Does anyone know hows to repair a thin cable?

Hi, I have worked on an old version of robot Nao, and recently discovered that a thin cable (see picture) from its shoulder is broken, the thin cable is very tiny, slim and can be quite fragile. I understand that I have to send it back to Aldebaran to repair, but it really costs a lot and it takes time too. Can I ask if there is anyone out there who is specialized in repairing this kind of cable? I appreciate much of your help. Thanks a zillion!!

Laser power for thin aluminum? Answered

Here's a question for you laser cnc builders out there, how much laser wattage would you need to cut really thin aluminum? Like, only slightly thicker than grocery store aluminum foil. Very thin. This cnc machine would be used to cut custom theatrical gobos (GOes Before Optics) at home. Normally, when we need a new gobo design, we build one in Adobe Illustrator and send off the design to Rosco or some other professional cutting company. But this can get pricy, and can take up to a week, so if one gets messed up during tech week (they do sometimes) we have to cut a new one out by hand. The results are not spectacular. The gobo doesn't have to be mechanically strong, and they don't warp inside of a 525w fixture due to the cool beam. You could in fact use foil, but that's a little too thin to be useful. Any guidance would be appreciated.

How do i thin out the wall of a PVC pipe?

Hi there everyone I am in a process of building a PVC bike trailer out of 40 mm PN 20 type of pipe. At the neck of the trailer where the cross-shaped yellow piece swivels horizontally - permitting the trailer turn left and right - , and just under it, where the lower red elbows swivel vertically - permitting the trailer to move up and down - are the two white pipes that i want to shave 1 or a bit more mm off of. I bought the materials but in a very interesting way the pipes don't fit inside the fittings. They need to be warmed up and then they fit inside one another getting stuck forever. No glue needed.  If i buy  the next largest fitting size - 50 mm - the gap is just too big. So it's a no go. That's why I ask you people: How do i shave off 1-2 mm of the white pipes in the picture so they slide in easily in the fittings? I want to point out that unfortunately I don't have access  to any heavy-duty machinery. So a manual way of doing this would be much appreciated.  P.S. the red dots on the picture are fixed points or dabs of glue if you like. The green dots mark out the movements of the components. For example the yellow cross is glued to the green pipes witch are glued to the red elbows witch in turn are glued to the other green pipes. Here only the yellow cross swivels on the vertical white pipe. :) I hope you got it :)

Making water cooled shoes need some advice about thin copper tube fittings.

Essentially i want to make water cooled shoes from some of the spares i have from my old pc water-cooling set up.  I want to run some thin copper tubing around the shoe which will connect to the some metal fittings that will then connect to my rubber tubing and then to the pump and the radiator. Now i know about the fittings that are available for the regular copper tubing that runs in houses but this tubing will be around 4mm and im not sure how to connect this tubing to my metal fittings which are about 3/8th of an inch i believe.  I was thinking to just use some epoxy putty or something but im sure there are better ways to do this. so any ideas?  im sure fittings are available but i dont know what they're called i couldn't get anything with a quick google search.  Edit: i didn't realise response here would be so thoughtful and all. I dont want to be able to walk around in these i just want to sit in my room and be comfortable. The heat difference probably wouldn't be too large between my feet and the air for a huge transfer so i also had thought to add a small water bath with a second small radiator init.  The copper tubing doesnt have to be directly under my feet i realise they'd probably be crushed otherwise. but the heat conduction through them must be so much better then the plastic tubing.

Thin edge of the wedge in Texan education?

Any Texans out there? Did you know what (revisionist?) plans were afoot in your education system? Even as a panel of educators laid out a vision Wednesday for national standards for public schools, the Texas school board was going in a different direction, holding hearings on changes to its social studies curriculum that would portray conservatives in a more positive light, emphasize the role of Christianity in American history and include Republican political philosophies in textbooks. There have also been efforts among conservatives on the board to tweak the history of the civil rights movement. One amendment states that the movement created “unrealistic expectations of equal outcomes” among minorities. Another proposed change removes any reference to race, sex or religion in talking about how different groups have contributed to the national identity. - A greater emphasis on “the conservative resurgence of the 1980s and 1990s.” - A reduced scope for Latino history and culture. - Changes in specific terminology. Terms that the board’s conservative majority felt were ideologically loaded are being retired. (The new recommendations stress the need for favorable depictions of America’s economic superiority across the board.) - A more positive portrayal of Cold War anticommunism. Disgraced anticommunist crusader Joseph McCarthy, the Wisconsin senator censured by the Senate for his aggressive targeting of individual citizens and their civil liberties on the basis of their purported ties to the Communist Party, comes in for partial rehabilitation. - Language that qualifies the legacy of 1960s liberalism. Great Society programs such as Title IX—which provides for equal gender access to educational resources—and affirmative action, intended to remedy historic workplace discrimination against African-Americans, are said to have created adverse “unintended consequences” in the curriculum’s preferred language. - Thomas Jefferson no longer included among writers influencing the nation’s intellectual origins. Jefferson, a deist who helped pioneer the legal theory of the separation of church and state, is not a model founder in the board’s judgment. ... Heavy emphasis is also to be placed on the founding fathers having been guided by strict Christian beliefs. - Excision of recent third-party presidential candidates Ralph Nader (from the left) and Ross Perot (from the centrist Reform Party). - A recommendation to include country and western music among the nation’s important cultural movements. The popular black genre of hip-hop is being dropped from the same list. None of these proposals has met with final ratification from the board—that vote will come in May, after a prolonged period of public comment on the recommendations. Still, the conservatives clearly feel like the bulk of their work is done; after the 120-page draft was finalized last Friday, Republican board member Terri Leo declared that it was "world class" and "exceptional." First paragraphs from New York Times Headline paragraphs from Yahoo News It occurs to me that it may be appropriate for some members to have a rather forceful word with their elected representatives - at all levels - about the damage these proposals will cause in the American education system...

