I also need to know how to build heating element for this size box and where to purchase the plastic. Thanks
If the sacrificial 2" wide insert was a bit wider, one could make additional inserts and drill holes through the insert to accommodate sanding drum attachments. The sawdust would build up in the holes but you could slide the insert out to dump it. The sanding kits from HF come in various diameters...

I'd like to find a source for a self-contained LED unit with battery and switch for inserting into a carved (turned, actually) mushroom. An AAA battery would almost be too large but would be ok for lack of anything else. Something cheap, with a pushbutton switch on the bottom, that would fit in the stem of the mushroom. Any leads would be appreciated, thanks!

I plan on making an insert that goes into an experimental flume. The frame of the insert will be about 3" x 24" and will be constructed of acrylic. Onto the surface of the insert i will affix a rough bed of stone/rock. Stones will be ~ half-inch diameter. Does anyone have guidance as to what type of material (epoxy?) I should use for the base of the flume into which the rocks will be placed?

Well, this is the second soldering fiasco I've documented on Instructables. I recently got a new tip for my soldering iron, but when I inserted it, I forgot to ensure that it was inserted all the way. When I turned the iron on, I gradually smelled what seemed like burnt plastic and resistors. I turned it off after about 3-5 min. of this, not realizing that the tip wasn't inserted. What did I just do to my soldering iron, and what did I inhale for a short period of time?

Add threads to new projects as well as modify or repair existing products. If the plastic you are using can be melted with a soldering iron you can place the insert on the part you want to add threads to. Then heat the insert with a soldering iron and press in to the part as the insert melts the plastic. Try with and without pilot hole. Excess plastic can be cleaned up with a dremel tool. You can also try soldering the inserts to the surface of metals that can be soldered such as copper and brass. Add these as threaded standoffs by soldering to bare copper on you circuit boards. Just the right color for steam punk projects. This part can be pressed into some materials with the right size pilot hole. Get them here: 50 pieces for $9.00.

I've made a guide and I need to insert two images in the intro. When I create the guide I'm able to insert images, also more than one, but I don't see them in the preview. Maybe I can insert only one image which goes as the cover of the guide? Thanks!

I have a few secret upcoming projects in which I plan on using carbide turning inserts. Both for woodworking and metalworking projects, but not machining - their intended use.I was wondering if anyone has any experience using these. I was looking at buying square inserts, but I can find only shims like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/292307002360 . Do you know if these are even slightly sharp? I mean, can I scrape wood with them with my hand, not in a milling cutter? Will they cut wood?If not, I was thinking about getting something like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/173054401114 or https://www.ebay.com/itm/391346000853How sharp actually are these actual carbide inserts? Will these be able to scrape hardwood if I for example, hold them with pliers and scrap them across wood?Thanks!

If user input is inserted without modification into an SQL query, then the application becomes vulnerable to SQL Injection, like in the following example: $unsafe_variable = $_POST['user_input']; mysql_query("INSERT INTO `table` (`column`) VALUES ('$unsafe_variable')"); That's because the user can input something like value'); DROP TABLE table;--, and the query becomes: INSERT INTO `table` (`column`) VALUES('value'); DROP TABLE table;--') What can be done to prevent this from happening? Thanks!

I'm improving a published project over the weekend. I'm thinking it might be nice to use colored font (for distinction) on the specific improvement/changes/inclusions. Is this possible using the rich editor or by inserting html code? If it is possible, what color would you recommend?

I did a quick search and didn't see anything, so my apologies if this has already been reported: I am finding whenever I use bold to highlight words in my documents, an empty space is getting automatically inserted at the end of the word. For example, if I end this sentence with a word in bold and the turn off bold before using the period, there will end up being a space between the last word and the period which I did not put there and can not remove.

. When trying to insert a (valid) link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_order_(United_States) , I get the following error msg:Invalid formatting in the comment.. Getting rid of everything after the "r" cleared it up, so I'm assuming it's the parentheses that trip the error.
