Trying to "retire" my old 360 controller and put it in a display case while taken apart. Not sure where to get the shadow box or what size i should get. Ive also seen people use Styrofoam blocks with spaces cut out to fit the peices. How should i go about doing this
I rented an old house this summer (the house is about 50 years old). It's my first house and I'm really happy with my choice. However, the bathroom stinks really bad... Any suggestions? I've already tried buying one of those bathroom air fresheners, but it seems now the bathroom smells like shit and perfume.
>>927944 I did, it says that it will work if the thermostat reads less than 3 C on the pipe but I applied the thermostat to the place there the pipe is frozen so I imagine it should be cold enough there.
>>927908 "new house"? Your window is single plane and there is gap in the frame to let air in otherwise it cannot be this serious, this is a fucked up window install, you will need to replace the entire frame if you ever hope to fix this, no amount of plastic sheeting will protect you from single plane glass plus a non-standard shit frame
I want to make an air filter using water as the filtration medium. I was going to try making a small prototype before making something bigger, so I was thinking of using a 2 gallon bucket and some acrylic tubing. Would a cpu fan be powerful enough to push a column of air down through a tube through the center of the bucket and into the water? I was thinking of a 1-1.5 inch tube.
>>927893 Also, what would be a good power supply for the fan? I have some spare phone chargers, but they either have too low voltage output, or too low/high amperage output. For a typical cpu fan that wants 0.5, 0.7, or 1.0 amps, how many amps would be too much to power it?
>>927893 the humidity will drastically increase in your room as water will act as a humidifier. also a CPU fan will never be powerful enough, it has design flaws that makes it incompatible with pressure difference. i'm not sure but maybe use pic related ? you'll also need an air stone to make the bubbles smaller. I'm thinking of making an electrostatic precipitator, maybe it would be a good alternative for you too.
Hey guys! Im interested doing a bookshelf. I would like to do a mini book shelf that wont take up too much space inside my bedroom. Im new to /diy/ can you help me with the materials and tools i need and ideas(design) Thank you.
>>927889 > can you help me with the materials and tools Yes we can, if you show us your plans and tell us about your skills and available materails >i need and ideas(design) google "bookshelf", "cool shelf", "crazy bookshelf" or whatever. Pick a few designs, think about them, adapt them. Then present them to us. After that we can help you iron out potential problems.
a bookshelf is the simplest thing anyone can make. go to your local big-box store, look for shelving wood, it looks like the pic, and is typically 8-14 inches wide, by 8 feet long. the front side is covered in veneer so it looks good. you need 2 pieces for the sides, say 1'x5' and 5 pieces for the shelves, 1'x2'. for each shelf, drill 2 holes thru the side pieces, and drive 2-in screws thru the middle of the shelves, after drilling pilot holes. when you stand it up, it'll be all wiggly, so you need to add a cross-brace in the back to make it solid as fuck.
I stopped using gas years ago to switch to electricity only. The gas company closed and capped the meter for me as well.
Fast forward to 2016 some dude from the gas company says since we havent used it for like 10 years they need to excavate and cap the main pipeline underground for "safety resasons". I found this ridiculous. What if I want gas again in the future or sell the house to someone who does?
Is this a scam? Do they have legal right to do this? Wouldnt this bring my property value down?
>>927864 Visually check krausen and bubbling of the airlock. Apart from that just wait and check the gravity at the end. It's not like there's much you can do about it during primary fermentation. Well, apart from maybe pitching some more yeast if fermentation doesn't want to start.
I went to a vacation a month ago and when I came back, I find my pillowcase and end up like this. The dark spots you notice are happened to be molds from the moisture from my room. I tried soaking it with chlorine for a few days, and after that, nothing seem to take effect. Any help to get rid of the stains?
>>927820 Vinegar should kill it, but you'd need to wait for it to essentially die and crumble out of the fibers (assuming they have not been permanently marred by the mold) before the discolouration goes away. I'd try hitting it with vinegar, letting it sit for an hour or so, then a few days out in the sun followed by a wash.
Or, ya know, a new pillowcase from goodwill for 20c..
>>927822 I like my case because it's custom-made, and it pays double because of the stitching. I'll try anything as long as these bastards are gone. I can try hydrogen peroxide mixed with hot saltwater and chlorine and go for the overkill. How long will I leave on the basin for it to disappear instead of an hour, overnight?
My room looks very bland and depressing - there's nothing on the walls; it looks like some kind of a prison cell. What kind of /diy/ projects would you recommend to decorate my room a bit? Something which involves space, science, tech and /v/idya related photos, led lights, RaspberryPi (I have one), speakers, etc. would be nice.
So I have this spool of 12 ga pure copper, very high quality speaker wire that I purchased more than a decade ago, back when copper was pretty cheap.
Can I use two pairs of these wires, encase them in some sort of sheathing, and terminate them with a plug and socket myself? The only thing holding me back are possible code violations and how insurance might react if there's a fire somewhere in the house. Though I'm sure that if I were to make this, it would be as perfectly safe as any other extension cord you can buy. I just want to stay by the book, just in... Comment too long.

Depending on your carrier, you'll likely be covered as most policies cover general stupidity.
Enjoy it going on your claims history that a homeowner generally makes poor decisions like using speaker wire instead of wire designed to carry 120volts. >your permanent record! Yeah thats what it is, and its how actuaries set rates to insure your historically dumb ass.
Then, if you ever sold the place you'd have to upgrade it to code if it were installed to the house.
tl;dr don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey diynos! I know some will say this is an /o/ question, but I just can't deal with those retards. I just got an inheritance from an aunt. It's enough to take a year off and just drive. I want an RV, but not the flimsy crap that they try to foist off as basically a rolling hotel room. I want something I can take way north on the north american continent without worrying as much about snow, rough roads and crap like that. Would I be better off buying a pic-related, or buying a surplus military vehicle and converting it myself? Basically decent off-roading to get somewhere,... Comment too long.

>>927683 If funds, time and skill permit, I would be going ex military custom job all day every day. Milspec will always be more beefcake than civvy (unless you're paying stupid amounts of money, in which case again, should be spent on a custom solution that does everything you need if you have that kind of dosh) and you won't feel so bad about punching holes through the thing to run your own gear as you would a brand new vehicle.
>>927683 Don't go ex-military. That's way more Toughness than you need and its going to get godawful mileage, which will cost a money when gas goes back up in a couple years. Just buy a van and convert it, unless you are going to do serious off-roading.
