Hello, /diy/,

It's autumn and my family downed some wood in our garden. Many harvested branches fell, so the trees could conserve their juices during the winter.
At this point, i'd like to express gratitude to the cherry tree for delivery of cherries for over 20 years, that unfortunately fell victim for termites that made her core rot and wither away.

Now, /diy/, i have a lot of cherry wood in my garden, sawn in 40inch pieces (that hasn't fallen to the termites), as well as some thick branches of apple, plum and pear, that might perhaps do some decent blanks for pistol grips or knife handles.

I also have a band saw with 2,7 inch clearance, a electrical chain saw, big hand saws, random chisels and a industrial vacuum.

How would you get the most wood planks with this selection of tools? Is that wood of any worth, anyway?

>> No.1483448

It's worth using what you can, for sentimental reasons.

I have a small creek in my back yard, and I would like to use a small pump and a solar panel to get the water up on a small hill.
It seems easy, but i don't have any experience in this field.
> What should i look out for when picking a panel? so far I found one with the following specs:
- tension : 18,2V
- current : 2,75A
> Do i need a regulator?
> Can the 12v pump get the water up that hill?

>> No.1483447


>> No.1483450

not much experience either, but if the pump starts sucking air it’ll probably burn out, so you’ll need some kind of a cut off switch. And if you’re just gonna be out there with it while its running just bring a generator.

Is gluing them to a board like in the picture my best option? I dont have easy access to a woodshop but can get to one if necessary. Thanks!

Turns out he saw something about a solar pulse on the news once and once the breaker flipped he literally tried every electrical device in the house to see if they were broken before he called maintenance to complain.

I work for a railroad and my route has me staring I to morning and evening sun often. Recommend welding sunglasses or shade number, that will protect against sun and glare, but still allow me to see the tracks and signals?

Something like a shade 3 or 5 Brazing/cutting glass?

>> No.1483371

Why not polarized sunglasses with a visor? Glare is mostly vertically polarized, so filtering it out specifically is more effective for seeing than blocking out light indiscriminately like a welding shade would.

Not only that but blue/UV-blockers (non chink type) and polarization not only helps acuity but also cuts the stuff that damages your eyeballs.

I've got this problem that this sewage hole on the right is clogged, and the bath is being drained through that hole. The bath itself is draining quickly enough, but that sewage hole is draining at the speed of like 1 liter per minute, so while I am having a quick shower, water comes up through that sink.
I know I need to unclog that hole, but it seems I can't open it. I tried twisting it in both sides, lifting it, but it seems just stuck there (keep in mind I did not apply big force while trying that, because I don't want my fingers cut by it)

I want to make a giant ass cage for my parrot.
But I don't have an idea how to work with wires/mesh.
I can build a wooden frame without problem, I have build couple closets and sheds, so I'm confident with this.
Mesh is a problem. First - I don't know which material should I use, since ordinary chicken wire is zinc-coated, and people say it is extremely bad for birbs. But I think I can use aluminium mesh. Second - I don't know how to fix it to frame, so it doesn't move...

Are you spending enough quality time with your bird? They go mentally insane rather quickly when left alone. Being bonded is so hard wired for their survival, putting them in a big pen is not a substitute.

>> No.1483266

>Are you spending enough quality time with your bird?
Yes, I spend a lot of time with him. I put him in cage only when I'm not home (usually for 6-10 hours), but considering I wake up relatively early it is not an issue.
>They go mentally insane rather quickly when left alone.
Dunno, I had to left him alone for 3 days, and he was absolutely fine with that (at least looked fine). But I was quite nervous and worried about that.
>Being bonded is so hard wired for their survival, putting them in a big pen is not a substitute.
I know, but his current cage is kinda small.
