Zapping bricks

I zapped a common red brick with a very powerful beam of light. Here is a picture where you can see the area that was melted. The melted area was actually so hot, it was bubbling! I’m wondering if I should make an Instructable... or is this just too dangerous. OMG anyone?? ~Bob~

Brick floor?

I'm Yeti-gone-awry! I want to rebuild my shop and to put in a new floor or have one poured would cost about $1300.00 of which I'm a little short of. I was in Colonial Williamsburg last week and in the Blacksmith shop I noticed they had a brick floor. The bricks were laid close together. I have bricks, a lot of bricks. I could lay down a layer of gravel then a layer of sand and then put the bricks in, but should I lay them next to each other w/o spaces between them or lay them a 1/2 inch apart on all sides and sweep in mortar mix between them and wet them down? I know that if I bring in a milling machine I'll have to pour a thick pad for it. Thank you. Chuck

RCX Brick Conundrum

Hi, I want to post a lego hot chocolate stirrer, which is easy to clean and works well. I need to know, however, if you mind not knowing the rcx program code. I can not find the program transmitter, so I do not know the program code. I am sure it is fairly simple, as it is only a touch sensor that is used as a button to rotate the motor. I am using the code that is already on the brick and I really want to post it. I had already made most of the video before noticing this snag. Please tell me what you think and I would be extremely grateful if you did not post this idea before me. Thanks and Happy New Year!

Help Me with my BRICK !!

Our brick home was built in the 60's. Over the years the faces of the brick kept popping off. I was told it was do to water getting behind them and freezing. Well now we are ready to have all 200 brick removed and new ones put in. We found out the manufacture of this type of brick no longer makes them. So I thought maybe we could fined a brick that has the same texture and then paint the whole house. We have been looking and haven't found any. I call some contractors but everybody's either to busy or they will get back with me. Does anyone have any advise ? How should I talk to a contractor to get them on the job ?

So I've got this brick...

Sometime last year I received a brick that is very special to me. It came from the outside of the old technology wing of my school when they were knocking it down to make way for the new building, and I have a lot of great memories from those rooms. The only problem is...well...it's a big red brick. Its only current function is as a doorstop to my bedroom which I stub my toe on each time I enter. I'm growing sick and tired of it but I don't want to get rid of it either. I figured I might do something crafty with it instead, but unfortunately other than the creative application of paint and glue to make it a less-than-charming piece I can put on my shelf, I'm drawing a blank. Does anyone have any ideas?

Is charcoal powder better than bricks?

What would happen, if you put charcoal powder instead of bricks in your bbq, Would it push up the heat, or is it just unefficient? Cuz it's really messy, I thought it would be easier to ask someone with experience. I have put it under camping channel, and if it is more efficant than bricks, I guess It could go under the survival channel.

I want to make hard sugarfree liquorice bricks, what type of natural binder should I use? Thanks!

For my next artistic project I would like to build edible bricks in different shapes. Whereas I don't have a problem realising molds in differeny shapes and sizes, I don't kn ow where to start in order to have bricks that are hard enough, non sticky, possibly with a good fragrance/smell and that come with natural ingredients (not too many bad chemical things). Also, I was thinking about liquorice, but they can also be made out of beetroot, cocoa, fruit juice etc. They should last a good deal of days and possibly be eaten, although hard.

