How do I go about fixing a board like this? When powered, it doesn't light up until the room it's in is above say 75F, and then it's only half of the board. When it is 80F+ ish, the whole thing lights up. Wat do?
how do you hang yourself in a hotel?they are generally designed to prevent suicidesyou can use the upper door hinge but I'm 6'2 260lbs
Take the batman cosplay on, tie a rope around your neck, put the rope on the doorknob, start to masturbate and chocking yourself.
Help me dye my hair /diy/!Tried yesterday using >pic relatedI have short, medium light brown hair, left plenty of color on for 25 minutes, and when I washed it literally everything came off
>>2444678Don't listen to this idiot >>2444680Are you sure you aren't supposed to let it sit longer? Maybe bleach would actually let it stay longer?
>>2444682Thank you!Instructions said 20-30 minutes, I think I'll try again and wait longerI'm trying to find out if I maybe messed something up before turning to bleach, but maybe that's the answerAgain thanks a lot :)
>>2444678OP,Listen to this guy: >>2444680He knows his shit.Also you should kill yourself.
Figured this would be the board for this. Got a floor safe exactly like pic related in the basement of my building, and I'd love to crack it. All online shit says "call a locksmith". Would drilling straight through the core and fiddling around with the mechanism work?
>>2444650Leave it there and go home jamal
>>2444650Unironically wearing sock and sandals.Come on brother show us the grippers
They're usually protected reasonably well on the surface, but the sides are usually just sheet metal to save costs. I would rent a jackhammer and yank it out, then use an angle grinder to slice the bottom off. If you want to reuse the safe, then in theory you could just try every combination. But 100 digits, times three digits per combo, means a million possible combos. If you tried 100 a day it could take a maximum of 27 years to do it. So depends on how patient you are I guess.
>>2444702Yes but that ruines the loot
>>2444703Not if you're careful. Go around the rim with the grinder in light passes until you're *almost* through the metal, then use a hammer to crack the end off. None of the sparks will get inside and the heat will stay low enough to avoid burning or melting anything. It's mostly heavy duty tools like plasma torches that you have to worry about, those will absolutely fry anything combustible inside.
Will they ever be displaced as the king of pliers?
>>2444574It doesn't even mean made by Turks anymore
>>2444538The me' channel locks. Simple as.
>>2444574I prefer the American brand of pliers which was outsourced to Germany for manufacturing.
>blocks your path
>>2444716What path?The path to the foodstamp line with your poorfaggot pliers?
Slightly different thread than usual. What do you /diy/nosaurs listen to while working on things? >inb4 silence
The New Testament. I absorb it so much more when I hear it as opposed to reading it. The guy on 100 chapters on YouTube has a great voice too. I also listen to mad at the internet every Friday too. Josh is hilarious.

Hey /diy/ actual retard here. I'm trying move this light switch to the other side of the wall and I've never done electrical work. I have two white, two black, and two ground wires. I disconnected all wires and put up a new gang box and attempted to reinstall the old switch. No matter how I connect these wires, everything lights for a second and then trips the breaker. What am I doing wrong?
>>2444532Forgot the picture
>>2444421It says which wires go to which terminal on the back of the switch.
>>2444532If you're watching a YouTube video that says connect the white wires to the terminals on the switch, do not watch that channel any more: they are idiots. I'm an idiot for replying to this bait, which I give a 2/10 for making me reply, but just .. damn.
None of these pictures have a switch in the box.
>>2444448>electrical tape around the whole assemblyTapefag, nobody wants to clean your dirty ass adhesive in few years. Just put a cover on it and stop tapefagging.
looking for a better but still cheap method of storing screws.i carry all those cups of screws in a tripple'd thick plastic bags -full of holes. anytime bag tips, screws fall out and mix up. i keep drill bits in the kitty purse!i mostly use six types of screws so if i could get six decent containers that dont need to be free, cheap would work.3.0 torx&star, 2.5torx&star, 2in starhead, used loose screws.i also have a small collection of other random screws that could use better storage than just plastic cups.i use these screws building shit outdoors away from toolbox. all the screw storage diy articles i found online are for garage storage. anyone have any nifty ideas?

