I intend to make the ring I propose with, and I plan to propose within the year. I want to be confident in myself when I make it, and am going to spend some time practicing with copper or whatever else that's cheap I can use.
I come asking for any resources you might be able to provide me with, and with a few questions.
Examples I've found of others doing the same: http://imgur.com/a/irM7e http://imgur.com/gallery/MJy7T http://gizmodo.com/5616983/how-to-make-your-own-engagement-ring https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2epi6xRFKFE (cody's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I pulled this switch out of my Subaru. It controls the power seats. One function (forward/backward motion) doesn't work and one function (recline) does. It looks like there is some corrosion (red) on the board, but I don't know if that is what has caused the failure. The non-functional switches are shown with purple.
Any suggestions on how I could try to repair this, or am I better off getting another switch?
>>996345 First use an ohm meter if you have one to make sure the problem is actually in the switch, or if it could be on the connector or something. If there is corrosion inside the switches, that could be preventing them from making contact. Those switches snap open, you can see the clips on the side. You could very carefully pry those clips apart, lift off the cover (there will be a spring so be careful not to lose it) and you can see the contacts and see if they're corroded. If you don't want to take... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>996298 Run it through an audio editing program. Shouldn't matter too much what specifically you do, just make sure that it involves lossily recomputing the waveform. Crank it up until you hear distortion, then do the reverse of whatever you did (not "undoing" it). You should get something similar to what you started with, with metallic-sounding distortion.
Alternately, running the audio through a vocoder program, then blending it with the original, should give you considerable control of the specifics.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
if someone owns 10 acres of farmland, and converts his machinery to biodiesel, how much of those 10 acres would he have to use to grow bio-fuel crops to get enough homemade fuel to work the rest of his land?
Disassembled my starter motor trying to troubleshoot starting issuse of my motorcycle. It's back together now bud I'd like to test it before I put everything back together to see if it works. Can I just connect it to the battery with starter cables or is that dangerous?
Is anyone here experienced in working with some of the newer engineered woods out there? Stuff like LVL, parallam, glulam.
I've put some thought into making a 'traditional' woodworking bench, which typically involves considerable expense in hardwood and effort in dimensioning the stock. I want mine to weigh in at 300+ pounds and I want it to never move, cup, rack, or split, and stay straight as an arrow for assembly and glue ups.
But I remember a recent trip to Menards where they stocked enormous and massively heavy LVL beams. The stuff is essentially plywood, but instead of stacking the veneers in a perpendicular grain pattern, all the veneers are arranged in parallel, resulting in an end product with a tremendous advantage vs solid wood in stability, rigidity, consistency, and strength, and suitable for clearing spans which would traditionally call for steel I-beams. It would be easy to work with, because the material is manufactured to be straight and consistent from the start. Only problem is it's ugly as shit but I don't mind.
>>995587 The bench I made has a top of 2x4s. Once it was glued up and I secured it (threaded rod through each end) it was rock solid. Planed the surface flat and its stayed that way season after season. Its about 4 years old now and not a single problem. I've seen many, many guides online on how to do it this way, which is why I did it.
Would personally rate LVL. My house frame is made of the stuff, it ended up being in the rain and sun for 2-3 months due to various bullshit and it didn't even need planing for drywall. straight as a fucking arrow. Awesome shit.
Just moved into a new apartment and the deck is a decent size but the wood is atrocious. The office told me to fuck off about permanent repairs but don't care about anything that can be easily removed and doesn't damage the structure.
I'm new to outdoor /diy/ but is there any reason why this wouldn't work? I was thinking of basically screwing together a pallet out of decent wood and setting it on top, and laying a square of fake grass on top of those big kitchen rubber mats to keep my precious toes away from the splinters and rusty nails and help...

>wanna do it right no you dont, otherwise, you'd be replacing that. As you cant, and screwing into existing prob. frowned upon as well, I'd maybe consider that IKEA/hardware store click terrace/decking crap. Quality is not especially stunning, but, easy to install, easy to remove, reusable, relatively cheap and no harm done. Otherwise, you just be building a deck on top of a deck,
I have one big closet and 3 little cabinets in my room which my parents put here. And they don't want it to be gone, so now I'm sawing it into little pieces whenever they aren't home so that I can get rid of it in the trash.
My parents are like messis, they preserve these old ass furtnitures because it stood at my grandparents flat once, but they are dead now and we have to move on in life. I feel constantly threatened by thoughts on my dead grandparents and I need to get rid of this shit before I can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>994847 Pretty much sums it up. Should also be pointed out that if you fuck up and use a bad charge controller you might turn your battery bank into a bomb. Unless you have experience with these types of systems you might want to consider buying instead of building.
>>994844 It would only be practical to have the cells charge the batteries, as someone else already noted. You would need a LOT of cells to get rid of the batteries totally--or even just to run a couple hundred watts of stuff without the batteries.
Solar cells are best thought of as an extremely current-limited voltage generator. As you draw increasing amounts of current from them, the voltage that they can supply drops down drastically. Solar charge controllers are made to draw only a small amount of current,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So, my parents recently bought a new house and I am in the process of helping them renovate it. It wasn't bad to start with but kind of small and outdated. I figured I would start a thread and detail the work I'm doing and having others do. There will be a series of posts here at the beginning to get things started since I need to bring you all up to speed. First, the house.
first things first, we needed to finish the garage conversion that the last owners did half assed. they put a wall up 8 feet from the garage door and sealed it with foam. after much cursing, i freed it.
