Is there a store where I can find a servo motor? Answered

I need a continuous rotation servo really fast, so I can't wait for shipping (a normal one would work too, I can modify it for continuous rotation). I live in New Jersey, but I can go to New York (city) too. I just need to find an actual store where I can buy one, not something online. Thanks!

Harware stores 80 Vs 30,000

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???

Instructables 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.

Problems with the "Store"

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.

How to store hydrogen under pressure

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

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.

How long will a lithium battery store? Answered

If I bought 2 rechargeable lithium polymer batteries for a cell phone, but only needed one for now, could I store the unused battery until the first battery quit charging (and was garbage)? If the above question makes ZERO SENSE, let me try explaining it another way: Ok, you have this fancy gadget that you want to keep functioning for many years. Eventually, the battery inside won't be able to take a charge, and the battery will be obsolete and no longer sold. Would it make sense to buy extra batteries ('stock up') and store them for a time when the original battery went bunk; would the stored batteries be like brand new after many years (these batteries would have never been charged before.. they would be still originally packaged)? Hope that actually makes sense :D -Neph

Bacon bowls and cool eco wallets

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/
