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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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!
>>922371 >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.
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?
>>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!
>>924999 >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 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...

Hey /diy/. I was wanting to make a costume with this sort of hat thing to it. Any ideas what it is called and how to make one? Posting in here because I didnt know if this is the right thread, but you guys seem to know how to make things. Sorry for the weeb pic. Only one I can find
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
Hey /diy/ Lately i had this idea to try and sculpt a mask as the one in >pic related Never done something like this so i would like to have some advices and suggestions by you guys. Like: where do i start? What materials do i need? Tip For better results? Also if you have some video tutorial it would be great
>>923684 Have you never heard of 'wrecking yards' or 'auto dismantlers' or 'auto recyclers'? How about 'Pick 'N Pull'? It's not like you're going to go to the dealership and buy a brand new speedometer for a 24 year old piece of shit Nissan. Google! >2016: being this young and dumb
