How the fuck do I properly seal this goddamn gaping huge fucking hole next to my dishwasher?

it's pointless coz roaches will just find a way around, like crawling under the dishwasher. your problem is not the hole, it's the roaches. you can fix that, you cant plug every hole in the house.

are you saying it doesnt work?

i had high hopes for it maybe just wait day or two(?) till it dries them out

unlike what another poster said you can seal up your house but it takes a lot of work. You should start by pulling the washer out of its home and uncovering what is really back there. Newer houses are better sealed houses, if it is an old house you probably have a lot of work ahead of you

You are on a stranded island with a plane that crashed on the beach. There are about 20 other surviving passengers.

You are not allowed to look at any pictures of a plane, boat, or tools to referance how to build craft to escape. Only your memory.(That means no Googleing) But you have to survive and build a craft to escape the island.

Explain how you would Do It Yourself.

I would probably be able to build a plane out of the scrap metal of the crash, considering I have a perfect memory.
1. A roter in the back
2. Horizontal wing flaps on both wings to control up and down.
3. Vertical wing flap in the back to steet left and right.
4. Strings to pull on and steer it
5. To get some speed for takeoff I could imagine making a pettaling station for 2 other men on the plane moving the wheels if I could find some gears and an chain (I guess I could make thoes out of wood with my...

Hey, kinda new to 4chan so don't know if /diy/ is the right place for this.

Just finished high-school, planning on following medical career (6 years college in my country). A guy online talked to me about forex trading and that it could be profitable.
Worth the time spent on learning it? I could use some extra money.
Thnx in advance

You're not serious, right?
The sling is one of the simplest weapons mankind ever crafted, and this is just a sling on a stick. Wood and leather haven't changed since it's heyday, the single thing you should have to spend more than ten seconds thinking about if you're a reenactor is what kind of cord they'd have access to.

In terms of the staff-sling, looking at about broomstick length or around 2m of fairly tough, flexible timber (oak, yew, hickory or spotted gum) and 60-100cm of the sling component with a pouch (hemp rope and leather) which is just attached via a hole in the stick

Does anyone have experience working with carbon fiber?

I had an idea to make a carbon fiber link bracelet but I have no idea if this is feasible. Think like a stainless steel watch band, only of carbon fiber. There would be lots of little links and pins, possibly all made of carbon fiber. I undoubtedly think will mean it is expensive. But can carbon fiber take something like a small hole and a pin driven through it to attach to other links? Conversely, are there any chain or interlocking link styles that don't require a pin to secure like in a watch band?

Also, would it be possible to get a "block" of carbon fiber and machine it into the final product? Would this reduce its structural properties, unlike the resin molded products?
>>
Here's why that would be incredibly difficult

http://www.accutektesting.com/about-us/blog/tips-for-machining-carbon-fiber

It would have to he carbon fiber with an insanely tight weave to do even the simple things you want from it.

>>1021443
Do you think it's possible to mold some sort of interlocking link that wouldn't require drilling or milling?

My point in posting this is to get some tips and help making my shopping list cheaper and to assure whether or not this is a smart project. All help is appreciated!

Houses have this water pressure reducing valve.

So I was thinking. Why not small turbine generator instead?

The power you get would be Meh, but it could be used to charge something.

The issue with a turbine is what happens when your water pressure drops?
You won't get any free energy nor any water.

>>1021269
so you have water flowing all the time? and it's free?


there are non electric sump pumps that work on city pressure

Wouldn't it only work every time you used the taps or whatever?

I got these RGB led strips with remotes.

There's only 16 preset colors available. But technically it should be possible to make them change color via slider/knob?

I also have these Ikea Dioder RGB strips that lets me do just that.
Maybe I could use those (wired) remotes to work for my wireless remotes?

I can provide photos of the gear if needed.

The strips are probably individually addressable LEDs. That being the case depending upon the controler (microcontroller) you can make an infinite number of patterns. I really doubt your remotes are going to be compatible. You could always do it yourself like I did.
>>
>>1021314
If there's only preset colors and no animations, why would you assume it's individually addressable? It's almost definitely just parallel R, G, and B with a common ground.
>>
>>1021367
To clarify, when I say no animations, what I mean is nothing like "chase" or "rainbow" or any of the other hallmark built-in animations of an individually addressable system. The remote shown only has animations that affect the entire strip.

Any of you fine gents ever install a gas fireplace? I moved into a new place with one installed but I'll be damned if I can find the spot where you put the key to turn it on. I thought some previous owner may have just covered it up so I ripped the old tiles off but there is no valve. It wouldnt be inside the box or something silly like that would it? That switch on the left starts a little fan inside, presumably for windy nights with possible backdraft.

So, I just moved in to a new apartment, and I seem to have made a mistake by setting up my bed with the head right underneath a window. There's no good way to rearrange the room at this point, but if I have to to improve my sleep I'll consider it.

I want to do something to block out light and sound from coming through the bottom half of the window. I'm hoping this will make the bed area feel more secure and peaceful.

>>1021088
>block out light
Curtains/shutters/blinds/etc. Take your pick
>block out sound
Earplugs. Literally every other solution is either absolutely retarded, impractical, impossible to do without skills and tools, ridiculously expensive, doesn't work, or all of the above.

Moreover, you'll get used to light and sound anyway.
>>
>>1021099
It'll be worth it for the light blocking alone I think.

As for the sound, I'll be satisfied if it even muffles it. I don't need 100% soundproofing.

As for tools/skills, All I need is a piece of wood cut to measurement and to stick some velcro on it at least. That doesn't seem hard.

Thanks for the suggestion that I'll get used to it regardless.
