I'd like to utilize it to make some graveled pathways if possible. What are some methods of making the paths in a way that no vegetation grows from beneath the gravel or at least minimize it to the point where maintenance is easier?
Something relatively permanent would be great, so no 'cides/weed killers which require regular spraying, dont feel like spending cash on that shit.
>>991655 They sell plastic sheeting for that purpose, measure how big your path is going to be, width and length, go to pretty much any hardware store/garden centre and they sell it in a huge roll, you lay that down and then put the gravel on top and you're done.
If you want specific plants to grow through it (say in a garden bed) then just cut a hole in the plastic and plant your plant where the hole is.
>>991689 Just make sure it's the plastic sheeting that's designed to for garden beds, you want it to have holes in it so that water goes through, otherwise you'll end up with pools of water and that won't end well for anyone.
Homebrewer here, I've been brewing for about 3 years but have been limited in my options for upgrading equipment due to living in a small place.
I'll be moving to a house in a month or so and plan on buying a used fridge to convert to a fermentation chamber. Not sure yet if I plan on going the STC1000 route, or a pre-wired thermo-controller (more expensive), or even doing something like brew-pi with a dedicated web server. Side by side fridge with freezer side being a kegerator is also an option.
I'm interested in hearing from others who've... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Been brewing with an electronic BIAB setup for a year now and extracs/kit n kilo for a year before that.
I set up a fermentator fridge with an stc-1000 and a tiny space heater and I'm really happy with the results I'm getting. Right now I'm working on an enclosure for my thermal probes and integrating temperature logging to the setup.
The picture is the second enclosure I've made for the STC-1000, it sits snugly on the fermentator. I'm doing my first lager yeast brews now and am using the https://github.com/matsstaff/stc1000p project... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's a full fridge, as in, no freezer compartment. I can easily fit 2 buckets in it.
I also have a keezer that's using an unmodified stc1000 for maintaining an appropriate temperature.
I have a third one that I've used for mash temperature control. Like I said, I have a BIAB setup so I control the element for the mashing period. That coupled with sustained recirculation via pump keeps the temps pretty solid throughout the process.
Hey there diy, you guys are the only useful board and I need your help due to google not showing me anything productive.
The spout of my tub does pic related. When the shower is on it just has water coming out of it still in pretty steady smaller streams. The thing at the top you pull is stuck, I can't push it or pull it without the spout flexing and making me feel like I'm about to break it.
I tried google but I must not know the proper words, everything that comes up involves the spout leaking while it's off and that's not the issue I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>990666 Turn the water off to that. Unscrew the entire spout, take out the stopper. Use a wire brush up inside to get all the build up out. Put rest into vinegar for like a day repeat brushing until clean. Replace the rubber sealer/ring thing.
It should work fine after that. Or buy a new one and screw it on instead. Remember pipe tape for the threads.
Can annybody give me some advice on what kind of desktop cnc mill i should get ? I need to be able to mill sheet metal, alminium and steel, max 3 cm thick.

I have about 1k budget, and yeah i know u can diy it but not enouch knowledge on the subject and i dont have the time to get into that right now. Anny advice would be much apreciated
When building a wall you start with the studs, then add external plywood, fill the space in with insulation, add internal plywood, put house wrap on the outside and then put put on the siding right and whatever internal finishes you want right?
For roofs you build the structure, add external plywood insulation, internal plywood, tar paper and then shingles right?
So I have too much time on my hands and I want to make shit. The problem is I know fuck all when it comes to being a handy man and crafting stuff. So what can I make? Im thinking working with wood I have the basic tool set Help me please
>>991677 I kind of want to make a bow I want to make stuff that is useful Stuff than can be carved Idk I just want to know easy stuff to make that I can make and get some experience working with my hand
why don't you try google faggot? maybe you could start by doing something yourself instead of needing people to tell you what is interesting for you. if you would have just fucking lurked the board before immediately posting your autistic op you would have found something inspiring.
>piece of shit cat chews wires on brand new etyMK5s >right side no longer works >chop off the chew piece >tie wires together and burn plastic off the knots so there's contact >no soldering iron so this is the best i can do >connections are completely broken now
what did i do wrong, or do I just need a soldering iron?
>>990787 yugh... Try burning it off before you tie the knot, you might have a glob of plastic right where you're trying to make contact.
Is the shield of the wire metallic or just some fibrous nylon or something? You're holding it back with tape it looks like. If it's metallic tie those together.
You got all the like wires tied to their same color on the other side? Meh, should make some noise at least, it very well may sound shit still. A couple ohms of a shitty job is the difference between normal... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I can try using a butane torch to burn off the rest of the plastic I guess, or I could just try to keep burning the same spot... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
There is a pedal power project that I've had in mind for awhile now, but I'd like to make it shaft drive. Would an angle drive out of an electric angle grinder be able to handle a maximum of roughly 120 foot pounds of torque?
>>990570 Instead of using a bike chain for part of the driveline. I'd like to use a right angle drive out of an angle grinder, but instead of running at the thousands of RPM they usually run at. It would be low speed high torque.
