I just uploaded 200MB of images for a new instructable, and I can't find them in "my library" or anywhere else for that matter. I used the new uploader, and I'm in Firefox 3.0.6 using no funny plugins. (no dragdrop or anything.) I've waited several minutes, since I figured there might be a delay for thumbnail generation or something, but I just can't find the images anywhere. What am I doing wrong?

Idea for a forge?

I was watching deconstructed and watched the episode on transformers and toasters and i was thinking...can i use a toaster to heat a peice of metal to red hot? The episode says voltage is passed through a high resistance nickel/chome alloy that produes high heat (over 1000 degrees farenheit). Is there a way to hack a toaster to heat a peice of steel or such to a high heat using a toaster?

Gear Study

The last Friday of the month is a build day around Instructables HQ. I've been meaning to create some art involving gears of different pitches, so I took part of my build day to do a study in gears. These are two laser-cut acrylic gears I made on our Epilog 36EXT that are half 10 in pitch diameter and half 20 in pitch diameter. I advanced the 20 pitch side about one-half of a pitch. The gears were designed in OMAX Layout, which just happens to have a nice gear profile generator. I'm hopeful about putting together a set that gradually change pitch diameter.There's a bit of slop between the gears, and I'm taking advantage of it (at least in this set) to keep the teeth from colliding at the transition. They only rotate freely in one direction; in the other they bind.

Annoyance: Formatting/URL mistakes suppress preview completely

A new feature deployed recently checks the URLs we put inside comments (i.e., the first token inside square brackets) and reports if we haven't given a valid URL.The annoying bug is that the whole preview is suppressed, and there is no indication of where in the text the error might be. Briefly, the preview actually showed the whole text, but with the error part called out in big red box. That was better, and would be nice to get back.Failing that, maybe just putting the malformed URL into the preview as a literal string, highlighted or underlined or something might be helpful.

Water-proofing papier-mache...how can this be done, please?

Hi, Thanks for stopping by! I would like to do a large (2m2) outdoor papier-mache project. Essentially it's a large plant holder display and so would need to hold about 25lbs in weight and be able for me to water the pot plants it will hold. These are my concerns, and I would seriously appreciate some advice if you can: - How do I waterproof the whole thing? I was hoping to use strong wallpaper paste and then seal it with about 3 coats of oil-based paint like eggshell. The other worry I have is where I cut holes into the papier-mache there will then be an unsealed exposed edge where water could get in a separate the layers: I don't feel that paint would be sufficient for such thin areas/egdes...what would you do? Again, thanks for reading me, please help if you can. Kevin
