Pinhole Slide Projector

Hi! I have no idea whether this is the right place to post this topic, but it does say 'burning questions' and that's what this is, so here goes. :-) I've had this idea for a kind of pinhole lense slide projector. The (very basic) diagram is pretty self explanatory, and I was wondering if anyone's tried/heard of anything like this, and whether it could work? Do you think a 100 LED torch would be bright enough? Also, if I'm right in thinking that LEDs don't get hot, there shouldn't be a risk of overheating/fire should there? Thanks! Looking forward to hearing what you think! :-)

automatic sliding door

Hi,  I ve been looking all over (www), and I can't find any useful tips, tuts, ... about modding an existing sliding door into an automated one.  This without ordering a ready-made system, which costs many $$$$. I 've had this idea for a while already, and I admit seeing https://www.instructables.com/id/Air-Powered-Star-Trek-Style-Door/ brought the brain to bubble again.. If anyone has some experience with this or can share some interesting links ? (re-use an old engine from something..., controls.., touchpad/sensor, ...) would be great. thx D

How Do You Make a Slide Show Viewable?

Ok, I made a slide show and I published it. The problem is, the only way you can view it is if you go to my page and click on the picture. You can't just search it in the box and it'll come up on one of the pages. Example: You make a slide show called "Iron man haloween costume." If you search it in the box in the top right corner of the screen. It wont come up in the "search results." The only way you can view it is if you go to the authors account page and click on the image/link to it. End of example. Now how do you make it able to view if you search it in the box. Is it the license has to be a certain type or what do you have to do. Please help and reply with an answer. Many thanks, Chill88

Giant Slip 'n' Slide?

Hey Guys     I'm graduating high school in two weeks and my friend and I were talking about something to do the day after finals. I brought up doing a Slip n Slide down a nearby sledding hill. I found a site that has some basic information on the hill. It's 200-300 feet long and has a 60 degree slope. Yeah pretty steep haha. So here's what I need to know: What is a good material for this slide that will hold together but is still relatively cheap? Tarps were the original idea but I was told menards may have large rolls of plastic you can roll down a hill. What is the best combination to get the slide slippery? We dont have access to water so we'll be bringing just enough in garbage cans to wet it down. So what kind of soap or lubricant is best for the slide? It would help if it didn't burn afterwards! Thanks for the help in advance. Picture of the hill in winter  3.bp.blogspot.com/_ymkfNB3shbw/R1sBuKwdScI/AAAAAAAAAUU/JD8auciBxMM/s400/sled22.jpg

Need help ordering B10K slide pot

Hello, I need a replacement Alpha B10K slider pot, 60mm travel, has 2 separate pots in the package.  The one I have which I think is bad has 8 pins, 4 on each end.  So far all the replacements I have found on the web have at most 6 pins, 1 less pin per pot.  1 of the extra 2 pins on my pot are being used in the circuit (a USB music player).  Can I adapt the 6-pin pots to work in my device, or can someone direct me to where I can find a B10K with 8 pins? Any help appreciated. Thanks

(SOLVED) Mounting Slide Potentiometers

I need help for a project I am soon to begin work on ('ible coming soon). It will involve several switches and potentiometers mounted on a piece of hardboard. The switches and rotary potentiometers I have all have washers (or whatever you call the hexagonal things with screw-like threads on the inside) to secure them in place. The slide potentiometers don't. My question is this: How would I mount the slide potentiometers? Thanks in advance, ~H4ZZ

Knex gun using a slide

I was told to post this in the forums, so here it is. I was wandering around this site and found a man that had created a pistol that uses a slide to move the firing pin instead of grabbing it directly. I made his gun and improved upon it. I turned his simple pistol into a rifle/SMG There are of course some problems: cannot handle rapid fire for extended periods of time single shot doesn't shoot far but cannot handle additional rubber bands. It's pretty cool though. Right now i'm trying to increase the range and make it more durable. But i can't think of how i can improve it anymore.

Slide projector video display

Hi, first time posting, and I would like some basic advice on a problem i am encountering with a project.I am attempting to convert an old slide projector (single slide variety) into a video projector. Light output will be fine once I get a higher wattage bulb, and temperature is not a real issue. The problem i have is that, i need a display (around 2x2 inch) and I am not sure where to get one that you could hook up to  an external input. I have, however, found a few old cell phone screens. Does anyone think that this would work, and if you know of any, could you please post some helpful web sites on how to wire these displays. Also, if you know of any ready-made displays that would be suitable to tear apart and use, that would be useful.much appreciated, thanks.

