With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts.
Tell us about yourself!
how many amps can this handle?
What's the tool with the crank and wooden drum in a couple of the photos?
Nice write up! (My neighbor's oak tree is looking tempting)
I, personally, have no use for this -- but an AMAZINGLY creative re-use of something. Great idea!
Top points for ingenuity! (but much easier to just salvage buttons from other things). Thanks for sharing!
Can't you disconnect the battery (with a switch) once the capacitors are charged? That way you don't have to worry about any huge draws on the battery during the weld.
Just a quick historical note -- vikings were one of the few ancient cultures that DIDN'T put horns on their helmets. Someone decided to add them to viking opera costumes in the 1870's, creating the stereotype.
That's cool enough to "almost" make me go out and buy a lathe! Nice concept!
How does the price compare to eBay? You can certainly get it quicker at your local dollar store.
Best typo ever! Because it still makes sense! :)1. Always Wear electrical GLOWS when handling the High Voltage Power supply.Awesome!
If this is in the instructable and I missed it, I apologize -- but how is the size in each block of the grid determined? For example, how do I know how big a 10 x 10 grid is in the real world?
Would love to see a diy receiver as well. Would have some cool robotic applications!
Similar... my Dad (carpenter) always hit the pointed end of a nail with the hammer to prevent splitting (even when framing 2x4's). Prevents the nail head from acting like a wedge.
If you're looking for a cheap source of acrylic, start grabbing dead LCD monitors from friends and family. Most fave a pretty thick sheet in them.
"have" not "fave".
Did you just press fit the gear onto the motor shaft? What keeps the shaft from just spinning without the gear moving?
If they were installed the other way around, a cap could be built to hold a "button battery", small switch, and led.
You have to make sure the rollers are exactly perpindicular to the saw blade, otherwise your work piece will try to pull to one side. That's why the roller balls are preferred.
Wow! Just need a flowing blue robe to look like water!
Awesome! I'm going to add an extra short section of pipe to hold a spare cartridge of grease.
Nicely done! I've heard you can "polish" it with powdered graphite and a rag. The longer you spend on it, the more metallic it looks. However, I don't know if the graphite will then get all over your clothing, hands, etc.
Must have been pushing VERY hard and his hand shot forward impaling itself on the wire.This is a proven and common approach. I've even seen 1/2-inch threaded rod hammered to an "arrow point" at one end and used to drill through the ground with a 3/4-inch drill as a probe. By using threaded couplings they were able to keep adding 3-foot lengths and got down as far as 15-feet (checking for rock). The only thing they had to watch out for was to keep the drill spinning clockwise/forward, even while removing it from the ground, so that the couplings wouldn't unthread.
A broke wanting a concealed weapon. What could go wrong?
Can you just use water to get the sugar/salt off the model?
Can it turn?
Awesome! This one of the few designs that makes sense since it protects the aggregate (the tiny gravel) on the shingles. Too many people scrape off aggregate while removing snow which drastically shortens the life of your shingles.Good work!
How many watts?
Best use of a Harry Potter book ever!Also, your model is amazing!
If there are light-colored objects or surfaces in the house, wouldn't at least SOME of the light be reflected back out through the window? The greater and darker the amount of surfaces the light hits, the less that gets reflected out -- so there WOULD be a net gain. Whether that gain is worth the money and effort would have to be tested/justified.
VERY MISLEADING "$40" description.
Here's a closeup shot.
Which, as I said, is why they can make stoves out of wood.
Sounds like you're already beyond my electronic knowledge! :)
You should include a resistor on the signal line, as close to the LED strip as possible -- to protect your signal pin. Between 220 and 470 ohm.Also, for software, I HIGHLY recommend looking into FastLED.Great work!
You can also just toss them from hand to hand and yell "ow, ow, oo, ow, hot, HOT, ow, ow, ow!"
What's a dishwasher? I just put the dirty dishes on the counter and they end up clean in the appropriate cabinets.
So... either the instructions that come with it are so poor you -- the manufacturer -- had to create an instructable, or this is just a thinly veiled ad for your product.
That's probably why they make wood stoves.
Great build! Well thought out, excellent performance, and a polished look!
And one should never make a crucifix out of anything but wood? Or buy a totem pole replica? Should Native Americans only perform their traditional dances in leather clothing they hunted, skinned, and tanned themselves... and never decorate them with manufactured beads? Saying "my comment is not meant to offend" doesn't make it any less condescending. This project is an awesome way for hundreds, if not thousands of more people to learn more about Aboriginal traditions. If you REALLY want to respect the Aboriginals, get off their continent.
Don't walk around with them on a key chain! Most places it's illegal to even possess lock-picking tools. A lot of burglars will dispose of their picks once through the lock. If they caught they can always (try and) say that they heard a scream/shot/etc, tried the door and it was unlocked, so went in to check. Doesn't work if you the jewelry box is empty and your pockets are full though!
This is JUST AN AD! A pretty good way to make sure I never buy one of their products. Goes against the Instructables grain.
Were the rafters you cut running perpendicular to the long side of the opening? If so, you greatly increased the span of the opening and -- if all you did was reinforce along the length of the opening -- you transferred more weight/load to the rafter at each end of the opening. If the rafters run parallel to the long side of the opening, you should be good.
There's something about this project that bugs me.
