Hello /diy/, I was directed here from /mu/
I plan to order a white pickguard for my strat and put some art on it.
How much work will this be? What materials and products will I need? I was planning to use acrylic paint and just put some clear coat on it. Will this suffice?
Tips, suggestions, experiences?
Obviously, I want the art to not wear away from my fingers constantly touching and scratching at it.Any help is appreciated.

You won't like the texture, believe me

If I were you I'd draw the art and order a water slide decal of it. Then you spray a clear coat on it and it will be there forever, it won't be messy, etc.
What about some kind of marker? Would this work on a pickguard under clear coat?
Depending on the varnish you use, the base on it will actually act as a thinner for the marker as well so it will be smudged

Many years ago, I came across a guy working with a small, all wheel drive articulated tractor. Much smaller than pic. About the size of a 'garden tractor'. It sat pretty low to the ground and that sucker could handle prctically any terrain.

I'm thinking it was a Kubota (orange and I seem to remember the name). But I've never seen a little one like that since.

What's the smallest all wheel drive articulated tractor on the market, now or in the past? This is something I could use.

Sup /diy/. I stole a stolen shopping cart out of the ditch the other day and i want to motorize itwith an old pushmower engine but because the pto is vertical and the wheels (which will be replaced) are horizontal plus on top of that i need a way to engage the wheels and give it variable power.

>power to the ground
You'll need to either add wheels or replace the rear ones with some kind of axle setup. At the simplest you could have a gear mounted on the axle with a matching worm coming from the engine.

>variable power to the ground
A gearbox of some sort is really your only option without modifying the engine to have some kind of throttle control. A small used tranny could be picked up for relatively cheap at a local junkyard, or a throttle body even cheaper.
I hadnt thought of a gearbox or tranny. Ill probably do that thanks for telling me
Not a problem. Before you go out and drop $100 on a tranny though, make sure you can fabricate some kind of coupler to connect the two. It should also go without saying that you'll need a manual one unless you're a master at electromechanical wizardry.

Suggestions for turning this into a woodshop? I already have all my tools and have been doing fine woodworking for a few years now. Soon a family member is getting this property, and this thing is out there. There's power nearby.

It's in Florida so I'm not worried about heating it. Cooling will just be a fan and a cold bottle of water.

I don't want to do anything with the floor if I don't have to. For table legs that'll be on the ground, I'll either surround the legs in plastic bags, or varnish them, or use treated lumber for the legs.

My main concern is moisture, obviously. I've thus far had my woodshop in a garage outside, as part of a strip of garages with no climate control, in an apartment complex. The humidity hasn't been too bad overall (well, it's Satan's armpit during the summer but it doesn't affect my stock too terribly).

Just thinking about using some corrugated roofing as the walls, running power, using plywood/OSB walls for at least one wall so I can hang all my tools (French cleat system yay), and making sure there's no leaks in the roof.

Is this a shitty idea or will it work pretty much?
until the next hurricane
Lots of trees around. It's a shed anyway. If a hurricane hits it's done for unless I add extra posts and have nice plywood walls

/o/ wasn't helpful.

How do I fix this?

I have chrome color spray, 180 sandpaper, polish.
It's on the front bumper, so it's glass fiber.

That looks like powdered metal coating. Look up the paint colour code, buy the proper paint, if you use some cheap spray paint it's going to look like garbage. Also there's the chance it's going to look different than the rest of the car even if you use the correct paint. If there's no crease or loss of fiber, you only need to paint and polish.
>/o/ wasn't helpful.

Not at all surprising.
You can make it look acceptable and nobody will notice unless they are looking hard.

Find the actual color code for your car, google the year and model and general color, you should be able to find it.

Go to the auto parts store and find a can of color matching touch up spray paint.

Wetsand the bad area, mask it off, use a PLASTIC primer, let it dry, put on very light coats of the color match , let dry and then wet sand, another coat keep going until you think its sufficient enough.

