Why do you want to remove a feature of something that was paramount to the design of a device?

Do you not see what I'm saying. That was the selling point of that phone, and you don't want it. So why buy it?

There's no neat way of doing it. Marker pen? Paint marker? Electrical tape?

Without seeing the other end of the cables there is nothing we can do for you. The easiest way to check this shit would be with a multimeter. But I'm assuming you either don't have one or have no idea how to use it.

Hey /diy/

I've been wondering how to do my own homemade tank in the cheapest way possible. It doesn't have to be diesel powered. It can be electrical, or whatever.

I'm going for as cheap as possible, but still looks good and won't break down on me for a good few years.

>>1006443
Diesel powered will be best. Id suggest something reliable like a toyota 1DZ engine or a cummins 4bt.

The hardest part will be developing an armored track system and the actual plating
>>
Wouldn't hybrid work the best?
Electric engines powered by a diesel generator.
Certainly would save effort on figuring out a steering mechanism.

Also, it's kinda hard to do a project like this without paying out the ass.
What's your budget anyway?

Forge a dildo.

Door hinges?

Basically, simple shit just to see if youre able to make it.

Anyone bought one of these harbor freight sawmill? Not trying to start a hb debate thread. I have some products from them that I'm happy with and vice versa. I have a 60' oak I'm taking down in my yard and want to mill it. A locally guy said he could slice it up for me for $600. I was thinking of dropping another $1400 for the actual mill myself and then I'd have a nice tool that I would definitely put to use. I don't have the time/skills to build my own. Just seeing if anyone has an opinion on this. Regards.

Buying anything but hand tools from Harbor Freight is a really bad idea.
>>
>>1009805

I've used their mini lathe and mini mill multiple times a week for the past 5 years and they both still work fine, even after being thoroughly abused (I planed the top of an anvil with the mill). Harbor Freight is more of a minefield than a deathtrap; most of the time you'll be fine, but occasionally you'll get fucked. Don't buy their multimeters or drill bits.
>>
>>1009812
Agreed about the minefield. My wooden screw clamps are great but the black plastic ones are practically disposable. Some still work but some broke the first time I used them.

I've got a bad blower motor in my car, and can't afford a replacement atm. I've got a few smaller motors lying around, any ideas on how I could pop the blades on one of those and nigger-rig one until I can get my hand on a replacement? Just gotta get SOME air blowing through the vents, it's too damn hot for driving without one.

Seams like one of your rotary encoder channels has died. You could test with a multimeter to be sure. When this happens the mouse's firmware can tell you're scrolling but not the direction and for whatever reason your mouse defaults to up. It's probably a worn contact or some other mechanical problem in the encoder; mechanical stuff can only be used so much before it breaks. Replace the encoder or open it up and try to fix it.

What would happen if I placed a steel rod into the center of the wooden handle? Would it reinforce the handle?
13 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>1009347
yeah it will reinforce it. just make sure you're not going to break something more expensive if you put too much force on the reinforced handle.
>>
>>1009347
Generally yes, but it does depend a bit on what the handle is going to be used for- leverage and striking both will be slightly different
>>
>>1009347
It would pretty much only have the strength of the steel, as the wood loses it's strength. The wood's strength is from its natural grain and handles are cut from center of the log for density. Basically, you'll have a steel handle with a wood grip. Better off just making a handle out of steel pipe and tape for the grip. Far easier, and lighter than you're idea.

I won a bunch of starrett 657 mag bases and all the buttons move but they're pretty difficult to push. Any ideas on how to free them up? There was a thread on homeshopmachinist about them and they say not to pop the front off or else they won't be as strong as before. Should I just try dripping acetone or carb cleaner down the sides of the button?

I'd try some contact cleaner. The stuff people use to clean the switches and dials in old electronics. Its designed to evaporte cleanly.
>>
>>1009301
they're just hard to push, unless its binding up(doubt it, starrett are p.gud), you just need to get some fucking grip strength.

alternatively, i'm sure someone will give you a pretty peny for those older bases, you can then go buy a more modern version with the flippy switch, much easier to turn on/off.

also >they say not to pop the front off or else they won't be as strong as before.
who? its just a pair of magnets, don't drop them or weld them and they'll last forever.

So I got an old peice of wood filled with lots of rotted out pockets. I was thinking about making a table like pic related with phosphorescent polyurethane as I think it looks pretty neat.

However I'm moving to an apartment soon and I'm thinking unless this thing is right next to a window to absorb sunlight it's never gonna actually give off that glow and will be useless.

What do you guys think, anyone ever try anything with this stuff? How does it fair inside? Is there another type of maybe reflective polyurethane that I can get to give off that almost holographic sheen?

Its meh. That stuff fades quickly with time. It stops working. I think something similar you should do stuff that reacts to a black light. Oorrr do it so its just tinted color and put like LED strips under the table. Like around the knee knockers or something.

>>1009232
Hmm those are some neat ideas. Black light would be cool but I can't think of a time when I'd ever have one, let alone have it on around the house. But the LED thing is interesting.

The paint will fade after a year or so and just look like shit. What you need is some tritnium OP. Or diffuse LEDs

My Lincoln Mark VII has a broken Tripminder. Which in pic related is the hub for distance to empty, trip tracking, clock, etc. Just above the air conditioner and below the two center vents.

Since it's broken, I was wanting to take it out and install gauges. Green digital LED ones that match the digital dash.
Does anyone have any DIY instructions for doing such an install?
I was thinking I could buy 3 LED screens with so many digits on them, and hook them up to circuits that will output information like RPM, Coolant Temps, and Oil Temps. Maybe even boost.

Wouldn't be terribly difficult to find some guages you like online and mount them where and how you want.
You could glue a piece of painted aluminum in front of your broken display and then cut holes in it with a holesaw to fit the new guages in. Then you have to wire them up, which isn't too tricky.
A boost guage might be difficult if you don't have a turbo on your 5l Windsor but you could do a vacuum guage- it just runs to an unused bung on the intake.
>>
Unfortunately, you are going to find out that LED displays do not speak a universal language, and that automotive gauges can be very expensive.

Your best bet is to use something like an arduino as an OBD reader/trip computer to pull data from the vehicle's own sensors. Then you can display that data on a screen that fits the location, or perhaps re-use the original screen.

That's a lot of coding to learn, but there are worse ways to spend your time.

I'm seeing cheap seven segment displays that claim to be tachometers on ebay.
I'm also seeing that ardurio is pretty nifty and people are using it for builds.
Should l try to get one of these chinese ones first? Theyre like 15 bucks and the right dimensions. I've also seen some coding examples with the same chip you mentioned.
I just want something that goes with the seven segment green dash of the car. Custom making it would be a cool project.

Does anybody have any ideas (hopefully cheap) on how I can make a stand to hold this light? I went to home depot and they had a similar one of plastic and the guy was saying to remove the bottom and drill a hole connecting the light to a PVC pipe as the stand. But the light I have is heavier (almost glass like) and the bottom isn't removable. I just need something to hold the light in the air like in the picture shown but I can't tell how they're doing it. Thanks in advance