What is the best material to reinforce stone graves with? I really need something to just plug all the cracks and holes in my mounds to stop niggers from touching them.
>>2444366>reinforceas in preventing markers from being toppled?or as in you've got markers that are cracked and need to be repaired lest ice damage completely split them?
does anyone know any uses for spoiled honey? note, this honey is not fully crystalized, it's contaminated and the is obviously sludgy at the top where the food particles stayed there for a long time. its raw honey and I know you can make leather care products but what else? nothing ingestible please.
I want these ugly wood warts out. Do I sand this Chinese piece of shit or what
>>2444483Hey sometimes a man needs a $10 table
>>2444557>bondoLook, he's not driving the thing around in sun and weather. Save a little money.
>>2444294Replace it with real piece of wood.
>>2444303this nigga been watching too much hgtv
>>2444295It's only trash if you buy their cheap budget-line stuff. I have an Ikea Galant bean-shaped frosted glass desk and it's built like a tank.
I've got a small table top fridge, it works and gets cold enough to form ice. If I carefully cut away all the sides and insulation leaving only the compressor and ice box, could I then just blow a fan over it and have a diy air conditioner?
>>2444259Yes you canNo it won't be effective and youre better off pulling an old one from the trash.It's way too fucking small and you'll have to do some fuckery to get the compressor outside the house otherwise there's no temperature improvement and you'll heat the house with the compressor.>>2444280You can do that as well but really all you want is the gas jets or wtfever it's called
>>2444556>you know how regular air conditioners list on the box what size room in square footage they can cool? well that little fridge was designed to cool whatever the square footage of that fridge is.True but just to be clear that little fridge was designed to cool whatever the square footage of that fridge is down to a *maximum* allowable temp of around 41°F, and even when adequately sized for the space they're installed in a window ACs lowest achievable temp is around 60° and most people like them run between 68°-72° or so.IOW asking a refrigerator to put out 70° air is significantly less demand than its designed for...nearly twice as warm as they regularly run at.So the size comparison thing isn't so cut and dried as it sounds when put the way you did. Making a fridge into an AC is *far* more feasible than the reverse.Also both ACs and refrigerators have thermal protection that can and will shut them down when they overheat, which can happen to both types of machines when the weather is hot and they are over worked.The OPs idea isn't a great one but it's not nearly as crazy and dire as you pretend; the principles are the same, thermostats can be swapped for different temps, and most importantly, nobody's refrigerator catches on fire when the door is left open even if you leave it that way for days.I'm not recommending doing it but acting like it's a practically guaranteed fire hazard is just as silly.
A 5000 BTU window unit at wally world is $150Then you'll have an AC and a mini fridge instead of an abomination that is bad at both
>>2444611Not him, I said you can with a lot of work.Need to realize a fridge compressor isn't really meant to run 24/7 either
>>2444613Yeah, but neither are cheap window ACs...put one in a room that's too big for it at the coldest setting and it won't last long and wont get the temp very low either when its hot outside no matter how long it runs.How much space youre cooling is the part of the equation that affects duty cycle, along with how well insulted the space is and how well you handle the exhaust.
Why don't engineers bite the bullet and use stainless for things like bridges? Buy once, cry once
>>2444434Possible, would require a degree of tensioning in the forms before concrete is cast and afterwards as well for a span to be supported by a small arch under extreme tensile pressure. Again, you are relying on the field guys to not fuck this up and is best done in a controlled setting
>>2444400Have you ever been to Spain, Italy or Greece?
>>2444378Poor anon. You think $250/year would fix the problem? Remember how shittt gov’t is. If you need $250 in funding from the gov’t to complete a project, they’re going to need to collect like $1500 in taxes. Then $1250 of that $1500 is wasted on absolute bullshit before the necessary $250 gets to work. And the resulting project will be shitty anyway.This is why people hate throwing their money away on taxes.
>>2444443multilane traffic, a bit of water, really whats the difference?
