60 KB,
Anybody here have experience with NFC tags and the hardware used to read them? Is there a way I can make my own readers so I'm not spending 50 bucks a pop?

Any modern smartphone can read them.

Yes but I'm looking into a project that requires about ten separate readers all working at the same time. I don't have 10 smartphones

You can buy ten unlocked cell phones for less than 50 each.

does anyone know how to dynamic motion tracking or whatever its called in blender? im trying to do gif related, basically focus on a specific part of a video and make the scene move around it as if the camera was locked exactly in place against the object. literally the only tutorials i can find are for putting 3d objects into a video with motion tracking, which is not what i want.

Ok so I now I'm retarded and an autist, let's get that out the way. I was trying to replace some speakers in my car and when I unscrewed the bolts I also accidentally removed the wire in between them that allows the seats to go down when u push the release. At the time I didn't realise and now my back seats no longer come down. I need help if anyone can, I just don't know how to fix this.

Did you try turning it off and back on again?
>>
>>933943
I dont understand what you are saying
Cant you just rebolt whatever wire you pulled off?
>>
No so the bolts part is sort of irrelevant, so the buttons you push to detach the back seats is obviously controlled by the wire. I accidentally detached the wire itself that allows the car seats to go down, and I can't reattach it because when I put the seats back up they are covering the wire And it's unaccesable. :(

You just answered your own question, replace the electric furnace with something that isn't an inefficient piece of shit.

Generally I would always recommend doing upgrades to piping. A thick wrap would help insulate the pipes that carry you heat and water to their destination. As far as mods to the unit... In not sure really.

not necessarily. it could be a access key for the safe. newer safes have these electronic keys you put into a slot or they have some you just touch the side of it to a plate like a RFID reader and access the safe.

makes sense if OP found it while working on a safe

Can we talk tools? I like to carry a pocket knife with me, it's one of the most important, not as a weapon or some /b/ tier shit like that but for utility.

In my opinion nothing can match the high quality and practical user friendly interface of an Microtech Ultratech.

Utility? Practical? A spring knife? Go back to /b/

a big knife is infinitely useful: i just have to pull it out a lil' bit and my hoes stop yaking and get back to they corners where they belong.
>>
>>931680
yeah, there's really no benefit of a spring knife that is worth the hassle of dealing with weapons laws. I can open a regular folder (even one without the little assist knob or 'spring assist') one handed, since i still have all my fingers.
Plus, my instinct has always been to not trust the locking mechanism of a lot of folding knives. framelocks always seem to jam open on me, and don't trust the straight folders, so lockback for the win imo.

I have build many mechanical guns in my early life, all of them with LEGOs and so far they all have worked wonderfully, the only problems I experienced were caused by rubber bands breaking or the shock of the mechanism slowly loosening the pieces.
I want to know what Materials are the best and what should I expect for this project.
Since I have only made complicated builds in LEGO I may be following a similar building system for now.

Considering that is a fairly standard desk size and I referred to AUD I thought the average persons deduction skills would figure it out, but in case you didn't its mm that I am referring to.

Does it need to be 1300? Will 1200 do? I only ask because ply will be your cheapest option, but it comes in 1200 or 2400 length. If you can get away with 1200 then you can make two desks per one sheet of ply.

How stable do these tables nee dto be? Are they for display or working on?

I have a kobo aura Ereader, and lately I've been wanting to improve its battery life by a gigantic amount and/or making it never needing to be charged (like a solar panel or handcrank). My ereader has great battery life, but I'd like to see just how far I can go.

But let's just look at the battery life idea. I have two options I can think of so far:
1) connect some external power cells to my ereaders carrying case and just use my usb charge cable to connect battery to ereader.
2)replace the internal battery with something much larger. somehow.

I'm planning on sticking a flat metal board on a wall because I'm placing a bulletin board which is magnetic. The question is what kind of metal will effectively stick without making the magnet easily coming off.

Also what kind of glue will I place the steel over the wall?

>>932540
Just spray a sheet of steel with enamel then glue it to the wall. Instant magnetic white board. Google says drywall adhesive. Just ask your hardware store which adhesive is good for attaching brushed stainless to drywall in a kitchen. Because that's a thing people do for splash guards.

>>932556
But I already bought a magnetic board, It's too late to do that now.

It's for my office, and everytime I write something on the board, I do it on my chair and think, not standing up your ass everytime.

Ferrous metal. Glue it up with PL premium

So I bought a fairly moderately decrepit victorian property cheap because I was sick of renting and had visions of learning a bunch of new skills and having something productive to put my resources towards. I was also sick of renting and basically thought that it was one way to drastically change the direction of my life within the next 10 years compared to the path I was previously on.

It has been approximately 18 months and in that time I have ..
