>853D soldering station
It's a good choice
>>
I was looking at a similar one for regular home soldering and stuff because it looks neat and has a lot of features for only $100
>>
>>1016344

As much as everyone shits on the cheap chinese soldering stations, I have an 852D+ and it works great.

That being said, there's some issue with it that can give you a tingle if you're suitably grounded...

Anyone who wants to build any domocile needs to just get a copy of this shit. It walks you through every calculation you need from footing depth and width, to framing, and roof load.

Get it, read it, study it, learn it.

Hey guys, I know you still interest in those things and I know you can help me with my new project. I want to make a new sound system for my working laboratory which allow sound experience: I want to use a processor (IMX6L) and some DAC/amplifier (TAS5760M) embedded in each speaker box to drive them. The ULTIMATE purpose is to manage the EQ and volume of each speaker via I2S.

Here on the next picture is my electronic arch, I got in hands the I2C configuration with a beautiful Nucleo F303 code. And I know how to send data to the DAC/Amplifier with an audio precision tool....

I'd like to make pixel art using beads and sell the fuck out of them.
The problem is, I'll probably need to buy beads in bulk for every color, and it's expensive.

Is there any way I can make my own beads or is there a better alternative?

>sort them out

These cocksuckers right here.

How can I snap these bastards off without dashing my knuckles across the wall every god damned time?

Hammer claw doesn't fit in the loop, and I'm not really open to the idea of grinding the tines down to make it fit.

15" adjustable wrench worked fine for snapping them off, but fuck me if I didn't end up taking a few layers of skin off my knuckles.

There must be a better tool for this. I had to break roughly 500 today, and next week after the next pour, I'm probably looking at another 500-1000 depending on how much we get done.

Help me /diy/. Help me to maintain my sanity.

>TL;DR: Is there a tool specifically for breaking these fucking things?

Bolt cutter?
>>
>>1015660
Yes and no. It would take off the loop for sure, but the idea is to twist the end so that it snaps the tie behind or inside the cone so that the cone can be removed, leaving a hole that can be filled.

Using bolt cutters would leave some of tie flush or proud of your wall, fucking up your finish.

Impact wrench, with a socket that's had a slot cut through the middle.

worn pads and rotors won't make white smoke without a shit load of noise.

how is your brake pressure?
are you sure it isn't your exhaust?

put a brick on the accelerator and take a look.

So my poulan chainsaw is giving me hell.

It was sitting on a shelf for over 5 years. I replaced all the fuel lines, spark plug, air filter and fuel filter.

The chainsaw starts with starting fluid but doesn't stay running.

I disassembled the carb and it was very clean like the saw didn't see much use ( I inherited it , so i don't know) , the diaphragm was also still flexible and in working order.

Not sure what else to check. Any ideas?

put marvel mystery oil in the gas and oil ( a bit not to much), and let it work it's way in. pull the cord and let it run as long as it can.
>>
make sure the new fuel line isnt kinked in the gas tank pinching off flow. You may have installed it too far. If not, carb. bowl needs to be drained or carb, cleaned. Should be a drain screw somewhere on the carb.
>>
Clean out the carb with carb cleaner.

It might look clean but all it takes is one tiny blocked passage and that's it. After sitting there is probably varnish in there

Hey /diy/, after a domestic dispute with my stepdad regarding what I can and can't do with the household, the mailbox in pic related got punched so there's some damage to it.

Don't know what kind of material it's made of, but if you punch it, it is dented and it can look like it has a rip.

Is it possible to fix or am I fucked and I gotta spend another 15 dollars to get a new one?

I am going to be staying on a farm for a while and was told to build a cabin.
I am looking for some ideas (dimensions, styles), tips, links (free plans) or anything that can be of assistance.
I'm not sure of the dimensions but it should be small as is it just for shelter and sleeping.. no kitchen or bath. It should also be cheap.
They told me to look into "pole buildings."
I have no experience with such a task so anything will help.

If I were you I would go for a simple flat roofed shed with a 2x4 frame clad in ply if longevity isn't an issue otherwise clad in larch or similar.
It's easy to do, takes little time and is relatively inexpensive.

long enough to be making a permanent structure? is it meant to be permanent?

insulation? roofing? siding? floor? windows?
>>
>>1014367
It could become permanent, I'm sure that they will keep it up after i'm gone and if I return maybe I'll add onto it.
There won't be any insulation or flooring other than plywood. I'm sure the roof will be something basic for now like plywood. Other than a door there might be a window.

I live in a apartment and I am bored out of my mind. I wanted to get a hobby but most interesting hobbies require a work space. Apartments are limited and you can't use things that are fire hazards. Like I had a interest in glass working but that requires obviously a torch and that isn't happening in a apartment.

What are some other similar hobbies i could try that are apartment friendly?

Square cages don't work well with round things. I'm sure you're trolling, but on the off chance that you aren't, redesign it round, home depot has small round steel rod already made for the bars, and make sure you make it a clamp style closer.

I came into a birch edge glued slab, ment for a work bench. Is is 27"x 60" x 2".

I want to turn it into a coffee table but that dimension feels too wide.

Should i rip it along a glue line, down to 20" using my skill saw?

Size seems fine to me. But if you do want it narrower, aim your cut an 1/8" on the waste side and then sand down the rest.

Before cutting you might consider if (and how) the cut-off pieces can be used.
