Hi everyone. What would be the best type of rope to use for replacing the starter pull cord on an old lawnmower. I tried some, I think polypro, clothesline and it wore out. (The mower's carb is messed up by the alcohol they add to the gas so it stalls out a lot.) I tried some old cotton clothesline but it broke the third time I started it. Does anyone know, is polyester cord or nylon cord better? Or something else? I hate to buy a replacement starter rope for lawn mowers. It seems like a fortune for such a short piece of rope.

Hey /diy/ I'm working on a beer pong table for my new house and I'm stuck. I'm trying to make two cut out figures in plexiglass/acrylic/liquid glass that would go underneath the plexiglass top. I could use some help deciding on the right material and how to cut out the figures. pic related: I need the exact opposite of what's done on this table. I need the cut out peices from that table basically.

Battle laser

Ok, I took a laser diode from an old NEC drive (CD\DVD burning), chink pointer, wires and other needed things. Gave it all to a friend of mine to make a battle laser. The result didn't cheer us. It worked fine, the shaft was a lot brighter but it neither burnt a thing nor intended to. What did we do wrong? The maker himself said the diode was too old.

Replacing a 9v battery with a solar panel.

I am assembling a diy radio kit and it uses a 9V battery. I would like to use a solar panel instead. I have noticed at RadioShack they have 9V solar panels, however, they have different ratings on wattage. what wattage would I need, or does it matter, to replace the 9V battery?

Has anyone ever thought of running a vehicle on pedal power alone? I know there are a buttfuck load of cons about this, but if made cheap enough, massive amounts of profits are to be made. For example, Instead of using an engine and working transmission (That shits too easy), why can i not just work a series of pulleys to move wheels and a simple steering column to control direction. This sounds stupid as hell, but as i said, money is to be made somehow. I remember in like grade 4 seeing how pulleys and a long rope would make things easy to lift, but if would could somehow make that lift force into a pushing force, we could easily slap some wheels on and move like 5km/h because of the weight of yourself and vehicle, not accounting for how tired you would be after 10 pushes. Thats talking really small scale. You can put a small gear to work a really large wheel and execute massive amounts of power through some shitty pulley system, no? Obviously im not going to get into everything else that a vehicle has to offer because thats beyond my limited knowledge. Any thoughts /diy/ers?

Hey guys, I build guitars and I use a Dewalt DW621 router for body cavity routing. The screws on my base plate got stripped, so now I can't attach the base plate and can't do template routing. I tried looking for helicoils in the right size (9/64 in) but i can't find one. I really don't want to have to buy a new router. Any ideas?

I'm thinking I want a board 7'x9' to make a bed. I've never shopped for lumber, so I'm wondering if it will be a hassle. Lowe's has wood, but the pieces don't line up so I might have to trim them?

The Collector mask

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: collectormask.jpg]
Hi everybody, first post here and english is not my native language... don't be too hard with me please... So, basically, I would like to craft a mask like the one in the movie "The Collector" (see pic related). It doesn't look like leather, more like some treated/solidified fabric but I'm not sure about this. Can any of you have some tips/tricks to help me in my project ? I can get any type of tools, budget is not important and I got basic skills when it comes to craft stuff. I was thinking : using a black "robber" mask as a base (and for comfort while wearing it) then glue the fabric over it and use some fixing products to solidifies but ... well ... some aspects of the project are unsure (face adaptation, how-to put it on/off without damaging, frictions around eyes/lips, ...) tl;dr : trying to make pic related, need tips/advices

hey /diy/ planning on patenting and selling something I am working on, so I was wondering if any of you knew some place that I could get a prototype done professionally for presentation purposes etc. It's nothing big, in all actuality it's fairly small. would need some plastic molding done, minor electrical (lightbulb/watch batteries) kinda setup, and some metal/spring setup. I mean don't want to go and outright tell you all what it is cus well trying to get this ball rolling myself and it is the internet. tldr: doing a small project where can I get a single professional prototype made?

I have an aquarium idea, my last 2 generations of triops died because of bacterial bloom. when the triops were gone I put about 50 daphnia in the tank. the bacteria were gone within 3 days. So my idea is, can I compartmentalize the tank, separating it in two using a net. So the daphnia would keep the water clean and not be eaten by the triops. could it work? or why not?

Electronics Hardware Troubleshooting

I believe I popped the circuit somewhere and I want to diagnose where the "leak" is... The hardware seems to have current to make the meters move but not enough to make the rest of the lights functional.

Hi /DIY/-hards, I am planning to mint a bunch of copper coins for a LARP and I'm trying to think of an easy way to cut 20mm-30mm blank disks from 2mm-3.5mm copper sheets, and leave them with a decentish looking edge. A press maybe? I'm not sure if a punch will work properly as it will need to do a lot of cutting. Once I have the coin blanks I'm going to hammer the design on them using 2 hardened tool steel dies. I'm thinking of doing this by hand, with a sledge and some kind of wooden holder for the coin and die. In general, do you have any suggestions on DIY coins? Thanks!

So /diy/, What -in your opinion- is the best home media center solution? 'Best' as in 'best value to money BUT with diyness' 'Media center' as in 'Downloading + Storage + Playback on TV apparatus'. I've been asking myself for some time, e.g. build a HTPC / rPi xbmc / WD Nas + WDTV / Stream from home computer? What do you think? Asking here instead of /g/ because don't want to buy supercomputer

Sewing Machine Maintenance?

3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Singer 403 (1).jpg]
I posted this in /cgl/ but I was hoping that someone with the same machine could help me. I have a Singer 403 sewing machine and lately it's been fucking my string up. This is the first time I've have a Singer, let alone a OLD singer. When I go to sew on a practice piece of muslin, one of three things happen: - the bottom string birdnests or just plain bunches in one spot -the top string sews like one to five stitches then "balls" up and snaps -the stitches are loose I played with tension but it doesn't want to work the way it should. I honestly don't know what to do because before, when I was patching up pants, it was working fine.

Leatherworking (General)

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: WHITE+GATE+LEATHER_5.jpg]
I need a piece of free software to design some leather related project. What I need is a software that allows "bending" and rotation of pieces with fixed lines, kind of like folding paper. On a related note, does Google's Sketchup allow this movement? I tried the sticky and the links but I couldn't find something specific.

Steampunk Sonic Screwdriver

6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: image.jpg]
Hello /diy/ Newfag here. I'm building a sonic screwdriver prop from doctor who and found one online. The problem is I have no idea where to find this one piece (bottom right in pic related) It's an archimedean drill and I can only find it ridiculously smaller than what I need. (For scale, the pipe in the picture is about 5" long) Anyone know where I can find this drill?
