What kind of adhesive would be good to bond small parts together securely without making a mess or damaging the piece?

These are small Japanese plastic figurines that were apparently meant to be assembled without glue, but they don't stay together well at all.

Thanks. I'll look into those
Our Lord and Saviour JB Weld is the answer my dear friend. It's a two component metal paste that becomes strong as fuck after 6h and is fully dry after 12h.
I've used quite a lot of epoxies in my time. If I were doing this purely for strength of bond I'd probably have to use West System 610. I use JB Weld more for quick-and-dirty fixes like making a clay sculpture armature.

The really big issue is getting the amount of adhesive to be used so small that it doesn't smear over the figurine. It needs to just bond the pieces together without being visible at all.

I haven't had a chance to get acetone nail polish yet but I will go looking soon.
I couldn't find nail polish with acetone but I did have plain pure acetone so I swabbed a hole in one of the figurine pieces with it. It melted the ABS easily, which I'd good, but I couldn't make it stick better than with just friction.

I might just try doing a better job of connecting the pieces like they're supposed to be.
anon... I don't know what glue you can use, maybe the same glue used for wh40k miniature, but acetone it's really a bad idea to use on plastic, like you said it will melt it and you don't really know how it can go deep into your figurine

i bought pic related from HF, and its a big piece of shit. all the hardware is shit, i used my own bolts, and it came with 2 flat tires. i do not feel like taking it apart and returning it.
looked online, and what mendards/home depot sells and its the same cheap looking shit with the same cheap wheels. even the radio flyer brand is awful. poor reviews, lots of flat tires, bad constructions.
is there a good cart out there? i have a dohn deere with a trailer cart, and a nice wheel barrow. need something small for moving firewood, and hauling away small amounts of dirt.
at this point i dont see anything good unless its over $300.
so what can I do to improve thing thing? i already used my nice JIS bolts to put this thing together.
im going to need to replace all these shitty wheels. anything you can recommend?
the wooden fence thing around it already broke. im gonna replace them with sturdier frame lumber.
fuck it, i took it apart, and will be returning it. i found a blain farm fleet store right next to a hf.
this cart any better?
Yes, I was going to recommend it but you recommended it to yourself.

Should spend the extra on the one with fold down sides.
thanks. i dont need the metal side one. if things get that serious i'll bust put my trailer. rather have a formed bowl.

don't know if you have this type of cart in the US.
those are popular in Germany.

although most Germans use these to roam the streets with their buddies and a few crates of beer on may first.
but those can withstand a huge amount of abuse.

op here, bought the gorilla cart. shit is cash. actually came with 8.8 grade bolts. much better quality.
they had the other larger carts on display, they looked beefy too.
yes, we have those here too, they are called Radio Flyer. Mostly for kids, and can double up for yardwork. unfortunately no longer american made. I bought one initially cause it had a formed metal body.

voltage common collector (+V)
Analog VCC and analog VSS. Basically power rails with additional decoupling/isolation from the ones used by digital chips.

See Analog Dialogue 46-06, which discusses the similar principles in analog grounding in some detail.
The "CC" in "VCC" just means "collectors". DD=Drains, EE=Emitters, SS=Sources. If you had a circuit design that needed it, you could also have VBB or VGG for Bases or Gates, respectively.

The reason it's VCC, VDD, VEE, VSS is the same reason that "page" is "p." while "pages" is "pp." (and why "section" is "§" and "sections" is "§§").
Well that makes more sense. Thanks for the lesson.

You can buy a toilet flange that connects to the inside of 4" pipe or the outside of 3" pipe. Seems like it would fit the bill ?
Could be felt. If that's a commercial item they probably burn the holes out with a laser. You could get some pretty clean lines with a very sharp knife or punch.

As far as I'm aware, most places won't allow this, but my question is this: are there any that will? I have a 30k budget total. I was thinking of buying some cheap land and plopping one of these bad boys down, putting in some insulation, reinforcing the frame, and of course, putting it on a foundation.

10 gallons of vinegar is significantly more useful that 200lb or rotten pears
As long as you don't open ferment it there's next to no risk of it turning into vinegar
im trying to ferment apple cider for the first time and im retarded
why is there all this fancy shit people do? can't I just pour a glass out of a gallon of cider, pour some yeast and sugar into the gallon, and then in 2 weeks have hard cider? maybe do some jank straw thing with the lid for getting rid of excess CO2, I swear I've heard stories of teenagers making this shit in the woods why would i spend $100 on glass fermenter bottles, pressure guages, bottles to bottle the stuff in afterwards, etc.
because thats not how it works and you'll end up with a yeasty trubby mess, not cider

theres a reason people use proper tools
The simplest way to make cider is to buy a 1 gallon glass jug of pasteurized apple juice, add preferably cider yeast, and put an airlock on top. After a day it should start bubbling. Once it stops bubbling you should have a 5-6% dry cider. It's very simple. After that you can bottle it in those flip top bottles and refrigerate immediately. You can also carefully pour or siphon the cider leaving the dead yeast or trub layer into a second sanitized 1 gallon container. Leave for a month or until it clarifies. Then you can put it into fliptop bottles or if you want put into beer bottles. If you want to carbonate it you will need to use a priming sugar calculator. Boil a small amount of water with the sugar and pour into cider gently stir and bottle in sanitized beer bottles. Starsan is the best sanitizer to use and a bottle will go a long way.

