What's the best way to attach line to clothespoles?

I have two clothes line T poles with no line in my backyard. I would like to hang clothes this summer but do not know the best way to attach line to the poles. I can attach pictures later today of the poles so you can see what is drilled and available to run line through or attach hardware to. Thanks for your advice!

Is it possible to create a horizontal line on TV screen to be able to move it ???

Hi ... I would like to ask, if you know a way how to create a thin, horizontal line on your TV screen by using a device ??? Device is NOT a string, scratch on the screen, line with a pen ... (and not even PC)... by DEVICE I mean an circuit (micro controller, resistors...etc) ... and I should be able to move the line to any position I want (up/down). EDIT : the line should be projected on the screen without having an effect on the background. So that you could watch a movie and see the line as well. A better example are the "driving lines" on a rear camera (z.about.com/d/trucks/1/0/s/Z/audi_q7_4169.jpg) This is, what I'm looking after. Have you ever come in touch with something like this, or do you have an idea, how to create it ??? Thank you in advance .... zholy

Could someone please identify this board?

I was ransacking through my university's inventory, in a quest to find something to build a line follower robot. I did find something that gave me a positive gut feeling. However, I need to know for sure what exactly this board is and if it is suitable for a line follower robot that should trace a 1.5 inch black line on a white background.  Photo of the board attached. Thanks.

Simple question, trying to make line in on casette-less boombox, can't find amp outputs

So I have this little radio boombox with no casette deck and I want to hook up my mp3 player to it. I'm trying to find where the amp outputs are so i can solder on a line in cord, anyone have info that would help me? I'll post pictures in the day time tomorrow when I can use the camera.  Thanks DIY'ers, DIY or die ps: I was thinking I could just take the spliced line in cord and probe around on the solder bumps until sound starts coming out, would this harm my mp3 player?

Can i line in thru the cd player on an older boombox ?i

I have a GE boombox from the late 80's early 90's in which the cd player stopped working years ago.I have been looking at the instructions on this site for line in thru the cassete player and was curious if it is possible to do the same thing except do it thru the cd lines going to the board .It appears to me that with most of the instructions i have read about the cassete conversion is that the cassete drive motor still runs after this conversion which sucks quit a bit of juice,which may not seem like a big deal to most but i go on canoe trips for 3-5 days at a time when no power is available other than the batteries I bring on the trip so it would be nice to line in and not have any motors that are not necessary running. If not i will use one of the great tutorials for the cassete way of doing it. Thanks dave

Portable Stereo?

Ive seen how everyone has made a portable backpack stereo and i think that is a great idea but why not use a regular cd player with all its internals and speakers instead of going out and having to buy a separate amp and speakers and connect it all.

can some one tell what is the voltage (ac and dc both )In a phone line? Answered

I have a DMM but it is of low quality so i assume may be my readings were wrong ... i found out to be 50V DC (when knob was at DC) and a Vrms of 110V when i turned my DMM's knob to AC ... even when the phone was not ringing is my method of finding the voltage right? can someone check what is the actual voltage in a phone line part 2 if the voltage is 50v Dc then when i connect a resistor it is lowered to 16V and if the resistor is 240 ohm then it is more lowered to 8V  what possibly the reason could be ? and when an led is attached directly to 50V it glows BUT theoretically it should Blow up. any idea whats going on ?

What IR source & two terminal Photo transistor can be clubbed to replace either QRD1114 or CNY70 reflective sensor pkg?

I'm referring to - Building of a SPURT BOT(a simple line following robot) submitted by ignoblegnome (See https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-SpurtBot-Line-Follower/). I'm building one for my cousin who's in the 7th grade & found this to be the most simplest & one that looks like its been made by a kid.           It looks so, as it has the least number of electronic components. But unfortunately i have been unable to find both QRD1114 & CNY70 reflective sensor packages. While going through the comments section, i saw a comment by the author himself saying that the package can be replaced with an IR LED & a 2 terminal Photo transistor which happen to be the same components that make up both QRD1114 & CNY70 packages. I would be extremely thankful to fellow users if they could mention the exact part/component number of the IR LED & a 2 terminal photo transistor that can be clubbed & used instead of QRD1114/CNY70 for the same voltage rating & circuit used in the instructable mentioned above. I need this info ASAP, THANKS a TON & kindly forgive me for my bad grammar.

Straight line art - what is the technical name?

I remember back in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and I believe even 5th grade, when I was in a gifted program, we had to draw. We drew only straight lines, and when we did it right, it made a curve. We would get a paper with 2 lines, connected at a vertex, at a 90 degree angle. We would draw points every centimeter or so, and connect the points, far to close, far to close. (It's hard to explain.) I'm searching for it on the Internet, but I can't seem to find the right word. Does anyone know it? Thanks, and if it turns out all good, expect an Instructable on it mid- to late October.

