People are stupid and afraid magnets with technology.
You are right, there is some concern for your speaker and compass. your phone will use your compass as part of an inertial navigation system while using the gps, so test to see if that still acceptably and that you can use the mic, speakerphone, and speaker acceptably.
>>917163 When the phone moves into and out of the magnetic field it can produce voltage spikes in the electronics. There are many factors involved. It really depends on the penetration of the magnetic field into your phone's electronics.
If the magnet is mounted on the car and the battery of the phone is right over the magnet when you take it on and off, there shouldn't be a problem. The battery pack inside the phone should protect the rest of the electronics from the magnetic field.

My friend lives next street and we were wondering if it is possible to have a wireless network set up between our houses. I measured the distance, and it is roughly 195 meters (640 ft.). We thought maybe we could use 2 parabolic antennas and wi-fi, but I have no idea if it is even remotely possible. Could it work? Pic related
>>917141 Yes, it is very easy to do. Just get 2 USB wifi devices, two 10 feet long USB extension cords, and 2 parabolic dishes (google "wokfi"). I use metal lamp shades like those used for heating lamps but you can something cheaper. Pic related. I don't have mine outside, they just aim at each other through several walls and it does the trick. For block walls you'll need to bounce it around them using some flat surface the signal can bounce off of. I had to do that for someone's wireless security cameras.

I've been doing all my projects involving an FPGAs with Verilog, since thats the HDL I was taught in school but the thing is I've noticed virtually every project I see online is written in VHDL, for anyone who's had experience with both is it just a better language for DIY projects? would it be worth my time to learn VHDL and use that instead?
>>917139 Its pretty much the same thing. CompEng here, I was taught VHDL in a Digital Systems class that was messing around with FPGAs but in another class we used verilog for something and I remember its pretty much the same, don't worry about that. Use whatever.
From my understanding Verilog is more popular in the US and VHDL is more popular everywhere else. I think VHDL is also more appropriate for scaling when producing ASIC, but I'm definitely no expert. The thing I hate about VHDL is that you have to change everything in about 3 or more places everytime you change something.
putting together a new computer..first time.. everything i need is inside of it...and it boots up and restarts constantly...only staying on for a second or two...if i unplug the cpu power supply (the 12v plug in)..then everything seems to run ok..and it does the samething even with the cpu out and the 12v plugged in. any ideas?
>>917138 Did you consult the instruction manuals during assembly? Did you install the little speaker on the motherboard? Does it signal anything? If so, did you check what the signal means in the manual of your motherboard?
Possible bad CPU, or your CPU is incompatible with your board. Check the list of approved hardware for your motherboard (should be able to find it on the manufacturer's website) to see what CPUs your board takes, and what BIOS revision you need for it to take them.
In some really shitty cases, your board's box will say it supports some new family of chips, but then the manufacturer puts an old BIOS revision on the board, so you have to get an older chip, flash the BIOS, then put your new chip in.
Guys, I've got this motor on a snowblower and it will only run with the choke halfway on. Summer or winter, BTW. I took the carb apart and put a rebuild kit in it. Then I bought a whole new carb. Exactly the same thing! Not a bit of change with a whole new carb. Any ideas? Thanks.
Is the manifold 100% tight? Maybe it gets some air through the gaskets. Head gasket failure? Is the spark plug sitting tight - is the thread ok? Does it have good compression? If nothing of above helps it may be a mechanical problem - the cylinder and piston rings could be worn out.
I suggest opening the fuel adjustment screw a quarter turn at a time and running the engine. You can start with the choke but of course the objective is "less choke, more fuel" until the engine runs correctly.
>>917081 Dump the gas, check the in tank fuel filter. It's a replaceable part, but you may have issues finding one locally.Clean it if needed, refill with fresh gas.
Now check the small bowl below the fuel shutoff lever, make sure it's not full of crud, and make sure the fuel flows freely.(a 10MM boxend wrench will do the job for most carb work on common Honda mills.) If it does not flow when moved to "on", remove the fuel cap on the tank. If it suddenly flows, you need to replace the cap, and the carb is likely fine. (Some of the Honda EPA/CARB complaint fuel tank caps are notorious for not venting properly.)
Otherwise pull the main bowl and make sure the float is not stuck and that there is not a bunch of crud in the bowl. If you have corrosion or similar in the carb bowl and it's obstructing the main jet, you're better off just replacing the carb as a unit.
>>917065 Nah. A table saw really is one of the cornerstones of a woodshop. Tracksaws are just a circular saw on steroids. If you need a basic, bulletproof table saw cheap just get an old 1960s or before Craftsman cast iron benchtop sawsaw. You can sometimes get them as cheap at $50 with a motor. That will get you started. No need to spend the big bucks on a cabinet saw if you are just getting started.
>>917070 Black and Decker used to say you could do basically the same thing with a Workmate. I'm guessing the two have about the same level of usefulness.
I need help making a mouse pad for my Dad. I've been cross stitching for my holiday pressents. I'm planning one for my dad, but I want it to be utilitarian as well. How could I best create a mouse pad with my cross stitch pattern? I've seen some cheap possibilities with sanded plastics, but I want something nice for him. Does anyone else have any /diy/ gifts they are working on?
I just moved into my new house in Minneapolis, which was built in 1939. I have this switch in my kitchen and I can't figure out what it's for. Underneath the metal cap, there is a spot to install a small lightbulb. Does anyone know what this does, or what it was used for? When I turn it on, nothing happens.
I'm doing a statue cast out of myself just because I'm on vacation and don't have much to do, my plan is to cover my body with plastic film and use toilet paper + glue + water on it, first the front half then the rear, then once it's dried up I'd cast the front, then add the mold to it and cast it so the concrete kind of sticks together. Thought you might find this amusing. Anyways, any advice/ideas? Will I need an assistant? What could I use it for? >decoration >dressing it up and freaking... Comment too long.

>>916971 Do it in sections. Make each mold in sections, just parts of your body. Then cast each section separately. When done you can piece these concrete pieces together. You'll be able to fill in any cracks and such. After that you'll have something you can either use to make a full mold in one piece leave it as is and use that as your statue.
Doing it in sections will make it much more manageable. You'll also be able to figure out better methods as you go along.
Hey there, I am looking for advice on replicating these headphones, they arent much pics I could use for reference, the little parts that hold it together wont be a problem I think, finding something to do the "earbuds" is. I am thinking about looking for some cheap headphones with similar shape and size, what should I do, /diy/? This is my first time posting, so please be kind.
Googleing it litteraly gave me enough picks to plaster my house in reference pics. So what do you mean replicating? Do you need them to actually work? An actual part for part replica? Or do you want to look like a Nazi tank commander for your video game boner stroking?
Hey /diy/ I'm installing this after market radio into my car. The wires I need to connect have these plastic caps on them. Is is safe to just pull them off to soder them to the other wires. Also is it acceptable to just use electric tape instead of soldering? Many thanks
The plastic caps are crimp connectors, you can just pull them off. Don't use electrical tape, it'll fall apart when the weather gets warm and your stereo will either short out or have strange issues. You should either solder and heatshrink or just get some more crimp connectors.
