Welcome to /diy/, a place to:

Post and discuss /diy/ projects, ask questions regarding /diy/ topics and exchange ideas and techniques.

Please keep in mind:
- This is a SFW board. No fleshlights or other sex toys.
- No weapons. That goes to /k/ - Weapons. The workmanship and techniques involved in creating objects which could be used as weapons or the portion of a weapons project that involves them (e.g., forging steel for a blade, machining for gunsmithing, what epoxy can I use to fix my bow) may be discussed in /diy/, but discussing weapon-specific techniques/designs or the actual use of weapons is disallowed. Things such as fixed blade knives or axes are considered tools, things such as swords, guns or explosives are considered weapons.
- No drugs or drug paraphernalia (See Global Rule 1). If you want to discuss something that could involve such things (e.g., carving a tobacco pipe from wood) that's fine, but make sure it's /diy/ related and doesn't involve drugs or it will result in deletion/ban.

Some friendly suggestions for posting:
- First ask Google, then ask /diy/. Your question will probably be better received if you do so.
- List available resources (tools, materials, budget, time, etc.)
- Try to use pictures and explain the goal, if possible
- Be patient, this is a slow board; your thread will be around for days.
- Share your results! /diy/ loves to see problems solved and projects completed!

UK here, live in a nice flat. Recent wave of burglaries appear to be entering from the rain water drain pipes to our central courtyard. Evidence include the grate being left off and trails of filth and debris. We must keep this drain open or the courtyard floods. Any tips on keeping criminal types out of these pipes?

/an/non here, do some gardening, in the long term, thorny rose bushes, in the short time, vines that requuire frame to grow on, you can get wire tomato cages with sharp edges, obviously be careful that you don't cut yourself. You can also have a rock garden with rocks that are too heavy to lift easier, it can look really nice, either Japanese style rock garden with some maples, or Arizona style with cacti, or mountain style with Campanula. Depending on how much sunlight you get, a lot herbs like thyme like growing out between jagged rocks.

I can confidently say that, at least as late as the early 2000s, military aircraft already used some SMDs.
I think some of the general aversion against SMDs comes from the higher rigidity of large chips (both SMD and BGA) being soldered onto boards, resulting in breaking joints if the board is under mechanical stress. This topic got a lot of publicity with the Xbox360 because of the recent switch from leaded to unleaded solder and the manufacturing techniques not being updated accordingly.

In military aircraft, however, leaded solder is still used because of its higher vibration resistance, so that shouldn't be an issue.

No way! DIP packages have never been used in any military equipment, and all military equipment (in all countries’ militaries) is all less than a month old—always brand new.
Nothing is stockpiled in the military either, we get things made by guys like you off etsy or fiver on a case-by-case, just-in-time basis.

I guess you are willfully ignoring the part of my post that said hundreds of people went through the cave. The point you’re missing here is that if you drive, you have surely noticed an uptick in aggression and unsafe driving. Or maybe you haven’t because you’re one of the assholes making it more dangerous. People are constantly on their phones and not paying attention. You’re free to look up the rising rates of auto deaths. However people like you treat as something blasé and don’t view it as inherently dangerous, yet it is. And everyone just accepts it because it’s a normal part of life. It doesn’t have to be. The infrastructure in the US and the drivers in general are shit. It dosent have to be this way anymore than people have to go caving.

Is caving more dangerous than driving? For the average person, yes. But it isn’t the automatic death sentence you retards think it is while you dont give a second thought to how dangerous things you do everyday are. Maybe you think you go through life without any unnecessary risk. But you do, faggot.

Escalators exist to make it easier for people who have trouble with stairs. Imagine an old man with a cane having to carefully get down the stairs without tripping because the escalator stops 3 steps short for whatever reason, when it could have just deposited the old man down safely at the bottom.

If that short flight of steps was just around the corner, it would still be silly, but you could kind of justify it by saying that it'd be really expensive to install a whole separate escalator installation for a flight of like three steps. But here, it's just plain ridiculous to have the escalator already there and in place and just have it be three steps short of the full run.
>>
>>2764816
>Escalators exist to make it easier for people who have trouble with stairs.

