Okay, so, I don't know if this means anything but I installed a new shower head as my other one was falling apart. It's actually the one pictured here. When I turn off the water, some water comes out where I've circled in the picture. I've tried tightening the nut more but it doesn't seem to make a difference. When the shower's running it's fine and it doesn't drip when it's off so it's not a HUGE deal but I don't know what to do to fix it or if it needs fixing.

This motor is off of an outdoor box fan. Can anyone tell me what that black box mounted on the side of the fan is called? What it's purpose is? Can it be eliminated? Any info is appreciated.

Circuit bending

I've recently started circuit bending an toy piano. It's now ready and I crave for more. I used only couple potentiometers stolen from old radio and single switch. What other components could I use, and experiment with?

Hi /diy/. Newfag here. So I basically have 2 black t-shirts with stamps that I don't like. Both stamps are from their respective factories and are your regular shirt stamp, but a little bold/salient; you can really feel them when you pass your fingertip over it. I want to take those stamps off because the shirts are great and I want to keep them. How do I do that? I've browsed youtube and found some videos showing how to take off similar stamps from football/soccer shirts. I think the material for that kind of shirt is different from mine, so is the process the same? I've googled and stuff but I'm still anxious of damaging 2 great shirts. Any tips? Here is one of the vids btw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9z4aemfDdAc Pic sort of related

Automaton

Hello everyone! I'm a fellow cosplayer and I enjoy to craft and make things myself. I watch anime and follow along with the vast amount of technology and diy ways to always fine things to tinker with and make better. So I was watching a show an I saw a cat like creature with an outfit. I'm looking to sew up a body but instead of stuffing the cloth I was wanting to give it a structure inside and then cast/mold silicon casing to give a soft structure to the touch. I'd like to first start working on the structure before patterns and sewing along with the stuffing. To be honest this will be my first time making a more lively automaton. I've done other projects including being in Robotics and other lego type structures to recreate actions and sensors along with movements in variable syncs. To start lets go basic and work off there to advance its structure. First: I'd like to make a wooden manikin with stiff poses. Second: I'd like to recreate now from wooden to a semi-functional structure with self movement. I'm looking to make this feline creature about 2-3' tall, stand on hinde legs and balance with a walk. Third: Continue forward with a structured skull with a outline just movable jaw up and down an eyes x,y & plausible nose wiggle. If I'm supplied a course of material that is feasible I'll post step by step progress through imgur or another source that would remain clean and detailed to help others. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Since my dream of creating a lifesize and functional mobile suit (aka gundam) isn't in my grasp of a budget but more in lines with budget build diy this would be great. Also if this is a success I plan to recreate a few pokemon hits as well.

I wanted to make my car into a place where I can sleep and live comfortably. How would I do this/start. My car is a Chevy Malibu Classic '04. Ideas I have had already: >turning the backseats into a bed of sorts. >putting something on the backseat floors to add bed space. >putting small curitans on all the windows that can be lifted and pinned to the roof of the car when in use. Any other useful ideas?

Im needing help on a radio install

15 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey, I am planning on installing a single din cd player and a single din CB radio into a double din opening. I dont really want to tap into the fuse box, but rather into the cd player wiring. The CB radio has 3 wires (red,black,orange). the red and black makes sense, but I'm lost on what I would do with the orange. Any help would be appreciated, I've been stuck on what to do with this. thank you. >pic related:desired outcome

Does anyone know how to build a guitar body? My dad is replacing the floor in out house and he bought some pine beams for it. There will be enough left over for me to build a guitar body out of it and I was just wondering if it'll be something I can do with no tools/machines and very little woodworking experience (just the 3 compulsary years at secondry school). My dad has the tools to cut the wood up and I think we have a vice to hold the wood in place when gluing it together My budget for the body is practically non-existant, but if push comes to shove I can spare around £50 maybe. I have until early september to do this The main things I need to know about are the positioning of the bridge/tailpiece and how to go about cutting the holes for the wireing and pickups. Also if anyone knows a good guide on how to wire up the electronics of a guitar that would be really helpful aswell >picture unrelated

tin jewelry

Hi /diy/! I have a question, how would I go about doing something like on the picture. I already know how to do simpler tin jewels and how to set stones in them, but I wonder about the bigger metal area. I haven't found anything that could help. What material is used? What technique? Is it possible to do at the simple home conditions, without a furnace or whatnot? Thank you! And. Jewelry thread you made - general thread.

Road Bike Restoration

Hey /diy/, I recently bought a bike relatively cheap off kijiji, and I'm fixin to restore it to something that looks more like pic related. I've looked up online best ways to go about this, and I bought a book on road bike maintenance, but I was just wondering if anyone here had any pointers or advice that might save me some hairpulling? Also, the bike itself is completely roadworthy, other than the back break pads needing to be replaced, I just wanna spruce her up real nice

Carpeting

Alright so my pals room has is carpeted but has ripped parts and smells like shit due to a dog that used to live in the room. Can we simply rip the carpet and leave the smooth concrete underneath? I realize it'll get cold as shit but does it really matter besides that? If so, are there any cheap alternatives to flooring? Wood and tiles are expensive as shit.

Hey guys, I just got a second hand entertainment center, and I need a bit of advice. It comes with an extra shelf to put more shit on, but there's no pegs or anything to hold the shelf up. I can't get a good measurement on the size of the holes, but is there an easy way to buy or fashion new ones? I'm in a small apartment without easy access to power tools or anything like that, so anything I make will be very low tech. Pic related.

Hey guys! I'm trying to build this lamp, I have a general idea on how to build the components but I'm looking for advice on the following things: 1) How do I attach the light socket to the pipe on top? All I can think of is using an adhesive like hot glue... But I feel like there is a better way. 2) How do I secure the pipe within the electrical box? I really have no idea on this one. Thanks!

Since I've got shit ton of jumbo-sized paperclips, I thought that I might be able to make a rudimentary ALU almost purely out of them (No electrical influence), has anyone made Logic gates out of paper clips before? Pic related is my attempt at making an AND gate out of them.
