Since then every project causes me to have a nervous breakdown. I rush things, get anxious/angry/sad at the slightest inconveniences, am overloaded with anxiety for failing, always fuck up in some slight way which causes me to get angry at myself.

Any1 here experience the same? What do? I just did a project on my car, restoring the spare wheel boot. One of the plastic hinges broke off and I fashioned a new one out of plastic. Caught myself entering a nervous breakdown shortly after starting. Had to sit myself down, accept that I need to take the time to do this thing and let myself try to enjoy it. Job is now complete and it was fun. Heat bended the plastic hinge and glued it in place.

Not sure if this is the place but looking some maybe general tutorial to paint like this https://youtu.be/w7GTMJG8tbM it s realism and all but basically a generalized method to plan out the colors, given the position of objects in 3d space(this part i have done) so now it s about "writing out" how light then bounces to each others thru reflection, refracting thru and casts caustics, bleed and disperse in around it? What do you call these and how do you, realistically "model" them so the colors and shapes of them is correct, natural?

I have some acreage I want to live on, but it's all completely empty. No structures whatsoever. I want to build a barndominium in the most economical way possible. My only concern is how much utilities are gonna cost (electricity, plumbing, etc).
I'm not looking into a huge barn or anything, something small will do. The only reason I'm not just getting a trailer home or something is because barndominiums are probably more stable. I want to put a basement under it tho because we get tornadoes a lot and so shelters are a must.

What you percieve as overcharging is consistent practice in any industry that works with equipment or parts that have very long life spans.
How many complete HVAC systems does the average homeowner willingly purchase in a lifetime?
Most people would hope for "none" and even one is a major hit even just for the equipment. When they can't put it off any longer people want the best deal *and* hope to never have to see the HVAC guy again if they can help it.
Theres no incentive to give a great bargain deal in hopes of repeat customers 15 years from now, so they make their money while they can. There"s also only 24 hours in a day so they will charge what they charge whether you are a rich guy buying $30k worth of HVAC or have a tiny job...and if your tiny job will prevent them from getting the $30k one you will get the "we dont wantvthevjob" price or if you are already in line you will go on the back burner.
Thats just how it is , dont like it dont hire them, or roofers, or ever get a transmission or rear end rebuilt.

One of the big issues with aftermarket fibreglass ones is they are so weak to impact, hence me trying to go ABS like the original ones. Forged carbon is probably a touch impractical for the size.

I need to mount a projector 2 meters above a table looking down. The mounting has to be made in a way that it can be taken apart because it's for a live video mapping showcase for college and I can't use any ceiling or wall mount. The projector itself weights about 5-7 kilograms.

I thought of making something like this (image below). I have 3D printers so I can make the joints and table grips out of PETG for a solid structure, but I don't know what to do about the actual rods of the structure. Any material that bends will probably flip the table easily if someone bumps it accidentally and any heavy material will make the build collapse or possibly fail after some time. I'm open to any kind of suggestions and comments, but please if you're gonna tell me it's not possible I would really appreciate some other solution or even a reason why my idea doesn't work. Thanks!

>>2423557
>What you are doing is making the stability of the projector dependent on the table
Yeah, that's the big issue here. Would a 3 meter a-frame made out of dowel or PVC be enough to hold it? Because if it is, I'll just mount it on the floor, I haven´t done anything similar (out of those materials), so I'm not sure about it.

>I have a hard time believing this, but I'm assuming you have tested it.
I haven't tested it on an expensive profesional tripod (which is kinda out of reach for this project), but I've tested it on common camera tripods and projector screen mounts. Anything over 2 meters needs a huge tripod and a sturdy metal pipe as the main column (sorry, I don't know the english term for the vertical rod of it lmao). That would need too much space and would leave the projector far from the table.

>How large does your project area need to be, and what is the necessary height of the projector?
I really don't have a defined project area, but about 1 meter, which means having the projector at a 2 meters height.

Maybe a jib crane made out of wood solves this? But again, a 3 meter high wooden structure wouldn't be very movable.

Sorry if I'm being annoying with all these things I keep bringing up, I'm hoping for an ideal situation that might not be possible but I'll go lowering my expectations as I get arguments about why they don't work.

Again, I haven't seen any mounts that accommodate my idea, so it's completely valid to tell me that I'm just being dumb and it's not possible. I'd just like to know why so I can learn in the process.

>> No.2423582

Are you already married to a particular projector? consider a short throw projector model that is just sitting on an shelf next to the table. Incline it downwards with a little ramp, and it will have some fine tuning menu to correct the picture to very near a rectangle.

Why use dowels or PVC? Can't you just get 2"x12' studs in your country? you're making the same structure as a gantry or sawhorse just bigger.
theyre strong enough for carpenters and machinists to trust them to hold literal tons of weight. Don't use stupid 3d printed joints, you dont need them. Use bolts, nails and screws and glue.

>> No.2423600

>>2423586
>you're making the same structure as a gantry or sawhorse just bigger
Except that to make the exact same structure I'd need it to be a lot bigger, because of the height (it would need additional support to be sturdy). I agree on the bolts and nails part, the 3D printed joints thing would've been just a complementary support for them.

>Can't you just get 2"x12' studs in your country?
I could, but it would be way too expensive to just do it as a test (also I'm assuming it'd be mounted from the floor which also makes it hard to transport). I'd need to plan a structure that ensures a good support.

