I have a bunch of holes to drill and I'm curios for anon's opinion on the best type of drill bit and why. I want to avoid a hole saw but the other three all seem appropriate.

I want a lamp in my room

1 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I got a bigger room in the apartment I live in, and I would like to be able to see things after the sun goes down. For this purpose, I have invested in a lamp. I need help hooking it up to the power. I tried, but I didn't do it right, so I took a picture of it, hoping you can help. The white wire from my lamp splits into a blue and a brown one, which I've marked with red colour in Paint. Where do I connect these two wires for my lamp to glow? In from Denmark if it helps, i'm guessing these things look differently in different places.

Solar Panels

How to make GOOD solar panels, and how to store this energy?

I have no tools but a bunch of crap laying around, I want to sell 3d printed hydroponic underground bunker home kit plans, this is super secret so please don't steal the idea I have a free way to generate limitless light in the bunker by converting radiation from americium into light but I cant tell you about it here because the nsa will kill me for it because they don't want the world to know how easy it is. Also you can use solar panels from the light to power the home but 220 v should be wired instead of 110 because it can send more energy over smaller wires. The hydroponics system will be mostly automated by arduous but right now I need to use my parallel port to control the gpio's because I don't have an arduou yet or money to buy one because employment rates in america suck. I don't really have any skills at this yet but I know it will be an awesome business, if you want to do some of the work for me I can offer you some stocks in it.

Leatherworking - Pyrography

Leatherworking - Pyrography 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey Folks, i made myself a bracer for archery out of leather and now I want to improve it by adding celtic ornaments. I wanted to use what I think is called Pyrography. It's basically writing through heat. I only got a normal soldering iron for electrics to use, will that do? Also my leather seems to be processed already, it takes no moisture. I would be grateful for any hints or tips. Thank you

I want an arcade for my mancave. Thinking about building one. The Cab costs $500 shipped from http://www.recroommasters.com/x_arcade_p/rm-xt-arc-t.htm The Tankstick is $190 shipped from http://www.xgaming.com/store/category/arcade-joysticks-and-game-controllers/ which includes for free Maximus Pc Software. Thinking I can find a tower and 22 inch screen for around $400. Am I missing something? Good build? If soo for around $1100 I think its not a bad deal.

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

I'm trying to fix my bike's flat tyre but I ended up having to put on the patch the wrong way up. Does it matter or can I leave it like this?

Hey guys, need some help installing this switch for two different lights. There are a total of three wires, but I'm not sure how to connect it properly. So far I've only gotten one lamp to turn on/off.

Insulations

0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Living in Fargo, building out onto my porch, to make a tiny little bedroom, into a master bedroom. I don't know what kind of insulation is in the porch roof, probably none. It's heavily sloped, a lot could fit in, but the way shit was done, I'm going to drop a false ceiling to get insulation in there. As it stands, ceiling is like 8'7. How far should I drop down for how much insulation? I mean, I'm in Fargo, ND for christ's sake, but if I go down far enough to get R60, my ceiling would only be like 7'6"! opinions welcome

Espresso Creation

So I'm creating an espresso machine. Before I hit the shop, however, I want to be able to source all my materials but the biggest problem I'm having is finding a heat element small enough. Google is only giving me large applications to orders of several hundreds or more. Anywhere anyone knows to go?
