best way to store cattail fuzz? I'm basically going on a large hunt hitting every local place I know right now that has cat-tails and getting the spring seed shoots. what's the best way to store the fuzz? leaving the tails whole? or can I break the seeds up into their fluff, beat them, and store them in large plastic trash bags? I'm afraid of molding. I'm going to use the stuff as a jacket insulation and play with it a little bit in other sewing related stuff.

I'd think you're kind of a dick for causing a localized collapse of cattails around the most accessible part of a public river. Did you plant the cattails? You know that's how they make more cattails right, and they are not very successful individually, right?

I would expect there would be very little difference between cotton and cattail. Their seeds operate fairly similarly, it's going to be based on cellulose. You could just buy some cotton batting for $not much from a fabric store instead of trying to setup your own cattail-gin and carding station...

why are there so much troll's on /diy/ lately.. who the fuck sent you here, actually better yet. why the fuck did you stay.

beating the cattail isn't to remove the seeds, its to break it up making it more fluffy.

cattail works on the same principle as goose down, compressible. yet creating those miniature pockets of air needed for insulation to work correctly. one shoot can effectively fill about four square inches of space. two square...

how should one use a spore print that's on paper? with glass you're supposed to be able to scrap them off, but with paper it seems like that wouldn't be very effective

I figured I'd just cut it into squares and each time I wanted to use them, simply soak a square in a container of water

I'd really like to try the redneck method; literally putting mushrooms (and or scraps) in a blender and pouring it on the areas to grow in outside

there's plenty of yard junk and old logs, which this varietah seems to like, the only issue might...

No, it's because it makes a better bond if you ensure that both faces are completely coated.

>>987241
Also, a thick layer of glue on one side will be less even than a thin layer, because surface tension will help to distribute the glue.

In woodworking its better to apply more glue and have some squeeze-out then to apply too little and only find out when you start clamping things up.

I didn't find a machining general or anything similar in the catalogue and I read all the links already, but what sort of lathes do you hobbyist machinists use?

I am currently changing fields and studying to be a machinist, and what little manual machining we did last year left me wanting for a small lathe that I can just use in my home and I am interested in hearing what machines you use and which one I should look into buying.

I guess my criterias are that it's relatively silent and can machine softer steels, also something that can be shipped to northern...

The sherline lathes are fucking fantastic, if that's not too small for your needs. They will absolutely handle steels and even cast iron, just don't expect to be taking black-ass-thick roughing cuts at speed.

forgot to mention, they also sell a similar vertical mill which uses the same motor, DRO, and CNC servos as their lathe, so you can buy one interface box and use both tools by just switching the cables over. Their CNC is based on EMC2/linuxcnc which isn't Mach but definitely enough for the home or hobbyist user.

Hey, so I was tasked with fixing this trimmer, but I have no clue how to at all. The primer bulb is squeaking every time I press it, so I think that it is not getting any fuel.
The person who told me to fix it said that it was because that wire with the spring at the end is loose. Neither of us know anything about it.

Can i camouflage it in a scrap yard so people think it is junk instead of my secret lair?

the first thing i would do is really look into how the thing is made, just because it can carry a lot of weight does not mean its designed to hold the weight of the wheels/axles ect from above. last thing you want is the bucket rusting from above then dropping half a truck on your head.

Honestly automotive paint isn't that expensive.
Go to your nearest auto store, get sand paper primer and black or extremely dark blue auto spray paint, rough up the surface, prime and paint it, good amount of clear coat, sand it with fine grain sand paper and give it a quick buff with some turtle wax or something.

in total should cost maybe $50 at most.

hi , i am trying to learn pic programming and basic circuit. So i am unexperienced. I am using pic16f84a with 4 mhz crystal osillator. Circuit runs on 5 V with 7805 regulator. and this is the code:
include <16F84A.h>

define pir input(PIN_A2) // Switch on RA0

void main (void)
{
set_tris_a(0x11); set_tris_b(0x00); output_b(0x00);
while(1) { //Forever Loop
output_high(pin_B1);
output_high(pin_B2);
}
}
I import this file with pickit2.
There voltage supply on pic , i can read it with voltameter but somehow there is no output....

Well that appears to be C or a variant of C. Every variant I've seen requires includes and defines to be preceded by a #. Have you tried doing #include #define and then recompiling?

sorry my bad. Actually there is . The code is working. BEcause i tested it in simulation protheus 8.

Here is the correct version of the code

#include <16F84A.h>

#define pir input(PIN_A2) // Switch on RA0

void main (void)
{
set_tris_a(0x11);
set_tris_b(0x00);
output_b(0x00);

while(1) { //Forever Loop
output_high(pin_B1);
output_high(pin_B2);
}
}

>>990435
Oh ok, So all I see this doing is setting pins b1 and b2 to high forever. You have labeled pir input on pin a2, which I assume means you are trying to use a passive infrared sensor to trigger events on pins b1 and b2. Is this correct?

I forgot, I use the Janome 2212 in a local sewing workshop from time to time (branded as elna something - same model). It's an alright sewing machine, bog standard beginner model.

It works for what it is, but don't expect to have a good time sewing over 3-4 layers of denim (for example when making pants).
I have an old Ideal/Brilliant 137 (again, identical model marketed as two brands) at home which works a LOT better.

It doesn't matter what machine you use within reason.

Try a large vice and use it to press the hub on, Use WD40 before you attempt to help it slip on easier.

Or you can take a square of plywood place it over the wheel, and with a rubber mallet bang on the plate which will do the same concept as the vice.

Third place a square peice of wood on the floor, place the tire on the board, Place hub on the tire, Place another board over the hub sandwiching it, Then drive over the plank with you car the weight of the car should be enough force to squeeze and press...
