I just got home from work, inserted my key to unlock the front door, twisted the door knob and the knob came off. I entered through the back door and removed the knob from inside the house. The photo shows what is still keeping the door from opening. Any ideas how I can get the door open? I tried sticking a screwdriver inside that big opening in the middle and forcing the latch open but I'm either not strong enough or it doesn't work that way. Any advice before calling a locksmith would be appreciated. Thanks
>>935971 Older/reclaimed ones, absolutely will. newer ones, some but almost certainly nontoxic amounts. my suggestion/plan is use untreated wood (if budget allows track down crappy cedar at lumberyards, resaw, and use to line structural pine). Or you can line with PE plastic (cheap source is dollar store painter's tarp). the key is trying to minimize the moisture sitting against the wood. Pine will probably last about 2 years without needing to be replaced, cedar 5-10, even without any other steps.

Avoid treated wood if possible but it won't be a deal breaker. Go to your local junk yard and ask if they have scrap lumber, might be able to find enough to build your beds for half the cost of using quality lumber. After all you're just going to pile it with dirt and shit and water, no need to get premium locust from a lumber supplier.
I'm doing some dyi wart removal. It's a periungual wart, i.e. around the fingernail. I have been applying salicylic acid daily and gradually removed dying tissue, for about three weeks. At times, it has been very swollen and painful.
Today, a huge, squishy lump came off without any pain. Considering the depth of the crater and the pink-red fleshy color at the bottom, I am hoping I am rid of the bitch for good.
The important question is how to proceed from here: leave it the fuck alone and see what grows back, or to keep removing tissue and applying acid.
>>935932 I don't really have any skills that I know...I mean I know how to do different things I can follow directions...I have a knowledge of basic tools,..im in a small poor town also if that matters
>>935936 Buy a 100 dollar portable arc welder, advertise yourself as a freelance welder and just be very selective about which jobs you take so you don't end up taking on a job to big for your skill level. Fix tree stands, livestock corrals, Gates and fences, tools, light (!) Machinery, etc. Charge 80 bucks an hour.

For an electronics project I'm using an ABS plastic enclosure. I've got a nice handheld drilling machine, but no saw. I need to make some holes in this material, I can do small circular holes with that drill.
But what for kind of drill bits do I need? Are wood drills fine? And for square holes, I was thinking of making four circular holes but I need a saw to do the rest. What kind do i need?
>>935894 The square holes are quite bigger than what most drill bits can do so I was thinking about a small saw like a fretsaw, but I think those saws are too thin and breakable to get through plastics.
I will look for those kinds of saws at the hardware store tomorrow.
Theoretically, is it possible to build an electromagnetic pulse weapon which would first accumulate a huge charge, and then fire it at some device, frying the electronics of the said device or at least disrupting it?
Is it possible to build a very low-power prototype which can be transported more or less easily (at least to an extent)?
I'm wondering because I found this shit: http://www.tactical-life.com/products/e2v-rf-safe-stop-electromagnetic-pulse-gun/ Is it a scam? Can they really stop cars with a portable EM pulse gun?
>>935856 there are a few microwave systems to stop cars but they are targeted microwave frequency rather than what you might think of as a broadband spark gap type em pulse weapon. also nowhere near handheld for the power you need
So, /diy/, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. /cgl/ probably has more expertise with the skill, but who knows what I can learn here.
So I want to make two stuffed animals. A teddy bear that's 6'4", and probably another 15"-22" teddy bear. The huge one is for me, the normal-sized one is for my cousin.
I have two sewing machines in the basement, but I don't know how to sew. On the plus side, I think both of my parents do. So on that point, maybe I won't have a problem. Do you guys know where I can find patterns... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
No. I wasn't going to say why because I was afraid it would be too "degenerate" for any of you to want to help me, but if you guess something that degenerate I may as well come clean.
I'm a 5'10" tranny, and I've been feeling lonely as fuck since I started taking hormones. That's the reason I want to make myself a teddy bear to cuddle with, so that I don't feel so alone and unloved. That's the reason I decided on 6'4", because it's roughly the... Comment too long.

1. Find basics about bonsai styles and shapes. 2. Choose your plant, optimally young one. It should be strong, healthy, with flexible wood so you can wire it. 3. Cut unnecessary branches and wire the rest to get the basic shape. Bonsai wires are special - soft eloxed aluminium. They are much easier to shape than normal wires. 4. Let your plant grow for some time in normal container or even in free soil. Check wires regularly so they don't cut into the growing bark. If they are starting to do it, immediately remove them and later re-wire your plant again. 5.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anyone here melt HDPE plastic they save and cut up?
I made these two blobs just to see if I could hand press the shit flat enough. I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet. Maybe carve them it something. I need to build a brick making clamp or hydrolic press though.
This was more a proof of concept after some YouTube videos I watched.
Left is milk jugs and dish soap bottle with some grocery bags, right is all grocery bags.
Both of them are comical in how stuff and hard they are. Grocery bag blob has some air bubbles but it's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>935763 I'm thinking they would make cool stepping stones or if sunk into a bit of concrete a cool walk way in blob form. I would have to stipple the surface a but with a soldering iron though as the surface is pretty fucking slick.
Main goal is maybe a knife handle eventually and then to try and build bricks of the shit to have a wall in a shed be made of it or a door.
I want to make my own Oculus, the plan is: 1) Find a screen 2) Find out the Oculus protocol 3) Put a LSM303D and a pi zero on your head for tracking, send signals to pc like the Oculus 4) Get Cheap VR glasses
3 and 4 is done but when I wanted to get a HDMI screen I found this: http://german.alibaba.com/product-gs/5-5-inch-1440p-lcd-1440-2560-tft-lcd-module-with-hdmi-board-for-smart-phone-60249109592.html but then some fucker bought like 100.000 units of that display and now its completly sold out
>"But I am so sorry, for now, there is no 1440P panel in stock, because this type of display has been sold out. May I know 1080P panel is OK for you? Pls kind confirm it. If only 1440P panel is acceptable, the new batch of samples would be ready at the end of March, pls kind confirm it."
- Where do I get a display (hdmi & 1440p)? - Where do I find out about the Oculus protocol
