I need to solder a wire to an Alligator clip, but no matter what I do the solder just won't stick. Yes. I'm heating it up enough. Anyone know why I might be having this problem?

I generally don't run to /diy/ just to ask how to do something but I'm having a really hard time finding good instructions elsewhere. How do you stain an already assembled project? I've search for videos demonstrating how to stain wood, but usually they just stain a single, flat plank of wood and that's it. But that's not enough. What about staining a project where you have many sides, grooves, and corners to worry about? I've tried this once already with paint-on stain and I just couldn't completely wipe away the excess stain along inside corners because the rag wrapped around my fat fingers couldn't make contact with the area where the two surfaces meet and form a 90 degree angle. Do you have to stain the whole object in one go? As in, cover the whole thing in stain, then wipe off the excess? Because that's what I was doing once and it got retarded because in order to wipe all the sides off, I have to pick it up to turn/flip it, which gets wet stain on my gloves, which touches other parts of the project unintentionally smudges more stain unevenly. If it helps, the wood in question is oak. Videos would help if you know of any. Pic related, it's a pencil box I'm working on, and going to stain it once I'm confident that I won't fuck it up like the others.

DIY sheathe

More like an FYI/DIY as I see most ask help I am more giving help. Made this sheathe for my 28" machete. Used a long piece of PVC from my local Hardware store, some Chicago screws and my rotary tool.

What's the best way to do away with ants? I never see them anywhere unless they're inside of my garbage can, which is convenient until I see them again 3 weeks later.

Been looking at getting into basic (ghetto) blacksmithing for a while now. Not going to be hammering chunks of steel into swords but heat treating/ tempering metals is a must. This (pic) is my fireplace, when I give it good fuel it can get wickedly hot and it's enclosed, keeps the heat in and makes a lot of embers. My question to you /diy/ers is how can I make the flames hotter without drilling a hole in the back/side for an air intake? It's thick ceramic and I don't think it would be able to take a hole being drilled in it. I'm probably wrong, but I really don't want to have to make a hole in it. Also, any good tips for quenching oil?

Sup /diy/, I've recently bought a nexus 7 with a a cracked screen, thinking I could just replace the digitizer. Unfortunately though it is glued to the lcd and there is no chance of separating them. The crack itself doesn't bother me, but the fact that I can only use one half of the digitizer does. Is there another way of fixing this? I thought about pouring conductive silver lacquer in the crack. Would this work?

does more voltage really mean more power in a cordless drill? if so then how come there are drills that have the same voltage as each other but one can still deliver more torque than the other?

So I've taken apart a microwave and revived the following from my labor: >Heating Tubes >Some Safety switches >Thermal fuses >A bell and some timers >A Power relay and lightbulb >The turntables motor >The cooling fan >A line filter >A capacitor and diode >A high voltage transformer >A magnetron So /diy/nosaurs, what could I use these components for other than a microwave?

My room is hot as fuck. No matter what, my room is always 12-15 degrees hotter than the rest of the house and I'm sick of it. I'm not really sure if it's always been this way, but I have a feeling its due to my desktop being in here and on 24/7. I've had this desktop in here for 7-10 years, so I can't even remember if it's always had a heat issue or not. My original plan was just to get a window AC to solve the problem, but after thinking about it I've decided that will be the last resort option. For now, I want to look into repairing the issue instead of bandaiding it, hopefully i can repair the issue without adding another item to run up my electric bill. So, my desktop is 2-3 feet away from a window. The window is a 7 ft tall window that nearly reaches the ground (the bottom of it is 1/2 - 1ft off the floor) My idea: Create an exhaust that can clip onto the back of a computer's 120mm fan exhaust, use tubing of some type to run over to the bottom of the window, make a "window box" that the other end of the tube feeds into, which will basically be a hollow rectangle with mesh netting on the outside so bugs etc don't get in. My question(s): -Are their any technicalities that I havent thought of below? -hot air rises, the exhaust for my computer is higher than the ledge on the window seal where the "window box" would sit, how would I mitigate this issue? I was thinking I might install computer fans strategically through the tubing and run the wiring into my computer. This would use a bit more electricity but I don't think it'd be a huge issue. -how effective would this be? I assume it would depend on the intake/outtake design of my computer case? Right now I have 2x exhausts but I'll change it to only have one (it's a custom built machine so this is easy) anyone ever try anything like this? thoughts? ideas?

refilling CO2 canister with dry ice

Does this look reasonably safe? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWcRDMAA8RE I have one of these and spending $15 at best buy or whatever just to refill a little bit of CO2 always seemed a ripoff. The comments seem to say that you're fine as long as you fill it less than half full and even if you fuck up it'll just slip the little washer out and vent the gas, but I am still not entirely convinced. And yeah I know you can use paintball canisters instead with an adapter but I think this solution is better if it doesn't blow up your thing because I have doubts about the paintball CO2 being food grade while the dry ice CO2 is.

Is there a way to reduce computer psu noise (without buying a new one)? Manufacturers usually tune voltages, fan speeds etc. a little bit higher that they actually need to be, "just to be sure". For example, my stock cooler was set to ~3000rpm (what a horrible noise), and by recuding that to 1000rpm with SpeedFan the noise became neglible. Temperatures rose from 45ºC to 55º, which is indifferent in my case (pardon the pun). Can I just make the same trick to my psu? 1. Open the psu enclosure (warranty is long gone) 2. Add a pot in series with the fan 3. Profit? Of couse temperatures needs to be monitored, but is this generally a bad idea?

Need Mat

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Untitled.png]
Hi, we're considering purchasing a rubber mat for our Frozen Yogurt floor as there's a vinyl gap to be covered. The mat will have (roughly pictured) on there. It will set us back $550. Is there anything we can do to cheapen the cost without making it look bad? I was thinking of printing a large version of it then using some sort of waterproofing plastic? Dimensions 3.8metres x 81cm (150inches x 31in)

I've got a compost pile and today's its 4th day. It hasn't heated up much. - 50/50 carbon/nitrogen by mass of ingredients - contains grass clippings, straw, and dead leaves - was watered and thoroughly shredded/mixed on first day - bin has holes in the bottom for drainage but is covered on the sides and top - it's a bit over 2 cubic ft - I made some holes in the compost pile with a stick; mold that looks like spider webs is growing here (sorry I don't know the name) where did I go wrong? I feel like its because the top is closed. Thanks
