I'm thinking of building my own Pig Roaster / BBQ, the problem is I want it to be 60" long and I have not found a propane BBQ burner that is long enough. Can you make it out of Black Gas Pipe? If so what diameter should the burner holes be? Regards, Dennis

Is this a good design for a a foundry burner? The hose hose for the natural gas are connected with jb weld. The thing on the back is a way to connect my output of my shopvac to the burner. The pipe attached to the other pipe is for the oil hose to be connected to. The front is tapered inward for a venturi effect. Its welded to the other pipe and I think I might put some jb weld over it to air proof it. I need to grind down the front of the oil pipe to make it flat with the outside pipe.

Can i take 2 cd (CD and or DVD) burners, gut them out and take the diodes that burn the data on the cd and use it to make different art and design on wood? if so, would a single one work or do i have to mount multiple ones to get it to burn wood? and is there any difference in the diodes srength in a CD and DVD burner? and im not gonna go crazy with it and do "bad" stuff.

Hi guys and gals, I just ripped apart a broken pioneer dvd burner of mine (digging for the laser diode inside) Apart from some nifty fans, motors, springs etc. I also came across these inside the reading/writing head of the burner. One definitely is a laser. But as often pointed dvd burners tend to have multiple (2) lasers. Now I wonder which of these items is the second one? All of the three upper items were pointing inside the head and (via some mirrors and lenses) towards the lens shown at the bottom of the photo. So they all seem to be involved in either creating or receiving (reading sensor?) of the laser beam. Hope some brave soul can give me some hints on these.

I have a fairly small kitchen, and as such, I would like to make a burner cover for it. What I was thinking was something could be folded. Not only to save space when I don't need it on the stove at all, but in hopes of being able to keep it on half the stove, fold it up, and have access to two burners. However, I am unsure what to use to do this. I know that the heat from an active burner would burn most woods, and produce a fire hazard. But, I don't know what other materials would be workable enough to do such a thing. I was thinking of just covering the bottom of some MDF to reduce heat transfer through the MDF, as right now, that is what I am using when I am not using the stove at all.

Question by Atul009 | last reply
I'd like to get a roll of 16mm silver emulsion camera film and then transfer a HEAP of digitised documents to it for storage in hard copy, in the micro film format. I know how to do it, but doing it is a different thing. In fact I'd like to make the whole system, from scanning on a desk top scanner, and or, perhaps photographing documents directly. I'd like to be able to record digitised documents onto film and film to digitised documents. But the real need is to convert scanned in documents to microfilm - so we can forget the rest for the time being. I'd like to do just the conversion of digital documents to microfilm - but on the cheap, and I'd be prepared to compromise a bit of speed and other factors as long as the imagry was up to a reasonably high standard for documents. I will read up and contact these people and Kodak etc.. but I am also looking to improvise as I am on a limited budget and I guess it's really a case of finding a USB type projector with the lighting and the lensing that instead of putting it up on the big screen, shrinks the image to fit in a frame on 16mm film. That may require specialist imaging equipment, parts and very accurate adjustment. So if anyone knows how to do this on the cheap, it would be appreciated. Here is the more or less cashed up way of getting it all done, this covers it in a nutshell: http://imagescan.com/daw/index.htm Digital Document Archival to Microfilm The Digital Revolution Digital imaging has revolutionized document management. Imaged documents occupy almost no physical space, can be easily secured, searched for content, or made centrally accessible to an office PC. With a proper backup schedule, digital documents can be safely stored for years. Digital Memory Loss Digital documents also introduce a number of new problems. Hardware, encoding and software obsolescence loom over any digital collection. Obsolete hardware can prevent access to the data itself. Digital document also require software to read, interpret and render documents in a meaningful way. Your ability to manipulate your documents could be tied to a proprietary file encoding which leave you few options if the software company goes out of business. Even migrating from one system to another creates the possibility of data loss. Digital Archival to Microfilm How do you save your digital documents from potential oblivion? Simple; convert them to microfilm. Microfilm has been a mainstay of librarians for the last century. Documents are eye-readable and have a shelf life of at least 500 years. Compare that to CD's which degrade after as few as 5 years or hard drives and DAT tapes that can degauss after only 20 years. With our digital archival services, you can have the best of both worlds; Instant access and long-term storage. Benefits of Digital Archival: Eye readable with simple magnification Archival longevity Easily re-digitized http://imagescan.com/canon/dr5060f/dr5060_whitepaper.pdf email@example.com

