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?
>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.
>>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!
Sup /diy/ suggest me a cheap pump for a dive helmet i'm making. Preferably running on 12 volts, but i can make 120v work. I need something that is oilless or i need to make a carbon filter in line with the air hose. Inb4 >urll die feg xDdd
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. Pic shows the break and the USB port. I really need this to work, the keyboard was extremely expensive
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.
>>914633 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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?
>>914090 does your home have a machine shop? Are you willing to buyfag all the complex components you have no hope of machining? Then yes you can do it! http://www.jmaireland.com/build%20your%20own%20turbine.pdf
>>914063 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.
How would you go about building this kind of thing yourself, /diy/?
I'm (hopefully) going to be working in this field sometime in the distant future, but I'd like to mess around and try some things out now. Has anyone here tried to mess with passive/powered exoskeletons?
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.
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.
>>913353 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-
>>912565 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. If you don't care about it bring real acrylic but will look exactly like pic related, you could make a buck from wood then use the smooth-on products. Not exactly sure how acrylics are done but that's my 2¢ Greentext for convenience > 1: Make a pattern/buck out of wood, clay, paper mache, fiberglassed... Comment too long.
