Does anyone here knows how to make good ink for a graffiti marker? I know some recipe's and tried my own recipes. I was thinking to try this: Dot-3 brake fluid, rubing alcohol, pen ink and charcoal dust. Will that be any good?

HELP So the left hinge on my laptop was loose and I took it apart to see if I just needed a new hinge or what. But its worse case scenario. Maybe. The screws for the hinge have sheared through all of the plastic that was supposed to hold it in place. I thought before I opened it that maybe super glue would work but Im skeptical now as it doesnt look like theres anything to glue it to besides the back. Im wondering if guerilla glue would work as I heard it expands and is thicker than super glue. Also that super glue doesnt have strong shear strength. Another option would be to find an epoxy but Ive never used it and am not certain its needed in this situation.

Hi /diy/, I have just took my graduation in electronic and telecommunications, and I'd like to test my skills building a theremin in the cheapest way. After I had this great idea, I realized that I'm not so good at inventing, so I was wondering if someone have a schematic and a PCB or a master of the necessary circuits, and some tip to share with a bro. Thanks

Hey /diy/ I fucked up and I could really use some help as I might be in deep shit here. I was paid to creasote a fence using a sprayer, and some tiny bits of the spray got on someones car and patio and they need it removed, Is there any way to remove Creasote from a patio and a plastic car body without damaging either. I may have to get the car professionally cleaned, does anyone know what that type of service costs in the UK. I am really screwed.

Hey /diy/ Has anyone had any luck selling handmade stuff on etsy and the sort? I'm thinking of ways to make a little extra money doing the stuff I love and selling handmade/vintage stuff on Etsy or at farmers markets sounds too good to be true

RC mowers

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 53476037-6272-4950-80b2-d1a1da8a88e4_300.jpg]
So I have a self-propelled mower that I want to use, a servo to pull the power wire will do fine for the propulsion(the lever on the handle has a wire that when pulled makes the front wheel drive move forward). Since it is front wheel drive I'm thinking of putting the batteries and control systems on the front with just the steering rack in the back, more weight in the front means the wheels will get better traction. I don't plan on modifying the motor/ bed much. The remote controls and steering system is all I'm adding and they will be separate systems from the motor and propulsion. So what is the best way to go about turning it? Is there such a thing as servo motors big enough to turn a steering rack for the rear wheels, and could it be simply powered by something like a car battery? What about a pneumatic turning system, would that be easy to do? My main concerns here is spending minimal money on this and having it be not too complicated. I already have a remote control for it, and I can build some simple power relays and control circuits for it. So does any /diy/nosaur have experience with RC mowers? Or better yet know how I could make a simple turning system for this? Tl;Dr Making an RC mower but don't know best way to make turning system. Again, I plan on using the self-propelled part of the mower for its propulsion; so the steering has to be separate from the propulsion system. Picture related, it's the mower I'm modding.

Good, cheap, robotics parts?

DIY Pop'n Music Controller

Hi /diy/, DIY NOOB here and I'm facing a problem with the custom PCB that I've been recommended from an anon. >http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-ZD-USB-Encoder-PS2-PS3-PC-Joystick-MAME-Arcade-Fight-Stick-Control-/171017583391?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27d1713b1f I connect it according to the image described and when I connect to the computer or the PS2. It doesn't read anything I press nor it will read the device. But the white LED light is on. So I don't know whats the problem. Is it the PCB or the way I solder it by using the electric tape is wrong. I taped it between the exposed wire and directly stick it to the spade terminal [image related].

Hi /diy/ I've made this sign with acrylic sheets and glass blown the logo to make it light up, but they need to light individually, so i separated the letters. The downside of this is that you can see the lines between the letters, so i was wandering if you had some ideas to make this prettier? It doesn't need to be like this. If you have other ideas to make it look like something from the future, it would be great!

DIY Mario Bross w/ music incorported

Well, hello there, I was planning making a Mario (N64) for my Modelation and Representation class. And I was wondering if it was possible to put in her back or something (like some music incorporated teddy bears) a music box wich plays Mario Brothers music (I hope you know what I'm talking about). There is any way to create a music box (like the one who have the talking toys or teddy bears) with customized music? I mean, I am not en engeenier or anything related to that, just a IT Guy (lol). So, any chances to create or easily made what I am talking about? Pic realated, that was an early stage of the Mario.

heya /diy/ Been tasked with trying to make a wallet out of leather remnants/samples from an upholstery/furniture factory. Friend works there, gets to take home scraps. These aren't thick pieces. They are almost as thin as paper. Not the best material. But it's what I got for a small fun project. Can it be done? What should I do to reinforce the shape of the wallet so it flop around too much? Pic related. it's what I'm working with. Also, any good patterns?

I want to paint my 3DS XL to be white and black instead of red and black. The intent is to leave it with less 'shiny' finish (not that it's that shiny as is) and also to apply a vinyl decal. Because I am conflicted about decasing the hardware and then painting the case, I intend to try doing it while the device is still put together. Thus I have this plan ready: 1. Sand down red parts with extra-fine sandpaper (I'll be using 800 grain) 2. use scotch blue painter's tape to cover up all black parts that should remain unpainted 2a. cover electronic ports, lights, camera lenses, etc. that could get paint on/in them 2b. apply tape very carefully around edge or red space to paint so that I can get a very sharp paint line as on the original paint job and not leave any red behind/obscure any black paint 3. use Krylon Fusion Flat White paint on the red part of the shell to be painted 3a. Repeat for the bottom battery cover (which is easily removed and thus not as big of an issue) 4. let sit and dry 5. apply decal to dried white surface 6. apply Krylon Fusion Matte Finish to newly painted surfaces 7. let dry Are there any bad points in my plan, or anything I missed that needs to be addressed? Thanks for the assistance. Pic related, what I'm going for is the top but with white instead of grey.

Trebuchet pt 2

3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Three-Quarter inch PVC - All Parts (...).jpg]
Hello again, /diy/. It's OP from the trebuchet post >>470847 . I'm running into some brick walls with the materials I have. I'm using 3/4 white PVC for the frame, 2ft high with a 28" support pipe on either side of both uprights, for a total of four support pipes. For the actual throwing arm, I'm using a 6 ft wooden railing beam, it's about 1.5" in diameter. The problems I'm running in to, however, are that I'm having trouble figuring the best way to secure the PVC to the wooden base, and the best material to use for the axle of the throwing arm. The weight I'm going to be using is 2 chainz, each approximately 20 lbs, so I'll need something able to at least hold up 50 lbs without bending, and it also has to be less than 3/4 in diameter. I was thinking a steel rod would serve the best? Also, are 6 3/4" pipes even able to hold up ~50lbs, or am I fucked from the get go? <pic related only because polyvinyl chloride

Has anyone ever ordered from McMaster Carr here? How much do they normally charge for shipping? I ordered a few small parts last night and the order shipped, though there is no charge on my debit card.
