Has any of you ever made a mold for aluminum out of paper clay? I fired paper clay many times and it always ended up with a crumbly texture that barely manages to keep from turning into dust.And I dried it for days before firing. So I would like to make this thread devoted to alternative methods of mold making for high temperature casting. I was thinking of using charcoal dust and organic glue , and I am thinking of casting something like 50-100 g not much heat. For those of you who do not know paper clay is clay with added processed cellulose fiber.It is done to give it more strenght while wet. Picture is an example of paper clay sculpture(not mine)

Say, does /diy/ have battlestation/workstation threads? Mine's pretty related I think.

I want to get a small quadcopter for automated flying inside, but every one I look at is way too loud. Are there any tiny quadcopters silent enough for inside use? I want something that's not louder than your typical house fan and I'm fine with building it myself.

I am going to move to an apartment soon, it has no furniture so I want to take this opportunity to do something interesting, like building a desk or to make stuff so it won't take too much space and also won't cost me a lot of money Are there any websites that can give me ideas on what to do with my room?

Hey guys, I want to make a wall in my house into an ant farm with acrylic sheeting. I've never had an ant farm before and don't know how feasible this is, if a colony can live in something that size, etc. Thoughts?

Xbox 360 Controller Skin

7 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
My girlfriends birthday is coming up and I would like to get her a customized personal Xbox 360 controller, but I don't want to pay the ridiculous amount most sites are asking. I was think of printing out a cut out for the controller and attaching it to the face plate with some sort of adhesive. After it was attached I wanted to put some protective coating on it so it would last. Does anyone have any suggestions or methods I could use?

Polishing Electronics

5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I recently started polishing up some of my shiny electronics with a car polish. In particular the Nu Finish, once a year car polish that I had on hand. It's not a wax and non abrasive, gives it a good smooth finish, I even tested it on screen protectors and right on the screen and it works fine, and helps bead up water. Anyone think of a reason this might be bad in the long run? Do any of you have a better method for restoring and maintaining your electronics?

Hey /diy/. I bought a little quadcopter yesterday to get my feet wet. Ultimately I'd like to build and especially program one myself, but you gotta start somewhere, right? So I was thinking to get some cheap RC toys first and try to "hack" their remotes and such. Are there any invaluable resources (tutorials, websites) I should be aware of? I'm a software dev and have some experience with writing firmware for ARM based gadgets with sensors and stuff, so that part can't be too hard I guess. But I don't know shit (except trivial stuff everybody knows) about the engineering / electrical engineering part. Specifically, I'd like to get an idea about the equations involved for calculating power/fuel usage per time related to weight and all that. But I don't know where to look for such basics because I lack the vocabulary to ask the right questions, if you know what I mean...

my local hobbyshop is closing down after over 60 years in business. They're having one huge close out sale on the third and everything must go. So my question is what do you think I should buy, they have everything from model kits to quadcopters and they will all be dirt cheap. I'm thinking of buying lots of tools like a high quality excel hobby knife set, model paints, miniature clamps, brushes and files. I really dont have many tools for general /diy/ stuff and I am hoping you guys could give suggestions on important things I should get while I can get them really cheap. I am also going to get models and hopefully make something like the pic. The store is Als Hobby Shop for any of you guys that live near chicago.

You could take this (see picture) and built a small road-proof home on it. Could be great for road trips or single budget living.

So what's /diy/'s experience with spy gadgets and gizmos? I'm in the market for some micro cameras and super microphones that can record and show real time and/or listen from a distance. Is there a place to buy these? I only know of the ones that are in spy teddy bears and such, and i think those are lame and 90s. It's 2014 there must be some new stuff out there. And if not, anyone have any idea on how to make spy gear? Is there anything that can transmit video at some frequency other than the 802.11 wifi? Any portable spiderbots that can scale and stick/set itself onto a wall? Not gonna lie, this will be used for perving and general fun

I'm doing a music box and was going to use the thing from my pic but I think an eletronic one that starts when you open it is a lot better. The problem is that I've never worked with eletronics and have no idea what I'm supposed to do. Can you guys help?

drilled holes in my guitar fretboard for LED's im going to install, done it in another guitar no problem. Except this time I bought a guitar neck from china and when I drilled the holes into the fretboard, the plastic dots which are 6mm in diameter popped out. Now I have 6mm holes for 5mm Leds. What can I put around the leds to increase its diameter but sit firm and flat in the fretboard?

Hey /diy/ I know some of you guys are home brewers and such, so I am wondering what you guys use for your base product and how much it cost. I have been particular to wines and apple cider so far and even though the price is pretty cheap, i want it to get cheaper. So far i have been buying juice from the supermarket which the cheapest I have been able to get from there is about $6/gallon or $4/gallon for apple juice at a costco because i was able to go with someone there but i doubt ill be able to to that very often. I have been trying to find cheaper alternative without letting up on quality and most things I read on the internet is to go for juice concentrates, but either it is just as expensive as buying juice in the bottle or even more. I have been trying to find places I can buy large amounts of juice concentrate in the in the new york city area but have not really found much that is cheap enough for me to not buy from the store. So what do you guys do/recommend for getting juice for wine and cider at low prices? ITT: How to poorfag and still make tasty alcohol. inb4: sugar water (I tried it and its plain and taste like crap)
