Multi-function, multi-materials workshops?

I'm on a small rural acreage. My shop situation is that I’ve got two separate, fairly compact spaces for working with wood (or general “handyman” repairs for the home) and for working with metal (cutting, welding, grinding, etc). My metal area is where I also often work with small-engine equipment. These spaces are located inconveniently, separated by nearly 100 feet! I think about how I might like to combine functions under one roof. So I’m posting to try to coax some of you people to show me how you may have done this. Or examples you've found on the internet (give URLs). Obviously, no one wants to get sawdust into an area where torch flames or electric-welding sparks could cause a hazard. And you wouldn’t want to get engine lubricants or solvents mixed up with wood projects. Discussion and description are fine, but I’d really like to see pictures or floor-plan diagrams if possible.  I need examples that represent modest investment, as I could probably only afford to build an enclosure of about 16x24 ft, with a bay door. ( Yes - could probably learn something from shops that are somewhat bigger than this.) In grandfather's day, farm shops were usually multi-purpose. You know, for "bench carpentry", and maintaining or servicing the truck or tractor, welding bailer components back together, etc. Often had a tablesaw, maybe a bandsaw - besides the hoist, welders, socket wrenches. I suppose sometimes a fire did occur in one shop or another, but probably not often.  I'd like to see some more modern versions, rather than just the "version" I have in terms of vague memories. Thanks.

The only thing is I need it with multiple circuits. I don't know how to explain it, but I think I need something different. More like 4 pins instead of 3.

Multi-Source power?

Hello all, i'm thinking on a very easy way to support more than 1 power source for my electronic circuits.Below you can see the schematic. It's very basic. Each source have a rectifier diode to disallow inverse currents for each one.When both sources have the same output, both diodes will work and the output is Vin - 0.7When one of them is bigger than the other (the case on the schematic), diode on smaller source will open circuit, and the bigger is the one to be used. The output will be 7-0.7 = 6.3V.The problem i found is when there is little difference, this is less than 0.7V.This way both diodes will work but there is a difference on voltage between the two sources.Do you think that having a small resistance like 10Ohm and high dissipation in one line will solve this?Do you think this design is valid?thanks for the help in advance.

Multi Part Instructable?

I am making an instructable for building a gas powered bicycle from scratch, but in it's current form, it is shaping up to have literally hundreds of steps. Is there a way to break it down into smaller sections in such a way that I could still enter it in a contest as one instructable? I was thinking perhaps I make an instructable that consists of only the introduction, followed by quick overviews of each part, with accompanying links to other instructables which are dedicated to each part. The way I am planning to do it, I would have one instructable for how to modify the engine, another one for choosing a good bicycle to motorize, another for mounting the engine to the bike frame, another for calculating gear ratios and setting up gear reduction, another for rebuilding the rear wheel, another for throttle linkage, another for exhaust systems, gas tanks, and air filters, another for all the other misc stuff you have to do, and finally one more for how to ride safely. So that would be 9 parts to the instructable, each their own instructable, which even split into 8 would make quite large instructables. Then the "parent" instructable, which would be the one I enter in contests, or which would be featured if it's worthy, would look like this: How to build a 4hp motorized bicycle from scratch! Blah blah blah introduction, nice pictures of finished bicycles, etc. Step 1 short overview of specific part, ex modifying the engine, then link to another instructable providing detailed instructions on exactly how to modify the engine Step 2 same format as step 1 and so on until all the parts are covered. This would also be helpful to me because I could better organize the hundreds of images I have for this instructable, right now it is a huge pain in the butt to find any specific image, so much so that it's easier to upload them one by one as I need them just so I can keep track. So, would this format be ok?

Multi language instructables

Hello, As a french user, there is a feature that I feel is lacking on the website: the possibility to translate an instructable to make it available for people who do not speak english. There have been a few times here where an Instructable was the perfect how-to to share with people in my local maker community, but most french people are not fluent in english. So I had to translate it for them. Furthermore, I would be happy to translate some useful instructables here and there when needed around me. But this work is not shared to the community of Instructables and makers that could benefit from it, only to a few people around me. Could there be a functionality on the website so that an instructable could be translated and made available in multiple languages ? I do not mean that everything should be translated in every language and all, but if someone translates something, then it can be made available to other people speaking that language. Well, I hope you consider it, My 2 cents, pol / littlevache

I am not really making it now, but its more of preparing the steps so when I do start, I will be able to complete it and be aware of problems that may occur. 1) when the coil is fed with electricity, what is stopping it from shooting right back at you? 2) how much voltage should the coils be using (aka what type of capacitor should I use) 3) I have heard that capacitors will sometimes have left over charge in them, how would I "dump" the excess. 4) Using multiple stages, should all the coils be turned on at once or in succession 5) should the wire coiling the tube be uninsulated? Here is a diagram of my current understanding of a coilgun. Let me know if it is not correct. Power Supply (battery) --> switch --> capacitor -->wire that wraps around the pipe, creating a magnetic field --> magnetic field pulls projectile into the tube and launches it.

1 Arduino + 3 or 4 LM35s?

I am a total beginner, having logged about one hour here (the last hour). Does this sound OK for a first Arduino project? I want to sample and log the temperature outside at the surface and at depth for a total of 4 readings to a depth of around 50cm (20"). The reason is to consider if I should provide my daughter's pet rabbits with an underground burrow as relief against the next heat wave. It seems a nicer option than running a swamp cooler all day. Though I suppose I could use an Arduino + LM35 to turn on and off the swamp cooler :) It looks like I can do it with 4 x LM35s, an Arduino One, some sort of data storage, a 9v battery and a bread board. Any recommendations for if I should use WiFi or an SD card for storage? My guess is the SD card is simpler to programme and maybe less of a battery drain. It seems I just need to hook up the data out of the LM35s to the analogue ports, then loop over the inputs and write the outputs to a file somewhere. And calibration too. Any pointers on how to turn the LM35s into probes that can be buried in the ground? I was thinking I could bind all the probes onto a dowel, dig a hole and bury it. How to extend the LM35 pin outs? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I've been thinking and I've designed my own model based on a webcam with a microphone. The picture says it all acctually. Do you guys think it would work, or is the cameras angle of view to small to have the height I want? Does my Size and shape seems resonable or do I need to rethink. And about the LED's. It would be cool with red light coming up from inside it. And it would match quite good with the oak frame (have lots of Oak-pieces I can't use for something so I will make a nice frame out of it), and in the dark it would be very cool with light coming up from inside it, but that would disturb the camera by removing the dark spots created by your fingers, or am I wrong? Maybe I could put them discretely in the four corners above the table itself. AnywayWhat do you think. Possible or not?It works with a little height, but I will strip down the camera so that I can put the lens really low and not put in the whole camera.To read the text on the picture you have to view them in full size.

My wife and I charge our tablets and phones in a central location.  There are so many wall warts and not enough outlets!  I would like to have a single USB type of power supply that can charge at least 6 devices at the same time.  Each port should be able to supply 5 volts DC at 1 amp or better.  I've purchased two different 4 port wall warts and they just don't have the juice to get the job done.  Any ideas?

multi voltage project for sons project

Hello I was wondering if someone can help us. We are building a school project that has 3 different lights on it. what we are trying to do is have everything work off one 12 volt plug in transformer. What we have is a 12 volt dc transformer for 2 led drivers and a 6 volt ac transformer for a turning table. We want it all to work off one plug-in style transformer. How can we do this and conceal the components in the base. Please help us. Thanks for any help.
