Can anyone help with troubleshooting a tesla coil?

After working on a tesla coil off and on for a few years I finally finished building one, but it is running into several problems. The only problem that I can't figure out is that despite following the basic tesla coil diagram the toroid will not create a jumping spark; however the gap generator still produces a spark. The coil is running off of a 15kv nst with a gfi built in.

Converting audio ouput to audio input for phone

Hello,so i did this project of a spy mic using the lm386 amplifier, i took the schematic from afrotechmods, and it works. what i wanted to do was modify this circuit in such a way that instead of letting us listen to the voices of that time, i wanted to make it work on a phone, using the 3.5mm jack, so i could record the audio in my phone, the original circuit diagram is attached. i also added my modified diagram. i just want to know if it will work, and i wont end up damaging my phone. what should i do to make this work right? the ''speakers'' in the original diagram are just earphones, no high power speakers. any help will be appreciated, thanks

Is my axolotl sick or hurt? Answered

Hello there, I have had a axolotl for a few months now and i have noticed he has a white patch on his side and on his head its white and sort of fluffy looking and i don't  know if something is wrong or is just color on his skin? I have added a photo of him (but its not to clear because i didn't use a camera flash on it) he is a Wild type i think and he lives in a 2 foot tank  on his own with heating around 20'c-18'c and a filter and i clean it all out very often and he eats things like worms, shrimp pellets, pieces of fresh beef or snails ( all of these i make sure are fine and healthy for him to eat) The only thing strange about him is that he has a few extra fingers on one hand (but he had that  when i got him). It would be great if anyone could help me with this question and could tell me if he's o.k and/or if you know what to to do. Thank you from, CrazyBassFisherWoman and Norbert the axolotl,

Barackuda Internals

Alright, I grabbed some more internals for the latest version of the Barackuda. I can't believe it's already been over a year since the last time I updated my status update thread. It's sad that nothing much goes on here, but I'll still maintain activity as long as I have ideas. I bought a home in the summer and have since been doing adulty things but I've been looking for more hobbies, so I'm still interested in doing a K'nex gun building guide series for newbies. I otherwise haven't built much. But anyway. For those that don't know, which I imagine are few, the Barackuda (portmanteau of Barack as in Barack Obama and barracuda) is basically a compact bolt action repeater with a small, removable drum magazine. I believe this is the first time a magazine like this has been successfully implemented on a weapon. I spent years figuring out the design and trying to perfect it, never quite satisfied, but I really need to just throw it out there. I'll get full instructions eventually. Hopefully these will do for now. Sorry if some of the pictures ended up sideways. I was using my phone and rushing. Let me know if you'd like any other pictures.

How to test for nickel levels in soil, water and plant based food? Allergy sufferer needs serious help.?

I have an allergy to nickel. It causes severe blisters so I must avoid it at all costs. Unfortunately, nickel is present in soil and water at varying levels and is absorbed by all plant based foods. There is some literature out there that lists which foods are worse, but are vague at best, and simply avoiding all plant based foods is not a realistic option. I would like to know if there is a way to test soil and water for nickel and determine how much is present? Or is there a way to test plant based foods for the nickel levels they have absorbed? I have researched this extensively and can only find information about getting tested for metals within the body. Confirming this would not change my dilemma. I have to work diligently at avoiding any further exposure to nickel as I understand there is no way of removing this metal once it is ingested. I have seen many specialists and their help is not only expensive, but limited (due to a lack of research in this area).  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. If anyone needs reference material regarding nickel in soil, water and plant based food should Read This from Ohio State University.

How can i compress a biogas from a compost tank without risk of ignition.

I already have minor semblance of a design but, i always prefer to consult the hivemind before doing something potentially stupid(i'm missing enough fingers). so, big picture is to create basically a sealed septic tank tied into the water lines of a residential house, which would produce methane to be stored year round then used during the cold season. not so much that i could cut off the natural gas line, but enough to reduce the bill.the design so far is a gas line coming from the septic tank connected to a bladder sitting inside a large tube. once the bladder reaches a nominal capacity, it will trip a sensor near the top of the tube activating a compressor until the bladder retracts to a lower set optical sensor turning off the compressor. somewhere in this mix i have the intent to set up a large air filter filled with that "oxygen eater" stuff they use in food storage applications. as well as several o2 sensors in the main line set up to stop the compressor and activate a solenoid valve to make sure no oxygen ever get to the compressor. what i dont know, is what kind of compressor i should be using to avoid any type of possible spark. proper placement of the o2 sensors, and if a giant air filter for eating oxygen already exists or is that something im going to have to make the hard way.

