Everything else* is really expensive and requires me to go to a different city. I don't have a car so glued laminated timber is the only material I can really access because a hardware store literally next to my house stocks it.

Is building something 'simple' like a computer case or an arcade cabinet viable from it? The typical set is a 1000 x 400 x 18 mm (pine, oak or bamboo.)

Is it durable? Is there something I should know about painting and varnishing it?

Anyway, I think that design wouldn't stand too much horizontal movement. Also, you need a strong frame. I've seen many wood ones that were shit.

Mm, thinking about it.. a telescopic bar you can lock, is thick and strong enough and has large soft blocks at the side but it would be a problem to keep it up without falling, and certainly a pain to make. My two cents.

I don't really know. I just thought that it would work like a wedge and work like a clam cleat, pic related.

My body weight would wedge the bar, because of the shape of the ying yang hold up things. Idk what I should call them. They were my solution to the telescopic bar.

your yin tang thingies should work IF you put some good grippy stuff on the side that sits against the door frame. maybe use those no-slip rubber mats they sell for putting on car dashboards? I think you don't even need the yin yangyness, just a couple of wedges. Might have to experiment with the angle of the wedge.

Thing is tho, i am a fat neckbeard fuck. Somewhere around 260.

Do they make hampers or similar that i can fit in without looking life sized...?

If not maybe just cheap netting or something and wire loops to keep the fabric shaped right?

Any thaughts.

I want to build pic related basically, 30'x40' on both floors. Every calculator I've tried says to budget $250k (around $100/sq ft). How is this accurate when a house is mostly just concrete, wood, drywall, shingles, and siding (all very cheap) and similar older houses in the area (upstate New York) are going for $50k? Am I totally missing something here?

Nah, depends on area but $250/sq ft for average grade quality materials is about industry standard. This price is climbing as trends and design change. In CA $300 /ftis normal, but i've seen $425 in nicer houses. Others in my field have seen $600 in high end places.

$100/sq foot is dirt fucking cheap. Yeah an individual 2x4, sheet of drywall, square of shingles, gallon of paint, board foot of trim, or outlet is kinda cheap. But multiply all those out to however much is needed. Then consider the most expensive...

if it is stuck to the sides and really white in color, its not concrete, its some mix of soap, gunk, grout runoff and other shit.

that small hole is a bypass to run a snake past the trap more than likely. if you do so, put the plug back afterwards.

Adding fur is easy- loctite makes some adhesives specifically to bond fabrics to other materials. I've glued some leather and tested it- the leather ripped apart before the glue failed.

Has anyone replaced the bulbs in their living spaces completely with LED's?

I have a mix of incandescent bulbs (that haven't burnt out yet), CFL's in the basement and garage, and LED's that replaced the burned out incandescents

I signed up for a green energy mailing list a couple years ago and they sent me a box full of CFL's "for free" last year but I'd have to say they were just offloading their inventory. They work, of course, but I just can't seem to get myself to dump them off at the recycle center

Power wise I'm not sure I ever noticed a difference. In the apartment I lived by myself so the power of 1-2 40W versus 1-2 15W bulbs isn't a lot. I mostly bought into it to support the industry. Cfl and other florescent lights hurt...

Yes, LEDs are nicer as they don't warm up like old CFLs or stay dim in the cold, I also get LEDs in warm white or daylight white. That being said, there's not a big reason to dump all your working CFLs, I still have a few going strong in places where it doesn't matter much with about half a dozen to replace them when they burn out. I've only bought LEDs when i could get really good deals on good quality ones, don't rush it and pay full msrp.

I've been slowly replacing my working CFLs with all LED. I pick up a six pack every trip because theyre just so fucking cheap now, and they use even less power than a CFL for more light. I used to keep the old bulbs, but they just take up space because the LEDs last forever.

Spark in open air doesn't mean anything on the plug. A good spark must be able to jump a 1/4" gap in open air to be able to spark when the cylinder is at 110+ psi compression.

Your carb high speed needle is not set properly or you changed the amount of oil in your fuel mixture. The carb needs to be tuned for your particular mixture, also small chinese carbs like this are usually shit and not properly designed.

Wear a hat/something that shines a UV LED at you to illuminate them.

Would not DIY contact lenses, too easy to scratch your cornea, then you have weeks of wearing an eye patch to heal up.

I would start here instead of pushing actual discussion off the board with a shit thread

If your goal is to simulate a red-out without pulling negative G's, this sounds like a great idea.

For any other purpose it's retarded. You won't be able to see shit, and even with your eyes closed, you'll see a bright red glow.

Hey /diy/,

I was looking at getting some marking blue for laying out metal parts for cutting and I heard that there are recipes for making it.
Anyone know how to make this stuff? A recipe that included thinners, pigment powder and some shellac sounded pretty good but I don't remember the quantities.

Also, sheetmetal/machining/toolmaking thread I guess

Its a mix of methyl blue, methyl violet and a resin.
Getting these ant a decent price might be hard.

You could mix up a substitute of finely powdered chalk and water or if you have a chemically resistant surface you could use copper sulphate and a drop of sulphuric acid in a water solution.

Marking fluid is like 5 bucks?

Water colors work for engraving, kind of. China white is better.

Ok my only concern is the Property Tax (2%).
The tax is on the "assessed" value of the home.
So what's stopping someone from buying a poor-quality home and pumping $100k into it to keep the "assessed" value low?

Property is re-assessed each year.
(or at regular intervals)
Improvements will be noted and applied.
>>
>>1064167
so you're stating someone comes by to assess homes secretly?
theres no law forcing me to get a new assessment every year right?
but even so, how will any outsider know what's on the inside of my home?
>>
>>1064170

You don't have a choice, homes will be assessed , hell they even fly planes over neighborhoods to see who has pools and new features added,plus they pull permits filed when you do upgrades.

I need to find out a site where I can buy a controller board for a LQ156D1JX01 panel. Is this the right board? I want to use it as a pc monitor, and I can't find a control board anywhere.

There's often generic lvds panel drivers on eBay.assuming that panel uses lvds
>>
>>1064228
I think everything uses edp now. at least anything over 1080. lvds had its limits. lvds controllers need to be specifically programmed for the display you are using. edp is well, display port.

looks good to me

There is red wire and a black wire that goes in the socket. The other two red and black wires are not connected to the socket.
