I have very noisy neighbors and frequently have trouble sleeping. - No, talking to them did not help - Yes, they are drug and alcohol effected degenerates. - Yes, they are violent and dangerous. - No, I'm not going to go RAMBO and do anything that could get myself locked up. - No, the Police and council are not doing anything about it. - No, I can't move because I have a lease. - No, I can't stay at a friends house. - No, I can't afford to sleep at a motel. - No, I have no money to sue anyone.

Hi, I'm a weldor. I work in the steel industry located in America. In short, I fabricate the steel members required to build buildings, and then erect them. I wouldn't mind providing insight into my work, from the processes used to fabricate the steel to welding tips, ask away. I'll post some pics I took for content. This one is MIG welding a hand railing.
I'm pretty much convinced that I need to buy a 3d printer.
Before I get into this hobby, how much can I realistically expect to spend? I've been eyeballing that monoprice printer for $350 but I'm afraid that after I buy that I will realize that I just need to spend more on another printer for reasons.

I just did this test mount of a portable speaker I'm building. Mounted the power supply, battery charger and audio amplifier. Still need to build and program the DSP/DAC/front panel/wifi/FM/power management/battery monitor board, install the 22.2 V lithium battery and mount the controls.
>>949542 Not really /diy/ but this morning I walked around the lake next to the McMansion subdivision that I live in (with parents but I'm trying to save to buy my own land) and collected four 55 gallon bags of trash. Not one person thanked me, they just stared from their backyards or out their windows while I picked up trash behind THEIR houses. I hate living here...
Lets have a thread where we discuss gimmicky tools, for good or best.
>What tool are you ashamed of buying that looked cool at the time? >Ever bought a tool you thought would be great only to be worthless and/or stupid? >Ever bought a tool you thought would be worthless and/or stupid and turn out to be great? The more "features" the better

I don't really know where to put this thread so I decided this is the best board for it. My girlfriend bought a new apartment and now she wants to put heating in it. She has no gas or central heating available. By my estimate there are only two viable options : AC + 2 electric radiators or 2 ACs and one electric radiator. She has a 70m^2 apt with 3 rooms. Any more ideas or suggestions ?
>>961890 Well I'm not gonna argue about the metric system. Can you elaborate on that multi head minisplit ? >>961899 70m^2 is actually a medium sized apt in Europe. I do mean air conditioner. I am not familiar with American terminology.
It's a lovely hobby but doesn't have a lot of practical use. In a survival situation you'd be better off suited with basic survival knowledge rather than knowing how to make a stone hatched. Hut building might come in handy in a long term situation, but if you're in for the long run you'd be long past mud huts. As I said, it's a lovely hobby.
>>952822 In a survival situation you are better off knowing everything. You can turn a survival situation into a thriving situation a lot easier. Basic survival knowledge is easy and doesn't take very long to master.
But, taking a week out of a year to train for survival in anything from primitive technology to medical aid is never wasted and shouldn't be considered a hobby. However, spending a greater portion of your pastime doing these things would be considered a hobby.
>>953056 A week is a long time. I love going "survival camping" where legal to do so, bringing nothing but my clothes and a map/compass. Shits fun as fuck, but it isn't a super practical skill unless you regularly spend time way past the edges of civilization. If you know what you are doing, and you tell people where you are going, making yourself get found in a few days isn't difficult at all
So there's a recipe out there to make your own water based lube:
1 Part Xanthan Gum 6 Parts Vegetable 18 parts Water
It's pretty decent, I made a batch myself using 1/2 a teaspoon of Xanthan Gum in this little bottle. I did tweak the recipe a bit by adding more water because it was originally on the sticky side, unfortunately I didn't measure how much more I added. Has any body else done this? What changes did you make?
