Interesting, would be quite useful I reckon. So this evens out the oscillations to give a readable output? How do you go about the adjustment with the variable resistor?
That's really interesting. I spend a lot of time around the ocean myself, getting hands wet when fishing etc. It never cured my fungus, but I could have sworn that things were at least better when I would be away getting salty everyday. I think I need to spend some time in the Caribbean to test that part out! I'm actually starting to think that the different types are killed by different methods, as I've found with my nails that I will kill it off and then it will come back later and the method I used before won't work. Tinnea between my toes hadn't come back at all though. I'm keen to test thyme oil out when I can buy some, as nail fungus is giving me a little trouble at the momentCheers for your comment
I was going to suggest storing them separately myself. With both gases in one container, all you need is one good jolt to kick that reaction off turning it all back into water
Going through my comments, I just rediscovered this-and I really could have used this today!! I will make this up before I need it, and stuff another project from something not being centred accurately. Now if I just had a way to ensure the table was exactly 90deg to the drill......

Thanks mate. I had a search and the only ones I could find seemed pretty insecure, or got flagged as virus or similar, so I gave up on that. I'm finding myself viewing instructables less and less without the app, on my mobile it just isn't showing up well at all, and is a pain to use
Hi Phil. Thought I would post again as you haven't replied to my previous comments.It seems that its the desktop version showing when I view on my phone. I'm using Android, and browser is Chrome. Is there any reason why its not showing up on my mobile like you said it should be for mobile interfaces? Should I try a change in browser, or is there something on the instructables end that doesn't like chrome, android or similar and nothing I can do myself?I'm finding it a big struggle to use as it showing currently when viewing recent instructables. It seems the actual instructables I view are showing more reasonably, but still not like it was on the app, which was just simple.

I liked that all photos were there in the app at thumbnail size, no need to click on more images, and that the whole instructable loaded up without needing to click on view all steps.For the record, my use of the app was purely for viewing, not for publishing instructables. Can you maybe direct me to where the issue might be?
He is into radio control, meaning he would be pretty experience with Lipo and safe use. Additionally, he mentions the current that this drew in use, about 5a I think, which is well within the specs of most Lipo cells designed for radio control. 1a cell discharging at 5a means 1/5 of an hour it would last 12 min, pretty much the time mentioned in the article (that would be 5c discharge, cell was rated for 20c, or 20a for a 1 amp battery). I'm sure we have all seen small radio control helicopters or quads that discharge their whole capacity in half that time, meaning they are discharging at twice the rate of this tool, or closer to 10c....and perfectly safe. I don't see any issue with this tool, it's a lot safer than many rc planes
I would think that the heat from the solder itself would heat up the metal enough for it to bond properly. I often make joints by having the blob of solder hanging off the tip of the iron, holding it there long enough for the whole part to heat up (1-2s normally), as long as it's a hot enough iron. I prefer this for soldering direct to battery cells as it doesn't heat the cell up as much as transferring the heat through the end of the cell to the area being soldered.
I didn't watch the video, so if they look like cold joints on there then I can't argue. Unless it's lead free solder, that stuff seems horrible to work with and all of my joints look cold with it. Always seem strong, but the look they have puts me off.I've got one of those little Weller gas irons, works really well. The part about this that really interests me is the principle. I wonder if it would work well with the solder paste for reflowOne thing I should have added is that for my method with the solder blob on the iron tip, you need to use flux on the end of the cell. I use added flux everywhere anyway, it certainly doesn't hurt and there are many instances where the solder just won't flow and bond without it, even using flux cored solder.
Using the site on mobile, I've noticed that the home page etc are showing just like the computer, making it hard to use. Is this something to do with my phone or with instructables? I did notice that browsing recent instructables it showed more appropriately that the other pages
My app stopped working mid comment this morning (android) so I deleted and went to reinstall from play store. Was surprised it wasn't there, leading me to here.I really liked the app, it was simple and uncluttered and I could browse it while grabbing a coffee. I did use it for uploading photos, with most editing done on computer. I guess I'm turning into the phone user I never wanted to be-use it for everything and only use computer when I have to. I just don't find the time to sit down at computer unless I have to these days. Probably my most used app.I'll give the mobile interface a go. Try and work out a desktop shortcut.

