Ok guys, I'm thinking of buying a Kubota G1800. It needs a little work, but I can get it cheap. It runs and mows, but it has been rigged in a few places, ignition, throttle cable. Anyone have any experience with one of these? >pic related

So I have a 31 x 21 foot shed on 10 acres. I want to do something as a personal business in the shed or maybe with the 10 acres to make a living. I was thinking of raising goats and maybe doing wood working. Any other ideas on how I could make some money with the property for a personal business? Id prefer it if I could work from the property.

Active shutter glasses compatible with strobe lights? Home Defense thread?

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Had a crazy idea last night and wanted to see if it was even feasible. Could one time a strobe light to active shutter goggles so that the strobes effects are unnoticeable? Thinking home defense. Hit a panic button that shuts off the lights in the house, activates strobes in every room, and wear goggles that allow you to see everything while the burglar is disoriented.

Rubberized Plastic Degrading, Got Any Tips?

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I have a two year old laptop that was made cheaply in Taiwan, and the rubberized plastic that coats most of the laptop's surfaces is starting to degrade and get really sticky. I've had this situation before with mice and a few other electronics, but this is the first time it's happened so quickly. My Logitech mice had no problems for at least 4 years, and I've still got a Zune HD with a similar rubberized plastic bottom that hasn't degraded at all, but has rubbed away. Are there any ways to restore this coating to its prior state, or at least keep it from being sticky? I was thinking of trying to rub it in mineral oil since internet scuttlebutt says that peanut butter or Wolfgang's External Trim Sealant helps a bit. Otherwise, I think I'll need to remove it with isopropyl alcohol, right?

Dear /diy/nosaurs, I am planning to convert an old fridge into a fermentation chamber so that I can brew beer at home. Most people in the homebrewing community seem to use something called STC-1000, an inexpensive temperature control unit, which is basically just a temperature sensor hooked up with an MCU and two relays, that switch the fridge and an (optional) heat source I have some experience with low-voltage circuits, but I have never really built anything that runs on the mains and I am not sure how reliable these cheap Chinese electronics are. Most people seem to do fine with just wiring up the control unit with the fridge, but they are mostly homebrewers with little to no knowledge of electronics. So I was thinking about some extra precautionary measures: 1. install a simple fuse so a current surge does not destroy the thermo control unit 2. use extra, higher-rated relays to switch the fridge on/off so that the relays in the STC-1000 only have to switch a few milliamps. The built-in relays are rated for 10A, so I think they should be enough to switch a smallish refrigerator, even after accounting for the current surge upon powering up the compressor, but I really want to be on the safe side here. What would you say, /diy? tl;dr: I want to use an inexpensive temperature control unit to control a fridge and I don't want to burn my house down.

How I almost died last year

34 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
A /diy/ tale. I'm a hobby woodworker, I make fancy boxes, canes, jewelry and the like. Almost always I wear a dust mask, the 3M kind with the two pink filters. It works great, it's comfortable, the only issue is that it gets humid inside the mask. Well, last year during the summer in Florida, it was already very, very humid. Wearing the mask made it difficult to really get oxygen because of how damn hot and humid Florida is. So instead of taking a break, I continued to sand and work with black Walnut and other woods. JUST FOR AN HOUR OR SO. I have a poor immune system, and I work in a nursing home. So after some moist exotic wood dust made its way into my lungs (oh it was there, I was coughing a good bit), I went to work and got exposed to MRSA (the shit's everywhere). I started experiencing chest pain after a few days and I ignored it (I have chronic pain, I hurt all the time). It got worse. It got harder to breathe because of the chest pain. I was a tough guy and I waited too long to go to the hospital. They said if I was there an hour later I'd have been dead. I ended up with a severe MRSA infection in my lungs. For the next few days my fiancé had to feed me and stay by my side because of the critical condition. Because of the poor oxygen supply to my brain, and the significant infection, I ended up with kidney failure, heart attack, hallucinations and other issues. I was 23 years old. I barely, barely made it back and I had just asked the most wonderful woman in the world, kind smart and cute and an old soul, to marry me. I almost died three times in that hospital. I cannot stress enough the importance of having family or friend with you in the hospital; healthcare workers are often incompetent or abusive. And most of all, Please wear a dust mask.

