  • Automatic Chicken Coop Door - No Programming Needed!

    another way to do it is to use a solar activated water timer to drop water from a source into a bucket to hoist a door up. if short on water, change buckets.connect to a solar powered water pump to keep a counterweight down, then when the sun goes down, the door closes again. you could use the same idea instead of the timer.

  • Wound Closing With Tape and Cable Ties  (DIY Zipstitch)

    I am not sure why you would need to use them here but just letting you know that you can buy reusable and readjustable cable ties. I suppose if you tighten too much you might be able to loosen a bit, or if you just like the sight of blood.

    Honda GX25, Part 3: Rebuilding

    hi, thanks for all that... I worked on the carby today... never knew it had a high setting. I had fuel spewing out in liquid for out through the air intake after using a new carby without setting it. had this UMK425 for 15 years and only now, after setting, does it start first pull .you might like to point out that the high setting is the left last photo with the blade screwdriver onto it, in the horizontal position centre to the lever that moves for throttle.the low or idle setting is (I think) that screw in the other photo on bottom right that is approached from the fuel intake side (right side) and it impacts onto the throttle . labelling the photos would help.a photo explaining where the inlet and pressure outlet for the fuel would be useful too. hard (impossible) to find on a web ...

    DIY Camera RIG

    another trick (which I havent used myself) but might also help WITH this rig is to tie a length of elastic strip to the camera, then to your belt. make sure to buckle up.

    Spring Water Collection System

    I am hoping for a Beverley Hillbillies moment, but with water not oil. I am thinking if I have to use something like gravel, then permalite might do, as I have to get it 200m and 100+m elevation up the hill, by foot.OR get the flying fox (zip line) thing the banana workers used to use here, which I might do an instructable on. water down, goodies up. water down leaks, with a counterweight on the up, so it comes back up when leaked out. then need auto way to catch the next goodies to come back up.... getting off topic though.
