I'm tired of getting shocked when I touch my light switch and ground myself out. How can I prevent the shock? I have antistatic bags (grey), all sorts of electric components, and a soldering iron to work with. What can I do to not shock myself?
>>934322 Lift your feet when you walk for a start. Avoid synthetic clothing, wear leather shoes etc. Friction = charge. Reduce friction, reduce charge. A room humidifier might work as well, its easier to build a charge in a dry environment than a not so dry one.
>>934330 ..there's nothing to build, unless you want to walk around your house with an 50 foot earth strap from your wrist to the nearest water tap. You sound like one of those muppets that uses an arduino to flash a LED. Stop overthinking it.
I recently found out you can melt down HDPE plastics easily and without creating harmful fumes if done right. I was planning on making a mallet, a cutting board, handles for tools of mine, and some boxes. What else should I build? HDPE is used in a lot of everyday bottles and containers so getting the plastic isn't too hard and pretty much free.
So I accidentally let the old thread die. Anyway, I'm about halfway through this project now and this is the second test build, the first test build with one intake fan couldn't push enough air through the 100mm hose to cool the condenser. Now I've added an extra fan connected both into a 150mm hose, this set up theoretically delivers 890 cfm, although it could be more or less due to flow restrictions or the suction provided by the A/C unit.
If this build provides the cooling I want the next step is to work on streamlining it and making it tidy.

you'd need 14" duct to move anywhere near 900cfm, with that 6" flex dryer duct your closer to 100cfm
Is the point of this train wreck to keep your rack mounted whatever cool? If so why dont you make an enclosure for the rack, and run chilled air through there, and put large box fans in the window to cycle the room air and keep the a/c happy
Ok /diy/ I admit, I've never posted here, and barely lurked, so if this thread isn't cool go ahead and ignore or delete, I don't mind I got this vape and I really like it's look, but damn the thing is unstable and if I leave it standing up it'll probably get knocked over. I'm pretty crafty, made a lot of at home solutions to thing, but I can't think of how to make a stand or way to stabilize it without making it look dumb. So far my thoughts are rubber bands around the very bottom (ugly) or maybe some sticky tac in three little circles on the bottom, but I was hoping for some other ideas. There is a usb plug at the very bottom, so if it's charging there's that to deal with.
>>934304 How would an elastic band keep it upright? Why don't you stick it up your fucking asshole you dumb fucking vapefags are the worst of the worst I would rather have everyone in the whole world smoke real cigarettes and blow the smoke directly into my eyes and mouth than have to see or hear from one of you fucking idiot douchebag cunts ever again. God I really hope vaping is deadly and they just decided not to say anything to get rid of scumbag hipster trash retards.

How does this make a prepper: >produce disposable hats in the outdoors from local natural resources would be a handy skill, and id like to learn how. Traditional Hawaiian bowl weaving is still performed today, maybe searching along those lines might get you closer. I imagine it's better to have thick robust type grass so it'll last longer.

/DIY/, So I'm in the process of writing a script for my first build on a DIY youtube channel. Will be alot of easier builds until I get a feel for how to do this. Anything you guys like and dislike with youtube build videos? Any general advice for writing tutorials?
>>934296 My camera is 1080p 60 fps. Just built two sets of LED panels for lighting (I have Several work lights that I used to use for film but the heat will be an issue for some of the things i'm interested in doing). Decent Microphone, for doing audio ontop, but its been a while Since I've used to for this sort of application so will need to test.
I'm looking at starting with simpler electronics builds and extraction chemistry, explaining how these things actually work instead of "Look at the circuit"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The drywall seam has formed a hairline crack and has been fixed 4 or 5 times now. It is right at a large opening on a load bearing wall. I laid some plywood in the attic to prevent the joists from moving in case they were and installed metal bracketing before I added blown in insulation, and the wall is directly over the steel beam in the basement. It's a ~6 foot span with a double 2x8 and plywood header, with about 3 studs on each end (Jack/King). I don't know what to do anymore other than tear it all open again, or to just laminate the whole wall with another layer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>934205 It's an interior wall. The basement beam is fine. My only idea of what might be happening as that that one corner wasn't secured properly to the king studs, and it might be moving ever so slightly, enough to cause the crack to form since the seam is right near it.
What is all the PVC and pump equipment for? To act as a mini jacuzzi?
All you really need is a vessel to hold water, and a drain for said water. Theres a number of ways to do that including building it with hotmop similar to a shower stall, gunnite similarly to a pool.
I've never been a fan of baths and have never done a sensory deprivation chamber, so I assume you float for an hour as meditation? Would the chamber really need a circulation or heating system, or is that a convenience thing?
Where do you plan on putting this thing thats likely 50% bigger... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

The whole point is that the water temp is very near body temp so it removes the sensation of hot/cold. You're trying to remove your senses.
Circulation system is generally to clean it, but if OP is the only one using it, you could massively... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>934187 >What is all the PVC and pump equipment for? To act as a mini jacuzzi? sensory deprivation chambers are filled with brine--basically water that is saturated with salt. so you need a heater to keep it warm, and you need a filter system to filter the brine acceptably or else it gets scummy quick. Plus the filter system has to be all-plastic; no metals will last long in that kind of salt solution. Most parts from a normal pool or hot tub filter won't work.

Glue it to the top of a nice pen Make a copy of it and turn them into earrings Necklace pendant Put it in a box along with a note that says "I love you but I'm not creative at all so here's this thing. Sex now?"
Can you mix pipings? For example, can I use http://www.pvcfittingsonline.com/2-sch-40-pvc-90-sweep-elbow-soc-406-020s.html with the 2" OD x 1-7/8" ID x 1/16" Wall Polycarbonate Tubing listed here? http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=23791
Picture related is what I'm trying to do, if it matters.
>>934059 >http://www.harvel.com/piping-systems/harvel-pvc-pipe/schedule-40-80/dimensions Ahh, alright. i assumed since it was meant for 2 inch pvc pipe it would fit a 2 inch whatever else pipe too? If it helps I was going to use aquarium silicon in the joints anyway.
Hey /diy/, I need help with the caulking of my sink.
I'm renting an apartment and noticed mould arriving, and as I tried to scrub the mould, the caulking is beginning to peel off and I see more mould underneath. I'm not handy in any way, I need some advice as to what to do to fix this.
(I'm afraid of letting the tenant/agency know of this because this mould was not present when I moved in)
100% silicone doesnt mold. it is also a bitch to apply. remember to cut your tip very small and squeeze it under there until it comes out. let it day, and then cut it off with a brand new razor blade so it doesnt look unfinished.