Just finished up my new pool heater, sits on top of a propane burner and is inline after the filter. Pretty proud of the soldering, would have done another row but ran out of fittings.

Voltage inverting circuit with Multiplexer

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'm really stuck on this circuit I'm trying to build to heat and cool a block. The thermal blocks heats and cool based on whether I apply a +12/-12V at each of its inputs and I have to swap them manually to invert the heating/cooling function. I was thinking of using an Arduino that sends a Digital signal to a multiplexer to convert the voltage whenever I reach a certain temperature. So when I am at 60c, I want to heat, and at 95C I want to cool and cycle back and forth. I want to swap the voltages but I'm not sure if I can do this with a multiplexer. Can someone help me out since I'm not great at this? Thanks!

Ideas for wireless cellphone speaker

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I was given this wireless cellphone speaker amplifier. Naturally it only works if you put your phone onto it within, around 1cm, so its basically useless for that. and personally I never really had a need for it. Instead I was thinking of turning it into a pair of headphones However does DIY have any other ideas this little gadget could be used for? If I do go with the headphones I know i'll need to add on a USB for an extra power source for it to fully power these speakers. being that i sleep wearing headphones like a faggot, how would i go about making some that will withstand me falling asleep with them on. I'm thinking metal housing with some good wire protection. Not too different from the insides of turtle beaches headphones, but better and no mic.

Water upswell

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hey guys, So I live in a rental in Australia. The house is an old style Queenslander with an concrete under house section. Whichever genius built this place decided that to get extra head room under the house they would just excavate down a foot or so and concrete line the whole thing. It rains heavily regularly here and the under house is constantly being flooded with water. Pictured is an area of water upswell which literally fountains up from beneath the house slab when it rains. Clearly there the water is running through the ground being pressurised up through the slab. The real fix would be to raise the house and pour a new slab above ground level but it's a rental so I'm not going to do that. Is there something I can use to seal the areas of upswell in the slab? Like an expanding foam or concrete sealant. This would be temporarily but would solve my problem as a renter. >tldr: water comes up from beneath my house. Is there something I can seal the concrete with?

So I found out I had a mice infestastion recently

surfed through countless of humane mice traps but didn't find anything that works, any diy projects that worked for you? I know all about the bottle on a bucket type of traps, but it's too big for what I need, thanks!

Anyone make their own shift knob? The one in my car has broken apart, probably due to old age. Its made of a semi-hard rubbery plastic. I've gorilla glued it together and its held up for now. But I know its going to break soon. I can feel it flexing and trying to sheer itself apart when I shift into reverse I'm working on making a replacement one out of wood to match the rest of the trim. Working on possibly improving the design to make it more ergonomic as well.

I have 2 pc's (soon a third high-end pc) and 4 phones and generate around 300-550H/s on DSH and around 200-300H/s on ETH. How bad is that and how can I be more effective? Also Electricity is included in the rent What setup does /diy use?

Making a game...

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hello people of /diy/, I plan on making a game over the next couple of days but don't know which engine/platform I should use. I want to make the game in 2D, so unreal 4 would be a little overkill. The issue is that I don't want to use something that's too light and end up making the entire thing from scratch. I'm ok on Java but don't want to mess with LWJGL. What would you guys recommend? Pic is what the game would be called

I just bought a 1969 CT90 that's been neglected for a few years, It's not too far from running but I want to do more with it than just that. I want restore it. Here's the problem though, I know virtually nothing about painting or metal finishing. It's rusted in a few spots and the chrome bits are a little rusted. I can clean the rust up but I'm not sure how to prepare a surface for painting or how to paint for that matter. The chrome really has me worried though, chroming kits online are really expensive and have some really nasty chemicals, so I've written off doing that myself, but I was wondering if there was something I could do to give the metal a nice chrome appearance. I could send the parts to an actual place that specializes in chroming parts but that doesn't seem very "do it yourself"

hey /diy/ I'm an industrial designer. I need 3d printed parts now and then. small stuff mostly. I have a friend at a local printing company and get a fair bit of discount. the prices are quite high though. a bod of mine had something milled in china and just picked it up when he was there on vacation (good timing). it was stupid cheap and they even did a good job. can I print overseas for cheap ? google just redirects me to makerspaces in china and all that. would it even make sense or are the material and energ costs for sls printing that high ?
