this is some kind of 1/2" skim coat over a section of the 8" block. there's a section where it's shifting.along side the mortar joints where there is no coat, and I can see a little bit of light through the crack.

other than the slight shifting it seems structurally sound. i put in new glass block windows and I hope it chills the.fuck out.

Have any of you ever made your own wood finishes?

I'm trying to craft a few things just using locally found materials. I live in an area rich with pine trees so, naturally, Pine Tar was my go to finish over Shellac, or Linseed oils.

I've read what i could find on how to harvest/weather/and ultimately refine the stuff but I still wanted to hear /diy/'s thoughts.

Slash pine is the best pine tree to get resin from.

Ive never tried to make a finish from it because I always thought that tar resin is just too damn sticky. The dried sap runs here when its over 95 degrees. So in hot areas I dont think it will be good.

But for below grade post setting. Using roofing tar on wooden post works great.

Shouldn`t thick grease work for a while until it goes completely dry again? I know most bearings aren`t sealed really tight, yet they don`t get compressed either. They could make the shocks too stiff though.

Resistance normally comes in two forms for a rotating object, rolling friction which normally is very low no matter what the surfaces are, or additional weight

Find a way to add mass to your rotating unit and you'll get much more resistance

Additionally if you don't mind a destructive resistance you could install some bike brake calipers to the wheel and use that instead
>>
>>1071857
Add a motor/generator/alternator to it that will generate electricity while you cycle. All you need to do then is to increase the electrical resistance to increase the pedaling resistance. It is extremely effective. Electrical resistance can be lighting up light bulbs, charging batteries ar trying to run something like a toaster or hairdryer, etc.

Speed = volts
Torque = amps
Speed + Torque = watts

If you want to pedal faster, make it so you can produce a higher voltage. If you want to pedal harder...

wat?

try and find a used one, I scored a 4" one for $10
>>
>>1071794
You mean height, like cutting distance between the table and the end of the exposed blade? Generally manuals will refer to that as capacity or something similar.

Are you trying to resaw planks? The bandsaw size is not what youre looking at. Like the cheap 9" bandsaw that a lot of companies offer may not allow for anything wider than a 2x4(3 1/2") to be resawn.

Or do you mean that you need a table needs to be wide enough to accomodate 15"?

Either way, start looking at 18" band saws. You might have to add a couple extra hundred bones depending on what your used market looks like locally. If you find that 18" is larger than you need, look at 14"
>>
>>1071844
I forgot to add, if you need more capacity you can find riser blocks for most band saws

Hello /DIY/

I wan't to build a "hit indicator". So what I am trying to build is a unit that senses (vibration sensor thingy?) bullet hitting plywood and indicating that hit by shining a light for 3-10 seconds.

The thing is that I can't for shit understand circuit making or electricity in general. My thinking was that the battery charges a capacitor and releases that charge to a led or something like that. The release is done by transistor and a vibration sensor.

I know my drawing will not work but I can't wrap my little mind around...

It's a hammer. Oil it, wipe it off, put it back in the toolbox.

Goncalo Alves, also known as Tigerwood. High density and alternating layers of hard/soft wood.

Ordered the block off of ebay for $75 shipping included.

Measures 20x21x1.25"
It weighed a bit more than 16 pounds in this state.

Rough sanding and cutting, using 40 grit sandpaper, and a Jigsaw.
Also a lot of patience. With Tigerwood, the jigsaw would cut 1/8" rapidly, or take a few seconds to push through 1/16" depending on the grain layer. All in all it was very slow to cut, but still felt workable.

Clamped it down and made my first decent neck pocket.
I clamped the neck into the correct positon, and drew around it, then used the router to slowly clear out the area, moving in clockwise patterns.

What does everyone think of Wranglerstar? Cody has been one of my favorites for a while, and I've learned a lot from his channel, but recently his video titles have been literal clickbait. I'm kind of dissapointed.

I've been checking out a lot of his stuff on traditional tools, which are very informative. However, he seems to be a bit of a wanker overall.

-He's a bit preachy.
-He talks too much about his life, instead of focusing on the tools. I get that this is what his channel is about (the homesteading life) but it's not what draws me to it.
-He'll praise a tool he likes in unqualified fashion, without mentioning upsides and downsides. Exceptions for the videos he explicitly makes as a review, though.

Overall, I've gotten a lot of good information...

Annoys the shit out of me and JewTube keeps recommending his garbage to me. He is fine when he's reviewing axes or making a handle for one. Otherwise, it's just fucking trash.

This.

I get a bit bored and annoyed at the way he constantly goes on about how great the "old days" were and how all the stuff made back then was so much better.

Do I buy the cheapest working circular saw at a pawn shop, or do I get a refurb Milwaukee 18v Fuel 7 1/4 circular saw that works with my existing batteries?

Unless it's corded at the pawn shop.

>>1069796
Battery powered circular saws are shit, unless all you use it for are small cuts in soft wood.

Go to a pawn or garage saw and pick up a corded saw for $15

I feel you and I'm gonna do that, though desu the new line of battery shit is pretty nice. These Lithium Ion batteries and their little Fuel line with computer shit controlling the power, its nothing like dad's NiCad piece of shit.
