Studding leather

Hey guys, Okay so I came across a bunch of spiked studs which I throught were screw on, but it turns out they're not. The backs look like they should be able to hammer into the stud... but Im not sure of how. I've tried as many ways as I could think of to hammer them in but the stud always slips sideways preventing the back from going in .... Anybody have any ideas?

What kind of strength do studs (2x4) in your wall have? Is there a way to "boost" their strength?

I just moved into a new place, and am renting.  I want to install a hammock into the studs, but the landlord feels it will put too much strain on the frame.  The studs are 2x4, and I was wondering, if by placing a 2x6 or something board between (bridging) two studs, if I could achieve enough strength to not hurt the studs. Any suggestions welcome :) Thanks Lisa

I feel like I'm missing something... ? Answered

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."

How do you connect the wiring for a new doorbell to the home's nearest electrical outlet? Answered

I want to connect a new doorbell's wiring to the nearest electrical outlet, but there is a stud that blocks a direct connection to any outlet.

Sketchbook Customizing Help

I purchased a pretty standard black sketchbook with a hardcover, and I had this really cool idea of lining the entire back with 2 rows of metal studs. The metal studs are the kind with four prongs that are meant to pierce through whatever material, but with the said material in this case being the spine of a book and all, im kind of lost for ideas. does anyone have any ideas how i can do this?

Doornob touch sensor

I took apart a stud finder to see how it worked. Did a quick google search and figured out they work similar to tough sensitive lamps (capacitance). So after soldering an on off switch to replace the push button on it, I taped it to my door, and fine tuned the sensitivity wheel. Now when someone touches the doorknob (on either side of the door), It lights ups.

Need Data Sheet for old diode laser. RCA SG2001

I have been digging though my assortment of electronic components, stuff that has gathered dust for years.  One item I came across still new in the original package is a laser diode.  RCA # SG 2001.  I have tried searching internet with out much luck other than a PDF about how to drive the diode.  ( short pulses high current ) I see the same part number referenced for other products.  I did find it listed but there is no data showing that I can find.  Yea...it is over 30 years old !  No reason not to know what it is or what it could be used for, perhaps for the pocket engraver? Would much appreciate any information anyone may have about this chip.  I believe it is fairly high power IR diode.   It is stud mount with a single lead exiting the center of the stud bolt.  A bit less than 1/4" dia case.

I would be open to other ideas that didn't involve a frame, as long as they didn't require me to drill holes into walls or rely on possibly unstable studs in an old building.  I'd like something that wasn't in a door frame, but if its easy to use and put up and take down, I'm in.

What is a good way to reinforce a wall? Answered

I have a recliner that is broken beyond repair (the back falls flat), so I have it propped up against a wall, but I'm concerned that I'm going to end up with a hole in my wall.  I've been trying to think of a way to reinforce the wall so this doesn't happen, but I've been unable to make a decision.  My only idea is to use a large, thin, rectangular piece of wood and screw it to the studs... figured that would spread out the pressure and do less harm to my wall. Any better ideas? And no, I'm not trying to fix the recliner, already tried that, and I'm NOT throwing it away :)

Tracing Plastic Water Pipe Underground.

Earlier today, while removing tree stumps, on of my crew struck water. The theme song for the Beverly Hillbillies came up. "when up from the ground came a bubbling crude! ...oil, that is... " except it was water, and we went scrambling to find the water shutoff. Lawn Sprinkler systems usually have plastic pipe a few inches underground.  No metal.   :.   Can't find it with metal detector. Potential Options: AC wires can be tracked through walls by the electromagnetic flux around them. Stud sensors today also have a circuit for AC wiring. Could something like that be used?  Although city water has some minerals in it, does it have enough to conduct electricity well enough for an electric pulse sensor? If the water in the system was temporarily made salty enough for an EM signal to be traced, would it mess up the lawn once you dumped that salty h2o? Whata bout conductivity of a fertilizer mix? Medical scans- barium- mildly radioactive. mmmm.... yeah. right. Chemical sniffers- sniff out those semi-soft pipes? Like dogs sniffing out contraband in the airport... Use water flow to carry a fine wire through the pipe, then track an EM signal in that wire. sonic imaging (or at least detection- like the stud sensor) ground penetrating radar... That's all I can think of.  Every option I can think of has issues. Is there any precedent for something that works in this situation?

Glueing Plastics Together? Answered

When I say plastics, I mean more specifically, LEGOs. I'm glueing them together because I'm trying to make LEGO headphones, so I would need something permanent. I've heard people using cyanoacrylates and clear plumbing glue (anyone heard of Oatey?) I thought about using hot glue, but I'm not sure if that would give me the bond that I'm looking for. Would Gorilla Glue work too? Or would it be a bit of an overkill? I simply need a glue that will hold the LEGOs through enough wear-and-tear to last, and no discolouring of the pieces. And when I glue, should I glue the sides of the pieces together, or put glue around the dotted studs on the tops of the bricks? Any other glues or advice that you could enlighten me with would be greatly appreciated. :)
