Mini Cannon

This video by YouTube user 43287633 shows off the abilities of a tiny custom cannon. Check it out to see this thing take on soda cans, glasses, balloons, and more. Unfortunately, there's no other information about this one, but I do love the fact that the firing range is the creator's own desk. That's some serious confidence in the reliability of the cannon. via Neatorama

mini flashlight?

I am trying to make a mini flashlight, and it wont work.  any ideas, I have a 3mm high brightness led light, 2 3volt coin batteries and the connection wire.  Can any one explain specifically what i need, or have to do?  I'm just not getting it to work and also when the bright led lights up it only light up with an amber yellow glow for seconds before going out, upon which I have to give it a second for that to happen again...as if it needs to charge first.  What am I doing wrong? Thanks Matt

Mini Instructable?

I know Instructables likes Instructables to have several steps. I have a little project that really doesn't have enough to split into steps. It's more of a cool - you can do this - with an example. Is a single page Instructable ok? It's photo related, but craft would probably like it too. Should I just post it in those forums? Seriously - shorter than this post but with an image included. hahaha

Mini-generator? Answered

I was sitting here today wondering how could an electric car with a gas generator possibly be useful, then it hit me.  I could add a gas powered generator to an RC car to give it the ability to fill up and run again without the need to charge a battery.  The idea was brilliant so I went out looking for a platform to use.  I decided on a traxxas E-Maxx.  It has a lot of space to build on, and it is a pretty awesome truck.  I decided I would leave the batteries in the equation and they would be sustained by the generator.  Now, what on EARTH DO I USE FOR A GENERATOR that doesn't cost as much as the motor itself.

Mini truss

G'day people Time to show me if Instructables lives up to its name I need to come up with a very easy and fast way to build a minituare truss (picture of truss attached). It basically consists of two aluminum face sheets, that sandwich a network of drinking straws. The drinking straws are arranged in such a way that they form little pyramids (take a look at the picture for it to be clearer). My issue is that I'm working with very tight dimensional restrictions. The 2nd picture shows the dimensions of the top and bottom face sheets. The drinking straws are 3mm in diameter. The edges of the "pyramids"  must form an angle of 30, 45 or 60 degrees with the horizontal plane. The current method I'm using to make these trusses takes about 5 - 6 hours.  I need something that could take less than an hour. Also, the straws are glued to the face sheets with a small glue gun, but this leaves a lot of "glue residue" around the straws. If you have any better ideas.... what say you?!! edit: I forgot to mention that money is not really much of an issue, so if you suggest I need some equipment or something of the sort that would be rather expensive, I will seriosuly consider it!

Shop-a-Mini Contest

As Lira would say, I haz skillz. I do not, though, have any serious photo-editing skillz. So, it should be easy to impress me and earn a patch in my new contest; apply your skillz in Photoshop, Gimp or even Paint to join a Mini with anything else. Caitlinsdad's hybrid of my Mini and Thunderbird 2 (below) was the inspiration for this contest, so he has already won a patch. You can join the Mini with anything you like - animal, mineral, vegetable, even celebrity. You must use a Classic Mini (any model), not the BMW version. To win a patch, your image must impress, both with creativity and the level of skill exhibited. The judge's decision is final and potentially rather arbitrary. Ready... steady... shop! EDIT: This contest ends June 30th, midnight GMT

I just got some soldering paste and I need to keep it cool. The temperature has to be above freezing, but still cool. Currently I'm keeping it in my fridge, but I don't want to keep it there once I break the seal (for safety reasons). I can't do that one mod using the 12 volt camper cooler, I don't have a camper cooler. I can't afford a mini-fridge. Just seeing if anyone here has any ideas. If nobody has any then I'm going to buy this USB micro fridge wwhich will keep it cool for $15.

Really Mini Shocker?

Hi all, I am looking to build a really miniature, low-output shocker device and I've come a bit stuck. The instructables that I have see here all seem to dispense shocks of about 400v and I think they are too painful for what I have in mind, though I don't really know (if you know better then please tell me, you may make my life easier :) ). I'm looking for the device to be able to deliver no more than a distinct nip, and be about the size of a Cr2032 cell. I also would like a miniaturised power source like that. Can anyone tell me if this is possible and point me in the right direction as to parts and where to get them (I'd like to salvage as many parts as possible because I'm on a tight budget). Thanks in advance to all who reply.

mini fridge upgrade

Hello everyone, I found a Thermoelectric mini fridge at the dump a couple weeks ago and so far I have been disappointed with how cold it gets so I figured I would replace the peltier chip with a higher wattage one, the original ran on only 12v with 60watts but the new one uses 16v and 192 watts, so unfortunately when I switched the chips the fridge makes a clicking noise presumably from drawing to much current. the questions I have are, how can I build or cheaply obtain a variable (it would be nice to control power) 16v 12amp power supply or modify the existing board to output more power, would it pose a problem to run the fridge with no load attached to the previous 12v supply, and is it necessary to replace the fans with higher power ones? any other advise would be much appreciated, thanks in advance :)

Mini-book pin's

Okay, so I'm trying to make some mini-book pin's. Well actually I'm not sure it's actually called "pin's" in English... it's a thing that was popular in the 90's (in France at least), a decorative object with a pin on the back and a kind of clip to attach it to clothing. I've found a picture on wikipedia, but it's really, really bad quality and I'm not sure it will help : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/Pins01.JPGSooo... since I ruined my girlfriend's one when I put it with her clothes in the washing machine, I thought I could try to do one my self... shouldn't be too hard, heh ?But my problem is : I have some thin paper for the pages, and nice leather-like paper for the cover, but I have no idea how to glue the pages together, because the mini-book needs to be openable like a real book. I tried some "2 coat rubber cement" I got here but it just doesn't work... I don't have a glue gun but I think maybe it is the kind of thing I need. You see, the glue has to be solid enough to form the spine of the book.Anyone has an idea about what I should do (I hope I've been clear enough) ?One problem I'm thinking of, too, is that the book has to stay well closed unless you really want to open it.Anyway, thanks

Problem is, whenever I do what the instructions tell me in order to finalize it, a problem occurs. The "disc Finalize" option is unavailable.

Mini fuse box question?

My headlights have stopped working - main beam is OK, sidelights are OK, normal dipped beam is out. Since both sides went at once, I'm assuming its a fuse. However, there are 24 fuses in the fuse box, none labelled with what they serve, and the Haynes manual simply gives them numbers. I'm being lazy - to save me going through them one by one, does anybody know which fuse is the one I need to change? (Rover Mini Mayfair, 1275cc, 1995)
