Hey /diy/ Not wanting to create a weapons thread I will understand if this gets deleted, I don't know what the rules would be if it was for a sport I went to some fair where they had a guy doing a knife throwing act and got to have ago, It was extremely satisfy when you make a hit on the target Also took part in some axe throwing, but I don't have the space nor money for a set of axes Better than darts and archery Anyone got any tips on how to make a set of throwing knifes or am I best of splashing out on a set due to balancing?

What tool should i use?

9 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: angle grinder.jpg]
I'm getting a new slip o exhaust for my motorcycle today and i have to cut through the midpipe to install it. I could use my hacksaw but that would take forever and the thing's so old it would probably break 1/4 of the way through the pipe. So my question to you gentlemen is this. What tool would make the cleanest and quickest cut through the pipe? I was thinking an angle grinder would make quick work of it and i could use it to sand down the rough edges after i cut through. I asked /o/ and they suggested a dremel tool but i thought that might be a little too weak to get the job done quickly, but i would probably find a use for it eventually where as the angle grinder would more than likely be a one time use item.

Mold casters of /diy/ How durable is Silicones Inc XP-592? I want to actually use the silicone "mold" for the product- specifically to make wedges for my shoes. Due to a slight leg defect I currently sand dr. scholls down to make a ~3mm wedge. It's very inconsistent and absolutely covers every inch of my shop with blue foam dust. The end "product" only needs to be crush resistant, but flexible and last. The dr. scholls currently last longer than the shoes generally, because they're not subject to much except pressure as part of the shoe material sandwich. The idea is I could make a depression negative in the size and shape I need, pour silicones Inc XP-592 and tweak until I get the perfect insert. At that point I can "mass produce" about 20, s.t. I can have them for all my shoes instead of (as now) stealing them from one pair for another- i.e. my bike shoes vs. dress. In addition to having extras, I feel like the consistency would be better over grinding them down by hand. So the intended question is, how durable is Silicones Inc XP-592 and would it work in such and application (as a shoe insert)? Second, would there be a better casting/mold (or other) material to use for the inserts?

Hey /diy/, /tg/ here. I started playing a new tabletop minis game and want to build a tabletop for it. The game plays on a 3' by 3' board and the terrain features are generally sculpted from foam In the past, when I've seen friends make these tables, they've used plywood, particle board of something similar as the base. This unfortunately makes it very hard to transport cause of the weight. If I can, I want to use something really lightweight, but it has to be relatively rigid and sturdy. tl;dr What is a lightweight but rigid material that is not terribly expensive that I can buy in a 3' square?

recently i built two computers for me and my family, and now i have a huge box full of those air cushions from all the shipments, about 50-100 segments. Now, i can think of a dozen ways to use them, building a raft, insulating a small shack or a doghouse, light stuffing for a bulky halloween costume, but i dont really want to store a box full of air, just in case i might need it one day. So my question is, where can i get this stuff apart from ordering fragile electronics? The company producing them (fpintl) obviously just sells the machines to produce them on-site. Can i just go to the post office and ask them for 2 meters of big bubblewrap?

Does any one of you have a mealworm farm? I assume that building a prospering insect farm is an activity in the spirit of /diy/. I want to move part of my colony from oat flakes to oat bran. How do I make them move from one place to another? Using a colander is not an option because oats can't get throught the colander's holes.

plastic bottle noise maker?

Sup guys! I'm trying to craft a simple noise maker by shaking a handful of coins inside a plastic bottle. Any tips on how I can tweak it to be even more loud? How many coins should I use, what kind of bottle, air tightness etc etc? PS: It's for the protests currently being ran in Romania

Ok /diy/, I have a lot of old egg cartons I was gonna use to soundproof my room so that I can play guitar and drums in the complex I live in but I never got around to it. Now I've decided to do it, but I'm way too un-handy to handle this problem: how do I attach them to my walls? I can't nail/staple/puncture/ruin my walls in any way, and I have a pretty low budget. TL;DR, how do I inexpensively stick these to my walls?

hello /diy/ i just have a quick question, i would like to dig a hole to stock water i've been asking around and a lot of people told me that the only way to do this is to dig the hole and put a plastic tarp on the bottom, i was wondering if it is possible to do this without any plastic or even cement for cost issues. i mean plastic or cement is recent in history and i'm pretty sure back then there was another way of doing this pic related, it's what i want to do, but without the tarp thank you

