Unfortunately we've closed down the store for a while. You can get t-shirts and other goodies through us by winning contests! ---------------------------------------------------------- We very recently opened up the Instructables Store! Right now it's still very early and only has a few items in it, but we are going to be expanding it a bit more soon. Currently available are T-shirts, packs of Sugru, and a couple of cardboard kits. Next to be added are more cardboard animals for construction. After that we'll be looking to add a variety of very limited edition items. It will be experimental and we hope to learn a lot from it as well as offer up fun and unique items to all of you. Again, that's the new Instructables Store! Thank you.

I am a new member here, registered, all of that. After I took care of that, I tried to visit the store. The first block was the declaration that I wasn't signed in. Oh, but I was! However, I tried to sign in again - but screen asked twice for email and no blank for user name. I got rejected there, tool Not to be outdone, I came back today with determination. Ha! Just run a ditto through all the problems. Maybe I am being discriminated against because I am Firefox - perhaps it is because I am a Macgirl. Whatever the reason, everything else works OK - but you won't ever have to worry about selling me anything if you won't open the door.

Hi, I was just wondering how to make an account for the 'Ibles store? every time i go to the store i wanna make an account but there is no "make an account" option...this is really frustration. i have tried using my 'Ibles normal sign in but it dont work...so whats up with that. i would prefer (and speaking for others on the site) to just enter my name, and info (minus payment method) so we dont have to write it all out over and over again.

Hey, this is just a question for people who have opened up stores in the Marketplace (or are trying to sell kits, or just want to have some input. :-) ). I just opened mine up today... Shameless Plug.Is anybody getting any activity in their stores? I mean, has anyone made any sales? The Marketplace is great, I just wonder how much activity goes on there.

Hi, Our group is buying about 1.5 tons of wheat. We are packing it in 5 gallon seal-able buckets after doing the dry ice thing. We intend ti use some of the wheat as seed in the spring (probably many springs). QUESTION: Does the use of dry ice affect the viability of wheat? If so- is there an alternate long-term storage method we should be considering? Thanks

Hey Guys, I have wondered on this from a long time. Can lightning energy be stored? Lightning occurs when water droplets rub together right? Which means this is static electricity. As lightning strike the highest point why dont they make a huge conductive bar? And as i know from the various lyden jar projects storing static isnt that difficult. So why dont they do it? I asked my dad that how much is it per lightning strike he said millions of kilovolts if that is true then why dont they store it? My dad said that its because they cant store that much electricity. Is that the only reason? BTW I'm 12 so please ignore my dumb electric knowledge :).

What is the best way to store digital pictures? The dates are usually automatically downloaded in a date folder using Windows Live Photo Gallery. I would like to be able to access them easily however they are taking up room on my laptop. I've considered CD/DVDs or uploading Shutterfly, Flickr, etc however not really a permanent solution.

I bought some flavored bones for my dog at a store and found that they are pig bones. She had blood in her stool (lots). I gave her peroxide and she threw up about 30 shards. they were sharp enough to remove a sliver from your finger. Never give you dog pork bones, EVER. I don't know everywhere they are sold but I got mine at TSC My dog is fine by the way.

What are the best online stores out there? most reliable? fastest shipping? cheapest shipping?Of the ones listed below which are most trustworthy?bwayphoto.combhphotovideo.combeachcamera.comsoniccameras.com via pricingdepot.cometc.i'm trying to buy the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi and am curious which is bestmy favorite deal was on bwayphoto, but after reading reviews of the site, i've become really skeptical. They have my camera on sale at $597 for the body and TWO lenses, but i am unsure whether it would be wise to buy from them. The lenses are the stock lense and a 75-300mm zoom whcih i think would be a GREAT deal. Should i try them and try to get through the sales pitch?Pricing depot shows that sonic camera sells the body for only $319 but eh, who knows?the reviews seemed okay. similar to those of bway, but more reliable. (they had a sales pitch, phone confirmation, etc.)b and h seems incredibly reliable, but the prices aren't amazingly low like the others. ( i guess that shows it's trustworthiness?)beachcamera i never really looked over, i just heard it was good. so, what do you think?

