Hi. I want to get into steel and wood crafting since I think it would be very cool and useful. Any tips on where to start? I've already taken some basic shop classes. (pic unrelated)

Long story short, the lil rubber thing in my 360 controller that springs the "A" button back up when pushed is getting stuck and won't spring back up like the others. I was playing KH2 on my pc and I guess the button mashing was too much for it to handle. Any way to fix this? Any ideas as to how I can get the reinforce the rubber to make it firm again?

Beekeeping y'all!

I have an opportunity to take up Beekeeping as a hobby (Or even profession). Do any of you guys have any experience with this? Essentially, I'd like to get a few deeps full of bees, with honey and wax production so that I can sell it to local beekeeping clubs. I've also taken a fancy to the idea of making mead and selling it, provided things go as well as I plan.

So I want to do something. I want to set up a touch screen interface with a large music library, and it has to conveniently fit into a car and be accessible while driving. I essentially need a tablet that is compatable with a storage method that can hold at least 1tb, but as far as I can tell no android/windows/apple product is capable of this type of accessing an external HD. Any ideas? pic unrelated

Anyone have an idea what this scanner/detector might be for? Some old man (~60) was walking on my footpath and kinda held it in front of my neighbours gate, then continues and waves it outside mine (he wouldn't have realized the gate belongs to my house as I approached.) He continued abit further but then stops to watch my gf and I as we entered into my backyard. He was a ~60 yo man shorts and polo and drove a ~2004 ford escape if that helps.

hey i had a highdea but idk if it wwould even make enough power to shoot a projectile think speargun. but instead of a spring you have 2 sets of magnets. one set in the projectile and one set in the launcher, the positive ends will be facing each other when you load it and lock the projectile into place, after doing so there will be a small battery that will connect to the magnet in the launcher that will create a stronger push for the projectile there would be a switch that will turn on the battery once the projectile is locked into place would it even create enough power to shoot anything?

today i got mad bros. yesterday I wired up a tv running hdmi cables through the wall cavity down to one of those retarded build in TV cabinets. the womans son saw this, got mad and pulled all the cables out. the problem is that the cables had been wired similarly but in a profoundly retarded way. he must have put the cables in his home made conduit when he installed it. now he built the conduit with chipboard and only so big as to barely fit the cables in which is so enraging. it also had lots of turns and twists instead of just going straight down. It was built in such a way so that if the gutters ever flooded and the wall flooded, water would pour all over the electronics inside the cabinet. sort of a scoop shape. the speaker cable was not in-wall self extinguishing cable but cheap thermoplastic coated cables that all melted together because chipboard is not conduit and you can't pack electrical cable into it because it's thermally insulative. instead of plasterboard/rockwall backing onto the wall it was all just melamine chipboard. with power points doubling as junction boxes with three power cords branching off from it. now you never put a power point straight onto flamable materials unless you fit it inside a fire proof box or have a fire retardant shell on the back. and so the son comes over and says it's a fire hazard and how retardedly i did it. when his shitty amateur electrical work is most definitely a fire hazard.

I'm not sure if this is the right board or not, but it's the closest one I see so here goes.... A few months ago my aunt passed away. We've been going through her old things, and we've come across this chest that we cannot find a key for. We don't even know what the key would look like. So these are my questions: 1. What would a key for this lock look like? 2. Is there a way we could open it without damaging it other than hiring a locksmith? Any input would be much appreciated.

Hey /diy/ I'm having trouble with my homemade spot welder and I can't seem to fix it. It welds sheets of metal but they don't bond to well. Also my secondary wire heats up after a few welds is there anything I can do to prevent this.

Hello /diy/I have a CB radio... 16 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hello /diy/ I have a CB radio (pic related) that I just took out of my vehicle (due to upgrade) and I would like to turn it into a base station in my garage. I would really like to build my own antenna for both the knowledge and learning experience. I have done some lurking on the web and looked at some home-built antennas, tutorials, theories of operation, etc. but I come to /diy/ looking for whatever knowledge you doers may have. I am open to any suggestions, links, recommendations, and advice on where to start. Ultimately, I am looking to build something relatively small, I do not want a massive antenna looming over my garage. So, Budget: < $100 Equipment/Tools: No problem Electronic Experience: VERY basic understanding of electronic fundamentals, absolutely no experience regarding radio theory. tl;dr : I would like /diy/ to personally suggest some information regarding the basics of building a base station antenna for my CB Thanks!

Hello /diy/, I am in need of your assistance, as i'm trying to undo a modification done by the previous owner of my headphone amplifier. The owner replaced the two 9v batteries with two wallwarts. for some reason i have 2 different voltage readings. See drawing. Why does this occur? I'm good with soldering, but not with understanding why electricity works as it does. The dotted lines represent between which points i measured.

What up /diy/ friend of mine gave me this hammock yesterday. It's pretty cold back here right now, so it's for no use outside. I was thinking I'd hang it in my room. But how should I do it? The room is 350 cm wide, hammock is like 320 cm. I thought that I could nail some clinch in the walls (brick) but would it hold me? How long and think clinches should I buy? I'm pretty big guy 190cm/80kg.

X-ray tube

X-ray tube 21 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey diy(nosaurs) I have a school project at uni. i have to do some data transmission using X-rays. The problem right now does not lie in the communication it self. More the part of getting hold of a useful X-ray tube, or finding the information about designing vacuum tubes.. I was wondering if any of your diy(nosaurs) would know of any good books / www or PDFs about vacuum tube theory. The reason that I need info about vacuum tube theory, is because traditional x-ray tubes does not utilize a grid for control, as they are only pulsed at slow rates, for my transmission I need faster modulation. The easiest way to achieve that, is by implementing a grid so the tube would resemble a Triode tube. The info that i found most useful so far: http://www.john-a-harper.com/tubes201/ http://www.r-type.org/static/grid01.htm
