Drinking water safe foot pump?

I am trying to make a dishwashing station for camping, and I havn't been able to find a design for a pump that seems food-safe. The designs that I have found for DIY use petrolium jelly for a seal. I would prefer a foot pump, as most of the people that I camp with are young, short, or both. :-) Help for the DIY and physics impaired, please.

Earthquake safe shelf

I have a place on my wall where I would like to hang a shelf and put a bunch of wine bottles and a picture or two. But I want it to be safe as can be.  So I'm thinking it needs a lip or something so that  if i knock it or something the bottles won't fall. I've googled it and can't find anything. If anyone has any ideas of how I can go about this I would greatly appreciate it.

Salt and water etching

I posted it as I tough it was a nice one to share, but I'm having some comment on how it should not be safe using stainless steel in this project. As I don't have absolute knowledge about this before, and I just report what I learned, I was wondering if that was correct or not. (I know sometimes people comment very random stuff). Anybody know something about this topic?

is it safe to store lithium metal in alcohol to stop oxidization? Answered

hello, i extracted some lithium metal from some new lithium batteries i bought at a second hand shop really cheaply . ive extracted the metal from one, but now, after placing it under vegetable oil to store, then putting in water, the vegetable oil works too well seperating the lithium form the water, making small lithium combustion reactions very difficult and i really want to show my friends the marvels of lithium on water, so i want to know, is it safe to store lithium in methylated spirits, or some other hydrocarbon that will evaporate away really fast , and not inhibit the lithium's reaction with water, like canola oil does? clean lithium usually combusts when i put it in water , and the reaction is quite fast. but when i put oily lithium in water, the same does not happen, the reaction is slow, and no combustion occurs unless i use my jet lighter.

Is Alumisol Soft Plastic food safe?

I'm looking to cast a fake monster tongue out of Alumisol Soft Plastic (Plastisol) for a costume. Obviously it will end up going in my mouth. I can't find any information anywhere about the food-safety of the solid compound. What I gather from the msds sheet is that it's non-toxic, but it's a little ambiguous. The retailer I asked couldn't find any information either. From what I can tell it's usually used to create soft rubber fishing lures, so I'd assume it's environmentally friendly with respect to not releasing toxins into the water, and its listed uses include special effects as well as medical reproductions (Of tissue). Has anyone used this type of plastisol in contact with food or the surface of your mouth before? All help is appreciated.

What is a safe finish/sealer to use to make a set of decoupaged baby blocks drool-proof? Answered

I have decided to make a set of wooden blocks for my son.  I'm using Mod-Podge to decoupage pictures and designs, along with acrylic paint on the blocks. I know that Mod-Podge is water soluble, so it could make for a pretty gummy block after a 6 month old attacks it.  I'll need to make it water proof somehow.  On reading a particular Instructable on these blocks, the author said to use a non-toxic acrylic sealer.  I could not find such a sealer (or none stated "non-toxic") at the craft-store.  What is a safe brand or alternative to use?  OR. . . Mod-Podge aside,  what kind of method would YOU use to make these said set of baby-safe blocks? I thank you, kindly!

water-based kinetic LED lamp

I want to mak a kinetic light using high-powered LEDs to produce glitter line through a thin layer of agitated turbulent water in a wall mounted shelf. So, this gives me a few questions, but let me start with the idea I've got. I want to seperate a shelving unit (preferably solid wood not particleboard with some decent HxDxW) into two compartments. A glass sheet would be slid into grooves onto the side supports. The upper portion of the shelving unit would then be wood, waterproofed with some thin styrene plastic sheets. The bottom would then be composed of a large aluminum sheet (recessed slightly upwards for astheatics) which would house several LEDs in addition to the power adapter and voltage regulator. This would likely follow the "powering high powered LED" tutorial's alternate power source to the pucks. At this point a small pump would be placed into the upper compartment along with just enough water to submerge the pump to a safe level. Perhaps a small recess would be included in the top to allow instant colour shifts by using stained clear plastic sheets (this would reduce total illumination, but these are to be mood/ambient accents not primary lighting source) to avoid any of the more expensive/complex colour shifting lamps. The big question I have at this point is how thermally safe this would be, and how much LED I would actually need to achieve decent brightness. Also, I would prefer if the bottom was modular enough I could remove and work on it without dissasembling the entire assembly, but this may not be possible. Finally, I was wondering if I could run the heatsink material up the ront of the shelf, past the glass, and into the water (this should give great heat dissipation) and have a SAFE and STABLE waterproof join between a flush glass-metal joint with possible use of epoxy and/or silicone caulking. Anything not specified in here I'm uncertain of how to do exactly. So! If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, or awareness that this is pure madness (or has a better way t oget those glitter lines i lust for) please let me know.

