sup, /diy/. I have a problem, and i figured this was the best board to help solve it. I work in a meat shop, which stores its seafood in a large display tray, similar to pic related. There is ~4inches of crushed ice layered across the case, which measures around 4x20feet. The ice starts out as loose crushed ice, but inevitably forms one solid slab by the time we close. At the end of the day, after removing the fishes from the ice, one of our required tasks is to melt all the ice from the tray, using a hose spraying very warm water. This takes fucking forever. the hose has to be constantly moved, as it only melts a very small area of the ice at a time. this means that 1 of the 2 closing employees is occupied by this one task for a good 45 minutes, leaving all of the many other closing tasks to the other closer. management, in their infinite wisdom, has cut our close-up time from 2hrs to 1hr. With this change, the issue of melting the ice becomes much more of a pain, and causes the close process to be extremely hectic and stressful. So... how can I melt this ice faster? A method that involves minimal employee work would be great, and cheap would be amazing, as I will, at least initially, have to fund this project myself. No explosives, fire, chemicals, etc, obviously. thanks for your input!

hey /diy/ so i took apart an old (1980's) marine radio and desoldered a little black box from the main board. it has two terminals and is labeled 'Y' on the silk screen. but it's literally a small plastic black box, completely sealed, except for the two terminals sticking out. my best guess is that it's some kinda oscillator. how can i test it to figure out what it is?

Homemade Iontophoresis

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: hqdefault.jpg]
Ok guys, this is /diy/ related. Some of you may already know, but if you have fucked up hands or feet that sweat a lot you can cure it using Iontophoresis machine. It basically put small electric current through your body and causes your palms (or feet) to sweat much less Now, it's possible to custom make this device (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOQfjZ9-Akw) Now, since i am summerfag newfriend (not really but i only occasionally deal with electricity) i was wondering if 12v battery can actually cause any damage if you dun goof and act like a retard Next thing, how many Ah would i need? I guess this battery doesn't require a lot of work since it will work only 20 min/day. Would 7Ah would be enough? Pic related, it's how it should look after everything

Hello /diy/, first post here. I've been reading an awful lot of articles through the interwebs about radio astronomy and I've decided to give it a try and see what comes out of it, the problem is that in all those articles there hasn't been a comprehensive guide of equipment or a beginners' guide to RA. So, I someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

We had a big rain storm and about 2 metric shitloads of water got in my basement. The water came in a vent to the basement that we had no clue existed till now. this water completely soaked everything in the basment and sat for about a day before it was discovered since its only used for storage. We removed everything from the basement and only put back completely dry items. Not many things left to put back now that most is at the dumpster already. I went back downstairs today and smelled a mildew smell. we've been running fans and the dehumidifier since it happened, and we got all the water up we could find. Should I start ripping off sheet rock now or what? pic related mfw i found the water

First time poster here on /diy/ so forgive me if I'm not following proper posting protocol. I recently bought these shoes for really cheap at Target. As you can see, they're not white, they're more like off-white/eggshell. I was wondering if I can paint/dye them white somehow and keep them in good condition (regular use, I don't want it chipping away). Any information helps!

How much does it matter where you put your shelf bracket. I am installing a 40 cm wide plywood shelf in my living room. I want to have it approx 0,5 m below the ceiling. If I put the shelf brackets above the shelf then I won't be able to see it (Pic related left). and I would prefer that. But will it be less strong compared to installing the bracket below the shelf (pic right). I should mention that I plan on using somewhat heavy duty brackets and I will not put too much weight on the shelves. In addition I have drilled a couple of extra holes in the brackets so I can use a few more screws. Will I succeed?

To the syntheads around here, Anyone ever heard of an available schematic for a step-variable sequencer to use in analog modulars? For example, mutable into 4x4, 2x8, 1x16. I thought of using four decade counters with a hard reset at step 3, with a 4024 dividing a clock signal, but I can't really sort out the switching involved, let alone the cable mess that'd create (mainly due to reset routing). I'd use a PIC or an AVR, but I don't know jack shit about programming. Any ideas are welcome

Hello /diy/. I have a question about a lighting kit. I recently made the pictured lamp using the resources from an old $10 lamp, and a tall soda can. I like the way it looks and performs so I'd like to make another. I don't want to keep buying lamps just to take them apart. Does /diy/ know where I could get a 'lamp kit' which would have all the appropriate wiring to make this? Has /diy/ done anything similar? The lamp uses a standard size bulb socket and has screw holes underneath the socket to fasten it onto the can. Plugs into the wall and uses a rotary switch. Thanks in advance.

I have this steel beam going through a room in the basement. It use to support the floor of the room above it, but i have raised that floor (it was a sunk in living room) which left this beam running through a room i had dug out (and had the concrete floor poured). how would you go about removing this thing? I'll have to cut it up into smaller pieces, but how would you suggest i support the rest of it so it doesnt fall and bust the floor when i remove a section of it? I have a few ideas already, I'm just looking for some more before I dive into this

I have access to a machine shop with all the tools I could ever need along with a bridgeport CNC. The only problem is that I'm not the most creative person and I don't know what to make. Can you guys suggest some fun/practical projects?

Terrain?!

I know this is probably more for tg, but I'm trying to make table top terrain for one of my games. Between rent and all my living expenses I don't have too much money to spend lately. I was wondering if anyone here could link my to a reliable hot cutting foam knife. Preferrably one that wont break the bank, Around 50 USD. Pic Not related really

Hi Diy, i feel like trying out homebrewing but don't want any sediment from bottle brewing or buying expensive kegging systems. I thought about dry ice but most methods would produce a big boom. So the pic is my theorized setup to carbonate beer. I was thinking dry ice would still work for a co2 source. But I'm not sure how long it would take to dissolve the gas. I've never done this so I'd appreciate some educated opinions on if its practical or if there's anything I'm overlooking.

well this is my first post ever in /diy/ and I hope somebody knows about glues/resin or similar stuff. I want to repair the analog-sticks of my n64 controllers. I already did it with one, the problem is that the stick grinds on the little "plasticrails" that transmit the movements and makes it more and more loose. At the first time I used a loctite 401 glue to fill the gaps that had been grinded but after using it for a little while it was like I had never opened it. >Long story short I need a glue/resin or whatever with a good abrasion-resistance (sorry my english is not good when it comes to technical stuff)

Front Mounting a Bottom Mounted Monitor

I'm getting this today, a Lethal Enforcers cabinet that uses a bottom mounted monitor that reflects from a slanted mirror. There is ample room in the cabinet to front mount it, but I'm not exactly sure how I should go about this. hang it with wire? Create a cage? Glue in a platform?

So, I'm making a board game. Pretty much everything about it is completed, except for the character pieces. I've been using random pieces from other board games as a sort of stop-gap solution for the time being, but this has lead to confusion from the players trying to keep track of which player's pieces are which. (This is because there are "character cards" that have all the character's stats/moves on them, and you just choose a figurine that looks the most like the picture on the card) So, I'm wanting to purchase some sort of material, maybe modeling clay, in order to make these figurines. The thing is, I have no artistic talent whatsoever. This isn't that big a deal though because all I really need are vague approximations of the images on the cards. So, what I want to know is, what kind of material would you recommend? I need something that is A) Easy to mold into whatever kind of shape you want B) Will hold that shape indefinitely, and C) Hardens to the point that it can withstand being held, and moved around, like any board game piece. Also, the cheaper the better. What say you?

I hope this is the right place to ask but how hard is it for someone who has no clue about how electronics work to learn and build a guitar pedal? I see kits for pedals that I want, but assembled they cost too much. But these kits I can do it for half the price if I put it together. pic sorta related
