>>1004472 You can grow stuff in bags if you don't want to dig up your yard or you don't have much in the way of open ground, they are a kind of plastic fabric and with care can be reused for a few years, you can let your seed potatoes "bud" on a window sill and then plant them out, compost mixed with some well rotted manure (60 - 40 mix) will give them plenty of food to get on with, plant the seed potatoes in a half full bag then as the plants grow almost cover them over (leave a few leaves poking out) to...

when the plant appears and grows some, pile good loose soil around the plant. leaving the top half the plant exposed. Keep repeating this every few days. Till your mound gets about a foot and half or two feet high.
when the plant above ground dies. tear the mound apart to get potatoes.
I use those for my components. I dont know how much shit you ordered but definitely buy enough cabinets so you can keep your different values organized. Keeping your resistors and shit organized takes up a lot of drawers. You're also gonna want something bigger to store whatever big shit you accumulate, batteries, power supplies, cords, wire, etc. Save the husky box for tools. A parts organizer like the one in your pic is like fifteen bucks at harbor freight so I don't think you're gonna get a better solution for less.
Whatever organizer you get, ensure that the "ceilings" of the drawers is solid. That is to say, completely enclosed. I like the organizers I have on the basis that they were cheap (like $20 for 64 2x5.5" drawers), but the cutouts in the drawer slots that were put in to save material means that things can get caught/stuck after you close the drawer. Not to mention the fact that if I ever knock the thing over (god forbid), parts are still going to be all over the place even if every drawer magically... Comment too long.

For most through-hole components, I use these: http://www.mcmaster.com/#4629T34 For surface mount, the compartments are way too big. I use these instead: http://www.ebay.com/itm/SMD-resistor-capacitor-storage-box-Organizer-0603-0402-144-compartments-w-lids-l-/281543611085 ...and since I have like 100 of each, I keep them neatly store in map cabinets, aka 'flat files': http://www.draftingsuppliesdew.com/flat-files/smi-natural-oak-flat-files-with-metal-glides
Looking for a good socket set that i can keep for years. My boss has a Craftsman set he got at Orchard Supply for about 130 iirc and it seems pretty solid. I dont know anything about what names are quality but i know i wont be buying some snap-on 400 dollar set. Any suggestions?
>>1004347 You didnt specify a price range, or what kind of sockets you are looking for. All you have said is that you want good sockets that will last, and then contradicted that statement by saying that a chinese craftsman set seemed solid.
So my laptop doesn't come with a CD drive, but it has this placeholder thing, and a cd-tray sized hole in the side. The placeholder screws came out so I can put whatever I want in there. There's access to some sort of SATA connection inside. I'm looking for ideas for what to put inside! I don't do enough drugs to make it a stash though.
What I came up with so far: -a physical calculator -offline password keeper (push a physical button and it writes it out) -spare beef jerky stash
Any other ideas? I want to do something interesting
Hey /diy/, quick question. My forklift at work, an electric Yale 4-wheel is compromised due to me. I yanked on the cable rather than the anderson connector to unplug the battery cable from the lift, and now the black cable is a little loose in the connector.
How fucked am I, and how can I fix it myself? I can see copper showing on the black cable now, I just want the damn thing reseated. Pls help
A.) Pulled the cable out of the crimp. In that case, not really your fault; that should have been essentially impossible to do. Stuff it back in and crimp it better.
B.) Pulled the contact out of the housing. Again, not your fault if you were able to do it; Anderson plugs lock in once assembled and shouldn't be able to come loose without deliberate effort. See if the pawl that holds the contact in is okay and push it back in if it is.
C.) Pulled the insulation back on the cable. Yet again, shouldn't really have been possible unless it was cut too far back in the first place. Cover it with some suitable tape and it should be alright.
>>1003076 thank you for your response. I was trying to push it back in before I closed the store, but I'm not sure if I accomplished anything. As far as I could tell, I couldn't at this point easily pull the cable or anything else from the connector. The black cable just jiggles a lot, and I can see copper which I don't like. Any tips on a fix?
I feel that makeing my own cf blade would be cheaper than buying one i'm just not sure about a few thing: 1. number of layers i would need 2. if theres some other material it's made out of or if its just carbon fiber 3,advantages/disadvantages of the different mounting options 4. dimensions
Please help me before I fucking snap. I live above a pool at an apartment complex. It's so fucking noisy and I cannot deal with this anymore. Can a sliding glass door be sound proofed? I am totally at fault for choosing this apartment I thought it would be nice to stare at hot chick's but I got were screaming kids. I am going to break my lease and eat 2 grand penalty if I move. I also can move into the back of the apartments but I would like to try and sound proof if possible. I am a terrible handy man, here's a pic of the door. Please help me before I fucking...

>>1000852 Short answer is no, you can do things like >>1000854 if you want but it won't help a whole lot, it will just dampen the sound, the most obvious choice is just get some ear plugs (Especially for sleep) or some good headphones if you want to watch tv/listen to music.
