(a) it sets off a fire alarm (b) it sets your apartment on fire
- pick one. Its Bongoland, its a two year old flat - it will be there to fulfill some bullshit new safety reg, it probably isnt actually wired to anything.
Speaking of safety reqgulations, tho: >mains powered smoke alarm -nope.jpg - may alos be mains connected, but must function on battery only. Which is not entirely unsensible, elctrical fire starts, mains trips, you still asleep, etc.
This is my 3rd summer in my home but my first time gardening. The first year I had to save up for a roof, then the second year I had to refill my savings after the roof. So this year I made it a mission to do the garden.
I decided to do a 4x4 and an 8x4. It's a little cumbersome how I built them so next year I am going to do a massive one and combine them.
In the larger one Ive got peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and bushbeans. And in the smaller one I've got 2 more tomato plants, beets, and onions.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
hi there guys i have some land i inherited in the Yukon near the Yukon Alaska border it's in my moms name but i'm able to do whatever i want with it,we went up there about 4 years ago and here are some pics of it.
my grandfather used to have a gas station up there back in the 60's but i can't find any part of that actual building.
my question is this, how vital is it that i get it surveyed or can i rely on gov't maps and a handheld gps unit to make my own fence around the land and after wards how hard would it be to mill my own lumber from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1013282 I don't think surveys are really necessary but you should definitely have all your existing facilities located. Get a measuring wheel and map you property lines. You should also do a good clean out of all the property before building. Don't build a rigid garage, quansets are all you'll need if you want to just store an rv. Driveways/ approaches are easy but definitely rent a bobcat or mini-excavator and install a culvert.
A room in the house i just moved into has a window that looks into the laundry room. I'd like to put a picture behind it but can't decide how to light it. I'm thinking i could either make a 2 inch mdf box and throw some leds inside or put leds around the inside of the window and just glue the picture to a panel and stick that up. The opening is 48 x 48 so it would be large photo paper.
Matte acrylic with polished edges. Shine light in from one edge - whole damn thing glows. Its how LCD backlights work. (There are some diffusing foils and powerful wizardry, but in principle it is that simple.)
I want to create some sort of sticker stencil to lay on the surface I am painting, and use a blade to cut out the individual sections to paint. But the letters have to much room for error. Any suggestions? Pic related
So I bought a cheap screen door and installed it. Stupidly I didn't check if there was enough clearance for the existing door handle and sure enough there isn't. Any ideas how I can get around this? Thought of adding an architrave but that will only lessen the gap at best
As long as you know the value of two of these, you can calculate the third.
Therefore, to run a mains speaker on a car battery. In the USA mains voltage is 110-120v AC. So at 12v you'll need ten times the amps to convert it from 120v to 12v. If in the UK Mains voltage is 240v, therefore the amperage will be twenty times as high, in order to run at 12v.

Finally got around to working on my surplus gun box a bit. Removed all the inserts and sanded down with 80 grit to remove some of the roughness. Needs some chiseling on the bottom to smooth it out a bit, then a lot more sanding.
Should I leave those muzzle rests in on the back or take them out? I'm thinking about leaving them in as an homage to what the box used to store.
Also, dark stain or just teak oil?
For those who haven't seen the past threads, basically I buy surplus army crates and turn them into minibars.
I don't know if this is the right board or not for this, but I could really use some opinions
The neighbors behind my aunt's house recently added to the fence to heighten it, there's no alley, so for privacy I guess.
They paid for it, and had came to let my aunt know about it and blah blah blah.
Anyway, the fence looks like shit and there's a big mess left over of sand-like concrete and piles of dead torn old vines. We don't care about the vines, but there's still quite a mess in our backyard now.

>>1013815 >>1013817 Is the wall right on the property line or is it on their side of the property line? If the latter there is generally nothing you can do. Look into 'good neighbor fence'. Sometimes the local codes require them, most times they don't. Since its their fence they can make it look like whatever they want. You can either put up your own cover or live with it.
