Hey /diy/, I have a broken wii sitting around collecting dust, and I thought, "hmm, maybe I can turn this into a pc!"

Trouble is, I know jack shit about the wii, it's hardware, or how to change the firmware and software.

My end goal is a wifi running a desktop os on the wii's hardware.

So, thoughts? Help? Anything????
Is this even possible?

I have a large pile of treetops, brush and shitty garden waste in my back yard. I need to disassemble it. the chainsaw doesnt cut it. it just makes the thin branches wobble and bend down to the ground and i cant run a chainsaw into the dirt. the ridiculous long handled branch pruners I have with the 1m long handles just bends around the 4cm wide branches.

the internet tells me that kaiser blades/brush axes/brush hooks are good for this sort of job. anyone have experience? I am considering just making a bundle of faggots and using them to make a hugelbed

I'm a custom woodworker and got a request to build a set of cornhole boards as an infinity mirror. My question is how would the hole look? There will be a gap of 3/4" between the mirrors and a hollow wooden disc will fit between the mirrors at the hole. This disc will also be wrapped in leds. Is this gonna look like shit?

This board is fine.
I reckon the disc will appear much like the circle in the center of pic related. The inside of the hole would obviously not have this effect, as there is no mirror on the inside of the hole. But the outside would.

I recently transplanted some guts from a radio controlled clock and stuck it in anohter clock that's in an awkward place and often gets forgotten. The ultimate goal is to stick a solar cell in the clock and just leave it to exist. Unfortunately, the clock I transplanted the guts into is all metal, so the radio controlled parts are having troubles pulling the signal. I read about passive resonant loop antennas that you could make and just stick in your attic, and field concentrator antennas that you put behind/near the clock itself to help the signal.

Is it supposed to glow by itself (not charged by light)? If so, it used a radioactive element of some sort (usually radium or tritium) and that has decayed. There is no way to "refresh" it, you'd have to apply new paint. And good luck getting that.

I was thinking that too.

And i have a Single size air mattress i use for camping that actually fits perfectly between the wheel wells.

Shouldve mentioned that the truck is a 2003 Tacoma with a 6' bed.

I have other camping gear i can use.

And the cabinets would have some of my tools stored in it along clothes, dry food stuffs, etc.

Uh, so the obvious question is if you're considering abandoning your current residence to live in your truck, why not just move closer to your job to avoid the commute?

A 6" bed in a Taco is really damn small. Your head and feet will touch both ends. Your picture looks like a full size chevy with a tall camper shell with a bit more room. Your truck, even without the raised bed will be like sleeping in a coffin. I wouldn't recommend a raised bed, but wheel well boxes are pretty easy to build, make 4 of them out of plywood and 1x1 bracing. They're 3...

So, I drill bowling balls. I have two sets of bits. All the way from like 5/16 to 1-1/2. All sizes in between. Today it appears that one of my 31/32 straight shank bits has expanded to 63/64. How do I fix that? I work for a University and have an amazing machinist. How can he fix this?

>>
>>964537
Grind it down or if you really wanted to get crazy I guess you could chuck it up in a lathe and turn it down.
Personally I would just buy a new one from MSc or grainger. They aren't that expensive anon
>>
>>964553

Bowler here. Not really. 1/32" difference is about the limit. Exception being the hole being just _barely_ too small, but even then it's not really going to matter whether you add another 1/64" or 1/32".

In any event, a lathe with a grinding attachment (or even just a simple jig and a bench grinder) could fix it, or rather, fix most of it. You'd still have to re-do the relief angles after it's brought down to size.

I hope you didn't pay more than $50. I don't know how to help you but I will say that you need to be extremely careful when trying to clean the pickups because if the magnets get messed up you're boned.

>>963410
If you got your two cents about you, you can take out the pickups and use a mix of warm soapy water and bleach to whiten them up again. you can also clean off the rusty screws and pickup ferrite with a bit of WD 40 to give it a shine.
The frets are gonna be all green by now so put a bit of WD 40 on soft rag and clean them off.
You should also give the neck a bit of wood oil since its probably dried to hell.
Ideally you would replace the frets on a guitar that was played for more than 2-3 years. Checks the 5way...

Id prefer something electric but Im having difficulty imaging how to get the power along either end on the foot side. For the head rest i could get the power over to either side with a worm gear or something, would there be a more effective way for the foot end

Is there anything i could scavenge for that could be used to raise and lower the head with a worm gear, i dont really have the intellectual resources to build a gear casing

So I'm doing a bathroom remodel, and have run into a snag with the wiring (shitty diagram very related).

Switch 2 must be GFCI protected as it is an exhaust fan and light directly over the shower. Switch 1 does not need such protection.

The problem arises when I turn on the switch for the fan, the GFCI trips.

This particular circuit also includes my garage.
Line and load sides are not mixed up.

GFCI receptacles have two different sets of terminals. One set will be marked line, this is where power from the panel is connected, and other other set is load. The load terminals will protect any outlets downstream that are connected to this.

For anything protected by the GFCI, the neutrals will need to connect to the load neutral terminal. Same as for the hots as well, they need to be connected to the load hot terminal. But in the case of the fan (if it needs to be protected), wire the hot terminal to one of...

Your diagram shows the GFCI is switched off the first switch? That's really all I can think of, otherwise your diagram looks fine to me.
