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.

Buy a DJI if what you actually want is to take good photos/videos, go DIY if what you actually want is a fun project.

Under 200 USD: Creality Ender 3
Under 500 USD: Creality CR-10
Under 1000 USD: Prusa i3 (Mk2 or Mk3)
Over 1000 USD: Lulzbot or Ultimaker
Buyer beware: some chinkshit clones are garbage. Some can be genuinely good, though.
Instead of buying a new printer, you could consider building your own: https://reprap.org/wiki/

0. Electrics ≠ electronics. Appliances/mains/sparky stuff to /qtddtot/ or /sqt/. PC assembly >>>/g/
1. Search web first. Re-read all documentation/data-sheets related to your components/circuits. THEN ask. Show your work.
2. Pics > 1000 words. Post relevant schematic/picture/sketch with all part numbers/values/etc when asking for help. Focus/lighting counts.
2.5. State your skill level if asking an open-ended question.
3. Read posts fully. Solve more problems than you create.
4. /ohm/ is an anonymous, non-smoking general.
>I'm new to electronics. Where to get started?
It is an art/science of applying principles to requirements.
Find problem, learn principles, design and verify solution, build, test, post results, repeat
>Principles (by increasing skill level):
Mims III, Getting Started in Electronics
Platt, Make: Electronics
Geier, How to Diagnose & Fix Everything Electronic
Kybett & Boysen, All New Electronics Self-Teaching Guide
Scherz & Monk, Practical Electronics for Inventors
Horowitz and Hill, The Art of Electronics
iCircuit for Macs
KiCAD (PCB layout software, v5+ recommended)
Mouser, Digi-Key, Arrow, Newark, LCSC (global)
RS Components (Europe)
eBay/AliExpress sellers, especially good for component assortments/sample kits (caveat emptor)
Local independent electronics distributors

My intention is to use Tordon and reduce his idiot tree-line to a barren desert. I have been learning that I can use a "hack & squirt" method by creating a small cut to the bark and applying Tordon, a latter-day Agent Orange.
But it has to be quiet, so no hacking. I would like to know what is best knife to quietly score some trees.
I assume a simple hunting knife should be enough. But I thought I would consult the wisdom of the internet first.";

String comment = "I saw some pleb on here recommend the xiamoi air filter as a sort of diy solution, since you can just use the filter cartridge with some sort of fan and not pay for the housing, or something like that. I googled around and found reviews showing the Xiamoi did a terrible job cleaning the air.
The people at Smart-Air seem to have shown that a hepa filter strapped to a fan can perform massively better. If you believe their data, yada yada. Anyway I took some cues from their design and made this monstrosity. Not a real HEPA but it was cheap and was the highest filtration level in the store. Seems to be helping a lot with air quality. Ever since I got a cat my asthma has been fucked. This helped.
Post diy air cleaners and related stuff pls";
