I'm trying to make a spreader bar. It's fairly easy, but I want to make it adjustable. What is that pipe shit called that is often used to make adjustable canes? The stuff with holes on the outer pipe and the metal bit that sticks through those that you press down to slide the inner pipe? Can you buy that by itself outside of cane form? I wanted to make two of these, one smaller than the other, that can extend from 12 to 18 inches, and a larger one that can extend from 24 to 36 inches. Help?

Xbox 360 DIY steering wheel

Hello DIY, I'm in the middle of a projeft. I have a Logitech Driving Force (the basic one with 2 pedals, paddle shifters, and 180 rotation). I've been trying to mod it to work with Xbox 360. My concept is to hook up all the buttons and potentiometers to the xbox controller. It seems to be working pretty well (buttons especially). The thing is, the potentiometers from the steering wheel don't have too much useable range on the 360. Ex. I turn the wheel around 15-20 degrees and on the controller it registers as the wheel being turned to the max even though there are still around 60 degrees of rotation left. That makes it very jumpy. Same goes for the pedals. I'm guessing I need to put some sort of a resistor between the potentiometer and the controller so that it puts out less 'information' so that it can cover a larger range of its motion, but I don't really know. (I'm sorry, I'm not too good with electrical terminology, I do this by myself without any real previous knowledge) I have some pics to demonstrate my progress (It's crude right now, but I'm just roughing things out) So, do you guys know what I can do to increase the useable range on that potentiometer?

All 4chan creepers, get in here. Situation: Limited budget, and I need a good way to set up a spycam for a shower. >inb4 OP is a loser/creeper/pervert Any suggestions? Budget is around $20. Not much. Let's get creative. I have no webcam, unfortunately.

new mobo not working. all components tested separately (see below). the immediate symptom is that it powers on for 10 seconds, turns off, repeats. no video output/activity, no beeps. if i leave the DIMMs out, i get three beeps indicating "NO MEMORY" so to me, that implies the CPU is working. cpu fan comes on, etc. Setup is an MSI H61M-P31, with an Intel i5, 450W power supply, 2 x 4GB DDR3's, some SATA drives, USB keyboard. Have a 32" Visio TV as VGA monitor on the dsub (known working setup with previous mobo/cpu, which was an old Asus P5B). I have another desktop machine, and i tested each component in it, 100% working: i5, PS, keyboard. What really makes me think i've done something stupid is that i had bought a new Intel mobo from newegg two weeks ago for this upgrade, and it failed in a similar way; powered up, detected memory, but would not boot nor enter BIOS. I tested each component at that time, too, i5 and all, and concluded i got a DOA mobo. any suggestions? i'm fucking stumped. yeah, i checked all the connectors, no shorts under the board, CPU is in right, 4-pin cpu power in place, pulled all drives and connectors not immediately needed to get into BIOS. shorted JBAT jumpers (power off of course), and even pulled the battery for 60 seconds.

Hey guys! I made a thread earlier this week about making a record player myself for a project at school. But i need you guys to help me out again. I am searching for the right 12v dc motor. How can i know how much rpm is lost with every kg rotated? See the pic for a more accurate discription about my problem. I searched on the internet, mdf is about 0.8 grams per cm3, which makes my table about 2.8kgs.

Hello /diy/ I have a problem I need solving. I have to cut out a brand on a CNC mill. I need all the surface to be cut down outside of the letters while leaving the letters in cut. How the heck do I do that in Mastercam X? Thanks in advance, Anon

dear /diy/nosaurs, at the risk of creating a thread which will turn into americlap vs. eurofag, hear me out: i want to frame a picture and keep the original passepartout (or mat) as it is signed. here's the catch: overall it's 18x24 inches and hence incompatible with the metric system where i am living. >cut picture with mat down to standard size for frame? >take next bigger size frame and add a second mat for fit? >? what would you do? I know, do-it-yourself and all I should chisel a custom frame out of ivory, burn and cut the glass myself but let's be pragmatic about that. thank you.

