Beginning Saturday night, my furnace started acting up, repeatedly going thru a start / stop cycle where it will run for 2-3 mins, then stop and about a min later, start up again and run for a min before stopping again, then 20mins later, it goes thru the same cycle again.
Called my hotrodder buddy today and he immediately said the problem was with the flame sensor and I did a bit of on-line searching around and the answer for others with the same problem seems to be the same; bad / dirty flame sensor.
Apparently the flame sensor is not detecting the burners igniting,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Now the flame sensor doesn’t look dirty to me, the ceramic part has a bit of black crud on it but the bent rod part looks fine (at least as far as I can tell?) and one of the on-line sites mentioned that flame sensors “don’t break”, so I dunno?
I guess my question is; does /diy/ agree with the above and also, how likely is it for a repair tech to try and scam me, claiming the entire burner assembly or whatnot is bad and all kinda stuff needs to be replaced for a bazillion dollars, or that the part...

>>939086 - get a multimeter ($1.99 HarborFreight will do), and check FS operation yourself. Google/YouTube how to attach meter and check reading, takes 2 minutes. They (FS) also cost fuck all, replacing it as a precautionary / possible solution may be the end of your woes.
You cant cope with that, you deserve to get ripped ;) Ask around for a Tech recommend, they aint all a-holes, and a good heating guy will save you a lot of hassle otherwise. It also sounds like you are not servicing that shit either? Once a year service... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Building a work bench and I want to hang a shop light overhead (attached to the bench, not the ceiling) but I don't want to use a pull cord/chain to operate it or a switch on the unit itself. I would like to wire it to a normal light switch and power it with a normal plug. I googled and can only find results for wiring a switched outlet - not what I'm trying to do.
Also taking suggestions on the type of light I should use. I don't know much about lighting but I know I don't want something that will buzz like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello there, diy. So I'm going to buy a gun and there in Europe we have to have a safe for storing it. Problem is that the price for a gun safe starts at 200 euros for a simple one, so I want to try to build it myself. I have a MIG welder so I think I could build it by myself for ~50 euros. The requirements for self-built gun safes are: -everything is made of at least 3mm steel -lock is hidden behind doors (no padlocks) -hinges is also hidden to avoid easy access to breaking them The only problem which I can't solve is hinges. How do I hide them without... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm trying to repair a VCR that won't play or fast forward, narrowed it down to the forward reel. When I took out the deck mechanism I noticed both brakes on the reel were engaged. Guessing it's some form of mechanical failure, I'm not really familiar with VCR's. I'm pretty sure some of you know your way around this thing, I'd appreciate the help.
>When I took out the deck mechanism I noticed both brakes on the reel were engaged thats the way they are supposed to be when there is no taped loaded.
>won't play or fast forward thats a problem with part 33. the rubber band that is wrapped around the section that engages the reels to the drive shaft is no good. you'll need to replace the whole assembly (can't just replace the band).
>>939340 >thats the way they are supposed to be when there is no taped loaded. By spinning the capstan motor I can engage the backward reel, hence why the rewind feature works. I assumed that both backward and forward reels are supposed to be able to engage one at a time when you spin the capstan one way or the other. https://youtu.be/JInq2EP91kA?t=1m10s

My dog tore up the flooring in my apartments bathroom today, where would I start on fixing this myself as I don't want to deal with anyone from the apartment and paying way too much for them to fix it. Also how difficult will this be?
>>938830 sheeit, i have that exact flooring, weird. you're probably fucked but i would just have a flooring guy come in and do it for you undercover. or the other option and what would look best would be to tear it all up and re-floor it yourself from youtube vids if you're not a retard. sand the wood and wall scratches and use filler if needed and repaint.
also get a kennel and bark collar for your dog you dumb nigger dont lock it in the fucking bathroom when you go out to buy anime and yugioh cards
>>938798 the regulations have specified that spinning blades must come to a full and complete stop within 10 seconds of the power to the blade being shut off if the blade is readily accessible to the operator's body.
Large fab shops and equipment used industrially have retractable blade guards, or heavier duty engine brakes to comply with the regulations.
I am looking to do some mold-making at home using silicone for molds and resin for the casting material. I design figures/vinyl toys/custom console shells as a hobby and want to get more serious about it. I have done so successfully with some kits from Hobby Lobby (Gotta love those coupons) but long term it is not a viable option.
I am looking for websites that sell from the US for casting resins. The one that seems the most useful is the EasyFlow 60 casting resin. My only issue is that molding and casting shells for handheld game systems means the plastic has to not... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I got bored and decided to do the math on what it would take to make a moon base out of modified intermodal containers.
First, some basics:
- An unloaded, stock 40 foot intermodal container weighs about 2.5 tons, a loaded container can usually hold up to 8 tons - 1 atm of air inside it is about 14 lbs/square inch. Using that as a baseline, a container that could remain airtight in a vacuum would also need to remain watertight at a depth of 10 meters (where PSI is 30 lbs/square inches) - The Apollo program spacesuits each weighed about 145 pounds, with eight...

Anyone have input on the Miller Digital Elite VS the Lincoln Viking 3350 series?
Any input would be appreciated.
>my main question I don't understand why the Lincoln is "rated" for overhead welding and the Miller is not. Can the miller not handle getting hot metal sparks or globs bouncing off it or something?
The only other thing is the miller takes non standard lenses but it has that sweet arc magnetism sensor that eliminates getting flashed outside as extra protection along with the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My gf wants to replace the carpet at our place without hiring someone. Can someone explain how to pull up the carpet and replace it with hardwood floors. The online how to's don't really make much sense to me.
you will need a utility knife to cut the carpet into smaller sections, a hammer to remove tack strips (also known as gripper rod (UK), carpet gripper, Smoothedge (Can), tackless strip, and gripper edge) is a thin piece of wood, between 1 to 2 metres (3.3 to 6.6 ft) long and about 3 centimetres (1.2 in) wide, studded with hundreds of sharp nails or tacks used in the installation of carpet. - wikipedia )
installing hardwood floors isn't even that complicated either. you can get this project done in a day.
Dude its a piece of hard material used to hit things. How much money do you really need to spend on one and what the fuck is there to discuss? >THIS ONE HITS SHIT BETTER THAN THAT ONE >NO FUCK YOU THIS ONE DOES
Slight offtopic, but are any of you here also interior designers? I'm trying to find minimalist-style furniture for a mid-century house I'm renovating.
Pic related is $3000 and obviously I dont need quality like that but something similar under 1k would be nice. I dont think places like Walmart or Target carry think kind of thing. I dont want plush or baggy like most typical furniture.
Anyone here a home inspector? How did you become one? Im seriously considering quitting my apt maintenance job to do this. Tired of busting my ass for little pay. Good with hvac and pools and have a detailed eye.
