  • DIY: Squeeze Extra Capacity From Old NiCd Batteries

    Seems nice, might be cheaper to buy new cells than to get one of those chargers though.

    Wonderful Chinglish, if you feel down, grab one of those manuals and have a good laugh. ;-)It's a nice instructable, very useful if you have more time than money on your hands. I was worried about the heat problem but I see it was addressed already in the comments with a good tip how to better mount those batteries together again. I put a PSU and a cord on mine, rarely use the tool so the batteries are always either discharged or need to be in the charger. If sizes match you can put the PSU inside the battery compartment.

    Clever - they should sell them like that, with a battery holder instead so you don't have to move it near an outlet.

    Laser Printed PCB's, Perfect and Easy.

    Doesn't look very nice, maybe some polish with steel wool helps.

    I work at a PCB factory so I don't really have the need but I've seen the toner transfer method before and it seems very common to get cracks in the toner that causes breaks on the traces. Is it possible to fill those in with a pen of some sort? You could just draw che traces with a pen directly on the copper if it's not complicated, or tape it, or use the rub on versions.

    Doesn't currently work with the cam-file provided, hole coordinates are sized up maybe 10 times. If changing cam for drills to EXCELLON_24 instead of EXCELLON it works fine from EagleCAD 7.6.It doesn't seem to do the outline board is just rectangualr, if selecting Outline it just shows the inside of the holes. Pretty nice anyway.

    Deck of Cards in a Bottle (It's a puzzle!)

    It's a really time consuming place to store your deck of cards, one or two hours in either direction?

    Capacity Test Of Fake 18650

    It would be clear to anyone he meant...... wait for it....250mAh...and not 0.250mAhDots were added as decoration - in anticipation of the result, not as a decimal comma.

    PS3 SIXAXIS Charging Station

    For next google:r, different original PS3 controllers seem to function in different ways, some can apparently be used with plain chargers, someone managed to get charging working by connecting DATA+ to GND.I tried that, also tried grounding "pin X" or 4 pr ID as it can be called (that isn't connected in most mini USB cables) as that was the solution for a GPS my boss used - that also didn't work, grounding "DATA-" neither "both DATA" and also not connecting 100k from the +5V to each DATA-pin as suggested by Roshy10 here.According to sources "USB charger used must act as a USB host device" so charging from various other devices such as cable box, computer etc etc will work fine.

Sony sells their own wall charger of course. Must be the most power wasting charging ever having to have the PS3, computer or cable box running just to charge when a small plain USB charger would have been enough - we have loads of those, right? I have the controller model called CECHZC2E A1.You can buy a host chip though, for example the TI TPS2540, which was the first I found. I guess they saved putting a chip like that into the controller and let the host manage the charging instead. Haven't checked the datasheet but maybe it's enough to add one of those to make it work.

    Hmm... doesn't that stuff you iron on get wrinkled even worse next time it's washed - and it's even worse getting the wrinkles out? Isn't ironing it enough?

  • It's Possible to Use the Angle Grinder As a Chainsaw

    Just because you can build something dangerous, doesn't mean you have to - and if you do, not necessarily use it. Problem is that other people may try and do the same from inspiration, not thinking about the consequences. If you have a workshop with tools like that I'm sure you should already have some sense of preservation. Very nicely built though.

    Master a perfect inline wire splice everytime

    Before twisting wires together, prepare shrink tubing over at least one wire - always annoying having to redo the job because of that. ;-) It's pretty much like the "Lineman splice" I guess.
