Hot water cylinder question! Answered

Ok, so you have a hot water cylinder full of hot water... no matter in which way it is heated, how does it stay hot all the way until all the hot water is used up when you having a shower or whatever?... which seems like a full tank, piping hot until the end. If you are replacing the hot water with cold water as it is being used would this not just regulate the water temp and make it colder straight away? If you have a hot cup of tea, just add a little cold water... why does this not happen with a hot water cylinder? Thanks

Small VERY Hot Plate

I am looking for someone who can design for me to make or make for me a specialized hot plate. I need it to be small like 3" by 2" and to get very hot as much as 700 degrees is desired. I want the power source to be 400watts. I know this seems hard but my reasoning is that the smaller size means higher temps with less wattage. I would use this as a hot plate that evaporates liquid from an airstream as it passes by - a dryer if you like. I would use 2 to cause the air to have to pass both in a zig-zag path. I would like to have a solid surface so eventually I see the plate encased in ceramic but for this it need only be metal. Can you help? Contact me here on the site to discuss more details Coog

How to mount Peltier elements?

A peltier is a element that gets very hot on one side, and very cold on the other side. Cold enough (with enough power) to make frost all over it. So. I got one, I want to make nice cold cold air. I read wiki, if you don't heat sink it, it will self destroy. If I heatsink the cold side, then a fan on the heat sink to blow the cold freeze air, will it be fine? Or must I cool the hot side too? Peltiers are cool :D

Why does this solder connection only connect for a short while?

Hi,  I recently (as of last night) built a hot wire foam cutter and it has a small problem. Every time I plug it in, the wall wart produces a high pitched whine and the wire does not heat up. I have to unsolder the wire and re-solder it every time to make it work. Is there a way to resolve this problem? The nicrome wire is attached to a loop of copper wire and the end of that copper wire is soldered to my power source.

Liquid Cooling - Body

Its so hot and... well.... I made a device to cool myself down! I might make an instructable, but basically, I took two 20oz bottles with caps, poked 2 holes in the top of one, 1 hole in the other. I then ran tubing between the two, and in the bottle with 2 holes, I added a bit of tubing to put the air intake below water level. I filled the 2'holer up with icewater, and blew a bit on the air intake to get it started. It works very well, to say the least! :P

Alrighty, sorry for the noob question, but i am very very new to this, i'm tryin hook 3 10mm LEDs to run off a 9v battery, i hooked it via the LEDcalc with correct resistors, it works just fine, but when i try to add a on/off switch into the mix the 9V gets very very hot. could it be ... the switch i am using... the 24 gauge wire to connect it all.... how i have connected the on/off switch into the mix , instead of connecting it straight to a battery i have added extra wires and put the switch in between the battery and the start/end of the LED chain... should i bump it down 6v instead with the correct resistors instead of the 9v also if you could explain why the 9v was heating up so much that would be great too....
