this is my first thread here, so please excuse my stupidity, if any. I tried to search for kitchen thread in the catalog, but couldn't find any.
I'm up to replacing my water-ruined particle board countertop with DIY butcher-block one. I have a circular saw with a decent 40-teeth blade, bought beech countertops from IKEA, 6" and 8" long, planning on getting a router, jigsaw and some stuff, see my to buy list, prices in CAD. The HomeDepot sales dude was trying to sell me a laminated one for the almost the same price.
The plan... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Whatever you use for a finish make sure you give the underside a couple of coats, not just the top. You want both sides to accept moisture at the same rate. When routing the inside of the sink cut out make sure you go counter clockwise or youll be making a climb cut and risking serious tear out,
The problem with them is people using a thin little $5 20foot long cord designed to run a single lamp or two, but plugging in three lights, a space heater, aquarium pumps and heater and seventeen strings of christmas lights.
All power cords that are listed or registered will have a load rating. Do not exceed it.
The other problem is extrnsion cords spanning traffic areas making a tripping hazard.
If this photo is your situation, I would find a cord with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How difficult would it be to /diy/ a small house similar to an apartment floor plan?
I bought some land that I plan to build my dream home on in 5-10 years. Should I build a smaller house for now or just set up a manufactured home on it? I considered a tiny house or shipping container home but it just wouldn't be enough space, considering I work at home. It would be miserable.
it may be problematic, getting planning permission for a standalone with one entry/exit, and basically no windows (fire reg, etc.) - depends, 3-world country (murica, etc.) - maybe not give a fuck tho.
meanwhile irl, go dig up a floorplan suitbable for a standlone, be a better idea. But, you have to go thro a few minor inconveniences, even for tiny houses, like, planning, roof, heating, etc. - building a dwarve standalone aint really gonna save you much, desu, be as well building something to a scale actually usable. And resellable, if needed, etc.
Hey /diy/. Any advice on how to clean up some of my memorabilia? I was shocked to check on it and see the state it was in. I'm fairly sure that it's salt corrosion. (The white patches). Not sure what the metal is though.
It's from an old light used in disco's. Eurolite Z-20 it says on the device.
It is an very old disco effect light, I bought it maybe 12 years ago and I wanna re-use it. It seems to work fine however this thing gets insanely fucking hot. And with hto I mean really really fucking hot.
I looked closely and it says OSRAM 120v 300watt.
Does this mean they are wired in series?
This thing must be over 600watt, it also has a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello everyone. I am in need of some good lighting to paint my miniatures and I'm sick of balancing this shitty little old CFL that I can't see poo with. So I got a big fucking 4 foot Fluorescent tube, 3250 lumens, 6400K for that real good brightness to hit every little detail.
Problem is I haven't a clue how to wire it and I'm scared of electrocuting myself. The hardware store guy told me it's simple, just wire the brown to brown and blue to blue in the fixture. He didn't mention earths though and I dunno where to stick the two wires in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Please wire the earth to the "swirly wire", the brown to the brown and the blue to the blue, in the connector where they're literally all right next to each other. Cut the blue wire an inch shorter, and the brown wire two inches shorter.
Attach the wire to the case with a cable tie so it can't be pulled out if you trip on it.
Stick the plastic circle inside the bit that holds plastic circles and twist it in.

I have an amplifier that i found and it's in pretty good condition. I changed some elements and made it work (sound-wise). The problem is that lights are not working. Voltage across the board for lights gives 0 volts. Maybe it transformer fault or maybe something on the board isn't right. Can you suggest me how can i check if it's the transformer or something else.
ALSO, I would like to ask if there is some way i can make lighting out of LED, using a second power source (12 volt converter or something else) and connecting LED, resistors... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
To keep it brief, I'll just fire off my design specs and answer questions if there are any.
I want to build a cylindrical pedestal to hold a heavy spherical object.
>The pedestal will be three feet tall, and about 12 inches in diameter >The sphere on top will be an acrylic shell filled with water. It will weigh about 160 pounds when full! >The whole assemblage must be semi portable (I will have access to a truck with a lift gate, hand trucks, carts and so forth. The sphere will only be filled with water once the pedestal is in place). >Economy is important, but not the top priority.
Right now, a 12 inch PVC pipe seems like a quick, economical, lightweight way of getting a sturdy pedestal.
The question is, will a 12" PVC pipe bear the stress basically indefinitely? It's for a temporary installation, but if the pedestal cracked, it would be a complete disaster. Is it worth reinforcing it with bands of Sintra, or is the whole idea totally fucked?
>>908112 PVC sucks for structural purposes. What I would suggest is you look locally for any metals supply places, call them up and ask if they have anything suitable that they can cut to length for you. Sometimes they will have off cuts for cheap, or they may know some place else that might be helpful.
You can also ask around at welding supply shops if they know anywhere locally that would have this sort of thing.
If it was only 1/8" thick steel it would probably be okay (@12" across and with 160 lbs on it). 1/4" thick pipe that size would be ~80 lbs alone. 1/2" thick pipe that size is going to weigh a LOT. and kinda cost a lot too.
We used to use heavy gauge 2" waste PVC and a mesh sling to construct beach chairs before they were affordable. I have seen them withstand 250 lbs tourists flop down on them so depending on the construction you can do it.
While you have to build it, it would be cheap and quick but I wouldn't know the price in your area compared to steel.
Hey, does any one know a way of making home made crystals? I'm just looking for something small with simple instructions. Maybe something I can make with things I have around the house? Any ideas will help!
You need a string, a cup of water and a lot of spoons of sugar. Put the sugar into the water, mix it, put the string into the water, let one side of the string to get out of the water and wait a couple of days
So for Christmas I want to make my girlfriend a nice wooden box for her to put special things in, memorabilia and all that junk. Something like pic related. Probably not as nice as I am new to wood working.
Can someone help me out on how to get started doing something like this?
>>907909 Measure twice, cut once. Dry fit it before gluing and screwing. Clamps, motherfucking clamps for days. If its small enough you can use a couple of picture frame clamps to get everything square.
OPs pic looks to be a miter joint with splines. Not a beginner joint but pretty and strong. If you have a table saw and a decent fence/jig you can cut up a nice looking box/finger joint. If you have a miter saw then stick to a miter joint.
Apologies in advance as this may not be the right place for asking this.
Started working with a hvac company at a construction site. These guys have these huge bins they take in and out through the lifts. Everytime I am in a lift with a bin my mouth goes dry for hours and I can smell oranges while near the bins.
All sort of crap goes in these bins. Saw tons of silicon tubes that were applied on tiles.
Should I need to be worried about something? No clue whats causing the dry mouth
How do you like it and how can i improve it? I put the flower in a bowl together with hot fruit sauce.This will melt the base of the flower and the flower will open itself due to the meltet base.I just try to impress a girl.(Sorry for the bad englisch, i´m not a native speaker,feel free to correct me)
>>907834 >I just try to impress a girl. English is my 2nd language too. Don't do this, it's just showing off skills you don't have. Cook her the best food you can. Women enjoy someone that can feed them tasty, different meals. Yes, presentation is nice, but show her good foods, no matter what it looks like. Ratatouille is not a beautiful dish, but it's taste can bring joy.
