Belt feed

Does anyone have some kide of blueprint on how to make a belt feed MP. I have seen the examples of ones on howstuffworks.com but that isn't helping me much right now. I'm not really sure how I can belt feed it through. I am working with a P.A. Luty's 9mm. Can some one help me on this. If you have been able to make a belt feed system can you show me yours in photos. I think that would also be a great instructable too. I'm not to sure how to make a belt for 9mm rounds either. Instead of sticking with his design on the magazine I think it would be great to have a belt feed system on this weapon.

RSS Feed inconsistencies

I prefer to keep up to date with new posts (specifically in the Food section) via the RSS feeds. Problem is, they are wildly inconsistent with the actual content of the site, it seems. When I check the RSS feed, and then compare that feed to the corresponding page of the Food section, almost none of the entries are the same. I don't know if the RSS feed is just a few days behind or what, but I've had this problem for months! I really want to keep up to date with the posts in the Food section, but the RSS feed is not at all reflecting the current content of the site, and hardly ever changes. On a related note, it would seem that there is only ONE RSS feed per category, but there are different pages within each category (Popular, Zeitgeist, Newest, Featured). RSS feeds are offered on each page, but closer inspection reveals that they are all the SAME feed. I would get a lot more use out of this site if the RSS feeds were correct.

Feed The Birds Day

"Feed the Birds Day" is, oddly, two days - the weekend of 25th and 26th October 2008.All around the UK, RSPB volunteers will be holding events where the public can learn what to feed garden and wild birds, how to do it properly, and why it is important.You, too, no matter where you are reading this, should be doing your part for your local birdlife, since bird species around the planet are plunging in numbers at a frankly horrifying rate.Follow one of the existing projects, create your own bird-feeding Instructable, or just feed the birds, but every contribution will help.Did you know that a typical nest full of sparrow-sized birds will need anywhere between 10,000 and 50,000 feeds of insects to make it as far as fledging?RSPB Feed the Birds DayWhat, how and when to feed

How would you trap fruit flies so that you could feed them to foul (chickens,ducks, etc.) and fish? Answered

I've often marvelled at how fast fruit flies appear after dumping a fresh supply of the morning's fruit juicer cocktail mush on the top of our worm box. How can I trap those insects _economically_ and then feed them to livestock? Chickens, duck, fish etc. would readily gobble the fruit flies up IF the flies weren't flying around... how would you capture lots of wild fruit flies? I have been thinking about a trap that allows them to fly in but not fly out and then throwing the trap into a freezer to slow them down and then throwing them to the birds... but I'd like to find something that could be done entirely outdoors WITHOUT electricity. Ideas?

Wood Stove feeding radiators

Hi, I'm hear again with a completely different question. Again, any help is greatly appreciated :) I installed a wood stove last year, and I'd like to install a coil to heat water and circulate it through my existing radiator loop. I was wondering if I could do it as in the image, I would install a new pump to circulate the water. I have a combination boiler, but I'm sure that doesn't really matter. The green circles in the diagram are to illustrate taps, that way I can close off the boiler when I have the stove on and vice versa.

Feeding your MICRO TURBO

Is your little stream or creek to small to power a turbo generator. Try a Rampump This has several advantages that would not be possible without the use of this most humble and highly functional machine. A Rampump with a small head , can move the water to a reservoir or tank to an elevation of up to 50 - 80 feet, almost no limit with high head. Working around the clock this device can move a lot of water. Volume moved is dependent on water flow and physical size of the pump. with 50 head ft. the micro turbo can output some serious power. 10-15-20 minutes each hour. while draining the reservoir

DIY "FEED BACK CLOCK"

Ok, so I'm currently playing with the idea of making a "feedback clock". Except 1 to 12 is now replaced with 12 speakers, and only having one the hand which would have a microphone attached to the end of the arms. For the rotation of the arm, a geared DC motor. The problem I have is in the construction of this mechanism, so any help or thoughts would be welcomed. My original thought is constructing an amplifier with 12 outputs and 1 input. The input being a receiver, transmission coming from from the microphones attached to end of the arms. OR would it be possible to make individual smaller amps for each speaker and split take the signal from the receiver in to each amp? If I was to do a multi-channel out put amp, does anyone know what circuit design I would be looking at?

detergent feed for electric pressure washer

I know there are exspensive or maybe just newer PW's that you can add detergent to but not mine. It's just one of those hardware store 1300 PSI electric models. I'm just thinking that there has to be a way to provide some detergent to my spray. I think tapping into the feed hose with a siiphon rig would be a bad idea cuz then you'd be sending the soap through the pressure pump. It's have to be on the other end but there you have high pressure hose you might not want to cut. My thoughts flow along the lines of some sort of connector pipe comming off the output side that goes between the unit and the spray hose connector. You could make it a bit larger to hold like a dishwasher table or rig some sort of siphon hose (like a hose end sparyer) maybe. I'm not sure. My main thought isn't to use the soap for pressure CLEANING but to use the much greater reach of the pressure sprayer to spread the soap/cleaning solution farther - like up to second story siding. thanks

How can I feed ants? Answered

I know that ants have the instinct to bring all of the food they find to the Queen, so if I put ants in an ant farm-type-of-setting, will the ants even eat the food I give to them or will they not eat it and starve?  I know ants like sugary foods and dead bugs, but I need to feed them with a plant that I can grow. I am doing this for a Science Fair, and I am testing the effects of a chemical on a plant, which is in turn being fed to the ants. I need a plant that my ants will eat. Any ideas? And I have about three weeks to a month to grow this plant, and it is Winter, which makes it even harder, but I am planning on growing it inside. Any ideas on a plant to feed ants with? I am dealing with the large ants that live near my home in Gilbert, Arizona if that helps. There are two types of ants that I can tell and I am dealing with the big ones (if that makes any sense). They might be fire ants, but I have a hard time telling. The picture below is not one I took, it's from google, so it's not exact, but something like that. Thank you!
