230vac extract fan speed control - help

Hi I'm just in the process of refurbishing the bathroom of a flat I bought. It's all been plastered out already and I realised I've no extract! So, I created a plenum at hi level and mounted a fan under floor and have ducted it out. I want to run the small AC extract fan 24/7 at low speed (kinda tick over speed) and then switch it to hi speed when either the humidity goes up (cos the shower is running) or the light goes on (assumes someone's using the WC!). I can't get to the lighting wiring so I'll need to sense that remotely. I can fit a humidity sensor in the duct work. I've tried everywhere to find something suitable with zero joy. Is anyone here able to point me in the right direction?

Led Clock, Need Help. Using Arduino

I want to make a clock where there is a led blue or clear marking each hour around a circle, the led is on for that hour and then moves to the next led in the circle for the next hour.  pretty simple.  it will look kind of like an analog clock except without the hands.  for the minutes, i want the same leds as the hours to light up but since there will only be twelve, it will only be accurate within 5 minutes.  the minutes need to light up less bright that the hours so that i can differentiate between the two.  I have an arduino uno, breadboard, resistors and leds.  Please Help!!!

Fan knitter stomped on by BBC

A Doctor Who fan, known as Mazzmatazz, has been legally stomped on by the BBC for creating her own patterns for the Adipose and Ood creatures.She never charged for the pattern, nor did she pretend it was official, but somebody sold a completed version on ebay, so the Beeb went OTT on her.According to TechnoLlama their action has no genuine basis in law, but she caved in out of fear of corporate lawyers.The BBC's action is a real shame, because it could signal problems for the thousands of fan artists (writers, musicians, artists) around the world who express themselves (for free) through the shared ground of Doctor Who (or any other BBC drama).The knitter's websiteTechnoLlama blog postBBC slant

I found a fun internet game through another forum, and I thought I'd share for internet reputations!It's called My Brute, where you make a character out of randomly selected body parts and accessories, and then battle. It's not a hard game, just something to do in your spare time when you've got nothing better to do. IF you win a battle, you level up. If you lose, you lose, then try again.

Effects on metal

So I really like this clock.  I think I'll buy it soon. But as a beginner's art project, I'm trying to replicate some of the metal effects here.  I'm curious for techniques on how to accomplish some things, like: The back plate is copper, which the artist says is "oxidized".  I expect oxidation to turn copper green, blue, or black, not this silver/grey color.  Any ideas how this was done?  Is it just that it's a light oxidation? I really like the metal texturing here.  I've been able to replicate something similar on copper plate by hand-sanding in one direction with a fine-grained sandpaper.  But notice the vertical texturing on the backplate - how would that have been done?? I like the polished metal look of the minute hand contrasting with the reflective look of the hour hand.  How would you do that - similar way as the backplate?  Same with the gear? I've actually made what I think are much prettier nails by taking old (originally quite rusted) square iron nails, removing the rust and grinding the crap out of them with a bench grinder until I get a cool reflective finish.  Doing the grinding in patches gives it almost a hammered metal look while keeping the reflectiveness.  I think the effect is cool and really works with the "old-but-new" look of the square nails.  I'll post before+after pictures if anyone's interested.

Pirate Station Robot Helmet

Hello everyone! Name's DJ_DAN. Just need some URGENT HELP! I just saw some videos of a Drum & Bass Festival called Pirate Station Network. It's robot head design really got me, and I like to make a fully wearable DJ  helmet with animated LEDs for the eyes, and a black grid-ish metal mesh for the mouth. Something like this: http://www.featurepics.com/FI/Thumb300/20100216/Black-Metal-Grid-1460869.jpg And really basic animations for the eyes, like fading in & out, flashing, standing still, etc. The base could be made from fiberglass or mabye carbon fiber. The eye "lens" maybe could be made from plexiglas or something like that. And the "headphones" could be the part of the helmet, with built-in headphones. I just slighty edited the design of the original PSN robot helmet, which looks like something like this: http://www.4shared.com/photo/3miIkBII/robothelmetdesign.html PLEASE!

Will pay for premade LED/LCD audio spectrum analyzer

To see what I'm talking about, search Youtube for "audio spectrum analyzer" and there will be tons of videos, with either LED or LCD devices. Unfortunately I do not have time/knowledge to build one myself, so I went hunting. The only place I could find started at $130, which I thought was a bit above what I would pay for that, considering you could probably buy an old used graphical equalizer for a tenth, and take it apart. So could anyone pre-asemble one such device for me? The price to build it obviously depends on the size of the thing. If you tell me your price I will navigate towards a fitting price for a fitting size.

My complete ball tower showcase

Just figured I'd post the images of all my ball machines (at least the ones I HAVE images of, mind you :D)Click on the pictures to see details of them.Fun Facts:-Although Enigma was much larger than Dynamo, it took half as long to build.-On Dynamo, the part with the Flexi-Tube and Ferris Wheel was initially a Maze (or, as I call it, a Ribcage). Due to balls having trouble making it through, I decided to replace it.-On Enigma, I had initially planned it to be two 8-foot-tall towers. Unfortunately, with all the elements I wanted to put in, I had to alter my design to make them all fit.-Both of the two machines have at least two loops on them and a spiral bowl.-The red staircase in Enigma goes across the machine instead of from one tower to another one adjacent to it.-Both machines have seven path separators.EDIT: New ball machine added.Feel free to comment, and if you want to showcase any ball towers you've built, be my guest.Here are vids:

Crazy fun, or a slow cruel death - I can't decide...

