Just out of interest... I was pondering as to whether the dimise of small chain harware stores is a world wide phenominum or is just an Australian trend... I am lucky enough to have started with my company, back when it was the type of store you could dash into and see Bob from electrical, that had that 1w LeD you were looking for, that never sells, just Bob has some stashed away just for special customers like yourself... Or Dave in plumbing that knows exactly what PSI rated pipe you need for the job..... Or even Tim in tools is still holding that $400 impact drill he ordered in just 'cause you said you wanted to check it out(even though he is not supposed to) Unfortunatley we have been taken over by a multi-million dollar company and things have changed.... Most of the old employees were sacked.... But some made it though... I have taking it apon myself to resurect the fallen company, one person at a time.... So far 5 of us remain (quality employees that LOVE our customers) I now am a manager and have trained over 15 employees. (these team members at times get VERY protective of their departments, which makes me wonder if I instilled a 'lil bit to much of myself in them) Those 15 have trained atleast 5 employees each... So far that's 80 employees... Hopefully this spontaniously continues... I might add, these employees act vastley different from the generic 16yr old kid, the new business employs, who doesn't care if a customers get's stuffed around for hours on end.... 80 vs 30,000 It's seems to be working as I have had MANY complements as to the QUALITY of service provided to customers, by these employees. In the mean time until we take control (I already have 90% of my staff converted to the dark side at my store ;p) It's off to go hide some LeD's, Switch's, Fitting's, Drill's etc down inside our racking so "other" managers don't find out and squeel to head office... Anyway's, is there any Bob's or Dave's left at your local hardware store that you can call on, for all those weird and wonderful things we needs to make all our Instructable dreams come true???

Because shipping across the pond totally sucks we opened up a Spreadshirt store in the UK as well. Shipping for UK members should be a lot cheaper now.So if you're on the other side of the Atlantic, check it out! UK Instructables store

We have a new t-shirt store open! Choose your own design and what kind of shirt you want. It's entirely custom and up to you!We shut down our Instructables Store a little while ago, but wanted to keep a variety of shirts available without worrying about inventory. So we've created a store on Spreadshirt where you can choose your own design, place it, resize it, and get it made.Let us know what you think! Instructables t-shirt store

Unfortunately we've closed down the store for a while. You can get t-shirts and other goodies through us by winning contests! ---------------------------------------------------------- We very recently opened up the Instructables Store! Right now it's still very early and only has a few items in it, but we are going to be expanding it a bit more soon. Currently available are T-shirts, packs of Sugru, and a couple of cardboard kits. Next to be added are more cardboard animals for construction. After that we'll be looking to add a variety of very limited edition items. It will be experimental and we hope to learn a lot from it as well as offer up fun and unique items to all of you. Again, that's the new Instructables Store! Thank you.

I am a new member here, registered, all of that. After I took care of that, I tried to visit the store. The first block was the declaration that I wasn't signed in. Oh, but I was! However, I tried to sign in again - but screen asked twice for email and no blank for user name. I got rejected there, tool Not to be outdone, I came back today with determination. Ha! Just run a ditto through all the problems. Maybe I am being discriminated against because I am Firefox - perhaps it is because I am a Macgirl. Whatever the reason, everything else works OK - but you won't ever have to worry about selling me anything if you won't open the door.

He told me he was on a road trip out west and he cane across this warehouse store. He later sent me the link. The place is really cool! Definitely worth checking out the website! Maybe it will strike up and idea for someone! http://www.westendsalvage.com/

I've made several hydrogen generators via electrolysis, but every time I failed to store the generated hydrogen under (some) pressure. In this-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9Q6gDKP2R0 video they used an emptied fire extinguiser to store the hydrogen. The only problem with this is that they use a chemical reaction to generate the hydrogen whereas I want to use a renewable source (electricity). I have a compressor so I could use that to generate the pressure. Has anyone got any ideas on how I could store hydrogen under pressure? Thanks

Hello Friends! Well, in my last forum I said I would start an online store, and I did. Yay, go me. I made a storenvy called twostars (http://twostars.storenvy.com/). I am currently selling, the whale, dragon, Espeon, and a bag I made using the crocodile stitch. If you like what I make, but can't crochet yourself, this is a great place to get them. For the dragon and bag, I have tons and tons of color options to make is super customize-able. If you have any suggestions on what else I should make and sell there, I would love love love to hear them. Enjoy your day and don't forget to do that one thing you have been putting off doing.

So, the company I'm working for just ordered me to start a clothing store in.....Manila, philipines; to function as a showroom and clothing store they hope to expand into a chain.... My life is really random. Anyway, they own a new used clothing store factory down there and will supply my stock. Everything else about the store is up to me including design and layout. I'd love to have some instructables projects used in the store which might expand into a chain. Please recommend me some! When we start the store I'll give credit or even pay royalties to the authors

When Eric and I were in NYC earlier this year, we got an early tour through the half-finished construction zone that will soon be the Lion Brand Yarn store. It should be awesome when finished - I'm jealous of all of you who live in the NY area and can visit! Official opening date is November 18, at 34 W 15th Street. Check it out!The Times Square billboards will be running Lion Brand Yarn ads for a bit on opening day - they've put up a mock-up for those of us who can't be there to view it in person.

