Tensile Net/ Shirt

9 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I was wondering if it would be possible to have a tensile net (for suspended sleeping when camping like a spider's web) that doubles as a clothing article? How would I make it? How would I make sure it doesn't look bold, like I didn't just walk out of the 80's (probably wouldn't be that closely knit anyways, at least able to fit arm through holes). Doesn't have to be shirt.

Gather round for a sad story /diy/. I'll need your advice at the end of it.

Anyone have a good recipe for photo emulsion (silk screening)? Preferably with readily available ingredients. I know Speedball sells Diazo, but the stuff expires a month after you mix it. I want something that will either last forever, or that I can mix in small quantities.

Not sure if this board is the right place to post this. But I moved into a new apartment and it has this type of floor which we are trying to clean. I have no idea what it's called, or how to clean some black stains that it has here and there. Thanks.

Looking to mount a speaker bar, which has mount points designed for 16" spaced studs. The walls in question use 24" spaced studs. The speaker weighs about 10lbs (Yamaha YAS-101), and i'm looking into using drywall anchors. Is this advisable? If so, which drywall anchors? Molly Bolt? Toggle? An alternative would be using plywood to mount to the studs, and mounting the speaker bar on that, but that might not be as aesthetically pleasing. Any suggestions?

My car radio has this plug. Is there an audio input wire that can go from a smartphone to this?

First time on /diy/ here. I got this new house that coincidentally belonged to my uncle just before me. He put in all this concrete which I like but left these four giant ass things in the middle of it all. What should I do about these? They are deep in there from what he says so getting em out will be a pain in the ass. Any ideas on what I should do?

So we all agree that strawbale is the best material if your country has code for it, right?

Hello /diy/, craftsmanship newbie here. Ever since virtuix omni came out, I thought to myself, hell, that's a lot of cash for a slippery plastic bowl to stand in. (pic related, if you don't know what is this, its a so called "passive multi-directional treadmill, that records your movement and works as a controller for games) I decided to recreate it with budget as low as possible (and hopefully to release blueprints so no other poor soul will ever overpay again) So, my idea for it (stolen from a homemade "touchscreen" concept) would be to make the bowl out of some more or less opaque material, put LEDs on shoes and some camera (cheap webcam) underneath it all, in such manner that light from LEDs close to the surface would be visible (therefore trackable) but not much other light would be (so actual tracking is not a jittery pain in the ass later). Biggest problem is, I don't know where to get the bowl to start with. It has to be slippery and have slight curvature, but not too steep because who wants to stand in effectively an equivalent of a foot-wide hole in the ground. Does someone here know where to start at? low price is the priority. Come to think of it, the bowl itself could be transparent, given that LEDs are infra-red ones and that we put a piece of photographic film over the webcam so that infra-red is all it sees. Is it completely dumb to not worry about the frame now, and giving yourself an excuse that without the bowl it all won't start anyway? If we get somewhere I'll post progress, either here on on another thread, is this one to die.

Heya, /diy/. I remember reading something about using water as a heat sink. Absorbs hot air during the day, releases it over night. Is it as simple as just filling up all my empty milk gallon jugs with water and piling them under my bed? I'm looking to regulate the temp in my room.

Hello, /diy/. Mead maker here, finished my first batch of desert mead, and would appreciate suggestions for how to flavor my next batch. First batch was simple orange and honey, with allspice, etc. Considering juniper and jasmine for my next batch, but open to suggestions. Currently only have a 5 gallon carboy, so I can only make this shit 5 gallons at a time. Have heard rave reviews from family, friends, and experienced wine tasters alike. Again, open to suggestions, so I'd love to hear them! Thanks! Pic related, though, not mine.

Hey guys, I just got a second hand entertainment center, and I need a bit of advice. It comes with an extra shelf to put more shit on, but there's no pegs or anything to hold the shelf up. I can't get a good measurement on the size of the holes, but is there an easy way to buy or fashion new ones? I'm in a small apartment without easy access to power tools or anything like that, so anything I make will be very low tech. Pic related.

Hey /DIY?, i am purchasing an old busted up camper this saturday. 300 bucks for a title a decent frame, maybe 30-50% of the wood and metal is useable. Lot of new insulation in it. The previous owner wanted to turn it into an office but never did. Any ideas what i could do with it or places to start looking? I want to live in it. A single person. Just needs a place to poop and shower and sleep. Maybe an ultra small kitchen. 12 foot trailer, no idea the make and model, its far beyond mattering. Interior is already stripped. New panels and some old. Exterior is not so good. Will add pictures this saturday. I use mcdonalds internet so it will be slow updates. Camper general?

Hey /diy/nosauers. I'm a noob at electronics, but quick question: I have a small solar panel which says [pic related] on the back. Can I use it for charging a 12V motorcycle battery?
