Hanging bikes

15 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: IMG_2841.jpg]
I have a steel frame bicycle about 25 pounds. Still saving up for a lighter frame. Back to the point, Im tired of having to lean my bike next to my bed so I want to hang it in the wall. Shit is Im on a budget so I dont want to buy a stud finder and only use it once. I've googled but it doesn't really answer my question. TL;DR I want to hang my 25 pound bicycle frame on the wall with two hangers. Could I use regular wall plugs or do I have to find the stud? Keep in mind we have hanged a pretty heavy tv on the wall.

Let's all talk about bird feeders. Do you like hanging bird feeders, static, metal, wood etc.? Have you ever made your own bird feeder? What would be the best wood?

Sup /diy/ Got a topic to discuss that I don't see around here too much: Working glass. I'm looking into this for the purposes of "flint" knapping. I live in an area where quality stone is difficult to find, but I have a ton of glass bottles. I've been using the bottoms of them for making arrowheads, but it's a lot of work for a small amount of material with lots of leftovers What I want to do is melt the remainder of the bottles down and pour them into some sort of mold so that I can flake them into arrowheads and other things. Anyone here have experience with that sort of thing? I'm looking for info online and some books too, but I thought I might get some supplemental info from you fellas/ladies. What concerns me is mixing the glass from different types of bottles etc. Are there other things I should be watching out for?

How to extend battery life?

Hey /diy/, simple(?) question. I've got an old two-AA-battery-powered mp3 player but naturally it can play music only for so long until the batteries run out. Can I somehow combine like a a billion batteries so it plays forever? Or at least for weeks? What would I need? Would it be feasible? i drew a shitty diagram of how i see it in my head. something like this? i dunno

Soldering irons. What issues am I going to run in to from buying a $3 soldering iron from China off eBay? Why does the page mention to "never file off the specially plated tip"? I quite like the idea of being able to clean it up easily by filing/using abrasive materials, so this bothers me a bit. Is 60w going to be too much for arduino-centric stuff? I had a temperature controlled soldering iron that stopped working, but honestly I never touched the control and just left it at max. Generally speaking, will I be able to buy any old tip off eBay and have it fit in to the soldering iron? What tips are recommended?

I have recently been trying to use my old USB energy dance pad to play stepmania. I plug the thing in and "device not recognised". So I go to google and begin my search. I try a few things, but nothing seems to work. So I download a program to get me the USB product and Vendor ID's of the device. They are not posting with either LIBUSB or USBVIEW. So I got tired of that and bought a PS2 to USB adapter, figuring it had to do something with the actual usb connector(This pad has ps2/xbox/USB connectors). The adapter itself is detected by windwos and appears to work. The driver installs properly. When I plug the dance pad into it, it makes the windows USB connecting/disconnecting sound over and over, sometimes with 30 seconds or so between the sounds. I go into device manager>USB>USB root hub>properties>power management and uncheck the box that would allow windows to power down the device. Sound still happens. The pad is a few years old, but I don't have a lot of money and am hoping to repair it/get it to work somehow. Pic related, It's the Dance Pad's board.

Any machinists about? I'm looking at getting a milling machine and don't have a couple grand to blow so was looking at mini mills under around £600. At first I was looking at something like the XJ12-300 (£490) but then I came across the Proxxon MF70 which is a bit cheaper at around £270 and then I was going to get one of Proxxon's dividing heads for another £100. Now the table size isn't a huge concern as I wouldn't be making anything very large and with the smaller dividing head don't have to worry about not being able to fit a full size one, but I notice the MF70 is limited to a 3.2mm tool shaft diameter and 5000rpm minimum. Now it wouldn't be too hard to make an adapter or change the chuck so it can accept larger cutters (unless they make larger ones with such small shanks?) but would 5000rpm be too fast? Also any general recommendations?

Thanks In Advance

/mu/tant here, 100% new to any kind of electronics/wiring, so I'm looking for some help. The past few days I've been working on electrifying my acoustic guitar (pic related). I've got it set up with just a a piezo right now, and I want to add a magnetic pickup in the soundhole. I've got the piezo attached to its own cable and at the moment I have the pickup attached directly to a jack, but I want them both running through the same cable. Is there any special component I need to direct them both to the amp or can I just stick the wires of the piezo and the wires of the pickup both to the wires in the cable and have it work? Sorry if any of that was unclear, ask if you need clarification. If you try to explain any of this to me, try to keep anything electronics-related simple but feel free to get complex if it's related to the sound itself. I know about one but not the other.

