So, I need to drop 12v from my moped to 8v to power this LED light. I was thinking diodes in series but that would take a lot of diodes and they would get really hot. Then I thought of an LM7808, but that can only handle 1A, the light will take 10-12 watts at 8v which is 1.25 to 1.5A, so that wont work unless I run 2 in parallel, but I don't know if you can do that. Somebody said I could use a 7808 with a 2n3055 transistor, but I have no clue how to design a circuit to utilize this. Here is a link to the light: http://dx.com/p/t6-waterproof-xml-t6-3-mode-1200-lumen-white-led-bike-light-with-battery-pack-set-82 510 Halp please.

Good day, fellows. I am a 30 yr old "construction" worker. I've recently hurt my back, I have no formal education, and live in Canada. I've had a minor back problem for awhile (since I was 18) and I can only see my back problems getting worse. Ive got a wealth of knowledge in doing many trades, I'm basically a "master-of-none". I'm currently working in a warehouse cleaning toxic chemicals out of oil barrels and am off for the day till the doctor gives me the OK. My question is this, I need help on what my options are. I feel really helpless. I know I'm looking for pity, but I really just want ideas. Recently I've lost my independence (living with friends...) and was planning on moving in Q1 of the new year. I believe I can keep working but I'm sick of the heavy manual labor. Is it really hard to get into schooling? I've recently tried and failed at completing my gr 12 ( for a paramedic course) due to the travel and a few other factors. I'm curious if you can help me or suggest ways that I can take a quick course or maybe a less back intensive trade that would help me become more independent. >pic related; my reason for trying. also I really enjoy fixing things. like soldering, electronics, computers, building things. I've always be a tactile person. I just want to get a direction on how to gain a better future for these things.

Anyone here own cattle? How did you get into the business? Is it lucrative or maybe just a hobby? I recently inherited 40 acres of land (a godsend) and am looking to start my own ranch. Even if I can't make a profit, it's cheaper then buying from the grocery store, right?

Hey, /diy/. I need to build an integrated system and document its construction. I need ideas for the integrated system to build. Tools are already supplied, but I need to supply my own materials. I would like to keep the budget under 50 dollars. Does anyone have any ideas? Pic probably unrelated.

I will be spending a couple weeks out of town visiting my mother. I have some basil, thyme and parsley growing in a window in my house. I fear my plants will dry out and die while I am gone. What can I do?

Fixing broken plastic screw hole?

I somehow managed to break a screw whole of my PC fan and now it won't install 100% right (noise). Since a new one costs like $80 I was wondering if there might be a way to somehow fix it? Maybe with something like epoxy putty? (I've never used it)

I do not know where else to post this question, but I thought /diy/ would be most suitable, seeing as you all know building materials. I am translating a book from Faroese (the language of the Faroe Islands) to English, that my great-grandfather wrote in the 1930's. It is about traditional Faroese architecture and building styles. Practically a (then) modern take on old viking and settler buildings. Okay, so my question is this. What do you call the metallic crumpled roofing, that many modern houses have? I am currently translating a pretty funny statement on ergonomics, beauty in buildings, and the influx of "modern grey blocks, in which people live in". In a joking manner, my great-grandfather called it "rukkujarn", which literally translates to "crumple-tin". I will definitely leave the literal translation in, but I feel like I should put in a footnote, clarifying what he meant. I do realize that cumple-tin is also used as insulation of sorts, but in this book, crumple-tin mainly refers to the butt-ugly roofs of various modern buildings. Also, seeing as this would probably be the only board (other than /tg/) interested in traditional, ergonomic and economically sound architecture, would you like me to post the book, whenever I have finished translating it? I think it is pretty funny, and it gives a lot of insight. The book mainly focuses on how "quantity instead of quality" is bullshit when it comes to houses, that grey blocks (that can barely be called houses) are ruining the "look" of towns and cities, and how people should pull themselves together, and build visually appealing houses that are also ergonomically and economically sound. TL;DR I would like to get an English word for crumpled metal roofing. Also, would you guys be interested in reading a book about a modern take on Nordic architecture?

I finally got plates for my moped, but I don't have a mounting bracket. I don't really want to spend 10 bucks for a shitty piece of plastic with 3 holes in it. Anyone have any ideas for what I could use as the basis for this quick DIY? I don't have any sheet metal...

Hey /diy/ I was wondering if you guys could help me learn BASH, I tried finding an ebook on it but all I found was sites that linked to more sites. I'm on an android tablet so I'm unsure if I can use pdf files. I also need to know how to root this thing, can you guys help me? I know this is probably more fit for /g/ but the last time I asked them for help they were kinda dicks about it. Anyways if you do decide to help me I woild be very grateful, thanks!

Anyone got a one-hole punch laying around? I accidentally disassembled one and can't quite work out how the spring for the handles is held in place. I get that the two arms sit inside the handles but can't work out how where the loop goes. A slightly oblique rear-angle pic of a working punch would be awesome, though written descriptions work too. Thanks

Hey /diy/, I'm planning on making an underwater ROV on a moderate budget. To start off, how well would a fan such as this run underwater? If it won't work (fans are brushless, right?) could I use this on a hobby brushless motor or is it just too big?

I'm going to buy an airshit CNC aluminium frame and I need to modify it to accept CO2 magazines. The new frame will not have those curves as the original frame as seen in the picture and I need to carve off enough to make CO2s to fit. What tools and methods would be best for this?

hey /diy/ I was wondering does anyone know how to fix the tilt adjuster for an office/swivel chair? Im pretty confidant that I can do it, the cylinder is fine. The problem with the tilt adjuster happened just the other day and now I have no back support I can only lean all the way back. I have already search around for about 20mins and all of the fixes are for height none are for the tilt adjuster, all help is appreciated.

So here's a story; I have a broken samsung galaxy SI. However, when I say broken, I mean to say that the only thing not working is the functional buttons (the home/back/etc. tabs at the bottom). So, it still turns on, and works, however, you can never back space. Apparently there is a tiny filament that connects them to the rest of the device, and it was damaged and would be needlessly expensive to fix. So, I thought to myself... I have a phone, with 512mb of ram, and a 1 GHz Cortex-A8. Why, I have a raspberry pi! So, here's what I wonder; Is there anyway I can completely get rid of the mobile operating system, and insert my own? Maybe hook it up to a screen via micro-hdmi to hdmi. What technical challenges are in my way?
