First thread... I like to repurpose items for a better benefit. I've got this old kitchen table that I want to use as a work bench/table. The thing about it is I want a durable finish that will clean with ease. I have no idea what to use(never got into wood working) Don't care what it looks like but it needs to hold up to oils. Does that make any sense?
>>914090 does your home have a machine shop? Are you willing to buyfag all the complex components you have no hope of machining? Then yes you can do it! http://www.jmaireland.com/build%20your%20own%20turbine.pdf
>>914063 Raise it up above your head on a stand or something. Then you can start a siphon flow. You can place a clothespin on the end to turn the flow on and off. No pumping needed. Make sure to tape the connections well to prevent leaks.
Hello /diy/. Not sure if this is against the rules or not, but this post is not about making stuff.
Lately, I started to feel really lonely, and realised that all my ex-gfs bored me because they were not interested in doing shit. Just buying stuff, watching tv and stuff. Not that I want a woodworker girl or something, but someone that can see value in creating something, you know.
So, what do you think on the subject? Do you have a nice girl that do stuff too? You think I'm being too stupid?
>>913914 Scrolls saws and jig saws are actually one of the safest types of shop tools. You are very unlikely to get anything more than a nasty cut with them. They don't take off fingers or anything like that. While that diy thing is pretty ghetto its not like its missing the safety gear of a real saw. They generally don't have any. I mean, what are you gonna do, put a guard on it?
How can I drill a small hole (a few millimeters) in a rock without causing the rock to splinter/shatter?
Specifically, I'm a Runefag and I want to make an amulet of fury (onyx amulet). I have some real onyx that I got on ebay. I have some twine stuff that works to make a necklace out of. I wrapped it around the onyx but I want to do better. I want to loop it through a hole in the onyx. If I use a drill to make a hole, will the onyx crack/splinter? And will it damage/dull the drill bit? Is there a better way?
>>913827 >legit worst answer ever and that google search fucking sucks m80. get gewd.
>>913823 OP onyx only has a Moh hardness of 7.0. Carbide is like 8.0 Clearly you need some sort of diamond bit, or carbide bit. the easiest way would be a dremel and one of those like 13 dollar diamond bits. drill half way on one side, flip over drill to the half way point on the other side. keep going for the hole size you want.

>>913815 That bearing looks way out of alignment. the blade guides and the bearing all appear to be on the one piece of metal, if the locknut is undone can that assembly be moved to realign it to the blade?
So a year or so ago I came to you guys and someone walked me through fixing my refrigerator. This time the thing is completely done for and I've got no choice but to buy a new one.
I can't believe I'm saying this but you guys are the only ones I really trust for real advice (reviews on home depot and Lowes smell of paid reviews and whatnot). So with this I ask....
Given the choice between a GE, Maytag, or Frigidaire which one would you guys choose? Keep in mind this will be closer to the bottom of the barrel as I had to replace a washer last week.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>913803 GE would be my guess from a business standpoint. No idea how Frigidaire is doing, but Maytag has lost its brand recognition with younger buyers, and surely sales suffer as a consequence, which means a cheaper, crappier product. GE is still huge, and can afford more in the way of R&D. FA may be owned by a bigger company.
Also, if you're rich, I recommend Traulsen. They're expensive as fuck, but I can personally guarantee you a life span of 20+ years in a home environment.
>>913803 They prolly come out of the same factory to be honest. I haven't been brand loyal for years, I simply set a price range I can do, make a list of "must have" features and a list of "would like" features, then see what I can find in the price range specified. If a "would like" is only going to push me out of my price range by 40 odd bucks I'll stretch, otherwise this system seems to do the job for me.
Also, are you totally fridgeless or is your old one working but seconds... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How would you go about building this kind of thing yourself, /diy/?
I'm (hopefully) going to be working in this field sometime in the distant future, but I'd like to mess around and try some things out now. Has anyone here tried to mess with passive/powered exoskeletons?
