OK to post?

I made a suppressor/ recoil compensator for a Umarex Steel Storm bb repeater pistol and would like to post the how to. Is that OK? It is relatively esy to build, and being made from household and hardware store parts, it is very inexpensive as well.

Is it ok to post it?

Hey Instructables! So a couple of weeks ago I finished a year long project, automating my room. The project is completly modular so if any piece burns out or fails you can quickly switch it, the project includes automatic lighting controlled via a PIR sensor, an LM35 controlled fan, a miniature green house controlled by another LM35 and it displays the info about humidity and temp, through a 16x2 lcd and DHT11, a combination lock for my door via a keypad, a infrared control that can turn on or of my desk lamp, alarm clock, room lights, solder station and has the function to turn the whole system on or off, it also includes a modified Sony alarm clock, that has a TDA2040 amplifier with aux in and its connected to some speakers around my room. I have all the eagle files and ready to print pdf´s. Everything is controlled by 2 DIY arduinos. I made most of the modules for the sensor array but a couple of the controll modules were made using already existing files on fritzing, and the DIY-Duino Should I redesign this modules and controller board before uploading, or will crediting the authors of this parts will do?

OK Go's new video has a fantastic Rube Goldberg device

 OK Go has always been keen on including some well thought out visuals in its videos. Their latest is no different. The whole thing is one long Rube Goldberg device. Unlike most videos like this where the camera patiently tracks all the action, the sequence is pretty hectic so pay attention. Or watch it more than once. I'm sure the band won't mind.

Is my circuit OK?

I'm building a circuit that uses two 5V inputs and one 24V input. I drew a schematic that I think will work but I want to make sure it does before building it. Can somebody tell me if I'll really get 5V and 24V?

Is Styrofoam now "OK" to use? Answered

Is the American attention span that short?  Just because Circle K promotes a "no sweat cup" as a connivence, does that mean we NEED to use Styrofoam? Is OK to do so because this is a "new type" of Styrofoam? As usual, I'm confused!

arduno Uno connect to laptop USB OK,connect to external power not OK?

Hi,All I am experiencing a headache now.I connected arduino UNO and a serial relay board,then i uploaded my sketch to it,the problem is once i plug it into laptop.the project works,but once i use a external power,say,12V 1A,or 5v 1A.or lipo batteries(5v1A and 12V1A)to power jack of UNO,it won't behaved the way as i expected.I haven't tried 9V 1A. i think the sketch is in the chip,So it should work without the presence of serial signal,i used 'softwareserial.h'library to enable virtual serial of UNO.and made PIN10 and PIN11 as serial PINS.i don't know where the problem lies.

OK, Let's clarify some things....

1) OK, I will clarify this after it confused me for so much time. For those of you who didn't know,Eric and canida are marriedI tell you this to help you avoid all the stuff I went through. I saw a lot of things that pointed towards this fact, but nothing actually confirmed it. I didn't have the courage to ask here, if I was wrong, the embarrassment would be too much.... So there.What happened to Stasterisk?Star Simpson is a girl that strapped a fake bomb to her and tried to go through an airport. It was a circuit board with play doh attached to it in certain spots. She is currently a student at MIT, which explains the website url. So if you want to get more of an idea of who this Star Simpson girl is. Check outthis pageAnd this ibles postMy name is BryantAlthough, I think Gorillazmiko made that quite clear. Get over it.

Will my metal welder work ok?

I'm totally new to metal welding but am going to give it a try. My oven/range has a power outlet that reads on it: 125/250V, 50Amps. It has four prongs, three vertically oriented flat ones aligned as a triangle with the center one lower than the other two, and a fourth one top center that's round. My breaker box shows a 50Amp breaker for it. The welder says it's a MIG 170, 240V AC, 20Amps,single phase, 60Hz (Harbor Freight). I think the power I have is actually 220V but I'm not sure. If I do only have 220V will the welder only draw as much voltage as is asked by it - that is, if I only crank it up, say 3/4 of the way, will it draw less than its rated 240V? Or is that 240V just a maximum rating and it should run ok with 220V? It would seem odd that they would sell a welder that won't work for the power their customers would have by default without modifications. Also, where can I get a double socket for that outlet with one having an extension so I don't have to pull out my oven every time I need to weld something? Thank you. Bretina

Ok, Other People Need to Enter!

 Other poeple need to enter this contest! Part of me doesn't want the competition, but the other part realizes that without competition, there can be no victory. If you are reading this, I'm looking at you to submit a supercalifragilisticexpialidocius Instructable to this contest! As Theodore Roosevelt said, "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred be dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error o shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cols and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." Now go and make a great Instructable!

Ok my dad messed up kinda big this time... (car problems)? Answered

Well basically my dad tried to change the oil in the car... (new-ish Nissan versa) and he accidentally poured oil into the wrong thing and filled the already full transmission... he figured out and removed some and poured the correct amount in... but that was after he took it for a spin... and then he over filled the engine oil thing and now it doesn't register any oil pressure at all... (he removed the excess)... what did he mess up or break and how hard is it to replace and how much would it be to get the part/take it to some place...

5V Nextel Phone Charger OK to use?

I have a phone charger for my Nextel phone. On one end is a wallwart for a standard US outlet. The other end is the proprietary Nextel connector. The phone connector end was unfortunately broken, but fortunately I have a spare :) I believe the rest of the rig works fine, and rather than throwing it out, I took a look and it was rated 5V @ 800mA DC. AFAIK, 5V is what most USB devices work off of. Would it be suitable if I snipped the end off and rewired other connectors on to this and used it as a charger for other devices? Thanks in advance!

Is it ok to use two ground pins in arduino?

I'm utilizing two power sources... the one that comes from arduino (5V) and one 12V transformer to power my stepper motor. In the 5V pins I am powering up LCD display and my water level indicator. Now, I utilized two ground pins for the two voltages (5v arduino, 12V) . At first I only used one ground for the two voltages because they need to be in a common ground but voltages are jamming together (i think) because every time 12v is on , the lcd (which is connected to 5V) isn't functioning well. So, I decided to use another ground from the arduino and connect it to my 12V source so it could still have a reference point to my 5V supply. It worked , the LCD functions well but another problem has arised. The rectifier diodes in my 12V transformer gets really hot. What could be the problem? . Does it have anything to do with using two separate ground pins in my arduino?

Comments Making Other Comments Replies, is This OK?

Sorry if this is in the wrong area, but the category was not really there (bugs), so I put it here.  When ever I create a comment that is a reply to another comment, that first comment turns into a reply as well. Confused? Let me explain What it should be: (Comment Irrelevant): BLA BLA (Commenter1): OH that was G!              (Commenter2[Me]): YAH, Right? What Happens: (Comment Irrelevant): BLA BLA               (Commenter1): OH that was G!                                  (Commenter2[Me]): YAH, Right? See what I mean? Any reply I make indents the original comment, making it look like another comment is being replied to when it is not, this also happens when there is no (Comment Irrelevant) comment! This also seems to happen on other computers, Macs at work and my home PC. Both of which are totally separate of each other. Is it a problem well known problem with instructables, or is it just a glitch with my profile. I see a comic book super hero in the making: Secret admin controls, given to an random user. He now has the power to make people reply to other people, and he is: Secret Admin Who Randomly Got Powers to Make People Reply Man!
