making money with your DIY skills

3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: images.jpg]
Hey /diy. I wrote this tutorial for anyone interested in selling stuff they make online since I see people asking every now and then. If you have any questions let me know. PART 1 For someone who doesn't have a lot of money to spend there are two basic ways to make money online. 1 - Making something and selling it 2 - Providing a service Since I am in the first category let me share how to get started. *** Making something and selling it *** If I had to start over this is what I'd do. First I'd spend an entire week on www.etsy.com. In case you don't know this is a huge marketplace of handmade goods. I'd check out all the categories, and really pay attention to everything. You aren't looking for specifics here, you are just trying to get a bird's eye view of everything the first day. When you are browsing around keep asking yourself - "Could I make something like this?" "Could I FIGURE OUT how to make something like this? Find a tutorial or a book or something to learn?" "Could I make it better?" "Could I make it with a different style / options / etc?" "Could I make a simpler OR more fancy version of this to sell for less / more then what is currently available?" Pay attention to stores that have lots of feedback, as obviously this means they are doing pretty good. Ignore any stores that have only a few sales (feedback), even if the items they sell are really cool to you it means there isn't much of a market for them on etsy. Ok so now that you are comfortable browsing etsy you need to make a list of stuff you think you could make or learn how to make in the immediate future. Bookmark stores that are doing well and that interest you, and include items that you SEE selling well, and also items that you THINK would probably go good as well.

I picked up a bike basket at a thrift store for $5. Its all stainless steel but its covered in rust from being left outside or something. I took my dremel to it and manage to clean up a few parts real nicely. Only problem is doing the entire thing will take days of dedicated work and the Dremel to not give out. Any kind of spray I can apply to it that will dissolve the rust and I just wash it off? Bonus points for cheap/can be bought at Lowes.

Washer drain hose

16 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: IMG_0794.jpg]
Installing a washer and I'm wondering if the hose you put into the drain pipe has to be caulked, or if it's supposed to be free for airflow or something? During the drain cycle the water currently backs up out of the top of this drain pipe, I'm wondering if that means I need to caulk it or if that means the drain is partially clogged sort of and I need to get a snake and run it through.

So I made a pendant out of a silver coin using rudimentary hand tools.. now I need a way to buff out all the micro-abrasions from the file and what not. How do I do this? I tried fine-grit sand paper but it doesn't seem to be smooth enough and causes the metal to tarnish to an ugly yellow.

I just had an idea for an rc controller mod that would be pretty cool . I want to set up an old e10 remote controller inside my old xbox racing wheel. Besides just tearing everything apart and getting all the individual parts and figuring out what they do it shouldn't be too hard right

I have a problem with a noisy bed I built a lofted bed a few months ago, the joints are secured by a few screws near the top and carriage bolts near the bottom which also attaching the legs. When i tighten the screws the bed stop making noise for the most part, but it is getting to the point were I'm tightening the screws every month and its getting slightly annoying. Is there a way to fix this. The basic searches say to use talcum powder, wax, or graphite to lube the joint. I'd rather a more permanent fix that will not mess up the wood. If I take it apart and use wood glue on the joints would this fix the problem. Would I be able to take the bed apart later if i use glue? Should I just get some L brackets and put a few more screws in each corner? Or should I place another cross beam so the bed cant move as easily? What do the /diy/ woodworkers think is the best solution?

So /diy/, I'm going to be learning how to use a CNC mill in the coming weeks. I've been advised to chose something I'd like to make on it as an example. So, what do you recommend that I choose, that will be a good introduction to the functionality of a CNC mill, without being too complicated? The machine is capable of machining plastics and aluminum, but apparently not anything tougher than that.

Quick soldering problem for you all. I bought an AC adaptor for a guitar pedal online and the fucks decided not to tell me that it doesn't come with the plug on the other end. I've yanked one off an old Sega power pack and just wanted to know if I could use this assuming that it fits the plug on the pedal fine. Furthermore, which wire should I solder to which? The pedal is the one on the left, the plug is on the right. Pedal adaptor - Red wire + White wire Plug - Black and White wire + Black Wire Obviously I'll give the copper a good clean before I do any soldering. I can provide any further information if you need it. >tldr - what do I solder to what?

Hey /diy/, advise me. I have four retired racing greyhounds. Our backyard is fenced and they go out there to do their business. In the winter, when the sun goes lower on the horizon, the porch roof shades the ground where the dogs land when they jump off the porch and enter the grass. As a result when we get rain, it turns into a muddy mess. I put a tarp down to keep them from tracking the mud into the house, but this doesn't let it dry (which takes forever b/c its always shaded). I put in the black drainage pipe last winter and it helps. Before, when it rained the whole area was a mess. Anyhoo, what are some ideas to make this situation better? tl;dr how to remedy mud in shady spot? pic related. its the spot

I recently got a Leopard Gecko and I am looking into different ways to make my own hides and fake rocks. So far spray foam and paint/grout looks like the best option but if anyone has opinions or experiences then please do share. >inb4 *tells me to research*

Long story short, frustration with whether or not I should continue attending college and 'what should I do with my life' has lead me to this question. Has anyone ever heard of any collectives that focus on autodidacticism? Basically the closest thing one can get to a free higher-learning education without the degree or the fees, and it'd be a great way to find out what you're actually interested in before blowing all that cash. Also, if you're like me, it's always a great motivator to study in an environment with others who are doing the same. I only come here once in a blue moon, so if anyone's interested or can enlighten me a bit, hit me up on either: AIM: pleasurepusscake (preferably) Skype: amnesiatic

Hey /diy/, I've been trying to get in better shape recently, and I'm curious if you guys have any do it yourself type of things you use to work out. I already have a weight set and a benchpress made out of an old howitzer shell box from the war in Vietnam, but I want something to do pull ups with, boxing bag or whatever they're called, and if you have any ideas, how to simulate running or jogging without a lot of space. I live on a dangerous road and I don't wanna go running out in the freezing rain. Any tips?
