Any tips on DIY salt pills / electrolyte replacement?

I was trying to figure out how to make inexpensive electrolyte pills. From my calculations, one could make the daily recommended equivalent (assuming no other food has said nutrients): Table Salt - 1 tsp (primarily: NaCl, gives sodium) Salt Substitute - 2 tsp (primarily: KCl, gives potassium) Milk of Magnesia - 1 tbsp (primarily: Mg(OH)2, gives magnesium) Antacid Tablets - 5 pills (primarily: CaCO3, gives calcium) This could be useful to endurance athletes and people who are practicing prolonged water-only fasting. Has any of you tried to make something like this before? What other essential nutrients would you include? Any recommendations for a phosphorus source?

How can I make an adjustable rev limiter for a MSD CD ignition? Answered

I have a MSD HVC cd box and coil. The MSD box uses pills to cut off the ignition if I exceed X amount of RPM's. To change it, I have to pop the hood and change pills. I think the pills are resistors.

What is this ODD item i found in my HOUSE?!!? Answered

I found this odd plastic bottle in my house.  It looks like our dog chewed one end of it. What is REALLY odd is the little military green PILL looking thing that was inside.  the pill thing i examined and found it has a clear-flap on top and a hollow inside.. like something was previously inside of it and is now gone.  This thing LOOKS to me like an RFID chip holder for use by a doctor to insert an RFID chip in someone, and then dispose of the empty holder in this case.  Maybe i am being paranoid, but this was IN MY HOUSE!!! it is a very odd thing to find in my house.  If anyone knows what this is, please let me know.  Thanks.

Any ideas on how to make a cat with arthritis feel better?

We have a cat that's about 13 years old and he's developed arthritis in his hips (as diagnosed by the vet.) We're obviously taking the vet's advice about medication, but since he hates taking pills I was wondering if anyone had other ways to ease his pain a bit. He's definitely not in constant pain - this was diagnosed very early and by accident (getting x-rayed for something else) - it seems to mostly be weather and fatigue related. He still plays like a kitten. I've seen commercials for things you mist into water dishes and stuff, does any of that work? What helps people with arthritis? I know he would be happier if I could come up with some non-pill ways to help him manage!

Battery pack rebuild

I read the instructable on rebuilding the 14.4v cordless tool battery pack and I've done it before with a decent Milwaukee battery. Now I have one that the thermistor is shot. It said 6k8j on it. It was a disc like an advil pill with two leads. Where would I find a replacement? I've looked on digikey.com but can't make heads or tails of it. I imagine you would want it to stop charging at 70 degrees c like a lot of r/c packs do.

Would like your thoughts on our development project

We have been developing a pill dispenser that is integrated with your smartphone. We used 3D printed parts and an RFduino microprocessor. This device would allow tracking of medications from the factory to the end user, eliminating couterfeit meds. In addition it would remind you when to take your meds, and notify your doctor or pharmacy via the internet. Watch the video and let me know what you think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yNBGXBSqLY

I was wondering about use of some barrels that I procured. Answered

They had Polyacrylic acid (CAS# 9003-01-4) in them, which was being used as a calcium dispersant/scale inhibitor.  I was wondering with a good rinse, wash and soak if they would be ok for use in a rainwater collection system that feeds a garden.  I discovered that that specific chemical is also used in all kinda of cosmetics, and in many of different pills (Musinex as an example) as a time release agent.  I figure if I clean them good, how bad could it be if it's something that you would ingest anyway?

It just seems like such a waste to just flush the little camera down the toilet

RIFD / WIFI locator?

Does anyone know a system or how to construct an RFID / WIFI based locator system? I would think that an old dual antenna wireless G router could be used in combination with an RFID tag.  So when the tag is moved to a new location within range of the router the location will be saved or displayed on the computer screen.   I thought that having a system like this would be great for keys, animals, phones, babies, pills, etc.   Here is one example application: Where are my keys?  - open the web browser and retrieve the approximate location where the keys were last moved.  They are in between the sofa cushions.

Need help about a Bluetooth speaker

I want to make a speaker with passive radiator . I'm thinking about using Beats pill xl speakers (replica) which are 2ohm and 15w. And the amplifier I'm gonna use is a PAM8610, output 4ohm 15w each channel. So is that amplifier will be suitable for the speaker? Need some help on that, and also as the speakers produce high excursion, the passive radiator which I'm gonna will be useful? (Measurements of speakers and passive radiator included on the pictures).Last question is the amplifier need 12v of power and i have a battery pack of 18650 cells(parallel) ,so if i use a step up booster like LM2596 ,will that be sufficient to provide the power to the amplifier? Thank you.

