Guys, what can I do with this space? I'm tired of the God damn sun heating up my living room. The sun isn't paying my mortgage, so it needs to be kept out. I feel like having curtains on either side of the door would look weird.
This is my first time trying to set up stereo speakers. I grabbed 2 cheap speakers from goodwill, each of them have 1 little input on the back and on either side of that is a positive/negative part with screws in it. Now I've read how to simply connect these speakers online to a reciever, but I don't have one yet and was wondering if there was some way I could hook these up with this thing my old band friends left in my garage. It's a sunn graphic equalizer/amplifier and the pic I posted has the inputs on the back. Is there any way I can connect these two and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
how do i go about finding a motor for a power hammer? what kind of motors would work? they would have to be high torque, have multiple speeds and not break if they miss a cycle how would i find one? what do they look like/have written on them?
So /diy/ my room is only seperated from my roommates room by a thin 4-6inch brick wall (the cheap shit). Literally all the sound goes through the wall and he complains a lot. Is there anyway of "soundproofing" (I use this term loosely) the wall behind my desk so the noise from my keyboard is quieter in his room?? Side note I'm a DIY noob and first time using the board :/ >below is my wall and the space I have
I like these things but after a while of using it my arm feels very weak and I can't even grasp a cup. This apparently happens to a lot of people and the cause is the vibrations of the tool being sent to your arm making it weak. Is there a way to cut down on this?
>>1055145 I have one as well as a gas one. They are OK but the string is goddamn expensive but you can spool your own. It also has a limited range and still has vibration after a while. I use them for maybe 3 hours when I need to whip.
>>1055143 The best material for attenuating mechanical vibrations is a urethane named Sorbothane. A US company makes and sells it; it can be difficult to source elsewhere in the world.
Most other soft rubber-like materials (rubber, urethane, silicone) hardly reduce vibrations at all.
A thin sheet of Sorbothane glued between two pieces of thin sheet metal also makes a great sound-deadening panel--but its way more expensive than acoustical foam is, and the nature of sound propagation is that you can't ever... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /diy/ I am currently recovering from the eating disorder known as anorexia nervosa that I am sure many of you are familiar with. I do not have any hobbies and believe that committing to do it yourself projects will help me with my mental stability as I attempt to eat my way to health.
Here are the currently planned projects. I would like any feedback or ideas.

I am having trouble opening (or more like pulling off) the head of this 6130 Milwaukee Grinder to repair it.
It's having issues where it turns off when held in certain angles, along with a sound of metal clanking.
I removed the 4 screws from the face along with the screws that hold it to the plastic frame. I tried pulling it as most grinder heads come off to show the armature assembly, but it doesnt work. It can rotate around after the screws are off, but I need it completely off.
>>1055096 This is where im at. Supposibly I am suppose to remove this nut above the gear, but it's been a stalemate between using different wrenches and vicegrips/needlenose pliers trying to get opposite traction to dislodge this nut.
>>1054952 Check the oops pile in your home improvement store for any outdoor based paints. Try for oil based. You only need a gallon and should be fairly cheap. You just wont get ur choice in color. If its light enough you can have them add a darker dye tho. I sometimes just ask for them to make it black or a dark brown.
You can also get deck stain from the oops pile too. That will work great too. Again no choice in color really ...
Any other anons built a shavehorse here? The variations on design were bewildering at first, but this one I made is pretty much the most popular type. But instead of having a chunk of wood to adjust the bench I use a dowel and a 2x4 for better adjustability. I haven't seen one like it any pictures I've seen of them. Maybe I invented it lol
So, several years ago I purchased a very nice cow-leather motorcycle jacket at a store that has since gone out of business. I fucking love this thing. It's been through several years of concerts, it's had beer spilled on it, it's fantastic at dispersing impact, so on and so forth. Though the lining has worn through in several places, the leather is largely unmarred except where I've taken a knife to it to put in some cone studs and a few pins on the lapels. This thing is incredible. However, I want to make my own jacket or vest, starting from scratch. What... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Bumping. Pretty sure the leather my jacket is made of is full grain leather, if that helps narrow the treatment process down any. It's some pretty stiff stuff, a centimeter or so thick. It once had a stool broken over it and I got shoved up against a concrete pillar. Didn't feel a fuckin thing. It's the best shit ever for punk shows.
If youve got sewing experince.. Great. But if not. I wouldn't... Id get sewing experince first. Also a sewing machine that has some balls for leather working cause fuck doing a whole jacket by hand...
If you want it to be an effective motorcycle jacket, and be even more comfy then shitty course grain cow leather.. You want to start saving up for kangaroo leather... Shits the best you can get! Stronger then cow, half as thick, for better... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1054963 I have some sewing experience, yes, but not a hell of a lot. I was actually planning on making embellishments out of cast aluminum for it. I have more or less of a design in mind, but I'm mostly just concerned with it being durable as fuck. It isn't really going to be meant for motorcycling, since I can use my existing jacket for that. I also don't have an issue with the leather being a bit on the rough side since that's what I'm both used to and prefer. The jacket itself is apparently quite... Comment too long.

