bearing to shaft

How would I secure a 1/4" id bearing to a 1/4"shaft? The bearing slides on very easily and is a little sloppy. I bought these from a supply co. thinking a 1/4" id bearing would fit properly on a 1/4"shaft. Any one have and ideas?

resistor id?

This might sound stupid, but being brand new to electronics i need to pose this question, i found a scematic with 3 resistors on, 1 is a variable rated as R1 100K, the second R2 1K, the third R3 270R, the problem is the third resistor, what does the "R" stand for?

How to secure metal shaft into bearing with larger ID? Answered

A question for mechanical gurus :) I'm building motorized Igus camera slider based on Kokomonstrum design. I have a shaft that's 1/4" OD that needs to go inside bearing block that has bearing with ID of 5/16". I know I need some kind of bushing, but ones I bought at McMaster don't fit bearing opening (even tho they are 5/16 OD). What are my options? Tape wrapped around shaft? Epoxy? Can't think of anything else :(

Low friction "bearings"

For several of my projects I required some sort of bearing that would not only allow for a minimised free play but also very low friction.Before you get too exited: This is not a new type of bearing or anthing for heavy duty loads, not even for ongoing use without servicing.I found that even slightly heavier things rotated on makishift bearing far easier if the axle was verticall instead of horizontally.This gave me the idea to try a simple needle-bearing approach.This is how it goes:1. Grind and polish your axle to get a nice needle point - it must be perfectly centered!I prefer to do this with the axle in a fast spinning drill on a fine grinder.The polishing in a simlilar way, but please do not try it with a cloth in your hand on a spinning axle!2. The other part of the bearing is a screw or pin with a punch mark.I grinded and polished a punch for this so it has an angle of 60° and polished it to a mirror finnish.If alignment is of importance then of course the pin/screw must work for this purpose!If in doubt make it spind an use a pencil to get the true center.A drop of sewing machine oil and it spins nice and with very little friction.The key is to adjust the gap(s) between axle and punch mark to next to nothing.You don't want any pressure along the axle as you would "drill" a hole into your mounts.And you don't want it too loose to avoid wobble.I hope it might give you an idea for your next project.

Pcduino arduino IDE? Answered

I just got my PcDuino from the arduino contest, and I can't get any IO to work, using the arduino coding.  I tried following any tutorials that exist, but there are few, and don't account for the problems I had.  1) example files would not execute, even when recompiled, launched from LXTerminal, etc.  arduino IDE would not unzip.  When I used my regular pc to unzip it and put it on the pcduino with a flash drive (I copied the files to the pcduino, and even set it as executable), but the arduino shell script refuses to run.  Apparently the new distro of ubuntu has arduino IDE built in, is there a way to update without using another computer? If anyone's had sucess just blinking an LED, did you have any similar problems, and if so, how did you get it to work? (I am NOT a linux guy, this is my second linux device after a raspberry pi, which I also got in many a shouting match with).

My name is Kiteman, and I'm an addict... needing a fix!

Some time ago, Lost started on British TV. I'd heard it was good, but I missed the pilot. I also heard that, if you missed the pilot, nothing else made sense.  So, I avoided watching the series, figuring I'd catch the repeats. ...and suddenly they're on season five, and I haven't seen any of them! So, I bought season one on DVD.  Seven discs, twenty-five episodes and a bunch of extras. I picked it up on Saturday, and despite spending a day in school, and a day visiting a friend and her new baby (awww.....), and managing to hunt down my first Mediterranean Gull, I've just watched episode 13 17. Please, no spoilers, I just wanted to say... Whoa! UPDATE: All done.  Twenty-five episodes, and the extras (except the commentaries - I don't like commentaries). We never got to see the Big Scary Monster (although it sounded distinctly mechanical by the end), we never found out where Ethan came from, nor the polar bears. What about the four on the raft?  Last we saw it was still burning, and little Walt! So, I'm now haunting ebay for Season Two - we need to find what's down that ladder....

