>>1072331 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.
>>1072072 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.
>>1071853 I've rebuilt the odd car shock absorber and those use hydraulic fluid Dunno about a washing machine one made out of plastic, however if its dried out then the pistons seals which run inside sleeve are probably fucked
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.
scrape the burned shit with alcohol, expose some copper on the trace and solder that shit good, if it works your good, if it burns again the problem might rely on something down the line (after that board) gl
>the inductor would get hot enough to burn out like that oh and btw, the inductor probably didnt burn the trace, it vibrated enough to break the solder/trace until there was so little contact area that the trace/solder left began to overheat from the amps going through it until it couldnt take no more >my 2c
I'm thinking of installing some POV lights on the front grill, near the top of the windshield inside the car and the top of the hatch glass inside the car. Because if I have to get anywhere quickly for whatever emergency reason, I want to do it as safely as possible, which means being as lit up and loud as possible. Yes, it might land me a misdemeanor, but if it means other drivers will be in a safer position, I will do it.
I was also thinking of hard wiring one of these SIM card GPS trackers in there, so I don't have to worry about it dying on me. This thing'll be worth about $15k when I'm done, so I'd hate for Jamal to steal it in the night (if he can get past my ignition cut off, battery cut off, fuel cut off, ignition breaker, and wheel lock that is) and not have a way to track it.
I fucked up guys, i broke my window and need to change it, since it's freezing here. It costs around 1000 dollars including the window, i feel i'm getting ripped off, and can do it much cheaper myself. How do I do this? Do any of you have any experience with this? It should be doable
>>1056263 A Rockwell Delta scroll saw, pic semi-related from Google. The previous owner had bought it in near-complete condition and it was a variable speed model too boot. Retirement light, original stand and mounts, excellent condition. It had a janky 1/3 HP motor from god knows where and the upper blade guide was missing. He paid next to nothing for it and decided to part it out instead of replace what was needed and sell it whole. By the time I find out about it he had sold the retirement light, the original stand, and the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
hey dudes. i'm trying to build my own house. i've done a fair bit of construction before, so technical skills aren't much of a concern. particularly because i've tried to make the design as constructable as possible.
that being said. materials are fuckin' expensive. its like a couple grand just for the form wood for the foundation. what are good sources of cheap-o materials? craigslist is good for tools but rarely has the volume i require in terms of materials.
>>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.
>>1071816 I'm not sure what you're looking for. I think you want some type of all-in-one package (maybe for camping?) that you could like plug into a generator and have everything (light, microwave, phone charger etc) in one portable unit (?)
>>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"
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1071535 Hook up one of those cheap "piezo bender" sensors to an op amp buffer and then a gain stage. Fix the sensor to whatever you want to measure the vibrations from. Also be sure to ESD the shit out of the input stages, those sensors can output kV if hit too hard
hey /diy/, i'm doing a new kitchen in my apartment and i'll be setting a counter - wall to wall in one piece (it's a narrow kitchen). the walls are not really straight, naturally. how do i go about fitting this thing?
Search Dave Wirth bed. I built his shelving. One seems a little bowed because the wood I used wasn't perfect, but I'm sure cross beams would have helped. My son and I laid on the shelves after construction to see how sturdy they were.
>>1071329 Ikea beds are made out of the shittiest wood you could imagine, so I'd say yes. The only thing not wood is the middle support beam on twin and up mattresses. If you look up what Ikea uses to support mattresses, you could copy the linked beam thing they make to keep it from sagging. I did, and I didn't use enough beams, so it hurt like a motherfucker to sleep on.
I have a compact body massager at home and recently I was thinking if I could possibly speed up the process in which it moves without ruining the massager itself. I was wondering if you guys if their is anyway I could do that.
I was just wondering if you guys have any tips on drilling straight holes I use all drills ranging from 100mm hss to 1200mm masonry.
I'm a second year apprentice chippy and this is the one thing I am struggling with. The only way for me to tell if it is straight is to sort of take a step back and look at it from a far but all the other tradies just seem to know is this experience or am I missing something?
I'm thinking of buying a log cabin kit from one of those Amish logger companies.
The kid includes all of the frame work and plans. It doesn't include the foundation, actual doors, windows, plumbing, electric, etc.
How much extra would I be looking at to build the cabin after the cost of the kit? I tried asking them but they just kept shilling their own service that builds it all for you and wanted a bunch of information for a quote.
How much would it cost extra to /diy/ it, aside from hiring licensed tradesman to do some of the work like electric,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>no skills I'm a truck driver and learned how to work on diesel engines from reading service manuals. I know some home reno stuff from working for my Uncle's company doing dry wall, painting, kitchen.bath renos, etc. I'm not licensed to do any plumbing or electric work though, and have never build a house from the frame up, unless building a small...

>>1070904 >Do you know understand that solar panels are an affordable option these days? Sure. They are great. When used with a grid tie system they are quite affordable. Without grid tie, you need a battery bank of several dozen deep cycle lead-acid or nickel-iron batteries to keep you going when the sun isn't shining. Also a charge controller. Lead is 'cheap' and iron is expensive but lead wears out in 10 years or so. So you either pay an arm for lead batteries now and another... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to make a table for my shop that i can mount a vice and a grinder on. I wanted some tips for stability. A table is a board with 4 legs but i wanted to know some important things for shop tables. I have a jigsaw, power drill and a power sander. Do i need anymore tools?
>>1070011 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.
>>1070013 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1069800 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.
