hey guys, so im very into the whole pc case modding/ scratch building comunity, always on the mod zoo and all that shit, and ive been designing this mini itx case for a lil while. ive decided im going to make it over the summer, and i need to bend sheet metal (most likely 1mm thick stainless steel) in multiple places 45 degrees, whats the best way of doing this without machinery?

Spot Welder Flux? I've been experimenting with some MOT spot welders and I was wondering. Could you use a flux to help the weld? Like prevent oxygen from getting to the weld like you do for arc welding or shield gases for TIG/MIG? If so, what type of flux would be good? All I have right now is zinc chloride paste for sweating pipes.
Here's the latest one I've been experimenting with. I just finished making some tip holders and have been stress testing them. They are made from some scrap 1" copper water pipe, a piece of scrap 1/4"/20 bolt from another project, and 4AWG solid grounding wire as the tip. I have a tap and die set so I used that to tap hole for the bolt to go through. I used a Dremel to chop up the bolt and slot it for a flathead screw driver. The main cabling is 2AWG flexible welding cable.
There's some serious heat in the tips. I'll do some more experimenting with this setup and if I like it I might add some heat sinks just past the tips to aid a quicker in cool down. Everything else has been cool as a cucumber.

Hi guys, how would I go about replacing a broken audio jack on a laptop?
As you can see, the whole jack has fallen out. I don't really know what's broken inside, but I'm guessing it's only the plastic circular part. I've been using the audio adapter (in the pic), but it sounds god awful.
I haven't had much luck with google, but apparently it all depends on how the audio port is soldered onto the motherboard. How in the hell would I find that out?
Basically, it would be awesome if I could get a guide by one of you awesome people.
My laptop is a Samsung r580.

so /diy/ldoes, i got this turtle beach x12 headphones that started popping with the beat of a song, when i lowered down the bass to 0 it didn't made that sound even tho i had to turn down the volume, but today they stopped working at all, i'm thinking it is because of no connection with the usb, i'm thinking of removing the headphones amp (the thingy on the left) and getting or building my own amp what do you think guises
