I've recently gotten into a few projects that require the use of tools that I don't own, nor do I really have the proper space/safety equipment to set up (grinders, a welder, basic metalworking stuff). Would anyone here know if there is some sort of space that might have tools like this available for public renting/use? I've checked the local hackerspace (I live in Ottawa ,ON) but it caters mostly to electronics design rather than heavier stuff. I've also been using the machine shop at my university, but they're hesitant letting students... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A family member got me this for the holiday, /diy/. I have my gallon of shitty beer fermenting in my closet, but I'm not particularly a beer drinker. I see how all of the parts are reuseable (Probably to sell more of their beer making refills)but I was thinking something a bit different.
What else would I need to convert this into a still for gin?
>>922923 Brewing and distilling are two totally separate things that take totally different equipment, and distilling at home isn't recommended for two reasons: One, if you fuck up you can blow your house off it's foundation, and two, if you do it wrong you can literally poison yourself to death.
Sup, /diy/nos I have a car problem and although I just checked out /o/ for the first time, there was nothing specific about whether asking dumb questions about auto repair was allowed or if you're just supposed to use the board to masturbate to amazing cars. I know nothing about cars but its pretty obvious some jackass popped the hood and ripped... something out. Even though I plan on making repairs myself, If this isn't a /diy/ thing, that's cool and sorry for wasting your time. Direct me to the right board and I'll annoy them. I can post more pics of......

>>922889 That's not 'free energy' OP, that's a transducer; you're converting mechanical energy (moving the magnet) into electrical energy, by inducing a current in the coil.
Now, if you want to play around with something, try this: Put up a long-wire antenna outside your house, as high up as you can get it. For bonus points, tune the length for 1000kHz (middle of the AM broadcast band). Sink a 6-foot ground rod into the ground for a good, solid earth ground point. Connect that to the lowest voltage...

>>922893 What if we poison the water in mexico so that it genetically modifies all newborns so that they are slightly magnetic. Then, instead of building a wall, we build a massive coil they have to walk past to get into america, thereby generating electricity. I know it's not "free," but it's free for us.
I was cutting a metal hook in bathroom and didn't cover the area hit by sparks so now I got miniscule metal shards embedded in the ceramic plates. Any protips on how to ge it out? I tried to scrape it off with metal scrape ut it just made it worse.
>>922883 sparks melt into glass and ceramic this happens very often during bodywork on cars mechanics just dont give a fuck welding masks have plastic shields in front of black glass to protect it from sparks >>922755 Those tiles are fucked, even if you removed sparks youre left with holes in enamel It would be easier to replace tiles And if you leave tiles as is, sparks will start to rust and form stains
>>922744 I'm not a fridgie, but that seems legit to me. Why not mount the hanger for the evaporator assembly between the fans though? It's dead space anyway in terms of airflow and will make for a much more compact unit.
"Digital thermostat + Display" = some sort of remote controller?
>>922747 I've got a digital thermostat that runs off 240V and has a 240V relay controlled by some kind of microcontroler with a thermister. Basically it just lets me set a temperature range (HiLo or LoHi) with a digital readout rather than relying on the analogue thermostat.
I originally bought it to put in a fridge that was misbehaving, but now I've just got it laying around.
The odd offset design for the window unit is to minimize the length the pipes have to be and the distance the window has to be... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>922744 do you already have any components? the design seems fine but the details are in the physical characteristics. what size evaporator? what size condenser? what size compressor? Are your condenser fans sized correctly to maintain an adequate high side pressure? why are you running 24v fans when you have 240v supplied? are your evap fans sized to maintain proper suction pressure and superheat?
also, you don't need a 'moisture trap'. they are used mostly on refrigeration systems and not necessary on... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello this is my first time posting here and I need some help.
I want to buy a book on vegetable/herb/fruit growing since its something I want to get into. Ideally it should be one huge tome full of everything I need but one introductory book + one advanced seems reasonable too.
I have tried googling some recommendations but have not found anything that I like, most books seem to be full of pictures but little useful information. Can anyone suggest anything?
>>922727 I'm not a troll, reviews on youtube and sellerS sayed it was quality tools so i searched just answers. They give good instructables. So you think velleman is shit for professionnal repairs, ok man i notice your answer.
>>922734 Velleman is best-known for electronics kits, it's all hobbyist stuff (they're also not the OEM). It might be OK for you, that's why I asked what you were going to use it for. Just don't expect the same performance as a Hakko/Weller/Ersa.
My mothers back veranda/patio is old and some boards have broken as people walk on them. I've put my foot through it, so has my mother and both my sisters. However a week or so before Christmas, my youngest sister fell through a board and servilely hurt her foot. So mum decided enough was enough and it was time to replace the broken boards
How ever given that she doesn't like spending money, she decided to do it her self/rope me into doing it. Also she doesn't want to replace all the boards, just the broken... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>922717 besides what >>922722 said about you being an autistic spazz over a deck, you'll need to do a bit of both.
you should be taking measurements to begin with to know how many boards you're going to need, what kind of lumber to buy, how you'll be transporting them and how you'll be fastening them. however having a bit of leftover isnt a big deal if you all can find a use for some remnants of the boards, its better to have too much than too little...

sup /diy/. milfag here, ive been planning on getting out at the end of my contract but dont know for sure what i want to do when i grow up. ive been thinking about doing something like electrician, because electricity and electronics are hobbies of mine, and id rather do 1-2 years of trade school instead of 4+ years of college. i cant stand being in regular school so im pretty sure i wont do well, and im more of a hands on guy anyway. any electricians care to chime in on how they like/dislike it? if the are happy with their career choice or not? tips, tricks, or anything...

There are a lots of different kinds of electricians jobs. You can work in a factory repairing and replacing stuff. Working in construction can be physically hard but can pay well if you are in the union in the USA. Had a high school friend who worked for GE and traveled all over the world working on generators on dams. After working as an electrician for a few years I decided to do sound and video which is a low voltage electricain. The work has been interesting but I probably would have made more money being a union construction electricain. For me work needs to be interesting... Comment too long.
