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/ I am really in need of a new office/desk chair. I'd like to make something like >pic related however I'm not too sure where to start in regards to materials/plans (cheapest vs. most durable, best design practices) etc. I'm basically a noob. I figured you guys would be the best to ask and haven't let me down in the past. I guess what I plan to get out of it is a chair free to rotate and maybe tilt. I'm not looking to make it move around at all. Lift optional but I can see that becoming more expensive and complicated.

Seperating nut from bolt.

Sup /diy/. I got a Eliptical a few days ago. While moving it into my place, the knob that goes on the latch that locks it into a folded up position snapped off... So I'm trying to find a replacement one. Problem is, the knob was glued around a nut, which was then glued around the bolt that screws into the spinged latch. So i'm currently dealing with pic related. Anyone got any ideas on how to take the nut off? It looks like they used some kind of sealant to attach the 2. If i could get the nut off, i'm sure homedepot or lowes would have some universal knob that would screw on. So any ideas on how i can get this off?

Selective logging. I've heard about it and googled around but want some input if any of you DIYers have done it before. My family owns about 150 acres of land (120 of it is woodlands) and my unclselective ing to allocate me about 5 acres to start my permaculture experiment. The initial investment is always the kick in the balls but I figured if the timber company pays well enough I can deal with the most expensive part of the project which would be excavation. From what I know the family has given mineral rights to a power company to extract natural gas but the trees are still ours and that company already made dirt roads to access the land. TL;DR: is selective logging worth the time? Is the profit large enough?

So I had the idea to start making my own diesel from algae. Does anyone do it? Is it possible, and how hard is it? What do I need to start out? I would also like to produce everything I need for that myself, which as far as I understood is methanol, sodiumhydroxide and algae oil. Is that right? Or do I need other stuff? Would making the methanol by making charcoal from wood be a good idea? What about the sodiumhydroxide? Is it viable to produce it by electrolyzing saltwater? I have 1 small (about 40l) and one medium (100l) aquarium that are empty, and a small garden with a forest nearby for the wood. Please help me out.

Picked up two paint samples from Lowe's for fairly cheap today, brand was Valspar. I am using the paint for an outdoor table (pic related). I want to make sure it doesn't get fucked up by the weather since it will be outside. The guy at Lowe's told me NOT to put anything over the paint (such as polyurethane) because it will cause bubbles in the paint and look bad. He told me just the paint itself will be enough against the weather. Is this mofo serious or should I be getting something else to protect it against the elements?

I need to make a box frame out off wood that is easily torn down. Will 2x4s and 4x4s be able to bear 200 pounds? I plan to bolt them together with 4 1/4" bolts at each corner. You think that's enough?

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?

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)
