Imagine for a moment I have a clean plastic barrel. I've taken the lid off and placed the barrel outdoors in a non-sheltered area. It rains very often here. Within a few days, it should fill to the brim with water. Ipso facto this will earn me a constant supply of drinkable water. Where have I gone wrong? Where is the misstep of logic?

Source for Very Long Springs?

6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm looking into finding a source for some very long springs like those used to make this instrument, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45m0TkLpmQg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71GUmCFznkg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm4ziVpV008 So far, I've found "garage door extension springs", but they don't seem to be the right kind as the ones in the above videos seem to be less bulky. You can see their thickness better in this video around 44 seconds into it, but I think the first video above uses a thicker spring than this one which is why it sounds so different. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vCdymtRp3k

Hi /diy/, I'm halfway through building something, and have thought about using capacitive buttons instead of physical. I've seen a few cheap 'modules' on ebay that are designed for arduino, though i'm wondering if there is any way I can use capacitive buttons without having to incorporate an arduino/custom microcontroller circuit. Do 'standalone' capacitive button modules exist? Any info would be great, thanks!

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.

Method for keeping snakes out of yard?

24 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I have a fairly large yard, near the end it's mostly brush with a stand of maples and cottonwoods in one corner (this end borders a large nature area with wetlands). Further in there's a small patch of lawn, before a large garden with native grasses and wildflowers towards the house, which includes a few artificial ponds and marshes. The garden and maple/cottonwood stand attract all kinds of wildlife from the nature area, and among those are snakes. The main culprits are garter snakes, copperheads, and water snakes, although I'll also see rat snakes and milk snakes. I don't really mind them, but my husband and his parents can't stand the thought of snakes on the property, even things like garters make them uneasy. Most of the recommendations I've seen for getting rid of snakes involve clearing brush, something I don't want to do. Is there a way to repel snakes that doesn't involve any major alterations to the landscape?

Shipping Container Home

8 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I get out of the usmc in about a year, and was considering building one of these. I lack every possible skill needed, and was wondering the cost. Given that I can learn to weld, or go to a trade school for anything that is majorly needed. My step father was a carpenter, and my father works on heating and air. I was wondering about how much it would cost to build a house out of 6-10 containers, and if it's practical to rely on myself and/or one to two more people to build this?

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?

I was thinking about going out and getting five cheap 10 dollar webcams and using them as wireless security cameras. People steal $400 worth of pecans right from my yard while at work. Every fall I need to have something done about it. What do?

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.

Charge Input Selector Circuit

6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I need to figure out a way to automatically choose between 2 power sources for a charger of sorts that I'm working on, (pic related) I need it to be able to automatically detect if A (say, a power outlet, or something) is suupplying enough charge, and to B (an internal battery) as a charging source whenever A is supplying too little or no charge. The reverse also needs to be true as well. (Stop charging from B if enough of a current is detected from A, and switch to A) Ideally, It would be mechanic, but I'm all out of ideas. Something like digital logic would need to be constantly powered to operate,(I think?) and because it's something portable, I don't want the internal battery being drained unnecessarily just to sustain the switch circuit. I'm stuck, so if anybody has any insights, they're more than welcome. Thanks!
