Cordless to wired

29 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
My gf's father wants me to convert his cheap cordless drill to non-cordless because he is tired of charging his shitty batteries. It is 18V. Can i use a 19V 70W (3.5ish amps) laptop power supply to drive that drill or it will be too weak?

yes do it

dat glassblowing

Sup, /DIY Glassblowing question here. What's the trick to blowing a large bubble from borosilicate 16mm tubing? No matter how hard I try I end up with the picrelated sizes at best. If I heat the glass more it just melts away before I start blowing. If I blow harder I end up with a glass "film" at one size of the bubble instead of solid glass.

I have a leak coming from my hot water supply hose, just under the nut on the end that connects to the faucet. Do I have to replace the entire hose, or are there rubber washers inside that I can replace alone? Should I use pipe tape? (not my pic, my leak is coming from the other end of the hose)

Hey /diy/. I'm somewhat of a tool collector and I'm addicted to buying tools. Can you tell me if this site is legit? has anyone bought from them? The prices are like 1/3 or bigbox sale prices; ride on mowers for $500 tools-top.com is it too good to be true?

Hello /diy/, I do a lot of metalworking as a hobby, currently I am working on a sign for a friends business. I am going to be making it out of steel, brass, and copper. I have not brazed copper to brass before and I am wondering if /diy/ has any advice or tips for brazing copper to brass. Please note, I am using an oxy-acetylene torch, and I am working with solid stock, NOT pipe/tubing. I am looking for advice on brazing, not hard soldering.

Anybody have experience using this or other brands of latex foam? I want to seal some ~1 inch gaps, but I don't want to use caulk or Great Stuff foam to permanently seal them. I've heard cured latex foam described as having the consistency of a cupcake, which would be perfect for my needs.

How the fuck do you remove this bastard without breaking it???

Hey y'all. I was recently given a mandolin. Excuse me as I don't know terms and such to describe it well, but the strings have bent the neck back out of the base. it's not the neck that's warped but the heel is coming out. The glue has broken as well as the finish. Here is a picture. I had used wood glue and it held for awhile, with only a minor gap.. But a couple months later, here I am. Does anyone have a solution besides taking it to the shop? Thank you much!

Where does one even start to begin when it comes to learning how to build a shed/small house/cabin/etc? It's obviously not as simple as buy a shitload of wood + nails/etc and start throwing shit together. I'm looking to want to build my own small home, not as big as a regular home, but not one of those tiny house shits either. I'm looking to have solar/self sufficient energy, so that may play into it. And there's also the whole building code/permit etc bullshit, which I know absolutely nothing about.

Painting help Ive repained several guitars before; each one was a total experiment. The spray painting went fine; thin layers that are well cured.. but its the clear coat that trips me up. Now i got 2 more just waiting to be clear coated and i need to do this right. What ive used before >Spray clear Wipes right off. Not a durable shell at all... its like dust. >Brush on waterbased polycrylic 3 guitars were done this way years ago. One feels hard-ish.. Finger nail cant scratch it but on a corner that presses up against me, it wore away and exposed the paint which also rubbed off another done this way feels hard at first but if you press your fingernail into it, you can tell its gummy a bit.. It also stuck to some of the hardware and once when i took that off, it began to peel like latex. So, whats the best thing to use? It needs to be hard shell and really durable for constant rubbing on clothing; just like the factory clears that they come with. Im too afraid of something like Pour-On cuz its too viscous and i heard some are dark yellow in tint.

So I'm about to pick up a 65in TV from CL. My main goal is to build a Fresnel Lens w/ the screen. Has anyone else done it? How about other parts of the TV? Anything cool I can use them for? How big was your Fresnel lens http://www.instructables.com/id/Giant-Fresnel-Lens-Deathray-An-Experiment-in-Opti/ http://www.cnet.com/products/mitsubishi-ws-65819/ This website here is selling Fresnel Lens for $400 (WOW).

My friend is going to make 2015 diary book by DIY. And he showed me the page of Public holidays in Japan like the image. Is not that bit odd?
