How do I make a simple as fuck website? I know nearly nothing about CSS/HTML, should I just use one of these services like weebly, or is there a decent tutorial somewhere about website building that I can't seem to find?
>>1020967 CSS/HTML are scripting languages. You either learn them or you don't use them. You can't pop in, learn three lines, and the call it good. You have to actually know what you are doing for something to look decent. If WYSIWYG is what you want, use that.
>>1020961 >i'm too lazy to buy a transformer. A transformer has nothing to do with this.
Connect the tip of the 1/4 to the tip and the ring of the 3.5mm. Tip is left speaker, ring is right speaker. Your guitar amp is mono, if you only connect one only one side of your headphones will work.
Then connect the sleeves of both together, which is just ground.
Do note that if you are trying to use a Line Out plug, you wont get much volume out of it.
>>1020913 No, i knly do plumbing repairs eveey so often for friends and family, and i havent cone across pex yet, usually pvc or copper. but it seems solid and a little easier than pvc. I think you have to buy a tool for the crimps(I don't imagine a basic one being more than $20), but you'll probably make your money back compared to the solvent and primer you'd have to buy and the fittings you'd need every 10 ft with pvc.
Hello /diy/ I have a throttle body that I want to disassembly because of reasons. Of course I want as less damage as possible. Unfortunately all the levers seem to be brazed or welded to the both shafts. Has anybody an idea how I can get the levers of the shafts without totally destroying the parts? Is there a good way to test if the parts are welded or brazed?
Hey /diy/ first-time poster here. I've been looking at some of the stuff you guys tend to do and it looks this board really knows their shit. I've recently purchased an airgun target box and want to be able to practice indoors because the laws are retarded. However I'd like something I can move and that doesn't cost too much. I have two left hands but want to try to make something anyway. I'm not yet at the point where I'm certain I'm not gonna shoot outside the box. Any ideas for something that could be made/converted into... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi, gun enthusiast here. I have a few traps I made for my kids.
Just so it's perfectly clear, are you going to be shooting a pellet rifle or BB gun?
Also, why does the target/trap need to be moved with such a heavy frame? All the ones I have are exceptionally light, and a commercial BB trap I have is literally a foam block with plastic wrap on the outside, with a handle on top. It weighs ounces, not pounds.
What kind of pellet are we talking about here? An Airforce Condor is gonna require something different than a little co2 pistol will. A better description of your target box would help too. And are you wanting a pellet trap or just a backstop to take care of the fliers?
It really doesn't take much to stop pellets, and there's loads of designs for pellet stopping contraptions. Something like the rack in your pic with a few layers of carpet hanging off it will stop them surprisingly well. But it would really help to know what exactly you're looking to build...

>>1020520 They are crap. Our machine shop bought one and it took the greasy rags in the shop weeks to get it dialed in. They had to make some of their own parts on the old lathe to replace the crap it was made out of. They are sloppy and inaccurate. Lots of aluminum in them. It flexes. And none of the indicators on it were accurate even after being set. They do work and for the price they can't be beat but you get what you pay for.
>>1019699 True but I'm not sure how much they can handle and how they handle long term. Had a thread recently, most people there said one should only solder or cold solder or else oxidation and heat will build up and create a fire.
hi /diy/, i get an old handheld blowtorch used for brazin a/c pipes, but is quite old and dysfunctional. principally cos the gas mixer was too oxidized etc... the thing is, im planning to make a new mixer with a piece of cupronickel. but there are several of differents flameshapes i guess for difents uses like cooking, brazing, or just heating. and i dont know whats the best for melting things a large one or someone like the pic. anyway why no blowtorch tread?
I want to say "you are in so far over your head that you don't even know enough to know how far in over your head you are". But this isn't necessarily an entirely unrealistic project.
The most glaring issue is the odds that you don't actually have a place to put this. Throwing a car around takes a LOT of force, even if you strip it down to the body, frame, and interior. You can't just bolt this thing to some shitty 6" slab of concrete and expect it to hold up. If you DO have a solid foundation to stick this to, it's not a concern, but if you don't, you're either going to be shelling out to have one poured, or busting your ass for god knows how long doing the bulk of the work yourself.
