Is it possible to make a silicon sock?

Hi, all! I wanna make a adhesive cover for my feet, so I think silicon is probably a good idea. Just wonder if it's possible to do so? If yes, how? (or maybe better material than silicon?) Thanks for all the reply!

What is the best way to cut a rubber (non-steel-belted) tire? Answered

I need a method of cutting a non-belted rubber tire (I'm attempting to sole shoes) that will (a) allow for an angular design, and (b), leave relatively clean edges. The best idea I've gotten was to use a hacksaw with water in the cuts for lubrication, but the results are too ragged and uneven. Any good ideas would be appreciated!

Will cutting off the tab from a pair of vibram fivefingers classic affect the shoe?

I have a pair of vibram fiefingers, classic style, as seen here. When I wear them, I get small blisters on the achilles tendon part of my foot. Would cutting off the two rubber things that jut fro the back of the shoe affect the shoes?

Fabric welding, no sew, hf/rf welding

Howdy folks, I've got a question that I hope someone might be able to help me with.  I'm interesting in creating a way to "weld" fabric together.  Basically taking two pieces of fabric, using heat, pressure and "glue" attach them together.  Think of Nike footwear and there sewless uppers. Anyone out there done anything like this DIY style?  I've got a number of projects that I could create from it. Thanks in advance, TOM

Help wanted in the UK: Dealing with SNOW

Hello there all, As you might be aware, us here in the UK are having a fair amount of snow, which as you might also be aware, causes our country to slowly collapse... Since those of you who live in Canada and northern states of the USA are quite a bit more used to the snow, I wondered if the collective genius of Instructables could give us some tips on dealing with snow... Things which'd be interesting to know about: -Footwear -Driving -Clothing -Shovelling I think you get the picture. Cheers!

How much and how efficiently can a capacitor store charge?

I recently found out all the items required to build this project: https://www.instructables.com/id/Electricity-Generating-Footwear/ .  I don't want to buy the power bank, so I though about using rechargeable batteries. But I had none, but I had capacitors and I thought of using them.  These capacitors 1000 uf . I am thinking about soldering 5 of them in paralell so that I have 5000 uf storage capacity, But I am concerned how well it would work, if at all.   Can this store upto the amount of charge that a powerbank can? Can it actually charge up at a constant voltage if I use it?  Thanks for helping!

Switch To Battery Power When Mains Power Is Lost ?

Go-to-War Gear--such catchy hypothetical stuff writes well, but it can turn real all too fast. I have acquaintances in Houston who had less than an hour to leave their homes before the floodwaters overtook them. They had just enough time to throw their important papers into the dishwasher (a handy dry spot for important stuff in a flood), grab their kids, and head for high ground. The recent CaliforniaThe Hunting Shack offers both .45 Colt and .45 Schofield loads (left). Ramshorn gripped STI Texican and Texas Longhorn Arms No. 5 were used for testing both the .45 Colt and the shorter .45 Schofield ammunition. wildfires typically covered 100 meters in 3 seconds. Do you really have what you need to grab and go? Even in America, you can go from full stop to life-threatening crisis in moments.A Proper Foundation: You can measure a man by his boots. I burned through several sets during my time in uniform. My favorite pair of combat boots is more comfortable than house slippers. Combat-proven features make them rugged. Speed laces keep them fast.I wear boots every time I fly. The speed laces let me get into and out of them easily for the obligatory TSA assessment. Keeping the best insoles for standing all day maintained and the drainage vents clear ensure they're comfortable.Air travel is not as much fun as it was once, but an airplane cabin is comfortable enough. Now imagine that same space upside down, dark, and populated with jagged metal, screaming hysterical passengers, fire, and worse. Never remove your footwear in an airplane.Whether the threat is a wildfire, hurricane, tornado, or civil unrest, you will always need proper footwear. Keep your favorite pair of broken-in boots right next to your bugout bag. Think it through and have something similar for each member of your family. Anything built on a faulty foundation can ultimately fail. If you have to move in a hurry that foundation is a good pair of boots.A Proper Bag: A Bugout Bag is pretty stupid without a decent bag. I have a nice utility pack I picked up at our local Walmart for next to nothing. It is lightweight and serviceable enough. However, mygo-to-warbag is a Brazos concealed carry pack from Flying Circle Gear. It's the best I've ever seen.For starters, everything about the Brazos bag is just a little bit heavier than everybody else's. The stitching is more rugged, the material is more substantial, and the zippers are of the big beefy sort. Additionally, the bag is exceptionally well imagined.There are two spacious center compartments large enough to manage a laptop. A small top pocket packs your wallet and incidentals and includes a hidden ID card holder. There is an integral hydration pouch along with four zippered pouches on the sides and a larger version on the front.The outside of the bag is festooned with MOLLE webbing. Thread a pair of ammo pouches in place for your shades or spare reading glasses. They can even carry ammo in a pinch. I can and have lived out of mine for extended periods while travelling, camping, or hiking.The handiest feature on my Brazos bag is the hidden "pass-through" pocket on the back. This discreet compartment is zipper-accessible from either side and is the perfect size to manage a decent gun. Open both sides and you can slide the pack over the handle of a rolling suitcase. Drop in a soft body armor panel and wear the pack backwards and you have an improvised tactical vest.
