Hey diy
Last.night i discovered that a few youngsters were breaking in my boat. The boat is in poor condition but i want to change that starting with a new lock or maybe even a new door to stop people from stealing my shit. The door is one of those 2 halves doors where you havevto take the top out first if you want to get the bottom part out too. Will post pic of it. The old lock is completely gone and i still have that hole left in the door. I dont want to put the same lock in because i dont think tjis door design is any good at all... anybody got a good idea for this type of door?

Hey /diy/
2 year plumbing apprentice here
What kind of software can I use to model piping systems?
For the most part the stuff I have been dealing with in my apprenticeship has been babby repair stuff you would typically see here on /diy/, but there have been some complicated affairs, such as a complex area drain for a backyard pool that had multiple tiers making it very difficult to get our snake in without camera inspection and huge water heater/re-circulating systems. I would be very interested in any kind of way to provide a 3d model of these systems for our customers....

Blender, Solidworks, Maya come to mind. Blender is free, but Solidworks is a "professional" suite meant for actual engineering design.

Autocad is free for students my friend
>>
>>1020112
Blender and Maya are not appropriate software for technical drawings. Autocad is not good for 3D. Solidworks is good for piping systems. I used it for powerplant design. The problem is SolidWorks is not intended for architectural systems, and also the models can get very slow when they get very large unless you know how to configure the parts and assemblies to mitigate this.

Autodesk Revit would probably be considered the gold standard for AEC 3d cad. There are lots of other lighter, cheaper, less integratabtle,...

39 KB,
I need various lengths of lag bolts for building a bridge over a creek.

I went to lowes, and they are extremely expensive? And don't seem to actually come in bulk. I need various sizes too. between like 4 inches, all the way up to 10 inches.

where's a good place in the southern part of the US that supplies bulk lagbolts that doesn't wanna ass-rape my pocketbook? Figured someone on DIY should know.

There's a reason lag bolts aren't sold in bulk and are expensive. It's because the average consumer doesn't need them in bulk so it would not be profitable to try and sell them that way. If you're building a porch and are attaching the frame to the house you only need 8 or so lag bolts, not a box of 100. Because they don't sell them in bulk they mark up the prices to make up the difference so they can still turn a profit. Ebay is probably your best bet in this case, good luck

>>1019570
Or even a bolt and screw merchant.

In socal we have enough industry that there are specialized 'screw and bolt' hardware vendors that that is all they sell, and will sell to consumers for no real deal, you just need to walk in and place an order.

So I ended up doing the acetone/spare plastic Putty mixture because I figure it'd literally become one with the plastic around it. Applied it in thin, spacled coats, drying for a couple of days, sanding down in between, and applying more as necessary.
My problem now is that, I guess the putty had some air in it, so now the resulting surface is very porous and full of tiny pin holes.
I want to prime and paint this thing, but those holes need taken care of first.
How do I best go about filling in these holes and making a 100% smooth surface?

Elaborate. On the vacuum thing, not the turd thing. I've already put several layers of this putty over the course of a week. Are you saying normal air drying isn't going to cure it???

I'm trying to add a remote switch to my speaker system. To do this, I found pic related, a remote controlled switch. The issue is, I want to still be able to use a physical switch on the unit to turn it on and off. If I use this module, it will completely replace that.

So I want to for example; switch on with physical switch, switch off with remote.

How can I do this? Any modules available? Or is there some electronic trickery to do this I do not yet know of?

you need to keep the remote unit ON to be able to use the main switch

an other way would be getting an EE/hobbyst etc. opening up your system and installing a custom solution which places a custom logic instead of the on/off switch. It is not complicated for an EE/hobbyst (its like 10 lines if code on a uC or you can even get it down to logic gates or even opamp comparator level although nowadays these would be more expensive than a 1$ uC) but their hourly wages are probably too high

The fuck are you on about "ten lines of code"??

OP you want an "exclusive or" gate as you described.

XOR outputs a signal if, and only if, one input signal is true. If both signals are off or on then the output is false.

Open up your unit.
Wire up the wireless switch onto an appropriate rail from the power supply.
Wire the output of the wireless gate into an XOR IC.
Unsolder the power switch output from...

Wood is absorbent. Most varnishes require multiple coats, especially if you want it to be glossy.

Also, the first coat of any varnish onto wood will cause it to get hairy, so expect to have to sand it again, at least once.

A grit of 240 or higher is a good idea after you've done a coat.

noob here, pls be patient.

so i'v fount this jet engin online and i'm a bit confused with one charactiristic:

Fuel Consumption = 1.2 kg/daN.hr

does this mean that this engine will produce a constant thrust of 1000 Newton while running for 1 hour and only consume 1.2 kg of fuel ?

sounds pretty economical. or am i reading it wrong ?

Pretty sure da is deca, which is 10, not 1000.

>>1017838
you are correct, but the engine will never ONLY produce 1000 newton, so you need to multuply the 1.2kg by whatever output the engine has

How can we identify which values are more desirable on a capacitor in a circuit?

Is it just bigger is better or is there more to it than that? All I can understand so far is that you want to be close but over the circuit voltage for better performance, but what about the uF?
