Alright /diy/, first time posting here and I have a project that's been fucking with my head. I have a dated car, a 2003 Chrysler Sebring and the headlights on it suck a whole lot of fucking dick. To compensate, I bought a pair of Plasmaglow Lightning Eyes, which are just waterproof LED strips with nothing but one 12V wire and one ground wire (pictured)
My problem is I have to wire those lights into my car, but every video or guide I've found on youtube shows fuses that I don't believe I have. Hopefully you guys can help me wire this through, and tell me... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>930140 well when do you want them on? if you want them on all the time then put in a new fuse in a spare carrier and connect them to that if you want them on with the car wire them into ignition after a fuse if you want them on with headlights then wire them into the headlights if you want them on with interior lights then wire them into interior lights if you want them on when you wash your windows wire them into your washer jets.
Inspired by the dumpster diving thread and the interesting salvage people find but may not necessarily find a use for.
Considering people around /diy/ tend to be pretty thrifty and also have an eye for the 'potentially useful', does anyone in here dabble in selling scrap metals or electronic scrap to scrapyards and recycling companies?
I've been considering dabbling in it a bit, since I consider the value of my labor negligible because I like fiddling with things in my spare time, like taking things apart or stripping wire while I watch the youtubes,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>930136 Fucking this. I used to board houses when the bank took them to help deter theft. Sometimes the houses were vacant and stripped when we got there, sometimes for months. At some point somebody realized that you can get "a lot" of money for the water meters. They started pulling the meters out of houses before the water got cut off, and since the meter is before the house shut off valve water just started dumping into the house. We found a basement where something must have got sucked over the floor drains because... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>930092 also its basically just fibreglass anon. just buy spray fibreglass. but why would you compress it? are you trying to sculpt something out of glass and think you can just compress it then hit it with a blow torch?
I'm going to be starting up a synthesizer project this upcoming semester (hopefully more than one) and am looking for the best references to learn about synth design, development, and construction.
As a physics major I already know a lot of the basics of electronics and circuits, but that's mostly stuff like V = IR and what not. I don't know how any of that applies to actually generating sounds like a synth does.
My university apparently has a collection of Bob... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'd like to know if anyone has experience with isomalt sugar?
I'd like to cast a slab of white non-translucent isomalt (about 55 per 80 per 3 cm). I found online that Cakeplay makes white isomalt ready to be melted in the microwave, which would be easier to use, but it's pretty expensive and I need lots of it to fill my cast.
Does anyone know how I can produce a great quantity of white matte isomalt with a limited budget?
Oh, also, are fire extinguishers typically made of steel? I'm hoping I can get hold of a used up disposable extinguisher and lop the top off to use it as a crucible. Although it wouldn't work for a solar forge if it got to steel-melting temperatures. Pity there's not really any way I can make a crucible for melting steel.
Hey anons! I would ask a more relevant costuming board like /cgl/ but this is more specifically related to electronics, so I feel that there are probably people with more knowledge on this than me.
Long story short, I make costumes for a local performance group and the costumes I'm helping them design at the moment feature RGB LED strips on the dress. Each dress uses roughly a full roll (5m) of LEDs, and the basic version of this dress runs flawlessly, running a single colour just fine.
However, they want the LEDs programmable via remote/iPhone/what have you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>929928 >>929924 for a choreographed light sequence, a simple timed controller, like how timed powerpoint transitions works, would work.
Anouk Wipprecht used DMX controllers to run her VW exposition. she goes into it very basically (she has a sheldon to do the programming and hardware stuff so her technical knowhow isnt terribly in depth but goes over how it worked for the show) https://vimeo.com/79291807
depending on how professional this is, it might be worth... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Arduino and many other microcontrollers can play WAV files because those are just a sequence of voltage levels you dump to a DAC. You'll probably want to connect an amplifier to that because a speaker driven directly will be quite. Have a switch trigger the sound to play when the door is opened. A reed switch or hall effect sensor will form a switch triggered by a magnet which is a popular way to implement door burglar alarms.
best i can say is don't be a cheapass. beer brewing is a hobby where you spend a good amount of money - to not save any money. _you don't do it to save money!_ if you try to save money it will not be fun.
for example: get a decent brew pot - one that's a little too big for what you need. one with a spigot perhaps. if you're gonna do this for for the rest of your life why not. seriously - look at the videos like "huehue here's how you user your new cheapass kit!" - look at that big ass lovely brew pot they use that doesn't come with...
