>>1015660 Yes and no. It would take off the loop for sure, but the idea is to twist the end so that it snaps the tie behind or inside the cone so that the cone can be removed, leaving a hole that can be filled.
Using bolt cutters would leave some of tie flush or proud of your wall, fucking up your finish.
make sure the new fuel line isnt kinked in the gas tank pinching off flow. You may have installed it too far. If not, carb. bowl needs to be drained or carb, cleaned. Should be a drain screw somewhere on the carb.
I am going to be staying on a farm for a while and was told to build a cabin. I am looking for some ideas (dimensions, styles), tips, links (free plans) or anything that can be of assistance. I'm not sure of the dimensions but it should be small as is it just for shelter and sleeping.. no kitchen or bath. It should also be cheap. They told me to look into "pole buildings." I have no experience with such a task so anything will help.
If I were you I would go for a simple flat roofed shed with a 2x4 frame clad in ply if longevity isn't an issue otherwise clad in larch or similar. It's easy to do, takes little time and is relatively inexpensive.
>>1014367 It could become permanent, I'm sure that they will keep it up after i'm gone and if I return maybe I'll add onto it. There won't be any insulation or flooring other than plywood. I'm sure the roof will be something basic for now like plywood. Other than a door there might be a window.
I live in a apartment and I am bored out of my mind. I wanted to get a hobby but most interesting hobbies require a work space. Apartments are limited and you can't use things that are fire hazards. Like I had a interest in glass working but that requires obviously a torch and that isn't happening in a apartment.
What are some other similar hobbies i could try that are apartment friendly?
>>1007988 Square cages don't work well with round things. I'm sure you're trolling, but on the off chance that you aren't, redesign it round, home depot has small round steel rod already made for the bars, and make sure you make it a clamp style closer.
if i want to go past 15A total draw on a power tool automatic dust collection switch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001BSL1BM/ i can hook up a relay into the vac outlet right? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000JJM7ZS/
and probably use another circuit for the relay output.
I'm thinking of setting up a small Aquaponics system using a 3 gallon tank that looks much like the picture posted. I'll be using this guys system . https://youtu.be/ Do you guys have any hints or have your own system you wanna share?
You also pasted the link without the actual video code. Personally, I find anything under 55 gallons to be too small to properly maintain balance. The smaller the amount of water the quicker things can go wrong.
How do I learn how to do things like this? How do I learn to create things and repair? I have no father figure and never learned these things. What tools should I have, where should I begin? What kinds of projects should I start with?
>>1016452 I don't know dude, about repairs, take something easy to take apart and clean it, like a Super Nintendo controller, then slowly go for more complex stuff. If you are looking to learn how to make stuff, just find something you think is cool, like knifes for example, and go make some, watch how-to youtube videos and tutorials. Some tools I would recomend for general pourposes are: protection glasses, an angle grinder, a dremel, files, sandpaper, 10 minute epoxy glue, a drill and lots of scrap parts.
at your age i was in the same situation. get a screwdriver and take things apart. what would you like to do? - electronics? go look for kits at aliexpress and get whatever strikes your fancy and the basic tools you'll need. cheap soldering iron and solder, some snips. buy the cheapest stuff, if you'll like it you'll soon figure out which things you'll need. - wood stuff? get some wood, make a box, look for tutorials. - music? take apart a guitar, an amp, whatever you get your hands on.

Hello /diy pic related to my question, they say on the product page that this amp requires a 13.5V 3A power supply for "optimal results" I have a similar 25W amp that I power with a simple 12V 1A power supply and it works just fine. Does it really make that much of a difference if I use the 13.5V 3A supply? or a 12V 2A would be just as good?
why does it work with 1A when it requires "25W"

