I don't even know where to post this. Where do I get solid stock market advice? Both on 4chan, and online? I'm seriously considering doing it and I want to know where to start.

My landlord provides "heat" in the form of two ice cold base boards. I pay electricity. He offered me a complimentary electric space heater. I declined. I do have a gas stove. The line is pictured. I want to splice the line and connect it to a small ventless gas heater. I should probably look at the lease. It might not even be expressly forbidden. Either way, how hard is it to accomplish my goal? how do you do it?

Binder Clips General

I got some binder clips gathering dust. Read in a few articles how one can do creative things with them. The examples given were plausible but out of reach or not necessary. Anyways if you got any cents to chip in I'm all eyes.

I'm planning on building myself a water pipe out of a glass pop bottle. The problem I think I'm going to run into is after drilling a hole in the glass the downstem won't go into the hole at an angle. So I'm thinking of using a bit of aluminum tubing for the down stem and bending it like in the picture. My question is how would I go about bending my aluminum tubing neatly in such a shape? The tubing I'd be using would be 16mm in diameter.

Hey guys, not sure if this is the right board or not. If not let me know and I'll delete the thread. Anybody here know anything about modular synths? I do a bit of EDM production but the Modular scene has always really been interesting to me. >tl;dr OP doesn't know shit about modular synths and wants to learn

Hey /diy/, can you guys recommend a good way to remove a label from a beer bottle without damaging it? I want to start taking labels from some of my favorite beers to make a poster with. Pic related.

I bought a glacier bay water dispenser, and the instructions ask me to pull off the anti leak collar so I can run some cleaning solution down it Only problem is, I can not for the life of me figure out how the hell to get it off. It's very obvious that I need to twist the whole thing, it has open and close indicators, but it won't budge. That round knob is connected to the wall with a metal pole, but I can't get it to do anything either Anyone ever had one of these?

duno if this is really the place to ask but i figured some of you would be "in the industry" im currently applying to uni for an engineering degree, and i get my offer given to me in Janurary. until then im finishing up an Elec. & Comms. Engineering diploma. ( i went shit at school so i did this diploma to increase my chances of getting into uni) but im not sure if its going to be enough to get in, so what would be other ways to get "in the industry". i want to design and build stuff for a living. i was thinking if i didnt get in, seeming i dont have many "skills" and whatnot to get into a "decent" job, i could take up a job in something like electronic assembly/manufacturing whilst building things at home to build up a bit of a "portfolio" of what i could do, to get a bit more of a foot in the door for some other jobs. build my way up the ladder like that. TL:DR: what do you do if you're not getting into uni and dont have skills (or money to get skills) for trade jobs.

Hi I'm thinking about making my own UPS, because regular UPS' are not what I want. I'm running an ARM linux server + router+modem on my house; adding these up they won't reach 5AMP 12v. I want to have these connected to AC with their respective transformers, and in case of a power failure, have a circuit switch to a battery, and power these directly on DC. Also, I'm looking to get a car battery and a trickle charger. Could you tell me what to do ? I can solder but I've never gotten around to actually learn how to design a circuit; most complex thing I ever did was a couple of flashing leds. Thanks

So i stumbled across this somewhere... We’ve come a long way since the early days of electric power but the principle has remained exactly the same, all you have to do is spin a wheel. The spinning wheel is the heart of every power system in the planet. With that in mind, I thought of something simple. Let’s say we drop 64.2lbs from 100 feet high with a line attached to a spin wheel, depending on the set up that wheel would spin many times. Now comes the simple idea, first how do we lift those 64.2lbs back up there? A little bit of air. Just one cubic foot of air can lift up to 64.2lbs of dead weight in fresh water. Now rain or shine, day and night we can produce electricity. The post got a lot of negative reviews but I couldn't help but to wonder... I'll post the design I came up with and await any input. 0 exp. in physics... I know this shouldn't work, but why not?

so i live in a pretty sweet house that's on the edge of my university campus. the only issue is that its a 1950s house and still has all two prong outlets. now, i'm pretty /g/ and am about to expand my setup some more. i feel like with how much power i'm likely to start running through a 3 to 2 adapter, it could become dangerous. i'm also concerned about my gear and keeping it as safe as possible (from surges, lightning and the like). to give you an idea, i'm planning on having 3 monitors, a desktop computer, a subwoofer, a poweramp for passive speakers, all run through a power conditioner plugged into the wall. what I'm curious about is if its possible to wire 1 or both of the outlets in my room to be grounded and safe, if there's some sort of worthwhile alternative, or if i should just call an electrician. i've spoken with my landlord group twice about it and they're not willing to shell out any money whatsoever in doing it, so I'm basically on my own.

My old 2006 PS3 has been broken for months. Every time I try to turn it on the power button light just blinks red and won't even turn the system on. I took apart the system and I think it's probably the DVD drive or w/e that's dysfunctional. How do I fix this?

I've been trying to learn about how to communicate with external devices in real time. So far I've only found microcontrollers which you can load code onto, or use serial communications through means that are beyond me at the moment. I want to create a peripheral to work with a minigame I'm making via USB. What would be the best way to do this? Is serial via USB viable? What if I decided to go commercial?

Hi /diy/nosaurs, Not really sure if this is the right board but I'll shoot anyway. I'm currently unemployed as is my mother, she always did sowing and upholstery in her spare time to help out friends and family - she want's to set up her own business but due to my fuck head father (seperated) with a messed up mortgage which will land on her if he kicks it so we are debating setting it up in my name. Now we're not just going to jump straight in and go for it we are attending meetings for advice. Seeing as many of you are skilled workers I was playing on the off chance that some of you may be self-employed and if you have any advice to offer which will be much appreciated. Pic unrelated

Ok /diy/ I am going to begin a project where I am going to weld an old aircraft warning beacon (from a telecom tower) to a base and wire it up to a socket to power it. But first I have a few questions >Can I wire two bulbs to one standard socket? >How do I wire them? The old wiring looks like pic related. >Can I put a switch on it? An if I can how? Will bump with more pics of the beacon.

Toy Catamaran Project

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: catamaranplans.jpg]
Hello, /diy/. I’ve been getting rather wistful for the life of the sea lately. So I decided on building a toy sailboat. To be precise, a toy catamaran sailboat. The picture here is what I drafted up so far. She’ll be 24”x14” in size with a 24” high mast. The mast will be removable for storage. She’s scaled to 1/12 from the specs of a small racing catamaran. Roughly in scale with most 6” action figures. (A ship needs a crew, right?) I have all the materials needed for the body. The two hulls will be made from a standard 2x4 stud pine. The other parts will be made of dowels, plywood, and various scrap wood on hand. I have a chop saw, electric hand saw, electric drill, dremmel, hammer, nails, etc. Planning on painting her with some exterior paint along with some exterior stain for the mast parts. I’m an amateur woodworker, but I’ve done several furniture & home improvement projects that I’m proud of. While the body is pretty much planned out, I haven’t done much work on the sail dimensions. I figure once the basic body is done, I’ll be able to better measurements. I’m thinking either canvas or nylon for the sails. Whatever Hobby Lobby has that looks light & sturdy enough. I also gotta buy a eyelet brad maker as well for the holes to attach the sails. The spinnaker sail will be triangular so as to attach the top point on the mast and each of the bottom points will attach onto one of the hulls on their respective sides. I haven’t worked out all the rigging either, but I plan on using the mast’s spreader along with the mainsail‘s boom.

So the parts showed up and I immediately set to improving my detox. Switches in place ready for the wiring to commence.
