Lab Equipments

Look at the video attached. Those of you working in biology/chemistry  research labs may be familiar with these. One of them is a rotator (with small tubes fixed in the clips) and the other one is an orbital shaker (well, technically they're both sold as rotators). Can anyone please help me with building either or both of these. I have never done a DIY project before and would love to start with these. It doesn't have to be exact same design. It could be something very simple but functionally similar. It should be able to run for extended periods without overheating (24-48 hours). Also, I would prefer something that can run in a cold room (4 degree Celsius) but I can use anything right now. Much thanks in advance!

Chemistry equipment list?

Hello Fellow Instructablers!       Its been a while since I have made a post but I am back with a burning question!  I have a great interest in science and chemistry and always wanted to preform experiments seen on page of authors like Nurdrage for example. But I have never had the required equipment or chemicals to do these. I have taken a high school chemistry class and gotten my stuff down and now am prepared to take on the challenge of the lab. I have a birthday coming on on the 24th and my parents said if I wanted to get into chemistry I should ask for equipment and chemicals or what I need for my birthday.      So I will, but I need help. From an experienced chemist or someone who has done this before. Can anyone give me a list of basic-intermediate lab equipment that is needed for most experiments? I don't want to get one of those chemistry kits for kids since those are so restricted and only let you do the experiments given to you, not very fun So I want to get free use equipment and chemicals for any procedure. But I have no idea what is needed most or least and would really appreciate it if someone were able to do this for me. Just in the comments or PM, have a list of stuff I should ask for if I wanted to kick start my chemistry, what that item is used for, the price and its frequency of use to determine what I should decide on if there were to be a conflict. I would really appreciate any help I can get from you guys cause my birthday is coming up soon! Thanks everyone! ~Ostomesto

Roadtripping Accommodations and Equipment?

My best friend and I are planning a cross-country roadtrip this summer 2010. Starting out in Kansas City, MO, we plan on driving to Los Angeles and back within two weeks or so. Most of our money will probably go towards gas and food, so saving as much as possible when it comes to sleeping is very important. We're more than willing to camp, both in a tent and even in the car. There is an idea of staying in towns and cities for a few days at a time to increase our time abroad // our overall experience. If anyone has any tips, tricks, or anything else to offer, please let me know! Thanks much.

Keeping my equipment warm

Recently i went to take pictures in the middle of the night at Subfreezing temperatures and the front of my lens formed ice. so i need to keep the lens warm, there are many solutions but the one i thought would be fun to use is the use of a heating element. I found resistance heating wire, i would like to make an object that could fit around my lens and keep it warm. to prevent overheating i will use a microcontroller with temperature sensors to cut of the supply of electricity at a certain temperature. i just want to keep the lens at more than 5 degrees centigrade. I think my 12v lead acid battery will be enough for this kind of project. My question is how to do it, how much heating wire should i use? how much heat will it make? what wire should i use? Will it work? Any other ideas are welcome.

Inherited old electrical equipment -Teacher

I inherited a classroom full of old electrical equipment and parts. The high school's pathway has changed throughout the years and no one uses the equipment anymore. Some of the parts include resistors, soldering equipment, wires and cables and bulbs, multimeters, voltometers, alligator clips, etc. I teach an introduction to coding class and I have no background in electrical anything. I would like to create a maker space for these objects, but was wondering if anyone has ideas for starter projects that I could lead the students through, to get them familiar with these types of materials, and working with basic circuits? If we could throw in some coding, that would be even better! I'd love to use some of this equipment.

