I'd like to make a do-it-yourself table fountain with a whisper power filter fish tank pump. any ideas or websites that might help? i'm thinking i'll glue a bunch of flat river rocks in, like a 'vase' kinda thing that the pump will fit in. and then put the rock 'vase' & pump in a 4-6(ish) inch deep glass dish and fill that with water and more rocks............ any input would be great!
Its rock/rap dudes come on!!!!!!!

When a neighbor's whirlpool brokedown they decided they no longer wanted the tub. they took it up and threw it away. Being into recycling I took the tub and buried it up to the rim in the ground and using all the steps used to put in a pool liner. I have my rocks and have banked the sides so that the tub will work as a pool but now I'm not sure what is the best mortar to use to adhere the rocks to the rim and the upper foot of the tub walls. Please answer as quickly as possible as I want to finish before my family reunion this summer. Thank you.
One of my friends gave this to me and told me to take care of it. Apparently there is some sentimental value to it and i am trying to bring it to its original glory. I was wondering if anyone knows the name of it or has any original pictures. Or any information about this. Rocking chairs aren't my expertise, and not much stuff about them are on here but i felt it was worth a shot.

Living in a rock or brick house exposes you to 700 times the radiation as eating a single yellow banana ! A BBC chart shows a banana as 0.1 radiation units and rock/brick homes as 70 radiation units and flying a trans continental aircraft is much worse in exposing you to radiation...

If you know about those little banger thingies that you throw on the floor and they bang, what are they composed of? I had opened one up and I had found rocks.... also I had set light to one of those nifty things and BOOM! Why did that happen? They combust when they hit the ground, or is my match at a really high temp.?

For our spring orchestra concert at my school, I convinced my teacher to pick an arrangement of 21 Guns by Green Day as one of our pieces. Why pick 21 Guns over Don't Stop Believing? Because I like it better. THAT's why :P So...I was wondering. Has anyone else played an EPIC rock/punk/alternative or just something totally UN-CLASSICAL on a classical insturment? Perhaps something as awesome as a Green Day song? I play violin btw xD

I have Guitar Hero III for playstation2 and I don't want to get rock band. I know the Rock Band drums don't work for guitar hero. Maybe i could take apart a Guitar hero controller and make it into a drum set. I want it to be able to wammy and use star power (maybe pedals or something). and i want to be able to press 3 buttons at the same time (another pedal?). I also want to be able to hit it repeatedly to hold a note (like in rock band). I guess it should "strum" automatically when i hit a note. I don't have any idea on how to make it, but i know it's possible, and that there is a simple way of doing it. it doesn't have to look nice. it should just work. Anyway, I hope someone could help me out and make an Instructable or a youtube video or something. I'm sure many others would love to do it. thanks, schetleft

Does a PS2 Rock Band guitar controller work with the PS3 Guitar Hero games, and if so, how do I connect it?
A family friend had a PS2 Rock Band drum kit and guitar controller lying around, and I bought them off of him. The drums aren't a problem, but the guitar controller won't connect. I plugged in the USB transceiver, checked the batteries, checked the power switch, but it still won't connect. Any reasons?

Well, my front yard is currently supported by piles of rocks where there is a ditch next to it, however only when there is heavy rainfall that the water passes through the ditch otherwise its empty. The piles of rocks were placed one onto the other and these were never mortared and neither has a good base. So, I have a huge amount of stones in my yard that I wanted to get rid of and also the quality of the soil where I live is very poor as it is like mortar when humid and blocks of soil when dry which I was thinking of using as backfilling. My question is how can I use the existing rocks to rebuild the retaining wall well, solid and also have a good look. By the way I live in Mauritius where the climate is humid and I live rather close to a mountain and river and the rocks are lava rocks meaning very hard. Please give me instructions on how to make everything from building the trench to finishing the wall and the tools that will be needed. thanks

I made a hack for playing Rock band with a real guitar, but I'm not so happy with the finger contacts...
Here is the video of me playing rock band with a real guitar https://www.instructables.com/id/Play-Rock-band-2-with-a-real-guitar-and-boxing-glo/ I hacked an xbox rock band guitar controller and ran a wire from ground to the strings of the guitar, and then one wire for each of the fingers on my left hand. I made a little tin foil "hat" for each finger, and even though it worked great for controlling the game, I didn't feel like I got enough controll of which string I actually pressed down. For playing the game it is enought to just put the correct fingers on the stings, but what I wanted to do was to actually play along with the tunes in rock band to the best of my abilities, to actually have cool sounds come out of my real guitar. But what I'm looking for are suggestions on how to make the finger contacts better?

