My Dad died a couple weeks ago. I'm his only child so I'm getting his stuff, and today I got his necklace. He had this necklace from when he went to Mexico, supposedly it's gold so I want to sell it, since I don't really have any emotional connection to it. He always wore it, and he had it on when he died. Unfortunately, wasn't found for a few days, so he decomposed a bit.
Now his necklace is all black and tarnished and covered in, I assume, products of him decomposing. I still have it in a medical specimen bag and I'm not gonna take it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>916056 CSI fag. No really, I'm a CSI fag. Anyway as a body decomposes the body and fluids become acidic. So that burned appearance is from a chemical burn. I would also expect the acid to etch or eat away some of the gold. So what do? First you need to make sure it is no longer a bio hazard, so wash it in a 10% bleach solution and scrub it, wear a mask so you don't inhale that stuff. If it still has a odor then Lysol I would take it to a jewler to sell as scrap. Sorry about your dad,
>>916255 >>916256 Another simple pocket hole jig is to get a scrap of wood and guess-and-check the angle until you get it right. It won't last forever, but it'll do a few holes with a somewhat decent degree of accuracy. Best part of it is it's free, so you get what you pay for. But if you have some scrap wood laying around, it'll do decently. Hardwood works best, anything soft and it's likely to get too much play in it through repeated use in a very... Comment too long.

>>916256 >>916255 Personally I'd still go for the full sized kit w/ everything so you can actually make consistent holes and stuff easier. Trust me on this. I used one back in HS for a little rifle crate/display box and it made things really simple, fast, and not shit. I've been thinking of actually building some shelving and a table myself and it's one of the top things I need to pick up before I get started, it made it just that much easier.
Hello people. I bought this switch long time ago from Ebay and im planning to use it but I cant understand how I should install it to the place where I want to put it... it would be logical to screw the surface between two parts but top doesnt come off? Anyone can help?
>>916000 its identically same size as the top ring that doenst come off.. I dont understand how I can screw it to the panel that way. I have other that is like this and its 100% clear how to install it because everythign comes apart :)
I want to get into microelectronics? Where should I start? How do I get into amateur engineering? I have a math/CS background (including logic and programming), and no serious experience with either electronics or engineering.
>>915031 >I have a math/CS background unbelievable as it sounds computing and electronics apparently do not mix. i do embedded systems and i have people tell me every fucking day how they do computing and they don't get electronics or they do electronics and they can't wrap their heads around software. electronics is pretty much redundant nowadays. if by microelectronics you mean connecting a few SOC's together then what do you need to learn its basically lego. if you...

>>915092 CS has nothing to do with electronics, it's basically a math degree with some programming. >>915058 This. Especially this line >if you want to properly learn anything about electronics then go to a library and find the oldest dustiest smelliest book about electronics on the shelves and read it.

I will use the money I saved to get a land and leave the "civilization", build some "organic" house and live there until I can. What should I learn? I don't want to die in the middle of nowhere, just try to rethink the way I am used to live... I cannot fight against the system, but I can make my own life.
>>914762 I've got a Stanley that takes those and I find it to be more trouble than it's worth. Changing or flipping the blades is a pain in the ass, the slider button is unpleasant and the blades wiggle/rattle. Because of that, I always end up passing over it for a pocket knife or something else.
I'm pretty set on a breakable blade knife or two, just wondering if there are others I should consider before NT Cutter.
is somewhat valid but you need to make sure to not buy shit blades. the olfa cutters all come with good (enough) quality blades but if you just go down to the hardware store and buy whatever dime bin shit it wont be worth anything. Those titanium coated blades sound gimmicky but they actually work rather well... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi i want to make honey Mead but not as usual, the idea is make a 5-8% alcohol beverage with a perfect foam on top (like beer). I'm thinking in use lecithin soya to make this possible, any suggestions?
Some old recipes http://realbeer.com/spencer/Digby-recipes/
>>914406 if you want foam, add carbonation. allow to finish fermenting = no more bubbles/a bubble every hour or so, siphon and add a little more sugar/honey to ferment a little more and carbonate. Or use a diy sodastream or dry ice when bottling.
Hi /diy/ I'm interested in brewing my own alcohol that is pretty much only ethanol and water because that will get you drunk without a hangover. I've figured that if I use sugar and water only the alcohol will be more pure, are there other ways to purify the alcohol other than distillation and activated carbon?

Some friendly suggestions for posting: - First ask Google, then ask /diy/. Your question will probably be better received if you do so. - List available resources (tools, materials, budget, time, etc.) - Try to use pictures and explain the goal, if possible - Be patient, this is a slow board; your thread will be around for days. - Share your results! /diy/ loves to see problems solved and projects completed!
Hello /diy/ I'm currently staying at a dormitory and next month we're moving to an apartment with my roommate. We rented the apartment and the papers we signed implied that there was a wardrobe near the entrance. However there wasn't. Instead of removing that line, the landlady (nice woman) gave us an allowance of $250 (approx.) to buy or build a wardrobe. She's gonna check the bills and pay us accordingly.
I've made an authistic drawing of the space that we're gonna place or assemble the wardrobe. The brown area is the space for the wardrobe,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Will you be able to make a built in wardrobe? That should be much easier, your first step should be to attach a frame around the alcove (2x2 should be enough). Next depends on whether you want to split it or keep it as one large wardrobe.
If you can supply pictures I could give you a simple sketch (how you want to do it will depend a little on details)
>>915617 Moreover I'd say you need a saw (what kind depends on choice of material (I wouldn't cut sheets of plywood with a hand saw and expect it to be straight but I suck at sawing)). A level is a bit of a must. A hammer or screwdriver (protip, screwdrivers require less skill (don't laugh, it's true) but some might prefer the flat head of a nail for aesthetics (there's also nailguns and jointing but for a simple and cheap solution I think those are out.
>>915375 5 to 10K. Most of that cost is tiny appliances and the trailer the house sits on. ( needs to be on a trailer to pass through legal loop holes in most states). The biggest cost is having a place to put it. You're either going have to squat, find a trailer park, or find some land with utility hook ups.