I was browsing around some of our referring sites this morning and I found a couple of interesting posts on notmartha.org. Bacon Cups >> I had an occasion calling for bacon themed food and my mind immediately turned towards the famed bacon mat. I needed something a little more single-serving though, so I decided to attempt bacon cups. In the bacon mat instructions there is mention of draping the mat over an overturned metal bowl and cooking it so that it would turn out in as a bowl shape. I decided to try using the backs of various muffin and mini cake pans, I ran out of bacon before I got to try as many as I would have liked so I'll have to try more at a later date. Any excuse for more bacon. DB Clay Wallet >> The people at DB Clay gave me a Version 3 wallet to give away! I hope you don't mind if I had a little look at it, it's excellently manufactured. DB Clay makes limited edition wallets out of a material they call Tope: "Tope is strong. Tope is durable. Tope is heat and cold resistant. Tope is smooth textured. Tope is water resistant. Tope is robust. Tope is eco friendly." The material feels great, and I bet if they sold it by the yard Etsy makers all over the world would buy it like crazy. I thought these were really cool wallets and then I found out you can get one for 50% on their website for the next 6 hours. So if you want/need a cool wallet, here's your chance.http://www.dbclay.com/

Can someone PLEASE invent a body scanner (like a metal detector that you walk under/through) that is used in store checkouts to speed up the process and make waiting times less for lines?? I imagine it would work something life this: the tags on the items would have special chips in them (and/or metal pieces for quick detection of how many items you have), so that when you walk under the scanner with your shopping cart full, or stuff in your arms, it nearly instantly calculates how many items you have and at which prices. Then you can use your card or cash to pay for your purchase in that same machine (like an ATM). Would be BRILLIANT! Thanks :)

Hello everyone, I just found this site last night and lets just say that i didnt get to much sleep! A quick introduction about me. Im 24y old guy from sweden. I loved taking electronic stuff apart as a kid (not so much putting them back together) and i did some experementing in school but it soon faded. I then went on to become an electrician(house/construction installations) and have been working as one for 6 years now but never really went back into electronics. The last few years LED's has been getting big as the main lightsource in our homes but the comercial solutions aren't always satisfactory, hence my renewed interest in this. Only thing i've done outside of work is built some computers but never really modding. As if i didnt have enough to do in my spare time i now wanna get into this, so i have a few questions on how to get started: - What basic tools do i need? Soldering kit, precision screwdrivers, multimeter......more? -What store is best for getting supplies/tools? Is it ebay or do you prefer a specific company? Any site that is better/worse to use living in sweden? Also should i stock up on basic components or just get what i need for my projects? -Is there any other communities that supplements this one? Any Swedish sites perhaps? -Anything else i should know before buying some stuff and starting? Right know im mostly focused on mods involving LED and lighting in general. Suggestions about that? Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section but i didnt really find any better place. I know this might not be as exciting as the other questions in here but all input is greatly appreciated! TLDNR: What do i need to know/have to get started modding electronics? Cheers!

Hey, this is just a question for people who have opened up stores in the Marketplace (or are trying to sell kits, or just want to have some input. :-) ). I just opened mine up today... Shameless Plug.Is anybody getting any activity in their stores? I mean, has anyone made any sales? The Marketplace is great, I just wonder how much activity goes on there.

If I'm making a lot (10 litres) of fizzy drinks with CO2 is it okay just to store it in a large plastic container? One of my friends told me that if I put it in the wrong type of container (e.g glass) it can explode. Help?!

Hey guys! I just got this cool little temperature (LM35) and I had a small problem. I want to upload this sketch to my ATtiny45 and put it on my plane so I could get the temperature from above. Only problem is I have no way of seeing it. So is there a simple, easy solution to storing a couple of numbers? I though I could just set the temperature every 3 minutes to a variable, but if I turned the board off, the data would be lost. So I don't need to store tons of memory just a couple numbers! Thanks!

Hi, I am working on a project that measures temperature and current, store it on an SD card (csv file) and send them to a website. I decided to sample the signals every 5 seconds and store the data to the SD card using time interrupt (TimerOne). My plan is to sample and store data for 1 minute and then read the sampled data from the SD card and store them into 2 Arrays i.e Array1 for temperature and Array2 for the current and send the data to the website. Thus far I have managed to sample and store the data using the time interrupt. I also included a count variable in the interrupt subroutine so as to know how many times the interrupt has occurred. Since I am sampling and storing the data every 5 seconds and I want to read the data stored in the SD card every minute, so when count = 12 I would like to read the last 12 readings (24 since its current and temperature ) and store them into 2 Arrays. The problem I have is that I do not know how to read the data from the SD card and store them into two Arrays and would like your help. Note: the Reading of the SD card will not be in the Interrupt subroutine Any help or suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks Muundu

Storing electricity in homemade rechargeable battery ... I've read lots of things about cranking the shaft of a conventional motor to create electricity. Can the electricity be stored for later use in a homemade rechargeable battery? Also, does anyone have an idea on how to make such a rechargeable battery? Thanks.
