I used this resin http://www.recochem.com.au/index.php/products/consumer_products/fibreglass/item/diggers_casting_embedding_resinyou may have to put in four or five layers before the wood stops sucking it up but the results are realy good.Ill post some photos when I can work out how to get photos off a stuipd Iphone
Ive just built kitchen counter bench tops with reclaimed floorboards, and it came out great. I filled the nail holes and knot holes with casting resin, and put small sea shells in some of the bigger holes and then filled with casting resin. Because the resin sets clear it doesn't try and disguise the holes but Ive still got a surface without holes.Your table looks great by the way.
I see your from India, maybe you could offer to trade something from your country, that is not easily available anywhere else, like vehicle license plates, or something that is made locally.
Thanks Heather, We are in the process of moving house so I had to remove the garden, My new house doesnt have the same problems of poor soil, and water restrictions, so I have given the system away to a friend, He hasnt done anything with it yet, but he has plans to get it running again.
Im not sure if this is possible but a heat pump with a high COP rating, connected to a high efficiency steam engine, is something thats been running around in my head for awhile now. Back to your problem, You can pick up large second hand PV panel quite cheaply, give these guy a phone call http://commodoreaustralia.com.au/I picked up a KW of panels for $600
Looks like someones updating things again, also have you noticed the explore button doesn't work on home page and if your in the forums?
The 2 sides and the front and back are each designed to fit on an A3 sheet of paper, so 3 sheets in total The electronic box on the back will need to be cut out of 3mm but also will fit on an A3 sheet.Ive no longer use the easy drivers, as they can be a pain with some types of stepper motors. I now go for these, http://www.instructables.com/id/Using-a-Single-Axis-TB6560-Stepper-Driver-With-GRB/but I need to write another instructable on upgrading the mill to fit them.
You could, but that is as big as my printer would take
thats cool, you have got the mother of all spindle motors
Medium sized DIY - CNC 20" x 30" work area
looks like that to me, i dont know what your doing
Something I would like fixed, is the favorites button is no longer on my public profile page. It was useful for my students to be able to go to my profile page and find instructables that are relevant to their projects, now its become a bit of a pain to get students all on the same instructable.
When I live in NZ you would sometime come across a Weta They a pretty big and scary. But as a kid I hated the Huhu beetle, they fly around at night so if you left a window open you get nasty surprise when you wake up.
Im re-posting this as my comment disappeared....Have a look at this http://www.siliconchip.com.au/Issue/2016/OctoberYou can still get the mag at the news agent, the theory is that mozzies like a 400hz tone and the Aedes mozzie likes 484 hz. You put the speaker in a fly trap and you have an electronic mozzie trap.Ive been playing with this, http://www.szynalski.com/tone-generator/and almost finished codeing an ardunio to make a tone generator.

Errr your realy not going to like the look of the new "subscribers" page.....
Thanks, i havent looked at the views for a long time. I think I used to have an Orange board, I cant seem to find it now though... where is your orange board?Now I look at it again you also cant see how many instructables you have written without counting them.
Yes all good points, I dont know what i was thinking...
Arrh where have my patches gone! ;-√
Thanks rasterbater has been update since i wrote this so its even better than ever
You could do that...
This works even if your not pro. First use firefox or chrome, then install the add-on "disconnect" No more ads from any web site ever again!https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/disconnect/jeoacafpbcihiomhlakheieifhpjdfeo
Digtial notice board for sc...View Instructable »
There were 6 or so comments here last time i looked.
Thats nice and simple, Im going to have a go at making one. Ive converted a few generators to propane, and it just a simple adjustment to convert to natural gas, have a look at http://www.instructables.com/id/Off-Grid-LPG-Batte...
I had a portable hard drive fail, so i just pulled it apart and used the circuitry to make my own dock. Works just fine, as downunder said you can get converters from ebay. just make sure you get one with the separate power supply as Ive use the ones with 2 usb cables and they sometimes don't have the power to start hard drive.
Ive been using that kit to teach students electronics and soldering skills, have a look at the links.http://www.instructables.com/id/Bomb-Proof-Clock/http://www.instructables.com/id/Custom-Electronic-...
The alternator has been used for months and it has never got hot, the only differences between a clockwise and counter clockwise alternator is the fan. In any case they are built to be inside a hot engine bay so i cant see it been a problem. As for engine size, i dont want a small engine running a 3000 rpm or more because of the noise, and engine wear. Far better to have a larger engine running a 1200-1500 rpm at less then half the rated horse power.
thats cool Ill send you a pro membership if you want one
The gas carb can be adjust to run on NG. They dont have a gas line near by.
Most alternators will only charge to 14.2 volts, but you can get an after market regulator to that will charge to 14.8
I think it depends on your definition of "off grid" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Off-the-grid
they guys go to wrecking yards and remove the gas cylinders from old cars, they can get a full cylinder for $10, the wrecker is happy to be rid of them.
Hi I have a question. I know where there is a wild bee hive inside a hollow tree, the bees are not aggressive, and I would like to encourage them to move into a box or hive. I was thinking of nailing a box onto the entrance of their tree hive, and hope that they would start moving in, or a lest produce some honey I can get to. The tree is huge and looks like it would fall over if I started chopping holes in it with a chainsaw, so Im not keen on doing that, as it located on the side of a road. Any comments or advise?
Have a go a Pro desktop you can check out this Ible http://www.instructables.com/id/Digital-Manufacturing-project-one-Key-tag/it shows you how to get started and how to activate the software it also has a link to down load it. Ive down a few instructables on how to use it also.
Yep Ive got to try 360, but my laptop is too old :-(
I never realy understood why there is an ISO setting on a digital camera, its not like you can replace the CCD with a different type to make it more or less sensitive to light. I can only think that it artificially introduces noise to the image to make it look like a film camera. Bit of marketing hype maybe. Could also be Im old and grumpy looking at all my old film SLRs that don't get used any more....
great instructable. you have a typo in step 7, "So get yourself an old rack, make it damp - not dripping wet - and wipe down the surrounding wall and patch panel."I didnt know what you were on about, but I guess it should be rag.
I would try and find a couple of wheel chair motors or electric golf caddie motors, you can pick them up cheap or free
I wouldn't think so, the stencil would have to have a backing like a sticker

