easiest metal to work with

Can any one tell me which hollow meal rods are easiest to work with? I am thinking about building a hammock frame that will support at least 170-200 lbs. ( i weigh 160 but it never hurts to hold more). I wouldn't necessarily need to bend the metal rods but they should be relatively easy to cut. I want to stay away from hard wood and copper if possible. At first i was thinking about using pvc but i don't know how much it can hold. I only have hand tools and a power drill. Please feel free to post any suggestions. If you have a better way to build a hammock frame please post it here. If i figure it out ill post an instructable. I uploaded the top view and side view of my design. it was drawn in paint for brain storm so its not very detailed

What are crafts I can sell that are small and easy to make?

Hey, I have a bit of time on my hands and I plan on spending some of that casually making money. I've figured that making and selling crafts would be the best way to go about that, all while incorporating something I enjoy: crafts. Do you have any ideas of easy-to-make items which I can sell on eBay?  So far, I'm  considering candles and candle holders.  Thanks!

Skip suggesting "for easy printing"

When you hover over the PDF icon a bubble says "Download as PDF for easy printing and offline viewing".  I suggest you skip the "for easy printing" -- it suggests the reader waste paper for something that can easily be viewed online.

How come noone posted a DIY yoyo yet? I make them so I thought someone would've posted it by now. You can make cool mini plastics out of cheap crappy party favors from any party isle at the store, Butterfly and regular. I have to make an extra thin string for them but they sleep and fly nice.

Why Vegan Is Good?

Here are four reasons that make me cook and eat vegan, and most important – enjoy it: Vegan is Healthy - Eating vegan and fresh food several times per week will make you lose weight, look better, be full of energy and feel better. Go back to the roots. Vegan is more Sustainable - Conventional livestock farming is the most polluting, water using, greenhouse gases emitting and cruel industry humans have ever managed to create. And don’t give me that crap about pesticides and migrant workers picking the vegetables – buy seasonal (see recipes for autumn-winter, spring-summer or all season meals) and local products. It’s your choice who you’re giving your money to after all! Vegan brings Cultures together - Vegan meals are dominant menu in all ancient cultures – from India and the Middle East, through South East Asia, the Americas, Europe and Africa. Vegan is a Challenge - My first rule – never follow a recipe to the letter. Use your imagination and creativity, change it according to your personal taste, improvise and share your experience. And here I am putting together a cookbook with easy vegan recipes and willing to share experience!

How to: get started

Hi everyone! I'm kinda new here, but I like the site a lot. I've been thinking some time about starting to build things, learning a bit of programming and so on and so forth. And then I found this site. Now I'm planning on forming a hobbyist club with some of my friends (we are 16-17 years old). The problem is, I don't know with wich projects I should begin... We don't have a CNC machine or 3D printer. All suggestions are very welcome, from building a boat to a cannon to some toys to some costumes etc. If possible, please post the instructable here. Suggestions are also welcome! Thanks in advance! :p

Convert a basic plastic toy car to autonomous, request for comments. Answered

Here is my idea: Convert a basic plastic toy car to autonomous. Using an arduino or similar, convert a basic toy car to autonomous. My son has a toy car approximately 10 inches or so in length he outgrew.  It is quite rugged and would be a shame to throw it away as it is in very good condition. The wheels are approximately 4 inches high.  I have opened the chassis and there is a gap of approximately 4 centimetres (rising to 7 centimetres at the front and back) between the base and the body. There is more than enough room to fit an arduino in there along with a couple of motors and batteries (although realistically I would fit the batteries externally so they can be replaced easily). The wheels are on metal rods approximately 3 millimetres thick that travel the width of the car. []-----[] If I was to cut each bar in the centre I would end up with the 4 wheels on a length of metal rod. Using a self-locking washer on the inside of the chassis I could prevent the wheels falling out: []-)--- If I connected a motor to the back wheels and linked the front and back wheels so the back wheels drove the front wheels I should get a tank-track like system - turning the back left wheel would turn the front left wheel, same for the right hand side. Controlling the motors would allow forward, reverse, left, right and turning on the spot mobility. Using sensors to detect distance, light, darkness, collisions etc which on an arduino would be trivial would give a truly autonomous vehicle. Am I way off track here or is my idea feasible? Please, comment away.. I will give it a go anyway but before I start I wish to know that it can in theory work :)
