Hi I have a design submission to decorate/paint a 3 foot high fibreglass Rabbit! I want to create a pattern similiar to a wallpaper flock pattern but I don't really want to do it all by hand. I thought I could design my pattern and create a decal, transfer, (acrylic image transfer is something I am hearing and reading about) and apply it to the rabbit. Any tips or suggestions would be great. P

A fellow member was working on a project he was talking to me about. I encouraged him to write it up as an instructable but he's still in the thick of it. I created an instructable draft outlining his project adding links he'd sent me. The text is all pretty much directly from our conversations and I just wanted to help him get started since his work should really be out there. I've added him as a collaborator on the project, so he can edit it but I want to give him full control to publish it and show up as the author since I figure he'll be taking over at this point. Is there a way to do this?

I received a Pro membership for being featured, so I was using that for the 6 months or however long it was supposed to last. I waited for it to expire so I could renew my regular paid membership, which I just did. However, none of my patches transferred, I only had the 15 that I was supposed to get for the one year membership I just paid for. Before I had at least 20, so I should have about 35 now. This same thing happened before when I waited for my paid one to expire in order to use the one that I won, I had to contact Instructables to get them back. Is there a way I can get all of them back again, and maybe change it so that you still have the patches even when the membership expires?

Hello! Have you ever needed to transfer a file on one of your USB drives to a second usb drive and dont always have a computer on hand? Sucks doesn't it.. I have an idea to build two usb ports into some kind of device with a screen so that you could transfer files. However this would require a skilled programmer and I am not that. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. It would be cool to incorporate a gameboy and perhaps make the gameboy into a MP3 player as well. Just sayin: it would be nice if things like kindles or ipads had usb ports! (thats for any apple employees who may be reading this lol) -cwix09

Does anyone know how to program? It would be cool to install a USB port into a gameboy cartridge so that the gameboy could read the files and/or play music on it. You would also need to put that code/program onto that GB cartridge. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to speak up! :D -cwix09 also see my related post https://www.instructables.com/community/USB-reader-for-gameboy/

So, i just got a new ipod touch from a friend and need some help with something. I setup a new itunes account on my laptop and regestered my ipod touch to it. I've since downloaded a bunch of apps and now im looking to put my music on it. Now here is the problem; all my music is on my old ipod mini. That ipod is regestered to a different itunes account on my home computer. Now i don't want to restore my new ipod touch because iv got a lot of apps on it but i don't want to have to download all my songs again either. I was wondering wether it is possible to transfer thoes music files from my old ipod to my new one. If anyone knows how or if this is possible please help me out. Thanks, Flamethrower1010

Sooooo... I'm planning on making a very nice pretty etc etc pair of drum sticks for a friend who is a serious drummer and among other things I'd like to do to make them individual is getting a design on them - be this by staining, printing, stamping or whatever (I'm not sure how it's done professionally and I feel paint would quickly come off... :/) So, dearest Instructablers, does anyone have any guidance as to how to do this? Cheers!

Is it just me or do you have to "break in" a soldering iron before it's really usful? I've had a new soldering iron for about amonth (using it about 4 hours to 8 hours a week) and it only started to solder really well in the past couple of days. Anybody know why? Also my soldering iron kind of has a hot spot, where you the solder melts really well, that normal?

Hello, This was moved to the forums from https://www.instructables.com/answers/Would-You-Guys-Like-a-Wireless-Power-Kit/ I am the author of the Wireless Power instructable here.  Over the course of the past year or so, my instructable has had just under 200,000 views and 600 comments. I have found that many people are actually 'recreating' my circuits and making their own wireless power systems. I was thinking the other day, wouldn't it be great if there was a "Wireless Power How-to Kit," which would include a how-to guide, a solderable circuit, and all the components necessary to make a wireless power system. This would be for all of the people who would like to explore inductive coupling, but do not know where to start. I think this kit would help a lot of people... What do you think? Would you like a kit like this? Any tips for creating the kit?  https://www.instructables.com/id/Wireless-Power-Transmission-Over-Short-Distances-U/

Hey, I'm working on a wireless power transfer system and I'm planning on running it on 12vdc with a 2n3904 transistor, but my power supply supplies 2 amps. Now the question is, will the transistor draw only the current that my transmitter coils draw, or will it simply draw it all for supplying the coils. I have not yet determined how many turns or what resistance they have yet, I'm still in early stages. I just don't want to ruin one of my few transistors. I know the absolute maximum current this specific transistor can handle is 200ma.

