Im trying to clone one of these 433mhz transmitters. I was able to clone the orginal transmitter back in 2012 to same kind of 433mhz clonable transmitter. Both orginal and 2012years clone work perfectly for our gate. now i bought few new transmitters from few vendors. all should be the same frequency. I am able to clone them but they just dont work. What could i be doing wrong? I have tried; >Making sure the frequencies are right >cloning from orginal transmitter >cloning from 2012 clone transmitter >changing batteries >different buttons >different types of clone transmitters >different cloning angles

Electric motor overheating

17 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
So my table saw motor keeps tripping my fucking breaker then its thermal switch. don't get me wrong I'm trying to run it on a 15 amp outlet when the motor itself eats up 14.8 amp. but that's max load?? I can turn the damn thing on for 30 seconds, it clicks off -breaker trips. then head over the to breaker, off - on. walk back over to the motor and flip the switch again, it will go for another 30-50 seconds before it shuts off again, but its not shutting off at the breaker the thermal switch built into the motor shuts it off... I just replaced the bearings in the damn thing and cleaned off as much saw dust as I could get at. it does this all by itself, no load either just the motor running. its an induction motor too, no bushings. My question is not so much about the breaker as why the damn thing is getting hot, well over 120 degrees F on the ouside shell! It is hooked up to a 12 gauge extension cord. but that's most likely whats causing the breaker to trip. I know I should have a good 10 gauge, but them shits are expensive!

I need to fab stainless steel channels

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hey /diy/ I need to fab a channel similar to the one in picrelated out of stainless. I'm guessing this is usually done by getting a sheet of stainless steel and using some kinda bending machine on it. The thickness of the channel cross section isn't really important; what matters is precise 90 degree bends (and that one final 45 degree lip at the end) and the spacing inside the channel should be fairly close. Where could I get something like this done? I need some keywords to search for shops that would do this. Anyone know what kind of cost / foot length I might be looking at (ballpark) in USD?

Ive tried looking around but the only thing Ive found is woodcraft trying to sell crap.

Very old iPod, trying to retrieve data

14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Just so you know this iPod is old, and I mean fucking old... Like old... It's all raggedy shit. I am trying to see the data I have on there, I use to have all my certificates from my trade school, pictures, very very old conversations, and music that Id like to listen to again. My main question is... Can I actually retrieve all this data or is it way too late to think about that and I should just probably destroy it and throw it away? This iPod stopped working one day after work, I disconnected my headphones and it froze, I let it sit until it drained out but it never turned back on... Wired it to the computer, tried charging it, wouldn't charge. Wouldn't let me do a thing with it. Tried for weeks, months, and nothing. I also tried the little thing connected to it, maybe I did it wrong, not sure. Well one day I got tired of trying, got lazy to take it somewhere and forgot about it. Now it's been almost 7 years I think, and I really would like to get back in this. Does anyone know what I could do about this? Is it long lost? Should I take it to an expert? TLTR; My iPod fucked up 7 years ago, cant turn it on, cant connect it to the computer to see the data, how can I retrieve it again? All I have is the shown picture. I tried using the thing connected to it but it didn't work, or maybe I used it wrong.

>mfw just finished after drilling four holes in an outer wall Oh my god. That was hell. My ears are still ringing. My hand aches. Please give me some pointers for masonry drilling, /diy/. How was I supposed to do it? It was really really fucking hard, literally, and I ruined my first drill bit, the second became entirely smooth and only when going at it extremely slowly did I finally manage to get all four holes drilled. Even then the drill bit ended up being semi-smooth. So let's see here. I used the drill bit for masonry (it had a bit of a hammer head, hard to describe, but unlike the pointy one for wood, the black one for general-usage and the bronze-colored one for metal). The drill, heavy and corded, was set to the setting with the hammer next to it. I stopped every once in a while to let the drill (bit) cool off, sometimes I pressed hard, sometimes softly but mostly with a normal amount of pressure. In the end, every mm gained ended up being a victory on its own. Surely, I must have inadequate tools or I'm a complete idiot. How do you drill in ...concrete, I guess?

Corporatisation of the "Maker Movement"

59 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I feel like making profit and advertising have subverted the front of the maker movement, and I find it rather sad. Does anyone else agree? Has anyone else noticed this? I remember the old Make magazine. It was cool because most of the things in there could be made with common household stuff, or some generic things. And the old magazine felt like it was less geared to profit. The early issues (I am talking before the switched over to the thin version) weren't as flashy or using a ton of buzzwords like Arduino and OPEN SOURCE and RASPBERRY FUCKIN PI. In the current issues it seems like it shills Adafruit out of the ass. All the projects must use some name brand shit like Arduino or a Pi. Just buy this shield and ur a maker :DDDD! You're being creative I swear it! Its just one easy purchase. :) Its the same with the other companies that have sprung up to shove this shit. Adafruit and Sparkfun are pretty bad about overpricing things and maintaing this facade that because everything is OPEN SOURCE that they aren't out to rip off people who don't know better. I think the term open source has been relagated to nothing more than an advertising buzzword, like the term "artisan" or "natural." Do you agree? Here's an old issue of Make:. I will post a recent one for comparison.

It seems like each board has their own autistic (in the loving sense) mascot youtuber, like Reviewbro, or Ulillillia. Can /diy/ adopt this guy? He seems genuinely nice and has some pretty legit projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAfvOjdZpkg

Hi /diy/, I've loved contributing to the woodworking threads here, but now I need your help on something I'm not familiar with. I bought a lawn mower at a garage sale last year, and it seemed to run great. It worked all last spring and summer, and it worked a few times this spring, but now it won't start. Well, I guess I should have done some basic maintenance on a used mower before now, but I didn't. I open the thing up and find that it doesn't have an air filter installed for the last year of use. How fucked is it /diy/? Will the airborne crap have gotten past the carburetor? I can take that off and clean it based off of what I've seen online, but I've never worked on small engines before. Will the lack of air filter have destroyed anything permanently? Thanks for your help.

dumb ass bath tap

So this waterfall tap I have broke. Im in a rented place but my agents are fucking idiots. Best way for me to get this sorted it to explain what needs done to them or they'll panic and take a three months and a team of contractors to fix it. The glass bit screws of but does anyone know how to get the silver cap off. I dont want to force it and end up doing more damage. Thanks

DIY Wood Stove

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I would like to have to have a wood stove for my 24x28 garage for next winter. I can't find many here for less than about 350, anything less than that are usually pretty warn out. Does anyone have any suggestions for a DIY type I could make, that would be safe enough to use inside? I have saw a few made from compressed gas tanks online, but it looks like people only use them outside. Suggestions anyone?

Looking to build my first set of cabinets and im interested what /diy/ thinks of decent starter router/router table/bits.

Any recommendations considering I'd rather not go too overkill.

First quadcopter build

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I am planning on building my first quadcopter. I have no experience with them whatsoever. The idea was to keep it lower in price. I am willing to spend money on it but I don't wan to go high end. So here are some things I already had in mind: Motors: $7 A2212 1000KV brushless motors ESC: 30A burshless T-rex 450 V2 ESC's Frame: Self made or is that way to complicated to do? Controller: OpenPilot CC3D. I have quite some experience with microcontrollers so I want an STM32 ARM so I can progrem the controller myself. Battery: Turnigy 5000mAh 4S 14,8V 20C - 30C Lipo Propellers: clockwise and counter-clockwise but I have no idea wich to choose. Remote: No idea yet For the rest a bunch of connectors and wires. Btw: The picture represents pretty good what I have in mind.
