First time poster here, i found out that ive seen more and more people that spend a lot of time in their computers (mostly for entretainment) that usually have either a race car seat as an office chair or an office chair inspired by its design and materials, so i took up on google to figure out why, but all i could find were websites that sold them.

I dont even know if this is the right board, since there is no furniture board, but if anyone knows, why is it that race car bucket seats are becoming the new high-end office chairs? is there any particular reason or something?

Hey mate i did it, it was out of necessity as my old office chair was all torn up and falling apart. So i had 2 seats laying around for a car im building and used 1 of em for my office chair. Havent got a pic on my phone but used an isotta talladega seat, came up really nice.

So is there no real advantage in design or materials other than the looks?

I plan on painting my basement, but we have these tiles (which quite frankly I am not a huge fan of). All these "interior design trend" sites only account for rooms that have dark wooden floors and what not. Can someone help me out?

17 KB,
Does anyone know of a transparent material that I can print on to that is water proof and will not bleed into water?

I was thinking acetate printed on with standard ink. Would that bleed off at all?

Basically what I am looking to do is fill a jar with water, and put a transparent material with an image printed on it inside. I was also thinking maybe just laminated paper, which will seal off the water. Any ideas?

if its waterproof material then obviously a standard orinter isnt going to cut it as the ink wont be able to penetrate the material to stick. best bet it to laminate it after printing. as long as its laminated properly and sealed it will remain 100% waterproof

shit I forgot oto mention you can print images on transparency film.. they make this for inkjets and THEN laminate that. that way you have a transparent everything.

Uhhh, could be tricky.
But I would try packing it tight with fine dirt or something similar, then drill it as slow as possible with a small bit while keeping it wet to collect the glass dust

Plasticene or Blu tack ring around where you want the hole. Fill with light oil - cooking oil will do. Masonry bit at low speed. Scraping some grit off sanding sheets into the oil will help.

Hello, I've been trying to see what's wrong with my rotary tool. It makes a lot of noise on power option 3-4, but sounds healthy on 1-2 or 5-6. I tried taking off all attachments and tighten the spindle as hard as I could and the rotary tool sounded healthy on all power options.

I've come to the conclusion that the diameter of the dremel attachments don't allow me to tighten the spindle lock all the way which makes the sound unbearable at some levels. I've been thinking I might need another collet but would like some information before I buy.

I wish I had thought about this board earlier, because /mu/ was of no help whatsoever.

I got this thing new for like $75 and I’m gonna build an EVH Frankenstrat out of it.

I already got the spray cans but I can’t find a Frankenstrat paint tutorial or template that’s simple and easy to follow. Every video just shows a sped up clip of the guy taping the guitar and most templates don’t follow steps, pretty much like “just put the tape and spray, faggot". The ones that kinda do show how to tape it have relicing involved and I don’t want this replica...

First order of business is to pull the pickguard up and see how the routing looks.
A lot of those cheap guitars have swimming pool routing which obviously isnt going to work with a EVH replica.

And as for installing a 2 pivot bridge on a 6 screw pivot body, you can just drill the outer holes bigger to install it.

Painting it really is as simple as laying tape and spraying. It cant be that hard to figure out what order of paint to tape to get your desired results.

>>945773
>Frankenstra
For paint, the biggest thing I think is the order of the colors.

I'd basecoat it in black, white mid coat, and then red for the top coat.

You'll paint the entire thing black, let it dry entirely, put tape down everywhere you see black/want to see black. Then paint it white and let it dry.. Put your tape down where ever you want to see white (coverage on each of these layers will be a bitch btw...maybe use selfpriming for that extra color thickness?)...then...

Eddie went Black, White, Red. He made special note to say that it was Red Schwinn Bicycle paint though. If I were you though I'd turn that into Yngwie's guitar Duck, everyone has seen a Frankenstrat, but build a Duck and scallop the fingerboard and you'll have something special.

Now, I want to replace the steel backing plate with Lexan, because I'll be using silhouette-style targets and that'd mean I'd have to repaint the steel backing plate over and over again.
I want to be able to use this thing indefinitely. I'll be using a Diana Mod 75, which has about 7.5J(5.5 ftlbs). I'd like the backing plate to be able to take at least double that, so 15J/11ftlbs.

How thick should that Lexan...

Now, what you're seeing in pic related are the full-size bullet traps. They get hauled up to the top of the poles, and then shot at by a 12 gauge single shot bolt action rifle. It uses a 39mm bullet (overall length), and it's about a 35 gram projectile going at a maximum of 230 m/s (540 grain, 750 ft/s. Total energy of about 675 ftlbs/900J).

Targets look like pic related. You want a clear background because we're using standard Olympic style sighst, so no magnification, and a diopter and the rear and a globe sight at the front. I'll post the gun we're using next.

What I want is a similar setup for airguns for indoor winter practice. We're using standard 10m olympic-style target airguns, with the exact same sights as the full size guns. Now, the downside is that all the airgun bullet traps currently in use don't have a clear...

Work at menards or lowes or whatever and want to commiserate?

Hey /diy/ do you know anything about old airconditioners?

My grandmother lives in an old wooden house and she wanted to use the old aircon in her study since it's summer here. I tested it and it seems to run fine, the only issue is that outside the previous tenants attached a hose for the water to drip out through. However no water comes out after 5+ hours of running, so I'm confused if something is wrong. Grandma says it means the water must be leaking inside the machine and into her walls but I can't find any sign of dampness or water under the house...

I have heard of those hoses getting blocked. Take it off and hold it against a water tap and see if water passes. There may be an internal tray filling up.

Had a relative with one of those who lived near the sea. Each year she would take it out, take the case off and rub everything with fishoil. Perhaps an internal inspection is in order to see if wasps have built a nest and plugged the drain or similar.

>>940616
The drip is to drain condensation from the radiator. If the humidity is low enough, there may be too little condensation to form a drip.

It's easy to check. Take the front off, find the radiator, there should be an obviously pan shaped drip pan underneath it. If there's no water in the pan, you're fine. If there's water in the pan, but it's not draining, it's a blocked drain tube. If so, best to fix that so it doesn't drip inside and cause water damage.
