Someone said that winning is not by votes alone, so does this mean we could have a low number of votes and still win a contest? I am confused, lol

Any ways to make a motorized Blind?

Any ways to make a motorized Blind? Saw someone on instructable made one, but without instructions. I read somewhere, someone mentioned to go SOMFY SYSTEMS INC and read about motor and cord take-up system that fits into the existing blind headrail. But SOMFY SYSTEMS INC mentioned the specs and not on how to do it. Now i am kind of lost. As a beginner, i am only at this stage. This is what i found.   www.distel.co.uk/DC_MOT_CON1.htm  I need to know what kind of DC motors with what voltage and power, can roll up a blind. Wonder will a 12V DC motor with 30rpm do the trick? Thanks!!!

Alternative ways to create a one-way mirror?

Hello, I'm creating a video installation with rear-projection. I want the viewer to see his reflection and the projection so I was thinking of half-silvering Mylar or acetate to create a screen. I also thought of mixing aluminum powder with a clear medium and painting it on however, no luck finding that in Canada.  My only issue with silvering the screen is that it is so large (10x5ft) that I don't know how to go about heating it up when I pour the solution over it.  Looking for suggestions for other materials as well as solutions to these issues. Thanks!

a way to harden styrofoam? Answered

I have been working on a metal mechanical iris for a while now and have been looking for a few things, but one thing that has me scratching my head is having a base, or cam wheel. its just a circle with grooves in it. i decided to use plain styrofoam for this so it will be lightweight and easy to cut, but when i tried it the cam wheel easily crumbled with enough force applied. is there any way to harden styrofoam with a spray or something of that sort? it needs to be somewhat slidey, so it can move well, so nothing like a rubber spray.

Two-way hinges

My wife and I bought an 80s designed house that's not that well designed. We keep one of the litter boxes for our cats in the garage, which is accessed from the inside through the laundry room; and we want to install cat doors so our aging felines can pass through the doors easily to get to it, while keeping the draft from the garage out of the family room. The interior door (between family and laundry rooms) is a standard hollow core and the exterior door (between laundry and garage) is fire code rated solid wood door.  We tried a standard top-hinged door with the cats already, at our old apartment, and the cats didn't take to it, so we we're hoping to do french doors, since they know how to get through normal doors pretty well. But we're kinda stuck on our lack of knowledge about hinge designs; we need hinges that swing both ways. Has anyone out there successfully completed such a design/installation and would be willing to share pics and secrets?

Fishing the traditional way

A while ago I had a very bad day of fishing in terms of catching something for my frying pan or freezer.Same story for the old bloke sitting a few meters away from me.So we decided to pass some time with useless chats about our previous record fish we caught.While the old bloke changed bait I noticed that he did not have a hook at the end of the line.....What is that contraption and how do you catch fish with it?Old bloke laughed and said he goes hunting a lot too and always keeps the antlers from deer and such.Instead of a hook he used a round and pointy bar with a little notch slightly off the middle.Couldn't figure out how this possibly could hook a fish, so got a bigger laugh for it this time :("Make a loose fist, put it in and then pull on the line." he said and I was dumb enough to assume it would not work :(Figure it out by getting two bleeding pricks...Fish swallows the "stick" inside the bait and one there is some pull one pointy end will always get stuck.The other moves until there is no room to move anymore and the fish is spiked up for good.Only downside is that one you get a fish too big it might not grab - bad luck then LOLThis approach instead of steel hooks reminded me of the bamboo fishing poles my grandfather used to make.Be it for eel, trout, carp or even from the boat for pollock and sardine - he loved his bamboo.Even made me my fisrt fly fishing rod from a piece of bamboo :)The old guy however had more than hand made rods or horn needles as hooks.When his hands were still as good as his eyes he even made flies from these horn sticks!He explained the process to me but I never had the patience for normal flies and doing this with horn sticks and estimating how big the biggest fish might be while making sure it is neither too heavy nor fails to float...What I really liked about this otherwise wasted fishing day was the stories I got from the old man."You don't need fancy or oversensitive gear to fish, a safety pin and some packing coad do just fine if you are hungry!"Best story was how he caught a 2m gummy shark with a hand line meant to catch some sardines for bait.I could really his 3 hour struggle to get the thing on board LOLWhat are your most successfull old school or just plain weird catches with something a real sports fisherman would not even touch to cast?

Best ways to get free access to a metal shop

So im looking for ways that people are able to get access to metal working tools for quick projects for free. All I need to do is just turn a flashlight body on a lathe and make the inside of the body 18.5mm (from 16.5mm) so that i can fit 18650 size batteries. I was thinking maby I could call up a metal shop and ask to machine the body if I help clean up the shop at the end of the day or see if I could find someone in my area with a lathe. If anyone has any ideas or proven ways to get quick metal projects done please post away.
