Milkshake Bars

My dad keeps telling me about these candy bars that used to be made called Milkshake Bars.http://www.candywrappermuseum.com/milkshake.htmlI've never had them before, but they are apparently not made anymore.Basically, I was wondering if anyone would know how to make one. If so, could you list it as an instructable so that I might make one for my Dad. I think he'd really love to have one.Thanks.

Moving orange bar

When viewing pages in "How to make Instructables," the lower orange bar will intermittantly move to cover the "previous to next" area of the page when changing to another page. You must then refresh the page to move it and be able to select another page of instructables. Very annoying. Also the preview bar wouldn't work the first time I tried it.

Bike/bar details?

Does anyone have plans or drawings for a bike/bar (pic below)? My friend and I helped load one of these onto a trailer the other day and I have been wanting one ever since. It has a bar in the middle and 10-16 seats (depending on the model) lining the sides where people sit and pedal and drink. The one we saw had a steering wheel in the middle for the bartender. I have not researched the legality of such a vehicle in my area. I have not been able to find anything online thus far. My friends and I are proficient at machining and welding, I would just need some general dimensions and plans to get started. Can anyone help me out?

Multiple LED Bar Scoreboard

Hi everyone, Me and a friend of mine would to make a scoreboard which can display the score of around 70 different people. The way we would like to do this is by making 70 individual led strips which represents a person. Each strip has to contain about 100 leds (so the maximum score is 100). We would like to be able to set each persons score individually from anywhere between 0-100. Preferably with as little knobs as possible.  What do you guys think is the easiest and cheapest way of doing this?  We were thinking about a system with a arduino or some kind of controller and a chain of LED Bar Graphs as shown in the link below. http://i01.i.aliimg.com/photo/v57/241783705/LED_bar_graph_display.jpg We are not that experienced with electrical components so we would like to have some help with that!   Looking forward to hear some of your ideas!

Soldering Copper Round Bar

I plan on making a backdrop (pictured) out of copper. I have a little bit of experience soldering copper pipe. I have an idea of how to build the backdrop but would appreciate some feedback/tips.Dimensions:- 5' W x 7' H x 3' DMaterials: - Diagonal members: 0.1875" round bar- Circular votive holders: 0.125" round bar- Rectangular border, kickers, and base: 1/4" x 1" rectangular barI'm thinking that I will solder the diagonal members at each intersection and where the ends meet the rectangular bar frame. The base will be a 3' rectangular bar on the left and on the right. There will be a kicker on each side, connected to the base and about halfway up the vertical members of the frame.Does this seem feasible? Will the structure be stable? How can I form the circular votive holders?

bar fridge and footstool in one?

My husband really really wants a footstool for his potato couching comfort. He has also always joked about wanting a bar fridge in the lounge for keeping his beer in close proximity to the TV. (he's a lovely but lazy lazy man). I am NOT the 'handy' type, but I do know one end of a screwdriver from the other (just). My first thought was just to tip a bar fridge on it's back and cover it with fabric so that iyou would lift the 'top' to get to the fridge part, but the 'what-cha-ma-callit' at the back of the fridge (the coil looking bit) would be on the ground.. now I am a natural blonde but even I know this is not a good idea! If anyone has ANY ideas on how to go about combining the 2 I would be very very grateful, and my husband would have the best christmas present ever! I am especially looking for any ideas using the KISS principal. thanks!

Horizontal scroll bar issue

When arriving at a page such as https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-technology/ There's a horizontal scrollbar. To remove it, find this rule div#omni in your CSS files. Either: - Remove: border: 1px solid rgba(119,130,135,.4) - Add: box-sizing: border-box; Either one should fix your problem.

The search bar does not work!

From the explore page (https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/) I tried to use the search bubble at the top right. I typed USB charger for example, and it takes me to a search page (https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/?sort=none&q;=usb+charger) but that page only has a grey bar with the words "Let's make 'USB charger' with an option to choose different categories, e.g. everything, technology, etc... That page doesn't show any search results. It appears to be the main search page, because it has a little magnifying glass button after the text, but when I click it, it just returns me back to the "Explore" page cited above. I can't figure out how to search the site.  Also I tried to attach a screenshot but neither the new uploader nor the "old" uploader are responding to my clicks.

