Umm, you just buy treated timber posts. Ones rated for sinking into the ground. Unless you're set on milling your own trees to make the posts, just buy the right fucking timber by asking the people at the hardware store for fence posts.

I'm looking to stablize a flat platform using 4 motors, what sensors should I use? I'm using an arduino, is it safe to assume a couple of accelometers will do the job?

You can get a 6 axis accelerometer (often called a gyro but it's not) on a single chip.

Then you need a servo shield. Then you need to copy paste some code you can google.

>often called a gyro but it's not

But it is.

It's a 3-axis gyro and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same chip. Either way, yes, that's what you want.

Pretty good for soldering, haven't used it for anything else.
3 year warranty at 20€ per iron is a pretty good deal too.

Carefully place it in your closet or in the back of your desk drawer, let it sit there for about 2 years before asking yourself "why did i even buy this thing?" then put it in your trash can.

If you didn't already have plans for it, then you'll never use it

Pedalboards have to stand up to quite a bit of force m8.
Sure pedals don't weigh much and you are certainly gonna be a ballet dancer gentle soul when stomping on your overdrive or wah pedal.

Until you get shitface drunk and start stomping on that shit like it's the nigger that stole your bike.

Wood is also no good. See wood looks nice but it's heavy, soft and soaks up beer, piss, sweat and blood and than radiates the stink forever.

So I built mine out of a sheet of aluminium. Bent the edges and held the thing together used big boy nuts...

Well, I am currently helping my partner make video for YT. I am doing much of the actual physical work. So I am currently learning about 5 point lighting, making a decent white screen/green screen, diy-ing some softboxes (for diffuse lighting),

We use Adobe Premiere Pro for editing and because we don't have good cameras we use our phones. One phone is the steady shot and the second is for close ups etcs.

Audacity for voice over work is good.

Always plan out your scene before hand.

Just look into good filmmaking practices. People expect quality...

Does anyone have experience with designing their own home security system? I don't have a huge budget and am not necessarily looking for anything sophisticated. Just something to prevent Home Burglary.

Experience? Not really.

But I'd like to talk about this regardless.
First up, could you be a little bit more specific regarding what you'd like to do here, basically the general scope of the operation.

Are you looking to basically just mix and match various purchased components? Would you like to fiddle about with electronics and build your own system from scratch?
You should clarify those sorts of things.

Then there's obviously the matter of budget and skills.

>>917606
>Just something to prevent Home Burglary.
That is not a security system then. All they do is alert someone when someone is breaking in. Maybe its an audible alarm to scare them off, maybe its a call to a monitoring agency, maybe its just alerts you. To keep it from happening you need things like bars, shutters, security doors, etc. A sensor on a window and a bell aren't going to 'prevent' anything as they only go off after it has happened.

whenever turned on it displays randomly changing numbers, occasionally stopping on something but then continues randomly changing numbers.

I opened it up and was greeted by what i would classify as gore. I dont know where to start. the display tube has an odd black spot on one end, i suspect that to be a burn mark of sorts. (pic2)

The board at the bottom has an odd wire going seemingly randomly. i have no fucking clue what that is supped to be. (pic3)

wat do?

That's a getter. It's not a problem.
I'd check the keypad and its wiring first and tried to clean it if it were filthy.
