Sup diy I have this rocket mass heater I built in an an off grid squat. We have to bring water in from an outdoor source and I'm wondering how I can harness hot water on tap from this without getting too fancy. I have a fair amount of copper coil. I'm thinking maybe a foot pump attached to the coil to pump water through the pipe which is wrapped around the barrel where it ends at the top and hot water will come out. Anyone have any experience doing this?
I'm moving to an apartment soon and I've been getting into woodworking lately. I've been thinking of a way to keep a small shop in an apartment without getting in trouble for the noise. What I came up with was making a small room using modules as pic related. A sheet of plywood, a couple sheets of neoprene, rock wool in a 2x4 frame, another couple of sheets of neoprene and a final sheet of plywood.
Am I on the right path here? Does neoprene absorb low frequencies as I'm expecting it to? And does rockwool keep higher frequencies... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

hello /diy/, so the usual chinese suppliers have this led clock that runs on 5V DC over USB, and can work off a 3V coin cell if not connected. how would i go about making a battery and charging system that would charge the battery from the USB when connected? i have some hobbyist electronics knowledge, and am pretty confident in my soldering, but this is somewhat above my knwledge level. google mostly sends me to some instructables from 2008 with crappy pics and drawings...
/DIY/ I need your help with my neighbor. This neighbor is causing a lot of ruckus and my current fence is not keeping him now his pooping dog out of my yard.
I am worried that this guy will start weeding my garden, and shingling my roof. I already have a gardener and a roofer. I do not want them to lose their jobs.
I am thinking about replacing the fence with a wall. The total wall will be just shy of 2000 miles in length. As you can imagine, the surface geology, bedrock, and groundwater conditions vary considerably along this length. I am going to need something... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello, I have a data recorder that my work uses on a weekly basis, and I need to convert the recording media (floppy) to ANYTHING more modern. USB drive, SD or CF preferred. Anyhow, what am I looking for to replace the floppy drive? I've googled floppy drive emulation board, floppy to USB, floppy to SD, etc. Nothing that plugs into a typical ide connector and converts to new all digital data.
>>951850 Also, it records SKU information, backs it up, and transfers info from scale to scale. Is it possible that this recorder just writes data like a computer, meaning any number of various ide adapters will work?
>>951853 Here's a picture of the absolutely retarded custom cable connector they designed for it. They called it modnet, it's just a long flat cat5 or cat6. Also has rs232, not really clear on how that works though.
Hey /diy/, excuse me for posting such a (probably) simple question. This is the first time I ever post on here because I think you might be able to tell me what's wrong. (I hope this thread won't get deleted, I'm a bit desperate about this desu)
So, I got a new bike and it came with a weird pump. I can't use my own pump on the ventile :/ In the picture you can see it, I just put the parts of it next to it to make its structure visible.
Well, the pump fits the ventile but I cannot use it. When I saw it first, I thought there would... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Over the years I've encountered a bunch of Phillips-head screws that had shallow heads or widely-spaced notches or both, and because of that couldn't really be turned by regular screwdrivers. The point goes in and just merrily spins around, grabbing hold of nothing, or worse, it almost grabs but doesn't, and starts taking little bits out of the notches. Sometimes it's not so much the pointiness of the screwdriver or bit as it is that it takes a while for the blades (I think that's the right term) to stick out enough to grab the screw head. Does anyone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I just got done rebuilding a '93 Virago XV535 motor for my friend, however I am at a standstill when it comes to torquing down the cylinders. The Haynes Manual lists the torque specs however I don't find them to be correct. The manual lists them as 8mm and 10mm nuts, but the nuts fit 14mm and 17mm sockets.
Is there something I am missing? Am I looking at the wrong specs? Yes I am in the XV535 section of the manual. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
