Hey /diy/ I want to make my bike more puncture resistant. I bought tire liners and slime tubes but I also wanted to get some old tubes and put those in between the slime tube and the liner, two spare tubes to be more specific. Any ideas of how I should go about doing this? Any better ideas?

I want to make a pumpkin keg for a Halloween party, Ive seen videos on making one with beer but i would rather do one with vodka and let it sit for a while to have some pumpkin flavored drink, any ideas on how to go about this? I was thinking about just letting a gallon of vodka sit in the pumpkin for a day and maybe it would work but i really have no idea what I'm doing here.

Hey /diy/ I need some advice. I work at a apartment complex doing grounds and I often find working or broken electronics (Virus filled laptops that people throw away because they're slow, hard drives, keyboards, LCD monitors, etc.) I'm looking for things to do with tons of working computers. I thought about making some kind of super computer network using gentoo but what could I actually use it for? Aside from the working stuff, what can I do with the broken stuff? Any art project ideas? >Picture isn't me, but the scene in my apartment is very similar.

anyone homebrew here? I'm working on a batch of hard cider. I'm not using any kind of respectable setup, just a gallon of sweet, a couple packets of wine yeast, and lots of added sugars. Did it last year and it turned out pretty well. Any clue what kind of abv I can expect after 4 weeks of brew time?

Hey I'm making a vacuum former for thin plastic and hoping someone with some experience can answer a couple questions. A little info first the frame and platen is about 22" x 16". I'd like to be able to form up to 0.13" plastic. As far as vacuum sources I have a few options. 1) 5 peak HP shop vac 2) Dyson DC12 house vacuum 3) Vacula coolant evacuator (air lift) running at around 150 psi. My questions follow, 1) Is 0.13 even feasible for a homemade rig with my dimensions and vacuum sources? 2) Which is the best vacuum source from my options? I've read a lot of conflicting information in regards to a vacuum sources ability to move more air in comparison to how many in/Hg it actually pulls. 3) Does halving a vacuums flow double it's suction power in in/Hg. IE the shop vac has a 2 1/8" diameter hose but I notice most people run a 1 1/2" platen hole? Why is this? Thanks

Need some advice. I've got a van load of these table tops that I can sell pretty easily if I stick some nice white legs on them. I've done two but my methods are little slow. I'm morticin and tenonin straight frame legs on them with a home made router table and a chop saw that wont cut quite straight. So basically I need to know what kit would be best to purchase that I can tenon, mortice, cut straight and maybe do a bit of accurate profiling with. For around $700? Kisses x

I'm looking for piping/tubing between one and one and a half inches diameter that can be super easily bent and be held in the bent position easily (or stay that way) It's for redirecting airflow, it doesn't need to be robust Any suggestions? The clear tubing I was able to find was way too springy and stiff.

Electronics engineering student here, school project time, we are supposed to use diodes and make a proyect that its supposed to be helpful and usefull along our careers, it doesnt have to be complicated as long as we design it Since the mains at some labs (a bit old some of them ) are giving up to 137 volts and at home at night the mains voltage can go up to 132 volts i decided to attemp to use a zener diode as a voltage regulator So a portable voltage regulator, this way if i decide to plug it at the lab or at home and be absolutely sure im using 127v when its plugged instead of 137 or more however i still dont understand completely how power and current relation works, i do know P=VI So at school this would look something like this P=(137)(X) X being whatever current the load needs to work however how can i know how many watts does the resistor to protect the zener diode has to be for this AC aplication if i will never know how much current the load of my breadbord circuits will pull so how can i make this without knowing that ? also, i tried looking for a 127v Zener diode and i did not find any so in the end i ask Do 127v zener diodes Exist? (already tried newark, mouser and digikey only found 120v and 120v zeners) How can i improve this,? mostly any feedback or corrections pic semirelated, (same application but DC), what i want to do just take out the transformer, rectifier bridge and the capacitor

I am renting a garage that has no power or overhead lights. So I installed 3 15' led strip lighting on the ceiling.(http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EHHLD8/ref=pe_385040_30332190_TE_M3T1_ST1_dp_1) The led strips are rated 12 volts/2 amps. My power source is a 12 v car battery that I got from a friend. Currently I have the strips attached to wires that I run to a pair of jumper cables. The jumper cables are attached to the battery leads. I am not very knowledgeable about electricity and wanted to get advice. I'd like to install a switch. Currently my only way to turn on/off is removing the jumper cables clips from the battery.

sup /diy/ I have access to various tools and materials for woodworking and electronics. I also have access to knowledge of both (and other stuff) Problem is, I don't have any ideas of what to make. Any ideas for cool projects I could make? Could be anything. Possibly some /tg/ related stuff.

