2 MB,
Is this stuff worth keeping? I am clearing out a work space, and this vice and bench grinder are for the taking. They both work. Are they worth taking? I will say I have very little storage at the moment, otherwise i would take them in a hearbeat. I am not doing and projects at the moment, but have in the past and plan to again. I was always told older shit like this is the best so that is why I am asking really. Again, they both operate well.

Thanks

I'd say keep both, new grinders are usually $40+, as for the vise, I've never seen one go for less than $60 in my area and name brands go for $150 (on craigslist).

yeah take both. they don't really take up much space.

So I want to get into ferreting. There is no way of skirting the cost of a ferret, but a ferret tracking collar is quite expensive, almost $300, and all it does is attach to the ferret, and allow you to detect where it is underground.

Quite primitive technology, seems like it could be made /diy/ for cheaper.. Any suggestions?

That is pretty much the bottom basement price for a detector with any sort of accuracy.
You could get an old telephone company/gas company locator, I don't think they have

http://www.ebay.com/itm/3M-Dynatel-APC-1264-EMS-II-Telephone-ScotchMark-Marker-Locator-with-Probe-/322119053442?hash=item4affcab082:g:PhgAAOxylpNTRt7D

But I don't think that one will work. It doesn't look fancy enough to locate an EMS pod.

I would want the collar to be a passive device, like an EMS locator coil/pod/ball. And then you get your wand up top to find it.

Hey Diy, can you recommend a good non overpriced multimeter. Wherever I look I see fluke as top multimeter. Can you recommend a multimeter under 30 bucks. It doesn't have to be super accurate,however, auto-range would be nice.

Hey guys,

I have a really nice lawn, almost no weeds, etc, but I have a problem with moles. Especially near the driveway where they all pop out of the ground and create holes everywhere. I want to genocide them all. Problem is I hear they are very hard to poison because they don't eat anything that isn't slimy and wriggly (like worms). I want to avoid using traps as the whole thing seems like a bit too much trouble, but if I need to do so I'll do it.

I seek a Final Solution. Any suggestions?

I have one of these cheap pir modules hooked up to an atmega328. It is supposed to trigger an interrupt and wake the atmega.

Everything seems to work but when the atmega goes into sleep mode it causes a false positive on the pir module and wakes itself up.

It works fine without sleeping and the interrupt works fine if i use a switch instead of the pir module.

I have removed the voltage regulator from the pir and it now shares a regulator with the atmega.

I assume the problem is caused by some kind of interference on the 3.3v rail but I don't...

you can add some caps to the power rail.

what's the best way to go about restoring this coffee table that's been sitting outside for 1+ yr into a flat clean indoor coffee table. many of the boards are uneven but wood seems to be in generally good condition. Three some stain stripper on it but seemed to dry up almost immediately, maybe because it's so sunny. more pics to follow

Sand it until it's as smooth as you like.
Apply stain.

If you can disassemble it (removing the top from the base and such), then do so as it will make the sanding a lot easier to do.

Hey /diy/, newcomer here. Recently bought myself a house. Already have a project I want to do, I want to install recessed LED cans in the whole house. I have a question or two, though.

Is it a bad idea to just install the cans in place of where the previous lights were? I do notice that most people seem to put several of them per room; can I not just install a big one and be done with it?

Also, is there some kind of rule for how many should be installed per foot?

>>
>>1011448
a big one means you need it brighter to lit up the whole room

more light means more equal lighting across the room

the only rule should be enough lumen for the space but this is also largely depending on your interior design

so if you have no idea... just install over old ones
>>
being recessed means they cast their light mostly downwards, so to get even lighting, you have to have a lot of them or else you get dark areas. i had a bunch of 12V halogens before, and just had to replace the bulbs, since you can get LED with MR16 type sockets. so, it only took like 3 mins per lamp to replace.
>>
>>1011454
Alright, that makes sense. Is there still decent energy saving even though you've got multiple cans where previously there was only 1 fixture?

I've seen a particular sort of hook blade used in threads here before (on the right in pic related). Should I acquire one? Is it practical to carve things out of wood you find in the forest?

>Is it practical to carve things out of wood you find in the forest?
Working green wood is generally not a great idea because it will shrink and crack.
>>
>>1011286
If you can find 'recently dead' wood it's generally not too bad after a bit of drying out and checking for bugs, fungus and shit. Smaller pieces you can do in a microwave as well if you're careful.
Green timber takes a while to dry naturally and you've got to clean the bark off it, seal the ends and generally prep it for storage away somewhere.

Most of it is a pain in the arse, but I still go out after storms and see if I can find a few interesting bits with natural bends

Just started researching making air rifles. If I use PVC, I can't really exceed 150 psi, but at the same time, I need a Schrader valve regardless of whether I use PVC or steel piping, and the only ones I have available also can't exceed 150 psi. Any suggestions for what I should do? I was thinking a check valve that can exceed 150 psi with a Schrader at the end of it, that way it can pump air in fine without having to worry about the Schrader valve shooting into my lung while I'm pumping it

I'd recommend a brass coupler for air compressors. Easier to fill if you add the valve and use an air compressor. You can also add a gauge so you constantly know pressure

http://m.harborfreight.com/5-gallon-portable-air-tank-65594.html?utm_referrer=direct%2Fnot%20provided

It'll be easy to convert it to a proper air compressor coupling. You might ask why not just leave it since it's a schraeder valve hose, and that's because air compressor hardware will last hard repetitive use, schraeder valves aren't meant to be used several times a day.