I started this project about a week ago after seeing the Instructable Ã¢â¬â€ https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-a-strikeheliostatstrike-paraboliI made mine out of cardboard and then coated the cardboard Ã¢â¬â€ front and back Ã¢â¬â€ with fiberglass resin for stiffness. I covered the inside with tinfoil to test it out and find the focal point. It worked great with the focal point at the center of the dish even with the lip of the curve. I then removed the tinfoil and replaced the tinfoil with mirrored Plexiglas. Now it works awesome. I have a 30Ã¢â¬ï¿½ parabolic mirror that can ignite wood almost instantaneously at the focal point of the light.Next I constructed the heating coil to run water through. This is made from a large 1 Kg coffee can, 16Ã¢â¬â¢ of ÃÂ¼Ã¢â¬ï¿½ copper tubing with end fittings, and the glass lid of a small sauce pan (handle removed). The outside of the coffee can is painted flat black as is the copper pipe. The copper pipe is coiled to a coil 4Ã¢â¬ï¿½ in diameter and 6Ã¢â¬ï¿½ in length and inserted inside the can with the ends extending from the side of the can through two drilled holes. The inside of the can is not painted, but left shiny. The glass lid is then taped over the hole with aluminum metal tape covering a minimum amount of the glass Ã¢â¬â€ about 1/4Ã¢â¬ï¿½ around the edge.The coffee can is then suspended over the mouth of the parabolic mirror by a three point 6Ã¢â¬ï¿½ chimney pipe stand-off. The canÃ¢â¬â¢s mouth is centered at the focal point of the mirror so all of the light being reflected by the mirror must enter the coffee can. Hoses are hooked up to the copper pipe fittings and these lines go to the feed/storage tank.The problem with the conventional set up from here is that the speed the water moves at (slow) to be heated to a great degree causes such great loses through convection, this system is not really feasible. I propose a new idea Ã¢â¬â€ or a new twist on an old idea.I noticed that the solar heat generating station use a black water pipe inside a glass vacuum tube to generate heat from the sun for heating water. I said to myself that this is a great idea and plan on building the next heating coil in a vacuum chamber. But, I also came up with the idea that the if the water is heated in this manner, why canÃ¢â¬â¢t it be transferred to the storage tank in a similar manner.If the feed lines were suspended inside a larger outer line and the outer line sealed tight and vacuumed the heat transfer due to convection would be almost nil. I estimated that with a total convective area at 100% the use of plastic stand-offs (8 @1/8Ã¢â¬ï¿½ thick over 12Ã¢â¬â¢) the convective area would be reduced to 0.6%. Unbelievable! Even if this rose to 5% it is far beyond anything in use today by the home owner. Stretches of pipe going 100s of meters would no longer be un-heard of. You could place the dish in a close by field away from the trees and house and pump the heat back without losing it to the ground.This would also work for outdoor wood furnaces if use today. An outer pipe could be added over the existing pipe work, sealed, and vacuumed Ã¢â¬â€ almost all heat lose would be gone. And much larger stretches of pipe could be used here also. They would no longer need one furnace for the barn and another for the house. With this system, the pipes could even be run above ground, if desired, in some cases.This could also be used to replace insulation on cooling lines also.The key to the system is minimal contact between the inside and outside lines, and the vacuum between the two lines. Remember, there is no transfer of heat through convention within a vacuum, because there is no air for the heat to transfer through.As with all the new ideas this could get costly depending on the scale of piping you are dealing with Ã¢â¬â€ but the savings from reduced heat lose will far out way these cost in the near future.I may get an Instructable out for the Energy efficiency contest, but will be hard pressed.

