im a newfag when it comes to electronics, and im a bit scared of li-ion cells, so i thoughtvid come and see if i was doing this right.
ive had an old laptop battery lying around and one of those cheap usb battery banks, so i decided to expand it a little. i plan on wiring up all of the batteries in paralell and using them as one cell with the charging circuit. am i going to blow anything up?

Your batteries are going to die fast. It's generally bad practice to wire batteries in parallel. You never see any battery-powered electronics with this kind of arrangement.

Cell load balancing is the biggest challenge. I wouldn't use old cells that are likely no longer chemically identical.

Look up info on electric bike forums. Those dudes are pro at building balanced packs, without as much risk as venting with flame.

/blacksmithing general/ - cant get this damn coal to light edition

Got inspired by the old thread, finally got my setup and spent a wonderful 2 hours learning how hard coal is to light. then right as it started burning good I turned on my hair dryer and burned it out in 3 minuets.

anyways, lets have another thread so newbies like me can learn the basics.

Start with a real fire in your coal pit. IE, sticks and shit. Kindling level, 1/4 inch around (or 1cm for the luckies that aren't stuck with a centuries old defective system of measurement). Put a few coal pieces on top of it. Let it burn down, slowly scooping more coal into the fire from the edges of your pit. Coal will smother itself if you try to light it too fast, since the tar ooze will make it form into huge masses with no airflow. When you add new coal, add it to the edge of your fire to let it start burning down, and move it to the center only when the tar is burned...

Also, dont use a hairdryer. The air probably blows too fast and blows too much of the heat away, and it also makes your fire oxygen-rich so you metal corrodes faster in the fire. You want a large vollume of air moving at a slow speed.

If you can make your own charcoal and build a small oven out of fire bricks that works really well. You have great control over the heat. I've tried all kinds of fuels and i greatly prefer it, especially for smaller pieces and knives.

Yeah, this is the second hair dryer that I burnt out trying this. Gonna call it quits until I can save up for a real blower to put in, because my /diy/ attempts at making one have all been less than successful and the idea of coals flying at me at 230mph keeps me from sacrificing an old leaf blower. I'm also going to look into building a new forge, currently it ends up choking itself out with ash and the only way I can get air into it is through a 1/2" piece of pipe.

So I managed to get my hands on a greenhouse, 8x6 foot, but I need somewhere to put it. Ive got some paving slabs, so I dug out some turf and put in some boards to give me a border. I've marked out my levels and tried to get the ground as even as possible using a fork and a rake. I've got some sharp sand and concrete and now I need asvice on what to do next.

Can I get it even enough with basic tools? How do I mix the sharp sand and concrete? Can it be done by hand? Is it a one man job?

Hey /diy/

I just got this old compressor from my grandfather, his neighbor just passed away and his family gave all of his tools to his friends.

Sanborn model # 34B50

Either way, I looked up the model and every picture I see of this compressor has a single-head pump, which leads me to believe someone along the way put this dual-head pump on it.

My issue:

It only reaches 60 psi, I think there's a leak somewhere, there's a component on top of the pump and I'm not sure what to call it, does anyone know the name of this piece? There...

Not sure if this is the right board:

Backyard was overgrown so I went out to mow, ended up hitting the TV cable. It was wrapped around the blades something awful but nothing broken, just exposed copper now. I continued mowing but it had a different sound. Suddenly, there was an unearthly screenching sound and I turned it off. Now the cord will barely pull and, of course, I'm hesitant to try starting it again.

Suggestions?

NEED ADVICE ... so, belkin has a product that you connect your shit that usually stays on (speakers, modem, home stereo etc) to it and when you leave or want to you flip the switch and they are off. Good idea for conserving power in your house. My problem is that this unit works in 110v and my shitty country has current in 220v... any ideas?

It's a switchable power strip which is nothing special. Ask at your local hardware store or shop online.

Search "european 220 volt power strip". I just did and got plenty of hits.

Be glad you have 220, and if you also have three-phase be extra happy. Legacy US low voltage is a hangover from early post-and-bead wiring systems.

