What sort of multiple tool do I want if I'm planning to work a bit with thin plastic, cardboard or maybe Plexiglas?

Um i'm thinking of putting a cheap LCD display digital alarm clock in a small hardcover book with the LCD and buttons popping out of the cover, DO you think this is a good Idea? I think it will be good for the competition because it reuses two things, a unwanted book, and a lame looking digital clock. Both of which would be thrown out by any sensible person. PS I looked and this hasn't been done before. Please post suggestions and comments.

My buddy has an early 90's BMW...the model number slips my mind. It's jet black, but for reasons unknown, the front hood's clear coat has faded considerably. I was planning to simply mask everything and use some DuPont Clear Acrylic lacquer that I picked up at an Advanced Auto Parts store nearby; then buff it out later with polishing compound. Am I missing anything? It's completely rust-free, no dents etc. Thanks.

I want to make like an 8-foot tall Halloween costume based on a movie character from the 1980's or 1990's. Any ideas and how you would go about building those ideas? I was thinking a giant Statue of Liberty from Ghostbusters 2 but I did Ghostbusters last year...so something fresh would be great. My only caveat is that it needs to make sense to be about 8 foot tall... I want to experiment with making a giant costume this year. Thanks!

Extreme Art to save one of the best forest parks (Cabral’s forest park), in the city of Vigo, in Galicia -Spain-: Rock music video "A" (BEN SENMEDO). We made it also with free software (Kdenlive - Manjaro, end format WebM, audio Ogg) and the song is in Gallego, a language that we speak in the NorthWest of Spain. Actually, the place chosen to make the videoclip, known as "Monte de Cabral" or "Cotogrande", has serious risks of being destroyed, because of the complicity of the mayor of the city, Abel Caballero, with the Britsh corporation Eurofund. The mayor and the corporation want to convert the forest park into a commercial macroproject that they try to call "Porto Cabral". With this video, we hope anyone can enjoy the forest park forever: Letter of "A" in English: In this black horse I'm going to walk between the rain, they fall disks and seas cry out victory. I listen to the ripple of the good souls still death, for me it will never be late, when the fight will be good. I rush forth at the bad management of the power, I leave the jewels, I choose only the pieces of chess. One night, any day, waiting. One night, any day, waiting. People are not silly sheeps, we mount horses, we take the bridles. The souls without fear ever win the larvas, I don't tremble with idiots, you will never see flights. Music: BEN SENMEDO Voice and guitar: Ben Bass: Kuko Jones Black horse: Melanita Rider girl: Olalla De la Iglesia Screen and edit: Alma de Libertade and Muchamufa Colaboration: Edu

I am planning on going to Maker's Fair Detroit. I have never been before. I had some questions, and I figured this would be the best place to ask. So, here they are. 1.) What can I expect? i.e. what/who will be there, how big is it, ect. 2.) If you have been there, what are your favorite things to see? 3.) Anything else fun to do in Detroit, or good restaurants? 4.) Are any of you fellow instructablers going? Thank you in advance, and I hope to see you there! -Splazem

I have windows on my 3rd floor that are PLEXIGLASS, because of the unique window design(s), and they are FROSTED GLASS SPRAYed for privacy reasons but now it's time to change this idea and remove it all, SAFELY. Problem is: Keep in mind that it's Plexiglass, a petroleum based product and using the wrong remover can, potentially, destroy it. I hesitate to TEST-AREA as if it does, the plexiglass is damaged for life. My objective is the TRIED AND TRUE method(s). Thoughts??

Question by killimangnome | last reply
I have recently decorated my living room with three wall sconces that hold tealights. Each sconce holds eight tealights (see attached similar picture.). I am currently using battery powered tealights for safety. It looks nice - but each tealight is turned on individually with a switch on the bottom. It takes just too darn long to turn on the two dozen lights one at a time. I am seeking some way to turn all the lights on and off with one centralized control. My first choice would be some sort of wireless remote control. I have found some remote controlled tealights I could buy - but they are way too expensive ($10/ea). I thought about replacing the tea lights altogether with a light string. An extra advantage to this might be to connect to wall power or one longer lasting battery which would save having to replace many little tealight batteries over time. However this would be OK only if I could hide the wires out-of sight. All the light strings I've found so far have wires too thick to hide, They come in sets of ten lights or more - and I don't know what would I do with the extra lights on the string. Any ideas?
