Start with the base case. A screw, vertical relative to gravity, face to the ceiling, you standing over it, looking straight down at the head. Even in this most basic case, at all times, and by every measure, half of the screw will always be turning to the right, and half the screw will always be turning to the left. Which means that for Righty-tighty, lefty-loosey to have any meaning at all, you musty first amend it to /The top of the fastener Righty-tighty, bottom of the fastener lefty-loosey/.

>>1049282 Take your right hand. Make a fist. Stick your thumb out. Stick your thumb on the thing you're putting a wrench on. It's gonna go the way your thumb is pointing if you turn it the way your fingers are pointing.
flip your hand around, and point your thumb away from the bolt. It's gonna go that way if you turn it that way.
I am wanting to make a power supply to use during storms and in case of a black out. I only need it to be able to charge phone battery. I do have a car battery sitting around, I suspect it has a dead cell as it only holds 10.5 volts. Am I correct in thinking that I should be able to plug a car phone charger to the battery and it will just step down the 10.5 volts to 4 volts for the phone charger? So I should be able to use this battery I have laying around.
>>1049058 A phone charger will step down 12v to 5v. If it will still work at 10v is iffy. I'd guess yes but would depend on the charger. Some have low battery shutoff circuits while others are so cheap it is a wonder they don't burn up on first use.
>>1049058 >I only need it to be able to charge phone battery.
You can make a hand-crank emergency generator out of just about anything with a motor that can easily charge a phone. People often recycle old cordless drills for this since it's already geared and a cheap and easy hack.
If you have a car battery that holds a charge, just keep a battery tender on it to keep it constantly trickle-charged and keep a $15 power inverter handy to plug things in. You'll have enough battery... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's been a long time since we've had a haul thread. I've been too lazy to start one but I have still been collecting. This was from last week. This week there wasn;t any good says because of the weekend.
All these plus 3 good hand saws and a Coleman 242C lantern were all mine for only $50. They came out of an estate for a contractor that retired 30 years ago. Nothing in there was newer than the 1970s and everything had 30 years of dust on it.

>>1048740 The tool box is an older Kennedy and it is mint. Even came with the original inspection cards and advertising inside. Inside its like it was never opened. Outside is a little dusty and dirty but the paint is untouched and its rust free.
For the plumbers out there, I'm trying to remove this cartridge but I'm all out of ideas and live 20 minutes away from a hardware store. Anyone have any useful advice? I'm thinking this is a delta shower cartridge.
>>1048480 Looks like you already removed the threaded collar. On my valve, once collar is removed you should pull & wiggle simultaneously. This did not work for me and mine split in two parts. I put it back together and will work on it later. >>1048480 >>1048480
>>1048499 Fuck me m8. Yeah I already removed the collar and such and it was a straight forward pull out. But upon inspection of the cartridge, the metal, plastic, and rubber rings were all still in-tack. I wasted $16 on a seat wrench to find out there's no seat, and water kept draining out of the pipe even though I already shut off my house's main water supply and depressurized the system.
I'm almost certain it has to do with the piping behind the shower controls, that I'd have to cut out the tile... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1047374 Welder here. Buy a cheap arc set & cheap rods & fool around with rusty, damp & painted bits of steel. I gave £40 for my chinese pos. It will lay down a single 3.2 rod reasonably well. The next rod will trip out the machine for 10 minutes, until it cools down a bit.

I need ideas on how to make my own rubber or wooden stamps easily with little cost. Is there any way I can print my designs on a computer printer and somehow put it on a rubber stamp without actually physically carving it out?
I live in a 100+ year old house and like to play music fairly loud. I also build amplifiers and it would be convenient to be able to test them with an actual speaker load as opposed to a resistor. I also plan on doing frequency response measurements in the room so being able to block external noise would be nice but not the primary goal.
I don't want to be "that music dick" and piss off my neighbours, so I was looking into acoustic dampening, specifically those foam tiles and bass traps that can be stuck to the wall.

I live in Michigan, I don't know what type of birds these are (i just googled "large brown bird Michigan")
Anyhow, they hang around my new house and I noticed a dent and scratches on my work car a few weeks ago. Today I saw a group of them and one walk up to my car while i was smoking on my patio and it pecked the shit out of the front of my car. It left two very deep scratches in the hood and 3 others that will polish out.
How can I keep these birds from pecking my cars?

Does anyone know a site that sells open ended PCIe 1x connectors in pic related? (The black connector) Looking for the bare slot not on any PCB. I can only find closed PCIe slots on the usual Digikey, Mouser, Newark. Need the connector open ended to physically but not electrically accommodate a longer card. I get I could cut down a closed ended one but I would prefer to just get the right part.
Are there any /diy/ methods to help the pain/sensitively of a chipped tooth? I bit into a BB from a pheasant I shot last year and chipped one of my back teeth. I haven't had a meal all day because it hurts so damn much to chew.

