>>1046030 Is he reading the Society for Underwater Technology Magazine? I was president of a chapter of that shit lol. Pretty pointless group 2bh, but the main office paid for some nice catering and shit for our meetings.
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
>>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.
Theyre about $3.49 plus postage on Amazon, FFS. Save up your paper round cash and buy one, then, you can scribble away happily on your friends forehead AND you've made a Chinaman happy (his family can eat for a week) - what a time to be alive.
>>1045568 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.
>>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.
The best possible thing to do is bomb the place You will never get all of them with just traps. Remove any cardboard boxes you have in the place as well, they like to eat the glue in them and they are perfect hiding places.

I modeled picture related a while ago, and only recently have I had the time or money to actually build it. I'm going to be getting a new computer rig pretty soon, and my current desk won't fit it.
What kind of wood would y'all recommend for a computer desk? I know something hard for the main 'desk' surface, so writing doesn't scratch it to shit, but beyond that I don't know what'd look good, last long and not break the bank. I'm pretty good at woodworking, just that I've never built indoor furniture, most of the stuff... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1045273 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.
I want to cast pic related out of aluminium or bronze. Originally I was going to cut it from foam using a hot wire cutter but I realised that will leave 4 edges. The tolerances need to be close to this model I made. It's 17cm long. What methods of casting should I use? I know about styrofoam and lost wax, how should I accurately transfer this 3d model into wax or styrofoam?
Machine your dildo on a lathe faggot. And if you don't have one, can't get access to one or God forbid don't know how to use one, than you don't deserve to be a man and just go buy one at a sex shop like a faggot you are.
For some reason some of the buttons on a tv remote have stopped working. Took it apart and cleaned it, no dice.
Other buttons still work just fine, it's the larger ones in the middle that don't want to work. Tested the working buttons by touching metal, and they functioned as expected....touched the non-working ones, and nothing.
Confirm no emissions are occurring from the ir led in front. 1: view the led with a camera on a phone or something. Dslr cameras usually have ir filters. 2: probe + and - with multimeter Using either of these methods, tap the buttons that arent working. If no blink, then: Try some new batteries. Some ir signals require more powa than others. If youre a lazyfag like me and dont want to buy new batteries, take a bunch of old batteries, confirm theyve all got atleast 1.4v, and put them in parallel for double the available amperage.

Would it be a good idea to use a car seat as a chair? I'm thinking of buying pic related for 25 euro and putting something under it so it can be used as a comfy chair for my desk. I don't want it to have wheels so it should be easier right?
Hey /diy/ I'm sure this isn't the right board, but I need help. I have a 1990 Whirlpool electric Dryer (Model# LE6150WSX0) and I'm having problems with it overheating.
Problem: The top, back, and sides, as well as my clothes, are extremely hot. It happened two days ago where I set my timer to 60 minutes, and I checked it at the 40 minute mark to find that the machine had stopped. I then hit the start button again, only for it to immediately beep at me and turn off. For reference I do not overload my machine and always clean the lint trap before each... Comment too long.

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. I've found that almost always someone comes-along who can help, but it might take days. If that's the case with you, bump once a day or so (slow board) and hope for the best. If you're lucky someone will come-along sooner than later!
I don't know clit about these things so I can't help, but best of luck!
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.
>>1042928 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
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.
Come watch me rebuild this piece of crap bench. It was left behind by the previous owners of my house and I finally got around to it. This was the only picture I could find anywhere of what it initially looked like but you get the idea.
>>1042316 I pressure washed the bench to see what I'm working with. The wood is in awful shape and will need to be replaced. The planks are pretty thin so I'll make thicker pieces when it's time. The cast iron is all rusted and there's some mismatched hardware.
Found this blender somebody threw away. I was checking continuity on a bunch of components since it does not turn on. Found the fuse is broken. Does it mean the appliance is broken somewhere elsetoo? Also, what kind of fuse should I replace it with? I live in Europe so 220v mains.
Pic related, black thing in the bottom right is the broken fuse
Hello /diy/. What exactly goes on under the hood of computer software designed to simulate electrical machinery? I'm guessing it has something to do with calculating the magnetic field and moment at millions of infinitesimal volumes, then somehow deriving a force field, and then finally perhaps the torque on some central shaft?
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1048882 >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...

>>1048882 >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.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is there any way to make my router extremely good. Or just my internet. Also if I got a shit ton of cheap routers and hooked them all together with ethernet switches and shit would it make my WiFi better? Or is that not a thing
>>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.
>>1047884 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.
