When I drive I can pretty much feel every little piece of gravel in the road. It's basically like that princess with the pea and mattress. I've done the thing where I press down on the corner and it doesn't bounce.
Hello, I've replaced this relay before, and it's causing me trouble again. Pic related. I'm looking at replacing it with a more modern ice cube relay, but where do I find a relay with a 24V coil that is rated for 25a/277 volts? Is there a way I could use a contactor for this instead? My only issue is that the heat requires the 240 leg through the NC side, which would be difficult with a contactor.
I've never posted here before, but I could use some advice. I know nothing about cars. at all... but the clutch in my 99 honda civic went out. lazy mechanic friend told me it was the master cylinder and left. He was supposed to help me but didnt. So I watched a bunch of Youtube videos and replaced the damn thing myself. I got it in there and miraculously didnt break anything in the process. I am now trying to bleed the line. Im familiar with the basics of this process, but when I have someone pump and hold the clutch, I turn he bleed valve bolt and it squirts fluid then... Comment too long.

Hi /diy/. I'm moving in my new appartment and I'm thinking of having a hanging bed in my new bedroom. Right now, I'm wondering how to know if the room will bear the weight. Does anyone have one? Some tips ?
I just used an angle grinder today for the first time to cut 4 posts of a former metal cabin bed down so it would just be a normal bed. Holy fucking shit it felt so good. The power it gives you just rushes through you. You can cut literally anything.
found an old one with K-XI code which apparently stands for 1995 looks like its age but has a nice motive, two pistons crossed with the text "mossimo piston pounders" above not sure if the clothing company is meant here
>>1010386 scrap wood from old construction sites, craigslist, home depot, build a saw go innawoods and cut down a tree any of those options works for acquiring wood colour wise, if you can't find an exact match, stains man
I need a trigger mechanism that will hold a fixed-wing UAV on the launch rail and release it when pressed/pulled. Are there any ready-made triggers that will survive 15kg tension or should I make my own thing?
Hey /diy/... my dad wants to hire some Mexicans to install some luxury vinyl flooring in his house and I am taking bids. The guys today suggested to leave a small space between the flooring and the baseboards and cover the space with something they described as quarter-round but smaller and they used a word for it that sounded like "Chee-moulding" but they didn't know how to spell it. Any idea what they are talking about?
So, I got a sexy photoshoot done to give to my man for his birthday. I was trying to find an app that I could "gift" or share the photo album and it be password protected between us so that he could keep it with him on his phone.
Otherwise, I'd like to make a photobook with a lock. Any ideas?
Trying to set up a mini-wood shop inside a single dorm room, problem is noise, can't have tools and saws and hammers buzzing and pounding all day. Need to do this to continue selling furniture and related items (poor fag).
University will allow for corded power tools. I have N95 masks and a big old strong box fan to deal with dust and smells from stains, poly, citrus strip, etc.
What power tools can I buy that are quiet? On the job-sites we only worked with DeWalt and Milwaukee (former carpenter's apprentice, but we really built a lot of decks), but I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay so I have a restored vintage TV set from the early 60s all tube and the thing is amazing not only from a historycall perspective
Now I have a problem, every time I trun on the thing the filament inside the crt tube light up like a light bulb at first but then dims doen and works OK
Now if the filament opened up the tv would be junk and I am a bit scared everytime I power it on the filament might go open circuit cause the first bright flash (every time its powered on )on the crt filament indicates the AC current bursts into the filament and then GRADUALLY...

Put a resistor in series and increase the supply voltage to compensate for the drop across it. Filaments have low resistance when cold and high resistance when hot (15x difference for light bulbs, less for tube filaments). Resistors are designed to be as constant as possible. The resistor will block the inrush current but will end up not wasting too much power once the filament gets up to temperature.
cant because if I use a different transformer then it wouldn't be original anymore and thats a big thing in vintage televisions
The filament is a 6.3V 600mA and the transformer is AC 6.3V 0.6A and I have to put something between them to ensure the filament starts to glow slowly and then lights up maybe like a capacitor that would charge when the filament would be powering up and then when its fully charged it would act as like it was a wire instead
a friend of mine has a three acre backyard and I am thinking of building a tiny home back there to live. Well, I say tiny home, but really I am just planning to build a small bedroom and use the actual house for kitchen, plumbing and electricity, which I won't have in my room/shed. I am thinking of bare minimum, like just enough space for a bed and maybe some cupboards for storage (maybe 10'X8'). I have very little experience with this kind of stuff, but one of the people who live at this house works in construction and has done projects like this before. Just... Comment too long.