Active Noise Cancellation for cars not equipped

I am playing with an idea. Higher end cars come with active noise cancellation systems to make the drive quieter and more enjoyable. However compact and subcompact class cars do not. With the noise canceling technology is available on every shelf for headphones, I am wondering if this could be hacked and repurposed to reduce road noise in a car. The system (Im presuming) would require one microphone, one noise canceling circuit board, and one speaker per wheel well. So it would require two pair of noise canceling headphones to accomplish. The idea is to improve the cabin noise quality in an off the shelf kind of way. Currently there are no aftermarket systems within the normal financial reach of most people. Only a hand full of aftermarket systems out there are available and priced @ 4K USD or more. If this works, it could be marketed at around 100 USD per unit. And provide a much nicer driving experience to the compact and subcompact cars.  By placing the microphones under the carpet and on the wheel wells metal surface the system should ignore the stereo, and correct road noise transmitted from the wheels to reduce cabin noise. Stereo interference is a common problem with cabin mounted microphones on OEM systems. So, your mission if you choose to accept it, is to devise a way to reduce road noise in a compact or subcompact car using off the shelf noise cancellation circuitry available to the average person. If your successful this should be a very easy way to upgrade most cars not equipped with such a system. Having a noise canceling system in a car reduces noise fatigue, and improves the driving experience for all of us.

process for anodizing aluminum with limited equipment?

Recently I have learned the basics of anodizing aluminum, and from what I understand the basic process is to clean of the aluminum bit to be anodized, stick it in a bath of a dilute solution of sulfuric acid, and do some electrolysis with the anodizing bit connected to the anode or positive of a supply, then pulling it out some time later and cleaning it off with soapy water and rinsing, and coloring the metal in a thin runny die, then wiping off excess and boiling the part. So first of all, do I need sulfuric acid? Any substitutes? Will HCL work, or a weak acid like vinegar or even salty water?  If the purpose of the sulfuric acid is to allow free ions to flow in the water, I do not see why it would not work. However, I am not a chemist, and my experimentation with electrolysis is limited to 6th grade science and dropping 9V batteries in salty water. (My favorite experiment was at home when using copper  and coins as the electrodes and watching blue-green corrosion develop and sink until the copper wire was made brittle and thin. Caused some AA rechargeable batteries to explode in the process though lol!) Also, will any die work? For really small parts, will it be possible to evenly die them with sharpie, standard paper markers, and/or highlighters? What dies will work well? Should the dies be water based, or based on some other thinner?

One-Stop Shop for Makers

Hi Everyone,  I'm Sarah Calvillo, a visual artist and interactive designer based in San Francisco. I created Steampunk Mr. Potato Head on instructables a while back.  I recently built the first one-stop shop for makers in the U.S. to find and book affordable studio time. Growing up, I've watched my father build our house from his personal workshop. Living in the city, I've found there is limited space to build my own projects. I wanted to create a platform where you could rent space and resources from your community. Funding this project was a major challenge, so I resorted to bartering design for development services with a friend to build Concourse. It took us a couple months to build and launch the site. My only advice for someone replicating this project like this is not to fear being scrappy or hacky. Build what you can, then iterate on what you've built. As a one-woman operation, I’ve been focusing my efforts on helping the Bay Area to start. However, Concourse is open for anyone anywhere to use. You can either rent out your workshop or rent someone else. Visit us  Hope I can help you continue making a create cool stuff on Instructables. DM me for more information about Concourse. Alright ladies and gents, take good care and thanks for your time. All the best, Sarah

Need advice on video cameras and equipment for workshop recordings

I’m renovating my basement and getting a new craft workspace.  I dabble primarily in costumes/cosplay and terrariums.  I’d like to install a few permanent video cameras to do overhead recording of my primary workbench and my sewing bench to capture time-lapse and real-time recordings of my work. I need some recommendations for:   -  Cameras I can permanently affix to the ceiling and plug directly into power and run a feed right to my Mac Mini.    -  Something that will produce a nice quality video appropriate for instructional videos – I don’t have an abundance of natural light in my workshop, though I plan to install plenty of supplemental lighting.  Looking for something under $200 (under $100 would be even better so I can get 2!)     -  Advice for setting up those cameras to record directly onto a Mac Mini and being able to have a feed show on my monitor.    -  Can I get cameras/software that can do both time-lapse and real-time recordings?  If I’m working on a project that takes 20 hours to build, I don’t need 20 hours of real-time recording - I’m assuming time-lapse would be much more manageable from a file–size standpoint. Any help or advice is welcome!  Thanks in advance!
