Heya! I need advice on how I can fix the R button of my 3DS. I was playing MonHun and suddenly stopped working; guess it was some dirt so I blowed it a bit, and now fuctions halfway -idk if that is expressed right, english isn't my primary language-.
Thanks in advance!

Pc-air duster that shit. Otherwise take it apart carefully and clean it.
>>
>>936401
If blowing it out doesn't work (clearing a physical obstruction) the button itself is likely shot.

They're tiny-ass little microswitches. They can't really be cleaned or serviced, and if you've got the case open far enough to get them out it's stupid to not just replace them entirely.

They're replaceable fairly easily if you're careful.

Howdy yall, need some advice. Have a decent sized workshop for the type of stuff I do.(14ft 8in x 7ft 5in). However I've found my self in a pickle. I purchased a Baja warrior mb200 mini bike a couple months back for getting me to and from local fishing spots. Specifically ice fishing. And when I purchased the bike I told my self just keep it simple, stock.... well boys will be boys. I've gotten into motor modifications and body, lighting ect. My question for yall is, any one have a good idea for a bike stand that is size efficient and can be easily moved into and out...

Op here, yeah I was looking into that however I'd like to be able to get it up off the ground a ways so I can easily work on the motor and such. I've got bad knees, need surgery so squatting isn't really the easiest for me. I have a simple jack stand I was looking at dirt bike stands but the bike is roughly 145lbs and pretty low to the ground so either lifting the bike up that high would be slightly difficult or install a hoist. So I hope hoping something along the lines of a jack possibly a cissor lift essentially. I use a milk crate currently. I would also like...

Sup DIY masters of the universe

This man was throwing out these regulated power supply's at an old speaker store and I got ahold of them. He mentioned they were broken but didn't say what was broken, which gave me the Idea that I could use parts from both to make one functioning again....well, hopefully.

I plugged in the one on the right first in order to see if anything was visually out of the ordinary and well.......This part exploded. I haven't tried the other one yet lol

The capacitors all blew out, but since it had voltage in it, I dare...

It's my first time doing a /diy/ project so I'm a bit clueless about what I'm doing.

I'm trying to make a basic shoe shelf out of a pallet I found (*cough* stole *cough*). I cut out 14 planks/pieces of wood using a hand saw (pic related, except with a blade for wood) of similar shape and size. The problem is that I didn't cut them out perfectly so some of the planks are different in length by 1-2cm. Is there an easy way to even out all of the planks or do I have to just mark some measurements with a pencil and use the handsaw again? I feel like...

Pallets are for queers, as are shoe racks.
You should be able to cut better than that 2cm is huge.
Practice measuring, marking and knowing where on the line you are cutting.
Use a file to take off any excess before sanding but the more mismatched your cuts are the more work it will take and filling is a real fucking chore.
But it will give you some incentive to cut better next time.
Use a coarse/rough/bastard file to start.

Thanks for the reply. I realize the pallet is shit quality wood, but I thought it would force me to learn more things rather than buying some ready to go wood planks. I'm also doing this on a budget, hence the pallet. What's wrong with shoe shelves?

238 KB,
This is my first thread here and I'm telling beforehand I don't knopw if this break any rules. I want to discuss the making of "vape juice", the liquid that is put into electronic pipes or however they are called.
I don't know if that's illegal on some places but I'm not putting tobacco or anything, just glycerine and some flavor.
I don't want to end up banned because I really don't know if this breaks any rule, but vaping without tobacco seems just something fun to do that doesn't involve drugs.

Thing is, I haven't vaped before so I won't know if I have done it correctly.
I'm going to buy vegetal glycerine, needed as base for the mix, because it's cheap and it produces a lot of vapor. The thing is I saw that "flavor" are just concentrated liquids.
My question is: How do I make my own flavor? Is that even possible? Example: I have some vanilla and I want to use it to give flavor to the juice. I'm searching on the topic but I can't find that info. Anyone?

Dunno how safe making your own flavors would be.
You can buy flavorings pretty cheap.
Here's 8mL vanilla for $1.87

Thanks. I thought they could be way more expensive. I wanted to buy the vegetal glycerine at a farmacy and I can't use the Internet to buy stuff, although I could just ask some friend.
You guys can discuss your mixes and stuff vape related here, I'm very interested because I get very relaxed inhaling vapor and buying one of these seems really comfy.

Hey diy I have a problem. I bought a can of acrylic paint 18 months ago, with which I painted my radiators (the paint was a matte brown color).

Today I decided to go over my radiators again with the same paint, but to my horror the paint turns out to be glossy as fuck now. I made sure to flip all my cans of paint upside down every months or so, and I've stirred in it quite a lot, so that can't be the problem.

Does this shit age or something? Did I do something wrong? I can go out and buy another can (probably), but it the color keeps changing, the problem...

you know the more layers of paint you add to these, over the years it will decrease its efficiency because the layers of paint will start acting as insulation and not transfer the heat
>>
>>935713
1. Yes spray paint can go bad.

2. The pigments in most paints are in fact temperature and light reactive; oxidation, light and heat will change the color over time. Fact.


3. There is specialty "High Temp" paint made just for Radiators.

4. While layers of paint will reduce the radiators efficiency, I don't think spray paint will have an appreciable effect.

>to my horror

That's a bit of an exaggeration, don't you think? How serious is a glossy radiator?

Hey /diy/, mind helping me build some shelves for my desk setup?

Dad was never around to teach me woodworking, and I'm needing to build two shelves with drawers for under my PC desk. The dimensions are too niche to find in an average store, and figured building one would be a nice alternative.

Pic related, the spaces between the desk parts are about 11 inches wide and about 27 inches tall.

What kind of wood should I invest in? Nails or screws? How to properly line up the drawer railings? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

I am in the process of building a dust collection system, or shop vac or whatever. Anyway I'm soon going to have suction to all my tools ( finally) but I'd love to have the suction to turn on when I turn on any tool!
I have lots of power tools, one phase tools are bandsaw, belt sander, bench grinder, planer and others. Three phase tools are circular saw and drill press.

So any idea how to acomplish this? Pic is related, there would need to be a switch somewhere downstream from such as lighting and handheld power tools that would turn on the suction automatically....

Correction:
More phases than ONE!

>>934664
What?
You need a current sensor on each phase. Like a clip on loop thing that goes around each wire somewhere. And a controller that operates a contactor when current is detected anywhere

Just hook it up to a light switch that also runs a ceiling fan or other dust control measures. No harm in it running a while extra. Maybe try to make one of those "cyclone" dust collector things to keep the shop vac filter clean

I didn't know what to do with my first dremel either. Ended up buying a couple of pieces of hard wood from home depot and carving a couple of tobacco pipes. That was back in '97. Still have the same dremel today. It's probably been through thousands of hours of use now. Almost certainly the best investment I've ever made.

I live in a small apartment and would like to use a single indoor HDTV antenna for both my TV's.

My indoor Antenna is amplified - it's a Terk HDTVa. Which one of these would work best?

The top right is a splitter. The other two are taps.
It's written right on them what they do.

You won't get to watch above channel 63ish with it because it cuts off above that frequency. The others aren't any better really.

The splitter is more correct for what you want to do, unless you want one tv to have a good picture and the other to have a shitty picture.

Depending how hot your amplifier is it probably doesn't matter. If it's a shitty little amp for one tv, then...