That is *not* the primary reason they exist or are installed; people who have trouble with stairs are at a distinct disadvantage when getting on and off escalators, which requires quick and decisive steps with adequate lifting of the feet to accomplish safely.

You just made that up; escalators are used because they allow people to rasily move between floors en masse without the need to wait for elevators that have limited load capacity. They can also still function as stairs in a pinch when shut down.

>Imagine an old man with a cane having to carefully get down the stairs without tripping because the escalator stops 3 steps short for whatever reason, when it could have just deposited the old man down safely at the bottom.

As has already been pointed out, this is *not* a down escalator so this entire hypothetical scenario is a red herring grasping at straws.

This arrangement isnt optimal but there's probably a reason for it that makes some sort of financial sense and is well worth the small inconvenience.

Just like stair stringers escalators are made to order and are not easily altered...there may have been a building redesign that happened after the unit was ordered that resulted in it being too short, or perhaps they were able to get one that was already built and unusable because some dumbass measured wrong, and they got it at a deep discount that covered the cost of adding a landing and stairs.

so you're deviating from the stock keg setup to meet your needs, as i stated about kegs being great starting out but easily outgrown

>I'm not building out to achieve this
>>2764159

>downsides
obviously a conical, like a keg, is designed to be left in one place vs moved around all the time when full. what's more awkward, a conical on casters or keg with one/two handles? and be honest, how many active fermentations are you doing simultaneously? i guess that's a trick question since with 5 gallon kegs on a 6 gallon batch you'd split that across 2 kegs then transfer to 1 more keg, that's 3 kegs taking up more space than a conical. corny kegs shouldn't be stacked horizontally if not under pressure. are you serious a fermenting fridge/keezer, takes up less space? and if you're using one why would you not just cip? plenty do this, and would negate the jacketed bringing your price down significantly

>>2764645
i think you've confused hydrostatic pressure with osmotic stress, the latter is the main cause for autolysis. at 100 feet it's experiencing <50psi, brewers yeast can survive exponentially higher pressures with zero side effect

this is also you? >>2761622
>>
>>2764653
the main reason breweries use conicals is because they scale vertically and are easy to maintain. plenty do open fermentations, so if i bought an open fermentor that would be larping as well? what about a coolship? pro's use kegs so does that make you a larper? seems you just want to make yourself feel good by putting others down

-causes for autolysis on the homebrew scale are the same as commercial scale
-conicals sorr trub from good yeast for harvesting/repitching (very common to do a cone to cone transfer to reuse yeast)
-why would i want several freezers or fridges when i can flow coolant through the jacket for cheaper and less space. i swear if you're not the same dude i talked to earlier itt about this it's like you expect people to make endless additions on to their house for fridges and freezers
>>
>>2764696
Yeah, deviating with a $30 upgrade. And it’s just for a neater system, not a necessary upgrade.

I was only advocating for a serving and fermentation/cold crash fridge, the latter being optional. For awhile I stacked two mini fridges atop one another to achieve this. Took yo as much space as a normal fridge basically but I could run both at different temps. Cost $100 or so.

You can flow coolant through the keg too. Since I found that tri clamp lid I’m probably switching to that, since my ferm fridge was just gifted to someone. At that point a conical just really doesn’t offer anything unique to it, just marginally easier cleaning and dumping.
>>
>>2764696
And yeah I abondoned the idea of building a wall mounted keg inverter, I think a little stool is a better idea. Just to experiment and see first hand how I like yeast/trub dumping, nothing wrong with that.

Anyway, I’m over this. It seems like you want to take everything I saw and twist it into being bad faith. I’m just pointing out that, objectively speaking, there’s nothing a conical achieves that a keg can’t. Sometimes it may be a little more hassle, but imo it’s worth it vs the other advantages kegs have over conicals, and the downsides a conical brings.

I’m happy this conversation led me to find a tri clamp lid for my corneys though, pretty stoked to try out glycol chilling and see how I like trub/yeast dumping. The latter might make it a lot more viable to ferment and serve from the same vessel, which cuts down cleaning time of course and is yet another advantage to keg ferment over conical.

