I have just aquired about 160 ft of old climbing rope from my rock climbing gym. It's deemed unusable for climbing on btw, thats why they gave it to me for free. I wanna make something cool with it, preferably something to hang above my bed. Pic related: right now i made it into a rope rug, but pieces are coming out, and would just rather make something else.

do you guys ever have /diy/ gore threads

Hello, I'm considering squatting in a empty building that I found. The building is huge at least 1/2 acre big, but the downside is its on a college campus (even though its a fairly remote part) and the grass looks like it was periodically cut. I was able to explore only a small portion of the building, but I didn't even have to force an entrance since there was an opening toward the back part of it. I haven't tested whether or not electricity works, but I was able to find a circuit breaker inside and I'm thinking that if theres no wifi nearby I'd have to generate my own internet via WiFi server that uses a cell phone card, but converts that to WiFi. Another downside is its difficult to park nearby because oncampus police would see my car in trespassing territory. Should I go through with this or am I better off living in my car. I can post pictures

I'm putting in a washer and dryer in an old closet. Just finished up all the plumbing (pic related). You can probably tell this was my first plumbing project :) I'm about to do the wiring, but I don't know if it should be 110v or 220v (I'm in the USA). The dryer will be gas. Are washing machines in the US typically 110v? Will it be easy enough to get 220v machines?

Bluetooth experience

Okay, /diy/ (No clue what you guys call yourselves) I'm trying to design a simple circuit that will supply power to a small heating element and then stop supplying said power. It's not my first foray into making a circuit, but it's the most complicated one I've ever tried to make. I have several requirements: >Must be compact >Must pair to a smartphone >Must be in a constant state of readiness >Low power consumption >Low (~$40) cost I figured a simple Bluetooth circuit could act like a switch and relay (could it?), and that would solve most of my problems. I'd also like to run it off of a hearing aide battery. Preliminary research says all this should work. I'm asking how you guys would approach this problem, if anyone has any tips for working with Bluetooth, and looking for critiques on my idea. /k/ommando mostly here. I'll dump some stuff to keep this bumped.

Arduino help

Here's a call to anybody with Arduino experience for an easy $50. So I have some arduino code I need help with and soon, so here's a call for anyone with experience to help me. The money will be given via paypal for the completion of functioning code for an obstacle avoidance robot that goes to a predesignated spot before stopping. I already have some code you could make function or you could start from scratch.

I was interested in camping in my car at ski resorts this winter for convenience and first runs. I want to cozy night sleep and had come up with an idea to get that while camping in my car over night. Need input if this is a good or bad idea =\ or feasible at the least. What I came up with in my head was a battery pack that can run a low voltage electric blanket during the night while I sleep. I backpack and sleep in the cold during spring and fall and don't mind a cold face.. but I want a good night sleep before boarding. Idea as of right now.. Under layer: Sleeping mats with maybe a reflective Mylar sheet under it for my under body insulation. Top Layer 1: Low voltage electric blanket (10 hour run time on most I researched) Top Layer 2/3: Down comforter / Fleece / worm blanket of some type. (I sleep in bags while backpacking but I hate the constriction. Want to skip out on bags completely as I will have my partner with me most the time anyways.) ------------------------------------------------------------------ The blanket will be powered by this unit I plan to build my self. It consist of just three parts really. MinnKota Trolling Motor Power Center (empty box for car battery group 24-27, has Built-in battery meter displays current "state of charge", Offers pair of 12-volt accessory plugs and manual reset circuit breakers) >http://www.amazon.com/MinnKota-Trolling-Motor-Power-Center/dp/B001PTHKMG ----- Car Battery (to put into the minnkota box) ----- Power inverter (two outlets ideally) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ This is pretty much as far as I am now. I have no idea how to find out how or if this is feasible on the technical side. If I will have the juice needed to run the blanket all night and hopefully other things like my laptop for movies or something of the sort. The low voltage blanket/s I'm looking at use pull 25vlots max...

Countertop AWG

I came up with this idea yesterday, for a room air filter attached to a peltier junction to produce both clean air, and a source of drinking water (1-3 gallons/week, tops). Larger atmospheric water generators use much the same principles in their function. I'm considering drawing up more viable plans and building this in the near future, but I thought I'd see what people thought of the idea. Waste of time? Pointlessly inefficient? I'm not sure, myself. I don't know a lot about the efficiency of peltier junctions, but I don't think the temperature differential required to produce a dripping of water would be all that much. I would assume that the efficiency drops the greater the differential across the junction. I'm just not a fan of countertop distillers, and I like to use deionized water for my iced tea.

I'm buying a brand new mobile home. The rugs are that shitty cheap cream color. My question is. What upgrades can a man do to a mobile home to get at least most or half his money back. When I'm done paying the sucker off?

Highpower-LED Temperature

Hello /diy/. I want to use a 30W Led in a project but im not sure about the cooling that i will need. Im planing to use something like shown in the picture for cooling. But as the led will need to be on for a couple of hours or even a whole day im not sure if it will work. To play it save i want to monitor the temperature of the led to switch it of if it gets to hot. But my main problem is that i don't know how hot the led is allowed to get. So how hot can i let it become without caousing damage to the led?

Does /diy/ give Christmas presents they've made? I want to make a book safe for one of my friends but I don't have experience doing so. I've been meaning to buy a dremel and I think I'm finally going to pick one up. Any advice for what kind of glue to use on the pages? I like this guy's tutorial (http://youtu.be/Xs7OS2ZYUxM?t=2m32s) and use of velvet, but I don't have any experience sewing; is he hemming the edges for a cleaner look?

Stuffed christmas lights into bottle, but the bottle overheats and my roommate (rightfully) says its a fire hazard. Can anyone think up a clever heat sink design that would put him at ease? I was thinking I could put the bottle by the window and run some copper wiring out of it to the outside air, but it would be cooler to turn the think into a heat source sorta like a fireplace.

What do???

So, /diy/kes, I want to build one of two things: Either a Farnsworth Fusor capable of entering "star mode", or some sort of Soniluminescence lamp capable of producing light visible to the naked eye. See, when my wife and I were still a new couple, I used my super nerd powers (the Internet) to discover that a very bright Iridium flare was going to be visible from our apartment's parking lot about ten minute after she got home from work. So, I told her that I had stolen a star for her, and that after she had seen it, it would vanish because it was HER star, and no just anyone could see it. So, I took her outside, showed her where to look, and right on cue, there was the Iridium flare. Then, after a few moments, it vanished. She was pretty confused, but we had a lot of sex that night, so I think the romance worked. So now, I'd like to give her a "star in a jar". There's no way I'd be able to finish it by Christmas, but I'd like to make her one, and then give it to her for some special occasion. Does anyone have any experience making either one of these? I've very little machinist experience, and don't have access to my own workshop, BUT, I'm a very fast learner, and I'm pretty good with complex things, so I'll be able to pull at least one of these off without accidentally killing or harming anyone/anything. So, any tips, /diy/? >pic related
