Can someone tell me what those little plastic pieces inside the cabinet are called? You put them on the two corners where the cabinet door hits the cabinet frame so it kind of softens the closing and doesn't make as loud or a sound.

Resin noob

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'd like to use resin in an art project. Imagine I took a small bronze elephant statue and started painting it with layers of resin, adding small details (paint) each layer. A layer would be thin I assume, so it would be like 30 layers or however many are required to get maybe 3/8ths of an inch depth. Is there a particular formula of resin best suited for this? I'd shoot for clear and bubble-less; I see people use heatguns for the bubbles, would this cause the resin to just flow off the sides of the elephant? What sort of buildup can I expect each layer? How cured does it have to be before I can paint on it? Should I brush it on, or try to pour it over? What sort of transparent clarity can I assume I'll end up with? Thanks, all help is appreciated

One of the prongs of my audio connector broke inside the input, as you can see. The white thing in the red input is the prong. I've tried using super glue to attach to the prong, then remove it, but it's not a strong enough bond to hold. Any ideas? Maybe I should try threading a hole through the middle then pulling it out? lol

Tiny home

hi guys, i need a little tips and tricks or perhaps a guide on building a tiny home. i'm not planning on building it yet but my limitations are > it has to be $60,000 or less > a footprint no more than 150 square feet and 1800 cubic feet. > it has to work sustainable "off the grid" (as in i can go without electricity or city plumbing and such) i'm hoping to be finished with the design/planning of this house over the next 9 weeks. i'll start building soon after that.

Hey friends, so my exhaust muffler is kinda old and it has some pretty small holes, after inspection it was told me to fix it, thing that can be done pretty easy with a couple welds. The question is I don't have any experience neither equipment but my mentality is to buy the tools and learn to use them rather than pay to someone to do so, now can a complete newbie do a decent job with a couple hours watching youtube and training in some piece of steel? Also how much can I expect to spend in a welding machine that will last me? ANy hell is appreciated and thanks for your time in advance.

Can i use the Euclidean tower method to deliver light to an aeroponics tower? I wish i could draw a picture but it will be a filing cabinet with the drawers shortened to allow a small cardboard rectangle to be behind them. The drawers will be lined with a hyper reflective material(like in a UVC light air purifier). This cardboard will also be lined wit the material, a hole cut at each level, and a concave lens with parabola pointed towards plants.

Making bricks without clay?

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hi /diy/, My question might seem stupid,it is basically the title. Is there any way to make bricks without using clay or cement? I'm working on a project and we have sand, straw, manure, but no dirt (not easily, at least) I was looking into making adobe and such, and I know you're supposed to use clay, but I've seen a video (that I can't find now) where they only seemed to use sand, manure, and some sort of plant. Thanks

DIY Pain Management

52 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Good morning, /diy/! I was at my parents' house last night and my Father told me about how his doctor's office screwed him out of his Percocet pain management meds. He NEVER takes more than the prescribed dose, and he routinely has his blood tested to make sure he is not abusing. 3 days ago he called the doctor to advise that he only has 4 of his pills left, and the receptionist on the other end saw he was on schedule and said she would call when his script is ready. He called them back yesterday and the same receptionist said that the doctor he's been seeing is no longer writing scripts for pain management and that he'd have to see a new doctor on Thursday. He told them he's down to only 2 pills but all they could offer was to tell him to break them in half and make them last for the next 5 days. That is out of the question. The pain in his wrists, back, and ribs is too much for a half-pill to calm and further 4 half-pills over 5 days just doesn't add up. tl;dr - what are some OTC medicines or combination of medicines that can help ease his pain until his appointment on Thursday?

Hello /diy/ I would like to make a necklace where I can hide a Micro SD card on it, and that must be waterproof. I thought something similar, but I have no really idea to make it waterproof and invisible (a hinge is too much visible). Do you got some ideas ?

Van living battery setup

11 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
This is my diagram for my battery setup to live in a van. Do you find anything wrong with how I have wired it? These are the batteries I am going to buy. https://www.batteriesplus.com/battery/rv/deep-cycle/6/sligc110 I am going to use 4 or 8 guage wire. I guess my only big question is do I need to change the negative wire on the inverter to the first deep cycle battery and not the second?

220v in a van

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'm about to become a van dweller and want to prepare the interior for living by myself. Now i didn't do electronics for a long time but i know how to hold a soldering iron, and i'm trying to high-level plan out how to 220v power the van. My current idea is to: 1. Add second (multiple ?) batteries. (do i have to upgrate the alternator ?) 2. Get a generic 1kW 12/220V inverter. 3. Monitor the batteries voltage and turn the engine on if needed to charge. Now this plan has a shitload of unknown variables so i wanted to throw the ball around with you. How do i calculate the parameters so i wont drain the batteries in 1 hour if i know i'm using X watts, maybe i can make some kind of "time left at current power usage". How do I protect from over powering (using too much ampers, not a native speaker). I imagine i would be using a mac charger once every couple hours (60W), some led lightning (20W ?), and once in a while some high power utility like a microwave or a heater (1kW). I would be grateful for any tips and thoughts.

So I was supposed to start a course in electrotechnology but they are filled up for this semester. Next semester starts in July. I've got no job and a lot of time to kill between now and then. What are some good books to read up on to prepare myself? My ultimate goal is to join medecins sans frontiers as an electrician who can repair anything; generators, water pumps, 4WDs, medical equipment, radios, computers. Anything that is needed in a field type scenario, similar to a medical hospital for the army. I have no skills at the moment and I really need someone to point me in the right direction because I am so overwhelmed and no idea where to start. Thank you in advance.

I'm looking to make a barrier to keep a baby from accessing certain areas, but I don't want to deal with some inconvenient fence thing, so I was thinking of doing something with cat spikes. Does anyone have experience with a similar project?
