Routering panels for my bench and I got a new raised panel bit but its fighting me every turn.

I needed more lip to carry the panel in the dado, so I removed sealed ball bearing to gain some room.

Set up is still eluding me and I wrecked a spare panel I glued but replaced due to it being cupped.

Help me 4chan, your my only hope.

I am using a router table with an insert and this limits how far up the bit can extend. The bit is for 3/4" panels so not sure how Im fucking this up.

If you've removed the bearing, you can grind the neck of the screw shaft down to a level of the router kives or lower...this will allow you to run past the center point of the bit...jig up a fence to run your panel against...make multiple passes as this can and will kill the router...

Hope this helps...
Have you tried just buying a larger router, or perhaps an extension. imho that bit is not sharp.
Lol lower the router depth for more room??
Or make a quick new insert for the router table for the distance you need. Just grab plywood, make a shell deep enough for however much you want the bit to show and cut it.

Hello /diy/

So I recently made the acquisition of pic related, which is an adapter for a 9.7" LCD panel.

It needs 5V 1.37A so I'm currently using a 2A USB phone charger to power it since I read 3.0 USB deliver up to 0.9A and 2.0 USB 0.5A

So here's my question, since you can mount in parallel batteries to "raise" their amps, could I do the same with USB ports? (two 3.0 ports or three 2.0 ports)
21 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
You'll need to put small resistors in series with the device and USB ports to balance them (a couple ohms). If you put two voltage sources in parallel without that one will supply a slightly higher voltage and all the current will be drawn from that one. This will make your PC shut down the higher USB port for drawing too much current, then the second one for drawing too much current. Batteries have their own internal resistance.

Pardon my shitty schematic and my stupid question, but I assume you mean putting a resistor where the green arrow is?

Or one for each port where the blue arrows are?

And I'm quite new with resistors, what would a good value for it?
>(a couple ohms)
dont listen to this idiot.

a 'couple' of ohms at 1 amp will drop a couple of volts.
meaning burned resistors and low voltage for your board.

usb is current regulated, should be fine.
external hardrives divide their load over multiple usb drives all the time.

AFAIK the power requirements are to high the only portable radios I've seen using CB have been shorter range than a home or truck setup....
are you wanting to make a man pack? or a go box? or put it in vehicle? or??????????
In other words how many batteries are you willing to carry?

Hi I have to cut the bigger piece to the size of smaller piece, how should I about this so that I dont destroy it?
Material for the glass tubes is glass, untempered most likely, it is a decorative piece for a crystal lamp.

Score and snap if you're feeling brave. Grinding it with a fine wheel if your not.
There is a technique for cutting glass tubing where you score around the tube using a diamond point or glass scoring tool, and then you use an electrically heated piece of nichrome wire to to heat the area you just scored. It causes a crack to begin as a result of expansion of the glass and makes a neat cut.

If you use a chain and sprocket you'll need a huge sprocket on the wheel. Just use friction drive on the tire like the picture.
Thanks looks like I need to make a trip towards harbor freight or a tractor shop.

So i started with the sub-woofer.
The 1,5 mm cobber wire leading to the speaker was broken so i had to solder it back on
Didnt work either. So im hoping the reason is that i messed up the polarization.

Neat idea but you DON'T wanna use grape wood for a pipe.

Ironwood would be a good choice.

I need a do it yourself way to secure my home. I've been having problems keeping people out. It's a long story why and not important. I have about 10 broken phones which I can disconnect the cameras from the mother boards is as far as I have hot in my ideas. I have access to a sauder gun and lots of different cords and electronics laying around my house. Any ideas on how I can get at least one camera in each room (mine, my 6 month old sons, kitchen, living room, two bathrooms) and make it to where only I gave access. I have a webcam and a desktop i will be using for the livingroom.

If you have money, doable. You would need multiple arduino boards and lots of little things like resisters and capacitors. Realistically? Buy some cameras for the house.
Get a dog, a fence and a shotgun. And grow a pair.
Sounds pervy to me.

Evening, /tg/. I'm going to be making a small fat suit that'll go under clothes, only a small belly and lovehandles. But it needs to be convincingly realistic in weight, firmness, and jiggle, since people will be seeing it up close, and possibly touching it.

I'll likely make the form for the belly out of two t-shirts stitched together, with straps on the back to hold the front tight to the body. Maybe some other shapes to adjust and smooth things out.

What I'm really stuck on is what to use for the stuffing. I'll likely use rice while figuring...

I tried asking this on /mus/ but no one has replied, so I'm gonna try here.
So I have recently started the planning phase for an electric guitar based off of some designs I saw for halo's guitars. I couldn't find the specs for any of the sizes so I kinda mixed up various specs I found for different electric guitars.
For the head stock I have 3 2/4" wide, 5 9/16" Long, 9/16" thick and 1 10/16" wide for where it connects to the neck.
The body is 21" long (probably gonna shorten it), 14" wide, 1 22/25" thick
How long...

The absolute first thing you should do when planning to build a guitar is to draw it full size (including any planned hardware, to scale), with a straightedge for the bits you want to be straight. You'll want a top-down view, a side-on view, and a full-size drawing of any pockets or interesting features that you plan to put in/on the thing.

This step, by itself, will answer most of these questions. If the drawing feels too big, then redraw a line smaller and work the design until you've got an outline for a playable instrument.

Have you decided on scale...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
First, yes, it is going to be a tilted headstock with a neck through one piece neck, sorry I didn't include that, also the scale length would be 24.75". And I do realize that I would draw out my design first, these measurements were just so I could make that phase go way faster then drawing and re-drawing. I just wanted to know if my measurements seemed too large or too small for what I had in mind, that's why the picture is there, its the design i wanted minus the shark fin inlay. Sorry if this reply...

sorry, forgot to add that yes, i would be getting hardware to accommodate my guitar, and also the layout would be like a traditional gibson, aka. 4 knob. the shape is what you see in the picture btw.
