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.

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.

Is it not pumping water?
You might have to open your machine to troubleshoot.

>>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.

10_gallon_large.jpg
152 KB,
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.

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.

Dear /diy/

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.

I'm afraid that's too much for the typical mechanic even.
Its some serious steel, getting it to look right is not only difficult, but usually damages the chrome also.

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...

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...

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...

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.

Good reading for aspiring bowyers.

Then can transmit a signal easily.

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.

The deck is only about two feet from grade to bottom of the joists.

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.

Spent probably about 200 bucks.

you shoud make:
PID controller
Steady state controller
Data logger

Buy a wifi and Bluetooth shield. After that you can start creating an OS for arduino. Maybe a cheap console-like item.

Has anybody ever build a Street/crank/busker organ?
I am thinking of building one from plans by John Smith with small wood working experience.

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.

160 KB,
I purchased some quality LED strips from china that I would *tastefully* like to insert in my car and under my table - however they didn't come with a power supply.

I am absolutely lost on how to connect these strips to anything so that they work.

Can anyone help me out? I know I need to start with a 2 pin adapter and then what?

The chink seller wasn't able to answer my question sufficiently unfortunately.

the same seller will sell you an AC to DC adaptor so you can plug your ass into the mains

or just cut off a usb cable and use the 5V from your whatever the fuck usb outlets any kind

I can actually do that? can u post pics or a simple guide?

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

dont expect the ones in the car to last.
