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.

Winterization HO!

21 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: freezing.jpg]
So, DIY, in an attempt to save a ton of money this winter, I will not be using the gas powered central heat provided on the premises of my spliit house. Reasons: 1a. I do not pay for any electricity. 1b. I will simply buy some small portable space heaters for 3 rooms I occupy mostly. 2. I live on the top floor so all of my neighbor below's heat will simply rise up to me. 3. The windows are straight out of the 1920's; thin, single pane, with cracks and small holes abound. So i would just be paying to heat the outside anyways. I have thus already begun trying to insulate the house in the best ways for the cheapest money possible. I already put up those plastic window seal kits on most of the entire window boxes, save the 2 i want to have the option to open (bathroom, next to bed). This was only 15$ with tax. My next step is some thick, self adhesive foam around the top of my doorway. It is at the lower level with steps leading up to my area, but is more like a landing. More than enough of that stuff was $8 My next step i failed at. Got a couple tension rods that fit at the top and bottom of my stairwells to hang something thick and heavy and act as another buffer from Top>bottom part of the house. Well the shower curtains I bought aren't long enough, and I'm at a loss to find something as insulating, and about 84" or just over 7ft in length including what ever eyelets are used to hang it from the tension rod. Tarps seem too thin and loud from wind, and are usually WAY too big in the other dimension, meaning the width of a doorway. The idea is to put some velcro peices on the wall and curtain itself for keeping it shut and open invariably. I was thinking some thick blankets with big spring clamps holding it to the rod, but i wouldnt want them getting dirty on the stair floor. Is there a more industrial answer to this im missing? tldr; meed thick 7ft long insulating "curtain" to cover tops and bottoms of stairway entrances on a curtain rod.

Was in need of inspiration to make concrete mixer for hard mixes with big aggregate.

Also he makes good quality compressed earth&cement blocks with it (more on his channel).

Restoring axe(black finish?)

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: gransfors-hand-hatchet.jpg]
sup /diy/ Just finished up restoring an old axe my grandmother gave me. To remove all the rush though, i had to soak it in vinegar, and brush off all the residue, which left a shiny steel finish. Id like to get the black finish that most axes have. Does anyone here know how to do that? I'm guessing it comes from the forging process...

/DIY/ Mask making, or where to buy high quality interesting masks. I'd like to learn a bit about the process of making a high quality exceptional mask.. I like a particular style, and want to start a collection. The style is abstract faces, symbolic design. I'll try to post a few so you get the idea. Pic related. I really enjoy a lot of the masks he made. They're great, and I'd like to try to replicate a similar style.

gonna make this simple and quick. i have something connected to pic related. i know the data bus lines are working because they're also connected to some LEDS and they're lighting up as they should. the problem is that the output always (of the opamp) remains a constant 4.11v - doesnt change no matter whats on the digital side. i've triple connected everything. every pin on the DAC is connected except pin1. Vcc is a stable 5.02v 16 is capped to ground 15 is 4k7 -> ground 14 is 4k7-> Vcc 13 is Vcc {12 - 5} is data'd 4 is output -> inverting input of opamp. 3 is bridged to 2. 2 is connecteed to ground. 1 is NC onthe opamp: (F4558) 5 is grounded 6 is DAC output 7 is output, 4k7 feedback into 6. 7 is also connected to the next stage etc. and always measures 4.11v what could it be?

Hey /diy/ I came through a about a month a go I think, but I want to open a Japanese bookstore in my area (there are none for several miles). I need to import books and some manga Wholesale from Japan, but I don't know how to find a distributor.

Can you help out? tl;dr Need to find a wholesale Japanese book distributor/importer I live in Southern California, so I'm not too far from the ports of LA or Long Beach.

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.

I know it's not very pretty, but I built a fence yesterday. As you can tell, I ran out of the proper materials nearing the end (end being the left side). But I'm still proud of myself. This way I can let my Siberian Husky out without having to worry about him running into the road.

Would this structure be possible to make, without gay poles on the outside? I was thinking some of you might know.
