Can you help me, /diy/? I want to make a cool t-shirt or hat for one of the Pokémon Go teams for a convention in a few weeks but I don't know how to get the logo onto clothing without it looking like shit.
My apologies if this should have been asked in /cgl/...
I want to repair a rotation evaporator glastube. The nut where you can attach a tube is broken. It is made of boro 3.3 glas. Anyone can tell me how I have to proceed without destroying ist? These are pretty expensive. Wenn fooling around with other glas parts they broke upon heating them
>>1027930 While waiting actual glassblowers... 1. Posting a pic of the actual broken part would serve you better than some random pic. 2. You could list your tools, since it's pretty likely that you are lacking something important (and expensive). 3. In addition to trying to fix it by yourself and buying a new thing, there's the option of paying a professional to fix it.
I'm looking for some open-source or free electronic/electrical simulation and design software, but one that is more geared towards larger stuff, like an electrical circuit for an automobile, rather than PCB and IC design, which is what a lot of them seem to be geared towards. Any Suggestions?
I've always wanted to build a model city or town, but have never gotten around to it. I don't want kits, I want to do it completely myself, building a small town. Right now, I have a garage to make one in and a big table, but no tools or supplies. What do I need to purchase for this, how much will it cost, and where can I find out how to put it together? I'm surprised this type of thing doesn't have a general here or on /toy/. Thank you very much, /diy/.
I have dogs (long and short haired), they shed hair everywhere. My current vacuum costs me $30 a year in bags and thats with me reusing the bags at least 3 times each. I'm tired of bags. I tried a Shark Navigator but the canister was so small I was constantly emptying it. It also took a long time to clean the house because it is so small. I don't care that about filtration, just dog hair.
Does anything know of a bagless vacuum that can handle pet hair and it is not made for apartment dwellers with only 25 square feet of floor?
What about shop vacs? Anyone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>$30 a year >$2.50 a month >literally cheaper than feeding a starving African child for just .50c a day Get an undercoat brush and brush then regularly. Or get them groomed regularly. Or just pay the 30 fucking dollars a year. >Shopvac won't work because it doesn't have bristles to pick up the hair out of the carpet
>>1027567 I recycle the bags. If I didn't reuse them the cost would be closer to $90 a year. The first few years I had it thats what I did but I did the math on it and it was stupid. So, all in all, the vacuum has cost me close to $400 in bags over its life. Its an $80 vacuum. If I had spent $300 on decent bagless I would be ahead by now and wouldn't have to go through the hassle of tearing open full vacuum bags to empty and reuse them.
>>1027581 Bosses cleanview 1331? I think. Best vacuum I've ever owned. Cleans our carpets so well, the first time we used it the canister was completely full on one bedroom alone because our old vacuum sucked (lol). All of the hair was gone. Pic related
I want to build a mini portable PC using a raspberry pi as its core. Ah, ive also never done something like this though... I have a soldering kit and a lot of tools but i havent yet decided on what to buy as parts for it.
I know i could get like, a notebook or soemething but i wanna build something, have something to spend my time on this summer and also, i dont have the money to get a notebook.
Any advice?What do u think? is it lame or somehting? lemme know
I ride a motorcycle but I cannot go full space-elf motorcycle adventure $700 pants.
Occured to me the local thrift stores are induated with old acu army pants. They have a very abrasion resistant 50/50 nylon cotton ripstop and pockets in the knees that fit knee pads. That pattern is distinct and ugly. How can I dye these to make them less school-shootery?
Should I soak them in bleach to lighten the pattern?

I've googled batteries again and again but can't find a clear cut answer that's less than 50 paragraphs without quoting the entire book of thermodynamics.
Can someone please explain to me, like I'm five years old, how to realistically make batteries work without advanced knowledge of circuitry and without using the phrase "it depends"? The most simple calculations that will get it working, not working with utmost efficiency, just..working.
Here are some extreme examples:

>>1026991 "it depends" is literally the answer, every scenario you described is completely different. However, you don't need to understand a whole lot to be able to figure out what happens when. But since you don't want to put in even that much effort, >12V motor with 1.2V battery The motor will start spinning at around 3V, so if you connect 2 batteries in series, it will start spinning. For full speed, you need 10 batteries in series, or a step-up converter, you can buy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1026991 It would help if you could link to specific examples of something you want to do. In particular, try to find examples of things you want to run, that list their voltage and current requirements.
>... How can I make the LED light up? The simplified explanation: To run one off of a wall outlet: you'd (me, at least) want to use a transformer to drop the AC volts down to ~6 volts, and then four diodes (1N4007) to make a full-wave rectifier.

