The necessities. Saws, Hammers, Nails. And some powertools.

So you have a tablesaw, drill press, circular saw, band saw, router, and electric sander? Those are my necessities as far as power tools... Clearly I need more details on what you actually have so I can give proper advice.. Got a mitersaw for cutting 90 degrees?

How difficult would it be to make these? Mostly I'm wondering where I would get the wood, how I'd cut it and the cost of stain and polish.

Those look like logs. You can get them at the log store - aka forest. You cut them with chainsaws and the costs of finishes depends on where you live.

767 KB,
Saw a thread about 6 months back where somebody went into details about setting up battery powered routers in public places that connected users to nearby free wifi and uploaded any data that passed through them to a google drive or something similar.

The routers just acted as a middle man between the users and the free wifi so neither side would know anything was wrong. It looked like an expensive hobby since each one of these devices was made to be disposable (an abandoned backpack filled with wires would obviously get a lot of attention once it was found) but it seemed...

Unfortunately some of us don't have a choice about using free wifi if we want to go online. I can't even afford a $5 data plan for my mobile so McDonalds, college and the community workshop are the only places I get to use the internet.

Who /bikemechanic/ here?
I'm trying to replace the bearings in my Mavic hub. These bad boys (pic) are going to set me back about $20-30 since they're such a specific product, but I have a feeling they're identical to a generic 6001 bearing cartridge. Measurements for both are 12x28x8. Am I failing to account for something here?

>>970465

Bearing sizes are standardized. If they're specified to be the same, they're the same.

The only differences are in the materials and tolerances (which directly translates to quality). Truth be told, I can't see much advantage over a generic in this situation. Bicycle bearings are neither under particularly high load nor do they have to spin at very high speeds. I can't imagine there's any noticeable difference between some random, no-name Chinese shit and some >$9000 ABEC-69 wank...

Hard to say. LOT of variables there.

If you can find tech specs for them (manufacturers and suppliers list them up front, but some bike shop almost certainly won't), compare the dynamic and static load ratings. If they're similar, I would expect them to have similar longevity; load ratings are tied directly to tolerance and the quality of metallurgy.

If I had to hazard a guess, though, I'd say "probably".

Unless you're a fatass riding with no suspension on a rocky trail, anyway.

For very similar money you could get a real grinder and for not much more you could get one with a good enough tool rest your could just use that. You just need to git gud.

I already have a grinder, so I'm game to do it by hand if it's not too hard. Is there some kind of jig you use, or can it be done freehand?

Oh yeah, and will this work on carbide bits? I was under the impression that they have only a thin coating of hard stuff and once they're gone, they're gone.

Here's an interior shot with the front opened up. The majority of the hardware looks like a metal 'Y', where the bottom of the 'Y' is where the handle or knob would be and it spreads out and holds it in place. Reminds me of the fastening mech on a manilla envelope. I've never seen something that didn't utilize bolts so I'm fairly confident it's old.

sup /diy/ maybe you can help me solve this. my truck is broke down out of town and I've got a friend with a trailer who thinks we can go get it but the problem is that the truck (A) doesn't run, so I'm not sure how to get it onto trailer (B) as it doesn't have a winch to pull it on with. I'm not certain what kind of trailer we're dealing with exactly, but I hope to find out and update this post. I would assume that the trailer has ramps since it is for hauling cars, but the problem is still how to maneuver the truck onto the trailer. I thought about...

Oh and I've thought of the option of having another truck (that drives) physically push my truck up onto the trailer, but I have no idea whether or not that would be an option. I could always call the place where my truck is sitting and ask if they have a beater truck we could use for that, but I prefer to keep that as a last resort.
>>
I think we also have the option of a flatbed wrecker truck that the facility has, perhaps we could use that somehow. I know these trucks have to have a way to get vehicles onto the flatbeds without being able to pull right up to them, or I would assume so anyway. Maybe they have chains that go out behind for pulling vehicles off the side of the road, for instance

How to get ridiculously razor sharp knives in no time:

Step one: Cut out 8" rounds out of MDF. I used a Jasper circle cutting jig, then drilled out the center hole with a 5/8" forstner bit. Use the appropriate sized bit for the arbor size of your grinder ofc. The Jasper jig makes flawless circles which will reduce the need for additional truing. I splashed boiled linseed oil on the disks, which probably isn't necessary.

Then you mount the wheel in the bench grinder. True the wheel by using a spindle gouge while it's spinning on the grinder.

I left this wheel square for general honing of knives and chisels.

I turned a radius onto the second wheel to sharpen inside curved knives and the inside of gouges and other oddly sharped cutting tools.

My house was recently built/reformed. It received lots of Ethernet cables (inside the walls), but only one is working! I suspect the man hired to make this cable management did not finished its work. How can I discover what is the problem, and solve (end the work)?

I tested by plugging one side on a router (I tried 2 routers), and the other on my netbook, and then proceeded to pinging Google.

Check the attic for a bundle of cables that sends the signal to each room. They should be plugged into a splitter of some sort. The guy most likely didn't leave a splitter or installed one or he didn't plug them all into it. I'll post a picture in a bit

Try drawing it. A lot. Then choose the best one, then try to make it better. Choose the best one again. Then keep going, until you find an almost satisfying (but not quite) drawing, and present that to your art teacher.

Conversely you can just pass a Photoshop filter for drawifying it, then trace that shit.

I have a feeling you will ask about the second option.
