I want to do some work on a small dam or a large pond at the moment it holds water but only for a limited time i want to dig out the earth in there and line it with some river clay that i have access to i also only have a bobcat to do it with what i want to know is this like the clay thinkness and other ideas
>>915772 whut? so you want to dam a stream so you can line it with something else? if so you don't need a dam you need a diversion. that being a way to divert the stream from where you are working otherwise the dam resivor will fill and the dam will overflow in a matter of minuets/hrs whatever depends how much water and how tall your dam is. would nee pictures if you want moar mabie some topographic sketch or some such shenanigans
>>915772 I am confused but if I understand you correctly:
You have a pond. The pond has a creek feeding into it (inlet) and a creek feeding out (outlet). Assuming this pond is not a kangaroo breeding ground, you will not need any permits.
Step 1) assess kangaroo situation Step 2) get permit (if required) Step 3) dig trench from inlet to outlet around existing pond Step 4) build temporary dam at inlet and outlet to prevent water from entering pond, forcing it to use trench. Step 5) wait for unbearably... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>915472 You're kidding right? PU foam can break door frame out of wall if applied too generously.
Cement should be fine. It would contract if anything. Use more sand, to make the bulk of "passive". Still, without reinforcements (steel armature and sharp, hard rocks) it's quite fragile anyways. Maybe there are better options?
I'd look into just coating the inside of it with something more rigid.
I want to make an arcade stick without using any pre bought parts, this includes the joystick itself.
i have been toying around with this idea for the better part of 2 years, and i think its possible,
using cherry black switches as the buttons, and as the directions, i think i could get a decent setup for it and if i wanted to go a bit more advanced, a spring, wood, and stick could probably make a decent joystick, though it would look weird as fuck.
my issue is not knowing a damn thing about the Teensy and if it will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My old-ish TV (Sony KDL 40W-2000) has been making some buzzing sounds from behind lately, so I decided to remove the rear cover to have a look and give a good clean while I was there.
I was hoping to find something obviously wrong, but of course everything looks fine to my uneducated eye, it wasn't even that dirty despite being years since the last time dust was removed. I'm at a loss now, the TV works perfectly fine, but that barely audible buzzing sounds means something is wrong and it will get worse sooner... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Here is the part where the buzzing noise comes from, I am assuming this is some kind of motherboard.
Anyway, I can't pinpoint the exact origin of the noise, but it seems to come from the lower half. I was expecting some loose connectors or balls of dust clogging something, but everything looks fine and I'm not too much into electronics to identify all the things I'm seeing.
If you guys need additional pics or details, just ask.
I just want to understand if this looks like something fixable by myself or if there is some kind of additional... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
On an unrelated note, I was looking at this metal bar with 10 slots in there. I have no idea what are those white things inside each slot and they are all covered by transparent plastic film. Some of them have what looks like burning marks on the film though, what are they? How would I know if something is wrong in there too?
Keep in mind the TV has been repaired by Sony shortly after purchasing because of burned pixels and uneven patches of colours on the screen, so those marks may be leftover from the previous repair.
Any help? Should I just bring it to a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
People are stupid and afraid magnets with technology.
You are right, there is some concern for your speaker and compass. your phone will use your compass as part of an inertial navigation system while using the gps, so test to see if that still acceptably and that you can use the mic, speakerphone, and speaker acceptably.
>>917163 When the phone moves into and out of the magnetic field it can produce voltage spikes in the electronics. There are many factors involved. It really depends on the penetration of the magnetic field into your phone's electronics.
If the magnet is mounted on the car and the battery of the phone is right over the magnet when you take it on and off, there shouldn't be a problem. The battery pack inside the phone should protect the rest of the electronics from the magnetic field.
If the magnet is attached... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to eventually make my own music using chiptunes. How do I go about this? I don't even know where to start. What are some good resources? I'm guessing I should first start with emulation then move onto using hardware.
Has anybody else here than anything with chiptunes?
Hi /diy. this is my first post and i have one simple question : Would it be possible to get (let's say) 4 pc screen; and to assemble them into a bigger screen. The problem is the multiple controller cards; and how to wire it. I don't want to buy multiple pc monitors, and i can get screens like pic related for nothing. Any idea is welcome!
>>915954 what? No you don't. NVidia and ATI both do it. http://www.amd.com/en-us/innovations/software-technologies/eyefinity# AMD pushes it more/ Windows has done this since windows 95 for normal applications.
>>915659 You do know a new surround costs about a much as the duck tape you used to fix it right? Thats the bit that tore, the surround. They are replaceable. You make me sad. You fucked up a speaker and didn't even do it the right way. You could have at least tried to fix the surround the proper way and, even if you fucked it up, you would have tried and probably learned something. Instead you went full redneck/nigger rig on it. Thats not what /diy/ is about.
>>915416 Mineral oil is what most people use on wooden salad bowls or kitchen pencils. Don't use baby oil because there are fragrances and other crap added to the mineral oil. Mineral oil does not dry. And requires additional coats to protect the wood.
Another alternative is to use boiled linseed oil and allow it to dry thoroughly. Then use paraffin wax to coat the wood. Once dried the BLo is non-toxic and will harden the wood. The paraffin wax creates a nice smooth waterproof seal.
>>916723 By "new fans" do you mean like those dyson "bladeless" fan monstrosities with their ridiculous over 100% efficiency claims? Because they just have a normal bladed fan in the base that blows air up to the channels.
So,...it like uses 100% of the electricity is uses to push all the air the blades touch? Electric in and air out, nothing else is produced. How does that company measure that anyway? If it makes any motor noise, vibration, or heat at all then it isn't 100% efficient.
Hey /diy/, my friends and I are trying to fix this shocking game/toy thingy (its called Lightning Reaction Reloaded). Basically, we don't know what the fuck were doing. There's a black wire and a red wire that got disconnected and we don't know where to connect it back. Any help?
