Recenty ive beem watching alot of home and shed building videos, and I have been wondering why in these type of constructions they use nails so much. If you take away the cost fact of nails vs screws and you also take away the extra seconds of screwing vs nailing then what is the advantage of nails over screws? Any contractors or people with knowledge on the subject care to enlighten me? Also dumping with random junk

Blood & Gourd: A Halloween Graphic Novel

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Photo-10_9_13,-8-1.00.40-PM-2.jpg]
After three long years, our 100% organic, GMO free graphic novel has reached the crowd-funding stage through Kickstarter. It's a labor of love that incorporates everything we love about classic horror comics, movies, and everything in between. The premise is murderous pumpkins and assorted Halloween horrors attacking the capitol of Washington State on Devil's Night. It begs the question: how exactly would hipsters, baristas, organic farmers, skater punks, roller-derby chicks, bleeding heart liberals, and gun-toting right-wingers save the world from perpetual Samhain? Whether they succeed or not, it makes for an interesting read. Anyone who has ever tried to self-publish anything knows how hard it is to get the word out. So please, check out the site and spread the word if you dig it. Thank you so much and Happy Halloween! Kickstarter: Blood & Gourd

Sorry if this violates the no weapons rule, but how easy would it be to put together some reasonably realistic prop guns from sheet metal and tubing? Pic related looks like it would be relatively simple I have no real experience with metalworking outside of high school shop class years ago and have never welded so I'm wondering about the practicality / ease of cutting + bending + fastening the sheet metal into something that looks reasonably like my pic I found nothing on google about doing something like this

DIY catfood

9 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: crcatlady.jpg]
Sup /diy/, i must to confess, that my mother it crazy cat lady. She has approximately 20 of furry faggots. Problem is that in my opinion she cannot feed them properly (being common russian poorfag): too much vegetable matter in food, carbohydrtes, salt irritates their digestive system and they shit all day long everywhere, also the cats are always hungry because, you know, they cannot digest carbohydrates. Dry cat food is cheap but its packed with carbohydrates and useless plant mass, also, same brands has (much) worse quality in colonies which russia is than in 1st world countries. Natural meat is too expensive here: whole pig carcass costs about $5 per kg@local farmer, while old ladies get $300/month retirement pensions :/ So my plan is to make friends with people in villages surrounding this town, who rise some cattle for sale and negotiate super low price for offal, skin, heads, liver, etc while winter is coming and they are slaughering the cattle. Then process it with powerfull blender, dessicate in vacuum dessicator. Want to hear opinions on general composition of catfood, such as put skin or not, use pork or not, blood, heat treatment, enzymes etc.

Where's the obligatory Homebrewing general thread?! It's a Friday night, what do you guys have going, what questions do you want to toss about, and what are your brewing plans (if any) for this weekend? My mead (Storm the Castle Fast recipe) is just about at the 3 month mark (a month has been spent dropping out sediment in the refridgerator). Over this past month, the changes have been VERY distinct. It started off extremely pucker-inducing, but has become very very mellow. I'd almost go so far as to say it tastes a bit watered down. Is this normal? I know around this time mead really undergoes rapid flavor changes. Might it bounce into something that's a nice level of no pucker with a fuller body of flavor? I'm also debating backsweetening with some honey. Might that be a good idea, and if so, how should I do it without the globbing together and falling out of solution? This even happened to me and my buddy during our own fermentations. Also considering ordering some different yeasts. Any suggestions? I used good ol' grocery store Fleischman's (Yes, go ahead and laugh. It was my first laugh) but would be interested in getting a higher ABV, and I imagine flavors will be better with other strains. Any suggestions for mead? I also have a coffee wine that's cold crashing which wasn't half bad (al beit, not super great) when I tasted it a couple of weeks ago. I don't want to do too much testing on it, though, because a decent chunk already evaporated out during primary fermentation (I found that really odd), or was lost in the racking off of sediment from cold crashing (the sediment was really loose so I had to leave a little wine behind). Any suggestions on things that can be added to liven it up a bit and make it better? I'm kind of debating pouring in coffee grounds again and 'cold brewing' again to reinforce the coffee flavor that slipped away. I tried a little vanilla flavoring as well, but added too much for the small amount I had.

Hey /diy/, Anyone into robot/animatronic building and programming? I tried doing this thread on /g/, but it seems nobody there really cares about stuff like these. I am studying Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence and I'd like to build my own R2D2 robot (mostly because it has a fairly simple design and many people have done their own, so there is support) as my first robot. I am a beginner, though, and never attempted to build anything other than toy/lego robots. I will follow this tutorial: > r2d2-robot [dot] blogspot [dot com] up to a point. I am still undecided if I should use arduino or a raspberry pi (leaning towards the second one). Would it be a good idea if I installed Debian on the Pi, put a wifi dongle, so it has internet connectivity, on it - a cheap webcam and connect it to a cheap projector via hdmi? Thus, I will be able to skype call people via the R2D2 and have their faces be projected on the screen by it (or a video or games or anything else). I would extend the usb slots- via a usb hub and usb extenders - and mount them to the front body of the machine to make them more accessible. I want it to be able to be controlled by a wireless controller but also to have some intelligence of it's own (webcam vision, motion tracking, path finding, being able to follow me around one way or another). Also, a retractable robotic arm (like the authentic R2D2) would not be a bad idea either. As for the body contruction and painting, I have an artist friend who is specialized in special effects, so he could help with that. Do you think such a project would be too complicated/ambitious? How much will it cost? >General Robotics thread

Hello dear /diy/ermakers, I have an old Hitachi CM751ET, 15 years old, and still up & running. My only problem is he's making like a cricket noise from inside. Do any of you could have like an idea of what is producing this sound ? How could I get on cutting it ?

