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.

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?

How about a log cabin thread? I'm really interested in cabin construction techniques and styles, one day hope to make my own, but I'd like to see what's possible if you guys have anything to share.

Hey guys, I need your opinion. I've an useless Samsung C3500 (chat 350), qwerty slide keyboard (pic related). And I was thinking if I could do something useful with this. My question is; Can I make this type of keyboard connect with USB? So I could use the keyboard in USB OTG/HOST of Android devices.

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. A simple google search doesn't yield any useful results, and I don't know of any other/better search terms I can use. 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?

painting a swing set cross pole

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.

Hey /diy I've been thinking of getting a grafitti on my wall. Any suggestions? Will the grafitti stay if i paint over it? ie. do i need a wallpaper first? I was doing it myself but i dont have enough experience. It's a big wall. Also any other easy-made cool looking home gadgets are welcome. I have some free time and I need to improve the looks to bring party people.

Thinking of building my own electrical car

34 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Car.png]
Hi /diy/, first time poster here! As the title suggests, I'm thinking of trying to build my own electrically powered (small 1-person) car. It's merely an idea at this point, as my budget is on a diet right now, and my contract at work expires this month. I want to keep it as simple as possible: >Batteries (I wanna be able to have some fun driving around for an hour or so) >Electrical motor(s?) >Simple, relatively lightweight chassis >Simple transmission of some sort >Brakes >Wheels >Steering wheel >Switch for Forward/Reverse driving >Any other small things I might need for keeping the safety level normal A coworker of mine used to be an auto mechanic, and he suggested a 40HP engine for a 400kg car (the weight is just a number I pulled out of my ass. I have no idea how much this thing is gonna weigh, but I wanna keep the weight as low as possible). I don't really know where to start... Where to get parts, calculating what I need, estimations... But I hope I'm able to go through with it someday. What do you think? Anyone have experiences with this kind of thing? Ideas are very, very welcome and I love discussing solutions. I'm thinking something in the lines of the car on this picture, only as small and light as possible so that 1 person can sit comfortably and all the parts fit.

Mold in the Tiles

9 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: DONE HERE.jpg]
Hey Mc/diy/ers I have a pretty frightful problem on my hands. The front door of my house has slowly been smellier and smellier after a period of time, and today I pulled it up and I can say with absolute certainty that something foul has eaten through the wood. The entire front door stop on the inside of my house has this fucking awful black mold. The house I am renting in has a shit landlord and I know he won't ever fix it. Stats: The tiles are those cheap self-adhesive sort. There is a black mold that actually clung and stuck to the floor. It smells like ammonia and brasso. Really bad. The tiles are apparently so old and brittle that they just broke in my hands. These were vinyl tiles. The mold released a wet, suckling noise as I pulled the tiles up. What the actual fuck should I do about this? Pic unrelated.
