My wife and I are interested in building a vardo / gypsy wagon (pic related), for use as either a camping trailer, guest house, or possibly even for long term living. There are a variety of build guides I've found, but I thought I would drop a line here to see if anyone has any experience or advice on building campers in general, and tiny campers in particular.
Anyone have any stories, resources, or advice on these things? I know it's probably a long shot -- but the internet is a strange place, so who knows.
Hey Anon, if you want to know more about building one of these before you get into it, try looking up tumbleweed tiny homes. They have people who travel around the US doing weekend seminars about the finer points of building your own tiny home.
Hi folks! I rarely come to this board, but figured you could help me. I would like to set up a 5.1 sound system in the room of my new apartment and the owner gave the permission, but asked me to make it so I can fix it if I move out in the future. What can I use which can hold hanging speakers and can be removed with the least damage to the wall?
I don't think so. I'm scuba certified and have a great deal of diving experience, I have a solid grasp of the principles involved and how to make it as safe as it can be with various redundant backups.
All I'm proposing here is a simple diving bell that's big enough and comfortable enough to spend some time in.
Hello /diy/. So I got this electric motor that a uncle gave to me and I'm trying to repair it. I have almost no electric skills but I thought that with your and youtube's help I might have a chance.
So it has been under rain for a couple days, so it got water in the electric cables. I took it apart and dried all the components, but this capacitor seems like was gone, so tomorrow I will buy a new one. Anyways can it be fixed guys?
Hi does someone has good resources/ material to share about arm development? Like which files is necessary and how t osetup new project if talking about STM32. How the fuck should i know which files is necessary to setup and include to code? Lets say i watch youtube tutorial, but i wanna understood how t odevelop stm32 project, why i need to do su much crap only to blink LED and etc.? Best regards for people whos gonna help me Btw i wanna learn C programming not mbed or assembly
>>950604 Thanks for informative link. You see, i wanna learn to program in C. mbed is like arduino. Assembly is far too dificult for me. Why I want lo learn program embedded in C? Because i wanna have balance between using efficiency of resources and development speed. In my opinion embedded C>> mbed IDE like AVR-C>>Arduino. Btw sorry for poor grammar, english is not my native language
I was given a Raspberry Pi 2 as a gift some time ago and I was really excited when I got it. It was fun to tinker with but ultimately I quit messing with it so much and it has been sitting in a closet for some time now.
A few days ago I decided to pull it out and see if I could use it to watch some stuff on my TV without having to connect the HDMI cable from my computer.
My experience so far has been as follows:

>Anyone have any other ideas? Is your only interest consuming media? If so, you have to realize that you are limited to what will run on the Raspberry PI, unless you are willing to do some work to get what you want. Its a SoC with GPIO: you have a computer with OS and GPIO, so you can do *anything* a basic computer can do. It just isn't built in. However, there aren't any arbitrary restrictions either (like with a smartphone).

You haven't built anything, you're not replacing anything, you're just asking questions on how to work an appliance!!
DELETE THIS SHIT BEFORE I REPORT IT. READ THE DAMN MANUAL OR GOOGLE IT, DON'T SHIT-POST THIS CRAP HERE GOD DAMMIT I'M TIRED OF SEEING SHIT LIKE THIS ON DIY. AS AN AVID CONTRIBUTOR TO THIS BOARD PLEASE KEEP /DIY/ DIY RELATED, THANKS.
So today I thought of about playing CSGO and while waiting for the game to update I thought of going on facebook but instead of the usual google.bg site opening this site opens I open my options menu in Chrome and it says that the default search site is WebSearch wich is bullshit after an hour I tried everything to remove this WebSearch thing off my Chrome but to no successes So /diy/ what should I do ? Help me out here Note right now Im running a complete system check with the anti-virus Ive unistalled all plug-ins from Chrome Ive unistalled and reinstalled... Comment too long.

>>949291 No dude, the way you detect minuscule contaminants in oil is with a spectral analyzer which is stupid expensive lab equipment. It's soooooo much cheaper just to pull an oil sample and send it to get tested that "diy-ing" a spectral analyzer into your project (I'm assuming your truck) is objectively a bad idea.
Word of this gets around to my friend who purchased a totally disconnected massage chair off craigslist. He totally believes I can connect everything and get it working, wouldn't even take no for an answer. So I googled the serial number got jack shit. I phoned a few massage chair companies to see if they can trace it but I'm now informed that companies purchase a base model and stamp their company logo on it so it essentially means nothing. I can't find any instruction booklets online. My friend... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys, I just unburied an old well at my house, apparently not on record. It's really shallow as wells go, I can see water down about 8-10 ft. Can anyone recommend a good pump that would be able to self prime this distance?
>>946082 It wouldn't have to be. I could get a cylindrical submersible pump you shove down the pipe but they usually start at 300 bucks, and want 220v power from what I have seen. Seems like that might be overkill for this setup though
I is current, not "intensity." The load, ie. the resistance, determines the amount of power drawn from the supply, assume constant voltage. Pretty much every power supply you will encounter is intended to operate at constant voltage. Notable exceptions include battery chargers, because batteries should be charged at constant current, not constant voltage. But this only applies to ones the charge the cells directly, not phones and laptops and things.
No computer power supply is going to be able to source 400A of current, and good thing, because you probably would have killed yourself. It likely has current limiting circuitry so it doesn't blow up when some idiot like you tries to short circuit the supply and turn it on. If it drew 400A through a resistance of 0.03 ohms, you'd be dissipating 4.8 kW in the wire; you already mentioned that your supply was 300W max. A well designed supply will do what yours did. If you were less lucky the supply would be toast, possibly with an electrical fire if you were less lucky.
Use heater element wire, like nichrome or something, which is higher resistance.
>>947619 Obviously I haven't done it with a computer PSU. I tried a modem PSU that probably doesn't have more than 1W.
I am trying to understand how it is possible that despite trying to shortcircuit (which is what you more or less do with a hot wire foam cutter) the modem charger it allow more current. Since you said that normal power supply units normally operate at constant voltage, in this case 12V. Supposedly if I reduce the resistance(shortcircuiting) I should get higher amperage.
measure the voltage at the output of your power supply as you short it. it will be very low. P=V*I if any of V or I is low, the power will be low. the keyword here is internal resistance of the power supply most of the voltage drops internally
