Sup diy, I have a solar 2135 mig welder that belongs to my dad, he bought it new 18 years ago but it has set in storage for the last 8. I want to get it working because it will do up to 1/4 inch which is impressive for a portable welder. But I have two problems. 1) the charger was lost a few year ago when we moved (24 volt charger unknown amperage) and I have no idea what condition the battery is in. I have included a pic of the welder and I was hoping if anybody knew of a site that sells new chargers or how to make one. Pic related, the welder
any 24V SLA charger will do the job. a used e-bike/mobility cart charger for 10 bux is more than enough. cut the end off, splice on a cig plug and off you go.
it probably needs a new battery, after sitting flat for so long it'll be unrecoverable. open it and see. you'll probably find it's very simple inside, basically it's a spool gun grafted to a jump start pack.
So my "soon™" father-in-law asked me a weird question. > Can you put rock and glass wool on top of each other? > If so, which goes on top? or bottom?
Of course I can Google - and I did - but I found tutorials, comparisons and stuff like that. But the combination of two? Nope.
> inb4 why use both He said he's got some leftover and he just bought enough rock wool to cover the entire surface. I guess that would imply that the rock wool would go... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
- They kinda think that if you put enough insulation on a house, you won't have to pay for the heating. - He read an article about how heat goes away due to the cold ceiling - so he went to the second floor - which was not used, but fully built - and he destroyed all the walls there, etc. He zeroed the second floor in 2 days. - He plans to cover the floor of said second floor with the wool.
So.. enough back story. If you put these two fucks on top of each other, will that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>920852 depends what you mean by "hoverboard". if you're thinking about something on wheels, then it would be pretty easy. building something that would bend the laws of physics on the other hand would be difficult
>>920845 Seeing as you probably got something from the 70's, thats probably been rewired and fucked with by god knows how many owners, gut it and re do it.
Now, that decision depends on how complicated your system is, if its a motor or sail boat, how much you want your electrical system to do for you, what you want to use the boat for, etc.
I found wire nuts wrapped in electrical tape, no labeling whats so ever, solid strand wire, a battery bank in a location where condensation dripped onto the terminals and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How much of home electrical work do you actually need to call an electrician for?
Obviously for insurance and certification they should carry out everything except rewiring a plug, but it seems to me that things like replacing (existing) light switches and outlets (or in my case, installing a salt water chlorinator in my pool system) could be done by any moderately intelligent and pragmatic human.
Would they refuse to certify even a Grade A+ piece of work carried out by an enthusiastic home DIYer just because they missed out on the shekels? Seems like bullshit... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>920801 Don't quote me on anything, but in my locality:
1) Any work done just has to be INSPECTED and CERTIFIED by a trained electrician. You can do any and all electrical work by yourself, but you need to pay an electrician to come inspect it and sign off on it afterwards
2) >Would they refuse to certify Who is they? An electrician, no. An insurance agent or other beaurocrat? Definetly.
>>920801 here, as the homeowner, you're allowed to do anything you want downstream of the panel. however, if you are getting renovations done that you have permits for, the electrical needs to be inspected before the permit can be closed.
iv only done my own electrical. running residential circuits is dead simple if you're not retarded.
>>920801 >How much of home electrical work do you actually need to call an electrician for?
Where I live you don't need to call anyone except an inspector who looks at the meter to make sure it is installed correctly before the electric company will hook up power. But, that is just if you want a meter and buy from the local power company. Nothing inside the home needs to be inspected.
I do all my own power needs unless it involves going into the crawl space. Then I pay someone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

photorec is open-source, or 'shit' by another name, while recuva is crippled unless you get the paid version.
i'd recommend instead Active@ File Recovery Professional, or Seagate File Recovery, both found on TPB. the latter actually recovers the filenames, whereas the former renames everything into new names like Found_145404647. despite that bit of stupidity, i actually prefer it. each takes about 2 hours to scan a 60gig.
Hello. I have been trying to get a respirator. I also need a mask as I will need to protect my eyes from metal and wood shavings and stuff. So I was looking if there were masks with respirators built in but not like a full face respirator. It would also be nice if it looked cool.
Hello Guys, i've recently put my hands on an old laptop screen which LCD was broken, and used the LED backlight to make a Light Panel (my girlfriend is into drawing, i've made it so she can use it to draw using transparency....)
anyway, now i'm trying to dim it using a NE555P, but whatever i'm trying, it's not working... most of the time i'm getting an "On/Off rotary switch-like" reaction from potentiometer...
i haven't used any MOSFET since i've left the circuit board on the backlight, nor any diodes, i'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
that is not the correct way to do a PWM using a 555. if you want to use pin 5 to do PWM, then you set up up the 555 as a monostable, and feed it external pulses into pin 2 using another 555 or whatever.
if you wanna use a single 555, then you follow the standard way of doing it, using 2 diodes and a pot on pin 2. google it.
(sarcasm)I know how you guys love these kinds of threads.
But anyways my brother in law has got 9 or so large old portable oxygen concentrators from work. and i am trying desperately to think of something I can do with them or their insides instead of just scrapping them. I already made an offer on the 120mm 110v fans and cages if he does scrap them.
Please /diy/ help me think up a reason to get more neat junk besides just concentrating oxygen.
I'll fallow up with some shitty pics of the insides of one he already tore down.
I'm going to put up OSB paneling in my shop. Should I spring for R13 insulation for an extra $200-230 while I do it? Here is a heat loss graph I made. I ran a heater 30 min to get from 40 to 72 then let it run down for 40 minutes. Outside temp was 38.
Depends on you, friend. If you spend plenty of time in there and want to stay warm without the feeling that you are wasting cash, get that insulation in there. Insulation also pays off in keeping things cool so when summer comes around you might be a clever crafter and frame in a window opening to fit a window AC unit or just a vent for a standalone AC. Now you can putter around with soldering irons/saws/imprisoned girls rain or shine, summer or winter.
Absolutley, I've built a few houses with 2×6 on all exterior walls simply to stuff more insulation in them, I blew in 18" in the attic, Execpt for a glass patio door the doors were doubled at the main entrance and garage, very well insulated from the basement and the two largest windows were triple paned.
I fucking love insulation, in fact I'm insulated right now.
But really I abhor working with fiberglass and will never do it again if I can help it, it's the Devil.
As a "budget" anvil I see nothing wrong with it. Having said that, you're going to get a lot of feedback as contact is made due to the beam not being solid. For instance, when you are working your material on one side of the flange causing vibration in the web.
Yes an I Beam would be better as it is formed steel. You want the web of the material to be as thick as possible or as you can afford. The Web width would need to be small as possible. That gives you less deflection when striking.
