Before doing one myself (out of plywood), does anyone know if something like this is commercially available? Something like this = a rack (that probably looks like a bike parking rack) that allows you to store tool cases standing up, side by side making storage and identification easier that just storing them like books on a shelf (for example) or one on top of the other. I know this is a diy board but I'm lazy and I'd prefer to buy one already made
Recently made this flower press for a girl I've been seeing. she absolutely loved it and I'm really keen to start a few a few more projects we can do together. I own a machineshop so I'm not really limited in what I can make but I love using hand tools. Will make a drawing up of the flower press if anyone is keen on making one themselves.
I want to spray paint a plastic case, and I want to do it well. Problem is, I swear every time I paint with spray cans, it turns out horrible. I know the basics (like numerous thin coats, not one large thick coat), but in the end, it still turns out like shit. How the fuck do I paint using Rustoleum spray cans?
Here's the steps I have in my head of what I need to do. Somebody please fucking correct me if I'm doing it wrong.
1.) Sand the fuck out of the plastic object with coarse, then fine, then finer, then finest grit sandpaper.
2.) Spray... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I definitely want to have a high-gloss result when I'm finished. Not just for the aesthetic quality, but to have a force field to protect the paint underneath.
So I assume it's:
1.) Sand object until it's a smooth, flat surface. 2.) Clean with soap and water, mineral spirits, anti-fungal cleaner to prevent mold from ever appearing under the layers of paint. 3.) Spray primer 4.) Wet sand in between primer coats (?) 5.) Wait for it dry. 6.) Wipe clean with soapy water, and wipe with tack cloth to rid any settling dust. 7.) Spray with... Comment too long.

>>1018051 I have problems with rustoleum too, whenever I do more than 2 coats (at proper recoat time) of enamel, the fucker never dries fully. I have something I painted a year ago that's still got a tacky consistency.
this is for light finish sanding... what are you trying to do with it? if your trying to remove a shitton of old paint, or smooth down extremely screwed up surfaces then this will probably not be enough... maybe look into a belt sander with some 80 grit..
>>1017374 Don't push down so hard? The weight of the tool is almost enough to do the work.
Or get some more strength in your arms. I haven't used one of those in years because I bought an orbital, but it doesn't jump around at all. If I push it hard enough that it binds and would jump, it just stalls because my arm is stronger than its little motor.
I work in a research laboratory as a test tube monkey and my boss is easily startstruck by futuristic stuff. Because I've designed a few jigs and other simple stuff and had it printed commercially he now thinks I know everything there is to know about 3D printing and wants to purchase one for the lab, putting me in charge of operating it. It seems like it would be a nice break from running a few hundred simple experiments in parallel each day.
Because most of the stuff I've designed that actually gets used has been printed on a MarkForged Mark One, it makes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1016900 My main job duties involve 3D printing but thats not really the part I like, it's the design work (I'm studying mechanical engineering). If you are only going to be printing things, you will be extremely bored 90% of the time because you go through the process of setting up and starting the print, then you sit there and wait for it to be done. Unless you have 10+ printers, you won't stay busy.
>>1016905 Thanks. I think I could live with that because I'd be doing the design work too and I figure I'd be able to justify a massively overspecced computer in the budget for 'designing at work' (his setup budget is 4 times the cost of the printer + a separate budget for filament) so I can also do some CGI on the side, which is a hobby of mine but is sometimes called upon for promotional videos (the last one landed me a 4K prosumer camcorder for production that was mine to keep by way of payment).
Why the hell doesnt anyone build a narrow tall air conditioner? Its my understanding that the parts can be arranged in nearly and fashion. So what the fuck gives? >land lord decides to install new windows and makes them left to right sliders. >Largest opening is 12in. >wants an extra $100/mo in rent if he installs AC. Fml. What do? Pic related isnt available till spring 2017 and is still like 20 something inches wide....
>>1015472 Just returned a portable AC because it took up a ton of room. I have a small apt. It also was extremely weak and basically sucked in its own hot air from the exhaust tube that goes out the window. I habe two windows. One over my sink. So the exhaust tube was in the way and my AC unit was in the middle of my tiny kitchen. The other in my bedroom is next to my bed which cant be moved. So it wont work.
>>1015364 Spider plants, philodendrans, mother-in-law tongue, parlor ivy, and parlor palms all do very well inside.
I have a philodendran my grandmother gave me when I got my first apartment. It started out as three 6 or 8 inch vines.
Twenty years later I have hundreds of feet of vines wrapping around my living room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and basement.
Spring, summer, fall, winter my house is a stable level of humidity.
I've also noticed that the air quality is amazing. When I've painted, or stained anything in the kitchen the smell is gone much quicker in the house than if I do it in my garage. When i painted four years ago the paint smell was gone from the house days before the garage was clear.
My philos are awesome I water them about every other week and they thrive. The ones in the bathroom don't even have a pot. They're just loose vines hanging from hooks around the perimeter of the ceiling. They also grow the fastest from the skylight. The pot was cut away during a remodel and the vines were left in place to die. Still waiting six years on for that to happen.
I recently finished and placed my new chicken coop, any of you guys have one? It's mostly made out of recycled wood and it costed me only a few € in screws, hinges and time. It's 1.8x1.5x1.7~ and I plan to keep about 20 hens in there. Any suggestion? What do you guys think? Any breed that you would recommend (I was thinking about Australorps)
>I'm new to electronics, where do I get started? There are several good books and YouTube channels that are commonly recommended for beginners and those wanting to learn more, many with advanced techniques. The best way to get involved in electronics is just to make stuff. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

>>1013204 Once a relay starts sticking, is it toast? Maybe my problem isnt the relay at all
>microwave makes loud popping sound during cooking >timer hits 0 and it beeps >light and turntable do not stop >open door, everything stops, close door it starts back up by itself again.
In the repair manual it says that problem is caused by relay 2 not closing and to replace the control board. I cant find a board to replace it if I want so im gonna try and fix it.
I unsoldered both relays, both normally open relays Relay 2 works as it should when I bench test it Relay 1 was stuck closed when I initially tested it with just multimeter. It also seemed like there was something loose jiggling inside. When I put power to relay 1, it made kind of a weird noise, I checked and the poles were closed. After I took away the power away, the poles opened up. It works perfectly now, bench testing it. It also isnt jiggling inside
The control board isnt burnt smelling. There are no obvious signs of heating, no obvious signs of a failed component.
Does that sound like a failed relay? If I put this relay back in, will it just stick again? It was a huge pain in the ass to get the board out. And I cant find anywhere but Aliexpress to get the relay, suck to wait 30 days for it.
Look in to shock-nux or taser glove and adapt the design Basically take apart a disposable flash camera and use the capacitor to power the unit You'll prolly enjoy this vid https://youtu.be/oUJLgKkmllA
