Hey /diy/, I've recently started living in my van and I've run into a problem that I could use a little help to solve. The nights are starting to get cold, so I picked up a heated blanket. Unfortunately, the cigarette lighter doesn't put out enough power to use it. I'm also not sure my car battery would be able to sustain that overnight. Anyways, this got me looking into other ways I could get electricity in my car. Would buying a deep cycle battery, an inverter, and a trickle charger be my best bet? Would that be overkill for just running a 130 watt heated blanket? I have place I can recharge the battery during the daytime, but would recharging it using a trickle charger take too long? Do I have other, better options that I might be missing? Pic is my car (1996 Ford Windstar).

I want to get into in the industry of CNC Machining. I have previous experience with things like AutoCAD and SolidWorks, and when it's applied in a way that makes sense to me, the math isn't an issue. The issue is getting the experience. I've been told that if you can work a Bridgeport, you can work just about anything, but I don't know how much truth there is to that. I also wouldn't know where to start getting experience. Would an apprenticeship be the way to go, or should I look into education? My local community college offers an associates program, but that's another two years.

I need advice. My idiot roommate sprayed windex in an area with a live power outlet and big surprise, he got it in there. It started popping out sparks and buzzing for about 5 minutes. I told him to turn the breaker off and give it time but he thinks 2 minutes is time enough to dry, so he turned it back on and it sparked another 2-3 times. He thinks I'm overreacting, I think he should replace the outlet. We're living in a piece of shit place that was built in the 50s so I don't want to take any risks. Should the outlet be replaced?

I bought a TRENDnet TEW-L208 for an antenna at Fry's today. I saw the SMA and knew I had adapters for both M and F so I didn't worry about it until I opened it up and was getting ready to connect it. Turns out it was reverse polarity. I now need an adapter to get from this to SMA F preferably. Whilst searching the interwebs I quickly discovered half of the world says this is RP SMA M and the other half says RP SMA F. I know what the box says. What do you say /diy/?

Quick electrical question. I'm quite familiar with DC but not so much AC (learned on cars). I wan't to get involved in home electrics and wiring and I don't understand the concept of the neutral wire. Can someone explain why it's not just 2 wires?

I need a case fan to replace the fan that died in my mini fridge. It has to be 90mm x 25mm It has to have a 2 pin connector It has to be 12v and .16a What's the best one I can buy? I don't care about how loud it is, it just needs to move the most air.

Hey /DIY/ I have a problem. Got a Schwinn bike from Sam's club and something on the stem broke. I heard something snap when I first assembled it but nothing seemed wrong until last weekend. The handlebars and head set started moving around horizontally. Its a scwhinn S29 mountain bike. Frame is alu.

Alright DIY I think I've finally managed to ruin my saucepan from college. its thick aluminum which is painted black and has a non-stick coating. the non stick was giving up already, but I accidently let it boil dry and it filled the kitchen briefly with a hell of what smelt like a toxic smoke, so needless to say its life as a cooking instrument is dead. Anyone have any ideas for how to reuse a metallic vessel which is of relatively limited capacity and not food safe? I don't think I'd be able to make a forge or anything that could be potentially dangerous here as the neighbours would likely call the city or something (paranoid jerks)

glass cutting

hey guys I have access to a shit ton of upper-end spirit bottles (ie belvedere, grey goose, chase, absolut etc) and thought I might as well try make something out of them, I have a bottle cutter on order, should be here in a couple of days now. basically i have around 40/50 empty abosolut bottles of all types (I also have the one in the pic) I am going to make goblets out of them, by cutting the top 1/3 off and attaching to the base, I have bought some industrial strength glass glue but was also thinking about trying to torch the glass together? would this work with a simple butane blow torch? also thinking about using a soldering iron to curve where the glass is cut instead of sanding it down, would that be a better way of doing it? These will mainly be for friends and family (christmas haha!) but I will likely put some on ebay too so I want to make them to a high standard. any glass cutting/craftsmanship advice is welcome

Ok /DIY/ we all are well acquainted with the use of rocket candy and black powder in homemade rockets as fuel; but can anyone provide any alternatives? Not necessarily better ones either, just relatively simple to implement ones. I've heard of using Hydrogen Peroxide, but I can only get my hands on 30 percent, and I don't know what to use with it. Tl;dr. Need rocket fuel besides rocket candy and blackpowder. Must be DIY-able.

