I'm trying to record audio onto VHS tapes. The output is a SCART to RCA converter, being sent to a 1/4" phone jack input. To record, I've switched the direction on the SCART to RCA converter and I plugged the phone jack into an output. I've tried recording audio but nothing goes on the tape. I know it's recording fine since after a minute or two the tape changes back to the old audio. But it always records silence. This is a pain in the fucking ass. Shit.

What is up DIY? I would like to know if anyone here has built pic related. It is an inductive charger and i think it would be cool as shit to make one. I have seen too many variations on making one so my question is: >Has anyone made one successfully? if you have can you provide the link or even some tips on making them? i'll begin the build as soon as i get some input- (is it even worth making/cheaper to buy...)

Salvaged Webcam

16 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Ayo /diy/, I salvaged a lot of components from a dead laptop and have been working on using them in various projects. One of the bits I pulled out was the built in webcam. I'd like to convert this for use on my desktop or maybe an arduino project, but I don't have this type of connection on any of my ports (didn't expect to). Do you know the specific name of this kind of connector? Is it just a serial connector? Once I know that an adapter is a simple find.

Tensile Net/ Shirt

9 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I was wondering if it would be possible to have a tensile net (for suspended sleeping when camping like a spider's web) that doubles as a clothing article? How would I make it? How would I make sure it doesn't look bold, like I didn't just walk out of the 80's (probably wouldn't be that closely knit anyways, at least able to fit arm through holes). Doesn't have to be shirt.

Hey, I am searching for a beginner drillpress. I looked around but i dont know, wich points are important to look out for. I want to drill wood and metal and have about 250€ budget. I also only have 220V so the 400V units are of the table.

Hi /diy/ apprentice sparky britbong here. I need to remove a double socket from a downstairs ring. It was once in a wall that was knocked down and my cousin has hid it under the floor boards but obviously it can't be left there. How would I go about fixing this? Sticking it in connector block and leaving it under the floor? tl;dr How to rid a socket from a ring and is it safe under the floor?

I'd like to learn some about how man-made objects come to be. I find it strange that there generally appears to be little interest in this facet of life, when virtually everything around us was shaped by humans. The spoon that I use to eat soup - somebody was in charge of creating it; where did that begin; what was the process of creating it. Also, I'm interested in how this fits into a theory that I have about how sophisticated man-made objects subtly influence our thinking and behavior in modern times. With my generation at least, we were born surrounded by advanced technologies that are so polished, that they merge effortlessly into our picture of the natural world. In the past, it might have been easier for the mind to separate the two, but barely any conscious thought is made today about what is man-made, and what was always around. I sense that this new world might have 'muddied' the mind - there is no escape from human influence, and because our minds are sensitive enough to appreciate the concealed motivation behind the creation of an object, as well as the differing attitudes of life that radiate from say, an iPod, and a knife, this might make thinking in the modern world a bit suffocating. /diy/ might be the appropriate spot on 4chan to ask for knowledge on this subject. If you have documentaries, or videos, or something relevant, please share.

So gimme some advice. Basically I need a way to fit an entire computer with a GPU inside a 5.6 inch metal tube. It's 4 feet long but I really would only have about a foot, since the rest of it will be full of mechanics and some other stuff.

First off, I'm aware from personal experimentation that a grown adult man will not fit inside of a regular garbage can, I just didn't think it was necessary to draw the stick figure to scale. Do you guys think this will work? Any tips or key components that I may have forgotten? It seems like such an awesome and simple idea I can't believe I'm the first to think of it. Also, share your epic bongs or future epic bong ideas ITT

Hey guys I'm planning on making an RC fan powered car. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for where I could find what I'll need. So far I'm planning on just getting an RC car from the store and then taking the top off, removing the motor, and attaching the fan. My main concern is wiring the fan to the circuit board and a brake system. Any help?
