Crushed stone dehumidifier?

We have a house in Maine and when we bought it there was a big built-in box in the basement 3' X 8' by 4' tall filled with crushed stone.  It is huge.  It has an electric fan that pulls air down through the stone and pipes it upstairs to a sun porch.  Unfortunately the fan has never worked for us so we are unable to "test" the system.  This basement does get damp in the spring and we would like confirmation that this is probably a home-made dehumidifier.  What do you think?

I am CRUSHED.... :-(

I had finally gotten my "project" (for the gift exchange) finished, well except for some cosmetic touches to make it look nicer then it did.  I tested it for the last time, and a wire crossed and the speaker when POOF in a puff of smoke. This thing has me so depressed at not being able to finish it and get it sent that I am having troubles just getting back in and tearing it all out to replace the speaker and maybe put in a dampener resister to prevent it from happening again......I AM going to finish this one way or another......just wanted you all to know I am having to deal with a lot lately (my Mom becoming ill and maybe needing full time "residence in a facility" and being the only one left in the family willing to do anything, a whole lot has been dumped into my lap since July. But I DO intend on getting this out somehow, but Tuesday...but I am so sorry for this horribly long delay.

fake prop rock crushed to powder

I'm looking for something to make a crushable rock. I've seen in movies & series where a strong man would crush a rock, billiard ball or even a bolling ball. It was suggested "Flower Foam". Is their another name for this crush to powder like foam or, is there another type of stuff to make this crush to powder effect?

Looking for crushed cow picture, please help.

First of all, it's not what it sounds like! Well, maybe it is. In my geology class today, we were told that there was once a cow that had fallen into an exposed part of the San Andreas fault, then the fault closed up.....leaving only the tail above ground. We were challenged to find this picture, and i've gone 40+ pages into a google search, i've looked through the list of wierd topics on wikipedia (and had a damn good laugh), but i've not found what i was looking for. Can anyone help? Can any of you either post the picture here, or post a link to a site where i can find it?

Best Way to make uniform crushed glass at home

I obtained an abrasive blaster and I decided to use crushed glass as the media. I have a steady supply of beer an wine bottles that I can crush but have a slight problem. I am currently useing a capped steel pipe and a baseball bat to crush the glass. The results are anywhere from large quarter sized chunks to dust. I want to have crushed glass roughly uniform in size as well as to be able to make larger or smaller sizes depending on the application (rust, paint, etching, etc). Does anyone know of a way a DIYer could make a uniform crushed glass abrasive to use in a blaster?

Does anyone have a plan for a motor driven aluminum can crusher that can crush multiple cans at once?

My family collects a large amount of aluminum pop cans each year and takes them in for scrap every few months. The problem is that it takes so long to crush them all by foot. I've done some looking and have seen can crushers (mostly mechanical) that crush one at a time, but I'm looking for something with a electric motor and some sort of small hopper where I could dump cans in to be crushed and dropped into a bucket. Any ideas? Thanks!

How do I know whether or not by grade 8 crush likes me? Answered

I'm in grade 6 and I really like this guy but he's in grade 8 and I rarely ever see him. I only started seeing him more when he got in trouble so when I enter the school in the morning he's always there facing the door helping with the lunch "tickets" that I get everyday just to get his attention and even then it feels like he likes me but I'm not sure because he's always so emotionless around me and when I go to get lunch with my best friend, my crush only says hi to my best friend and looks at me I always feel he's eyes on me the only time we ever talked was when I first meet him I asked his name and he smiled and replied, the second was at lunch when I was laughing like crazy and he came up to us and started laughing too cause he over heard me saying something so weird and crazy to a friend of mine and everyone was like what, so yah I really don't know if he likes me or not?, I keep getting mixed messages and somethings it feels like he's ignoring me By the way I'm 5'3 and he's like 5'7 or 5'8 (I don't know why I added that in :>) and he's like the jock of the school, he's popular, cool, and calm and I'm well known around the school but I wouldn't say I was popular, I'm too confident for my own good and I'm not afraid to voice out my opinions and I think that me and my crush are a perfect match

How do I talk with my crush and what should I do?

I love a girl in school and we are both really shy. She looks at me all the time and I learned a little bit about girls body language and I found out that many signs show she loves me.We rarely talk with each other. Once there were exams and I did it so bad that I thought I would fail and go from school so I gave her a love letter with the help of my friend ( I wrote me name on it) and she was smiling with her friends, then I was gone with me friends when suddenly her brother (who is in the same school and class with me) called me and told me that the principle is calling me. He was really angry. When I went to the principle my crush was talking with her. The principle asked me about the letter, at that time I saw sadness on her face and she wasn't looking at me (she looks at me from far and not when I am near her) the principle told me love is not allowed in this school. After that I lost hope and forget love and thought she hated me but she was still looking at me from far away. We don't talk. and I think she still loves me and gave the latter to the principle because of her brother ( who hates to see boys talk about his sister ) so my questions are: 1. does she loves me.( she looks at me from far away and laughs when I am near her but she runs away from me when she brother is near by) 2. Now that I have told her I love her I can't talk because she already knows everything so how do I talk with her. 3. I she know I love her and still doesn't talk so what should I do now I am confused and please give me good answers that help me not the ones that discourage me.

Hey. you know what? if you like a girl, tell her! you'd be surprised by the reply. if you are real shy, give her a note! and dude, dont ask someone out because of their looks. do it because you like them for the. if they are cute, or hot, or whatever your looking for, consider it just a bonus, O.k. I learned the hard way. i liked a girl since 2006, (two years) and i didnt tell her,(the worst thing you could EVER do!) so when you get a crush, don't wait, GO FOR IT!!!

electromagnetic pinch effect demonstrator

Greetings, Instructors! I've done some searching in the Technology section already, but (as you know) it's huge, and I didn't see anything that was close enough to what I'm looking for except the electromagnetic coil gun. I want to replicate a demonstrator I saw, once upon a year, at the Smithsonian Institution. A thin-walled metal tube was dropped into the spaces inside two stacked, separated coils, as if it were an axle for a pair of wheels. A brief, large current was then run through the coils; the induced currents in the tube produced the "theta pinch" effect, crushing the regions of the tube that were within the coils. (The machine was set up to sell the products for a token price; the impressively crushed tube was dispensed as a souvenir.) I need advice on the type and capacity of capacitor, thyristor, power supply, etc. to employ. Has anyone here built one, or know someone who has? Thanks!

The point of buying a Cocktail Shaker is to mix alcohol with other alcohols and crushed ice to make it cold all the way through right? If that's the case, why bother BUYING one when you can reuse an old 1-liter water bottle or some such to do the same job? Is there any reason that I'm missing that would prove this theory false?