/diy/ing a business
I don’t want to come across as a schmuck, but I am a semi capable person with two businesses in reach of myself. One is a signage business, the other is a food business.
Both have great potential, I currently work in the sign industry and would like to make more money. Even if I leave my current role I have access to all the required equipment.
The latter, the food business, is something I have dreamt of for literally 10 years now. I have a product I am able to make, in the 4000~ items per month at current capacity with the equipment on hand, and growing to 100’s of thousands would be no scaling issue because it would require no more space and not much more equipment.

The food business could potentially be worth indefinitely more than the signage, despite my acquaintances in the space already regarding me as a competent craftsman and willing to provide me with endless work.
One is a path of linear progression, the other, food, is a path of exponential growth.
I do not care about the income. I have self doubts about trying to achieve anything on my own.
I genuinely enjoy this board, so what has it taken you to go out and try your own thing? I do and don’t know what I need to get started, which might not make sense, but in a practical standpoint I do know what it takes, but in the theoretical I have so much self doubt it hurts.
What do. I trust you anons to a far great extent
>>
>>2764313
My first thought would be to watch what you pay for these businesses. From what little I've seen, a majority of businesses that are for sale are merely jobs under another name and without the direct labor from the owner would fall apart. Businesses like these could be close to worthless and their pricing might be based on the owners ego more than anything else so factor in labor costs to ensure you still have a profit margin left.

Additionally, the lifeblood of any business is it's advertising so pay careful attention to how much the owner spends here since you will likely need to exceed it. A specific red flag here is if he spends too little, which could mean he relies on his personal network for sales, which could drift away with a new owner.

I'd also pay attention to any existing leases on buildings. Again, my feeling is that your pegged costs like rent, utilities, insurance, any licensing, etc. can make or break a business so don't try to sugar-coat those numbers. And if possible, you may want to favor any deal that includes the building in the purchase. That way even if the business fails you have some type of asset left. You don't want to pay a huge amount for what essentially is a piece of paper and a few old machines.

After that, you'll want to examine the last 12 months in reported revenue and maybe even get your accountant to go over it for any suspicious stuff.

I guess take this all with a grain of salt, too. I've tried to start quite a few businesses with little success but they say failure teaches more lessons anyway. I'd also maybe post up on some small business boards for more expert opinions. HTH
>>
>>2764313
I’m not a businessman but I visit a lot of food factories for work and have some stuff to consider.

Food businesses may be very regulated or not at all depending where you are and what food you make, which can be a huge limiting factor in terms of scaling. If you need to meet very stringent reasons like frozen food in Europe (they get salmonella a lot) you may be looking at $300k+ in regulations investments when you want to run or scale up a big line. In many countries employees can call in sick at any time with a minor cough or diarrrhea to prevent guy bacteria spreading. Different story if you produce eg potato chips in Guatemala which is pretty much regulation free afaik. US is a bit inbetween, fda stuff is pretty okay, except maybe for dairy products

So it’s definitely worth doing some research, rules may be on federal, state or even local level, if you export there may be additional, foreign rules too.

Based, thanks anons, a lot to think about now. Doing food seems like it would require too much investment before even making the first batch

>The food business could potentially be worth indefinitely more than the signage, despite my acquaintances in the space already regarding me as a competent craftsman and willing to provide me with endless work.

Ha, whether it was autocorrect replacing "infinitely" or a Freudian slip, "indefinitely" is really important here.

Of all the businesses where nothing is definite, food related businesses are at the top...some may be more stable than others but the success rate for startups is dismal, especially when you consider that literally everyone needs to eat.

Signage can be a great business but the reality of it is that the vast majority of the work that keeps sign shops busy and growing is in support of business operations of one sort or another and/or entities that are subsidized by tax dollars.

When the general business climate takes a hit, sign shops are the first to feel it both in overall demand and also when other companies begin to default on accounts...and sign materials and finished jobs aren't cheap or easy to re-sell.

As my old boss at the sign shop used to say, sign shops are like those remora fish that live by attaching themselves to big sharks and other hosts in a symbiotic relationship. If you see lots of remora thriving it means the big shark business is good, but if there's no hosts around to attach to, they are in trouble.

