What have you guys been working on?
I've been prepping my yard for the spring. Cut back everything, got rid of the leaves and cleaned up the beds. Next I'm cutting back the two crepe myrtles in the back. Got one thinned and trimmed today, hitting the other one tomorrow then going for the tops

Killing moles, cutting 6 inch diameter poison ivy vines with a chainsaw, building birdhouses and mulching.

I had the electric service dump 20 cubic meters of wood chips, I'm expecting another load tomorrow. I put 40lbs of fertilizer on it and it was melting the snow from last week. It steams when I turn it. Every day I get 30 to 100lbs of coffee grounds from Starbucks to add to the pile.

We cleared all the bushes and smaller hardwoods, built a fence, and planted 20 evergreens since new year. I'll rent a truck or trailer in March and buy 50 to a hundred shrubs and trees. My wife also wants 4 raised beds.

I've been spreading the wood chips across the yard in low spots and will till it all with my cultivator in April and plant grass.

Sup /diy/,

Anyone familiar with the Amprobe 6030 wire tracer? Would this be suitable for 450VAC general wire tracing on a military ship?

I've spent many days hand-over-handing cables and dealing with shitty diagrams. I think this could be a great time saver.

>> No.2008882

>Amprobe 6030 wire tracer
it will work fine, they make tracers you can hook strait up to the wire while HOT.

this kind of tracer doesn't get a lot of range as compared to a direct connection de-energized. that is the signal bleeds.

the claw clamps around the wire and creates a signal by magnetism.

you can also trace with a multi-meter but it is a little more manual and requires some mental mapping.

>> No.2008901


thanks m8. yeah the usual method is hooking one end to ground and testing for continuity. but thats limited in practice.

This model has a direct hookup with hot/cold wires. the signal clamp is an additional option.

So I am attempting to remake the Venom cannister from the Venom, but I need advice on what materials to use to make sure the finish product lasts.

I have a reference picture from the PumaXBait crossover where they have the collectors edition shoes in a similar cannister.

Look closer
Cutting teeth have a clearance angle and rake angle.
They may cut on the backstroke, but with inefficient geometry.

>> No.2008688

>most commonly used saws are double action
Double action saws are far from common and are largely extinct. Buck saw blades are the only remotely common saw which cuts on both push and pull. In almost all saws the return stroke is used for clearing dust and you need tall teeth with rakers for anything approaching decent performance if the saw cuts on both strokes. Buck saws and other green wood saws can get away with tall and very aggressive teeth since quality of cut does not matter, so they can sacrifice every second or third tooth as a raker and the softness of green wood means those tall aggressive teeth will still have decent life.

You do occasionally see them in cheap saws and they are occasionally attempted to be brought back so manufacturer can exploit the marketing gimmick of "cuts on both strokes so twice as efficient!" but that is only true on very narrow stock since they can not clear the dust and the saw stops cutting and possibly binds on anything much thicker than your thumb.

Rough cut cross cut saws of the european tradition are the one exception, they often use equilateral teeth which do cut on both the push and the pull, but they are not common saws since they leave a very rough cut and tear out badly. These are meant for rough cutting very rough sawn but dried wood to length before surfacing, so the tear out is not an issue. Not many people have use for such saws anymore and wood rough enough to make them useful is not common, even right from the mill since modern mills give a pretty damn good cut.

>> No.2008693

Will add before some pedantic 4chan autist tries to prove me wrong with examples of saws which cut on both strokes. Yes, there are some specialty saws which do cut both ways, but these are purpose design saws and not common, most people have little use for something like a veneer saw.

My cat died a few days ago. He's buried now but he was such a good cat that I want to make a decent tombstone for him. I have carved things into stones before with a hammer and nail but that takes forever and the nail gets blunt and digs into my fingers. This time I'd like to get the proper tools for it and use a 100lbs sandstone slab from a creek somewhere. I don't want to do epic calligraphic fonts or designs because it's sandstone, that will just erode in 50 years.

There is a way, you will need to pour some liquid silicone on a good undamaged area of the plastic and let it set. Peel it off and mix epoxy to pour into the damaged areas, then set the silicone on top and add light pressure, not too much where it causes the silicone to force epoxy out of the area, but just enough for it to remain flush and let the epoxy cure. Once that's done you have original texture.

I think it would be fun to build a hut/shed/workspace kind of building from these type of concrete lego blocks. Should be possible to leave gaps for the windows. Biggest question right now is how to make a roof? Preferrably with some kind of prefab components since I have no building experience at all.
Also, the blocks I found for sale locally are 80x80x160 cm and cost 80 eurodollars. That means I can stack 3 to get to a reasonable height of 2.4m. It would imply you can build, say, a (almost) 5m long and 2.4m high wall for 720 euros. Would you say that is a good price for a load-bearing wall of that size, or is this retardedly expensive?
Lastly, anyone ever seen these used for something other than open-air storage units for sand and shit?

This was made for /k/ but I hope its helping here at some points.
Added some Nano Dry Lube to machine oil, goal is reducing wear but I lubed all my locks and friction parts inside my house. 10/10, everything is smooth af and runs without noise. Price is 25$ for 25g and its more than I need for many years. Possible enouth to "improve" a few Liter machine oil, grease and gun oils.

How does it work? Polishing via Mendel Effect. This means high surface gets weared off while lower surface gets protected. This means normal wear for short time will reduce friction and than the wear rate will drop by 30-50%. Next reason is a Tribofilm. The Nanoparticles will stick to the metall parts and prevent contact, its just sliding over the oil. Thats why the fucking noise on my oven (friction lock) is gone. In other words
>no noise
>longer life time
>better to operate
>protects even when the oil is gone

Stay safe /diy/

BTW, yes it works like graphite. Its just fine AF and penetrated like penetrating oil and wont make a mess because invisible and stable up to 1200°C

Okay, temp 21c with humidity 40% gives you dewpoint of 7c. So when you walls are 7c water will condense on them. If your humidity is above 40 % you can lower it some and that will reduce the problem - with 30% humidity dewpoint is only 2.7c. Its not exactly healthy, but probably healthier than mold. In winter lowering humidity is really easy, you just increase ventilation.

I don't have an answer anon, but i have a simar question so I'm partially hijacking this thread.

I'm in the US, got into gardening last year and really enjoyed it. I grew a lot of standard varieties of fruits last year, so this year I want to branch out to varieties that don't suit themselves well to commercialization, but taste really good.

I do see the cotton candy grapes at stores sometimes, but something like that i might be interested in. I also did moonglow and bartlett pears, fuji and red delicious apples, belle of georgia and elberta peaches, and a nectarine I can't remember the name of.

Anyway, a lot of those are well known commercial varieties, which means they're made to ship and stay good in grocery stores. So I was hoping to get fruit suggestions on varieties that are more flavorful, but not good for shipping so you don't see them commercialy.
