I'm trying to replace the kitchen sink for the wife. Sure I could go hire someone to do this, but I've been reading all about it, watching YouTube, etc. I can't even get any of these loose to remove the old faucet. What tools do I need? I've tried with my hand, wrench, and just leverage with random tools, but nothing. And I'm guessing it's an old design, cause I haven't seen these on any video, and even the lines are copper (I've read that copper is old school these days).

Leave the faucet and remove it after you remove the sink, if you need it. Disconnect the drains and water supply lines. Use 2 wrenches on those copper lines. One on each side of the connection, hold one and spin the other one. Remember! Righty tighty, lefty loosey!

Hah, I never thought to remove the entire sink, and then remove the faucet. That sounds far more fun than trying to fit under the sink, in the dark, yelling profanities. Let me double-check, and see what removing the sink would entail...
>>
Then remove those clips holding the sink to the counter (upper left in pic). Then use a thin putty knife or razor blade around the edge of the sink where it sits on your counter top, there is probably putty or silicone around that edge. Then use the faucet to help lift the sink away from the counter.

So guys I had a motorcycle accident a while ago I had to do a evasive maneuver with a following emergency break due a pedestrian crossing the street while red light which caused my bike to slide right away under my ass. Bike has obviously taken some damage which is to my luck only cosmetic .Most of damage like speedometer and the bent breaking handle is already taken care of. In the process of sliding away under my ass my front break handle bent over and hit my gastank twice leaving two small dents and the paint just broke off so I wanted to put some putty on the dents to fill...

Hello /diy/
I'm trying to repair these threeway Realistic Optimus speakers I bought a few years ago. They have a slight rattle and don't sound great. I was going to use the website SimplySpeakers to get some replacements for it.

What should I get? I don't know how to check the size of the speakers or if I should get fullrange or a woofer for the larger one. Kind of new to it. Any help is appreciated.

They're 8-ohms.

First off, partsexpress

second off, are you sure your Crossovers dont need recapped

Third off, you dont even have a matched pair.

And finally, you cant just throw random speakers into random boxes and expect it to sound good, literally doesnt work that way

Hey, I'm trying to get the tail plastic off my bike but the plastic isnt holding this hexagon bolt and as I use my wrench the entire thing is just spinning.

I tried shoving a can opener and screw driver but no luck.

I thought about using some plastic glue to get the hexagon bolt to stick to the plastic but thought I'd ask for any other ideas first, as I'm pretty sure it'll just create a mess and still fail.

Recently ive purchased a sheet o super cute 3d stickers, however they've started to peel off at the edges, particularly the bigger ones like the ice cream cone :/
The same is happening to the ones on my phone. Is there any way to fix them or are the stickers simply no good or not usable for handheld devices?

Depending on how permanently you want them on there, you could always try and seal them in some way, maybe a Mod-Podge like spray (but please do some experimenting first!!)

You may want to try asking /cgl/ as well if you haven't already, but don't make a new thread or they'll tear you a new one. Try the help thread, or a decora or craft thread if one's up. Check the catalog.
>>
Cover them with a clear varnish spray of some kind. Many kinds are available, most will work. Be very careful not to spray important things on your device, eg ports, screens, etc.
>>
>>929571
those stickers are just backed by regular double sided tape.

you want to replace those with industrial super strong ones from ebay.

just peal them off, scrap off or pull away the original tape layer, then put on the super strong ones to cover the surface, then trim off the edges with a fine scissors or use cutter knifes.

also, clean the surface you are sticking to with alcohol first before sticking them on again.

this will give you a permanent stick.

Hello /diy/, first time here. I have been creating some 3d printed add on kits for transformers and I would like to make these 3d printed parts into actual plastic pieces. I'd like to use some sort of mold. The video below inspired me to do this. I'm mainly looking for any sort of tips, tricks, and advice from the board. Thanks a ton!

Yeah the normal process would be to use a Vacuum Chamber and/or Pressure pot.

You can't really produce professional quality stuff without removing bubbles. If you're hand finishing and painting parts then maybe you can get away with it.

If need be you can Ghetto together a Vacuum chamber from a Stainless Steel cooking pot, a Length of thick Polycarbonate sheet and a Refrigerator compressor.

Although if you're producing your own parts you can almost certainly recoup any costs through...

So I've stumbled across globalindustrial.com and other, similar "commercial-centric" websites that seem to sell everything and anything and it got me thinking...what sort of industrial/commercial equipment can you buy online (or wherever, like at auction) that one could use for the DIY lifestyle (and/or mischief). e.g. telephone company "butt-sets" that you can use with ye olde phone cables.

You could buy some real nice glass cleaner or some fiberglass sealer.

Butt sets aren't really that exciting. You can buy one at home depot and everybody has got test hacks on the side of their house these days, you hardly need the test clips on the butt set.

Mostly they're useful because you can verify current and polarity with one or talk to your buddy on the other end of the line while you're splicing.

Not to mention that those are the shitty cheap sawhorses that bend and break if you even look at them.

I'd bump it up to a 4/10 if you used real sawhorses.

I was wondering if any of you know how to build an effective dehumidifier since i believe it was discussed here multiple times before.
So i have a tiny bathroom and when it's closed it will have condensed water on the window, the window goes along the roof so it is sideways, as you can see this has created a little mold before and needs to be replaced eventually.

I still have a little bit of NaOh left from making pcbs, i heard that is good at sucking up the water in the air. But I'd rather use something else if possible.

Any help is appreciated.

Do a dodgy job and wire up an extractor fan to the light circuit, vent outside. This way, you just flick a switch, light comes on, extractor fan comes on, air exchange.

Or jus a fan on the windowsill. Or just open the window. The thing is that you just need to push fresh air in there. Otherwise youll be buying a pale of painters dehumidifier every day.

>>929437
Alright thanks a lot,
then my problem is already solved because the window has a tiny vent on the top i never opened in the winter because i thought it would increase the humidity.

>>929442
Oh, also you will get condensation anyway if it gets cold enough. You can get double insulated windows to prevent this. A cold object will just make moisture condense out of the air.

Pretty sure my meter tests 172khz for loss for adsl2 dslam tests.

If youre a pro you should probably get a jdsu combination meter that can do all this. It will make everything better and your repeats will go to zero.

If you're just diying and playing around use an oscilloscope across a 600ohm resistor or something.

Is this actual? I though this difference in ringing was eliminated with the telephones with internal ringing circuits. This is true worldwide?
