Hey /diy/ :) Looking for a practical method of cleaning these seashells - pic related. I want the one on the right to look like the one on the left - I assume its jadeness / discolouration is a result of some sort of chemical reaction with the salinity of the water - obviously its a bit scratched up, so it's not going to look EXACTLY like the one on the left, but I just want something to bring out the colour and disolve excess scrub. I have tried using a file already and found it just disintegrates the shell completely. Looking for something a bit more efficient,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
before peroxide, soak in citric acid and baking soda in alternate sessions to get rid of anything that is caked on the surface, then peroxide, that will give you a good surface, but if it is rough by nature, there is no way you can make it like right without heavy sanding and polishing
>>926846 I figured out when I was filing it down that the colouring is just on the outermost layer of shell, that is, too serious a file/sand/grind/scour will probably just remove the colour clean off. I really like the idea of polishing though, what material should I use?
>>926448 >writing a novel >no character stats >not rolling for success Anywhere from 30 seconds to fuck it, I quit. Typically a locksmith will make a magic show out of it, errecting a curtain and everything. A nigger will just kick the door in. And anywhere requiring a door that a single nigger can't kick in will use locks that can't be simple picked in 15 minutes.
Hey guys. I'm thinking of starting my own cig making business. I started rolling my own cigs and I'm not bad at it. I'd like to keep them fairly clean like american spirits but still addictive to get customers hooked on them. What do you suggest? I realize vaping is kinda putting cigarette companies out of business but I'd still like to try
I've used X10 technology to do stuff like that. you need a USB-X10 interface box, and X10 receivers in your lights, or the light switches, or sockets. however, it's a dying technology which is being replaced by something whose name i forget. see www.smarthome.com for examples.
With the 150A one you can use electrodes up to 3,2mm. With the 250 one up to 4mm maybe 5 if they dont have a thick flux. It also depends on the type and brand what amperage they need to be run on. You will be more limited with the 150A, but if thats good enough for what you want to weld, then get the 150 one and save some money.
Are they DC or AC?. I prefer AC runs smoother, no arc-blow,
check the duty-cyle. The 250 will probably have a higher one. meaning you can weld for a longer period of time with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>914923 partly it's because you suck, but mostly it's because your welder is the cheapest AC buzzbox that can be bought, these turds literally cannot keep a 6011 lit, and that's assuming you don't overheat it trying to arc up.
Hey /diy/, so I got rid of my 110 stick welder a while ago (century 70) and upgraded to a mig welder. Problem is it's that I can't practice very much becuase the price of flux core wire. So I devised this. Since the tip is always electrically hot, I decided to clamp it to the work piece and stick a rod in the ground clamp, thus making the polarity positive on the electrode side. It works pretty well with 3/16 6013. But I now have a bigger goal. I looked at a guide to make this particular welder dc, and ordered the part( black finned this with wires) to make it dc....

>>926780 Buddy it's all depends on what you're making. If you're making a housing for a device that's as big as a TV or a microwave, you can go with wood, since its secure long lasting relatively light. If you're making something the size of a cell phone wood would be bulky. maybe use aluminium sheets if you know how to shape them. these are somewhat sturdier and look more solid but are a bitch to put together if you cant weld. If your set on plastics, use a polyester resin and fiberglass and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>926806 I didn't want to be too specific and have people bag on me. I want to eventually make a bluetooth solar interior lighting system w/ app for entertainment lighting. I plan on using those new flat LED styling lighting. I'm keen on plastics because I want to be able to remold and remodel new designs if the first doesn't work.
I've never worked with fiberglass or any resins before, what tools would I need? I also plan on making my own cosplay gear this year so I'm building a small... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I am thinking of following this guide for making latex balloons which seems easy and is detailed enough except for one fucking thing. What kind of fucking latex I need.
Seriously it just says liquid latex (a pre vulcanized mix) and I cant seem to find it on any online store, or anywhere really. Even asking the question in any search engine seems to not give a concise answer.
Is this a conspiracy? Or am I just retarded?
oh and this is the guide I am looking at if anyone wants to point out flaws/problems with it.
I have a pair of very strong torsion springs that I could probably only get 1 turn out of, they are about 1" diameter. I also have a "rope" (for the sake of simplicity) that I need to move 3 feet with a little bit of spring assist. Is there any simple way to turn high torque low movement action into high movement low torque action when dealing with springs?
What I am thinking of doing is in essence a miniature garage door, but I think garage door torsion springs spool a lot more times than once, don't they?
>>927088 Put the spring on a rod that will be secured at both ends. Secure one end of the spring to something solid to keep it from rotating, and secure the other to a wheel that turns on the rod. Size the wheel such that it gives you the torque and movement that you want. Secure the rope to the wheel.
I've only seen industrial doors being worked on . But if you look at your garage door spring you'll see it has paint on it probably in a corkscrew fashion. Before its tensioned that paint is in a single straight line along the entire coil. They'd count their quarter turns and usually it be around 40 or more. So roughly 10 or more full rotations.
Just something I picked up driving the gdoor guy around on an order selector. But we're also talking like 30x30 doors.

>>927094 also keep in mind that for these the privacy will exist only for the darker side of the glass. If it;s night and the inside is illuminated better than outside, it will be hard to see out from the room but easy to look into the room.
Hello there. So i'm working on an autonomous hexapod and I need a gps, an ultrasound or a camera and some module to ensure communication between the hexapod and the laptop. I'm working using and arduino. I'd really appreciate your suggestions on the matter. The cost plays a major role but I won't go too cheap
>>926842 What kind of communication? Telemetry? Video? Commands? What interface are you using to connect to Arduino and laptop currently? Also what terrain? You could achieve everything with a simple 2.4GHz WIFI or RF link.
