Make concrete shit with less concrete?
Fill them with onions and shove them up your rectum in case you need a snack on the go
They would go up the butt pretty well
>What can i do with them?
Cut the ends off, fill it with liquid sugar propellant and add a wick. Then tape a stick to the side. Bottle rocket...

I recently joined a fraternity at a large school but no fraternity or sorority on campus has their own house, no greek row at all. I took it upon myself to start looking into being the first to implement a house which would boost greek life here and it'll be badass. Advice on this subject and/or building/finding a large house/mansion for a fraternity?

If you can't do basic research you can't rent a house. Enjoy.

Got a milwaukee M18 Fuel table saw and 10" miter saw to add to my collection. Beautiful pieces and they are pretty quiet. Not too heavy, but definitely not like some reviews where the guys are saying, "WOW OMG FEATHERWEIGHT LIKE HOLDING AIR!" Also got the accompanying stands and a bunch of new blades since I'm coming from a 12" makita miter saw that's older than I am. She's a great piece, but this one is probably half as loud and did some beautiful cuts even with a regular 40T freud on the tests I did. I'll probably put the makita in a fixed station later.

Table saw still scares the shit out of me as it's my first one, but I needed one to take lips off of some wood floor for a repair I'm doing and didn't want to fuck with the multi-tool trying to trim it by hand. Just read too many horror stories of people getting maimed or slapped in the face with kickback. I was running a board over it earlier and couldn't really feel anything and only slight noise change and was shitting myself wondering if it was even cutting. I didn't want to look either because that seemed like a retarded choice to make mid-cut. I'll get used to it I guess, just need to respect it.

Will exposed rockwool be a problem when exposed freely like pink insulation? I do not wish to die.

If you wear a respirator while handling it and cost it on all sides with a rubberized coating, it should be OK.

He will need to use it on a daily basis. The only viable option is to put it outside of his house.
rockwool then vapor barrier then drywall = safe
i'm totally credulous of big companies being dodgy af, but that seems to be one guy's personal blog, and it doesn't make any real assertions other than "factories create pollution"

do you have harder evidence of rockwool usage being dangerous?
I'm going to return it then and just use a whole bunch of bubble wrap for the bathtub. Wanted to do this as a little no cost venture anyway.

I had that problem a couple years ago. A bird flew into my garage, so I left the door open to let him fly out. Left it open for over twelve hours and that dumb fuck just kept flying around in the rafters. He was up there for two days before he figured it out and flew away. God damn it I hate birds.

I want to make a wooden box that can fit up to 30 letters, and I plan to use out of maple or oak. I want to make it pretty nice, so I want to do some vaguely fancy joinery to make the corners nice rather than having exposed endgrain. I'd be using a 1*6 plank so I'm not sure how fancy I can get with the woodworking but at the same time it also won't be expected to survive abuse so could I just cut the corners to a 45 degree angle and glue them together?

Pic unrelated.
>so could I just cut the corners to a 45 degree angle and glue them together?
I'll assume you've got a miter saw or a table saw. You can certainly use only hand tools, but that's pretty advanced.
Use a cross-cut (fine-tooth) blade if possible.
Make sure all your sides are square and every cut is repeatable. You can clamp (or even tape if you're careful) a stop block on the saw to make sure your sides are the same.
Do several test cuts on junk wood until you've got the blade at exactly 45 degrees. (Or you can have a paper thin gap on the inside corner to help accommodate glue.)
If you're using a table saw, try a spline joint like pic related. Make splines that fit pretty tight.
Clamping is the hard part and depends on your plans.

If you want it especially nice and smooth, buy a card scraper and learn how to use it.

Hey /diy/ers. So i have an unfinished basement, that is approximately 600 square feet. In the entire basement there is only 1 single electric outlet, other than the 220 for the dryer. How difficult would it be for a novice to run a new circuit (breaker box is in the basement as well) and add a few more outlets in. I wouldn't need to fish through walls or anything, since the basement is, and will probably always be, unfinished.

Go buy:
1. a 250ft roll of the yellow 12/2 with ground wire at depot. Probably $75
2. Get like 10 of those single gang blue boxes, if studs are visible then get the nail in 'new work' kind. A dollar each.
3. Get a breaker that's "20 amps" and specific for you panel brand (ie square d, ge, seimen), the old kind are $5, or for code get a afci/gfci for $50. I'd do 2 branch circuits, so get 2 if budget allows.
4. Get a 5 pack of 1/2"KO fittings and the matching 1/2" plastic bushings. $5
5. Get some a tub of plastic staples to secure the run
6. Get a 10 pack of outlet fixtures, the premium ones have tamper resistance which is code. $20
7. You'll need some special tools if you have none. Wire strippers, needle nose, razor, get a #2 square bit screw driver, a drill and a 3/4" drill bit.

