>>1053817 You can't use Photoshop on a mobile device as far as I know. People use Photoshop cs5 or other versions to make this type of stuff. Google videos on how to superimpose shit and fuck off to some other board, nub.
Ok guys, freshman in engineering UNI right now, have to connect the pieces in pic related to form a truss while keeping the strength of the hollow paper tube when compressed laterally. Also trying to keep as light as possible. WWYD?
This probably should be posted more in advice or /out/...I know people in /out/ say you need to plan trips ahead when life gets busy, even a half day hike can make getting through the week easier but you need to plan It a week ahead so nothing stops you.
That thread 404d a long while back anon. If you love wood work why not embrace it? Or if you are doing science could you do metallurgy and become a blacksmith? Have a home forge outside? Take your own knives on hikes?
>>1053614 fill your bathtub with enough water to completely submerge it, add a jug of bleach, and let it sit for a pretty long time. agitate it every now and then. bathtub is important. a sink will not bleach it evenly because the jacket will be folded over and get weird dark spots from that. I bleached a denim jacket from pretty much the dark to the light in your pic like this, it just takes quite a while to get it to desired lightness.
Alright /diy/ I need some help with my Halloween costume, I wanted to try and make a papa emeritus II but I'm having a incredibly tough time trying to get a hold of the right materials to make it. The hat I can order online but the materials for the gown is the difficult part, there's nowhere on line to figure out what type of material it's even made from. Anybody with costume making experience know a thing or two about this kind if stuff.
>>1053587 Just go to a local fabric store and look around until you find something that matches. It looks like some type of satin. The brocade would be a little tricky, but is also likely something you can find. The hat is easy as well. There's no point in buying it if you can make it yourself in an afternoon. You could make it with some cloth and a coat hanger if you really wanted to, but cardboard with the cloth stretched over it would be more durable.
This is me and my wife's bedroom. 24x11. In the basement. Did all the flooring and walls and more this summer. Now how should we decorate the room. She wants to keep the picture of the lesbians and her butt on the wall other then that GO.
Both my struts and shocks are performing quite poorly, and I will order replacements when my paycheck arrives next week.
However, I decided to inspect all 4 wheels to see if the springs needed replacing too, and they all seemed good.
But by jacking all 4 wheels up, and thus extending all 4 struts/shocks to their maximum limit and back down again, the whole suspension seems almost good as new, is this something that normally happens?
>>1053513 For springs, measure your ride height. For shocks, bounce the car a few times, should bounce 1.5 before becoming stationary. If you replace struts, you should replace springs on the same wheels. you got to take the springs off to get at the struts anyways.
if you paid like $3 for each one, then you've got ten reasonably good project cases, with power jack already in place, a slot in the back for all your connections, and holes for LEDs in the front. you could use them, for example, as a media centers, or game emulators using RasPis.
the shielded metal case also makes them good for audio projects.
So today I mounted a TV in my bedroom with a small swivel mount that was rated for 12-32 inch TVs and under 25 pounds. The TV is 32 inches and with an unknown weight and I decided to mount it anyways. The entire night I started having panic attacks and staring at the TV because I don't want it to fall. Is there anything I could do to reinforce or make it stronger? If it was going to fall would a 24 hour test be good enough to relax about it?
>>1053424 Yea I finally found the model weight and it seems like it's in the upper range of 20+ lbs. I'm still skeptical about it and would like to put some type of safety. Would 24 hours be enough to test if this thing is every going to fall and kill me? Lol
i can't find anything about the following on the internet. Evaporation takes heat out of an object, so warm air, inside a metal tube with wet cloth on the outside could cool the air inside. I can't find anyone who has tried it, like in the setup for heating air. (see picture). Any ideas if it could work? I lack the equipment to try it, like lots of cans and a thermometer to measure it, but will save up on cans so i can make a larger setup to try it.
>>1053400 What's the application? Just read up on basic refrigeration cycle, compressor vs adsorption cooling, ground geothermal cooling systems if you just want to learn theory, those subjects should get you started.
Sup /diy/ I want to build two desks for me and my brother. I found a very nice solid pinewood board (18 mm thick) for a decent price, so the countertop part is covered, at least in theory, in both desks. Now, I was thinking on make the legs on iron pipe, like pic related, but I'm cheap, and also I believe (but not 100% sure, I will ask to their customer support in a few hours, because is too early here) that my nearest hardware store doesn't offer threading and sizing the pipes. In case of that, I'm looking for some other stores specialized in pipes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1053405 I was thinking on that, that PVC is too bendy for furniture related crap. What about build two cabinets of 18mm MDF and put them like pillars? >>1053408 For the same reason stated in my first post: Too expensive. A thread cutter here is too darn costly to justify it. I have a plumber friend, but that guy doesn't work with iron pipes, he only does copper related shit.
Just got a old vauxhall corsa cause I'm a poorfags and it's all I can afford. The only thing I want is a good set of speakers not worried about anything else, can anyone recommend the best place to buy car speaker systems? I don't really want to spend over £200 because I would be paying nearly more than I did for the car.
Cadmium reacts before brass. You'll have a galvanic cell if you put them both in an electrolytic solution. I don't believe you can plate brass onto cadmium. See this table for the galvanic series of metals - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_series
>>1053224 Well you could start doing minor repairs yourself. A lot of things are far less hassle to just do yourself rather than call the landlord, have someone come over to the place and get near all your precious stuff, etc.
Of course just keep in mind you're responsible for anything you attempt to do and screw up.
retail deosn't require any skills. it worked at deep homo and it's a job and a place for morons. some guys were cool and knew their shit (retired tradesmen doing a part-time job) but everyone else was incompetent as sheepdicks.

