Make a book with A4 old lined papers from notebooks

I want to make all these loose A4 lined papers that I have collected from notebooks into a book. I have looked at some instructables for binding books but am not sure what is the best way bind in this case. The pages have been either ripped from the side of the notebook or whole signatures have been pulled out. I am leaning towards just stapling them all together with a thick coloured paper cover. Your input on this would be appreciated. Thank you.

Booklet printing & the printer

Hi, I want to print a 200 pg book I have in booklet form. What I mean is that on each A4 sheet, there should be 4 pages printed front and back. I should be able to fold the sheets in half afterwards and get a book that is half the size of the A4 sheet. I have tried to do this with the printer settings but when I came out, it wasn't in correct order. Also one side of the sheet is in one direction and the other side is in another so it looks like half the sheet was printed upside down. Before I waste more paper, what may be the problem? The only thing I may have done wrong is to specify "long edge" instead of "short edge" for two sided printing. This was done on a HP 8100 laser printer. Thanks

The broschure itself is A4, so actually the holder should be a bit bigger. I have the idea of just bending one side of the wire mesh. But do you have an idea, how you would do that? Thanks for helping! cheers :) anyone?

Would it be possible to "expand" a regular household printer?

Basically, what i'm talking about is taking apart a normal A4 printer and expading the paper feed and guide rails so it can accomodate paper of any size. The purely mechanical aspect certainly seems doable, although you'd run out of ink a lot faster, and I have no idea how to tackle the software issues. It seems theoretically possible, but i'm not sure about how you'd actually go about it - tips/help and any links would be appreciated.

illustrator to large dgx file question? Answered

Hello. I'm in a bit of a hurry as there is a competition I want to enter by Friday but I just need to know before doing so if this is possible in theory. ( I only have to enter the image on Friday not the the object) My final aim is to have an intricate image laser cut into  metal sheet  (5' x 7'.) at a metal fabricator's. I have imported an A4 sized single colour tif. file into Illustrator and have converted it to a vector using Livetrace; it is now an ai. file. This as far as I have got  . But the question is ;  I plan to use one of the available convertors to change this ai. file to a dgx. file. Do I simply then take that to a fabricator and then that's it ? Have I missed out a hundred steps and complications ? Or is there a better way ? Or is it not possible to scale up  an image this way? It's obvious that I don't know what I'm doing so any advice will be appreciated. Thanks FOH

Lightbox options

Hi everyone, I need your opinions please, I want to create a light box and I have two options; Use an old A4 scanner and place these leds (http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/00119419) and place them behind the glass where the scanner part would of been, place some film over the glass to help with the light and job done. Which would be better as well, put the lights ont he bottle or try and get them as close to the glass as possible. Or, I can use an old monitor (nearly A3 size which would be better) with a knackered power unit so I will need to use the same leds by either placing them along the sides of the thick acrylic/glass sheet inside the montior (which would need cutting the metal and plastic  frames a lot to get it to work or make a new wooden one to fit inside the monitor external case . Or cut holes in the back of the metal exterior frame and have the leds really close to the sheet. However on the understand of the sheet is covered in lots of little white dots which might stop the light. Any suggestiong or opinions please?

As with many projects, i have a few problems that you may help me with: Is 10mm(w)x1000mm(L) made out of cut and spliced A4 paper good enough for that purpose? Do i still need to punch the holes in the center? (the guide holes thingy) Will a regular needle be thick enough or do i need to get something thicker? (I'm gonna punch it manually, so a needle would be easy to handle) What kind of switch can i use to "read" the data electronically?

