>>1011059 was trying to take apart some plastic part with a flat head screwdriver. slipped, stabbed through the webbing between my index finger and thumb and exited on the far side of my hand. absolutely no bleeding tho which was strange, guess i missed everything. was neat because i could blow into the entry wound and blow up my hand like a glove.
Having some quality issues on my makerbot replicator. I releveled the build plate and lowered the z offset (to hopefully print without rafts b/c prints don't stick otherwise). Anything I should do / check?
Hey /diy/. I just bought a new office chair for my cave but I need more space for chair so I need to get rid of that old dresser. The problem is, I can't think where to put my printer. Can you give me some ideas?
>cave literally.. not many options there, but, you dont need to be looking at/tripping over printers 24/7. rollboard and under the righthand side of the desk - be better with something that had a drawer or two (extra storage/less liable to stand on printer. Ohterwise, build shelf on the wall (top left, high up?) or get one of those folding tv / monitor stands, can bolt it to the wall anywhere, can fold it in/out the way to get access to the shelves (if on right)/printer when needed.

Otherwise, there are videos showing how bottles and whatnot are manufactured en masse. If you want a skill, get onto glassblowing. You will learn a lot, and you might have to look a bit hard to find people who teach or do classes. Wherever you may be, take a look. Usually they're worth it as long as you enjoy it. Generally glassblowers know how to get certain parts into the right places, but more complex shapes require a little thinking.

Oh man, i feared it would not be as easy. I guess i could ask around a bit, but yea, it was more of a gimmick project. The glasses i would make would be of the shape in the picture. So its really darn simple. But damn glass cant be as easy to pour into molds like other things.
>>1014885 >would I be able to install the new lock from Medeco into the Shlang knob?
From the Medeco catalog: > KIK/KIL cylinders are designed for quick retrofit of nearly all polular brands of knob and lever type cylindrical locksets making them an ideal application for office doors, storage and file rooms, or residential doors; virtually any door where cylindrical hardware is used.
Sounds like a yes. You may have to specify which lockset... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I got the Teen Suicide "It's the Big Joyous Celebration, Let's Stir the Honeypot" vinyl and tried listening to it on my Linn Sondek LP12 and it sounded really slow even though its completely new. My record player is completely fine and all my other records play completely fine except this one. The record was shipped from America, could it be they aren't meant to be played on European record players? I don't know, it could be an issue with the record itself but yeah... I don't know.
I've got a record player from project audio, cost about £250, and it's a belt drive with a 2 speed motor, one for 12" one for 7" If I remember correctly the 12" rotation is like 33 1/3 rpm and the 7" is somewhere near 44-85rpm depending on its manufacturer or whether or not it's a single.
If it sounds really slow at 33 1/3rpm try bumping it up to 44.
On my it's just a motor with two gears, ita make it easy for me to move my belt, it may not be so easy for you.
Does replacing old dirt pads on a swamp cooler make it cool better? I just moved to a dry area so I'm not very experienced. Swamp cooler works great until it hits about ~105 degrees then it only makes the house tolerable. Will replacing them make it work better? The pads look pretty dirty so I'm planning to replace them anyway.
Hey /diy/, I want to make a small scale ghetto forge with what I have lying around.
So far I have: A Large Coffee can A Propane torch Steel tubing Some concrete
The place I work has pretty much every tool I need to work but I was having some trouble with the lining/refractory chamber part. Most forges I've seen or have researched use clay, ceramic wool or just plain steel, I was wondering if a coffee can with a cement lining, or mixture of cement and sand would work? I've heard some peopel saw cement is works but won't last long and other... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm in the market for a new jigsaw. I've always had corded, the one I'm currently using is an old Bosch D handle that is almost as old as I am but it's solid. It's only now that it's starting to show signs of age. I wont throw it out but I'd also like something that's cordless to make life on site a bit easier.
I have had battery jigsaws in the past but it was in the day before lithium batteries.
My question is not what brand to buy or what jigsaw, I'm going to match my current platform and the reviews I've read... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
it's not avaible in Europe and there are not real alternatives in the market atm, plus I need it to be 220v. I was thinking of just rigging something like a LiPoFe4 motorcycle battery and a 1000w inverter... thoughts/ideas?
I want to build a table. My Idea is to get wooden board, which should be as natural as possible. Then I wnat to maul(i dont know if this is the correct word for this but I assume) it in the middle. Afterwards I want to put it back together with resin and in which are LEDs. So my question is, if somebody has experience with resin and could give me some tips how to work with it and which i should take. I dont want he resin to be transparent, I would like it to be milky. But not to milky that the LED light cant get trough. Thanks in advance for the help
Pic related(it should approximately look like this just with the resin with the LEDs added)
I'm working on a crt monitor project which involves painting and customizations. This particular monitor has an indented logo that I want to remove / fill in to a smooth finish. Idk the specific type of plastic this monitor is made of , but I'm willing to bet it's abs plastic. What is the best way to fill this logo in? My research is coming up short.
I already know not to use Bondo because it's like fiberglass shit that will flake off over the plastic. I'm unsure if simply using any random epoxy will do. I've heard... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1013483 I happen to have both JB weld Quick Setting Epoxy (the 2-part syringe stuff) and JB Weld Plastic Repair Epoxy Putty. Are those good choices or simply "yeah it'll do its a monitor i dont give a fuuuuck"??
/mu/'s guitar general couldn't really help me so I hope this topic is appropriate for this board.
Anyway, I have a Gibson Les Paul with a chip on one of the corners of the headstock. The corner is supposed to be pointed. However, because of the chip, it appears chamfered and looks ugly up close. I don't have the broken piece anymore (bought it used for cheap)
What are some ways I can restore the headstock? I heard tinted super glue works with small surface chips but I'm not sure if it applies here.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1012942 You will have to rebuild the corner with bondo and then sand it down to shape and refinish it, or you can learn to live with it and treat it as "wear", personally I'd go with the latter as I find refinishing work to be a pain in the ass.
Go check out "Daves world of fun stuff" on YouTube, he covers a lot of this sort of stuff.
So attached is my little swamp cooler. The moist evap pad surrounds the fan intake and outputs coldish air. However it doesn't really work very well. I'd have to hold the thing, and point it at my face 3 inches away to really cool off. So I'm wondering if these thing can be altered to work better, or if you guys have a better idea for DIY car ac. What do you think?
>>1012974 There are holes drilled in the sides and back of the cooler. But there isn't enough intake, so I've been using it with the lid open and hoping that the pad surrounding the fan intake is enough. The fan itself takes in air from the sides and back.
I accidentally punched a gaping hole in my desk. It doesn't have to look pretty, but what can I do to get a nice flat surface again? A mouse pad goes over it anyways, so its mostly just to keep it level.
