>>1026123 Yeah ... my house is from 1984 but the HVAC is from 2009 I bought the house last year but the previous owner died and his estate lawyer sold the house This means I have no information about past problems (which should have had enough time to be seen) I'll have to check the outside unit and compare to the size of the house and see if that's the case. Then I'll probably have to get a more powerful fan (if possible). I like cold and getting a SMALLER system is the last thing I'll do
I accidentally spiller some oil based paint down my kitchen sink, the amount that went down probably was no more than 250ml, and I immediately ran the hot water tap for a few minutes.
I noticed the water was slightly slower to go down, and use of a plunger helped that, but now I'm worried about it it potentially making the drain easier to clog in the future, and haven't got a clue how I would remove residual paint from the pipes.
You know what should be a bigger Instructables meme? Wire hangars.

>>1025793 Died how? Clicking of death? Its worth its weight in aluminum then. Otherwise try popping it in the freezer. That might get you a few minutes of use out of it to get some files off. If its just bad sectors use a recovery tool.
>>1025797 No idea. I restarted my computer, then suddenly it wouldn't boot past the UEFI startup screen. I loaded an alternate hard drive fine, so it isn't my UEFI or motherboard. I swapped the cables, so it isn't the cables. I dusted it, so it isn't the connections either.
Hey fellas. I posted the other day asking if anyone had experience with PEX. Well after trying to get under the house I've run into a bit of a problem. There's standing water under there that's not draining anywhere. I found pic related that looks pretty much what under my house looks like, except there's a lot more than the little seen here.
The reason I need to get under there is our washing machine isn't draining to the septic due to a break in the line halfway there (which happens to be in the middle of underneath the house). The drain links... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
drag a garden hose under there put end of hose in lowest part place brick on hose to hold in place place other end of hose outside at a lower level than water use wet/dry shop vac to start siphon wait for water to drain
use heavy cardboard or light plywood or similar material to make a work path for crawling on get under there and get it fixed
>>1025728 yeah... I'm guessing the tricky bit here is finding one. >place other end of hose outside at a lower level than water
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaho7JSVS1I putting together one of these should be less than $20, just add a hose to intake water, and a hose on the other end to get it far away from house. or buy one for $30. also, if you HAVE a shop vac, just use that.
If you can figure out where the water is coming from, stop it, and the water should drain... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1025596 >charlieplexing 7seg displays have common anode or common cathode so charlieplexing doesn't work. Control multiple 7-segments like an LED matrix. 7 outputs from your MCU or a shift register to all separate inputs. Turn one on at a time very fast so it looks like a solid light.
Heya diy. My roommate just moved out and I'm moving everything around. I now have freedom with two bedrooms, a kitchen, and living room. Any deep cleaning tips? I spent an hour last night cleaning bath tubs. I'll be running to the store later for any needed cleaning supplies.
OP has a very good observation, GPS won't work if the signal is blocked by concrete, even with a good GPS receiver it'll need to be a few meters from a window depending on the height of surrounding buildings But if I was running the project I'd over come this at the software level with pokemon appearing based on free WiFi unique to McDonald's premises Interested in seeing some sauce on this
You phone doesn't only use satellites for determining your position. It also uses cell towers. This is why you don't lose location service under a dense canopy of trees as you would with a standalone GPS receiver.
The dishwasher is busted. The other day it wouldn't start a cycle. I opened the door and closed again, and then it would start. That happened a couple times. This morning I couldn't get it to light up or do anything.
Breaker/fuse is fine. Outlet has power.
I took off the control panel, and I'm able to complete a circuit (or something like that) by pretending to latch the door. It will then perform a drain cycle, but no lights come on. The only thing it will do, when I push the latch down, as if I'm closing the door, is drain.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What's with all the breaking dishwashers? Mine's busted too, seems it doesn't get water delivered through the hose. Which is weird since the faucet certainly is open. Still runs fine tough by using a water bucket.
I have pic related inverter mig/arc welder. It said on the website it can tig, but i'm having trouble finding a torch with what looks like the right connection. Anyone know any more about welding gun/torch standards?
