What are some cool DIY youtube channels?

>SV Seeker

The guy is building a massive sailing vessel in his backyard and an underwater ROV in his backyard with help from followers. One of the best youtube channels I've watched.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jC55WLdDbs

Is there anything similar to this out there? Something preferably that deals with the electronics side.

I want do go into hydroponics. No, not marihuana - for starters I thought something like salad or spinach would be easy enough.

Thing is though that I can't find any lists of the micronutrients those plants need; but this seems to be something to be written down somewhere.

This office building I am working is currently having carpets installed. Instead of rolling the whole carpet in they cut it in small square pieces then glue it in place. Whats the logic behind this? Seems they are wasting a lot of time with this. Does not make sense to me at all

>>1045690
I assume if it gets damaged they always have the option of replacing a square instead of the whole thing but you could always cut in a new piece.
>>
>>1045691
They are called carpet tiles, they come in boxes like that, no one is cutting carpet into squares that I can see. This offers a way to have carpet in heavy foot traffic areas such as offices / shops etc. Since each piece is glued individually, each tile you step onto is just as fixed as the last one, it would be near impossible to move 1 peice of carpet that size and cut it.

If it was painted on, which I doubt, you would have to repaint it. If it's a decal, which is the most likely, then you'd have to replace the decal. Either way you will ruin the collector value and probably fuck it up worse than it already is.

Does anyone know of a good tool that will work as a calculator, but also do unit conversions?

theres a browser app for everything

your standard calculator can do that with the upside down L button so you put in the fraction

it looks like a/b and then theres another button that converts it to decimal
>>
>>1045541
Write the measurement as an improper fraction. So 2 and 3/32 inches would be 67/32. Now divide the top by the bottom. 2.09375. You can do this in a matter of seconds on any standard calculator or cell phone. If you want to do it automatically I'm sure you could find a program for a graphing calculator that would do the same. If you want to kick it old school a slide rule would get you very close also.

Budget is a big consideration. Oak is pretty hardy but expensive. Furniture-grade plywood is cheaper but requires more work to look nice. You might use a cheaper base wood and veneer it with a nice wood.

All that said, I would seriously reconsider that design. The sides and bottom are very weird.

This is the right board, OP, but it's probably gonna take awhile for someone with dryer chops to come along to help you. It's a slow board.

Expanding foam.jpg
115 KB,
I have space under my bathtub that is kinda big. I was wondering if I could fill it with expanding foam to insulate it better. I have heard to do this it is imperative that you fill the tub full of water before doing this as it sets it better. The foam can also if you are not careful, lift the tub off the ground and crack it. Would it be a bad idea all together to do it? I live in northern USA so it gets pretty cold here in the winter.

Air is a great insulator which is what makes expanding foam a good insulator, it's full of air bubbles.
If you can plug any draughty gaps it should be about the same.
If you want the same effect without the worry throw in some bubble wrap or packing peanuts I guess if you like mess
>>
>>1042932
As he said stop the drafts

I think stuffing insulation around the tub would work great and it wouldn't be as permanent as using foam. If your tub cracked or need to be resurfaced i feel the foam would be a serious pain in the future.

Building code states that bathtubs are to be anchored with either foam or acoustical mud.

I use foam, because it comes in a can and isn't a sloppy mess like the acoustical mud.
Typically takes 3 cans, get the kind that says "Window and Door"

Fill tub with cold water, inject foam where the bottom of the tub is closest to the floor

Sides of the tub get packed with mineral wool insulation

Enjoy a bath that doesn't get cold or transmit sound like a drum.

Hello /diy/. What exactly goes on under the hood of computer software designed to simulate electrical machinery?

But I really am clueless. Suppose that my only initial variables are the permeability of my materials, the geometry of the rotor and stator, and the current and voltage I wish to apply to the windings. How do I go from that to actually knowing...

>something to do with calculating the magnetic field and moment at millions of infinitesimal volumes
what you do is generate a 'mesh' which is loads of polygons. for each polygon you then calculate the fields. there are algorithms for this you can look up but i can't remember the names its been a few years. then you look at whatever output you want say in your case the torque but thats quite specific and complicated to work out, usually the target is the current or voltage...

>electrodynamic theory and actually designing my own motors.

first of all, it's generally referred to as electromagnetics.

secondly, why do you want to design a motor?

finally, it is very expensive to make one custom motor. You will have to pay for tooling to make the laminations for the stator, and you will have to machine the stator and rotor to precise diameters to have a decent motor, and you will probably need custom shaped magnets for the rotor.

and...

What kind of jobs could one get with a 2 year mechanical engineering tech technician degree? Should I shoot for more? Attend the 3 year coop? Go to university after?
I'd like to make 80k+ (Canadian) and to do that, will I basically need a unique idea? Invent something?
How likely is it that I could land a firearms related job (if I moved to the USA)?

We have some of those at my company. They do assembly work. I don't mean the kind of assembly done by Chinese slave labor. When there's a new product being put together for the first time you need a skilled competent person to do it and write reports. R&D engineers are pretty bad at writing instructions and sometimes problems aren't noticed at the CAD stage.

I think some of the technicians who have been with the company for 20+ years are making $80k. That's not a realistic expectation for a technician right out of school unless you want to move...

>mechanical engineer technician
they add the word engineer to everything these days. here in australia they call it a certificate 2 in engineering which is a 6 month course in which you learn to use a drill and hand saw properly which from there you can start an apprenticeship in any of the mechanical trades like welding or locksmithing or fabrication. bear in mind you will have a qualification that doesnt actually qualify you to do anything. you'd be better off learning to restore...

So should I look in to going to university instead if my monetary goals are already so high?
I've been working as a contractor's apprentice for a few years so anything to do with handtools I know very well.
And I'm younger so 'muh generation' technology grasp is very good, I don't want to waste a few years of my life learning about programs like CAD that I could have picked up after a bit of YouTube research and a torrent.

Hallo,
I have a question the removal process of dark stains on hard wood floors.
The Floors in my rented apartment are oak slat parquet.
The Floors have been put in about 35 years ago by professionals.
There is floor heating installed under them, but it has not been turned on in 5 months.
The floors were sanded down and refinished about 3 years ago by a contractor with little experience.
I do not know which brand or type of finish was used. The finish is clear and was applied with too many layers, so there are some "bubbles" in the top Layer.
I...

Get an ethernet cable to get extremely good wifi.

>>1048300
If for some reason you can't just hard line it, you can make a reflector out of paper and tin foil to make one of the antennas somewhat directional. Most routers also have a setting to crank up the power.

>>1048300
It depends how good the routers are and how crowded your local area is. In most houses one router can cover a while floor pretty well. The 2nd floor usually needs it's own router because dipole antenna patterns.

I bought a Harbor Frieght genorator in 2005 (last one left in town before a hurricane). Fucker ran so quiet you could hold a conversation next to it and it ran 11 hours on a tank of gas. 2 years later it seized up and they replaced it for free. Still have it.

Please no bully.
