home made tattoos

Hi everybody! I'm thinking of getting a home made tattoo. I've been looking through various home made tattoo gun designs, but as the tattoo design I have in mind is rather big I'm thinking there might be an easier way than having to "dot" it out.. So, theoretically, could one make a cut in the skin (about maybe ten inches long) with say a razorblade, and then just rub the ink into the cut? I don't wanna seem like a moron here. I know it's a risky procedure, but if it could work and I would go through with it, is there something special I should take into consideration? And what would I use for ink? I've seen the term "indian ink" used on several forums, but I'm not from the US and I don't know if the stores here in sweden even carry that stuff. Anyways, I know this may sound like a real stupid idea, but if I ever get a tattoo it's gonna be one I made myself. That's the whole idea.

Home-made UPS? Answered

I recently acquired a very large 12V SLA battery and want to make a UPS for my computer. I think I have the basic idea, but I'm not entirely sure how I would go about this. I'm guessing I could use a relay to switch from the mains to battery, but then I would need a very large capacitor to run the equipment for a few milliseconds whilst it switches. I would need a separate transformer and regulator for the relay, and also an inverter for the battery, which I will probably buy as it looks like it would be too hard to make. Is this the right approach to it?

Welders for sale THE VERY BEST HOME MADE WELDER this is the best welder, its so good that I would like to offer, to build one for you. look at the photos, the photos are not the best, but they show the basic setup, when I send it to you it will come in a metal box like any other store bought welder, I WILL ONLY SHIP THE BEST, this welder can weld up to half inch, with good penetration, NOT A TOY ...... there's also a picture I had drawn up for you to so you know I want it to look like. also I would like to tell you that since I am building a box for mine, I think that building another , at the same time would be best, thats why I have waited, do remember I ONLY SHIP THE BEST TO YOU! THE PRICE IS $70 DOLLARS if you think thats too much, go look at welders at a store, that can do as much as this one! then you'll know this is a very good deal! IMPORTANT this welder uses 3/32 welding rods,I will send you some rods so you can have some fun as soon as you get it , it can be modified to work with 1/8 rods , just buy adding another transformer, tell me what you think, at KNOWHOWDANIEL@YAHOO.COM and thats not capitalized if you don't think it possible I will LAUGH! AT YOU! HA written by Daniel Rosenthal Experimenter, scientist, etc.......

Home made energy saver

First of all sorry for my English Its just an idea, like that "Intelligent Power Strip" but on the cheap. Use a relay powered from the PC molex (5v yellow-black), so that when you turn off your computer, it turns off, for example, the sound system, modem... connected to this. I have no experience with relays or high voltage. Anybody interested?

Many of the guys have spent hundreds of dollars to purchase "official" police vehicle lights but I'm thinking I'd rather tinker and make my own. I can probably do more with them this way then be limited to what I could buy commercially.

Compressing home made biogas

Hi I'm working on a project where we are using an anaerobic digester along with a series of gas scrubbers that yields biogas containing roughly 80% methane (ch4) and 20% oxygen. I know that this proportion of methane is well above the upper explosive limit of methane (about 15% methane by volume) but the presence of that much oxygen makes me nervous.  Am I going to have trouble compressing this gas mixture without blowing a new hole in my head? I am planning on compressing the purified biogas to about 20psi at between 60-80 degrees farenheight and in a respectably blast proof gas container.  please help! (Trying to help our planet!)

home made airsoft gun??

How do i go about making one of these i have a few ideas floating around but the sound well "primative". i want to make one myself cuz for me they are too tedious to load to cheap and break easy and the ones tht are sturdy are wayyy to expansive for a weekend worrior. also the clips only hold like 15 for a handgun and we play from like 10 feet away from each other and dont need a rifle. also they just arent accurate enuff. and dont go as far. i see some ppl playing in fields like as big as football feilds and if i tried tht the ball would curve wayyyyyy off half way orrr not make it there. and the exensive ones do tht but are toooooo expansive. For me and my friends airsoft is a paintball subsistute cuz here in maryland it gets really cold and paintball supplies are only found at the nearest wal-mart. so i want a realiable semi-auto, self built gun.

Need Help With A Mini Spot Welder

I've been trying to gather information to build a welder for a special application. The use is for welding the commutator tabs and magnet wire that passes over them for small DC motors. While there are specialized and often automated welders made for this purpose, they are both large and very expensive and really intended for industrial users. I have been able to get small bits of information as to how others have done this, but it's been difficult to get the whole project laid out (there is apparently some "secrecy" involved here!?). The materials being welded (soldering isn't a preferable way to make this connection...these motors run hot and very fast) are the brass commutator tabs (approximately .030" thick material about .060" wide formed as a "U") and the copper magnet wire used to wind the poles that then passes over each brass tab...from #23 awg to #28awg. From what I've been able to gather, people have done this on a "homebrew" basis using 6V automotive battery chargers/starters that can deliver around 30 amps or more. I have very little knowledge of electronics and none at all about welding and circuit design, but am looking for information on how I might proceed after sourcing the charger/starter. I'm guessing that the "negative" cable would be adapted to use as a clamp at the commutator and would also double as a heat sink to prevent damaging the commutator and that the "positive" cable would somehow be adapted to hold some sort of fine rod that would touch each com tab to complete the welds. -Maybe a footswitch could or should be used to start/stop the weld? -Is the positive cable simply used to hold a rod for the "spot weld"?, or are there other pieces that need to be added? To my mind, it would seem that simply touching the positive to the commutator tab to make the weld and complete the circuit would simply trip a breaker at the panel or any protection device on the charger(dead short!?). -Any other information or thoughts? Thank you in advance -john
