Stains: specifically, how to remove MUSTARD stains

I have JUST NOW dumped an entire sardine (in mustard sauce) onto my white work shirt while having my meal at work, and the standard "damp cold water on a paper towel and a dry one underneath dabbing like crazy, didn't work. I know there are commercial stain removers out there, but I would love to have a small bottle of something easy to make (or just something that needs no alteration, but does the job) handy for such incidences. Any ideas? (I DID do a google search, but would LOVE to know if any of the ideas worked for anyone personally; ;-)

Repair of a bi-pin light base

I'm trying to repair my outdoor post light.  The bi-pin bases have rusted.  I purchased new bases and went to rewire the light, but there are some difficulties in doing this.  It would be incredibly easy if I was able to remove the wires from the new bases, connect them to the power wires, then reattach the base.  The pin slots don't appear readily removable, however, and the piece is put together with rivets, so taking it apart and reassembling it would be...  not so easy. I was just wondering if anyone has attempted this and has any tips. Thanks!

Bolt Action Rotary Magazine Gun (updated with internals)

Alright, it's been a while, forgive me. I work in spurts of an hour or two every few nights. It's not quite finished, but it's at a point I'm comfortable showing. I'm also working with BM, so hopefully he can make some improvements on it before it's posted. This gun is the combination of two different goals I've had. First off, I always wanted to make a bolt action. I came up with the idea for the modern bolt action long ago but was beaten to the punch. So since then, as others have made their own bolt actions, I still struggled to make one up to my own standards. I wanted something sleek and compact with a removable magazine. Second, I went off on a little tangent while building, which then turned into its own project: a rotary magazine. While it's been done before, I don't know if it was ever successfully used in a gun. It's more about the novelty than the practicality, but what it does do is give you more storage in a compact design and act as a decent foregrip. I wanted to make it a decently usable. At first I thought of making just some cruddy gun to show off the concept as a usable magazine, but then I decided I may as well go the full nine yards and make it perform well. So this is what I ended up with. I don't have a real name for it yet, but I've considered calling it the Barackuda, a portmanteau of Barack (Obama) and barracuda because...well why not. I wanted to keep it as compact as possible, so I used a barrel similar to my Oodassault 3 series and a stock connection similar to my PDR. The stock is a bit long compared to the body of the gun, so it may look awkward, but I wanted to give at least enough room to aim the gun without sticking the pin into your eye. The blue connectors in the stock stop the bolt right after the trigger engages. The bolt is somewhat typical. I like how it sits flush with the back of the gun rather than looking like an extension on the back of it. The handle isn't amazing, just a variation of my tried and true handle I've come to like. The trigger also isn't amazing, and in hindsight, I want to block a bit further back still, but it works for the limited space I've got. The magazine on the other hand is magical. Go look at my last topic for details on its operation. This version is for yellow rods. I've added a rotary lock and band. When the middle rod is pushed toward the trigger (like in the pic), it's locked. It can securely contain 10 usable yellow rods while locked, though it can load up to 12, the top 2 can fall out. You insert it into the gun by pressing the top two red rods at an angle into gaps in the grey connectors at the front, then rotate the magazine, slightly pushing in, until you get the white rod in the gaps of the yellow connector. Finally, you push in the middle red rod by the trigger all the way forward to unlock the magazine. Edit (9/10/2015): Made my adjustments and now I'm mostly satisfied with the weapon. Here's the video.

