Picked up this Bust at a car boot sale for £1 and i wanted to repair it, i've started to glue back what parts that were broken off, some are completely missing though. What's the best way to repair it?
Guys, I have a confession...I am hopelessly in love with my tools. No matter how shitty quality my tools are, I oil them, I sharpen them, I clean them up. I use needle files to sharpen wire cutter portions of pliers.
I take fine steel wool to take off surface rust as soon as it appears. I am constantly online shopping for more tools. I am insanely aware of moisture exposure and finger print oil for my tools.
Sometimes, when I'm not using my tools in a long time, I just take them out and look at them and give them a few movements to make sure they still work... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>926005 The proper technique is to get some new pads and super glue them to the board, then electrically bond them to the original traces. Then solder your new component down.
The ghetto way of doing it is to use an xacto knife to scrape some of the green solder resist off of the remaining traces, then solder wires to them, then solder your new SD card slot to the wires, then super glue the SD card slot on to the board. You can expect slower data rates though.
>>920852 depends what you mean by "hoverboard". if you're thinking about something on wheels, then it would be pretty easy. building something that would bend the laws of physics on the other hand would be difficult
So, my gate latch popped off. It's attached with these 4 bolts/screws. I have a power drill with a bunch of bits but none that seem to work. The bolts have this circular hole in the middle that extends most of the way through the center of the bolt and nothing is fitting in.
I also tried banging it in with a rubber mallet to no avail. Any ideas what type of bolt this is and what bit I would need for it?
Hey /diy/ I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience making plushies.
I'm making one for my friends birthday and it's of her favorite character. I'm using this other plushie as a reference and I want to make this "chibi" plush with similar sizes and what not. I have all the measurements and have been reading some things on plushie making but I also wanted to see if anyone here may have advice on making patterns or may even have a pattern that is similar to this.
What is this circular track stuff called? Its used for attaching fabric with stitched in plastic piping to rigid surfaces (among other things i'm sure). You slide the part of the fabric that has the plastic tubing in the side of the track. Haven't been able to successfully guess the correct google terms to find plain sections of this.
Suppose one wanted to charge a 100W battery bank from wind, solar, and a dc generator. Now I could probably use diodes to keep from charging my solar panels or turbines.
But the MPPT controller I'm using for my panels can be linked with other MPPT controllers. I think this would be ideal for ensuring my batteries aren't overwhelmed with multiple power sources simultaneously and my sources are safe.
My question is, could I use an MPPT charge controller for things besides solar? Like for an alternator, turbine, or dc charger?
Yup. That's the beauty of MPPT chargers: they convert anything you throw at it to a proper charging voltage
You are making however some blank or incorrent statements, so you really need to study more about this topic or have a professional install your system, or else I'm forecasting you'll zap your panels, controller or yourself.
Plenty of video tutorials and explanations on the YewTubes
>>925728 The only one I know of is the midnite classic 150 with a clipper which is EXPENSIVE. Most wind and hydro owners directly hook up a permanent magnet alternator direct to the batteries and use a voltage sensing controller to activate a relay. Look it up on missouri wind and solar. They have a few nice ones that you can program, which is needed since voltages can vary system by system and you need the set point slightly higher than your panels bulk charge so it wont interfere with the solar charge controller. Wind is a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm installing some L-track in the back of my jeep, and I have to drop some screws through the tub and weld nuts to the underside. The problem is the holes are lining up at the worst possible location, right into the bent section of a support piece for the tub. I already notched one out with a dremel as you can see but its kind of shitty and tedious.
I need to do 7 more of these, can you think of a better way than notching with a dremel? I thought about removing the whole piece but there are at least 20 somewhat large spot welds that I would have to fill in which... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Would rivnuts/nutserts be strong enough for this? These tracks are supposed to hold in a seat. 2 tracks per seat, 7 fasteners per 3 foot track. I would think 14 nutserts into 1 layer of 18ga sheet metal and 1 layer of slightly thicker metal would be sufficiently strong to hold a passenger in place, right?
So I bought this A-Ha tape that I found at a resale shop and when I got home I noticed that the little foam thing on the tape wasn't attached and was just floating around so I took it out of the tape What would be the best method of getting that back in there? Would super clue work or could I use tape or something to save me a trip from the store ?
>>925113 don't use super glue on foam, but any other glue would do, PVA, double side sticky tape, a world of kiddie diy is open to you. Also wtf are you doing with a fucking tape in 2015? Rhetorical question I'm going to bed, GL.
just find a sacrificial cassette and take it apart, remove the whole assembly with the foam and put it in the cassette you want to save and put it back together. I would be weary of using glue on it or anywhere near the tape itself. if you get glue on it, it will fuck up the head when it tries to play it.
and dont listen to this fuckstain >>925116 theres nothign wrong with having tapes in 2015+1. that guy is just mad because hes only 15 and has never had... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've fixed many of those but it's been so long I can't remember what I used. Generally superglue isn't good for porous stuff but it would probably work fine if it were used sparingly(not so much the pad would soak it up) Rubber cement would probably work fine. I've probably fixed them with wood glue even.
Don't try to take the tape apart, you're liable to do more damage than good.
>>922727 I'm not a troll, reviews on youtube and sellerS sayed it was quality tools so i searched just answers. They give good instructables. So you think velleman is shit for professionnal repairs, ok man i notice your answer.
>>922734 Velleman is best-known for electronics kits, it's all hobbyist stuff (they're also not the OEM). It might be OK for you, that's why I asked what you were going to use it for. Just don't expect the same performance as a Hakko/Weller/Ersa.
