Fixing a dead lawn and garden

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: zdzislaw_beksinski_1979_2.jpg]
OK, so a while ago I bought a house on a short-sale. The owner had not been maintaining it, so right now my front yard looks like something out of Fallout. Honestly, this is my first house so I don't know a whole lot about gardening and landscaping. There are a couple of garden areas with wood chips in them, and a bunch of dead plants and weeds popping up. The grass on the lawn is pretty much brown and looks dead. Also, apparently the previous owner had a dog or something because there are a bunch of bald spots on the lawn. How can I go about fixing this? Since it's already mid-September and I only have 6 weeks at most of nice weather left, (I live in Minnesota) should I just leave it?

Red-bull mini fridge

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: WP_20130917_003.jpg]
I got this red-bull mini fridge through my work, it's the VV2 made in 2007. I'm using it for my mini-bar in my room, but the problem i wasn't anticipating is that it makes a lot of noise. I made sure everything was clean and dust free but the noise is simply because it's intended for commercial use. Is there anyway i could install some sort of acoustic padding or something to reduce the noise with out compromising the safety or general integrity of the fridge.

I would like to turn these two barrels into a sort of 'punching bag'. I'm thinking about screwing them together, but I don't see how I can use nuts and bolts without actually cutting one open. I suppose I could open a spot on the side of the blue one near the top. That way there are no openings for the weight or sand I want to put in. Any ideas?

Making cigarette packs

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: original_314846_ejSJlkSH94VTu3zyqA5(...).jpg]
I need to make a large amount of cigarette boxes. Just your standard cardboard boxes are sufficient. I know I could buy custom printed boxes online, but I'd like to stay away from the high cost and shipping associated with those sorts of companies. I was thinking of going with the obvious method: >Buy cardstock, trace and cut out template, glue together into box shape Getting the template would be easy as I would just have to unfold a pack of cigarettes and then trace the outline. However, this method leaves me the problem of getting my desired graphic onto the box. Should I just print the picture, cut it out and glue it onto the front? This is what I had been planning except I feel like they would look sort of shitty with paper images just glued to them. Would you guys know what type of glue I should use for this? Another idea was to make a sort of stamp of the image I want, then just stamp the graphic right onto the boxes before I fold them. Is there a way I could pull this off without it looking shitty? Third idea was to run the pieces of cardstock themselves through the printer, and just print the templates with images right onto them. However I'm at uni right now and don't think it would be a good idea to try to put pieces of cardstock into the library printers. What does /diy/ think?

I need help with straight cuts. I recently bought my first table saw as I've moved in to my own house. I've used table saws before but never on cuts this long, usually less than 16 inches. Now I can't get the fucking cuts to stay straight. I've ready about feather boards and it seems like a good idea. The only issue is I have a straight jig that came with my saw and when I try to use that the pressure from the wood not being able to split away from the blade causes a ton of kickback. Do feather boards still have this issue?

so, i was wondering if there is a way to figure out the amount of heat generated from a light (an led, in specific) if you know the input voltage/current and know the lumen output. forward voltage 3V 300mA 100lumen

I keep a lot of wrenches and sockets in a tool box in my truck since pretty much thats where they get used 99% of the time. The thing is the sockets are just sitting in a pile at the bottom of the tool box so when I need one its a pain too hunt for that one size you need at the moment. What is a good way to organize sockets in a regular tool box? Pic unrelated but sort of cool

Hey /diy/, a laundry machine/pluming question. I noticed two valve openings? For new water to be pumped into the laundry machine. So one is plugged into the machine but the other is unsealed. What is the piece called that seals up this opening? Pic related

Hi all, I have just brought pic related to make an autonomous thrust-vectoring VTOL. It will be a proof of concept before I try to make a thrust-vectoring solid fuel rocket. I am having trouble picking a unit to run everything so I'll list what I need. >triple-axis gyro >triple-axis accelerometer >triple-axis magnetometer >3 servos >EMC for the fan I looked into using a Raspberry Pi but the outputs can't run Pulse Width Modulation fast enough for the EMC. I'm now thinking about using a Arduino with a 9 Degrees of Freedom - Razor IMU. Any advice would be great as this is all new to me.

making your own screens' support

8 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 61NkCV8FdYL._SL1500_.jpg]
Hello /diy/ has any of you already done some screens' support ? the plate screwed behind the screen seems not that difficult to create, 4+1 holes and a press to give the central volume. With tubes of steel, I can also attach them easily. making then a central tube, going into the Desk, or, direct in the wall ? What are your experience or thoughts ?

