Hey DIY I recently went to an art museum and saw the works of Alec Soth I am really in love with the related image. Where can I print a large version of this in gloss photo print without getting people asking me about copy right issues and such? Because I can't find it anywhere online for sale, aside from his photography books. I just want to hang it up on my wall in perhaps a 24x30 format or maybe a smaller 18x24.

Final Stealth Van thread. >12v 900ah, 10kWh battery bank >800w Solar Array >12v 100a EV Charger (50 cents per kWh) >160a Vehicle Alternator >30a Inverter Charger from AC wall outlet Thanks for helping me perfect the build /diy/, sharing my last revision. Added functional 12v ac, ev charging, better wiring diagrams, cleaner cable management, in addition to ironing out some stuff. With rebates this could be a sustainable alternative to houses for less than $20,000. I'll post all the links later.

Looking to build a desk, but I'm kind of on a budget. I already have a small desk (4x2 feet) and want to make an L-shaped desk with one of the table-tops from IKEA. Only problem is is that $45 seems steep to me for just the top of it. Any idea where I can find the same kind of table-top (material-wise, color, size- about the same) for cheaper or any other alternative? Any help is appreciated.

Has anyone been to the ReStores? - apparently they sell used appliances, tools, and construction stuff. Are they worth the trip? I building some cold frames for school and I am looking for inexpensive pipe or lumber and some plastic film.

Hey, I thought you guys might like this. I came across some old radio equipment in the catacombs deep within the bowels of the school of engineering at my university. There's a Hallicrafters HT-37 transmitter, and two Drake 2B receivers with 2B2 Q-multipliers, along with a box filled with tubes, a code key, antenna cable, and other nice old equipment. I bought one of the receivers back to my lab today to test it. I powered it up nice and slow with a variac, and it actually seems to work. I can receive something on the 80 meter band, the 20 meter band, and one other band that's on an auxiliary crystal that I believe covers 9.9-10.5 mhz. I can't actually hear anybody, though. I'm getting plenty of static and 'radio noise', but I can't hear any actual transmissions. I'm just using a random-wire antenna, though, and the lab does have quite a bit of building between it and the outside. So, what I ask of you is what I should do next. There's a crystal in there for the 40-meter band, but I don't seem to be getting anything on that band. All the switches seem to need a good cleaning too. Should I replace tubes? Replace capacitors? What should be done to these old radios? I've done some work with amplifiers before, but radio isn't really my thing. That's why I want to work on this equipment, to learn more about radio.

Does anyone have any advice for building my own lab? I'm not interested in brewing drugs, bombs, etc. I'm currently working on my PhD in inorganic chemistry and would like to be able preform some off topic experiments in my spare time. Ideally I would like something in the style of a Victorian lab, pic related. Glass equipment is easy enough to get but what do you guys suggest for gas taps, heating and extraction?

Waterproofing a roof

Hi /diy/ my grandmother need to waterproof the roof since it has some leaks, I have experience painting doors, fences,... I'll maybe use liquid waterproofing rubber, she has already bought it so I don't know exactly what it is. Could any of you give me some advice to not to ruin it all? Pic semi-related: looks exactly like the roof, but completely sealed with a red rubber waterproof product.

electric pump & water heater in one unit?

11 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: pump.jpg]
Night /diy/ To get hot water in my apartment you turn on the immersion heater, it heats the water in the insulated tank, then when you turn on a tap/shower the water is pumped to the tap by a noisy old pump. Pretty inefficient. Is there a combined pump/heater unit I could install that would heat and pump the water on demand? Something like an electric shower unit maybe? "Triton" type electric showers are common here in the UK. I'd like to install something that would heat and serve instant hot water to the kitchen as well as the shower. Pic is my current pump.

Reorganizing my room

I know this is a terrible layout for a room, but I'm not sure how to reorganize it to be a little more linear, anyone have better input? Also the left side of the room is all windows, the other two walls are bare and the door is at the slanted bottom. >it came pretty much already furnished, the hammock is the only thing that's mine.

Speaker switchbox

12 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 333em1j.jpg]
Ok, I m noob at this and I don't want to ruin this connector with trial and error. I m trying to make a simple speaker switchbox that should have one set of inputs L+R, and 3 set of outputs, also L+R. So i guess there should be 2 wires from input to the switch, and 2x3 wires from switch to outputs. Also, what should I do with the ground wire? Any help appreciated.

Paint thinner/stain

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: minwax.jpg]
Kind of a dumb question, but if my general goal is to lightly stain a large amount of wood and I have only a little bit ,2 ounces or so, of stain, but it is a dark tint, and I have lots of cheap thinner (naptha), can I make a whole new half quart or so of a lighter stain just by adding a bunch of thinner to the darker one? The wood needs not be waterproofed in this application. Essentially I am a cheap bastard, and just want to stain some wood wood for a project,but don't really want to plop $12 down on another quart of minwax since I have no real strong preference for shades and whatnot. I just want a light stain. Capiche?

ethanol fireplace fuel

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Anywhere_Fireplace_Chelsea_Black_In(...).jpg]
I was gifted this ethanol fireplace and just ran out of fuel for it. I'm told denatured alcohol from the hardware store will not be good to burn indoors due to its harsher denaturants. A case of the "approved" stuff is ~$90/12 litres (smart fuel is what I had). Even the "approved" fuel has a stink-bug-like smell, especially once extinguished. In Pennsylvania, grain alcohol like ever clear is banned unless you sign a paper and get a permit and promise not to drink it. From what I gathered (need to confirm) it's not the 190 proof, only 151 and runs almost 2x the cost of smart fuel at $13/fifth. Although distilling my own fuel is a goal, I need something soon that isn't dangerous to burn inside, low odor, and cheaper than $90/12litres. I'm thinking a 50/50 mix is an option, but I'm not sure what the best option is.
