I do a lot of at home vehicle repair, stuff that requires socket wrenches, screwdrivers, Allen keys, even misc electrical... But I don't have a garage. This means I have to drag my tools out to my vehicle. I also have to do this when working on my family's cars too. I figure a bunch of you guys do too. Any recommendations for a good portable toolbox to keep my tools organized? Maybe something with drawers.
>>1008847 Tons of little drawers? 7 or 8 drawer machinist chest. Fewer larger drawers? 3 drawer machinist chest. Ton of larger drawers? Get a 'top box' (picture related) and something to roll it around on cause it will be too big too carry.
Hey guys I bought this air wrench on eBay. I don't have it in hand yet. Dun goofed I know. I was informed after I bought it that there's no way to tell the condition of air tools unless you have it in hand, since you can't see if it's been well lubed throughout its use.
What condition do you think it's in?
Are tools used in professional environments (like this one I bought) typically well maintained and lubricated until they decommission them? I'm hoping that this gun was run on a lubricated line but now I'm afraid I wasted my money.
You have to ask why is it being sold? Personally if I had a good working solid tool I wouldn't have a need to sell it. Even if it got little use, the amount you'd potentially lose on its resale for me would be more than enough reason just to put it in the tool shed. Unless its bankrupt stock of course.
If it's been used professionally however, a good indication of its user would be it's new price, there's a chance while it would be lubed and serviced, people who work for companies don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Pros don't get rid of their tools until they're on the verge of falling apart and held together by baling wire and guerilla glue and can no longer deliver reliable service. Then they either give them to the new guy as a practical joke or they sell them to n00bs on eBay.
Hey Lads, I'm about to order some fabric for a backpack kind of thing that I'm gonna make and I'm stuck between normal cotton canvas and some shit called Cordura. I was going to use canvas as I know what its going to look and feel, but from what I've, the synthetic stuff is better in just about every way. Anyone had experience with cordura?
Last 3 days I've been doing some trial and error home anodizing and finally got a result that worked. Often you just want a piece of aluminium for a project that needs to be corrosion resistant, non conductive and 'pretty' with some kind of different colour. But big places don't want anything to do with hobby people and normally this involves using sulphuric acid... which is fun, but hard to get and WILL to fuck your shit up if you get it on yourself or anything else you don't want burnt and dissolved. In my case, I just wanted a couple of bolsters... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Distilled water- for rinsing parts Methylated spirits/alcohol- for cleaning parts Packet of PH-Down Rubber gloves (clean) Measuring cup Saucepan Glass Jar or acid resistant plastic bucket Power-supply- around 6-12v and 1-2 amps (1000-2000ma) Aluminium Wire- 4-5mm 1ft long Aluminium wire- 2-3mm and 1ft long Paper cloths Non-ferrous scrubber Old toothbrush
>>1007950 Most important is the parts prep and connection. With your aluminium part it must be excruciatingly clean-
Gloves on Give it a dunk in some soapy water and scrub it clean as you can Once that's done, paper cloth and couple of drops of metho-spirit to get any final residue off it (do not touch it with bare hands!) Dunk it in some distilled water and let it soak while you set up the rig
Connection to the piece is very important to the anodizing process so I recommend that you pin-it with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1007957 Power supplies as long as they pump out some decent amperage will do the job 1-2 amps seems to be fine for small pieces, you can get them out of old laptops battery chargers, car battery chargers and various utility devices- as long as they're DC and around 6-12v = all good

>>1007265 The problem with the room is the color of the paint on the walls. This is very easy to fix. Paint them white or something not ridiculous. Knotty pine does not go with lime green. It looks like a bamboo jungle themed mini golf snack bar.
>>1007265 I'd go with a wood floor and change the paint. The wood around the windows is loud (knotty pine?) but not bad so you need to go with something muted for the walls and floors. The green just makes me want to puke. Too much going on. So go with a medium wood or lighter wood on the floors and probably an off white or something else thats pretty neutral for the paint. Then maybe some throw rugs? Depends on what you are going for.
What is the deal with that room? Is it a dining room? A weird addition? Its got... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

