I have 2 5 (possibly 10) gallon aquariums. I want to buy a 30 gallon but the nearest one is so fucking far away (approx. 30 mi. away). So I was thinking I could just merge two aquariums I already have. Essentially I want to remove the bottom glass of the top tank and then "glue" it to the other using silicon. What I've read is that doing something like this could cause excessive water pressure but I don't if that applies to small tanks like mine. What are your thoughts? Will it work? I wanted to do side-by-side merge but I don't have the space. Pic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1039752 (a) If you were picking up a 30-gallon tank that was 1/2 a mile away, how would you do it? Walking, Bus, What? NOW, If you would drive half a mile to pick up one, 30mi dont make any difference, thats like half an hour. (b) wtf, you want to cut out the bottom of one tank, and 'glue it on' to the top of the other? First, fishtanks dont work like that - it goes by surface volume area, essentialy, your tank would support = (zero) more fish, just, be deeper. And 2nd, the idea is so fucking retarded, I'm...

>>1039752 Water pressure has nothing to do with the size (volume) of the tank, but everything to do with the height.
I doubt that doubling the height of the water column in a short wall tank like that will cause any immediate problems. But it does increase that static load on the surface which may alter its behavior. Similarly, the joints may not be strong enough even if the glass itself is.
If you want to join them then make a water bridge with the two tanks sitting side by side. Safer and much cooler.
I'm looking for some help. My good carrier for wholesale e liquid that is pre made sold out and now charges an arm and a leg, so I have no option but to make my own. I need to know a reputable company for flavor concentrate that is vg based not oil based. Most companies I come across don't specify. Same goes for liquid nicotine. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated
Wizard Labs. You're going to thank me. I've been using them for 3-4 years. Only complaint I have is they run out of stuff frequently. They use extract rather than lab made nicotine and you can buy small 8mL bottles of flavor for $1.50.
I recommend using 100mG/mL in PG base if you have enough sense to work with liquid that strong. PG is much easier to work with after pulling it from the freezer and 100mG is cheaper and makes the math easier. Also recommend getting some glass to store it in. A 50mL graduated cylinder and 1mL pipettes for flavoring... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/. I bought some magic eye tubes that I hope to later use in a project. Only thing is I'm not exactly sure of the schematic. Does the 6.3V go to both pins? Pin 1 has between 0 and -15 volts or is it 0-15V?
Pins 4&5 are the heater pins. Put 6.3V across them. For multiple tubes, wire the heaters in parallel. For pin 1, it's probably 1 to 15V. I'm too lazy to check the datasheet, but you should probably do that. If you can't find a datasheet, you may find the part in a tube receiving manual.
Anyone have any experience working with horn, specifically creating a drinking horn?
Managed to snag myself a pair from a farmer I purchase my delicious beef from - and decided to make it a project of sorts.
Upon browsing the interwebs, and dodging all advice given by neopagan neckbeards, I went with the following:
1)Boil for ~3 hours 2)Take a corkscrew to the bone bit, came out with all of the cartilage (that's what's between the bone and the horn, right?) 3)Scrub the interior with soapy hot water and a bottle brush (fixed it in my electric screwdriver for speed and laziness) 4)Fill with vodka, leave for 48 hours
Now, here I was hoping the smell issue would quit. Not so much. The horns smelled like beef stock. Not bad, necessarily, but not what I want either. I guess if they weren't fresh, the smell would be far less palatable.
As I was inbetween stages, and it seemed (and was) fun, I clean and polished the exterior of one of the horns - first I carved out all the black indents and cracks, then went over with increasingly smoother sandpaper, finishing with 3000 (I think, it's in the garage).
5) Filled the horns with vinegar, left for 48 hours 6) Checked - was unsure whether I was smelling beef stock or vinegar. 7) I think it's mostly vinegar now. However, it's been a while, and even with using baking soda the vinegar smell persists, and the rim tastes sour.
Any advice how to proceed? How would I go about decorating - I know I can carve it, but would burning a pattern into it be out of the question? That would also solve the painting issue.
Anyhow, pic related, it's where I'm at with one of the horns.
The volume of liquid it can hold is about 300ml. So sort-of okay for beer, okay for wine.
Your going to want to vacuum-stabilize it with some kind of resin (probably epoxy) if you're going to drink out of it. I've also heard of horn being stabilized with superglue, but not sure if that's food safe.
Traditional method would have been to coat the inside with pitch or wax and maintain it as needed.

