I've got a load of raw copper that I've harvested from various goods such as cable, from electrical appliances etc., and was wondering once I turn them into bars, where abouts can I take them for maximum profit? I don't really want to take them to the scrapyard. Although the scrapyard pays alright I think I'd rather sell them off to a smelter or something rather than the dirty scrapyard merchant. I'll save the scrapyard for shitty bits of steel. How can I find a smelter around my area? Do you guys have any input? Thanks.

I would like to make a true random generator similar to this one, but one that is capable of generating 5 numbers at a time. Is there a way other than a geiger counter or measuring atmospheric noise to get near true random?

I'm looking for a way to move a piston electronically. I've searched for linear actuators, but those are too slow and cost way too much. I also saw solenoid actuators, but I haven't found one that has a 3" stroke. Is this something that can be diyed, or am I not able to into google?

I thought you guys might help me, if I've mistaken the board I apologize. I'll just greentext my issue. >come home >hear cracking noises from the bathroom >can't see anything, but still hear them for about 30min >think the neighbour is doing something fishy >go in the bathroom again >see this (pic related) Called the emergency services but they won't respond unless there is water leaking or fire. I'm at my parents apartment now, and I'll go check it out tomorrow after work. Any input is welcome.

I got a few gift stainless steel blades I don't really care too much about. The kind of stuff that people assumed I liked, and is just taking up space. Anyone have guides to sprucing these sort of items up with grinders and torches? Pic related, going to blue them. Then use the tape stencil method to buff out designs in the blued surface. I may even try etching and branding the wood on them. Ideas to make them actual wall hangar material is ideal.

Sup /diy/. How does one go about building/buying/leasing a rig to test headphones on, and what software would you use? I'd want to measure the FR curve, square wave responses, etc. Reason being, I'm working on a pair of cheap plasma headphones and want to see how awful they turn out. I've already got the arcs running quiet from a pair of ZVS-style flyback drivers, gonna try to get sound of them when I have time. Proposed donor frame is a well-used pair of Grado SR-60s. "Blah blah blah you're going to kill yourself etc"-- Don't mind that, how do I measure those bitches? Pic unrelated.

I want to learn more about audio so i decided to build my own boombox I will be using this amp >http://www.ebay.com/itm/TPA3123-2-1CH-2x25W-50W-Subwoofer-Amplifier-Kit-Board-Assembled-1PC-/261382432943?pt=US_Amplifier_Parts_Components&hash=item3cdb9b68af The only thing I can't find is a 50w subwoofer and some 25 watt speakers because there are so many choices. Any audiophiles that can recommend me some speakers or brands?

/diy/ Have any of you ever come across anime wall scroll replacement parts, I'm in need of the plastic poles that are used to hold the fabric in place and the hooks/caps. I'm sorry I can't give you much more than that but honestly I've spend days looking for replacements/emailed companies and more but I can't seem to find these fucking god damn fucking poles (Yes I'm stressed :c) I've asked all the anime boards but yeah they didn't seem to want to help, the poles got damaged when moving. Also If I can find these poles or one step better if you can offer a much cleaner, better looking way of hanging these I'm welcome to ideas!

Hey /diy/. I had a bit of a neat idea involving Home Automation, but I dunno if it's more /g/ or not, anyway... I had the idea of using a RaspberryPi or a Cubieboard (or maybe even an Android dongle?) to drive a home automation system that primarily revolves around identifying weather a certain person is at home or not (and display how long they've been gone etc.). I could probably detect this through RFID tags or by detecting if their phone/device is connected to the home Wifi, but I wanted to know what the best was of going about this would be? RFID tags require the person to press against something (and do it every time they come and go) which might be forgotten, and the phone method easily breaks if they don't have wifi/the phone itself on. Any other ideas I could use to identify them?

Hello, it's my first time here, very cool place. I'm a father of 2 boys (12 and 14) and want to build them one of those, see picture. But I want to change it a bit so that it looks more inviting. Any ideas how to do that and maybe how to make it look differnt/cooler or upgrade it so they have to cooperate more ? I appreciate any ideas, thanks !

Getting around to doing some car interior DIY This is my knob I have to twist to open the sun/moonroof. The thing is after folding out, you should be able to push it up and it should stick, unfortunately it doesn't do that. After taking it out I see that there is a bolt that broke on one end (pictured) the other side is one of those heads with no screw or anything, just flat. What are these called? I want to get another one of these, pull this one out and pop in another, I've never actually dealt with bolts that have no tool slot

RC Help?

Hey everybody, I've got a university project due Monday and we just screwed up badly. Basically it's a RC Blimp, problem is we have two drive motors, and we managed to burn out one of the ESC's. Since it's too late to get a replacement shipped, I need to know if I can head to the local hobby shop and get an ESC that doesn't match the working one. Will I get the same motor performance out of both? Thanks
