router work

4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /diy/ Why do I have such a hard time using a router? I'm practicing on some projected where the work will be hidden, before moving onto other projects where the work will be visible. So far I have straight channel routing down. Today I was making an interlocking piece. Two pieces of oak, routed, so that one will slip over the other to form a x . I made a template to clamp to the work piece, and I am using a top bearing patterning bit. My inside edges look like shit. Wavy and messy, I had to clean them with sandpaper. Am I using the wrong kind of bit? Is my tool pattern off? ( with the bit rotating right, I am plunging into the wood, and pushing up the left side of the pattern, and pulling down the right side, to make the notch. ) Any tips on using a router? Pix is what I want to buy, currently using a pos ryobi

Making this end grain cutting cutting board here. questions. When gluing the wood together, is there a specific way to orient the end grain? I remember reading about that at one point. And second, crosscutting on the table saw as shown in this video http://youtu.be/m08XLrcaXWk?t=6m is this safe? I know crosscutting typically is a no go without a sled. I also don't think a miter saw would be a good choice.

Hey /diy/ Has anyone here any experience or knowledge with equipping a bicycle with an electric engine? I have really been considering it, heard a 1000w tire engine kit can get you going 30mph. How hard would it be as a DIY project? Is there a cheaper method then buying an expensive kit?

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?

World's leanest keychain

17 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I dreamed of a keychain which disappears in my pocket – or fits in my wallet. I needed to reimagine the outdated key design. Please share it with my campaign with your friends! http://igg.me/p/885797/x/8299836 Thin Is Key. Streamline your pocket with the world’s thinnest and lightest keychain! Your keychain: you interact with it every single time you open or close a lock - it is your daily companion. If it’s a bulky piece and you keep it in your pocket, it might be an unpleasant cargo. Your keychain is a personal statement: it is a fix item among your everyday carry. Do you love your keychain? You should because you probably spend more time tightly together than you do with your lover. Thinness is the key for a comfortable and elegant keychain. I love to optimize my things and the bulky keychain in my pocket was a pain in the arse – literally. I particularly hated it when I was running, riding my bike or had my fancy suit on.

Does anyone else have a favorite tool that (without meaning to) you end up having a mini-collection?

>Reach into my pocket after work yesterday >Pull this out I realize this is probably a relatively simple fix, but I'm bad at coming up with solutions to this kind of stuff. Anybody know how I could fix this, and still be able to hang it on my keys without worry about breaking? Replacements are quite expensive. Thanks, /diy/.

Would you buy this /diy/? Or 80% of the bits would end up unused? It is 38$. dx.com https://www.dx.com/p/pro-skit-sd-2310-100-pcs-assorted-power-bits-set-repair-kit-184861

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.

I live in an apartment that has a column in the middle of the main space. Not quite as big as in the pic, but still rather massive. Pure concrete. I would like to turn it into a punching/kicking stand but I'm not sure what the best approach to take is. Ideally it would be something I can remove and put away when not in use. I was thinking of sewing a massive "pouch", filling it with something and tying it around the column. Not sure if this is the best approach and what I would fill the pouch with, however. Any ideas?

So /diy, time to change my cheap bench PSU. I already have a lovely transformer (24v@3A) and the preregulating will be done with some good old 2N3055 in parallel and a basic ripple filtering. Now about the interesting part, i was planning in doing the voltage and current control with PIC, and the control circuits made with opamps and transistors/fets (no lt3080 or other linear regulators bs). The current control is pretty straightfoward, so i don't have doubts about that, but the voltage regulation is another thing.. I found to designs I like, maybe with modifications, Both are here, http://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/general-purpose-power-supply-design-7488/, the first in page 3 and the second in page 15. I like more the first one, any suggestions? critics? why should i not do that? why are you all fags? etc.

Sup, /diy/! I recently dug some metal spheres out of a dirt road and now I'm struggling to clean them of rust. I tried soaking them in baking soda and coka-cola but there was no visible change. Right now I'm rubbing the rust off with some kind of steel wool and its working, but at this rate it'll take me days to clean all 3 of them. Is there any quicker way to clean the spheres?

I got a 1st gen Nexus 7. Recently, I got the Nexus 5, so now I don't use my tablet anymore. Are there any guides that use the Nexus 7 in other ways than being just a tablet? Has anyone else re-purposed their tablet?
