Found a baby snapping turtle?

Hi, recently my brother and I found a baby snapping turtle on the road. Do you know how or what we should do with it? There is a pond down the road, but before you say we should release it, keep in mind that it is only a little over an inch long. Should we take care of it until it gets big and then let it go? All help is appreciated.

heavy duty snap source for making leather bracelets?

Hi,   Have been looking at the tutorials for making leather bracelets.  Purchased a snap setter from a craft store but the snaps aren't deep enough.  The leather is too thick for the snaps, it barely gets through the leather.   There's no way it could make the connection to attach the snaps to the leather.  The leather I'm using is about 1/8" or 3mm thick; about the thickness of a belt.  Suggestions for sources? Thanks!

Snap Circuits IC's, can I get the same functions in a small IC?

Hi. My kid (and I) have recently started messing around with Snap Circuits. We have a specific project in mind and want to design the circuit using Snap Circuits, then shrink it to fit in an Altoids box. Question: Is there a direct facsimile available of the integrated chips in the Snap Circuits box? Meaning, the same input voltage and current, where I can assemble all the matching components to my Snap Circuits circuit (switches, resistors, capacitors), and then just switch in the new (small) IC for where the Snap Circuits IC goes. This would also help with troubleshooting. Any thoughts? Here is the Elenco supplied schematic description of the Snap Circuits' IC: http://www.snapcircuits.net/downloads/ic_info.pdf

Here are some versions of my wacky snaps, please see my previous question. I got the rivets right, but the snap situation is grossly lacking. Good think I practiced on some thinner leather. I wonder if the thin leather is the problem since the cap sticks out too much maybe? Thanks!

Snap-fit design

Hello all, The left panel in the image I have uploaded represents aluminium frame, 1mm thick. What I would like to do is design another aluminium or plastic piece that can snap into the inside of this frame (something like the right panel in the image). The frame, once positioned in, would be a permanent fixture. I have looked at different kind of snap-fit joints but I'm not sure on what's the most appropriate design in terms of simplicity and functionality. Another issue is calculating the actual dimensions of the snap-fit joints. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Why don't you sew the snap studs to your project and snap the LilyPad to the studs directly? I assume there are two possible responses to my question: #1 (my preferred response, of course) "Oh my gosh, that's a brilliant idea!" #2 "Sorry but the connector holes in the LilyPad are not compatible with snap studs."

Why are my snap settings so messy? Answered

Hi! My snap settings are messy. Maybe I'm using too much pressure? Any extra tips for getting this right? I have line 20 Tandy snaps and the cap part seems to get quite crooked when I hit it with the setting tool with a metal hammer. Hitting it with the rubber mallet was fine for the rivets, but the mallet didn't do much. I have the cap in the divot of the setter metal, but just have that on my floor, not a quartz slab nor actual anvil. I looked up a Tandy snap setting vid and they suggested rotating the snap setter when hitting it. I tried this and the snaps got even more crooked! I tried many times until my downstairs neighbor hit his ceiling in protest :-) I can't seem to upload a photo of my crooked cap part and will try again when I can get to a computer. I think I got the stud-post part in ok with a manual hand setting tool (came with a manual punch set.) But that manual setting tool didn't work for the cap combo part.

snap board concept

Hello everybody, this is a new idea of mine that I want to share with you. the snap board concept. It is made of zip lock bags, card board, and duck tape. This idea could be used in notebooks or you could just make a wall of this and make all different bags and holders that snap on to the zip lock rail. You can slide the bags from side to side if you want. I might put this in a notebook case so that I can customize it with pencil holders and other organizers. Or I might make it so that I can snap on different covers and stuff like that . Please tell me any other ideas to use this idea and comments. I will post an Instructables when I make a true model and get feedback. Please comment and subscribe

These #@$% Snaps!? Answered

Im glad to hear I wasnt the only one having problems with these snaps. Much like Kelpek, whenever I tried to set the cap with the socket it would bend to one side. I even tried applying the leather washer so there wouldnt be too much space for the cap to bend, but it did any ways. I purchased the line 20 snaps and setter from tandy. My leather is about 6 oz, not sure if thats the problem, but i measured the post and it wasnt more than 1/8 beyond the leather. I was able to complete the project, but my level of frustration reached an all time high. I included a few pics of the scrap leather and leather from the wallet that I practiced on. Not sure if there is any additonal help you can provide.

What would you make with a desktop CNC milling machine

The MTM Snap is an open source CNC desktop milling machine designed at the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms. The frame, milling head and bed are milled from 1/2" HDPE and are designed to snap together around the other required hardware for fast and easy construction. It's designed primarily for use manufacturing PCBs but the project site lists waxes and plastics as other materials that it can be used to machine. I've been given one to play with, if YOU had access to one, what would you use it to make?

Fix Rattan/Bamboo furniture - NOT WICKER!!!

I recently bought a mid-century rattan dining table with four chairs.  I want to replace the cushions on the chairs - two piece, but they have snaps to keep the cushions in place.  I do not plan on having snaps on the new cushions, but that leaves me with the male part of the snaps.  If I pull them out, which I want to do, I will be left with a bunch of holes and no clue how to fix them, and since I haven't removed them yet, I have no idea how deep the holes will be.  I am open to any and all suggestions.   Thank you!   PS, I've tried to upload photos, but it's not working.

File Box for Index Cards

For some time I've been searching on Instructables for how to make a file box for index cards. No matter what word order or word types I used, what came up was making stuff out of index cards, or other odd stuff.  But nothing that got me what I was searching for. How to make a file box for index cards, needs to be basic & simple, not laser cutting (as don't have such). However, do have a box cutter, packing tape, handheld power tools: circular saw, saber saw, drill, just no tabletop tools, & no way to make, & no room to put any tabletop for such. I've looked at the Snap-N-Store collapsible index card file boxes, & have head/read by customer reviews that the snaps don't necessarily stay snapped.  I'm thinking if made w/cardboard or fiberboard (as the Snap-N-Store is) that something like corner brackets/braces (just not metal ones for wood)  can be used instead of snaps, & would hold together better. The Snap-N-Store boxes I'm wanting hold 1000 cards ea, & for ea size of index card 3X5, 4X6, & 5X8 I just need some help for a pattern & building instructions. Can anyone do an Instructable for such so I can follow & make them? Remember, I don't have, nor get access to, nor know how to use a laser cutter, or tabletop powertools. I just have handheld powertools of circular saw, saber saw, drill, & boxcutter, scissors & the usual handtools & hardware. Thanks