If its right on the property line, IE some of it is on your side, some of it is on... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Recently discovered i have a moisture issue in a corner of my basement. Not nearly as bad as the one in the pic as what little mold / mildew there was was contained to the back of the drywall and the 2x4's studs and baseboard (the guy who built it did not use treated wood for the stuff making contact with the floor... i know)
Now i have kept an eye on it and it takes a serious fucking storm to get moisture / water there. BUT its still an issue and i cant re-finish the room until i fix it for good.
The wall has some stair steping hairline cracks but as far... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
There is a gutter downspout that dumps water near that corner, and 2 more in the back of the house the dump it near there.
That side of the house is opposite the side that gets heavy rains but with 3 down spouts there thats still a lot of water weight put on the corner. If i redirect the flow of water im hoping that is enough to solve the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just kidding, not gonna go through all that unboxing bullshit on a board this slow. But it's a free $200 fluke multimeter that they gave me for nothing. If anyone's interested I'll tell the story of how y'all can get your own.
>>1013437 the fug - collect your urgent medical supplies in confort, safety and convenience with a-fucking-literally 5 minute car journey from airport to clinic..
..or choose to duct-tape-n-cardbord-box load them into a random autonomous flying object, assuming the weathers nice, and hope for the fucking best - go on, live a little dangerously! - its only critical medical supplies, after all.
Wife ordered some new wicker furniture for our deck. Got a set that includes a table like pic related. Didn't notice the glass top when getting it apparently. Unlike pic related, it doesn't slot into the indentation, just kind of floats on top of the rounded edges (it's almost exactly as wide as the table). Only thing included was a 1 inch bumper pad with four little nubs. Doesn't look like it'd really do much - maybe cut apart the single nubs could buffer the edges but since it was packaged seperate from the table, I'm really thinking they sent us the wrong size top.
Any ideas how to secure this thing so it doesn't fly off and shatter at the first bump or stiff breeze?
I'm replacing my kitchen faucet but the new faucet's cold supply line is too short to reach the shutoff valve. On the old faucet the cold was longer than the hot which made it fit just right. This new one has the hot line longer than the cold as in pic related. So is it possible to switch these out in the actually faucet/handle or do I need to get an extension?
So I have a ton of succulents, most of which I've had for 2+ years without any issue. I picked pic related up a few months ago at a market (it looked healthy at the time) but within the last week it's completely deflated. I'm assuming based on my googling that it's rotting inside.
Can I still propagate this to try and save it sort of? Or is it completely toast? I've never had any other issues with other cacti or succulents I have, so I'm not sure what caused it to become like this.
>>1012475 Remembering back to days of a few Botany classes, at this point, it may be best to try to salvage it by replanting it's own roots in a different pot with proper growth-inducing soil.. Of course they would have to be healthy roots and not dead.
I forgot the technical name for this process but it should work if you upkeep well.
I don't know what it's called, or the brand name but the tool is a metal shear. it is hydraulically operated and uses a foot pedal. I need to adjust the foot pedal and possibly addjust the blade. Please help me. The whole blade does not come down at once, it works off a pivot point like GIANT scissors. The closer to the fulcrum the more power...any idea the proper name of this tool and any useful links? please help.
>>1012286 Goldie search hydraulic plate shear or hydraulic sheet metal shear turns up quite a few results. As far as maintenance and blade adjustments I would look to manufacturer for guidance as different machines will have different specs for blade spacing. For example one of our machines would not cut thin metal for shit unless shims were installed behind the blade to get it close to the other blade. Another machine had an adjuster based on the thickness of the material you were cutting, and a guide for where the blade should be set.
I'm planning on making a PVC nerf rifle/cannon to use with the oversized Nerf mega darts. Now, there's plenty of plans out there for combustion style potato guns, or CO2 powered cannons, but I can't seem to find any solid plans for what I want. I just want to fire this little dart with as much power as reliably possible, without needing to do things like recharge a separate tank, or refill some sort of fuel. Any ideas?