I bought this Stanley block plane and I'm in the process of refurbishing it. This is my progress after 9001 hours on an extra-extra coarse DMT diamond stone. I'll of course get it more polished, but I'm not sure I'm done flattening it yet.
Additionally: what angle do you sharpen your chisels to? What about plane irons? Do you micro-bevel?
>>1050508 It's taking for fucking ever to get to the sides.
>>1050515 There aren't any scratches there. I'm using an extremely rough diamond stone. It's very obvious when it touches the metal. I've also used a sharpie to more accurately track where I'm rubbing. The sharpie stays untouched.
My stone is 8" x 3", this plane is substantially smaller than that. Less risk of rounding.
>painting trim white >previous painter went outside the lines What do? Do I paint the trim and leave his fuck up showing till homeowner pays for body to be painted... Or do I make it look like I fucked up too and cover his errors?
>>1050374 Can't you just paint the wall (since lighter colour don't worry about fucking up too much, a little bit here and there won't hurt yet do your best to cut perfectly) and let it cure, then tape and use a good flexible brush to paint the brick work?
Hey /diy/, I have this transformer I made from microwave transformer primaries that I'm trying to use to transform down the impedance of something.
Thing is I'm using three primary coils and from what I can gather they are about 100 - 105 turns each. I split one of the coils to try to get it to half the number of turns so that my turn ratio should be about 1.5 to 1. However, when I use the transformer the primary current reads 17 amps and the secondary reads 6.3. What gives? The resistance of two uncut coils is the same at about .4 ohms. The open circuit current... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
To add, the cores are two E cores put together. They have different cross sectional areas. There is not a really bad air gap between them and there are no shunts, so I don't think leakage inductance would be the problem. I'm not an EE though.
>>1050398 They're not extremely different, but the primary is on the slightly bigger one. The cores are the same width, just the one holding the primary is maybe 3 mm or 4% longer. So is some of the flux leaking out the bare ends? I thought all the flux would be transferred to the smaller one, just limited by the smaller one. Just tested the voltages to be 160 : 120. I'll put the primary on the smaller core and see what happens. Thanks anon.
You guys will probably insult me but I'm trying to learn and have to ask, even though it will be confusing as fuck since I can't really explain, neither I know the proper nomenclature.
Anyway, I was trying to install a fluorescent in the kitchen and it had some kind of piece like pic related where the cables connected with, the problem is that said piece held the cables by some kind of spring or friction alone and it was fucking difficult to unplug it once I have connected them.

Find a slim tapered steel rod (ice-pick) and carefully work it in beside the wire. The steel probe will spread the spring teeth enough to remove the wire. You can then remove the steel probe because the spring clip is unable to bite into the steel enough to trap it.
Hey /diy/, I did some googling and didn't find any great ideas on what I'm looking for.
I want to make a small, shitty looking old wood box. It has to hold up enough to make it through the mail, but other than that it just needs to look old, rough and generally shitty. You know, stained, dirty, mismatched paint, rough wood. Something you'd find somewhere spooky. It'll be small, no more than 3"x3"x4". It only needs to open once.

Hey /diy/ i went out and bought a nitro powered rc plane second hand but practically new. Ive got nearly no experience in the technology behind todays world of rc, problem is I do not know what transmitter to buy to bind it with. the reciever is a spektrum and ive been told any transmitter eith dsm should be okay but I cant seem to find one thats not in the hundreds also thats mode 2. I wouldnt mind paying alot for a transmitter so long as it will definitly bind with it, i just want confirmation first. Probably not the place to post this but I thought id give it a shot.
>>1050089 Yeah sorry i shouldve said ive got a bit of experience flying foam planes just saw this for a really good price and been a trainer i thought it was perfect. Didnt think of getting a new reciever also, I'd feel alot better going through hobbyking, thanks for the help
Getting myself a P4AC 4.1 and a GeForce 1060. But I don't want it to just lay open on the desk so I'm pondering on a way to find a fitting case or create one. The size should be around 150*150 *40-50 mm (W*H*D), made out of aluminium. With that I can fit the gpu, a psu and strong enough fans.
>>1049875 Yeah, good question. He told me he'd pay for materials if I want to fix it. I've got a good amount of free time on my hands and would like to learn some new skills. Also, if I have to be here for the next 3 years, would rather it look nice.
having a litter problem and was hoping someone with some experience could give me a hand. The other day my wife noticed water spots above the sink in my downstairs bathroom. Peeling back the drywall I found pic related, which is the drain pipe for my upstairs shower. I've run the shower on both hot and cold for a while and haven't see any leaks or things like that. This leads me to believe that it may be condensation. I don't know how to take care of this as there is no room for insulating the pipes with that foam stuff. If anyone has an... Comment too long.
