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 want to raise the height of my bed

4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Is it possible to raise the bed in my room enough to position a desk under? like the bunkbed combos. Now i'm sleeping directly on a queen mattress and want the extra floorspace. I would take the boxspring out of the project if need me. So how likely is this possible?

Good day /diy/. I intend to purchase some land in my city and build upon that land a recording studio and rehearsal rooms. The building itself will be a timber construction and be approximately 180 sqm, with the studio staple of the 'room within a room' design. I'm going to hire an acoustically inclined architect for general design of the building but I intend to construct it myself. I have relatively little experience of this though, but obviously I would like to keep costs down by doing this myself. I have 6 willing friends with various different experience, with the most relevantly qualified being a bricky. my question is: will building this myself be feasible or should I just fork out on a building firm? I live in the UK, East Midlands specifically, if this helps.

Hi everyone, first time here and I have to say, I'm impressed by what amazing projects people can accomplish by themselves. This might not be appropriate for DIY, but did any of you hear about diy teeth alignment? I can't afford to spend 8k+ on getting a single damn tooth aligned with the others... I was thinking about ways of doing it myself, with a 3D printed orthodontic device for example, but I need advices please. Has it been done? Is it possible?

Hey /diy/ So I was wondering if I could get a little help. I am making a lamp for a friend for her birthday. She wants a "steampunk" style lamp and I have everything worked out in my head but am running into a small issue. The lamp that I designed has a voltage gauge built into it. I have exactly zero idea where to get one, what kind i need (safe to use on wall power), and how to wire it into the lamp. Basically, the wiring part will go plug to switch, switch to voltage meter, voltage meter to bulb. Any suggestions? I got a month to get this thing done and I realllllly want to get started as soon as possible. Thanks in advance bros.

So thought I would run an idea past you guys. So right now I live in a shed to save on money for schooling but I kind of want to rebuild it since the person who built this did a shit job. The wiring started a small fire and so I run an extension cord now and there are leaks everywhere I had to patch up. Also it wasn't leveled at all and was built right on the ground. Anyhow for the new shed it will be 10 x 10 x 14 ( Largest I can make it with out having to get a building permit ) and will be a flat roof shed (Will have a tiny incline for rain ). I was wondering how much support a roof like that would need if it snowed up to 2 feet before I could shovel it off. Also does anyone know a good insulation that's thin since it gets down to -40 degrees where I live in winter.

Is there a way I could... 13 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Is there a way I could possibly fix this shitty stand and level out these monitors? The center monitor is currently already sitting at its lowest point and the two edge monitors are currently at their highest yet the right one is ~1" below the center and the left one is ~2" below it as well. I've fiddled with this for hours and have succeeded at getting nowhere. This is driving me insane. I can't even figure out a reason for the height disparity let alone fix it. Here is the stand and listing: http://www.amazon.com/Deluxe-Monitor-Desktop-Supports-002-0019/product-reviews/B006JG7G2E/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_three?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addThreeStar&showViewpoints=0 Assume I only have very basic tools like screwdrivers, wrenches and Allen wrenches, and stuff. No drills, dremels, or spare screws and washers. Also some screws are starting to get stripped. All monitors are the same model, ASUS VS229H-P. 1920x1080 21.5". One is a May 2012 model that feels very slightly lighter than the two June 2013 models, it is currently sitting in the center. I can take more pictures if necessary.

First of all, this isn't my laptop. I googled this image. I need a way to keep my laptop cord in the port. It's really loose and slides out when I move the laptop, and it's killed my batteries, I've gone through a couple because of it. What's a good way to rig up a more secure connection? Other than tape that I'll have to re-apply over and over. I was thinking a hook and hoop sort of system, or maybe velcro. Throughts?

Hey /diy/. I have no experience in building stuff but I want to build a loft bed. I don't own any tools aside from a battery drill, a hammer drill and the usual bunch of screw drivers and bits. I'm sure I'll need to buy some tools accessories to get the job done, but the options are so vast. pic related is my rough sketch of the finished bed. It's just a scribble of the initial idea. I'm currently working on more sophisticated and accurate concept drawings but this will do for now. The bed is going to be 200x180 cm and I wanted to leave some room surrounding the mattresses for easier maintenance. The bed must be a rock solid construction because the walls in my apartment are shit and I am a tall and heavy dude (110 kg). Maybe you got some tips for me on this. Thanks in advance. :)

Been looking into building my first 3D printer, mainly focusing on the prusa i3, but I'm trying to investigate other options as well. Anyone who recently built a printer? What did you build? Were there any issues? What was the final cost? Thanks /diy/
