>>901745 Cheap you seals. Have someone come and do some kind of pressure test, I forget what its called. It will tell you if your house has air leaking in. Find where the leaks are and seal that shit up.
Hi /diy/ looking to get into CNC. Routing at first and maybe printing later
Could anyone recommend some software to begin this journey, particularly since 3D design would have to go to CAM I would assume. I have experience with vector art and .svg with lasers, but not much in the world of 3D.
Would be nice if it has the option to create shapes by entering numbers, like number of vertices, length, width, etc.
>>901912 Well the obvious would be a very stupid thing indeed. Google's bubble searches are designed around common searches, most people aren't trying to host milling equipment in their house and those that run a full scale business are likely buying whatever a high end manufacture recommends. So 3 days of hunting articles off a search for hobbyist levels results in fuck all of a definitive answer for beginners.
So I've been trying Autodesk Design, FreeCAD, and Sketchup, but without the backing of someone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What are your favorite cordless tools? I'm looking to buy into a set (shared ecosystem), and want to make sure I buy crap and have to start over.
At work we use 18v DeWalts (pic related), they're pretty good, but I think they've been supplanted for the most part by their new 20v line. We have 1 20v cordless and it's much lighter in the hand than the 18v.
My boss has a white makita drill and impact driver, they seem to have held up pretty well to our abuse.
I haven't had much experience with other cordless sets, we have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't expect that anyone here has done this before, but I want your opinion on this anyways. If I were to stage several radial fans as illustrated in the pic would it actually increase the maximum pressure on the output end by a non marginal amount?
It would increase pressure but not as efficiently as selecting a way higher rpm radial fan. Cascading fans works okay with radial fans but is not the most efficient means to increase pressure. Without knowing the fan specs it would be hard to give any figures as to pressure gain.
Fans like that don't compress air to any reasonable extent. This is why strapping a big electric fan to the intake of your car does absolutely nothing, but attaching a supercharger or turbocharger that has an impeller rotating at several tens of thousands of rpm does.
>>900632 Lets say we talk about the 2W version of http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/35128.pdf >>900633 I am aware of that. I'm more thinking of the ability to push the air trough a smaler channel instead of actual compression.
I made this cheapo projector lamp thingy. It's a single high-powered LED and a rolled up transparency sheet with a pattern printed on it. The main complexity comes from the custom algorithm I made that transforms any kind of image into a projectable version. It's something like reverse raytracing - from a surface to the light source.
The pincushion effect is due to shittily assembled top - it requires pretty tight tolerances for straight projection.
Hey /diy/, I'm looking for tips/possible flaws in my project.
I need to set up a mock fire in a jungle for a videoshoot. >using digital fire is not an option >I cannot damage the jungle in any way >I need to present the project to the owner of the jungle patch (it's in private grounds) to prove I won't set fire to his 100+ years old trees
The video >doesn't need to show the ground >will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The professional way to solve this is using a wet/dry vacuum, since I suppose you haven't one, try with iI said, some powder that can suck up the oil, scrub a little with a brush,, then vacuum it and repeat till the carpet is practically oil free or dry enough. After that you can go then and scrub with water and soap (any kind, better low foam soap), let it dry and you should be good to go, if it's still greasy, repeat the process, is a tedious shit. Next time usea a plastic bag to put in the oil bottle...
So I'm making a wooden roof rack for my car. Eventually it will be stained a nice dark color, but I ran into a problem. How the hell do I calculate the curve of my car, and cut the board so it fits flush?
So I decided to make a knife out of an old file I had. I ground the face off of it , put a primary edge on it, put the final edge on it, then polished it with 320 grit followed by 600, it is a full tang with all thread welded to he files tang holding a piece of 1 1/8 oak that will be sanded and shaped tommorow. Any tips on making the next one better?
This weekend I had to rebuild my workbench. I bought a house in March 2014 with a tiny side room in the basement that I am determined to turn in to my workshop since I do not have a garage.
I built a workbench right away, but I only had hand tools (poorfag starting off) and I had a lot of beer in me. It was crooked as shit, the screws were fucked up (again, drunk) and over 2 years it was starting to fall apart (not surprised).
Recently I acquired some power tools and decided I needed to rebuild. So... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I was able to salvage a lot of wood from the original bench, plus what I left from a few months back when I redid my roof with my Dad.
So I compiled the wood. I had the countertop for 5 years. I placed it on cinder blocks back in college as a desk. The desks school gave me were shit with no leg room. So I bought that counter top and put it on blocks. But this time I reused it for a workbench.
I grew up in South East Michigan my entire life. My parents took off to the Upper Pennisula in 2011 after the economy shit the bed. When they took off I was away at college and they got rid of most things. One of the things they gave away was the saw that is pictured. They gave it to a family friend.
A few months ago, that family friend moved to Florida. Knowing that I had bought a house, he called me asking if I wanted the saw back. So it was a cool turn of events to get something back from my parents.
he also gave me a Uhaul of furniture since he bought a new... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is there any way to DIY these Pur water filter replacement filters? Cant I just open up the one i have now and change whatever shit is in it?
I live in an apartment and the water from the faucet tastes like ass but we cant install one of those built-in filters or below-the-sink filtration systems so this is really all we're left with, but these replacement filters cost like $5 each and only last six weeks or so
>>902189 Don't listen to this anon unless you want to get sick.
Your best bet would be to replace the activated charcoal granules inside with - you guessed it - more activated charcoal granules. If you don't have activated charcoal available to you, you can try powdered regular-charcoal, it's just not going to last as long.
I'm trying to setup a virtual machine of Ubuntu for school and its going well.........at least up until the part where a section of the screen to the right is missing and I cannot hit the next button to finish installing it
Is there any way to fix this or did I do something wrong while installing the whole VMware?
>>901917 It'll be something wrong with Ubuntu, not something wrong with VMWare.
If it were Windows, you could just tab around the dialogue and press the button even though it's offscreen. Linux has historically been terrible for keyboard accessibility, and I doubt it's improved much, but you could give it a go. Alternatively, why not use the console-mode installer? Even Ubuntu can't fuck that up.
Why are you doing the setup by hand and not using VMWare's Express Install, anyway? Alls you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
