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...

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,

Forgot to mention
As far as the odor goes.
Breath in through the mouth

are you sure it's actual gold? cause if it is, chuck it into some HCl. Gold is very unreactive, so the acid will eat whatever else is on it

Herro /diy/

I'm moving to a new house and I was thinking about building a bookshelf and a wardrobe. When I checked the internet, many builders are utilizing the pocket hole machine and it seems to work fine too.

Have you ever tried a pocket-hole machine?

Is there any way to do pocket holes without the machine? Like, with just a drill..

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...

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.

I'm looking at buying a couple of utility knives. I figure a large (18mm) and small (9mm) breakaway will do me for just about everything.

Looking at NT Cutter instead of Olfa because metal and failproof locking. Specifically, NT Cutter L2000R and Pro A1. Pic related.

Better suggestions?

>>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.

ive only ever used the olfa but ive used it a shitton for model making (yay architecture) and ive never felt a need to switch to anything else. the 9mm is just too small imho so i always use the 18

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...

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,...

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.

Has anyone priced out making a large sized "tiny house"? I'd rather live in a furnished shed aka tiny house than spend my money on a place to sleep.

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.

You aren't serious are you? Unless OP is a licenced plumber, electrician, and has access to free everything, it's gonna cost at least $25K.
