398 KB,
First time on this board so be gentle.

I need some cool ideas for a living/dinning room ceiling lamp, and for some reason I want to make it too.

I was thinking something like this or similar but I'm open to suggestions.

Additional info:
Room is quite small, about 4m by 5m.
Furniture is mostly very dark (dark brown).
Electricity source is at the center of the room.
I like those kind of light bulbs a lot.

regular CFL and LED lights look like crap.

They do make "antique" LED bulbs, pic related. For some reason they are called LED COB bulbs; I dunno why exactly. Search for "vintage led cob bulb" and they show up.

They look kinda-sorta like the filament bulbs, but the LED ones only have short straight sections...

I'm getting ready to tar my small wooden fishing boat. the only problem is I need a better tool, right now im using a piece of cast iron [cut from a pan] sticking it in a fire, and heating the wood sections.. moving it back into the fire, placing the hard ground resin on the boats planking, and moving the hot iron back over top, making sure it soaks down into the wood.

I was thinking of maybe of using a cloths iron, but Ive yet to find one that sits around 500 degrees. to resin turns liquid/soft at 400 degrees, but I need extra temperature due to the drop that's...

How do I run ethernet cables from one floor to another through the wall?

Do I have to cut a giant hole in the dry wall like pic related?

You could look for a compatible conduit to piggyback off of. My apartment had an old TV feed from the rooftop antenna embedded in a solid concrete wall. It had already been cut and a cable TV line run in its place, so I ripped out the last remnant of the old cable and ran cat5e in its place. You can get dual-port faceplates for coaxial and RJ45, so you don't actually need to make any holes in your walls.
>>
>>995405
What is ceiling like on the floor below? If you can access the ceiling space of the lower floor, you an drill up from below and then you only need a tiny hole which you can fish the cable through.

got bright red cat5 running corner of a room downstairs/up, through ceiling- was temporary, then room got painted anyway, cable got painted over - can more or less no longer see desu, unless you know its there.

Lot less hassle than your pic related, depends on your autism scale.

I really really really like slings.

What's the best material I can make one out of?
The ones in pic related are made out of sisal; a natural plant fiber from an agave plant. Balleric slings are made out of this.
But I feel I can shoot harder with a fucking sling made out of yarn! Wtf?
Anyway, anyone likes slings?

I made two recently just like your pic with the red rock. A short and a long.

Fun times, when i go camping this summer ill show some friends how to make and then throw shot in the woods.

Yarn makes sense because it has some stretch.

>>994808
First thing that came to my mind was Paracord, because I have a ton of it laying around from when I was big into it.

I have no experience with slings though, and there isnt a whole lot of give in paracord.

Do it need a lot of give in the material?

>>994866
No, not really. I believe paracord is usually the most popular material for 'modern' slings.

So does anyone use Kodi? Had a coworker rant and rave about it since he discovered it last month and when I eventually rebuild my system I was going to go Plex. However he's telling me this offers more with open source, web access, customizable "smart folders" and extensions for specific things (about anything anyone could want so he says).

Just wanted to see if anyone here's tried it?

My girlfriend gets... quite heated in saunas. In Swedish saunas, where the temp is slowly increased until you physically can't take it, she gets absurdly aroused.

We don't really have any access whatsoever to one currently, and especially not one we could do things in/near. Is there a way to improvise that kind of environment? We already tried just running a shower and she said steam rooms don't do much for her. She's just really into heat. Even if it's not a sauna per se, anything that can kind of trigger that extreme arousal would be killer....

So my RV has formed a sizable crack, about 6-8 inches in length, in it's grey water tank. Unfortunately, (and aggravatingly,) there is not bypass to not use the holding tank and to simply run it into the septic.

As this is being used as a park model (life's tough,) I do not care if it's unable to HOLD water, rather if it able to TRANSFER water.

From my research, the tank is Polyethylene based. What are the recommendations for repairing the bottom of a polyethylene holding tank? Can I use some kind of repair kit or fiberglass tape with some treatment...

While I COULD indeed do that, what would make for a good temp fix for a few days? Still gotta take a shower and do some dishes without spilling grey water all over my yard.

>>997670
Poly's a bit of a shit to fix, most common epoxy's will go 'no' and that just leaves plastic welding which is actually a bit tricky if you've not done any before.
Basically- get something like a HDPE bucket, chop out a big area for a patch
Get the blowtorch out and you'll need to heat the plastic tank very quickly, keep the torch moving and don't stop in any one spot... ever.
Once its a bit tacky, put the patch over it and then as above- melt the sides of the patch very quickly...

The only ways I can think of to isolate your sub channel would be to use an optoisolator or an isolation transformer, both of which are gonna need a pre-amp.

Hey there, /diy/nosaurs!

So I got my NodeMCU in the mail and I've soldered wires to the pads on my SNES controller.

I'm using the Blynk library and interface to connect to and control the NodeMCU.

Now, in theory, I should be able to press the button on Blynk and it "presses" the button on the controller.

Instead, nothing happens. Not a goddamned thing. I just sit here, mashing digital buttons and nothing happens. I tried to connect to the ground pads and see if that works. Nothing.

Anyone have any ideas as to how to get...

See, I think you're being a smart-ass, but I never can tell over text.

Nice Dubs by the way.

But I was going to update the thread and say that I connected an NPN transistor to the pads. I connected the collector to the ground pad, the base pad to the pin on the NodeMCU, and the emitter to the actual pad that presses the button on the controller.

Should I be using a PNP transistor for this? I've tried a 2N2222 and a BC547 NPN transistor and they do nothing.

I've even flipped...

>>997361
Sorry, was being a bit of a smartass.

Is the trace that goes around to all the buttons +V or is it ground? If it's ground, the NPN emitters goes there. If it's +V, the PNP emitter goes there.

What voltage does the NodeMCU put out? You probably want a 1-10k to the base anyway.

Hello, I bought a drinking horn today from an antique store and some idiot drilled a hole in it, can some one recommend the fastest/cheapest way to fill it out, and wouldn't be noticeable too much? Thank you beforehand.

meh.....very sharp knife, very fine sandpaper, scrap and sand the horn keeping the shavings and sanding dust in a pile. Tape the inside hole; mix clear 2 part epoxy with shavings and sanding dust and jamb into the hole. Scrape and sand again. Wrap a leather band around where the hole is and wala toenail tasting drinking vessel.

nearly impossible to hale it hidden but can get close

Jb weld or epoxy and then paint it over with the same color as the horn.

Lowes can match the color for you, and if you know how to jb weld right, it would hardly be noticeable and still hold water.

Tempered glass is used for things like car windows and panels likely to be bumped in use, which would produce dangerous, large shards if broken if they were normal glass. Fish bowls are not tempered, so drill away. You have the right kind of bit, right?