>>1024988 Looks like the sockets are covered up in this picture so I can't really tell but I case you don't know, for using TIG/stick the torch and ground leads generally plug into the + and - sockets at the bottom (torch to - ground to + for TIG and polarity varies depending on electrode for stick). The socket at the top is a MIG gun socket so I don't think you'll find any TIG tirches for that ahaha. Also looks like it doesn't have a proper setting for "lift arc TIG" so you'll be doing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1025038 Yep that'll work. You might also be able to get a torch that just directly plugs into your machine with a gas hose that comes off separately which could be more convenient and cheaper. Those lugs are best if you have a machine with permanently wired in electrode holder (stinger) or you have the stinger that came with it and you can't find a torch with a connector that fits. Chucke also did some more videos on scratch start very recently too that might not show up on searches just yet if you wanna check them... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My new job is testing LED lights for a company and I need to get some equipment to run a proper lab. The current power measuring equipment I have is two multi meters, one is a nice amprobe unit and the other is some no name junk. To meet the IES test standards I need units capable of measuring DC V and DC A with 0.1% accuracy with a 95% confidence interval.
So far nothing I've seen is able to meet this level of accuracy, I'm not really an expert in the world of high end test equipment. What do?
hey /diy/! do you guys have any home made instruments? if so, what are they and how did you make them. i'll start. i made this drum kit with a suitcase, a tin, a sock, and a homemade bass pedal (will provide crude schematic if asked.)
>>1023798 I made a banjo for a physics project. Used a cake pan hot glued upside down to a wok to create the resonating chamber. Created the neck with a metal bar from ikea furniture that slotted in nicely. The strings were made with dental floss (round) which I wound together using an impact driver.
What sites does /diy/ defer to when theyre tired of "if i bought a container ship how long could i live on it" , "what cordless drill should i buy" or "how can i make all these old calculators into a faggot detector" threads?
so basically i want to turn these seat that i got from a renault megane gt line into use inside the house the driver seat is gona be my desk chair and gona use a clio 3 rs ( clio 192) as a base for it and the others i have no idea how im gona make a badse for them _______________________ basically what im asking here is some help with the bases for the rest of the megane salon from people who have knowledge or have an idea for it
Norway's prison is literally a basement dweller heaven if it wasn't for one big problem: No internet. Let's play a game, can come up with any DIY tricks to solve this problem? How would you smuggle internet inside a prison cell? I know that a Norway prisoner once managed to hack their TV to get internet access in jail before he got busted, so there's definitely some tricks.
what you need is a small portable communications device, maybe around hand-size, with a built-in screen few inches wide and the ability to send and transmit data via remote tower, or access point. Sound, video and the ability to play Pokemon GO all a bonus.
your question (should) be more, how to best to hide it - smuggling cant be much more difficult, when not easier, in Norway. Surprised none of your more famous prisoners haven't forced the court of Human Rights into installing Unlimited Innanet Access in their Playstation and Romperroom cell.
Hey /diy/. I want to lead a full on diy life. I want to make a living off my music, games, and art, and eventually buy some land in the middle of nowhere and build my own house. I need my stuff to be more financially successful so I was wondering if anyone had some diy promotion, business, and advertising help, as well as diy business advice. Any useful resources and suggestions very much appreciated, thanks!
I have a spare length of box section and I am making a barbell stand like pic related. The stuff I have is 40x40x3mm and I'm wondering if anyone has a rough idea of the max weight it will be able to hold. Pic related is 50x50mm and states it will hold 136kg/300lb if that helps.
Depends. Do you plan to weld it together, glue it together, tape it together or string it together with bailing wire? Do you have competency in any of the above? Geez, can you read the sticky you dummy.
Hey /diy/,who all has injured themselves on projects recently?
I was drilling some holes for rebar for my house today and set my drill down. I turned and out of the corner of my eye I saw it tipping and reached out for it, only to end up grabbing the bit like 15 seconds after I finished drilling.
>>1016231 Soap and water and a brush. Unless you are using ph13 strong acid nothing too exciting is going to happen,you.might not even notice it doing anything to the battery gunk. Use a brass of plastic brush on the battery contacts if they ate damaged. The plating might be screwed already though. Bad plating will oxidize and present that as high resistance and make your flashlight dim.
I wanted make my own set of window switches for my Miata. The stock ones are prone to corrosion, and can't pass much current. I want to replace the switches with some that are sealed, and run them to some relays which can push out more current, giving me faster windows. Most people have done this with toggle switches, which is easy enough, but I want to use something similar to pic related.
However I wouldn't want the ring to illuminate until I flick on my parking/head lights. I can't tell what this rice nigger is telling me in the listing, but I want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
