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.

how does one get into auto repair, /diy/? i'm not even sure if this is the right board for my question, but screw it. i've always wanted to get into fixing up old cars like they do in 60s american movies but i have no clue where to start. i mean, how does one acquire a working, applicable knowledge of how to tinker with a car's engine and all that stuff? has anyone got any books/sites/whatever to point me in the right direction? cheers pic unrelated

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?

'Tiny House Nation' explores the new trend of downsizing your life into 400sqft or less

0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
In “Tiny House Nation,” renovation experts and hosts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, travel across America to show off ingenious small spaces and the inventive people who live in them, as well as help new families design and construct their own mini-dream home in a space no larger than 500 square feet. From a micro-apartment in New York City to a caboose car turned home in Montana to a micro-sized mobile home for road tripping – this is a series that celebrates the exploding movement of tiny homes. From pricey to budget friendly, “Tiny House Nation” is not a typical design show, but one that proves size doesn’t always matter – it’s creativity that counts.

rowers

Anyone have any idea how to make a fly wheel similar to the one on the concept 2 rowers? I plan on building a rowing machine from wood (as the base at least), loosely based on the bungee cord rower on instructibles. I'm more interested in a fan dampener system tho. attached is the concept 2 rower if nothing else, homemade fitness equipment thread

Free television broadcast

2 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Im moving into my rv this week. While looking at long range wifi antennas i started seeing 150 mile UHF and VHF antennas. Im wondering what kind of broadcasts i can pick up from something like that and how difficult it is to build antennas like this yourself. I expect local fox, cbs and pbs broadcasting with the digital side of the antenna. I guess im curious as to how much better it can get. Any diy non monthly television folk out there?

Listen to my tale of woe and head my words: don't lend your tools to anyone!

41 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So I have this idiot brother in law, you know the type. Dude's shitbucket car dies on him and he wants to borrow some of my tools to "fix it". I grudgingly agree and lend him a socket set, some wrenches, etc and tell him anything he breaks or loses he pays for. He says it will take him a weekend. About a week later I call him up to ask him to return my tools. He says he hasn't fixed the the car because hes waiting on a part but he'll return them right away. Another week goes by, nothing. I call again. He's dodgy now, makes excuses. I see him at 4th of July driving his shitbucket car. "Hey fucker, your cars fixed, you got my tools?" "Uhh, yeah dude one sec." I shit you not he gets in his car and drives away. I tell his Dad this shit (he is living at home still) and dude agrees we'll have a talk with him, so I follow them home (dumbass is still living at home and hes older than me). Dudes nowhere to be found but I find my tools are in their garage packed up in a corner... covered in fucking rust! Every single metal tool, which were all chromed, are completely fucked. Dudes Dad tells me that derp was working on his shitbucket car out in the driveway and that he left the tools out there for like a week. Every day at 6am the lawn sprinklers were hitting these things. Fucking douchebags now owes me about $300 in tools and I will collect. That said, I salvage what i can. The finish on all these tools is destroyed. Each one has pitting on 30-40% of the surface, but they are salvageable. All except my 1/2 inch drive ratchet, which is frozen. So heres my problem: I've taken this fucker apart as far as I can but I can't get the toggle mechanism apart and I can't find any guides online that explain how. Pic related, its the exact same model (Craftsman 943797). I've soaked the thing in evaporust but that stuff can't get into some of the pieces because the clearance ti too tight. What do? Pics to follow.

Not really knowledgeable in wood. What's a good type of wood to make a PC desk from? Basically all I want is a nice long sturdy surface to hold a PC tower and all the other PC things that go a long with it. Something that isn't too rough/isn't too hard to make smooth.

I'm going to build a yagi antenna and a mount that would allow me to move it vertically and horizontally in small intervals. I can build the antenna easily, I'm just not sure of the method as well as how it works as a directional antenna. For the mount, could I just buy something build for a telescope? It would be nice for it to be motorized, but not a requirement.
