Does replacing old dirt pads on a swamp cooler make it cool better? I just moved to a dry area so I'm not very experienced. Swamp cooler works great until it hits about ~105 degrees then it only makes the house tolerable. Will replacing them make it work better? The pads look pretty dirty so I'm planning to replace them anyway.
Hey /diy/, I want to make a small scale ghetto forge with what I have lying around.
So far I have: A Large Coffee can A Propane torch Steel tubing Some concrete
The place I work has pretty much every tool I need to work but I was having some trouble with the lining/refractory chamber part. Most forges I've seen or have researched use clay, ceramic wool or just plain steel, I was wondering if a coffee can with a cement lining, or mixture of cement and sand would work? I've heard some peopel saw cement is works but won't last long and other... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm in the market for a new jigsaw. I've always had corded, the one I'm currently using is an old Bosch D handle that is almost as old as I am but it's solid. It's only now that it's starting to show signs of age. I wont throw it out but I'd also like something that's cordless to make life on site a bit easier.
I have had battery jigsaws in the past but it was in the day before lithium batteries.
My question is not what brand to buy or what jigsaw, I'm going to match my current platform and the reviews I've read... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
it's not avaible in Europe and there are not real alternatives in the market atm, plus I need it to be 220v. I was thinking of just rigging something like a LiPoFe4 motorcycle battery and a 1000w inverter... thoughts/ideas?
I want to build a table. My Idea is to get wooden board, which should be as natural as possible. Then I wnat to maul(i dont know if this is the correct word for this but I assume) it in the middle. Afterwards I want to put it back together with resin and in which are LEDs. So my question is, if somebody has experience with resin and could give me some tips how to work with it and which i should take. I dont want he resin to be transparent, I would like it to be milky. But not to milky that the LED light cant get trough. Thanks in advance for the help
Pic related(it should approximately look like this just with the resin with the LEDs added)
I'm working on a crt monitor project which involves painting and customizations. This particular monitor has an indented logo that I want to remove / fill in to a smooth finish. Idk the specific type of plastic this monitor is made of , but I'm willing to bet it's abs plastic. What is the best way to fill this logo in? My research is coming up short.
I already know not to use Bondo because it's like fiberglass shit that will flake off over the plastic. I'm unsure if simply using any random epoxy will do. I've heard... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1013483 I happen to have both JB weld Quick Setting Epoxy (the 2-part syringe stuff) and JB Weld Plastic Repair Epoxy Putty. Are those good choices or simply "yeah it'll do its a monitor i dont give a fuuuuck"??
/mu/'s guitar general couldn't really help me so I hope this topic is appropriate for this board.
Anyway, I have a Gibson Les Paul with a chip on one of the corners of the headstock. The corner is supposed to be pointed. However, because of the chip, it appears chamfered and looks ugly up close. I don't have the broken piece anymore (bought it used for cheap)
What are some ways I can restore the headstock? I heard tinted super glue works with small surface chips but I'm not sure if it applies here.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1012942 You will have to rebuild the corner with bondo and then sand it down to shape and refinish it, or you can learn to live with it and treat it as "wear", personally I'd go with the latter as I find refinishing work to be a pain in the ass.
Go check out "Daves world of fun stuff" on YouTube, he covers a lot of this sort of stuff.
So attached is my little swamp cooler. The moist evap pad surrounds the fan intake and outputs coldish air. However it doesn't really work very well. I'd have to hold the thing, and point it at my face 3 inches away to really cool off. So I'm wondering if these thing can be altered to work better, or if you guys have a better idea for DIY car ac. What do you think?
>>1012974 There are holes drilled in the sides and back of the cooler. But there isn't enough intake, so I've been using it with the lid open and hoping that the pad surrounding the fan intake is enough. The fan itself takes in air from the sides and back.
I accidentally punched a gaping hole in my desk. It doesn't have to look pretty, but what can I do to get a nice flat surface again? A mouse pad goes over it anyways, so its mostly just to keep it level.
