So, I want to prank a friend, and I would like to know how to glue a pvc dildo to the hood of a car.
Would hot glue work, or would I have to do some dildo to a wood spacer to the car kind of thing?
Obviously I don't want to sand and prime the surface, and I'd prefer the bond to be able to be broken without damage. If this isn't possible, I'll find some other way to be a dick to him. Probably by leaving a box full of dildos in his trunk or something.

Please think about this question, /diy/.... the stupid one first.
Is there ANY way to actually can your own food in tins? No mason jars. I'm very fond of vacuum sealing with Mylar, but I've got no idea how to vacuum seal anything with liquids. I look at military MREs and think "hey, I could probably do that and get a much longer shelf life than 5 years". There are tons of foods that pretty much last forever anyways. Honey, salamis, properly cured meats, waxed cheese, hard tack, pemmican, freeze dried/dehydrated fruits and veggies, etc etc. But what's the most cost effective and timely way to package them?
I'm open to ideas, the question is the most cost effective and efficient way to preserve foods indefinitely.
Basically one day I want to start making a huge stockpile of packaged food that will last indefinitely. As in, archaeologists could eat it a thousand years later. There have been many kinds of grains, wine, honey, etc that have been found and eaten by archaeologists with no ill effects.
I just believe it's a damn shame our emergency rations only last a measly FIVE years, and I know there has to be a way to keep healthy food edible and nutritious for a thousand years.

I would like to build a small fluid bed for powder coating. The purpose is for quick and efficient but thorough coating of cast lead bullets (this removes the need for a wax-based lubricant and allows for cleaning feeding through bullet collators and also less mess in suppressors).
My current method to apply this coating is via a vibratory tumbler, which is totally satisfactory, but I just want to try something different. The perfect setup would allow me to drop a bunch of bullets on a mesh tray made out of something like hardware cloth, heat it up slightly, dunk it, and pull out some perfectly coated bullets.
I am hoping somebody here has used an industrial sized fluid bed machine and can weigh in with their observations.
Total coating depth required will be under 2 inches.
I am familiar with the basic principles of a fluid bed setup, and there really isn't a lot more to one than in the picture shown (like always, the devil is in the details and implementation of course).
My questions are:
1) Has anyone determined a durable but effective membrane to use for this? I am considering an air filter cut to fit my apparatus but people have used everything from paper towels to brown paper bags in smaller setups for fishing lures. Average size of powder coat particles is going to run from 25-50 microns.
2) How many "bubblers" will I need for, say, a 12x12 inch bed? You can note in the diagram where the air is released in the device. Do industrial PC fluid bed tanks have many "ports"? I cannot find many/any good pictures, and almost any industrial tank is made to deal with far greater "depths". Is there an effective PSI for a fluid bed in general? Is more pressure better (until it flies out of the machine)? When using an electrostatic powder coat gun I always find a psi in the low teens to be the most effective.
I think I have this planned in my head better than I articulated, but I am just hoping someone else has tried to build one of these for hobby work.