Will this work? Im trying to add a switch operated USB port to my car using my fusebox as a power source and some kind of bolt or screw as a chassis ground. I'll be using a multimeter or circuit tester to find a place that would be suitable for this. Finally, I will be using a toggle switch because I think they're nifty.
I live in nyc, and like almost everyone else here I have room mates to afford living here. My current bedroom was originally a dining room, so while it's really big it has no door and is right next to the kitchen. I fixed this by putting up some black out curtains in the entrance from the kitchen to my room. This gave me privacy while allowing my room mates to use the kitchen without disturbing me. The problem is recently we got a new room mate and he goes out of his way to be a dick. He comes home around 4am and goes to the kitchen to eat. That in itself isn't... Comment too long.

Technical solutions to social problems don't work well so turn into an aggressive asshole after talking with your other room mates. Otherwise his dominance over you will increase because he's toxic.
A large freestanding 4x4 cage screwed together around and incorporating the bed (and with storage above the bet since any unused vertical space might as well be exploited) establish space which feeble curtains will not. You could put panels and even a door on it with sound deadening.

How plausible do you think it would be to build a small table like this?
I'm thinking it's just wooden cubes (pine or whatever, maybe something lighter like foam core or something, not too sure) with holes drilled and magnets inserted, veneered over and then anchored with wires.
I'm no magnets expert but I'm guessing it wouldn't be that hard to make.
>>1038690 I dunno if you watched the video senpai but I'm guessing not because they very clearly use small steel cables to stop them pushing apart. I think I even said "anchored with wires" in the first post.
You are certainly right though, different configurations may look better/worse depending n where you put the wires I would imagine.
Ancient mechanicfag here. I wouldn't worry about it. That's why oil pickups have screens. It probably crumbled over time and is wildly unlikely to disturb anything. It won't damage an oil pump even if ingested.
You'd be surprised the amount of shit which accumulates in old engines with zero harm done.
>>1038183 I'd rather drill it myself out of a blank and paint or punch the markings.(or even dymo)
I've always found the elaborate range markings on pots pretty pointless in synths. why would you want to clutter up the panel with a range of 1-10 with 3 steps between each, when its all about adjusting and tweaking until you "like" it anyway. the only place you'd need precision is on a VCO, where you should use a tuner anyway.

Fuckin 60's circuit boards man, I'm trying to do a total recap on this stereo console, but at this point I dont know if its even worth the headache.i have the schematic and service man, but still. I've worked on 70s boards MUCH better than this.
>each board is hard wired to others making individual removal inpossible >capacitors wired to resistors >caps hiding under other wires >no clean organizaton
>>1038163 This has plenty of strips, which I shoud've expected but still surprised me. I downloaded the schematics before I bought the unit, and it seemed straightfoward until I saw it for myself.
To replace all the caps would cost me about as much as I bought the console for. Debating to just buff up the wood, re lube the record unit and dust out and reselling it. I love recap jobs but this concerns me
How does diy like this stuff? Cost around $100. I plan on buying the clear coat as well. Any tips or advice? Or should I just take it back? Looked up videos on YouTube which resulted in a few videos of guys just blabbering about how they hate it. I have plenty of experience with painting and such (I'm a maintenance tech) but not really sure about this product.
>>1037899 Dunno about that brand, but I put the rustoleum version down in my garage ~10yrs ago and the basement ~3yrs ago.
The garage I did the color coat and then topped it with the clearcoat+traction grit. It wore very well, it's only just now starting to chip off a bit in areas that I'd expect (right along the expansion seam of the concrete). The clearcoat does yellow in direct sunlight though so the 3/4" of the slab on the outside of the garage door looks odd. I'd have stopped the clearcoat at... Comment too long.

Check contractors forums. I found many useful things on them consumers never know, like that "premium" elastomeric chain store roof coating is a sponge and a water trap. (Too bad I'd applied some to my shipping container, but it came off.)
>>1036604 guitar pedals are piss easy to be honest. if you are too much of a newb to use protoboards and source parts you can get pcbs with parts relatively cheap. if you got 10 thumbs you can buy kits with a predrilled chassis for a bit more.
kits are a good place to start, then go over to protobaords and cheap ebay parts later. the diecast alu boxes are also cheap on ebay, aswell as jacks and stompswitches.

