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.

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.

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.

Is there any magical device that let me flip these switches remotely? Or if someone has a cool idea how to solve the problem I'm all ears.

HL2 Costume build

Hello, /diy/! Thinking about building an HEV suit from HL2 as a costume. I'm guessing cardboard would be the best option but I'm not experienced here. Any help is appreciated.

Hey, /diy/, do any of you have any experiences with building beds? I'm currently sleeping on a shitty old day bed I got from a family member, and it's just not comfortable. I want to build something more to my tastes, and have a few designs kicking around my apartment. It'll be wood for the most part, but I want to avoid using a box frame if I can, since I'm trying to keep it relatively low to the ground while still remaining a decent distance above the floor (I store crap under my bed). Any tips/suggestions/etc.?

Refinishing old Bed Frame

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ESR72_3_R.jpg]
Hey guys. For the last WEEK or so I've been stripping finish and stain off an old bed frame with just sandpaper. I was going to buy some sort of stripping agent, but the guy at the store said sandpaper would be fine. I mentioned this to my grandma, one week into the hateful process of doing it all by hand, and she laughed at me. Apparently I really should have used a kind of stripper. Well at this point, most of it is off down to the wood but I'm thinking of buying THIS stripper to finish the project. http://www.wmbarr.com/product.aspx?catid=72&prodid=112 I've been warned against cheap strippers that have paraffin, do you think this would be a good product to use? Or do you guys have suggestions for what kind of varnish and stain strippers to use?

I do a lot of multi-day ski expeditions in the winter (pic related, but deeper snow) and I have a crazy carpet I want to turn into a pulk (pic related.) I'm having trouble finding a way to get the front shaped the way I'd like. If you just pull the front up and fold it back, the pulk acts like a knife blade when dealing with deeper snow. What I'd like is to have the front slope up, so it compacts the snow as it's pulled. What are your thoughts? Any origami specialists who want t take a crack at this?

I was unfortunate some time ago and left some of my fishing gear out in the rain for a long period of time. Some of the fishing lures developed quite a lot of rust on them and I'd like to try and remove it somehow. The picture is related, these got pretty minor damage, but I have others with significantly more rust. Are there any household items I can use for this? I'd like to stay away from possible toxic chemicals if possible.

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.

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

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?

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.

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?

Making Statues

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: bunny and horse statue.jpg]
I'd like to make a large, weird custom statue. Having no skills in stone carving nor metal working, I'd need a new, cheap method for making a preposterously large ornament. For models, papercrafts seem like the easiest way to turn 3d models into real 3d objects. Would it be possible to harden a paper model with cement or something, and then sand off the rough edges? Suggestions are welcome.
