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...
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.

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.
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.

Here's my question: I'm looking for dollars extra (I realize that's pretty tough without knowing materials- but pretty rough) or percentage extra to extend that south wall to give a 6 foot "knee"wall and therefore giving a second floor.
Hi /diy/, I make vacuum tubes. I make other things as well, but the tubes are by far the most interesting thing. I've been documenting my projects here:
If you have any questions, ask away. I don't typically browse here, but it seems like the best place to put this. 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. I never considered my projects to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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? I'm not looking to exactly calculate the maximum temperature differential achievable, I just want to get an idea... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
Anyone have an idea of how I could make an energy drink similar to Red Bull without paying the ridiculous $3+ per can? Caffeine pills are super cheap, so I figure I'd start there... but I'd like to get the other stimulants, like Taurine, in there as well.
Hey guys, a couple months back I've been developing an ever-growing interest in S&M related stuff, thanks to a girl who was also into that sort of stuff and was really keen on the idea of being my sub, even though she never did this with anyone else yet.
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.
What I'm asking here is,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Seriously, though, first thoroughly wash that thing, what's suitable for a cat may not be suitable for human. Cut the strap from an old bag if you have one, not sure how to attach it to the gag, though.
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
think previous anon was prob. thinking more of mobile phone frequencies. These were definitely auctioned.
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. MS and all sorts of people were doing WiFi trials in this space, dunno how that ended. aka white spaces, see:
>>995015 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.