Hey /diy/. Long story short, I need a bag to carry stuff around. No money to buy the only viable option around which is expensive in the size I need. The design that I want is a sailor bag/duffel (pic related but not this big. Maybe 60% of this size). Other options are either non-existant or would not fit my needs. The design seems very simple so I want to sew one myself or pay someone to do it (easy to find people that do this kind of work around). What kind of material/fabric would be good to make a bag like this? It seems that they are made of sailcloth but I doubt I will find this kind of thing around. I need something to carry 10kgs of weight. The blueprint of it would be a round part on the bottom sew to two rectangular parts that make a hollow cylinder. Simple like that?

Hey DIY! Long time lurker so forgive me. I bought a full oxy acetelyne torch kit and would love to use propane instead. Can anyone point me to what part I would need to go from a cga 510 acetylene regulator to propane? http://m.northerntool.com/mt/www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200413935_200413935

Simple circuitry question

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: liquor light1.jpg]
Greetings my fellow /diy/orks, I have a pretty simple question about an extremely simple circuit, but i'm almost entirely ignorant when it comes to electronics, and google isn't helping me much. I make lamps that are powered with LED strip lights. For most of them, I just cannibalize a 12v charger of some kind and solder the wires directly to the solder points of the strips. (pardon my lack of proper terms) However, for others I solder on a 9v battery adapter to make a portable light. In both cases the lights are just wired in series, and I know for a fact that they can be powered from either end of the strip. So here's my dilemma: A customer wants me to make him a lamp with both options. He wants it to have a cord, but also be able to take a battery for when he wants to move it around. How exactly should I go about doing this? As it is I can only think of 3 different scenarios. A. just solder both the power supply wires and the battery adapter wires to the same points, on top of each other. B. solder one supply onto each end of the strip, powering it from one side or the other as needed. or C. have 2 entirely separate circuits with different lights for each circuit. (i don't want to do this, as more overhead costs and less space to work with, but if need be I can) what are your thoughts on this? I know that having 2 power supplies can be tricky and that batteries can explode if they short circuit, so i dont want to just learn as i go. pic related

What's up /sci/. I'm working on a lego robotic arm that can perform a few simple functions such as throwing a ball and screwing a nut onto a bolt. The controller/battery has two functions (forward/back) and I'm trying to figure out how to make one function open a claw (to throw the ball) and spin (to screw on the nut). I'm kind of at a loss for how to put this all together. Any ideas? Thanks.

Anyone here who built a ping pong table want to share their experience of building it and how it came out?

Does /diy/ have any experiences with a portable table saw? Anything you've all used and recommend? Anything good for $200 or less? Thinking of picking one up soon and have been reading up on reviews but I was hoping for some first hand accounts from fellow anons.

Laptop Stand Research + DIY prototype building advice

I was wondering if anyone here had any info just on the top of their heads that could help with some research for laptops. Any experienced opinions would be really helpful. Materials, components, joints, manufacturing processes, finishes, ergonomics and anthropometric data and environmental/safety concerns. (pic related)

Hi /diy/, I have some questions that I think one of you might be able to help. I have a shirt (pic related) that has specs of pink all over it. I want to try and recreate this design as close as possible, but I have no idea what I would need to begin. I wanted to make one with blue an gold/yellow. What dyes would I need to use, ahold I use one of the colors as a base for the shirt, or use a white t and do both of them. Also the method I need to use, should I individually recreate the dots, or try an evenly splatter them with a brush.