>>2444378its not the culture of how we build - it sall you bitches saying gov is trash i hate muh socialism dont tax the rich "le lowerst bidder"you guys stop progress, and you elect people that stop progress
I think I might have a problem.I love tools. I cant have enough of them.Recently lost some tools.>get rental car>it breaks down>gets towed>had to leave my stuff insideNow the rental company cant find the car anymore and my stuff is missing>lost $100 in toolsOnce I realized I lost the tools I had to replace them.Bought even more than I lost.
Cool story bro, tell it again.
>>2444208>it breaks down>the rental company cant find the carSue them
>>2444208I also enjoy tools
It's easy to buy cheap shit whereas at the moment I'm on a journey finding a) the absolute right tool for the job and b) the highest quality version of it that I can justify the costIt's for the toolkit I will keep in my car at all times so it has to be versatile and encompass all. It's a fun journey.
>>2444208the fuck, how does one lose a car? ask for compensation or sue their asses
assembled this contraption from various junk. Main piece is the antenna dish covered in aluminum tape. It actually works on a sunny day with minimal clouding from roughly 10 am to 2 pm. I looked at those solar cooking boxes, but they require way more time, like 3 hours atleast. Any good ideas how to improve upon this? Put the stand on the other side, so if doesn't throw a shade on the reflector dish. In pic rel I just tested a slice of toast, already fried an egg in a large black uncoated iron pan and boiled water in a metallic pot which took quite long, wife didn't let me paint the downside black. Had to dig trough some trash until I found an old pot.Concentrated sun beam on a small black container, what else could I improve?
the other three types are considered slow cookers. stoves and panels, dunno name of the other one. Wouod this be a good idea? Building a funel out of cardboard and laminate aluminum foil on it, then heat stuff from top? I'd think it could atleast boil some water and make soup?
Is there anything this can be besides black mold or am I fugged?
>>2444180>falling popcorn wall texture (see - asbestos)>black moldRIP in pieces anon, your lungs will look like a miners lungs in short order
>>2444180Yeah, dirt - especially if you have an air vent nearby.
scrub it, if it falls off its dirt
>>2444180whatever it is, spray it with hydrogen peroxideif it fizzles and sizzles, it was aliveif it just looks wet, it was dirtscrub away what's left with an old toothbrush

Would you rather be a bandsaw or a drill press?You will be used extensively by your hobbyist owner, choose wisely
>>2444232I give it a lot of respect, its safer than say a table saw, chainsaw or an angle grinder but you want to pay attention to where your fingers are
>>2444157Angle Grinder-chan would be the tsun tsun.
>>2444317Acetylene torch chan is a fiery tempered redhead
>>2444138Bandsaw for sure, gets way more maintenance. I beat the shit out of my drill press, poor girl.
>>2444138I'd rather be the drill (like real life), drilling, reaming, and breaking my tap.

>>2444696>heating things up because nothing uses it anymoreWhat, is it a shunt regulator?
>>2444700I don't really know, but that's what they say. Things get heated up because the 12v just idles there
>>2444721Holy shit it is a shunt regulator. Though it's the zener, not the 2SSD1856 BJT, getting hot. Also that's an awful font due to how ambiguous the 1 is.Personally I'd just swap that 1kΩ resistor for a larger one, which I don't think will impact any other part of the PSU.
>>2444724like larger voltage or resistance?
I'm moving into my dorm next weekend. Since I won't be having any roommates or suitemates, I wanna turn my bathroom into a sauna. How can I do that without maintenance trying to evict me
>>2444008what else to sauna other than pouring water on hot things to create steam?
>>2444099Checked. But in Scandinavian culture, a sauna also requires the presence of at least five sweaty, grunting nude men. OP needs to put a sign on his door, "Monkeypox Vaccines Available Inside."
>>2444008Just get a hot plate and some nice rounded rocks. Throw a red hot rock in the shower and a ladel of water. Unscrew the fan switched hot wire, towel under door. Voila
>>2444061This but OP doesn't care about school like most kids and being silly is FUN. Whee!
>>2444061God damn man you are so right and basedOp needs to get slapped into adulthood