Hi, I have been trying to do the step-by-step tutorials on how to do the CitraSolv image transfers and I can't get the image to transfer. Everyone is commenting how quick and easy it is......well - it is but when I lift the paper I have no image! I went to Staples for some toner based black and white photocopies of my image. Came home and did everything it said to do. No image! Went to Kinkos the next day and the man behind the counter assured me that all the copiers were toner based cartridges (I even opened up the side door and saw the toner cartridge myself!). I made some more copies and followed the instructions for the transfer and still - Nothing! No image. I burnished harder, added more liquid, held my mouth just right...... What the heck am I doing wrong? I really want to do this for some pillows I am making for a gift for a friend....... Anyone? Help please......

Hey guys, This is a transfer rifle that I made a few days back. It outwardly resembles the TR/NAR, but is totally different internally. It uses a true trigger mech that I invented, as well as a transfer mech that was also designed by me. It shot about 50 ft., but that was only with one or two old bands. It was really comfortable, and I would have liked to finish it, had I not taken it apart to build the NAR+TR8+ZKAR. Enjoy, and go ahead and ask questions if you have any. -The Red Book of Westmarch

Would it be possible to transfer data between two computers at the same time using a single large optical disc? One laser would write to the disc while the other would read it when the disc rotates around. Maybe a magnetic disk like in a zipdisk would work better? An alternative to a disk might be using magnetic tape. I've had this idea for a while and now I've finally illustrated it, Is this at all possible? Also, why when I upload pictures to my library Instructables craps the quality and turns them into smuddgy blurs?

Hey all; I need a way to transfer 1,000,000 rubles.... NAH just kidding. I have someone that says they are in Australia, and they would like to purchase my HOPE ticket, but their paypal "has been canceled". Can anyone come up with a safe (and cost effective) way of them making a payment without me having to give out my home address? Cost effective = would not cost me anything or at very least $5 or less. I might even see it in my heart to award a patch to the best answer :-) Athough, I will have to find some time to actually make one (or ask one of our resident artists to help ;-) Please understand....I am not asking anyone to help me DO the transfer, I just need an idea on how the fellow CAN get the money to me without telling him where I live.

Hey everyone! I'm in the process of etching my first PCB. I have a few questions. I'm using the toner transfer method, with hydrochloric acid and a little hydrogen peroxide as an etchant. Anyway, I transferred the toner to the board, but I believe the glossy paper I used may have been a little too thick. The toner transferred correctly, but i can manage to get all of the paper off. I've tried a tooth brush and a soft towel. My question is, if I just go forth and etch the board will the paper dissolve with the copper on the board and give me a clean result anyway? Will the copper covered by the paper not be removed? are there any cons to this? (such as not being able to reuse my etchant) Thank you all, your help is appreciated Ken

Hello, I wonder if you have any information or guidance on the following:- Is there a service which transfers content from handwritten letters, or in images, such as in a fax service, to typed text which can then be sent to an e-mail address? Would there be some sort of security / anonymity / privacy involved, as there is with e-mails and post? Many people who require help on benefits, housing (travellers, homeless) do not necessarily have access to a computer, yet most of this information and guidance is available online. This is great for those who have access, but what about for those who have not? I know of PO Boxes which give anonymity, but this only works from one person to another, and only with written material. Any ideas or suggestions of such a service would be much appreciated.

