We have old wooden speakers, 26Hx17wx13D, How can I make these into side tables for our livingroom. The height is good but there is not enough surface area and the front of the speakers still has the ugly speaker plastic attached.
I found this old relic while metal detecting near an old 1800's ghost town. It is 8" in length. You'll notice that one end has 2 parts that look like a "t" or a cross. One of these "crosses" has the ability to swivel back and forth about 180 degrees. The other "cross" is stationary and doesn't move or swivel at all. If anyone knows what this could be, I'd appreciate the feedback. Thanks.

Although somewhat difficult to explain, I was told this threader was used along with a spinning wheel-the treadle works fine and spins the hooked piece which then feeds the thread to the spools on the right. Ingenious !

This will probable only apply to UK based answerers of a "certain age" When I was a kid (1960's) we could buy a nut based sweet/treat - in a cardboard box, the resembled brown wrinkled peas - they were chewy (not Toffee) and a natural nut - slightly sweet to taste Any idea of the name - it's driving me nuts.

I have a program designed in the late 80's for determining noise levels from an text input file. Namely the Stamina 20 Optima Noise Assessment program. Been awhile since I used it but I have had a need now to use it and can;t with my current systems, Windows 7 etc. I'm hoping there is somewhere where I can find just one for a fee of course. Ina garage, attic, warehouse, anywhere.

I've noticed that in the attempts websites make to become more and more advanced, they always somehow mess up and make their layout WORSE than the last one. The one we had before was good. The one before that was better. Same thing for any other site. Google has had the same layout for who knows how long, I respect them for that. They made a simple interface, clearly laid out buttons, and they left out all the garbage. When the stats and related ibles were on the right of the instructable, it centered the instructable currently being viewed on the screen which was good for my eyes. I don't know why you guys decided to change it, it was fine the way it was before. Just my honest opinion here... Update: Thanks for taking my advice guys!

The lock has a flat spring, not like the round type springs, and this flat spring keeps tension on the latch to keep it out. The spring broke and is there a place where I could get another. Thanks

I have a dying mac. More specifically, the moniter is dying. Unfortunatly the way its designed its apparently unfixable. Well instead of being wasteful and throwing it out any ideas to make it useful? I am saving for a new one and it'll take me a couple of months, until then I wanted to brain storm.

Greetings all, I've made two of the coolest costumes (cool to me anyway) in the last five weeks, it was an inspiration that rose of it's own and I'm not really sure why or how they came to me: https://www.instructables.com/id/Constructing-Anubis/ https://www.instructables.com/id/Constructing-Bastet/ We really had no goal in doing those other than to share them. We entered them into some contests here, because if we win, I have a very good friend who is in dire need of a decent computer - but that is another story. Doing a thing for a specific goal robs it of all it's power. :-) We just returned from Halloween night and another tour of the Gaslamp in downtown San Diego, met with photo-op stops every five feet and "10-signs" and applause at all the outdoor restaurants. (It's traditional at Halloween that when you're seated at outdoor restaurants, they give you signs with 1-10 on them to wave at passing costumes, a Gaslamp Halloween Olympics of sorts.) We've had SO much fun sharing these. It's been one of our highlight experiences this year. Just the reactions from people, young and old, were priceless. However. Halloween is over. My wife is not thrilled about saving them for next year, it's like watching Dukes of Hazzard reruns. We'll need a new discovery. So . . . what would you do with these? You might think "keep them" but we have gone through some major changes in recent years, one of them a down-sizing of gargantuan proportions that required giving away or selling most of everything we own. As we did so, rather than the loss one might expect, we were more and more aware of how liberating this was, how free we became as we unbound ourselves from possessions. We vowed never to begin amassing possessions again, and this would be a dangerous first step in that direction. We thought about offering them for sale to Egyptian themed enterprises, such as the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles, but that's just one idea. What do you do with your creations that obviously spark some awareness in those that experience them? Thanks for reading. Not sure what to do.

Yesterday my teched teacher showed us an old battery. It looks like a supersized 9-volt battery. it was like 7 inches long or something like that and had a voltage output of something like 75.5 (yes, 75 and a half) volts. I think it's used for old radios? What are these batteries called?

Like many other people here on Instructables, I prefer the old search. The new search has no filters at all, and anything with the specified keywords in it, no matter how far apart, will come up. If one of the keywords is in the comments it will also show up. I would like Instructables to return to the old way of searching. I understand that the new layout is simpler to new users, but the new search is confusing. If i was a new user to the site, i would be confused and annoyed at the search.

I am into learning how to build furniture and structures in the way it was done in the past. I.E with out nails and with hand tools because I find that these old ways produce very high quality furnite, and because I like the rough look. Dose anyone know of any good books websites forums etc that talk about this kind of thing?