>>1016357 You can underpower drivers and not hurt them. They just wont get as loud as they are capable of. Its not a flat scale though. A driver designed for 3 amps wont sound 1/3rd as loud if you only give it 1 amp. It will probably sound quite a bit softer compared to a 3 amp power source and the same volume level.
I've got a set of 125 watt speakers and they sound great even though my amp only puts out 75 watts a channel. The amp gives them what it can and they take it because they are a passive device. They aren't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've gotten an idea for this summer. I plan on doing a stag (probably only the head) out of branches, so far I've found two nice branches will I use as the antlers. Question is what should I use as the "skull"? Wire, crambled up paper, lots of twigs, maybe? Also, should I use hot glue/wood glue to keep shit together? I want it to look as rustic as possible but I am not as artsy as I would like.
Hi /diy/, I'm back again with more boat repair problems.
In the process of cutting out the floor, I finally accepted that the only way to get all of it out and do the best job possible is to pry the cap off. Fast forward to today: rub rail is off, rivets out, adhesive around the sides cracked. The bow and sides came up easy, but the transom area of the cap refuses to budge. I have removed all the putty, cracked all the glue behind the splashwell, etc, and still it refuses to pop off. What the hell am I doing wrong?
I have a collection of drum sticks that I want to make a "frame" for. I want to to make a circular shape with sticks pointing outward, problem is I don't know how to make the sticks stay in place without anything visibily doing so. Any ideas? Pic not related
>>1015996 Drill a small hole in to the bottom of each stick. Place the stick vertical on a flat piece of wood. Use a screw to go from the bottom of the wood, through the flat surface, and in to the bottom of the drum stick.
I live with my family in an apartment building that supplies AC in the summer and heat in winter via the same central radiator unit(s). My bedroom happens to be a small extension of the building probably not to code, with it's own unit, tapped off my brothers room next door in what used to be facing the exterior, now walled off (definitely not to code). And, because it's walled off entirely, my brother resorts to using a combination of ceiling fan and cold humidifier to fight off the inevitable hotbox his room turns into during the winter, with no ventilation and the hot pipes running to my room, so I don't freeze. Now he also uses some kind of weight on top of some aluminum foil to try and dissipate the heat rising from his radiator, but I was wondering, even if it's silly, if there is some sort of thing I can build, a well designed heat sink of some kind, that would improve upon this. Ideally it would be compact and be able to sit upon the radiator.
>>1015891 >some kind of weight on top of some aluminum foil to try and dissipate the heat rising from his radiator, Are you, perchance, trying to make the radiator cooler by dissipating its heat into the room while wondering why the room becomes so hot?
>Ideally it would be compact and be able to sit upon the radiator. It's called blanket. Throw it on top of the radiator to stop it from heating the room.
I have a monitor on which the power supply has failed, tryed repairing it and still keeps burning resistor so I give up, and its not in the monitor circuitry cause its separated via small transformer, which is driven somehow, that differs from linear power supplies MONITOR IS RATED FOR ABOUT 30W
Now what Im gonna do is build a completelly new power supply to substitute voltages that should be 1.3 V 6 V 14 V 45 V 70V all should be AC,now I can use common power transformers except maybe for 45 and 70 Volts, what would be the easiest to get these votlages ??

>>1015640 Wire wheel would be faster An angle grinder would be more appropriate than a drill Sand paper flapper wheel or ball wpuld also work. Just some sandpaper acetone or some other solvent depends entirely on what they painted it with.
We just bought our first home, and while getting the HVAC vents cleaned the technician managed to fuck up some paint near the vent. My husband pulled off all the loose paint, but pic related remains. The question is: does he remove this really stuck on paint before repainting, or is it okay just to paint over it?
>>1015597 >My husband pulled off all the loose paint,
Judging from the pic, I'd suspect that is not just paint and your husband removed the loose texture sprayed on the ceiling. The texture around the vent may become loose due to humidity / condensation associated with the cold air. If the ceiling was textured before painting you'll need to apply a matching texture to the bare area before repainting. You should also try to make the repairs with an irregular line relative...

Hey /diy/ first time posting here, I want to build a classic wooden chest, but I'm new to woodworking so I need some dirt cheap materials to build a few "practice" pieces. Are shipping pallets made of sturdy enough wood for this? Max weight I'd put in it 100ibs.
>>1015606 This guy is right, however pallets have specific stamps on them that indicate how they were made/where they're from. You just want the one's that aren't chemically treated, which are easy to find if you can read the codes
>>1015580 Most pallets will be strong enough for what you have in mind, as has been stated by >>1015606 and >>1015650 you should try to get pallets that are as clean as possible, not knowing you location I can only tell you what works for me, I typically look for free pallets in industrial areas, some big box stores will also have pallet "graveyards" just ask, another tip I can give you is to look for places that have large...

Any sewers here? I want to make a hat like this but can't find any real patterns online. I think i have a general idea.
Im planning on using coyote, my grandfather took a couple last year on his property and had their pelts tanned, and he's letting me have them. He wanted to make a Crockett hat for himself but his hands are just bad enough that he can't handle the sewing. I found a pattern for that one no problem.
So what im thinking based off the crockett pattern to make mine, is to first cut a round top. A front band for the forehead about 4"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1015325 Also if you're not familiar with patterns, they generally make suggestions for what fabric to use as a liner. Typically the fur is the liner for this type of hat, but you're flipping it for aesthetics. I'd line it in a flannel I think.

Some guys trapped a huge bubble of air underwater using transparent sheet vinyl, netting, nylon cord and welded octagonal restraining rings. It's tied to boulders on the bottom to keep it from floating.

>>1014012 Ur retarded. Ten grand can have you a really nice car. U can buy some shell for like a grand. And the rest of it can be go fun parts. You watch sales/deals and learn some skills. Easy pz. Won't be any super car. But if you can get like 3500lbs with like 450ish WHP. U can have tons of fun.
>>1014012 love it, i wanna try it. my only concern is air exchange, sure you can maintain a pressure, but that doesnt mean you can maintain oxygen levels. id like to try something like a 25' diameter build in a large lake and try to get some plants in there see how they last
>>1013770 Short answer: no. You /can/ get a low ratio current transformer (try EBay) and run the secondary through your meter. You'll add a small amount of error to your reading, but it's really the only way.
>>1013786 Also, the problem with CTs is they take a certain amount of energy to excite. This means that if you use a 3:1, 600A CT (to read 600A on your 200A meter) it might not be able to give you a reading at 0.1A and if it did there error would be huge because your meter is going to see 0.03A So you'd be better off getting a higher accuracy low current meter for that.
