Hey DIY,
My first thread/post ever so I hope I didn't fuck anything up. So I'm trying to create a synthetic ruby using the flame fusion (Verneuill process) method. I was thinking of useing a Oxy-hydrogen torch for melting as well as using the purest materials I could find. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with flame fusion. I'm also looking for a way to make a hopper for the alumina but I have no idea how to tackle this. So I'd like to hear what you guys think (and if its even doable)

Hi! I see you've posted your forced meme in a valid thread again! As a proud member of the /diy/ community, I appreciate your concern and efforts to self moderate, and on appropriate threads I applaud it. However you seem to have misread the OP in this case and gone ahead and posted it in response to a perfectly acceptable thread. Whoopsie! Remember that as long as the thread isn't breaking any rules and isn't obviously bait, you should rather just ignore/hide it if you don't like it. Thanks for making /diy/ a better place!

Look at grain and flour silos and how they feed into trucks should be good enough.

As for the flame wouldnt that blow a bunch of the powder away? Ive no real knowledge about what your doing but im sure going with a element in a circle and dropping the powder in the middle might be a better idea

Is this legitimately a way to make rubys? And whats plans do you have for them afterwards?

Around how much money would it be to build your own partition wall? I want to build one in my basement, and I'd rather not have to pay someone, and I've heard that building just a stud wall and putting sheet rock on it is extremely easy.

How much is it in materials, and is it worth it to pay a tradie to do it?

How expensive depends on how big, you have to look at your local prices of raw materials.

And I'm asking. will an 18 horse power engine be powerful enough to pull the weight of 3 people and all the metal for the armor? thin sheets of steel. The full frame will utilize the hollow pipes you see the base frame is made out of. the crude handles used for steering are For rest driving Purposes untill I have a proper steering components. go ahead and laugh at the flames on the bicycle forks...I'll wait.......ok...

Hey /diy/!
I need some help.

A little background info first: So about a month ago I stated a project, I'm making a pontoon boat, out of lumber, OSB, and deck screws.

My goal for this is to make a dope ass fishing/swimming platform for <300.

Here is the frame for the deck(wheel barrow for size) it's 7'9" X 16'.

Here are the frames for the pontoons(that I am also fabricating).

This is where I need some advice. I plan to cover the frames with osb and fill the cracks with something like Spackle or plaster. The issue is that I need something to cover the entire bastard in(something hard, like a liquid plastic type material), so that it creates a water tight seal.

Everyone I ask for advice from say I should fiberglass it, however that defeats the purpose because it greatly exceeds my budget. I was thinking polyurethane but my father says it might not be water tight, what do...

Don't let this deter you from trying, but this shit looks jank as fuck. Your nails/screws are going to be gone in a year unless they're stainless or brass. If you're aiming for dirt-cheap ghetto chic I say look up wooden ship building techniques for getting the seal right. This is something you really should have researched before you started just tacking shit together, though.

I'm on a local elementary school board and we got some funding (I'm not sure of the amount) to start a maker space in the school (it's an MST magnet school).

None of the other members of the board really understand what they're doing, and honestly I don't either, but I'm the most tech savvy of the bunch, so I get to take a lead on the project.

What sorts of things do we need for such a thing? A 3D printer was suggested, but isn't modeling the designs pretty complicated, and the printer material expensive?

Some parents wanted...

> kids are capable of more than that.
No they aren't. The best they will come up with by themselves is gluing junk together. You will need to give them guidance for some of them to get past that level, and from what you're saying it looks like nobody but you has those skills (even then your skills don't seem to be too great since you don't even get 3D printing). The question is do you have the time?

So this is for an elementary school? Arent the oldest kids there like 3rd graders?

Regardless, if you want to run a 3D printer dont buy a makerbot. Lulzbots sell to a lot of schools ive heard, and youll be a lot better off.

When you buy a decent prebuilt printer like the Lulzbot, you will have decent software and references for print settings which makes printing easier. The only maintenance you will need to do is clean the occasional print head jam, or level the bed. Easy stuff.

It's K-5. The 4th and 5th graders would be able to handle this I think, or at least the magnet program kids would (I think roughly 50% of the student body?)

Thanks for the advice on the printer. I'm sure there's a bunch of resources for pre-made designs, right? Any value in just letting students print something (no modeling) to be exposed to the concept at this level?

Where the hell do you buy wood that isn't bowed

If it's super important, I usually pick through until I find the straightest wood I can. Some places will have pre-picked over lumber where you can pay a little extra to get mostly straight wood without having to sift through the whole pile.

Lumber yard.

>>1001441
This.
Also, I am pretty sure if you go to a proper lumberyard, instead of Home Depot, you can find wood of higher grade (ie select structural or grade 1 instead of stud quality)

I'm not positive that those would be less likely to be bowed, but certainly they wouldn't be any worse. They'll definitely have fewer knots and other imperfections though.

Hey /diy/, I'm looking for anyone who has some boatbuilding experience.

This past weekend I bought a 30-year-old 15' bass boat in pretty bad shape with the intention of making it last at least a few years before I decide if I want to step up to something nicer (I'm new to boating and fishing). Aside from a lot of superficial problems, a good section of the boat's floor is fucked up from multiple years of water. I'm currently ripping it all out of the destroyed plywood and foam and trying to figure out what I do next.

The boat is a 1985 FiberKing Bomber. I literally just started ripping the floor/wood/foam out today. It's interesting because only the wood from the stern to slightly in front of the cockpit; at a certain point, everything moving forward is totally fine.

Probably was stored at an angle with the bow higher than the stern. Thats where the water would collect so thats where the rot is.

You could use them as tiny gardens, hang them up everywhere, and grow basil, mint, and shit.
>>
>>1001298
if you have a refigerator in the garage or basement, or even your main one. You fill them up like 3/4 the way with a drop or two of soap in them and freeze them.

The idea is that it not only takes up dead space that would otherwise disappear when you open your frig, but also since it will be cool it will cause it to kick on less to maintain temp. Works best in ones in the garage where you have to deal with hot summers.

Otherwise shoot em.

So I have this idea since I love coffee so much. I want to make a brewer that either:

B) Far less cool, but maybe something that brews from the center console, and pumps to the cup in the cup holder

Both would plug into the outlet in the car (usb).

Sure. Works for Corona when they make bottles. Why didn't I think of that.

In all seriousness though, I was thinking of printing on to glossy photo paper and using heat to transfer the design to a glass bottle, just like making a pcb, but I wonder what kind of special ink I would need to print with.

Maybe just silkscreen to the bottle instead? Maybe treat the area with glass etching acid first?
