Hello, /diy/ Today I woke up and turned my keurig coffee machine on like any other day The problem is, it's not brewing. The light says ready to brew and when I brew all it does is drop some grains of the coffee into the mug. I have cleaned the water filter, cleaned the needles, and have replaced the small coffee cups 2 times and it's done the same thing Please help so I can drink some coffee.
>>1069610 Put pot of water on stove, boil, pour through filter with coffee in it. Alternatively, boil water in microwave, pour through filter with coffee in it. Drink coffee. Once your awake report back about machine, since you're obviously not awake enough to properly diagnose problem.
>>1069610 The heater is failing. It won't brew coffee until it has heated up the water enough, and the heater isn't capable of that anymore.
You may be able to get a few more brews out of it if it has settings, and you go in and set the brew temp down to as low as it will go. If it doesnt have a settings menu, youre fucked. Seen this problem a million times.
So /diy/ I have 2 10(15?) gallon fish tanks that I got for real cheap at a thrift store. I want to combine the 2 to make a bigger tank for my hermit crabs. I want to glue them side by side(so it's longer) with silicone glue, but I'm not sure how well that'd work. Does anyone have any tips? I feel like the section where the two tanks connect will be too weak or flexible. If all else fails, what kind of glass should I use to make o E from scratch? I refuse to pay 100+ USD for a few panes of glass glued together.
>>1069459 No water, should be easy enough to just remove one side from each of the tanks, then put them together with aluminium angle bars for support- heavy silicone sealant gunge and glue them together. The join will probably benefit from some silicone as well and if you wanted to make it look a bit tidier, line it with alu-flat bar
Course if you've got the glass pieces there, just pull it apart and make it how high/wide/long you want.
i dont know if its more /o/ related but i want to straighten out the rear end of my caprice. as you can see there was a little bump at the rear bumper, at the left side where the trunklid meets the bumper.
at first, is it possible to straighten the bumper for an amateur without damaging it any more?
and the same for the driverside rearfender? ive never done this but i want to, if its possible. it doesnt need to be 100 percent perfect.
Hello, I run a little welding shop and one of our most time consuming tasks is cutting pipe. Most of the pipe that we use is SCH80 2"diamater pipe (Carbon steel). The way we cut our pipe now (to make pipe coupons for welders to practice on) is by using a cutting disk on a regular grinder. The process is slow and it causes a lot of sparks which later need to be cleaned up. We are aware of pipe cutters and bevelers made by rigid and of course pipe saddles to be used with cutting torches with oxy acet etc so what would be a more affordable tool to use? maybe under...

>>1069115 Cold saw. Basically a high torque, low speed chop saw with a water cooled toothed blade. Not cheap, but if you can find a used one its well worth it. That's what we cut all of our chro-moly tubing with. No sparks, shavings are easy to clean up and very smooth cuts.
I've made a few bows, steambent a few limbs, but never bamboo. I think that when you use heat to bend wood you're softening up the material between the fibers, allowing the fibers to slide ever so slightly and set in their new place. Or something. You can use dry heat, steam or straightup boil the wood. Dry heat is riskier as it dehydrates the wood extremely quickly but I have used it to correct minor misalignments after the fact to great effect.
If you are making a recurve it might be enough with a deep pot of boiling water. Since recurves only have a short... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
With all these things in mind I'd argue that you should make a bamboo backed bow but not by steambending the reflex/recurve in but rather, by gluing it in.
Start by hewing out the basic shape of the bow in a straight stave of a wood that can withstand compression well (ipe, juniper, ash, mesquite, yew). Flatten your bamboo with heat and force. I think you'll want to retain the natural outer layer of the bamboo for maximum integrity so thin down the bamboo with a beltsander or something, from the "inside". I guess roughly 3mm is a good thickness for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
All wood needs time to dry thoroughly before being worked however. Green (wet) wood takes additional set which will affect bow performance. Drying takes ages, they say a year per inch of thickness.
If you're getting yourself into this to hunt I think you should make a good bow with a draw weight of atleast 35 lbs for reasons of humaneness.

How in the hell was this cable ran behind the drywall? Old work box so must have gone in after drywall installation. Vaulted ceilings so no crawl space. Not only that, but there is a huge brick fireplace in the middle of the run! I was certain that whoever had installed it ran it outside and hidden it behind the exterior vinyl siding but when I pulled it off today I found that was not the case. I'm trying to do an in wall surround speaker installation if anyone cares.
