how do I prevent leather from drying out and drying? I already used a mild leather cleaner followed by conditioner and when that didn't work, I used mink oil

Sup /diy/ I want to learn basic electronics like lighting and stuff for my projects (i make props). To this end, i recently purchased an electronic kit with the pic related components. Now that i have them, i'm confused as fuck. So do you guys know any online pdf's or links where i can learn and do things with the available equipment? I'm currently browsing youtube but if you guys know anything that can help me that would be awesome. thank you for your time.

Dual audio to Single audio

7 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So, I have a bunch of .mkv episodes of Berserk. They are dual audio but Japanese is audio option one which is what my tv detects when I try to play watch it on my tv. I want to remove the Japanese audio so my tv will play the files as english dub. I tried google but didn't really find anything helpful, just a bunch of stuff on how to add audio/subs to your .mkv files.

Hi, /diy/ I would like to take future flooding into account for when and if I build a home. I would like this building to persist and exist above the predicted line of flood waters. Unfortunately, I don't know how to find out where sea level is predicted to be between 50-200 years from now. I also am currently ignorant as to how to find out how much above sea level my current position and local region is Please don't turn this thread into a discussion about the validity of global warming vs. "it's all bullshit." If you don't believe it's occurring, pretend and call the thread a hypothetical, no different than if you were trying to build a structure to survive hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, nuclear fallout or zombie apocalypse

DUSTLESS SANDBLASTING

5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I have some questions about Dustless Blasting machines. So guys, a couple of months ago while stripping my car, I came a cross a youtube video of a Sandblasting machine that uses water along with the blasting media. This supposedly makes the blasting process quicker, reduces dust from accumulating everywhere, and makes blasting shit much cleaner. Now I'm interested in buying one and setting up a mobile blasting business. So my question is; these machines any good or are they bullshit? Any specific brand if blaster I should look at?. I'm located in Europe btw.

So I'm going for a steampunk style lava lamp. Where it looks like it is coming out of the wall. Still very much so in progress but I have no clue how to actually mount this onto a wall. Tips on how to do so and general design tips would be greatly appreciated. To to list- paint the base and arm when added Secure and raise top part to lava lamp Mount to wall Add a movable arm to the base for the I\o that I took from a bendable lamp

I am having trouble with clear resin. it dries hard but the out side is somewhat sticky, so it will pick up dust and stick to things and end up mucky ruining the purpose of having it clear

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...

Audio amplifiers

I'm pretty interested in electronics, just wondering if there is anyone out there with any resources that would teach me -from scratch- how to design and create a stereo amplifier and all the theory behind it.

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 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
