Tell us about yourself!
You must make sure you check the temp before letting kids near it the water can get hot enough to scold yourself. I have personally experienced one of them solar showers that you get from camping stores the water got that hot you could make coffee with it. I actually could not believe how hot the water got in a black plastic bag.
Totally agree that was the first i thought how out of balance it would be.
Here is a link to them they are actually grease less ball bearings. http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/gear/a15603/super-efficient-greaseless-bearings/
Yeah that's cool just suggestion for other people who are buying them. Have you seen the self aligning bearings that dont have the metal race inside just balls and the groove is machined in such a way that once they start spinning the balls have an equal space between them. Should look them up it's really interesting how they work. Anyhow good inscrutable, and i like the epoxy curing can. Have a good Day.
Mate you went to a lot of trouble for no reason why not just buy 3 sealed bearings and 1 unsealed would of saved the dismantling and degreasing stage. Just a suggestion.
In Oz you can have a 5ltr still which will produce 700ml of alcohol. Also if you dont treat the finished product with active charcoal you are crazy.
Really nice knife handle. But please loose the gloves when using the sander or any rotating machinery for that matter. Google degloving and you will understand why.
it's actually 12.7mm, or 1/2" (it's all been updated now) ....and the dowel is 1/3". Even though we are in Australia, all of the plumbing stuff is the same, we just get it in metric.
Sure add it to your 'ible when i did it i just drew a line on the dowel and slowly rolled the dowel along the table didn't put it in a drill worked really well.
Lonesoulsurfer you would not believe how happy I'm it works it works it works i love it when something you makes works. Great 'ible buy the way. Oh and by the way the best way i found to make the groove for the o ring was to snap a hacksaw blade i half and tape them together made the perfect size gap for me. My flat mate is making one as well so when we are finished we will upload some photo's.
lonesoulsurfer i have just been to bunnings and iam sorry to say that you have made a mistake with the size of the copper tube it is actually 12.7mm. have a look at the picture you posted in step 1 parts and tools and in the photo bottom left you can clearly see it says 1.5 x 12.7 x 0.19 straight copper tube. Every thing else fits perfectly including the 9.5mm Tasmanian oak dowel. So hopefully my fire piston will work as good as yours thanks for the great instuctable
You should move to Australia my denture's cost me exactly $0.00. We have a pretty good health ststem.
Ive been into hydroponics for years and the N.F.T. works best in rectangular pipe you get a much more even spread of the roots and more roots exposed to air. If you want really good growth your PH level is critical and for me expanded clay is the best medium as you can use it over and over but you have a good little set up. Happy growing
Hey not a bad project but iam a bit suss on these power banks have you actually tried them all because the one i brought from jb hifi in Australia doesn't work, you cant charge it and discharge it at the same time?
