Adjustable Keyboard Tray

Trying to figure out how to make an adjustable Keyboard/Mouse tray for ergonomic purposes. Seems like it might be relatively easy with some kind of flexible tubing e.g. flex eletrical conduit. and piece of wood for the tray. Very surprised to find near 0 content on the web with this, especially since these trays aren't exactly cheap.

How to seal photos on wood? Answered

Can anyone recommend a sealant suitable for sealing photos stuck to wood? I want it to be durable and wipable (it's for a food tray). It wouldn't have to seal the wood around the photo, just on top of an A3 photo. I *would* go down to the local DIY superstore and ask there, but a lot of their staff are monkeys, I'm sure you guys could give me a better answer :p

Cup warmer plate/tray to install in cupboard

My house is rather cold in the winter, and when I make coffee in the morning I have to manually heat my espresso cups by filling them with warm water. A lot of automatic espresso machines have cup warmer trays. I don't want to buy a new coffee machine. I am thinking it would be possible to place some kind of warming mat under my cups in the cupboard, somewhat similar to heated mattresses / heating blankets. I haven't found any existing products that fit the description. Any input on this? :)

is there an easy way to manually operate a cd tray?

Im in the middle of automating my trash can (i know i can just buy one, but what's the fun in that?) and i got the proximity sensor part to work, but i cant think of a way to turn a short burst (in the sensor test circuit i had the led on the output blinked once when my hand got close yay!) into a signal that would power an old cd motor until it opened, pushing the trash can lid open, wait about 10sec or so, then apply reverse polarity for 2sec or so until it closed. i might be able to use a microcontroller to do this, but im just getting into that and i don't want to use one for this unless there isn't another way. if it's relevant im using a 555 to generate a 38khz pulse to an ir led picked up by rpm7138. any ideas?

How do you remove paint from an ice-cube tray so that you can use the ice-cube tray for making ice again? Answered

So I have this ice-cube tray, made of white plastic. My little sister used it for a paint palette and she didn't wash it. You can still see the green paint and I'm not sure what type of paint she used. We've tried using detergent and toothpaste. It removed most of the paint, but there's still a bit left. I'm also not sure whether it will be safe to use at all.  Any ideas?

Looking for micro pump for steampunk liquid-cooled laptop tray

Anyone with an aluminum powerbook knows how scary-hot the get during a dvd rip. My solution is a steampunk liquid cooling tray. It would have a copper plate with a thin liquid reservoir just under the centre, where the processor is, with brazed copper tubes emanating outward under the tray. But to keep the tray thin, I can't take advantage of the natural upward flow of the hot liquid and I want to avoid radiators hanging out the back or sides. I figure I need a wee pump to push the liquid out to the outer edges to cool. Running off the USB of course! I've seen the one made from a phone vibrator, a pen and some tubing. That'd work, i suppose. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find a low voltage micro/nano pump? As for the USB, I found a mini voltage converter here. I can handle the design, it's the technical (esp. electrical) aspects that make me stumble. Any help would be so appreciated.

Wiring a salvaged CD drive eject tray mechanism and motor into a car?

Hi everyone. I'm making a custom back-up camera monitor mount for my brother's car. He doesn't live in a great neighborhood, so we want it to be hidden when not in use. We were just going to conceal it in an unused cubbyhole drawer under the radio, and he could pull it out and push it back in as needed. But as I was sitting at my PC, I bumped the DVD eject button and it occurred to me that we could spend a little more effort and have it be powered using a salvaged CD drive. I'm not an electronics guy, but I've pulled apart an old CD drive and the motor and gearing system seem fairly straight forward. The car is 12v DC, obviously, and the eject tray motor is also DC, but the spec. sticker on the motor is unreadable, so I don't know the voltage.  There's an obvious limiter switch in the mount that flips when the tray is fully extended, and what looks to be another one on the circuit board that flips when it's closed. Can anyone help me with wiring on this? I'd like to have it so he either presses a concealed switch to open and close the drawer, or possibly have it tie into the switch that activates the back-up lights. Thanks!

Can you freeze dry food at home?

I would like to know how to freeze dry food. Could some create an Instructable How-To,... Can someone build a machine that freeze dry food? There are essentially three categories of freeze-dryers: the manifold freeze-dryer, the rotary freeze-dryer and the tray style freeze-dryer. Two components are common to all types of freeze-dryers: a vacuum pump to reduce the ambient gas pressure in a vessel containing the substance to be dried and a condenser to remove the moisture by condensation on a surface cooled to -40 to -80 C (-40 to -112 F). The manifold, rotary and tray type freeze-dryers differ in the method by which the dried substance is interfaced with a condenser. In manifold freeze-dryers a short usually circular tube is used to connect multiple containers with the dried product to a condenser. The rotary and tray freeze-dryers have a single large reservoir for the dried substance. Thank You

Is there a durable, waterproof UHF HT that will accept AA batteries?

By waterproof, I of course mean "weather-resistant." I'm looking for an UHF HT that will be just fine if it gets dropped into a lake or falls off an ATV. It doesn't need to float; I can attach a floating keychain to it if necessary. It should also have a AA battery tray that is available from the manufacturer, and still be waterproof with the AA tray. Ideally it would have a keypad. Do you have personal experience with a HT that meets these requirements?

Peeponics doggy urine nutrient cycle system

Hi, I have a dog at home who uses a litter tray. It's basically a large plastic water run off tray with some AstroTurf. Currently, I have a pump that draws off liquids and deposits them into an empty soda bottle, which I flush down the toilet. But I was wondering if there is an easy way to convert the urine into nitrates which I could use in an aquaponics, or peeponics, system? Possibly using an attractive under water garden in a 25 gallon fish tank?
