I am a fa/tg/uy, but I make stuff when I can. This is my most recent project. It's tokens for D&D. I used a one-inch hole punch, one-inch steel washers and some epoxy resin to dome the other side. They have nice weight to them and they seem durable.
My question is this:
>What would be the best way to make reusable maps for D&D so I can use my tokens?
Let's get a tabletop game thread going. What have you built? Terrain for 40k? D&D maps and minis?
I made a 1" grid with simple graphics software (ms paint will not be enough for this), to a big enough size to suit my playing surface, took a PDF file of it to my local office supplies store that offered large format printing, and then had the printed sheet laminated straight after at the same place. Staples, OfficeMax and FedEx Kinko should all offer these services. Chessex has several sizes of reusable gaming mats with both square and hexagonal grids, too, and in all honesty, would cost less than making your own.
>>926277 I have one of those routers. What exactly can you do with it when pirate-box is installed? Can you use the thing to share a wired internet connection like you can with the original firmware? That's the only thing keeping me from putting it on mine is that I use mine for wired to wireless internet at hotels without messing with settings.
>>926277 Do you actually go to "leet hacker secret base" ype places where you'd use this thing? >>926286 I never understood the concept of a "pirate box" other than it's potential use for pedos to meet up at a starbucks and share their pornography.
Hey, /diy/. Though I haven't plucked the engine out of the Windsor and onto a stand yet, I've been keeping myself busy while I wait on getting a hoist. I just managed to remove both the intake and exhaust manifolds, and exposed the covers to what I guess is the valve train. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was totally free from rust, but upon closer inspection, I noticed that one of the valves is stuck open.
I'm not sure what to think of this. I gave the valve a couple light taps with a rubber mallet, but it didn't seem to move, so I guess... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello /diy/. The concrete floor in this corridor sinking, it's placed directly under compacted earth. I already opened everything and re-concreted 2 times but it keeps sinking. What should I do? The earth is very compacted and I'm not sure what is causing it to sink.

I want to get into making armor and such for cosplay purposes. Im good with papercraft and can carve foam decently, but my biggest obstacle would be preserving my creations. How do I make them hard? I don't mean invincible, just something to make them more plastic like.
Whenever I ask the question, I get a million different answers. "Oh use Bondo!" "Use fiberglass!" "Papermache it!" "Use this 50/50 mixture!" So which is the best? I guess I'm more interested in how to make foam (styrofoam, spray foam, etc) last rather than... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you have the budget, worbla or a similar thermoplastic would be good for finishing the props. If you have the know how maybe filling the underside of the workpiece with foam or something for stability and vacuum forming ABS to use as a mold. A basic vacuum forming set up is fairly similar to diy
Hello /Diy/ i really love guitars , i am not that of a good player , but i really like comparing , testing , checking out etc . i saw a few projects on youtube the other day and decided to take up a new hobby but the thing is , i have little to no experience in this field , neither do i have any tools . >what tools do i need ? >what tips would you give ? >what should i watch out for ? id really love to build an electric , not a big fan of acoustics / classics
Neck angle, neck pocket depth, fret placement, pickup placement, and bridge placement are the absolute most critical parts. You could make the most beautiful guitar in the world, but if those are wrong it'll sound or play like shit. It will be garbage and a waste of your time and money. Lmii sells fretboard blanks, but also offers a shop service for cnc slot cutting at custom scale lengths. I would assume at this point you understand what scale length is, what it effects, and how important it is. If not do a lot more research. The big thing about wood, once it's cut... Comment too long.

I'm building a SFF PC using an AMD APU. While the PC itself is simple enough, one of the features I'm trying to build into it is an LCD screen attached to an Xbox 360 controller that lets you play your games and stuff on that little monitor.
The monitor: http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-inch-800x480-Touch-LCD-Screen-5-Display-For-Raspberry-Pi-Pi2-Model-B-A-S3-/381299675603?hash=item58c73b51d3:g:2QMAAOSwDNdVgtc1 The clip to hold the monitor to the 360 pad: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nyko-Xbox-One-Smart-Clip-Smartphone-Mobile-Phone-Harness-for-Xbox-One-Controller-/351377889992?hash=item51cfc11ac8:g:1J0AAOSwpDdVeHDq
The problem is how I execute the idea for the most convenience. There are two ways I can accomplish this:
A) Stream the video from the PC to the screen as a client device. I can strip a Steamlink down to the board and connect it to the LCD via HDMI, then build a case around the boards to enclose them into one unit. This sounds a lot like Nvidia's Shield Portable, but that thing only works with Nvidia video cards, and I'm using an AMD APU. Drawbacks: Will have to work with Steam's Streaming service, will need to connect the Steamlink to AC power, requires wifi, input lag.
B) Treat the LCD as a monitor and run an HDMI cable between it and the back of the PC. Drawbacks: The LCD and the PC will be connected to each other by HDMI and USB cables.
Any folks with ideas? I'm thinking of doing B and just dealing with the cables, but I'm trying to see if there is a better way.
The Steamlink is small enough to hide behind a 5 inch screen fortunately. However, I'd have to run the power cable into it because I don't have any experience with wiring batteries. I heard that for what it does, the Steamlink works great as a streaming device but there is a lot of added complexity with using Steam's streaming service and I don't want to be using so much of the wifi's bandwith from streaming games.
Either way, it looks like I'm gonna have to deal with cables for this project, unless there is another way for video data to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