Make water balloons explode in mid-air

Hello to all, This is my first post, so if I make a mistake I apologize in advance. I am looking for a way to make water balloons explode in mid-air. It must be safe (i.e. I am not going to shoot them out of the sky with some sort of projectile) and I would prefer not to utilize some form of explosive device. I would prefer something I could time and continuously reproduce. Whether it be an apparatus or a chemical reaction. It has to be safe to be done around children, environmentally friendly, in other words I don't want to cause anyone or anything harm other than the balloon itself. I would like to be able to make the balloons burst at either a specific time after launching or throwing or have them burst after reaching a certain height in the air. If I can figure out a way to this I will gladly share my whole idea. Thanks in advance.

How to create a safe DIY Snuba Apparatus

My Idea so far is to use an air pump (maybe one similar to the one that pumps up inflatables?) is to feed air down a tube to a modified snorkle mask with a 1-way valve going in, and a one-way valve feeding just into plain water.  The air pump would have filters and a catalytic carbon-monoxide filter/converter (w/ small heating element) in the tube leading down to the mask. The idea is that there is always a fresh supply of air running through the mask that there could be no deadly build-up of bad gases within the small area.  Included is a picture of how I envison it (minus the lame Microsoft Paint drawing skills).

Is oogoo (DIY Silicone Putty) Oven-safe?

Hello! I have a question for people who use oogoo, or generally DIY silicone molding putty made from 100% silicone caulk. I want to cast oogoo molds of lego bionicle masks with polymer clay, but my issue is I need to keep the clay inside the mold in order to prevent any kind of warping, as most of it is spread a little thin (1-2mm thickness) and I don't want to end up warping it even in the slightest. Is oogoo or cured 100% silicone caulk oven-safe as long as it's within the specified temperature range? (I already know most DIY silicone putties aren't food-grade.) The silicone caulk I'm using is GE all purpose silicone I, mixed with corn starch, acrylic paint, and baby oil. The back of the tube says that it should not be used on surfaces that will exceed 400F/205C. The polymer clay I plan on using is cured at 110C, so I don't think it'll be a problem, but I'm worried exposing the silicone caulk mold to high temperatures will cause it to release some harmful chemical compounds. I looked up an MSDS sheet for GE silicone, and they had a generalized one stating exceeding the maximum temperature will cause the release of formaldehyde. Since I plan on baking these in our kitchen oven, I wouldn't want harmful chemicals contaminating a space where we cook our food. Also, if baking isn't an option, since the polymer clay is spread thin, and cures close to 100C, would curing it in boiling water be an option? (That way any water soluble chemicals would remain contained while the clay hardens.) All help is appreciated!

Fire Extinguisher Case as a Water Bottle?

I went to test an old 2lb fire extinguisher we had by pressing the green test button and, it didn't work. The fire extinguisher was a BC type dry chemical fire extinguisher. The label reads (CONTENTS OF BC DRY CHEMICAL POWDER: SODIUM BICARBONATE, MICA, CALCIUM STEARATE, NUISANCE DUST, IRRITANT; HMIS 0-0-0.) I took the chemical out to use as crude sodium bicarbonate, and now I want to use the bottle. My plan is to keep the labels on, find a cap like they use on most aluminum water bottles, and clean the inside out really well. The question I have is, is it safe? It says the contents are non-toxic, but I would still want to clean it really well. What would I clean it with? Would I have to coat the inside of the bottle because of the metal, (powder coating type place) and if so, what type of coating? Thanks!

High quality and safe nickel plating question? Answered

Hi. There is instruction on this address https://www.instructables.com/id/High-Quality-and-safe-Nickel-Plating/ how to make high quality and safe nickel plating,and i have some question about that. When he showed to add salt to the vinegar in order to make the vinegar  more conductive,isnt the salt become Na and Cl ions? Will the Na positive ion stick to the negative nickel plate?(while making the nickel solution-step 3)? Will the Na positive ions stick to the item that we are plating besides the nickel( in the plating process-step 5)? will it spoil the object that we are plating with nickel? I see in the supermarket vinegar which said"synthetic vinegar" 5% acetic acid,water.(for food).Is it ok? when he said(step 4)"You can further clean your object by reverse electroplating (ie "electrocleaning") it for a few seconds.  Hook your object up to a negative voltage, a WIRE to the positive voltage, and drop them both in a vinegar salt solution for 10-30 seconds.  This will remove any left over oxidation" What wire did he mean? and the last one:how pure is the nickel should be?because i notice that most of the nickel sheet are about 99%-99.7% purity.is it ok? can i use pure nickel strip(97% pure nickel)that is used for battery welding? Thanks in advance.

How to safely remove led from my humidifier?

