Switching Circuit

Hi, I want to build a Auto-Switching circuit. I would appreciate if you could help me on circuit. Sorry for my ignorance in circuit design. There are two power sources A and B. The A is 12v and B is 3v.I would be utilizing the power from A only when B is turned On. So an auto switching circuit is required in this scenario. The circuit should sense if B is On, if so it should let A On.

Semi auto

OK my Dad took a hand-gun safety coarse and he got to use a Semi Auto, He learned how it was semi auto. when you cock it once it loads a bullet and the firing pin is pulled back. Bang you fire! the the recoil from the gun re-cockes the gun!and you fire and so on!

Worlds First Fully auto K'nex Gun

This is a fully auto k'nex gun. yes i said fully auto. and it actually is fully auto. the pics should explain how it works. its clever because the more elastic bands you put on it the more friction it creates. ive got it just right so the ratio is perfect. ***UPDATE***Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-6LPtUgZvA

auto printing?

I need help and I'm hoping I've come to the right place. I consider myself fairly computer compitant however I'm having a hard time find a resource to learn this little trick. Basically I'm trying to make something print everyday at 730am so when i walk in the office in the morning i can grab it from the printer and get to work instead of waiting for the secretary to hopefully get there at 8am and hopefully print it by 830. It's and excell file (ns that it really matters.) If any one knows a simple macro or a setting please let me know. thanks.

Auto body help

I need some help here and I hope that there is someone that can answer this question. I have a 2003 Toyota Tacoma and I want to add some bigger fender flairs on the truck, I want to use what are called pop rivet nuts. The pop rivet nuts are inserted just like a pop rivet but it has a nut on the back of it so that you can use a small bolt. The screws that came with the fender flairs are called self tapping screws and they seem to wallow out after time. I need to know what the thickness of a typical fender is so that I can order the right pop rivet nuts. The pop rivet nuts only come in sizes for gauge metal. Does anyone know what gauge a finder is so that I can order the right pop rivet nuts. Thanks for any input.

Automatic Power Switch

I am looking for someone who is McGuyver-like and able to show me how to build an outlet that allows me to plug in a power tool like say a miter saw and a shop vac. When the outlet senses a power draw from the saw, it`ll power the vacuum to start as well then when the miter is stopped so will the shop vac. I know Craftsman makes this very switch ( http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00924031000P?keyword=auto+switch ) however since it cannot be brought in to Canada, any makers out there?

I'm sorry for saying this...

Okay, first off... I realize that just lately i've being saying I've made/I'm making certain guns, the reason i haven't posted any is because they either look messy, or aren't very good at all, now to make up for that, i am going to make a fully auto, and it will fire elastic bands ( to see if it will work) then i will put a magazine on it, if my friend comes online on msn tonight i i can speak to him, and then if he comes around tomorrow then i will work on it with him

Can someone jog my memory? (K'Nex)

Does anyone remember a specific fully automatic gun? It looked like a magazine in and of itself. You fired it by pressing on a rod protruding from the bottom. It fired dark grays. If anyone remembers it and knows where to find it, please link me to it. Thanks, DrWeird

Creating a USB program

Hello forums, I was wondering if anybody knew of a program that could do the following via USB. I have pet chickens that need feeding multiple times a day. I wanted to make a USB device that I could plug into my computer, and when I push a button in the program, it activates the USB port which is connected to my feeder. I don't need any help with making the feeder, it's just being able to run it on demand. Thanks in advance.

Brighter headlights?

Hey all! I drive a 1984 BMW 318i (that's the E30) with the standard H1 bulbs for the low and high beams (4 x H1 in total). I want better visibility at night and have been looking at options. Can anyone help with the following: 1. do i have to use high wattage bulbs to see a significant difference or would "upto 90% more light" 55W osram bulbs help? I would hate to spend the money on the 55W osrams only to end up with 5 extra lumens. 2. am i correct in saying that ALL xenon bulbs require the whole ballast and starter setup like fluorescents? are there some that don't? 3. Is there anyone who has used a high wattage bulb? what are your experiences? is the shorter life worth it? where on the continuum of wattage VS lifespan would you recommend? Right now I'm leaning towards the high wattage option, something like 80-100W. MY local hardware doesn't stock these and I doubt my local auto-electrical supplier would either. I'm thinking I may have to do some digging, maybe 4x4 accessory stores would have them since they are technically only meant for offroad use. K thanks, your help is much appreciated, I'll try to post an 'ible of old VS new and the installation procedure once I decide on the bulbs.

Knex Semi-Auto Handle Mag Pistol

I said to Mepain "I'm going to make a semi-auto pistol with a magazine in the handle". 45 minutes later I took this picture.I'll call it: SALSAS**** A** Lame Semi-AutoYes, this is a TRUE semi-auto Knex gun. You pull the trigger and it shoots, then repeat. The magazine is in the handle and it shoots gray connectors. Range is 5-10 ft, so it's not going to win any wars.Discuss.

Semi-Auto Revolver Is Finally Posted

Well, now I am out of work I'm finally posting it despite its faults (which I'm sure someone can fix). So I should get it posted this week all being well. It fires oodammo, white and blue rods, the range I have not tested as it varies on the bullet locks (which are worn on mine) but it is probably only around 20 feet. The trigger pull is heavy and occasionally painful if you follow through, but who cares it's freakin' semi-auto!! :D. E VOILA!  https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Semi-Auto-Revolver/

Semi-Auto Knex Rifle.

I've been working on this gun a long time while bouncing ideas off Mepain. It's a TRUE semi-auto in the fact that all you need to fire a shot is to put the piece in the gun and pull the trigger. I was able to unload a full magazine in less than 10 seconds. I'm a lot more likely to post instructions on this gun than the last two, because this gun works so nicely.Holds 13 shots.Shoots up to 40 feet.Shoots grey connectors.

An idea that mite make knex semi auto.

For the average knex gun, you need to cock it everytime you pull the trigger. couldnt you get a giant fat spring that could act as extra recoil? if you made a gun with a short firing pin and a few bands, with a strong and long spring, dont you think it might be able to be semi auto? If it did work eventually afta about 5 bullets the power would be lost. but still it could work? maybe not sure.

Charged me a pro membership auto-renewal instead of one of the free ones I have.

"Upcoming Memberships The below membership(s) are gifts you've redeemed. They are waiting for your current one, above, to expire (on Jul 3, 2013). When this happens the next membership will automatically take effect, you won't have to do anything." I did nothing, and today there is a $23 charge to my debit card.  I take it that the auto-renew feature had to be turned off?  That's my guess, but a detail I didn't know about!  I need it to do what it said it would do, and use my memberships.  This mistake came at a very inconvenient time.  I need a refund, please!  Duggerpato

In-car computer (PC)

I want to put a PC in my car as a media source for music/podcasts, movies for the kids, park and surf at hotspots, etc. Has anyone done this? I have an older laptop that I can use/sacrifice, or should I get a small pc case? Things I want to do: #Can I hook it up to the "key on" power to boot when I start the car. #The laptop battery is weak and only gives power to the laptop for a few minutes (about 15 minutes then just enough to shut down) #Disconnect and relocate the screen or install a touch screen #Roof-mount (magnetic base) hi gain wi-fi antenna #the in dash stereo has RCA/mini-jack inputs for sound #I'm good with cars and computers. I can replace an axle as easily as a hard drive. I'm not afraid of getting greasy or soldering on boards. In other words, I believe I am up for the challenge Any help or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. peace, Scott