Add to that the fact that when things get lean, even though it's not a great strategy many businesses begin tightening their belts by cutting advertising, and signs are mostly advertising. Where I live businesses won't even replace signs obliterated by hurricanes since "everyone already knows where we are", lol

I want to get my home wifi signal out to my car which is parked a few floors down in the back lot of my apartment building. I have almost line of sight to my car via my bedroom window, so my plan is to beam wifi down to it with a directional antenna connected to a wifi repeater (wifi repeater to avoid stringing ethernet through my apartment). Pic related are a "Rockspace Upgraded AC2100 Repeater" and an "Alfa network APA-M25 Antenna", both purchased very cheaply as refurbs arriving tomorrow. The repeater does not have standard RP-SMA antennas I believe, so I'll open it up to solder on an antenna connector. Both devices claim to be dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), for the antenna does that mean that it transmits both 2.4GHz and 5GHz at the same time through the same single input connector? Or would that require two antennas, one per frequency? For the wifi repeater, is it likely going to have separate 2.4GHz and 5GHz antennas on the PCB? If so, could I connect both to the single antenna just by grouping them, or can I only connect one frequency to the antenna? Thanks, all help is appreciated.
>>
Try it with the existing omnidirectional antennas first, chances are you don't need to switch to a directional antenna for this. Distance is not as important as the number of wifi-blocking obstructions between the AP and client antennas. So site one of these units right up on the window overlooking as close to the car as you can get, and see how the signal looks from down at the car.

Is this for dashcam offload or similar?
>>
Yagi antenna
>>
>>2764698
Yeah I'll test just the repeater first - the only physical obstructions are a glass window and other cars, but I figure if I can beam wifi right at my car then the signal will bounce around the surrounding cars enough to make it. The purpose is partially to enable some features of my new dashcam system, but also just to have signal for when I'm out there working on my car.

>>2764701
Yagi's were the first type of directional antenna I found but the size of the readily available ones for 2.4ghz are such that it would likely have to be ceiling or tripod mounted to properly aim it out my window at the right angle. The one I mentioned in the OP can sit right up against my window and will not obstruct the blinds closing etc. I did also find "andrew mcneil" on youtube making his own Yagi panel antennas with good success (pic related), but the Alfa one was $10 so it's worth a try first before DIYing my own.
>>
>>2764683
You would be surprised how much difference a colander behind the antenna will make. Pushed 2km with an older Alfa wireless dongle before.
After that, you're right thinking yagi. Look online, others have figured out the size needed for the relevant wavelengths.

Just made a toy for my kid. It's a push along bird. Saw it on a farm, took a pic of it and copies the design.

What do you think about it? Share your wooden toys that you've made.

Neat. Good job.

Thanks for the kind words. She broke it already by falling on it and ripping the leather joint. Will have to use thicker leather.

The edges and surfaces were sanded.

Plywood. Just some scraps I found in the hardware store. Maybe I should use some hardwood for the wings to make them more acoustic.

You could easily modify this to a windup toy by drilling a hole in the axle and threading a piece of string through it.

Hi /diy/,
This drain assembly keeps leaking at the circled region.
Multiple things drain here:
The laundry sink
The washing machine
Kitchen sink
Dishwasher

Water is seeping out of the circled connection when the kitchen sink/dish washer is in use

How can I stop this leak? Can I add some glue to this seepage region? Or does all of this PVC piping need to be replaced?

This house was built in 74 if that matters.

It would be back peddling had I been called out on it. My guess is your dumbass>>2764477
believed and confirmed it

Thanks for the responses guys

So I think the course of action is:

1) try to unclog this portion of the drain. Need to determine how to do this. Either chemically or with a snake.

2) may be a way to topically seal the leak with glue of some sort

3) may have to cut out this section and put a rubber boot with hose clamps on each side to bridge this section and repair locally

4) cut out and replace all of this

Sorry so I wanted to ask, since it is the kitchen sink/dishwasher that drain through this pipe that is leaking, and that is in the main floor and this photo in op is in our basement under our laundry sink, then I guess I'll be trying to unclog from the kitchen sink?
Or could be I attempt to unclog from the laundry sink?

Also which is the best product to use for either chemical or snake type product?
