>>1056827 Very light touch and dunk it in water all the time. It's almost impossible to not over heat the blade edge. Even if the knife isn't hot to the touch, the edge you're removing material from (and going to cut with) with be hot enough to anneal and get weak.

Hey guys, I'm looking to design a power supply that will give me a good + and - 5V output. Probably only about 1A at most would be required.
I'm thinking the easiest way to do this would be a linear supply with the appropriate voltage regulators clamped to a heat sink at the output. But, this design is rather boring and requires a large transformer.
I've never designed a switched mode power supply (like pic related) but I like the idea. They seem to be generally safer (?) due to the incorporation of an optoisolator.

Im building a metal shed to store some gym equipment. It's nothing large, but it will be used daily.
I'm at the final stage of planning, I have a few questions though and would appreciate any help.
1. I'm going to buy a battery powered LED Lamp to light the shed, what should I consider when buying one of these? I want to mimic natural light, I don't want anything too bright or straining to the eyes.
Should I put up a little insulation? It's a metal shed so perhaps it will get too hot in the summer? If sol what kind of insulation?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1056663 Insulation is better than no insulation. Insulation foam panels is easy to put up. Finish the inside with plasterboard like any interior.
Lamp could be anything. Normal led bulbs on a usual fixture will work like any other rooms in any other houses. Just wire it to a battery. A shed is not much difference than a room in a house in terms of lighting.
First DIY project but I've run into an issue. The wood I bought (mostly 2x4) had a slight warp/twist to it. The headboard frame I've built has a slight wobble in it that I'd like to correct before continuing on.
How the fuck do you correct wood that I've already screwed together. Currently trying to weigh it down. If that doesn't work, I'll try to apply water + weight and let it dry.
>ayy lmao working with fucked up wood that needs to be corrected
Hey i got a problem, battery in dell vostro 3560. It's saying almost dead, 2 days ago it was holding 2h, now like 1.5h top. Is there a hack for this? I bet the cells are not fucked, they just jewing for another purchase. Can anyone help? I was looking for this in google but didnt find anything for this particular.
I could see a miter gauge from 3 pieced of wood, a cheap school protractor, and a screw on handle of some kind working really well.
Long thin piece of wood for the slide. A piece of wood to hold the protractor and handle assembly. The last block of wood at 90 degrees standing as the pushing block, Attached to the last block. A bolt going through the guide, protractor block, and protractor. The handle screws down on the bolt clamping it all together.
I'm looking for a small desk top toy or project to build. Something like a stirling engine or one of those walking strandbeast kits. Not interested in a model airplane or anything like that. Something mechanical or with an interesting movement. Any recommendations?
I’m into everything sustainable, so I decided that I want to make a bamboo bike. Most places on the internet instruct to connect the joints by using hemp or carbon fibre in combination with epoxy glue. However, epoxy isn’t very sustainable (big footprint), and I’d rather like to go all the way. Unless epoxy proves to be farly superior to any alternatives. >The joints are connected by soaking the fibre in epoxy glue (gained by mixing epoxy resin with hardener) and strapping the fibre tight around the joints.
I could replace epoxy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Needed ideas and tweaks for good fan ideas in tight spaces. Ive used swveral fans in diy air filtration, diy evaporative coolers. But now I need to know is can a stand fan survive if I hang it from the celing? And if so about how long can it work this way? Pic related.
I had a desk fan mounted to the wall above my bed...kept it clean of dust and pointed out toward the room when I wasn't sleeping. Ran constantly. Lasted just over a year. It was a Honeywell from Target. It didn't run as well mounted as it did sitting, because of the angle I suppose. There are ceiling mounted oscillating fans but they aren't cheap at all.
I have an extremely rusted WW1 trench knife of my great grandfathers and ive sanded down all of the rust but now theres a load of black stains on it and I dont know what they are. Obviously rust related stains.
The knife is still sturdy and sharp, is it possible to put a patina on it and paint over the blade with a rust eating metal paint? Will the patina be visible if I use silver paint?
Lets more water out at the first opening, full 360, rather than with a regular flapper where it's peeled up slowly, starting with a trickle increasing until fully open.
Think of it as an early version of low flush toilets, by combining the low material contact, wear, and replacement with the original power of a flush ball or disk.
compare it to the newer lower flush kohlers with a bucket similar to that, but with more buoyancy to raise quicker, or the toto or american standard version with a ring around a plastic flapper that moves straight up on a guide like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I think Mansfield style designs are the norm in Norway, and unless there's something wrong with the float assembly or clogs in the exhaust line somwhere, they never struggle to dismiss even the largest of dumps.
Apparently, this is a problem in amerilardistan, whereas I've never really encountered "clogged toilets" here unless obviously trying to use a whole rolls worth of paper. Even for the hugest most solid of shits.
Hi /diy/ I saw these nice Boots (pic related) but I wantend them to be in a brown finish. Im a poorfag and can't afford the brown Version (about 150€, wheras these Boots are only about 50 €) How to dye? What Kind of colors/colorremover/whatever should i use? What Tools do i may need? This is my first time dyeing leather. Helpful sources and Tutorial are appreciated.
Has anyone tried to make a bismuth monocrystal ? I'd like to make one during next holidays, but there is no website referencing how to get a single crystal. What I did learn however was : - Molten bismuth oxidizes quickly, so you have to keep a surface in contact with the air as small as possible - You get a ~70% yield in crystal(s) because you have to pour the molten metal when the crystals have formed at the bottom.
>>1056032 Cool it as slowly as possible. Use larger volume for bigger crystals (obvious) Dont disturb it while it cools, vibrations cause small crystals to form. Cover the crystals from oxygen when you pour the liquid off. Use high purity bismuth, otherwise the crystals wont be colorful.
>melt elemental bismuth >allow to cool down to 585f >insulate container >hang seed crystal of bismuth just below surface >gradually lower as temperature draps or you see crystal formation protruding >when temperature reads 581-2 hover a chunk of dry ice over the container and allow it to sublimate to...

I've got a bunch of men's clothing items I want to alter for myself to wear; primarily dress shirts, but also some sweaters and a few pants. Is there any sort of of way I can standardize this process and make it easier on myself? I really only want to slim the sleeves and take in the waist to create more of an hourglass shape instead of a box, but measuring marking and pinning every garment seems so difficult when im taking them all in for the same person
I have an old snapper mower similar to pic related that finally died. The motor and the blade are pretty much the only things that work. However, I got a push mower that works perfect but has no gas tank.
Is there a way to Frankenstein these into a working mower?
ok so.. engine and blade work, but it died... uhm what exactly died on it that cant be easily fixed with a repair or replacement part. the engine is the heart of the mower, usualyl whe na mower dies its because the engine is blown beyond repair...
be more specific tell us whats wrong with it, what actually DIED?
>>1055941 >>1055947 There is usually a thread dedicated to 3d printing, you would probably have more luck there. You probably want to replace the component that's been overheating and then modify it with a cooling device (just point a fan at it or something if you're not creative). It's also advised to research the bed, and the firmware you're trying to use to heat it, to make sure they actually play nice, and also make sure that the controller board is configured...

I do have machine tools--and the kinds of poly-whatever thermoplastic that I have sawed, drilled or machined always come out real stringy. They don't cut smoothly at all. Only Delrin or acetal does that.

$5 angle grinder. Probably goes without saying it's cheap. But if you dont abuse it i got one from there over 5 years ago and it still works like new. This is in store and u have to spend $50. But lets be real. Every one of us could use $50 worth of shit from there and a $5 grinder. http://images.harborfreight.com/cpi/emails/3716/b/images/AngleGrinder.jpg
