Hi /adv/, does anybody have experience making a bed that they'd like to share? My cabin has an 8x8 room which will be the bedroom. I like big beds and there couldn't be jack of floorspace anyway in an 8x8 room so what I plan to do is have the whole room a bed (that lifts up for storage underneath) How would one go about making a bed? One that lifts up for storage underneath, at that. I imagine I'll probably have to have the mattress custom made since 8x8 is even bigger than a california king. Bedmaking thread!
Where i live theres a mattress company that makes all the mattresses they sell to the public. Extremely high quality, and pretty reasonable prices too compared to the name brands being sold by third parties.
They made a custum bed for me to fit this oooollld mahagony bed frame i got at auction that was between a full and queen size. The owner came out to my place to double check my measurements. Delivered it three days later personally to check the fit himself. All for the same price as an equivalent featured serta
Hey guys I've got a problem with my water heater tripping a breaker in the breaker box. When we first discovered this, we flipped the breaker back and it stayed on, the water heater started running again and after about 20 minutes it kicked the breaker again. At this point it kicks off immediately after flipping it on. Does this sound like a Tstat issue?
Are water heaters something that I should call an electrician or a plumber for? I talked to 2 electricians (who didn't come out), one said it was probably an element going bad while the other suggested a problem... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can anyone on here help me fix my dryer? I've got a kenmore elite that seems to have a short somewhere in it. I'll be posting some pictures and a short video as well. I am no electrician, but I imagine if someone were to assist me in the process I might be able to figure this out.
I was thinking of getting some rope, a carabiner, and making myself a rope harness. I used to climb, so I know how to use them, it's just that rope is $120, and I have no idea where to buy rope/carabiners in the US locally.
Sup /diy/ Im buying a mini lathe tomorow and i was wondering if any of you guys have one and what projects or tips you might be able to offer me if you would be so kind. Ive used lathes before but ive been wanting my own for the longest time so im going to buy a cheaper one to start off with and work my way up as I dont got lots o cash at the moment.
>Anyone got any projects there proud or shit I love to see others works.
>>901625 I meant for the security system itself. It needs a way to dial out to you. If where ever it is going to be placed is within range of wifi then that would be the best and cheapest option. Next best would be using a land line or a cell network for connectivity but they both have monthly costs. You would only roll a custom radio solution if you're so far out in the sticks that there is no land line or cellular options.
I have a small project where i need to power about 2000 LEDs. Just normal 5mm 3v leds. How would i go about doing that? I was hoping some old computer charger could do the trick, but i'm far from an electronics expert, so i don't know exactly how. I dont need to be able to control any of them individually, they have to light up all at the same time. I was hoping to make a big grid, and wire all of them in parallel, so i can hook them to a single power source. If i did that, and have a 19V DC computer charger, what would i need to do, so i don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>901461 I did dipshit, i asked if it was enough to put a resistor on one of the wires, and how big it would have to be in that case. Now, can you answer my question, or are you an idiot from every angle?
A buddy of mine owns/runs a tree trimming operation. He heats everything with wood. Has a wood boiler for how water. One for heating the house including radiant floors. Runs a smaller third one for heating a pool.
The units aren't cheap but you can't legally /diy/ your own without getting it tested which would costs tens to hundreds of thousands. Plus he has unlimited wood.
You could possibly /diy/ your own pool heater because it's probably not subject to the same requirements as a water heater or boiler.
I have a PSU similar to this (this is just a Google image) and I've broken it.
When I was charging a battery with it a while ago, I noticed that once I turned off the PSU, while the battery was connected, the voltage needle indicated the voltage on the battery. Based on that, I assumed that you could also use a PSU as a voltmeter.
Then I tried to do the same thing again some weeks later and, I don't know why, but the wires immediately went super hot, burning my fingers and melting the plastic sheathes.
Now the thing doesn't turn on. Why did... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anyone got experience with soundproofing? I want to nail two doors together, with an egg shell layer between them, will that work? Any other cheap ideas that I can use? I am desperate, I am living with my aunt, who is bipolar, and I need a way to insulate myself from her madness.
An old Fujitsu laptop won't boot except from HDD. The BIOS password works, but the BIOS itself is altered and won't allow changes to the boot order. This makes it impossible (for me?) to flash the BIOS.
Now I assume disconnecting the CMOS battery will not erase the password. But will it reset the BIOS to factory default?
I take the password still working as an indication that it is saved outside the BIOS, which I assume is hacked. So if removing the battery does not affect the password, will it affect the BIOS?
Could... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
No, removing the CMOS battery won't change the BIOS code... Sounds like you need to reflash the BIOS directly. You're probably not interested in investing the time to do that, so learn your lesson and buy a new one.
>>901240 yes disconnecting the cmos battery will reset the password and clear the cmos. which is like the ram that the bios runs in. it will also force the computer to refresh the cmos.
source: used to work in a computer store where the same customers would repeatedly return because their password "simply didnt work but they were typing it in properly." some laptops require long disassembly in order to access it.
the password is saved in the cmos, not the bios. even the fancy drive locker bios shits can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey, what are some common hardware sizes? I'm not entirely sure where to begin. I am designing a project that will need a few nuts and bolts and non of it is load bearing. Is there a common hardware convention I can find? If I go to home-depot or something there are thousands of sizes.