Suggestion - Allow us to edit/submit "Rich Snippets" meta-description in search engine results

Rich snippets are "the term used to describe structured data markup that site operators can add to their existing HTML, which in turn allow search engines to better understand what information is contained on each web page". In plain English, it's what you see when you search for something in google. While it might not necessarily help with SEO all the time, it does help any potential viewer know what the link is about, and whether it's worth clicking on. While the subject can be a bit more complex, all I'm referring to here is the meta-description. Currently, the meta-description seems to be, by default, the first ~300 characters of the Instructable (or auto-generated by Google). If you write any sort of intro, it probably won't be relevant to help understand the project at all (out of context). Suggestion - It would be great to allow users to submit a meta-description via a simple text box, perhaps on the "Instructable Preview" window where the Cover Image can be changed. If they want they can submit a 50-300 character meta-description that better explains what the whole guide is about, or if not they can leave it blank for it to auto-generate as is already the case.Being familiar with WordPress, this would be a trivial plugin. I'm sure a site as big as Instructables can see the potential benefits (increased click-throughs, reduced bounce rates...), while also knowing that it wouldn't be intrusive to users or particularly hard to implement.Just wanted to give my opinion. Like in the attached image, it can be a bit frustrating to have no control over the meta-description since it isn't always representative of the project. In the case above where it was auto-generated by Google, it doesn't give any incentive at all to click since it doesn't make much sense as a description of the project.

"Bug" - Issue with image importer converting .PNG files to .JPEG

Update: posting this topic further illustrated that something weird is happening with how Instructables handles images. The image as shown above shows both left and right sides with the text blurry. If you click on the image, the left stays blurry (as it should because it was) whereas the text on the right shows clear and sharp. I give up on the root of the problem, but it's frustrating how the image quality gets messed up.I put "bug" in quotations since you never know if it's a bug, unintended side effect, technical limitation or external problem. I'll let Instructables be the judge. Regardless, I thought it might be worth bringing attention to since I'm probably not the only one to have experienced it.While I use RAW images converted to JPEGs in Lightroom for my main project images, which tend to look beautifully, I normally use Canva to design my title images. Mainly due to being able to add text, shapes or any other elements in layers. Canva exports by default in .PNG format, which is probably the most popular image format after .JPG due to its support of transparencies and lossless compression. For that reason it's normally preferred for header images and graphics. I tend to use a ratio of between 4:3 and 16:9 to make things easier for the file uploader, as well as a longest edge of 1024px since that looks like it's what Instructables wants so it won't be resized. Despite trying to make things easy for the uploader, my title images have always been the blurriest, noticeably more so than the rest of the images or the image uploaded. Today I finally did some tests and found out that on import of .PNG files, the uploader noticeably deteriorates the quality of the image when converting it to JPEG, even if it isn't resizing it. A picture is attached as evidence. It seems to particularly affect portions which are highly saturated or text, greatly desharpening it. It makes a good image look like it's been carelessly edited. For the image to maintain its quality, I have to take the original .PNG and convert to .JPEG on my own (Photoshop), and then upload the .JPEG to Instructables (instead of the .PNG). As a user, what I'd optimally like to see done is: Fix the importer to properly support .PNG images without deteriorating the images. It is way too popular a format to not accept. I do realize it might be a Canva color space or other such issue, but it probably wouldn't be limited to that program anyway. Nonetheless, if this isn't possible, I'd be happy for the system to simply not accept .PNG and to throw-out an error message telling me to convert the images on my own and only upload .JPG. That would at least avoid image quality being inadvertently affected. Make available an up to date FAQ page where all information regarding images is available: what formats are natively accepted, what is the optimal ratio for images, what is the optimal resolution for images, to what sizes an image is resized on import, or any other relevant technical image details. I've researched this multiple times in the past and there are a lot of people with the same questions in the forum. Especially when it comes to sizes and ratios (cut off images, etc). Most of the information is from years ago (ex. 2010) and cannot be trusted to be up to date. Up to now I've uploaded plenty of 18 megapixel images when it is unnecessary given that the largest size shown, I think, is "LARGE" size at 1024px (I believe). A place to educate ourselves objectively on this particular site's preferences would be appreciated.Anyway, thought I'd comment this since it was a relief to finally find out the origin of the problem.