Bought tiny humidifier, big enough for bedtime but not so big as to ruin my electronics. It comes with a blue led behind the button that comes on when it’s on. The problem is that it’s very bright and disrupts sleep. I tried putting electric tape over the button, which helped some, but it continues to light up the water behind it. I want to remove it, but it looked like it is attached to a tiny circuit board, of which I have little experience. It is only one blue led, how do I remove it without destroying the circuit board and thus my humidifier?Note: I do have a soldering iron, but I'm afraid I'm gonna get solder everywhere and mess it all up because the push button part and the led are so close.

Non-solar, non-mains power in the garden?

Looking for advice on low-tech ways of solving a prob, hope someone can help. I really want to create a very small waterfall in my mini-garden, maybe 6” at the most.  I can’t use solar power, as my tiny garden only gets about an hour or so of direct sun around noon (I found out that less then direct sun doesn‘t work; I have a floor-standing 4-bowl cascade that stops the instant a shred of cloud gets in the way). I can’t have mains electricity outside, partly because most of the area is paved and I can’t get the cables safely out of the way; I could get cable around the wall, but it’d have to go round three walls to get it where I need it, and I’m not sure about having the cable overhead. I’ve been searching for some time for some kind of power-pack that I could charge up on the mains, then plug into the feature; I don’t think household batteries would run for very long, I was thinking of something with a bit more punch. Either they don’t make anything like this, or I’ve not yet been able to find the right keywords to track it down; I get untold pages of “solar power” options.  So, basically, people, I’m asking: is there such a thing, or anything that would solve my prob?  I’d have to buy a tiny pump and all the rest of the stuff, but if I can’t power it, what’s the point? Some background: I’m visually impaired, so intricate work is out of the question; I’m not so much low-tech as no-tech; my only power tool is a small cordless drill/screwdriver;  I’m not confident about messing with electricity I live in rented accommodation so I can’t do too much to the structure (ie get the paving lifted and cables put under them, or even running round the walls)

i'm making a boiler can i use a one way valve? Answered

So i'm trying to make a boiler system so that i can get a little bit of energy back from my forge the idea for the forge is to basically cut open a 55 gallon drum on the bottom flat side and put a forced air pipe in the small orifice normally used as an air hole when dumping the barrel. then i'd cut out the space needed to fit 4 inch stove piping where the larger 2 inch orifice is and carry the exhaust outside and out of mind. then i'd cut a hole in the bottom of the barrel so i can get my work in, put in a steel plate that was cannibalized and drill a few air holes in it, put refractory cement everywhere and bob's your uncle. what i want to do however is to put some water pipe in the fire box and have it turn a turbine or something, i'll cross that particular bridge when i get to it. but the main question is how can i safely store a reservoir of water so that the pipes don't run out of water halfway through a burn cycle? the thought was that i'd invert another 55 gallon barrel and connect it to one end of the pipes with a one way valve. the only question is would the valve guard the second barrel from the pressure generated while still allowing the water to flow in when necessary? or would the barrel just load up with pressure and when i hit 20 psi it just explodes in a hot watery mess? any knowledge about this would be great, stuff like where to get cheap but good pipe in upstate new york, where to get regulators, how to find the valve itself, or even where i can find safety fittings like pressure release valves and temperature control.

How to remodel my front yard garden?

Hi, i have my front yard that I want to renovate so that it is both appealing day and night to anybody who walks in and memorises that moment.  This is the area that has the most traffic everyday at about any time so it needs to be practical, safe and appealing.  I want to design and use any materials but needs to be in the green way as there are much focus on these nowadays and prevent wastage. This is what I have in mind: 12 volt system: A/or many power packs that will provide power to all the electrical stuffs, charged using solar panels and since these will be low voltage it should be safe. Items that would be using 12v would be outdoor lighthing, the power cables, water pump submersible, submersible light.  It would be great to have an electrical plan that would aid however I don't know how to do that. Water feature: Add a biological filter made of concrete for the pond with all its plumbing and also add overflow drain in pond and a small canal to evacuate the excess of water.  Plants:  Concerning the plants some will be moved, cut down or removed completely.  I want a complete mixture of different kinds of plants such As bushes creeping plants etc.  It would be nice to create a plant plan both written and visual as it would aid greatly however I don't really have that knowledge. Other things: I would like to include pergolas and arbours and also allow plants to grow on them such as creeping plants. I want the area to have complete or as much privacy as possible but don't really know specially by hiding the view from above.  As A boundary I want to include fencing and then let creeping plants to grow on them just to get that privacy.  An automatic watering system would be very good such as popup sprinkler, or drip irrigation but an irrigation plan would best be suited but still I don't know how to make that. There should be provision for spaces in adding security cameras that would remain hidden for a certain time period. Finally there should be an Area to store dustbin and also to let clothes dry.
