Beginner Blacksmithing

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hello people of /DIY/, Im 15 and very interested in learning the art of blacksmithing/metalworking, but I have no idea where to start. I would just like to know if anyone can point me in the right direction media wise to some books/videos/etc that could help me start doing this, and give me an idea of how to start my own forge. Also, I'm wondering if joining my schools jewelry making/metal working class give me a good introductory experience into the field? I don't know anyone in the class, and i'm not sure whether its just some stupid arts and crafts fest or if it has any sort of correlation with blacksmithing.

I work for a solar company doing repairs and maintenance. I get to the house to install animal guard to prevent squirrels and start cleaning it out. To make a long story short there's about 4 squirrels under the array that I jabbed at with a flat bar. Any ideas how to get the out /diy/?

Friend gave me this huge ass mace, i'd like to make some kind of display box for it or something but i think the high polish finish makes it look really cheap so i want to paint it and give it a real leather grip. Does anyone know if these chinese made weapons have any kind of plating that makes it so shiny? And if they do, is there anything i need to worry about when sanding and painting?

There are some of us on /out/ and /r9k/ that would like to build a men only compound. The basic idea would be tiny houses spread out in the woods with a main buildings housing shower/bath facilities as well as kitchen and workspaces like woodshops , metal working shops , auto mechanic areas and whatnot. There is money set aside for the project but the benefactor will not start releasing funds until a critical mass of problem solvers start taking the initiative to start fleshing the ideas out further. Areas discussed so far for buying the land are Florida Maine Southern Colorado / Northern NM Idaho and Kentucky. We have a few home builders and a plumber and electrician. We need an architect pretty bad as well as guys who can set up internet infrastructure. Anyone interested?

work shoes

recommendations for work shoes and or insoles? doesn't need to have steel toe or be "waterproof", comfort would be biggest factor doing full time greenhouse work + commuting on foot...biking does cut down on that though

Making your own car exhaust

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I know this is more of an /o/ question, but I figured you guys might have some insight. My exhaust on my car is getting kind of ratty, and I want to make my own replacement (inb4 fart cannon; I won't do that). It's originally a 2" pipe, but I was thinking about bumping it up to 3" so it could maybe breathe a little better and get better gas mileage. I'll get a stock manifold replacement, but I think a universal cat and muffler will work just fine on the 3" pipe. Has anyone here ever done this, and what do you have to take into consideration? Not my car but same make/model.

power tools

I got this 24cc 2 stroke gas trimmer. it is a bitch to get started. once it is running, giving it throttle causes it to stall. you have to feather the throttle in part way to get the revs up. to get it to run as it should. I have to put it on half choke instead of run. even then it still might stall if I don't throttle it just so.

Moen Sprinkler doesn't shut off

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Moving into a house soon, and doing some pre-move maintenance on the new place. I have a brass finish, 2-handle + spray Moen faucet, and when we first started using it, the spray would stick for a couple of seconds. Well, now it is stuck permanently, and I am unsure if it is possible to fix, or just pop over to Home Depot and get a new one ($25). Picture is of the offending sprayer.

So i've got a bedroom that for whatever reason doesn't have an overhead light. It does have a wall mounted light however, which makes it look like a bathroom or a hotel. Does a fixture exist that mounts to the wall and doesn't look like shit? What would /diy/ do?

Treadmill maintenance

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hi, I just bought a threadmill from walmart that didn't came with an user or maintenance manual, it didn't even come with the safety key. I plugged it in and, after tricking the safety key sensor, tried walking on it and it sounds rough, like the band needs lubrication. Specs of the equipment: 1HP motor, 90kg (~200lb) max load Specs of the user: 85kg (~188lb). Anyone knows what kind of maintenance or set-up steps it needs? I bought silicone lubricant to apply under the band because I remember some staff at a local gym using that on the treadmills there.

Recovering messages from answering machine destroyed by power surge

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Back when we were kids in middle school, I was staying the night at my friends house during a really bad thunderstorm. We were upstairs playing SNES games when lightning hit a power line nearby and knocked the power out. I remember the whole house lighting up like it was the middle of the day and then the power just went out. A lot of the electronics in the house were ruined, including the SNES and the TV, which pissed my friend off pretty badly as his parents couldn't replace the system until after all the insurance BS was sorted out. His parents had an old Radio Shack TAD 1006 answering machine (one of the early digital models) and it was fried, too. There were some important messages from his grandparents that he had wanted to keep on there since they had passed away earlier that year, which really bummed him out that he'd lost those messages. Yeah, well, anyway, they'd sent the machine off to someone who was good with electronics to try to fix the machine but he ended up skipping town (for some unrelated reason) and the answering machine was never returned after that. Last year my friend asked me if I remembered that night and I said of course, that's when your SNES and stuff got fried from lighting. He told me that the guy who skipped town had his house go up for sale as some point and, long story, but my friend ended up getting that old answering machine back. We have another mutual friend who's into electronics and he volunteered to take a crack at maybe getting the data off the memory chips in the machine using a Raspberry Pi. He was able to do it but he didn't have much luck getting anything useful out of the memory dump. We thought it might be worthwhile to see if anyone else with better computer skills can make any sense of it. http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=37810547663808529247

mills and lathes

12 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
ive always wanted a mill and lathe for doing random projects you just cant do with other tools. these are my requirements: >not a mini/micro machine >not a 70 year old industrial 3 phase machine that weighs more than my car (...yet) >not a combo machine (ie pic related) >not chinesium/harborfreightium if at all possible >little to no proprietary accessories or bullshit (if thats even a thing) >2500-3000 max for both >quality cnc kit available is a good bonus ive been looking at grizzly mostly, they have a good selection within my price range. i have some questions in general though; >for lathes, does it make a big difference between a .75 and 1hp motor? >for mills, does it make a big difference between a .75 and 1 and 2hp motor? >is it better to have a belt driven variable speed lathe/mill or a multi fixed speed gearbox lathe/mill? >is dro something i should be picky about getting or is it not really worth the cost? >is there anything else i should take into consideration like spindle tapers or number of feeds or other small things that the average layman may overlook? also general metalworking/shaping thread as well to help give this thread a little more substance.
