>>988775 Coax is still used to some extent, mostly there's more modern variations of it depending on the application- feeder types which uses a full copper sheath to carry signals up to the antennas and waveguides which channel microwave.
That tools well before my time though so at the moment I'm just guessing its a cable terminator for some type of connector which isn't very common anymore.
TL:DR; I want to convert a double socket into a triple, I'm not an electrician, am I likely to break my house circuitry?
My home office has a double UK power socket on the wall in an inconvenient place, which means I have to run a power cable across the floor to power my PC. I'm looking at extending the socket to another location, using some flat power cables run under the carpet, doing either:
1) wiring a plug up to one end and a socket on the other (basically making it an extension cord); or
2) wiring one end into the double socket and the other... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I need some help with my university project. I'm trying to find something (A chemical, liquid, etc) that helps with cigarette's degradation. We found out, for example, that acetone turns the cigarette into some kind of rare substance. But it doesn't really work with what we want to do. Do you know any chemical or substance that helps with the degradation of what's left of the cigarette after you finished smoking? Maybe something that accelerates the natural degradation of the cigarette or something that turns it into some other material. Anything is well received
>>988460 I hear promising things about the scorcerers/philosophers stone, OP might want to look into it, though I hear some of the ingredients for it are a little sketchy, something about a lot of peoples souls? I dunno, should probably just invest in an ash tray OP
>>988427 No, you get patterns which tells you the colours and how many X's go in each row, and then you just do one set of diagonals so it looks like this //////// then once you reach the end of a row you go back with the other diagonals \\\\\\\ to from your X's then you just go down the design until it's done, probably the easiest form of sewing.
What's the easiest way to strip paint from a radiator without buying expensive sand blasting equipment?
There's about 2 or 3 layers of paint on it which is cracking and flaking in some parts (left by previous home owners). Right now I'm taking it off by gently flaking it off with a scraper/stanley knife, which is taking a long time. I'm half tempted to take off the parts that are flaking and just paint it all. Thanks.
I'd like to mount some kind of engine in my bike. To be more specific, i'm thinking about buying one of those cheap 50ccm mini-children-quad engines and strapping it on rear bike rack - it'll probably be unbalanced but screw it, i'm riding ~20km per day from village to city and this kind of aid would be great.
So, question: what is the best way to connect engine with bike wheel? Right now i'm thinking about getting additional chain and reserving one gear from cassette (or whatever rear gear thingie is called, sorry, i'm not native english... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>988052 > Is there some kind of double-sided hub with two independent freewheels so i could spin only engine or only pedals? Sounds like you want a flip flop hub for fixies. Or maybe fabricate something that attaches to disk brake mounts, since driving the wheel from the left side would try to unscrew the cog and put a lot of stress on the lockring.
But have you though about just getting a better bike with decent tires? 20km a day should be easy if you're in half decent shape and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys, I am currently collecting materials to make a hot tub like the one in the picture. I am going to be making it square not round for strength and it will be easier to make. I've got the coil, pipes, fibreglass and gel coat all for free already. someone I know it working on making a 3d model for me to make a plan from. However as I have been thinking about making it I was wondering about the displacement of the water. I want to make it big enough for 6/7 people how do hot tubs usually work in regards to always being full whether there is one or 6/7 people inside... Comment too long.

>>987998 See how in your pic there is a rather large gab between the water level and the top of the tub? That's to allow for displacement, just build up the sides high enough to allow for the water to rise without spilling over.
