I need your help with what should I do with it. My room is too dark and I prefer the brighter light in my room than what it is currently. So I've been thinking about painting that dark wooden ceiling into the white or light grayish color. English is my 3rd language so I don't know how this type of ceiling is called or that shit that supports the roof. Anyway that straight wood that supports the roof would be painted in dark oak color, and the rest would be in light grayish color. Do I need to sand it down or not? The ceiling wasn't touched for over 30 years,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My sink is clogged, and I can't run the dishwasher because the sink gets full of water. When the sink gets full, it drips out through the bottom of the garbage disposal. I want to take the U pipe off the bottom and see if that's where the clog is, but I don't have the tool to do it. what kind of wrench do I need? what should I be looking for? what should I expect? I am practically illiterate when it comes to stuff like this, but it has to be done. I would appreciate some suggestions
Have you tried running the disposal when it is full of water? 10/10 times my sink is clogged on the disposal side it's because the disposal has stuff in it and not the trap, either stuff that my wife added and forgot about or clogged with fiberous stuff like to much onion peel at once (it was a weak disposal.)
Hey /diy/, I want to purify my home's air. I've heard moss is a good way to do that as well as being a nice ease into horticulture. I have a question though, I've blended moss up along with adding milk to the mixture and applied it to some pieces of wood I've found around my neighbourhood. How often do I water the moss? It's quite dry and I'm afraid to water it too much and get mold/rot.
Also, I believe the moss I've applied to the wood is pleurocarpous. If that's any help
>>1017660 Wild moss in a blender with milk and water, paint it on some kind of substrate. Wood, rock, whatever. If it doesn't hold moisture well (like a rock) use a spray bottle from walmart or something to mist it with water to keep it MOIST but not dripping wet. This is because moss is not technically a plant and has no root system and so can only thrive in damp areas. Keep it out of direct sunlight (or limit the direct sunlight) and around room temp. If it dries out it will either outright die or do dormant. Don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What would be better - a set of screwdrivers or a set of removable heads for one screwdriver?
I'm working on getting a decent toolbox for home and I just have several regular screwdrivers so I'm wondering what you'd recommend. Obviously I'm not a professional and I'd be using those for small repairs and furniture assembling at home.
>>1017363 Handle with multiple bits. Get a very nice handle that fits well in your hand. Bits are disposable. You will lose them, break them, and buy more. Make sure the handle accepts standard sizes. In my experience ratcheting handles aren't that useful. The old Easydriver is the only time I've liked a standard ratcheting screwdriver but they don't make them anymore and the knock offs are crap. Bit storage in the handle is also pretty useless. I like handles with solid cores. None of that rubberized plastic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1017363 Secret technique I just learned in the last couple years, watching Midway USA and Clickspring.
Get your box of cheap hex bits, and grind the straight slots to the exact size of your screws if you don't have one. Bits are cheap and replaceable. Or find the exact right bit and label it. Like I just labelled the bit for my 1911 stock.
Hex screw drivers are amazing and in most instances there is no reason to not use them. I got a hex torque screwdriver, as well as adapters for my big boy torque wrenches.

hey /diy/, CAD designer here. i desperetely need a 3d mouse for my work, however they're expensive ash shit and i'm a poor student. is there a way i can build one ? are there any cheap Chinese ones i could buy ?
Hey guy /diy/generates! Helping my dad clean out an old shed behind a house he just bought, and there were several finned radiators in there. You know the ones for hot water, right? Basically a copper tube with a shitload of washers soldered on them? Well, my girlfriend is a pinerest addict, and she shows me stupid shit all the time, but I remembered a pool heater built from black PVC, and I got an idea. I have a pretty decent sized garage, (20x 24 ft) and I was thinking about adding heat anyway. Here is my idea: Take a plastic barrel, insulate the fuck out of it for heat storage,...

>>1013839 Not that I know of more than you, making a wood pipe is basically wood carving. The biggest thing about wood pipes is proper usage, care, and maintenance while using it. That way it doesn't get destroy or has it lifespan shortened.
Hi, just bought a house and I can't get the fucking bed I just bought upstairs. I've found that there is a step I need to remove... if that's possible? What's the best way to do it without damaging it completely? I only have a hammer. Girlfriend gets home in 3 hours and I need it done before then. More pics to follow...
None of the grounds on any of my outlets work, and I was starting to get spotty power at two of them, so i looked in the service panel, and this is what I found.
I think the source of moisture is coming from a vent in an air duct that connects directly to the a/c evaporator coil, which blows tons of moisture and even liquid water out of it. I'm definitely going to seal that off.
As for fixing the ground/neutral buses here, I'm not electrician but i have a decent understanding of home wiring, though never tackled anything like this. Would it be feasible... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Contact your landlord, or if you're the ho.eowner, contact a LICENSED electrician and get your shit up to code. Don't try to fuck with the bus. Don't try to wire anything yourself. you're endangering yourself and others that may enter your house.
>>1012082 This guy's a pussy. >>1012072 Make sure you turn your main off first, unland the wires and strip them back a bit to get untarnished metal, throw in a new bus, bolt the motherfucker back together, coat it in No-Ox. Done.
>>1010007 You cant cure an infestation with just traps, you need to eliminate all food source and patch all holes/hiding spots as well as a comprehensive killing and deterring strategy ie poison and traps and maybe cats
Looking for some recommendations when it comes to gas masks. I know there are a good deal of surplus Israeli and soviet Russian varieties, probably some mixed in that didn't meet tolerances, but that's about it. Obviously I'd like something reliable either with easily available filters, or standardized modern sockets.
After dealing with some asbestos the other day, and that stuff used for walls that turns into a strong base when it contacts water, decided I ought to get something. Might as well go a bit further than a respirator.

