Okay /diy/ I want to try brewing spirits at home. Was wondering if anyone has any good tips/books to read. Or on the other hand, if anyone knows what to do/what I need. I know the basic fermentation of sugar and yeast to create ethanol but not really sure where to go, or what equipment I'll need.

Soooo high powered lasers are fuckton expensive. Light bulbs are not. Question: why can't we make high powered light cutters similar to laser cutters using light bulbs. A 5kw lamp costs ~$120 and a 10kw is ~$400. A 5kw laser is tens of thousands.

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.

I want to repair my own refrigerator. The bottom part gets warm in a couple of months. Have to melt the ice in the coils compartment. The bi-metallic defrost thermostat gives infinity in the multimeter even when in water with ice cubes for like 5 minutes. Should I replace the defrost thermostat? It is a 1998 refrigerator. Thanks.

Does /diy/ know anything about furnaces? I can't keep mine to stay going. The pilot lights and stays on just fine, however. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXU2eKIzQT0
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!

Buying a UPS for my computer. I am stuck with pretty much 2 choices where I live, not US. 2kVA, 1350W 1400VA, 700W I have spent all day trying to understand why the 2kVA is not 2KW and why the 1.4kVA is not 1.4kW. Where is the rest of the power going? Is it being wasted? I have almost no understanding of electronics. Can someone please explain this if possible.

Hello /dyi/, I've ordered a modchip modbo 4.0 for 3 bucks for my PS2 phat. How likely it is that I'm going to fuck it up considered that I've no experience in soldering? Does anyone have soldering tips or some kind of guide? Do I need to buy wires? Also what kind of soldering iron should I get? I already have one but I'm afraid the tip might be too large.

Hi /diy/, what is the minimal basic equipment needed for building some wood forniture at home, like a small table, a single drawer, a wall shelf, etc, using wood boards? Sorry for the very noobie/lazy question, I'm new to this.

I currently have this bed and I'm trying to design my bedroom around it. I'm redoing the floors next month so that's open for debate and the walls can be painted to any color. I just basically want a nice mature bedroom that suits a 20 something professional. I can all ways get rid of this bed and get something new, but I'd prefer not to. Any input would be wonderful.

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.

How much of a concern do you guys figure asbestos really is? My house was built late 70's, I'm tearing up some old laminate flooring. Its hard to find a straight answer on how much it will be to get it tested.

I'm a young artist working in the field of sound, I'd like to learn new things about acoustics to work on more fully fleshed installations and pieces of art, that engulf more complex concept. If any of you know any good books I could get a hold of? Also, I'd like to build my own speakers to be able to work on the visual side of my pieces and also be able to work on sound on another level. Is there any "speakers build 101" guide somewhere around here?

I need some help. I want to grow my own white mushrooms but I have no idea where to start. What to feed them, where to grow them, is it sustainable to grow them in a shed when temps regularly drop below -20 celcius where I'm from? or any other tips and tricks you have.

Hi, got a Samsung Galaxy S4 cheap in a pawn shop in London earlier, it's unlocked but it's blocked from my preferred network, Orange UK. I will take ANY UK network, I'm not picky. Can any of you tell me how to un-block the phone?

Help, /diy/, I need an adult... For the last few days, water has been spraying out of one of those little slits every time I flush. You'd think this wouldn't be a problem with the lid on, but it is actually getting through where the lid rests on the toilet and dripping a little bit out the back. It's not a huge deal but I don't want to keep cleaning it up. Do I need to replace things or is there another way to fix it? Do I need to call a plumber?

How would I hook up a handset to a computer. Is it as simple as just splicing the rj11 wires to a 3.5mm audio cable?
