Would 4x AA batteries, light up 9 LED's in Parallel?(With a resistor of course) The LED's are 3 volt. I am making an LED belt for my Friend. I wired it up and only the red LED's lit up for some reason.( The colors used are red, green, and 1 blue) is there a problem in amperage or is there a short or something?

Does any one know anything about belt fed guns. I have looked at one site called how stuff works but that gives me sort of an idea but i need something a lil more. does anyone have blueprints or plans for a belt fed gun. If you do that would make a great instructable. I know some of the basics of the belt fed guns, but not much more than that. I am wanting to make a 9mm belt fed LMG. Basicly from one of P.A. Lutys designs, only change them up a lil bit to use the belt feed.

Does anyone have some kide of blueprint on how to make a belt feed MP. I have seen the examples of ones on howstuffworks.com but that isn't helping me much right now. I'm not really sure how I can belt feed it through. I am working with a P.A. Luty's 9mm. Can some one help me on this. If you have been able to make a belt feed system can you show me yours in photos. I think that would also be a great instructable too. I'm not to sure how to make a belt for 9mm rounds either. Instead of sticking with his design on the magazine I think it would be great to have a belt feed system on this weapon.

I've read many answers on how to fix the belt which I did do that. But my problem is the screw must of been missing from the beginning and finally the belt came apart. So I need to know where I can get one of those small screws to repair the belt. Thank you.

I just joined Instructables, so hi everyone. How are you. Anyways, I had a most wonderful idea to share with you all. A flashlight that also functions as a belt buckle, and vice versa. Basically a headlamp light turned into a belt, or just attached to a belt. This was you can see where you're walking/running when you are being chased through a forest by zombies.

I have borrowed a belt sander from a friend to do a job........ and the sanding belt broke and stuck on the roller. I eventually managed to get it out. Tried the sander without the belt and one roller worked - the other didn't. I fitted a new belt (the right way round) but it didn't work. I've tried to remove the sanding belt, but it's sticking on the end of the roller that didn't work. Any ideas on what might be wrong please? It's looking at the moment as though I'm going to have to go out and buy a new one!! Any help would be gratefully received!

I'm new to the forum, so please be constructive with criticism if it's necessary. I'm looking for a way to carry around my tools (leatherman BLAST, cell phone (LG CU400), pencil, pen, BUNGEE notebook (maybe 5" x 3" or so)) in a comfortable, secure way. I hate using my pockets, and I'm a guy, so I don't carry a pocketbook or anything like that. I've been trying to figure out a way to secure said items on my body, but I find that everywhere I put them interferes with my motion, or makes too much noise as I'm prowling around behind friends :-P Does anyone have an idea for what I could do to solve this, is there an instructable already for something similar, etc.? Thanks in advance, and I hope this is the right place to post :)

I have designed a circuit the intent of which is to control the seat belt fastened light on the dash. There are two switches. 1. A pressure switch that closes when someone is in the seat. 2. A Reed switch that closes when the seat belt latch is latched. Each works correctly separately. I am using a standard 12V automotive relay to control the light, as below. Let's just look at one side. 1. When the ignition on the 12V wire connects to the two leads, i.e., the pressure switch and the reed switch. 2. When someone sits in the seat the pressure switch closes and the dash light, which is connected to the relay at 30 and 87A comes on (relay not activated). 3. When the seat belt is latched, the reed switch closes, the relay switches and the current between 30 and 87A turns off. Diodes are introduced in the circuit as shown in the diagram. The problem is that is does not work correctly. Sit in the seat and the light comes on. Buckle the latch but the light does not go off. There is still 12V between 87A and 30, but I don't know why. I also tried putting a diode between 85 and 86 (pointing towards 86) but that did not help. Suggestions please.

NEED EXTRA ANCOR FOR 2004 CHEVY SUBURBAN
I am interested in building a small vandergraph generator. I am thinking this will certainly be no taller then 2ft and likely closer to 1ft. I understand the general principal of how it works and this should be a good first voltage project that I should have everything I need for. What has been holding me back for quite some time is that I could not come up with a decent belt for the inside. But I read on the forums I think that leather is a good belt to use (or human skin). This seems very odd to me and maybe I am missing something but is this really a good thing to use as a belt? It would be nice because I could cut it as wide and long as I need and then sew it into a belt with some thread. I happen to have some leather laying around from some crafting I have been working on. Then as long as I am making this thread I was wondering what the best "tube" would be that the belt runs in. I had considered making a plexi glass tube with hot glue to hold it together. I think it could be cool to have a see through setup. But I want this to work as well as I can get it. So if a different material would work better I am open to suggestions. Also I will try my best to find my camera and post step by step photos once I know what the heck I am doing.

Apparently belt driven bikes were produced a few years ago by specialist bike companies but they are now about to hit the mainstream.These belts have an advantage over chains because they are tougher, last longer, aren't dirty or greasy, their quieter and they weigh a lot less.the only drawback is the price, Trek has unveiled, the District and the Soho, will run you $930 and $990, respectively. but then again all new tech is expensive :D Via Gizmodo

I want to make a modification to the classic Sam Browne belt/harness by adding a thigh bag to hold tools, water bottles, etc. I'm looking for a pattern to be made from heavy canvas or at least khaki denim. If anyone's been to an Army surplus store will probably get a pretty good idea of what I'm looking for. The bag has one large central pocket, two zippered pockets on the inside, and two outer pockets. It also has a large cover flap over the top with a leather or canvas tie-down straps.
Question by javajunkie1976
Hi folks, Essentially, I'm trying to make a heating pad and I'm becoming terrible confused. . . Let me start by offering some background on my project. I'm building a fermentation cabinet that will be cooled by a window A/C unit. The cabinet will be split into two halves. The first half, with the A/C unit, will be for lagering beer and cold conditioning. Temps will be around 40° F. The beer fermenting in the second half show be kept at about 60°-70° F. The 120mm PC fan will turn on and blow cold air into the second chamber when the temperature drops below a set point. I would like to have heating belts wrapped around the containers in the second chamber to bring the heat of the liquid up when it drops too low. This is where I'm getting very confused. I'm basically an idiot when it comes to electrical work. . . I would like to use about 7' of 30 AWG Teflon coated copper wire as my heating element. I've calculated the resistance of the wire at .722 ohms (this is the part where you ought to start speaking up and correcting me). Can anyone help me figure out what type of resistor I would need to drop the voltage down enough to get a 20W heating element? I'm starting with 120V from the wall. The sketch below is the cabinet design. Thanks, Chris