How accurate can a line following robot be? (Laser cutter idea inside)

I have no idea how accurate line following robots can be (and this is what I'd some clarification for), but could a cutting laser be mounted to one? The robot would just follow a black line that you've printed out, and in the process would have also cut out the pattern. If that would work, this would allow you to cut out shapes from a huge canvas size, as well as making quick stencils with a fine line Sharpie.

Building a 5V or 12V powered in-line preamplifier

I want to build an in-line pre-amplifier with a 3.5mm in and out jack.  What I want, or at least think I want, is a simple booster that provides a small, but relatively even gain boost from an MP3 player into the main amplifier. Something along the lines of this: https://www.instructables.com/id/In-line-headphone-amplifier/ However, I would like to be able to power it off of 5V USB or off of the 12V coming into the cigar lighter. What I'm effectively trying to do is get enough gain on low volume spoken-word audio coming out of my mp3 player so that I don't have to crank the stereo up to max.  Does anyone have any good sources for instructions or advice for this sort of thing? Alternatively, someone can tell me if this is a fools errand to begin with, and that I aught to be taking a different approach altogether.

Annotation/Note boxes never line up where they are supposed to.

Annotation box may not be the right word, because I've never done an Instructable, but I am talking about the "Note" boxes that you hover over to see the author's note on his project images. They rarely line up with what they are supposed to, no matter what Instructable I view. So I don't think it's the author's fault (Sometimes they are even way out of whack, like on the wrong side of an image), I think it's a bug.For example, scroll down to the image of the pear painted on the glass on this page, and notice where the note is. Several of his images are that way, some are worse off than others:https://www.instructables.com/id/Layered_glass_art/?InstructImages

adding aux line in directly to boombox ampli

I have seen a lot of instrucrables about it, but nothing about this model. I find a similar unit here https://cocodrilabs.wordpress.com/2012/04/05/installing-an-auxiliary-input-on-a-stereo/ the aux in is conected directly to the IC Amps pin. I have the IC diagram, what i dont understand is this model have a dual IC8207k. One for each channel. TA8207K is a stereo IC, so how do i do the wiring? For single IC its just INPUT1-INPUT2-GND. In dual setting they have 4 input and 2 ground. I dont want to use any tape adapter since its sound terrible here i attach the complete diagram and schematic in PDF please give some tutorial, im a beginner in this kind of thing) hehe my email zramanta@gmail.com sorry for the bad english :D

I've been searching for a cost-effective source for "GorrillaPod" type parts.  Could be really helpful for many projects.  The closest things I'm able to find are http://www.modularhose.com    A bit expensive for many purposes. http://www.loc-line.com/              Seems like lengths are generally limited to 5.75 inch segments. Both of these products seem very good for what they are intended.  The loc-line looks like it can be joined - so maybe that is a good one. Is loc-line stiff enough to behave similar to gorillapod? It would be really nice if we could snap together pieces to make what ever lengths desired. Maybe this already exists and I've just missed it....

Need advice for adding aux-in/line-in to Philips AE2160/00-A AM/MW/LW portable radio

Hey there, this is my first post! :) I'm from Germany, so please excuse my grammar! :D The reason why I'm opening up this new topic is, I didn't find any instructable or guide on how to add an aux-in/line-in to my simple mono AM/MW/LW radio Philips AE2160/00-A. There's not much to find out about the technical specifications besides the standard product information: Tuner • Analogue tuning • Wave ranges FM 87.5 - 108 MHz MW 525 - 1606.5 kHz /04 LW 150 -255 kHz /00c FM/MW /04 FM/MW/LW /05 FM/MW/LW • Ferroceptor for MW (and LW) • Telescopic aerial for FM (and SW) Amplifier • Max. output power 300 mW RMS • Tone control Music /News Sound system • Loud speaker 100 mm • Metal grill Power supply • External supply /00c, /04 230V /05 240V AC • Batteries 2 x 1.5V , type R20/D cell/UM1 Connections • Headphone socket 3.5mm General • Material Polystyrene, metal grill • Weight (g) 520 • Dimensions (mm) 210 W x 150H Here's a link to a photo of the device: http://images.philips.com/is/image/PhilipsConsumer/AE2160_00-_FP-global-001?wid=2000&hei=2000&$jpglarge$ I didn't even find schematics/circuit diagrams for this or a similar device. There are lots of tutorials on how to add such an input to a car radio or a boombox/stereo cassette player a.s.o., but not for a simple AM/MW/LW radio. My questions are: 1.) Are there any similar hack projects here in the step-by-step or forum section? 2.) How do I find the right connector or place to solder a 2-way-switch between the sections (tuner, amp, speaker)? After the hacking job, it should be possible to switch between normal radio listening mode and aux-in/line-in mode from an external mp3 player, notebook, a.s.o.. 3.) Is there anything else to know for this project? Yesterday I've opened up the case for the first time and looked over the circuit board and the connections. I had no cam to take pictures, but I try to take some mobile phone cam pictures of the circuitry and parts at the next opportunity! Cheers, arok1