I need to weld washers to my struts (elongated strut mounting holes to change camber, weld washers in place to prevent slippage) I have a hobart handler 120 MIG, and I have messed around with just scrap steel and shit but I dont know much or have much experience My question is all I saw at the hardware store was that goldish color washers, or ones that say they are zinc and shit What kind of washers can I buy that I can actually (and safely) weld?

ok hey /diy/ i need to build a frame for my glasses. since it's winter and im in eastern europe the quick changes from room to outside temperature caused my plastic lenses to expand and shrink, and my frames are fucked(they fucking broke when i walked in from outside today, and before that they were cracking in various places). im thinking of building the new frames out of wood probably, since i would like to keep my old lenses (im fucking low on cash). i'm probably going for a wayfarer style (since i still have the lenses) but for more durability and ease of building i'll try to build them with underwire (pic related (sorry if i'm confusing you with my terms since i english is not my native language)). anyone tried doing something similar? got any tips? what kind of wire should be used, and is it a good idea to try to build frames from wood in the first place. any advice would be apreciated.

hey /diy/ Sort of new guy here but this is starting to become my favorite board. Ive been looking at my old xbox 360 for awhile and thought that since the warranty is up i might as well do something cool with it. Now, this isnt a /v/ worthy LOL COOL XBOX MAWDS thread, im looking to put my 360 in a computer case. and what seperates it is that im looking to desolder the usb ports, infrared ports, and put extensions in the dvd drive cables, so that i can fit all the peripherals in the front of the case, possibly on top. Maybe even add a usb hub on top and hook that into one of the front ports and hide it away. Definitely add some extra fans, most likely a window, the works. If you would do this /diy/ what case would you use? and do you think that just some regular grade wire can be used to solder the usb ports and infrared ports to the mobo? tldr xbox in a computer case

Hi /diy/. As an avid lurker, I know this thread gets posted a lot, but I need some help thinking of relatively simple DIY projects I can do in my spare time to make a little extra cash. In return, I'll be bumping with simple diy infographics. Thanks for any help!

Hi /diy/, I come from the far off land of /cgl/ seeking knowledge from your advanced people. My question is how you would make Madoka's mostly translucent wings. My first thought was clear acrylic sheeting and a heat gun, but I'm not sure if that's dumb or on the right track. Any suggestions for working with heat and acrylics or other ideas? I don't have a big tool shop at my disposal or any power tools...

Long story short, I was performing some maintenance on my PC and kind of fucked up the power supply. I left to go have some lunch and my sister decided to let her child mess around with the tower. Turns out he flicked that little red switch on the back of the tower, and the inevitable happened. Am I safe in assuming that all I need to do is order the correct power supply and replace it? Or is it possible that it messed up the mobo too? I'd rather do this myself as it's gonna cost a fortune to get someone more knowlegable to deal with it. >pic related, its what happened.

Hey /diy/ers, I'm planning on making a little arcade machine, but I also want to design the game pad, while electronically this will be quite easy, it will need to communicate with a PC, so I guess the most effective way would be to use the USB port on my dev board as a virtual COM port. I'm assuming the simplest thing I can do is use the board to emulate a keyboard and assign buttons to it. While I manged to create a serial port connection with teraterm, I have no Idea how to link the board with the PC in a global manner rather then forced connections via teraterm. So what do I do exactly?, I'll probably test it using a single button first. Pic related, the dev board I'm using.

Hey guys first time i'll be opening up an electronic. So my laptop monitor is cracked. I figure I could replace it myself, I just don't know where to start. My laptop is a HP pavilion dv5 but I figure that doesn't really matter, just the parts. It's a 15.4 in screen. Can I just wing it by unscrewing the whole thing and replacing it? Or should I be watching a tutorial? personal experiences puh lease