Seeking ideas/thoughts for fountain pen traveling inkwell

I own a certain fountain pen that fills in a special way and is best filled by using the traveling inkwell of the maker of that fountain pen-- by using that traveling inkwell, one can fill the pen with a maximum amount of ink-- filling by dipping the nib end into a bottle of ink doesn't let the max amount of ink to enter the pen. But that traveling inkwell produced by the pen maker is VERY EXPENSIVE. A guy apparently in Australia made his own and I'd like to make one. I have ideas but seek from you more thinking and ideas on this homemade traveling inkwell. [You can see the Australian's clever, simple traveling inkwell here: https://imgur.com/a/fkzTs ] I thought I'd use a straight-sided plastic pill bottle for the vessel that holds the ink and is the main part of the traveling inkwell. The bottle I'd probably use is ~ 28mm ID. I don't know what to use and don't know where to find the rubbery "plug" into which the section of the fountain pen is pushed before inverting the plastic bottle to fill the pen. [The section of a fountain pen is the part that one holds when writing with the pen. It's also called the grip and is the area immediately behind the nib and feed.] All I have so far: - 8.5 cm tall x ~ 28 mm ID straight-sided plastic pill bottle which has near-the-top internal threads for the cap that can also be screwed onto external threads. [I'd use the internal threads for the cap.] Requirements which have come to mind-- tell me if these are sound or should be re-considered: - Whatever rubbery one-hole plug is used, it has to yield a bit to the fountain pen section (which is 11 mm OD) when the section is pushed into the one-hole plug-- the plug hole I suppose should be ~ 9.5 mm to 10 mm. The rubbery material around the hole has to grip the section so ink leakage doesn't happen during filling. - The one-hole plug should not move downward into the ink when the fountain pen section is pushed into the one-hole plug. Maybe the plug would have to be glued in place so it doesn't move? What glue or bonding substance if that's best? - The one-hole plug would be set/glued/bonded immediately below the near-the-top internal threads of the pill bottle. - I suppose the height of the one-hole plug would be ~ 1 cm to 2 cm. - I suppose a straight-side plug vs. a tapered one would be the ideal (but a straight-sided one would, I suppose, have to be glued/bonded in place so it doesn't slip or move). - Ink leakage shouldn't occur when the section is pushed into the one-hole plug and the bottle then inverted for filling. If leakage occurs, then ink runs down my hand and arm during filling. - What kind of not-hard-but-yielding-a-bit "plug" or maybe a stopper is best and where do I find just one? [Fountain pen inks are mainly water with dyes and maybe some additives in them.] Thanks for your attention to this posting!

Is a DIY easy(wish) automated dispenser on a timer possible?

Hi all! My 11yo son is determined to make an automated medicine dispenser that releases medication at set times as his science project for school. (Inspired by 2 of his grandparents who are doing it tough with cancer). His idea is to basically automate the pill dispense so that the carer can load up each dose, and it will be released at the predetermined time, hopefully with an alarm or similar, to notify the patient... It's a intermediate school science project so doesn't need to be commercially ready, but he's struggling to work out how to automate it and attach the timer/clock function. Any ideas? I'm decidedly more mechanically minded than his dad, but that's not saying much, and whilst our son is definitely mechanically minded, up to this point he hasn't really had any circuitry etc or motors to work with, beyond lego technics etc. Is anyone able to point me in the direction of what might do the trick, without breaking the bank? Thanks so much!!

My Dilemma

I've been meaning to tell the community this for a while, but I might as well do it now... I have ADHD and Bi-Polar Disorder. My mom and I decided that I should try and get off one of the pills I have been taking for years: the one to combat Bi-Polar Disorder. We realized today that it is better for me to get back on them; I haven't been taking it for two days. I'm not trying to start a sob story, but I'm just saying this to explain my weird behavior. I'm sorry if I've weirded you guys out, but I haven't been thinking straight and I'm kind of going through mood swings. Don't be alarmed, it's nothing too serious, but it is definitely enough to make me seem irritable and strange. I still do stand by the things I said in the 'war' that seems to be going on at Red's instructable about the classic guns; or at least most of them; I may have to go back and make sure I know what I said.  I've probably said some things I may regret, and I'm very sorry. Sorry for all that. :I -DOK

What is the best multivitamin for men to take?

