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.
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?
Might be able to fineagle something with a strong radio transmitter on its back (since it won't be going deep underground) and three+ receivers. Triangulation sort of thing, but you'd have to write all your own code for 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. >pic related is very similar to what I'm using , its a few years old and can't go back to 0 sometimes.

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.
anyone got a aurora 3d printer here? i need the pre configerated configs. i bought it from gearbest, and the drivers were crap. everything went backwards. i need a new copy but there is nowhere to download it. please post a link for me!
>>1011650 I need a fresh config to work with. i am using marlin right now. it seems close to what i need. i just neet to know what to do. there are no instructions though, because gearbest is chinamade KO crap.
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
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?
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.
Where are the carving bros at? I'm looking to get into carving/whittling while I'm /out/, but I'm not sure where to start. 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?
>>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
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.
