Don't worry, you'll have a blast, but be aware that "party aspect" you are envisioning may not materialize. WAITWAITWAIT...

Just to throw in my two cents: if the bike frame is aluminum, I would say TIG is the way to go. But TIG is expensive and hard to learn, so unless you want to take it somewhere, I'd forget about it. Steel frames could be welded with stick or mig. I agree with, uh, whoever it was that said to use a 1/...

This is how I think of things (and please, correct me if I'm wrong), but let's say you have a 12v, 24v, and 36v battery of the same size. Wouldn't the 24v last half as long as the 12v, and the 12v three times as long as the 36v? It would seem that with batteries it boils down to trading life for jui...

I used to cut myself all the time on Xacto knives when I was building rockets wholesale. For DIY sutures, I would keep a bottle of isopropyl and a designated bottle (designated but still not sterile) of quick-drying cyanoacrylate (superglue) in my workshop. It's essentially the same thing they would...

As far as shelter and shade goes for me, I'm still fooling with ideas. A quonset seems reasonable, but so does a carport. It really will come down to a matter of cost. Have you priced tarps lately? A 30 x 50 is close to $100. Figure in struts and rebar, I can see the cheapest quonset costing around ...

Quonset shelters?

I'm tinkering with the idea of building a simple quonset-style structure out of maybe PVC or EMT conduit and tarps. It would be my shelter for the week. Has anybody tried this? Any plans, suggestions, pointers, places on the web? A step-by-step would be nice, but I think I can figure it out with a n...
