>>1028183 I've not seen this before but it looks like it may be similar to a 'sharkbite' type fitting. The hose is not removable so you have to remove the entire valve/hose assembly. The water supply to the line in the wall must be off before doing this.
Can't you remove the other end of the flex line and re-use this line on your new dishwasher?
What country are you in? How many stories to your house? Which floor is this on?
I was over my neighbor's and installed a new basement toilet for him today. I looked around to see if anything else needed some attention, and I noticed his furnace and hot water heater exhaust wasn't properly connected to his chimney. I think it was a 4 inch pipe mortared into the chimney, then a 4 inch wye connected to it which accepted the furnace and hot water heater. For some reason, the wye didn't fit the other pipe correctly and there is an air gap between the two at the bottom. Is there anything I could use other than mortar to quickly fix this for him?...

My fridge had some trash in the drain hole where water runs out during the defrost cycle, so it eventually collected to form a huge block of ice that never melted.
The solution was to remove the trash, obviously, but I went ahead and made it larger, which may or may not affect the operation of yours. I did this about 10 years ago and mine is still operating fine.
Hey /diy/, i opened up my receiver (kenwood krf v7010) because the display was no longer working when I finally got through to the display, I noticed pic related (burned spot). I've never seen a display like this, since it does not seem to be a regular 7-segment. can it be repaired or is it fucked ?
Not sure if this is the place to post but here goes. I get really bad hay fever, and I've tried over the counter drugs and prescription ones. Nothing seems to help much, I want to try something natural. Does anyone have any experience in making something to alleviate the symptoms or methods that help. I figured someone on here must have sorted their own in a diy way. Ironically captcha shows me flowers ffs.
OK /diy/ I'm trying to start building my own gaming computer. But everything us getting confusing. I understand GPUs and power units but the problem is that I can't decide which MOBO I need to buy. I know I want an E-ATX Mobo with an LGA 1151 but I want to make the right choice. My future setup is 1xi7-6700k 1xGTX 1080 or 980 ti 1x Thermaltake Core X9 E-ATX chassis Water cooling system
But all that's left is the mobo. Recommendations? I'd rather have advice from someone experienced then to fuck up as I try and build it
>>1024209 Don't bother doing anything in California. As far as city hall goes unless you want to wait 6 months or more and ask for variances this is one of those beg for forgiveness scenarios and not ask permission. Unless your neighbors are assholes and or you live in an hoa, just build it.
Does anyone here have any recomendations for a good pair of straight and curved Jewllers/Tin snips, I work mostly in 0.004" stainless but a good cutting range would be way better. I'm based in UK, which may limit options.
So I'm going to make one of these, its basically just a log hollowed out and cut into slices with an led light in the middle. How do I make this so its not going to catch on fire when used? What sort of wood and led should I use to ensure its safe?
>>1029746 use a bulb that doesn't get super hot? if you can put your hand on the bulb without burning yourself, you shouldn't have to do anything with the wood. just make sure you don't have bare wires hanging out and you are fine.
I'm in the planning stages of building some shelving. Are there any good joints I can cut into pieces of wood to stick them together or should I just get some metal parts to stick on the inside and try to reinforce it. I want it to be hidden from the outside but I'd like to make it sturdy. I'm mostly just using a circular saw and the blades way to big for something detailed but I got some free time would butterfly joints weaken it? The shelf is going to be angled to cover the floor at a 90 degree angle sort of like L shaped to fit a corner so it'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1029497 Well the ceiling was the deciding factor, there is other shelving and drawers in there too that take up a lot of the floor space. I don't really live there all the time I have to leave for months at a time. But like in terms of how much space it takes up I'm pretty set on this.
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but /o/ didn't seem very diy oriented.
I had to change some valve shims on my bike, so far so good. Went to put it all back together and i can't get the camshafts timed properly. I align all the paint marks on the flywheel and camshaft sprockets, but when i go to tighten it up the flywheel mark slowly moves out of alignment.
>>1029451 Instead of "bike" which means nothing, learn to post MAKE, MODEL and YEAR every first post when looking for motorcycle advice. None of the teencunt customs on 4chan mean shit to real mechanics. I never post motorcycle questions on 4chan but I'm a mechanic so I answer some.
4chan is not a motorcycle forum. I'm not being a dick pointing that out but if you are going to wrench, go to BRAND SPECIFIC motorcycle forums and where available, model specific forums.

