poorfag here. I have some old pci-e power cables from a corsair modular power supply that burnt up (I know, will never go with corsair psu again).

trying to come up with a way to turn it into a connector so I can use a better pci-e card, but unsure of the pinouts and where to connect what to so I don't burn it all up. Did a quick google search, but still a bit fuzzy (modular cable is all black wires so no color coding available that way). any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to remodel a shower in my house that's on a slab. It looks like the cut a hole out in the concrete for the shower area, about 3-4 inches below floor level, and then filled it with concrete to make a shower pan. I don't want to learn how to pitch concrete correctly, so I was just going to buy one of those expensive shower pan kits from kerdi or similar company. My question is, do I need to take the old pan out completely and get down to the original foundation? Can I reuse the old one even though it's covered in thinset already? Can I put concrete on top of the old one to get it level, then add the foam pan?

I'm looking to build a large shed in the back of my garden to serve as a workshop, is decking a suitable base for one? I originally wanted to use a concrete base but it's far too difficult to get the materials into the back garden as the access tunnel is pretty small. Also, for electronics, is it better to run the overground or underground?

>> No.1411766

You can't get a wheelbarrow through access?
You still need some concrete for decking post i assume. I wouldn't have decking in a shed personally but decking base with ply on top would work. Most people around here throw a few 2x4 on done breeze blocks and sit shed on that to keep it out of the water and we'll laugh at you for anything more substantial.

>> No.1411768

It's an incredibly tight fit for a small barrow, it takes far too long to shift it through, the area I'd need would probably need 3t of sub base alone. I can bring bags of cement for the posts in easy, it's just shifting 6t of ballast and sand though, that would take far, far too long, a decking would be much quicker and I think would look nicer, especially considering I want a small deck on the front. Thanks for the advice. Any tips on shed building, I've built a few in the past, but this is the first one I'm building from scratch

You can get an Abloy cam lock for around $20 on ebay. Will likely only come with one key, but you might be able to have a duplicate made.

So I have a cheap power supply that I replaced with a little better one a couple months back. Go figure, the new one takes a shit on me.

My problem with this little fella is that the pentiometer doesn't like to give me a linear voltage change... it jumps all over. On top of that, the power output to my tattooing machine isn't consistent.

I'm thinking replace the pentiometer with a higher quality one. Is there anything else I can do with it?

>I'm thinking replace the pentiometer with a higher quality one. Is there anything else I can do with it?
not really. the power output isn't consistent because of the bad potentiometer.

Will I get arrested distilling alcohol in freedom land? Does anyone here do it?

It seems easy enough to do and my state laws allow it, but federal law makes a pretty big deal of it. I can't find any information that's not fear mongering. Weed is also legal in my state and they don't arrest anyone for violating federal drug laws so this can't be much different, or is it?

>> No.1411785

A lot of solid advice already, but I'll add to it.
As long as you aren't selling it, you will probably be fine. Selling makes it more likely for you to be found out and also carries much more severe penalties. But distilling without a permit is illegal under federal law and almost all state laws except Missouri iirc. Additionally, it may be illegal in your state to even own an unregistered still.
It is very unlikely someone is going to bother arresting and prosecuting someone with a still less than 5 gallons in capacity. But they still could. So make sure you don't give them a reason for example not paying parking tickets etc. And be sure if you share with friends you trust them. I heard one story (online) of a man's ex-wife ratting him out to the cops.
There's tons of online resources out there, I would recommend the home distiller forum. If you are distilling a wine I would recommend searching their forums - wines can actually have quite a bit of methanol. The problem is when you distill this will concentrate all of the methanol in the first stuff to come out of the still - if you then drank that without mixing, that would be bad. Common practice is to throw out the first liquid that comes out of the still - I usually throw out the first 2% when distilling corn meal/sugar, but you may want to throw out more if you are distilling a wine.

anyway, the only real difference between indoor and outdoor varnish is the indoor one cures much harder (exactly what it says on the tin), and cannot expand and contract enough endure drastic temperature changes found outside.

but since your climate is relatively mild I doubt you'll have any problem.

Does anyone actually change oil in their push mower? Year 4 of factory oil on mine.

>> No.1411765

i had a pushmower i bought at kmart back in 2000 (back when they had a throttle), all i can remember is the engine was briggs & straton and it was mulching type that you could close the side shoot.

i had an asshole alcoholic neighbor who just went through a divorce and let his kids get away with murder. my yard adjoining his property accumulated coors light cans (he got a dwi once, but his daddy was a game warden so all he got was a slap on the wrist) and his kids trash be it soda bottles or candy wrappers. somehow every stick and branch that fell from his trees which didn't even overhang on my property ended up in my yard too.

after a couple months of picking up all that crap and filling a couple 50 gallon trash bags i said fuck it and just mulched it except for branches over 1.5'' in diameter.

that lawn mower lasted 8 years, the engine still ran. the deck rusted under the shoot and a piece broke off.

>i used a stick to half ass scrape the grass out (probably why it rusted). i'd let the grass get 6-7 inches tall before i mowed it and i would mow in the rain.

>i never changed the oil once

>6 years in i decided to sharpen the blade (shook so bad from mulching all that trash i though i had parkinsons) and put a point and condeser kit in it and a new plug.

thats all the maintinance it had besides keeping it in a shed and out of the elements when not in use. it started one pull in the summer, occasionally 2 pulls were needed when it was cooler in the spring and fall.

push mowers these days don't even have an adjustable throttle anymore. i swear twice a mowing season i have to take the rewind cover off and remove a leaf that somehow restricts the air vane governor.

Elmers Glue

for what purpose? a rubber sleeve and a band clamp will work. pvc is notorious for not being gluable. they use blue goo for downpipes and green goo for pressure pipes. the green goo is a solvent that melts the pipes together.

I would suggest melting the pvc pipe so that it has a ring around it you can apply a clamp to and using a piece of rubber hose or rtv silicone to form a gasket, apply the pet tube, wait for it to dry then clamping it.

I finally got this perfect exhaust pipe head, but I'm having trouble installing it in my car. The new exhaust head has 1/3rd wider diameter than the exhaust pipe, and while it shouldn't be too hard to make an adapter to it, the pipe also has a bend upwards in the short distance before the rear bumper.

Is it even possible to install the new head here to the same height as the original pipe, and even more importantly, can the old 40mm pipe even support the weight of the surprisingly heavy double head?

How can I remove caked on piss from the pipes in a sink?

Our ex roomate is gone, and in this bathroom we found that if you ran the sink for barely even a second the water would come straight back up and then slowly drain, there were also pee stains in the sink and according to his ex girlfriend peeing in the sink was just something he did and he had been living in that room for about 3 years so I am deathly afraid of what is at the bottom of the pipe causing this.

We tried maximum strength draino, bleach, vinegar. Nothing seems to work to help get rid of all that gunk.

Any ideas? any combination of chemicals or something that would be able to get rid of the piss without harming the pipes?

The piece of something in there is a broken part of plug that is still attached to the tiny lever, he broke his plug for the sink and never told anyone, probably after the pee wouldn't go down easy.

This is really fucked up and I could use some help,

Also he said splashing, which indicates his piss is hitting the water and spraying water and piss back. maybe he has a gigantic urethra and you couldnt handle his girth.

>> No.1411798

I do not have a gigantic urethra, but yes I do mean splash back. A fine mist of toilet water and/or urine enters the air once you start pissing from a few feet high into the bowl, which hits the adjacent wall and stains it. Urinating against the side of the bowl instead of in the water probably doesn't help.