Actually, change that-recent instructable looked like it was showing properly but it wasn't. The very left hand column was perfectly aligned.I noticed that it wasn't www.m.instrxxxx address I was looking at. Should it be that? If so is it my browser/phone that could be the issue or something on instructables?
I was wondering how you would drill out the hex part nice and centered-very neat way of achieving that without a lathe! That is certainly a to I have taken away.Thanks for sharing. I like seeing how others get around these sorts of repairs
Congratulations!So this cooker is like a slow cooker.....but really fast?
Good tip on the sunflower oil, thanks.Do people not break the chips off? I'm surprised about that one as I thought it was rule number 1
Frequency sweep with 555 timer
Very interesting! Thanks for sharing
Awesome-thanks for sharing!
Is that sharp of an edge really necessary on an axe? something I've always wondered
That is very neat! I like the thinking with this, will have to make one eventually. Thanks for sharing
I agree with your sentiments regarding wastefulness. This reminds me of when I was younger they always said it takes more fuel to start a car than to keep it running for x amount of time. Can't remember what x was. I've wondered if this was only true for old carburetor cars?Interesting project
Simple Compact 5v Voltage Regulator with Low Battery Alarm
Will do. I was also meant to ask, is the temperatures you gave in Celsius or Fahrenheit?
'Sous Vide' With No Special Equipment
But sous vide uses vacuum bags, and stirs the water...doesn't it?I like this idea, keen to give it go. Thanks for sharing. It's always put me off due to being complicated
Informative, thanks for sharing
Transformerless Adjustable Joule Thief
I have long pondered something like this, thanks for sharing. So just to get this straight, the fly ball spins around for one revolution of the pinion, then gets tangled around the dowel, slowing the rotation, then unwinds from the pressure on the main gear, spinning again for another rotation. Is that how it works?The part that held me back in my mind was slowing the rotation without having it geared in a way that meant you would have to hoist the bucket back up really often
just noticed the second dowel, so make that half a revolution
ooh, I like this idea! Thanks for sharing. well give this one a try

Voltage Clamp for Arduino using Zener Diode, PTC, and an NPN Transistor
Thanks for that. That's helpful. Lots of good info here and the comments
Nice and informative, thanks for posting. Would you say that forging rather than stock removal saves any time, or take longer etc?As for future instructables, heat treatment is one that interests me
Very intriguing-dry shampoo. Interesting read, thanks...Not that I can see myself using it! (I'm lucky to use a comb)
Thanks. Big help. Now I just need some way of heating to above that temp in the actual bag
This is a great introduction. You have answered many questions I've had for a while, and that people in Facebook canning groups etc don't seem to be able to answer. Thanks for taking the time to post
Actually, have a question. I have been thinking of making meals in a bag for hiking etc. So I gather from what you have written here that my two options are to have meals that are acidic at 4.5pH or lower and just boil, or alternatively have vacuum bags that can handle temps higher than 121°C. Would that be correct?If I was using high temp vac bags, would it be suitable to seal the bags and then heat them to the higher temps?Thanks in advance
This is very cool! I'm always deforming the plastic jars trying to microwave it just enough, but it's always stinging hot in one part and still cold in another. Simple solution
Interesting that you don't use any refractory and have no issues. I gathered from all other posts that it was necessary. I'm looking to harden a few knife blades so don't want to invest to much currently, then I came across someone doing it in the dirt.....suits me!
Thanks. Interesting. I was wondering if they used it as a fertilizer for growing crops as well
I was wondering if the chemistry was different to coal, and therefore if charcoal would get hot enough for forging etc
Can you heat the water using sunlight on top of the room you are using? would reduce running costs at least. I've had a very similar idea for warming the house, except our house gets absolutely zero sunlight during winter. Thanks for sharing
Wow! Very informative. While I'm pretty confident with led's and driving them, this was a very informative piece covering a lot of information. Thanks for taking the time to put this up
My wife is reading that now, so I should ask her, but....what did they use the charcoal for?
Cheers. This link has some of the images I remember from the article I'm thinking of, but I can't find the original at the moment (at work)http://www.askamathematician.com/2013/05/q-is-fire-a-plasma-what-is-plasma/still interesting to see and read aboutI would be keen to read about the other states of matter also
Nice, thanks for posting. I'm trying to remember what I was reading, but it was about either smoke or a flame actually being a plasma, I can't remember which. Demonstrated with a magnet and microwave from memory. Sparked my interest to go and look that up again
Your English was better than a lot of people who speak it as a native, so no need to apologise for it.Nice instructable. I imagine with the transformer it wouldn't be real cheap/easy to do this with a lot of bulbs. I've read about capacitor circuits being used to control led current with ac power, and I've noticed it's used in a fair few led light bulbs I've bought for the house. Have you any experience with these circuits? I've just noticed a lot of these have stopped working, want sure if it was the circuit or because they are cheap Chinese bulbs

