Not a shitpost, first ever thread. I decided to start growing some chilies in a small space in my home. I have many varied chilies in my time, but never grown. From anyone with more experience, would this be a fair start-up material list?
Cool. I plan to convert this space into a plant room, going to line the room with tinfoil and insulation, seal it off at the door'floor etc, the door will have a fresh air intake vent, struggling for out-vent ideas as the room is in the middle of my house with obvious way to vent out the heat, I don't want tubes roping about, gotta be discreet, chilies arn't welcome by me, the people hate chilies what can I say.

you need to bust out the sheetrock on the other side too, it's moldy and fucked.
quick fix so you can shower until you get all the materials in: silicone a plastic sheet (something like tyvek) to the studs, tiles and bath; poke holes in it for the taps and shower head. you can peel it all off easy when it's time to do the job properly.
I have virtually no tools of my own aside from an old cordless drill, and I'm looking to pick up some basic metalworking powertools. E.g., rotary tool, drill press, small arc welder, hand grinder, etc. My problem is that I'm on a college budget, and I'm not sure where to start looking for good tools that aren't going to set me back too much.
I'm actually going to a flea market today hoping to find something, but if anyone has any better ideas than that I would very much appreciate it.
The majority of stuff in that price range is all coming out the sane hung low Charlie factory, re-branded with a few minor changes here and there; you're not going to really benefit from one or the other any more than you would buying a belt sander and clamping it upside down to your work bench.
You might also be better off with a strip sander rather than a wide flat bed belt sander for handle shaping.
>>960719 A flat belt is simply that, flat. If you want to sand long flat surfaces or joints you would use that.
Vertical discs help when forming outer radius curves and beveled edges.
Strip Sanders are very much like bobbin Sanders in theory but only allow work on an open edge. They will match the curvature of your cut easier and you can use flat or curved belt supports to help you sand your work piece.
Example, if you want to sand a flat top of a knife handle with a beveled edge on both sides the disc... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
quick question anyone know how to check capacitors? already looked into it and found out about esr meters >pic related but from there on everything just looks so old its like some abandoned corner of the web or chinese any suggestions on a good esr meter or a better method to test if a caps failing or not.
esr is just a characteristic of capacitors, so the number by itself tells you nothing unless you have documented ratings (or brand new caps) to compare with. typically neither is available to you, unless you bought the caps yourself from a reputable supplier.
as for testing ESR, there are youtube videos showing how to do it with a scope and function generator, if you have those.
>>960520 >>960522 You might have better luck over on >>>/po/ You know, Papercraft and Origami. Hell, someone over there might even have the Pepakura files already. sage because wrong board. Almost /diy/ but not quite. I sincerely believe you'll enjoy your visit to /po/. So many activities!
>>960522 These masks are known as plague doctor masks and everybody knows how to make em. There are quintillions of pepakura files for all of them. Please do a google search the next time you want to shit up the board
>>960535 Why are you bullying him? This is pretty much a DIY topic. He didn't ask specifically for paper patterns. Heck, he maybe wanting to make it out of welded steel plates, dude. Of course not but chillax
Anyhow I'd recommend looking at... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey I dunno if this is the right board, but anyway. I have a straight razor I want to restore (pic related), however I haven't been able to sharpen it to be shave ready. I can get it sharp with the 4k grit but when I go to 8k it loses all the sharpness. What is the adequate technique for doing it? Also how can I make the razor shiny as a mirror and get rid of most stains?
