Hey /diy/, 2 questions:

So I have a longboard (pic related) that is 9 ply, and I love this thing. Only now that I've had it for a while, I wish it was lighter. My friend has a similar one that's 7 ply, and it's much lighter.

Is it possible to sand off 2 layers without doing damage, or something weird to the board? It needs new grip tape anyway, so I'd rather sand off the top so I can keep the graphic also.

Cont.

2nd question, the nose of the board has checked it's fair share of curbs while I was still learning, and as a result a large chip formed there (pic related).

Is there a way to repair this?

Thanks in advance

Glue and clamps or cut it off

The top and bottom plys are often made of stronger, higher quality wood because those layers take more abuse in terms of loading and weather. Best to leave them in place.

Hey y'all, quick question that Google doesn't seem to solve.

My dishwasher broke so we bought a new one. We're trying to replace the old hoses with new ones but have no idea how to remove this one from the pipe. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I have no clue

But from a quick look, it looks like there is a threaded collar right there at the end of the fitting.
You would unscrew the ring using the notches on it

I dont know the proper name for it
>>
>>1028184
Also obviously you dont remove the crimped hose or the knob.
You have to do something on the fitting nearest to the wall to remove it.
>>
>>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?

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.

Maybe you should tell what's wrong with your current snips.

I cut stainless (up to 5mil) only rarely so I can't really comment about the durability of 85F. No problems with 0.5mm and thinner brass, though.

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?

If you are using LED's then you should be okay, just make sure to insulate all your connections well so there won't be any shorts that can produce sparks and you should be golden.

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?

Greetings earthlings,

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...

Why would anyone make a dildo nowadays? That market already offers any kind of genital from various creatures.

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.

Hey,
some faggot scratched my car today. I need to hide it somehow, with a sticker, paint or whatever comes up. I don't have artistic skills, so what would you suggest?

Also I don't have much money for this.

btw, I'm not sure it is international but where I live this symbol stands for pussy.

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.

My main concern is,...

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.

Try "silver soldering gunsmithing site:www.practicalmachinist.com"...

nice resource, thanks!

Get a fucking muzzle brake, you're guranteed to fuck up the barrel. You're talking about brazing, not soldering and brazing temps will soften steel and likely warp the barrel.