Question by MonstaM | last reply
The outline is that you can deposit graphite oxide (a cheap bulk material) onto a film of PET (the plastic used in Coke bottles), hit it with a commodity infra-red laser (such as the one in a $30 LightScribe DVD burner) and end up with a form of activated carbon material that can be used as the electrode in an electrolytic capacitor. Add some aluminium foil, separator membrane and electrolyte and you've got cheap, robust energy storage. The headline numbers are a few hundred milliFarads per cubic centimetre at a few volts, which works out to 1.36kWh per cubic metre of stacked capacitors. It's still about 50 times less energy per volume than lead acid batteries, but you could store as much energy as your house will need overnight in the size of a garden shed or a set of bunk beds. They charge/discharge in seconds and retain >95% capacity at 10,000 cycles so seem suitable for storage to even out intermittent energy generation from, for example, solar or wind power. I'm really thinking about cost here- unless I'm missing something fundamental it doesn't seem like producing these on a high volume roll-to-roll process would be excessively difficult, and the cycle life means the replacement time would be many years even in heavy usage. Could you get sufficient kWh per dollar to make these a viable storage mechanism for home-scale renewables? There's a more informative article here.

Question by dc3886 | last reply
For my initial design I'm using junk box parts (electronic hobbyist/pack rat). The heating element is a 120vac, 500w burner previously used as an electric charcoal lighter. The grill cavity is 15"H x 14"D x 25"W, with two rack heights leaving room for the burner, water pan, and possibly lava rocks/bricks. The question is about temperature control. I understand 500w may or may not be enough. I'm considering a DIY full wave open loop SCR control, as I have many of the parts. The purely resistive load is @2.4-2.5 amps and should be able to be temperature controlled using demand oriented transfer or phase angle firing w/diacs. I want maximum control cheaply and am having trouble selecting an appropriate design. I have larger current SCR's in case I need a larger wattage elment. What can contributors suggest?

While trying to boil water today, there was a bit of flame briefly visible under the stainless steel kettle. Picking it up, it looked like a wet squished bug on the burner (actually bubbled metal or ceramic) ... and a slow leak in the kettle from a small burned spot. This seemed very contained. Many years ago when the oven element blew out it spewed white powder and tiny silver blobs all over the oven. So what is happening in the element when this occurs? (I don't really know what 'calrod' is made of.)

Im working on building a stirling engine which is powered by heat. The bottom cylinders will need to be heated to 4-600 C. A burner similar to an older spiral stove burner would work but I'm afraid it wouldn't be able to reach the required temperature range. The diameter of the burners surface needs to be at least 3 inches. Ive searched and searched but am unable to find much that looks like it will work. Could someone explain how to possibly make something with some sort of heating element? Any ideas?

Hey hey, I have a wood burning system that I LOVE, but at its lowest setting it burns just a touch too hot. It has a variable temperature dial, but it doesn't go quite low enough for me. Is there a way for me to reduce the power coming into it from the wall? As an example of the kind of reduction I'm looking for. If I run my small space heater off the same outlet, the wood burner burns slightly cooler at a temperature that works for me. Any help would be extremely helpful! Thank you in Advance! Mike

hi, we're building our own heating system. we're using ventilation tubes(often used on dryers) to distribute hot air through the shed, but it needs to get pretty close to an electrical cord(+/-1 inch) and the tube gets pretty hot(at least 200 degrees Fahrenheit). which is a bit of a problem, the electrical cor is the type you'd burry in the ground, and it looks like it shouldn't melt too fast, but we still ant to isolate it, any hints/tips on what kind of material to use would be appreciated...

Question by MadBricoleur | last reply
About two years ago a friend of mine told me that you could use washing machine drums as charcoal burners. Generally they would be placed on bricks, filled with charcoal and because of the holes in the sides they put out a lot of heat. It just so happened that we had recently had a good marquee blow down and I'd kept the tubing because I'm a bit of a womble (it drives my wife nuts). Anyway I set about building a tripod frame to hold the washing machine drum off the ground.