Freestanding LEGO Brick Tower Build Challenge

Not sure where this would fit - so square pegs it is!I'm interested in starting up a competition to build the tallest freestanding LEGO brick structure and I think Instructables could be a great place to play it out. As you've all probably seen, recently students in Vienna built the tallest LEGO tower at an amazing 29.48m. Photo at SF GateThe catch with that tower however, as pointed out by many in the blogosphere, is that it is 'supported' by wires, which keep it from falling in the wind. While they may just be a safety feature and not part of the structure, I agree with many who have said this is not really a freestranding structure - for that it would be LEGO brick and nothing else.So now, the challenge: Post an instructable showing how you built your tallest LEGO brick freestanding structure. This way, in the spirit of the DIY community, the next person can build off your design and improve it to create a bigger tower. Instructables should clearly show your method of construction, however there is no need for a brick by brick play. If you use a special technique to build the major components of your tower - such as a feature that allowed you to reach your desired height - highlight that for sure. For a baseline, I've found it very difficult to find any postings online of the tallest LEGO freestanding structure out there. Most publicity has been on these mega towers supported by tension cables. I was however to find one student's project here which topped out at a very modest 11 feet. 11ft TowerI hope to post my own attempt to beat this tower shortly - however if you've got the bricks - start building!! Then please link your instructable here.If you have any verified information on previous FREESTANDING builds out there, please post them too!Thanks!Daniel

What to do with a bricked all-in-one pc?

I have a bricked Dell Studio 19 All-In-One PC, and wanted to know if I could use it for something. It was bricked by a failed BIOS update. There was a program from dell which came installed and updated any other of their software and drivers on the computer. Only after the failed update I found out that updating the BIOS is really unnecessary. The only fix I know for the motherboard is replacing it, and the only place I found out that refurbishes them are from a company in the US, and it's not cheap at all. (I used to live in the US, and moved to Brazil later) Well anyway, I wanted to know if I can use the computer for something else, like use the monitor for a different computer and use its bluetooth mouse and keyboard on a different computer too. I think the only thing really useful in it is the processor which is already old (Intel E7500 and a 320GB HDD). http://www.dell.com/us/dfh/p/studio-one-19/pd http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/studio-one-19/diagnose Thanks for the help!

What to do with a 20 MB 10LBS brick

Hey guys. I was treasure hunting at the Recycle Reuse the other day and I found something interesting. It's a 20MB external harddrive that weighs ~10LBS. It's ridiculous, and it's formatted to be used with a //portable computer//! Crazy, you'll need a backpack for this thing. Anyway, I bought it (2$) to take apart and see why so much space was needed. It probably works, seeing as how it is still in its original wrapping. But does anyone have any ideas about what to do with this thing before I destroy it? Maybe it's more valuable intact, maybe you know what parts are neat in it. What should I do with this monster? -BG

Making a proper fire brick or refractory liner

If you are cheap like me then paying an arm and a leg for commercial grade refractory mixes or ready made bricks is no option.And how wants to make their design only to find there is no matching bricks for it...There is lots of totorials online and here on Instructables that deal with making heat resistent bricks and similar.And this is all well and good for normal melting applications or your pizza oven, not so much if you really need intense heat.I found that commercail mixes tend to be either really brittle once heated up or that they will glace up and even melt.So why not make my own mix...Ingredients:Fine sandCrushed PerliteVermiculiteSodium SilicateThe first three you find in basically every home depot or garden center.The last can be made from crystal cat litter and sodium hydroxide.Use proper PPE please!For a refractory mix I use:100ml of clean water.60g of crystal cat litter.About 35-40g of Sodium Hydroxide.This will provide a very silica rich solution.Use a high jar or similar and fill the water in.If you have use a magnetic stirrer, otherwise be prepared for manual labour.Add some cat litter but not so much that stirring becomes a problem.It will fizz around a bit and when it stops slowly add some sodium hydroxide.The mix will heat up and the cat litter starts to dissolve, once it is gone add some more.If it becomes hard to dissolve them add a bit more sodium hydroide but avoid letting it get too hot and so it boils!!A bit of steam is fine though.Towards the end you should have a quite hot mix with all cat litter inside and a bit of sodium hydroxide left.See what dissolves and only add as much as you really need.40g is enough, if it won't dissolve the cat litter then keep stirring every now and then and add some external heat, like placing it in a water bath on your stove.Once all is dissolved the mix is ready and should keep the jar closed to prevent it turning it a rock hard cement...Make sure your dry ingredients are well mixed and relatively fine in particle size.DO A TEST WITH JUST WATER!Take a defined amount of your mix, like 100g and see how LITTLE water in ml is required to turn in into a plyable mass like green sand.Note down this relation to get the right mix with the waterglass.To keep the mix workable you want to add the same amount of clean water to the amount of waterglass you calculated.If it is quite cold day you can leave it undiluted but give it a test on how long it takes to set on the surface to get your working time.Make sure you really mix it all properly to enuse the waterglass wets the surface of all aggregates in the mix.Press into your prefered form, remove form and let air dry, preferably on some wooden sticks so they won't accidentally fuse with the surface you have put them on.Once you have enough to fill your kitchen oven put them in at a heat of about 80-90°C for 3 to 4 hours.Open the door every now and then to let the moisture escape.After that they can be fired up to become fully fire resistent.Do this slowly as there might still moisture be trapped inside that needs to steam off, not boil off as it might crack the bricks.Once they got a good glacing from being used they might fuse together but should not constantly crack and melt like some commercial products - plus it come dirt cheap in comparison.

