Trying to remove sliding door closet. Got the top off fine, but not sure how to get this bottom mechanism fixed. The door is attached to the plastic white box by the nail, and the plastic white box has one of those squeezy arrowheads, where you squeeze it in easily, but can't take it out easily. Anyone know how to get this out?

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?

My name is anonymous, and I may have a problem. (Not pictured: various dev kits that double as programmers/debuggers.)

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?

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

Inventory Software

11 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: cat_storage.jpg]
I am looking for an inventory program, that allows the me to keep track of all the tools and other stuff I have. It should allow for several levels, e.g.: Philips screw-driver -> In blue tool-box -> in shed I should then be able to search for this screw-driver, or for the blue tool-box, but also see what other tools are in the tool-box, and what other containers or loose items are in the shed. Additional attributes to make searching easier are necessary as well, e.g. the screw-driver would be: tool -> screw-driver ->philips ->size 5 Right now I have everything in different boxes (pic related) which are in different places. Getting out everything at once and sort is not an option, I'd rather know what is in each box one-by-one and then keep track of what moves to where.

(i also posted this to /sci/, but when it comes to real world problems, you guys usually come up with better explanations) a friend of mine just replaced his well pump. the new pump sits on the ground, attached to a 200 foot pipe, and somehow manages to draw water from that depth. my understanding of barometers is that once the pipe is longer than about 34 feet the water will not be pushed any higher by atmospheric pressure, and a vacuum pocket will form above the water. my friend assured me that the pump is attached to one simple pipe that descends 200 feet down, and that without any priming, manages to draw water up and provide quite a bit of pressure. what am i misunderstanding here?

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!

Has /diy/ ever heard of stripper or orphan oil wells? They're abandoned wells that can still produce up to 15 barrels of oil a day. They're free. All you have to do is file paperwork, make any necessary repairs, and manage it. If you get a few of these going, with current gas prices, this could potentially be very profitable.