Electret: a material that is electric like a magnet is magnetic. Using rock and silicate dusts, is it plausible/possible/simple enough to melt the rock/silicates in a crucible furnace, pour the mix into a mould ... which is polarised by a high tension DC voltage field: Upon cooling, the material is said to become a high voltage electric parallel of a magnet. The concept is simple enough, right? I think Hutchinson adds barium titanate to his crystal cells, which I believe her charges straight off the 90 degree spike from a HV coil. so ... polarisation ... like a magnet. possible? plausible? doable? instructable!! :D thankyou!

This glove lets you play Rock Paper Scissors against an Arduino opponent. The sensors on two fingers along with an accelerometer detect when you play and it puts out its own move on the screen. Even better, this looks like it was done by Grathio who is sporting an Instructables shirt in the video. Nice one! Link via Neatorama

I heard this neat Christmas song on the radio. It was a medley of Led Zeppelin songs and Christmas songs. I'm not sure what Christmas songs there were but it had the tunes of Communications Breakdown, Rock and Roll, and Kashmire. I am not surte if this was actually by Led Zep or somebody else but I was hoping somebody could tell me who performed it and maybe post a video of it.

I'm a bit late to the Rock Band party (okay, *a lot*), so I when I saw a PS3 Rock Band wireless guitar at a Goodwill store, I excitedly bought it, but when I got it back home, I was disappointed to find that it does not use the PS3's Bluetooth after doing some research, and actually requires a special wireless RF dongle that I did not receive with the guitar. Unfortunately, these things cost around 30 bucks on their own. So, I've been wondering if it's possible to make this wireless guitar use a USB cable instead (perhaps to just work with the PC). Is something like this even possible without swapping the internals altogether? Thank you in advance.

I was just wondering if anyone out there knew how to seal stone in such a way as to make it useful as a food service platter or maybe a cup. I know its possible to use glaze like one would on a piece of pottery (or maybe tile sealant?) but I would like to find some way that 1)doesn't require a kiln and 2) leaves the rock looking like regular rock. Best would be a way that makes the rock look wet but matte and doesn't change the texture.

Full Combo means that you didn't overhit (look below), and you didn't miss any notes.If someone uses the term "Overhit", it means that you hit the drum where you don't have to.A drum fill, is something that looks like long notes that go across the "guitar neck". It is also known as the "Overdrive Activator". When you see the long notes, you have to hit at least three notes, and hit the green (or red if you play on lefty) pad when you see the green "bulb" pop up at the end of the notes.Overdrive is something that makes your multiplier go higher (and count by two). For example, if you have a multiplier of 4 (the highest) and you go into Overdrive, your multiplier goes up to 8. 1 makes 2, 2 makes 4, and 3 makes 6.Your multiplier multiplies the number of points. If you have a multiplier of 1, then each note will be 25. 2, is 50 each note, 3 is 75 each note, and 4 is 100 points.Again, if you have any questions, just ask.Some things you might

Hello my name is Charlie, I write from Peru and have some doubts about Drums for PS3 with Rock Band 3. Buy generic drums locally and is identical to the product of China (http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/iEMfIyBYj?af=130194941), turn on the PS3 with Rock Band 3, connect the wireless receiver and select PS / RB and not working. Change the selector to PS / GHWT and pedal not working. Then again turn on the PS3 with GuitarHero WorldTour, I connect the wireless receiver and select PS / GHWT and operating normally. My question ?: What is the way to operate the drums on Rock Band 3 for PS3 and then use the PRO mode? And if you need to open and weld or add a card, I could indicate how. I have not found something similar in the entire site and then not want to lose my investment. Thanks for the suggestions and I hope you can help me. Cheers, Charlie,

Hello, first off, thanks for taking the time to read my post.Second, I'm brainstorming ideas to make a dirt cheap rock tumbler, for polishing collected stones and maybe even making jewelry out of them. There are a few sites out there with instructions on making rock tumblers and other equipment. Some being:HereAnd hereThe design seems to basically be a rotating horizontal plastic or rubber cylinder, set on two evenly spinning axises. I was thinking of using 4" PVC pipe as the tumbling barrel, and maybe 1" PVC for the axises. One of my first questions is, will a large desktop fan be (roughly) powerful enough to turn the 4" barrel at 50-100 rpm? Keep in mind these are plans for a dirt cheap rock tumbler, so I really don't want to spend much on these parts. Any other suggestions for motors?And, does anyone have any plans that they have made, or even constructed tumblers?Any tips, additions, etc. to my plans?Thanks for reading my post :)

I want to make fake granite. Seen the retaining walls along the road turned into faux granite outcroppings?
I've seen some really realistic-looking fake granite. There's a hotel lobby filled with a 'granite' water feature, and along roads they're putting in retaining walls then covering them with concrete that's dyed and shaped to look like a granite outcropping! I'd love to learn how to do that. Can anyone tell me how to do that?
