Building your own place

8 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1376091873363.png]
First time posting sorry if this has no meaning with this board. I want to build a small house/shack out of wood I also want to build some plantations/small places to grow food/herbs Next to the place I have a river in which I can fish salmons I've got this whole year to prepare and learn as much as possible about construction for next summer, also, my father has a lumber mill so wood is not a problem. maybe I'm just deluded but I really want to do it all by myself with some exceptions (like electricity (not a problem though)) My goal would be to be as self-reliable as possible, is it possible or is it too much of a dream? I need opinions because so far I have none. I lack a bit of knowledge but I have all the willpower to learn and do this.

Please Help

The floor inside my closet is wet. It's odd because it's only on one side of the closet. The walls aren't wet at all and I'm scared it might be a pipe below. Can any one help please kind of low on money and wanted to see if there's anything i can do myself to fix this.

I want to build a loft bed to save space. I'm running out of space. I don't know much about woodworking, but my grandfather has a little shop, so I'm not concerned about how I will get the tools or help building it. I want a desk on it, and possibly more drawers. Anybody have anything to add, or have done this before. Please don't mind my shitty paint creation.

Wind Turbiner from Car Alternator

14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Windterra.jpg]
I've been experimenting at home with aquaponics. So far my results have been very succesful and plan on entering the final phase (3rd year) of my experiment. I'm very excited however, in order increase the scale of my project to what is necesary, my current solar powered setup is insufficient. Solar power seems impractical due to cost per Watt.This outside my field of expertise. Any advice before I attempt contructing my own wind turbine from an alternator?

Joining small Sheet metal edges

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: IMG_20130814_234208_408.jpg]
I need to make a small galvanized sheet metal bullet button, and need some advice on how to connect the edges. I have a mig welder and a propane torch; so my options are silver soldering, brazing or welding the edges. I am worried that welding will just be overkill, so I am considering soldering or brazing instead. Any suggestions? also since the sheet metal is galvanized, what prep work do i need to do?

Quadcopter sheningans

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Roll_pitch_yaw[1].gif]
hey /diy/ I'm currently in the process of making a quadcopter. While I don't have my frame or my motors yet, I'm already trying to make the sensors work. I am able to use a gyroscope and an accelerometer to measure pitch and roll with a complementary filter, which works great by the way. However I also have a magnetometer but I can't figure out how I should interpret the values it gives me. Can someone with some experience shed some light on this? I'm also wondering how I should calibrate the sensors on the field when starting it up. Right now the 2 sensors that I understand are manually calibrated( I don't understand the magnetometer to calibrate it) but I seriously doubt that will last. I want it to calibrate on it's own when I boot it up. I can post my source if someone wants it.

So I'm planning to do this bunk bed desk out of wood. Any advice for a cheap way to get the materials? Any good cheap wood that's not as expensive as Mahogany? How much do you think this will cost me? I'm using this guide to do it: http://ana-white.com/2010/05/furniture-plans-loft-bed.html

Hi there, /diy/! I saw a thread on here a few weeks ago where someone was asking about respirators and someone suggest some full-face military gas mask that was inexpensive and used a standard size of filter cartridge... Anyone know what mask that might have been? I've got a paint project coming up and I'm gonna be standing around in fumes for an extended period of time, so I'm gonna need some kind of respirator... Problem is I've got this beard that messes with the function of most of the smaller, inexpensive respirators I've found. After doing some research I've found that most full-face masks will still function fine even with facial hair, but they get REALLY expensive. And before you suggest just shaving, the wife loves it and the painting is being done for her. I'm certain that if presented with the choice of "I shave my beard or leave your shit unpainted", she'd choose to keep the beard. Thanks, guys.

Sticky doesn't really answer my questions, so I figured I'd just post here. I need to install new horizontal blinds, I have never done this before and dropped out of shop class so I know nothing about studs, blinds, measurements or... anything really. Can I just measure the blind screwholes I have now and go buy one with the same measurements and mount it slightly above the previous screw holes, or do I have to learn how to use a stud finder/etc. If I have to install it where it was previously there is already a screw hole where the previous ones were... do I just redrill into the stud or do I need to fill in the old hole? tl;dr What measurements do I need to buy new blinds? are they based on where the screw holes go or the actual width of the entire plastic ends on either side? Do I need to hit studs (is there a trick to this? my stud finder gives completely inaccurate results even following the directions, studs disappear when I try and find them again). Can I redrill the brackets into the same direct place the previous screws were (I am assuming it is a stud, its rock solid on the wall), or will it just fall out like redrilling into a dry wall hole? pic related: who ever lived here last before me these weird holes (curtains?) dimpled into the stud (I am assuming there is a stud there). The ones I have now have 2 simple screws into a plastic bracket, is there a specific type of mounting mechanism I should look for to make things easier on myself? pic related: I have put off getting new ones for too long, my electrical tape and paper method isn't working anymore. Yes I am that handy crippled.

Modifying a water bath?!

15 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: IMAG0118.jpg]
Hey guys. Bought a digital water bath so i can distill some of my own booze. It only goes up to 80 which I thought would be perfect as ethanol boils at 78, but I completely forgot about specific heat capacities and the fact it has an autocutoff. I tried to distill last night and it took 2+ hours to get it up to 72oC. Due to the auto-cutoff in the device it turns off when IT hits 80, but not the object inside. From the attached pictures can anyone help me figure out a way to make it run a little bit hotter, say 90-95. So that I can actually boil off this ethanol. http://imgur.com/a/Yzh37#0

Hello, /diy/. I'm remodeling my basement soon and need a program that's both like Google Sketchup AND Layout. Something that has a grid option that can also display the project in 3D. What do you guys suggest?

So; I'm looking to get into smelting my own bullion coins/rounds out of copper/silver/gold. I don't have any experience with smelting metal, but I've done basic research and watched a few videos online. I love metal commodities (precious and base) and have always wanted to craft my own 'coins'. For now they'll be for myself for fun, but I may try to sell them in the future. To start I'd probably use copper which has the highest melting point of the 3 at around 2000 degrees f. I'm looking for advice on how I could go from the raw metal material to a 'coin' with a design of my own on it. Would I have to order specially made casts? Do you think it would be possible to heat/hammer the metal into shape (i know presses use multiple tens to multiple hundreds of tons of press force). I was thinking about building a solar foundry (link related, I got a /diy/ boner of epic magnitude when I saw it, great /diy/ channel) to perhaps melt the metal. Building this device would probably be difficult for me but do-able, and I could use it for a senior project at my uni (sustainability studies major, eng/econ minor). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drE54ctrHBY Looking for any and all advice related to the topic. Also lmk what you think of the video of the solar foundry.

Cell Phone Signal Boost

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 850booster.jpg]
/diy/ I live up in the mountains and I do not get very good service. Certain parts of my yard will allow me to pick up signal, be thats not always a given. I usually have to walk around until I can get two or three bars. In the house is even worse. I get absolutely no signal at all in the house. Im wondering if its because it is brick or because it has a metal roof or if that has nothing to do with it at all. The only thing I can do from in the house is send texts, and even then I have to be standing near a window or a door. And sometimes that doesn't even work. Can someone tell me of anyway to get a good signal in my home? Do these signal boosters really work? Or an antenna? I'm desperate here. Tired of having to run outside every time I get a phone call. Appreciate any help.
