Does anyone have an idea on where I can purchase gears/spurs and racks in person? I need two very small racks and spurs to create a project that I'm doing. I would like to weld each of the tracks to two tiny rods and have the middle square be attached to four spurs that run along the tracks. The entire length must be six inches, the track itself must fit inside 1/4th of an inch and be as wide as 1.5 inches. I live near most major hardware stores but I can't seem to have any luck. Are there specialty stores that I can go to? (NYC/Long Island)

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

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

So we all agree that strawbale is the best material if your country has code for it, right?

so I'm building an electric bike and I'm wondering what /diy/ knows about solar cells. at the moment it seems like an incredible amount of engineering to implement this. I want to build solar panels that fit onto the wheel hubs. apparently solar vehicles and solar plants in general can be configured to integrate microinverters to compensate for shaded parts of the wheels without dramatically affecting the output of the cells. In this way a moving bicycle could produce a marginal amout of power that makes it feasible. storing 50w of power for a minute while waiting for a light to change at an intersection and then using 200w that power for 15 seconds it takes you to get up to speed would significantly lower battery usage. here's a site with more information and apparently there is microscale production of these sorts of wheels but the cells are used more like decals with little if any usable power actually charging the bike because well, only richfags and hipsterfags live in christiania

Hello there. First time I have come to this board as I am lacking definate advice. I want to put up the following mirror. It is 55 inches by 35 inches. Not much idea about the weight. I want to put it in a dab plasterboard wall (picture following) Looks like the previous owner mounted something using some fixings, I have no idea whether these will be strong enough for the mirror.

Is there anything in the law which says that I cannot try to make my own medicines, specifically antibiotics? These would only be used by me. Nobody else. I would not allow anybody else to use them and all the testing would be done on me. I speciffically aim to make penicillin using the mould from a cantaloupe

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 /DIY/! This thread is about cooler stereos (or bike, cart, etc). Post yours and about your experience making them! I am currently designing a small waterproof one using an engel 13qt drybox/cooler, a pair of Pyle marine 6.5s and a single Pyle marine 6x9 (bridged) on a 300w 4 channel Nitro mini amp. I am worried about the battery though. The biggest that will fit is a 12v 18ah scooter battery. Do you think that will be big enough?

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.

Hey /diy/nosauers. I'm a noob at electronics, but quick question: I have a small solar panel which says [pic related] on the back. Can I use it for charging a 12V motorcycle battery?

I am looking for help. I am volunteering for an early years organization and was tasked with manning a table with a focus on dads. I am wondering if you guys could links some templates for making things out of duct tape. Or some other things that might be easy and cheap for fathers and their kids to make. Thank you in advance for your time.
