workshop.jpg
7 KB,
I love to woodwork. Been making my own furniture. I live in an apartment and I can't make noise. I've been using grandparents small backyard for powertools. But I know they don't like it, but let me and it's a drive there. Was thinking about renting a workshop with two other relatives. $400 each, only two blocks away from my apartment.
My apartment is too cramped with tools.

I don't feel safe leaving my large table saw, miter saw, lathe, drill press outdoors at my grandparents. I hate to leave my projects outside, overnight, after applying a coat of oil or varnish.

Anyone have any experience renting workshops to store tools and work on projects? Pic related, something similar to this.

Seems pretty expensive. I know a guy that rents out a storage unit and does all his work there for less that a hundred a month. I'm sure most places wouldn't let you do that depending on where you live but that's what I would try if I needed space.
>>
>>965554
It kind of is. I live in CA, everything tends to be more out here. This shop is actually one of the cheapest I could find.
I was thinking of a storage place idea like you said. The four I looked at had specific rules prohibiting using it as a place to work.
>>
occasionally but not everywhere you can ask if they have or know of units with power outlets that can be used as workshops. usually independent storage units

I was given a tin of left over paint by a family member that I used to paint the inside of a small closet for towels and bedding, it looks nice.

Afterwards though among the dried up paint on the tin I noticed it was for wood and metal, should this be fine?

Yes.

I forgot to mention this isn't a stand alone closet, it is part of the wall therefore made out of plaster, no wood in sight.

Cheers for the reply though.

Paint is paint, manufacturers just modify some of the ingredients and properties to make it more suitable for the element they're being applied on. Even if the paint is not 100℅ recommended for that job, drywall will take almost any kind of paint as long as it is applied properly.

Hey there, /diy/nosaurs.

My mom works in a pediatric doctor's office and the doctor knows that I tinker a little bit. He gave me this old centrifuge that has just been collecting dust for years, along with the tubes that go inside.

What are some neat things that I can make or synthesize using a centrifuge?

My previous supplier vanished and I'm having a hard time finding a source with good volume to price ratio... could be potassium/sodium/ammonium nitrate.

I will keep trying to buy, but my diy ideas so far are:

2) Fermenting urine with straw for a few months

Anyone got tips?

Yeah, fertilizers are good sources of nitrate salts.

Good luck with your vanning.

Are you buying in bulk? Because i know ammoniium nitrate is in instant cold packs excluding walmart and stump remover is potassium nitrate you could also piss on the dirt in the same area for a year or so and make your own potassium nitrate

Alright so I need ideas. I'm an all-around faggot and don't know jack about shit.

I have a 5 month old son, and I am starting a precious metal / coin collection for him.

I want a safe, secure place to store everything, but I also love the idea of all these coins and gold and shit just being kept in an old wooden chest, for aesthetic reasons.

Any ideas how to combine those two things? This collection might end up taking a considerable amount of space, especially if silver gets involved. I'll be throwing about $1000/year at it.

Make a "frame" for the exterior; weld some angle steel along the edges, with fortification ribs in the middle. Then cut sections of hardwood and secure them to the "inside" of the box to the angle steel frame. Use hasps and hinges for hardware.

Supplemental post

These "treasure chests" can be accessed by someone with an axe or sledge. Faster and quieter with other tools like a grinder, drill, or saw. It shouldn't be for security of your PM collection, but it will look really cool and keep your kid out of it.

There is a 0.81 acre lot in the area I'd like to live. It appears to be just a lot that was never developed with houses surrounding it. I tried to google for some information, but it just gave me dead sites and clickbait sites. Does anyone have any experience with this? Like how much would I cost to get sewer/water/gas/ect to hook up?

.81 acres? Hot damn!
That's actually a lot for a city lot. I have no clue about your question, but all the lines are right the fuck there, so you shouldn't have too much of a problem. Call your water/sewage Dept and see if they even charge. Electric may be free as they are a private-ish company.
>>
Depends Op, you need to contact the City for a servicing report on the lot, and also contact your local electric/gas provider to determine what's existing.

The price could range from $0 if there is already service stubs to the lot, to $60000 if you need new services with a utility cut through a roadway

Some neighborhood plans call for empty lots as green space.

The shower in my master bathroom is being wonky. When we turn the shower on there's still a good bit of water coming out of the spout. I'm assuming that there's a connection somewhere that's not sealing up completely, but I'm not sure where to look.

I attempted to take off the middle handle that is the diverter. After digging through the soap scum I got the hex screw out, but was unable to get the handle off. I wasn't sure where to go from there, so I just left it be since I didn't want to break anything. How do I get it off? Do I need...

Uhg, is that pic your spout setup?
The fix is a $0.10 neoprene washer.
But you'll need to turn the water mains off and disassemble the spouts to replace the washers.

Tools:
non-marring pump pliers
flat blade screw turn
teflon tape
>>
>>965029
Yeah sounds like the seals are just old, went hard and broke up, won't need to buy a whole new set of taps, just the o-rings/washers.

As for getting it off, not sure about those taps but have you tried unscrewing the the base that connects with the tile, in my experience that usually holds the whole assemble to the wall.

As the other anon has mentioned, turn the water off first unless you like getting drenched.

Also clean your fucking tiles man, Jesus.
>>
>>965157
Theres a hex screw near the base. I got that off.and anf tried to skip it off but it wouldnt budge.

Yeah that crap keeps coming back. It was never there until this started so I told my wife a few months ago don't bother until I fix it and ive kept putting it off.

If you're just starting out, it'd be a lot better to buy a cheap set and figure out what kind of picks you like, so you can make picks you'll use.

With how cheap it is to buy a high quality set, I would advise against creating your own pick set, unless you need a specific pick. Otherwise here is a good info pick on the process.
tl;dr: Get some sheet metal of your choice and simply file it down to size and shape.

I remember my first attempt at a sword was hilariously bad. I overworked it and left it in the water trough after cooling for some reason. THEN, I decided to paint it in order to hide the rust with tempra, making it look flaky. I still have it somewhere. My second attempt was much better, though I simply reworked high quality steel into something else and didn't leave it in water that time.

So I'm circuit bending a simple sfx toy, sure enough the resistor in [pic related] can be swapped out for a pot to modify the pitch. The lower ohms, the higher pitch. Naturally, I then figure higher ohms means lower pitch: nope. It's like the further I get away from 330k ohms (or whatever value the resistor on the board actually is) the higher the pitch, regardless if ohms increase or decrease. What gives, /diy/?

Shit, nevermind I figured it out: didn't bother to physically remove the old resistor so any new ones I tested were always in parallel with the old one.
