What exactly are you asking? What kind of gifts you should give your friend? How the hell should we know? What does your friend like would be a good start. Do they like video games? No? Don't send them a video game. A Gail safe gift would be a blow job, send them one of those.
Sup diy. I have always wanted to be a jeweler as a hobby ever since I had a job selling jewelry 15 years ago. I am finally going to start getting my tools together and I am curious as to if anyone here knows anything about it. I really would like some ideas on where to pick up scrap jewelry I can dismantle and melt to have my own metal stock.
I bought two pairs of boots online: One is supposed to be a 9W and the other one a 10. I'm normally a 9.5, they didn't have that size in stock.
The 10 is definitely too large, I can feel my foot move around too much. The 9W fits perfectly except when I walk in it the top part/welt starts creasing and digs into the top of my foot. Its a bit annoying when it does it, I can feel it on top of my foot every time the shoe flexes.
Should I try to stretch out the 9Ws until the vamp "flexes" more or opens up? Like I said the problem is that the vamp... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello /diy/ I woke up the other day to see that 2 rows of tile on my kitchen floor have buckled and are raised up now. Two rows of 5 tiles and partial tiles against the dishwasher. Two full tiles and one partial have cracked as seen in pic related.
Is there a way I can just remove and replace the cracked ones and get the others to lay flat again? There is some shit on youtube about drilling holes in the grout and spraying some glue shit under the tiles but I don't know how I'd force them back flat on the floor again.
i am trying to identify this broken SMD Part. It was on the pcb of a fluke 87 IV i got for free because it had suffered falling damage. I already identified a broken smd resistor but i have no clue what this thing could be.
I recieved a Tokoyo Flash RPM a couple of years ago and over time it's accumulated grime underneath the glass covering. I really want to send it back to the company to get it repaired and what-not, but they won't do anything since I don't have the original order number.
Have any of you dealt with a watch like this? I'm afraid to take it apart because It's not exactly the conventional watch. I've looked online for other people taking it apart, but cant seem to find anything on the internet.
Would you guys know how... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Good evening /diy/. It's my second time i'm here. Long story short, i've become really into diy recently. Yeah, i soldiered some wires but it makes me wanna puke when i have to go get that propably older than me soldering tool coz it's broken AF. I want to buy some must have equipment (wires, gun etc.) and spend less than 40 bucks. I was thinking about aliexpress thus im a patient guy. What are your thoughts?
>>921178 Thanks for the list! I did some checking and cleaning in my garage. Could You recommend me some soldering station up to 20€ or should i save for something more expensive? If so what's the min. price? What should i look for?
Well, I went out a few hours ago and sat on a massage chair. The way the chair put pressure on my calves made me wonder if you could make artificial "muscles" which worked with air. Once I got home I googled "pneumatic muscles".
I've been reading about them a bit but I'm not an engineer, so, /diy/, tell me about em. What are they commonly used for? I also read the proper term is PAM in wikipedia, is that also used as the common name? And finally, would it be possible to make a prosthesis which felt closer to an "actual" leg with them?
If I remember correctly, those are really hard to control accurately, which is necesary for any type of artificial limb. Plus, you need a compressor to move them, making a PAM prosthetic very unwieldy.
>>921066 human muscles work in pairs, your brain has a feedback loop that controls proportionally the extension of each muscle to move and hold in the right position.
if you fill an air muscle with air it would go from one extreme to the other. you would need to control dynamically the pressure in the 'muscle' to set the position and then adjust it continuously as you change the outside loads and forces.
sup /diy/, I've been through some parents stuff and found some audio equipment I remember we had when I was a kid.
I found this soviet Vega 323 stereo turntable among other things. I'm wondering what to do with it since it doesn't work properly. Dad says it's a piece of junk anyways because it's rough to the LPs. The audio quality isn't very good either because low quality needle (although this could be replaced). But apart from top acrylic cover it's in great shape visually, nice wood and lacquer, plastics are nice and solid too. I thought I could build a home media center in there after I gut it.
It also comes with a pair of speakers which are shitty, maybe paper membranes. But same nice wood and lacquer and textile front mesh. I thought I could replace the speakers inside with something of higher quality.
As a product of era that didn't plan obsolescence, it comes with complete schematics so it could be repaired to original state... possibly even upgraded to produce higher quality output if some components are replaced but I wouldn't have use for LP player anyway.
Hi I have a cheap pair of sweatpants and the seam on one of the bottom legs is starting to go I want to know how I can keep the bottom leg stretched open while I do the sewing and I'd also like to review how to finish off the stitch since I'm not very good at that.
>>921235 >gets mad when someone asks for direction on how to DIY >on a DIY board You are right, some people are useless. >>920947 Just tie the stitch back on itself. If you fuck up, repeat until it's right.
The thing with this is that I need to keep the elastic stretched to it's maximum length while I do the sewing. Sewing is already a two-handed job, so I was wondering if anyone has tried this before.
>>921306 >Just tie the stitch back on itself. If you fuck up, repeat until it's right. That's what I've been doing when I've sewed stuff before. It sometimes comes undone, so I thought I was doing it wrong.
