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?
>>1065887 Wow, 24? You can do a lot with that much trash. I would recommend finding some sort of lubricant and soaking them in it. Afterwards they should be significantly slippery enough to shove up your ass.
Hi OP. You can make a non-rechargeable cell with aluminum scraps and common household materials which holds an energy density by volume on the same order as gasoline, which blows lithium-ion the fuck out. Here's an instructive video:
>>1065842 The hell is a ying yang hold up? 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.
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.
Not sure if this is really. That funny or if i am autistic. Probably both. Looking like this is my costume this year. Gonna sew it good and get giang google eys from walmart.
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?
>nb4 loose weight faggot.
Down to ~1,000 calories a day from about 5,000. And quit pop and beer daily. I'm over the hard part and it's smooth sailing to summer bod by summer. Lost a negliable 20 pounds or so, but today i get to punch a new hole in my belt!
Recent events have me worried. Does /diy/ have any knowledge of building a fallout shelter? Apparently 3 ft of dirt can offset a lot of Gamma radiation etc., but I want to know about ventilation, if I should use a shipping container for the innards of the the dirt hole, etc. It'd only need to last two weeks.

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?
>>1065532 And windows, insulation, wiring, plumbing, heating, drywall... Good building supplies cost good money, and it's not like one man can put a complete house together that can pass code in a reasonable span of time.
>>1065542 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.
$100/sq foot is dirt fucking cheap. Yeah an individual 2x4, sheet of drywall, square of shingles, gallon of paint, board foot of trim, or outlet is kinda cheap. But multiply all those out to however much is needed. Then consider the most expensive... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to build some LED decorations for my room by illuminating acrylic sheets. I have seen ways of displaying neat patterns and images by engraving the surface. Now my question: is it possible to do the engraving by hand, without any tools whatsoever? All videos and blogs use special engraving tools and while they are quite cheap, I want to do it by hand if possible. Can I just take a sharp object and scratch the surface to do my engraving?
Well, I don't plan on making complex figures, so precision is not key here. That's why I would like to know whether it can be done with a screwdriver or so. Sounds stupid, but I don't know why it shouldn't work.
Wondering if any of you could help identify this zener diode. Its burned out, tested 0 resistance both directions so its shorted and needs replacing (as well as a reistor on the other side of the board)..
the board is PSU for a 900$ projector, and I dont wanna spend 140$ on the new psu..
So I noticed my shower drain isnt doing its thing anymore, and when I looked down there it was full of pieces of concrete and murky water that wont go away. My drain looks like the one in the picture except it has a plug where the hole is.
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. I have to knock that shit out of shower drains all the time that are running slow. I use a piece of 1.25 pvc and just lift and shove down to break it up and wash it down the line.
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.
>>1065028 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. I have to head to work but I'll think about the nose joint and see if I can come up with something more aesthetically pleasing.
If I'm nailing in a repetive fashon all day, like hanging siding, I will literally see hammering nails when I close my eyes, kinda like how an image burns into your eyes when you look at a light. Anyone else experiemce this?
I need some help to make a machanism that would pull a mechanism against a spring. I'm using the rail of an old printer cut into 3 or 4 pieces. This is part of a robotic project and I probably will use some kind of 11.5V LiPo battery Any ideas?
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
I did in an apartment I lived in. Replaced all of the incandescent with LED. It's also when I found out I had a sensitivity to being it blue temperature lights. In my house I use some warm temperature leds in a few fixtures and only replace existing cfl as they die. Im replacing incandescent with LED as I unpack and find them.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064678 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.
>>1064710 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.
hey guys, I'm trying to work with USB Type-C and I'm having a little trouble understanding this pinout. which two pins provide the power and ground to my phone when I'm charging it? I'm guessing that my phone charger connects pins 9 and 4 on Type-C to 1 on Type A. Then 1 and 12 to pin 4. Is this correct?
Hey guys, found this picture and thought it might be a nice idea for children to get such a smiling apple once in a while. But does anybody know, how they are made? Is it even possible to make those complicated cuts? Or is this picture just photoshoped?
I'm a resident assistant at my university, and I want to host a scavenger hunt in my dorm for the residents to participate in. I have a 20 dollar budget. What I need help with is:
-How do I make this "educational" or development focused without it sounding really stupid to the residents, which would turn them off from participating. (My boss is requiring programs be developmental for the residents.) -What kind of prize could I give the winner? Should I give a prize at all? I'm trying to think of an incentive for participation. -What... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I could host the entire thing in the dorm, and place the items in important locations in the building and give some to the other RAs, forcing the residents to get a better layout of the building and meet the other RAs
Anyone willing to give me some suggestions about 2-stroke engine troubleshooting?
I bought this silly little chinese 2-stroke bicycle engine kit some time ago, after i had to close gaps that chinks have decided to left on carb pipe (engine was sucking air in though those gaps) it was running suprisingly well for some time - and then at some point it simply stopped working. Maybe it will be more readable if i'll list it:
>Engine wasn't working at all until i bent spark plug leg a little bit closer to the core >Now... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
>engine chokes alot when trying to get it on higher revs
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.

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
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?
>>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?
>>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.
