Looks like a patch antenna. If the metal plate there is the driven element and the PCB is the ground plane, then it's A. If it's the other way around, then B. If I had to guess I'd say B (for the lack of an apparent feed point connecting the coax to the plate), but I'd need to see the other side - ideally in clear enough detail to see traces on the PCB - to say for sure.
Hello /diy/. This is my first post here so I apologize if this is a repeating thread. I've been wanting to get into woodworking lately but have no idea where to start. I'm looking up schools but they're out of state or they're online schools and have bad reviews. Where do you guys suggest I learn some basic wood working skills? Where did some of you wood workers learn from?
>I've been wanting to get into woodworking lately but have no idea where to start.
A decent table saw with a cast iron top and a solid fence is the absolute best way to start and will encourage you to be creative, have more fun, and raise your expectations when it comes to your own projects. I played around with wood for so long without one and it was tremendously frustrating not even having a way to make a dead accurate cut. I might have quit altogether.
You can get an old Craftsman on craigslist or what not for $200 or less though honestly sometimes they don't come with riving knives and that's bad news. Basically, just get a table saw with a riving knife.
>>914923 partly it's because you suck, but mostly it's because your welder is the cheapest AC buzzbox that can be bought, these turds literally cannot keep a 6011 lit, and that's assuming you don't overheat it trying to arc up.
My girlfriend is weird and told me not to get her anything for Christmas even though she snapchatted me a picture of the wrapped presents she apparently got me. I wanted to make her something special because I'm poor and can't afford Sephora or anything like that.
>she collects garden gnomes >her favorite animal is an owl Should I sculpt an owlgnome out of clay or make an owlgnome plushie? How do I into crafts?
I will use the money I saved to get a land and leave the "civilization", build some "organic" house and live there until I can. What should I learn? I don't want to die in the middle of nowhere, just try to rethink the way I am used to live... I cannot fight against the system, but I can make my own life.
Anyone here familiar with Smooth-On? I've noticed occasionally when I'm using their moldstar 16 resin it turns opaque white, when normally it's clear. Does anyone know why this would happen? Pic related, how it turns white at the top (the top was exposed to air, if that might be relevant)
>>914762 I've got a Stanley that takes those and I find it to be more trouble than it's worth. Changing or flipping the blades is a pain in the ass, the slider button is unpleasant and the blades wiggle/rattle. Because of that, I always end up passing over it for a pocket knife or something else.
I'm pretty set on a breakable blade knife or two, just wondering if there are others I should consider before NT Cutter.
is somewhat valid but you need to make sure to not buy shit blades. the olfa cutters all come with good (enough) quality blades but if you just go down to the hardware store and buy whatever dime bin shit it wont be worth anything. Those titanium coated blades sound gimmicky but they actually work rather well... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Sup /diy/, the usb port fell out of my keyboard. It looks like a clean break, would i be able to solder it back in just like that? Probably a very elementary question, but I'm bad at soldering. Pic shows the break and the USB port. I really need this to work, the keyboard was extremely expensive
first thing is you need solder braid to remove all the solder on the pads and the pins of the connector. this is to make sure it lies flat and fits the hole. next is a fine tip and very fine solder. do the 2 big mounting pads first to center all the pins, then the 5 pins. if you get bridges, remove with solder braid and try again. or dump some flux on the bridge, and heat. flux is magic at removing bridges.
also, know that the little connector will come off again in the future, maybe this time ripping out traces. if it were me, i'd solder a cable on permanently.
Your shitty picture is shitty But if you have room, then a snare Remove the wire from the back of a picture. Loop on one end and thread the loose end through the loop. Secure loose end to fixed object Make it small so only the head will fit. Alternate method is to add a weight and a trigger When rat sticks head in snare, it releases the trigger and weight lifting animal into the air hanging by the neck. A snare is a killing trap, don't use if you have pets.
>>914633 A 5 gallon bucket, half full of water. An empty soda can, a wire coat hanger, and some peanut butter. Duct tape.
Straighten the hanger as necessary to give you a relatively straight section that's 4 inches longer than the bucket mouth width. Cut this section off. Drill a hole in the center of the bottom of the empty soda can. Thread the can onto the hanger wire, so that the wire serves as an axle. Apply a generous band of peanut butter around the midsection of the can. Center this assembly across the mouth... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi i want to make honey Mead but not as usual, the idea is make a 5-8% alcohol beverage with a perfect foam on top (like beer). I'm thinking in use lecithin soya to make this possible, any suggestions?
Some old recipes http://realbeer.com/spencer/Digby-recipes/
>>914406 if you want foam, add carbonation. allow to finish fermenting = no more bubbles/a bubble every hour or so, siphon and add a little more sugar/honey to ferment a little more and carbonate. Or use a diy sodastream or dry ice when bottling.
>>914380 Clothes stand made from an inverted Ikea Frosta stool.
The wood is slightly bent in the middle unfortunately as I used a scrap piece I found in the garage.
I was originally looking for shelf brackets to use for the feet when I came across this idea http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/diy-shelf-brackets-made-from-i-63635 . The stool obviously came with a seat which I ended up using as a base. This helps keeps the stand bottom heavy and also levels out any unevenness in the right angle feet/struts.
Hy /diy/ , i need some help : I have an MSP430 microcontroller and with a thermistor i have made a themperature sensor . The hardware part is done but now i have problem at the code part , i didn't quite get useful information on the internet and i wonder if you could redirect me on useful sites or give some tips. Thanks :)
>>914331 Assuming you will be controlling some HVAC equipment with that thing, how are you handling the higher voltage? I was thinking of making myself a thermostat but my unit is all 120VAC controls which makes it a bitch
The display has 14 pins , it is not like in the picture . The project is not made for hvac equipment , but anyway I used a voltage divider between the thermistor and GND . It will just be plugged by usb in laptop .
>>914288 >>914289 At the top of the stairs I would attach them to the walls. As you go down I would use those nice 4x4s as an attachment point. I would only put one in the floor at the bottom. Like pic related. Only at the very end. I'd probably only use a single pipe, not a double like my pic.
>>914250 Tig. But I only ever got to use tig a handful of times.. Migs good too. Theres some drawbacks like really tight corners. But maybe theres a nozzle that can direct the gas a bit better so you can have your wire fed further out.
But I don't normally plan to work with mild steels and such. DOM. Stainless. cmoly. And aluminums. Im really into gokarts. One day when I got like a grand or two to drop on a setup I just might. But thats in the very far future/another life kinda deal right now.
