I went to a tool show recently and tried everything from impact drivers to skill saws, jigsaws routers and I can't make up my mind as I want to replenish my cordless set as its ryobi. I'm thinking makita but I'm also swerving toward Milwaukee, what do you guys think?

rather than running a conduit under a road to connect a simple rj11 cord, I am hoping to wirelessly do it, but I cant quite find something that would work exactly

I was thinking of using a hobby drone telemetry transmitter and just going pin for pin or using an rs232 transmitter and going pin for pin though for both of these I'm not too sure whether it would even work

it seems like such a simple concept, yet I am having a real pain finding something designed specifically for it that isnt an "through the power outlet" style extender

as you can tell, I'm pretty lost when it comes to this, my intention is solely to transmit telephone line wirelessly, less than 50 feet

I've just given an apartment to rent a house.
I want to have a Hank Hill-tier lawn, but it's currently half grass half weed.
If I dump pictures of the weeds, can /diy/ help identify them and their best removal method?
The lawn is in Australia.

A broad-spectrum broadleaf herbicide will kill almost anything with broad leafs (surprise) - you don't need to do much specialization. Won't touch crabgrass through, like in the first picture. That you need to get before it germinates, i.e. next year.

Meme answer is to just roundup the whole fucking thing, till it and resod/reseed. That's not necessarily a bad idea if it's really too far gone.

The frame will be wood, light weight like Balsa, but probably cedar for strength...

You will be cutting arcs for the frame, similar to boat/canoe building...

Many large scale RC planes of that size are nonstructural vacuform components over a balsa core structure, or foam with a heat-shrink covering.

Long ago, they were a built up balsa structure covered in tissue paper treated with nitrocellulose or butyrate doped finishes.

Some still are, but most use more modern materials.

I've determined that my welder is frequently shorting out and flipping the breaker when I use it. Should I make an attempt to have it rebuilt? And if not, is there anything else I can use it for? It is a very old model, and I wouldn't mind replacing it, but I don't want to be wasteful.

So I'm probably retarded, but I cannot seem to wrap my head around how to program a toaster oven for reflow using PID on arduino. Anyone offer a quick run down?

Side note, the oven I'm using has the shitty resistive elements, so I don't think it heats up quickly enough for the reflow curves, should I just try to find a new oven or will it be fine?

>>1007656
have you actually seen this done before? Reflow oven temperature zones are static, so ramping a toaster oven doesn't really compare. You would need to invent your own oven curves since the ramp times wouldn't be similar at all.

If you are serious about doing it then thermocouple each board and use that for the feedback loop directly. You'll be able to tell when you hit thermal equilibrium to end your preheating zone. I don't know how critical the TAL is, since your oven probably wont be...

shits all over the internet for hobby grade shit. And this is what I was talking about for reflow curve, although I'm sure temperature profile would be a more appropriate name. I was under the impression that there's one provided in the solder paste datasheet to inform what temperatures and times the paste needs.

And of course I have a thermocouple for feedback. How else would I know anything about whats going on inside?

The elements are basically hooked up to mains through a solid state relay...

Thanks for the input. I saw a few youtube videos of people doing it but they had a different setup than this one. Care to explain why would I need a team of engineers to do it?
