I just started making applejack. Rate my recipe, let me know if I did anything wrong.
2 gallons apple cider, 4 twelve oz cans of 100% apple juice concentrate, 6 pounds of sugar, and Red Star Cote des Blancs yeast. I only used a half packet of yeast, I'll add the other half once fermentation slows down and I taste test.
The cans of concentrate take 3 cans each to reconstitute, so it's 192 oz total of 100% apple juice, or 1.5 gallons.
I used a balloon with a few holes poked in it with a needle as an airlock and its already starting to inflate :)
I wanted to use Pasteur Blanc yeast instead of Cote des Blancs because it can ferment to dryness much faster, and withstand higher alcohol content... but my grandma had to tell the dude behind the counter I was making cider so he gave me the recommended cider yeast :/
My parents are artists, and whenever I enter their workshop, the smell of the paint, varnish, etc. is just unbearable. I started putting on a respirator whenever I enter their workshop, since I know that these vapors may be bad for your health.
Am I being paranoid? Or am I right about putting on the mask? My parents started teasing me about doing this, but I feel that there's nothing silly about not wanting to breathe potentially harmful vapors.
>>957974 Most of the varnishes release nasty vapors, that's why many of them have "use in a ventilated area" in their labels. Although they aren't too harmful they could cause problems on the long run, so yea, make them install a ventilation system in their workshop if they don't have windows, sure it wasn't part of their plan, but youre the big guy there.
>>957974 I'm also sensitive about the smell of solvents. I'm worse than you, though. Whenever my GF puts on nail polish I need to be in a different room with a closed door between us. It just makes me immensely uncomfortable.
If they're doing spray painting, or otherwise distribute solvents so you can assume there is some in the air, you can wear a respirator without feeling like a pussy.
They probably tease you because they're used to the smell. It's hard to evaluate what the level of potential harm can be, since there's a long way between an open can of turpentine and using a rag dipped in white spirit as a face mask.
I just replaced almost the whole ignition in this car. it still wont run. checked dizzy, fine. replaced dizzy cap and button, corroded as fuck. replaced ignition module. replaced spark plugs. replaced coil. sparks fine. took out fuel pump relay and shorted pins, fuel pump is golden. hear fuel running when turning the key to ignition. removed air filter. crank for 30 seconds, wont run.
this car started two days ago then died. then ran again after cooling down for two hours. then the next day to drive it from the curb to the driveway, RACQ(AAA)... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>957941 yah, straight six. cylinder 1 is at the front of the engine. dizzy cap is marked with corresponding cylinder numbers.
thing is, it was doing this before I removed the distributor. the instructions for installation are to run diagnostic mode and rotate the distributor until it fires. I dont have a timing light atm. but will rig one up for final tune. I alligned the distributor shaft when reinstalling it using lines I marked on the engine and distributor before removing it. so it should be more or less 10oBTC +-2... Comment too long.

So I've got a little project I'm working on involving a Raspberry Pi 2, Raspbian Jessie, and Tinyboard (Futuba clone made by some faggot). I'm stuck on the part where you make the Pi function as an access point. Every guide I read on how to make it operate this way goes through a step where you assign the Pi a static IP address and they mention making changes to /etc/network/interfaces which is the old way of assigning static IP addresses. Debian Jessie now requires you to assign the static IP in /etc/dhcpcd.conf and I'm not particularly linux-savvy right... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I recently acquired 35 acres of land in southern Colorado butted up against national park land, amidst wilderness. End game I would like to have all my land enclosed, trying to decide on fencing. I don't know too much about fencing. Deer and elk are prevalent there as well as black bears. I tried looking up methods to keep bears away online, but I guess these tips were all for people who's answer to these problems aren't just putting up a big fucking fence. I'll have a garden, fish, honey, and all sorts of shit bears want in there because bears know... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a heated garage that I keep at 50 for my vehicles and dogs, but between that and heating my house, I'm disgusted with the electric bill. I've been interested in making a solar heater to heat the garage in the winter, has anyone on /diy/ made one before? How much heat do they put out? Seems like most designs are pretty similar but do you guys have favorites?
>>955177 That's true, but am I right in thinking that the pipeline would have be 4-5 feet underground? I have ample yard space, but that much digging would be quite the project... Quite a bit more invasive than something top-soil but I would love to someday have one of these setups.
Anybody here from the following states I'm about to mention? I would like to buy at least 20 acres within a National Forest that I can build a tiny house or cabin on and be left alone other than traveling to a close by town/city to buy food, get my mail from a post office, etc.
>Tennessee Pros & Cons + Close to family. They could easily drive down for a weekend trip any time they wanted. + No state income tax and rated the cheapest state to live in. - Not a lot to hunt besides deer. - Horrible people. I've driven... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

5 cecond read: Is there a way to make these core2duo's useful again?
Story of my life: To overcome my being a burden on society I part-time as anykey-engineer in a particular educational institution in a land where east coast is actually closer to Japan. Being state-operated this organization is bureaucratic as fuck. And the clerks aren't willing to go through the trouble of tracking parts of "those weird beeping techy things" separately, let alone bothering with executing purchases of an odd spare components for this and that.

>>960663 All in ll I've got for this: Approximately a dozen of cpu's, majority is Core2Duo 6x series with lga 755 socket. About 10 gb of ram in 256 mb ddr2 sticks. Five or six workable motherboards. A bunch of power units for 500W, those are on a limit though, as they can still be plugged in users' computers. A solder iron and ain't afraid to use it. 100 maybe 200 bucks to spend on toys.

Top of the shelf C2D overclocked to 3.5GHz would be great for web browsing and document editing. Should be able to decode 1080p Blu-ray rips as well. Manufacturing your own mobo is impossible.

I made the mistake of buying this poo in the loo invention and I can't figure out how you're supposed to use it. The dovetail for the indicator is at the top but the piece at the top doesn't go any further down. Also if you take out that knurled pin at the side all pressure goes off the dovetail.
Is that rod smaller at the top or something? Hard to tell from that pic. If not, I can't figure out why it won't move further down, is it just too snug for your likely (given this is 4chan) limp noodle arms to manipulate properly? Sorry but it seems to be pretty strait forward to me.
So I got tasked with repairing this POS electrical oven and it seems like the only problem is a blown fuse. With a microscope I could see that it is a sefuse sf214e. I don't know where I can get one without ordering online, so is it okay to bypass this ? Or are there any similar products I might be able to find "offline" ?
Personally I would probably just bypass it until the package arrives, if you can't live without it for a while. This naturally means it won't blow when the temp gets too high though, so keep an eye on it while it's in use...
I'm guessing I don't need to emphasize how dangerous it could be
