St. Anthony's (The T Cross)

Hi, Does anyone know what kind of joint was used in making of a St. Anthony's  (The T Cross) that the Romans traditionally used for crucifixion. I've looked and looked and I just cant find it. I can guess but I don't want to guess. I want to make one that will be about a foot tall for a friend.  I hope you can help. Thank you

How to construct a a station of the cross and make it look real.? Religion Project?

I have to make a station of the cross for my son's for class. I have to use some form of 3D to construct(Example: Puffy pains, corn, beads, wood,yarn,toothpicks,cotton, felt, beans, etc.) I can not use action figures or dolls to construct the people on the station. I am not sure where to begin or how make it look real without the use of dolls of figures.

Cross-braces for wooden shelves

I want to make cross-braces for wooden shelves I built  using 1x4 stanchions, 1x12 shelves, threaded rod between the stanchions to hold the shelves up and the whole thing together, from an Instructables project. Ikea sells the perfect thing http://ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/87749600/  except it's too short and there's no Ikea in town; I mention it for the example it provides.  These http://www.storeroomshelves.com/storeroom_shelves_bracing/storeroom_shelves_bracing.htm look good too, and are cheap, but are 700 miles away. They don't need to be strong: I anchor the stanchions to the wall; I need them to hold the shelves up when I mantle and dismantle them.  They do need to be thin because the shelves are against the wall.

Help making Hearing aid

Hello! I need a bit of help for a project I am undertaking to make.My is to make such a device which detects the user whether a car or any other vehicle is approaching or not. The project is dedicated for the people who are deaf and cannot cross roads safely. What I think a solution could be is to make such a sensor which detects the horn of a car which further activates a vibrating motor in the pocket of the user.The vibratng motor is not at all an issue but the sensor being the problem. If anyone can please help either by giving your own solution or helping me in what I propose to do. Please help as this is not anything personal but a social cause. Hope to get an answer. Pranjal

When and how to install cross-braces on a shelving unit?

Hi! I purchased an "industrial" shelving system that I will soon install in my home. Each unit will be separate and measures 7 feet high, 4 feet wide and 2 feet deep. Each will have 5 shelves that can hold 600 pounds each. They can be bolted or clipped, but I prefer to use the clips (unless instructed otherwise by a guru). I'm not going to put anything much heavier than books on them. I was assured by the seller that the units did not need bracings, but everyone else tells me otherwise. So what's YOUR take, fellow instructables member? How can you tell if a shelving system needs braces? If so, where do you put them? At the back back or on the sides? Full length (7' x 4') or any size but in the middle of the posts? Thank you very much!!

Decimator Crossbow (v7)

Well I finally got some more pieces, more still coming; this enabled me to build something bigger =dThis crossbow(more like cannon, now) has the following specs:Ammo: 1 Standard arrow, which needs to be ductaped other wise torn to shreds.Weight: 4,5 kilo's (9,92 pounds)Range: Not tested outside, will beat the Reaper and the Blockhead for sure.Rubberbands: 32, 8 strings of 4 ( these may still be increased as it shows no bending yet.)Power: Just look at 2nd picture....should explain a lot.Trigger: Same as on the Blockhead, some big improvements on it though.(Surprised about how power much it can take...)Sturdiness: Seems close to unbreakable lol...Without realizing..I also made a very good scope on it o.oI had a purple+blue 3d connector as arrow tip and when I fired on my cardboard box, it made a huge tear...and my ears were ringing like from an explosion O.o'Well this monster has bad points:Need a long/strong left arm if you are right-handed, because this thing is heavy as hell.Cannot fire without trigger.Every arrow needs ductape otherwise connector gets torn off.Also I gonna try and say...:I think this may very well be the most powerful ranged k'nex weapon on this site at the moment.

How to convert a standard video monitor to a pulse-cross monitor?

For video diagnostics, a wave-form monitor and a pulse-cross monitor are highly useful tools. Is there a simple way to convert a standard video monitor into a pulse-cross (sometimes called a cross-pulse) monitor? I.e., feed the signal into a box and the box feeds into a standard video monitor and you can see the normally invisible image corners and invisible vertical interval of the video. I think this can be a simple electronics diagram. Thanks for any help!

Garage door safety sensor wiring?

I believe it is an infrared sensor with two wires on each. I have wired them to a 120V plug and the LEDs on them turn on and my motor spins slightly (probably just because it is a 120V motor and it's not getting enough electricity) but I try to line up the sensors and they do nothing different even when crossed. What I want to happen is for the motor to remain off until the beam is crossed. Once crossed I want it to spin and to keep spinning until I disconnect it. I would really like to put an alarm on it so when crossed an alarm goes off. Does anyone know the additional things I need and how to wire them? Thanks

PLANS Dragon Tiger Chu Ko Nu Repeating Crossbow

This is a set of complete plans for a Dragon or Tiger "Chu ko nu." To be purchased on Etsy as a downloadable set of files: https://www.etsy.com/listing/272230762/dragon-or-tiger-chu-ko-nu-plans?ga_order=most_relevant&ga;_search_type=all&ga;_view_type=gallery&ga;_search_query=repeating crossbow&ref;=sr_gallery_1    It is an ancient Chinese mechanical repeating crossbow. The plans include the printable dragon and tiger patterns that you glue on to your wood pieces, then cut out and wood-burn the beautiful pattern. Then you can paint or stain it how you want to. It is a crossbow and a sculpture, like a display woodworking item that is also fun to shoot! Assembly instructions here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCGHTDqgWHU I have been fascinated by this type of crossbow since my early teen years and have been building and experimenting with them for more than 10 years. This set of plans displays my most current and refined iteration. It is very fun to make this and see your own fine work come together, then see and feel the mechanism function smoothly. Very satisfying. To build this you will need some small hardwood boards as will be listed on the cover page of the plans (this wood is available at hardware stores ex: Lowes). You will also need white glue, two wood screws, and one small nail. The plans are delivered to you as a digital download in a zip file with all the pages in it. Tools needed include: Saw (prefer a band saw with scrolling blade, but a thin bladed hand saw can work), Sand paper, Round wood file, Clamps for gluing, Drill with selection of bits, Wood burning tool.

Amazing Family of DIY Pirates Cross Atlantic Ocean in Raft Made from Garbage!

This is actually old news at this point, but it's so awesome that I think it deserves some attention on Instructables. A unique family called the Neutrinos built a raft from garbage and scraps found on the streets of New York City, perfected their design during numerous trips along the coast, and then during the summer of 1998 spent 60 days floating it across the Atlantic in 20ft seas while fending off swirling currents and heart attacks!Needless to say, the story warranted some further investigation, upon which I learned that these empowered adventurers have built many rafts over the past 20 years. The children of the family were born in Mexico and raised in the circus. The more I read about their story, the more interested and excited I become.Check out the details at their extensive website - The Floating Neutrinos where they write about the other rafts they have built, brain reprogramming, and about their newest project: The Vilma B, a floating 128' orphanage housing up to 25 children!National Geographic TV featured their home-made a movie about their journey across the Atlantic, and a new movie about the family is on the way. Watch the trailer here.If you don't have time to dig through the entire site, you can check out the condensed summary of it all at http://www.paulsorganic.com/most-fascinating.htmIf anyone knows more about these people please reply - I can't stop reading about their adventures and getting exciting about floating somewhere myself!
