Making an instructable

Howdy! I uploaded a topic, but when I went to publish it, I kept getting an error message to add keywords, even though I had added them.  It won't publish.  Any ideas?  I hope it's still in the system someplace....

What makes a Knexpert?

Alright simple question, complex answer--what makes a knexpert? What do you guys think? Maybe now we can settle exactly what it takes so that there aren't anymore arguments about it. When Mepain and the rest of the knelders were around I remember it was rather tough to become a knexpert. Expectations were high. They were the ultimate judges and if you weren't good you just weren't good. After they left it was rather easy because we were left with few skilled people and mostly unskilled people. The slightest innovation impressed the people now. Overall expectation wasn't quite as high so people like me were considered easier. But it wasn't just my guns that made me a knexpert. I know people like IaC were not only liked for their awesome one of a kind projects but also for their personality. These are my opinions on what makes a knexpert. For all of you approaching knexperthood you should make sure you have all of these plus what others post below checked off.-First off they should have at least a couple of guns above 3.5* Best chance also is having at least one gun on the front page at one point-This isn't really important but I think one should have at least 4-5 instructables before being considered-They should have a wide range of weapons to prove skill in everything.-They should be modest. It's alright to brag about your weapons and other creations sometimes but you shouldn't be overdoing it nor should you demand attention for an innovative feature.-You should have a nice personality and good attitude. Never say a gun sucks unless it's a simple block trigger. Rating an instructable .5* otherwise is like giving someone the death sentence. You should be as constructive as possible.-You also should be well known to everyone. Everybody should have a feel for you and stuff like that. You wouldn't let a complete stranger take control of your. What else do you guys have? It's always the community who decides who's a knexpert so what are some of those things that the community settles on?Can I also say sorry to those that weren't considered a knexpert for the tournament? It didn't mean we didn't want to include everyone but the contest was made with the question of who was the greatest knexpert in mind. Please stop making tournaments based off of ours from now on as you don't have an excuse. I'm not stopping you from making you're own but oodalumps was right when he said tournaments here suck because there is one every other day thanks to the sore people.

motor as a generator + buck converter

Hi, for a school project, I have to make a wind-powered smartphone generator. So would I be able to use a 12v motor as the generator and a boost converter to convert the current to 5v? If so what kind of voltage will the motor produce? And what kind of diode will I need to prevent backwards current?  thanks.

Buck Converter for Parallel LED's

So I am trying to make a gift for someone that will include about 100 LEDs. These LEDs have a forward voltage of 1.8-2.2 ( I am going with 2V) and a max continuous forward current of 30mA. The LEDs: http://www.ebay.com/itm/50-10mm-10000mcd-LED-Lamp-Ultra-Bright-Red-Light-DIY-New-/180763201504?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash;=item2a16538fe0 Now, I want to be able to plug this sign into a wall so I have purchased an AC to DC power adapter that plugs in into a standard 120V AC outlet and supplies 12V with 2A of current. Here it is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261176168283 I know one way I could make this work is to have multiple series of 6 LEDs, as 6 LEDs in a series would then require 12V. However, it would make this project a LOT easier to have all the LEDs in a parallel circuit, so I can connect one whole side to the positive terminal and one whole side to the negative terminal. I wanted to know if I could do this: Plug the two wires (+ and -) going from the AC to DC adaptor into a Buck Converter set to 2V and wire it to all the LED's via one wire to a bus wire connected to all of the LEDs' negative terminals and same for the positive terminals.  The converter I was looking at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-DC-Buck-Converter-Adjustable-Step-Down-Breadboard-Power-Module-1-25V-36V-5A-/321355701600?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash;=item4ad24add60 Also, if I place the switch in between the AC to DC power adapter and the buck converter, the converter would only be on when the LED's are on, right? Lastly, would all the LEDs have the same brightness? I know at 2V with 100 LEDs the output would need to be about 3A. Is it okay given that the power adapter supplies 2A but at a higher voltage? As in does the converter convert the electricity to a lower voltage but a higher current?

Has anyone tried to make a solar light tube

I already have sky lights installed in an unfinished attic. I figure I could try lining some heating duct with some of those Mylar emergency blankets, butt it up against the skylight and then install a modified recessed light fixture in the ceiling. Connect the tube to the light fixture and it should work the same as the $300 units. I understand the effect the dome could have on collecting light, I do have some security camera domes, but don't want to go cutting holes in the roof unless it will work. ???anyone Thanks

Any ways to make a motorized Blind?

Any ways to make a motorized Blind? Saw someone on instructable made one, but without instructions. I read somewhere, someone mentioned to go SOMFY SYSTEMS INC and read about motor and cord take-up system that fits into the existing blind headrail. But SOMFY SYSTEMS INC mentioned the specs and not on how to do it. Now i am kind of lost. As a beginner, i am only at this stage. This is what i found.   www.distel.co.uk/DC_MOT_CON1.htm  I need to know what kind of DC motors with what voltage and power, can roll up a blind. Wonder will a 12V DC motor with 30rpm do the trick? Thanks!!!

How to Make a precision metal tube?

I recently bought a mini metal lathe. I'm making an airsoft gun on it, and i need to make a barrel. The particular gun I'm making is the ppsh-41 (for all of you guys that play cod5, you know what i'm talking about! and for those who don't know, it's pronounced peh-peh-sha), which requires a barrel length of 270mm (found from the blueprints). This is just under a foot, and about the max my lathe can handle (but mind you it can still handle it! ). For an airsoft barrel, the inner diameter should be 6.01mm (as BB's are 6 mm in diameter and you want a tight seal for max accuracy). How can i create a precision barrel like this? My plan for the most part is to take a brass tube with an ID slightly smaller than this, and put it on my metal lathe and then fine tune the inside. The only problem is is that i would need a 1 foot long (or i suppose 6 inch long if I go from both ends, but it might affect the bb where the 2 cuts meet at the center) cutting tool that's less than 5mm (leaving some room for error) in diameter, and won't flex pretty much at all along it's 1 foot length. Or does the flex part not matter because it would flex a consistent amount the whole way? Anyone ever do something like this before?

62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer

For the past two years I have been engaged in the wild world of print publication. I've seen fire and I've seen rain. I've seen... something something... that I thought would never end. And finally today I received the first copy of the book in the mail. After much hard work and anticipation, I present to you all 62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer. This is the greatest book about computer repurposing that I ever wrote! I recommend that everyone should go out and buy a dozen copies for everyone they ever met. **Update** We celebrated Randy's amazing achievement this afternoon with pizza, apple juice, home made cookies and ice cream.  Randy's mother was nice enough to coordinate a surprise visit from "Dame Edna" who sang us a song and brought Randy a sweet dancing robot and some nice balloons.

What buckpuck should I use with a 12 volt 5 amp/hour SLA battery with a Cree MC-E LED? Answered

First:  The Cree MC-E LED is rated at 350 milliamps but has a max voltage of 700 milliamps.  Does that mean I should get a 350 or 700 milliamp driver.   Two:  On ledsupply there are wired buckpucks with external dimming and potentiometers.  What is the difference between external dimming and what a potentiometer would do (lower the voltage and so dim the light)? Three:  On Deal Extreme it says driving voltage/current is 3.2V~3.5V, 350mA~700mA.  On ledsupply it says "12.8Vf - Typ. Forward Voltage @ 350mA and 13.6Vf - Typ. Forward Voltage @ 700mA?  What is the difference between driving and forward voltage/current?  What voltage and current comes out of the buckpuck? I am trying to make a bike light.  Thanks for the input -jacob