>>1026991 >I have a 10MW nuclear reactor and a single 3v LED. How can I make the LED light up? What are the most simple basic ways that I can spend some time/money to make this happen? What are the side effects?
nuclear power is not analogous to a battery. nuclear power, or wind/coal/solar/hydro all create AC power. that's a larger subject than I feel like explaining, but in short, not the same as a battery.
an led has a forward voltage because it is a light emitting DIODE. This... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

My badge in the picture has become too worn on the pointy end for the clip to grip. It comes off with a bit of light jiggling. Is there any way I can fix/rescue this badge? It has a great deal of sentimental value to me.
Rough the pin up a bit and then add a coating of something to it. Even paint could work for a while... but would recommend an epoxy, superglue, or some sort of jb weld type of adhesive that sets up. Just a light coat. It will increase the diameter of the pin and make it have more texture so the clasp can grip the back again. (alternatively, just try a new clasp? old one may have lost some of its grip strength over time)
They always seem flimsy and narrow and I always imagine falling off them.

I have an awful lot of disks but I don't know what do with them. I searched a little if I can do something useful but everything I see is some art attack kind autistic shit. Idon't want to make trash. any ideas please? otherwise I'll dump them.
Above a billiard table, I'm looking to craft and mount something similar to x2 of pic related.
With two bendable laser diodes each projecting a line, I'd be using this setup for instructional purposes to train and teach reflection/strike angles and other billiard drills.
I have seen pre-made laser diodes packaged with "360°" mounting kits (most of them are just 2-axis, which won't work**). I figure I'll need a bendable, pose-able method for manipulating the lasers to line up shots and demonstrate angles.
A couple questions:
What is the technical term for the corrugated bendy tube in pic related?
How would YOU implement this solution, knowing over-head power is no obstacle, and to do so in the cleanest fashion?
- prob rebuild something like link related, these are used for rack/PA sound mixer/etc. lighting, has electrical coonections through the shaft, and build quality should be good enough for your uses - usually known as 'gooseneck' or 'flexshaft' - maybe more 'technical' term, but, cannot think of at present.
How you planning on mounting this, side attached? Shouldnt you just be using one, and a mirror - bit confused, why... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Any boatfags no what the hole on the left is in this pic? I'm replacing the transom on this bass boat I just bought and have no clue what this is. Middle hole is obviously the bilge drain and the right hole is a hole for the aerator pump for the livewell. The tube is steel and is capped on both sides.
I recently got my new debit card but i didnt choose the design (which is a lion) i was wondering if i could customize it my self im only doing the front I plan on plasti dip the front of the card (while protecting the chip, bank logo and the viza logo which is going to be a chore) then i plan on using a gold sharpie and passing it over the numbers what do guys think
Hey guys. Last week I made a very shitty table. Tonight I'm making a new chicken coop. I've 11 chickens and they're getting too big for their coop. So far I have the bottom frame done and some perches. The drill keeps dying so I have to go little by little.
Up next is getting the rest of the vertical frame screwed in, then the top horizontal part.
This is coming along much better than the table. I will be surrounding it with corrugated metal on the outside and chicken wire on part of the front, as well as a roof.
Never built a structure like this before, this is of my own design as well.
Or alternatively i'd recommend building a video binoculars. Get two camera modules (Just get a sharp or sony HAD so that the image is not noisy), s-mount (M12) lenses and two LCD modules. Add wiring, power and viewing lenses.
From here you're just a few steps away from stereoscopic night vision and various other fun DIY things.
install an older version then upgrade. even if you just pirate 7 or 8 they'll let you upgrade. win 10 is packed full of spyware and other shit tho so only a fucking moron would actually let it anywhere near their hardrive
