Get one of the iFixit kits from Amazon, some of those have them and they're decent quality, I have one.

I found this in an abandoned warehouse, the box it was in had some chinese lettering on it, but was otherwise nondescript. it deploys to around 5x2 meters. and shrinks back down to 1/2 a meter or so. theres 8 springs total on it that snap it open once you get it started with your hands. also there is a flat head screw in like half of the black end caps.

My apartment has me paying for electricity, but not water. Is there enough force in my water faucets to generate a substantial amount of electricity, enough to noticeably lower my electricity bill?

Saw one interesting method. Anon used a big coil of copper tube to run a hot water loop tied to a box fan. Heck, even radiant heating could work. But I doubt the water will be hot enough.

I used to fill up several gallon milk jugs with hot water and set them under my desk at Uni. It did create some radiant heat. Fucking dorm room was drafty and had shit for insulation. They didn't allow plug-in heaters for "safety". Yea.. cheap ass fuckers knew everyone would be running one. They got after me for daring to caulk windows and put up insulation board. After that I moved to a better shithole.

What kind of shithole country are you from?

So, /diy/, I'm looking into casting some stuff in pewter starting next year. Pouring, not spincasting, since I just don't have the space for that kinda setup.

What sort of silicone or rubber would you recommend for making my own molds? I'm looking more at RTV stuff than anything that takes extra long to get ready, but I'll take what I can find.

I'm in the USA, too, for purposes of buying stuff.

I was more asking if anyone knew how it'd hold up on a 2-part mold. That's good to know about a retail place nearby to get it, though. Thanks.

Hey guys,
Does anyone have any idea how I can make a mold of pic related? Due to the tabs on it I don't think a two-part mold will work. Is there any other way? It takes 14 hours to print this and I need a lot of them. They are for use in automotive application so PLA plastic is not suitable.

Yes, that's what you need the second part for.
>then I could mold all parts in a 1 part mold since the bottom is flat.
Why tho? Just 3d print the mold and the insert, or make the molds out of clay and bake in the oven.

Is there any way to get this looking good again? I think it's melted aluminum on there.
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>1511311
An easier way is to wet the cooktop, sprinkle some baking soda on it, and scrape with a razor blade as if you were trying to slice off a thin layer of cooktop. Should get the aluminum(?) off.

Follow up with >>1510837 to go the rest of the way. Shouldn't need nearly as much elbow grease after the razor.

Also works for car windshields and other smooth glass.
>>
Thanks dudes. So there's no way to speed this shit up with heat applied?
>>
>>1511405
Except its the carbonic acid that results from the reaction vinegar and baking soda which erodes the scale/aluminium residue. Remove the vinegar from the equation and you may as well be using breadcrumbs.

The electricity has gone in one bedroom in my house. The light was gone too and I went downstairs and checked the box and one of the breakers were down. I flipped it up and went upstairs and the light was on but the power was still not coming from the sockets. What can I do besides call the company?

>this puts an outlet in series with the other loads..

residential wiring is never series because every device needs the full 120 or whatever. what do you actually mean?
>>
>>1512403
He's talking about using an outlet as a wire connector when connecting multiple outlets on the same branch circuit. While each load remains parallel, the outlet wiring is interrupted by each outlet. Since the path of current must go through the first outlet to reach the next, this can be seen as a series connection even though the load is parallel.

I'm lucky to not do residential so I rarely have to deal with people saving that almighty penny by using the outlet to connect two wires instead of a wire connector to connect three.
>>
>>1512403
fuck you are retarded

>>1512435
This.
Sounds like the installer didn't pigtail the connections, so one bad outlet fucked up power to the rest down the line.

Who knows. Depends on how bad the pipe was before. A toilet closet auger will work to unclog the sink if you can get the trap off and verify you went down instead of up the vent. I’ve tried to plunge them as a plumber. Rarely works

It's just like growing any other plant except it's in water. Keep it aerated, keep your ph right and make sure they have the right amount of nutrients and enough light and they should grow just fine. Most of the work has been done by breeders already so that any idiot can grow them.

I built a mantle that I am going to mount onto a brick wall in my dining room. The mantle is finished and looking good and I need to afix it to a 2x4 that will be attached to the wall. So I drilled a 3/4” hole using a masonry bit thinking I could use a butterfly toggle bolt but now I see some foam board insulation behind the brick. Any other mounting techniques? Otherwise how can I drill out a larger diameter of the foam board so the toggle will open?

If OP's goal is a NN based robot then yeah, RTLinux on the fastest hardware he can physically stick in it would be idea.

Now for the dream crushing. I'm a contributor to the FANN project so have a good amount of experience with NN. Your robot is just going to violently thrash around, twitch, or do some other stupid pointless motion. Assuming you're not using a training algorithm and relying on the randomness of 'evolution' a NN could take hundreds to millions of generations to learn even basic locomotion. That works fine on computers that can run a million generations in a minute but in the world of the real it'd take years.

How can you download a stream from https://www.animalplanet.com ?

I've tried capturing the stream using the *.m3u8 file I found using developer tools in chrome. This method has worked for some other websites, but nothing seems to happen? Any have any insight?
