As the title suggests, I've just found a half-decent garage that I plan on renting long term. I don't want to spend too much on it since I don't really own it, but given you had some pocket money... what would you do with this?
Sorry for shit pics, I've just taken them off the listing.
/inb4/ bulldoze the whole lot
back of the garage has a little office area with tacky flooring. Also has electricity points in various places.
More or less it, nothing great to look at... I'm thinking of just painting the whole thing top to toe.
In a relatively new apartment, seems like they would expect a wall mount to go here in the middle of the living room. However I worry putting it right above this cable port, in the bottom of the picture is setting myself up to drill into a line. Am I being overly cautious or do I need to do something to check for sure? Many thanks

The white paper is where I'll be drilling, in the center of the stud
Could I used mattress springs to forge a rapier battle-ready rapier?
Can anyone help me to identify this 3 pin connector?
Where are some good things to take apart to get belts / gears like pic related? I've tried DVD drives / floppy drives but finding ones with actual belts seems pretty rare. Obviously my local radioshack store stocks them, but they're super expensive. And I don't want to wait a month for aliexpress to ship.
What size? Inkjet printers always have at least one lightweight belt to move the printhead, and occasionally one or two more to operate the various drive rollers and feed mechanisms.
I do stress "lightweight", however. They're usually no more than about 5mm in width, and in a pitch substantially smaller than even GT2.
Hey /DIY/, need your help please.
I picked up this Chinese made jewelry box for $2.50 from Goodwill today. Brass is in great condition, push-lock is intact, and the silk liner is *perfect.* Unfortunately, there's this bigass crack in the top.
How do I fix this crack? The top looks like it's five pieces, 4 sides with basic dovetail joints covered by the brass corner pieces. The "top" of the top is a single piece that looks like it was glued on top.

not easy. going to need to reglue and fill the crack in with filler, and then restain/paint. would be more worth your time to build a new box that you didn't buy for 2 bucks at a (((goodwill)))
I have really fucked up. I'm in my mid 20's and have been kicked out of school for a year. I want to get a real job and save up money in the interim, and hopefully fix whatever it is that's wrong with me.
I would like to enter an apprenticeship but I have no experience. I'm pretty fit, and am used to manual labor. I pay attention well and have no problem putting lots of time and effort into my (non-academic) work.
How do I go about finding an apprenticeship? Would they even except me or am I too old/inexperienced? About how much should I be expecting to make, and how soon? I won't ask for advice about unfucking my life, but feel free to throw out any wisdom you'd like.
>>1241176 In another thread OP bullshit his way into a blacksmithing apprenticeship with 0 experience or know how so do that and just learn how do the basics with tutorials on YouTube and study up
Go into the military and find a position that can train you for what you want. I did welding and then learned how to manage a reactor. You could use some training and the military needs people all the time.
Are you asking about round knives?
If I'm living innawoods won't the cops show up and shut me down for not having running water?
I want to create a circuit that has a delay timer so that it turns on after a certain amount of time, say 5 minutes. I have the timer dial from an old oven which is rated for mains voltage and turns the power on for the duration it is set for, then turns the power off. Can I just connect this to a relay so that when the timer turns off the relay switches the power to the other circuit on? Would this work or have I missed something important?
The downside to that is you're going to have to reset the timer every time. This would be REALLY easy to do this with a microprocessor though. A program that waits for an input signal from a button) to then run a 5 minute timer and send a signal out to a relay would be really easy to do.
Has anyone ever done something similar to that? I'm thinking to fixing my late grandma's village house, but my main concern is its proximity to a busy highway that's half a kilometer away through just a field and this muffled sound of traffic can get annoying.
I'd probably do double or triple glaze windows first
If that's not enough then id do professionally blown insulation in your walls.
If that's still not enough, then id start looking at walls. Around here in California they are just cinderblock walls like 12' tall. Sometimes two walls in parallel. It's so far away I don't know how effective it would be unless it was quite long.
Alright so /sci/ still hasn't answered my question, so I guess I'll ask you guys instead. Are there any electric speakers that produce enough force to lift their own weight off the ground using sound?
>Are there any electric speakers that produce enough force to lift their own weight off the ground using sound?
this is not a question for /sci/. they are busy estimating their earning potential, while you are doing applied research.
if you succeed taylor swift will pay you millions.
Yes, but only for a short time, and only once.
Just hook them up to 10,000 volts DC.
My friend was throwing away a demijohn because it was sitting in her yard for years and it's dirtier than hell.
I been trying everything I can think of to scrub all the dirt and grime from the inside walls.
Do you know any chemicals that eat away at dirt without scrubbing?
I can't get anything in there that's abrasive enough to clean the inside.
I love that shape.
You can use vinegar. Fill it up, forget it for a month. Use it after cleaning with normal elbow grease. I have tons of carboys and demijohns. I got a lot of old bottles left out in the forest at a dump dated around 1920-1950. I've had to buy aluminum rods from the local hardware store and make my own tools that can fit inside them for easy cleaning. Mineral build up had to be cleaned with a weak acid.

>I'm new to electronics, where to get started?
There are several good books and YouTube channels that are commonly recommended for beginners and those wanting to learn more, many with advanced techniques. The best way to get involved in electronics is just to make stuff. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.
>What books are there?
Getting Started in Electronics Forrest Mims III
Make: Electronics Charles Platt
How to Diagnose Fix Everything Electronic Michael Jay Greier
All New Electronics Self-Teaching Guide: Kybett, Boysen
Practical Electronics for Inventors: Paul Scherz and Simon Monk

>What YouTube channels are there?
>What websites feature electronics projects or ideas?
>Where do I get components and lab equipment from?
>What circuit sim software do you use?
This mostly comes down to personal preference. These are the most common ones though:
iCircuit for Macs
CircuitJS (quick, dirty, interactive)
>What software should I use to layout boards?
Any Anons got advice, for the souls that require educational help? And need drastic help with their grades.
Start your schoolwork immediately. Always try to be ahead; the moment your done with one assignment move on to the next; practice, practice, practice. Drop everything else and make school your number 1 priority. Come to terms with the fact that your procrastination is rooted in your fear of failing. Life is nothing but failure; might as well spend it trying to achieve something hard and challenging.
1. do your homework
2. use your schoolbooks
3. if someone fucks with you, let him/her hit you first, then destroy the person fast and ugly
4. looks matter
5. weed only after you are at least 19
6. have friends
7. don't give a shit. its just school, only grades matter there