7.1 DIY audio switch, please help

Dear Instructables community,I stumbled on to this site while looking for a DIY solution to a problem where no commercial alternative seems available. The problem? I need a dual input/output switch for my 7.1 audio system.What I found on this site was: https://www.instructables.com/id/35mm_51_Surround_Sound_Switch_Splitter_Box/I'm "OK" with a soldering iron, but I've never really built anything before, and I'm not familiar with some of the terminology. Really, the only things I have done in the past have been soldering plugs on the ends of wires and re-soldering loose connections. Even so, I'd like to build something similar but for 7.1 with dual inputs and outputs.I'm hoping you can help me make the right choices building this.My original plan was going to be just like the 5.1 version with a few most switches, but instead of the input 3.5mm jack as the source for the switch, I would just connect another switch and then connect it to two 3.5mm jacks.(See attached image)Will this work without taking a hit in audio quality?Is there an easier or more efficient way of doing this?Here's the hardware I selected initially:Switches: http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId;=10001&catalogId;=10001&productId;=76260&3.5mm jacks: http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/SMJ/3.5MM-STEREO-PHONE-JACK-W/N.O.-SWITCH/1.htmlI don't understand most of the terminology on these parts, but they look like they should work.Please let me know what you think, I'm open to advice.Thanks!

Got a 1/2 HP motor

I just got a Got a 1/2 HP motor for free from my school (there were 2 old vacuum pumps that were covered in dirt and have been in a shed for like a year. One of my friend got one and is turning it into a lathe. They are really nice and quiet GE motors. Their bearing just needed some lube and then they are all fixed!). All it needs is a capacitor (can get from ebay for like 15 bucks including shipping) What should I make with it? So far I'm thinking rotary spark gap for my tesla coil (take THAT plamana!) but i'd like to utilize the power more (don't really need 1/2 HP for a spark gap!). Any other ideas? BTW I'm not making a gokart. lol. But it would be cool.... BUT NO

I am fighting a little war with some oil pumps.Attached to a 1/2HP motor the construction is quite simple.To prevent leaking there is a spring loaded oil seal between pump and motor.But this seal is never 100% if you deal with 180°C hot vegetable oil....At these temps the stuff is literally thinner than water and sooner or later finds a way out.Main problem I am facing is the drying of the vegetable oil.Over time it turns intoa really hard resin.But before that it manages to creep all the way into the motor bearing in the front part of the motor.It drives out the grease and slowly replaces it with drying resin util the whole thing seizes.Rebuilding is a true pain in the back as it is a 180V DC motor with build in rectifier and regulator to run on 220V AC mains.Things I tried so far:Adding a good amount of high temperature grease bewtween oil seal and motor housing - only a marginal longer service time was achieved.Making a custom sleeve to go over the motor shaft that is glued onto it - worked well, or so I thought until I realised the silicone oil content in the oil slowly destroys all gues I tried so far.Adding a shim disk right on top of the bearing - this worked best so far and almost doubled the time until the motor failed. Downside is that it takes me over 4 hours to fully rebuild a motor just to get said dik in and I have no replacements anymore.It was suggested to me to set the back of the motor slightly higher than the front so the oil would not go anywhere near the bearing.This I tried to implement about 8 weeks ago and as the motor got noisy last week I took it all apart for a service again.Despite the motor mounted at an angle of about 5° the oil still creeped past the shim disk and into the bearing.So I did some simple tests with the hot oil and indeed it forms a slowly creeping film tha travels upwards on a shaft.I guess the rotation helps here as well to spread the drops around.And yes, last time I used "fully sealed" bearing with an build in cover and still it fails :(I would love to try something flexible but long lasting to seal the bearing against the rest.Something in the region of a rubbery stuff that can be applied like a sealant.But hard enough to survive a few weeks of shaft rotations.Are there any really sealed bearings available?Bearings that, for example would be fine working submerged in liquid without any liquid being able to enter?It is clearly a desing fault of the machine to make money through spare parts but that's not the point here.I can not replace the pump as it is an intergral part of other things attached.And not really that easy to find a pump capable of dealing with hot oil anyway.Is there any grease available that does not turn into a liquid at these high temps and would it be possible to get ito into a bearing?Running out of ideas here guys, so feel free to throw in whatever comes to mind even if it seems odd!I just need a way to keep highly viscous, boiling hot oil from entering a bearing ;)

what should I do with 20 1-inch diameter steel balls? Answered

My brother recently gave me 20 1 inch diameter steel balls that he was trying to use to cool down coffee without watering it down (in hindsight, aluminum has a much higher heat density, but that's beside the point). I've had them laying around for a while now, and apart from a big newton's cradle or maybe a huge marble machine, I can't think of anything to do with them. ideas?