Bleach, bleach, and maybe some bleach.
Get a empty spray bottle if you can and mix up a good dilution to fill it with. Spray all of that shit down and let it sit for 15mins, then wipe down. If the smell bugs you get a bottle of whatever generic cleaner you can find for the cheapest (that the smell of doesn't bug you) and use that afterwards.

use a mix that is 95% water and the rest bleach.

Hey there /DIY/. I'm trying to add an aux video cable to my 09 acura TSX, although I don't think the details are too important in this case. The display is obviously component or composite, you can tell just by looking at it. I want to go in there and add an aux video cable connector, but I'm not quite sure if it's the best idea- I've found some very dated pinouts for older years, but I'm not sure if they're current. Does the display likely use some sort of proprietary signal, or would it use something standard like component or composite?...

Text messages are cheaper than voice calls, and you'd need to be making voice calls to transmit DTMF.

Cell phones don't use DTMF. If you hit a button while talking the other end doesn't hear DTMF like with land line phones. You'll have to create an app or external device that plays DTMF into the cell phone voice connection.

Voice calls through a cell network are digitized and compressed. Your DTMF could look like background noise and get filtered out.

Does it have to have a phone on the other end? You could get a raspberry pi and control stuff over SSH from yhe internet. Instead of using a cellphone, you might use a GSM module, which is a cellphone in a handy hackable format.

It might be best to use a GSM module and send it SMS messages to control what you want to do. For best results use encrypted text messages

your 6sn7 is a medium gain dual triode which would be fine for a line level first stage of an audio amp. You would still need some beam power tubes for the output stage. as for the transformers edcor sells very reasonably priced output transformers.

of course you have to match the output tubes with the impedance of the transformer.

You will need a power transformer which edcor sells those as well. You would need a plate voltage of less than 450v using a modern rectifier...

That on e pictured is very low power and low RPM. It would be quite safe to build and use. Operation would be slow. If you decide to use an AC/DC wall unit, make sure it has at least a 2 amp rating. When a motor stalls it eats up a massive amount of power (sometimes peaking at 90+amps for a normal battery-powered drill for instance). The motor used in that one most likely won't exceed 2-3 amps when stalled.

However, a high speed, high power unit using a blender motor requires more experience and skill to...

6 KB,
I recently moved in to a house and the previous owner was a fairly heavy smoker.

Today I had the air ducts cleaned and sanitized, registers changed, and carpet professionally cleaned. I've heard good things about air purifiers.

Are there any proven ways besides repainting the walls and tearing out the carpet?

Thanks

from my experience air purifiers don't really get rid of the smell, although give it a shot, they can be expensive but even if it doesn't work you will just end up with cleaner air and feels good to breath

After bushfires, residents use ozone generators.Perhaps you can hire a professional unit from somewhere. I don't know how they work or even if they work, maybe google it

This, an air purifier only removes the smell that's reaching the air.

Ozone and repainting/carpeting is probably the best option.

So, DIY, how tough would it be to replace the compressor on my condenser? I've gotten pro estimates and they seem outrageous.

Dunno man, looks like you'd need some pretty specialized tools and maybe a magnifying glass. That thing's pretty small, maybe you should just pay the guy.

do you have a manifold gauge, vacuum pump, nitrogen, refrigerant, oxyacetylene rig?

the reason they charge you so much is because they (usually) have to guarantee it for a few years.

Any questions?

Too much work, time, and money to do it. You can build one, but you will never get it as closer to a normal laptop.

I think you mean "laptop assembling".

The laptops you "build", with the exception of the Novena, are just laptops designed like any other that inexplicably come in kit form. You get the exact same laptop as if you'd used any normal manufacturer's options list, except you do a load more work, there's no warranty, and you don't save any money*.


* Unless you pirate Windows instead of paying for it.

Ive been doing this with my worker (2 guys + 1 including me) since monday. I've a ton of photos to share with you, the processes and the crazy things my workers did. Let's start
