Pictures cut off

I started writing a new Instructable and noticed that when I use the preview function the pictures are cut off and therefore weirdly off centre. For some of the pictures it doesn't really matter, but some like I said look weird (as shown in the pictures). I don't see why there is a need to cut the pictures. Is this just an error and will it look better once the instructables is published?

How to avoid CNC crashes

Hey.I am wondering if it is possible to define particular areas on the bed of my CNC machine which I do not want the toolhead to pass over. My setup is an Arduino powered CNC pen plotter running GRBL. I am generating GCode in inkscape. I know I can set a safe height for the tool to pass over work safely but what if that height doesn't suffice. Can I define an area that the tool must not pass through?As a simple example:Before running a file the tool is at the origin. On sending the file the tool will take the most direct path to the first line to cut/draw. Imagine there is an obstacle that would cause a collision if the tool takes this direct path. Can I do something to ensure the tool navigates around that obstacle?I hope that makes some sort of sense :)Any ideas appreciated

Measuring oscillation of a multi tool

I have a harbor freight oscillating multitool that is advertised as oscillating between 10k and 20k oscillations per minute. In reality to speed control goes from 0 opm to an unknown value. I’m trying to set the tool to oscillate at 35 Hz. What is the best way to measure the frequency of the tool and set it to 35 Hz?

ESP8266 Huzzah automated connection protocol

Hello guys! I would like to make a very small android app (or anything easy to use) so that at first :1. The ESP functions as a Wifi router in a local area (so no internet access) and allows anyone using a phone for example to connect to its network to enter the credintials of his home wifi2. The ESP board automatically changes to Wifi client and connects to the given SSID/ PAssword entered by the user. This would allow people to change ssid connections on a different wifi access point even if they don't know how to use any IDE. If anyone knows a tutorial or another topic with the same question i'd be happy to know ! Thanks

Fix the stubborn airplane mode in Windows 10

Since I got a Microsoft Update on pc, I got my airplane mode stuck to ON. I tried every possible solution provided by the internet but it got me nowhere. I tried troubleshooting it through Windows default troubleshooter, I went on to edit the registry files through registry editor, tweaked network and sharing centre but everything brought me nothing but failure.I had to reset my PC which uninstalled all of my installed programs, games and applications that were too important for me just because I thought this would set everything straight and I'll have my wireless connection back but again I got nothing out of it. You won't believe what actually the solution was. It was just a combination of the Function key and the Print Screen key that solved my problem. Earlier than this I used to have a wireless receiver to use the wifi as the inbuilt wifi was not working but this key combination enabled it and now I don't need any external wifi receiver to access the internet.

Skewed Contest Judging? Better Feedback?

Hello all, In recent contests, I've noticed that the judges seem to favor entries that require more expensive equipment, parts, or tooling, e.g. laser engraved parts, CNCs, and 3D Printers to name a few. As an entrant and community member who has none of these tools nor the budget to get them, I feel this is a bit skewed and not true to the open source spirit fostered here on Instructables. While I do agree that all of the entries that use the above should have an equal chance and are just as good as low-tech entries, I believe that more emphasis ought to be placed on projects that anybody can create without such tools or skills. I admit, I am a bit biased in this area of discussion, however, my point stands. Please tell me if I am making a wrongful accusation here.I would also like to see a feedback system put in place where the contest judges give a few pointers so entrants that did not win can improve their future projects and understand why their entry did not achieve a winning status. I feel that this would give an even more positive, community-friendly atmosphere to the site overall, instead of discouraging people who put a lot of work and time into their project and yet didn't even finalize. Has such an idea been considered? If so, why was it not instituted?- Dangerously Explosive

Challenge - RFID reader + Wifi Module Low Cost.

Hi Guys,I'm an Oracle Architect and I have one customer that want to monitor water dispenser, he wants to know if water bottle was changed. I have a software to control it, but actually the people need to input this data manually and I would like one solution to do it automatically. I'm thinking to use RFID Reader on water dispenser and paste passive tag on water bottle and with this I'll receive the information and this data must to be send using wifi, I can't have cable in this solution (data and power cable is not possible). In my investigation, I just find rfid reader (UHF) able read a passive tag in 1 meters distance, the issue is, the UHF module is very expensive, I saw UHF module for 40 USD and I need something more cheaper. Is there another way to do it? I need suggestions and help to developer it.If need more info, send me email.Regards, Haysar Lelis

Cheap amplifier board, what do all the connections mean please

I bought a cheap amplifier board based on the PAM8403 chiphttps://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B075L9TVHB/ref=cm_cr_r...most of the connections make sense, from top to bottom in the main picture, two speakers, then power, then sw and gnd, followed by the left right ground which I assume is stereo input.I have no idea what the SW and GND refer to, can anyone help me out here?

DIY Ethernet Hub

Ive been trying to figure out if they even exist. All I can find is information about ethernet switches which I dont need. I need my single ethernet in my room that goes to my xbox to also be able to go to my laptop so streaming my xbox isnt so laggy. My idea I came up with was making an extension in a way and then bridging that to another ethernet out. Check out my pictures. I now realize that whatevers in the first one that gets the info first takes the cake and then the second doesnt work. ANy ideas of what i can do or is this hopeless?