I'm looking for a sheet metal folder, preferable cheap to make boxes (not just boxes) I've found these cheap ones on ebay, are they any good? Its not going to get much use. I'm also looking for a cheap drill press if someone has a link to one. I also live in Australia. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/450mm-x-1-5mm-Steel-Sheet-Metal-Folder-Bender-Bending-Brake-/350867216065?pt=AU_Hardware&hash=item51b150d6c1&_uhb=1

If i should try /o/ just tell me, I have frequented this board many times, only lurking though. I finally have something i can make a thread about! I have a 1995 toyota corolla dx, got it for a $1000. Not too bad. The only problem is it doesn't have keyless entry. Everytime i want to lock/unlock i have to be at the driver's side door. So i was looking for a good keyless entry system. Then I found pic related and decided i could shell out a little extra for remote start too. The only thing I don't like about it is the way the transmitter looks. It's just ugly. Viper has some super cool looking remotes. I have looked at the websites of the companies but i wanted other people's input too. Got anything /diy/?

Hey /diy/ Why is it that you cannot buy regular coal as a consumer? I'm experimenting with casting metal and charcoal is pretty bad at it, just barley melting aluminium. Is regular coal dangerous? Does it not have non-industrial uses? I understand that it's probably no good for cooking due to soot.

LED lights in model building

20 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: TOS Enterprise Revell.jpg]
I started work on a scale model of the Enterprise, and the thing is just screaming for some LED lights. The manual doesn't mention it but the clear plastic windows really make me want to do it. Problem is, I don't know the first thing about LED lights. Certainly not enough to start soldering wires together. Any advice on what to do? Buy cheap christmas decorative LED's and cram it in there? Use those LED strips you can buy now? Would I have to use a plug or could I use a battery? I have no idea. I'd wing it, but yesterday I didn't even know LEDs need resistors to work. Ideally I'd avoid having to drill a hole into it.

can i build a decent gaming desktop for $5-600? all i really plan on doing is fucking around with mods for gta4 and fallout. beyond that, i can't see myself needing to push it beyond anything that c/gpu heavy. so if i get an i5, what's a decent graphics card that'll help run things smoothly? image has nothing to do with what i want to build... unless it fits onto the budget.

This isn't really /diy/, however I feel this board has the best demographic as there's a lot of frugal people here who dumpster dive and that sort of thing. I walk around a lot at night, mainly because I finish work at 2AM and walk home, but I also find myself walking to shops to get cigarettes late as well. I have been noticing a trend lately - I'm finding a lot of stuff. I've found weed, not a big stash or anything, just a few grams and I'm ALWAYS finding money. All of this I find on accident, I'm just strolling along listening to music and 'Oh, £3.25 in change!'. Next weekend I'm going to go out on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night and actively look for stuff. I don't really need the money, but I'm just interested in how it turns out. I'm posting to ask for ideas, hints and tips you might have. > Take a torch > Go on weekends, drunken people drop shit all the time > Check curbs, this is where shit falls out of people's pockets when they are getting in and out of their car > McDonald's drive-throughs > Bus stops I'm kind of hoping I stumble across some drunken cunt's wallet and phone, but for the most part just coins would be nice.

6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: numark.jpg]
So I have this mixer right.... and it has no power supply. So I just need to find an appropriate power supply right? well this thing needs 10v 500ma ac to run..... where the hell would I even start looking for such a thing? Or could I diy it? I dunno guys, I'm really hoping I don't have to buy an actual adapter for this. I can only find them from the UK and at 17 ? its way too pricey for what it is..... So ya tl/dr : 10v ac adapter where can I find one? or how can I make one?

Hi Diy, first time posting here. So I just inherited my grandmothers old house and moved in. This is my first house and I want to upgrade it as much as possible over the next few years while I live in it. I just recently graduated college and have a full time job, but college loans are eating me alive right now so I don't have a lot of money. Anyways, my first project is going to probably be my bathroom, the problem as you can see in the pic is that it's pink. It's got pink tiles and pink flowery wallpaper and I hate it, what can I do? I'm pretty sure I can remove that godawful wallpaper, but what about the tiles? Can I paint them another color? I've seen kits for painting tiles but I've heard bad things about them. Also, something I'll probably work on later: I checked under the living room carpet and apparently there's a wooden floor underneath it, I heard wooden floors are worth a lot more so should I tear up the carpet and refinish the old wooden flooring?

How do I know what Rating Power switch I should use for the electrical circuit I'm building? I'm aware that for the power switch I need a SPDT with a rating of 250VAC Max (because I live in Europe) But I'm confused as to the amount of Ampere I should use. The circuit itself runs on 15v rails and uses a Toroid transformer 2x15V Appreciated!
