Can anybody vouch for the quality of Red Wing's Supersole welt? I was looking to buy my first safety boots from Red Wing on recommendation but I was looking for a Goodyear welt. I looked up what Supersole was and it seems like it's what Red Wing calls its cement construction. Aside from durability, I'm also looking for repairability, since these are relatively expensive shoes. I know dress shoes like Allen Edmonds does this for their Goodyear welt shoes.

Spray painting tackle box

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: hip-roof-tackle-box.jpg]
Hey /diy/, I recently found an old tackle box in my garage and I want to use it to store all my IC's/components for easy travel to and from classes. The thing is that the plastic seems to be powdering, like if I rub it with a damp cloth it stains the cloth with a blue powder. Can I spray paint over this with say a matte black (kyrlon camo paint) and keep it from powdering? Or will that just not accomplish anything? Any other advice?

Any plumbers, pool technicians or people who work with city utilities or anything involving water, I need your help. I thought about asking /sci/ but I thought /diy/ would be the better choice to reach out to first. How do I test my tap water? Test it for anything, chemicals, heavy metals, junk, etc, anything NOT H2O My family and I have been going through some tummy issues, funky intestinal and colon issues, whether it's constipation, diarrhea, and/or bloat etc. I know most of you are thinking "Well, could be you guys just had some bad meat" I know. I know, and this past week I have been running through my head what the hell could possibly be happening and thinking up of reasons. Thing is, we all have drastic diet differences. I've recently been doing a winter cut early, so I've been doing fruit/veggie chunks from a Nutribullet and eating frozen vegetarian meals. Dad eats fast food, Mom eats leftovers, and we all eat either cooked meals or usually from this one local shop. I exercise and have to drink plenty of water, Dad drinks water from restaurants or soft drinks, and Mom drinks bottled water from our tap. Mom has had symptoms the hardest. Going through possibilities, I just want to check off our water supply off the list. Crazy as it may sound, it's one thing that ties us together. We drink and use ice from our tap. It might be our plumbing or refrigerator or something if it's water related. If not, next would be the local shop, but I myself stopped eating there.

Busted radio/amp

3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: radioamp.png]
This little rechargeable Ryobi radio/amp started acting up and wondering if someone can help me diagnose problem. If I have something plugged into aux and turn it on audio cuts in and out about once every second. Some behavior with radio. I noticed that with radio on a little LCD screen lights up and the screen flickers consistently with the audio going in and out- so it seems the whole thing is affected not just the audio. Any thoughts on what I should be checking. Sorry for shitty pic- I'm having trouble getting a clear one because the circuit board is very reflective The blue block on top right corner is where battery plugs in if that helps

Building a universal remote, need to have a "learning port" receiver on it. Trying to decide between TSOP38238 and HX1838, or if there are other, better choices. Availability is an option. Any help? Not sure if this is the right place for this question, but since I'm "doing it myself" I figure I would give it a try.

I want to make my own hard apple cider. My objective is to get drunk for as little cash as possible. Should I put additional sugar in it? Would there be some way cheaper, short of harvesting apples or grapes or building a still? Should I worry about microbial contamination? Is there a better board to put this topic to? TL:DR Hard apple cider

Anyone have experience with pex tubing? I had to cut a big section of a supply line that was copper out of my house. I replaced it with pex. Now all the faucets that are connected to it have a weird smell in the water. It's kind of a chlorine like smell. I went and smelled the left over pex tubing i had and it was definitely the same smell. Is this stuff supposed to stink like this?

Possible lighting for desk

9 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 2013-11-12 16.27.29.jpg]
Hey Guys, I an in need of better lighting at my desk, for some reason every small lamp (very little room as I use a drawing board a lot) they are never bright enough, even with max W bulb. I have about 150 bright white leds, and was thinking of maybe carving a small whole or two, installing leds then using those embedded covers for ceiling spotlights (no idea what they are called but will get pic if needs be) to tidy it up. There is a socket behind the desk and I have an old power supply that I could hide behind it. I have the tools needed, and I have carved many times in woodwork, so I would be able to do it. What do you think? Should I do it? Any help is appreciated, especially with the finishing and polishing it off, I really want it to look good.

Advice wanted. My flat has a fluorescent light in the middle of it. It has four tubes in it and it's incredibly bright. Oppressively so. We never use it, we have lamps. So I want to hang one of those paper lanterns in the middle of the ceiling and the closest power source is this light, so I'd like to just take power from there. Problem is, I don't want them both on at the same time and I don't totally want to disable the big light (you know, in case we want to use it while vacuuming or something). So I think it would be nice to install a dual-throw switch on it. Problem is that I can't really drill a hole in the metal housing for it, the powers that be would not like that. When I move out I've got to put it all back how it was. So I guess the best thing to do would be to mount the switch inside the fixture itself without making any holes, so that to switch between the lamp and the big light I'd have to open it up (it's not that hard to do, there's a latch not screws) but I'm not totally satisfied with that solution. The electrical specifics are no big deal, I've been working with that stuff for a while and I know how to do it. I'm just looking for ideas here on how I can make it nice and clean and something I can easily undo when we move out. Here's a picture of the light fixture.

I want to make a floor lamp out of an old camera tripod that I no longer use. So I'm basically looking for a lamp + lampshade (preferably changeable) with the universal tripod mount, pic related, or make my own one. Any ideas?

Hey doers. I've come to you with a little project. In infamous second son, the chain around the protagonists arm recoils back onto his arm after he's done smacking things with it. It make look like video game magic or whatever, but I'd like to be able to reproduce it. Here's what I'm thinking. A chain, with a pre-formed coiled rod that's woven in the links or attached some other way. When there is an electrical current to the rod, it's rigid, and when the current is halted, It goes limp, allowing the chain to be swung around or drag on the ground. Turn on the current and it returns to it's static state and coils up on your arm, just like in the video game. Is this doable, and what material is it that does the rigid/limp reaction to electrical currents?

Found in the desert, weathered smooth, there is very little rust. Washed and will hand sand quickly. I don't think I need to take the paint off just spraying over it. Am i not considering anything important, before wiping with bleach and painting.

DIY Christmas Gifts

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: image.jpg]
This thread is for DIY Christmas gift ideas since I know most of you motherfuckers are poor like me. I live on my own, paycheck-to-paycheck, so my Xmas ideas this year have to be cheap. Here's what I've got so far for my parents (note that I will be buying other small gifts, but I'm only posting the crafty ones): Mom: >Custom binder with sudokus/crosswords, intended to be done one-a-day (or maybe one a week if 365 individual pages ends up being too much) with a quote/memory and possibly a horoscope on each page. The binder cover will be drawn by me. >Crocheted scarf with cute cat head on either end Dad: >Custom basket of different coffee/tea flavors and other little coffee accessories >??? I need another crafty idea for my dad. He doesn't wear scarves or beanies and he already has a pair of nice leather gloves so I can't really crochet him anything. I've already painted a picture he wanted, so it has to be something else. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, please share any DIY gifts you'll be doing.
