>Object: Plastic "hourglass", takes about 30 sec for black liquid (oil?) to go from one chamber to the other. Clear liquid (water?) stays separate of the black liquid and is lighter than the black, making it stay above the black liquid. There is also air in the system, which of course stays on top. Object has a small rubber "cork" to isolate the system. >Problem: I once removed the cork because of curiosity at some time between 1998 and 2006. After I did this, the behavior of the object changed. The bubbles of the black liquid used to run smoothly in an expectable pattern, and with an even size when passing through the chamber separator. Now it's just a chaos, bubbles vary in size and there is always excess black liquid in different parts of the system when it comes to a standstill. I am not sure if there was any air in the system or not before I removed the cork. >Is there any way I can restore the object to its former glory?

What Should I Do With This?

I recently came into possession of a chemical based fire extinguisher. It is depressurized and the nozzle is mostly missing. My question is, what could I do/make with the shell, whats left of the head, and the powder that was left(an altoids box's worth)? Thank you for your time and consideration.

Always had an interest in jewelry, specifically ring making, for a while. I've mixed and matched stones to settings a few years back with various success, but it's opened my eyes to how cheap good quality precious stones can be. I'd like to know how feasible it is to enter the craft from basically no experience, without formal education of it either. I'm an artist, so the designing isn't what needs to be learned, just the techniques and skills. The tools required is the other half of my question, and off the top of my head, I would need a ring mandrel, a flex shaft tool, a kiln, and various files,anything I'm missing? Obviously wax blanks. I'd like to work with primarily gold and silver, so I'm not sure what kiln would be most economical, as I don't even know what qualities other than max temp to look for.

Hello /diy/ I have a question that I've been un-successful at finding a complete answer. How do I figure out building material strengths for things like lumber? I'm new to building things and have recently build a few basic things out of stud 2x4, Bed, Table, Bar extension so I don't have experience to fall back on. I've done some digging online and in books but I can only seem to find answers for very exact set ups, Are there any good rules of thumb I should know? What about things like plywood or OSB? Are there any programs out there that let you simulate plans to see if they will be stable? I'm not even sure if theres anything else I should ask so I trust in you all, Things along that nature: How do I find information I need in somewhat simple-man terms? Thanks.

ghetto sculpture

26 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: elesio-sculpting.jpg]
I am poor. I live in a poor neighborhood, don't have a car, and there are no art stores and the like around me. I would like to get better at sculpting but this requires more/better tools and most importantly large amounts of some kind of sculpting medium so that I can practice. I come to you today asking for advice and tips on what to do. I have a lot of random tools and a rotary tool as well but I do not have tools made for carving or sculpting like a chisel set or anything like that and I can not find or afford a good one around where I live. I can not post what I have already done because I do not have a camera (not even on my phone).

Is there any opportunity for a neuroscience graduates to learn neurosurgery for their own personal interest, without wasting time with the excess in a medical degree first? Since it is hands on, the theory can be gotten, but it is not everyday that a body comes my way. What do people do in this sit? Do I just snuggle up with the anatomy department and take on hands on research projects and feel my way through?

Hey /diy/ Teacher-fag here. Much of the content i teach is shared with my classes with a projector. It is a NEC np200. The only button on the projector body turns it on and off. It came with a small remote (pictured) which controls all of the other functionality. A few weeks ago the freeze button started acting funny; not working all the time, etc. Eventually, it just quit working. All of the other buttons work fine. The freeze button is probably the most commonly used button because I can project information for the students and freeze it and take care of things I do not want them to see such as email or putting grades into the online grade book (which are confidential). So one day I got pissed and I cut the freeze button off of the remote. All of the buttons are just elevated parts of a skin, when you press it, it makes a connection on the printed board below. When I use something conductive like the metal end of a mechanical pencil, it still doesn't work. Needless to say, its pretty irritating that I cannot freeze the projector, and must turn it off and back on when I need to do something the students shouldn't see. I found a replacement on Amazon for $31, but I really don't want to spend that because all of the other buttons work and I doubt the school will pay for a replacement while that is the case. Do you guys have any ideas? Assume I am pretty handy. tl;dr - all buttons except one work - wat do?

I want my room to give off a somewhat cozy, library-ish vibe. A bit like a study den. I already have a lot of books, and I'm still working on my collection, and I have a lot of inherited art from my great grandparents on display. What else would /diy/ recommend?

RF Remote

6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: rfremote.png]
At work we use RF remotes to open the gate. I don't have one of these remotes because they have run out and are too tight to buy more. I am fed up with getting out and having to put the code in the gate. Is their a way to capture whatever these remotes send out and maybe use something like an arduino to transmit it?

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.

I would like to refinish this TV stand a darker color. I have some dark acrylic varnish that i bought with a bunch of other paints that i can use. Is it just a matter of sanding the current finish then applying the new varnish, or is there more involved?