We've just returned from staying with friends in Geneva, where we slept in their (large and airy) basement. Next to the bedroom was the room our friends used as a store room - their nuclear bunker! When their house was built, it was a legal requirement for all homes to have a nuclear bunker. A stocked, functioning nuclear bunker. The door is steel, filled with concrete. It doesn't have a lock - that huge yellow bolt and spanner hold the door shut against invaders. The door on the wall is an escape hatch, in case the house collapses on the main door, and the machinery in the corner is the air filter. The shelves double as beds, and the toilet is a bucket with a lid. I found it fascinating, and, to be honest, disturbing. It took me two days to "get around" to going through and taking these photos. I grew up during the tense days of US/Soviet nuclear proliferation, when Threads wasn't just a disturbing drama, it was almost a government information film. I paid attention at school - I knew what nuclear weapons really did. To most kids, they were a cool way of destroying a bunch of stuff (even more so today). To me, they were (and are) flatly horrifying, and the stuff of genuine nightmares. I look forward to when things like reduced to the kind of novel feature that ranks alongside "original fireplace" or sash windows.

Has anybody heard whether Instructables is ever planning to reopen their store? Or alternative sources for Instructables gear?When I first joined, they had a store with some cool stuff in it. I'd LOVE to have an official Instructables t-shirt or other swag. Similarly, does anybody know of a 3rd party vendor for Instructables shirts/etc? (For example, there are a few vendors who sell on TeeSpring and eBay who have produced their own AvE t-shirts.) Failing any official or current source, I may just have to make my own. I will definitely publicize it if I do end up doing so.Instructables: Do you have any plans to bring back the store? If not, please consider this as an official request from a huge fan who wishes to support you (and wear your support on his sleeve!) Please, and thank you!(I know that Instructables employees occasionally browse these topics, so I'm hoping for the best here.)

Hey guys! I just got this cool little temperature (LM35) and I had a small problem. I want to upload this sketch to my ATtiny45 and put it on my plane so I could get the temperature from above. Only problem is I have no way of seeing it. So is there a simple, easy solution to storing a couple of numbers? I though I could just set the temperature every 3 minutes to a variable, but if I turned the board off, the data would be lost. So I don't need to store tons of memory just a couple numbers! Thanks!

Anyone know a way to store those elastic cargo nets that look like a spider web made out of bungee cords? The net always gets twisted around & through itself and the hooks do their best to make sure it stays that way! The best way I've come up with so far is to stretch it out on an old towel, piece of tarp or something similar that's about the same size as the net and then roll them up together like a giant Taquito. But that's pretty bulky, especially if you have several. Better ideas?

Just out of interest... I was pondering as to whether the dimise of small chain harware stores is a world wide phenominum or is just an Australian trend... I am lucky enough to have started with my company, back when it was the type of store you could dash into and see Bob from electrical, that had that 1w LeD you were looking for, that never sells, just Bob has some stashed away just for special customers like yourself... Or Dave in plumbing that knows exactly what PSI rated pipe you need for the job..... Or even Tim in tools is still holding that $400 impact drill he ordered in just 'cause you said you wanted to check it out(even though he is not supposed to) Unfortunatley we have been taken over by a multi-million dollar company and things have changed.... Most of the old employees were sacked.... But some made it though... I have taking it apon myself to resurect the fallen company, one person at a time.... So far 5 of us remain (quality employees that LOVE our customers) I now am a manager and have trained over 15 employees. (these team members at times get VERY protective of their departments, which makes me wonder if I instilled a 'lil bit to much of myself in them) Those 15 have trained atleast 5 employees each... So far that's 80 employees... Hopefully this spontaniously continues... I might add, these employees act vastley different from the generic 16yr old kid, the new business employs, who doesn't care if a customers get's stuffed around for hours on end.... 80 vs 30,000 It's seems to be working as I have had MANY complements as to the QUALITY of service provided to customers, by these employees. In the mean time until we take control (I already have 90% of my staff converted to the dark side at my store ;p) It's off to go hide some LeD's, Switch's, Fitting's, Drill's etc down inside our racking so "other" managers don't find out and squeel to head office... Anyway's, is there any Bob's or Dave's left at your local hardware store that you can call on, for all those weird and wonderful things we needs to make all our Instructable dreams come true???

