Hey guys I have an old model 302 western electric phone
I want get it to work again but I need to replace the wire that plugs into my phone jack, so if I did this do you think it will work? If so, how do I do it?

You could just wire it directly into a phone jack.

Tip and ring from the phone. Find your jack.

It's the red and green or blue and white wires.
>>
Protip: that phone uses pulse dialing so unless you get a converter, you won't be able to use it for any touch tone applications. So no calling customer service.

I got the Overnight Sensations kit for Christmas an I was wondering if anyone here have built some. Any tips? This'll be my first speaker build but I've soldered before and the cabinet just gets glued together, so I don't anticipate any issues.

I suppose this can also become a general speaker-building thread

bar clamps and non expanding wood glue, maybe quick disconnects for inside the cabinet?

maybe some tape to label which is TL/TR, ML/MR.

That's all I can think of when I assembled a kit

I built my pair in 2012, mids are fuckin amazing.

Anyway make sure you have clamps to glue the cabinet together so it goes together properly. The wiring and general building etc was fast and easy, the finish is what took me goddamn forever. If you're painting and care about finish START WITH A WOOD SEALER holy shit that would have saved me so much time and primer. I primered and sanded goddamn I can't remember how many times, used some Spackle for the tiny gaps at the cabinet seams too. Build took me a couple days, mostly waiting for glue to dry. Finishing took...

what kind of adapter do i need to be able to plug this small fan into the outlet directly?

One that supplies the same voltage and current that the fan requires to operate.

5v wall wart. Any cell phone charger will do.
>>932339
Current of the power supply can be greater than the current of the fan. Power supply current rating tells you the maximum it can supply. The current it will supply to the fan is the current draw of the fan.
>>
>>932338
5v regulated adapter rated above 80mA (so basically any 5v adapter). Red wire is positive, black wire negative, and white is the fan speed signal (tach).

Alright /diy/, first time posting here and I have a project that's been fucking with my head. I have a dated car, a 2003 Chrysler Sebring and the headlights on it suck a whole lot of fucking dick. To compensate, I bought a pair of Plasmaglow Lightning Eyes, which are just waterproof LED strips with nothing but one 12V wire and one ground wire (pictured)

My problem is I have to wire those lights into my car, but every video or guide I've found on youtube shows fuses that I don't believe I have. Hopefully you guys can help me wire this through, and tell me...

well when do you want them on?
if you want them on all the time then put in a new fuse in a spare carrier and connect them to that
if you want them on with the car wire them into ignition after a fuse
if you want them on with headlights then wire them into the headlights
if you want them on with interior lights then wire them into interior lights
if you want them on when you wash your windows wire them into your washer jets.

Ok, to make a long story short, my hands are shit but I want to try to carve things.

the conclusion i have reached is use foam.

foam itself is relatively expensive, and large so i don't want to buy pre made pieces.

is there any diy foam i could make, that would have little to no air pockets, (think the fiam normally has .01mm air holes or less, but than there is one area that looks like it could be mistaken for swiss cheese) that i could make in fairly small quantities or containers, empty soda cans?

I dont think you are going to be able to make your own foam any better.

What kind of carving are you talking about
>>
>>931869
sharp knife, but sense its just foam, i could probably be able to use an exacto knife more precisely.

quality wise... i'm not expecting it to be perfect, just wondering if there was an option that would piss me off.
>>
>>931884
for an ultra ghetto version you could use spray can expanding foam, spray it into a frame of the shape you want and then carve it?

Not sure how toxic it would be to handle over a large period of time but it might work?

Cheap alternative to RC hydraulics?

I want RC hydraulics but one piston alone costs you more than fucking 100 bucks. Which is absolutely insane. And hydraulics are a pain in the ass to work with anyway, so I want to make it manually.

What is the best way to make them? I was thinking maybe mod some syringes with small tubes and an air compressor. So the hydraulics become pneumatics.

Any ideas how to control it? Those RC hydraulic sets are way too expensive.

> Which is absolutely insane
Tends to be the way, they are high tolerance, precision made devices that need to take a hell of a beating, and because hydraulics tend to be messy, complex systems, not many people use them unless literally nothing else will do the job. Low demand = Smaller production runs = Premium pricing.

I already made basement plans on my tablet and I wanted to know what regulations I should know of before I start working on it. I went to a local hardware store and brought my tablet with the plans on it to ask for help/suggestions about certain regulations and they said they didn't handle stuff like that nor did they know of any places that did.

I just want to know what regulations to go by or if anyone know of a site that gives such regulations for the state od Illinois.

Thanks.

City and state codes are available on .gov websites. I dont' know what those websites are for your area but you can usually search for building code.

The reason hardware stores don't get involved with code or plan approval is because they don't like to be sued or be hit with city inspector fines which can be pretty steep.

If its an actual basement you're going to have plumbing problems if its not already setup for drainage. Water has a tough time going up thus why not many toilets are below ground.

Some localities demand all floorplans...
