I very much enjoy this site but am completely new to the building stuff thing. I don't even know enough to know where my lack of skills to begin. Is it possible that someone with more experience could create a daisy-chain list of basic building/electronics/etc. that I could use as a blueprint for my development? If possible I would like this to include Instructable lists thanks in advance Shamus

Anyone have any good airsoft ideas, devices, bombs, claymores, or other things to help you get the upper hand in an airsoft war, because I'm getting owned by higher fps guns with a faster rate of fire. Any sort or non toxic smoke bomb would be nice. Just post anything related to airsoft here...

Long time listener. First time caller. Excited to be on your show guys. What I would like to do is make my own silicone bracelets / bands. Like Lance the liar Livestrong bands. But cooler. I've seen lots of posts on creating silicone molds. I think I can figure that part out. What I haven't found is a discussion on molding stretchy, rubbery silicone stuff. In my case - wrist bands. Anyone here have an idea on what to use and how/where to purchase? I chatted with the kids at Make Your Own Molds and they were helpful on making my mold. But they couldn't recommend a site to buy the silicone for the bands. Help!!

Could Instructables perhaps include the category of REPAIRS. It just occurred to me when saw His Highness, E.W. post the repair of his power saw that there is no place really for this topic. I routinely replace the power cords on all my power tools on purchase with a 5M cable. (the factory cables are always too short and sometimes the plug is just downright weird). Lately I have replaced the bearings in my planer (with 100% success). However I seriously battled with the removal of one of them and did need advice. As a farmer I am constantly repairing stuff and am currently busy vivesecting my old drill and need advice on how to check the various parts for continuity, since smoke came out of it! but don't have a clue where to post though except in offbeat.

I waver my hand over my computer's power supply, I here a loud buzzing noise. How to do this: press tip of thumb to tip of 3.5mm jack turn your speakers up pretty high waver hand over complex electronics boy, do i have fun mornings, lol, being sarcastic

So I have this project and I need a rather large set of pumps.Ideally I’m looking for peristaltic pumps, but a normal one will work too. 600ml/min+ (ideally 1500+). Also I’m looking for solenoids. I can find them for around 5 each but this is way to expensive. Where can I find this stuff cheaper.
Question by CamdenS5
how would you fix a weedeater where it wont suck any gas in it has lost compression and you can actually hear grinding in the cylinder when the piston moves up and down and a screw stripped on the crankcase? and you cant get off the exhaust because it was like welded on.

This isn't exactly a conventional question, but it's a question nonetheless. The thing is, I'm thinking of starting a forum for all the tricky techniques and methods with batch (it wouldn't be a great instructable as it would require a lot of previous knowledge). So, I'd basically just have an index with all these different segments of how to do tricky stuff (such as advanced techniques for piping and other random stuff). The only problem is that I don't know what to make it on, so I'm trying to target people who've read all the instructables and are still missing that extra bit of information. Now, you could say something like "do whatever you think is hard", but the thing is I work better when it's at the request of someone else (basically I like to help people, and I'm abusing that natural urge). So, if you're experienced in batch but are curious about anything (perhaps how to ignore every rule in the book and put 50 nested for loops within your script), please post it below. Thank you. --EDIT-- I've started rewriting my batch tutorial, so most of the stuff you comment will go into that... somewhere.

I replied to one of the emails I got regarding the Make it Tweet contest, but I think I was replying to a robot so I will ask here as well.... I received my prize pack, tee shirt and stickers and I am quite happy, I must say, However, I can't seem to find the coupon or code for my Think Geek prize. Was it sent as a hard-copy? I am surprised that I didn't get a code number in my email. Where should I look for this? Thanks bunches Chris the Carpenter

Memorizing Method This was originally going to be my first instructable but I figured it would be better off as a forum thingy. This is a method that can help you remember up to 10 items. I learned this from one of my teachers and find that it is quite effective. All you need for this is a brain, the names of 10 items, very little rhyming ability, and some imagination. Rhyming words that that you need to know... ONE rhymes with BUN TWO with TREE THREE with TREE FOUR with DOOR FIVE with HIVE SIX with STICKS SEVEN with HEAVEN EIGHT with GATE NINE with LINE TEN with HEN How do you apply these rhymes to remembering stuff you ask, hereâs how. With an example... say the ten things you need to remember are, computer, a grenade, frog, cow, ninja, thumbtack, phone, cereal, Kansas, and CD. Computer is your #1 item and BUN rhymes with ONE, soooooo, picture a computer in a hamburger bun STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. A grenade is your #2 item, TWO rhymes with SHOE so picture a grenade in a shoe STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. THREE rhymes with TREE, so visualize a frog in a tree or a tree frog STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. FOUR rhymes with DOOR, word #4 is cow, so picture a cow stuck in a door or something like that, STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. FIVE rhymes with HIVE, like a bee hive, so visualize a ninja fighting bees or something. Okay, #5 is the last ex. I am going to explain, you should be able to figure out your own images for the rest.

So I have lying around the following items: An rc car (all the components work, i just shorted out the battery, and they don't sell replacements here) A DVD player (The motor that spins the DVD around burned out, I tried to replace with a motor that was the exact same size and everything, and now it is behaving funny) a satellite box (it's good, we just cancelled our subscription, so they took our antenna) an lcd screen that I too from its casing (BTW, how do I tell which pin is which (I have a multimeter, but it doesn't really help in that matter)?) A Linksys wireless router (including the wall adapter) An old phone ( look here: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout;=500&calledFromFrame;=N&application;_id=89654&fcc;_id=%27LJPNSW-1NX%27) A Pirates of the Caribbean alarm clock that is supposed to project the time onto the wall when you push it down. A dismembered remote from a different remote control item (I only have the remote for that one) A fishing reel that I haven't been able to put back together Miscelleny av wires, wall adapter, other wires So where I am going with this, is, what totally awesome machine can I build with this stuff?

Hi hi, i have an old pair of cyclist's leg warmers. they have lost some of their elastic action, and they fall down almost straight away. I went and bought some new elastic to sew onto them, but also wanted to stick some gripper stuff on the inside. The gripper stuff is found on most knicks and cycle shorts now; it's some sort of silicone or rubber that grips to your leg. I don't know what exactly it is, so didn't want to go out to the hardware store and just buy some tube of silicone, only to find out it irritates the hell out of my skin or just doesn't do the job. I tried a (big) sewing supplies store, but they had no idea what it could be. Can anyone help? I'm in Australia. I saw that in the states you can buy elastic with the gripper already on it, which is a bit of a pain. The gripper stuff is used by skiers and canoeists too... Cheers, Ben

Hello guys! I already have the Arduino Rev3 but I want to know if all these components I want to buy will work with the new one. They are in a kit for the old board, but I hope they work with the new one. Please tell me if they will work or not. Thanks!

There are various projects I have come across that use stolen stuff. By posting them you are supporting theft. Example chair from shopping cart. Those are not cheap to buy for the stores they are stolen from. Road sign furniture. Unless you have a contact with the road crew for old signs, where do you think the signs come from. There are others, but you get the idea. If you what to be a respected site, do not post the work of thieves. Later Zipperboy aka adventureboy7 etc.
