Trying to "retire" my old 360 controller and put it in a display case while taken apart. Not sure where to get the shadow box or what size i should get. Ive also seen people use Styrofoam blocks with spaces cut out to fit the peices. How should i go about doing this
>>926797 Maybe a switch that will actuate an electric fence unit if lifted too high? Copper plate what mains positive hooked up screwed to wall behind faucet so lifting it too high completes the circuit to earth? Bear trap screwed to wall in same position?
Possibilities seem endless, OP. Where's the hard bit?
Aight /diy/, first time posting here. With winter finally here and me living in a shitty building I've a real problem with humidity. Electric dehumidifiers are out of my price range and I've read that chemical based ones are definitely not worth the price. So I decided to make one myself. I was thinking one based on calcium chloride, but I'm not sure what would be the best way to put it together. I was thinking a strainer with the CaCl2, with a container beneath it for collecting the refuse liquid and a fan above it for forced circulation.
Does that sound... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>925885 I've seen a calcium chloride based dehumidifier being literally just a bag of CaCl2 suspended from a rope over a bucket. Moisture gets absorbed, reaches saturation, then drips off into the bucket.
>>925946 Another thing. This solution had the added bonus of being 100% reusable. However, found the product I was thinking of, and it says that it only works to bring down the humidity to 45%, below which it won't work.
>>925645 Looks overpriced. In fact, you probably paid for that fancy green 'made in Germany' text more then the product itself. Hell, a monkey could push a liquid filled glass into a plastic or fiberglass shell when a machine says its level.
Anyways, stop looking for attention online you fag. This board is for posting diy projects and things done yourself. And not, shopping is not diy.
>>927944 I did, it says that it will work if the thermostat reads less than 3 C on the pipe but I applied the thermostat to the place there the pipe is frozen so I imagine it should be cold enough there.
So I want to design my own trackball mouse (pic more-or-less related) but I don't have any experience in making or designing hardware, so how would I get started? I know how to use Blender for 3D modeling but how should I go about developing a prototype of my mouse?
It's the anon from the woodworking bread who likes pan-head screws, and I want to make an audio-hub with 4-pole trrs chassis sockets instead of 3-poles. Does anyone know if these are for sale online? Preferably somewhere in New Zealand.
I was cutting a metal hook in bathroom and didn't cover the area hit by sparks so now I got miniscule metal shards embedded in the ceramic plates. Any protips on how to ge it out? I tried to scrape it off with metal scrape ut it just made it worse.
>>922883 sparks melt into glass and ceramic this happens very often during bodywork on cars mechanics just dont give a fuck welding masks have plastic shields in front of black glass to protect it from sparks >>922755 Those tiles are fucked, even if you removed sparks youre left with holes in enamel It would be easier to replace tiles And if you leave tiles as is, sparks will start to rust and form stains
Hey diynos, I had a party at my place and woke up with pic related. I had an older leather couch pressed near the wall, didn't know the corner was exposed and the steel edge dug into the drywall something fierce when one of my buddies laid back into the wall. So now I'm stuck with this, coke can for reference. Best way to fix it? California patch wouldn't be ideal, but I will do what I have to do. Thank you for any advice you may have.
So I bought this 105 year old house. Its still got trim up from I am assuming the early 70's or earlier. Its all really wide and thick trim. They have been painted over atleast two or three times with white paint. It looks good and has a clean modern look, my wife and I prefer that dark chestnut wood stain you find in old homes. I got two floors of this trim/baseboard, about 6 doorways, and two large archways. It would be a big, messy, and tedious task.
What I want to know is how long wood it taketo strip paint, sand, stain, seal. Keep in mind I got kids too. I dont... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I come to you with a vocabulary question and a terrible illustration.
I am looking for something much like a pogo stick, but a great deal shorter, perhaps four to eight inches. You could also consider it a shock absorber, but I thought those were hydraulic. It would need fasteners on each end, plus some mechanism to keep it together.
They'd come with a variety of spring constants so I could Hooke's Law out how far it would move under a given force.
Does this thing exist, and if so, what is it called?
I guess that'd just be called a spring. A spring and a shock absorber are two fundamentally different things. A spring reacts with a force proportional to how it is compressed or tensed. A shock absorber reacts with a force proportional to the speed with wich its end is displaced.
Why do you need to encase the spring in these cylinders? Depending on the forces involved you could use pvc pipe or perhaps get a telescopic fork from a crashed motorcycle. When bent the fork tubes are basically scrap metal, but they're usually bent within the top 6 inches or... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
if you can into schematics and datasheets, look up this regulator chip, or similar: AP34063
otherwise, ready made circuits can be found by googling. one easy way is to use a Blackberry car adapter (charger) with takes in 10-25V and puts out 5V. $3 at the thrift store. other brands may work, but are not specifically rated for 25V.
>>928027 It's not 'milliampere-hours', it's just milliamps, and it's not '0.28mA', that would be 280 *microamps*, it's 280 *milliamps*, or 0.28A.
Now, then.. what you need is a step-down (or 'buck') switching power supply. Since you need 5V (not 'around' 5V, it's *5V*) you can get a module that does this off-the-shelf -- which in your case is a good thing, since I don't have much faith at this point in your being able to actually construct one.
>>928027 ..oh, and since you're confused about it: 'milliampere-hours' is a unit of measure you'd use for a *battery*, not a solar panel of any kind; it's a unit of measure with regards to *storage capacity*.