I grew a pineapple and it has a lot of sentimental value to me. I just picked it this week after 3 years of growing. I ate it and it was delicious. I used one of those pineapple-corer things that keeps the outside entirely intact and in good shape.
I would like to make a cast of this, either in concrete or plaster or anything else recommended. I have seen it done before, so i know it is possible but i want to make sure i go about this the best way possible. I have some familiarity with concrete and plaster but it was more sculptural than casting.

>>1054909 ya, thats what i figured to. Im going to put it upside down so the open end down, use some clay/hot glue around where the opening touches the bottom.
Any recommendation on what to use as the material for the mold? Can i use rubber to recast? i am also worried about all the contours and undercuts ect in the fruit. i dont know much about using rubber to cast molds either.
>>1054895 With the money needed to buy the basic equipment, which you would use to diy the tools you'd need to make these, you could buy several thousand of them. That is before including the worth of your labor.
Couldn't find a questions thread or anything of the sort here so I hope this isn't a waste of space I was messing around with something, a bit of superglue splashed up on my monitor and I didn't notice it until later Googled for a bit but I couldn't find any decisive answers Anyone have any experience with this kind of thing? Is it possible to get it off without damaging the monitor? If not, how to minimize the damage?
Assuming it's not a glass surface: You could try scraping most of it off gently with a fresh sharp razorblade, then applying minimum amounts of heat at a time to dissolve the cyanoacrylate. Might (read:should) protect the surrounding area with things like tape and cardboard (or something equal) before you start applying heat.
If it's an older monitor with a matte screen, use this as an excuse to buy a new one
>>1054482 Most superglues are solvent and melts and bonds with the plastic in contact, so unless it is a specifically solvent free glue, your screen is kill. At least you won't remove it without taking a bit of its skin off.
I am selling my house and the buyer that I am in contract with is being a complete pain in the ass. During their inspection, they asked that I hire an electrician to fix my grounding electrode. I said fuck that and did it myself (6 gauge continuous solid copper wire running to the copper water supply line within 5 feet of entry to the house). I did more than they asked. It's up to code. They still want an electrician to look at it and tell me what I did was exactly what he would do. How much can I expect to pay to call up an electrician to come look at it and give me a...

>>1054209 Are they yanking your chain? That is petty stuff to be worrying about when buying a house. If it was a foundation problem then yeah I'd ask the owner about getting it fixed professionally before buying it. But, grounding wires to the box? Ha!
Hey /diy/ I'm kind of bored and as somewhat of a joke, would like to get one of those kids ride on cars and put a massive battery in it. What other things will i have to change and how easy do you think it will be to do?
All those little hot wheel cars use expensive plastic gears that break easily. They have a high center of gravity and plastic wheels. You can make them faster. But it is a pretty shitty platform. Try the razor electric go carts.since they have Better wheels, most are chain driven so you can actually transfer the the power to speed. The frames are also metal and they don't break with me on it at about 170 pounds. Much better platform and can be picked up on Craigslist cheap when they neglect the batteries. Which you can replace pretty cheaply online.
Having had a Razor 4-wheeler, it was able to zip my 250 lb ass across a large apartment complex to the convenience store across the street pretty quickly and regularly. The drive wheel tire wore out a lot but seriously you can't pull the speed and terrain off with a Powerwheels that you can in a Razor, especially if you weigh more than like 100 lbs.
I've used hot glue (High temperature stuff, low temp stuff just cracks off) with a lot of success (was using an old VHS cassette case to make an arduino case), I needed a lot of force to take it apart again later.
What would be the best way to do it? Atm I blacked them out with foil but did a shitty job with taping them and its quite hard t b h. I still have more than enough foil but don't know how to "glue" them and still be able to remove them few months later. And don't have money for proper blinds.
My neighbor has a former rental property he wants to unload but it's in rough shape
It is 1900 Sq Ft, 5 bed, 1 bath, two levels, dirt floor basement+ crawl space on .37 Acres of land with an unpowered 2 car garage and a barn.
It needs a lot of work. How much can I expect to pay to fix this stuff.
Needs a new roof (it leaks) One of the bedrooms has a bad ceiling because of leaky roof Kitchen floor needs jacked up safe to assume that the cabinets and appliances need replaced. May need new electrical (still uses a fuse box instead of a breaker) Re-insulated new... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If the roof has been leaking that badly and that long, the whole fucking house is rotting now. Adding to that fact, virtually nothing about the house is modern or usable. You're looking at 0.37 acres with a garage, a barn, and a building that needs to be torn down. Price it as such and you won't get a bad deal.
>>1053197 No set distance, but a constant judging of the situation, my personal alertness at the time, the stability of the cut, etc.
OP pic is terrible - he's standing right in the kickback path. If your going to be crazy enough to put your fingers close to the blade, do it from the outside, where they won't be forced into the blade if the board kicks.
Hey diy i have a punching bag in my basement, but the floor is too slippery to properly move while hitting. So i need something cheap, coating, mat or whatever to make it less slippery. Does anyone got experience or an idea for this?