I've made several hydrogen generators via electrolysis, but every time I failed to store the generated hydrogen under (some) pressure. In this-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9Q6gDKP2R0 video they used an emptied fire extinguiser to store the hydrogen. The only problem with this is that they use a chemical reaction to generate the hydrogen whereas I want to use a renewable source (electricity). I have a compressor so I could use that to generate the pressure. Has anyone got any ideas on how I could store hydrogen under pressure? Thanks

If I bought 2 rechargeable lithium polymer batteries for a cell phone, but only needed one for now, could I store the unused battery until the first battery quit charging (and was garbage)? If the above question makes ZERO SENSE, let me try explaining it another way: Ok, you have this fancy gadget that you want to keep functioning for many years. Eventually, the battery inside won't be able to take a charge, and the battery will be obsolete and no longer sold. Would it make sense to buy extra batteries ('stock up') and store them for a time when the original battery went bunk; would the stored batteries be like brand new after many years (these batteries would have never been charged before.. they would be still originally packaged)? Hope that actually makes sense :D -Neph

And now that I have calendars left over I've started selling them online at a new store here: supamoto.co The calendars are big at 24" x 36" with the goal of being able to make long-term plans and see the whole year at a glance. It also has a week count down the middle so you can quickly see how far away events are in the past or future. For all of you awesome folks here, I'd like to offer up a discount code for $2 off. Just use INSTRUCTATHON when checking out. Yes, I know, the store is super rough. It needs work. I'm getting to it when I can.

What is the most practical and cost efficient way to make a 10m3 gas bag for the storage of hydrogen? I am planning to store pure Hydrogen (made from water electrolysis) in an outdoor area, a bit like the way biodigestor gas is stored in low cost, small scale installations. My concern is the high effusing nature of the gas through membrane material. My first thought was to use reinforced PVC like that used for truck tarpaulins but I can't find any info on effusing rates verses other materials. Ideally the gas would be able to remain in the bag for a maximum 2-3 weeks until needed. This is an experiment on the practical applications of locally produced hydrogen, so I hope to be able to follow up any advice by constructing the gas bag and reporting back with the project progress. Any thoughts and advice would be gratefully received! Thanks in advance, Nick

Hello, fellow Michiganders! *points to palm*I recently learned about Silicon Alley Recyclers, a Warren (10 and Ryan) outfit that takes cast-off computers and stuff (mostly from corporate environments), refurbs the machines, and sells them (cheap). I've taken the opportunity to unload some of my old boat-anchors, and I've picked up some neat hardware too. Are there other similar outfits in the area?A fun place for supplies is Arts and Scraps in Ann Arbor, which carries all sorts of industrial offcuts, recycled whatsits, and nifty thingamabobs. I don't know how else to describe it. I had a few bushels of cellphone parts to get rid of, and A&S; took the keypads and cases off my hands eagerly. (They wouldn't take the PCBs, which I still need to dispose of.)Cranbrook's art school has a directory of metal suppliers in the area, and I've personally been getting stuff from Metal Mart at 13 and Dequindre in Warren, right around the corner. They're cool with small orders, and very laid-back about shopping. After saying hi, they'll generally just ask you to go back and browse until you find what you want. There's a nice rack of scraps and pieces up near the front, which usually has all I need.For electronics parts, ever since K40 on Van Dyke and Michigan Radio (the store, not the broadcasting service) closed I've been going to Abel Electronics in St Clair Shores, and once in a while I'll hit up RS Electronics in Livonia. I need to stop in at Galco Industrial Electronics one of these days, since they're also right around the corner. There's a new Grainger in Madison Heights on Whitcomb (13 1/2 mile) but I've never been in there.Okay, that's my braindump for now. If you know more suppliers, please reply to this post, otherwise start a new thread so this one stays on-topic and info-dense.