Electric help

So I want to run enough electricity (only enough to power a laptop and charge a couple phones) from a standard wall outlet 300 ft to a shed type thing.Its mainly flat ground, and one small hill. I was thinking of burying pvc pipe with a wire inside underground. How much would 300 feet of pvc pipe and 300 ft of wire cost? Would this even work? How much more would it cost to get it done professionally? Thanks! PIC UNRELATED

Good afternoon! What does /diy/ recommend as the best fabric/material for a slipcover for something smaller than a couch? I'd like for it to be white, not shit-grade, but able to be washed/fixed if anything gets on it. Thanks in advance-

Patio roof

14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: roof1.png]
Hey /diy/ I would like to build a roof to go over part of my patio. I would appreciate some wisdom/insight. I have provided a rough mockup and color coded it in case I am retarded and referring to things by the wrong name. The white is my house wall (brick), red is patio(brick, concrete & stone slabs), green is grass. I will attach a ledger made of 2" x 6" (x 4.5m) to the wall with anchor bolts. The front posts (light blue) are 3" x 3" (x 2.4m). They would be secured in the soil with fence post spikes (possibly upgrade to concrete, but assume no). The beam going over the front posts (and all the other dark blue rafters) will be 2" x 4". The joists (yellow) will also be 2" x 4" (x 2.4m), attached to the ledger with joist hangers, and the front beam by half lap joints(ends) and cross lap joints(middle), and secured with angle brackets. The rafters cross the joists with cross halved joints. The supports (pink) are 2" x 4" and just secured with screws. Polycarbonate sheets will cover the top. I have done some woodwork before, but nothing on this scale, so I have a number of questions about the execution and effectiveness of this plan: 1. Will it be too heavy for the ledger or the posts to support? 2. Are anchor bolts the right thing to use, and if so, is 6 enough (ie 1 between each joist or 1 either side of a joist)? 3. Will cross halved joints reduce the structural integrity of the joists/rafters(enough to be a problem)? 4. Will it survive strong winds? 5. If the polycarbonate sheet extends 30-40 cm beyond the frame (over the grass) will it be likely to snap in the wind at some point? 6. The ledger position is fixed due to obstacles, giving the roof an approx 7 degree slope. Is this too little/much? Does it not matter at all? 7. There is a gutter ~6" above the ledger. There will also be a length of wood flush with the top edge of the ledger(but thinner). Do I need to worry about flashing?

Hidden Gun Holster In Dashboard - Any tips?

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 2011-740i-Interior.jpg]
Hey guys! I am thinking about installing a holster into my car. I want the holster to be concealed, until an electrical activation opens a compartment and reveals the gun. I have found a link that might be of interest to such a project. Electrical pistons; http://www.frightprops.com/linear-actuators/linear-actuators-assemblies.html Those guys actually produce a lot of cool stuff. And they have a lot of relevant things for this project. Does somebody got any suggestions on where to put such a thing? Have any of you done something similar, and have some tips and tricks? A other thing, would a professional be able to add custom voice-commands to my car? For example; If I said "Glock" it could activate the compartment and show the Glock? That would be so cool.

Hey /diy/, could you help me figure this out? Pic related is a schematic for wiring an Arduino to an EEPROM for reflashing purposes. Pic related is also a revision of the original diagram, which is here: http://www.flashrom.org/images/c/c4/Serduino-v2_bb.jpg Now, as per the circled areas in pic related, I am having trouble understanding what they are, they do not appear in original diagram. Could /diy/ help?

to repair a ceiling

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: outdoor-with-rustic-wood-ceiling-an(...).jpg]
Hi 4chan. my dad made a rustic ceiling for a terrace that later on and for no particular reason later on turn in a room. that was more than two decades ago. i assume my dad has forgotten what exactly he did or probably was helped by some construction guy, the thing is that my dad teared a layer of asphalt and a layer of some tissue looking material some years ago because he thought he knew what he was doing and added some white plastic paint that failed completely to make the ceiling water proof. the upper part of the house is no longer used by anyone because my mother fell once and they decided to move downstairs because she said she was going to die and some bullshit, now the upstairs is falling apart and quite dirty i just returned from the uni and i would like to return upstairs because im tired of listening to SCI all nights and being in a tiny hot room that people use to change clothes. so i would like any compasive soul to tell me what i need to waterproof the ceiling, it is somewhat like the one in the picture, tables with some concrete on top. please tell me anything i might need to know. i need space :(