Hello community, I am banging my head against the wall trying to figure out which men's multivitamin is the best for me to take. The more research I do , the more complicated things get. I read that multivitamins in pill form are the worst because of extremely low absorption rates (As low as 10%). Do capsules offer a high enough absorption rate or should I go with a liquid or spray? Spray multivitamins seem to be all the rage right now claiming an absorption rate of 90% and higher. The next problem is finding something with natural ingredients. I keep hearing about how synthetic vitamins can cause more harm to your body than good. One article said that natural vitamin A fights cancer while synthetic vitamin A isn't even suitable for a dog. To complicate things further, there are 20 other similar factors that make finding the best multivitamin very difficult. How do I tell if all the ingredients are in natural form? I just want to make sure that I am taking something that is healthy and good for my body. Does anyone have a good multivitamin recommendation for men (age 32)?

what is this electronic part called? Answered

Hello, I got a cheap alarm from the dollar tree store, is one of those for windows and doors that one part goes on the door or window and other part to the frame, when you open door/window the alarm goes off. I found a electronic part inside that I want to use in a project but I don't know what is called, when I unsoldered it, it looked like a capacitor but at the bottom has 4 straight terminals, each terminal was connected to the coil. I pilled the coating and the inside looks like a coil, by now you can tell I don't know much of electronics and english is not my first language, but I am trying to learn. I just want to know the name of it so I can buy some more for my projects. I put some pictures of what it looks like. In the side picture you can see the terminals but I bent them trying to unsolder them. in the picture where you can see it from the bottom the red arrow points at the 1 of the straight terminals and the blue arrow points at glue that is located at the bottom of the terminal. and in the third picture you see it from the side but I removed the plastic that was covering it and you can see that each of the terminals are connected to the coil. Thank you for your help

Instructables bugs and issues? Is it just me? Answered

Is it just me, or has their been a spike in the number of spam BS about "age defying creme"  and "unique way to get muscles", etc etc, etc. on the question page? At times I would see like 3-7 random posts like that, and have gone through and flagged them all as spam. Sure enough they have disappeared later that day.  Currently, there are 5 SPAM POSTS I have found in nearly consecutive order! (I did not link these to avoid getting flaged as spam myself, and I flagged all of them already so they may have rotted already. Who knows.) https://www.instructables.com/answers/httptestoxlreviewnetalpha-limit-/ https://www.instructables.com/answers/Unique-Way-to-Get-Muscles/ https://www.instructables.com/answers/weightloss-pills-only-likely-to-your-physician/ https://www.instructables.com/answers/concentrating-on-treating-them-within-your-skin/ https://www.instructables.com/answers/Important-Skin-Advantages-Of-Aloe-Vera-Gel/ That's just ridiculous! Also, recently, instructables decided to stop sending me email updates on comments on my instructables, and I have checked my settings for emails from instructables, as well as spam. I am not sure if the problem still persists, but I have had to actually load up my previos question on my DSL not working properly to see answers. (I suspected something was up because after a day, no email was received that I got answers. I knew that was not likely. Sure enough when I went to some of my published 'ables, I saw comments that I did not receive as email updates! Wats up with dat?) If anyone else is having similar issues, I will probably find way to file bug report with this info. My guess is that the security for making new accounts is compromised (like captchas not working properly) and that the 'ables robot server is not working properly. No clue. What I do know is that I will be refreshing this page periodically to see new replies to test if emails work or not. I will post in the comments if they do.

What is wrong with my girlfriends ear?

Me and her went to go eat lunch/dinner at her dads. On the way there, she said her ear was hurting and it was red (hour: 1). (hour 2) now her ear was throbbing and she was basically crying when I touch it and it was starting to look like a burn. I was thinking that it was from her curling iron, but she said she didn't touch it. (hour 4) after lunch/dinner we go to her moms house to hang out and her ear is still throbbing and has a white burn like mark on her ear cartilage. (hour 4.5) she puts ice on it and still hurts, after about 10 minutes after the ice, it started to ooze out some green pus like discharge, yes from her cartilage. she doesn't have it pierced. it seriously looks like it could had been from a curling iron except for the discharge... so she takes some pain killers and tries to go to bed. (hour 5) me and her mom take her to go to the hospital to see what is going on when she it was hurting so bad she was literally crying.(hour 5.25 - 7) we wait in the lobby to be checked out by the doctor, in that time, she was in so much pain that she barely talked. and if we did, she didn't want to talk about her ear with the discharge still oozing out.(hour 7.5) doctor evaluated that its an infection of some sort but has never seen it, so he prescribes her some antibiotic pills and drops. the drops to be put directly onto the sore.(hour 15) in the morning she shows me her ear and it was kinda dried up, but still pretty liquidy. it looked the same for about the rest of the day. she said that it wasn't hurting as near as bad and i could actually touch it and not have her cry or wince in pain. What could this be? and how and why did it happen in less than 12 hours? could it be from the curling iron but just a weird reaction to heat? I will see if I can get some pictures from her to post. but this is what she said hopefully about the ones on her phone (i took some with her ipod) "I deleted them because they are gross."... understandable because they were... very...