Nice result! The dremel didn't wreck the temper near the edge?
That branding looks awesome on the timber! I'm not sure if your intending it to be visible, but I think it would add a great touch on some styles with that on the front. Nice job making the brand too
That's awesome! Nice experimenting and results, well done

Eno Camping Hammock DIY Knock-Off
Yes-tidying up takes away from experimenting/making stuff time!Well, I at least started this morning. Stuck some carbon arrow shafts out from timber and now hanging pliers etc on that. That distracted me sufficiently from uni work for a while.....Now I'm playing with molds for lures!
Your almost tempting me to give knife making a go....almost! One day, just lacking time at the moment. Nice write up, thanks for sharing
Who doesn't love a good hack repair! Nicely done
Thanks. Gives me something to search
I like your method here. While I'm very familiar with this, I picked up a couple of tips here. Thanks for sharing.Out of interest, what is the main method used for harvesting hydrogen/oxygen these days if it isn't electrolysis?
Not bad.....I might try and double it! It's all good-I also live down here in metricville, so I understand the mysterious metre
Just seems to easy! I always thought it was harder than this. Thanks for sharing
I love those free tomato plants you get from the fallen tomatoes! Always heaps too
Very cool! What sort of heights do you get?
Smartphone Milkyway Photography
That's awesome! Thanks for sharing. I'll have a play with this one day
Yes, surprisingly easy. Just put the cutting into a put our soil you keep really most for a week or so (when it starts looking healthier). By then it's started developing roots and you can reduce the water. I reckon it's pretty cool
I've always just used whatever. I think tomatoes are one of the easiest plants to do this with. I've done it plenty just poking a hole into the garden bed shoving it into there, compacting soil well sound it so it doesn't dry out. Keep water up to it.The longer the branch the more babying it seems to need, but I've done it with branches over a metre long. Just seems to take a bit a bit longer and needs more water.
Thanks for the info, you've helps explain the why a bit better.Me being me, I hate the thought of wasting the branches I cut off. I always plant them and get a few new plants going......I need to limit the amount of plants I get going!
Very cool! Not to mention the soldering needed. Thanks for sharing.
Yes, it's really comforting how everyone is so nice, loving and supportive in the comments section!I had no idea what an arc lighter was either
Yeah, I should have said doesn't cost anything to the guy at the end with the circuit having a play around. It's what I meant when I wrote the above post, and like I said there it's what I figured was meant the whole time with the term "free energy" in this and other instructables. My real gripe really is that people don't need to say it rudely, there is a be nice policy on here (not referring to you here). Nothing wrong with saying it though
nnadine: there is free energy and there is free energy, both with different meanings. My assumption with this instructable was that it was referring to energy that didn't cost anything, hence "free", rather than an over unity type impossibility. From the comments being written it seems that a lot of people haven't considered this other, more common, meaning of the word "free", and frankly have voiced that fairly rudely.
