Using Blum Metabox drawer slides would simplify some of the work and possibly reduce the cost. Even better would be, as I've done in the past, and use the hardware stripped out of surplus filing cabinets, like those olive green antiques rusting away in many used office furniture dealers warehouses. I've bought 3 drawer ones for $25. Even the drawers themselves could be used here if the kitchen cabinet is the right width.
A nice idea and execution. I wonder if a square aluminum cake pan would not simplify the process and produce a neater result. I would space the pan off the wood behind, and around the sides, to allow some air flow and help cooling. Another concern I have is with using wood the enclose the controls. The power components, wiring and electronics, even at low voltage, can fail, overheat and burn. A metal box would better contain that safely. A bit of inexpensive fusing could also help relieve any flame related anxiety.
Nice idea - A disk-brake rotor would have made a stiffer adapter that the ceiling fan plate and also a flywheel to boot.
OMG!! Soldering on Li-Ion cells! Overheated cells go POOF, big time. Great if you are trying to earn a new nick-name like "Patch" or "Stumpy". Be smart; buy cells with tabs already welded on.
Actually I put the bait into perforated plastic pill vials that I glue to 10x10cm. pieces of sheet steel. Outside I put a rock on the steel to keep it in place.The "Childproof" lids on the vials make them quite safe but in any case that 5% borax mix is not very harmful to mammalian life in the teaspoon quantity I place in the vial.
Tak, ale pozostawić w nim jakiś vishnick
"release him", really? That sort of defeats the purpose unless you neuter them before releasing.
I make two types of treats for my six-legged "friends". One is a borax&sugar solution and the other is bacon drippings&borax. Some species of ant like sweet, some like fat. Carpenter ants, for example, switch their choice at different times of the year. The trick is to not put in too much borax to keep the taste pleasant. Otherwise they might sicken on the return trip to the nest and getting them to dose the others there is the prime objective. 5% does it.
No - Canadian. We too speak real English :-)
I too had the same problem. I think it has to do with trying to do the layout while looking at the circuit diagram. If you reconstruct the circuit as a ladder diagram you will see the common connections in a more convenient configuration.
If you can POUR your concrete then its too wet and will be weaker that the proper dryer mix that has to be PLACED*.* The proper term

I think that the hardest part will be in finding un-insulated cooper wire and stripping enameled transformer wire is difficult.
I have a couple of these modified and mounted around the house all wired to a scrounged 6 volt emergency light battery pack in the basement. The battery unit originally two tungsten bulb heads on it. The LEDs give much more illumination for a lot longer time. They were still going after a 8 hour blackout.
I have made some similar storage boxes using tongue-and-groove pine planks. No router required. Hardwood flooring scraps would work as well but have limited height.
It takes exactly 1 BTU to convert each pound of water to steam (it is the fact that the BTU unit is based on). That BTU is absorbed in the process and does NOT produce any heat. Weigh a piece of green wood and compare it to its weight after a year of drying - you'll be amazed at the difference. Even "almost dry" wood loses a lot compared to completely dry.
