I can't get empty used propane tank. Hardly and rarely someone uses it in estonia. So I was thinking to use pot from homedepot. I have no idea what else I can use. Any ideas someone? I think that right types of metal gives right sound.

Not too long ago I ordered a Raspberry Pi 3 and used it as my main computer for about a day and while it did most things pretty well, internet browsing, as usual, was painful, with the browser tabs loading very slowly and crashing frequently, probably due to the small about of RAM and poor RAM management. Anyways I decided that while the Pi 3 may still not be suitable for me in desktop use, what about game emulation!?!? ----------- So I download the RetroPie distro and flash that to a quality SD card, and get it set up. I installed a few experimental emulators and messed with the CPU/GPU RAM allocation a bit but any time I try to emulate a system, or even exit an emulator and get back to the emulation station, the entire system hangs!!!! Being a hardware guy, I get the osciloscope and measure the power supply. I did notice that when the PS3 is connected via USB, the red light on the Pi goes out. Surely enough the red light goes out because the nominal 5V input drops to below 4.5V, which causes the 1.1V regulator powering the processor to drop out for some reason. I replaced the dodgy 6 ft USB cable and 5V 2A power adapter with a much shorter 2 foot long and thick micro USB cable and use a quality samsung 5.3V 2.5A charger, and this seemed to fix that problem and reduce the frequency of system hangs. Now I can no longer observe a correlation between a system hang and low voltage dropout. The minimum voltage observed was 4.8V. However I still sometimes get system hangs when exiting emulators, and it is just about guaranteed to hang when trying to use the SNES, N64, and PSP emulators. I might try to reflash RetroPie over this weekend if I have time, but I want to know if anyone else had this problem or might have a solution. The SD card used was a 32GB SONY UHS1 card nominally rated at 40MB/s transfer rate, and benchmarked the highest of all my 32GB cards with 4Kbyte random read/write. I used Win32DiskImager to flash the card in windows 10.

I am apparently unable to upload images to my library, and I'bles Web pages also show an indefinite "loading" condition. This has been going on for several days now. It seems like there are some stupid "hidden embedded images" from traffic analysis firms that are hanging things up. I currently see "Waiting for pixel.quantserve.com..." on one tab (this one!), "Transferring data from beacon.scorecardresearch.com..." on another tab (my image upload attempt), and the nefarious "Waiting for ad.doubleclick.net..." on two others.

I live in a house with no closets and bought one of those wire closet racks and ran it across the back of my bedroom. It works but leaves a messy appearance with no doors and I have a wood stove and a dusty farmhouse. I have material for curtains but can't afford a rod of that strength and length. So...whatcha got?

I am very interested in buying a hang glider or paraglider. It seems to me that hang gliders are less expensive, but I am more concerned about the safety than I am about the price. Which do you recommend, a hang glider or a paraglider? And, which goes faster and farther? Thanks

I'm wanting to create a giant hanging light bulb lamp, similar to the ones I've uploaded, but I'm not really sure how I would go about doing it. I think I would make it out of plastic. So I would need to create a mold and then make two halves on a vacuum form, but I have no experience doing that. I'm not sure how I would make a mold of a giant light bulb, what materials to use and how to make it. I had thought about maybe cutting something out on a lathe but I don't have a lathe and it seems like it would have to be pretty big. I also thought about paper mache but I was afraid it might be too bumpy and light bulbs are smooth. Also once I have created the vacuum form plastic halves how I would attach them together with out having a large seam show.

Hi, I fly a microlight, the trike of which fits nicely in my van (see link). The wing folds into a sausage shaped, zip-up bag, which can be carried on a roof-rack made by bolting a ladder to the roof of the van....but getting it up there is an issue. I can get help from a neighbour when I set out, but I am on my own at the airfield, when it comes to getting the wing down....and later putting it back up.I have wondered about a pulley system, a stepped system, a winch, etcanyone got any suggestions?http://tinworm-wings.blogspot.com/all help very much appreciated-Tinworm

I moved into an apartment complex where the ceiling joists are made of metal. I have a pot rack that I need to hang, and hanging from just anchors isn't an option as it has to support almost 100 pounds. I feel like the best thing I could do would be to find some way to have a support sit on TOP of two paralell joists, but I don't know how to install something like that without ripping the ceiling apart to get to it? Anyone have any ideas/ know of any kind of anchors that I could install without a big fuss? Thanks a lot!

I need a way to hang 40 -50ish ball caps on a flat space of wall. Three people access these hats daily. I don't want to use pushpins because they can pull out when a hat is removed. I was using an old accordion coffee mug holder, which is nice because it only requires a few holes in the wall, but we've way outgrown that and it's not great looking either.

I have very limited space in my kitchen and leave my pots and pans on the stove when i'm not using them but they get in the way. I remember, in the old days, they had ways to hang them from the ceiling and could raise and lower them with a rope. Since I have limited space, I was thinking about a copper pipe mounted on a system where you could push a button to raise and lower the pipe along some sort of track mounted to the wall that holds the pipe out 12-18 inches away from the wall. (Almost like a wire rack shelf idea where the shelf would electronically move up and down.) I could then hang S hooks from the bar and hand the pots from the hooks and raise them up along the wall, out of the way until I need them and lower them without a pulley or getting a chair. I can usually manage to change a lightbulb all by myself but I am lost on this idea. Any inexpensive suggestions???

Hiya, I'm a noob. I love the look of chunk glass lamps, and like hanging swag / pendant lamps, but the real thing is ridiculously expensive. So, I'd like to make one. The wiring is reasonably straightforward, any one of the kit things would work fine. Where I'm running into trouble is how to put it together. I know it's going to be heavy, which is ok; Elephant hooks from Amazon claim they can support a hundred pounds if put into a rafter. What I'm looking for is how to make the thing to attach the glass to. A lot of the existing ones (If you search google for 'chunk glass lamp' you'll find what I'm interested in) use either molded lead or mortar. I'm kind of looking for a slightly lighter weight solution; I'd rather the weight be pretty rather than structural. An idea I originally had was something like a 3d printed frame, maybe in sections that can snap together with a network of supports to glue the glass to, to allow a thin smear of mortar or clay or something to cover it, so the light only comes through the glass. I know many of the original ones from the 60s and 70s were lucite vs glass, Big hunks of glass seem relatively easy to find, big hunks of plastic not so much. If anyone has a good source for either or both, I'd love to hear. Be gentle, it's my first time here. :) (Tried to attach a file, but I'm at work, and it looks like the network is nuking it. Just search google for 'chunk glass lamp' and you'll find dozens.)

Hi, I have a beautiful old hanging scroll form Japan. It wasn't expensive at the time, probably because the painting on it seems never to have been finished by the artist, but I value it highly. The paper itself is crumbling in some places and I would like to somehow attach a backing (I was considering cloth of some kind) to that the paper won't eventually rip when the picture is hanging. What kind of adhesive should I use to attach a light fabric to the paper that won't eat away at the paper from the back over time? any other suggestions, i.e. alternatives to my fabric idea, are also very welcome. thanks in advance.