I have seen many attempts with aluminium foil (ex: https://www.instructables.com/id/Interactive-Art-With-Scratch-and-Makey-Makey/) but those are based on the fact that a human finger touches them (basically it uses the conductivity of skin), whereas in my game i was to use the weight of random objects from the house (in the 50g to 500g range typically) Any idea how i should get started ? thanks fourchu

Printed Batteries Provide Paper-Thin Power.

Check this out! A team of German scientists has invented the world's first printable batteries. Thin, flexible and environmentally friendly, the batteries can be produced in large quantities for a fraction of what it takes to produce conventional batteries. The new battery is also different in other ways from conventional batteries. The printable version weighs less than one gram on the scales, is not even one millimeter thick and can therefore be integrated into bank cash cards. The battery contains no mercury and is in this respect environmentally friendly. Its voltage is 1.5 V, which lies within the normal range. By placing several batteries in a row, voltages of 3 V, 4.5 V and 6 V can also be achieved. The new battery was developed by a research team led by Dr. Reinhard Baumann of the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS in Chemnitz, Germany. "Our goal is to be able to mass produce the batteries at a price of single digit cent range each," states Dr. Andreas Willert, group manager at ENAS. The batteries are printed using a silk-screen printing method similar to that used for t-shirts and posters. A kind of rubber lip presses the printing paste through a screen onto the substrate. A template covers the areas that are not to be printed on. Through this process it is possible to apply comparatively large quantities of printing paste, and the individual layers are slightly thicker than a hair. Therefore, the battery is suitable for applications which have a limited life span or a limited power requirement, for instance greeting cards. The researchers have already produced the batteries on a laboratory scale. At the end of this year, the first products could possibly be finished.

Arduino Clock: Getting The Time from Thin Air?

hello, I have made a few arduino based clocks now & one thing I been considering making an generic version of an atomic clock that can program itself with the local time using local GSM Network. The idea came when I noticed  that an old tmobile phone I had from years ago synced time & date automatically without an account or phone number assigned to it, as soon as a dropped the new sim card in the phone seemed to do an update of some type. As I looked more into this, I noticed the phones wap (data) settings were no longer set to tmobile.wap, but was now programmed for at&t.wap.3g.net; , that along with a few other network settings had been updated during a handshake! This actually caught me off guard, I had always assumed that a data connection was required to request the time but this is not the case, the network does broadcast the time to all clients (even suspended accounts) during handshake, now if you want to use an AT-COMMAND to request the time, that requires data from what I understand. Does anyone have experience using GSM & Arduino ? Is the handshake something that could be easlily "exploited" so to speak to get the time from thin air? Any ideas would be appreciated...

How do I thin out 2-part epoxy?

I'm wanting to make some micarta-like material, using two-part epoxy and paper. I've done a test run, and the material was rigid after it had cured for a few days, but didn't cut like I hoped it would, because the epoxy didn't penetrate the paper. Part of the issue was that the paper was coated, but I'd also like to thin out the epoxy some so that it will soak into the paper better. I'm inspired in this endeavor by these two instructables: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-homemade-micarta/ https://www.instructables.com/id/Mokume-Kireji-DIY-Woodgrain-Composites/ The epoxy I'm using is 3M Scotch-Weld DP-190. The label says it contains epoxy resin, polymeric diamine, kaolin, and carbon black. The complete MSDS is here. This is what I'm using, because it's what I have. Got a case of these two-tube dispensers cheap at a yard sale. :-) So, what can I use to make this more liquid? Right now the consistency is a little bit thicker than honey. It doesn't spread out when applied to paper, and doesn't soak in at all. My limited knowledge suggests that toluene, listed on the MSDS, might work, but I'm hoping for something a bit less volatile. I'm aware that whatever I do is likely to extend the curing time, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

To support this me and Hannah Perner-Wilson have been trying to create tools for infrastructure for backpacking in the wild (also see her wearable studio descriptions http://www.plusea.at/?p=5385). The tool im working on right now is a modular lightweight desk we can suspend between trees. It's actually going pretty great! You can see Matt here soldering and building on this bench. it worked WAY BETTER than expected. I though it was gonna be TOO wiggly, or bouncy and impossible to work on. Turns out, it just worked really well! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJQrnl3-27c the only PROBLEM however was with our panels. I used these sheets of like MDF (or something). They are that material that pegboards are made out of. They were great because they were thin and rigid. But they were still pretty heavy and they absorbed water. I want your advice on materials. I want something that Is rigid! (will hold its own shape under compression and/or tension) Can support lots of tools and stuff on top Strong (will stand up to beatings in the field, and smashproof inside backpack) Thin (packs into backpack well)   Cut-able (less important) (won't give off evil fumes or particles if i need to cut or modify it at home (or even in the field) Not crazy-beans expensive (like it seems like carbon fiber panels are) I was thinking like fiberglass maybe? http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-fiberglass-sheets/=xu6e5k is that a good idea? Carbon fiber (though super expensive)? what are your ideas?