>>1031935 property owner is ok with it, and i'll only be paying ~$100/month to live there. After I move out, it can be used as a normal shed or rented to someone else and I'm doing all the labor and paying for the materials. now can we focus on the building of the shed?
I just moved into a shithole apartment ran by slumlords that prob haven't worked on the building in years. I need help identifying a couple things:
1. Thick black wire, frayed at parts and cut at the end, that runs around siding and door into the wall. Found it when I moved some furniture to access the only grounded outlet (which is near the light switch)
Hey /dynosaurs/ how do I wire this up to my homemade bench top power supply? It has three wires which appears to for ground, power, and control. Also is it possible to make it spin in reverse or will that hurt the motor? Thanks.
Hi /diy/ I wanted to use this as the top of my computer desk, but I have concerns of it sagging in the center if I use just 4 legs on the corners.
What solutions are there to this? I'm thinking I could either make my own desk that looks like this, or add some sort of support going underneath it that would prevent it from sagging. Which is the best option? Would it be exceedingly difficult to make a desk that looks like this?
I've decided to make these babies for my qtπ and I need some suggestions/guidance. They're supposed to be porcelain but I don't think I can handle that, so based on nothing I decided sculpey was probably the easiest way to get something similar. My question, if anyone knows, is about what kind of surface finishes you can get? They're supposed to be ceramic, so can you seal the sculpey so it's hard and glossy? Also I'll take any sculpey advice in general
I don't know what >>1030920 is going on about. Sculpey is all about making things like figurines. The stuff you find in most stores, though, won't be super hard when cured. You probably have to order online polymer clays that cure hard. Whatever the case, you can easily apply a gloss finish to polymer clay so it at least looks the part.
Maybe the question is what kind of figurines you want to make, and the best material to use (size, shape, articulation, etc...)
I'm making a steering wheel prototype and I need advice on how I should make it. So far I have bought a steering wheel that fits the steering system of the car and I have stripped it down to bare metal.
I'm just going to 3d print and hand finish the center, the back and the buttons, thats easy. The part I don't know how to make is the outside of the wheel you hold onto.
So far my plan is to 3d print a torus the diameter of the steering wheel with a cross section that is about 7cm in diameter. I then want to make a mold around this using silicone,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1030745 I'm honestly not sure how you'd do it but it might be worth crafting some sort of jig to keep everything true. The only thing I can think of is a truncated conical hole in a block of wood, turned on a lathe.
So i got this 3hp engine from old lawn mower and would like to use it to build some kind of a vehicle. Only problem i have is that i don't have any kind of clutch on it. So any of you have simple ways to build cheap and simple clutch system? I will be mounting it onto a bicycle so smaller=better.
I got water over my power supply and thought it would be dry after a day - unfortunately it wasn't and when I plugged it in (without it being plugged into the laptop) I heard a couple of pops and sounds that shouldn't be there. I took it apart and there's no visible damage.
Is this a rather easy fix or should I just trash it? I was thinking about taking it to an electronics shop and getting it fixed there as they are rather expensive to buy new.
If all else fails, can I buy any other power supply (not necessarily for a laptop) that fits the same... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1029455 What popped was the big transformer in the middle arcing over. And these transformers are getting less and less common in place of PWM type power supplies. These have quite a bit of copper wire inside them and this is what makes them expensive. Said arching most likely overvolted that mosfet you have there and it let out the blue smoke of death.
Theoretically yout could get some copper wire and re wind your transformer and swap out the mosftet for a similar one. But this would cost a lot of money since copper... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I tried plugging it into the wall socket again (not plugged into the laptop) and the buzzing noise that I was getting from when it was plugged in is gone. Is it possible that it will work? I am afraid to plug it into my laptop to check, and my multimeter prongs are too big to fit into the jack to measure anything.
So I'm great with computers, work in IT and all that but this electrical stuff is just not making sense to me. This is why I'm not an engineer.
So I need to get about 17.4 metres (57") of led strips setup and with a wireless controller. I've found these cheap Chinese ones which look like they'll be good enough, but I don't get what kind of power I need for them.
I guess I just need to multiply the wattage by 4? That would be 240w and so I just get a 240w power supply? And what kind of wiring do I need to do to get this kind of supply... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You dont have to calculate shit. Thats an LED RGB SMD 5050 (5 meters long) and they make specific parts for those. One power adapter per 5 meter roll. Just dont get cheap and start guessing on whats parts to use. Just buy the proper parts. All over ebay. Get the seller to answer these questions.
You're good to go with that setup... If you google powering LEDs, you'll find a lot of confusing stuff, involving constant current, constant voltage, forward voltage, voltage drop, load resistors, parallel, series, ohms law, etc...
Looks as though these are 3 parallel at a time with individual resistors to match the current of each led if supplied with 12 volt... All you need to do is give it regulated 12 volt, (no wall warts) and the power supply you're looking at looks legit...
My only concern would be Daisy chaining these things together...... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