Ideas for powering a sliding gate?

Hi All, For three years now I have been driving in and out of this gate, and each time I do I rack my brain to come up with a clever way to power it. It would be great to have it open without getting out of the car. It's pretty heavy and I have to lean on it to get it moving, but then it rolls along its track nicely. In my work I have access to water pumps, pressure tanks and plumbing fittings, so I have been leaning toward powering it hydraulically. I don't know if this would be possible using town water pressure - if at all. If anyone has any clever ideas or suggestions I would love to hear them. Cheers, cammers.

Homeade Airsoft Pistol Slide (3D Design and Printing)?

But that is the thing, how would I go about designing a slide to fit on my gun (ls m9 by black viper) The current slide is plastic but transparent so it is difficult to patch it together in 123d design. I don't have any software that you have to pay for, and I have access to a 3d printer... How would I go about doing it please? Thanks

ISO 4in diam clear tube 3-4ft in length for sm pet slide

Hello, I was watching a video where someone was using a mailing tube a hedgehog slide. I wanted to do the same with our heggie as he loves to burrow and will dive off any ledge he can find if we don't watch him. I think the one she used was 3in, but our heggie needs a 4in round and since here is a bit rounder; it needs to be about 3-4ft as well, though we could cut it down. I would like to find an alternative that is clear or semi-clear as it would be nice to be able to see him in the tube as he slides. It also needs to be fairly inexpensive. For anyone interested, our heggies name happens to be Burrow as well. Maybe a fairy whispered it my ear because we choose the name when he was no larger than a large spiky button and it was 6 weeks before we could bring him home. He has wobbly hedgehog syndrome and we really want him to have some fun.  Thanks for any help, Liocorno

Does anyone know of a small passive audio potentiometer? Answered

I have been looking for a small audio potentiometer, which would fit seamlessly with my headphones. I have some example pictures of something that I was thinking of. I want a simple cable which has an input headphone jack on one end (male), and the female connector on the other end so I can plug in my headphones. I have examples, but they are just too large and obtrusive. I know that there are small slide potentiometers and was wondering if it would possible to make something like this, or if there is something commercially available. If someone with circuitry knowledge would be able to advise me on how to approach this it would be much appreciated. I like the way some headphones have volume controls which have buttons, but those control the device's volume, and that size would be what I was looking for, but with a slide potentiometer. Any help is very appreciated,    Sterling

sliding bulletin board... need help

Any idea on how I can make a track to attach to a wall to have a cork board that is able to be slid up and down over a dry erase board. It would need to "lock" in order to keep it in place when slid up but then easily able to be unlocked to slide down when access to it is needed. I imagine the tracks would be something like the ones that slide drawers on Ikea desks etc... sort of like this but perhaps vertically. http://www.whiteboardsetc.com/Horizontal_Sliders.htm Horizontal ideas would help as well as a second option Thoughts?

How to apply wet-slide decals?

Passing this question along for a friend: i have been experimenting with wet-slide decals, to do complex graphics, but can't figure out how to make them work. They are essentially a piece of thin plastic on paper backing. You print on them, using a printer, then immerse them in water to get the paper backing to come off. Then, you slide the decals onto whatever surface you have. finally, you use a softening agent, to get them to meld onto the surface without edges. i have spent 10+ hours, trying to make a 3"x2" decal. No dice. And none of the guides online have worked for me. I have a couple of problems: 1. can't get decal to not lose its proportions—i.e., stretches when i seat it 2. can't get print not to bleed (ink-jet version) or flake (laser version)—even when i use a fixative Also, if i try to cut decal to just dimensions of surface i am applying to, the edges tend to curl up and refuse to flatten out—without further causing 1 and 2 above.

Slide up /down wall mount for flat monitor/tv

Hello fellow builders! Title says it all. I would like to build something like this project: https://www.instructables.com/id/TV-Lift-Cabinet-in-under-three-hours/ but without the motor and closet.  I would like to attach a monitor to a metal plate (or rails). This plate has to be attached to a wall and be able to slide up/down that wall vertically. I will manually pull it upwards (weight monitor is 10 pounds max) or push it downwards. And it has 'stay' in the position I pulled it up to, but sliding up/downwards has to be easy. But there's one catch: I do not want to see rail's or something on the wall ABOVE the monitor when it is in its downwards position. Also it would be nice if it was as sleek as possible. Does somebody know what kind of sliding mechanism I could make/buy that could be suitable for this task? I've done a lot of asking/searching but no one seems to have any usable tips! Many thanks!
