Replace the plastics. There is nothing that will work better.
Once new plastics are installed, check the screw tightness regularly. Loose screws are the only real reason the plastics fail over time to the point the retainers fall out. Screen hinges put a lot of force on those screws, so they wiggle out over time, which gives the motion more leverage and wobbles the retainer intul it splits the plastic and the whole thing falls to bits.
Ugh, you might, and I emphasize MIGHT, get away with hot melting new plastic into the holes, then use a soldering iron to melt... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This was literally just "because I can" entertainment. I'm stationed up in Thule, Greenland and ripped an old rotary phone out of an abandoned radar building up here.
I drug the thing down to my place on main base and proceeded to splice it into a regular RJ-11 jack (yes I know this is easy to do with parts stateside but I don't have them up here). The easiest option was just to open up the phone and connect red to red and green to green. Phone wiring colors haven't changed in decades.
On first attempt I got a dial tone and could receive... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello /diy/! I'm just wondering if anyone can identify this tool for me, I bought it at a flea market, the seller told me that it had a small hook at the blunt end that he'd snapped off, it's 7 3/4 inches long. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
Might not fit /diy/ 100% but it worths give a try. Does any of you lives in a house with very dry air? I moved into this studio apartment and I wake up every damn morning with dry mouth. May sound silly, but at weekend if I want to sleep more or stay in bed, I cannot because I feel like having a mask on my mouth that makes difficult to breath. As soon as I stand up, situation gets better, but it is annoying that if I want to rest. A couple of friends of mine that happened to sleep overnight had the same feeling too. This winter I could put some bowls with water on the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
One of my 5 meter HDMI cable connectors broke like pic related and I'm unsure if I should just throw it away or keep it for something else. What could be done with it? HDMI cables have 19 internal wires, if I'm not mistaken.
A new cable is cheaper than attempting to repair it.
You can make the paper look older by dragging a wet teabag over it and then drying it on the heater. The more you repeat this the older the paper will look. Furthermore you should follow your pic. Add some kind of seal, some rope, handwritten etc.
>>993402 I can't find a model for it so I guess your best bet would be to create a model by yourself. (sketchup, autoCAD or something else) and then get it printed. Then you can use your own dice molds.
so we're going on festival soon, and I have some parts left from various car setups from which I want to build a music box.
In the image you can see the components I have. I've got two questions though: - Can I use the input of the amplifier and connect it with a chinch-to-aux cable, so I can directly connect a smartphone to it? For a car radio you need a hi-lo-adapter... so this should work out right? - Will the battery last for a reasonable time? If it is completely full
Sorry for the bad montage lol. Thanks in advance for help!
I've got an old metal shed in my backyard that's been there since before I bought the house that I want to take down. I don't plan on replacing it with anything; it's just an eyesore. It's small, about ten feet by ten feet square. Don't know what metal it's made out of but I do know it corrodes. It's been sitting out there for about twenty years of storms and is slightly overgrown with ivy, so I imagine it can't be very structurally stable at this point.
I have a stepladder, sledgehammer, bolt cutters, and your average assortment of conventional house tools. I don't keep any power tools on hand, but I can easily rent some. I have experience using them, but not for metalworking, so I'm hesitant to leap into using them for that purpose.
Pic related is close enough to what the shed looks like. Sorry about the stock photo; I'm away from my house right now.
How would you guys suggest going about this project, aside from the general strategy of "empty the shed, remove the ceiling panels, and knock down the walls"?

That's a great idea, but unfortunately I should have mentioned that the shed is about thirty yards deep into a fenced-off backyard, on top of a fifteen-foot hill and in a thicket of trees. I don't think the pickup truck solution would be very practical
There's a few options now and none of them are expensive. What kind of data do you need to send? Do you need 2-way communication?
(shopping on aliexpress) 1. there are cheap single-channel rf setups that have a 4-button remote, and a receiving unit board. usually 315 mhz, cost = $3, range is maybe ~50 feet line of sight
2. there are cheap single-channel "arduino" board modules there too, that just use TTL input to transmit "pulses" from the transmitter to the receiver board. One-way only and you must write the system to tell what the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Rate my raised bed /diy/. First time gardening that not 1 tomato in a pot. Have cherry tomatoes, full size tomatoes, bell, jalapeño, and seranno peppers, onion sets, and eggplant. Bush beans in the back in some tilled earth but I'm iffy on them. Any input is appreciated.
I've got this hidden bookcase door that I need to stop from sagging.
W: 29 1/4"
D: 11 11/16"
It's twisting forward on the left side (shown) and I've got to find some way to rebuild it and strengthen it without showing anything in front (on the shelving area) and I'm limited on the sides and bottom for supports. Currently it's supported by another board screwed onto the right side which has had holes routed out for Soss hinges (Shown below)
>>993181 is this somthing you've built already and it's sagging? or are you just concerned from this model? I doubt MDF would sag like that over those dimensions unless you are actually having this floating like a door, and there is no support from the ground.
in that case I'd suggest reconsidering having it floating, especially considering it's a hidden door, you want it looking as set-in-place as possible.
if you NEED it floating, it's probably going to need a stud up the left side... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I've been building this lawn mower go kart thing for a while now but the motor on it is being a peice of shit. It's a 6.5 honda GX clone and when i got it it was pretty trashed. Since then i've done fucking E V E R Y T H I N G to it, but it still won't run for more than 3 seconds before dying. My thoughts are the previous owner fucked up the valves, it's pretty hard to turn over, and that's literally the only thing left i haven't fucked with on it. Any small engine gurus out there with some advice?
here's a tail end view, i took the valve cover off, checking lash with a feeler gauge.
just a list of shit i've replaced on this thing: new carb, spark plug, ignition coil, exhaust pipe, air filter, fuel line, fuel filter, kill switch, changed oil, new governor/throttle linkages, new pull starter, new side cover gasket. this thing is pimped out and i'm sick of it not running
I'm currently trying to fix a problem with cooling on my Asus G53Jw. I'm getting 60c-70c on the CPU when idle. I have done to usual things: replaced the thermal paste and cleaned the fans+exhausts. After investigating I found that the problem was down to the power wattage. The power profile (balanced and performance) keeps the cpu wattage at 54.21w. Setting it to power saving seems to be the only way to lower the wattage and heat. As this is a gaming laptop, I don't believe that keeping it power saving is going to do me any favours.
My Idea is to modify... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
