Any wood stove experts in here? My father and i installed one in our home about a month ago. Yesterday i got up on the roof and noticed a buildup of creosote beginning to form. Any idea what could be causing this? Here is a video of the smoke coming out:
I have a question: A solar panel I have has a 5 watt output but only releases .65 volts and over 7 amps. If I hooked it up it a converter that has a 5 volt input, would the converter still work? I ask this because with 5 watts you could have a 5 volt 1 amp output. I apologize if seems like im making no sense.
1944 house, was advised that I could remove a wall that ran perpendicular to the ceiling joists. Twenty foot stick roof span, wall was two feet off center 15' across 30' span running east west. Removed wall and patched with no immediate issue. However now that it has snowed quite a bit the plaster (plaster over plasterboard, not lath, not drywall) is now cracking in five places and getting worse and an old hairline foundation crack close to where I removed the wall appears to be expanding. I believe its caused by the load transfer from the removed central wall to the exterior walls. The wall I removed was fifteen feet long running half way across the 30' span crawl space underneath. The logic in my advisor was that the structure of the side without the wall is identical to the side from which I removed the wall.
My question is, what cracking in the plaster is normal/acceptable. If I add a beam with a post in the center, just as a partial support to the roof joists where the wall was is that a good idea? The foundation is getting a little water nearby too which I will be fixing with raingutters soon.
And, if professional advice is recommended, where do I go without being taken for a ride?

So I have a drone with 3.7v/500mAh battery, which lasts about 5 minutes. I want to connect it to DC power, but the fucking Chinese power source I ordered is broken and only let's me adjust the Volts. What kind of power source do I need and where can I get one?
I am diving head-first into diy laser engraving/cutting with pic related kit. I ordered longer rails and extra belt to replace original frame to give myself more room to work/fuck up. Does anyone out there have recommendations on how to best go about getting started?
>>940547 I'm just now getting into it myself (my picks haven't even arrived yet), but I ordered this to start off with http://www.lockpicktools.com/8-piece-set-prh/ Alongside a practice lock to work on.
i pick but i haven't picked(heh) it up for a while. last thread there was a huge shitshow about breakins and nigger accusations for some reason. I've seen several peaceful hobbypicking threads on here so there is no need to justify it to trolls.
I'm a novice out of practice at best, but this is my take on it. get a cheap pick set on DX or something, my first set was supercheap and worked fine. now i got a southord set, hasn't upped my game much 2bh. proper tension rods where the best part of the kit for me.

I've been making hand painted wooden boxes for commissions, they are just artists oil paint on wooden boxes. I've been trying to find a good clear coat to give it a finish like the one in the picture, but so far I've tried varnish made for oil paint and it has a sticky feeling and it's not smooth at all. I'm trying to find a clear coat finish that's safe to use on oil papint
It usually costs the same as the TV itself to replace the panel. If you can't really afford a new one, would it be a dick move to tell everyone who attended "Hey, my TV got broken during the party and can you chip in a few quid to replace it?"
what can i add to carpet to make it more like hardwood/floor?
i want to teach myself how to dance. the place that im living in right now (renting, so i cant just replace the carpet with hardwood) has a nice basement where i can teach myself how to dance. problem is, the floor is carpet which is something that's slippery compared to concrete or hardwood when wearing shoes.
so what can i put on top of carpet to make it more like hardwood or concrete? i know i cant just assemble some small patch of hardwood and put it on the floor, because that would end up sliding... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm trying to put together a DIY version of the Dune board game made by Ilya. I want to paint wooden tokens and stick a vinyl sticker to make the pieces. The plan would be to apply to the wooden disks, in this order:
However, experimenting beforehand on a piece of wood, I found that the piece remained sticky/tacky to the touch, even after 2 weeks of drying in a fairly dry weather. I didn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