>>2423582
>Are you already married to a particular projector?
Basically yeah. I already have a projector and it isn't worth it getting another one. Also the mount you're proposing would be great if it were going to be on an empty table, but since it's meant to be for projection mapping the angle shouldn't create shadows from objects placed on the table.

I'm doing an apprenticeship in instrumentation and have a pretty handy job in a pharma factory doing maintenance, we spend about 75% of the shift getting paid to drink tea. Clean rooms are a pain in the ass to work in but it's clean at least.
I have learned a lot about electrical/electronics and plumbing and it's all very useful and interesting stuff to know, you learn a lot about physics and automation too so it's very broad and a good base to go forward and do lots of different jobs or get a college degree in a wide range of stuff.
I got inspired to do it from browsing /DIY and went from knowing nothing to being able to fix appliances around the house and in the future I will be looking at making my house self sustainable for generating electricity and want to look into creating an autonomous hydrophonic farm too, I have the knowledge to get started but no time as yet.

Don't know about "best" but finish carpentry has some nice benefits as far as being able apply and adapt your skills to a number of job situations whether you do that out of necessity or just to avoid being in a rut.
The attention to detail it requires also makes you a good candidate to oversee other people whether it's on a jobsite or in a production shop setting, or doing things like warranty inspections of things like doors and window installations.
It's reasonably clean work, if you're good at it people give you time to work, it will never go out of style or be replaced by robots and unlike something like plumbing if work is slow or you want a side hustle you can make things on spec and sell them.
A lot of the skills and equipment also translate to other materials pretty readily so you can also adapt to things like plastic sheet fabrication...you can also process scrap and raw materials into usable moldings and lumber and other stuff that you can use and pocket the savings or sell to/make for others.

the correct repair should it deteriote more is a pony wall and jacks, given the failing wall is holding up your floor. monitor your gutters/water management in that area. watch when it rains, ensure drip edge works. mind the basement on rainy days ensure no water comes from the wall. if you have a sump, keep it working.
in these parts the substrate is like a sponge, it swells when water hits it enough and itll shatter rocks and poured basements if the water isnt managed correctly. to put it mildly, i just finished a pony wall here, because the guys neighbor refused to fix their gutters. took a week after the pour and now u hear jackhammers nextdoor. once he pours the weakest wall will go next if the water isnt redirected.
>>2423331 is also correct but incomplete without witnessing the water management. that shit happens either due to age shifting or the substrate grows and shrinks. that shit looks mostly cosmetic but youre not showing alot.

Whats the best way to do this? Recip saw with a metal black did all of dick and shit to it. I have most tools a normal man has.

Wet the tyre as you cut it.

Stupid idea. Large abrasive discs will cut them but steel just overheats. Read if you care why.

Consider it a lesson learned then get rid of the thing.

Whats stopping someone from just taking the heavy machinery that is left on the side of the road for construction? I mean its just sitting there with a key in the ignition...

Sawzall should work, the trick is to lube the blade with beeswax or WD40, a wooden chock and a mallet to pull the sides apart helps too

I'd like to think he hopped inside and rolled home

Any advice for tearing up the linoleum kitchen floor and putting tile down? Do the floor boards need to be a certain thickness? My wife and I were wondering if anyone has attempted this and what to expect. If its a good idea or not.

>> No.2423239

Generally when faced with linoleum, the answers that most flooring people have given is if it's still tight to the subfloor, don't bother taking it up and just build the new floor right on top of it, as it's just not worth the time ripping it off.

Are you going to be stapling mesh + scratch coat? then you are fine. If you are doing drypack, ditra or wtv I'd say pull it up. If it was my house I'd pull it up cus it would bother me forever, what would it take, a day or two?

Holy Fuck, the majority of the jobs are 33k per year. Is there a better trade to get into or should I hope the boomer dieoff makes wages rise?

Better research heavily, If still young enough join the Air Force and fix things that fly for the vested retirement and inflation/recession proof paycheck plus fun. Retirement is everything and early is best.

Trades which don't involve electricity and math and preferably some programming fail to filter morons. Mechatronics is worth a look as industrial controls will always need installation, repair, maintenance and modification and not being production work you won't be replaced by robots.

Machinist pay is low because it's fun and machine shops are in a collective race to the bottom making them a very high mortality business. Check the "hot dog cart" jokes on Practical Machinist forums for why. Machining is a great skill to have but many become millwrights to make more money.

Money and retirement packages are everything. Your working life will end soon so be ready.

Thanks, I will try to join the Airforce and hope I get assigned to the base down the road from where I live.

So whats stopping me from making a small demolition company?
>dont need license where i am
>buy sledge hammer, dexpan, saws, grinder, crowbars, hammer drill, wheelbarrow
>rent jackhammer and other large equipment
>pay someone to haul away the debris
>keep scrap metal extra cash
>call contractors or electricians if there is shit like live wires that need work on
Whats the catch other than couples bickering about which rooms need stripping and not telling the other one?

Permits.
Also nobody hires for small demo jobs. Only the big stuff people hire because small shit they can get their one brain dead workers to do it.

It's commonly called a "schoolhouse shade" anon.
They're pretty ubiquitous for ceiling fans and ceiling lamps.
Should be easy to find a replacement.

That is an OEM part, and we refuse to sell you one individually. You must buy a whole new window if you want another one of those, and no I will not tell you what it is called you dumb fucking goy slave.
