So Is there anyone who know how to work a arduino?

Project
Solar tracking rig for maximum sunlight using a arduino.


1. Fully automated sun tracking.
2. I must have 2 axil control.
3. Abel to hold 10 panels.
4. High winds must be taken into account and turn accordingly.
5. Low budget.

So there is my project (Personal project for own home. No power grid connection. Solar only) that im busy with. Point 2 and 3 I can do. Im studying mechanical engineering part time right now. So the rig and strength is not a problem for me to build.

Listen bro, I can't help you with this but I just want to share something I've learned through the years.

You're going for the holy grail right now. Don't. First build a platform that can be turned and skewed with a simple panel. Fine tune the shit out of that, it needs to be absolutely flawless. You'll need an Arduino, some motors and a little pit of engineering.

Once that is all done and is working like a champ, once that is done.. don't you fucking dare build a sensor that tracks the sun.. the sun follows the exact same path every...

You'd have a much easier life by programming it to move according to a timer.

Sensors introduce complication and a damaged sensor can screw over your entire array.
>bird shits over LDR
Another complication you'd encounter is cloud chasing. Your array would get disturbed by clouds since they'd change the values of your LDRs leading to basically your array moving constantly during the day, burning away the little electricity you have.
Now to solve such an issue you'd have to introduce mechanics for dealing with...

Best way to insulate an air duct is just wrap it with foam or other types of insulation, but tobehonest just wrap it with cardboard with some duct tape will help a lot since it is not a huge issue anyway

I do know about it. I have done gas, gtaw, smaw, gmaw, Flux core, etc etc welding of all kinds and gas sucks. It's good for one thing and that is cast iron and honestly tig/gtaw welding is better.

A stick and tig machine can do titanium, stainless, magnesium, aluminum, mild steels, white metals, brass, bronze, copper, etc etc.

Gas cannot do those thing. Gas is good for heating metal and cutting. It's a poor welding medium compared to any Arc welder.

I got this in my workshop/old maids room

I assume they are fuses? They have 30A500v rating on them.

My workshop is only 220v with 2 double outlets on the same line and 2 ceiling lights and that is all the electrical in there.

I want to move/add some more double outlets on the other side of the room and I am not too familiar with fuse breakers. Is there anything I should consider, other than opening the circuit, before beginning?

Its hard to tell what these were used for without you tracing the wires. It might be that each of those outlets has its own fuse (protip, look into breakers).

>>1007597

The outlets are on the same line as previously mentioned. Wires are surface mounted on the wall

>>1007587
They are wire fuses, if you pull them out and look at the reverse side you will see two terminals with fuse wire across them, the wire thickness determines the value. You will have one for lights and the other for sockets, assuming UK that should be 6A and 13A respectfully. If you plan on using it as a workshop, would get it all replaced with a new consumer unit using rcbo's, cabling and sockets. Those old fuses are notorious for being slow to blow or having the wrong wire installed. You can find modern RCD drop...

A broad-spectrum broadleaf herbicide will kill almost anything with broad leafs (surprise) - you don't need to do much specialization. Won't touch crabgrass through, like in the first picture. That you need to get before it germinates, i.e. next year.

Many large scale RC planes of that size are nonstructural vacuform components over a balsa core structure, or foam with a heat-shrink covering.

Some still are, but most use more modern materials.

have you actually seen this done before? Reflow oven temperature zones are static, so ramping a toaster oven doesn't really compare. You would need to invent your own oven curves since the ramp times wouldn't be similar at all.

If you are serious about doing it then thermocouple each board and use that for the feedback loop directly. You'll be able to tell when you hit thermal equilibrium to end your preheating zone. I don't know how critical the TAL is, since your oven probably wont be...

What about this one, then?
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000H5W50Q/

The comments report that it comes with a "standard 1/4" adapter" but I'm not sure if that means that it threads onto the water supply or not.

I'm not familiar with plumbing at all.

I need more room!

Thinking about moving some books and stuff into plastic containers out in an external storage shed.

This is actually my dad's house I am sorting out. He's too old and I'm too busying trying to get myself together to actually build one like a cousin's husband did. Beautiful work he did himself, but it was expensive and time consuming.

What would you suggest for a simple shed. Thinking $500-$1500 range.

i have a few Rubbermaid Roughneck boxes outside, and not a drop of water has gotten inside in 3 years time. still, i sometimes use a dollar store tarp to make sure they dont collect water over top, and use a string to wick away any water that does. a thrift-store tent would also work if you patch any holes.

Bullshit. Without a seal, water will get in.

All I can tell you is that Lowes/HD sell displays for dirt cheap sometimes. If you do put those containers in a shed, buy some insulation tape from Lowe's/HD and make a seal around it before you close it up, and put some moisture absorbing shit in there. Arm and hammer, silica, whatever. I still regret leaving mine in the garage.

the plastic ones work decently, but i wouldn't put books in a shed unless i didn't care about them at all, and at that point i'd either sell them or get rid of them. . .


if you're going to do that anyways, get a solar powered vent fan to push out all the hot air that'll ruin the books over time,

go get a plastic drop cloth, and use some black silicone to hold it up no water will make it in, and get any kind of screen and use more of the black stuff to hold it in place over the vents to hell keep flying bugs out

and put borax...

Got this all at a garage sale for $65
Did I do good /diy/?

Never really done anything with tubes, but each box was $20 and there has to be atleast 50 in each box, and looking a couple up ranged from $5-$20ea on ebay. They had atleast 10 more boxes exactly the same, and 20 more radios of different types ranging from $25-$45. Should I go back for more tomorrow? Maybe buy in bulk and strike a deal?

4 MB,
Alright /diy/nosaurs!
I just inherited some property and I'm looking to clean up and build something in the backyard because I'm bored, but I can't figure out what to make.
I was hoping you guys could give me suggestions.
I was thinking of a shaded area over what will one day be the garden, but that's all I've really got so far. (California central valley heat is brutal)
Any suggestions? Preferably to do with wood since that's what I'm at least adept at, but really I'm up for anything. I was also thinking about a Japanese smoker...

are firepits allowed in your area?

get rid of that garden fence and make a bitchin' firepit.

Restoring and maintaining that grass will be a bitch. Would local codes allow you to dig it up and replace it with some kind of stone or sand? You could start a trend in both style and water conservation.
