Mags v.s clips

Seriously, why does everybody call mags clips? Is it because of hasbro? A magazine is the object that holds all the bullets, a clip is some bullets clip'd together. Why is this so hard for some people?

Power amp clipping problem?

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.?

Self Opening Clip with time delay of 2-3 mins

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?

The smallest knex gun with a removabe clip

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.

What is this type of fastening called and what does it fasten to? Answered

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?

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?

How can I create a shirt clip for my digital voice recorder? Answered

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.
