What is this?

Hey DIY, Where can I buy semi-thick metal foil? I need a small, thin sheet of metal for a project. It needs to be thin enough that I can write on it with a nail, but thick enough that it doesn't get pierced in the process. Any idea what a good thickness would be, or where I could buy some? Pic related is what I'm planning on making for an Art Gened, a Roman Curse tablet

Single pipe steam radiators in apartment

6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I know you guys are mostly into digital technology but anyway for anyone who knows plumbing pretty well, particularly steam radiators, I've got 4 in this apartment I'm in on the 3rd floor. It's a single return system meaning the radiators fill with steam and ideally have a shutoff valve which is steam/heat activated and shuts off after letting air out, then I believe after the radiator cools they open so that air can re-enter to let the condensed water (from the steam) return back down the pipe Problem is two of my 4 radiators in here have this cap, rather than a valve. Ive made sure the two with valves (vents I should say) are functioning right, but the one in my bedroom in particular I have been just leaving the cap (again not a vent for some reason) open... because it was being really noisy. And up until today that was bad, as far as noise but suddenly for some reason it entirely filled with steam for the first time and started shooting out the side of the radiator. I put a rubber glove on and put the cap on it... Should I for now, until I can get the landlord to put vents on these, or do it myself with new vents and teflon tape, be opening the cap to allow air inside so the condensate can drain between cycles? What a pain, but I'll do it even if it means more disrupted sleep for now. Otherwise in theory, based on what you guys know about physics would happen if 1) I leave the cap firmly on as it is now, just as a cycle has finished. or 2) Open the cap in a few minutes, let the condensate drain and then re-cap it. I believe the clanking is happening in part from a capped radiator which is stupid, since it's got NO controllable shutoff valve , only ONE does... because basically trapped water is hitting the steam every time it does a cycle. Also 3) Is it safe to just let the steam comeout for now even though is pretty heavy and so forth? I'm *assuming* the landlord was smart enough to have a machine which adds water to the boiler but really don't know.

I got some 40 watt four foot shop light enclosures I intend to use to replace some 100 watt incandescent bulbs in my garage. The enclosures have grounded plugs, however light bulb adapters have no provision for ground. I know there are ungrounded plug adapters with a ground attachment point, but I'm trying to do this without running a grounding wires. Does an LED DC converter need to be grounded long-term?

Selling Scrap

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Inspired by the dumpster diving thread and the interesting salvage people find but may not necessarily find a use for. Considering people around /diy/ tend to be pretty thrifty and also have an eye for the 'potentially useful', does anyone in here dabble in selling scrap metals or electronic scrap to scrapyards and recycling companies? I've been considering dabbling in it a bit, since I consider the value of my labor negligible because I like fiddling with things in my spare time, like taking things apart or stripping wire while I watch the youtubes, and sorting items is basically how I relax. I don't expect to make any significant amount of money, it's more just for fun and to get rid of scrap wires that I felt bad just tossing, and it makes me feel a bit better knowing it may be used and won't end up in the lungs of some poor Chinese or Pakistani or Ghanese e-waste salvager. For those who do sell scrap, how far do you go for it? Melting down circuitry for gold? Dumpster diving? Ever buy cheap shit at thrift stores just to make a few cents profit? Just idly stripping wires? Not even bothering stripping wires? Illegally melting pennies (pre-1982 especially)? Even more illegally stealing copper pipe? What materials do you salvage? Just metals? Plastics? Whole components? Or, alternately, no one here gives a shit about scrapping for money and the thread dies.

my water pressure pump just 404d I still haven't figure it out if it was the capacitor, or if the motor coil just burned how can I diagnose a bad capacitor using only a cheap multimeter? thanks

/diy/nosaurs, I'm looking for an indoor house plant that is very hardy and quick to use liquid. I play a lot of online poker and keep knocking my Gatorade bottles over during long sessions. I cant just get up to piss. I've got to keep playing or lose my stack. I'm looking for a plant I can set next to my battlestation and use as a urinal. It does not need to handle excrement. Only urine. "Piss plant" in google only brings up batshit crazy claim for a hybrid coleus that's suppose to repel cats/ dogs from gardens. I need an indoor human urine variety. tl:dr: I'm looking for a natural, indoor DIY urinal.

Diaper Boy

61 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
About seven months ago I made a post about Diaper Boy whom I caught with his drawers off on my gamecam and he also vandalized my trailer on my rural property, which I do not dwell on. I filed an incident report with the sheriff's department and they did zilch. After two months I referred this incident to the juvenile probation department and a probation officer conducted an investigation. It has been a long road but finally last Wednesday 06Jan15 that teenage freak went before the judge and he plead guilty to trespassing and was granted 6 months probation. It is closure of sorts that Bastard.

Intercom Box to Computer Mic?

My friend came across a multi-line intercom box with the microphone (Hamilton Air Model 3001-6 Multi-Lane Intercom, to be exact), and I was thinking about using it as my computer's new microphone. Any thoughts on how I could accomplish this?

Where to source HUGE numbers of ping pong balls?

22 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I need about 3000-5000 of them, and they need to be actual ping pong balls, not those crummy plastic beer pong balls. Anyone know where I might find them on the cheap? They can be either intact or broken/dented, and they don't have to be tournament-grade high quality like pic related. As long as they're not going to cost too much. Any ideas?

Where can I get raw glass wool, like the stuff they use in insulation? I need it without all the colorants and binders they add to consumer insulation, preferably for cheap. The plan is to heat it up so the fibers will stick together when I compress it, but additives will mess that up. pls halp /diy/

Anyone know how to pick this type of lock? Only tutorials I can find are for regular locks. Im studying abroad in italy and my dorm room has a staircase leading up to a locked empty room that I really want to open up so me and my room mate can have seperate rooms.

How to genocide kitchen ants?

I made my own borax traps, but the little fuckers just laugh at them. I even bought traps from the store which do the exact same shit as borax traps, but that just makes them take a vacation and doesn't eradicate the colony. I'm on the second floor and I have a cat, so I have no way to find their hive or use anything super toxic. I'm literally throwing my spice rack at them, working my way up the alphabet until I find something they hate.

A safety pin jewel – say what?!

9 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
A box of safety pins in my closet…lying around all those years…useless……oh! I wish…!:/ the hardest thing in making today’s necklace was buying the package of safety pins, can you imagine!? I couldn’t … Wandering around from shop to shop, the only thing I noticed was that they were neither in numbers I wanted nor at the price I thought pins should be, however I found them in the end. What a relief! https://umorisa.wordpress.com/2016/01/10/a-safety-pin-jewel-say-what/

I watched pretty much every video in this playlist. https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQX9MsRl-1XtBy14K8GoWHQP0KDLDQWQA It got me thinking about machining. What are the equipment that he uses called? There's a metal lathe, then there's a turntable of some type. What are common machines found in machine shops called? How hard are they to make? How long do they last? I was thinking that using a lathe to make another lathe would be pretty cool. If I ever decide to start machining, would it be possible to buy one or two machines and use those to make any other machines I'd need? Would it be possible to turn a profit creating metal machining equipment to cover the cost of the equipment itself?

How difficult is it to make clothes? As in, for myself. Does it require a big amount of expertise? Is it doable to make durable clothes without a sewing machine? I feel like i'm paying a lot of money for shit that only roughly fits me, while it should be much cheaper when I do it for myself.
