Please do not change Instructables to much. Adding classes is very good but don't turn it into a school. I have been to school. I like Instructables the way it is. In formative helpful and exciting. I don't know how others feel but this is how I feel. Thank you .

Good news! I have been seeing whether or not I will be able to make a model Saturn Rocket for the challenge. I did bottle rockets way back in 2006, but all the stuff, Including the ubertastic launcher, is gone now. Good news is, I have found a way to splice bottles, and tested it today. Works pretty good so far, and I will be making a full scale test rocket soon. I don't have my launcher that was super awesome, but I do have a small Clark Cable launcher, hand held version. I do plan for my Saturn Rocket to not only have an Instructable, but an Instructable detailing splicing bottles, adding a parachute system, and adding a small package (in my case, the small lunar ship). If all goes well... I should finish before The end of the contest.

Off in another thread we were talking about goodkits being a good way to get your feet wet with the practicalities of electronics: how to solder, what the individual bits look like, and so on. I was lamenting the demise of Heathkit - many a engineer in my generation had their first electronics experience putting together one of Heath's kits, using their excellent instructions.So anyway, what kits are available today that offer the hobbyist a "good" and educational building experience? The kits should have good quality PCBs and components, instructions that go far beyond "solder all the components to the board in the places indicated by the silkscreen", and hopefully some amount of theory on how the thing works, and how to troubleshoot it if it's NOT working.I'll recommend:Lady Ada's stuff - I'm not sure I'm wild about online vs printed instructions, but it certainly gives you a good chance to see what you're getting into before you order anything, and it probably permits a higher level of quality in the instructions than it would be cost-effective to have printed.2Dkits Blinkies - a more limited selection, 2dkits specializes in neat little LED badge-like things

Im new to the forge community and i need some advice. I built my first forge useing the charcoal and coffie can method. i melted about 20 or more cans so far and got about 86 grams of aluminum. The crucible i used was a soup that i burned through. I done that twice. While melting I got a lot of slag. Is that normal when melting cans? I also need a good crucible. What can i use for now and where can i get a good one later. I plan to make a propane forge in the near future so a few tips here would be helpfull as well. Any and all advice would be helpfull. Thank you in advance ~Jeht Black~

I'm doing a project for a high school competition in which I built a computer and plan to skin it. I've got my skins draw and (soon to be) printed. Heres my issue, how to attach them to the computer case? I need an adhesive thats heat resistant and won't ruin as the computer warms up, it also needs to be flat in that the skin does not stick away from the case. (Some sort of spray adhesive or paint on glue). If I could get any suggestions or a good brand name I'd be very thankful.

Okay, so I'm currently building something new but I can't find the proper tube sizes for it, not even on the internet, so this is what I'm planning to do,I'm going to try to make my own steel tubing. First, I will buy a sheet of steel which I can easily buy from my local hardware store. Then I will cut them to 4 different strips, and weld them together forming a rectangular tube. Any suggestions? Tips?

There has been a shift to much younger children on this great site, kids who think that we who provide answers to their impossible dreams, are free site service robots just for them. ( Not leaving out a great many grateful individuals ! ) A lot of these kids believe we are clairvoyant about their specifics, some behave with poor street manners. My grand kids are being raised with good manners including respect. I hope you, with your children, here and other countries can avoid the, throw_away_attitude mindset. Speaking for myself, I would happily welcome being recognized a living human resource more often... A Thank you is as pleasing a response as a BA...

Hi. I am trying to save up for a laptop, and I'd like to know where I can get a pretty good one at a decent price (can't buy off eBay or Amazon). I want one with at least 4GB of RAM and a hard drive with at least 200GB. Does anyone know where to get one on the cheap and how much it costs? Thanks, TheOneAndOnlyMissingno.

I have recently discovered that CREE has released some new XHP class LEDs awhile ago, and compared the the XML line that I have been a fan of, these ones seem to blow those out of the water. However, they are still somewhat $$$, although not too much. I would like to get my grubby evil hands on a few of the XHP70s, XHP50's, and XHP35s, but the "good" ones are out of stock on mouser and digikey. On amazon there are a few listings but they are overpriced and they do not list the binning or CRI of them. Any other reputable LED sellers? I want to see how well these would work to retrofit into either an existing el-cheapo XM-L flashlight as an upgrade, or a homemade lantern/portable floodlight. I basically want 80% or 90% CRI range and Neutral / warm white, preferably neutral. As you see I am not overly picky, but I want them for good usable indoor light quality. I have been impressed by the XML light output, but not the 6000K 70% CRI crap quality light like the ones I have produce. These LEDs are roughly twice as bright for the same physical size, and about ~30-50% more efficient. What I do want, however, is the highest binning available in it's class (aka the best ones.) Not for any particular reason (other than maybe bragging rights lol), but because I just can't bring myself to order comparatively less efficient ones with low/medium CRIs for pretty much the same basic price when I know damn good and well there are better ones for sale for only pennies more. Feels like I get cheated. :( Also if I order from mouser or digikey, I guess that means I would need to mount them to a star PCB myself, that might be a challenge. Since I do not have solder paste or a proper reflow oven, I prefer to not have to do that.
