This. Plus the water will have sediments in it that will build up on the fins over time. Cleaning that shit off is no joke and it ruins the efficiency.

So /diy/, i have some plans, and want to create a few things. Maybe even eventually sell it.

But alas, it would require some home made or at least custom made bottles. And i have no clue how to make molds for glass, or how to even approach this.

And if you try to google that, you only get shitty reddit tier how to make a glass out of your wine bottle instructions.

Any tips on how to approach this? Also the design of the custom pieces would be a really simple tube , with only a few indents on the bottom.

Occasionally we get the glassblowing thread up.

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.

I just fucked up my car's dashboard display.
It's a simple flexible plastic plate, semi-transparent in some places completely opaque in others.

My objective was to make all the green parts white becuase green looked horrible, but I managed to fuck it up by dipping it in nail polish (although I did remove all the green).

How can I make another piece? Should I order laser cut vynil from somewhere? Can I make something similar?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes. The current plan is just to lay down a thin layer pf rigid plastic or metal so that its flat like before.

Trying to figure out if they sell a 3 pin connector like the one shown, but with a switch in the middle. I tried googling all over and couldn't find one for a 3 pin, only for 2 pin.

If not, how hard would it be to make a switch that connects to a 3 pin connector so that I may turn it on and off at whim?

Damned easy. What is each wire used for? Is it for AC or DC? Do you want to switch all three wires or just the 'hot' wire?
>>
>>1014417
Not OP but for three pins you have Power (DC), ground, and PAM. 4 pin just adds a tachometer signal.
>>
>>1014415

Just get a toggle/rocker switch and put it inline with the red wire. Leave the ground and tach (yellow) line.

Does /diy/ use paint sprayers?
Can anyone recommend a good model for small projects?

Be more specific.
>>
For small projects? Use a paint brush.

For models use an air brush, not a sprayer.

I'm thinking of using one tomorrow for a small rabbit hutch but that's more for fun than efficency.

>>1014007
They're only good for painting complicated areas like pipes, textured surfaces, filigree, etc. Anything else, a roller or brush does the job much faster.