It hard to get good info, that web site you linked in your comment also had this chart.http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/charging_the_lead_acid_battery
Im a tech teacher and am slowly putting my class and student projects on instructables. The best think I ever did. Im not realy a computer teacher but Ive got a few CAD instructables and one on how to do stop motion.http://www.instructables.com/member/liquidhandwash/
Hi pretired. The roof is a bit rickety, and it can get very hot here over 45 C have a look at http://www.instructables.com/id/Solar-Powered-Air-...I made it for the same group of people who are basically homeless
You would also get more wear on the belt, alternator bearings and brushes and introduce more loses with the alternator fan, by running the alternator at high speed. 6000 rpm seem to be the best operating rpm, all though anything from 1800-1200 rpm within its operating range. http://apps.bosch.com.au/AAExtranet_TechSearch/docs/repairinstruction/altR11-0.pdf
Hi Tytower thanks for the feed back. The maximum voltage depends on the type of battery you have, for a flooded lead acid that is 14.8 volts and as high as 15.5 to equalize the cells. A SLA battery would be damaged with those voltages.Check out the linkhttp://www.trojanbattery.com/BatteryMaintenance/Charging.aspx
Alternator don't make good wind turbines and they need to turn at a lest 3000 rpm and a wind turbine only turn around 500 rpm depending on size. You are much better off finding a motor from an electric tread mill, Ive made one and they work well with 800mm blades.
Ive not seen a LP carb for a briggs, You may have to modify things to get it to fit.
Yes you could, I choose that size as its about the same size as the pulley fitted to the automotive engine the alternator came off. The engine runs at around 1200 to 1500 rpm, which keeps the noise and fuel consumption down.

Long range, 1.8km, Arduino to Arduino wireless communication with the HC-12.
Hi luke, Ive got a couple more karts on the go, the kids love building them. As this build is aimed at year 9 kids everything is as a simple as possible. The lack of bearings is not a problem just put some grease on the bolts and pivots and its all good. Make sure you use nylock nuts and back them off a little, if the bolts are too tight they will bind. That said if you are up for it, fitting bearing to the king pins will make the steering a bit smoother and a little lighter.

Thanks for the great instructable. I had a bit of trouble making it work but it turn out to be the HC-06 bluetooth, doesnt work with your sketch. I got a HC-05 and it works great.
Arduino: How to Build an Obstacle Avoiding Robot
That is a cool little bot, I will have to make one.
yep that would work well.
Hi I couldn't get this to work, the LED will turn on and off if I use arudino serial monitor, and the phones blue tooth finds and connects to the module, there just seems to be no communication between the blue tooth module an the arduino. Ive tried 2 different HC6 modules and with and without the voltage divider. Any ideas?

That would be great in the sand.
Thanks for the tip, I will show my student your instructable.
