Metal trim restoration

6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Sup /diy/nosaurs, need help restoring the metal trim on pic related, hauled off the side of the road for a new life as my workshop stereo. Everything still works somehow, now is the time to tear it down and clean 40 years of filth off it. The chrome parts are easy, 000 or finer steel wool, but I am worried about the brushed aluminium fascia and ring on the player. Is there a way to remove the corrosion spots in such a manner that will not marr the grain of the metal or damage the lettering? (detail pic to follow) Cheers for reading guys!

As a gaggle of jolly handy gents, how do you handle cleaning up a room? Specifically, a junk-packed area. I'm talking a garage filled with knickknacks of all sorts. Holiday decorations, decaying power tools, crusty and neglected hand tools and odds and ends. And what's your best find when cleaning up a neglected area? I've been banging away for eight hours total in my garage, although a bunch of time has been spent cleaning up rusted tools by hand. I found a Klein linesman pliers that looked like utter ass and were practically seized up, but managed to clean 'em up and get them moving smoothly. They're older than me by at least 5 years.

Water drainage for a foundation

3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hello DIY. So the TL;DR I find my self taking over a caved in basement/below ground garage repair project. The garage is below ground, Lots of rain happened (There was NO drainage) and caved the wall in. We had a contractor but he bailed. Basically enough is done now that I just need to do a little more cleaning/digging, Finish setting the last of the 4 I-beams we are using to support that side of the house, Hire a mason to come block the rest of the walls in and then I need to deal with the drainage. We currently have a 6 - 8ft pit dug around that side of the house for when we demoed what was left of the wall... My question, what and HOW should I deal with the drainage issue? Its on a hillside so it gets bombarded with water, So a simple french drain comes to mind (Gravel, drainage pipe, Landscape fabric, etc) but if I do that how deep should it go? How deep does it NEED to go? Should The drain be installed at the bottom of this pit with the entire thing being loose fill gravel? Should I fill half of it with dirt, install the drain and the last 3 - 4ft with gravel? Or should I just fill it all back in with dirt and put the french drain about 2ft in the ground? & how close should it be to the wall to help relieve the pressure of all the water? Thanks in advance. (Pic related but not from my project)

CNC / Machining Thread

How do you guys deal with machining on more than one face of the same part, like if I wanted to machine the top and the sides of a box of material. I imagine a jig of some sort is involved to make sure the part is precisely positioned in the machine. Also, post your setups here.

DIY airbrush

18 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hi /diy/! I will be soon trying to make an airbrush. Cheaply and easly, but not toooo getto. So no spray cans and pens... Anyways, i've been thinking if a design like this will work. Blue arrow is air, red is paint. I wanted to use a bent hospital needle with a hole where the bending is, housed in some metal tube, to serve as a mixing chamber of sort. Will something like this work? I dont fully understand how these things work yet. I made the picture on my phone, that's why it's shit, and i didnt include any valves or smth. Also, do you have any expierences with using an airtank instead of a compressor? I'm intending to meke some from soda bottles. Thanks in advance!

24 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hi /diy/ anons I refuse to work like normal people and I have a house in a demanded and relatively expensive zone of the city just 5 block of distance of a really expensive zone. So I want to build a extra room in the roof for rent. The house is build with bricks and steel supports and already have a big room in 1/3 of the roof 3*4 meters one bathroom The cheaper the materials the better I only need to built 2 exterior walls because the roof already have 2 big walls surrounding the building, like the picture but taller. What material I need to do that ? Is hard ? I've never built something like that before ? I have 4 months to learn to do it, what websites or books I would look ? I dont want to pay someone to do it they want 7 times the price of the materials

So I bought these boots in hopes it would last a good long while. Me still being new to buying boots and all i thought it was a good investment. It happens to be that the soles are wearing out in only a month that i bought 'em. I know their repairable but i dont want to constantly put money into the boot for what id think to be every month and s half. Im a maintence worker and deal with both dry and hot weather and also deal with a lot of areas with water. Also, i wasnt sure if waterproof was the way to go. Any recommendations for a good long lasting boot without having to throw down money for the soles? Comfort is key mind you. >Obvious is obvious

Since I started going on this board, I have become more frugal and less wasteful with things. Long story short, I work as a pool boy at a casino in Las Vegas (first job) and I get these that are used to tie together the towels. I throw away approximately 600 yards of it a day, but I was wondering what I could possibly do with it (crafts, home tool, anything really) Anything is better than it being thrown out in my opinion.

>buy cheap furniture at IKEA >the instructions are indecipherable >shitty plywood breaks when you hit it with a hammer >five of the screws are missing in the end An entire day wasted on assembling a shelf that can't be completed. Why the fuck do people buy flat pack furniture, again? Why is IKEA still in business?