This is just crazy - two Ocean Engineering students created a "hamster-powered submarine" from "materials derived from common household objects" that connected a hamster wheel in a sealed, air-supplied vessel to a propeller, allowing hamsters to take themselves on aquatic jaunts.  (via BoingBoing Twitter feed) Seriously, it's a submarine powered by a hamster in its wheel.  I can't decide if the hamster is having loads of fun, or is being driven mad with terror. It doesn't seem very fast, though... They documented the build on their own website, but if you would like to see an instructable on it, go to the video and leave a comment to say so...

Please could anyone Confirm what i intend to do is Correct ???

Hello again ! Ok well, after another week of major research, i have a theoretical concept for my battery packs that i intend to create but would very-much-so appreciate it if anyone could confirm that what im about to do is correct in the sense that it will serve my purposes! Scenario: I Have a pinhole wireless Camera & Receiver, the camera will be attached to an RC 1/10th Scale Buggy and the receiver will be near me, in a bag, on the floor... Instructions that came with the gear states: The Camera should receive 8 volts DC and will consume up to 200mA per hour... The Receiver should receive 12 volts DC and will consume up to 500mA per Hour... (Yet the receiver runs off a 9v battery!) As i am still waiting for some battery holders & a few other components to arrive i have put together the following for prototyping, please could anyone confirm that this would  work as i intend it to ? : Li-ion Pack (For Wireless Camera): 14.4v { Four x 3.6v Cells } Connected in series Charging Start @ 13.2v Charging Finish @ 16.8v To Emit 8 Volts, 1A Max: i will Use an ''LM2940T'' Semiconductor i will want to Either BUILD (preferably) a charger OR Buy this CHARGER... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Normal Battery Pack for Wireless Receiver: 24v { 16 x 1.2v Cells } -Individually charged- + FOUR x 4-AA Battery Holders (In Series) To Emit 12 Volts, 0.5mA Max: i will Use an '' L78M12CV'' Semiconductor -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The usage i currently get from a humble 9v battery connected to the camera and receiver (two 9v batteries in total) is WORSE than abysmal and i only get upto 15mins of decent record-time from the wireless gear so i will be making the two battery-packs above to get a much-longer run-time.... Questions: 1. Will my power-packs work as i intend to use them ? 2. When i go to build the Li-ion battery-pack i really want to include some circuitry for Deep-Discharge Prevention & Over-Charge Protection, could anyone please point me in the right direction for a schematic please ??? A MAJOR thank-You to all that have helped me in the past & A-MAJOR Thank-You in advance for everyone's help again!

web site build

Hi all guys and ladies ...  so glad i found this site looks like fun. I found you all here due to a search i did looking on tips of building and hosting my own web site, and what i read here in great detail with no fuzz i just thought was the bees knees. I do have one problem but, if i use my ip address to host my own server on an old machine and use a new pc for working here at home, the ip address will be the same, will this not lead to people trying to gain excess to my every day to day pc? jamstir.

welding cast iron to mild steel

Welding cast iron to mild steel is for the most part done with ornamental iron such as gates and fences. the ornaments are typicaly cast iron such as spearpoints and fit over the top of what ever square tubing size ect you are working with. If you weld say with a mig welder in the normal mannor you rweld will cold roll and ball on you leaving a poor appearance that you will have to spend time grinding to make look good. Fortunatly it is not a matter of strenght or how much penetration ect. It is just ornamentation but must look good. Now take your mig welder with say 035 wire and use pure argon..(less spatter). Turn your welders heat up somewhat past what your normanl setting would be for what ever thickness you are using. Use breif spot welding like techniques overlapping as needed. You will find that this makes a good wash bead with no undercut or cold roll. The argon gas helps to keep down all the extra spatter welding cast iron to mild steel seems to cause. Larger peices such as caps for say 4by4 gate posts or fence posts, i preheat as uniformely as possibly to just under cherry red then weld as described. It welds badly because cast iron is actualy dirty, literaly with particles of dirt in the cheap castings, wich the ornaments are. Not haviong the need to be anealed or nodular for instance. If the welds are not going to show then you dont have to do this. It will still weld, just do not expect the clean perfect welds you are used to.  And NO I do not have PICS AND I dont own a digital camera nor do i know how to use one let alone put them on a computer.

Attitude Indicator...For a car....

How would one make a cheap attitude indicator for a jeep...i go offroading and i just thought it would be cool to make my cockpit look more like a cockpit, im putting up some toggle switches and a couple other cool accents but i thought the coolest would be something that shows me how far my jeep is tipping when i flex it.  So if anyone has any crazy ideas on how to pull one off let me know, ive had some ideas of like pinning a floating compass to an axis so it only tips back and forth...but the real electronic ones for aviation are thousands of dollars and very impractical.  Help me out here people....  email me at artbynathanmenke@gmail.com if you have any ideas

An hour and a half gone.

I just lost an hour and a half of work, because I trusted this website a little too much.  I was starting up some directions for a project I want to do, and my computer lost the wireless connection. I clicked "save," and the page did two things. First, it completely crashed, saying it could not update. Two, this idiotic "Updating" frame came up, that BLOCKED me from being able to copy and paste the material that took all that time to put together. I know you guys can't control everything, and that it's not your fault my wireless router is stupid, but you really, REALLY need to get rid of that "Updating" splash that blocks us from being able to access what we just wrote.  I know now I'll get comments on here saying, "You should save more often, moron." Yes. I should have. I should have written it first in Word as well. In fact, there's a lot of things I should have done. I guess I'm spoiled by autosave utilities.
