Hey /diy/, i want to hang 50 of my old yugioh cards from the bedroom ceiling. I haven't been around too many arts & crafts to know what would be best for this project. I was hoping you guys could help?
If possible I'd rather not put holes in the ceiling, or risk tearing the cards too much. I also have a fan in the room. Is there something i can to use to weigh them down, so they don't fly all over the place?
But without access to major machinery or excessively dangerous chemicals, would anyone have an inkling on how to "hollow out" a stump or similar piece of wood so the inside could then be burned to look like this? I was toying with the idea of those "stump out" products but am afraid that if they worked, in any fashion, the structural integrity would be far too compromised.
>>962548 >But without access to major machinery You don't need machinery to cut wood. Buy an axe and start hackin. Once you get a bunch out, hack the other side. Remove the rest with a sawzall if you have one, otherwise it will be a long process with a large knife or something. Either way it's simple, you then take it outside, carefully wet only the outside of the log with a rag until it is soaked evenly, fill it with charcoal, burn for as long as you want, then get to sanding a flat surface.
This is pretty neat. This guy collects examples of DIY shit that Cubans made due to the collapsed economy. More out of the lack of industry rather than lack of personal funds.
TV antennas made from metal cafeteria style trays were commonplace during this time. Another neat example is using grapefruit rinds as a substitute for beef steak. He said they remove the acidity then fry it in garlic, onions ect. so it tastes and feels similar to meat.
for living in a van, would I be better off buying car batteries or a few back up power rechargeable batteries. Someone suggested before getting golf cart batteries as they're cheaper and would meet my reqs. I want to be able to run a big flat screen LED tv, a high performance PC, a PS4, a microwave, and a fridge at the same time but rarely.

heres what to do. Take each of these vital-for-virtual-existence necessities above, add it to the phrase "average power consumption of .." - Google it, this will give you a figure in watts. Add all these watts up, then, come back with this figure - this is how much electricity you need from your batteries. Plural.
Heres a clue, before you start tho - its too... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a new piece of tech in my home- an AT&T home cell phone. I plug in a handset and it operates as a cell. Saves me 40/month. I want to boost the reception. I assume I could replace the antenna with something bigger and it would give me more bars. It says it uses 850/1900mhz, and the cell boosters on amazon are 200 bucks. As long as I had the right attachment/connection, couldn't I use some sort of wifi modem antenna that costs 20 bucks?
Follow the same rules as positioning a wifi router. Place it as high up as you can. Put it in an open area as far away from large metal objects as you can. Run a cable into the attic if you need to. I find it hard to believe that you'll have range issues at those low frequencies.
I bought some dumbbells a couple of years back from a bootsale. Each one is packed full of weights and I never could work out how to separate it and remove some disks. Its like its all one piece. Any ideas?
Bollocks. That'll be why they were so cheap then. Can't believe anyone would make such heavy dumbbells. I do have an angle grinder. Do you think it's worth maybe salvaging the weights and buying new handles?
The weather is finally clearing up and the yard/garage/estate sales are starting back up again. So its the time again! Haul Thread!
You know the rules: No new stuff, no foreign stuff, don't post unless you have a picture.
The following pictures are about a months worth of stuff. A little here, a little there and then a ton of stuff yesterday (Saturday March 19th). The Craftsman carpenters box (the big one) set me back a princely sum of $10. It includes the tray and the original wooden support for the lid. I got the smaller Craftsman at the same sale for $6,...

>>965009 Next up is this beautiful Craftsman top box that the previous owner painted tomato red with a rattle can. On a related note, anyone know how to get spray paint off of decent paint without ruining the decent paint under it?
The large clamps are J.H. Williams, the smaller ones are Cincinnati Tool Co. Paid a buck each. Dremel 100 ($3), Craftsman 'Yankee' screwdriver ($4), Stanley Yankee ($2), Stanley push drill ($2), Supreme Versamatic (2 for about $5) and a Supreme Versamate ($2), mortising machine chisel...

chkdsk is destructive, should not be using on 15%+ corrupted drive, just going to make tings worse.
As long as drive still recongised (appears in exploerer, etc), file recovery program (Easus Recovery myself) would be a better idea. Yoos chkdsk /f only for odd minor file errors, and preferably not even then.
Weigh up how much you really need the files as well, 60GB of mostly corrupted data probably gonna stay mostly corrupted, no matter which drive you transfer it to - if films or some BS you can reload, forget em.
>>964668 well, considering there were only a handful of damaged files on the other parts of the drive, I don't think all of the ~60GB left would be corrupted as well....I did managed to get a few files that were in the same folder(s) before the rest disappeared
So trying to wire my rc toys slide switch to a newer one that fits a mount on it. Problem is, it's a 3 stage switch 6 pin, so it has 3 selection settings as apposed to the old on/off selection setting 6 pin to the left you see here. I got 3 main cables, the negatives, the control board positive and the battery positive on the far right. Since I'm trying to rewire it onto the 3 selector, how would I go about doing so so that it's still an on/off switch. I'm still a novice at requiring as I blew up a battery in my face yesterday. Got a multi meter for that now.
>>965590 >quickly without leaving unpleasant smells That would be aerobic bacteria, which have never, and will never exist in a septic system. Intentionally trying to destroy the bacteria in your septic system is not a good decision.
