I'm looking to mod one of my GC controllers to help me get better at short hopping in Brawl/project M. What I think I need is when the button is pressed it triggers and then stops after 5 or less frames, about .3 seconds I think, regardless of whether I'm still holding the button or not. My initial idea is to have a 555 circuit hooked up to a button like z, so the circuit completes, triggering the timer and the timer will start to cycle after ~.3 seconds breaking the circuit thus registering as me letting go of the button, maybe add an external potentiometer to adjusting for characters with longer or shorter jumps. If I did my math right I should need a 220 uf capacitor and 2 300 ohm resistors to get A .07 second length button press, about 5 frames. Does this seem right or am I way off ? Never made use of a 555 timer before

Relay with Arduino

22 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: SSR.jpg]
Hi /diy/! As part of a larger project, I need to be able to turn a Camco 2500W 240V (10.4A) water heater on/off using an Arduino, and decided that using something like a Solid State Relay will work well. I am unsure about which relay to use, how to power the switching (external or through Arduino?), and possibly the general wiring/coding for using the relay. Cheers!

sealing boards together

Hey guys, I can't find anything on how people make the tops to barrels. I know that just it it out circular, but how to they get them to stay together to cut them? Then how do they apply it to the barrel if they do not have any glue or fasteners or anything?

I want to make a structure out of a composite material and I pick fiber glass because it's cheap. I'm used to working with MPa (newtons per mm^2) but I can't work out how the specifications translate. e.g. http://www.ecfibreglasssupplies.co.uk/p-2702-s-glass-200gsm-6oz-plain-weave-30-aerialite.aspx How much tensile strength would every layer of this stuff + polymer resin give? And about the moulding - would it be fine to cut a piece of wood then wrap the fiber glass around it, sanding it down to a nice finish? Is the wood inside going to be protected from snapping as long as the fiber glass holds?

Are motorhomes nice to live in, /diy/? I always thought they're cramped as fuck, but the pic is from the inside of a Gulf Stream Sun Voyager (http://www.mhsrv.com/2000-gulf-stream-sun-voyager-class-a-motorhome-34-w-2-slides-used-class-a-tx-i9772). It looks spacious and cozy as fuck. In terms of layout, it's about as good as some smaller apartments I've lived in. And this thing sells for 40k, that's really cheap compared to houses of the same size. Why not permanently live in a motorhome? What's the catch? Do the gas costs burn a hole in your pocket? Is it a pain to find parking? Is it hard to heat? Is the maintenance much more expensive than owning a house? I know these are all issues to some extent, but which one is the main dealbreaker? If you wanted a house and only had 40k, this seems like an amazing deal, far better than buying an actual house. How come more people don't just live in them all the time?

Recent DIY purchases

ITT: Recent DIY purchases Post anything you've acquired be it a tool, material or some kind of machine. I'll go first, got a DS2072A on Tuesday, i've been using a shitty $400 chinamen scope for the longest time and its so nice having something that actually works. Have since started working on an old project involving a 800x480 LCD screen and confirmed that the problem is coupled noise on the 16bit data bus causing the controller to shit the bed during initialization, something i simply wasn't able to do with old scope. I'll post some screen shots of me measuring stuff :3

Hey, I have recently bought the pair of boots in this picture but they are a bit loose around my leg, anyone have any idea how I would go about DIYing them into laced boots? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hi /diy/. I'm wanting to build some cubes similar to pic related for live music performance. They will be stacked and arranged in various ways to create interesting lighting effects and heighten the energy of performances at venues. I plan to make these out of some sort of fiberboard with some type of opaque plastic or maybe simply stretch some white cloth across the light emitting side. Either way, I think I can figure out the construction, though suggestions here are appreciated as well. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what would be best for the light source within each box; they aren't going to be simply lit or occasionally change colors. Instead, they should be capable of bright strobe effects and rapid changes to accompany live performances track by track. This will require them to be programmable rather than merely sound reactive, and I'm wondering if you have any suggestions. Philips makes these HUE LED lights that I have used before and work surprisingly well for bright strobes and can be any color imaginable, all programmable wirelessly from a tablet/phone while also being capable of sound reactive functions (different apps unlock different possibilities). However, at $60 a bulb I was wondering if you guys had suggestions for other light sources that might work for this application. I plan to have 8-12 of these cubes to start. Thanks.

i really want to build something open to any ideas. i don't have a lot of money to spend so im thinking average house things(wood wire ) but i have good access to a dump where i can get a hole range of stuff like bikes electronics and other things please if any of you have attempted a project like this feel free to post pictures and so on

Hey /diy so I'm making a small tabletop replica of a sign of a resort for an Xmas gift. It has one light that shines on the face of it. Question: What do I need to buy so it can be plugged into a regular outlet? Bulb size, resistiors, etc? Just wondering what it takes. The sign is going to be about 10" tall so the bulb will be very tiny. I'm assuming its a small list but tbh I am clueless when it comes to electricity. Pic related

ITT: what does /int/ want for Christmas? Material objects are nice but what about those abstract feels you can only talk about here? Tell us what you want most for yourself and the rest of mankind. Juden, Mudslimes and edgy Yuro underage b& are definitely NOT invited. No one wants to hear about how cool you think being a fucking atheist is. Looking at you Norway and Sweden..

Hey /diy/, I have a newbie question for the car stereo wizards. I have an aftermarket amp hooked to a factory radio, which does not include a remote-on wire. There's no power antenna output, either. So I have to hook the remote-on to the accessory power line, which means the amp is on if the car is on, regardless of whether the radio itself is actually on. I would rather the amp remain off unless the radio is on. And no, I'm afraid I can't just slap an aftermarket radio in there. I want to keep a factory-original look. Now, between the radio and the amp is a 4-channel line output converter. High level wires go in, RCAs go out to the amp. BUT! There are also bare wire output terminals on there, right next to the RCAs. I was thinking that maybe I could connect the remote-on to one of those channels, but I'm afraid it would diminish that channel's signal range. I don't know. What do you think? Is it better to leave the amp on full-time (it does have a temperature-sensitive fan back there, just in case), or would it be better to try the speaker channel remote-on? Your advice would be much appreciated.

barrel staves

Hey /diy/ What is the method for cutting logs that will be a barrel? I've heard that you are suppose to go against the grain to prevent the liquid from seeping out. Also, when you treat the wood, what do you put on the ends that wont contaminate the liquids while preventing cracks, or does it not matter since the liquid probably does not touch the the ends?

Howdy /diy/ So for the past little while I've been interested in creating some decoration pieces on my desk at home and today I picked up this nifty glass bowl thrifting. I really liked the shape and thought it would be cool to fill it with something partially opaque and then put a light underneath in the hollow part, allowing it to be illuminated from below. So far I’ve only come up with something like Himalayan salt crystal chunks to fill the bowl, but I was hoping /diy/ may have some other suggestions or ideas. Additionally, what do you think would be the best light for this? I was imaging some small LED with an off/on switch, but perhaps there’s something better.

I recently died in a fire and came back to life. I was fine after a shower, but some of my shit still smells of smoke. Can anyone recommend ways to remove the smell of smoke from items such as a watch, a cell phone and leather wallet? I found some results on google for removing tobacco smell, but I'm not sure if the same applies if you were on a burning building. Pic unrelated, I apologize for that.

What've you done today?

What have you done yourself today /diy/? I spent an hour putting a bevel on my stock removal machete, got dark and had to quit sadly. But I shall continue tomorrow.