You're also going to need the help of someone with machine and metal fabrication tools, as it's unlikely you're going to find off-the-shelf parts to make all of this work.
And, of course, there's the problem of actually interfacing the mechanics to the electronics. Even if you're able to find something ready-made that can pull useful physics data out of the game engine(s) you're wanting to play in, you're still going to need some way of converting that data into signals for the hydraulic controls to use. With as many variables involved as there are, I'd be willing to bet there's no way you're going to find suitable hardware to do that. At bare minimum, you're going to need to enlist the help of an electronics guy, if not outright learn how make what you need yourself.
You're looking at a long, difficult, expensive project no matter what. $5 says you never finish it, if you even get started.
I recently purchase an older work boat and I have plans of re-purposing her has a weekend warrior fish killer.
This is going to involve a moderate amount of welding though, and I've spent no time on aluminum. Although not a welder by trade, I've spent years sticking, wire feeding, and brazing on steel and ss. I know aluminum is a different monster, but I don't feel like it's out of the realm of reality for me to learn on my own.
I'm comfortable with weld prep. My biggest questions are what kind of output voltage should I be running to get good penetration on 1/4" and 3/16" material? What size wire should I be running? I was looking at .030" 4043. Does my gas choice differ between when I'm running the spool gun vs tig? I was planning on running pure argon, but could I use C25 while on the spool gun?
I'm setup with an xmt350 and spoolmatic 30A, although since the boat doesn't fit inside my small garage shop most of the time the 30A will be hooked up to my trailblazer 325.
Any help is appreciated, along with general aluminum discussion.
>>1018429 I'm rebuilding one of the jet pumps because the old housing has a crack in it but the newer housings have a different mounting pattern and different OD. So I'm going to cut out a 2'x2' piece of the transom, patch it, and then cut out the proper mounting pattern. I'm also going to run hull stiffeners along the sidewall mostly for aesthetics, but to give a little rub protection to against trees and stuff when I'm moored up in a river. Plus there are a handful of small drill holes to fill.
Alright so a guy is selling this 16,5 ft aluminum hull for like 300 USD, it was for a project he never got around to. I'm visiting tomorrow to check it out. What do I look out for? It's home welded but he claims its very well done, so let's assume that it is. I already know there are "pinhole" corrosion in the hull. Only two pictures, sorry.
unlike what another poster said you can seal up your house but it takes a lot of work. You should start by pulling the washer out of its home and uncovering what is really back there. Newer houses are better sealed houses, if it is an old house you probably have a lot of work ahead of you
You are on a stranded island with a plane that crashed on the beach. There are about 20 other surviving passengers.
You are not allowed to look at any pictures of a plane, boat, or tools to referance how to build craft to escape. Only your memory.(That means no Googleing) But you have to survive and build a craft to escape the island.
Explain how you would Do It Yourself.
>I would try to find a map in the Pilots to have an Idea where the hell my island is.
>>1015526 I would probably be able to build a plane out of the scrap metal of the crash, considering I have a perfect memory. 1. A roter in the back 2. Horizontal wing flaps on both wings to control up and down. 3. Vertical wing flap in the back to steet left and right. 4. Strings to pull on and steer it 5. To get some speed for takeoff I could imagine making a pettaling station for 2 other men on the plane moving the wheels if I could find some gears and an chain (I guess I could make thoes out of wood with my...

Maybe make some fires to become more visible.

First I look through the luggage and cargo area to see if some guy had a satellite phone If there is no phone I try to find radio equipment or try to salvage it somehow (I will figure it out as I go along)
Hey, kinda new to 4chan so don't know if /diy/ is the right place for this.
Just finished high-school, planning on following medical career (6 years college in my country). A guy online talked to me about forex trading and that it could be profitable. Worth the time spent on learning it? I could use some extra money. Thnx in advance
Also asked on /k/ >OP is a reenactorfag who wants to make himself a fustibalus aka a staff sling Does /diy/ have any experience with that? How tos, materials, measurements? Also need as many historical sauces as possible, especially for 13th century
>>1021517 You're not serious, right? The sling is one of the simplest weapons mankind ever crafted, and this is just a sling on a stick. Wood and leather haven't changed since it's heyday, the single thing you should have to spend more than ten seconds thinking about if you're a reenactor is what kind of cord they'd have access to.
