I am looking to start a simple tool set for my son. My dad kinda did the same for me and when i moved out he gave it to me. It was great to have.
Just looking for ideas for it. Mostly right now its extras of things i have. I have 2 sets of many things and the things i have 3 of the 3rd item im setting aside for him. Hes young now but when the time comes the "set" will be nice and probably bigger then what i got.
How difficult would it be to /diy/ a small house similar to an apartment floor plan?
I bought some land that I plan to build my dream home on in 5-10 years. Should I build a smaller house for now or just set up a manufactured home on it? I considered a tiny house or shipping container home but it just wouldn't be enough space, considering I work at home. It would be miserable.
it may be problematic, getting planning permission for a standalone with one entry/exit, and basically no windows (fire reg, etc.) - depends, 3-world country (murica, etc.) - maybe not give a fuck tho.
meanwhile irl, go dig up a floorplan suitbable for a standlone, be a better idea. But, you have to go thro a few minor inconveniences, even for tiny houses, like, planning, roof, heating, etc. - building a dwarve standalone aint really gonna save you much, desu, be as well building something to a scale actually usable. And resellable, if needed, etc.
I'm looking to buy a torque wrench to change tires on my car, but it looks like they sell wrenches, adapters, and sockets separately. Anybody have any advice about how to buy all three components such that they're compatible?
>>909039 Im going to be honest, no real need to torque your tires. Get a 1/2 in breaker bar, and a corresponding 1/2 in socket to fit on the end. Tighten the lug nuts hard as you can with one hand, do them in a star pattern.
It will be over torqued if you look at specs, but won't hurt it. Remember that the gorillas at the shop use air wrenches to zip the lug nuts on twice as tight as you could ever do it by hand.
Measure your bolts with calipers if you have them. Compatible? As long as they are the same Imperial or Metric measurement you'll be fine (1/2 or 3/8 most common).
Your vehicle should have a tire change kit so take the tire wrench to the store to match sizes if you don't have calipers. Ensure there are no special locking nuts that require a special bit to remove. Also, If you get a torque wrench ALWAYS RESET IT TO ZERO WHEN PUTTING IT AWAY. It'll fuck up your spring and the calibration.
I built a few "growbuckets". They're just buckets full of water, nutrient and air stones in the bottom. The plants were started in a "fogponics" bucket which is working perfectly with perfect white roots, but when I place them in the "deep water culture" bucket the roots rot and the plants die. I think the water doesn't have enough oxygen, so I'm thinking... is it possible to use an air pump to create some kind of water spray in the water buckets? Kinda like an aerosol can. That's one of the options I'm considering. The... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/. Any advice on how to clean up some of my memorabilia? I was shocked to check on it and see the state it was in. I'm fairly sure that it's salt corrosion. (The white patches). Not sure what the metal is though.
Sup, /diy/. I made pic related, it's a jar with olive oil and a standard kerosene lamp wick that's safe to burn inside and is non-flammable by nature of the olive oil.
But I was wondering, I've seen people with Poi that change the color of their flames using chemicals such as strontium salt (for red color), and I was curious as to whether or not you can achieve this with a lamp like this while still maintaining the same level of health safety. I don't want to suffocate myself, obviously, so I would like to know if this is possible for indoor use.

>>908732 The "right" way to do it would be faced (better) or unfaced (cheaper) fiberglass or rockwool batts. Make sure your measurements are good and buy batts that fit your stud width/wall height/thickness. Faced batts are easy because the kraft paper/aluminized paper facing is usually wider than the insulation so you can lay them into the walls and staple up the edges alone or with little help. Then panel as desired. I would at least panel the area near the wood stove and add a further layer of something heatproof,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
cellulose might rot rockwool is currently best for insulation if you're doing it and you're unexperienced, find some earth wool from Knauf for example, which won't fuck up your health while putting them on
aerated/insulated concrete can also be an option, if you find a smart way to cast it
Sup /diy/ suggest me a cheap pump for a dive helmet i'm making. Preferably running on 12 volts, but i can make 120v work. I need something that is oilless or i need to make a carbon filter in line with the air hose. Inb4 >urll die feg xDdd
So I'm visiting my parents for the weekend. They own a vacant house a couple blocks away that I'm trying use as a chill spot for when I can't stand to be around them. Seeing as it's November, it's fucking freezing in there. I turned on the big red switch on the wall (the emergency shut on/off switch for the oil burner) and turned up all the thermostats, but it doesn't seem to be making any difference. I went down into the basement and, as I'm completely unfamiliar with anything appliance-related, I couldn't make sense of the contraption,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Why don't you call and ask your dad how to turn the heater on? He might not have bought any gas this year, or have done other winterization things and you could fuck everything up if you don't know what you're doing.
Also, I don't have cell data on my phone, and there's no wifi at the vacant house so I can only monitor this thread from my parent's house. I've got a car though so I can drive over and try out any suggestions you might have fairly quickly.
what are you ask? just don't bridge negative and right side of batter while cutting. Better build/buy a dedicated charging circuit like TP4056 and even more importantly a dedicated discharge control because these things are boned when you over discharge them.
Im doing a live edge black walnut coffee table. I've got a 74"x20"x2" slab that still needs to dry (pic related). Is there a way to tell how long I should let it dry for? A month? A year? I literally have no bearing on this sort of thing.
Share your projects here with us! I just made a lock for my desk drawer. I don't really need it but it pissed me off that it didnt have a lock. I wasn't really sure how to do it but ended up drilling a single hole through both the desk and the drawer where i insert a hex key to stop the drawer from moving, and I mounted some metal brackets on top of it with a padlock. Had to do some filing but it took me about 30 minutes. Pic related
