Hey /diy/! My next project is going to be a boombox. Casing is gonna be 3/4 mahogany plywood since i got a shit-ton of it. I have four speakers from a broken boombox, around 5-7" diameter. I was hoping to have at the least a 3.5mm input, a cd player, and a fm radio. I could easily achieve all three of those inputs with a car stereo but i'm wondering if its better to use that or a car amp and separate devices installed within the casing and a rotary switch to select them.

I am installing a dimmer switch for a lamp I am building. The lamp's structur will be metal. The dimmer switch I've got also comes with a ground wire. Do i need to ground this wire if the all of the other connections will be capped and taped? Thanks

Thanks for reading.

Hot water system

6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1389497882853.jpg]
Hey sup /diy/ ! I live in a third world dump and needless to say , the techniques they user here are from the previous century or so. Ok so here's the deal. The hot water system in my house is kind of primitive. Its a tank made of beaten copper and its heated by an immersion heater. The immersion heater itself is nothing but a coil of solenoid shaped Nichrome wire wrapped around a porcelain core. We just take two connections from the mains and stick it inside. No thermostat or grounding. So far it does the work , but I guess its extremely wasteful and inefficient when it comes to energy consumption. Also , it needs a high enough voltage to work properly , which isn't available here in the winter. Also , the coil wastes away over time due to corrosion and its an absolute pain in the ass to change the coil. What kind of modifications should I make to the heater to make it either : 1. Efficient in terms of heating capacity Or 2: Stop or slow down the corrosion of the coil Energy consumption doesn't matter coz electricity here is almost free. Also, could you guys point me to some resources where they show efficient builds of a heater. Stuff I found on Google was.. Well.. Unsatisfactory

So I've got a tube of grease that I'm going to be using on several projects but I don't need to fill any zerk fittings or anything like that so I don't have a grease gun. How should I store this stuff once I open it? Little bit of plastic wrap and a rubber band enough of should I try to get a cap or something? Its a 14 ounce tube so that should last me years but I don't want it to dry out or get contaminated on me.

Synth construction?

8 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Quetzalcoatl_telleriano.jpg]
So, I'm a complete noob at electronics. I know basic circuitry from physics class, but that's about it. I'd love to make a cheap synthesizer, but I have no idea how to do it. All the guides I've found assume a base level of knowledge that I lack, and wikipedia/google aren't really helping out. I've checked out Instructables, Ehow, and hackaday, as well as buildasynth.josephfosco.com. Building the case shouldn't be an issue, I just need to get all the guts functioning properly. Tips, videos, instruction lists would all be greatly appreciated. Pic, while sweet, is unrelated.

Where to find timber, sydney??

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ww.jpg]
Hello /diy/, I come from Sydney, Ausatralia and am in the process of creating a 3 piece drum set. I know the ways I am going to construct each drum, but I am struggling to get timber. Does anyone know where I can find small amounts (1 maple or birch slab, and 2 sheets of maple ply bigger than 1200x1200mm)? Help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Massage Business

14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Massage.jpg]
I'm planning on starting a massage business in my dorm room for some extra money. I'm a fairly tall and muscular guy and a lot of my girl friends ask me for massages all the time. I figure I can get an actual job on campus and look up massage techniques and practice first. Once I get a lot of good stuff down I'll start rolling in actual appointments for people. My dorm has a large amount of center space and I can easily fashion a massage table from the uni's workshop, extra memory foam pads, etc. I'm no business major or master masseuse, so I need some basic help I can't find on google. Are there any laws against me running a little entrepreneur job in my dorm doing massages? If this counts as a business, will I need some sort of license? Thanks in advance.

Making an engagement ring with silver clay?

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: AS6SLO07G.jpg]
Has anyone ever played with silver clay? Can you really make jewelry that won't be susceptible to easy damage? I want to make a silver engagement ring of my own design, but I kind of feel bad about wanting to go to a professional with it. I am making my own design, but still I'm not the one making it. That's why I'm wondering if it's worth it to /dim/ and create something I've done 100%, or if it's safer to let someone else make something that will hold. Opinions?