>>1021517 Throw spears at niggas, works much better and easier
In terms of the staff-sling, looking at about broomstick length or around 2m of fairly tough, flexible timber (oak, yew, hickory or spotted gum) and 60-100cm of the sling component with a pouch (hemp rope and leather) which is just attached via a hole in the stick
Does anyone have experience working with carbon fiber?
I had an idea to make a carbon fiber link bracelet but I have no idea if this is feasible. Think like a stainless steel watch band, only of carbon fiber. There would be lots of little links and pins, possibly all made of carbon fiber. I undoubtedly think will mean it is expensive. But can carbon fiber take something like a small hole and a pin driven through it to attach to other links? Conversely, are there any chain or interlocking link styles that don't require a pin to secure like in a watch band?

Hey there /diy/nosaurs. I have an old skateboard that i want to convert into a cruiser. I looked into a lot of the specifics and based personal preferences i have created a shopping list of items that would be good to buy. Problem is that i have such little expereince with boards that i really don't know if i'm throwing away all my money here. My point in posting this is to get some tips and help making my shopping list cheaper and to assure whether or not this is a smart project. All help is appreciated! (Attached pic is of the board and "shopping list soon to follow")
The strips are probably individually addressable LEDs. That being the case depending upon the controler (microcontroller) you can make an infinite number of patterns. I really doubt your remotes are going to be compatible. You could always do it yourself like I did.
>>1021367 To clarify, when I say no animations, what I mean is nothing like "chase" or "rainbow" or any of the other hallmark built-in animations of an individually addressable system. The remote shown only has animations that affect the entire strip.
Any of you fine gents ever install a gas fireplace? I moved into a new place with one installed but I'll be damned if I can find the spot where you put the key to turn it on. I thought some previous owner may have just covered it up so I ripped the old tiles off but there is no valve. It wouldnt be inside the box or something silly like that would it? That switch on the left starts a little fan inside, presumably for windy nights with possible backdraft.
So as you see the green part got destroyed time by time. and after my laptop fell hard the corner (red part) brake from the main structure and is one with thes screen frame.its hard to lose and open the laptop and i fear the time that the screen cables get damaged bcause thier showing.and oneday i gave it to a workshop to fix the screen(another common story) and he gleued the part with silicon -_- that brake off and still stuck in the part. i came to ask what glue or anything to fix this part by myself.
So, I just moved in to a new apartment, and I seem to have made a mistake by setting up my bed with the head right underneath a window. There's no good way to rearrange the room at this point, but if I have to to improve my sleep I'll consider it.
I want to do something to block out light and sound from coming through the bottom half of the window. I'm hoping this will make the bed area feel more secure and peaceful.
The best idea I've come up with is to cut a piece of wood (32.75''x32.75''x1.5-2'' [this leaves... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1021088 >block out light Curtains/shutters/blinds/etc. Take your pick >block out sound Earplugs. Literally every other solution is either absolutely retarded, impractical, impossible to do without skills and tools, ridiculously expensive, doesn't work, or all of the above.
Moreover, you'll get used to light and sound anyway.
evening /DIY/ers, I'm looking for a specific soap mold. Pic Related. I've tried my googlefu for the last hour and all I've found is various etsy pages of the actual soap but not the molds. any help? I tried /wsr/ and they've failed me.
what are some fun diy things to make, Im really bored and I wanna make something. nothing that will cost a lot of money tho, and nothing that requires me to go to some specific store out of the way, to get.
Hey diy Last.night i discovered that a few youngsters were breaking in my boat. The boat is in poor condition but i want to change that starting with a new lock or maybe even a new door to stop people from stealing my shit. The door is one of those 2 halves doors where you havevto take the top out first if you want to get the bottom part out too. Will post pic of it. The old lock is completely gone and i still have that hole left in the door. I dont want to put the same lock in because i dont think tjis door design is any good at all... anybody got a good idea for this type of door?
