Got any ideas on how to make this? I'm thinking angle irons and pallet wood. There are benefits I see for this and sex plus just being lazy. But I like this. What ideas do you have for this when making it to make the process cheaper and easier?

Not illegal. Saws just have very small arbors so as to discourage their use.

Motor brakes cannot stop that much mass in a timely manner and blade guards don't work with them, so Eurocrats did what they do best.

Probably the same reason guns are illegal.

the regulations have specified that spinning blades must come to a full and complete stop within 10 seconds of the power to the blade being shut off if the blade is readily accessible to the operator's body.

Large fab shops and equipment used industrially have retractable blade guards, or heavier duty engine brakes to comply with the regulations.

Grinder and corded power drill.

Fuck. I'd have to go with two combo machines. A DeWalt radial arm saw and a Shopsmith probably. Not ideal machines and you have to re-zero them every time you switch up what you are doing but they can literally do everything. I can't think of a single operating in the shop they can't handle.

For around the house tasks I generally use hand tools because I fucking hate battery operated tools.

Hello there, diy. So I'm going to buy a gun and there in Europe we have to have a safe for storing it. Problem is that the price for a gun safe starts at 200 euros for a simple one, so I want to try to build it myself. I have a MIG welder so I think I could build it by myself for ~50 euros. The requirements for self-built gun safes are:
-everything is made of at least 3mm steel
-lock is hidden behind doors (no padlocks)
-hinges is also hidden to avoid easy access to breaking them
The only problem which I can't solve is hinges. How do I hide them without...

Do I really need a college or university course to learn how to solder? I'd like to learn and become proficient and do repairs in the future. But holy tits even the bottom of the barrel shitty college courses here are $10,000 for a 2 year courses. That's a ridiculous amount of money to throw out without a guarantee that I'll make it back quickly. It's not really an option anyway as my credit is shit since I have a few things in collections. (Fun fact the last time I went to school for something they let me in the course before my student loan was completed...

1. Purchase a soldering iron + solder.
2. Find some junk electronics to practice soldering on.
3. ???
4. Profit!

You really don't need a college course to learn to solder.

To learn to solder? God no.

To learn to repair computers, unless you're about to spend a ton of money on stuff to practice on, yeah.

Here at my work we manufacture pcb's. We can typically teach some one off the street to solder well in two weeks or less.
But to understand the "why's & how's" I would recommend going to school.

If you use a chain and sprocket you'll need a huge sprocket on the wheel. Just use friction drive on the tire like the picture.

it's around 3-4000 psi but if you absolutely must know just put a gauge on it..

>>938652

its not even close to 3-4000 psi. a full co2 tank of most designs is full at 800-900 psi. temperature will affect the pressure as its filled by weight and not to pressure.

Thats the output pressure from the regulator.

He's clever, should weld more.
Uses band saws incorrectly sometimes. But he's good at what he does.

So I have about 40 rolls of this stuff but buying 40 cases for it is too expensive. I looked to see if anyone had ever done a diy to store and despense these but came up with nothing. I'm wondering if anyone has an ideas of a diy way to store and make them easier to despense.

I don't know the exact sizes of that thing, but perhaps 2 Pringles can lids around the spools with a pencil/pen through center would work?

it's already in a dispenser, isn't it?

They are thin so get a empty tape dispenser and u can put 10 or about rolls on one and have the tape on the edge easy to rip.

It's slanted due to the stairs below, how would you utilize the space?

First thought was a tip out drawer, but that wouldn't be space efficient. I can only picture 2 pull drawers, what do you think?

Going with 2 drawers and on the right side where the door is, small cubbies for rolling pins and the like.
>>
I would go with just 2 shelfs, seems the easyest solution. Just put a board on the slanted part as a back. Make a smal shelf at about 20cm high, and a higher shelf with more depth above that. Then hide the bit under the bottom shelf and the beam/planks on top with a nice plank. As an option you could put doors in front.
