Does anyone have a PDF copy of the Ontario Electrical Safety Code (25th Edition)? I've scoured /rs/ and the Internet, but can't find one.

I am assembling a bastard of a 5.1 theatre system. I have salvaged 2 pair of 8ohm speakers from old tv's and purchased a used RCA-RT2870 Receiver. So far the speakers sound odd, they lack low tones entirely. They have no enclosures and are just bare speakers so I assume this is most of the problem and I will fix it as best I can. However I also can not get the subwoofer to output properly. The RT2870 comes as a complete in box system, so it's subwoofer has both the + and - leads as well as something called a "subwoofer control" that is two male prong leads. I do not have their subwoofer so I right now have no sub on the system at all. I have read it's suspected to be a crossover of some sort, but I don't know how to hook up a salvage speaker to this. Anyone with knowledge or advice would be greatly appreciated. So far this entire project has only cost me $20 and it's a nice setup so far. Just need enclosures, a center, and a subwoofer as well as a way to control it and this will be a salvage diy jackpot of a system. pic unrelated.

How does one go about fixing this? It's a piece from my computer chair's armrest. I assume it's some sort of foam plastic/vinyl. Both armrests have this problem. The broken pieces will sometimes jump out of their place as if they're demonically possessed and I'd find the pieces on the floor. I always put them back in because I don't want to see/feel holes in my armrests, but this is occurring more and more frequently now. The chair itself is in great shape even after nearly a decade. It's just these finicky armrests that didn't seem to stand up to my 2/10 wouldn't bang pointy elbows poking the heck out of the foam. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

hi y'all, I want to cut a glass bottle in half and I don't know how to do it. I lurked around a little and I read that termic shock should do the work, but I think that this glass is too thick (approx. 5mm). Then, do you have any suggestions?

Residential Electricity

hey /diy/, normally I am all for the challenge of figuring something out but electricity is something i like to mess with in a closed system that does not include my house. I found this in my attic and want to install another one in my attic for another light and a vent fan. does anyone know what it is? pic related. my mystery item.

I want to make my bullet vibrator vibrate along with the beat of music, is there any way that this would even be remotely doable? I have a little bit of knowledge about electronics, and the best method that I could guess would be some sort of resistor that resisted less the more current was going into it. Anyone know how I could do this?

Ok, I've searched intesively for around 10 minutes on Google and didn't find my answer. What I want is in its spirit a very DIY exercise: modeling things (by hand and some tools) with some sort of very high quality/heat resistant substance. Could be a glue or mass, but I can't find any decent one. I want something that specially will bind to a whole lot of materials, doing so very strongly. It will be also nice to use my Dremel tool to do more modeling. I don't want to use any other kind of auxiliary material (paper, plastic parts), just the mass/glue, and when it dries it does it for good with high durability and resistance. I want to do a lot of things, but currently I want to reconstruct a deformed (from factory) water jet hole on my dish wash machine that is making the upper water spreader stop spinning, because the water jet from the deformed hole is not strong enough. It is probably made of Polypropylene, so not everything will be compatible on fixing this. Suggestions? The answer to this will help me make an unbelievable amount of cool, useful and durable things. I didn't find any communities specialized on this kind of glue/mass modeling, and I can't believe it. Pic related, it's exactly the part I'm trying to fix. I'm also impressed that my machine is the new 2012 model from one of the best brands in my country (Brastemp), and they use the same part as one more than a decade old machine. Fuckers don't even want to develop a new mould.

Do you know a good site/pdf guide to build your house? Not just for planning, something specific which teaches basics and specific things like isolation etc. I lurked diy a lot, at first without interest but now I feel like building a house could be a great idea. Any advices for choosing the land/country? Also, homemade house thread.

Hello /diy/! I have been wondering if anyone knows a way to power a Nixie Tube by using a 220V main, without killing the tube or killing myself. 220V main means around 325V RMS so its a nasty shock. I know that regulated power supplies are a better approach but so far they use hard-to-get materials at least where I live. For example this one: http://www.electricstuff.co.uk/nixpsu.html has amazing instructions but getting the MAX771 is impossible. That's all, I would really appreciate some help. I study electronics but haven't got yet to the part where we play with voltages that could kill you, at most 20 Volts so this is rather new to me. Thanks

Compact portable power?

11 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: hydropak09.jpg]
I own loads of devices for this, it's an obsession of mine. Solar panels, batteries, fuel cells, even a small fold away stove that uses thermal energy to make electric power. But they all output either 5v via USB, or 12v via an automotive style 12v socket. The only reasonably portable power source I have ever found that will fit in a backpack, not weigh too much, and is powerful enough to run an inverter for stuff that needs 120v is just an encyclopedia sized lithium battery with 12v adapter. (Hyperjuice, for laptops) Is this really as good as it gets? I've been looking into alternatives and it seems like the closest alternative are direct methanol fuel cells. They run on a stable, cheap liquid fuel you can refill yourself (instead of having to buy proprietary fuel cartridges, like with sodium silicide). My ultimate fantasy is legal, compact RTGs for civilian use. Something about the size and weight of a 2 litre bottle of soda that can provide enough power for high drain applications like running a camping stove, heating water, running a fridge, etc. Until then, what are some options I'm overlooking? Devices that can source freely available fuel (like the biolite stove/charger) are preferred. Must be something I can actually buy today.

Thermometer and humidity measuring device?

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ludwig_bosendorfer1.jpg]
I have this old piano, similar to the one in the picture, and I would like to automatically control temperature and humidity in the room in order to keep the instrument in good condition (and in tune), since it's even more sensitive than a normal, modern piano. I don't know what thermometer and humidity measuring device that is good for what I need. Even better would be if any of you know how to set it up so that it just keeps my room in a certain temperature and humidity range. Any ideas? Btw. this is in Central Europe, and I live on the 7th (top) floor. The room itself has a water-gas heater, but I also have the electric one.

What's up /diy/ I've been working on making some form of renewable energy, tried copper flashing, output was microamps. How can I make a USEFUL homemade solar cell? (Pic Unrelated)

Function over Form thread

ITT: Share your useful/effective but ugly DIY creations. This thread isn't about craftsmanship. Just raw ingenuity. Pic related. A cable fork I made for running CAT5 cable over obstacles in the ceiling of a warehouse. I got tired of moving and climbing up-down a 15-foot ladder. Now I can run Ethernet in the warehouse ceiling without needing anything taller than a footstool.

Anyone know a good way of building a fake respirator for Halloween? im thinking of getting one of those facemasks used for oxygen at hospitals and gluing some cleaned out cants of tuna to it, but i would still have the problem of making a faceplate.

Work Bench

Hello DIY! Newfag here finally has his own area to build stuff and first step. A work bench! However I was wondering what a good top for it would be. It needs to be heat resistant and chemical resistant ( since I will be messing with stuff such as Sulfuric acid ). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
