Hey Diy guys, i dont normally hang around here but this time i need some help from this board. I passed by the office were a friend works and saw this and im interested to make one like this to put in my room, i have some free time right now and want to dive into this.
Where can i get those wood things (sorry dunno the name in english), but probably in the warehouse of some supermarket, they will probably give me.
How is the wood treatment, and how do i make the rest too.
>>948419 to measure small stuff really really accurate, get a plain vernier caliper and learn to use it.
Further reading: 1) get a non-electronic caliper, and get a non-dial caliper. cheap electronic calipers aren't reliable, and dial calipers only measure in one system (Imperial or Metric, but not both). a plain vernier caliper will be 100% reliable, and will measure in both systems. 2) get a plain caliper that can measure down to .001 inch, and down to .05 mm. 3) 6-inch / 150mm calipers can be had pretty...

Studio audiofag here, gunna need to see a big citation on that one, in 14 years of plugging shit in I have never seen any type of RCA plug that does not meet the standard. A quick check of wiki would indicate the same as well. There are bullet RCA's with a center return, but even these match the standard 1/8th inch center pin diameter.
Hi /diy/, today im here asking you if you know how to make pipes or bongs, Im a tobacco smoker and I have a cristal bong, but I'd like to do things on my own with home materials such as cans, water bottles... Things like that, you know hehe. Im waiting for brilliant ideas :p
>read sticky >If you want to discuss something that could involve such things (e.g., carving a tobacco pipe from wood) that's fine, but make sure it's /diy/ related and doesn't involve drugs or it will result in deletion/ban.
I'll allow this thread, but watch yourself McCoy >From Law and Order, only 80's kids will get this
>>948116 I think one of the main reasons that the rules are >>948120 Is because there is so much material so readily available on so many other sites with a simple search. I'm sure you can find a better, more "reputable" site for this kind of thing? Perhaps a different chan, if you catch my drift?
i receive this projector from a friend, i was gonna buy it from him, but when he went to test it, he said that a blue spark could be seen inside, and didnt turn on again so he gave it to me and told me that if i could fix it, its mine
what could have caused that spark? is it fixable? what should i be looking for when i opened it?
>>948045 I can't help much with a direct answer, but there is at least one CNC router platform that uses an Arduino mega.
In the past when I asked on machinist forums about details of how various CNC software actually worked (how the software itself was written) amateur and pro machinists alike generally didn't know anything about that aspect. They knew "machinist math" (tool feed rates and such) and they knew how to program 3-axis G-code, but they didn't know anything about writing computer software.
>>948045 Turing Completeness states that it's a language just like any other, so just work your way through Modern Compiler Implementation in [Java/C++/ml], and when you've finished you'll be able to write a compiler or interpreter for any language, including G-Code.
Look at existing gcode interpreters, and learn how to write gcode by hand, that makes those do what you want to do first. Then, when you've got both a better idea of how it works, and what you want, you can use that gcode you wrote as a test case for your interpreter.
Marlin is a very popular gcode interpreter for 3d printing, but iirc does come with many features you'd use in subtractive manufacture (CNC router, laser cutter, etc) as well. It runs in arduino megas, and I think there are ports to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've owned this 2005 Master Replicas Anakin Skywalker lightsaber for somewhere near 11 years, and was wondering if there was a way to remediate the pitting and rusting that is occuring. Without using chemicals would be preferred, but I'd be fine with having to do so.
I recently bought a condo and on the bathroom ceiling were a few issues. Basically there was peeling paint from moisture. The basic fix I've seen online is to scrape the paint, sand down any rough areas, use patching compound, smooth it out, prime it with anti-moisture stuff and then repaint.
I've got the scraping and sanding and will start using the compound soon. But there is an area on my ceiling that seems to be all the way down to the concrete. See the pic.
At it's widest, it's a few inches long. But it's not too deep.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>947212 >peeling paint from moisture. >area on my ceiling >Or should I go about it some other way? Yes, fix the source of the moisture first or everything else you do will be a waste of time and money. If it's something beyond your control like the roof leaking or the tenant above you has leaking plumbing you need to inform the people responsible like the condo owners association.
You missed what I was trying to say. The source is fixed. I need to know how to repair that particular area I showed. Can i do it like the other areas with the patching compound or since it's a bit larger and a few layers do I have to use a different method?
>>947379 Sorry I missed what you thought but failed to mention, >accusemeplease.jpg. >a bit larger and a few layers If it was me I'd want to peel up those layers then go beyond that and check for rotted wood. You mentioned something about concrete but is it just plaster or stucco. I'd look for something more than just a band-aid by patching since you don't know anything about this place even if you plan to just rent it out. Find out what those layers are first....

>>948018 All in 1s tend to do nothing well Looks gimmicky, and it's not a common name brand so replacements and upgrades will be impossible to find. What if that one handle piece breaks, then all of your tools are out of commission
Don't know if /vp/ or /tg/ would be better for this, but trying here first.
I've read up and watched videos about this regarding Magic The Gathering cards, but as far as searching for info about this on Pokemon cards, I haven't found much of anything on it yet. Most info searched always roots back to MtG card de-inking.
I do not have any MtG cards, so I can only go by the research I've done & info given by friends. From what I've noticed, rubbing the ink off a holographic/foil MtG card is a straightforward process:

>>945412 >Could the issue be something as simple as just how each place prints out their cards?
Two issues I see:
Acetone is a fairly powerful organic solvent, but it will only really work on ink that is polymer or oil-based. Pokemon cards might not be using such ink.
The other issue might be that the cards are treated with a sealant somehow. I recall them being somewhat glossy, so this isn't all that improbable. Depending on what kind of sealant is used, it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>945430 I'll leave a scrap holo card soaking in a bit of water to see how it goes. Coincidentally there was also a MtG related article dealing with that somewhat. The OP of that basically peeled off the entire foil layer from the card, which was the desired effect I guess. At the very least it gave some data on time frames that could be a rough start to aid with these cards.
Gonna have to start looking into pic related a lot more now since using patterns from Pokemon cards is looking slim.
you're not likely to find that unless it's from an old unit someone threw away. however, you can buy that material at Home Depot , etc, in sheets of, maybe 4ft x 2 ft. they're in the building materials section, next to the wood. you'd have to cut it with an acrylic knife, and rig it to stay in place, maybe with some wire pushed thru tiny holes drilled in the plastic and in the fixture.
I have a project... So, I dropped a small electronic device in a very deep and narrow hole (~8 ft deep) and I need to retrieve it. I originally used an old hard drive magnet with a string to pull it out but it wasn't quite strong enough... Can anyone help me out with some solutions? (pics not available)
