Was just recommended and then asked to interview for a job that requires 1 year soldering experience and experience with simple electronics. I have minimal experience with the subject, yet the job perks have inclined me to interview anyway.
Tl;dr how do i act like i know what im talking about when it comes to soldering?
Hi, /diy/. I watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXePz7HJLgo&oref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DuXePz7HJLgo&has_verified=1
I felt this was pretty clever, but you can only use this technique in the day. Thinking about how to emulate this method, I figured the fastest way to do it would be to hook alligator clips to a filament (I was thinking of the bow-tie gum wrapper trick) and then touch the ends outside the cup to a battery.
My concern is the filament, however. Is there a cheap, easy to find material perhaps at a hardware... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

wanting to get a Picture off of my MS Windows 10 avatar picture for my log in.
the file appears to be (.accountpicture-ms) which cant be converted or opened in anything other than windows explorer. But it's a picture? or two pictures in different formats I'v heard?
Im wanting to use the picture for a social media picture.
I ran into a post that may have an answer but OP just assumes you know what file stream is and that you know how to fluently code. I just want a fucking picture... why'd microsoft have to go and make it impossible?

>>922451 The Preview feature you see in windows explorer is a jpg,png,bmp, etc photo viewer, the file is none of those. You may see .jpg typed at the end, but that was my own edit trying to edit the extension to a jpg but as you can see by the files properties that it had no effect, yes I when into my folder settings and clicked the option to view file extensions in file name, thats what i tried to edit but only resulted in failure.
Any ideas how to get an old commercial drain open? I've tried both a 25' snake and hot water with no luck. It's in an old bar so there could be anything in there. I'm thinking it's food, broken glass and plastic straws are blocking the pipe. Pic unrelated.
like what an underground drain? if its not underground you strip it down and clear it out. if its underground you get a drain rod with a big rubber flappy disk on the end that fills the pipe then you pump it in and out of the drain acting like a kind of plunger but with a 2-3 ft stroke length. keep a hose running to wash the shit away. pump until it loosens out to travel further down and become someone elses problem.
>>921991 Would that work to clear out any plastic or glass that is stuck in there? It's an old building with metal pipes so I don't think strong acids would be a good idea. >>921994 It's underneath the bar so it's in a pretty cramped space. Never seen one of those things in any hardware store either. I'm considering getting something like pic related. Anyone have experience with them?
Good evening /diy/. It's my second time i'm here. Long story short, i've become really into diy recently. Yeah, i soldiered some wires but it makes me wanna puke when i have to go get that propably older than me soldering tool coz it's broken AF. I want to buy some must have equipment (wires, gun etc.) and spend less than 40 bucks. I was thinking about aliexpress thus im a patient guy. What are your thoughts?
>>921178 Thanks for the list! I did some checking and cleaning in my garage. Could You recommend me some soldering station up to 20€ or should i save for something more expensive? If so what's the min. price? What should i look for?
Hello good people of /diy/!! I was hoping you could help me with my crossover needs. I am trying to make a high pass filter for my two way speakers system in my living room. I have a bunch of old audio equipment that I can tear into for parts (resistors, caps, etc.) Although I have very limited knowledge on what to use. I was hoping some of you could point me in the correct direction to make an "in line" high pass filter for my tweeter. Any help will be appreciated.
>>924928 You'll probably want a lower cutoff frequency of around 1.3k, so a resistor of 12k and a cap of 10nF should get you close. Check out http://www(dot)electronics-tutorials(dot)ws/filter/filter_3.html for more details.
A LPF to protect the high end would be a good idea too. For a cutoff of 20kHz, a resistor of 800 ohms and a cap of 10nF will do.
I chose 10nF because it is a fairly common component, then chose the resistor based off that capacitor since they are much more plentiful. When you get your components,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/, not really sure if this is worthy of making a thread about, but you fags are the only people who seem to know their shit when it comes to this sort of stuff.
Anyways I was hoping you might be able to help me with something. I'm trying to make a little, nearly impossible to stumble upon, hidey hole. So far my idea is (See included pic for a visual reference) that I can unscrew the bottom of a recessed cabinet, then cut into the drywall and then patch up the hackjob and reassemble everything. However as someone who has never done any carpentry, I really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>922070 That really does not help with my problems at all, I need long term storage, and assurance that it will not be discovered easily (as some horseshit like a fake faucet or socket would) by any of my co inhabitants. I am not interested in petty dollar store tricks for warding off burglars.
Hey /diy/, the restroom at work is open to the general public and lots of customers use it. There's a penny in the corner, it's completely unnoticeable unless you're sitting down. The girls clean the restroom daily, but haven't mopped it up or anything, it's been in there a couple weeks now.
I want to take a nicer coin, like a Susan B. Anthony or a Sacajawea and glue it to the floor in that corner. What's the /diy/ approved glue? Something that'll keep it stuck their forever if possible.
>>920181 i've been told CFM is the most important for most tools. that one is only 2CFM while most impacts i've seen take at least 4 CFM. also other tools like grinders quickly jump up to like 10 CFM and at that point you're getting into $1000 compressors.
maybe i'm just missing something but it seems like these tools take way too much air for what they do.
Whats the difference in harassing wind vs solar energy? I would imagine that wind turbines needs more maintenance and do not have as high of longevity when compared to solar. I believe this because of moving parts. Or am I wrong because the Sun Lord burns your panels and wires and batteries
Anyone here ever volunteer with Habitat for Humanity? I'm in my second year studying Mechanical Engineering and I feel like I'm not doing enough with my life to be the best me and differentiate myself from my peers. Also I feel like I could learn some very useful skills. Do you think it's worth it?