Faux corner fireplace surround with landscape bricks?

Any thoughts on creating a corner surround for one of those electric or gel pack, *ventless* fireplace inserts...using landscape brick? I was thinking: create frame for insert with 2x4s (I have a ton of them laying around) ...I have a nice, *natural*, hunk of wood for the top already but I was trying to come up with something SUPER easy for making the front look nice: landscape block? I see many nice looking structures built of just stacked up landscape blocks and what? are they GLUED together? Just stacked up with like a row on the bottom/front for a hearth? I am sure doing it in the middle of a wall instead of having to cut blocks for a corner would be easier but the way my windows are, the only place I can do it is in a corner as I am putting the TV on it and we have cut block in the past so we can do that part of it :)  I tried to find some examples on the internet and here at Instructables and haven't seen anyone try this yet.... Any thoughts anyone?

How do I "unbrick" the Electronic Brick shield? Answered

I'm trying to connect external sensors (in the picture below - 2 tilt switches), to an Electronic brick shield like this (see picture): I extend 2 buckled plugs from the shield with male-to-male headers. As far as I can understand from their cookbook - white supplies gnd, red gives +5v, and black is the signal - so I take the gnd and +5v from *one* of these cables and connect them to the breadboard's -/+ busses. Black goes to the switch (and to gnd via a pul-up resistor). The second switch takes +5v from its plug's red line (could also take it from the bus - but it looks neater this way), The other side of the switch goes to the black line (yellow jumper). This setup simply turns off the Arduino (short-circuit?). Pulling out the buckled plugs turns it on again. This tilt switch setup is pretty simple (I've tested it without the Electronic brick shield - sending the inputs from them to LEDs - and it works fine). I've also tried "unbricking" the LCD brick itself (That's what I'm really after) by sticking jumpers into the holes in the bus cable (according to what I've gathered from the Electronic Brick cookbook), and I couldn't get it to show anything or turn on the backlight. Is there some voodoo I'm missing here? Thanks.

Lego Chess Set - motorised, $32k, 100k bricks

Using 32 Lego mindstorms bricks, 100,000 Lego bricks (though adding up the stats from their site it's 97,015) and costing roughly $30,000 this Lego chess set that will be on display at Brickworld next week is truly amazing. Check out the detail on the pieces, I love how the knight's legs move as it travels the board. Though I was really confused until I realised they HAD to move the pawn out the way before the knight could move. The whole lot took a year to plan and build, led by 4 main people and helped by 23. Their site has more stats on how it was done and what it involved. [via Make]

How can I repair water damaged exterior bricks?

Solid brick home has suffered severe winter with water damage causing some bad flaking and literal breakage of bricks in two places. Shallow damage in area of about 3' x 3' on outside of chimney; deeper, more severe damage affecting maybe six bricks in one corner near the ground where large chunks have cracked off. The house is painted brick, built in 1937 with a layer of brick outside, a layer of concrete, and then another layer of brick inside, so the exterior walls are brick clear through to the interior. There is some water leakage into the basement from the corner damage.
