Hey guys. So I've never been on /diy/ but this seems to be like the right place to ask. So I am purchasing a new house soon and would like tips on decorating, paint, and overall appeal. I know this is very general especially since I don't have the layout. Anything helps!

Hi /diy/, I recently bought a precision micro mill (Proxxon MF70, pic related) to make small parts and I have some questions. For some parts I have to make round/curved shapes and I reckoned I could do this by making a spreadsheet with relative coordinates. So making a circle with a certain radius would be achieved by x-1,y-4,x-1,y-4,x-1,y-3,x-1,y-3 etc etc. (I have more patience than I have CNC machines). Every increment of 1 represents 0,05mm, as this is the smallest definition on the wheel nonius. I think such a fine definition would not be really a hindrance and can be easily filed/sanded smooth (tolerance in the 0,0x mm range isn't much of an issue here)

Would anyone know a smart/fast/easy way to convert circles and curves of a certain radius and angle to a list/spreadsheet of relative coordinates? So a small program/app where you can put in a radius and you get a list of x and y shifts as a result, preferably in table/xls form, would be ideal but I don't know if such a thing exists. Any help would be much appreciated.

Btw I'm quite new to metal working so maybe there's something completely obvious I'm missing here.

So, I've got this coffee table. It's really great. It's a custom, hand-made one-of-a-kind. It's simple, kind of like a poker table with no drawers or anything underneath the surface.

Presently, I set my laptop on there along with a second monitor and just lay on the couch and compute all day every day. I'm always worried about spilling drinks on my hardware, however.

So I was thinking of configuring my laptop to function as normal while closed (I'm assuming this is easily possible) and just relying solely on the second monitor, then somehow fastening the laptop to the underside of the table (obviously I use USB mouse/keyboard also). Seems like a good plan, right? That way it's safe from risk of spillage.

The question I have for you, /diy/, is how best to attach the laptop to the "bottom" of the coffee table. Really it is a question of what simple structure can I build and/or fasten to the underside of the table itself that will secure the laptop, in it or on it -- ideally with minimal damage to the table -- while still allowing for easy retrieval should I need to access the laptop directly for any reason (power off/restarts, cables, etc).

It has to be enclosed or have rails or stops on at least 3 sides so the laptop doesn't slide and fall out if the table gets bumped or moved, and allow cables to protrude. Small nails and screws are fine, if needed, also command hooks or basically anything low-budget and easy because I am not technically or mechanically inclined.

I'm not sure exactly what will work best but I was imagining some kind of metal grating, or a series of wires or maybe something like those mail slots/cubbies you might see on a desk in an office. Hell, I would even be willing to install a damn dish rack under there as long as it works. IDGAF if it looks cheap as I personally don't care about looks, I never have guests and it will be out of sight and mind anyway.

Thoughts, ideas, suggestions, questions, advice...? Thanks.

Hey /diy/

A while ago, a wheel fell off of my wheelchair. I assume that it fell together with what it was supposed to be holding in in the first place. I can put it back into the chair but when I move a bit around it just falls down.

When I looked into the base I even had no clue how it was supposed to hold inside in the first place - the thing the wheel got put in was ultrasmooth.

Is this fixable somehow? Can I buy a new wheel or should I send the wheelchair back (since I still have the warranty)?

So I had this sub woofer connected to my computer for about 7 years now and recently discovered that it sounds bad.
So the problem is: I connect everything and it sounds, but depending on how you connect the speakers it would sound one or another (left or right), and if I make it to sound both of them i t wouldnt sound good.
I think it's a line in problem that it's not connecting correctly.. Does someone had the same problem in the past?

hello fellow /diy/ers!
got some actually pretty decent laptop in return for a favour. decided to actually use it insteat of reselling. thing is battery is dead. decided to replace the all-hail-to-the-18650. while tearing apart the enclosure i ripped a temp sensor off the pcb. pic related. 2 questions:
1. would it work somewhat safely without that one sensor because soldering flexcables is a pain in the ass.
2. the metal clips holding the fuckers together: once removed how to reattach to ensure same conductivity?

I can't answer your questions, but I can add one. I read that some laptop charging circuitry remembers that the batteries died and will not charge new ones unless you reprogram the charging circuitry, which would require information not readily available.

I have some old laptops that I would like to repair same as you are planning. One thing that really pisses me off is that some laptops refuse to boot off dc power whether the battery is good or not, or even installed for that matter.
>>
>would it work somewhat safely without that one sensor

'somewhat safely' is the operative term. or, it may refuse to charge at all without it, meaning you'd have to solder a resistor in its place.

> once removed how to reattach

one way is to make an electric welder using a microwave transformer. youtube has vids on battery-tab welding. simpler way is a good 35W soldering iron. you'll probably need to file/grind off the nickel coating to make the solder stick. if the tabs break,...

Toothpaste or Hand cream with glycerine.

Works pretty well, but in 2 years you will have to change them eventually.

otherwise you could use an grinder and grind the both survaces to mirror shine finish, this helps more than most thermal greases.

I got over 20 degrees lower temps with grinding and using liquid metal as cooling medium

and then really just a small drop in the middle and place the cooler on it.

I'm currently studying web design, and I came across something that I can only describe as high quality black magic.

Im as fond of /diy/ as the next Man - but, I cant remeber a year where I haven't got my moneys worth out of a car breakdown/recovery association membership. Can have the ability to do everything - but lock yourself out in the middle of fucking nowhere, tools in the car, and its raining ? - you'l be glad. Change a tyre on a motorway/busy highway? - fuck that.

Where I would agree, 100-pro - check your spare, and carry a good one.. and if you driving the kind of shitheap where someones stole the jack,...

Celebrating 7 months looks fucking needy and abnormal.
You shouldnt celebrate an anniversary until a year.

Does she have some things that need to be fixed you haven't fixed yet? You should fix them. Also it's getting cold and you don't need to know sewing to thread her initials into some mittens. Girlfriends love mittens with their name on them. Also mason jars with handles on them... Just go to etsy and see what popular things you can make..

27 KB,
So, recently I bought this thing:
https://www.amazon.com/Kemo-Electronic-Ultrasonic-Signal-Generator/dp/B00NRH95AY/

I didn't realize that the unit doesn't come preinstalled with a barrel connector. It just has two wires marked [-] and [+].

Is it possible to take a common electronic device 12v power supply (say, from an old router), strip the barrel connector, and solder the wires directly onto the thing and have it operate safely?

If not, what should I do to power this thing?

Pic related. It's the device in question.

Yes. ensure that the power supply output isn't rippled though, that could cause issues
>>
>>1088803
I thought the whole point of power supply is to provide uniform power? Can I just plug it into a surge protector and make it not ripple? I'm very new at this stuff.

>>1088811
He just means to make sure it isn't a shitty power supply. Poor power supplies may vary their voltage and only average around 12V; better ones will stay over to their target. You could look at the supply's output on a scope to check if you've got one, but if not it'll probably be just fine. Also, make sure your brick is rated for equal or more than the amperage your thing will draw.

Wash it. Wash it again. Done.

>>1088677
and soak that shit in rubbing alcohol then wash it again

>>1088659
Wash well once, very hot water; soak in a solution of 1 tablespoon of bleach to 1 gallon of water for 5 minutes; rinse and let air dry. Use a light coat of food grade oil or shortening on any steel parts. You're good to go.
