Does anyone know where I can get extra small or child size welding gloves? My hands are tiny. For some perspective most girls have bigger hands than me

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.

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?

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

Hello /diy/, I don't know shit about creating circuits nor programming but how would I go about making pic related. I don't want the led to fade as the mic is activated, I want the led to have a strong bold light when sound occurs. Thanks in advance.

Speaker restoring

3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I am looking to make a bit of extra money, and I heard that refurbishing speakers can be quite profitable. I feel fairly confident in my wood refinishing skills and my soldering, but I'm not sure how to restore the actual working parts of the speaker. I also wouldn't know how to find a pair of speakers that would be worth some money after fixing them up.

Does any one on /diy/ know about automatic gates? I dunno whether to buy some $500 thing off ebay with solar or what. Needs to open two gates inward and it would be nice if they were somewhat secure so someone couldn't just push there way past and walk in.

Hello /diy/, I need some advice. I started to gain some interest in smelting steel/iron, and I would like to know if there are plans for a bloomery furnace or a tatara, and also a step-by-step instruction for the whole process. I have searched everywhere on the web but I have not found any good information.

Hey there DIY, i have a quick question for you all. I was wondering if any of you had experience with using 3M tape on plastidip? I'm thinking of buying a cover for my car's grill, and it just goes on with 3M tape. I've used 3M for other shit on my car and it works fine and holds up, but because my grill has white strips running across it, it'd show through the cover I'd put on. So I'm thinking of plastidipping the grill black, and then sticking the cover on. But it seems the only way i'd get the cover secure is just using tape, so if the tape wouldn't hold on something like plastidip or itd make the plastidip peel off I wouldn't want to buy the cover obviously. So anyways, any experience with 3M and plastidip together? Do they hold well? Sorry if this isnt a typical DIY question, it seems kind of fit for /o/ but they arent helpful and are more concerned about arguing about which car looks better or if the tundras a truck. >pic somewhat related, only DIY pic I have
