>>948538 From the outside (dry side), put a piece of PVC pipe against your liner so you can see the outline on the inside. Put a smaller diameter short piece of PVC pipe against the liner from the inside, so the OD of the inner piece aligns with the ID of the larger, outside piece. Hammer the the thinner piece into the thicker piece for a press fit. Cut a hole in the liner inside the pipe. Cut the short piece, paint it, use some sealant/glue. Whatever to make it pretty and durable.
>>949827 Any old book Go to a library Find an old book. The oldest they have. But not too old. Maybe early 90s, if it has tubes and valves instead of silicon it's too old. Unless you want to learn that stuff. New things are terrible ignore all of them.
Theoretically, is it possible to make a radio transmitter with an Arduino? Can't the current variations required to create radio waves be created by programming the Arduino appropriately? (Use the sine function and shit.)
>>950704 You can. Not sure anyone has written libraries for it yet, but you could do it.
Of course, you'll still have to make an antenna, and it's going to be a very low power transmitter unless you send the output through an amp first. If you're going to need an external amp to make it worthwhile, why not just assemble the whole thing without an arduino?
Hi /diy/, a badly beaten Asus eeePC 904HD netbook has recently got in my hands. It has ceased functioning after ~5 years of working in hands that didn't care about computers due to having some liquid (probably water) spilt on it. However, it still seemed to boot up after being damaged (just asked to set settings in BIOS), but I disassembled it and used 90% isopropyl alcohol on it. Now it's dead. What did I do wrong? Can soaking it in IPA90% help?

>>949852 Pressure cutoff? Do small residential refridge even have that? I work on dishwashers, I don't know. If it isn't working it probably developed a leak over time and won't start because a pressure sensor is telling the board that there's no gas. My father in law's refridge died in a similar fashion, except I found the main board fried. Everything worked except the compressor wouldn't run.
I'm getting a good deal on this house because it used to be my parents. It's not great looking and it's from 1959.
I have questions as a first time homeowner looking to make it both more comfortable and more valuable: What style would you say it is? What porch/deck design would suit it best? I like craftsman style but don't know if it would be appropriate. What paintjob do you think would work or should I just leave the brick and put some primary color trim up? Any other ideas that leap out at you?
yours is a pretty standard mid-century modern prairie style split level. without more pics of where you want the deck, it's impossible to suggest a design. with an older home you have some decisions to make...how is the plumbing? the roof?.how old is the HVAC system? how well is it insulated?are you going to keep the existing landscaping or do something different? etc., etc.....the biggest issue being how much are you looking to spend right off the bat?..
If your parents sold you a house at or below market cost don't worry about the valuable aspect unless you're just trying to flip it. Keep the styling in line with your local area and similar to what your neighbors have. If your house stands out too much it can lower the value.
I assume this is the front of the house, you might like a paver-brick walkway instead of that poured concrete.
Make the windows pop with a contrasting color to the brown brick and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I just saw a youtube vid of something like this. I used to use the plug in chargers and the booster packs that were 12lbs; essentially a small car battery with 2 alligator clips.
I'm curious as to how these tiny things can jump a car 20 times or whatever they're claiming. They're all about $100 a piece, but in reality Its $20 of batteries, connections, and a plastic housing. Seems like a perfect project for /diy/ to make on the cheap.
Most of them use a single soft prismatic LIPO cell. I doubt you'd get enough amps to jump a car out of 18650's unless you get the high output kind used in tools and such, but those only have a ~2ah capacity.
My dental chair already has a recline via a "momentary on/off/momentary on" rocker footswitch. I'd prefer to add a momentary handswitch to also control the recline. Is it as simple as adding an additional set of wires (picture #2) out of this red thing I circled in picture #1?
Do I need diodes or any other thing so I don't blow this chair motor up?
>>949389 I'm not sure how your switch switches, but its very likely you will make a short if you use both switches at the same time, to different positions. If its a simple on/off switch that doesn't cross polarities then it would work without problems though. 2 switches in parallel usually isn't ideal, but since its just a momentary switch then it should work just fine.

>>942312 Building resonant bodies out of wood is a high art, you won't pick it up from a YT tutorial. It takes the material to the extreme and requires a lot of experience in selecting the right woods, carefully shaping them without disturbing their structure, connecting them with incredible precision, and doing it all while keeping track of the sound characteristics. It requires years of apprenticeship and mastery.
Recorders are easier. Electric guitars are very easy, there's very few parameters to control.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>942312 Yes. There are really two ways to go about lutherie. The first is to expect the instruments you built to be on the same level as professionally made lutes, violins, harps, etc. But here's the thing about that. All modern instruments have undergone hundreds, if not thousands, of years of evolution. Improvements and crafting techniques passed from master to master for generations. If you're trying to build an instrument that has never been built before, you will be disappointed if you want it to work as well... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/, I'm a newbie in need of your help. Internet guy just glued this wire to my ceiling, I'd like to put in in the bracket with the other wires. I don't know how though. Do I just drill into the bracket thing and push the wire in, drill into it in the other room and pull it out where I need it? Thanks for the help. Pic related, where I want the wire to go in
A few years ago, I had the strong urge to build a banjo, and then promptly moved 700 miles to philly with no access to tools or a job or anything. So the project fell by the wayside.
Now that I've got all my shit together, I thought I would pick the idea back up. Does anyone have any experience building a banjo? I'm not quite understanding the math and theory of why things are built the way they are. I don't want to make a glorified cigar box guitar with a tamborine and a length of board (though maybe eventually a fretless one like that would be cool to... Comment too long.

I don't know anymore where exactly I read this, but I think the wooden circles are not made with a lathe, but by glueing pieces of veneer together around a round template. This might not be for banjos though, but for actual toms. You might also find the Watson & Bailey plans helpful. Never studied them myself, since I always was more interested in the mandolin/mandola plans, but I think they're pretty in depth. http://web.archive.org/web/20081015172010/http://www.watsonbailey.com/plans/
>>948188 This is how the power settings work . Touch it once to set the timer for 3 hours, twice for 6 hours and a third time will turn the unit off. How does it know it is being touched? If I could stimulate it three times every 5 hours I could keep it on the 6 hour setting.
