How do I pour a floor? I need a cement garage floor. I have dirt right now. I have the floor dug down 4 inches and levelled. Sides are delineated with 2x4's. Bought some chicken wire to reinforce the bottom of the slab What do I do when the cement truck shows up? What is the procedure like? Is the general technique to just spread it around and make it as smooth as possible? Any tools you can recommend buying? I plan to do a 10x20 slab alone...i have no friends other than you.

Hi /diy/ sc/out/ here, need a quick advice/info from you guys. I cracked my bicycle's front derailleur, looking at pic related(it's a shitty pic I know) do you think that if I apply a bit of weld to it, it will maintain its structural integrity? thanks

Powering 4 LED strips + Controller

8 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
So I'm great with computers, work in IT and all that but this electrical stuff is just not making sense to me. This is why I'm not an engineer. So I need to get about 17.4 metres (57") of led strips setup and with a wireless controller. I've found these cheap Chinese ones which look like they'll be good enough, but I don't get what kind of power I need for them. I guess I just need to multiply the wattage by 4? That would be 240w and so I just get a 240w power supply? And what kind of wiring do I need to do to get this kind of supply working? Will connecting 4 of these together even work in the first place and all be controllable by the one remote? Is there any other parts I'm missing? I'm completely out of my element here.

Why do Western-style saws even exist, when the performance of Japanese saws shits all over any push design?

Underground houses

39 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I have always dreamed of owning an underground house. I am curious about the price difference of building underground vs. above ground. From my understanding the biggest problems come from condensation forming on the walls due to temperature difference between wall and inside of house. This can be fixed by insulating the wall both on the outside and inside. Usually by using special fiberglass insulating panels on the outside, and maybe foam to seal concrete from inside of the house. I also want your ideas on the issue of condensation, as well as ventilation systems for building underground in a cold climate, such as Colorado. Don't need to worry about building codes and stuff, I have specialists for that. The other thing that worries me is how to calculate rough pressure loads for the "roof". Lets say the house is 4ft under the dirt, a 10ft x 10ft room. Maybe I want it to also not cave in if a heavy mac truck happens to roll over it?

Hey /diy/. I'm thinking about taking up woodworking, what am I going to need and any tips? I'm an apprenticed plumber so I have some basic diy/hardware knowledge but not a ton about working with just wood.

Having never used any CAD software before, i've got a few questions. Will something like autoCAD allow me to build a frame using tubing with specific size and wall thickness and then tell me the weight of the frame? How much weight it can support? Starting to plan out an airboat build, and want to learn the software as it might be useful for my job (starting heavy fabrication apprenticeship). Also, i just want to design and build something from scratch. Being an Australian, i've never even seen an airboat before so I'm pretty stoked.

Shitty roof

Pic related is the roof of the back of my house. It was an addition many years ago. As you can see, it has no shingles and looks shitty. On top of that it leaks. What kind of roof sealant can I use to fix this garbage?

Can I safely replace a 15 amp circuit breaker with a 20 amp breaker? I have two bedrooms sharing one 15A circuit for some reason. With a window air conditioner and a computer in one room, and another window air conditioner and computer in the other room all running, the breaker will eventually trip. If any one of those devices is left off, it won't trip. Lights do not dim. Oregon state code requires at least 14 ga wire outside kitchens and bathrooms, so I would assume that's what's been used for most outlets. Not that I'm trying to draw 15A from a single outlet, it's spread out.

How Do I not destroy my new tool?

Hey guys. I'm about to purchase my first small tool for little projects in wargaming. I've seen/read loads of stuff about how to use, how to make, how to get certain results, etc... My question is: what should I NOT do ? Like, what is the best way to make sure my tool will live a long and happy lifespan and what can I expect to NEVER achieve with it? Thank's for any help!

Summer heat fix for $0.99: Space Blanket

14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I live in an apartment building and I've had an issue with severe heat for several summers so far. I've had to install an AC and it has helped but it also costs me a ton of $$$ every month. Main problem is that All my windows are E and SE facing so the amount of sunlight that I get per day is huge. I've also tried installing new blinds and dark curtains but none of those have fixed the heat issue since the sunlight/heat still ends up inside of your room. Last week I was looking at window tints for windows and even the cheapest option was something like $25/window. Well, Few days ago I had an idea that maybe I could line my windows with a space blanket. Went to a dollar store and picked two of them for $2 and I cut them up and attached them to windows with some soapy water from a spray bottle. Worked like a fucking charm! My temp inside of the apartment is so low now that I don't need AC at all. Space blanket film is very fragile and kinda looks ugly because all the creases, from the way it was folded, are visible but I couldn't really care less. It reflects all the sunlight away from your rooms. It's also transparent so about 10% of the sunlight still enters your room which is great because you don't need lights. Anyway, my first post on /diy/... hope this is helpful to others.

outside wall conduit

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I am going to run cat6 cable for wired ethernet between 2 rooms on an outside wall. House has Fiber internet installed, the installer hacked up a lot of the old cable COAX wiring. In the master bedroom, going to replace the coax wall plate with RJ45 plate, and reuse the hole in the wall that go outside how the coax was originally run. So there is going to be bare cat6 on my outside wall, its only about 5 feet. Its brick. What should I use to cover it? Whats the least big and intrusive conduit or covering I can get that would be ok for it?
