Kind of a tech issue, but it would probably be better in here since I am going to do something myself...

Have a galaxy s3 that just had the power button die. I removed it, hoping to be able to replace it, but my attempts were futile....nothing wanted to go right.

I will try some conductive glue, when it eventually gets here. I might try to make some if I can pick up some ingredients.

In the mean time, I can still get it to turn on with the power cord (and use the home button to wake/shut the screen off), but for some reason it has been getting really warm...

Hello guys, two days agomy turtle beach stealth 500P headphones broke.
I just took them from my stand, and they broke in my hands while i was putting them on my head.
Less than 1 year, never fell, always on the stand or in the box. So i sent an email to them. They still not gave me an answer.
Since i bet that they will not do anything, and say that it is my fault, i ask you, guys, if anyone of you knows where i can get spare parts for my headphones. On their site there is only microphone, the usb pen, or the protection for the ears.

Thanks in advance for any...

Here's an idea, since you seem to be struggling with this.

If you are having problem with a product (in this case, a weakness that constantly breaks in multiple models) stop buying the same brand over and over!
>>
In fact i'm not buying again a turtle beach product: first because they broke without taking hits, then, because there is no support.
I just wanted to find spare parts to replace the broken slider, so i could keep using these headphones. You know, that piece in particular could cost few bucks, instead of a new pair of headphones that should cost around 100.

Thanks for your time, anyway

Sup /diy/ because the internet is full of conflicting information I need some advice on the best sealers for wood under a few different circstances.

1) pine shelf in the kitchen, will have the kettle and microwave under it so steam will be an issue

2) putting a jarrah fence in the backyard. I've never bothered to put sealer on a fence before but the internet recommens it. Is it worth doing?

3) pine planter boxes, wasn't going to but again the internet recommends it

What's your advice /diy/ and is there a is there a good reference site...

2 pack polyurethane is about as tough as it gets and will protect pine very well.
For the Jarrah, its pretty damn tough to begin with against bugs and rot- so its a bit of a much-a-much if you think its worth it. I reckon decking oil could be ok if you're after something decorative but with fences that's a lot of work.

You could have just done some basic googling.

I bought 100 of some 400V diodes for $10 to experiment with audio applications, but it turns out the forward voltage is way too high. Should I buy 100 of 400V 1µF electrolytic caps and make a Cockroft Walton generator? Will this work with 240VAC mains?

>Should I buy 100 of 400V 1µF electrolytic caps and make a Cockroft Walton generator?
Sure, why not?
Will this work with 240VAC mains?
As a guy who has made several Cockroft Walton multipliers I can tell you it will work, however those multipliers tend to fail quite often, specially if the diodes cant withstand high peak currents caused by the capacitor discharges, I usually tend to go towards higher frequencies and lower capacitance to avoid that.
>>
>>1006337
I forgot to mention, there's a point when adding more caps doesn't increases the voltage anymore. Capacitors are like walls with membranes, you can shout at one side of the membrane and be heard at the other, but when you start adding more and more the energy is lost between the membranes.

100 capacitors is probably an excessive amount, I wouldn't use more than 50.

Here's a guy that made it with 100 capacitors anyway.

I'd make a full wave multiplier, but I don't know what sort of driver to use. Will this run on DC?

I understand that from a efficiency standpoint, a plain ol' diesel generator will be much better than a turboshaft for electricity generation.
However, just for the novelty of having one, I'd like to build one on the long term.
What kind of tools would I need to make the blades and such? I'm assuming they need to be cast or milled for strength, and there's a limited variety of materials you can use, at least for the combustion section.

You can make one from an old car turbo. The fans are incredibly hard to make even for people with the proper tools. The balance needs to be perfect so it doesn't vibrate itself apart at 15000 rpm.

A /diy/ turboshaft, yeah probably. But more generally-speaking, nah. Aircraft turboshafts/turboprops are fairly inefficient since they prioritize power-to-weight and reliability over raw efficiency, but marine turboshafts and those gas turbines used in power stations can beat out pretty much all "plain ol' diesels," with...

thanks for the links
I could probably get into casting them, since 3d printers are pretty cheap nowadays, I'd just have to make sure to balance it properly which would be hard.
To start with, I think a automotive turbo would be the best to start with just so I don't have to fuck around with casting or welding shit too much.

That style goggle is such utter shit that it should no longer be sold. Get some plain clear safety glasses with a conforming frame AND a clear face shield. Goggles don't protect your face.

Ask on welding forums what people are using, they have to have effective eye protection they can see through clearly.

Plexiglass (acrylic) is totally wrong for safety goggles, because it shatters when it fails.

Is the wooden platform sturdy enough? Is there a better way to do this? other than buying metal shelving at $70 a piece and at a smaller size. Plastic is $30 and the casters would be $5-6 each? I will be putting mostly light stuff on them eg. cleaning liquids, assortment of nuts and bolts, etc. All of this on a flat smooth surface of course.

Hi /diy/

I have to put a couple of M5 threaded holes into a ~1 cm thick aluminium block by hand. Should I cut the thread or should I go with roll form tapping?
Is roll form tapping doable by hand at all?

I have a press drill to stabilize the tap but I will apply the torque by hand.
The highest priority is to avoid breaking the tap, the strength of the thread is secondary.

Thanks!

>>1006195

Given that you don't care about thread strength and it's not a very deep hole, there's no reason to really prefer either in your case. You should be able to form tap with a thread that small in a material as soft as aluminum.

You'd REALLY have to be trying (or be using a really shitty tool) to break a tap in aluminum. Assuming you're using tapping fluid, anyway.

>>1006195
rolled threads are mechanically stronger, but the taps would require more torque for forming the threads. I wouldn't recommend applying torque by hand in this instant. Try placing the tap in a mill, drill press chuck, or tapping jig/station and use a wrench/key/lever to rotate the tap thus preventing you from bending the tap sideways.
