how do I collect tritium? I hear you can get some of it by bombarding lithium-7 with neutrons, and that some of it naturally occurs in water in a minute fraction.

I looked into it once before and the components and decay chain are fairly simple. I think you just need lithium metal and americium but you also need to bombard it with a lot of protons which isn’t easy to do legally so your best bet is to just buy it in small tubes from eBay and shit.

Buenas noches, como están? He venido a 4chan por primera vez en mi vida, perdón si onions muy principiante. Vine por la razón de que le quiero hacer la vida imposible a un tipo que lleva meses acosando a mis amigos y también compartiendo pornografía infantil en varias redes sociales. El usuario hace unos meses fue baneado de la aplicación “Discord”, pero todavía sigue y sigue. Aquí les dejaré unas capturas y su dirección IP.

Good night, How are you? I have come to 4chan for the first time in my life, sorry if I am very beginner.

I'm looking for non-plastic 5/16" tees or wyes to join potable water lines for animals. The lines are vinyl flexible tubing that you push onto the barbs of the tee to connect.

However, I am reading many brass tees have lead (Pb) content that may infiltrate the water flowing through the fitting. Is this a real threat? How can I find no-lead brass fittings?

Alternatively, pictured here are stainless steel ones. How can I find these for a cheap price for like 10 of them? Any solutions here without paying $100 bucks?

Young bloke just starting out here.

Can someone explain the difference between thermal mass and insulation, im just not getting it?

>> No.2044511

thermal mass: a substance's ability to absorb/emit heat without raising/lowering in temperature itself. AKA, how easily it can be heated up, or or how long it can give off heat before cooling to the ambient temperature.

insulation: a substance's ability to prevent or inhibit the flow of heat between a temperature gradient

Low thermal mass; low insulation would be something like a metal mesh. It can be heated up very easily and does fuck all to stop temperature changes.

Low thermal mass, high insulation would be something like fiberglass.

High thermal mass low insulation would be something like water.

>> No.2044513

Thermal mass holds heat. Insulation keeps the heat in.

Put a rock in the fire - it warms up. You take the rock out - it cools down. It will cool down slower if you insulate it. It will cool down a lot faster if that rock was made out of air.

Whatever the shitty insulation between those tiny wires would hold. Small wires can deal with plenty of voltage, the issue is keeping the voltage away from the ground and super high voltage can jump some big gaps.

If you were trying to measure current through the leads instead of the clamp, that’s a different story.

Planning to make my own dipping belt like picrel. I have this very old leather transmission belt laying around (~1.5cm thick), which I'm planning to use for this. Only problem is, its too rigid to fold over for the rings. Was thinking about just drilling a huge hole on both ends in place of the rings, but I fear that it will fray and wear out too quickly under heavy loads.
Got any tips? Been using an iron chain up until now, but it hurts too much under heavy weights. I have a home-gym so looks don't matter at all.

>> No.2044500

You are going to want to burnish the holes you make. Look on youtube on how to burnish and get a wood slicker and some gum tragacanth. I honestly don't think (don't 100% know either) it will fray, unless you are putting monster amounts of weight on it, but it will probably stretch which will lead to tearing. You could try reinforcing the holes with metal grommet. If you do that you probably wont need to burnish the holes. Good luck, anon.

generally we resell the tires that are usuable still, but to avoid liabilities we let lots of "usable" but not done for tires go. you could try it but I can't guarantee they'd mount them for you or anything. possible they would though, I'm sure if other shops work differently, we just don't wanna send someone off with a tire that might explode on them 300 miles down the line. we do sometimes let people take some of the tires we'd throw out though.

what’s up /diy/, I’m starting to think about my next project which is gonna be my tiny shitty ensuite (about 3m by 1m). Not sure how to approach it yet, I’m still pretty new to this stuff and don’t really know what I can and can’t do myself, what order I should do things in, how difficult and costly things are, etc.

So what I wanna do in here, roughly prioritised:

-Deal with section of water damaged drywall (dunno where to start on this)
-Replace tiny weird sink with vanity that’s centred over the fixtures (can I do the plumbing myself? should I try and build one in place and put a premade sink on top, or just buy one?)
-Install an extraction fan (think this needs a sparky, there seems to be a ceiling cavity for one but idk if it’s suitable - house is from the late 50s)
-Move light fixture from wall to ceiling
-Remove grab bars from shower and drywall (can I easily seal the holes in the shower tile?)
-Get a taller showerhead (or just move it a bit higher) so I don’t have to crouch under it any more
-Install shower caddy and/or shower cavity (how can I tell if the wall is suitable for a cavity?)
-Remove tiny shitty medicine cabinet and replace with wall mirror above new vanity (do I need to fill the cavity?)
-Tiling - if it’s not too expensive and/or difficult, I’d do all four walls, the shower and the floor. Currently the shower is tile and the floor is vinyl. Anything that doesn’t get tiled will get painted (there’s a sample of the colour I was looking at under the window). this powder pink is sapping my lifeforce

-Install fixtures like towel rail, hand towel ring, TP holder (should be easy right?)
-Replace shower curtain with glass door or partition
-Do... something to the window? Like I see bathroom windows with a few parallel panes of frosted glass, what’s the purpose and should I do it?
-Toilet is perfectly fine so I’ll probably keep it. Shelving next to it will go once the vanity’s in and all my stuff can go in there - might get some smaller shelves, but gotta make space for the TP holder first
-I think this might be wishful thinking, but I would absolutely love a curbless shower. how do I know if the room’s suitable for one, and how much harder is it than doing a regular shower? my understanding is you just gotta get the floor on a slight grade so the water drains one way, but I’m sure there’s more to it than that...

So, like, any advice lads? where do I start? my mate said that you can find decent tile pretty cheaply on gumtree (like aussie craigslist kinda), any other tips for doing this on the cheap?

I recently fixed pic related.
Its an old design lamp my dad bought in the 80s.
I would like to switch the 12V 35W incandescent lamp with an led one.
I went for a generic 12v 3W led and its scorching hot.
The lamp has a 220v to 12v coil in the base. How do I take down the wattage provided by the coil?
Is there any way to mod it for it to safely use a led bulb?

>> No.2044275

Incandescent bulbs take a small amount of time to stop glowing when the voltage reaches 0, and by the time it starts to cool down the polarity has reversed and it’s getting 220VAC again. And this repeats 50 times a second meaning our eyes see a steady glow even though the voltage is 220 to 0 in both directions.

Yes. Make sure you have the correct antenna length and it is grounded.

>around 100 MHz
>3 meter wavelenght

so you need a 10ft antenna

No kidding. I have a spare one of this antenna and I am planning to connect it to my radio.

unless you know exactly where the radio transmitter is for the station you're looking for, that kind of antenna is going to nuke any and all reception you can get

not to leave you in the dark, that's a Yagi-Uda antenna which are designed to be very directional in nature.

I do t get it

>> No.2044251

because mexicans and pajeets are not known for being sanitary creatures.
also re sound proofing, you kind of need to do that prior to drywalling. (either via sound proofing insulation like roxul safe'n sound, or special sound proof drywall)
I guess an alternative might be acoustic panels, but i'm not sure how well those work relative to the cost.

sound proofing is a bit of misnomer, sound damping and sound isolation are good choices

removing hard surfaces for the sound to echo against should limit transmission including in walls and between floors
absorption is a good way to describe it in laymans terms large masses will help with the lower frequencies like a truck engine

Google it cunt learn something

Also curious about this. Specifically ways to limit sound traveling through duct work.
