I have acquired some relatively nice 5.1 Logitech speakers for free. They are Logitech G51 speakers. Old, yes, sound quality great. They were found and I acquired them. My problem is that my laptop only has one connector as shown in the picture. Is there an adapter for this that I had not found online; is there a way I can solder them together and produce surround sound from them that way that is effective? The tools I have are the basic workbench tools from screwdrivers to wrenches to pliers and solder irons and such. Any ideas to help me? Help me /diy/ you are my only hope.

Potter here. I've only seen a couple that I'd use outside of a joke. Not saying it can't be done, but it starts to get expensive. The only inexpensive, viable diy electric wheel motor is from a used treadmill. You need a DC motor with at least 1/3 horsepower and decent torque. If you're lucky, you can salvage the controller. Then you've gotta get a tight v-belt pulley system figured out. Anything else is not realistic on a budget and you're definitely past used professional equipment prices.

Four screws hold the arms on. Remove those and the chair is apart. Four more screws removes the base if you want to, but not necessary. Rip leather off, replace foam, staple on new fabric or leather. Done.

My chair is just like that one. An arm broke, so I bought some angle steel and 2" wide flat bar, and welded up new steel arms. Matched the shape of the original arms with the flat bar for the arm rest. Worked out nicely. I'll be redoing the seat cushion again soon. I keep this up I'll never buy another chair.

looking at picking up this lathe but I'm pretty inexperienced with lathes so I'm not sure if this would be an awful decision

it looks like I would need a new faceplate and likely need new bearings in the motors and spindle but for a 3/4 hp lathe I am really fucking tempted.

Negative. That is a crap lathe. The bed is a pipe. A SINGLE pipe at that. It will flex on you and the tail stock might even slip (depending on the design). You want a cast bed. Also, the motor is lying to you about its power output. It is probably somewhere around 1/2 HP, and maybe not even that. If it's inefficient, which is likely because it is Taiwanese garbage, it is probably closer to 1/3rd HP.

I'm planning to do up a tankard in a steampunk style, and I'll need to paint it to get the right look. I was planning on using spray paint, but I'm not sure how safe it would be, and whether the paint would wash off in warm, soapy water. I need to paint it and seal it, but I've really got no idea where to start. I would need some kind of sealing clear coat over the top of it to make it safe to wash and drink from, but I know basically nothing about paints... What do?

why not? as long as they're metal springs sure

however depending on how rigid they are you might break the led right off trying to flick it and make it wabble

also with a structure like your pic theres no clue how malleable the end result will actually be, i would guess the corners might move a bit but its still going to be a pretty sturdy, solid piece

the denser the coils (within a single spring and from spring to spring) the more rigid the end result is going to be

Solder isn't that strong or flexible. If you start pushing on a structure of springs held together with solder it's going to fall apart right away.

What's the best way to sell a bunch of tools?

I have a ton of quality tools that I've gathered from yard sales and shit that I don't need (duplicates of stuff I have). I need some cash and want to get rid of them. It seems the eBay isn't really that great with all the fees and shipping. The local flea market costs way too much for a spot: a $40 spot eats significantly into profit.

Selling as a lot means I won't even make my money back. So no craigslist.

How should I go about selling my stuff?

I buy tools and shit all the time. Moistly woodworking stuff. I've seen people sell small lots (think near complete wrench sets, socket sets, etc) and individual tools on CL. Really, though, you have eliminated all of your options. Of course, you could just have yourself your own garage sale. That's what I did to get rid of spares. Put ads on CL for a tools sale, Saturday only, took some good pictures and had everything out on tables. A fair number of people showed up and I sold about half my stuff.

>I only have name brand shit that i'm trying to get rid of
If those name brands are Husky, Kobalt, any Craftsman made in the last 30 years or some other 'store brand' you might as well shit can them. Anyone wanting quality tools won't want them and anyone wanting cheap tools can get similar quality at Harbor Freight and have a lifetime return policy.

If its Snap-On, MAC. Proto, Blackhawk, etc then you might be able to move them but, again, not anywhere near what they sold for new.

Do I go with a 12v charger and charge each pair of batteries in parallel, or do I get a 48v charger? I don't have a huge budget for this project, but I'll spend up to $60 for a charger alone. (also; is the amp-rating of a charger indicate the amp hours it puts out or something else?)

I would take your slave batteries first to an auto store. Get them tested for wear a tear. Refill and replace if advised to.

Eight twelve volt batteries in parallel would give twelve volts... What you are probably looking at is eight batteries hooked up to a charge controller. It is never advised to hook up solid lead acid batteries directly to each other in either parallel or series.

If your having a problem getting a complete circuit try testing the controller and the wiring that connects to the controller.

Forgot to ask, what is that rod thing called, is there a better option of doing what I want to do ie having some metal hold these two pieces together, and should I abandon the idea and settle for screwing right through both pieces with a power drill and a thin screw

That option makes it look ugly though

Epoxy. Scrape off any super glue still on it, and use a two part epoxy.

>Epoxy
never used the stuff

Would that be tougher than cyanoacrylate?

Any way i can make a simple at home pestle and mortar? I wanted to crush up some pills and it'll make it easier to take. Read somewhere to place them in a baggy and smash them up good with a hammer. Thanks in advance.

Want to know everything there is to know about this subject. the does and don't, perhaps some good tutorial etc. I gladly accept all helpfull knowledge.

Need to place a lot of new wiring in this old house but I'm a poorfag.
I would say I'm intermediate when it comes to experience. But of course I want to do it securely and safe. Luckily I have a lot of patience to learn and never do anything diy until I know everything there is to know about it.
And before someone points it out, no I'm unable to take a course on it sense work keeps me occupied at the moment

Look at the code in your area. That is the minimum level of safety you need to build to. Done. You want to put in some fancy stuff or nice features? Thats a different story. For safety though, the code is a a great place to start.

OP that's not Saint Pepsi, that's MOON MAN!

That's Moonman, the leader of the Triple K Mafia, but he sometimes goes by the alias of Mac Tonight according to my top secret contacts in various 3 letter agencies. You might have better luck finding a design using one of those names. Your best bet would probably be making it out of foam board, or some resin re-enforced paper. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a moon mask papercraft that could be modified, so you would probably need to find either a face mask to modify, or start from scratch. After...

This fits into many categories but /diy/ is the best place for advice and tips. My friends and I are trying to start a show/ colony preferably better than the current ones available. I doubt any crowed funding site will allow us. But never the less I'm hear for advice, tips and hints.

Also please add survival, homesteading and helpful /diy/ info graps or project ideas.

Well we are hoping to start with basic tools, some firearms, food for about 3-6 months and a boat to travel to neighboring port for trading. The main problem is the funding and support from volunteers. We're hoping to get about a hundred. .
