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?
The Collector mask

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

I have a homebrew thread running and due to requests, I've decided to make a home distillation one. Please post any distilling experiences, distilling laws, information, how to make your own still instructions., or any other relevant information. Thanks
