What model is it? You can probably find a teardown guide on YouTube. Some laptops have a spare set of antenna for a 3g/4g modem that you could use in place of the wifi antenna. They have the same connectors. Do you see anything like that in there?

Trying to extract a bolt with stripped head from alternator chain guard. I first tried with impact driver but the head was too far gone. Then I thought to use screw extractor, but the bolt is so small I can only fit the smallest one in my set, and it's end is so small (and the bolt so tight) that if I try to grab it with pliers or adjustable wrench it just slips. Any ideas? Makes me wonder why they don't sell wrench with the extractors that would have heads that fit the extractors...

the head looks fat enough for vise grips to dig into

six inch pipe wrench
or weld a nut onto it

next time you're using an impact screwdriver make sure you use a bit that fuckin fits and isn't all chewed up and twisted from a previous job.

and while i'm being mad af, don't use ez-outs on seized fasteners for fuck's sake. they're for threads that turn freely but can't be gripped, like if you sheared a bolt through fatigue, or reamed out a grub screw.

>>994251
No welding equipment. I did use correct bit but the head was already little damaged so that was the result. I did manage to get the bolt out, bought vise grips and grabbed the extractor with that.

Can we get a tool appreciation thread going? Got this drill press a few days ago with a fucked motor(150W so useless anyway) for $50AUD, spent the same and 6 hrs in a traffic jam to get a 3 phase motor and VFD. This motor is brand new too, still had the plastic cover over on the shaft and none of the cable knock outs removed. tfw drilling round objects is now possible, tfw mounting a sanding wheel and using the VFD to over speed the motor to 4,000 rippums and grind my axe without ruining the metal.

a bunch of random sized clamps is good to have

good quality vise grips

a nice table mounted vise

Same, shitty drill presses like that used to sell for $50 at canadian tire before everything went to shit.

Not only a bunch of random sized clamps, but you can never have too many. In smallish and larger sizes. I say skip the midsized ones. I've never said my 24" clamps are just right.

Hey guys, I was wondering if i could get some advice.
I'm getting a new monitor today.
I want to stand my old on in a portrait configuration, but it's not built for that it seems.
It's an HP 2009m monitor.

Anybody do this ever?

Buy a cheap VESA mount

You see the square HP logo on the back?
Pop the cover off and there is a vesa mount holes behind it.

Buy something like pic related, and mount it in portrait.

If you are planning to have a dual screen setup with the old and the new, you can buy desk vesa mounts like pic related with 2 arms.

All the cheap ones are from the same exact factory so just find them as cheap as you can.

So my GE Nautilus dishwasher isn't draining. I've checked to see that the solenoid operates when turning the dial, it does. Also I checked the resistance. It was 35 ohms, online it said it should be around 40. When turning the dial the solenoid activates, when reaching the wash and rinse cycles, but not when reaching the plate dry or end of the cycle. IDK if that's normal or not, I couldn't find anything online.

I've also checked the filters for obstructions, and checked the drain valve to the sink, everything was clean.

I don't know about that particular model but most dishwashers run the motor in one direction to wash the dishes and reverse the motor to drain.

Is the motor running when it should be draining?

Also, I've seen a couple of cases where the check-valve in the drain hose was clogged causing it to not drain.

The solenoid operates to allow water in. It should not operate when draining.
>>
>>993830
The motor is running on rinse. Should it run on plate dry to pump the water out or is the water pumped at the end of the rinse cycle?

I'll take a look at the check valve in a bit.

How the hell do i get through hard concrete?

Im helping my parents to anchor a new panel into their living room.

Need to hole a 8cm deep hole, half of it is drywall, but when i hit what i assume is concrete, it wont go any further.

I was using a brand new concrete drill tip and a somewhat old 450w hammer-drill. The drill tip actually burned.

I used all my arm strength to no effort. I just havent put on torso and leg strength cause i fear it might actually break the drill.

Should i go after a stronger hammer drill? Am i missing some secret unspoken trick?

If you hit rebar, you'll be dead in the water unless you use a rebar-cutting concrete drill bit. Or you might be hitting a steel bar.

I'm also assuming that you drilled partially into the concrete. If not, then ideally, you would use your smallest drill bit and progressively increase drill bit size.

I'm finally gonna build a garage this summer. I'll try to take some photos. I'll never be Bunkerdude, but who will??

I'll most probably sheath it in ply (for shear strength) and side it with pine board and batten.

If you're wondering why the site has almost a year's worth of projects and only ~500 views, it's because I've mostly been using the site to show things to my friends and family what I do in my spare time.

Use a capture card to capture the composite output from the VHS player to your computer. Then burn a CD.

Not sure why you want to convert between two obsolete formats though.

>>995452
Not informative enough, OP.
What format is the CD? Are you going to store movie files on a data CD, or are you from Asia and love your video CD format?

In either case, you buy a video capture card or device that can input composite (or S-Video if you VHS player supports it) signals. They cost about $20-30.

I'm designing a beer fridge that's built into a cabinet, I plan to line the cabinet with an insulating foam and pass a thermoelectric cooler through a hole in the foam.

To calculate the required cooling load do I just take the K value for the foam, multiply it by the surface area, thickness and required temperature gradient and then pick a cooler that offers at least that wattage at the required temperature gradient or is it more complicated?

You might as well rip the guts out of a bar fridge. Using peltier devices is incredibly inefficient and you will end up with something that doesn't cool stuff very well while spending a fortune on electricity.

Long story short: She really likes ballgags. I'd like to give her a home-made breathable ballgag (it's easier to breathe with the first times), with some low-budget stuff, I already bought a ball with a little bell in it since it's made for cats to play with.

You mean using duct tape to put the halves back together after I take off the bell? I already washed it thoroughly, it was the first thing I did. I was thinking in using thin rope or something similar to go through a pair of holes in the ball so I can tie it up behind her neck.

So basically we all know that analogue signals that were once used for T.V are basically not used anymore (at least in Australia). So why aren't they being utilised for anything else then? I doubt it's even monitored anymore so the law wouldn't affect it too much

Some of the old TV frequencies are used for DAB radio, but otherwise, in principle, you right enough, lot of previous analogue TV broadcast frequencies are unused - Bongoland, you can actually use these (license free) if device automatically avoids intereference with existing users, or you can apply for a manually configured license.

For me, carfax reports only opened more questions. The ideal used car comes from a private seller with 1 or 2 previous owners who have kept a service records and self repair/maintenance logs in a book and proudly show it to you when you go look at it. I do this, too. This is the only way I know of that guarantees you're buying a good used car (or at least one with known issues). Sadly, these types of owners are few and far between.
