I'm pretty interested in making a tobacco pipe, but I want to make it out of a solid piece of wood, and I was wondering if I'd be able to use a lit ember to burn out the wood in order to hollow out the bowl and the stem of the pipe. Additionally, I was wondering if I could get any advice on how to pursue this from anyone else that's tried. Pic related, but for simplicity I want to give it a straight draw and let gravity do all of the work hollowing it out.

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.

Run a 240 VAC motor from 120vac or 12dc source

I have 240vac motor from an old hvac compressor that I'd like to use but I don't have the wiring(plug) accessible. Is there a way to make it work with 120vac or even 12vdc?

Hi, sorry for crapping up the place but i have a question, and my google-fu didn't got me any closer to an answer. I got a noname controller that i replaced, but decided to mess around with, so i took out its motors and tried to hook things up to it so when it would rumble it would flash warning lilghts or stuff, or write a "driver" of sorts for things connected to it to work when i say that the controller should rumble through a program. I was running motionjoy to use this cotroller for games and now to test the motors. My problem is however, that i can't get anyting else other than the original motors to work, not even an other, similar motor. Is there some built-in limiter, or am i missing something more complex or plain obvious? Note that i'm using stuff i had laying around, and would like to avoid using relays, microcontrollers and the like.
Hey /diy/ so I'm not sure... 27 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /diy/ so I'm not sure if this goes in here or the auto forum, figured I'd ask here first.so here's the thing,I have a 2004 jeep liberty sport, and I want to add the option to turn my brake lights on with a 2 way switch,(as well as having them work as normal as well) my plan for this is to just solder a simple switch into the circuit and drill a small hole in the dash and put the switch there.what do you guys think? Good idea? Better ideas? I haven't taken anything off the vehicle yet to look at the wiring. Btw my skills include soldering, basic circuit knowledge, basic car knowledge.

How would I go about... 11 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
How would I go about jerry-rigging one of these into one of four 5.25" drive bays? Any ideas on a lock of some sort for it? I think I could build some sort of enclosure in the slot I want, and find some way to easily open the front cover of that slot, foregoing the drawer mechanism altogether.

Hey /diy/, I disassembled my e-cigarette to see if I could replace it with a rechargable battery. If I can't replace the battery with a rechargable one, is there another way I could put it to some other use? Pic related
Electric VS Petrol.Wondering... 10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Electric VS Petrol. Wondering how easily it is to modify a lil electric cart. Tempted to pick up a little go-cart for my nephew not sure about getting a petrol (even though chances are it would be easier /cheaper to modify / get new engines for as he ages) as im a little worried about neighbours (his parents live in a fairly real suburban area.

Can someone explain me what does it mean a solar panel having 100W? If I have this, current limiter and battery, can I run a 100W motor continuously 7/24?

How to steer

28 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey guys, I've recently recovered some components from local dumpsters and I'm thinking of making pic related (threw it together in photoshop). Basically, I want a to make a bicycle-shopping cart to aid in my trash picking, and because why not. Aside from any suggestions, I'm wondering how I could make this abomination steer-able. I'm a little mechanically inclined, but I'm new to messing with vehicles of any type.

Hey /diy/, Im setting up an auxiliary battery bank for traveling in my vehicle and I wanted to have a 10kWh lithium setup. I heard lithium prices are 200 per kilowatt but im finding LiFePO4 for like twice that. Do you know where I can find them for that price? Also any good bms suggestions? Should I add a supercapacitor bank as a buffer as well? pic unrelated, needed a picture and this is a new phone so all I have is dinner pix.

Fix a PSU?

12 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I lost my second enermax power supply now after about 10 years on this machine. I have a psu tester that shows it's not supplying the -5v on the cpu 20/24pin. Could this be as simple as opening it up and replacing a capacitor? I already purchased a cheap replacement but I'd like to fix this one and keep it as a back up if possible.
