Unimat Classic

Hello there, I am a new member to Instrucables although I have been looking through some of the wonderful creations on the site for some time now.  I’ve noticed a few members have used a Unimat Classic to produce their creations.  I am thinking of investing in one.  I have had a look on Google for some decent reviews, but I haven't been able to find many.  It seems the feedback ranges from “it's the best thing in the world for hobbyists” to “it's nothing more than a glorified child’s toy”!  I'm after some sensible feedback from members who own one or have had experience of using one.  I'm particularly interested in knowing how well the table saw handles metal and how well the lathes (both wood and metal) operate.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Silent classics - Recommendations?

OK, it's time to introduce Conker-X to silent comedies. Where do I start?  I'm torn between Chaplin, Keaton and Laurel & Hardy. Remember he's an intelligent 11 year-old. There are a lot of slightly-similar compilation DVDs out there, so I'd appreciate a link to your recommendations as well.

Rock Music on Classical Instruments?

For our spring orchestra concert at my school, I convinced my teacher to pick an arrangement of 21 Guns by Green Day as one of our pieces. Why pick 21 Guns over Don't Stop Believing? Because I like it better. THAT's why :P So...I was wondering. Has anyone else played an EPIC rock/punk/alternative or just something totally UN-CLASSICAL on a classical insturment? Perhaps something as awesome as a Green Day song? I play violin btw xD

Thompson Classic/Euro Classic electric bike headlamp & mainboard wiring.?

Hi Folks. I have a bit of a dilemma I hope one of you good people can help me with. Nostalgic Girl asked me to get her old electric bike back on the road for her & all is going well apart from one small problem. Someone had a go at it a couple of years ago & managed to unplug most of the wiring in the headlamp where all the clever stuff is controlled like the horn lights & most importantly the speed. Normally this wouldn't be a problem as in a sensible world if you have six things to plug in you would use six plugs & sockets to wire it up, unfortunately on this there are six plugs but they have only used two different plug & socket sets one two pin type & one three pin type. Just to add insult to injury there are two three pin with Red, Green, Black and one with Red, Green, Yellow & the Two pin ones have two Black, Red one for the horn & another for the front light & another Blue, Brown which I believe is for the brake light. I would try a bit of trial & error work but I am just a little bit worried that the error bit may end up in my having to buy a new board. Can anyone tell me where I can get a wiring diagram from? Or know which plug goes where on the board? Thanks in advance for your help you clever people. Kev.

XP "Classic" search in Windows 7? Answered

It took a lot to make me change from XP, but I do like Windows 7 which I'm now running on a couple of machines.   However . . . The thing I miss is the 'classic' explorer search function which gave a no-nonsense way of finding any set of files on your computer (indexed or not) with proper wildcarding and various other settable criteria. OK, Microsoft search V4 (or whatever it's called) has all sorts of bells and whistles, but I'm finding it unwieldy to use and find myself opening a DOS box for speed. Google finds a lot of posts from other people who liked the old search, but no answers. Has anyone here found a utility which replicates the old search functionality?

NOT Ratfink, but Batfink. Has anybody ever seen this show? You know, with Batfink's super sonic sonar radar, his wings of steel that cannot be harmed, evil genius Hugo-a-go-go, his sidekick Karate, the Battillac that looks like a VW-bug and always makes Batfink glad that it has a thermo-nuclear plutonium insulated something, the announcer that always stops right before something horrible will happen to Batfink and asks us what will happen, and the chief. I used to watch it on Boomerang, but they stopped airing it. It's a funny and cool show, made by Hal Seeger.

Neither my computer or Itunes will recognize the ipod. I am using a DealExtreme 1.8 to cf adapter and a Kingston 512mb cf card (decided to test with it before I invest in a larger one) How can I solve this problem?

Ipod Classic is frozen on "Do Not Disconnect" screen

My 120 gb ipod classic 6th generation goes on but goes straight to the "okay to disconnect" screen even when its not plugged in. I cant get it to do any more than that. I tried resetting it by sliding hold/unhold button and then holding both the menu button and middle button at the same time until the apple appears but then soon after it goes right back to the "okay to Disconnect" screen. itunes wont even detect it. My computer detects it for a second bbut then it disapears. i put my ear to it to see if its spinning and im hearing a faint clicking sound. Is it a goner?

Help with iPod Classic USB Portable Charger? Answered

I've seen so many portable iPod chargers out there but I'm not that experienced to handle the electronics. So, what I wanted to do was to take apart old adapters and connect it with a 9V battery (with the battery slot from an old alarm clock) A couple of questions I have are.. -Does the adapter have a regulator to bring the 9V battery down to the proper amount of volts needed to charge the iPod? -How much power is needed to charge the iPod? -On the battery wire thing, which wire is negative, which is positive? -Which wire (on the battery slot) is supposed to connect to which wire on the circuit? -On the circuit board, which is negative, which is positive? Specs: -(Relying on the informational sticker on the adapter) Circuit board input: AC100 - 240V 50/60Hz -(Relying on the informational sticker on the adapter) Circuit board output: DC5V = 200mA -More specs in pictures Hopefully, the circuit board already has a regulator, to bring the 9V down to a 5V, so I wanted to post this to ask the experts on 'ibles to see if it probably has a regulator or by using the pictures.. thanks so much! If you need more pictures of anything, just ask; thanks again for helping :D

Classic Video Game Quilts - Zelda and Galaga

Check out the amazing Zelda: The Quilt of Power and Galaga Retro Arcade Quilt from Carolina Patchworks.I've had the Zelda tune running through my head for weeks now. Now up on Etsy.The Legend of Zelda may have introduced an entire generation to the joy of colorful worlds of monsters and heroes filled with melodies of bleeps and bloops, all contained in a little plastic box connected with wires to the TV.Bosses and Triforces, dungeons and new swords, secret doors and endless maps; these inspired fear and joy beyond anything a 256x224 set of pixels wavering on an ancient CRT had any right to do. Return to that world by way of a 64-by-64 grid of pixels emblazoned in all their low-resolution glory across a 100% cotton quilt. Octorok and Leever threaten Link amidst the rocky Overworld's bushes and water, as a Darknut patrols in his Underworld dungeon.- Approximately 64" square.- Made from 100% cotton fabric and batting.- Machine wash cold, tumble dry low.- Pieced and quilted by machine in smoke-free, pet-free, and geek-friendly home.via Evil Mad Scientist.