Then buff the shit out of it. Itll look OK hopefully the rest of the car hadnt faded too much
I found my car's color by looking under the hood.
Z 157 (tigra twintop 2004)

I'll follow your advice, just found some YT vid howto wet sand.

Hey /diy.

Got Arduino Uno and TFT shield. Got a SD cardreader and got 2x iPhones (4 and 4S)

Both are totally functional except for the battery on the 4S, it also has it's glass front shattered (LCD is ok).
The 4's Power button is broken, the rest of it is fine and I have started cannibalizing it as you can see in pic related.

Have breadboard and cables for testing etc. Have LEDs and a few sensors knocking about too.

It is my intention to mod by bicycle and am thinking sound, lights (safety as well as for coolness). Retractable cable ports to plug in peripherals and I would like to have all the components "built into" the body of the bicycle (handlebars, frame etc).

Not sure what to do, if anything, with the display? Ideas, suggestions, tips, encouragement and flaming all welcome.

Hello I would love to know if it's possible to remove the pneumatic function from the chair, I always keep it at the lowest and I don't need to go up and down.
However, the chair keeps going up.

I prefer it to have stuck and don't move

Any help?

the pneumatic cylinder is the bit that attaches the seat to the base so if you can find something suitable to replace it then yes.
Just drill a hole in it
It isn't a "pneumatic" function.. It is an hydraulic function.

Hey, I'm in need of a 2n333 audio amp transistor, but they don't really make them anymore. Does anyone know of a more readily available equivilant?
5 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
ECA's replacement tables suggest BC107, BC171, BC182, BC207, BC237, BC382 and BC547. The last one should be easy enough to find.
Basically they're all run of the mill low noise transistors.
Literally anything. The reason nobody makes "vintage" transistors is because they are essentially 100% substitutable with modern devices, and unless the circuit has some retarded design, it will work better or be more reliable with modern devices. 2N3904 should work perfectly fine and cost pennies a piece in bulk.

Just wanted to share the little angled wooden stand for my Korg electribe I made from scrap wood today.

This is my first actual wood work since shop class at school (10+ years ago). It turned out quite good but I regret having used cheap wood. But you barely see anything of it so I guess it does okay.

>wooden stand for my Korg electribe
>I regret having used cheap wood

should have made yourself a dildo you queer
Nice, you should weight it so it stays more firmly in place when you are using it. Or maybe add some grip material to the underside
The machine weighs 1.6kg so there's enough friction. I may add some rubber feet at the back.

I'm moulding a helmet so i can produce more of them, I've got my silicone ready to go, but I'm having a hard time finding fibreglass cloth and resin. Do any UK anons know where I can buy any (Thats not too expensive), do any other anons have any alternatives to fibreglass? I have heard that Plaster of Paris works, but I'm not very experienced with this sort of thing.

get a bondo fiberglass kit at any auto store
My university seems to source a lot of stuff from easycomposites.co,uk. We get carbon fibre matting and stuff like that on giant rolls but it looks like you can buy it by the square metre.

First time posting, no idea what the "ohm" thread is. The description you captured in your screenshot doesn't seem to provide enough info to suggest it's where I should be
Why is the "ohm thread" its own thread?

This is yet another datum that it doesn't do what it's supposed to, because no-one can work out what it's for.

Hey /diy/, I broke the frame of my glasses when I went snowboarding. It broke the bridge of my frame. My frame is made of acetat and I want to use acetone to attach the two parts back together. However, with my bad eyesight of -9 I need my glasses through the day. What I have read from the internet seems that it needs to dry 24 hours. I can't go without my glasses for that long, so what happens when I let it dry for 14 hours. Should that be sufficient? Or should I just keep them taped together and wait until I get my new glasses?

Can be found at Wal-Mart in the paint section.

You're welcome.
What kind of faggot are you?
Everybody who wears glasses has at least 1 spare set.
Heck I don't even need mine half the time and I got like 2 pairs just to be safe.
So yeah superglue and get a spare set. You should know this by now.
Watch Out when using some glues Especially super glues, they often produce some white fog which sets on the surrounding areas
