Thinking about moving some books and stuff into plastic containers out in an external storage shed.
This is actually my dad's house I am sorting out. He's too old and I'm too busying trying to get myself together to actually build one like a cousin's husband did. Beautiful work he did himself, but it was expensive and time consuming.
What would you suggest for a simple shed. Thinking $500-$1500 range.
i have a few Rubbermaid Roughneck boxes outside, and not a drop of water has gotten inside in 3 years time. still, i sometimes use a dollar store tarp to make sure they dont collect water over top, and use a string to wick away any water that does. a thrift-store tent would also work if you patch any holes.
>>1006939 Bullshit. Without a seal, water will get in.
All I can tell you is that Lowes/HD sell displays for dirt cheap sometimes. If you do put those containers in a shed, buy some insulation tape from Lowe's/HD and make a seal around it before you close it up, and put some moisture absorbing shit in there. Arm and hammer, silica, whatever. I still regret leaving mine in the garage.
the plastic ones work decently, but i wouldn't put books in a shed unless i didn't care about them at all, and at that point i'd either sell them or get rid of them. . .
if you're going to do that anyways, get a solar powered vent fan to push out all the hot air that'll ruin the books over time,
go get a plastic drop cloth, and use some black silicone to hold it up no water will make it in, and get any kind of screen and use more of the black stuff to hold it in place over the vents to hell keep flying bugs out

Got this all at a garage sale for $65 Did I do good /diy/?
Never really done anything with tubes, but each box was $20 and there has to be atleast 50 in each box, and looking a couple up ranged from $5-$20ea on ebay. They had atleast 10 more boxes exactly the same, and 20 more radios of different types ranging from $25-$45. Should I go back for more tomorrow? Maybe buy in bulk and strike a deal?
Alright /diy/nosaurs! I just inherited some property and I'm looking to clean up and build something in the backyard because I'm bored, but I can't figure out what to make. I was hoping you guys could give me suggestions. I was thinking of a shaded area over what will one day be the garden, but that's all I've really got so far. (California central valley heat is brutal) Any suggestions? Preferably to do with wood since that's what I'm at least adept at, but really I'm up for anything. I was also thinking about a Japanese smoker... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1006321 Restoring and maintaining that grass will be a bitch. Would local codes allow you to dig it up and replace it with some kind of stone or sand? You could start a trend in both style and water conservation.
>>1006071 Sure, the voltage coming out of the transformer will be around 12V but it'll be AC. The fan you want to run is presumably a DC fan. You'll need to slap some kind of a diode rectifier at the input and also a capacitor to smooth out the voltage.
>>1006090 If you really want to use that fan you could either get a laptop power supply (that could supply over 80 watts), get a PC power supply (these are pretty good efficient) or if you have some watts to spare from your computer power supply then I'd just run some wires from your computer to power this thing.
>>1005566 >DIY powerbank ebay has several different variations of modules for this exact purpose, contains a li-ion charger, buck and boost converters and USB sockets for charging and supplying power... Costs about $5 a pop. >connecting a couple of these yes, it can be done, but no, you should not do it. if the cells are not properly matched (a good manufacturer sorts a big pile of them and makes a battery out of cells that are most similar) the differences...

HEy guys I was wondering is there any way to make third person camera for car? There are drones programed that they will follow you but I think they will not be fast enough/durable while flying behind car. Would be nice to film some interesting routes. I thought about some stick and put go pro on it but it will be awful while turning. Any ideas?
>>1004505 Picture related but with a camera on the balloon and probably not in the shape of a missile.
The balloon should smooth out the bumps from the car, having a pole that extends from the car will vibrate and wobble all over the place and the longer the pole gets the more it will shake about. you also don't have to worry about the balloon smacking into things too hard though if the string breaks your camera is going to float away.
A multirotor would probably be able to keep up and would give you the best... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/, I replaced my iPhone 5 LCD. I know it has something to do with the new LCD, because I reattached my old LCD and it didn't stutter like that.
Is there anything I can do to fix it? I will post next the FPC connectors. they appear fine to me but maybe one of you will spot something...?
Should I request a refund? Could it have been me, or is it the manufacturers fault? I want to say it wasn't me (of course) because the cables still work as a general rule, and that stutter, technology wise, seems to be a minor flaw. Don't know if... Comment too long.

I'm not sure if this is the board about bicycles but I am planning on building my own bicycle and would like some advice on what to buy etc...I thought about buying a used frame and then assembling it piece by piece. The environment is mostly urban and with a little bit of off-road so I think cyclocross bikes might be the best for my needs. I'll be using it as a commuter but also for very long distances and maybe some amateur competition. It has to be very durable and with quality parts that can resist water, mud, sand...
I don't know all that much about... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
But since you asked, yes. get a cyclocross bike. I would specifically get a monster cross capable bike with rack mounts, like a Surly Cross Check (more versatile and more tire clearance). Get full fenders too if you're riding in the wet. My 'cross bike does pretty much everything I want it to and it's perfect for city streets with a little offroad, also good for gravel road rides in the country. With the right tires it can handle moderate hardpack MTB trails pretty well (but it gets... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1006832 Without showing us a top-down plan of the plot and assuming you need to have all four walls equally protected, this is the best coverage you can get while still having the cameras installed on the building itself. You'd have better coverage by installing the cameras to objects outside the building itself, though.
How much money do the electrical, plumbing, drywall, ect contractors make in profit on small, new construction projects like pic related? Id be interested if there is some calculator, formula, or website to estimate things like this. Inb4 "it depends". I'm more interested what the electrical contractor makes in profit.
You're literally asking "how much does X profession make". Worse, you're asking how much a TRADE profession makes.
It's going to vary wildly depending on locale and project. The best you could do is ask around in your area (both those doing the work and those doing the hiring for the work) and figure it out from that.
What kind of valve would be good for controlling the flow from an oxygen tank using the output from arduino. Until this year I knew jack shit about electronics. Hence dunno if I should ask here in /diy/
Some friends told me to use a solenoid valve but as far as I've read, those only get you to fully open or fully close a valve, while I want it to control the oxygen flow, say 0-5 lpm and inbetween.
>>1006782 Used as the regulator, however I'm open to suggestions. What I'm trying to do is to make a valve that regulates the flow according to data from a pulse oximeter. Say, increases flow if <90% and lowers it if >95%
So for the project im currently working on im trying to figure out a way to power some LED strip lights via battery power or solar instead of using an outlet like its designed for. I wanna use these strip lights in a spot without outlet access.
I know jack-shit about electrical's btw
Pic attached is basically same thing i plan on purchasing. In total im hoping to run 15 ft of these lights (3-5ft sections) I might compromise to just a 4ft section instead tho if 15ft uses too much energy or wtv
The guy at the hardware store said i might be able to bypass... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1006741 Bypass what regulator? Just plug the fucking 12v battery into the dc jack at the controller box. And for solar: Buy a regulator for charging the battery (12 bucks on ebay) and charge the battery with the solarpanel and power the stripe by battery.
