yo /diy/, I'm looking to get into carpentry. Problem is I'm pretty fucking poor. What are the minimum tools required for this sort of thing? I've seen conflicting answers on what's really necessary on various websites. To give you an idea of some of the stuff I want to be able to build with these tools >a basic storage chest >a small bookshelf >a simple desk thanks in advance friends

I have two headsets with mics, if I plug one in the back of the pc and on in the front ports I can hear sound out of both perfectly. However I can only get one mic to work. I have heard USB may be better but both headsets have the pink and green plugs. My question is, is there a way to get this to work without using an external mixer? Ive looked all over and cant find a simple solution.

Fixin' Headphones Gen.

So, my cats go to my phones when I was away and chewed the bit of cord that wraps around the base of the phone. The cord 'pops' out now and it's disconnecting one of the speakers (the left one). I've tried ducktaping it in place, but it doesn't really help. Is there anyway to diy fix this or am I fucked? http://www.amazon.com/Technica-ATH-AD700-Open-air-Audiophile-Headphones/dp/B000CMS0XU/ref=sr_1_2?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=undefined&sr=1-2&keywords=audio+technica+ad700

Cold water isn't cold enough. Is there anything I can do down there to fix it?
Hey diyI have a hairspring... 8 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey diy I have a hairspring timepiece that oscillates too fast, even with it adjusted to the slowest speed. I'm not gonna try bending the spring - that's fraught with peril. What's the best way to add mass to the freewheel? I'm thinking tape. What type of tape will be most stable when stuck to metal? It has to stick forever and not melt when exposed to 60C temps. Maybe I should just use drops of voluminous glue instead? which types of glue would work? The extra mass will be less than 0.1grams.

Pretty soon I'm about to call in about job as a "Test Technician" and I have no real experience in the field, but I would really love the job. Is there anything I should start learning right now or prepare to be asked? Or anything else you could advise me on knowing? Thanks.

Anyone on here done some custom rigging to a jukebox? Want to put in external hard drives, with different music on each with some kind of switch because i doubt it has the capability for playlists. https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-buys/saturday-23-august-2014/saturday-detail-wk34/ps/p/cd-jukebox-with-bluetooth/ Any help appreciated!

I just moved Into the apartment I signed a lease for, and they did a fucking joke of a job cleaning this place up. Obviously they painted over the walls, and they didn't give a fuck about not painting over the appliances. What can I do about this shit? Really pissed of right now.

Rubber stopper replacement

Just got this damned water bottle for free, then went to clean it. I dropped the top rubber stopper somewhere and cannot find it, but I was hoping to get some ideas as to what I could put there. The left hand small pin and ring are what held the old stopper in place.

Rotary Phones

4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /diy/ I looked all over Google and Youtube but I can't find a good video for rewiring an old rotary phone (pic related, it's the phone I'm taking apart). Lots of places say to cut the wires and connect green and yellow to green and red to red, but lots of other places say this doesn't always work. Does anyone know a good way to 'update' this rotary so I can use it in my room? I'm kinda new at diy stuff, so only have basic tools, wire cutter, screwdriver, glue gun, heat gun.