I came from Norway from a hike, and I managed to drag a decent piece of pretty white quartz with me. I want to drill a hole into it to put a lamp into it to create some ultimate hippie pussy magnet, anything I'm missing about the process?
Diamond drill bits, starting from small bit and going up incrementally to a good sized hole seems like a good idea in general. I probably want to cool the piece with running water while drilling into it, would that sound about right?

>>1036297 As in, make the light come at it from just underneath, no hole? It's not quite clear enough to make it work nicely like that. Might not be the best piece of quartz either but hey, it's my piece of quartz which is what matters.
Diamond drill bits can be quite expensive, especially large ones, id recommend using a small drill bit (which would decrease the chance of shattering) to make a ring of deep holes that are quite close together, then using a medium bit, widen each hole so it connects with the neighbouring hole in the ring.
once youve got the ring complete, its a simple matter of removing the 'rod' in the center by drilling a slightly shallower hole down its centre and then tapping a thick nail into the hole to shatter it
The power was out today so my garage door did not open and I did not have my house keys on me so I tried looking for my spare keys which were in a hidden fake sprinkler.
Here is where I fucked up: I had my lawn resodded a few months ago, and completely neglected the spare key and it rained hard just a few minutes ago. So I had to claw the mud up to find it. So I eventually find a sprinkler head and start pulling at it and finally twist it out (attributing the force I needed to the mud sucking it back in) only to realize that it was NOT my...

>>1040307 when it's light, go dig out around the sprinkler a tiny bit. They come apart in to four or five pieces a filter and a spring. It's not really that complicated. You'll probably figure it out just looking at it for a second.
They aren't super strong. Check the part you pulled out, you might have broken the bit that retains it in the sprinkler head. It's not a big deal to replace, just go down to home store and buy the thing and unscrew your old one and put the new one back in.
I've got some work ahead of me where I need to look at my phone a lot but keep my hands free, so I'm trying to work on a setup where I can mount my phone to my wrist. The tricky part is I need my phone to have vertical orientation. Like if my forearm was horizontally in front of me, the phone would be vertical, as if the phone and arm made a little cross. Kind of awkward looking, I know, but I'm not making this for everyday use.
Most arm and wrist mounts for phone are made exercise so the phone rests horizontally, which isn't what I'm looking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I got a set of these, they say they're cast aluminum and I want to get them cleaned and in a condition it's usable. I've read cream of tartar and hot water with plenty of scrubbing and that did clean it up a bit. Is there anything that would work better?
Here is a picture of the set. There is a base they go on when using, but that's the same material. I'm also curious if I should do anything with the handles. They're solid and don't have any issues. Just wondering if there is something I could use to protect it a bit more that can handle a bit of heat
>>1039967 Ebay or aliexpress but be prepared to wait a month for your stuff if you're buying chink parts.
So far I haven't gotten a single faulty component which is surprising. Resistors, LEDs, ICs, LCDs. Everything well within specs. Unlike the local suppliers which are 10-20x as expensive and ironically less reliable.
>>1040072 Good to know thx. Yes I'm not unknown on importing components, did it for years but I only had 1 supplier but it went bankrupt. Haha Lcd's have (atleast for me) almost always been a bad investment. One time I had 3 PSPv3 screens broken in package, but to be fair they compensated me quite well but still. Another time I was sent the screen sheets... Not with the chips inside or anything just the sheets.
Hi, all. I’m an aspiring locksmith. I’ve bought myself the kit and a whole bunch of practice locks. I’ve been recently practicing lockpicking my locks in my house. One such lock is a deadbolt and normally I don’t have any problems with it but when the lock releases, it gets stuck. I’ve posted the video to show what I’m talking about. I’ve unlocked it from both directions, but it always gets stuck.
Let's talk tool storage /diy/ I'm considering getting this box. mostly the cabinet for now, and buying the additions later. I realize that Harbor Freight is generally frowned upon in most any job that requires tools, but I've read good reviews of this cabinet.
I also like the Milwaukee 60" work station, Kobalt 41" cabinet and chest, and the simalar Milwaukee product.

Buy the Harbor Freight box, its pretty good for the price. Garage Journal and SlickDeals both love it, FWIW. And realize you are getting fucked no matter who you buy the box from, the markups are insane.
