What do you figure the easiest way to remove a tattoo at home?

I tried using a tattoo gun to tattoo skin color pigment over it. That didn't work nearly at all, out 150$
I also tried burning a part off with a hot knife I left my torch on for about a minute or two and that left a pretty thick scar but it worked. That hurt even drunk though


Any other suggestions? What about TCA solution? Or an acid?


The tattoo on removing is all black. Not really concerned about pain just nerve damage or something I would have to go to the hospital for. Obviously...

19 KB,
I know I'm likely asking the impossible but can we have a multi-tool general thread w/o the bickering?

I'll start off by saying I know very little about tools but do want to learn more about them. One thing I do know is that multi-tools are NOT a replacement for dedicated tools but are meant to be used for less intensive jobs that may not require the dedicated tool.

On the lower-priced side I've seen multi-tools from Jeep, CRKT and other companies while Victorinox and Leatherman seem to make the tools most people regard as premium in both price and...

I personally have a leatherman new wave, although i am not a particular multitool guy. Bought this one because it was recommended as, and probably is, the best value for money quality general purpose multitool on the market.
I am however an advocate of quality tools, you pay maybe 4 times the price of a cheap tool, but it'll last you 4 times as long whilst giving you the extra advantages of quality tools such as a nice sharp blade that holds its edge etc.
I've had it now for maybe 5 years and use it for...

Leatherman; even a basic model will last forever properly used and cared for

you get what you pay for...that doesn't mean you have to go spend $80-$100, but don't go for the cheapest one and expect wonders

(have an older model from before they started making them with the thinner style....it only has a few things in it, but I like it that way....it's very slim and light while still feels heftier that new models like the sidekick)

What you said seems like good advice. It also seems like you both really like your Leatherman products.Disregarding prices do you know if other companies ( excluding Gerber and VIctorinox given they do ) make products that can compete?

I know CRKT has a few multi-tools that range from $20-$50 ( pic related; I find the odd shape of the tool interesting ( I didn't forget you said you get what you pay for and I'm only bringing up CRKT because they...

I live in a small house, about the size of a studio apartment, that I built myself.

It's really cozy but I'd like to make it slightly bigger by adding a second story.

The problem is that I can't move out while doing this and seeing as I will be doing it in my spare time it may take a few weeks.

So how do I do it without having to move out completely?

Can I just rip up enough of the roof to build my walls and new roof? Then finish the inside later?

Thanks for any comments, sarcastic or not.

this is typically how things are built anyway. you complete and weather tight the 'shell' then work on the interior.
>>
>>966854
Yea I get that but in order to add the second story the roof will have to come off. I can't do all of that in just a few days as I will be by myself so there will be a stretch of time that it is unlivable. I'm trying to avoid that.
Sorry I wasn't clear about that.

This is an outlet used to charge my electric car. When I bought the car, I replaced the 15A outlet with this 20A GFCI to hopefully resist the heat a little better. Now this one is starting to discolour.

Does anybody have a suggestion for an outlet that would hold up to the heat a little better. The charger only draws 12A max, but up to 11 hours in worst case scenario. The house is 2006.

it looks like it's discoloring because it's dirty and causing arcing
also changing the 15amp outlet to a 20amp one was fucking stupid assuming the line wasn't ran for that
>>
>>964936
It's not dirty. It's definitely discoloured from heat. The outlet is only 4 months old.

I don't have anything 20A to plug into it anyway, I just hoped it would handle the heat better. I've never actually seen anything with a 20A plug on it. Does anybody use that?

I can see black build up in both outlets.
In any case, run a new dedicated 20 amp line in your garage

No idea if it's good after that time, but for disposal contact your local council. Most municipalities have free for small volume chemical collection points, if they don't, check with a pharmacy and see if they have some protips.

It is normal that ether bottles smell slightly. The main hazards with ether are flammability (much more flammable than gasoline) and that it slowly forms explosive compounds when exposed to air (including air inside the bottle).
Nowadays its main use is as solvent. Too bad it evaporates very quickly. Apparently you can use it to start some old diesel engines in cold, too.

I don't really see why you would want to keep it.

So I've gone and ordered one of these (image related) to connect to my impact and drill box to keep all my bits organised.

So how many people have used these not this particular model but the series in general.

Are they worth the extra money sure they seem tough and well built but apart from keeping my bits with my tools I don't know if I can justify the other ones

you have to drill holes in the B60 to undo some plastic clips

They think mortar is like super glue


See the bricks on the top of the openings? Normally you'd use an U-shaped block, pass a rebar through them and pour concrete into them. This works, but as you can see the only thing holding the bricks in place is mortar.

I hope somebody here can help me. The belt in my washing machine fell off. It's 4 years old and I figured it was just stretched too much so I ordered a new one online and tried to put it on, flew off again.

Now I saw the real problem was the bearing wich contains the flywheel is sliding outward. I hammered it in and started a washing cycle but after a while it came out again.

I had grinded open the back to easily access the motor/flywheel connection but now I'm afraid that the back might have kept the bearing/flywheel in place.


Can I solve...

Look at those bulbs side by side. The LED bulb has a wider base (housing the power supply electronics) which won't fit some light fixtures.
