I recently bought a Pyramid PTA150 1500 watt power amp, and its clipping led's always seem to be lit when my mixer is set to half volume or higher, even when the amp is unplugged. Could they be powered from the input voltage when it is high enough? Is it bad to push my amp when they are lit? and it has a high volume cooling fan so I dont think it will overheat when pushed.?

Could somebody post a picture of a standard clip for a nerf gun system with the exact dimensions shown (including the curved part just above the darts). In addition, how does the gun hold the clip in place?

Hi All This is my first post, so I apologise in advance if I've selected the wrong category for the post. I have an idea... I have a quad-copter at home that I'd like to attach a small light weight item and have it self release/open after 2-3mins. Ideally, either a small springloaded clip based on the rough image below or something similar, that is self opening after a selected timeframe, even after 1-2mins, or alternatively, a small lightweight mechanism that does the same thing. I've searched everywhere and can't find anything even close; lots of small clips, hook, latches, but nothing that 'self-opens', which is the most important spec. I can add a new RC servo and swinging arm and operate the release by remote, but I want to avoid it if there's a simple solution out there. Appreciate any help if someone has seen something out there?

A while ago I bought a cheap extending leg table which was made in China. The rather entertaining instructions included the line "Propel the inner rod towards the outer tube until the hoodle locates the orifice." It will always be the 'hoodle table' to us now, but if not a hoodle, what is the correct name for that type of spring catch.

Is there a way to create a clip or magazine using a seperate ratchet wheel that possibly plugs into the body of the gun and connects with the trigger hammer to create a rubber band gun that doesn't take so long to reload?

Alright, I was messing about with my knex, attempting to make a knex gun with a removable mgazine. I had made the clip and I then noticed my knex book-end that I made ages ago. I noticed that my knex gun clip would fit inside it, so with a little modding I think I have come up with the worlds smallest knex gun with a removable clip. It's roughly 12x8x3.5 with the clip in, and 12x6x3.5 without. Please post any atempts to beat this or correct me if I'm wrong becuase I have not researched this so it might not be the smallest.

Howdy, I have a lot of instructables which have YouTube clips. I've noticed that whenever I load a new clip to YouTube, that clip becomes the one in all of my instructables! Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a bug that is causing this and if s, is there a way to fix it?

Anyone know what's happened to the money clip contest. It has said winners will be announced for about a week now?

This belonged to my grandmother (the clasp looks post 1930). I assume there would have been some kind of hinged cover over the watch face (a hinge and catch are circled). I don't know what the double fanged clip like thing on the back is called or what it is for. The double 'fangs' look somewhat like an upholstery pin. Given that the front is a watch, and one needs to see a watch for it to be useful.... what would this be stuck into or clipped onto? Anyone familiar with this style?

I can only buy my pieces off the online lego store and they don't have the standard gear used to make the gun. Can someone post a gun that uses the pieces from the online pick-a-brick that is semi-auto or auto and would work with a clip system?

Hi, I am wondering how people make animations that are smooth, because in the stop motion animation, things always come out choppy for me. Do you have to take an amazing amount of photos, than speed the play back time up, or do people use a program that fills in the gaps? THIS IS WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO.(CLICK THIS) The video is just passed the little intro. Any help and info would be great! :D Thanks in advance.

Here is my Knex KAR98K Bolt action rifle. It was a very nice weapon and it could eject shells or it could just be fed through normally in the top. It could hold five shells at the top and it could also hold ten normal blue rods without the shells. It could shoot around 30FT. (If I remember correctly.) It was pretty cool. Im lucky I found these Images on my computer or else this gun would be history. It had a very nice handle to...

It has recently been brought to my attention that in both of KnexStealth's ibles he uses bronze 5 position connectors. This has brought a question to mind. Where does he get them?? I looked a little bit more and found other people have them as well. I hope someone can remember what set they got them in. I included the only picture I could find of a bronze connector. (It's the one on the bottem) Thanks By the way I will award best answer.

Recently one of the plastic clips that connect the strap to the mask for my CPAP machine broke. They sell replacement clips for the heargear ( 8 bucks for 2 clips). My question is would it be cost effective to get replacement clips 3D printed, or am I better off just buying the replacement clips?

Recently i purchased a bass amp (240W on a 15 inch speaker, got it for $180) Now when i crank up both the gain and volume to about 7 or 8 on the amp and one volume knob all the way and the other volume knob about a quarter of the way on my bass, and start playing slap, a red (doesn't usually indicate something good) LED next to the gain knob illuminates. so i turn it back down. Cause its either telling me "HEY! Hey you, yes you! this is going to kill me!" or its just telling me that its protecting it. So anyone know what it really does?

Sarah was particularly excited to run into Getta Grip Sewing Clips in the Craft area. Paul (right, holding clips) designed them for use with leather, but they're apparently great for any fabric you want to avoid pinning. As an extra bonus, they're designed to pop off nicely at the presser foot instead of sneaking under and breaking needles. When the first shipment comes in, we'll nab some of the clips to test and report back.In the meantime, here's the demo video:

Hello, Instructables community! I have a digital voice recorder. It doesn't come with a shirt clip. Thus, if if I put the DVR in my pocket, it will be sliding and may fall to its side (the item is not very tall). How can I create a shirt clip so that I can keep the recorder standing up in my pocket? See first image. The silver device on the right has the shirt clip. The size of the device on the left (Sony) is 4.5 x 1.5 x 0.8 inches. Unfortunately, the device that I bought does not have a shirt clip. My device is 4.3 x 1.5 x 0.7 inches. I've attached four photos of my device. It's the one with a face that is black on top and silver on the bottom. Preferably, I want a shirt-clip that won't leave any marks on the recorder. Thank you!!!

I am tying to build a panel with approximately 30 buttons (I would like the buttons to resemble door bell buttons). When a button is pushed a sound clip is played through a speaker. I would like one sound clip assigned to each button rather than a random sound clip. If the sound clips were randomized there would be no need for all the different buttons. The large panel of buttons is an esthetic that is important to this project. Thank you for any advice.