There's small things you can do like oxygenating the unfermented cider before adding yeast to improve the fermentation, but it isn't necessary.

Your dish should have a compatible connector. Give it a shot. Idk your location, but if you have an old dish, that may actually be as successful as the wire antenna.

So it would work? I might try that out first things first. I think I can connect a wire from the coaxial side of the satellite and connect it to the radio.
Yea. It'll either work better or it'll work worse. You can't hurt your radio ;)
If you have spare rg6 coax, I bet you could make a nice Mobius loop antenna.
No. Satellite dishes are for UHF, which that radio doesn't even cover.

Dewalt usually has a deal they run around holidays where you can get a normal homeowner level chucked drill motor and a homeowner level impact driver for 99$ with a battery and a charger.
I’m with this, wait for Nov 1 and Home Depot will drop all the holiday sales. DeWalt is definitely good for the old man who likes to do jobs around the house, better than he needs for weekend jobs so he should be happy.

Also most power tool brands will sell you a USB adapter for like $25, and you can even get 120V adapters from some brands.

That's part of it comrade, now get my pronouns right, or its to the gulags with you!

I have a shed about 20-30 feet from my house that I want to run 120 to. I was planning on digging a little trench to bury the wire through a tube. My question is how should the ends of the tube be mounted into the shed? Should they come up through the bottom, or should they come in through the side? Also, is it even necessary to have a tube or should I just use underground wire? or both?

Direct bury some Romex. What's the worst that could happen, you electrocute someone? Who cares, they shouldn't have been digging in your yard anyway.
Put it on it's own circuit in your main box in the house so that it has it's own breaker and run a big enough wire to support that breaker. Hell I'd even recommend running 50amp 220v to the shed and then have a small sub panel in the shed itself so you can break it out for any future circuits you may want. Digging the trench is the hard part, might as well do it right and you'll have all the power you could ever need there for future upgrades. Underground in a pvc conduit is best and come up out of the ground and into the side of the shed with a LB (pretty sure that's what they're called... It's like a tight 90 degree elbow with a plate you can remove from the back side to help get your wires around the corner.)
You could wire an inlet box on the shed wall. They come in household, and 30 amp and other sizes.
You can then power the shed from an extension cord, or generator (or solar inverter).
every year after Christmas alot of cords go on clearance at Target/Walmart. perfectly good electric wire meant to connect your lights outside, to a plug inside. you can buy reels of them for $1.75 its great
this is what i do. my shed is on a huge concrete sideyard so this was the easiest way for me

Electricians of /diy, can i have some help please?

i have 2 way too big 1980's speaker cabinets that do not belong in a car. i wanna put them in my car. specs of the cabinets unknown, but the amp that comes with it is 150W, 2 output jacks min. load 4 Ohms paralleled. but it runs on 220V AC, car is 12V DC obviously

what amp do i buy? will alternator melt? can i find out the amperage to see if i need t bypass the fuses?
the speakers seem to have an impendance of 8Ohm each.

Find an amp, that can provide at least 150W RMS power on each channel.
This should be more than enough power for the speakers.

They won't do so in a hurry since the boat is in no one's way. It can sit for years until the project is abandoned (Doug is not just insane, he's old). They have plenty of space and wisely had the boat parked out of the way.

Storage doesn't cost them a dime and they get a ringside seat for the clown show.

There is no defined starting point, grab a book and start reading or buy an arduino off ebay/amazon and start messing around. There are a plethora of examples online to get started.

this thing should work standalone right? after it's programmed if i only hook up 3v3 and GND it should run fine with no other external components needed?
i looked at the esp32 dev board and it only seems to have linear regulator, some leds, and usb interface chip so none of them seem to be actually needed for it to work
what's the best way to power these using an external battery?
ends up being $30 shipping here because of the catagory it falls under, i wish they'd mark them as gift

I think you're more or less correct in some sense. Obviously, a lot of the basic functionality of the device depends on being able to manipulate some of the pins, see pic related, page 5 of the datasheet.
But you don't really need any specific external components, no.

It has an active-high enable pin on pin 3. You need a pull up resistor to 3.3v in order to get it to run. People often include a switch that pulls this to ground so that you can reset it.
