass shop so I have access to all kinds of mirror/glass/plexi/ lexan. I also have a working knowledge on electronics and carpentry so I don't think thus would be real difficult for me to build. I currently have a 42" Samsung plasma TV taken apart and being used as a table top. I could just use the frame from the TV and install my own glass and leds into it
So for the last 3 years, there has been a piece of wire dangling from the hallway ceiling. I can't even remember why, there used to be a working light there, but when the bathroom was renovated in 2013, it suddenly ended up as a dangling wire with no light on the end.
So today I ask my uncle to come around who is an electrician to fit the light pendant in and when he strips the wire hanging from the ceiling he says it is only contains live and earth, with no neutral. He said there might be another neutral wire under the floorboards next to it that isn't being... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm finishing a DIY arcade stick. It's made of cherry wood, and I just put on two coats of Danish oil. The color looks great, but I want to give it a high gloss finish.
What would be a reasonable choice here? Can I just brush on several coats of poly? Should I use lacquer? I do know that the Danish oil needs to be fully cured, so I won't do this for at least another week. I would rather avoid epoxys.
>>1067715 Tru-Oil by Birchwood Casey. It's also a natural oil, so it will bond with the Danish you already applied. However it hardens to a solid coat unlike most other oils. This'll let you sand > reocat> sand > recoat as desired. With good enough sanding (600+ grit) and enough coats you can get it looking like glass if you wanted, or just stop when satisfied.
Note, wipe on the coats gently and don't rub them in, natural wood finishes will dissolve the coat underneath. Sometimes this is good (easy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ok so I am doing a Proposal at the Moment to Elio Motors to Produce an Electric Variant of their Vehicle in my Country. Don't ask why I just thought it was a good Idea. Basically I am in need of some number Crunching. The Motor attached to my post is rated at 50kw maximum output, with a safe operational speed of 25kw. What I need to know is will this be sufficient to propel the 3 Wheeled Elio in a Economical yet Sporty Way? The Specs of the Elio are as follows.
"The design specification includes a target curb weight of 1,350 lb (610 kg); three-wheel anti-lock... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay,so, I've never been to this board before. I'm not terribly technologically inclined person. But I have a problem that MAYBE someone here could assist with.
Pictured to the left is Thinkgeek's original Iron Man LED T-shirt. For those unfamiliar, there's a little disk that sits in a pocket on the inside chest of the shirt, producing the effect of having an ARC reactor in your chest, pretty close to identically as it looks in the movies.

Hey guys, so i live on the second story of an apartment building and my cat has recently started jumping up oon the handrail, and as ive seen his slip into the toilet a few times, I wanna make it to where he can't just up there without my apartment getting upset with things I add. Thoughts?
OP here, I have the ugliest, noisiest, stinkiest 1996 Chevrolet S10. Paid $2500 for it 6 months ago, because I had no other options. But hey, it gets me from home to college. That is what I need it to do for the next 6 years.
1996 Chevrolet S10 Extended Cab. 2.2L 4-cylinder motor. Manual transmission. 185,xxx miles
It leaks oil bad, but never leaves it under the truck so I assume it is leaking onto the hot exterior of the motor and burns off. (I breathe in these fumes when driving, though you can really only smell it when you come to a complete... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to make a 3lb combat robot with a flamethrower. I know fire isnt' very effective, but I want this bot is mostly for show.
So what parts do I need? If I were to guess, I'd say: -disposable butane tank -a nozzle-to-threaded adapter like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00U2B7UYQ/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza -a shutoff valve that would attach to ^ -a solenoid valve that can handle the psi of the canister. 50psi? -some kind of small metal tube the fire would exit from
Am I on the right track here? Links to parts would be fantastic
>>1068680 I want to use hydrogen as the lifting gas as helium is running out and expensive aswell as the fact that I will be using the blimp to transport items. In order to hold hydrogen, I would need a material that won't let the small hydrogen atoms escape.
Ok so i was going to make a portable emulator nes snes gb gbc gba gamecube wii ps1 2 and p. Pretty simple right? I have the emulators and roms on a 1tb external. So my plan was rasperry pi 3, battery pack, screen built into a breifcase with sensors controllers. Ok so my question is can a pi run wii games on dolphin or will i need to start soldering ram and graphics cards onto it? Also if it gets ridiculous im considering buying a cheap laptop or tablet, what sort of requirements will it need? Dont need internet or any of that shit. Purely an emulator
What CAD software do most of you guys use for most of your Robotics projects? Do you just fuck around with parts? Do you make a quick sketch? I used to use Inventor as a student but Solidworks looks pretty good too.
I will always live and die by solidworks. I literally have tens of thousands of hours in SW so I might be a little bias. I've tried most of the big name CADs out there and I always find myself going back to SW.
>>1077893 you can convert parts into a special file format and get them 3D printed by uploading them to the printer You can create drawings using every part and have them machined. If you have a shop, you can do it yourself
What glue / epoxy coul I use to make laminated blocks of paper could be worked on to make rings like these -> http://littlefly.co.uk ?
I tried regular paper glue without many hopes and indeed it failed, it has too much moisture which makes the paper wrinky, also doesnt see to reinforce the block much. There are some examples of other people online trying to replicate it, but the results are wayyyy shittier than what the guy in the link does.
