In looking to buy an air compressor. Many for trump work but also for framing and roofing on occasion. What do you recommend? Everyone I know likes Bostitch and Porter cable for the money. Nothing heavy duty, info home renos and like 90% of it is just for trim work.
>>1032688 Well Sanborn isn't no name crap so it'd be good investment. Where I work we sell a smallish Portable one and a big ass workshop one and both sell frequently and everyone has generally good things to say about them
I'm building a fallout shelter. What's the best way to build a strong shelter whilst keeping the cost relatively low. I have 30 square meters to work with maximum as that's the limit before I'd need to get planning permission here in the UK. Feel free to make plans on paint or whatever and post them here.
>>1029486 Everything you need to know about building fallout shelters including examples is in the internet.
Why are you asking here? Yes, really. Too lazy to Google?
Check out the Internet Archive. When nuclear war was likely, the US government performed atmospheric nuclear testing and validated fallout and blast shelter designs. ("Duck and cover" wasn't a joke. If you are not too close to fry a blast wave can still spray you with broken glass and rubble just like a car bomb.)
Now go do your homework. It's interesting stuff and you'll learn some history.
Fallout shelters are not blast shelters. Fallout shelters do not need to be made from reinforced concrete. They do, however, need to be far away enough from blast zones to survive.
You need to study NBC warfare to figure out if building a shelter makes sense. If you live near a target city or base you are better off moving away from an attack as fast as possible and keep going.
The Cold War is over so the risk of strategic nuclear war is trivial. Your time would be better spent improving your life to understand what is LIKELY to threaten your health and safety. I'm a Cold War vet who spent enough time learning about nuclear war to laugh at noob prepping but know how to prep properly. (The result of that is I don't prepare for strategic nuclear war. I prepare for common natural disasters like hurricanes instead.)
If you want an excuse to build an extended basement workshop then do that instead. If you live in a tornado zone build a fucking tornado shelter which is not a fallout shelter. A fallout shelter can be a robust aboveground shelter with sealed doors and windows plus a filtration system and airlock. The military had portable kits for that purpose.
If the media made you afraid, read how they profit from your ignorance. You might want to get into the fearfag writing biz yourself:
So my muffler blasted off my mower the other day, unfortunately leaving the threaded piece inside the engine, with only the small ring part that was inside the main muffler body protruding. Unlike the pic where it was removed properly.
Any attempts to budge it with a wrench or pliers have failed, no amount of wd40 had made a difference. Any tips or am I stuck with a 140db mower?
Hey Diy, i'm kinda poor right now but I would like to make a nice gift for my girlfriend. I'm pretty good at drawing and writing. I already made her a portrait and i thought about writing a poem... but we're not yet THIS close for me to be declaring love to her. Any good ideas?
>>1031063 >How viable is it to buy a parcel of land for <$3k It will have to be someplace no one wants to live, and probably with no services on it, or otherwise the land would cost more than $3k. So either someplace thats shit or someplace that is out in the boondocks. That said, its entirely possible. Out in Oklahoma I knew a guy that was selling 30 acres of bare land for $10k. Only problem was you had to live in Oklahoma.

>>1030091 But that's its biggest strength. Because the pull stroke straightens the blade out, the blade and subsequent kerf can be made very very narrow. Push saws need a thick fucking blade to keep it from folding in on itself. They also barf out a pile of sawdust that you generate while they tire your ass out.
Are there speaker specialist or tutorials? I am looking for the basis, as I plan to keep inside hollow and add there secret small garden. Will most likely build stereo speakers with 2 active subs built in and 3-way splitter for the speakers. I aim to build decent sounding speaker. Planned measurements: 30x30x130cm
>>1024562 gave me the idea of sticking weed into water proof bag and putting it into water cooling reservoir in pc case while using pastel dye since that stuff usually is non see through.
>>1024558 just make it like you would a normal cupboard or drawer. how ever, keep it sealed from where speakers will be. youll need tight tolerances or something to absorb vibrations or shit will shake open
Hi folks I have an rf31 mill wired for 230v with a nema 6 plug. It will run on 115 with adjustment to the motor. I have by a 115 receptacle wired straight to the breaker. My question.. I don't want to replace the cord, and I don't want to add more breakers for 230v. Can I wire in a nema6-20 receptacle into my 115v line and have my mil run happily provided I keep the hot and neutral matched on my plug?
Hi 4chan I think this may be my last resort. And I may of found something not even you can do.. So about two months ago my girlfriend was on facebook and see a picture of a light shade that cast's a shadow on the walls like a forest. And says I want this for my birthday find it for me. So I tracked it down to find there only like 30-50 of them made and cost about £4100. Now she knows we can't afford that not on a light shade. It was put to one side and now her birthday is coming up and it got me to thinking about 3weeks ago that maybe there some way to make one..... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Because of this quote. Basically being the youtube version of click bait. I demand anyone who reads this thread to avoid any answers until OP lurks more and how to write a proper thread post. Asking the questions he wants real answers too and that it.
