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.

12v car battery trickle charger

I have one that I want to use for a few different non-battery charging projects. Only the charger has some sort of thing that senses when a battery is hooked up to it and only starts charging when one is hooked up. How do I get around this without tearing it open and rewiring shit?

Recieved a lot of land from my great-grandma. It's decent sized but real long and skinny. Would love to build a house on it. I made up this 30x35 foot floor plan. Planning to be 2 story; possibly a basement depending on how much this costs. Only have a $150k budget but my grandpa is VP of a construction company, might labor for free but will still need equipment. It's basically an open piece of land with a tree and grape vine. Will take pictures tomorrow. What should the plan be like? Would love a nice living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms with a nice master bath, and an office. Will probably live in it for a few years then give to my mom.

So, I'm a semi-poor uni student in the third year of uni. After more than two years of living independently, I realized that I don't have any sort of first aid or medical kit apart from basic painkillers and a box of bandaids. I realized this after I got a small second-degree burn on one of my fingers while cooking last week. So I want to make a good medical kit from scratch, and have it stocked well and provide for any event short of actually immediately needing a doctor. It doesn't have to be crazy or portable like one of those bug-out bags kits, it just has to be good. I'm putting those pre-made first aid kits out of the question since they seem to be $30 for shitty gauze, a bandage, three individually-wrapped painkillers, a 5ml bottle of disinfectant cream, and a fancy-ass bag with a logo. None of that bullshit. This is going to be over-the-counter stuff, though. So my current planned list is as such: >Tylenol, Advil (for pain, inflammation) >Gauze pads, ranging from 5cmx5cm to 15cmx15cm, 5 of each type >Bandages/dressings, to hold gauze in place or help support a sprained joint >Band-aids, ranging from small to relatively large, as well as butterfly bandages >Disinfectant cream, for cuts and scrapes (what type, though?) >Burn cream (again, I don't know what type is best) >Medical tape (that shit is so goddamned handy) >Tweezers, Scissors, thermometer >cotton swabs, q-tips I'm not really sure what brands of products to get (particularly in creams) because my parents were a bit, well, "natural" and just used their snake oil treatments, so I didn't learn jack shit about taking care of myself medically using actually effective treatments. It's a miracle I'm healthy and in one piece. Price is important, but not really. I'm willing to save up and not skimp on things, so long as it's worth it. Still, no sense in wasting money.

External diameter of rocket must be no less than 60 millimeters 5. Recovery by a 15 inch diameter parachute 6. Gross liftoff weight of no more than 650 grams 7. Rocket motor total impulse limit of 80 N-sec

Zener Diodes and Energy

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: DSCN0293a.jpg]
I've been messing around with salvages PCB parts and made this Zener diode energy collector (bad name, what should it be called?). It converts light and other energy sources into electrical energy. This image shows it converting energy from an old CRT monitor into a little bit of voltage. Sunlight does pretty well with this thing too. I found their was more energy made when the screen was mostly black with edges of lighter color. Fully black and fully white made less than half as much energy. It is such a small amount of energy regardless of the source. Are there any practical applications for this? Perhaps they could be treated as light-detecting diodes?

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.

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.

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!

My washer is broke and I am in over my head a bit

I have an ancient Maytag model a613 series 10 and it just stopped draining one day. I have googled what I can and mostly just found parts lists. My problem is that I don't know which of the parts are messing up. For a while it would try and fill up if I positioned the dial to the beginning of a fill stage and then agitate or if I hit the reset setting on my fill guide then stop at the spin stage. Everything I found said that the if the motors that power the functions in the cabinet are out then the timer will still go on so it has to be in the control side of the washer. My problem is that I dont know if it is my fill sensor or my timer. I would replace both of them but at that stage it would be cheaper to just go buy one since the water level control is sixty and the master is either seventy five for the motor or one hundred fifty for the whole piece. If it is either the master control motor or the water level control it is worth the save but not if I need to drop one fifty or more on it. I can buy a decent used one at those prices locally. My ask if you have any advice for me. Oh I also found a site that said something about a siphoning problem but I tested everything they said and it didn't help. Though I am willing to try all of these things again plus anything else you might think that I missed in my lack of knowledge on the subject. Attached is the image for how to take the master control off of the panel housing.