Hey /diy/, I'm in need of some help. I dug out my old GBA (AGB-001) and it works ok except for the power switch which is kind of loose. When the GBA is powered on and i accidentally touch the switch a little the screen either flickers or the gba turns it self off although the switch still says 'on'. Anyone have any experience with this kind of issue? Would it be enough if I made some small modification to make the switch more stiff or do I need to solder something? Pic related

Hi /diy, I wanna find some hobby which could give some result (I don't mean money but something touchable). I'm thinking about bookbinding, cause I have access to a very old library, and some books there really need a new cover. Is it difficult? How much and which tools have I to buy? Is there any bookbinder? Waiting for your answer, /diy. picrandom

Hello. Can I paint a fibreglass surface with acrylic paint ? And do I need to put something into a plaster mould to pull out a fiberglass object out of it without problem ? In this video the guy doesn't put anything https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jm2i2zxV1I If so what release agent should I use ?

Share some stories, strategies or just some opinions om the subject. >story to get it started I am thinking of abusing the estate market that has been climbing in Norway for a loong time. While it is still possible. planning and being a project leader and build new houses / appartments then renting them out. Currently there is more money in renting out an appartment then selling. You usually get more(depending on where you live) from the rent-takers then you pay for the rent on a full loan on the house. Then rather sell it again when the value has gone up. Using cheap labour of course like polich people. I honestly think they work harder and faster then most norwagian carpenters. They they lack a little bit of quality.

Hi /diy/namos, I have a robotics question from a pants-shitting retarded level of ability. I would like to build a series of little baby robots that can be attached to a drum set, plugged in, and play via MIDI signals. The intent is to make them velocity sensitive to affect a nuanced sound out of them. I've googled for sure, although not deeply. I HAVE found that it's mainly the world of robotics people and not musicians, so the idea of having a velocity sensitive MIDI reader that outputs gentle or hard hits doesn't matter much to them. For a general one, I see an instructable to attach some arduinos to some car door actuators, which seems like an excellent jumping-off point for what I'm thinking. I'd be willing to heap Arduinos on top of each other to make something like this happen, or...you know...come up/read up on a better version. I guess my question is if there's functionality in Arduinos or more accessible technology for more than an on/off signal to a motor? I'm going to assume there's gonna be a jugular attack on me for this post, which I'm cool with. I tend to lay into a shitposter and help them in the next line, so I'm hoping I'll get a little of the same treatment here. I have a decent flowchart of data going in my head for this project, but I'm now at the viability crossroads. Also, I'm fucking sick of not having a drummer. Thanks guys/girls(yea right girls) pictoor not related, but now my go-to for humor's sake.

Experiences with wall furnaces?

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: dv55.jpg]
Hello, I am looking to see if anyone has had any experience with room heater wall furnaces like the one pictured? I remember my aunts place in San Diego California had one that was WWII vintage and made the house hotter than hell. Understanding that her Cali house had no insulation or storm windows or anything I'm certain that her house was a huge energy hog. On a 55 degree SanD morning she wouldn't be happy unless the house was at least 80 degrees. Now I ask because I want to add heat to a few unheated places where I don't have the time/ability/money for a air furnace or water boiler, I have found a supplier that I can get such wall furnaces from for under $500 each (new scratch/dent) But since I've only ever seen these in use in S.California and N.Florida... I'm not certain how they'd compare to Southern Ohio, even at 40,000 BTU. The units I am looking at are fan-forced heat and are from EMPIRE which apparently makes them in Illinois. Thanks

Need help with an Ikea hack. I want to make a hybrid of these two: 1. http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/12/expedit-computer-desk.html 2. http://diy.blogdig.net/archives/articles/June2013/11/Expedit_Desk_with_Hutch.html#0188826785b3a280d5def6e251442c74 Here are the components: A: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20116071/ Bx2: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80135298/ Basically I want to build link #1 and make a hutch with another expedit 2x2. Is this doable? In link #1 the shelf seems to be taller than the table by a few cm is there a more practical way to fix this than the screws the OP uses? Also It'd help me a lot if you guys can list the tools I'll need for this since I'm not much experienced in diy.

So i have this pair of yellow leather shoes which looked dirty, and rubbing a damp rag over them wasn't working so i rubbed them with paint thinner. The regular glossy surface of the leather turned dull. Any ideas how can i restore it?

I expect some of you may have some locksmithing experience. I called a locksmith to open my car and possibly make a trunk key (latch doesn't work key in trunk). After he opened the car I was able to remove the back seat and unscrew the paneling between me and the boot and got the key, but he had ordered and paid for stuff relating to the key, when I told him he got kinda pissed and huffy. I finished getting my keys out and tried to use them but viola they don't. My key is old and my trunk lock is shitty, but I have had trouble, but never failure. I had heard the locksmith fiddling around but it could have been with the forms/papers and tools. I am worried that he might of deliberately damaged the lock. Possible?
