not quite my chair.jpg
20 KB,
Hey, I'm a bit of a stranger to these parts and to DIY in general but I was wondering if anyone could maybe give me some advice. The arms of my chair are starting to come apart after a few years of use*, it's that soft rubbery-plastic stuff and both arms are developing rather large cracks in multiple places. It's mostly along the sides and bottoms so they're still reasonably comfy but in a few more months I wouldn't be surprised if one of them fell off entirely which would be less than ideal.

Since the rest of the chair is in fantastic shape...

I had this exact same problem with my chair (which looks almost identical to the one in the picture). I looked up the manufacturers phone number and gave them a call to find out if i could order new ones. Instead they said the chair was still under warranty and sent me new ones for free. I had no proof of purchase, just gave a guesstimate date of purchase. Hope this helps!

Oh wow, I hadn't even considered that. I'll have to make a call, thank you.

>I have a Max Air compressor. How do I connect the valve to the compressor?
You could use any line with the correct end fittings, but normally there is a copper line connecting the compressor to the tank.

Pic related: on a better brand, the hard line will have some kind of heat-radiating fins on it. I dunno where to buy this stuff tho; I've only ever seen it in compressors and HVAC equipment. ....Smooth copper line will work also, if that is all you can get.

it appears to be connected.

Hi dinosaurs

I have pic related. It is broken and won't build pressure past 100 psi, and motor won't cut off. I have already bought a replacement. What is worth salvaging off of this thing, versus just scrap metal?

The receiver. You could have it in line from your new compressor and have a potentially larger air capacity.

Sounds like its just a seal or maybe the release valve. Fix it.

>>922340
I had thought about this. I was thinking of mounting it somewhere and building a shop system with one of those iron pipe condensation radiator setups. I tell myself I don't have room right now, but then I tell myself that shouldn't be enough of a reason to scrap metal the thing.

So, I bought these Gedore screwdrivers and they are getting a little rusty where there is no vanadium coating. Is it normal? What can I do to prevent this? They are stored in my drawer and they had no contact with water at all.
Thanks in advance!

Motor oil or grease will prevent rust on tools

yep it's a good idea to give tools a light coating of grease or oil

>They are stored in my drawer and they had no contact with water at all.
The moisture in the air car be enough to rust tools. A coat of some kind of oil will do as other anons already said. Or you could just clean the rust off with light steel wool whenever it occurs.

what if you make an RC plane's wing by first constructing some ribs out of balsa wood, make them all stick together with some carbon fiber rods, and then put some type of material over the top? What material though?

>>924651
if we're already looking at carbon fiber rods, why not do the foam core with epoxied carbon tape on top thing?

Even if not that, I'd look at some sort of cloth or cloth-like material I could add rigidity to, like fiberglass or something.
>>
>>924653
I've seen it done with cling wrap like material before
>>
>>924651
Wow, never thought this skillset would ever be used again.

You don't need carbon fiber rods for the spars, you can use something like birch.

To cover the wings an fuselage, you have choices. There's traditional paper-and-dope (it's a special type of paper), or silk-and-dope (stronger, but heavier and more expensive, and as I recall a little harder to work with), or there's a type of heatshrink plastic, but you need special equipment to work with it, namely a special type of heated iron...

EBay. Haven't had any issues with the part not working, they work perfectly.
Only issue is they feel cheap, but a screen protector should fix that.

I have a pair of old combat boots with very worn soles. I love the damn boots but they are too slippery to wear in the winter

Is there anything I can do to the sole (other than attaching climbing spurs) to make it have more traction in the snow? any ideas?

thank you

i think theyre slippery because the rubber in the sole is very hard to begin with and you use them in winter temps they lose all grippyness

Hey there DIY, I have a question for you guys. So I bought this Jiu Jitsu dummy at a yard sale, normally these are pretty expensive but I got it for like $25. It seemed pretty good except that it’s not completely filled in some areas so I figured I’d get some scrap cloth and beat it/press it into the dummy with a baseball bat and fully fill it. Well I tried for about 6 hours and could just never get the lower legs to fill to a point where I was happy with it. The lower legs were filled at the factory and are hard, but the upper legs no matter how much I tried to pack in...

Err could never get the upper legs filled to a point where I was happy with it, the lower legs were fine*

I would install a fleshlight.

That said, look up how to stuff a duvet. I doubt you would struggle to fill it with 100kg of cloth by hand.
>>
I'll take a look at that, but honestly I tried smacking it with baseball bats, shoving in more and more cloth with the tip of small wooden dowels etc nothing could get it compressed enough. I really think the shop press is the answer.