How do I wire this thing?

Hey, sorry to take your time with this but I googled and didn't turn anything up. I'm doing some headphone wire repair which I thought would be simple and decided to get the slim version of the stereo 3.5mm jack since it would be easier to heatshrink/sleeve than the standard, but I can't rightly guess how to wire it. Any help? Thanks.

So, I'm thinking about selling my current laptop and using the money to build a new rig. I'm expecting maybe up to $1000 from it. Where can I go to find out everything that I need? Where can I go to get good prices? I'd like to make it as awesome a gaming machine as possible on this budget + for awesome case but not essential

Is there a good way to drive high power leds in a series-parallel array? In my application they'd be driven by a simple linear/switching psu. The voltage would be regulated by a mosfet controlled by a microcontroller. What sort of component would need to be put in line with them to keep them from killing themselves? Would the standard current limiting resistor from low power applications be enough? Or is there a better option?

Hello /diy/. Here's my question. I'm a trained chef, I did alot of sous-vide cooking in restaurants and etc. What I would like to know is, is it possible to create a home made Thermo Circulator? Picture related, it's their old model (you can see more of the parts, I guess) You can basically get the temperature of the water (normally in the 60C) for extended period of time, and the newer models have a way to move the water (fan?) so the heat gets distributed evenly. How would I go about building a little machine for cheap? I really don't want to shell a 300$ for a cheap ass home version. Profesionnal version (the one I'm used at) is 900$

I'm planning on buying beat up guitars on ebay and craigslist and then fixing them up and selling them. How profitable is this and how easy is it to learn how to fix cosmetic damage on a guitar? I wouldn't buy anything with fucked up pick ups yet, just chips and scratches. I found a nice guitar for $300 on ebay and without all the damages it goes for $800. I don't see why this wouldn't be profitable but I've never done this before. Does this sound good? I've already learned a bit about how to fix chips and I have previous knowledge on how to string guitars and how to adjust truss rods. Also any advice or links or books would be appreciated.

Hello, i'm trying to spoof the vod server of my satellite receiver last year i had an old version of the set-top-box, it was using an HTTP connexion, i could spoof the server with a raspberry pi as a DNS and WEB server on the new set-top-box, they are now using HTTPS (ssl) and forbidding to set a local DNS server so i setup the raspberry pi as a gateway, and running a web server with SSL support, then routing address with iptables to redirect to the server when i sniff the connexion, everything is running as expected, the set-tob-box makes a dns request, get the real ip of the webpage, then ask the page to the real server, the raspberry redirect the ask to my server but, the set-top-box get an error, i guess it is from the unverified CA of the certificate (which is self-signed) when i simulate on a browser, firefox gives a warning about self-signed and untrusted CA, but if i allow i can go further and make everything works as i wanted so my question is : is there a way to make that work? i tried to redirect the page to another server using a trusted certificate (google.com) but still get an error i also tried to iptable the 443 to 80, but it still try to comunicate with SSL protocol, is there a way to make a clean protocol redirection? or i'll still need a trusted certificate? and last question, as everything is offline, is there a hacked/leaked trusted certificate available to download? i just want the stb to get only a spoofed page, i thought a man-in-the-middle attack would be working, but no

Any tips for washing cellular concrete? It has coffee stains and stuff like that in it. Soap and water ain't really doing anything since its "hollow" for a lack of better word. Would soaking it for few hours help anything?
