Hello this seemed like the best board to ask. Does anyone have any idea whether this would support a 20 gallon aquarium? It would just under 175lbs filled with water, gravel, and ornaments. There maybe another 10 - 20 lbs in the shelves themselves.
Considering it is almost fully solid pine, the only issue I would see would be the thinness of the legs (if somebody where to hit their shoe hard enough) which I could compensate for by placing some cross bracing on sides. Would that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
1) If you only just bought it and it is broken, why not simply exchange it for another?
2) It is almost certainly gas but just incase could you confirm what fuel it uses?
3) Can you explain the nature of the fault? Are you unable to operate the mechanism in some way? Are you operating it but nothing is happening? If it uses a piezoelectric sparker is that not producing a spark? If it is gas fuelled then is gas issuing from the valve when you operate the mechanism? You'll be able to see escaping butane as a ripple in the air or smell it
I've recently gotten into a few projects that require the use of tools that I don't own, nor do I really have the proper space/safety equipment to set up (grinders, a welder, basic metalworking stuff). Would anyone here know if there is some sort of space that might have tools like this available for public renting/use? I've checked the local hackerspace (I live in Ottawa ,ON) but it caters mostly to electronics design rather than heavier stuff. I've also been using the machine shop at my university, but they're hesitant letting students... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello this is my first time posting here and I need some help.
I want to buy a book on vegetable/herb/fruit growing since its something I want to get into. Ideally it should be one huge tome full of everything I need but one introductory book + one advanced seems reasonable too.
I have tried googling some recommendations but have not found anything that I like, most books seem to be full of pictures but little useful information. Can anyone suggest anything?
I'm building shelves into a closet and wanted to find the studs. I found an old Stanley intellisensor 77-110 stud finder but it is not working so I opened it up and found the red and black wires were not connected. I tried to figure out where they go but no luck. Are there any electronic nerds out there to help me out? I have a soldering kit already
TLDR: where do I attach positive and negative wires?
They look like they're for a speaker or more likely a buzzer - the bit that goes beep when you find a stud.
Check the casing, shit grade buzzers are usually glued or moulded into the plastic so that the wires rip off when someone pulls the thing open. Might be marked with polarity, probably wont be. Try it one way around then the other if it doesn't work.
What are some flooring options for a mobile home? I was thinking of laminate but I read online that because a mobile home never settles, it could become uneven and laminate could snap or break if you step on certain spots that may be humped or bowed in.
What about those laminate planks that mimic laminate/hardwood flooring? Anybody here have experience with mobile homes? I just bought one for $15K and it has some nasty carpet.
I have a bunch (like 50) LI-ION cells I tore out of defunct / damaged drill batteries (which I've been calling makita cells) and I'm wondering about testing them. I want to be able to graph their discharge cycle and record their true mAh.
First thought about this was have a constant current (or do I need a constant voltage?) load and use an arduino to record the voltage and time, and put it into a csv or something I could graph nicely
However looking online, I've seen things like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lipo-Battery-Cellmeter-Balance-Discharge-Capacity-Internal-Resistance-Checker-/271906393076

I'd go with the buying option. If I'm not mixing stuff with Li-Po, discharging this stuff yourself can be dangerous both to you and the battery. Go and buy something which has protection circuits built in, so that you can leave the thing to discharge and do whatever. I've seen many chargers/dischargers that warn you about leaving them unattended as they don't stop working by themselves and rather overcharge / overdischarge the cells.
>>922745 Protection circuits can be bought from ebay or aliexpress. I have a load of 18650s I've pulled from laptop batteries, if you're looking for a cheap and relaible battery tester I highly recommend the liitokala, I got one and it works fantastic.
To make a long story short, the bathroom floor in our house of 9 years is really fucked up and we need to replace it, my point of concern for now is on the toilet pipe ring (the dirty red ring, sorry i don't know much terminology) i need to know if this red ring around the pipe in the pic is still usable or if it would be smart to replace it.
I'm starting to paint devices that I will be using in moderate levels. That means this mouse and an Xbox One controller for my laptop(and in a month or two a computer case). I just want to know how many layers of clear coat should I use to improve durability(or whatever procedures should I do)?
The guys I see on videos on youtube just use one layer of clearcoat and I don't feel it will last long if I did only one. I also don't know how adding a bunch of layers would affect the paint job.
>>921623 The only kinds of cheap mix & match gears are the tiny plastic injection-molded ones. All the others cost a lot of money--assuming you can even find someplace that will sell in small quantities.
If it is at all possible, switch your design to using cogs and roller chain. This is still a strong positive connection and is way cheaper than gears.
Litter boxes, cat facilities areas thread? -how many cats share the box? -What kind of box do you use? -size? -what kind of litter do you prefer? -how often do you scoop the poop? -how often do you completely replace the litter? -what do you do to keep odors down? (aside from the obvious "keep it scooped out")
I'll start: When I first got my cat, I noticed she'd pee over the side of the box (it was a smaller box, not very deep) so after some research I decided to make a box that forced her to get IN the box (rather than "hover"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I bought two pairs of boots online: One is supposed to be a 9W and the other one a 10. I'm normally a 9.5, they didn't have that size in stock.
The 10 is definitely too large, I can feel my foot move around too much. The 9W fits perfectly except when I walk in it the top part/welt starts creasing and digs into the top of my foot. Its a bit annoying when it does it, I can feel it on top of my foot every time the shoe flexes.
Should I try to stretch out the 9Ws until the vamp "flexes" more or opens up? Like I said the problem is that the vamp... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't know where to ask for pointers about this. I'm having a bit of a problem with this room. This used to be a bedroom but it's now being used to throw shit in. It has been getting worse for years. I keep procrastinating instead of sorting shit up there.
How should I go about cleaning all this mess? There's a lot of shit there, from the top of the pile, a 32" LCD TV, a 20" standard TV, a piano, computers, computer monitor, a complete home stereo system, arcade machine and all kinds of electronic junk. I was into electronics but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Let me 'Reaganize' this for you(bullet point it out): - You want to change a room fm storage to utility. - fixing and storing a bicycle.
Things are stored there that haven't been used, some ever. - Decision time: Keep the stuff, or not? - If keep, figure out a way to store it. - If not, sell it or donate it to charity. > I don't know the word 'skip'. I hope this at least gets you underway. When I clean a room, I always leave a flat 1ft x 1ft area near the door. If something is supposed... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
