My phone is stuck behind a radiator. And I can't get to it. Apart from removing the radiator from the wall (which I can't do), how can I get it out? I've tried lifting it, and now one end is stuck under a bolt, so I can only get to it from one side. Please help me, /diy/. You're my only hope.

So, next semester, my living arrangements are on the opposite side of the galaxy from where I have 90% of my classes. Engineering student's solution? Why, build an electric bicycle, of course! But I need some help choosing a battery, among other things. So my basic plan is to have a DC motor from an old treadmill mounted above the rear wheel, connected by belt or chain directly to the rear wheel, perhaps with a clutch depending on the open-circuit friction of the motor. On the handlebars I'll have a little control panel, with a switch to select "go", "coast", and "charge" modes. In coast mode, the motor will have no load so I can just pedal the bike. If it turns out that the motor is hard to turn in this condition, I'll put in a clutch. In "charge" mode, the motor will act as a generator to charge the battery through a voltage regulator that uses a boost-converter/buck-converter to ensure that it charges OK. See, it's uphill on the way to my classes and downhill on the way back. So I could reclaim a bit of that energy. And of course, in GO mode the motor's speed is controlled by a PWM circuit which I suppose is the best way to control a DC motor. So, battery. Obvious first thought is a deep-cycle lead-acid battery. But it's quite heavy and discharging it too far can ruin it. Ultracapacitors? They're coming down in price, but still, cost per joule I think would be prohibitive. A lot of these bikes seem to use lithium-polymer, which is crazy expensive. I do have access to a pile of scrapped UPS's, I don't know if they were scrapped due to battery failure or what, but I think they're gel-cell batteries. Ideally the battery pack would be small enough to comfortably carry inside and charge. So, what do you think? Advice, precautions, recommendations, links to good resources? Pic only loosely related: Looks pretty weak sauce.

drilling into spackling paste filled hole?

So I just bought myself a towel bar for the bathroom. I want to put it exactly where my old one was, but there's a large hole on the right, exactly where i want to place it. My question is, can I fill that hole with Spackling Paste (CrackShot brand) and then wait for it to try and then work from there? Or is it advisable to just place the towel bar lower than my old positioning due to the holes?

I want to make that tri laser thing from predator, and I think I got everything I need. But I'm not sure what the best way to run the circuit would be. The lasers are each 3wDC lasers, and I'm thinking of powering it with one 9v battery. Would it be a good idea to run the wires like pic related? Or should I try to have it run in such a way as where the first laser won't get the full 9v?

Recently hired cable technician here. Could you recommend me a good knife for work? I already keep a Leatherman on me, but I'm looking for something with a longer and more sturdy blade.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lh_dGts6TeQ Would this PC build be able to run GW2 on maximum settings consistently? I want to build my own PC but I'm going in to this bereft of knowledge on the subject. I've also been looking at this guide: http://www.logicalincrements.com/ Basically looking for build suggestions and advice on actually building a PC.

Looking to paint my moped. I was wanting to paint it a cherry red color. Would it be worth to money to have it powder coated? Or just to rattle can paint it with primer? Never have messed with much painting.

Okay, here is the deal. I want to replace the lettering on my Game Boy. Specifically, the black Play It Loud! model (picture related) I've researched a bit and while I think I can get the right paint to use (enamel paint, brushed on), I have no idea how to obtain/make a stencil, or otherwise paint the lettering I want onto the plastic. I tried making one by printing out the lettering I want and hand-cutting it, but it turned out terrible. The font I wish to use is Hammerfat. So, can I get a little help, /diy/? If you're curious as to why I want to do this, this thing is intended for live chiptune sets, and it's fun playing LSDJ sets with a customized DMG.

Hey /DIY/ this is my first post. i want to make a beer vending machine. I have an old fridge that i would like to convert into a keg cooler. i understand how to do it and where to get the supplies but i only have a rough idea of how to dispense it. where would i get one of those paper money takers that you see on all vending machines and how would i wire it to some sort of valve that would open and close for a certain amount of time when ever a dollar is inserted.

DIY Cigarettes

>Pound of pipe tobacco - $15-$20 >Carton of cigarettes - $3.50 >Cigarette machine - $10-50 The amount of money you can save by making your own cigarettes is fucking astronomical. Each pound of tobacco makes about 3 cartons, which means the price per pack is usually around $0.60-$1.50 Stop giving all your money to Phillip Morris

Hey there /diy/. I'm not a native to these parts, but I come seeking your wisdom. Long story short, managed to bust one of these on accident today, with help from some female company. It's at my place of business, and I'd really like to repair it without the owner finding out. The sink itself isn't damaged. The caulking that was holding it the wall is torn off, but I don't see any damage to the wall. There's also a metal bracket on the bottom of the sink that was supporting the weight. That's now bent outward, allowing the sink to loll forward. Without the caulking or the bracket properly holding it it won't stay up unsupported (left it for the night with a table propping it up). Is this something I can take care of myself? I'm not familiar with a caulking gun but I'm pretty good at learning-by-doing.

Would it be theoretically possible to create an automatic/semi-automatic spring powered Nerf or airsoft toy? cigar box guitar unrelated, but we can talk about them too I guess.

Baking Enamel Spraypaint

I'm refinishing a rifle, and painted it with rustoleum flat enamel about 2 hours ago. Still drying. Would the paint benefit from baking? I baked the freshly painted trigger group and the parts came out beautifully finished. Also, is it safe to cook food in the oven after baking the enamel? pic slightly related, im painting a kebab remover

I fucked up. I have two options. A) Buy a bigger cat door and redo it with a better saw. B) Make my own cat door. I want to go with option B so I don't have to make the hole any bigger than it is because my cats are using it now and it's a good size. Plus I want to have a little fun with it. Tips? Guides? Warnings? Insults?

Hey /diy/ I just built a custom bed frame for my girlfriend and she wants the exterior to "feel like Ikea furniture" I ended up using it out of some spare oak that I had and spent a few days sanding the everloving FUCK out of it and jesus christ it was smooooooth,but it doesn't have that "Ikea" feel to it. What's the thin sheet of material that Ikea places over their plywood furniture? and where can I get sheets/strips of it? I've also seen some of it being used in Restaurant Impossible and Kitchen Nightmares during the revamp of the restaurants thanks
