It's from an old light used in disco's. Eurolite Z-20 it says on the device.
It is an very old disco effect light, I bought it maybe 12 years ago and I wanna re-use it. It seems to work fine however this thing gets insanely fucking hot. And with hto I mean really really fucking hot.
I looked closely and it says OSRAM 120v 300watt.
Does this mean they are wired in series?
This thing must be over 600watt, it also has a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>908396 And now where are you, Father Eamonn Hunter? Working with pygmies in the South Seas. And where am I? On 4chan gloating about a crap idea that will fail once people start realising that throwing stuff at them is hilarious.
Hello everyone. I am in need of some good lighting to paint my miniatures and I'm sick of balancing this shitty little old CFL that I can't see poo with. So I got a big fucking 4 foot Fluorescent tube, 3250 lumens, 6400K for that real good brightness to hit every little detail.
Problem is I haven't a clue how to wire it and I'm scared of electrocuting myself. The hardware store guy told me it's simple, just wire the brown to brown and blue to blue in the fixture. He didn't mention earths though and I dunno where to stick the two wires in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Please wire the earth to the "swirly wire", the brown to the brown and the blue to the blue, in the connector where they're literally all right next to each other. Cut the blue wire an inch shorter, and the brown wire two inches shorter.
Attach the wire to the case with a cable tie so it can't be pulled out if you trip on it.
Stick the plastic circle inside the bit that holds plastic circles and twist it in.

I have an amplifier that i found and it's in pretty good condition. I changed some elements and made it work (sound-wise). The problem is that lights are not working. Voltage across the board for lights gives 0 volts. Maybe it transformer fault or maybe something on the board isn't right. Can you suggest me how can i check if it's the transformer or something else.
ALSO, I would like to ask if there is some way i can make lighting out of LED, using a second power source (12 volt converter or something else) and connecting LED, resistors... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>908280 Are you willing to try again? Honestly, that helmet looks like shit. Get a good pep file and apply bondo in thin layers, sand till everything is perfectly smooth and round. Fill little holes with spot putty, bondo, sand repeat till smooth. then sand some more. Then wet sand. Sanding is key. Spend time on this and you'll have a helmet you can be proud of. Not this turd.
Just measure out some distance from the bottom of the can and cut it. Stick the bottom of the can on helmet. You're done.
>>908298 >I really should make a new one you really should. I'm making one now. It's not hard. Put a little effort into it and it'll look great.
For the visor, buy a 1mm plastic sheet, heat and bend. I've seen builds where people have used heat guns. Google and try different options. to make the visor black you'll have to use some form of dye. I'm going to use tint film but I don't know how it's gonna turn out. We'll see.

>>908279 Lol. Usually people are transferring stuff from tape to files.
There are lots of ways of doing this.You will need a VCR of course. Depending on its age it will have various video inputs on the back. I would recommend using composite video.
One option is that you get a VGA to composite converter like this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/TV-RCA-Composite-S-Video-AV-In-To-PC-Mac-VGA-Lcd-Out-Converter-Adapter-Box-Black-/281762308111?hash=item419a57a00f:g:FN8AAOSw3ydVu0C~
And then get a 3.5mm jack to Left... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay /diy/, I need a big hand here. So I have a vintage lathe, that cannot be found on the internet, no manuals, no nothing.
One of the plain journal bearings on it has some spalling and it locks up the pulley shaft that runs through it. It ran fine with our new belt for about an hour, and now it barely makes it through ten minutes before locking up. We have a constant feed of oil, so it works okay when running, but only barely. It's starting to slow down, and once stopped, is extremely hard to start up. What are we messing up?
a fucked bearing is a fucked bearing, it never gets better. you don't keep running the damn thing, you idiot. go find a bigger lathe and turn up a new bearing and check your spindle for wear and runout.
>>908212 Gee, I wonder how they were able to solder it to the thing in the first place then. Cause you're the expert about what will and wont damage it. Maybe the heated the silver solder with the power of bushido.
To keep it brief, I'll just fire off my design specs and answer questions if there are any.
I want to build a cylindrical pedestal to hold a heavy spherical object.
>The pedestal will be three feet tall, and about 12 inches in diameter >The sphere on top will be an acrylic shell filled with water. It will weigh about 160 pounds when full! >The whole assemblage must be semi portable (I will have access to a truck with a lift gate, hand trucks, carts and so forth. The sphere will only be filled with water once the pedestal is in place). >Economy is important, but not the top priority.
Right now, a 12 inch PVC pipe seems like a quick, economical, lightweight way of getting a sturdy pedestal.
The question is, will a 12" PVC pipe bear the stress basically indefinitely? It's for a temporary installation, but if the pedestal cracked, it would be a complete disaster. Is it worth reinforcing it with bands of Sintra, or is the whole idea totally fucked?
>>908112 PVC sucks for structural purposes. What I would suggest is you look locally for any metals supply places, call them up and ask if they have anything suitable that they can cut to length for you. Sometimes they will have off cuts for cheap, or they may know some place else that might be helpful.
You can also ask around at welding supply shops if they know anywhere locally that would have this sort of thing.
If it was only 1/8" thick steel it would probably be okay (@12" across and with 160 lbs on it). 1/4" thick pipe that size would be ~80 lbs alone. 1/2" thick pipe that size is going to weigh a LOT. and kinda cost a lot too.
We used to use heavy gauge 2" waste PVC and a mesh sling to construct beach chairs before they were affordable. I have seen them withstand 250 lbs tourists flop down on them so depending on the construction you can do it.
While you have to build it, it would be cheap and quick but I wouldn't know the price in your area compared to steel.
Hey, does any one know a way of making home made crystals? I'm just looking for something small with simple instructions. Maybe something I can make with things I have around the house? Any ideas will help!
You need a string, a cup of water and a lot of spoons of sugar. Put the sugar into the water, mix it, put the string into the water, let one side of the string to get out of the water and wait a couple of days
A while ago I found this old old knife on my family's property. I'm trying to remove the rust (which is really thick) with lemon juice + salt and steel wool. I'm having some success, but is there any better way to do this? If anyone knows possibly the approximate age or manufacturer of the thing that'd be awesome.
