Oh, yes!Thank you!
Starting at the "You" drop-down, then selecting Discussions and then Questions, I get this:http://www.instructables.com/member/Kiteman/questi...Still, it would be nice to have an overall summary at the top;Asked / Answered / % Best Answer
You're welcome - don't forget to share your finished project!
Here is an SVG file of the basic parts, with a screenshot of the ECP file so that you can see how many of which parts to duplicate.
ECP files are used by laser cutters.In my case, the laser cutter software is LaserCut 5.3
We have a "Be Nice" policy here. If you want help, you will please observe it.You have given no useful details, like the size of your jar, and the actual techniques you have used to charge it (such as what voltage your supplies were).Start by looking at other people's Leydon Jar projects; http://www.instructables.com/howto/leyden+jar/Search hard enough, you'll find my version, which includes instructions on charging it...
It's a website version of the sort of thing you get in the "small ads" of a newspaper.Have a look: https://www.craigslist.org/about/sites
Have you tried putting an ad on Craigslist or similar?
RC might not work so well under water. You may want to fit tracks to an ROV;http://www.instructables.com/howto/rov/
Wood works because damage shows up as marks - it shouldn't take much work to find a thickness that is of equivalent strength to bone.Doing? You're beating the seven kinds out of a dummy, as you said.Joints are required because they affect the way energy is transferred around a body - a rigid structure could have shock-damage a long way from the point of impact, a joint might illustrate a whiplash effect etc.
Oddly, I had this same conversation with my youngest son.We decided that a good budget option would be broom handles, cut to length. Simple joints could be made by inserting eye-bolts into the ends of the dowels and connecting with wire or paracord.
I'm guessing Troy just needs to type faster...
Soft kites like this are basically indestructible, so I tend to fly them down onto the ground so they land upside down. Hook the handles over a dog stake (see picture - always a good investment for a kite-flyer), and the wind will hold the kite down while you walk down to it and unhook it from the flying lines.
Oh, and for the folding, stand with your back to the wind, hold one end, flip the bridles on top and just roll it up - do the neat folding at home, indoors.
As others have said, you sometimes need to wait a day or two. Silly question, though; does the URL of your project have "real words" in it, or a jumble of random characters?
This is nice - the game it's based on is called Molkky.
Or you could just get a snake - one wipe with a warm damp cloth, all skin parasites gone...
This is the very first thing this member has posted - I smell a homework task.I don't know if it's a coincidence, but I've had a number of PMs in the last couple of days from new members asking how my projects work. Maybe there's a teacher from a particular school using the site as a resource? (Which I think is cool, BTW.)
The first thing to do is to find out what other people have done.Search the site, read other folk's projects, put yourself a parts list together and then get online to price it up.Don't forget that you will need to price the watch case itself as well - for a homework project prototype, I would suggest a 3d printed case that you design yourself to fit the components you choose.The search box is at the top of every page, or you can click here: http://www.instructables.com/howto/gps+tracker/andhttp://www.instructables.com/howto/3d+printed+watc...
+1That's a good idea - some of my instructables have three or four files attached.
Oh, that's great, thanks for sharing.I have made a more traditional boomerang, which you should be able to replicate with hand tools: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Boom...
I didn't mean you had to use a lamp exactly like the one in the photo (that was just a happy coincidence of shape) - you can use any shade that fits the lamp you want to use.
You should move this to the "Bugs" forum.
I finally got around to finishing my re-mix!I replaced the spring-steel trigger return with a rubber band, and left an open panel to replace it as needed (rubber bands perish long before steel rusts!).I've attached my ECP file as well, just in case somebody wants to make this version for themselves.
Hard Wood Baby Rattle
You did message, I was just *real* slow replying...
1. Look like end-caps to go over sharp spars.2. Slide very snugly onto spars to stop other things sliding along them.3. End-caps that slot into grommets in sail fabric or loops in string.4. An address tag. Not really part of a kite, but some people put such tags on their kites and kite-bags in case of losses in high winds.5. Some sort of rubber band.6. Crossover - a spar will go in each end, and a third will pass through the loop.7. Strong rubber bands - you can use them to tie spars at odd angles, or to keep tension in a structural line.8. No idea.9. Another crossover. Probably stiffer than #6, and maybe another spar will go in from the direction that is "bottom" in the photo.

(Yes, crossovers can be used to form a dihedral angle in the kite, but you might be better to use a dedicated fitting, such as http://intothewind.com/dihedral-fittings-for-kite...)10. Butt-joint. A main spar goes right through the small hole, and then the end of a short spar pushes into the long part. Should feel slightly flexible & rubbery.11. More end-caps, for different thicknesses of spar.12. Nocks - like the back end of an arrow, a structural line will pass over the end of a spar in these.
Oh, and whilst a dihedral is very, very desirable, you don't have to build an actual angle into your kite - you could add a bow or use a design that will bow in the wind.http://www.drachen.org/sites/default/files/pdf/Wha...http://www.peterlynnhimself.com/Why_Kites_Dont_Fly...