My calculator's screen suddenly started looking like this, I didn't drop it or anything, it is stored in a cabinet and only I use it. This coincided with me buying and using a linear power supply and an oscilloscope (Rigol DP831 and DS1054Z)
Now, I don't give a fuck about the calculator, but I'm worried about my computer monitor, which is also near the cabinet and both instruments - I'm wondering if they might have anything to do with the calc failing
Is that even possible? Can I measure it somehow? Or was it just a terrible coincidence?
>>1053144 Probably contacts or a ribbon cable gone wonko, like >>1053148 says. It's nothing to do with your oscilloscope or PS, calc would be one of the least EM sensitive things on your desk. Try to fix it by cleaning it inside or get a new one.
I have an extremely bad "humidity" problem in my basement.
As in, one of the walls is WET all the time from water leaking in from the backyard.
Now, a bit of background:
>My basement is a 5x1.5m room. Three of the walls are interior walls, and one of the small sides is an outside wall. >The outside wall is built like shit. Like all the other walls in the basements really. This is a very common problem in pre-1970s buildings here in Turin, Italy. >This... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1053096 Man, and here those Europeans would have you believe that their brick homes were indestructible. Brought low by shitty building standards.
There is a known good solution but you are not going to like it. You have to rebuild the wall and seal it from the outside. That means you have to dig the dirt away from that wall and put a heavy duty water sealant on the brick after you rebuild it. I'm not talking something you buy in a paint can and put on with a brush. I'm talking the real deal. You have to rest... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm looking at buying a used popup camper made by Four Wheel Campers. These things are usually quite expensive and sought after, and since this one is pretty cheap and has been sitting for a while I'm suspicious it might be in terrible condition. I'll preface all this with saying I am not handy at all and probably asking some stupid questions. The fact that no one else has bought it and my lack of knowledge makes me think I shouldn't buy it.
The seller says it has two issues - rust on the outside latches and it needs a new headliner. If this is as... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1053041 OP, I would be very very cautious with buying an RV in that condition. This is coming from someone that has lived in a 30ft 5th wheel for the last 3 years. The first thing that comes to mind is mildew and mold concerns with the ceiling and insulation, or even possible rot. I've never dealt with pop up RVs. But if the ceiling liner is anything like mine, and every other Rv I've been in, the liner is more like a very thin cardboardy particle board. My guess is that there was water damage and he took off the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been trying to figure out why my dryer is running too hot. I've cleaned it and checked both the thermostats for continuity and they're good. I've also checked the heating element and it looks good too. I'm unclear on what to check next. Any ideas?
>>1053027 What is the thermostat controlled by? A bulb? Is the bulb clear of debris, and functioning properly? If it is only sensing 200 at 300 degrees, it will be too hot. What I'm getting at is replace the thermostat with a universal adjustable one.
Looking to build a freestanding woodie to practice climbing on, but my I had one question. I'm building this contraption in my garage and was wondering if anyone had any experience with suspending a rock climbing wall with rope? My thought was secure the bouldering wall to the rafters and the angle on incline can be adjusted. Take in the slack and you have a 90 degree surface to scale. Let out the slack and the surface becomes more inclined. Any thoughts?
This board seems to be the only one with actual adults on this website.
I'm looking to buy a house soon. I have $100K down and want to spend no more than $200K on a house. The area I'm looking at seems to be nothing but fixer uppers or cheap modular homes in that price range. What should I be looking for when buying a fixer upper? I have ~$170K in savings and don't want to go broke after buying a home either. Location is in Virginia, searching between Richmond and Williamsburg along 64.
>>1052946 'fixer upper' means different things to different people. But, those prices are insane. I paid 140k for a standard Florida city home, 3b2ba, 1960s Tampa bay area. Needed updating, but nothing crazy expensive.
I am glad I didn't go crazy with required fixes, all rooms were functional. We had to move in ASAP, and if you dont have the luxury of a temporary place to stay, you'll be screwed too without a kitchen, bathroom, etc.
>>1052946 Research the local market. I just went through the nightmare of buying a home in northern AZ. Half the houses were rentals that have been destroyed from the native niggers. The other half were overpriced with some seriously shady foundations. I second the build a house idea. It's what I would have done had I the savings for it, or if VA loans covered construction loans.
Hi, I want to make a small raft to hold a wooden structure. I have attached a sketch of three potential methods to make a keel-like element to prevent it from cap-sizing. I would love to discuss and get your thoughts on which method will be most secure, simple to execute, efficient etc. and why. If there are further details you need, obviously feel free to ask.
Further info that might be relevant: For the floats I'll use 2 barrels OR 4 jerrycans, they will be sandwiched between two wooden pallets; the structure will be about 2m tall; the weight at the bottom... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1052948 I have no option to make it wider, at least not to the extent that it will be stable relative to its centre of gravity; therefore a keel is imperative. And doesn't a keel, by definition, include a weight? either way I intend to use one as marked in my sketch.
Hey diy, I am replacing the brake shoes and drums on my car. I am having trouble putting a pin in the shoe. So the other springs just go in holes, but the spring for the auto adjuster need a hollow pin in the hole first. I guess it's not allowed much wiggle room. On the old shoe, it's a hollow pin with a zig-zag line cut into it. On the new one it's a straight line. There is also a locking ring for the pin, I am unsure how to put it in place. Have any of you done this before? I can't find anything on it online. I squeezed the pin with pliers and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1052916 Post pics of new shoe, preferably assembled to the point that you got stuck. Weird setup. I'm not sure exactly where the issue is. I see the adjuster lever on the pin pivot with a retaining clip/rod over it that the spring also uses as an attachment point.
