Twin blade ceiling fan

Hello, I fell in love with the twin-blade ceiling fan pictured at the link below (for some reason the uploader doesn't work in either form for me) , but at over $800 I hate the price tag.  I would like to try and DIY something like this for my new house, but I do not have the electrical knowledge to do it alone.  I figure that if I can find two second-hand desk fans and wire them into a nice light fixture I could get the look I want without the price, but I need to know how to do so safely.  I wouldn't want an electrical fire to burn down my new home! If anyone knows how to get these things all wired right it would be a great help! Joelle

Twin-blade ceiling fan (Steampunk-esque)

Hi, I tried posting this already but then couldn't find it so I hope I am not posting twice... I fell in love with this ceiling fan ( which I can't attach properly to show the image because the uploader doesn't work (either of them) on my computer. Problem is that the fan is over $800! I'd like to combine a bunch of pieces and make something like this out of old desk fans and a nice light fixture (or something I can turn into a nice light fixture) to both save money and spare our landfill.  Thing is, although I get lamps and they are very easy, once you add moving parts I am scared sh!tle$$!   I figure there has to be someone out there who knows if it is even possible to recreate this at home. Thanks Joelle

Twins Separated At Birth Met And Married

Http://;_ylt=AoZvBFiQ44VpuITp2zqX9sWs0NUEI know it's not really what iBles is about... but I couldn't resist posting it.Here is the article from Yahoo! News:Fri Jan 11, 2:33 PM ETA couple discovered after they had married that they were twins who had been split up at birth and adopted by separate families, according to a member of Britain's House of Lords.British peer David Alton recounted the story to parliament last month to support his argument that artificially conceived children should be told who their biological parents are.Alton said he had heard the story of the separated twins from a High Court judge who had dealt with the case."This did not involve in vitro fertilization: It involved the normal birth of twins who were separated at birth and adopted by separate parents," said Alton, an independent member of the Lords. "They were never told that they were twins.""They met later in life and felt an inevitable attraction, and the judge had to deal with the consequences of the marriage that they entered into and all the issues of their separation," he said."I suspect that it will be a matter of litigation in the future if we do not make information of this kind available to children who have been donor-conceived," he said.Alton could not immediately be reached for comment and no further information was available about the twins or where they were from."I think it's a very tragic story for the people involved," said Pam Hodgkins, head of a group that helps adults affected by adoption."It is a lesson that we need to learn and apply to the situation of donor-conceived children," she told Sky News."Whilst ... nowadays it would be most unusual for siblings to be separated ... the risk of secrecy affecting the lives of people born as a result of egg and sperm donation is exactly the same as the risks that have affected adopted people in the past," she said.

Is it possible to convert an old twin lens camera into a digital camera?

Would it be possible to take an old twin-lens reflex into a digital camera? My idea would be to take an old TLR and gut it then take a pocket sized digital camera and stick it inside. I would probably take apart the digital camera so I can position the LCD where the view finder would be. Anymore ideas?  I really like the look of the older TLRs and wish there were digital ones. There's a 5mp miniature one, but that's not the same "/. And I know the second lens wouldn't be used, but I still like the look.

how to modify a twin window fan for easy cleaning

Hi, I was given a twin window fan which works just fine but is dirty (dirt and a fair number of ex-gnats).  The manual is no help as it says to wipe the exterior with a damp cloth.  I thought it would be a simple job to just take out the 12 screws holding the two halves together but unfortunately the off-high-low levers (one on each side) are preventing me from separating the two halves.  I can't see any screws holding the lever mechanism in.  I tried rotating one side 90 degrees to see if I could slide the lever out through it's slot but it's too fat. I've had other twin window fans with the same set up and never could get them opened up.  It annoys me that the manufacturers make it so difficult to clean these fans.  I think a fair number of people have this problem and just give up as the local thrift store gets these fans in all the time.  I'm thinking of using my dremel with the cutting wheel and somehow slice off the lever knob.  It would mean we would have a shorter lever on one side but we can live with that.  The lever is kind of wobbly and I'm trying to figure out how to hold it steady without having my fingers so close to the cutting wheel. I know this is a really small problem but it really bugs me that something that should be so easy is difficult.. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Water Rocket Launcher- High PSI twin rocket racers.

Ever wanted to know how to build a twin water rocket launcher? Have some expert advice on hand? Feel free to comment and help build a full metal, high PSI twin launcher. I am looking for assistance/advice you may wish to input. I was hoping to build a substantial base for launching multiple water rockets. It has a quad manifold so further expansion is possible. As you can see from the parts, it is very simple. I still need to add a isolating valve to stop water back flow into my pump (which will be located at the end cap, after the gate valve. The release mech has yet to be designed also. Australian gardena hose quick connects are the base for this rockets release system. I hope that is not too confusing. If it is, ask and I will clarify my babblings. Thanks for the assitance

How to make privacy tent/curtain for twin sized bed?

I'm on the Disney College Program and I have 5 flatmates and I'm sharing a room with 2 other girls. I need some privacy. The girl who got the bottom bunk was able to put up blankets around to make her own little place and the girl on the top bunk is pretty hidden away. My bed is the twin sized bed next to the window in the corner. The bed is in the corner with the head of the bed against one wall and the left side against the other wall. I can usually figure out a lot of DIY's but this one is tricky. I can't put any holes in the walls. At. All. So no screws, nothing that is going to leave permanent marks or mess up the paint. I looked in to those prop up bed tent tings but the ones geared for dorm rooms are $120. Nope. Not happening. I even thought about getting one of the pop up bed tents for kids. I don't care about the design so long as there was a way I could have some privacy. I get mixed reviews on whether someone of about 5'2" could sleep in one. I was thinking I could put the huge command hooks (already looked into it, these are approved by housing) in sideways on the two walls, add some type of dowel/rod to the bottom right of the bed. From there I could put some type of cord, or dowel, in between and hand hang some type of dark fabric from it. Thoughts????

My old unit hase 10 shelves,and they are is bad shape. which means I would need 20 brackets, at $6.00 each, $120.00 is too much money.

I am in Australia and I wish to wire in an exhaust fan to my fluro light operated by the one switch. Answered

The switch has a red wire and a white wire leading to the fluro light. The fluro has twin and earth (red, black and green) leading from a previous light in another room and another exiting to the next light in the house. The fan has two wires, a brown and a blue. I attempted to parallel the wiring by connecting the blue to red and brown to white. Once the fuse was turned on, the fan operated automatically and the light flickered without the switch being turned on. I reversed the wiring (brown to red and blue to white) with the same result. Logic failed me. Given that it is two wires on the fan (pos and neg I assume) I figure I am better parelleling to one of the twin and earths, but which one? Electricians charge a minimum of $240 per hour here, with a minimum of 1 hour charge, regardless of it being a 2 minute job. All connections are 240V. Wire joins will be completed using BP connectors.