Here's a shitty example of the design I'm leaning toward right now. Pump on the bottom to pressurize the larger tank up top, with a valve just past the tank to release the air. It obviously needs reinforced and made in a way that's comfortable to hold, but that's the basic functional plan I have in mind. Anything majorly wrong with it, or any better way to do it?
Get a Schrader valve stem from napa. Use a bike bump with a cam-locking hose so you can either leave the pump attached or drop it when you have an air compressor handy
Don't forget to use primer with your cement. Also google around for the magic PVC gun ratio so you know exactly how long to make your barrel in relation to your tank, and the correct diameter for the tank and valve. A stubby barrel will result in the payload leaving before the majority of the air has time to do work on it
I just bought a 1969 CT90 that's been neglected for a few years, It's not too far from running but I want to do more with it than just that. I want restore it. Here's the problem though, I know virtually nothing about painting or metal finishing. It's rusted in a few spots and the chrome bits are a little rusted. I can clean the rust up but I'm not sure how to prepare a surface for painting or how to paint for that matter. The chrome really has me worried though, chroming kits online are really expensive and have some really nasty chemicals, so I've... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1006817 I thought about it, never got around to it. It's too much hassle desu, you can get a nice metal case for $25. You wouldn't save any money building it yourself unless you had scrap metal laying around.
Does anybody have any sewing experience? I enjoy basic handsewing and for the past few months I've been focusing on sewing plush toys. I designed a basic one which came out quite well but now I'm trying to design a Teepo plush from the Tales of Xillia game.
Pic related is a prototype out of scrap fabric/denim, my third complete redesign. The geometric shapes and curves are proving to be an absolute nightmare to get right, real slow trial-and-error shit. I'm normally fine with that but it's taking so long and constant failures are killing my mood. I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>993783 I have very little experience with this but I found that pointy areas that taper off tend to get distorted the most. It's hard to explain but you have to cut the fabric more round that you think it should be. Even then it's easy to get unexpected results.
The only thing I have ever sewed is this pig toy but I think it came out well enough. I did add legs and proper eyes but don't have a photo since I gave it away.
this is a mexican (well, at least it is very famous in mexico) alcoholic drink, in english it would mean something like "crazy water", i would recomend it if you want to do a party and you would not like to waste a lot of money.

I have this amber TTL monitor that seems to be defective-not working, has no burn in at all so must be low hour
I only get power LED when turning ona nd heaters but nothing else, now at first I thought uit was just waiting for signal but after trying multiple 8bit Hercules video-cards I am starting to suspect the monitor might have a fault in it. I have no other monitor to verify that indeed it could be the monitor but am very sure it is
The monitor has 3 IC a TDA2593,TDA1170N and a 74LS136W which I suspect might be the problem, but how can I verify that indeed... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Remove the oven racks from the oven and any other obstacles that might bother you while you’re cleaning the oven. Heat up your oven to a moderately high temperature so that the sticky grease turns into ash. After a couple of minutes, turn off your oven. Sprinkle the baking soda on the different over spilled areas of the oven, afterward, spray water on the sprinkled baking soda and get it nicely moist and get it to a level where it’s converted into a paste. Let it sit overnight in order to let the baking soda eat through the sticky grimes.clean your oven On the next day grab a cleaning cloth and start wiping the baking soda from the oven (Hint: to know that you’re on the right track, check the cleaning cloth and its color should be brownish, which are the dirty, sticky grease you just cleaned off from the oven) Use a little amount of vinegar (about two tablespoons) mixed with water to eliminate the dried off pasty baking soda remaining since vinegar reacts with baking soda and foams up which can be easily wiped off with a cloth! Do a final wipe with a dry cloth and replace the racks back and the remaining tools back into the oven, and there you have! A nice clean oven!
You can, ifixit and instructables have guides but it usually takes some fine solder work Having the same thoughts about my nexus 5 after a Chinese cable raped the jack tree point flive is Chinese for 3.7 I guess
