Well, telling us the type of electricity it takes, its voltage and its amperage would help us out. Without that information I can only guess. I'm assuming its 12 volts DC and draws under an amp so you can probably get by with a simple rheostat.

Nah not 12V thats the 5V from the USB Port.
I checked it up it should be 0.38A, 1.9W at 5V.

Many years ago, I came across a guy working with a small, all wheel drive articulated tractor. Much smaller than pic. About the size of a 'garden tractor'. It sat pretty low to the ground and that sucker could handle prctically any terrain.

I'm thinking it was a Kubota (orange and I seem to remember the name). But I've never seen a little one like that since.

What's the smallest all wheel drive articulated tractor on the market, now or in the past? This is something I could use.

22 KB,
So long story short, I bought a condo about a year and a half ago. I haven't paid off the mortgage obviously, and it was a 30 year payoff plan or whatever.

My aunt is a realtor so she really knew what was happening. But things have happened and I was considering moving/selling the place. But since I have had the 30 year agreement or whatever, what happens if I want to sell it and haven't paid for the entire thing (basically barely any of it, actually)?

Do I have to pay for the other 28.5 years? Does the bank take it and then when the next buyer purchases,...

you have to talk to the bank. the new owner will probably take over your mortgage and pay you the difference if you are able to swing it. if the rate stays the same it should be a better deal than if it is cleanly purchased. if its variable rate there's no benefit to anyone.
>>
>>938150
First off, you see if you can get more than you put into it. I assume you got a good deal if your aunt was the realtor and didn't fuck you.

If you have a net profit, you pay the mortgage off in full. Otherwise >>938174.

Hey /diy/, I broke the frame of my glasses when I went snowboarding. It broke the bridge of my frame. My frame is made of acetat and I want to use acetone to attach the two parts back together. However, with my bad eyesight of -9 I need my glasses through the day. What I have read from the internet seems that it needs to dry 24 hours. I can't go without my glasses for that long, so what happens when I let it dry for 14 hours. Should that be sufficient? Or should I just keep them taped together and wait until I get my new glasses?

Could you please suggest a simple finishing schedule to me for my walnut chandelier. I want it to be a very dark but be able to still see as much of the grain as possible. And would you be so kind to include the drying time I need on each step? And could you please suggest products that won't take very long to cure/dry?


Just a quick note I must add:

I already tried to finish this slab of walnut using BLO, then Watco Danish oil, dewaxed shellac and crystalac grain filler but somewhere I messed up and the piece turned not so very great. Some spots seemed...

Hey /diy/ers. Mind if I pick your brains?

My Mom's water heater fell through the floor of her trailer.

What's the easiest way to get it out of the hole and either fix the hole or come up with a more temporary solution until I can get a professional in there? I was thinking of crawling under the house with a car jack and seeing if that can hold it up long enough. How stupid of an idea is that?

Pic related, that's what she sent me.
Thanks in advance.

You could try it.
Maybe you can lift it high enough and then slip 2x4s under it to sit it on, where the floor hasnt fallen through yet.

Im not sure how else I would lift that thing, other than typical bear hug removal of it, which would be difficult.

Turn off water.

Lift it up.

As for a temp fix. A base of some sort like cinder blocks and some plywood.

I would like to install a hidden push button switch to override the immobiliser on my car. Reason being is it is a key fob style (pic related)that you push into a receptacle to disarm immobiliser and it gives me the shits

Bonus points if I can retain functionality of the immobiliser as its law over here to sell a car with a functioning immobiliser.

I picked up a Line Trimmer off the side of the road two days ago. It had disintegrated fuel lines and old fuel still in it. I emptied this out completely, rebuilt the carb, installed new fuel lines and filter, put in a new spark plug, and I've cleaned carbon deposits from the exhaust port and spark arrestor.

It now starts, but sometimes bogs down straight away, other times it will run well and idle great. There's a little bit of oil(fuel?) leaking from the exhaust still, and it blows white smoke on idle and blue smoke when I hit the throttle.

Any suggestions...

That's normal m8, mostly anyway. Two cycles burn oil to lubricate themselves.

Otherwise if it seems like too much smoke it probably just leaked, while it was out of service, from the carb into the muffler coating it and should stop after it's all burned off.

Either way it wont hurt anything except the environment but you offset that by not being the cunt that throws these things away after a season.

>Trimmer blowing white smoke on idle and blue when revving

Oil is leaking into the fuel.

Oh wait....

You probably mixed too much oil in the fuel.

Take the muffle off and see what happens. Don't over rev it though. The muffler can serve as a rev limiter in those but if its internally blocked with oil deposits they have to go one way or the other.

If the carb was rebuilt using the old rubber gaskets etc pic related you can have issues. I have tried cleaning them and all but once the are hardened they are never the same again.
