Lately my quite life has been fuck thanks to my neighbours little kid. I am not entirely sure if it is the new couple living right from me or the ones living under me or both. I am not sure if it is the walls being too thin or all the cracks. There are even two outlets, one of them unusable and fucked. This room, my current bedroom, supposedly was a kitchen once so the rooms of my neighbours should be their kitchens too. I don't have a lot of money and I am not expecting anything, but I am very stressed at this point. If I wasn't socially retarded I would have talked... Comment too long.

>>986194 I've read that people switch to laptops to drastically reduce power consumption. That said, you need to determine how much power your system will consume & how long you want to run it. Also need to determine how much sunlight & size of array you will need to be able to refill your batteries to cover your needs.

Looking at building a tiny house. My girlfriends parents have a pretty large area to put it on on their property. My main question for you guys would be what to do about shifting. Want to try and avoid having to walk to the main house to use the bathroom. What options do I have? I know my work had a small septic tank installed under an office portable and honey bucket came and emptied it every couple weeks but I can't find out how much that costs or if they would even do that for non commercial buildings. Any ideas or thoughts?
A separate septic systemfor your tiny house would probably cost more than the house itself (assuming you use used wood like many other timy house builders use.) And would also possibly violate that zoning laws that require a certain square footage for a residence. (Might try to twll you thag the house is no longer mobile.)
Many tiny houses use a wood chip composting toilet, which sounds horrendous in such a small space.
>>986151 The tiny house idea is great if using recycled materials and being clever about keeping costs down. But i do get your point how some people doing them dont get the point and waste more money that its worth on them.
>>986146 Ever thought of using a bucket with a seat on the top. You could make a proper frame in the house to make it look tidy. Then have stuff to scoop on top of it to keep it clean. Empty as needed.

>>986107 Don't like that one much. Got it for a Christmas present and it's good enough kinda but it's too small and runs all the time and literally tries to run away. It's too light, when the compressor runs it vibrates and spins and slides around.
>>986008 (continued) For metalworking lathes you can get accessories called 'expanding mandrels'. With those you could drill the hole through the beads, mount them on the mandrel and then cut on the outside surface... but I don't know if wood lathes have the same kinds of head stocks? None I've seen did; they only had headstocks meant for grabbing pieces of wood. I do metal tho, I dunno much about wood machines.

Hey /diy/, so I just bought a house that I'll be moving into next month and was wondering if there are any good handyman books out there I can buy for home maintenance/repair/upgrades that I can do myself?
I'm not entirely inexperienced with hands on labor, I went to vocational high-school for carpentry, and have worked various landscaping and manual labor jobs in my youth. I've also amassed quite the number of tools in my time as my family and friends discount auto mechanic and repairman, so I'm pretty well equipped to carry out most work. But seeing...

(I like this book more than any other for its simple explanations and detail of brand names for material, reads more like a guide than a textbook or reference)

I just finished restring and leaning this Tektroninx 502A, Im still waiting for 3 tubes that it has missing before I can turn it on for the first time after cleaning it,before it just made a dot, so the HV was there and it gaved some life but had missing 3 tubes and a transistor, now I dont think I will found a identical transistor so I will have to substitute it probably ,but its in the power supply so I ques it shouldn't be that complex
the missing transistor is a 2n214, with wat could I substitute it ??

>>985822 Full time amp tech here. NTE103A transistor will do the job. https://www.tubesandmore.com for uncommon nos tubes If you're building amps, you wont really have much occasion to use it. I only have to fire up my scope to track down parasitic oscillations. Do the filter caps while you're in there replacing the transistor. Cool piece of equipment you have there.
Hey guys I just bought a Dewalt combi drill but It only came with a 1.3 ah battery and it's nowhere near enough runtime. I need to get a second battery are all Dewalt lithium ion batteries ok to use? Also I saw some knock off batteries online which are half the price. anybody had experience with knock off batteries? pic related is the drill I bought.
>>985804 Yo, 2ah, 4ah, 5ah - as long as same-voltage XR, will work, just larger batteries, greater capacity, longa-runtime. Your original charger should be good for those as well. I asked previously for XR knock-off recommends, no bites - be likewise interested if anyone has?, or, go by AMZ recommends. Its difficult to say anyway, you need a long-term test to be sure - if they dont burst into flame on first use, its all positive from there on..
I'm working on a side hobby involving streaming/recording and voice acting. Every room in my house is shoddy for soundproofing, so I can easily hear my family and they can hear me. I don't want to interrupt them, but I also don't want to hear them in my background noise if I'm recording or if I'm on a stream (normally I'd use Audacity but it's still noticeable sometimes).
I'm moving out in roughly 3 months, so I'd just like advice on any audio proofing materials I should look for that I can at least bring with me, in case the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>985777 Lol. You might get some dampening but nothing spectacular. In order to be completely silent and vibretion proof, you need to create a floating room, where you have pockets of emptiness and soundproofing insulation surrounding the whole room so the noise that dips past your dry wall, sound proofing rubber, and another layer of drywall. Dry-rubber-dry-soundproof foam. For the floor you need to create a subfloor and insulate that. Qyality plywood and a layer of sound proofing rubber, then comes in the empty, your making...

>>985786 And if you can't. Get seinhesier hd598's. Theyre amazing for the price, sub 150. You get great low ends and high ends, very flat response. They WILL be underpowered if you don't hook them up to am external power source, i use an audio interface, my buddy uses logitech speakers that he can control vol and bass with. That's honestly your best bet to get the best mixes and be blast tunes you're making at high volumes without disturbing anyone. Good luck
Hello, I need some help and maybe you have an awnser to my problem, see I'm trying this new hobby where I want to engrave runes into onyx or other stone. The problem is I don't know what tool to use! Anyone has any experience with this or has tips and tricks?
Buy yourself a Dremel brand Dremel and some diamond tipped engraving bits. It'll run you around a hundred bucks for a quality one, but you'll be able to get a cordless one with five adjustable speeds for that.
>>985697 Disposable-blade utility knife. Spring for one with good ergonomics. A bulk pack of blades. Wood from a hardware store. Any wood will do, but start with a softer wood for practice. Cut workable chunks with a saw.
