    DIY Induction Heater

    I'll probably save this for future reference (to build my own induction forge once life permits), but I would like at least some insight into how would you transform this into something that can get a somewhat large piece of steel to non-magnetic point in a reasonable time (yes, I'm interesting in blacksmithing too). i.e. how do you add moar powah? just "sturdier" components that can handle higher currents, or should the focus be voltage, or... ?

I... would have to write a whole essay to describe it (I'm bad at this, okay?), but suffice to say, the fan-blades were at most 10cm diameter, and the speed couldn't be THAT big (a few tens of RPMs maybe). those things did fly. granted you'd need a higher speed for takeoff, but with enough lightness, a few hundred rpms would do. (then you have to consider the magnets... they must orient each other, but they must not really attract each other! - though the decoupling takes care of that).

    well, then you better not lose the little wood spacers! :) I got the "no hardware" idea - it just seemed funny to me (in a way), that you prefer to weld rather than using screws -*even* for the metal part, though I don't know how it would be done with screws either, but still. see, I have no clue on welding, even though I own an arc welder, go figure.

    Make Your Keyboard Shine Again in RGB

    I was all hyped thinking I would be able to turn my cheapo into a backlighted keyboard.... (I'm a sucker for lights, you see). turns out you start with an already lighted one. oh, well. I'll keep saving.

    there are ways to illuminate non-illuminated keyboards, but it won't be as easy. first, keys are not transparent so most you'll get is backlight. second - there are no leds already in there, so you have to find a way to power them (and a standard usb probably won't do this - at least not with led strips, which are my whole "let's try to get a backlight on this KB" experience). also, connections aren't gonna be as easy as "de-solder this, solder that".

Also, I pour it hot into the jars - maybe that's what sterilizes them, lol.

    in my experience, superglue (cyano-acrilate glue, to be exact) rarely works with plastics. it's not a matter of drying time (honestly, it already dries in less than 5 minutes, why do you need to accelerate it?), but it just doesn't want to stick to most plastics. epoxy (two-part), or resin-based (i.e. contact glue) usually work well (in the "will stick" department), even though they do take a while to dry/cure.

I would use a key one, then wear that key as a pendant or something. if the padlock is thick enough (and made of steel, of course), someone with a bolt cutter will have a hard time breaking it... also, who the hell has a blot cutter just lying around?!

    LUMOS: Smart Lamp for Better Sleep

    yeah, DIY is always more flexible, and of course more fun. but I have ZERO experience with arduino or even microcontrollers, so I would have to learn first. for roughly $20, I have a bulb that I can manage from android. add tasker to the equation, and you can do pretty impressive things with it (and the official yeelight app has tasker support). I guess it all depends on whether you want to learn, and *maybe* save a few bucks, or just get the work done. I'm totally a DIY person, but microcontrollers are still quite advanced stuff for me, haha. someday I'll have the money and the time to learn. :)

I also had problems connecting from the laptop (to the router), so it's probably all the router's fault. but still, it's something that I do have to resolve. good thing with the bulb, it's rated at 600 lumens (IIRC), and I'd think it delivers. so e.g. for alarm clock, you just need one. though, as "ceiling lamp" for a smallish room, I would get two. but I like lots of light. :)

I guess I could put a sunset profile too , but since I go to bed at different times, I prefer to just manually set the brightness and color as I'm getting sleepy. nice instructable, but IMO too complicated (arduino + raspberry?! I'm too poor for that!!) and with not enough functions (... since my setup includes sleep phase detection and trust me - the difference in waking energy is HUGE). PS: not trying to be negative - this can also be viewed as "ideas to improve the project" (ESPECIALLY the sleep phase detection! ... no alarm clock should be without that anymore. )

    in my experience, the smaller the bit, the higher the chance for it to break. so if you're using a small bit to drill a pilot hole (i.e. when you want to make a BIG hole, but the large bit will take forever), don't get the smallest bit - get the one that's a bit larger. you'll be enlarging the hole later anyway, and a single mm can make the difference between "broken in 5 seconds" and "HSS on stone-ridden masonry with a percussion drill, yet not broken" (... that was me the other day when I didn't bother to buy some masonry bits.... yet the 4mm HSS bit endured the hard work - though the tip was totally blunt by the end)also, in my experience, the "just reuse it" (when it's broken in half) doesn't really work too well. tbh, I've never had a long one broken (...

    where's the edit button?! (yep I'm pretty new here)had to say: to all those saying "just use a drill press" - how do you even drill a hole on a wall with that? huh? or on say, a PC case? a mounted table? the right tool for the job, yeah. the answer is not *always* "just use a drill press". ;) that said, the "don't try to drill the hole with the drill off" (as in, don't use too damn much pressure) also helps. both the bit and the actual drill.
