>>916243 Go CIF. Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) is a trade term requiring the seller to arrange for the carriage of goods by sea to a port of destination, and provide the buyer with the documents necessary to obtain the goods from the carrier.
Hey guys. I have to replace a few feet of supply line from the furnace to the house, and rather than spend a few hundred bucks hiring some company I figure I can rig it up myself even though I have no major ducting experience to speak of. Is it essentially just get a few feet of 14in insulated duct and clamping or taping both ends?
>>915343 You do need some proper duct tape on those exhaust tubes. Not the plastic duck tape, metal foil duct tape if you don't want to die from carbon monoxide. I don't think you'll need an insulated duct, but get liberal with the metal foil tape. The better you seal it air tight, the better the heat gets to where you want it. The tape won't hold it in place by itself.
>>915343 Pretty much. There's a reason there are Mexicans doing it for like $12 a hour. Definitely get DUCT tape, not duck tape. It drives me up a fucking wall when people call the Duck brand tape duct. Duck tape will usually last 2 years before it falls off, duct tape will last the life of the duct undisturbed, and Pookie will outlast the duct.
>>915297 looks like crap, dude. If you are going to pay $400-500 for the hardware to actually build your own Oculus Rift, you can probably manage another 50 to pay someone to 3d print a proper housing.
Anyone here familiar with Smooth-On? I've noticed occasionally when I'm using their moldstar 16 resin it turns opaque white, when normally it's clear. Does anyone know why this would happen? Pic related, how it turns white at the top (the top was exposed to air, if that might be relevant)
sup /diy/ I'm not very much into DIY but my dad is pretty handy. Is there any tool that I can get him as a gift that he isn't likely to have but will appreciate? He is a very pragmatic man, so he has most things in his toolbox already and doesn't think anything more fancy than that is necessary. Preferably something under $20, I'm poor and unemployed.
The nail holder in pic related is what I think I have in mind, more or less. Is it useful?
>>918592 Is this because of some DIY pride that implies you don't need one? Sorry, I have two left hands, I don't know these things at all.
But if it is because it's too cheap or pragmatic, then I don't think my dad will be insulted at all - if he finds any use for it whatsoever, he will appreciate it. How about something like this wristband? Do they actually reliably hold nails or what?
What does he do for a living? If he's pragmatic he'd appreciate tools for problems he may face on a day-to-day basis. You didn't provide any information and only showed pics of a couple of stupid gimmicks. i.e. if he were a carpenter he'd shove that nail holder up your ass sideways, or get laughed off his site showing up with a magnetic wrist band. That's what a tool belt is for. Need context.
Alright, so I just lost an auction for a large satellite dish I was going to convert into a parabolic mirror, and there probably aren't going to be any going up on auction for a while. Does /diy/ know any techniques for making one other than making a satellite dish shiny and chrome?
Pic unrelated, and probably not edible gummy candy.
First time here so I apologize if this is the wrong board to be posting my question. I'm a college student and I want to begin a hobby that I enjoy but can earn some extra money. I love to work with my hands and I've been looking at metal beads, tags, etc. From what I can tell, its basically called metal smithing or metal working. I want to begin making small little keychain or necklace things like pic related. What tools do I need in the beginning as an absolute amateur to begin? I can only think of the basics such as sandpaper and some type of saw. I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>is there some way around that. - If your AC control was all electronc, maybe possible (theoretically) to move it - but, where the fuck to? Has manual rotary dials, etc. - Nope, no way whatsoever - replacing your car for one with a double-din be fucking easier. >I have to settle for a single-DIN stereo? - Basically, Yes.
>>912780 - yeah, dropping an 'all electronic' e46 AC control a notch maybe possible - find me an(y) example where they have done so where previously manual rotaries (as pictured) were installed tho..
If the rotary controls are/were also a simply removable electronic panel (?) maybe possible. If the rotaries are controlling vents manually on stalks or some shit, I really, really would not be in any hurry to be fucking around trying to relocate these, personally. Not that the /diy/ electronic AC control relocation... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>908396 And now where are you, Father Eamonn Hunter? Working with pygmies in the South Seas. And where am I? On 4chan gloating about a crap idea that will fail once people start realising that throwing stuff at them is hilarious.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5PJDzOOFCA I've decided to learn it. What are the best resources to learn this language? My English is not the best but I doubt resources in Arabic exist for me to learn it.
I'm thinking of buying a bit of land and I want to build a small stone cottage/hut/shed to sleep in when I visit. Nothing too crazy inside; about five by three yards or so with a fireplace and a stove for heat/cooking, no electricity needed, a bed. Illumination would be provided by paraffin lamps and candles, maybe a generator outside if I really wanted electricity.
Now, I've had no experience whatsoever in building anything more than a wooden shed, so any points would be welcome.
