>>964499 I did it. It looks like shit and it was hard as fuck to do. I payed 300 for new carpet and padding in 2 15x15 rooms plus the stretching tool, blades and knives. The untrained eye cannot tell I did it, but I see it every day. When I redo it when the carpet is worn, I will pay someone. Also, the cheapest carpet is absolute SHIT at home depot. 7 months and it's already flat and worn in the walkways.
Hi, /diy/. I kind of need a solution, but its still related to diy topic/subject. Basically I'm going to make one of those little furnaces to melt aluminum and copper. I basically have everything already, only thing I dont have is a crucible.
Basically I cant find a steel fire extinguisher thats 3" in diameter. I have a crucible in the mail, but its gonna be a few weeks.
One of my friends said you could use plaster for a mold, but it would be harder to transfer heat but it would still work. I kind of need help finding out what to use for temporary... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I have a tv that is bugging out. It was changing tv inputs and channels on its own. My stupid idea was that it was the physical buttons and the pcb that they were connected to in the hopes that I would still be able to use the remote to control it without the previous problem. Well I suppose the the ir controller ran through the board I took out because the remote doesn't work. Obviously I have no idea what I am doing and need help getting this tv up and running. Please help fellas.
Ir receiver is fine i think. I just disconnected from where the actual controller or it runs through the controller. Im thinking of buying a replacement of it, magnavox brand. I really dont know a lot and was hoping for some input. The physical button board is where i guess the signal is put through to the main board but id be okay with a bypass method to just make it one hdmi and a hack to turn the thing on but i might be asking for a lot.
>>963964 3M masking tape the painters stuff is my favorite. the problem i think you had, was you let the color coat dry before you removed the tape and it caused peeling. when you removed the tape? gotta remove it when it's still wet, wait like 10ish minutes after your final color to remove it.
Also, never buy color in a can that already has gloss in it. or satin. always get matte colors if you can. Matte lays smoother, doesn't orange peel, and dries faster. Plus the clearcoat is suppose to make paint look shiny, not the color
Krylons crystal clear acrylic I think would work best on bicycle frames comes in gloss, satin, and matte.. if you want something that's chemically stable, Spar urethane, its pricey tho. dries slow AF too, but is dry in 24 hours, sand able in 48. and cure to max hardness in 1 week.
as opposed to enamel clear out of a can that takes like 14 months to fkin' harden where your finger nail doesn't make a dent no more.
also self etching primer is a must of aluminum. so much better at actually stinking to it then the automotive spray primer.
Op here, thx for comment. You have the point with the masking tape. I had some problems with orange peel but i am glad with finished result. I will keep in mind your stuff, and try the matte collors next time.
Image have a little process of making the or the bike.
Any ideas of the powder coat diy stuff, still I neen big as hell oven...
So i have this little room that is used as a archive, but i doesn't have any light, and i have to use the flash of the smartphone so i can search for what i'm looking for, so i want to build a motion sensor light, i was thinking in a circuit that i could easily control the time that the light is on, and i was thinking of connecting some type of LED light.
Like >>962933 said, you're probably better off buying one already made. But then you wouldn't be on /diy.
PIR sensors are fairly cheap. If you want bare minimalism, use one of those and a 555 to add your timer function. An easier route for control though would be an Arduino that controls a relay for the light switch.
Hello, can someone share your favourite shops from china? I would like to buy some modules in one parcel, but cant find good seller with good price/fast shipping. I prefer sellers from aliexpress, so far best seller was YLKS and A+A+A+ but they sell stuff for bigger price
For aliexpress, just go for listings with diamond rated sellers and check the negative reviews that aren't about not receiving the item (which is not indicative of the actual product, only the mail RNG they got or their impatience). Never had an issue with a high rating seller. And always expect quality to be lower than listed (even if it's sometimes ends up being much higher than what you can locally at 10x the price).
Mind you it will most likely take over a month to arrive, so plan accordingly.
Thing to note is that a lot of those shops are actually... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
For starters, excuse my noobish questions and excuse my ignorance. Found this tut, looks awesome, I have all the parts (for the most part) excuse the pun, but have a question in regards to the schematic. I need a laser driver that can output a constant current to the diode, according to the tut the best constant current is 1.25V. The recommendation is to utilize a LM317 with a resistor in order to output ~1.25V/R. Couldn't I just skip the LM317 and the resistor and stick in a buck converter to regulate the voltage? Like this guy:
Also, anyone have any tips on creating a master-switch (on/off) that involves opening/closing a box? When the box is closed, the switch is on, when the box is open, the switch is off. I'd like to implement this so that when I do complete the laser engraver, the laser will only turn on if the box is closed, so you know, no one burns out their retina. Thank you in advance.
>>962658 >the best constant current is 1.25V Current is measured in amperes. Your circuit is a constant current source like you said and you can't replace it with a 1.25V constant voltage supply. It uses 1.25V as an internal reference voltage for setting the output current.
Dunno about that buck converter. It might be suitable when used in constant current mode, or not.
a few weeks ago an old man gave me a 60 inch plasma tv for free because he was throwing it away due to the screen shutting off after 20 minutes of use. I opened it up today, plugged it in and could hear a humming/buzzing noise coming from the item circled in the picture.
I dont have an electrical tester, but i do have a soldering iron, the only repair ive ever done was change some capacitors in my other tv. the parts for this tv range from 30 dollars to 200 dollars and all seem to be used. any repair thoughts before ordering replacement...

I have been making mason jars with highlights for some time now - I really like pattern design and applying my patterns to glassware is definitely "my thing". However, none of my work looks as good as it could do because the glass i typically use is either clear, or a single (usually too bright) colour. Ideally I would paint the glass to get whatever effect i'm going for with the piece. Then I could make something like what's in the OP.
Does anyone know what sort of paint would do this? Im worried that if i splash out on expensive... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Thin some translucent (clear) acrylic paint, or get the lightest medium (as in base) acrylic and tint to your needs. set up a lazy susan turntable jawn and use a decent sized brush. multiple coats or multiple colors. think nail polish fo yo gos toes
>>964614 that was defo done with either rattle cans or an airbrush. you can tell its just some basic distressing on the markings/cracks with a foam brush. looks to me like, primer, a light orange base color, the redish/copper like color, then foam brushed in the distressed marks. as far as the color goes, you're just gonna have to find your favorite paint supplier and look for a color close to it. maybe contact the maker of it VIA email and just asked what they used...
What's the cheapest way to make a watertight wood barrel?
I was thinking straight walls would be much easier than curved ones. Less profiling to do on the planks.
And what about hoops? Making metal hoops seems like it would be too much work and too pricey, probably cheaper to buy some than get the tools to make some. What could you use as a substitute? This barrel has wooden hoops but I don't think I'd trust that. What about hoops made from manila rope? Tightened with a wench and whatever knot is best?
idunno if it's plausible to cooper yourself a barrel. from what i understand it takes a lot of skill/practice and just the right tools and experience. it's long tradition that took centuries to perfect, idunno if you'll be able to just make it up as you go along anon
>>963337 Rip a 12 degree along the side of board. Chop up board into 12 to 16 parts. Lay boards out on tape - sticky side up. Apply glue to joints and roll your lay up into a circle. Cut out appropriatey sized bottom and glue to your cylinder. Apply resin to inside.
