I've heard that pop/beer tabs are higher grade aluminum than the cans? Answered

Is it true?  If so, can they be separated and recycled at a higher value than the cans?

how to flatten a soda can?

I have some monster energy drink cans I want to flatten for the top of a table. Kinda like one of those beer cap resin tables if that makes any sense. Anyways, I have cut off the ends of a few soda cans but I cant get them to stay flat. I'll listen to any and all ideas, I'm not afraid to buy some tools. Oh yeah I want to be able to use the design of the cans, most of them are discontinued or rare. Hope I'm not confusing anyone. Have a great day!!

Get rid of the SIGN UP pop-up

Nowadays many sites do this very horrible thing that is really annoying to the point I just want to throw my monitor out the window or beat the crap out of my monitor with my keyboard over and over. When you go to a site, like this one, you are reading the article, instructable, watching a video (or whatever), and few seconds to 2 mins later, the screen dims and a pop-up comes out saying "do you want to sign up?" Other sites might say "do you want to subscribe?" "Click "like" if you like this article" This is one of those things that's really fking annoying. If people want to sign up, they can click on it in the top right corner. The sheer amount of sites that do this, that forces you to read their pop-up, making you close it everytime. The only thing I am interested in is the instructable/artcle I was currently reading... This site would be decent if you removed it.

is there a way to make a pop-up cd rack that uses 12v and a motor? Answered

I want to build a few pop-up parts for my pc station. One of them being a CD rack that stacks the CD's vertially and can, at a push of a button, raise itself up through the hole in my pc station, and back down again (see the pop-up kitchen spice rack). I know this is probably achievable given that there are many motors that will run on 12v, but i cannot work out how it would lift or how it would stop at the maximum height before it comes up against the edge of the desk etc.

I want to make the best use of this screen by putting some "stats" (for lack of a better word) on the screen.

Stopping an oxyacetylene weld from popping? Answered

I'm pretty sure that anyone who has oxyacytelene welded has had a weld "pop" when they jab the rod into it or overheat the molten metal. I've been doing some oxyacetylene welding and I'm working on my lap joints. When I was simply laying a straight line on weld across a plate I never made the weld "pop." Now every time I pick up a torch and try a lap joint it goes "POP!" and flings molten metal everywhere. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone shed some light on my problem? Any help is much appreciated!

Does anyone have a plan for a motor driven aluminum can crusher that can crush multiple cans at once?

My family collects a large amount of aluminum pop cans each year and takes them in for scrap every few months. The problem is that it takes so long to crush them all by foot. I've done some looking and have seen can crushers (mostly mechanical) that crush one at a time, but I'm looking for something with a electric motor and some sort of small hopper where I could dump cans in to be crushed and dropped into a bucket. Any ideas? Thanks!

Auto body help

I need some help here and I hope that there is someone that can answer this question. I have a 2003 Toyota Tacoma and I want to add some bigger fender flairs on the truck, I want to use what are called pop rivet nuts. The pop rivet nuts are inserted just like a pop rivet but it has a nut on the back of it so that you can use a small bolt. The screws that came with the fender flairs are called self tapping screws and they seem to wallow out after time. I need to know what the thickness of a typical fender is so that I can order the right pop rivet nuts. The pop rivet nuts only come in sizes for gauge metal. Does anyone know what gauge a finder is so that I can order the right pop rivet nuts. Thanks for any input.

Create awareness of a particular diet choice...

What would make the world a better place...depends how you define world, and your benchmark for what distinguishes better place.  This contest suggests things that would improve home, neighborhood, society, and planet.  I have an idea that would improve all of the above! Health: Personal back story:  Growing up I drank a lot of pop.  It was not uncommon to polish of a 12 pack of soda in a day or two, and this would happen regularly.  For the last fifteen years I've consumed at least 2-4 liters of cola per week, if you average it out (probably closer to ten).  Thats a conservative 2000 litres of cola.  At ~120 grams of sugar per Liter, that works out to a whopping 240 KILOGRAMS of sugar.  Now, were my parents terrible?  I don't think so - the knowledge wasnt out there that us kids were being fed a high sugar highly addictive substance that really messed with our bodies.   I can personally account that I had a terrible sleep schedule growing up, and I can directly attribute it to sugar/caffeine.  Unlike many friends I know I managed to stay skinny and somewhat 'in shape' through hyperactivity.  The artificial insomnia destroyed my school scores - as I spent a lot of time very tired in class, not paying attention - and was even suggested to go on medications to 'fix' how 'weird' I acted.  Most all of my child teeth and adult teeth are full of fillings where I had cavities - and I can't have cold food touch my teeth because I have almost no enamel left.  Consider now the direct economic cost of this:  At an average of a dollar per liter - multiply by the number of 'addicted' heavy user kids out there, and you have yourself a staggering amount.  I'm not alone.  I know lots of friends with similar stories - some less fortunate with serious health problems like diabetes and bariatric problems.  Economy: The high fructose corn syrup industry has halfway destroyed the cane sugar market in many third world countries.  Soda machines all over, often in schools, rape the pocketbooks of young persons for a product they don't need.  Pretend for a moment you are a drug dealer gang boss.  Now imagine you can put a legal salesman in most every school, "free".  I don't need to explain the rest of the story. Society:  Soft drinks are not 'evil' - they are an enjoyable vice that when taken in reasonable quantity aren't that harmful.  Therein lies the problem - they are marketed as the be-all and end-all to be happy, thirst quenched, and popular.  Couple this with the fact that they contain high levels of two of the most addictive legal substances out there:  Caffeine and glucose.  Our nervous systems don't stand a chance. Environment:  Frankly you'd be surprised how much carbon dioxide comes from the soda industry - that fizz goes somewhere after you *kssshk* open the can.  High fructose corn syrup is bad not just for your body but for the environment.  Some areas are very good at recycling, but still others are brutally abysmal at their three R's.  Many COUNTRIES in fact don't recycle at all.  That's a LOT of plastic and aluminum ending up in the environment, to be there long after we are gone. My proposal:  What I want to see is awareness campaigns of the health risks of being a heavy user - in conjunction with warning labels similar to what the tobacco industry has on their products.  I want to see their huge profits going into the community (like in this contest - more of it!).  Make companies accountable for their products. photo courtesy freefoto.com

Can I delete some of my instructables?

So when I started posting 'ibles, I was a little too excited and posted WAYYYY to many way too fast. A lot of them are quite lame, cause I posted anything and everything. I was a total contest fan, (I still am now, but not quite as bad) and whenever a contest would pop up I would quickly make an 'ible as fast as I could to put in it. None of them won, ofc, and now I want to delete some of my noobie past, but I can't! I tried to delete some of them, but since I entered them into a contest, they don't delete! Is there any possible way to delete some of my embarrassing 'ibles?

How do you make a pop up with a wire edge, like a sun guard for the front car window?

Hi, I want to make a pop up sail for my kayak.  I see that there is some type of metal edge that is sewn in.   I can't even figure out what to look up in Google.  It is a simple project.... for my mother-in-law to sew.  I just can't figure out what wire to buy and do I need to weld the ends together. Thank you to anyone who can give me some advice on this.
