water filter

15 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Dear DIY, I want to build a cheap filter for a solution of magnesium chloride that will filter out organic matter, but keep the magnesium chloride. I'm into nutrition and take a lot of supplements. I've found that the best way for me to supplement magnesium is for me to soak my feet in a solution of magnesium chloride. By rough numbers, I've put eight pounds of magnesium chloride hexahydrate (source: Ancient Minerals brand) into about four gallons of water. Total dissolved magnesium is about 450 grams. Dietary recommendation for magnesium is about 420 milligrams. I guess that I absorb a maximum of one gram of magnesium each time. Because each bag of magnesium costs $40, I reuse the water from the foot bath. Obviously, over time, the water starts to get a little funky from skin flakes coming off my feet. I would like to find a way to filter the water so I can reuse it for longer. I've tried using a towel which helped a little and an air filter which helped a little more. Any suggestions?

So I work with sheet metal. Sometimes I rest sheets on my boots before throwing them on to a surface. Sometimes I sit sheets on one foot to get a better grip before lifting a sheet flat on the ground. Sometimes parts just fall on my boots. I bought a pair of Redwings boots a few months ago. Maybe 6 or 7. They are falling apart really terribly. The leather just slices right off like nothing. I say in a few more months my steel toes will be completely exposed. Now, I know that sheet metal is sharp and will do a lot of damage but none of the other guys' boots in the shop are as bad as mine and they've had theirs much much longer. Why is this happening? Is there some sort of protectant I should have used beforehand? I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I have small feet so I ended up having to buy women's boots (please don't bully). Could this have to do with the poor quality? They weren't much cheaper than the men's version.

ITT: Things you learned this week. Today, I learned that if you put your thumb over the top of a cut while using a ryoba, you will inevitably get a kerf-width cut in your thumb. What did you learn this week?

I believe an important part of doing protects by yourself is doing them safely. After all, don't you want to be able to keep doing projects? I know some of us are just starting out and may not necessarily have an expert guiding us. So, what tips can you give for beginners and even the more advanced of us as we /diy/? All disciplines and tips welcome, even more so if you're an expert or professional in a particular field. Do the safety dance http://youtu.be/AjPau5QYtYs

ideal /diy/ house

45 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
What would your ideal home have? What are some things that piss you off about houses Here's what I would have in my ideal home: multiple huge basins in the kitchen. I hate shallow sinks and those tiny half sinks no exposed grout no exposed metal that corrodes, like iron and copper no carpet, just floorboards or tiles a garbage disposal unit drains inside the shower rooms, bath rooms and toilet rooms hoses all over the house. almost everything should be waterproof or kept in a watertight container. I should be able to hose down my house to clean it no flimsy metal Venetian blinds. How do these even exist? bidets, perhaps attached to the toilet. people who only dry wipe are disgusting all cables and pipes and other various inner workings neatly arranged and exposed if practical. locks for toilet rooms, bath rooms, shower rooms and bed rooms. It is absurd not to have these. They should even have "occupied" and "unoccupied" indicators on them lots of transparent containers, stackable and of the same model for any given size. Having lots of non-matching disorganised containers is awful no knick-knacks, no embellishments simple geometric shapes with non-rounded edges a grey scale colour scheme minimal exposed inner workings a properly arranged house the garage should open into the house. The garage should open right next to the pantry. I hate carrying groceries from the garage to the kitchen. The garage should also open into the main outdoor entertainment area so that it can also be used as an outdoor entertainment area. The kitchen, especially its sink and bin, should be aside. The house I was raised in was poorly planned, it had the geometric and practical centre right next to the kitchen sink. It also had shitty these room-sized cut away outdoor sections, which were isolated from the other outdoor sections so ended up being completely unused. Is this autism? Possibly

Old thread: >>759164 >I'm new to electronics, where do I get started? There are several good books that are commonly recommended for beginners and those wanting to learn more. There are also plenty of good Youtube channels that teach about the basics as well as advanced concepts. The best way to get involved in electronics is just to make stuff. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty. Take something apart or build something you find cool on one of the many electronics websites. >What books are there? Beginner: Getting Started in Electronics by Forrest Mims III Make: Electronics by Charles Platt How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic by Michael Jay Greier Intermediate: All New Electronics Self-Teaching Guide by Harry Kybett, Earl Boysen Practical Electronics for Inventors by Paul Scherz and Simon Monk Advanced: The Art of Electronics by Paul Horowitz >What Youtube channels are there? https://www.youtube.com/user/EEVblog https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChturLXwYxwTOf_5krs0qvA https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCosnWgi3eorc1klEQ8pIgJQ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChtY6O8Ahw2cz05PS2GhUbg https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1rxMIOt82ieNE19w15U5YQ >What websites feature electronics projects?

Sci-Fi Set Building Thread

what is the best way to design a scifi film set on a budget? What sort of building materials should I look into to replicate >pic related? I've seen pictures of set builders making just about everything from 2x4s, but I don't really understand how they make it look like metal and plastic so convincingly. Lastly, what would be the best location to use for a project like this? I have a moderately sized basement, but I think I should look into space in older warehouses and factories that are no longer in operation. Does anybody have experience with building sets like this? Also, general scifi set design thread.

Self sufficient farming

188 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hey /diy/, I have long been enamoured with the idea of self sufficiency, as well as a minimalistic approach to the way we do things. I am currently looking around at property with the intent to buy some time this year, with the further intent of buying once and trying to the best of my ability to get it 'right'. This means allowing for kids down the track, as well as a little room to grow and change things up if need be. My questions today are in relation to self sufficient farming, or as close to as you can get. I am a vegetarian, so I don't need space to grow live stock, just as much fruit, veg and whatever else I can manage. Even if I wasn't, I am looking in suburban areas so the space would just not be there. I would love to go live in a cabin in the woods, or a shack in the country... But that won't be happening just yet. The ideal, I guess, would be able to provide for myself + fiance year round, though I understand this might be far from possibly, especially whilst setting it up and learning. My mum has always had a decent veggie garden, but it's been a long time since I tried to grow anything, and back then it was more for enjoyment than sustainment. I am interested in knowing how much space you would need for a good set up? Are there ways of, for lack of a better term, stacking things up, like adding another story on a house? (Something I am planning on so I can have more yard!) I have been doing a bit of googling as so far I have found a bit of stuff but would love to hear first hand. The other question I have is... best place to start out! As I said, I will be starting from scratch in terms of a set up, and not far from scratch in terms of my knowledge. I love reading and learn best reading and then trying, so any resources you could recommend would be awesome! I am from Melbourne in Australia, which means our climate varies from touching 0 Celsius in winter, to 45 Celsius in summer. Approx. 30-115 Fahrenheit, I think? Cheers