-your panel has the main breaker in it (ie you don't have an external disconnect). You'll probably kys, so just pull your meter outside so the panel is super off.
-use your fancy new square bit to take front of the panel off. Take a minute to see how the others are done.
-put your first blue box within a few feet of that panel, nail it in.
-find an unused 1/2" knock out on the side of your panel and knock it out with a screw driver. Put your fitting in it and plastic bushing. Match the existing work.
-run some of your yellow 12/2 wire between the blue box and through the KO, have yourself 12" out the blue box. Tack those plastic staples on it real neatly taking all slack. Run through the KO with like 5ft of slack inside box. Tighten down the screws holding it on fitting.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
-when stripping wire for breaker use the stripping guage on back.
-if you went with the newer afci breakers, it's a little different, run the black and white both to the breaker and the coiled pigtail wire goes to the white neutral bus bar.
-while you're in there tighten all the white and ground screws on the bus bars with your sure bit a quarter turn. Knock out breaker hole in panel front cover. Close breaker panel up
-wire up the blue box. Trim the yellow sheathing off leaving a half inch inside box. Strip black and white according to the striping guage on back of the new outlet receptacles.
-do the side wire on the outlet if it has that option. If it doesn't to a little half circle bend and crimp it down on screw. These take a #1 square bit if you have one. Put ground on same way.
-screw the outlet down tight in blue box.

Put your meter back in, test. If youre just doing one circuit, you can leave the meter and breaker panel on, and work on this circuit with its individual breaker off while you put the other outlets in from the first blue box (use side wire which accommodates another wire output without trouble)

Any of you interested in diy radiation experiments? Been trying some myself, will list specifics if any of you want.

Since you are nothing but a lowly technician, let me spell it out for you:
Radiation is a silent killer. Nowhere did I make mention of how or why it is killing you, so to bring up acute radiation exposure is nonsense. The way a layman would be harmed by radiation is through unsafe handling and prolonged exposure. For example, one many people are familiar with, consider radon gas. Radon gas in your basement is a low concentration that it will not give you acute radiation poisoning, but the long term effects of breathing in this radioactive gas is damaging. If you really were some rad-tech at a powerplant, you would know the three critical elements to radiation exposure: time, distance, and shielding. A layman is likely to spend a very long time very close to a source, without shielding. Those who are not familiar with radiation, not knowing the differences between absorbed and equivalent dose, activity versus fluence versus exposure, should not be handling radioactive material. Maintaining ALARA for these individuals means avoiding exposure in the first place. Radiation is a silent killer. You do not feel immediate feedback that what you are doing is wrong, so without the proper knowledge, measuring/monitoring equipment, and dosimetry, it is best not to tinker with radioactive material.
If you truly believe what you just wrote, swallow an alpha emitter and get back to us.
>Swallow a couple microcuries
>Don’t die
>Radium dials pierce my stomach and kill me
Well, shit
You do know, it’s not that they are dangerous, but with only a moderate amount of protection they can be rendered null.
While you try and make us more radium girls, just know that being a dumbass and bringing up dumbass arguments does not win you the argument.

Hey /diy/
Some of you are very skilled either through doing a trade or general life lessons. My dad knew nothing about anything diy related and as such i can't even change a tire or drill chuck.
How do I go about learning things, specifically mechanics. If i can't change a tyre how can i hope to completely do up an old rust bucket i bought?
The plan is to install a new engine, roll cage, differential, etc. I understand how the parts work but not how to put them in

Hmm. Maybe I'm stuck in the middle. I was born in 77 and have experienced the old and new. I have a piece of paper that says that I am a mechanic and have often been amused at young ones misinterpreting data from OBD. I have learned the most from books and my elders. I am not past using the internet but, there is a lot of bullcrap there. Just look at this thread. I am older now and I have believed since I was young that experience "is" overrated though. With that said, there is reason to respect elders. They were young once too. Can't see that being old makes you stupid.

Not young (75) but the comments caused me to remember to check for updates on my Autel MD805.
Sure enough, there are some. They're ones I'll never use but I'll download them anyway coz' they're free so why not.
There’s the other side of the coin too- you get the younger generation that will be lost if they run into an uncommon issue that isn’t throwing a code. The best they can do is start throwing parts at it.
Yep. I laugh at arrogant fucks that think they are mechanics and better than old ones because they have a social media account. Perfect example, I went by a shop I hang around and was asked about high idle on a car that they threw all kinds of parts at. No code. I picked up the diagnostic handheld and noticed that the temperature was mediocre as compared to the heat my beard was feeling. The temp gage on the dash indicated normal because it was. Swapped two sensors around on the engine and idle was normal and gage read zero. Seven bucks and ten minutes including diagnose and repair. They had a hand full of guys f'ing with it for a few days. Bet they charged the customer for some crazy shit and can't realize how dumb the are. I bet they were talking shit about my old ass when I left.
Halfway through that story I was thinking to myself “how many thousands of dollars did they bill that customer”. I’m sure they ate the cost of the dumbass mechanics.

Blue just means it is a metal film resistor instead of a carbon flm, the extra bands indicate the ohms and 1 % accuracy.
Pro mini sheet says 150mA max from 3.3Vcc. Can an external device draw that much or is that a total including the arduino's needs?
An external device can draw that much, although I wouldn't push it that far. If it says 150mA, I would recommend not plugging in anything that would require more than 100mA.

Absolute Maximum Ratings should never be used in the design process.
I wasn't intending to, just trying to get a figure of how much headroom I would have and whether it would be limited by the arduino operation. I'll probably use a separate voltage regulator anyway.

Basically, no.

You may already know that you can provide 3.3 regulated volts to Vcc, or you can provde 4 to 12 volts on RAW and the onboard regulator MIC5205 regulates this to 3.3v. That chip is limited to 150 mA total output.

If you provide regulated 3.3v to Vcc then the AVR spec is what matters, and it's 200 mA max total through Vcc or GND, and 40 mA max for any GPIO pin which will allow you to draw 50 mA more.