No matter what I do, or how many cool projects I see, I just can't build up the inspiration to buy materials or start tinkering with stuff. How do you get yourself to be productive?

I want to build a faraday cage around my bed, similar to pic related. I have wood and although I'm no carpenter I'm sure I can bang something together with a few nails So my question is, what material do I need to use over the frame? I am primarily trying to block mobile phone and wi-fi radiation Now before anyone starts arguing over the point of blocking radiation, let me say that I have schizophrenia and no logical arguments will dissuade my crazy beliefs

hey guys i was helping these people move their grandparents stuff out of their house and in teh shed i came across all these old tools, and got almost an instant boner, the owner saw how infatuated i was with them and gave them to me , I know how to use most of them but i was a question about the one on the bottom right, it seems to be made of aluminium

Hi /diy/ this is meant to be a quick question. I want to create an aluminium-copper battery, in order to do it I'll cut some circles of both materials and insert them into a plastic canister, the circles will be separated by a piece of cardboard or cotton soaked with a mix of vinegar and salt and the ends will be attached to positive and negative cables? Ideally it will be able to power a small LED some months. Will this work? There's any way of improving its performance? I would use zinc but I don't have any. >Picrelated is the canister I'll be using.

PC case

23 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: stage3.jpg]
I'm going to build a PC case from scratch. I plan to build it out of MDF (wood composite material). I prefer this over acrilic, since a) my priority is not aesthetics, but airflow and silence; and b) it's an easier material to work with. I have a huge variety of tools, so that will not be an issue. My plan is to build an unusually large case with an unusual distribution of elements and amazing airflow. The front will have two or three 5 inch bays, for DVD drives and whatnot. The motherboard will be halfway through the case, I/O panel side up, so airflow is vertical and the connections are on the top side. The psu will be under it. Way in the back will be all the hard drives (6) aligned in two sideways vertical rows. The underside will have a tunnel with an opening in the front and three size 12 fan openings on the ceiling, two for the motherboard area and one for the hard-drives. This tunnel will act as a massive cold air intake. I need help aquiring dimensions and size details. Apparently there used to be a site entirelly dedicated to PC format standards and schematics, but it's down. Also, tips and suggestions are most welcome.

Hi guys, I have a can like this I want to cut a straight line through; that is, so it would have a flat edge if it were standing on its side. I will remove the lid and cut down tangent to the circle where the ends of the line are, for ease... what tool do I use? A hacksaw will take long and I am a tired of using one as I have been for a lot of projects lately. Any big power saw i.e. a miter is clumsy and I wouldn't know how to apply one for this purpose. Don't have an Oxy Acetelene torch and it would be overkill/not precise. Any sort of hand held power cutting tool you can recommend? Thanks.

What kind of microcontroller would I need if I'm building an autonomous quadruped robot with two 24v brushless DC motors (linkage mechanism) and two sensors? The motors will run on 12v acid batteries in series. I got old PC parts if that could work. Motherboard,CPU, video card and sound card

Where do you source your materials, /diy/? One of my biggest hindrances to all projects has been a lack of transportation (I live with my parents and they travel frequently). As a result, I'm unable to obtain even simple items like coffee cans. So where do you source your material, /diy/? My brainstorming has result in this list: >Neighbors >Local Businesses >Family member's workplaces (I have a lot of people who work in food service, lots of packaging, coffee grounds, feedstocks, etc) Unfortunately, none of these venues are open at 5 in the morning... Pic related - This would be a logistical nightmare for me.

Hey /diy/, don't come on here much but need a bit of help with something. I'm wanting to sand my guitar's paint coat off for a more natural wood finish but I don't know what to sand it with. I have no access to industrial sanders or anything like that but I'm heading out into town and know a few places to pick up some sand paper and stuff. I know that there's all different types of sand paper and I know you need to go through a few processes but have no knowledge of it what so ever. Just wondering the absolute basics and what I need to get, thanks.
