I'm going to buy usb arduino board, some leds , breadboard and some other stuff and I would like to ask a couple of questions.(I've never bought a thing on internet :S )I chose http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=666The shipment payment when do I pay for it (does it sum up with the items, or do I pay in mail office)?(PS. I live in Lithuania) What does this mean : First Class Mail International Package $3.44 NOT TRACKED, NOT INSURED "NOT TRACKED, NOT INSURED"?and there's also International Economy (4-5 Days) $37.48which is really not attracting me because it would cost a lot (atleast it would for me ) and it would cost more then the item I'm buying.How long would it take to ship the items(2~3 weeks?)?Thanks for reading.Help would be really appreciated :)

I interested in purchasing your broken iPod Classics, iPhones, Videos, and Touches for a project. If they don't work, I want them. Working iPods steer clear, I'm interested in broken ones ONLY. Let me know what you have and I'll let you know if I can use it or not. I will pay with paypal

I'm endeavoring on an art project which basically consists of a motor attached to a mobile, though I'm quite illiterate when it comes to electronics. The motor that has a fair amount of torque, and I need to have precise control over the speed. Ideally, it should be quiet as well. I was thinking this might be a good time to venture into the foreign territory of Arduino and servos, but again I know nothing. Any advice or resources you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Lance

Hi there, I'm creating a simple circuit project for my students, though I don't know the first thing about electronics, so I foolishly bought tons of LEDS and 9V clips without the resistors - Doh! But now that I know I needs resistors, I'm not sure which type of resistors I need. A list like this is quite daunting to choose from. The LEDs I'm using need 1w resistors (I think...). Please feel free to ask my any questions or hand out other advice. Thanks! Lance

I've been looking at instructables and I notice all these awesome LED instructables... But my question is.. where do you guys get these awesome little lights? I tried looking for some on google but they don't have the correct shape and seem a bit different.. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough or not putting the right keywords in google but I thought it'd be nice if I had got some feedback of where everyone here gets their LED lights. Thanks :]

Hey Instructables, Due to an overwhelming "can I buy this?" response, I've put the Beer Bottle Lock on Quirky. Please spare 5 seconds and vote for it. If it gets a lot of votes, you'll be able to buy it through the site and I'll get a cut! And I'll buy you a beer... with a lock on it... Here's the Quirky link: https://www.quirky.com/invent/1529564/action/vote/query/view=trending&categories;=all Here's the instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Beer-Bottle-Lock/ Thanks!

Is there anywhere we can buy Instructables stickers? I know the old Yahoo store had them available, but that's gone now and there's only links to the spreadshirt store... which only does shirts.To quote Kiteman: You have stickers. We want stickers.

Tonnes of instructables are based on microcontrollers, and i can't seem to find any. I can't get anything off of the internet, so that does no count. by the way, i live in india. And I will appreciate any help, just reply even if you think it would not be very helpful, it might just be.

I have been trying to find a reasonably priced milling machine but also trying to find one that doesn't charge two times the price of the machine in shipping costs. I have been looking on Craigslist for the past six months and haven't seen anything. I am in Seattle, WA. Does anyone have any ideas of where I should look?

Hello everyone! I have been searching the web for a good source of aluminium pipe (between 1" and 2" thick) with threaded endings and matching fittings. Can anyone suggest a good source? Searching the instructables forums I read about www.simplifiedbuilding.com, but they don't seem to have threaded fittings (only of a slip-on, use-a-set-screw kind). Any suggestion greatly appreciated! Happy '09! James

Http://arduinoteacher.appspot.com/matrix_8.html Hello! And i am interested in starting arduino! But i am not familiar with the hardware spec of arduino boards. I have some electronics and programming bg as an physics student. I read the above tutorial, the led matrix looks like a easy/cool starter project. However, i have a question, For 4 by 4 matrix, it need 4 outputs and 4 grounds. With 14 i/o pins on an arduino uno (0to13), is 7 by 7 the maximum for upscaling this design without multiplexing? Or if i can get a "shield" that add more pins to the uno? Should i just get a arduino mega with 54 I/O pins? Since it is not that expensive, Is the tutorial compatible with a mega? Actually my target build is two 15 by 15 matrix displaying identical image. Can i rig up two identical led matrix, connect both in parallel to the same board? Thank you in advance! for your replies!!

The only one's listed on eBay are high end (fairly to extravagantly high priced) transformers. I just need a little 4 legged 500 ohm to 8 ohm audio transformer. All my catalogs seem to offer little help. No need for the C/T like the one pictured....

Looking for an inexpensive laser cutting/engraving system. I will be taking it apart and customizing it to fit onto another machine. Currently, we have a rotating blade to cut sheets of material, but this set-up causes many issues. A contact free solution would be best. So I want to mount the laser carriage above the cutting area; the rest of the laser parts will be contained in a metal cabinet under the machine. The laser would need to be able to travel 12-16 inches in 1-2 seconds and cut through 1-5 mil paper/poly material. I have a fair amount of experience with lasers, I have know how to sight them in and understand the technology. We currently have 45, 100 and 400 watt galvo head lasers, as well as a 90 watt XY laser set-up. So, what website would you direct me to, to purchase an inexpensive laser system?

