    Making Air Compressor

    This doesn't give ANY instructions ! What kind of gauges are used ? What is used for safety to prevent overpressure ?This video has a link to BUY the plans. This is just showing that you made the compressor but it isn't instructions. This is an AD to buy the plans.

  • Fix Broken Headphone Band - Superglue Trick

    Do you know if this is waterproof ? I used it on an aquarium pump and submerged it after 15 minutes of cure time. It was running under cold water for about 10 hours. After removing it , everything appeared as strong as ever.I know it survived 10 hours but what about a month or year ? Does anyone know ?

    Baking Soda Reinforcing Glue Repair

    This may be waterproof too ! I fixed an aquarium pump with a 1/16 gap and after 15 minutes, I put it in water for about 10 hours running. After removing it, the glue appeared as solid as ever. Using only superglue had failed to stick but the superglue and baking soda worked great.If anyone knows if this is a permanent waterproof solution let me know since I know some things can survive a day but not a month or more in water.

    Building POF Home User Network

    Ethernet to POF (fiber ) to connect to my cable modem and HDTV card. It was about $40 on Amazon called a Ethernet Media Converter. So this way it can be struck by lightning and my computer would still be safe. Maybe the local EMP might also do damage but it would definitely make it less likely !

    I am just looking for a way to connect a WIRED 100mb cable modem or HD tuner to POF fiber by using some low cost adapter. I have seen the SFF modules that plug into a network card in a computer or switch. That would take care of the computer side but is there any adapter that plugs into a WIRED 10/100/1000 network to FIBER on the other side ? I can't find one but I am not familiar with business network equipment.I have see that the SFF modules have a Fiber In / Out and an electrical serial +- input and output but since they are using PECL and running a 1GHz speed it wouldn't be as simple as connecting the wires. And since wired network uses several pairs vs just 1 fiber also.So is there a simple wired network to fiber adapter like the kind that plugs into a switch or computer NIC but fo...

    You should probably add a poly coating to this to protect the board and protect the people using it from lead. A spray coating would probably work. Any chemist or other people that know if the lead would leach through ? I know it was mentioned before but nobody mentioned a solution ! You could also use plexiglass on both sides too.No making decorations from old depleted uranium or plutonium rods you have laying around either. Just make sure you wash your hands after handling them......and don't mind the glow your hands will have at night. It just saves you from needing a flashlight.No if only I could find that core memory I had years ago. It is amazing these things were hand made !
