sup /diy/ I need some help with a projection screen I got for free from Craigslist to use as a sun shade on my balcony. I set it up and ran into a problem. I can't retract it easily. It seems that the ratchet/pawl mech only wants to retract a few inches at a time, and I find myself in a 1 step forward, 2 steps back battle.
My question: Can I somehow set this thing up so that the spring is always in "retract" mode? I'd anchor it at the bottom and when I need it to go up just remove it from said anchor.
One end is a round pin that spins,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
These are quality, expensive screens - fkn waste as sunblinds. Apart from that, are you trying to operate at an angle? vertical only operation should work (better..). then hang ennd over something.. dunno how you setup at the moment, but they definitely designed for vertical use.
>>1015158 >the other is a flat key that fits into a bracket to hold tension >>1015180 >but they definitely designed for vertical use. However it is mounted the flat key should be in the vertical || position.
>>1014927 Plug it into a fused outlet and put a meter on it. If it's not obvious, open it up, plug it back in, and trace the power from the source to the destination. If all that seems to work, then you're fucked bc it's not electrical lol
>>1014935 Ignore the request for details. http://www.purewaterproducts.com/img/docs/manuals/IMI-104c.pdf The polyfuse might have died (the one that cuts the pump if they overheat) or it might be time to replace bits - see the bottom of the manual.
>>1014812 when it droops like that it means its hot as fuck. The plant droops its leaves to avoid being overheated by the sun, usually means its dehydrated. I would be more worried about whatever is eating your leaves
Sharpen it.But you'll have take off more material to fix it. A bench grinder or a belt sander with an old 120 belt could help the process. I mean you have like 3-7inches of material there. Just keep sharpening it til there's nothing left
>>1014754 Just to be a pedantic shit, you can't really sharpen it all the way down like >>1014776 said, they're not hardened for their entire length, but you're looking at maybe grinding off 1/16". I assume you know a little about hardening, and that if you just stick them up against a grinding wheel or belt you will overheat them and ruin the temper? If you don't know this, then take your time, grind for a few seconds (maybe 5?), then dunk it in cold water... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I need to replace the seals on the end of a hydraulic piston ( from a 4 ton porta pack type bending kit ). I can't find a parts list or manual for this kit. They seem to be a standard size and type - I.D. 3/4" O.D. 1 1/8" Vee type. I don't know what material to look for or if I should just buy a 'replacement set'. They seem to be 3 different plastics capped by a special steel washer and a bronze ring.
any suggestions on what to look for or where to buy seals (i.e. ebay/hercules/? )?
what torque do i need to put on the piston nut?

>>1014576 did you remember the way you put them together? (just making sure) also there are seal manufacturers that stock standard sizes. for types not sure, but it looks like a teflon, nylon and 2 rubber/urethane ones
put them all on the gound around a table. bucket of water on the table and strings of (maybe woven depends on size of plants) of wool from bucket into the dirt. now let the gravity do the work for you.
I live in a very dry desert and there are TONS of water bugs outside my house at night and they manage to get inside. I also have huge weeds despite there not being any substantial plantlife in the area.
I just found out that my neighbor is flooding her yard with water on a regular basis. I have no idea why. I think that's what is causing the weeds. Could it be causing the water bugs, too?
VLC could do it on a computer, the feature or interface might have been trimmed out of the android version, but you could probably get it back with the command line and then making a customer launch/shortcut/something for convenience.
Hey /diy/, is it possible for someone to make a /diy/ version of these things? If so, how do people generally do so? Some of them fail, and I'd need to know the components on what's needed to make these on my own.
Pic related, got some for 4th of july, but some failed for some shit reason.
>>1014358 Seriously? I gave you the fucking article, read it! >Despite producing a legitimate (albeit tiny) high-explosive detonation, the extremely high mass ratio of gravel to explosive acts as a buffer to ensure that the devices produce only the audible "crack" of the supersonic shockwave The more you add, the bigger the bang.

Newfag here, I hear that you can make lye, soap and biodiesel out of ash. Does that include the leftover ash from my coal-barbequing? And in that case, can I use this coffeemachine to make the lye by using ash instead of coffee powder?
>>1014240 So is potash is the thing in the ashes that give you lye from filtering boiled water through it? Sorry, I'm basicly entirely unfamiliar with the composition of these things, and not very good at chemistry, either. All I know is that the ashes would need to be burned thoroughly.
Also, the pot in the coffeemachine is made from glass in case that wasn't obvious, but is plastic an OK container as well?
>>1014248 >>1014237 Wood ash has potassium in it (quite a lot of it). When you mix potassium with water it makes potassium hydroxide, which is alkaline. That's your lye. Mix lye with a fat and you get soap.
I got a sewing machine from another person, the problem is the needle bar is shifted backwards and the needle hits the top cover of the feeding dogs Anyone has an idea why this is happening and how to fix it? btw the sewing machine is a singer 9836c
