Don't know if I can get help here or not, but my ceiling fan lights blew out all at once when I flipped on the wall switch. New bulbs don't work, but the ceiling fan still does. I'm trying to bypass the wattage limiter to see if that fixes it, but I don't know how to reconnect the wires. It's got three wires - a blue one that connects to the pull chain switch, a red on that connects to the 9-pin connector, and a white one that's crimped to three wires from the bulbs. If I disconnect those, what do I reconnect them to?
Looking to build pic related in my back yard. Ive checked google and seen a bunch of different ground attachments for securing the posts but Im not sure which is the strongest or if I should even use them.
What Im trying to figure out is, because i'll be swinging around on this, what is the best method to secure this into the ground and have it completely solid without any movement?
>>1096749 You know the round posts they use for small electrical poles? I'd go to a lumber supplier that sells to the public to buy that. The key is burying it about 4-5 feet down for maximum stability, but less would work as long as you're using cement. Make sure you dig a decent radius, don't get lazy or cheap out. Keep your actual bar lengths as close together as you can without making it difficult to use, so as to avoid the bars bending over time.
If you don't want the bars to spin, drill your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This isn't so much of a DIY question as it is a standard home maintenance question. What would be good service to use of testing one's basement for molds, mildew, radon & carbon monoxide. Recent family health concerns have lead me to want to check if the home is the issue. Would any basement restoration service do?
>>1096283 Hijacking this thread for /diy/ question, my apartment bathroom shower area has a fuck ton of mold, as I have not made any efforts to clean it in 2years~ . It's getting anyone because now the floor of the tub is getting slick from the mold. What is the best way to kill it easily?
>>1096203 What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a porcelain doll with some small hands and a few of the fingers are chipped off. I don't know where they are now.
Is it possible with some sort of material, to mold new fingers and then paint over and repair the doll's hands so they are whole again? The hands structure are much like this one here (fingers merged together), with two of the fingers halfway chipped off
>>1096111 Is it possible? Yes. Will you ever get anywhere close to making it look decent? No. The coating is baked on when they fire the porcelain. Anything you "paint" on later where never match and will look worse.
I have an old Webber grill. These bars have rusted out for like the 3rd of 4th time in its history. They are collapsing in to the bottom so it's time to replace them. This time, instead of shelling out some major buccaroonis for new bars, I'm thinking about a /diy/ solution. I don't have a lot of tools to work with, and I'm not sure what gauge/ metals I should use. I am thinking if I can find the right size piece of sheet metal steel at a right angle, I could just take it to a garage and have them lop off the bars in the correct dimensions.... Comment too long.

I would only need (2) of these if that was the case: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-2-in-x-96-in-x-1-16-in-Thick-Aluminum-Angle-800047/204604756?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal1_rr-_-204604755-_-204604756-_-N
From that pic they look like around/between 1x1x1/16 and 1-1/2x1-1/2x1/8 formed angles. Surface looks like plain hot rolled steel. also: >rusted out for like the 3rd of 4th time in its history
You can get angle iron at large hardware stores. The difference is that the "bend" wont be rounded like that but a 90 degree sharp point. You can get them in stainless too but it's a lot more expensive, harder to cut, and may not be locally available (shipping cost). Stainless also transfers heat slower.

Hello /DIY/ I was wondering the best way to make armor for cosplay like my pic. I was thinking about having a papercraft base with paper-mache to give it the hardness and thickness. Any other idea, suggestions?
>>1095988 Here's how you go about it, it will definitely need a base of some type that will be the bulk of material, foam is excellent for this because it is easy to carve with a $20 harbor freight hot knife but you can go with wood or something else just cut the rough shapes as close as possible to the final shape, then grab some bondo and gloves and give it a healthy coating of bondo bigger than the final shape. You don't need to make it perfect because the next step is sanding, use 36 then 80 then 120 then 200 grit... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Someone explain the imitation crab meat meme. Is it just from this image? I get the feeling the way you guys use it there's a little more to it. I understood the pallet and shipping crate ones after a couple days and I've been on this board a few months now.
PS Nice board very informative even though [s4s] is better
>>1095632 We'll tell the story slowly, but I have to warn you, this is a slow board.
This one time a guy came on here and asked where he could acquire I believe it was a ton of frozen, imitation crab meat. This was before bunkerbro to my recollection, however at the start of the shipping container nonsense.
So I have a problem where I keep learning new skills that I will never use. For what ever reason this week I have an itch to find gold. There is no gold in my state (Indiana) except for specific glacier run off, but as luck would have it, there is such deposits and a large stream in my back pasture. The only thing left to do now is try to find some gold. Problem is I don't know what the hell I'm doing, so are there any amateur/professional gold prospectors here who would like to give me some tips that I may be overlooking?
As for my sluice I'm planning... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What's the best scroll saw? Or what are the things I should look for in a scroll saw? Is the Dremel scroll saw hybrid a meme? Also, some saws' speeds are two-step, some are adjustable, does it really matter? Going to cut wood mostly but maybe plastics and acrylic shit too but not that much I guess.
>>1095472 I dunno, but a family member recently came across an old scroll saw at a sale and got it for me for Christmas. I never really wanted one, so I've got no idea what to do with it. What are some ideas/what are you gonna use yours for?
Hi my internet friends. So, my tool box lock broke and I need a good idea about how to fix it. For now I did some redneck repair but it's not a solide solution and if I don't fix it properly I will end up with my tools all over the floor any time soon.
Thanks Anons I know you can help me, I need to know how to start producing this. I work with a lot of nice wood (amazonian) and have free access to tools and labor. Were do I import this tech, and who can help accomplish this. i) the magnets ii) the circuit board iii) the receiver. Money is no issue.
So I want to do a little, art project if you want to call it that; I want to make a transformer action figure look more "realistic". Basically what I want to do is replace virtually all the plastic pieces with die cast metal equivalents. Other things I'd want to do is make working pistons, wire leds, and perhaps somehow incorporate silicone and faux fur for the "beast mode". If I'm ambitious, later on I might re-engineer the toy entirely to include more points of articulation and better ways to cleverly disguise the robot mode when it's in... Comment too long.