This is my newest project-the BTPA-7. BTPA stands for bullet transfer pump action. This gun brings out the new year of innovation, as it is my most innovative and successful gun yet. It is a bolt action gun, making for superior efficiency, combined with a pump, making for a high ROF. Unlike other bolt action guns, however, this gun uses a pusher to transfer the bullet to the firing chamber, and also unique to other bolt action guns, the bullet stays there until it is fired, no matter how you shake or tilt it. Right now I have most of it done, but do not have the pieces for the ram guide, which is crucial to making the gun fire successfully, keeping the ram in tact as it is pulled back. Here is a video of the bullet transfer system: And here is a video of the gun with the pump (I also removed some pieces that were getting in the way of the trigger so now it works perfectly) Let me know what you think.

This should be easy, i will be looking for my cables after this this, so this is a safety net if i fail, i want to transfer a meeting recorded using the iphone/itouch italk app to my PC, i never used the app before, so messed up by not pretesting thoroughly, i still probably would have missed the limit on file size. i bought the premium version of italk next, big $2 , but it downloaded as a separate app. with no files to transfer, i figure rather then go crazy reading all the stuff i would take a earphone cord and plug it into one of my PC line in audio jacks and just play the file. like i did 20 some years ago with cassette tapes and vinyl. wish they would have put the limits on the front screen, i would have spent the 2 bucks to save all this i looked for a folder to just import the folder or cay the folder the itouch, just accessed the dcim folder, the file is aiff and about 90 minutes so i if had a program to look into the the itouch i am sure i could copy it, would be way faster too, like 90minutes! anyone know a open source utility that would get me in into the itouch and get this proprietary hidden file? thanks in advance. /

For two years or so before I joined site, I've been building K'nex guns. Here are my two recent weapons of plastic destruction. The Oodammo pistol I built (The D2OP) or (The Dark Owl's Oodammo Pistol's) most interesting feature is that the mag tilts and locks downwards due to friction. It also features: A no rubber banding required trigger. A high mag cap. A comfortable handle (at least for me). Iron sights. The above mentioned magazine. All it needs is a better ram rod; I didn't put much thought into it. Second on the agenda, we have a NAR reminiscent pistol. it, instead of using the NAR transfer, uses my own custom DOT system (Dark Owl Transfer). Yeah, I just made that up now. It sounds good and everything. Wow! Actually, this gun has a name now; it's the DOT Pistol. Funny how this works. Anyways, this transfer is unique not only in its design but in its removability. When you pull down the lock as shown in the pictures, you can take the transfer right out, turning it into a regular single shot if you so chose. It's other features are: Very good range (I haven't tested it, but it goes considerably far with one rubber band). Comfortable Handle (But not as comfortable as the D2OP's in my opinion). Removable hatch DOT system (explained above). Bullet Lock. Sadly, it has no sites, but from what I've heard, not everybody wants them, anyway. Both of these guns are now posted with instructions to all those that are interested: The D2OP: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-D2OP-Dark-Owls-Oodammo-Pistol/ The DOT Pistol: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-DOT-Pistol-Dark-Owls-Transfer-Pistol/

Good evening Sir, Madam, I am currently attempting to build a circuit for a college module that would use vibration data from a dc motor then send it to a microprocessor before transferring the data via Bluetooth to a pc. I have trawled through numerous sites for the correct components to use but. My question is this. Is there a Arduino code that would enable this idea to be successful? Having never written a code I am somewhat stumped and stressed out to the max. I would be grateful of any help or advice you can offer, Thank you in advance for your time over this, Best regards Mark sheldon

Question: I've gotten a nice sized scrap of sign vinyl from where I work at, and I'm wanting to cut out a replacement logo for the side of my pedal-start moped. I can do it by hand okay if I could transfer the design onto the sign vinyl and follow it. (because, I don't have access to a vinyl cutter or a Cricut type machine.) Can you do the toner transfer method from a transparency made in a laser printer, or would that melt the vinyl? Or, if cut to proper size, could you print directly onto the vinyl, if the printer's paper path were essentially straight? It wouldn't have to be permanent, just on the surface to follow it. This stuff is pretty opaque, so a light table won't work either. Thanks for your time!