New Light Fitting Smells Of Fish When Hot

Hi, I have just fitted a new light fitting. After it gets hot (60 Watt filament bulb) The room smells of fish. I believe that the smell is coming from the hot plastic, probably from the plastic that holds the shade in place. I don't want to reduce the wattage, The label on the connector says it is rated for 100 Watts. How can I get rid of the fish smell? Thanks

Hi-Cap horizontal magazine concept

Here is a concept I came up with a while ago. Basically, it is just a mechanism that allows a normal grey connector mag (I.e. One that would be used vertically) to be used horizontally, and so solving the problem of the low capacity of traditional knex horizontal magazines. However it is not without issues. The model used in these pictures is rather large, and there is an issue where the pusher cannot push the last connector out fully. Anyway, I thought I'd just I'd post this so if anybody is interested, they can use this concept and/or improve it so all issues are fixed. Just make sure to give me credit pictures: 1) overview  2/3)  overview of the mechanism 4) the red rod blocks the rotating mechanism so that no ammo falls out when not in use. Pull it out to initiate feeding

Old hobbies die hard... some TRs

I had a lot of old pics to work off of so the building experience was a lot like what I remember loving about knex, without the frustration. This blaster (:>) has a pretty solid mech. The slide, anchored by the gray connectors on the naked black rods (hehe), requires the full motion to prime, resulting in the longest pin draw possible using this draw/anchor method. The pin I have on this has a rubber washer of sorts that I had laying around, so far working wonders. No broken pieces were required, though I slid a broken black rod that was conveniently the perfect length into the barrel construction. As I mentioned in the title, I built this just yesterday and I expect that it'll be further modified -- the grip was something I had lying around and could essentially just throw on, the stock was rushed. I was planning on building another and I'd be happy to make instructions if there's any demand, though these pics alone may be enough for the few of you. (8/24/15) Link to better quality pictures, really unimpressed by what got uploaded here... https://imgur.com/a/4y1Se Credit to KILLERK for the TR of course. I just gave it a new body. Update 8/25/15: 3D printed a piece for the front of the barrel. Update 8/27/15: Small changes all over. I'm okay with the front grip. There's some mole skin on the handle. Changed the below pictures to reflect what I currently have, clearer pics in the imgur album. Update 8/31/15 Finally got around to classing up the stock, quite happy with how it turned out. A few other changes as well, updated the pictures once more. Should be able to build from these pics!

New K'nex wheel design

I've been working on a new ball machine for a few years and finally decided to tear it down and start anew; one thing I did save was this wheel. It uses chain for a rim to make a "perfectly" circular wheel. With grey rods on every rim connector it is quite heavy, in my ball machine I used a delay to send 3 balls onto it at once to make it spin nicely. If you want you could only use once white connector and 8 grey rods to make a lighter frame that would spin well with only one ball on it. Peace! ~IaC

MGS5's iDroid - Can it be Built with Open Source Tech?

I can't get enough of Metal Gear Solid 5! It definitely deserves the 10/10 scores its received! But as cool as it would be to have a giant robot or even a Walker Gear that you and/or your enemies can pilot, I think the coolest thing to have from the game would be the "iDroid". If you havent played "The Phantom Pain" or "Ground Zeroes", the iDroid is a device Snake uses for multiple purposes. Some include: sending radio trasmissions and calling in supply drops or helicopters between the iDroid's location and Mother Base, Displaying a topographical satellite view of the area Snake is in, Organizing Mother Base staff, resources, R&D; projects, and playing music from cassette tapes found while on missions, Just to name a few. (bold font is to differentiate the uses) So is it possible to build a similar device using the open source technology of today? (minus the use of cassette tapes and a 2D holographic projection screen) I'm pretty confident that it can be done, but what do you guys think? (btw i also have the same topic in the Tech section, cuz i figured that would fit well probably)

Waterlogging in basement

Hello, So I recently moved house, and I'm setting up my workshop in the basement, but there is a bit of a water problem. The water table in the area is high, and the basement is about halfway below the surface of the ground, so whenever it rains a lot, the place turns into an indoor wading pool. The water seems to have even come almost a foot up, judging by the stains on the walls. The plumbing here was done a bit poorly, A sump was dug right under the room, and ground water leaks into it and into the room through the trapdoor, flooding it. In order to rectify this, the owners decided to make another sump, and have a small motor pump water out of that sump into a gutter outside. So if the first groundwater sump overflows, then the water drains into the second sump, from where it is pumped outside into a gutter. I'm not certain how effective the second sump system is, since it was built after the foot high flooding, and I haven't seen it at work. Is there any system I can build to help contain and prevent the flooding? and any methods of waterproofing my storage cabinets and drawers? I can't do any permanent or major modifications to the room, as this is only a temporary arrangement. Thank you for taking the time,