diy car radio / bluetooth / usb

Hi guys, I was hoping for some guidance. I have an 1995 audi a4 and the 1 din cd/radio player  you see is kind of outdated. I was looking for a replacement unit that is simple, clean looking and has Bluetooth / USB connectivity. Didn't find any and in case I did find something it looked ugly or had bulky buttons or tasteless lights glowing all over the place. So I thought maybe a raspberry pi could replace the current unit but this brings up a whole s*itload of  problems. 1. Is there a way to power the pi with the power cable that powers the current unit? Are there any converter cables? 2. Currently as you can see there are 4 rca cables in use. 2 front and 2 for the back. The latter go trough an amp in the trunk. I stumbled into a small board with two rca ports for the pi. Can I use a splitter and plug in all 4 cables to that? As you can tell already by now, electricity, current, amps and all that is not my slice of pie :P 3. If we could sort these out as a first step we could move onto adding a power on / off sort of thing so the pi doesn't  drain the car's battery when not in use? Maybe add a touchscreen later on. Print a case for it and hack it into the car's console somehow, but these later ones I could sort out on my own. The foundation tho'  would be the first 3 questions. Thank you in advance for your feedback. Much obliged and much appreciated! Cheers!

Scarf of Hope to remember Peru's missing

This story is lifted wholesale from the BBC. There is something warmly familiar and comforting about the quiet chatter of women and the clickety-clack of knitting needles. Standing or sitting huddled together in small groups, the knitters dressed in traditional Andean hats, big "pollera" skirts and draped with a "manta" or shawl, form a multi-coloured feast for the eyes. But they have more in common than crochet. These women are some of thousands in Peru who lost husbands, brothers and sons in the country's bitter internal conflict between the Mao-inspired rebels of the Shining Path rebels and state forces in the 1980s and 90s. Each one is knitting a message or epitaph to their loved one the size of an A4 sheet of page which will form part of an enormous scarf which, it is hoped, will reach a kilometre in length. It is being called the Scarf of Hope and it aims to be more than just a symbol of Peru's estimated 15,000 "disappeared" but a physical reminder that in the majority of cases their relatives live on without ever knowing how they died nor where to find their remains. "It's like a piece of memory," says Marina Garcia Burgos, a Lima-based photographer who was inspired to initiate the project with two colleagues while working in Ayacucho. "Each woman chooses the colour and the knit of her panel. As well as embroidering the loved one's name, some also sew on a piece of their clothing or a photograph." But its significance goes beyond that. In the remoter corners of the Andes, textiles have been the clues used to identify exhumed human remains where ID documents are a rarity. For the women fortunate enough to have positively identified and laid to rest the body of an exhumed loved one, in so many cases it was by recognising the colour and feeling the knit or weave of the fabric wrapped around the remains. More often than not - as was the case in Peru's biggest mass grave exhumation and human remains restitution in Putis, Ayacucho - they themselves remember knitting the jumper or turning up the trousers worn by the victim.

Help with a game system mod?

I'm buying a sega game gear to mod. I want to add an a/v input without using the tv tuner accessory. Is this possible? I cant find it anywhere online, but i did find a pinout and it seems possible.

Leather Spine on Plastic Coated Binding? Answered

Hi All. My name is Craig and I've been binding books for a while and come up with a problem today. I hade some pages ring-bound (You know, where they punch the paper with those square holes and hold them together with the plastic ring strip.) Anyways, there were too many pages, making the binding weak and so I decided to bind them. I've done this before by simply sowing together through all the bindng holes and then creating and attaching a cover like with a standard book. However, this time I was (1) lazy and didn't feel like going through all the effort to make a proper binding cover, (2) there was already a perfectly good front and back cover page which I wanted to keep anyway, and (3) I liked the look of the current binding (it has a clear plastic sheet ove the back page and front page) and want to keep the same look. Okay, now my problem is that when sowing together the pages I kept the plastic sheets over the front and back pages to maintain that gloss look. (It's those plastic A4 sheets that they normally place on the front page when plastic-ring binding - though I had one placed over the back too.) The pages are bound perfectly fine and sturdy but the sowing looks unsightly. I cut a piece of leather to place over the spine and overlapping onto the front and back page edges by about 1cm. The leather is very thin and has thin fabric-like mesh on the back lining it. I have no idea what to do to hold them together. At the moment I scrapped the plastic a bit with a needle to create a slightly rough surface to try help with the glue and am holding the bond down with a heavy weight. Though I highly doubt this will hold even if I let it dry. If this doesn't work I thought of maybe trying to use a hot glue gun and putting glue on the leather and then trying the same weight method again. I'm a little weary of using hot glue though as I don't want to ruin the pages as they were expensive to print and took so much time to print and bind. Does anyone have any ideas what I could try? P.S. Apologies that there are no pictures to show what I'm working with.