Assassin's Creed 1 & 2 Piece of Eden Apple

Everybody has been making their own hidden blades, but how about we try another item from the game? The Piece of Eden apples. They are glowing, futuristic spheres, which have the ability to control people's minds and cause intense Hallucinations. From seeing them, it looks like we can use the same basic Idea as this guy here with a Glowing box: https://www.instructables.com/id/Awesome-led-cube/ The Apple looks very similar in that the light emanates from behind the metal pieces, glowing at times, and you'd also need a way to turn it off and on, or for an added effect, but an electomagnetic switch inside instead of a pushbutton, where you can hold it and make it glow, but when you hand it off, it fades, or it only glows when placed on a base or something of the such. Just thought i'd get the ball rolling and see what we can come up with!

How can I identify the power rating (wattage) of my scavenged resistors? Answered

I am currently making a mini guitar amplifier, from this instructable, https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Sweet-Portable-Guitar-Amp/, and i need a 1kΩ resistor. I have accumulated a few components by de-soldering and scavenging parts from old, and broken electronic devices. When I found out i needed a 1kΩ resistor, I looked up the ring code for that value and scanned over my broken electronic circuit boards to see if i could find a match. Which i did, but i do not know how many watts the resistor is rated at. The resistor in question is no more than 3mm in length. I know that quite a lot of resistors are more like 5mm in length. Can you tell from the physical size what the resistor I have is?(I will include a couple of pictures)

usb enclosure hack

Current inventory: 2 Seagate ST340015A IDE hds (40 gb each) 1 Rosewill External usb 2 ide enclosure (pl2506 controller chipset) 1 40 conductor ide cable (mobo-slave-master) soldering iron/solder way, wayyy to much free time. OK, given the above items, is it possible to run both drives at the same time from the one enclosure? Fitting inside the enclosure is not an issue. So far, I have removed the original ide cable the came with the enclosure controller. And, installed my own ide cable. The only drive that is detected is the one jumpered as master, at either location on the cable(master vs slave). No matter what the other drive is jumpered as(slave, cable select), it is not detected. I tried setting both as master and neither are recognized. I have run out of ideas... suggestions would be great. And please dont suggest getting another enclosure. IM CHEAP!

Toy-Story 3 lots-o huggin bear conspiracy.

So i finally watched Toy Story3.(which happens to be epic) But I happend to relate lots-o huggin bear to adolf hitler....Why?you might be wondering. Well here's my list of thing that support my thesis. Also this is sorta crazy..maybe im just over thinking this but it does all make sense. 1-The biggest indicator is the line "Things were fine until lots-o came along. and he made a pyramid and put him self at the top of it!" which is what hitler did in the 1930's by making germany a dictatorship. 2-Another thing i noticed is how:Big baby,the rock moster,and the bug. Were alot like the SS by doing lots-o's bidding no matter what. 3-SPOILER-Near the end of the movie when they get past the trash grinding thing. And lots-o was gonna hit the stop button. He didn't and the toys he didn't like(woody,buzz,etc.) were going to end up in the trash incinerator. Which made me think of the mass burnings of jew's during the holocaust just because hitler didn't like them. 4-I also related to quote by pricklepants(the clown)"Sunnyside is a place of ruin and despair, ruled by an evil bear who smells of strawberries!" To how the concentration are usually described in history books/storys. Also i related how the evil toys(hitler,SS)lived well in the butterfly room.versus how poor the good toys(jew's) were treated awfully in the catepillar room. And how they showed the kids doing all sorts of crazy things to buzz and the gang. Well thats all i have now but i plan on writing some stuff down the next time i watch it. So expect more...also i know this is a very far out there conspiracy but if you've seen the movie then perhaps you'll agree.
