Id like to base a cosplay off of a bird i really like, use the colors, patterns and form it has. Im having trouble deciding what genre of clothing to use for this endeavor. Be it Dressy, suit and tie, causal, punk, slutty, mythical, fairy like, im not sure which direction to go. Id like some ideas n opinions, i do intend to use feathers and possibly make a large cape-like set of wings but that depends what genre of fashion i use.

Template it out with cardboard first.
Trim until you get desired results.
Use that template to cut the MDF.

Get the right volume for the sub you're putting in. Adding poly-fill can help if you're on the smaller side.
Wood glue on all the joints.

>> No.1166344

-Get a piece of poster board or cardboard
-Rough cut it to get it in the ballpark
-Temporarly attach it to the side of the vehicle
-Measure up (vertical) from the surfaces (including the flat,easy part) an equal amount all along the contour about every inch or so. A small block of wood or something about the right size, is a lot quicker and more accurate than using a tape.
-cut out curve (and flat) and use it for a template to mark the wood.

Hello.
I want to make the mask from Zelda, Majoras Mask (Pic related) in wood. I don't have much experience with woodwork, but I don't think it will be a problem if I paint on the smaller details with a small brush.

I have a friend who works as a furniture carpenter, and she told me she could cut out the basic shape of the mask from a piece of wood for close to no cost at all. For this, she needs a proper drawing with measures she can use. After attempting something with GIMP, I realised it wouldn't work since my printer only prints A4 paper, and the mask needs at least A3. I settled on drawing it by hand. I got a compass tool and started with some basic shapes, but i can't seem to get the correct curves. Can anyone help me with this? It doesn't have to be exact, I can change the shape a bit by hand, but I need to have a correct basic shape, to get it as symmetrical as possible. Only a small tutorial on how to use the compass tool is necessary.

>> No.1166306

>> No.1166309

>>1166296
The drawing having measures has nothing to do with being on A3 paper, unless it needs to be 1:1 scale?
Open it with a vector graphics software like inkscape, add a new layer on top and trance over the important lines. If you can't measure it (pretty sure you can in like every vector graphics program ever because that's what they are for essentially) directly you can work out the dimensions from coordinates and angles. Then just scale each measurement by whatever factor to give you the size you want/need

The reason that cement now carries a 'manufactured on' dated and a 'use by' date is because of the Chromium (VI) Directive (2003/53/EC).

This Directive (Law) was issued in order to minimise the risk of allergic dermatitis from the use of cement.

The 2 month period is due to the use of additives in the cement to reduce the production of chromium (VI) when the cement is mixed with water. These additives become less effective with time and it is considered that after 2 months it cannot be ensured that the chromium (VI) levels would be beow 2 parts per million.

thats american standard isn't it?

If you are cheap, you can turn those o-ring type gaskets over to put a new mating surface against the seats in the faucet, but make sure you wipe out the inside of the faucet part, stray shit can keep it from sealing clean.
If you don't have faucet grease, you can use hand soap. Don't use other greases, they can eat that rubber shit.

This is a temporary solution if it does work.

You might be able to buy that o-ring type washer/gasket by itself if you look around, but it's not likely.


The only "safe" nigger-rigged solution is putting graphite packing on the washer, just enough to form a new surface.


above all, be careful not to over tighten and fuck it up worse.

As an architecture student, my wet dream is to own a laser cutter. Making models with parts cut by a laser is so enjoyable, fast, cheap in terms of materials, and fail proof. But 1K€ even for small, kickstarted projects, this I can't afford.

I still want one, so I spent the last few months wandering on the internet trying to gather as much informations I could off youtube, forums, reddit threads, etc. First thing I did was asking myself "what do u wanna cut bro?", and I answered "Dude, cardboards n shit" I think i now have a pretty clear understanding of how to build and operate a chassis with 2 axis. I already own (and learned the basics of) an arduino, on which I plan to mount an A4988, driving two NEMA 17 Steppers (57 oz/in). I have a lot of ideas for the design itself. But I got the feeling I need to get to the core of the problem first: how hard is it to make a laser cutter?

I have read somewhere that Laser Diodes, even properly focused will not cut anything more than thin paper, and are more suited for engraving. I read pretty much everywhere that CO2 laser tubes are the best options if you plan to cut something stronger.

But everytime I look at a CNC CO2 laser machines, I get terrible headaches. Considering we use a laser housed in a glasse tube with a CO2 tank and a vacuum pump, that shoots a deadly laser on 3 (at least) successives gold plated (for examples) mirrors, and then needs to be aligned to somewhat end up in a small lens to get focused, I see so many things that can end up going really bad if not fully mastered.

But I see a lot of DIY CNC machines that use those tubes without problems. Maybe i'm too anxious? Idk.