This comment made my day.
>>1007273 Don't even know myself. Purchased the home as a foreclosure and before it was that it was abandoned. Realtor advised it was both a great sunroom and place for growing weed. Which I'm told is important to have outlets everywhere.
It's definitely a weird layout. Aside from that door at the end that leads into the living room, it also has two windows to the interior on the other side (where the photo was taken) that look into the kitchen. No entry from the kitchen though.
First I was thinking pool table and a small bar, but the walls might be a little too close for it since it's 26 x 10. And for a bar it's too well lit.
I just read up on the story of the "Killdozer" and it really got me thinking. What is the practicality and plausibility of a "killdozer suit" if you will? Basically, im thinking of a rectangular prism shaped block of rediculously thick armor plating, similar to the kind the "killdozer" used, and with cooling and air flow shit set up inside, with gun ports as well. Would it be possible, do you think?
now this diagram shows it uses a 74LS86 ic,but I only have these ones : 74C00N,74C04N,74CO8N and 74C10N now comparing the diagrams between all them they all seem to be very similar only OR/XOR and it say they have TTL compatibility
>>1009498 Couple of things: - That circuit of yours does nothing to video signal levels, it just combines HSYNC and VSYNC. Ye olde amber monitors wanted TTL video as well. - Since you don't need speed, you could make a clumsy contraption using those 4 IC types you mentioned. You might need to add input pull-ups, though, since they expect CMOS level inputs.
>>1009203 That looks nice. We just have a groove carved into the edges of the floor where it meets the wall, and then a couple lines are carved from the wall to the drain in the middle and all water flows like that.
>>1009079 My dad likes eating and is coming back from a big trip, so I'm making him a crockpot full of homemade meatballs. Fathers appreciate a nice gesture and a hot meal more than a show of flowers and a card.
help/ideas/guide to build sound horn's to be used with compression drivers for sound reinforcement use.
in other words, how to build pic related.
the story: i have two cheap 2x15" PA cabs, they came with crap 1" compression drivers that are dead. blown up. also note that i live overseas and gear here is expensive. everything has to be imported. so i got a pair of 1.5" chinese B&C clones (comp drivers). they look pretty decent. heres the catch, i dont have horns/waveguides for this things.the only ones available at a local market are designed...

>>1008963 i know you trolling but just in case: Chile, southamerica. you're missing the point, 160 bucks for 2 pieces of shaped plastic is expensive. if it where something more complex, ok. but look at the things. you could argue that they are exactly designed and stuff. but further investigations tells that thats not so true in most cases. (spherical horns with less distortion and propagation paterns beeing a bit of a sound marketing thing). peace my friend. at least you help me bump this thread. thanks
>>1008950 That's really neat, I work in RF and we use horns almost identical to that for our standard gain feed horn antennas used in characterizing patterns of other antennas or getting really good power readings off shit and other shit.
If I where you I would probably use fiberglass.
Carve the interior out of foam then put a plastic base down and coat with fiber glass before vacuum bagging. Even shit countries have fiberglass shits available.

Hello /diy/ not sure if this is the right board for this but since asbestos might be related to DIY projects I am posting here.
Has anybody her dealt with asbestos in a project or even in their job? I am asking because I have been working as an apprentice plumber for the past 1.5 years and recently I worked in condo unit built in the 60's. It definitely has asbestos ducts. And it has that old popcorn ceiling stuff. Before I worked there the owner had somebody remove ALL the popcorn ceiling on the first floor of the unit. I am 99% sure she did not use an...

Yes Asbestos is bad. But it has to be consistent and fairly heavy exposure to fuck you up.
Popcorn ceilings have fuck all asbestos in them. Even if someone just yolo ripped it all out it wouldn't really be that bad once it has aired out and vacuumed and had sheets and shit changed.
As a plumber the worst thing you would have to worry about is asbestos pipe lagging which is nasty as fuck, but is really easy to identify and tell your employer to get fucked until they get rid of it. Same with anything else you suspect to be asbestos, just tell them to get fucked... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
