I want to create my own tesla coil. Would this be possible to do if I don't have more than a hundred dollars to spend. I also have enough knowledge in electronics and electricity as a second year electrical engineering student would have.

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?

Anyone tried this sort of chair, built up with rubber strings. I'm tired of an ass getting hot because of sitting on a cushion so this kind of chair seem effective at letting bodyheat away. But is it actually any good?

SLA printer resins

The water tank in my loft... 5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
The water tank in my loft looks like it is broken. It still works but I am worried it is going to burst open at some point and cause a lot of water damage. I would estimate it has been in this condition for ~10 years however as I very rarely go in the loft I cannot be sure. Anyway I was wondering, do houses even need water tanks these days? Can I just connect the input pipe into the output pipe, effectively bypassing the tank altogether? Is there some pressing need to have a water tank and have to buy a new one?

Wasn't sure if I should post this here or /an/, but I've been dealing with scabies for a couple of months now and I was wondering if any of you fine folks had any remedies that may be effective in getting rid of them. I've tried Permethrin twice already and it hasn't been very effective (and it's cost prohibitive to continue using it). I've also been taking very hot showers which seems to be killing quite a few of them off, but they keep coming back. Any help would be much appreciated.

Shower leaks, no way to shut the water off to change the rubber that stops the leak. I think whoever lived here before forgot to install a water valve.

Hi /diy/, I have an unlimited source of these glass things, they come from non refillable insulin pens, they are divided in two types, to the left the wider tube (9,5mm) but with a narrow top (3mm) and to the right a more narrow tube (9mm) a bit longer (both are around 63mm) and with a top hole a bit bigger than 3mm. Both are fragile and have perfectly smooth inner walls, I also saved the rubber plungers. What can I do with them? >inb4 throw them away. Btw I already tried a tilt switch.


CrossBow 25 posts and 8 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi diy, I would like some input on making a crossbow, what would be a good, cheap material for the bow part? and the actual cord? I already have a frame, also trigger/cocking mechanism thoughts would be graciously accepted. My general plan is to have the frame ( it's one of those steel bars they use for the cheaper stop signs) and have some sort of smaller coaster inside that to hold the bolt and push it forward, this coaster will probably also be used a s a cocking body, for the box I was thinking PVC, and the chord would be parachord pic is just a project I did before

I need help deciding between pursuing a trade. I've narrowed it down to either HVAC or electrician. The downside to electrician is that even after getting an AAS from a vocational college, I'd still have to work for 4+ years to be considered an actual electrician, whereas HVAC technicians can jump into a $25/hr job straight after getting certifications. What are your thoughts?

Please don't hate me. I'm rewriting my website again and I have decided that I want to be able to change something that is on all of the pages without actually modifying every page. To do this would I write the html inside of the css or do I need to get into php or something like that.

Hey /diy/, I come to you again, looking for guidance and solutions to two basic problems. I volunteer for a local group that does bake sales to raise money for our charity. We require two displays for cupcakes, and other baked goods. Both designs we came up with are generic as fuck and have already been done before. However we can't afford the commercial versions that are sturdy enough or the right size. I've attached the first design, and will be attaching the second below. Anyone have any ideas on how to build these? We require them to be able to fold or collapse down to very small height for transportation and storage, but be sturdy when in place. Budget for each should be within 100$ USD. Size for the three tier plates should be about two foot long for the base plate, and square. Next one should be 1 1/2 ft, and finally 1 foot. Same goes for the shelf display for sizing, and they should both fit on a standard size folding table. Thanks in advance gents.
