I've been working since Friday (with a significant break yesterday) and I'm nearing the point where I'm ready to paint. I've used 70lbs of joint compound already and I'm feeling like this is too much as I haven't even done the ceiling yet. How badly did I screw up?
On a side topic, at what point do you say the job is too big for you and hire someone. I'm starting to doubt my ability here.
Haha. (1) Why didn't you just lay one SINGLE sheet of drywall instead of throwing shit at the wall, ya idiot? On a side note, i've been guilty of that offense and have learned (1) the hard way as well.
I am working on a idea for some remote controlled equipment via phone
Initially I thought about data over sms but then found DTMF solutions as pictured
I am looking to do some kind of remote home automation like adjusting thermostat or opening garage door via text or call
I also located a carrier called Truphone that provides global phone coverage through their own network and allows free incoming calls inside the US and UK I verified with their rep at the call center that you pay upfront for the sim card ($20) and some prepaid minutes (the minimum) and...

Text messages are cheaper than voice calls, and you'd need to be making voice calls to transmit DTMF.
Cell phones don't use DTMF. If you hit a button while talking the other end doesn't hear DTMF like with land line phones. You'll have to create an app or external device that plays DTMF into the cell phone voice connection.
Voice calls through a cell network are digitized and compressed. Your DTMF could look like background noise and get filtered out.
>>1018691 Does it have to have a phone on the other end? You could get a raspberry pi and control stuff over SSH from yhe internet. Instead of using a cellphone, you might use a GSM module, which is a cellphone in a handy hackable format.
It might be best to use a GSM module and send it SMS messages to control what you want to do. For best results use encrypted text messages
I have a couple of 6sn7 tubes lying around. What can I build? I originally had plans for a headphone amp but I would have ended up dropping way too much money for something I don't need. I'd like to build up a nice portfolio for applying for my EE masters.
>>1018577 your 6sn7 is a medium gain dual triode which would be fine for a line level first stage of an audio amp. You would still need some beam power tubes for the output stage. as for the transformers edcor sells very reasonably priced output transformers. https://www.edcorusa.com/xse10-50-8k of course you have to match the output tubes with the impedance of the transformer.
You will need a power transformer which edcor sells those as well. You would need a plate voltage of less than 450v using a modern rectifier... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Sup pol got a 1970 Apache camper to sleep in while I gut and rebuild this house.
I'm about to refit it with hard panels (instead of canvas) from a 1972 model.
Currently shown in compressed mode.
Anyway, it's not as fallout as a canned ham style camper trailer or mini airstream looking thing, but I want to decorate it post apocalyptic style. Any suggestions? I can't find jack shit for inspiration on google images because trailer also means "video preview" and the results are useless reviews of fo4
>>1018451 I tried magnets on the screen, but it didnt do anything useful. To give more detail, the thick lines on the side are waving around really fast. when i plug something into it, the input video takes the shape of the odd shape in the middle of the screen
I have breathing issue in bedroom with door shut. have feelings of suffocation and lightedness constantly then I walk out of room for 5mins and start to feel normal.
I asked this here months ago and anons screamed'carbon monoxide detector' I got that and it didn't pick up anything. I also throughly cleaned bedroom removed tons of old clothes. and still experience. my bedroom closet has water pipes in there but I sealed it u. not sure if it's relevant
Is someone going to be living or dying based on this? If that's the case, seriously, just buy whatever is needed.
If you're just fucking around, the 12V battery you posted is a sealed lead-acid battery, commonly referred to as an AGM. They are heavy but reliable and hold a good amount of power for their volume. If you know the ampere-hour requirements, you can pretty easily match up a 12V AGM battery. They make them in all sorts of sizes/capicities.
NiMH would not be that great, they are actually a pretty crappy battery. Low charge holding and they deplete... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/, I'm trying to figure out if it's a bad idea for me to build/use a homemade rotary tool like in pic related, safety wise. I'm planning on using it to cut mdf boards, and pvc piping, nothing particularly strong. Assuming that I use gloves, safety glasses, do you think this is a bad idea, or am I overthinking this?
>>1017855 That on e pictured is very low power and low RPM. It would be quite safe to build and use. Operation would be slow. If you decide to use an AC/DC wall unit, make sure it has at least a 2 amp rating. When a motor stalls it eats up a massive amount of power (sometimes peaking at 90+amps for a normal battery-powered drill for instance). The motor used in that one most likely won't exceed 2-3 amps when stalled.
However, a high speed, high power unit using a blender motor requires more experience and skill to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
hey /diy/, turns out my housemates are nosey fucks and like to go through my stuff while i'm not home. my door can't even be locked from outside. thing is, my door handle seems to be fatter than any handle i've seen that has a proper lock, though admittedly i haven't exhausted my search quite yet. the question is, is it possible to change the handle to one with a proper lock without having to saw the wood or leave open gaps at the sides? how likely is it to find one with the same size?
from my experience air purifiers don't really get rid of the smell, although give it a shot, they can be expensive but even if it doesn't work you will just end up with cleaner air and feels good to breath