Ah that wonderful feeling when you realize you have a perfectly good 12V power source in your living room to test a car amp you just rebuilt instead of dragging in the 12V monster from the garage.

Hey /diy/. I just recently bought a 1985 Mazda RX-7, and I'm getting around to ironing out some of the kinks. It came with a leather interior, and as can be expected, the seats are a bit rough. I came here rather than /o/ because I assume people have more upholstery experience here. Anyway. I have some pictures of the passenger seat (currently in the car) and an extra driver's seat that the PO had (currently in my basement). There's also a second passenger seat that has no tears which I could find, however it seems that the frame is deformed (one of the mounting rails is at an angle). The current driver's seat is pretty bad though, so that can't stay in the car. I was hoping that you guys could tell me if they're salvageable,and maybe some hints if it's easy enough to pick up. Photo dump commencing. >bottom of current passenger seat

Mic pair adjustable aiming wire

11 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: wm61a.jpg]
Hello /diy/nosaurs, I am making a stereo pair mic using wm61a capsules similar to pic related. I would like to create a flexible aiming wire to easily adjust angle/spacing etc. A clothes hanger seems a bit too stiff (I'd like to avoid using plyers for fine adjustments) and pipe cleaners too weak. Anything suggestions for inbetween?

I just want to start by saying I'm pretty clueless when it comes to TV antennas. I live in an old house and we've had Foxtel (cable TV in Australia) ever since we moved in. I recently bought a TV for my bedroom, but couldn't find an antenna connection anywhere in the house. I was worried because I couldn't see an antenna on the roof, but I ended up going inside the roof and finding one. Anyway, I found pic related cable coming through the floor in the living room, behind one of my couches. When I was looking at the antenna it had a very similar cable coming off it and a more familiar coaxial cable. I'm not sure where the coaxial cable runs to. Is the cable in the pic some kind of old antenna cable I've never seen before? If it is, what is it called? Is it redundant or can I simply run it to my room and use it? Sorry to bother you guys with this, but I don't know what that cable is or what it is called. All my Google searching for antenna cable is just coming up with coaxials.

Hi /diy/, I have a quick, simple question that I was hoping you could advise me on I have a pair of Raybans just like in the picture attached; I already used a penny to scratch off the Rayban logo on the glass lens; but now I was hoping to get rid of the silver on the top right and left of the front (not the logo) I'm afraid of using a chisel or something to break them off as it may scratch the frames, or there could be an indentation in the plastic from where they were originally set. I was thinking that my best option would be to paint over them, but in the past when I've tried to paint metal similar to it the paint never can get a good even coat and the silver peers through. Would you recommend I paint them black? What paint should I use? How can I make sure that no paint gets on the frames and lens (without using painters tape to just cover the glasses)? I really appreciate your advice on this matter, I know it's not something badass like making my own engine/homestead, but I really like these glasses. Thanks Anon

Hey there DIY, I was wondering if you knew of any all purpose glues that could hold shit together like cement? Regardless of the surface. I do a lot of things around the house/with my car due to both being fairly old, and often times therell be issues that could just be fixed with glue. But my fear is one day itll pop off, or get wet, etc. So does DIY know any sort of glue/adhesive that could basically weld things together no matter the surface? If there isnt something like that, is there any suggestions of more specialized glues to buy for certain situations? I only have a home depot, lowes, and ace hardware around, so if they sell the suggestions too thatd be amazing. I tried google, but most of the results were hot glue or epoxy. I think epoxy is toxic/bad for you? And hot glue wouldnt mix well with the random things i need adhesive for pic related, i have no idea what im doing

Where to buy solder online etc. now

So, apparently every single electronics shop that used to be in my area went out of business or something haha. I used to be able to get capacitors, solder, solder wick and things like that here, but after picking up the DIY electronics bug again I find that all of the places that used to carry the things I like no longer exist. You can get shitty lead free super thick solder at places like home depot, but I wanted more choices. What is a good, reliable place to get soldering equipment and components now? Where do you shop online? I'm in the US.
