I'm looking to build an AR-10 as a defensive sporting rifle. By that I mean I'm looking to build an AR-10 that can be used for hunting and range shooting but is able to be carried while camping and used to kill off attacking predators like bears. The thing is I don't know much about firearms and I'm not sure I can afford the trigger I want ( pic related ) if I buy a completed AR-10. Does /DIY/ know anything about building a firearm?
Right now I don't have ANY parts. I do plan on buying vid related and ( same as pic related ) would... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I milled out a piece of scrap plastic and drilled a hole to press in a shaft. The mill is still crooked so everything on this block is crooked, but it doesn't matter as long as the camera is looking close to center and you use a short fixed focal length.
>>969512 You know wind turbines can only ever be 50% efficient because they have to move air out of the way once its passed the blades. It stands to reason that a fan should then be 150% efficient so I'd say its probably not going to get much better than that
I mean, I certainly admire the level of skill on display but between the name and the pretentious "everything I need to know about filmmaking I learned from Vimeo and community college" cinematography and narration I find this pretty insufferable.
And also what the fuck is he doing using a back-and-forth stroke with a Japanese saw
>>969419 you can buy a fogger on ebay or aliexpress. and an LED light for like 50$ or use fluorescents. you can line an old cupboard with alfoil and seal in the light gaps with door edge insulation foam strips.
Hi /diy/ Does anyone knows how to change the chuck of a Makita Cordless Drill? After 3 years the drill bits slip no matter how hard I tight them... So it's time to change the chuck but no idea and I don't want to break any gear trying it in the wrong way. Can you please help? The model is BHP541
Hello /diy/, I want to repair my old desk plate. Despite, it's not a high quality desk, it was a long time companion and never disappointed me. I think the plate is made of pressboard.
1) I plan to sand the surface with fine paper to get rid of the filth and the paint. 2) I want to fill the scratches and holes with putty. 3) I want to paint the plate in blue with acrylic lacquer. Is there a paint, which is better fitting for this work? 4) I want to instal a metallic edge protection over the broken one. I prefer a metallic one for asthetics, but... Comment too long.

Hey guys, my grandma died recently, and she was a damn-fine DIY-er. She left me the contents of her shop, but since I'm in college I couldn't take the big stuff like table saws and whatnot. I got a bunch of woodworking hand tools though. I want to make medieval style carvings and stuff, but the 2x4s I had laying around were too hard and I was afraid I might damage the tools (since I was having to hammer gouged in even though they were only at like a 10 degree angle).
Does anyone know what kind of wood is good for carving? I'm also tempted to go hack down a tree with the hatchet she gave me and do it entirely from scratch. I live in Florida; are there any good native woods?
>>968914 Your chisels are probably dull. You shouldn't have trouble cutting into anything softer than ebony with even a basic chisel.
If the chisel does not have a metal cap on the end of its handle do NOT hit it with anything but your hand or a special hammer (traditionally wooden or leather, modern rubber or plastic). Many carving chisels are not meant to be stuck and you will fuck them up if you do. If the chisels have long handles then they are likely lathe chisels and not meant for carving. Paring chisels are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>968925 I will tomorrow, if the thread is still here in the morning. I'm used to slow boards like /tg/ and /his/ so hopefully it'll be here. And yeah. I did fuck them up though; I spent probably 4 hours hammering pretty hard into what I can only assume is cedar or pine (2x4's) to make my mom a tray. Luckily I have a whetstone and I only used the wide-angle (easy-to-sharpen) gouges and chisels just in case. I did fuck one up really badly as I hammered it into a screw I didn't know was in the wood, so it's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So we got a new fridge a while ago and we got a compression nut with the thing you put inside of the tube to connect the water supply to the fridge.
Well it looks like the water line tube doesn't fit into the compression nut? Is there a way to make the nut biggger? Both the fridge and the nut are supposed to be 1/4" in size so does this mean that the water line is too big for the fridge? Do we have to replace the water line entirely?
