None of the grounds on any of my outlets work, and I was starting to get spotty power at two of them, so i looked in the service panel, and this is what I found.

I think the source of moisture is coming from a vent in an air duct that connects directly to the a/c evaporator coil, which blows tons of moisture and even liquid water out of it. I'm definitely going to seal that off.

As for fixing the ground/neutral buses here, I'm not electrician but i have a decent understanding of home wiring, though never tackled anything like this. Would it be feasible...

Contact your landlord, or if you're the ho.eowner, contact a LICENSED electrician and get your shit up to code. Don't try to fuck with the bus. Don't try to wire anything yourself. you're endangering yourself and others that may enter your house.

Looking for some recommendations when it comes to gas masks. I know there are a good deal of surplus Israeli and soviet Russian varieties, probably some mixed in that didn't meet tolerances, but that's about it. Obviously I'd like something reliable either with easily available filters, or standardized modern sockets.

After dealing with some asbestos the other day, and that stuff used for walls that turns into a strong base when it contacts water, decided I ought to get something. Might as well go a bit further than a respirator.

A college kid had his foot blown off in Central Park on Sunday after stepping on a homemade firecracker, officials said.

“It was a homemade device. They probably tried to light it on Friday night, but it didn’t go off because of the rain,” a source said. “[Investigators] found wet matches near it. It probably just went off because of the friction of him stepping on it.”

Murphy said that when he walked up on the scene, Golden was lying on the ground...

53 KB,
So I'm sick of bottling my homebrew and want to cut down or eliminate bottling by switching to a keg. Few small problems though. I have a minifridge floating around but it is too short to fit a standard 5 gallon keg. There are 3 gallon kegs available brand new but they're like 30 dollars more. But they're more portable, would fit in my fridge, and while it wouldnt eliminate bottling, it would significantly reduce the amount I need to do. So brewfags, is it worth buying the 3 gallon now and a 5 gallon when I can afford to upgrade the cooler or just buy the 5 and figure out another way to keep the big bastard cold?

Well it'll be more than 30 because I would have to buy a bigger mini fridge. so more like 170 bucks or so.

Get a standard keg, buy an old chest freezer off craigslist or wherever for mad cheap, make a keezer, never bottle again. Also depending on the size of your freezer you can add more kegs later when you have the money if you decide to ever make larger or multiple batches.

60 feet isn't much. You can hit one from there with a weak BB or airsoft gun (maybe just not on the first shot--they aren't very accurate).

I'd say a pellet gun but then you run the risk of winging or killing one and you'll have to hide the evidence.

Alternatively you can just use bird repellent

I built a tube OD from a schematic I found online.

It was designed for 120v mains but I have adapted it to 220v operation since I live in a 220v country.

I have eliminated the voltage doubler section and used a full bridge rectifier and a single 33uf 350v cap and I am getting some kind of mains hum, which I believe is due to the filter section being inadequate. I think I need another filter cap, but I'm kind of a newb at this, so I'm pretty sure adding another cap just like this will not solve my problem. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey /diyers.

I was the OP from last week who posted asking for help with a curcuit with a 5v motor for a fan and 6 UV LEDs, running of a 9v battery.

I said I'd post some images of the build so yeh, a bit late, but better than never!
Anyway, the device is a nail polish drier/hardner for the missus so thanks to the anons in that thread who helped.
The device dries/hardens the nail polish about 3-4 times faster than the typical manic waving of hands with fingers spread out.

So I heard there are some modularfags here. As someone who has no soldering experience, where do I get started with diy eurorack modules? What sort of soldering iron do I need? I've watched enough youtube videos to know how soldering works, I just need to practice before I attempt to build something like a synth module. Where should I start, and where did you start?

Picked up some Vinyl planks to redo the flooring in my bathroom.

However when i pulled up the carpet that was there i could see that the owner before me had at one point put tile down or something that required glue.

Now, i have sanded it down to where its fairly smooth but you can still feel slight bumps and there are a few low spots.

Nothing i would say greater then 1/16 of an inch.

I would go down further but im running into issues that the subfloor is MDF board and i am worried about making it worse if my sander gets down into it.

Lay down some self leveling compound first if you're worried about it. Unless you seriously fucked up the subfloor I don't see it mattering but other than that a roll of underlayment first may be another option as well.
>>
You could do a sheet of quarter inch ply, they make a kind specifically for underlayment that's smooth on both side. Or use acetone to take up the glue. Low points aren't an issue(assuming they're not large enough to affect multiple planks), high points are. Get a cheap wood chisel and a small hammer and knock them off. Plywood will only compensate for bumps so much, and it doesn't matter how good a sub floor looks as long as it's flat.
>>
>>1017124

One option we have talked about was to put some 1/4 inch plywood down on top of the subfloor.

Since we took out carpet and carpet padding we lost a little bit of depth and that would raise it back up to be a less noticeable drop.

The issue is is that today (Saturday) is shot. Sunday we are going to my parents house after church to help them with some trim work so Sunday is shot.

Which leaves me with Monday morning to afternoon to get this done so i want my battle plan ready to crank this crap...

It is from the mold and becteria that the water gave life to, you will need to lift the carpet and scrape off the caked on becteria on the floor, and full strength bleach or other stuff to nuke the area, and then... stop spilling

>>1016368
The smell is never going to fully go away until you stop letting moisture infiltrate the area.

First thing first, if absolutely must continue to leave it on the floor then you need to devise a way to keep the condensation from running into the carpet. A cheap plastic tray from the dollar store of some shape should work just fine.

Second mix up at a 2:1 ratio a mixture of distilled water and distilled white vinegar into a clean spray bottle. Theres no point making it warm like most guides suggest since...
