62 KB,
Trying here because hopefully someone might know:

So my last two jobs have had me dealing with algas sdi propane vaporizers, both pic related and their much larger big brother versions. The inlet valve is controlled by a large metal ball that floats on the lpg. When levels get low, it presses down on a metal rod that opens the inlet valve, letting more lpg in, a lot like how the float valve in a toilet works.

The problem I've run into at both companies is that the ball will get stuck up in the top of the cylinder. There's no buildup to clean nor any...

Vaporizing LPG causing temperature drop causing cylinder to shrink, trapping the ball?
Just a guess. I can't properly imagine how the system works.

I'd love to help OP, I really would. Possibly split them in half, do a half lap joint in the middle? That would probably just look like crossed dicks though. Take a sharpie and write "Not actual size" on the... shaft?... no matter what, so at least you're not embarrassed, and call it a conversation starter?

Hey /diy/, I need a piece of furniture for all my vidya geams. I was thinking one of those cube organizers might be nice, but they're all either tiny 2- or 3- square cupboards that won't hold everything, or they're giant monsters that would probably pick my TV like 5 feet off the floor, assuming they can even support my oldass Trinitron behemoth at all.

So, my next idea was to try and build something myself. But then I remembered that I have no experience and only a few tools. I'd like to get into woodworking/metalworking, but I've never really...

Step 1: give up trying to have everything hooked up to the TV at once.
Step 2: put each system in its own box with the games and accessories if possible
Step 3: rig up some video inputs and a power outlet so you can easily hook up whatever you want to play

Hi /DIY/

What kind of things do you carry everyday? I'm trying to become a more handy person ( have the right tools around at the right times, etc. ) and am looking for a good fixed blade for DIY-based tasks. Obviously there is a tool for every job, including blade shape, is there a good all-around option?

Also, can anybody tell me what the tool in the middle of this blade is supposed to be? I know what the other tools are ( hex wrench, bicycle spoke wrench sizes 14/15, O2 key, bottle opener and both inches/mm ruler ( inches on other side ) but can't...

Get a face mask, one of those disposable coverall and you'll need a sander.
Slowly cut back the layers around the crack and see how far the damage goes in. Fibreglass gets 'rot' so to speak where the layers separate as the epoxy has degraded- if the layers around the crack are able to be pushed in then you know its got some serious delamination and that'll generally be out of your amateur scope to fix.

If its still solid, then its a case of fibreglass, epoxy, more glass, epoxy, sanding and then repainting.

I am trying to fix a power outlet in my bedroom. i have replaced all of them with new receptacles and still don't have any power to only 1 of them. I don't know if it matters but the outlet used to have a space heater wired to it. I have made a picture to explain whats going on

The outlet does not work still. If you're talking about the space heater that used to be there, the space heater worked. i don't know why it was removed

>>986983
So the outlet worked until you plugged in a space heater and now it doesn't? Have you checked all the breakers in the main panel to see if any are tripped? There is no guarantee that all the outlets in your room are on the same circuit.

It is. And if it isn't, you can always make it sturdier.

Also, vibration isolation and "sturdiness" in the form of rigidness are fundamentally-conflicting goals. You DO realize this, right?

So much to ask before I even attempt to answer.
What is the relative position of the locker to the vent, the type of locker is it, the type of liquid, the type of vent, whether you want the liquid to remain inside the locker or flow outside, whether there's something inside the vent, is the vent covered with something, how much liquid are you squirting and what effect do you expect the squirting to cause, the viscosity of the liquid, why a bottle, whether you have access to any kind of pump or whether you have to build your own pumping system, what's your budget,...
