Thread for knitting/crochet/or anything fibre or textile related. What do you have on your needles/hooks/arms/etc.?
Right now I'm powering through knitting a hat for a friend. I dunno if I'll get it sent to her in time for Christmas though. It's kind of last minute, I wasn't planning on knitting presents until I found out my local yarn place had a sale one.
I ended up finishing the hat last night, I wanted to spend today weaving ends in and blocking so I can have it mailed by either today or next Monday. Probably won't make it to her by Christmas but oh well
Hi I have a cheap pair of sweatpants and the seam on one of the bottom legs is starting to go I want to know how I can keep the bottom leg stretched open while I do the sewing and I'd also like to review how to finish off the stitch since I'm not very good at that.
>>921235 >gets mad when someone asks for direction on how to DIY >on a DIY board You are right, some people are useless. >>920947 Just tie the stitch back on itself. If you fuck up, repeat until it's right.
The thing with this is that I need to keep the elastic stretched to it's maximum length while I do the sewing. Sewing is already a two-handed job, so I was wondering if anyone has tried this before.
>>921306 >Just tie the stitch back on itself. If you fuck up, repeat until it's right. That's what I've been doing when I've sewed stuff before. It sometimes comes undone, so I thought I was doing it wrong.
Is there a special trick to finding a replacement drill chuck key? Lost the one for my drill press (an inexpensive, tallish China model with a 19mm chuck.) Lost years ago, have never been able to find a replacement, but that said I'm not sure how they're sized. Seems like there should be a standard diameter of at least the key end, specified, so that you can get an exact match, rather than just buy-and-try like pic related.
>>922312 Thanks. Assume by aperture you're referring to the max drill bit size it can hold. I'd always suspected there was a chart like this with chuck key numbers, but have never seen one, so thanks for that.
I'll order one of these quad tools and see how it goes.
>>922308 Years ago, a buddy gave me a bench top drill press. I bought the same universal chuck key pictured. the teeth on the chuck are too worn. So I use two adjustable pliers to change bits. Just too cheap to fix it.
Replacement chains are available for almost every price you would want to pay, just spend a second searching.
A more DIY option would be taking this time as an oppoturnity to learn some basic whip-making braids and braid up a leather "chain", though you will still end up buying leather or leather thongs plus hardware.
Or never ever have a wallet on a chain again, because for fucks sake you are not in a biker gang.
>>921612 Breakers don't flip very far when the pop. Your pic looks like a 220. Check the single 110 breakers, most likely a 15 amp. That if you're on an American AC system. Try to label them as you figure them out for next time. By checking, I mean flip them off, then flip back to on.
Hey diy i never come to useful parts of 4chan, but im a young renter and we have a big roof leak that was fixed and 2 weeks later came back much much worse. What do? >hole poking out of ceiling >ceiling sags >wall have big brownish spots of dicoloration >carpets gross
>>920845 Seeing as you probably got something from the 70's, thats probably been rewired and fucked with by god knows how many owners, gut it and re do it.
Now, that decision depends on how complicated your system is, if its a motor or sail boat, how much you want your electrical system to do for you, what you want to use the boat for, etc.
I found wire nuts wrapped in electrical tape, no labeling whats so ever, solid strand wire, a battery bank in a location where condensation dripped onto the terminals and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello Guys, i've recently put my hands on an old laptop screen which LCD was broken, and used the LED backlight to make a Light Panel (my girlfriend is into drawing, i've made it so she can use it to draw using transparency....)
anyway, now i'm trying to dim it using a NE555P, but whatever i'm trying, it's not working... most of the time i'm getting an "On/Off rotary switch-like" reaction from potentiometer...
i haven't used any MOSFET since i've left the circuit board on the backlight, nor any diodes, i'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
that is not the correct way to do a PWM using a 555. if you want to use pin 5 to do PWM, then you set up up the 555 as a monostable, and feed it external pulses into pin 2 using another 555 or whatever.
if you wanna use a single 555, then you follow the standard way of doing it, using 2 diodes and a pot on pin 2. google it.
afternoon folks! I've been doing a lot of projects that require the use of a respirator and have decided to invest in a reusable one (where you replace the filters) as opposed to the inexpensive one time use masks. I've been trying to do some research but I'm still not sure I'm making a good decision. Rather than try to talk to the folks at the home goods stores, I figured I'd come here first for recommendations on both what kind of respirator would be good for me as well as a good market to purchase it from.
From what I've read, all manufacturers... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>920446 every box of filters i ever bought had a table on the back showing the protection levels required for pretty much any activity the finer the filter the more it will protect you, but if you buy a really fine particulate filter and then use it for something that doesn't produce really fine particles it will just clog up really quickly and you will have wasted money on a filter you didn't need. so sometimes its better to buy a couple to cover the different jobs you need to do.
closest store to me only does one kind of filter anyway and its cheap so i just use whatever, as long as i can't smell anything and my boogers are green instead if black at the end of the day i'm happy.
>>920446 Prolly you have somekind of specs in your country. Just read the labels and you'll find the correct level of filtration. And if you buy a cheap one it might not be that comfy. We have a chain called biltema and though it has the same specs as my M3 the M3 kicks ass as it is so much nicer to use for longer periods. Costs 5 times more though.
one of my peers whom I was speaking with on the subject said that his beard factored into the effectiveness of the mask too. Is there a way around that, short of shaving? In the type in the OP pic, it seems that any longer facial hair would allow particles into the mask.
how strong are shipping containers when they stand verticaly? how unstable would it be if you had two 40ft ones stacked on top of each other? because if it was relatively easy, you could make a super badass tower pretty cheap.
