Hello /diy/! I'm from /v/, but I was told to come post this here.
So basically, I fucking love arcades. I'm even thinking about making my own Mamecab! Did anyone here ever build one? If so, was it worth it? Do you play it often? Please, if you got an arcade cabinet at your home, tell us about it! Also, please give me some tips, that would be really nice!
This thread is also good for talking about arcades in general!

Hey /diy/, I have a bunch of spare time these days and I've decided I want to try my hand at making an electric guitar. The problem is I have pretty much no tools (I own an electric drill, dremel tool, palm sander, circular saw). What is the minimum I can spend on tools to get this done? I think since it's my first guitar and I don't have much experience I'm going to buy a premade neck and just do the body/wiring myself.
What do you think the minimum I need for tools is? I can probably take the wood to a local place to get the shape carved but I'd like to do the rest myself.
For anyone who's build a solid body electric guitar, what tools do you think are required?

Hey guys, I'm thinking of really going all out on my guitar and doing a really indepth design (artfag) but there are a few problems that I'm a bit worried about, and I've looked around and I'm getting different responses:
>finish is applied, I was thinking of sanding it off with a medium grit then a fine grit but I don't know if it'll fuck up
>using acrylic paint, but don't know if oil painting is any better/sticks on well
And if anyone else has tried/done this, please let me know.
>have various carvings in the wood already from a variety of hits and scratches

Hello again, /diy/!
Not too long ago, someone here was looking for help with making a relaiable, functional grappling hook. After quite a few replies, one of you suggested the idea of using rebar and having a professional welder cut one end into 3 equal-sized "hooks".
There was some speculation as to whether or not this would successfully hold human bodyweight, and nobody had a difinitive answer. I don't know anybody who can weld or cut metal, otherwise I would have tested it myself already.
I was wondering if anyone's tried this yet. If so, specs on your hook would be much appreciated.
Pic related. Thanks in advance!

I'm looking for a little bit of insight in getting some better range from my garage door opener. It's actually for a gate but same theory applies. I will say up front that I can't augment the receiver, only the remote.
I'd like to know if it's possible to ground a wire to the roof of my car with a wire that I can attach to the remote, and will this, in theory, extend the signal range a great deal?
My next issue would be that I'm more or less electronics-illiterate, but I did somehow get ahold of a soldering iron if needed.
Pic is the remote. I'm assuming the length of wire labeled "JU1" (sorry for the blurry pic, it's in the top left) is the antennae as it doesn't seem to serve any other real purpose on the PCB.
Any and all help greatly appreciated!

i recently started cultivating mushrooms, and part of the tedious work is pushing the carbon dioxide (i think) out of the tank. my plan is to mount 2 fans at both sides (its a plastic tank) and program the fans to go off every 8 hours for 30 seconds at a time. i did the sketch by just replaceing a few values in the blink sketch, but that is my problem. i am worried that the delay function ( after 4 weeks...) will loose accuracy, and wont trigger within +- a few minutes. i have been tweedling about just getting a light timer, and doing it that way, but id really like it to be an arduino project. also, i was thinking of an RTC, but the only applications i could find an RTC in was a clock, not really a timer... arduino pros needed...