>>1029451 Tighten down the camshaft boots all evenly and slowly. Make sure the cam chain tensioner isn't in place until you're all done too. Also sometimes most of the time. A single link or two forward or back. Isn't gonna fuck anything up. Not saying you should leave it. But it really won't advance or retard the timing by anything...
Stop, its not practical in the least bit You just have to deal with the whole technology world shitting on you, with their non free, closed source consumer laptops with locked down bios and CPUS with backdoors in them.
Buy as many T400s you can, install libreboot and Trisquel to free yourself.
>>1028916 >Any advice on that front /diy/? If you're cool with the machine being thicker than a girly lap top, then I'd suppose the build would be quite easy.
If I was going to do it; I'd select a low power Mu-ATX board as the basis-- as who wants to haul around an 80 kg back pack of lead acid batteries + a 2 KW inverter? fug, your 'lap top' at this point would be a component of a mobility scooter armed with solar panels and shit.

Could you post any images of areas of your house where you think this may be supported? I'll see if I can put in some insight. Another thing I could suggest is if you got a ladder and then laid some sandbags on the bottom. That's probably the cheapest and shittiest way to do it. Unless you have some heavy timber or logs lying around that you could possible build a stand out of.
Hey guys, I'm struggling to find information on how to create a shape like this.
I'm an apprentice sheetmetal worker and I'm currently trying to make a smoke extractor for my forge. I've asked my tafe lecturers and the other guys at my work but they either don't know or don't care so I'm asking here.
I want to basically make a 45 degree angle range hood that looks roughly like the picture. It would consist of 4 sides and a top with no bottom to create a range hood style thing that I can attach onto my bastardised fume extractor... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Sorry.. I completely missed out the specific question. I have tried this before just cutting at 45 but it didn't fit up (obviously). I'm looking for a way to calculate the specific angle needed to have the sides join up if say I know I want the perimeter of the bottom to be 600mm x 800mm.
I want to make the sides 45 degrees so I would just

Hey /diy/, I dun goofed and I need to recommendations on how to go about fixing this circuit board. It's part of a small keyboard I play. I accidentally plugged in a power adapter for 18v, where the keyboard can only handle 12v. It burned out this little fuse here, and customer support (which is overseas) tells me I have to buy a whole new board from them. In earlier models of this keyboard, it used to utilize glass tube fuses, and my board appears to have soldering points so I could just add a glass fuse housing. Should I DIY it, or just buy? the board to be safe?
i use it mainly to goof around and to play every once in a while, nothing too profesional, the problem is, it doesnt has an audio output and i would really like to connect it to bigger speakers or to headphones.
>tl;dr I have this keyboard, which doesnt have a sound output, any idea on how to install one on my own?
I was thinking about asking /biz/ about this but /diy/ is where my heart is at.
I am currently looking for a company that can produce a prototype of a plastic part i designed. I dont fully understand how they calculate their prices and how much of a hassle it is to produce the moulds and setup the machine to produce a specific object.
My prototype being a tube like object and bigger than 30cm ( its like 40x40x40 ) already excludes a lot of companies. Also the chinese companies i talked with say they keep owning the mould which... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1028569 Does it need to be one piece? You can't really just go out to a manufacturer asking for a single item. If it isn't too detailed or strong, you could vacuform it. Other than that, the only thing that comes to mind is lost wax/PLA casting. Or, if you have the plans you could ask for the cost of having it milled in some cheap aluminum, machineable plycarbonate, or acetal.
I am looking for drawings of outdoor speaker systems of rather bigger size (2xspeakers, 1xsub with ~1kW power in total), but all I've found are living room style casings. Does anyone have a website in mind?
Any of you ever silver solder parts to your rifle barrel?
i removed the 3 blade sight from my Ruger Mini 14 (new heavy barrel design), and i want to fill the ugly roll pin channel left in the barrel. I picked up a 1/8" dia. hardened steel rod to fill it, propane torch and a roll of silver bearing acid core solder.
im no expert at this sort of thing by any stretch of the imagination, but Larry Potterfield makes it seem pretty easy. ill do a test first of course, probably solder a couple old wrenches together or something like that.

I suggest you visit real gun forums, not /k/ which isn't anything at all. 4chan forums are just ways to find real resources and should NEVER be a first resort. They are only a substitute for Google.
Practical Machinist is an outstanding website. Gunsmithing is nothing more than specialty machining and fabrication, so many machinists work on firearms. Naturally a machinist does far more machining than a gunsmith, and brazing and soldering and welding are skills nearly all machinists possess because we need them.