Plumbing Help

Help! We just moved into a new house and the water pressure seemed pretty high, especially at the bathroom sink (it sprays everywhere when turned on full).  I tested the pressure at an exterior hose bib and it measured at 81 psi.  It also measured at 79 psi at the cold water supply valve for the washing machine.  I sent the pictures listed here to my father-in-law, who seems to believe that I can adjust the pressure with the current plumbing system.  I looked everywhere for a pressure regulator in the line, but couldn't find one.  The only thing I can think of is that he believes the gray valve above the meter is a glob valve and can be used to throttle down the pressure.   Any help would be appreciated!

Knex Safe (TGKTR2 Entry)

Alright! This is my safe. And a safe safe it is too! Me and a few other people noticed the irony of a knex safe, because you could just take it apart. Not so with this one! I made it with stupidly thick and Hard-to-take-apart walls, so as you would really need to work to get it open. The only piece you could break off are the pistons coming out the side, but then you've ruined the mech, and it wont work at all. However, there is a snag. The actual pin that goes into the door could not be finished on time. Everything else is here though, and I hope to get it finished up very soon. Sorry about that! The deadline sneaked up on me...

I had spray starch in the kitchen and the weather changed here, its humid and suddenly there are flies in the house.  i dont like to swat them and leave that to clean up;  by chance i used the starch, it took some effort to target them but it worked.  i did this last nite, today the 2 i sprayed apparently shook it off were not hurt, so anyone who wouldnt want to hurt a fly could spray them with starch, put them out and there is no  mess to clean and nature can do what nature does.

Plz post dat ***!) a hammer gun that gets some f-ing range for once (we're talking 35-40+ ft without needing glued parts) Some ideas I've come up with that I haven't seen (and haven't made either...) are: enclosed trebuchet (probably spelt wrong, but google wanted me to say "Bucharest" so I'm just going to leave it as is) (an arm picks up a round at the back of it's arc, then comes forward like a hammer but doesn't rely on impact for round firing but acceleration instead) newton's compound cradle: a pin comes forward and hits a shuttle out of a catch, with that shuttle being pulled forward by bands so you have the impact acceleration, then even more from the other bands switchback: a pin comes towards the user, hits the bottom of a lever (hammer) which comes forward and hits the round If you come up with others, or mechs for these, please comment with your idea! Thanks, and let the innovation continue :)

How can I get my dog to stop scratching himself?

My dog Scooby has been scratching himself a lot lately. We put flea stuff on him but it didn't really help. Usually he scratches the same spots so he gets sores. I don't know what to do about it and it must really be uncomfortable. What can I do?

Help!! Home Media- 4K, digital auto, remote placement

Hey! So I started renovating my living room and it's going much faster than i anticipated. I also upped the scope to move the TV and media items, and to do the professional job of wall jacks for everything so cables are hidden. I'm in a wall and nearly ready to do new drywall, so I need help planning this part I hadn't anticipated! Requirements: -Have media center placed in the corner, about 50' (as cable runs) away -potentially 4 HDMI items 4K ability for xbox, ps (50-60 fps) digital audio for surround sound that will be wired (I'm an audiophile, so I'd prefer optical to do it the best) other things I haven't thought of that will help keep the hard wiring relevant for the next 5-10 years I can: Run conduit for easier/future cable routing place wall jacks as needed behind the tv and in the media corner Like I said I didn't anticipate doing this at the same time, so I don't have a plan and need help. I wish I had time to search and learn the ins and outs, but what I've seen are HDMI splitters, signal degradation, wireless transmitters that only do 1080p, and fiber optic cable that is expensive. Does anyone have experience with this, or have a referral that I could post this on a different forum? Thank you in advance!!!
