/diy/, I've never had a black eye. I've had many different bruises in my life, but never in or around the eye area. I want a black eye, /diy/. How can I give myself one without damaging my eyes? I like my eyes and seeing stuff with them, but I guess I also have a thing for self-harming to an extent, and I think bruises look nice. How can I damage the tissue around my eye without harming the eye itself?

Damn it, h. I went to the trouble of typing all this out: http://www.jbweld.com/faqs/ >Is J-B Weld toxic? >No. When fully cured, J-B Weld is non-toxic. However, we do not recommend consuming the product. I can't find anything similar for the E6000 stuff. I think both products are toxic until cured, but as I said I can only find that JBWeld is non-toxic when cured. I suspect you are referring to the curing fumes as to their toxicity? I'm not sure there's a good substitute that will be non-toxic during the curing phase. HOWEVER, I do have a recommendation. Build yourself a box with a glass/plexiglass/plastic wrap front that has a place at the bottom to comfortably get your hands into it. On the top or back-top section of the box make a hole and attach one of those silver dry vent hoses to it. On the other end of the dryer vent attach a vent fan (bathroom vent fan, salvaged microwave vent fan, etc). Build a thing there to hold the vent hose and the vent fan so that you can open a window and set the vent fan unit in the window so it blocks all outside air and keeps your fan in place. Then when you need to do cementing you can do it inside this vent box. Turn on the fan and all the fumes go outside. Since the fan is at the window and not in the box there's no fumes at all being pushed out of the box. Even if there was a leak in the vent hose the hole will suck air in and keep the fumes in it until they get sucked out the window. Install a light in the box if you need to. Let your items cure fully in there. I use a similar box for all my toxic fume-producing DIY projects; from spot welding, soldering, to painting. I can light a match in it and not once smell sulfur fumes. I use a microwave vent fan in mine.

Anyone ever heard of Craftmaster drill presses? They any good? Someone in my area is selling a working benchtop model for $35 and I'm wondering if its worth that or if I should waste my time with it. Made in America but I don't think its an old WWII era one from what little I could find on google. From what I can tell the Craftmaster name got bought and sold a few times and I'm weary that some crap company picked it up and churned out a few turds with it before going under. Pic related, its the drill in question.

I just posted this on /b/, but i think the technical minds of /diy/ will be much more informative. /b/ had no information. Anyways; My life is about to start (i graduate highschool in a few months) and i have no clue what i want to do. I kind of want to go on a self-finding trip, but i don't know where to go, or where to begin, or how to even go upon everything. Can anyone chime in? Oh, and when i graduate, i should have right around 40,000$ to work with.

Hi, I'm trying to clean my monitor and followed this http://pcsupport.about.com/od/maintenance/ht/cleanflatscreen.htm tutorial, but I'm not sure whether the vinegar I have is right. I have 'Tafelessig' (table vinegar) made of 5% brandy, pic is not the exact one I have but very similar; the tutorial says to use white vinegar though Is that the same thing or is this stuff for food only? Or can I also use this?

Hey /diy/ quick question. My car has an exhaust leak and I want to fix it myself. I was thinking of cutting a piece of curved aluminum and then using JB weld to fix it over the leak. Is this a decent fix? I really don't want to pay a mechanic to fix it.

I'm working on a viking age costume, and after some googling I came across sources for hand-woven embroideries made out of metal threads, called "posaments". The problem is that I can't find a single guide on how to make this myself. Can you guys help me? Pic related.

Stepper motors

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ST4118.jpg]
I'm currently working on an early project and I wonder about feasibility. Setup: Stepper motor (type not sure about), one gear attached (weight 10g), turning another gear (10g), ratio 1:1, turning a sleeve bearing with minimal friction. I want that stepper motor to turn something mounted on an axis from 0° to 63° within 0.03s (+/- 0.015s) via gears (1:1..2:1 max gear ratio, that means either direct or slower). Within this angle I want to have at least (can always be more) a dozen steps so I can adjust the specific angle. Many stepper motors have steps of 1.8° --> 63°/1.8°=35, so at least this will work out. The friction of my simple gear will likely be higher than the friction of what I am moving. Both are rather negligible I'd say. Something similar to a proper sleeve bearing, maybe. So what I worry about is inertia, unfortunately I suck at this part of physics and stepper motor electronics. The gears have a weight of ~20g and are attached with proper ball bearings. The application needs to be mobile and compact. That means powered from a couple of eneloops and of 40mm width or lowered. I can provide up to 35V@4A via a switching amp if needed (although don't expect it to be ripple free at this much current). Question: Will a stepper motor be able to accelerate two 10g gears (one attached to the motor, one to my axis mounted piece) to 35(?) 1.8° steps (or 63° with at least 12 steps) within 0.03..0.045s? What kind of stepper motor should I be looking for? From what I understand about steppers so far is that they need a ramp to accelerate, but I'm not sure if I'm already within the need for such a thing, or if it's even doable. Anyone can help me out?

Medieval armours

Hey /diy/ , newb here. So i've been inspired by medieval Assassins and Assassins creed. I want to make leather armour, that's unique. But i have no idea how to deal with leather, nor metal. I don't want to buy already made armour, because i wont be able to fix it later if i ruin it somehow. Please /diy/, give me a start. ( Not full leather, since i am acrobatic and "sneaky" type. I could also put in a design )

How do I move Forward? (Any Science ppl)

I have an innovative idea for a treatment of a viral infection (not HIV, I wish) that I want to pursue but I have no idea how to move forward as I'm just a middle class college student. I don't want to tell a random professor so he just steals the idea, but I don't have my own lab either. Any ideas/ways to get started on mobilizing my idea/moving to the testing phase? Anything I'm missing? (I've finished all lab procedures/tests I'd want to do as well as theory and research into prior methods etc.)

Hello my /diy/ lovers i come to you for some help with a project. I need to build a robotic mic stand - so I can have a way to adjust a mic stand in recording sessions without having to leave the monitoring room everytime. It's part of a school project, and I have the arduino at my disposal. Is it possible to be done? do i have motors with arduino powerful enough to rotate, move and stretch parts of the microphone tripod? Pic related is the stand, thanks guys

Have no clue where to ask this but here seems fine. So I am trying to record audio out in public but I have no clue how to do it. I'm talkin in a style like many pranksters on YouTube where someone video records me out in the distance but I capture the audio without people knowing. How is this done in a clean and secret way? Pic unrelated

Hello /diy/s, I have a project which requires an object of similar complexity as the image done from aluminum. I asked around from around 25 different metal workshops and all were either not willing or gave me a huge price tag(1000eur-1600eur) which absolutely destroys the budget for my project. That amount of money could also get me an off the shelf completed project or get me the machines that would let me build one myself. I don't feel like spending that money on anything related to the project. What would /diy/ do?

Trolling the future

I'm building a very serious, high tech looking time capsule. I have equipment for engraving metal. I'd like advice on what to engrave on the exterior of the capsule to give the impression that it's epic and monumental. The contents will be trivial shit from the 1990s. I have, so far, a copy of Ace Ventura 1, 2 and 3 on DVD. I am open to other suggestions. I want the most asinine anticlimactic stuff possible so that after getting worked up and opening the capsule they will suddenly realize they've been fucked with from beyond the grave. So, what to engrave? And what else to include in the capsule contents?
