Hello /diy/. This is my first post here so I apologize if this is a repeating thread. I've been wanting to get into woodworking lately but have no idea where to start. I'm looking up schools but they're out of state or they're online schools and have bad reviews. Where do you guys suggest I learn some basic wood working skills? Where did some of you wood workers learn from?

Schools for woodworking are if you want to be a professional cabinet maker or have a lot of time and money to waste.

Like any other skill, the best way to learn it is to just jump in. Get some books at your local library for technical info and watch some youtube videos for hands on info.

I learned in middle school wood shop. That was mostly safety oriented and machine operations.

>>914968
Youtube has hundreds of woodworking channels
Some focus on power tools and some focus on hand tools
What do you want to do specifically?

>I've been wanting to get into woodworking lately but have no idea where to start.

A decent table saw with a cast iron top and a solid fence is the absolute best way to start and will encourage you to be creative, have more fun, and raise your expectations when it comes to your own projects. I played around with wood for so long without one and it was tremendously frustrating not even having a way to make a dead accurate cut. I might have quit altogether.

You can get an old Craftsman on craigslist or what not for $200 or less though honestly sometimes they don't come with riving knives and that's bad news. Basically, just get a table saw with a riving knife.

I am making an autonomous drone.

Using the usual 4 brushless motors, 4 ESC, 1 Arduino, 4 ultra sound sensor and 1 drone (everything else like propellers and frame). Besides the spare parts, I am paying around 100$.

I plan to use it indoor so it move around the house avoiding walls and obstacles. It won't have stabilizer, which is why is going to be used indoor.

Its my first time building a drone, and my second time working with Arduino.

I am throwing this out there in case somebody can point out some major fault or something.

It is pretty...

What the fuck do you mean it won't have a stabilizer?

Ultrasonic sensors suck. Changes in air temperature and humidity result in different distance values. They have crazy sidelobes and echos can cause them to do weird things.

Why don't you get it working in simulation first?
V-rep has a simple to use quadcopter simulator that is damn good.

>>912946
The stabilizer is a module that allows copters and planes to correct his movement in case there appear some undesired movement. I am planning to work without it, only using Arduino and ESC.

About the ultrasonic sensors, I guess I rushed a little bit without thinking about using IR sensor. But since I am pushing for something really simple that works in a kind of controlled environment, I am not asking for much accuracy. Wouldn't be surprised if in the future I change them in case I get it to work.

Hey DIY, do any of you know what the mechanism in the aperture (pic related) is called ? Any suggestions on what else I could look up on google are greatly appreciated. I've googled Aperture mechanism and images come up of what it looks like but I would like to know what it's called because I want to do it myself for a project... If that's impossible, do some of you know where I can get such a mechanism cheaply? I would be really grateful. Thanks!

It's an IC (Integrated Circuit) of some kind. There's probably a part number for it if you look on the other side.

>>915110

It LOOKS like a DFN (dual flat no-lead) IC package, but the spacing on the contacts is odd.

Not to mention the package itself looks old as hell.

If you're asking what's in it, I don't exactly know why the fuck you'd expect anyone to be able to tell you that with no visible part number or any other sort of manufacturer's mark.

Sup /diy/, the usb port fell out of my keyboard. It looks like a clean break, would i be able to solder it back in just like that? Probably a very elementary question, but I'm bad at soldering.

looks possible to re-solder but not if you're bad at soldering. practice on some broken or cheap electronics and first try to do surace-mount device soldering before your USB port

horry sheet man

you might be lucky and just set the thing on top, and heat each leg a little until the solder underneath melts

otherwise, practice on other shit as above or have a friend do it
>>
first thing is you need solder braid to remove all the solder on the pads and the pins of the connector. this is to make sure it lies flat and fits the hole. next is a fine tip and very fine solder. do the 2 big mounting pads first to center all the pins, then the 5 pins. if you get bridges, remove with solder braid and try again. or dump some flux on the bridge, and heat. flux is magic at removing bridges.

also, know that the little connector will come off again in the future, maybe this time ripping out traces. if it were me, i'd solder a cable on permanently.

Your shitty picture is shitty
But if you have room, then a snare
Remove the wire from the back of a picture.
Loop on one end and thread the loose end through the loop. Secure loose end to fixed object
Make it small so only the head will fit.
Alternate method is to add a weight and a trigger
When rat sticks head in snare, it releases the trigger and weight lifting animal into the air hanging by the neck.
A snare is a killing trap, don't use if you have pets.

A 5 gallon bucket, half full of water. An empty soda can, a wire coat hanger, and some peanut butter. Duct tape.

Straighten the hanger as necessary to give you a relatively straight section that's 4 inches longer than the bucket mouth width. Cut this section off. Drill a hole in the center of the bottom of the empty soda can. Thread the can onto the hanger wire, so that the wire serves as an axle. Apply a generous band of peanut butter around the midsection of the can. Center this assembly across the mouth...

First thread... I like to repurpose items for a better benefit. I've got this old kitchen table that I want to use as a work bench/table. The thing about it is I want a durable finish that will clean with ease. I have no idea what to use(never got into wood working) Don't care what it looks like but it needs to hold up to oils. Does that make any sense?

Raise it up above your head on a stand or something. Then you can start a siphon flow. You can place a clothespin on the end to turn the flow on and off. No pumping needed. Make sure to tape the connections well to prevent leaks.

So I've got a powerhead motor that sits right next to a giant vat of saltwater for its life, and the housing isn't sealed against moisture. So inevitably salt and water are going to get in. What is the best anti seize/galling compound for screws facing salt and high humidity? I've heard good things about ptfe greases and moly disulfide, though the moly seems very overkill for this low temperature application.

tl;dr: best anti-seize compound for small screws?

On a related note, how can I extract a seized and slightly stripped 3mm screw?

I'm looking at the #1 grabit which says it works on screws down to 3mm. Will it be able to get out a seized screw? I can't take a torch to it as it would demagnetize the magnet the screw is holding on and quite possibly damage the motor directly beneath.
>>
marine non-metallic is the stuff, it's not the best anti-seize or anti-galling compound but it's the most resistant to warm salty water.

ez-outs are for times when the head is reamed out but the thread is free to turn, if you could only reach down in there and grab it. using one on a seized screw will snap the ez-out off in the hole and then you're ker-fucked. a left hand drill is what you want.
>>
>>913477
Well fuck. Drilling it out would damage the mating threads, right? Because this is in the motor shaft, and I doubt I could rethread it.

See if you can find apprentice/starter kits which have everything bar the welder and wire/electrode/filler, they tend to be a better deal. Also I support starting off with MMA, a decent inverter machine that also includes lift arc support can be had for a good price.

>>913353
only having .030 gasless wire will basically prevent you from doing auto body rust repair and exhaust welding, it just stabs through and makes a lumpy birdshit mess. i'd suggest adding some .023 er70s6 and a non-rental bottle of co2.

also you might want an angle grinder, roughing discs, slitting discs, flap discs, wire wheels, hearing protection, dust mask, safety glasses.

i'd also suggest a fire extinguisher. you don't want your last words to be SHIT SHIT SHIT SHI-

Can acrylic be injection molded? All I know is mass producted plastic is injection molded. You might get away with making it from just regular smooth-on molds and clear plastics.