Can i advertise the fact i sell cheap thermochromic pigment, on instructables somehow? Answered

Ok, i sell thermochromic pigment on ebay under the name "oldmanbeefjerky", ive noticed however many of the projects i see online arent using my pigment, which is disturbing because it means they got the pigment from paintwithpearls, who sells theirs for twice as much as me. theres no difference in quality, its all leuco dye thermochromics, i compared ours. Anyway, its my beleif that people are not quite informed about thermochromic pigments, period. I sell on ebay so a google search wont bring my stuff up, opposed to paintwithpearl, and from this i beleive people will think they are forced to pay $50 for a 25g bag of pigment which will probably only coat an a4 page or 2, depending on what medium you use. What i want to do, is advertise the fact i sell thermochromic pigment for a fraction of the cost, which is less than half the active market value and what i sell is of standard quality, aka, its neither better nor worser than any other pigment within $1000 of the price. Can i do this? such as posting links to my ebay store or web store which show everything i have for sale, including the pigment? While i wont aregue it may bring in more business, personally i want to see more people using this product, not much is known about it yet, and you dont see it that often in use beyond the roarschach moving ink blotch mask. So, am i allowed to post my links where appropriate, e,g "where do you get thermochromic pigment or stuff like that" me: "click this link i have some for sale here www.example.com" im soon going to put together a decent instructable partly for my customers to use, in how to mix and use thermochromic pigment and ide like to post the product source links on the page. given im also the seller is there an issue with this? I dont want to advertise my products and i wont spam, i merely want to advertise the AVAILABILITY of the pigment, to those who didnt know it was available for a decent price, or that it even existed at all so is this ok? if not what would be and how should i go about it?

Paper Airplane Contest 7 (Closed)

To spur more paper airplane posts, I have decided to host a seventh paper airplane contest, (PAC7). Hopefully this contest will encourage more people to submit their innovative paper airplanes for all to see. For this contest, the specifications are for an advanced stunt plane. Requirements: 1. Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to perform a loop, wingover and/or a half Cuban eight • A ground range of at least 25 feet (7.62 meters) and an air range of at least 30 feet (9.144 meters) • Durability to fly at least 20 flights • Use of less than 10 inches (0.254 meters) of tape in construction • Use of less than 3 pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper in construction • Aircraft must be named 2. Instructable Requirements: • 1 page (not the intro page) strictly devoted to materials required in construction • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft • The instructable's license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)" • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: “This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 7 (https://www.instructables.com/community/Paper-Airplane-Contest-7/).” Prizes: For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 5 performing paper airplanes* one patch each. Each patch will feature its respective aircraft, rather than medals. The first place winner will also receive a 3 month Instructables.com Pro membership if his/her plane meets or exceeds all specifications. *Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of patches wide however, each entrant can only win one patch. How to Enter: To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My PAC7 Paper Airplane [Your Member Name Here]” with your instructable's URL included. I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Entries". Judging: I have decided that I will judge all the planes myself based on abilities. I have decided this way because I believe judging on performance and suitability, rather than shape, is a more objective approach. The contest begins Friday, July 29, 2011 and ends Friday, September 2, 2011. Entries must be published before Friday, September 2, 2011. From September 2 to September 5, I will be judging all entries. I will announce the winners of the contest on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 and issue them their prizes Wednesday, September 7, 2011.

To keep the distribution of patches wide however, each entrant can only win one prize. How To Enter: To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My Paper Airplane [Member Name Here]” with your instructable's URL included. I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Current Entries". Judging: For this contest, I have decided that I will judge all the planes myself based on abilities. I have decided this way because I believe judging on performance rather than shape is a more objective approach. The contest begins Friday, January 14, 2011 and ends Monday, February 14, 2011. Entries must be published before Friday, February 11, 2011. From February 11 to February 14, I will be judging all entries. I will announce the winners of the contest on Tuesday, February 15, 2011 and issue them their prizes Wednesday, February 16, 2011. Current Entries:
