589 KB,
I've finally finished a custom arcade stick I've made, pic related but not mine. Thing is, I want to make it better. Right now the controls are wired to an X360 controller circuit board that I "pad hacked". I did this specifically for the highest compatibility on PC. This board sits inside the arcade stick enclosure.

Yesterday, I got the idea from another forum of making it more universal. Basically, all of the controls would be *directly* wired to a universal port (e.g. DB15) at the rear of the enclosure. This universal port would have a long cable...

If these consoles you are referring to are actual hardware, then it won't be very easy.

You would have to program each "box" with something like a Tensy that knows how to send the correct signal to the console port.

I think you guys misunderstand my idea.

Each button on the arcade stick has two wires: "on", and ground. The ground is common throughout the entire stick. There's 4 directions on the stick, 8 buttons on the face, a "coin"/back button, and a start button. That means I have a maximum of 15 wires.

The PCB of console pads typically has a common ground. When you "pad hack" a PCB, you are soldering two wires onto...

Have the manual version. I will tell you right now, you have to constantly check this fucking thing because of how shit the design is. Any bump on the head will push the vertical axis out of square. Even just regular milling will push the vertical axis off square. I bought the fixed column so that it wouldn't be useless but the bolt pattern is different. Was going to drill the base to mount it, but just left it collecting dust after I got tired of it.

I have recently designed a gaming workstation. The dimensions are 6ft. x 6ft. x 2ft. 6in. It also has a 2ft. x 2ft. add-on. With the add-on, it has six 22in. x 23in. shelves. I have gathered some opinions from others and they think it's a reasonable size. I plan to fit three 27in. monitors, a mid-tower PC, a keyboard, a mouse, and a Blue Yeti microphone on the desk. I plan on spending no more than $500 and to use something other than OSB or Bamboo.

Hey guys,

So I wanted to use some scrap glass I had to build some small lids for my small aquariums. I watched some YouTube videos on glass-cutting and I guess it's harder than it looks. I've wasted so much glass already. I don't think I'm gonna risk any more.

Does anybody know the usual rates when getting glass cut by a professional? Is it more expensive than doing it yourself?

>>1073606
The thing with cutting glass is to firmly and steadily press your cutter into the glass as you score. Then get the score to hang just over the edge of your surface.

Grab the edge of the glasswith your fingers wrapped under the edge (wearing leather gloves) and the heel of your palm on top.

Pull up ever so slightly to get and even pressure on your fingers and barely lift the glass off the surface.

Using your shoulders press down firmly and quickly. Do.not.hesitate.


Holding it like that...

Is the glass tempered perhaps? Realistically you can only cut ordinary float glass with a glass cutter like in pic. Unless you use the method described here (which is unrealistic).

As for what it cost to go to some local shop and have them use their machines, impossible to tell. Some would rip you off, some would tell you to fuck off, some would do it for a beer and a friendly chat.

The point is that guitar effects circuits aren't simple, and require a lot of components, or else they sound like dogshit. This is especially true of solid state circuits, which are more susceptible to noise (even from themselves) than digital ones.

I have some (quite a lot actually) leftover pressure treated wood from a deck.
I can either give them away for free on CL
Or take them to the dump
Or try to build something
Because I frequent this thread a lot, naturally I'm inclined towards the last one.

HOWEVER

I foresee some problems.
If I build a picnic table, I KNOW it will be rarely used (wife wants something looking nice on the deck)
If I build a small house for my kids, it will be heavy AF and a month later (when they'll get bored) I'll either have to move it or take it apart
If I start building a shed, I KNOW I'll end up spending way more than it's justified by its use.
The only two ideas I have left are:
>get a cheap Harbor Freight trailer frame and use the wood to make a platform and sides
>build some benches along the railing (connect to/part of the deck) picture semi-related

Anyone made anything else beside kids houses and picnic tables out of pressure treated wood?

car port - can't; the access to the deck is ... "complicated"

I 3D printed a V4 compressed air engine of my own design that runs on breath power (1" bore x a little over 1" stroke to give you a sense of scale). It runs fine but I've noticed I'm losing a lot of air to blow-by around the pistons into the crankcase area. Currently the crankcase is just open - imagine an engine without an oil pan. How can I reuse this air?

I tried rings but they just added way too much friction and the engine wouldn't run. I've thought about maybe adding an "oilpan" with a fitting that connects it to the intake...

Needs sand don't remember the exact portions but it will prevent cracking during drying and when used on a funace also you need to dry something that thick very slowly

Ceramics major here; what these other good folk have said are true.
-Need to allow clay to dry slowly and evenly
. Clay bodies shrink as they dry, anywhere from 10-15% and probably more for native/raw clay.
-excessive thickness will create uneven drying, leading to cracks.
-Adding a grog-like material (such as silica sand) will give strength/structure to the clay, which is helpful when hand-building or firing in an environment which can induce higher amounts of thermal shock/stressors (such as raku)

Hey /diy/ thinking of building a dock. I have a lake in my backyard and the water levels have dropped pretty low this winter so I'm thinking now is my chance to build a dock.
I have the basic idea of what I want, I'm not going to worry about side rails yet.

My plan so far is:
>16'x8' base

Every property around me has at least one pond.
One thing they have in common, rickity docks.
If you just want like 2-3 years, wood supports will work.
If you want something that will last, do solotubes and concrete.

They're just cardboard tubes of various diameters and lengths that you can buy at home improvement stores (only one use).
Buy 4'x9" tubes
Dig hole.
Stick bottom of tube in it.
Level all tops of tubes to same height.
Fill with concrete (add reinforcement if...

Dewalt kicks ASS!!

Sick of getting fucked in the ass by the kikes at the gas company and electric company.

Im living in a big house (3.6k sq ft) in a rural area. The house is not insulated beyond the absolute basics, but all non-technogical heat insulation methods are in effect.

With that being said, can anyone reccomend any cheap but effective appliances? I average $400/month just for the gas to keep the house at 18 degrees celcious.

Perhaps there is an appliance that can hold it at par or higher for only $200/month ?

Do like the Norwegians do. Close every goddamn door and buy a cheap radiator for the room you spend the most time in.

Get yourself an AGA, run it in oil and run your hearing off it.

If you want to invest heavily look at underground heat sourcing. I forget what it's called.
