Hardware Store Know-It-Alls. 43 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Anyone else deal with this horseshit? Everytime I go into a hardware store there is always some faggot who has to push into the conversation how I am wrong about something or they know how X is better etc. >Pop into Ace needing a 240 50amp plug since Home Depot doesn't have it. >Guy bout gives a nigga heart attack by jumping out and asking what I need. >Tell him I just need a 3 prong 240v plug. Don't know NEMA code since I am not someone who works with it all day err day. >He shows me to the place. Asks me what I am trying to do with it. >Yeah I got a very old Air Compressor I need to run at a guys house while I do some work and it uses an older 3 prong plug with no neutral. I just got this one to plug into the modern outlets since he has a Dryer plug I can use. I need a cord to run the extra distance I need and also to make it so that this old three prong can get the juice from the 4 prong receptacle since the 3 prongs don't work on 4 prongs. >Uhhh.... Yeah we got what you need but uh, running no neutral can cause problems and burn the house down! 240v extension cords are against code too. >Strange room initiate. Just tell him to give me the plug. Be on my merry ass way. >Be in Loewe's. >Got a frame that needs enclosing for a tumbler and motor I need to make. Time is essential, can't order it and steel yard is 2 hours away. >Ask the dude if he has any sheet metal or expanded metal in the place. >He shows me to it. Says he has 16 gauge 20 and 24 or 26 or something. >Grab a few sheets of this expensive ass 20 gauge cold rolled. >He asks what I am trying to do with it. >Tell him I just got to weld it to a metal box style frame. >He jumps out with his words and says you can't weld no 20gauge sonny. >isthisniggaserious.png >Tell him I could probably do it with 1/16 7018 but the Tig set up would easily knock out all the welding. >He gets all flustered and says there ain't no way anybody of your age (20) can have bought a tig welder. >Leave and weld it out.
I have an arduino project I... 25 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I have an arduino project I would now like to move to a circuit board and to make permanent. It's a box with a keypad that upon entering the correct code, moves the position of the motor inside the box and allows the person to open it. A security box, I guess. I was just wondering, do I need the 16Mhz crystal on the circuit board as well/any other components from the arduino itself apart from the ATMega328 or can the project be moved to the circuit board with the ATMega alone along with my components used in correspondence to the project?

>Hello DIYers, first time on this board, thought you guys might have the right expertise. Basically, I left a lamp on too close to the wall and it burned a hole (pic related). It's a rental property I'm vacating in about 2 months. How do I go about patching this? >my current plan 1. Look for some sort of filler type product (not sure the name right now but I've used it before to patch uneven spots/joints etc on plasterboard) to smooth out the burned patch. 2. Take a paint chip to the hardware store and get them to mix me 2 paints, on slightly yellower and one slightly whiter than my shade and I'll experiment to get the proper dry colour. Sound ok?

Hello /diy/, time to make some microphones. I would like to record my band using some kind of ambient microphones. I have read about boundary or PZM. I have already built some good omnidirectionals using Panasonic capsules. What's your advice to diy a mic appropiate to capture ambient sound in the place where we practice?

sup /diy/, I have a project I need to do before the weather starts to warm up...already getting in the 80s so not much time left Last summer we got a new AC unit that is loud as a motherfucker...and is right next to my bedroom wall. It keeps me up at night. I need to figure out a way to soundproof the wall on the outside between the AC unit and the wall or on the inside in my bedroom. Huge problem is the amount of space between the wall and AC unit as well as my bedroom window right there...I assume I will have to block the window in the summer as well which is fine. Any help on solutions / materials would be greatly appreciated!

Hi guys, I am currently... 9 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi guys, I am currently assembling a guitar tube amp as a uni project. The thing is, I want to keep the amp afterwards, but don't have a speaker for it. What I do have are two amp combos (one is a Line6 Spider III-75W, the other a VOX hybrid... don't remember the exact name), so what I was thinking about doing was to disconnect one combo's speaker from the amp and adding some jacks so I could use the speaker built into the combo for either the combo amp or the amp I am building. In itself that is not a big deal. I've got two questions though: 1) How do I find out the speaker's impedance so I know which amp output to connect it to? (it's got 2, 4 and 8 ohms outputs) 2) Is there any way to mod a solid state amp with just one output so that I can connect speakers with different impedances to it? That way I could connect one of the built-in amps to bigger speakers if I ever get my hands on them. Pic related is the one I am building.

Physics simulation thingie

Physics simulation thingie 12 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I love Illustrator. It gives me power to model stuff up to sub-millimeter accuracy and after years of using it on my free time and work, I consider myself a professional and feel confident using it in almost any project I start. But I want to create a bit more complex machine this time. Sure, I can model two gears next to each other and understand that if one spins clockwise, the other spins counter-clockwise. I can also calculate the speeds and distances of moving parts and whatnot, but I actually can't "see" the changes. What would be the best tool for a vector graphics engineer for this kind of.. physics simulation? I don't know if that's the word for it. tl;dr are there programs in which you can design and test your mechanical machines? I'm a macfag, by the way

I have a bunch of neodymium magnets from hard disks. I want to make them power my bicycle lights. I know that I need to attach the magnets to the spokes of the wheels, and that they need to pass over *something* as the wheel goes around to generate the power. What, exactly, do they need to pass over?

So I just moved into a new house and I want to decorate my room a bit different than it usually is. My basic goal is to have a very minimalist design. I also have a couple interesting ideas for lighting.(there is currently no permanent lighting in the room) I want to create a feel similar to that of a James Turrell exibit.>pic related I'm planning on using some sort of fabric as a back drop along the extents of a single wall in my bedroom, then I will construct a frame around the border of the wall that will house led lights (rope lights?). the lights will shine on the fabric and reflect into the rest of the room. It would be cool if I could get a multi color system going that slowly changes as time passes. I'm also planning on making another light feature that consist of framing along the ceiling (much like crown molding) that will house similar lights. the frame will have a translucent material stretched around it in order to diffuse the light, again, probably using led rope lights or christmas lights. If anyone has done anything like this I would appreciate any advice. I'm shooting for the end product of my room to be my mattress on the floor, a small table next to it and the lighting system.
