Hello /diy/ Recently, my grandmothers lift chair stopped working (well the charger for it) and we need to replace it. Did some googling, and it's a 24v 2 amp charger. >commonly used in; On-board and Off-board applications, specially designed for electric scooter, power wheel-chairs and patient lifts among others. I don't know what happened to the unit, but the "error" light comes on when I hit the power switch. so im sure it's something internal that can be fixed. a new charger (OEM-2402) is $136 shipped. Is there a cheaper, power wheels charger I can get? http://www.batterymart.com/p-oem-2402-24-volt-2-amp-switch-mode-charger.html

Hey /diy/ I'm wanting to paint an aluminium (or aluminum) Hard Drive. This will not be used in a PC or needed to be functioning. I'm just wondering what the best type of paint to use would be and if it is necessary to use an etch primer?

Hey /diy/, I've had a story coming together in my head for a while but I'm not sure what to do with it. I've been thinking about making it into either a comic/graphic novel or animating it; both seem to have their ups and downs. Really though, I'm wondering if it's possible to make money off of either somehow. Distributing it digitally was my goal, although we all know how hard it is to get free things online. Anyway, anyone have any suggestions? Is a comic worth making nowadays (considering you might not get any money)? How 'bout ebooks?

When do I plant these suckers?

When making India Ink at home (for drawing, not for tattoos mind you) do I have to burn charcoal or can I burn wood until it's completely burnt out? If I burn wood until it won't burn anymore, will there still be just carbon left?

This base is called the levitron. ac powered base that makes a magnet float, but not very high. you attach what you want to float to magnet. bugs me that its so low powered tho. how to improve? want about 5 inches float for plastic models. worlds strongest magnet would work better? will make electric bill high?

Hi /diy/. I'm thinking about making a still, but setting aside the building of this still fore some further date, due to the complete lack of money. I have an electric stove, and I was thinking about getting thermometer that can be placed inside the pan to keep the temperature at a steady 80C (or 176F for our SI-challenged friends). My question is that if I have a pan with 23 litres of mash in it, how much will the temperature vary? Does an electronic stove with six different settings keep at a steady temperature or do I have to get an alternative heat source? Also I hope that this doesn't go in the category about discussing drugs or drug paraphernalia, because hey, "its just alcohol."

Hey /diy/ I'm REALLY confused and I need to ask you... WHAT THE HELL do I need to a flash a LiteOn 93450c? I mean, the whole package, not just "the probe and ck3 mini" only to find out later I need some sort of special SATA card. I don't have anything at all. So I need to know what do I need to buy. I've searched everywhere but most guys already have something or the info is simply incomplete. I don't have much money, but I need something to extract the key, I need something to power that key extractor and the drive, I need something to connect the drive to my PC and I need those to be cheap. And that's pretty much everything, I guess. Oh and I can't really buy a USB360PRO since it costs a fucking fortune. It's to play offline and I really need it under 30€. Also, there are only a very few shops that sell that kind of stuff in Europe, so if you have links to those things, that would be GREAT. Please, /diy/ I really need help on this one Pic related, it's equal to my jasper XBOX

Senior project

13 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Lipstick.png]
So /diy/, I'm a senior in a science and math High school, and for the whole year we are working on a project to invent or improve upon an item not previously patented, that we could market or patent ourselves need be. I am wanting to do something with electronics, Mostly hardware if possible but I am aware of how to use C based languages from having been in school robotics. My issue is, after browsing instructables, hackaday and miscellaneous sites in the stickied thread on the front page i have not yet found something inspiring to create. So my question to you all, is what are some items that are relatively exotic, that if a market had been formed for these items you would purchase them, or make them yourself? (It is /diy/ after all). Examples of other peoples projects are an inductive mouse, A table that when the cup is placed on it the table injects a drink into the cup, someone last year made improvements on a cigarette filter, one person made a quadrocopter from scratch, one student created an xbox 360 into a laptop and fashioned a carrying case into a portable power source that still held the xbox with a 4 hour battery life and safely shut down when power began to run low, and another person built an electric guitar with a built in speaker. (My birthday was on the November 17th, so yes I am 18.) >picture not even remotely related

Learning to design

Hey /diy/, i am a woodfag and i can build tons of shit with my tools etc. i am creative and i do tons of other shit (crafting things). I am planing to study product design in 2013 (my interest would be furniture, indoor decor, etc.) but what i need to learn is a proper way of getting my ideas on paper. So far i am doing step 1 (idea) -> step 3 (building it), step 2 is obv. planning/ detailed drawing. I know i can simply google it but i bet some of you know good sites that have proven to be extremely helpful on this topic.

I'VE FINALLY DONE IT! I dusted off my electronics stuff and my microprocessors will be here tomorrow or the next day. Helping people here with basic electronics has made me remember the magic that electronics used to have for me. The arduino threads helped too, though I've decided on a different route. I ordered 2 MSP430G launchpads for $8.60 with free Fed-x shipping. How can they even do that? Anyway, THANK YOU /diy/, I've been waiting for this inspiration for 10 years.

What kind of clock jitter values can I expect from a typical computer RTC?

12 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: DS1307.jpg]
Hi /diy/! I'm making an RTC board for my RTC-less router. Right now, I'm researching the oscillator circuit and I'm hoping you can give me some information here or at least share some experience. What I have right now is a DS1307+ (yeah, I know it's old, but it's the best I can get that works with I^2C) on a breadboard (yes, I know that they are a source of all evil and wrong things, especially when oscillators are concerned, but the layout isn't ready yet) and the frequency counter on my scope tells me (via DS1307's square wave out pin) that the oscillator's frequency is 32768 Hz, as I'd expect. What concerns me is the falling edge of the square wave output. There's some jitter on it and the area covered by the falling edge is around 500 ns wide. I don't need some super precise time keeping, but I'd like to get is as precise as reasonably possible. So should I be concerned by this or is this good enough for a computer RTC?

SIM Card Recycling?

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: simcards1.jpg]
Hi There, /DIY/ Is there any funny or good ($$$) way to recycle SIM Cards and / or credit, debit, gift cards? As far as I know they're made with PVC which is really difficult to recycle. I've found some ideas searching online, but I'd like to have a couple of extra ideas. For the last few years I've been working with SIMS and I can get a lot of them. Thanks a lot!!

/diy/, what do you think is the best way to drive a balanced audio line? I've seen it done with a pair of op-amps, or with a transformer, or with other passive components, but what do you think would be the best way to do it for best sound quality and lowest cost?

So I have this power switch to an old saw and its damaged. One of the contacts inside the switch has had its tip burnt off and it no longer makes contact with its terminal. A replacement switch is $40+, more than the old saw is worth. The contacts in the switch are brass plated steel, I assume to prevent rusting. I soldered on a piece of copper to the burnt contact and it now has connectivity when I test it with a meter. Is that relatively safe, mixing copper and steel like that? I figure another burnt contact is the worst that would happen. The saw uses 110v AC at 10 amps. Should I just wire up a cheaper, standard switch that wont fit in the housing and have it look like shit? Pic related, its a stock image of the outside of the switch.
