I'm bored. Could you help me with a fog machine?
I'll post one picture, but if you require more, just ask for them.
So its a 5-6 year old fog machine I got off my friend.
I dissasembled it, cleaned the pump, pipes and all those little parts. Filled it with industrial distilled water and vinegar, and the pump is working fine, just tested it.
The problem must be with the heating element.
Any tips on how to get that cleaned up?
Picture is the backside of the heating element.
Sure, a new one would set me back about 30 bucks (although I use euros), but its not about the money.

My mother purchased a 15,000 BTU AC Window Unit today to try to cool off the kitchen and family room. My brother and I agreed to install it, which we did. When I went to plug it in, I noticed it was the wrong plug type (U.S. here). I checked the unit and it's a 230v unit at 60 hz. From what I read these are meant for 230v outlet, kind of like what you have for your washer and dryer.
She got an amazing deal on the thing (like 200 bucks cheaper than what it normally would be), and would hate to lose this deal. So I'm wondering from you guys is:
a) Are there any adapters that would allow it to work off a 120v US plug (I highly doubt this, but I'm making the assumption based off of my simple knowledge of basic electricity).
b) How expensive in USD do you think it would average to have an electrician install a 230v plug near the AC unit. Is it possible for them to convert a outlet already there to 230v? (if they could, maybe cheaper?)
>Pic. somewhat related. It's not our ac window unit, but it is an ac window unit.

So, this is essentially a preliminary inquiry. I want to make a gunlance, just to say I did. Issue being, I have no idea how to use metallurgy to build the casing. I've been told to use tungsten alloy, at the least. I'm also aware of how to build a railgun. I just need to make it small enough to fit in the casing and and have the casing be sturdy enough to strike without breaking due to being hollow inside. So.. Advice, DIY?
Not sure if this violates the "No weapons" thing, but I'm not sure that /k/ would be able to help with what I want. Thanks, /diy/

So for this summer I plan on having a garden. I have a few ideas on what to grow and what to do. I've never gardened so I don't know much other than the simple stuff. My parents shop at China town weekly and one thing they buy are whole fishes.
My question is how do I turn the left over pieces, bones and head, into fertilizers. So far my plan is to ground up the fish bones and heads into a course grind, add it into a bucket with brown sugar and soil. Research says to use saw dust but i think soil is fine since its going to be in soil anyways.
Tips and suggestions on gardening, what veggies, and DIY stuff are welcomed. Also, if anyone wants to show their previous gardens that would be awesome.