I was looking through the discounts that pro instructables members get (which I am). I saw a 10% off your purchase from adafruit. It said that you can only use it once but I have never used it before. I was trying to buy an arduino uno, full sized breadboard, and breadboard wires. When I entered the code that I got (which I wont say on here but private message me if you need to know it) in the "enter gift certificates or discount codes" box in your cart it says invalid coupon code. Away from that, On the iOS app running iOS 6.1.6, there are many glitches in the app. One of them is that in the contest tab, it only shows some of the current contests, none of the finished and rarely it will show one that is being judged or open for voting only. Then it doesn't show all of the contests. For example, today, 6/30/14 at 4:30 pm Pacific time, It shows 15 out of 23 contests. It shows the contests: squeeze ore out of summer, Epilog 6, summer #mikehacks, paint it, great outdoors, lego, knex, metal, home tech, hair and makeup, concrete, glue, bbq, swimwear, and battery contest. The ones it doesn't show on the app that appear on the website are green design, launch it, wheels, outdoor workshop, bees, tarun featured author, r/c, and pallet contests. Some website problems are also there, Often times you will have to click search twice because the first time it will just go to the featured page. You also have to click twice to place a comment. I'm not sure if this is a bug but I posted a Q and A topic about how I haven't got a medal for different things like being featured and getting views and also comments. I've got one featured and about 13.5k views. I should have two bronze medals. In the Q and A topic someone answered that I might not be able to get them for a certain amount of time: e.g. a year, I've been a member for about six months, so I thought that might be true.Then I saw that Bhawya already has 6 achievements including 3 medals, and she has been a member for less time than me. Also, a suggestion, it would be nice to have forums, groups, and Q&A; on the iOS app. And a collections section.

Last I knew they used to have a book you could buy, you gave them a list of projects and they put it in the book for you and after buying the book, they would send it to you in color so that you could work on the projects. I've been in need of that book for some time, it's sorida a life and death matter. But not for a few years at least. So is the book still around to buy and could I buy it?

Hey Everyone! It's been a while, but I've been busy working on a new project called Marketplacr - a site where members of communities can buy/sell goods from/to each other. Think of it as similar to a site like Etsy, except geared towards techy/awesome Instructables users. I thought Instructables users would really enjoy a site like this, so I set up one of the first marketplaces for us. Sign up on the site, list items from your Instructables, and see what other users are selling stuff from their projects. Feel free to let me know about any problems/issues/suggestions/complaints :) http://marketplacr.com/Maker_Market/ And a how-to-use guide: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Sell-Components-from-your-ProjectsInstruct/

Good evening, I've recently been trying to purchase something on the instructables shopity store. If in understand the way this website works is that each shop adds clients to their customers list so that they can browse your products. My question is : Is there a link I missed? What can I do to see products online? I'm very confused about how this website deals with customers when the point is to sell products to the great audience of the internet.. I would appreciate a simple answer with instructions on how to access the instructables store. Thank you !

I just completed an order for a couple hundred LEDs and batteries that Instructables will be using at SXSW next week to make LED Floaties at PopSci's SXSW afterparty. I ordered them from Buy-LEDs-Online, a US distributor for the well written about HB Electronics. HB Electronics is the recommended vendor of LEDs for LED Throwies and LED Floaties. They ship direct from China, but unfortunately they were out of stock on their throwie packs. Buy-LEDs-Online helped me out by providing everything we needed with great phone and email support and super fast shipping. Robert from Buy-LEDs-Online was not only very helpful, but said that he knew of Instructables and that he uses the site to determine what products he should carry. So, if you're looking for LEDs for your next project, I highly recommend getting them from Buy-LEDs-Online.This is not an advertisement and my opinions are unsolicited. These are the words of [www.instructables.com/member/noahw noahw], LED purchaser, Instructables Content Producer, and debutante extraordinair.

A few years ago I started celebrating International Buy Nothing Day, which falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States (and the following Saturday everywhere else). I typically celebrate by going for a walk on the beach in the morning, and then spending the rest of the day eating leftovers and working on projects. I find it's a pleasant way to start the holiday season, and helps put the season in perspective. Using one of the busiest shopping days of the year to take pause and go out of my way not to spend money made me very conscientious of many of the absurdities of the holiday season. It also helped me become aware of all of the small transactions that I typically made throughout the day, and the importance (or frivolity) of each one. Another unexpected consequence was that it limited travel, and forced me to stay local to my neighborhood. This made me engage with my neighbors in a way that did not require spending money. Not to mention, there were no pushy crowds elbowing for deals, no parking spots to fight for, and no unbearable register lines created by poorly trained seasonal staff. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that all transactions are bad. If no one ever spent money, our economy would probably collapse pretty quickly. We can't all avoid spending money every day, but we can choose where and how we spend our money. After a few years of celebrating International Buy Nothing Day, I am much more likely to spend money with local businesses, and support local artisans and craftspeople. This decision was arrived at while I was strolling about aimlessly a few years ago, and noticed how empty some of the local stores were on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. It was my conclusion that local businesses needed my money much more than the ubiquitous large retailers I typically purchased from. After all, these stores are more likely to sell the wares of local makers, and are an important part of the DIY community. I highly encourage everyone to celebrate this holiday to the best of their ability. I understand that you may need to go get some food, or put gas in your car, but, if you can, try avoiding the magnetic pull of shopping malls and Amazon deals. Instead, I would encourage everyone to try spending International Buy Nothing Day crafting thoughtful gifts for people, reading a good book, playing board games with friends, or simply going for a walk. Have you ever celebrated this holiday? Do you think you might like to try? Do you have any plans to make your own gifts this year? What are your thoughts on this phenomenon?
