Asphalt Paving

8 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: asphalt paving.jpg]
Hello /diy/, I am wondering if anybody here has any experience paving with asphalt. I have taking a pavement construction class in uni so I understand the fundamentals. However, I have no experience in the matter. Although I do not have the funds or land at the moment, I intend to construct a long (1 to 2 mi) driveway on which I can drive on for recreational purposes. It is probably best to hire a contractor but I feel like I might be able to save quite a bit of money by hiring a couple of truck drivers and employing a few more interested friends. I will definitely rent a paver and roller. I wanted to see if anyone could offer up some strategies on how not to screw up. This link is the inspiration for such a project. sort of. http://jalopnik.com/5849231/in-his-front-yard-this-man-built-americas-largest-private-racetrack

I have been having problems with converting a computer fan to generate electricity. I bought a budget maplin one but it turned out that you couldn't open it. Before I blow my last £13 can anyone tell me a fan brand that can be opened and reversed for sure?

Keyboard Tray?

Putting my garage computer back and I have an 11" deep cabinet that just fits the keyboard. Give me better ideas than just having a bit of wood on 10" drawer sliders for the keyboard and the mouse fixed to a separate shelf on the wall. Cabinet is 24" wide, 11 deep. Keyboard section is 9" high. Cabinet will be closed when not in use. Mouse is wired (it's a ball mouse for you oldfags) and does not fit with the keyboard. It needs to be down and to the side or something. 90% of the time I mouse to Pithos and fire it up and that is the only use. the other 10% I'm looking up how something comes apart, goes together or whatever in the middle of said project. So the keyboard is mostly unused. Better ideas then?

So dynos, i have been reading about synchronous motors, and i actually got one from a microwave , i was playing around with it and suddenly when i was spinning the propeller i got shocked, by touching the terminals i pulled out a multimetter to meassure voltage in CD and CA and both are getting generated, (way more CA than CD) so now i wonder Why is this happening? Is it generating AC or DC ? Whats the max voltage i can get from spining this thing ? I have to go out i will plug it to an oscilloscope later tonight however i wanted to ask so maybe someone gere can give me any leads of why is this happening

Does anyone know a tool to engrave in synthetic leather? I'm going to bind a book with synthetic leather and I need to know what tools I need to engrave something on it and customize. Also, if you have any tips for binding a book, leave it :D

I want to put up some shelves on a wall in my kitchen. Attached picture shows the situation. It is a drywall wall, with standard size drywall slabs, 60cm wide, supported by wooden beams behind the drywall. Now I know that I can easily put up shelves using supports screwed into the support beams, in the picture I called the beams 'a', 'b', and 'c', but that would mean having to go with either 60cm or 120cm shelves, by placing supports at 'a', 'b' and 'c' for example for a 120cm shelve. But what if want the shelves to run for, say, 90cm or 100cm, starting at the left edge of the wall? How should I safely mount a shelve meant for holding cookbooks (which are often large and heavy) in this situation? If such a 100cm shelve starts at the left side of the wall, I figure I should fix a support at least at 'a', possibly at 'b', and use drywall anchors for the shelve end between 'b' and 'c', but the support at 'b' would look out of place because it isn't centred. What are my alternatives? Am I underestimating the shelve bearing properties of drywall and drywall anchors?

I have a Morse code key and I want to automate the movement of it. I'm trying to think of the best way to do so, and I'm coming up with the idea of using a small electromagnetic solenoid like picture related. The first idea was to use a big electromagnet hidden underneath the key and attach a small ferrous piece to the key itself and pulse the electromagnet in order to attract the key and rely on the spring within the mechanism when the current is cut to pull it back again. I was going to use the transformer out of an old microwave or something but this seems like overkill. The voltages required would be mains. Something like a small solenoid could be used to push it but I'm not sure if the solenoid will 'pop' back out when current is cut and with what kind of force. The technical sheet describes it as a 'pull' type so I'm assuming that when current is applied, it pulls itself in and when cut, it pops out again, or maybe not, maybe it relies on gravity or a flip in polarity? I'm not sure. Also the control mechanism. I was thinking of getting a little IC capable of acting as a pulse width modulator and then controlling it with that. Not sure if I can find some that are happy outputting 6V on rails, I'm only used to using tiny little audio electronics. Any advice or ideas? It'd be much appreciated, I hope I've explained what I intend to do fully. The intention is to have a box with a Morse code key on the top which moves and triggers itself with mostly a hidden mechanism.

Is it possible to adapt an LCD screen from a laptop to hooked up to a regular tower? Like splice it into a VGA connector? I don;t really know much about that side of things but I figure since it needs a digitizer then at some point it must be receiving an analog signal, otherwise it would't have to convert it.

I'm currently working on an interactive art project and I've run into a bit of a snag. Long story short, I need to trick Windows 7 into thinking that two USB touchscreen overlays are actually one large touchscreen (basically the same way it treats two monitors in extended display mode.) The problem is that Windows does not naturally support dual touchscreens; it either completely ignores the input from one of them, or recognizes them as the same, mirrored pointing device (the same way it treats two monitors in clone mode.) What I need is either a piece of hardware (arduino?) or software or combination thereof that would fix this problem, preferably cheaply. All I can find on Google is that there might be some proprietary drivers out there, but other than that there is little to no documentation on the subject. If one of you could at least point me in the right direction as far as hardware vs. software that would be great…

So this is an old heat shield for glass blowing and I was replacing the screen on it when the side that usually faces the furnace cracked and a piece fell out, how should I go about fixing this? I have an extra piece of metal sheeting but no way to cut it to the correct size or punch holes in it for rivets, I do have a saudering pen type thing and the piece that fell out of it if reattaching it is a good idea, any advice would be appreciated.

I'm looking to make cement molds over the winter months and sell them at farmer's markets along with my produce. I've looked on the internet and gone to local stores but haven't been getting very good responses. I've got experience working with concrete. Basically I'm just trying to find an affordable place to buy concrete molds. I'm looking for full sized statues not reliefs or prints. The local ceramics stores I've been to have been no help whatsoever. They basically go full on potato when I told them about my project.

Anyone have any idea what kind of ring this is? It's a band with diamonds lining it. It's a little dirty and blurry but if necessary, I can get a better picture. Sorry if this is off topic, /b/ is the only other place this fits.

I need to stay in a room with no light fixtures or lamps. Is there such a thing as a night-light style device that fits full sized light bulbs? I'm trying to travel light, no pun intended, and I'd rather not lug a lamp or a work light with me.

Hello I just found a recipe for making kitty litter out of newspaper. My question is, once the litter is used, is it safe to recycle it again? The way to make it at first is t soak it and crumble it in tiny pieces. But after it's all full of piss, is it a good idea to soak & drain it a couple times to get it off and repeat the process? I was also thinking that maybe I could use lime to reduce it's ph. Do you think that'd work?