Cost isnt that big of a deal just dont want to drop $300 on a pre fabbed one if I can make one for much less. A list would be nice, primarily LED's to use, battery, heat sink issues. Again I would like to build one that is really bright right in front and carries for a good distance. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello. I need something like this: http://trapezerigging.com/PortablePullupBar/?gclid=CO_b9dCf6aMCFZL92AodJFCP2w That is, a free standing chin up bar that can be quickly mounted and dismounted.

Looking for input on a TARDIS console bar

My boyfriend and I want to have a Who-themed room party at a sci-fi/linux convention in our area.  We've bounced around the idea of having a TARDIS console bar set up in a corner of the room, so I'd really appreciate ideas for the console that could easily be set up and broken down, as this is  going in a room we only have for a weekend. Ideas for random gadgets and doo-hickeys, places to have alcohol and the like would be greatly appreciated as well.  So far we know we want to have a quarter or half keg in the center of the console, located behind us. Leaning towards 10th's design, but might be willing to go for the 11th's more steam punk look. Also, decorating tips for the room as a whole would be good.  So for we want to make roundels out of foam and stick them to the wall with tack to imitate the 10ths 'desktop theme' and to print a door sized TARDIS door to tack to the door to the hotel room. The idea behind the party is that the hotel room and the TARDIS have merged, ala Time Crash.

How to fix Bar Clamps that Slip?

My grandparents are moving, and are organizing stuff... I just found an antique bar clamp (An ELZETT, a bit smaller than that one though). The sliding arm/jaw wouldn't slide on the bar, so I removed the rust. The sliding jaw wouldn't lock onto the bar when I tightened it. I tried enlarging the grooves/notches that were on the bar with a hacksaw, but that didn't really help.  Does anyone have an idea for making it lock/catch on the bar? My grandpa might have several more of these clamps! Drilling holes into the bar and adding a removable pin - no, because this steel is really hard and I'd go through 10 drill bits. The only thing I can think of is to take it apart, and use the hardware for a homemade wooden clamp. But I think it would be easier to start from scratch... I really want to fix this clamp! The quality of old tools, throat depth of this clamp, the screw, the swiveling pad - I need these! Thanks!

Countdown timer led bar... Possible or not ?

Hello, So it's my first post here :-) Hope tu fins answers ! I would like to create a visual countdown, created by a led bar (let's say 100 leds aligned) that would switch off regulary the leds when the time is going on... My idea is to propose a visual bechmark to people that do not know to read the time (childrens, deficient persons etc...). For example, it's always quite hard to make the childrens know how long they have to stey on bed until the night is finished. This kind of countdown could be understandable by everyone to know if the night is in the middle or next to finish. Ideally, this coutdown could be associated to one clock and could take the "start time" and the "end time" and calculate the time beetween that, then switch off regulary each one of the lights, going from 100 lights on starting time to 0 at end time.  Any idea about this ?

Convert DC Light bar to AC

I'm trying to help out a friend. He's an animation student and he frequently has to use a light box while he's sketching. For those unfamiliar, he draws on a paper, and then puts another paper on top and traces it again, but with a slight change from the first. This process continues over and over until the animation is complete. In order to be able to trace, he's got a piece of white plexi (with a 90° bend in it) as his "table". He then places an off the shelf Energizer "Under Cabinet Light" under the plexi. This light has a fluorescent bulb and is powered by 8 AA batteries. Simple calculations means it's running on a 12V battery pack. Since he's often doing homework for 6 hours straight, the 8AA batteries become costly and the light dims over time. He was asking if I could hack the light to take AC power instead. I have an old wallward ac adapter that has these specs: Input: 120VAC 60Hz 30W Output: 12V @ 1.2A. I also took pictures of the circuit board I found inside the light. While I can't distinguish exactly what's on the board, I can pick out a capacitor, a transformer and some sort of regulator. I should've  got a quick schematic... from the looks my google searching, it's a simple fluorescent lamp circuit. Would it be as simple as stripping the ends of the AC adapter and soldering it to the positive and negative contacts on the light bar's circuit board? The adapter itself takes AC and makes it DC so it should work right? Another thing he is thinking of is having me swap out the tube for LED's. I'll just need an LED driver and I can use the same power supply I found in my junk box... it's just a question if the high powered LEDs would be bright enough. Surely if the tube is bright enough on fresh AA batteries, 3 high powered white LEDs would be brighter right? Also he's on a budget, so the AC/DC hack would essentially free for him!