A college kid had his foot blown off in Central Park on Sunday after stepping on a homemade firecracker, officials said.
“It was a homemade device. They probably tried to light it on Friday night, but it didn’t go off because of the rain,” a source said. “[Investigators] found wet matches near it. It probably just went off because of the friction of him stepping on it.”

So I'm sick of bottling my homebrew and want to cut down or eliminate bottling by switching to a keg. Few small problems though. I have a minifridge floating around but it is too short to fit a standard 5 gallon keg. There are 3 gallon kegs available brand new but they're like 30 dollars more. But they're more portable, would fit in my fridge, and while it wouldnt eliminate bottling, it would significantly reduce the amount I need to do. So brewfags, is it worth buying the 3 gallon now and a 5 gallon when I can afford to upgrade the cooler or just buy the 5 and figure out another way to keep the big bastard cold?
Get a standard keg, buy an old chest freezer off craigslist or wherever for mad cheap, make a keezer, never bottle again. Also depending on the size of your freezer you can add more kegs later when you have the money if you decide to ever make larger or multiple batches.
I need help diy. I need it. I am literally boiling with red hot seething rage. Fucking geese. Canadian rat with wings. They have always been a nuisance, i live behind a small lake. They came into my yard today and destroyed my garden. All my cantaloupe and watermelon are dead. Shit everywhere. I need a way to make them leave and never come back. I can't kill them or use firearms. Its a protected bird and i can be arrested for discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a home. Cheap would be cool too. I thought about a bb gun.

I built a tube OD from a schematic I found online.
It was designed for 120v mains but I have adapted it to 220v operation since I live in a 220v country.
I have eliminated the voltage doubler section and used a full bridge rectifier and a single 33uf 350v cap and I am getting some kind of mains hum, which I believe is due to the filter section being inadequate. I think I need another filter cap, but I'm kind of a newb at this, so I'm pretty sure adding another cap just like this will not solve my problem. any help would be greatly appreciated.
I was the OP from last week who posted asking for help with a curcuit with a 5v motor for a fan and 6 UV LEDs, running of a 9v battery.
I said I'd post some images of the build so yeh, a bit late, but better than never! Anyway, the device is a nail polish drier/hardner for the missus so thanks to the anons in that thread who helped. The device dries/hardens the nail polish about 3-4 times faster than the typical manic waving of hands with fingers spread out.
So I heard there are some modularfags here. As someone who has no soldering experience, where do I get started with diy eurorack modules? What sort of soldering iron do I need? I've watched enough youtube videos to know how soldering works, I just need to practice before I attempt to build something like a synth module. Where should I start, and where did you start?
Lay down some self leveling compound first if you're worried about it. Unless you seriously fucked up the subfloor I don't see it mattering but other than that a roll of underlayment first may be another option as well.
You could do a sheet of quarter inch ply, they make a kind specifically for underlayment that's smooth on both side. Or use acetone to take up the glue. Low points aren't an issue(assuming they're not large enough to affect multiple planks), high points are. Get a cheap wood chisel and a small hammer and knock them off. Plywood will only compensate for bumps so much, and it doesn't matter how good a sub floor looks as long as it's flat.
Ive been a tattoo artist for 3 years+ 2 years of apprenticeship.

I keep a half frozen 1 gallon container of water on the carpet next to my bed to drink during the night. An sometimes next to the couch if my gf stays over. I can't sleep in the same bed with her, i have to sleep by myself.
I've been doing this routine for 5 years. But recently spilled about a gallon of water next to my bed, and next to the couch when I was passed out drunk or my covers knocked it over in the night.

>>1016368 It is from the mold and becteria that the water gave life to, you will need to lift the carpet and scrape off the caked on becteria on the floor, and full strength bleach or other stuff to nuke the area, and then... stop spilling
>>1016368 The smell is never going to fully go away until you stop letting moisture infiltrate the area.
First thing first, if absolutely must continue to leave it on the floor then you need to devise a way to keep the condensation from running into the carpet. A cheap plastic tray from the dollar store of some shape should work just fine.

Hey guys, I know you still interest in those things and I know you can help me with my new project. I want to make a new sound system for my working laboratory which allow sound experience: I want to use a processor (IMX6L) and some DAC/amplifier (TAS5760M) embedded in each speaker box to drive them. The ULTIMATE purpose is to manage the EQ and volume of each speaker via I2S.
Here on the next picture is my electronic arch, I got in hands the I2C configuration with a beautiful Nucleo F303 code. And I know how to send data to the DAC/Amplifier with an audio precision tool.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