Bro you can get prefabricated tubes that have mirrors aligned (or alignable on the fixture) and shit.
In fact the CO2 laser tube is the easy part. Having the means to focus it properly (you can't see CO2 lasers), and having to power it are more challenging

So unrelated question. I picked up a shitty 3 wheel used bandsaw a while ago and have been struggling with getting the blade to track properly. took it apart, took the wheels off, took the table off and cleaned everything. Reapplied grease to the bushings of the wheels (yes, bushings, not bearings).
figured out that bushings are too worn, cleaning out the grime and putting in new grease removed what was keeping the bushing barely tight enough, now blade falls off the drive wheel even if I track it all the way back on the top. It's a Central Machinery (harbor freight) 12" 3 wheel, the green one.
I'm debating whether to salvage it for the motor and speed controller etc., whether to see if I can find brass bushings in the right size (as far as I can tell it's 13.5mm or 17/32" shafts), or get bearings in a close size and shim to fit.
Also whether I should even try to drill/press out and mount new bushings/bearings on the plastic wheels, or if I should just make plywood wheels a la mattias.

>> No.1166883

>>1166842
Three wheel bandsaws generally suck. Harbor Freight tools generally suck. I would salvage what you (motor, guides, etc) can and make a new 2 wheel band saw from scratch.

Or see if a decent one turns up on CL in your price range. I got an old Craftsman 2 wheel band saw from the 50's for $30 when I was starting out. It is only a 10 inch (IE super tiny) but it cuts well.

>> No.1166911

Honestly, I just did the same last weekend. well, somewhere between 80's and 2000's I'd guess. also a 10 inch, which is kind of nice in retrospect, because I'm coming off a shoulder injury and there's no way I would have been able to move the 14 inch that I was too late to buy at the same estate sale.
Was more like $80 though. Nothing in my area in my budget unless I'm willing to drive 2 hrs or settle for another 3 wheeler. Or an old B&D "drill powered" 7" bandsaw, although there's one of those listed with a motor permanently attached.
On the plus side it came with a half dozen extra blades. On the minus side apparently those were blades for the 14" because they're too big lol.
It just would have been nice to fix it enough to resell, and/or have one that was easy to move.

Motor is way underpowered for a big size 2 wheel... actually scratch that. It's a 3/4hp per the manual. I guess they got a great deal and it was cheaper to use a bigger motor to power through bushing friction than to use bearings.
Well, or it lies.
Any tips on affordable blades? 70.5" is apparently an unusual size :/

I have never seen a Harbor Freight motor that was anywhere near its rated horsepower. A friend of my has an old shop vac from that that claims to have a 5 horsepower motor and yet only pulls 8 amps on 110 volts. I guess they forgot the decimal or something.

Can anyone explain how it is possible to cram 8 pci-e lanes in x4 slot like in pic related ?
I just want to use active SM riser from this motherboard with regular motherboard (and x1 connector is actually power connector and its pinout is documenter) so to get two x8 pci-e slots off my x4 (or x8, whatever) slot on the motherboard. The riser's edge connector seems to be same as regular x4, so how this trick done ?

Shit at least give us a number, how heavy is the blind? No info, no advice, we are not your google assistant

Using a luggage weight from top center of blind extended , read about 2kg but with consideration of anything above the weight I'd say about 2.3kg needs to be lifted.

>> No.1166103

>>1166099
So try typing into google literally "what motor torque will lift 3 kg" and post results

Thanks for this, according to some calculations I'm looking for a motor with a rated torque of around 500-600mNm. This isn't far-fetched to you?

What trades do you think will be most demanded for the next 15 - 20 years? Do you expect any particular new one to pop out in the near future?

Welding has been memed into oblivion. Every dumbass cut-up straight out of high school, wants to be a welder now.

Being a lineman is pretty cash, so long as you can deal with union work (and union non-work i.e. layoffs). T. Step-brother has been a lineman for 10 years, has more money than he knows what to do with, and a smoking hot wife.

Lineman work has some costs to remember. That big storm in the next state over or the bad hurricane means you might be packing yourself up and hauling ass down there to work 20 hours a day and sleep in a tent or shed with six other filthy linemen. The payoff is the triple-double-emergency-rate pay you will be getting.

This isn't a trade in the traditional sense, but I've found there to be a severe lack of people who can handle decent commercial art works.

I'm talking graphic design, but also tech. There's a huge gap right now between "art" designers and "tech" designers, and if you can find a way to fill that space, you'll be in work for a long time.

For example, I recently finished a large contract doing 3D projection mapping for a high end car manufacturer. That kind of thing hadn't been done a ton before, and the client was having a hell of a time finding somebody to do it.

If you were just a graphic designer, you couldn't handle the tech side of that, and if you were just a tech guy, you couldn't handle the art side of it.

I don't really know what to call this position, but I think there will be quite a bit of it going forward for people who are actually good at it.
