Ay Yo fellas.

I gots a problem with a gate in the yard. The panels be falling off coz it's quite old and that. I tried nailing the panels together but the nail wont be making a hole in the metal bit.

The nail be going threw the wood fine, but if it not be going threw the metal bit that holding it together then its no use coz it wont be sticking together.

How can I stick the wood to the metal?

Sup /diy/?

I'm looking to move out into the middle of nowhere and building a house over the course of a few years. I'd be interested in knowing if there is anything I really need to know about construction that you can help me with. Pic related is a rough plan for the house I wanna build.

The current plan is that it will be a cottage, so no plumbing or power. The building will be built on a slab foundation and have only one floor. I'd also like the walls and ceiling to be slat and lathe rather than drywall, with the exterior walls being red brick.

Hi /diy/,

My coworker picked the padlock on my locker and fucked with a bunch of my shit, how can I permanently close his locker (which he leaves unlocked) with all of his stuff inside? I considered using a higher quality lock but I'm pretty sure he'll just cut it or grind it off, which would end up being a waste of money for me. It's just in the basement of a restaurant so I don't think he'd have any problem using an angle grinder or something to get it off.

Should I screw it shut and drill out the heads of the screws/ cover them with...

Flood prevention

Lets say you live somewhere in the south. Or really, anywhere that could wind up flooding after a Once In 500 Years type flood. Or even an industrial accident, where for some reason your habitat is flooded for a month.

So... how do you keep out the water? And I mean keep it out for about 6 months to a year.

This construction assumes the living space will be higher than the level of the water, but I'm more concerned about the worst case scenario of the land absorbing the water, becoming soggy and it sinking.

What sort of stone,...

Don't have the physical manual. Suppose I could look up the model. Doubt the mix is all that engine specific.

hi /diy/

So I bought one cheap stereo a while ago and found out that it didn't have an audio in after it arrived - yes, I didn't check its specs very carefully. So now I'm trying hack one in it.

I have absolutely no knowledge of electronics but I can read and follow instructions.

This unit has an audio in 3.5mm jack on the front panel that ends at a 7 pin connector on its circuit board (hp r_out; hp l_out; hp _det; gnd; line r; line l; gnd (pic related).

As I see it, I have two options to try to connect my MoBo with it:

I meant that this set doesn't have a RCA audio in at the back panel. And hence it also doesn't have the source selector for such (as with probably every other mini stereo that isn't this particular one from from philips).

But as mentioned, it does have the 3.5mm audio in and the source selector for it.

ok, the thing you're looking for is pic related. Plug male end into your 3.5mm input, plug your RCA cable into female ends.

the tube isn't cracked, it's just ill fitting, i'll just go and buy a 3/8" id tube and an oring and put it on the outside of the pump and hold it on with 4 zipties 2 above the oring and 2 below and maybe order a 3/8" check valve that i'll put a few stainless steel nuts on to keep it in the bottom of the soap jug

I have tried Google to NO AVAIL.

The rotary hammer chisel bit that I am looking for is NOT in this picture.

The one that I am looking for LOOKS LIKE the last one in the picture, EXCEPT it has a V-notch in it.

I have looked up 'V-cut' chisel bits, but NOTHING comes up for what I am looking for. I have seen them in the store, but I'm trying to order one online, but I DON"T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE CALLED.

Can someone please TELL ME WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR.

Hi /diy/
I'm working to a simple electronic project with arduino.
I have designed a sample and hold module with adjustable frequency.
The adc is the arduino one, I use a resistor ladder dac and a ne555 as a trigger generator. Everighin run smooth.

Now I have the desire to take a step forward, or maybe backward, doing this only analog. ( I've just a bit of experience in electronics )

I'm studing to make a s&h like the one in the picture, I suppose I can reuse the ne555 design as a gate...
Just someone can give me some general hint?

Then, it's possible to quantize my imput signal? I mean, the adc/dac conversion five me a 0-+5V signal in steps of 0.02 V, It's possible to obtain something like this easelly in analog?

At last, I want achive this goal for a large range of frequencies from 0.1 to 100kHz, I'm too pretentious?

Ty /diy/
I love you

quantizing literally means assigning a discrete value to an analog signal

You know that the ATMega328 ADC has a built-in S&H, right?
One of the simplest ways to perform AD conversion is the single slope conversion (ramp up voltage at known rate, see when the input voltage is exceeded). There are better versions of the same idea, like dual slope conversion. Google explains it better. You can use ATMega328's analog comparators or even normal digital pins + timer for a crude single slope conversion.
Slope converters are generally slow, though. Typically 100kHz ADCs use successive...
