terrible with wiring diagrams

terrible with wiring diagrams 10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So recently I've started to get into electrical wiring and the like. I'm taking a couple of classes at a local college, but I'm really struggling with converting line diagrams to wiring diagrams. I'm just really having trouble grasping the concept. So having said that, what are some good online resource where I could practice this a little more outside of class and the little bit of homework I get?

Considering buying a handheld blowtorch for small welds and other uses. Can any of you skilled metal workers advise? I like the look of the depicted butane pen torch because it's easy to maneuver and cheap, but considering you get what you pay for, is it worth spending like 50$ on those larger canister-style ones instead? And I'm curious about the running cost- INB4 "IT DEPENDS". For example, how many minutes of continuous blue flame would 10$ worth of butane or propane typically get me on these handheld torches?

Cheapest ways to test, clean, and prevent mold in and under carpet? I have a feeling there is mold and my landlord won't give a fuck until I get more concrete proof than $10 mold testers. I wish I could save the hassle and clear out the mold for less than 100 bucks, but simple carpet cleaning with a steamer doesn't do the trick. I feel like replacing with laminate is my best bet. Californian BTW so no floods. Pic related is a mold sample, granted it isn't much.

Was quoted an extra 100+ dollars extra for 8mm glass compared to 6mm, for an aquarium. The overall dimensions of it are 1200x500x450 which will hold about 270 liters (71 gallons) of water. This site: http://www.theaquatools.com/building-your-aquarium says it'll be ok but i want to check with other people.

>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?

Hey /diy/, We cleaned out some old stock at work, and since I hate throwing away perfectly fine garbage that looks like it has some diy potential, I brought some stuff home with me. Amongst it was this thingy with a vacuum tube, and I was wondering if any of you might know of something I could do with it? I know my way around basic tools, and love sciency stuff, if that helps. Something else I salvaged and that seems interesting is the polarizing layers from a laptop screen, so if you know something I can do with that, please share! On a sidenote, is there an easy way to make a spark, besides a bbq lighter? Thanks in advance!

New garden, Stumps, Glyphosate

New garden, Stumps, Glyphosate 5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi /diy/, appreciate your advice as I'm working on a a new vegetable garden (my first serious garden). I'm clearing ground now. This is seaside, with just a little root-filled soil before sand. I'm going to get a couple cubic yards of topsoil to put on top once it's all clear, and am beginning compost. So, I cut/ dug out 3 big-ass persimmon tree stumps (Btw I know they are yummy- cut before I got here). Finally, all the stumps are out! Then I was researching, and persimmons self propogate through roots.. I guess that's why there was so many. Now i fear each tiny piece of cut up root, and each remaining root, is gonna turn to infinite new trees like vipers from drops of medusa's blood :( or, at least stay alive and steal nutrients/space from my veggies. Other than stumps, a lot of presumably perrenial weeds are in the spot. Will post pic of uncleared spot below. Lots of rhizome roots etc. My neighbor gardener told me to treat the whole spot with weed killer-- I really don't like the sound of that! I want wholesome food, that's part of why I embark on this (also exercise and pleasure in growing). But I don't want to shoot myself in the foot with a garden built atop pervasive weeds. Don't get me wrong, I intend to remove as much as possible! Anyway, it's time to refill the stump holes but I wonder if I best treat the remaining roots with herbicide before I do?? There is some glyphosate based stuff already around. It says I can plant veggies after- but I'm skeptical! (Will post below)I would really appreciate advice from more experienced gardeners. Thank you!

Also looked into purchasing from USA which looked looked good till i was given a $90 postage quote.. I found these on Aliexpress: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-shipping-lot-30pcs-MIC5255-3-3BM5-SOT23-5-new-original-screen-KW33-111/1663348163.html What are the chances these aren't fake, i'm going to buy them anyway as they are cheap but how would i tell if they are fake?

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.

I am looking for a new wallet. After some extensive searching I decided that I would be much happier if I were to have one custom made. Problem is I have never done anything handy-like or creative. I have about $50 and a Hobby Lobby to get supplies from. Please advise me /diy/. I need something that is going to last my life and not warp. I have no idea how I would do it, but I want it to hold my keys as well without being uncomfortable.