How does a computer "write" something... to memory, a registry, etc...? Answered

I know that every computer has a CPU. I know that every CPU has it's own Instruction Set, or... set of things that it can do: CompareAddJump toInOutetc...I even know a fair amount about how a CPU interacts with RAM along the Data Bus and the Address Bus with Set wires etc, and how a CPU's ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) stores data temporarily in "registries" and uses "flags" to send things back to the Control Unit if the CPU. So, I know a fair amount about "How a computer works." But... it is all theoretical. I have memorized words and ideas like "ALU" and "Registry" and even RAM. But there is one thing that I do not understand and cannot seem to find anywhere on the internet. The verbs "write" and "store"...??? I know that a record cutter uses electrical current spread across metal plates with magnets that push a scoring tool into a soft "scratchable" medium to cut a long groove to make a record. Then a phonograph has a needle that that is likewise suspended between electrical currents with magnets that telegraph the grooves up a wire to replicate the sound through a horn (later a speaker). But as far as I know... RAM or a CPU's registries can have binary "words" somehow written to them for storage. I know it is happening at 3-4 billion times per second, but even if you slow it down to one time per minute... how does a CPU "write" 00110100 to RAM? There are no magnets in RAM like on a hard drive. RAM has no physical material that can be changed to represent a zero or a one... like... wax, or vinyl, or magnets. I don't even know who I can ask this to... so I'm asking here.

Looking for Help! 120v ac to control variable speed 90v DC motor Answered

I'm at best a novice when it come to electrical and circuits so if what I've put together is a total disaster maybe you can inform me on a better solution. I've taken a treadmill that was given to me and salvaged the motor control board along with the 90v DC motor the control screen on the treadmill was smashed so i didn't bother to keep it. After a few days of googling and YouTubeing I ordered a scr motor controller but it was only single phase 220v... we here in Canada run a double phase 120v.. so to the best of my ability I wired up the single phase with a rectifier also purchased online. As I would flip the switch the motor would come on full tilt at what I'm assuming would have been 160v DC..I decided to scrap that idea. So after more googling and youtubing I found a page where someone had cut parts out of an old circuit board and just used the main circuit that took ac power in and DC power out.. so I figured I'd give that a try... and of course that didn't work either hens why I'm here writing this now. so I thought to my self, well what if I take the main components like the transfomer (tested the transformer to 120v on primary and on the secondary i was reading 18v av onmy multimeter) to step my power down the bridge rectifier to convert to DC along with a capacitor to clean up the ripple and a potentiometer to control the voltage. I wired these items up roughly then pluged it into the wall and when I flipped the switch nothing caught on fire so I figured I'm off to a good start, but as I started to turn the dial on my pot nothing happened.. until it was turned to the very top that was. then the motor started to turn probably at about 14rmp now I plan on using this set up for a wood lather. Am I going about this like a total buffoon? any help would be greatly appreciated

Pin-pointer metal detector front end not working.

Hi,I breadboarded the pin-pointer metal detector and am having trouble with the front end. pcounterA reads 11-14 on the serial port monitor.See previous question on instructibles reproduced below:_________________Asked by jont4e 2 days ago Hi, I bread-boarded your circuit for just the end coils to start, and loaded the sketch. It seems to be pulsing the coil OK but the leds aren't responding nor the buzzer. I uncommented the serial port code and it shows ledthreshold1 always at .97, pcounterA at 12, and calav1 at 81. Is this OK? (The other reported variables are always 1000.) I wound the end coils with some bifilar wire I reclaimed from a microwave HV supply transformer. I assumed that was OK? Do you have a flow chart or description of how the code works so I can troubleshoot? Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated. Jon T 0 Answer from TechKiwi... 2 days ago The pcounterA value should be much higher 200 to 800 at least. My advice is to focus on one channel. Try reversing the polarity of one of the coils as this often is the problem as the pulseIn function needs to have a clean leading edge to trigger the timing process. Ensure your breadboard connections to the coil are short and well grounded. If this does not work direct message me with a link to some photos of your setup and I will try to assist. I'm just building a second unit so your timing is fortuitous as I can provide some test measurements._______________________________Attached are images of the front end scope traces and a shot of the breadboard. Coils are off screen to the left.Swapping coil polarity did not seem to change any waveforms.Hope someone has some suggestions I can try.JT

So pls suggest me parts with low cost and those which can be bought inside India. I also have a bunch of 3.7 V rechargeable batteries from powerbanks and rc helicopters. But dont have a way to recharge them or use it for a regulated supply