Haha, that sounds cool.It might be a bit weak to hold the weight of suet, but you could stuff it with wool scraps and fluff for birds to take to line nests.
If the dome has a thickened lip around the bottom, you could raise the edge of the base and use small bolts through the raised edge to trap the thickened rim.
That was a reply to Arsenal671.Two months ago...
Nah, I'm having fun on the redesign!
Semi-Automatic Rubber Band Gun
This is very cool, but I don't have any spring steel, so I'm working on a different trigger-return mechanism.I'll post pictures when I'm done.
This is a bit short - it would be cool if you used your own photos to show us how to play each chord or note, and maybe a video of playing it?
Question number one: are you a premium / pro member?
You can practice with cheap copper wire - it's surprisingly easy when you try!
Since you don't list the videos you've watched, the only possible answer is "use your favourite search engine".
My first thought is that the people who dump bags & rubbish beside the wheelie bins are just going to throw it at the door of a "waste house".
Not an actual clue myself - maybe another member with more high-voltage experience can help?
Haha, that's cool!
Thanks for sharing that - I always enjoy making these!
Don't ballasts do interesting things to voltages? Would they drive a small Jacob's Ladder?
The skewers I used were about a foot long, but I've seen these built using six-foot wooden poles.
It would help if you said what software / laser you are using.Lasercut 5.3 works on colour-coded outlines. If you put one engrave shape inside another, then only the area between the two outlines would engrave.For your example, If you put the outline of the grasshopper inside the outline of the hexagon, then the grasshopper would NOT be engraved, but the rest of the hexagon would, as you desire.
They've always dealt well with spammers here.
Day-to-day exposure (such as nickel compounds naturally found in water and food, or the wearing of jewellery) is easily dealt with by the kidneys - nickel does not accumulate like lead, and most orally-consumed nickel does not even enter the blood-stream, but is passed out with all the other solid wastes.Carcinogenic or toxic effects only occur with large doses or daily exposure to nickel compounds.I don't know where you got your sensitivity data - ~22% of Americans have contact dermatitis, but that includes all triggers, not just nickel.TL:DR; Awesome ring. If it makes your finger itchy, varnish the inside.
Um... That is chemicals. Everything is made of chemicals.
This might still work;http://www.instructables.com/community/Changing-Yo...If it doesn't, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask nicely (make sure you use the same email address you used to create your account).
If you can use close-up of parts of the projects, and write instructions of how you did what's in the photo, you should be OK.Otherwise, consider posting a forum topic to show them off.
What, like a portfolio of your existing instructables? Or do you mean things where you didn't take photos as you made them?
Just read the instructable, then "wing it".
Then... welcome!Have a browse of the forums and the projects, join in wherever it looks interesting.
Hit the </> button, then add <sub>subscript</sub> or <sup>superscript</sup> around the text as required.
Silly question, but have you actually registered for any?
Bit of a noob question from somebody who's been here long enough that he should know better, but is there a list/instructions somewhere of the types of filters we can use?
As of the time-stamp of this comment, clicking the You drop-down and selecting Settings gets me the "down" page.
I can't explore properly right now (on my phone via motel WiFi), but it looks as though they've done what a lie of people have been requesting for quite a while.
Packing up projects for display on Saturday...
Mine arrived today!
Can we please not encourage a potentially-dangerous belief in superstitious silliness?This instructable was intended to be a light-hearted reflection of a local tradition.No matter what you believe, witches are not real, curses are not real. Any power a "witch" has is purely in the power of suggestion and placebo.
Cool - post a picture, if you can!
I didn't create either of them!
Umm... I don't.That's why my classes tend to come out at the top in exams...
That's a really clever way to get the sail profiles!
I'm trying to remember who drew it - it wasn't me!
Oh, this, so very this!
I often find a project circulating in my head for a long time before I actually build it, to the extent that I can picture how every step will go, so sometimes I end up writing the whole thing out before I take a single photo or pick up a tool.
LOL - it's Halloween soon, sacred holiday of Makers everywhere...
Woot, let's start A Thing

It will get shipped to whatever address you fill in.For "state", you can probably use "province".Once the package is moving, you will get messages from Instructables and FedEx confirming the destination.
It *shouldn't* re-set.If you think it has, you can drop an email to email@example.com and ask them to check.
("Titles" is just a plural, no apostrophe needed. The other way of saying it would be Instructables' titles - apostrophe after the S; the titles possessed by more than one Instructable)
The main site is staying the same, classes are an add-on.
This is nothing, you should see the mob I gather on Twitter...
Check the links - you may be looking at *this* instructable.
I can see your orangeboard here:http://www.instructables.com/member/Yonatan24?show...
Except water doesn't create a field of any kind.It's a shame you only just noticed this "skill" - you missed being a millionaire by months:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Million_Dollar_P...
Oh, that is a thing of beauty!Voted!
You're not going to get the job if you can't work out how to apply.Read the post carefully, all the way through.
Would it be polite to drool over a project that is not even made yet?
