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...

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.

Not so easy is it?

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.

also, depending on the pipe material, some strong acids could work

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.

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.

>>924914
All you need is a resistor and a cap and calculate the cutoff frequency. What frequencies is your tweeter rated for?
>>
1,200hz to 20k
>>
>>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,...

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.

Because you're shopping for the wrong type, that's for a shop setting where you have several tools. Try looking on Amazon for whatever you tool is rated at for a small one. Like 50 bucks.

I'm talking out of my Ass but this is what I've gathered from using pneumatic tools at work and having to turn the compressor on and off. Should be true to a point

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.
