    How to Restore an Old Wheelbarrow

    "Balance" I mean most of the load should be ON A WHEEL, not on hands! Not sure, but this seems better balanced:https://keyassets.timeincuk.net/inspirewp/live/wp-content/uploads/sites/14/2017/07/Waldbeck-Colossus-Wheelbarrow.jpg

    I'm from the country where things made with quality. Wood is just for carrying 10kg watermelon. Anything heavier requires strong iron support. Or titanium. :)

    Wood racks to hold 30-50kg of load... wood... wood... I definitely studied something wrong about material strongness!This barrow worth only to make braai :) It's wrongly balanced, keeping all load on your hands.

  • How to Use TCRT5000 IR Sensor Module With Arduino UNO

    I played with sensor I bought on Ali and sometimes it works strange: I put box before sensor, sensor shows obstacle, then I remove box, but sensor still shows obstacle! And after I move sensor around (pointing at ceiling) it returns to "no obstacle" status. Not sure we can trust this sensor smth critical :)

    Convert Your IR Remote to RF Remote

    One more thing: even title of the article is wrong - you DO NOT convert any remote! You create additional way (RF) to control IR device.

    Now you explain clear what you made! Why you didn't put it in article?? :)Your project is not rocket science and "beginners" never appear on this resource - we all know about radio parts, voltage, etc. But for better understanding you should be short and exact, article has tooooo much details anybody can realize themselves. The main scheme you shown in "Step 6", while actually it had to be "Step 0" and be more accurate and detailed. THAT's why your words (before step 6) means nothing - you gave main part too late.Dude, don't take offense, I know this project is good and really worth to implement, but your way to express things is below the average. Look at article like you read it on one page during train trip - put only necessary, non-trivial things and on...

What people don't understand will be in comments and NEXT you can improve text, extending with only necessary explanations.Good luck!

    Convert Your IR Remote to RF Remote

    Sorry, but still not understand. You do so much blah-blah, but didn't say main thing: what exactly you wanna build?? Do you make IR remote to control RF device? Or you make RF remote to control IR device? In your case before drawing elec.scheme, better to draw normal diagram, what device what signal sends, where it received, to what converted and where the final signal go. Shift registers is the least interesting thing here.And since you use Arduino, I'm confused you talk about "only 16 buttons". You can join here rotary encoder, touch screen, even pedal! And all of that can send separate signal to control devices.

  • USB Volume Controller - Potentiometer Based

    > 10kΩ potentiometerSomething tells me it's the worst part you could use. First, it's cheapest cr@p you can buy from China - quality here is important, since you need proper position, not eventual jumps. Second, it has sliding parts (cheap, remember?), what mechanically means "just wait until it breaks soon".I think better could be to use rotary encoder, which also has rounding, but not sliding(!) part.And of course, I never repeat this project just because I have no 3D printer! (like most of us) Better if you give idea what can be used from garage rubbish. :)And since I did myself similar thing (but with sliding potentiometer), I soon found it boring. What about MOUSE with rotary encoder? :) I know it's already made by MS, but f*** 'em, greedy pandas hardly will sell...

    6 Easy Steps to Make Drawers

    For me (and sure for a whole "non-american world") it's hard to read all those clumsy 3" 1/2' etc. Centimeter is the best, handy measure for things of this size. 50cm x 40cm x 10cm box - easy! :)For me most strange part is "angled hole" - it's rare thing in my practice and not sure it keeps sides well. "Well" I mean they don't broke even when drawer did fall. Usually I put angle brackets + bolts: they require only small holes for bolts (read "preserve strongness of material") and they hold parts very well. And maybe it sounds unusual, I like when thing is REPAIRABLE (read "can be disassembled w/o explosion"). Say, you wanna change face panel for oak or wanna embed a safe to the back of drawer. Flexible join - easy improvement.And bo...

Flexible join - easy improvement.And bottom of drawer: you put nails into plywood from side, means your nails go directly between layers! Not the best join I know, huh... Nails can easy go out of holes + nails break layers of plywood. One of interesting joins is groove near bottom of sides, where you insert panel - it doesn't require even nails! But in this case you need more precise measure.Anyway, drawer is not the hardest thing to make - just attention to sizes.

    Walnut Bathroom Cabinet

    Everything looks more "arty", than "handy". And making one piece from 2 desk... unnecessary waste of resources, including hand flattering. My position is "simplify as much as you can", means MAKE something, but don't waste time on boring work - it can be automated.

    I received same dimmer, but it doesn't work. Above rotating potentiometer, it has one more variable resistor (blue box). I just guess it have to be adjusted to some Ohms, I tried all, but dimmer still produce full voltage. Guys, can you help please, what to do with it?

    For me it looks like another boring DC-DC, which can be found anywhere for $1. What's benefit of _your_ converter? It even doesn't work from wall socket! (read: "requires ONE MORE device AC-DC")Note: LM1086 can take up to 30V input, you confuse people with lower figures.Note 2: Even for RaspberryPI-3 it's recommended to have 3A DC. Don't know why, but it's official.