I'm sorry im not shore what click bait is. I would think your trying to imply I want someone to look it up on YouTube to get view's. If that was the case would I not of put a link or name of the YouTube video ? As for asking the right question. Please is there blueprints/diagrams to make a light shade that will project a shadow of a forest on to my bedroom walls ?
Hello. I made basic stepup from schematic picrel, and transistor eems not working, o-scope not showing switching, always is about same voltage as vcc 4V from li-ion. Im sure there is no shortcut, can anyone help? Did i fuged transistors with soldering?
I've got two of these plywood things that I was told to paint black. Well, I figured that painting plywood is a waste of paint, so I decided to apply a wood veneer to it. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00755CBY6/ Apparently Home Depot does not stock wood veener (or plastic sheet), so I'm going to be ordering everything online. For that purpose, I'm here to make sure that I'm not missing anything so I can order it all at once.
I figure I'll need wood filler to cover the screws and the imperfections in the plywood, especially along the sides. Everywhere... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1033859 Certainly but the room this thing is going in has some quite expensive finish to it. This plywood thing already sticks out as it is, so I think plywood painted black would stick out quite a bit.
Found <a href="http://blog.netscraps.com/diy/heavy-duty-solar-powered-automatic-chicken-coop-door.html#comment-36576">this project</a> and got it all wired, still having issues. Basically the first timer powers the actuator on and the other timer is supposed to reverse the polarity when it comes on. When the reverse timer comes on it only stops the actuator from opening, it does not actually close the arm. Double checked all wiring and it seems good. Diagram I used is on the blog link above and attached is the setup I am trying to get to work. Thanks in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ello chaps, anyone here got any experience in making neon (or other noble gas) signs and sculptures?
I'm really interested in trying to make some, and I have some questions that I couldn't easily find on google:
1. What kind of glass are the gas tubes made of? Quartz? Silica? Pyrex of some kind?
2. What kind of torches do they use to bend and shape? Depends on the kind of glass I suppose
3. Is there a good way to get into the craft? I have experience sealing, backfilling, vaccuming, and forming quartz tubes, but nothing as intricate as a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1033199 OK. So after a tiny bit more investigation it turns out that you can very well use quartz tubing for neon signs, it's just that people more often use soda lime or pyrex (borosilicate) glass tubes because of the lower melting point. Basically you don't need to have an oxy-natural gas or acetelyne torch to work it.
But the good news is that I have a lot of quartz tubes. And i have a oxy nat gas crossfire burner. Not to mention a shitload of Argon. So I think now I will just look into buying some electrodes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is this fixable? The spot was less big yesterday, but like a dickhead, i took the monitor apart to try and see if i could see anything wrong and made it much worse. I think it has a LED matrix backlight
I'll spare u the sob story Bottom line is I wanna make a table for my uncle who's confined to his bed, pic related, for a large part of the day. The table has gotta clip to the handles I circled, So I just need help finding a place where I can buy said clips. The handles have a circumference of 4.5 inches. After that, finding a piece of plastic/wood to attach said clips to shouldn't be much of a problem.
The overbed table is a what I would go with. In DIY spirit though I think I would take a couple scrap pieces of wood maybe an inch thick something like 4x4 and use a hole saw approximately the same diameter as the handrail and cut them on the edge of those pieces. Fasten those to the base of the table and that takes care of one side.
The other side perhaps use the same method but have the semicircle cuts facing downward. For a better visual as you look towards the bed from the feet with the table in place the left side would have wood supports that look like a backwards C and the right side would be an upside down C. That setup would be something that could quickly be set in place and removed. If the supports are placed far enough apart you wouldn't have to worry about the table sliding.
For his safety it should be something that can be easily removed. If you need a more secure connection you could drill 4 holes-2 in each rail equidistant apart, and bolt a piece of rod through each hole. Drill 4 matching holes on the table and the table can sit right on top of the holes. The base can be coned out to allow the bolts to more easily find the holes with a step bit and a little bit of sanding with a Dremel cone bit.
Frankly the picture >>1033059 is designed for such things, but I am assuming for some reason this won't work for you (too small, no floor space, etc). That's all I have for now. First idea works if you don't own the bed, second idea is better if you don't mind a little modification to the rails.
You need to follow the water all the way to the source to have no doubt it's coming from your AC unit. Not a A/C tech, but it the many houses I've lived/been at i've never seen the drain pipe anywhere other than the side of the house into the grass next to the cooling unit