1. I am unable to post any images, the screen dims and nothing happens.2. I am unable to delete a post.3. I would love to be able to go back and edit a post - (EVEN Facebook allows this.)4. I (and several others ) would be more than happy to join a beta test groups working on bug catching in a sand box area and put the main site back to the last "working" version until most/all bugs can be resolved. - I am well qualified in this in that I was senior software test engineer in a previous existence and spent my time devising tests and finding bugs.

Problem - Reusing an image from the Library and editing it's tag edits all Instructables using that image

I don't know if this has always been this way, or it might be new, but I just noticed something that for me is a big issue.Sometimes I reuse images from my graphic library of images I've previously uploaded to Instructables for use in other tutorials. That sounded like a great feature. However, I just noticed that if I use the same image in two or more instructables (selected from the library), if I edit the text boxes in one, it modifies the text boxes in all of the images. What a disaster! Now I have no idea of what Instructables I've screwed up in the past thanks to this. Sometimes I might want an image for one reason, and later I might want to use it to call out a whole different issue.Please consider correcting this. I thought the point of the library was to avoid uploading duplicate content to Instructables servers. Now I'll have to upload the same image as many times as I need to reuse it, since by default I intend to use different call-out boxes (or however they are called on them).If I'm getting this wrong, and this bug is actually a feature, please let me know how I am interpreting this issue the wrong way

What happend to the favorites button.

OK Who's the idiot that's trying to justify there job with the site down grade and yes it is a down grade in my opinion. This site Instuctables is my go to place for how toes , wish I'd thought of that and to share ideas learn new skills. I spent a week trying to work out what was wrong with my computer. I thought there was a setting problem or graphics card problem only to find out that it,s not my end but your end with a format update.Where to start, how bout the endless white back ground. It burns my eyes after a few minutes. the pics are way to big. What happened to the favorites button ? I have over 1100 favorites saved . I save the posts I like for reference to make review build or cook latter. But this option seems to be gone. What I would like to see is some way to save my favorites in there categories like food workshop home outdoors this would help looking for posts easier to find instead of the random order they were saved in.Is there any way to go back to the old format and let your fans choose, like ( stay on old old format or up date to new format ) but with the option to go back to the old if you don,t like it. I know the sits may have some issues that i'm not a where off and you work hard behind the seens to keep everything running smooth. I think you went to far to quick. You may loose fan over this I mite be one of them. This all may sound very harsh and it's meant to I'm try to get my point across that i don't like the new format. I only say all this out of LOVE for this site. Please don't let it fall on deaf ears. thanks JIMWI

Stepper Motor Controller Problem

Received 3 new controllers from Ebay and swapped the new one for the borrowed one. Tried all 3 controllers and none worked. Any ideas on what`s wrong or should I just return them and buy 3 more from someone else?

I don't like the new popup bar to add instructables to my favorites

I use firefox and couldn't find a way to add an instructable to my favorites so that I can find it later. I tried with chrome and it was not apparent there either. Eventually I found that I could scroll down a bit and a bar would pop up and from there I could add to favorites and do other things. Why have this silly pop up bar that only pops up when you scroll the page to just the right spot? The buttons really don't take up that much room, just put them back on the page.

Treadmill DC Motor Control

Hi all,I have been given a treadmill motor by a friend, sadly none of the control boards have come with it, just the motor and a transformer bolted to the same bracket.I'm hoping someone can tell me the best way for a layman to hook this up for variable speed, as I would like to improve on my 1/4hp single phase motor currently attached to my lathe.I don't know much about the motor and could not find a datasheet, but a pic is attached.Is there any plug and play options that don't cost the earth, ideally i would like to be able to plug it into the mains (UK) and just control with a pot.As always thanks in advance, you guys make this place a great resource for us noobs.

6 multiservo random selection

Hi! I would like to create a project for the random selection of shooting targets. E.g. each target should show up and stay there for 5 seconds and if not shot down the servo should pull it back. Does anyone have the code required for random selection of servos and making sure they delay between on and off is 5 secs? Ideally the random component would ensure that all targets have an equal chance of being selected but only one at a time.

21 game

In the late '50's Popular Electronics magazine (out of print) published an article "building a rudimentary computer" It was called the Challenger. It was a circuit that could play the old parlor game of "21", and utilized a mechanical stepping relay to do the "computing". There was a series of 21 pilot lamps, with a 'player' and 'machine' pushbuttons. The player, and the machine, in turn, could light 1, 2, or 3 lamps, with the object being to avoid lighting the last, or 21st lamp. The machine would invariably win. The secret is that within the number 21 there are five groups of 4, with one left over. Whatever number the player selects, (1, 2, or 3) the machine then selects a number that, when added to the players choice, totals 4. (player 1, mach. 3 / player 2, mach 2/ player 3, mach. 1) It would seem that today's processors and LED's, could handle this task easily. Would you, or someone you know, be interested in designing such a circuit as a project? I built it back then but I'm afraid my knowledge is stuck back in that time and would need instructions remenicient of that era.