>>1068863 Run goes over 20 feet. Here's a shot of the whole set up. Inputs on bottom left. I'm 90% sure it doesn't run outside. Pulling out the slack I can tell it runs to the side behind the drywall for at least a bit. If it was ran outside wouldn't it pull straight out?
hi, i'm looking into building my own pc, i have all the parts i intend to buy and willingly to do it. my only problem is that i have no knowledge of any cheap websites to purchase it from. i have checked some site such as Newegg but are beyond my price range. May anyone know any cheap websites for pc components? Thanks
I'm not looking for anything complicated like sending data/messages. Just something that can be activated to let a MCU know a sensor has has been tripped via analog/digital input, transmitting maybe 300 ft / 90 m max. Any ideas?
Laser/infrared. Like sensors on perimeter security systems or maybe the "eyes" for garage doors that keep the door from crushing little bobby or fido. Just need power to shoot that far.
Radio. Cheap Walky talkys you used at Disneyland as a kid before everyone had cellphones. Then can transmit a signal easily. Hell, I have a wireless security system- has infrared sensors that radio back to a base unit if they detect motion. Pic related.
Considering buying an oscillating tool, found this. Yes, Festool products are outrageously expensive, but I know for sure that every penny I paid for some of them (namely, dust extractor, miter saw and sander) paid off nicely. Still, every time I'm biting my fingernails when I see the price.
>>1064337 It has things I already have (sanding accessories) but doesn't have things I really need (limiters of several kinds). Another plus for Festool, it comes in a standard Systainer box - I really hate all those bags that are a pain in the ass to store. And another plus - some guy at Amazon pointed out that there's an adapter for cheaper Fein blades, in case there'll be a need for that.
>>1071220 this is incorrect. Speakers are rated at what they can handle not what they require, you can hook this speaker up to a 3w usb amp and it will happily supply that speaker with sound until the world ends. it wont exactly be loud (or even be a whisper) but it will work.
How can i connect 3.5mm audio jack to this potentiometer to aux amplifier. I want this potentiometer to be "middleman" beetwen laptop output and amplifier input. Anybody has any ideas? google showed up nothing
I just looked at a house today to buy, and the only real problem I found (I do this for a living) was the deck appears to be sliding/sinking in towards the house. The force on the ledge caused some of the block in the basement to move inwards, and the previous owner did a really shitty job patching the cracked mortar joint. The deck is only about two feet from grade to bottom of the joists. What would be the best way to jack the deck in the direction of the red arrow so that I could then brace the deck and better assess what is happening? Truthfully I think they undersized the footers.
Hey /diy/ how much money do you think that is need to fit a garage with nice quality tools to fuck around the house and the car? No, I'm not a tradesman so I'm talking mostly about a few pliers, wrenches, hammers, vice, power drill and angle grinder, screwdrivers, few boxes for storage, quality metal saw and so on.
>>1070383 Take your shit, and go to any big local flea market. Bring 300 bucks, you'll find everything you need.
In a year, i've bought enough tools to have myself full general/electrical/plumbing kits (<with tons of sharkbites). I have a few sawzalls and skill saws, 2 table saws, 2 chop saws, 2 compressors, 2 chainsaws.
Alright /diy/ I just bought an arduino starter kit, Uno R3 2.8 touchscreen with sd card for arduino board module and the elagoo 37 in 1 sensor module kit for arduino uno r3 what should i do now? I'm kinda new, did robotics a bit before in highschool. what are the different projects i can work on with this?
>>1070312 >ever build a Street/crank/busker organ? No, but I've toyed with the idea. I like the idea of making a woodwork clock, but it seems like a white elephant. You have to wind it, keep it set, dust it It makes noise. A wall-mounted crank organ/drum machine/music box would still have DIY clockwork, but you could just leave it alone for months if you like.
>>1070203 strips are 12v and guess what, your car is 12v. kind of. your battery voltage varies a little bit when the alternator is running. try connecting them into the wiring somewhere. when do you want them to come on? al the time? connect via a fuse to the battery. just when the ignition is on? connect to the ignition relay through a fuse. etc. etc. you can buy a 12vdc rated switch and wire it up if you want.
table indoors use a 12v wall wart/ power supply/ regulator. output power (?) is .9w per piece? so current = p/v = 0.9/12 = 0.075A = 75mA per strip, your power supply needs to be at least this and i guess its per strip so for 4 strips your power suply needs a current rating of at least 0.3A (300mA). more that that is ok but its not efficient. voltage must be 12vdc no more no less
