>>944697 1. Put bucket and towels under sink 2. Using pipe or strap wrench, remove the P-Trap from the drain pipes under the sink. 3. Say "EWWWWWW" 4. Using a stick, snake, thingy or whatchamajob, scrape out the glop from the trap and exposed pipes. 5. Put it all back together. 6. Don't plug up your sink again, cause you know how nasty it is to fix it.
So I got myself a Precor elliptical recently and it came with a 12" screen set up (PVS) that totally blows. It's an old lcd screen with only a coaxial and RCA inputs and for some reason, this shit costs hundreds of dollars. Seriously, look it up. It's absurd.
Anyway, I de-installed the whole screen setup and wondering what I could do to get a laptop setup going.
It's got this nice sturdy steel mounting bar with the standard 4-screw square.
I saw this video showing how to fabricate a tray out... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My electric dryer isn't getting hot enough. It's probably the heating element, this one is like $25 to replace BUT I have another new HE for a different dryer that does fit and looks almost the same but is a different model number.
How safe would running a different heating element be?
If it gets warm when you first start it up its probably not the heating element. The exhaust vent could be clogged causing the hi limit to cut off the heat. Check that first, turn the dryer on and go outside and check where it blows out. If it's not blowing out strong that's your problem.
I went on vacation for a week and while I was gone, there was a lot of weird weather, so now I have ice dams. I've thrown RoofMelt up there and scraped as much off as I could. Would it be too late to get the heated cables at this point? Any other suggestions?
>>944612 I would say toss up more salt, but make sure it's properly temperature rated (regular rock salt isn't doing shit if you're sitting at like -15 F, for instance)...but I don't know how that shit reacts with stuff like wood/whatever kind of roofing you have.
This is an old shower drain in the basement that I don't plan on using. I had a water problem at one point which is now fixed, and water would pool up in that divot. I was originally intending to take it out, so I drilled the hole into the pipe for water too drain into it. Now I'm not taking the pipe out and I want to cap it with a clean out cap. What would be the best way to seal up that hole in the pvc without chiseling out enough cement to slip on a coupling to cover it? I don't expect it to ever back up, but just in case it would be better if the hole were waterproofed.
So, I just picked up a used Lexus LS 430. I already love it to death, but it does have some character. Little paint scuffs, but no dents or loose parts. All of that I can live with, but this steering wheel bugs me. While the dash has been cared for, the wheel is cracked all over from sun damage. I can live with the look, but I can feel the ridges when I drive. If it's actually wood, I could do something about it. The problem is that I have no clue. Anyone ever try to restore these before?
Hey /diy/ relative newcomer here. I'm interested in robots/drones and robot/drone accessories. Specifically I wanted to purchase a 3D printer and make the robots myself. What are the best places for the cameras and guts and such? There are a lot of places that sell these things but I was wondering what you guys recommend. I was going to make a cat toy as my first project. It would be a little RC bird/mouse hybrid thing capable of flying and driving around the house and obviously be durable enough to resist the kittys claws and teeth. Probably won't happen for a while... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>944526 Before you start fucking around with money for 3D printers, I would recommend getting an arduino kit and starting off with small simple projects. Also, I would reconsider trying to make a robot toy for a cat, seems like a waste of money in broken parts and materials.
>>944531 Arduino looks like cool shit, would definitely learn a lot.
As for the cat toy, I would just use it as a learning experience. And I would find out if I really wanted to continue down the path of making robots. Plus I want a 3D printer period. Shit is just plain cool and I'm sure there are things I'd want to do with it I haven't even thought of yet.
>>944537 3d printers are awesome. I have a printrbot simple and a velleman k8200. You'll love it but it's not plug and play shit. There's a steep learning curve. Anyway, I suggest you start from a project such as Polargraph (Google it). Limited moving parts, and you can code your own driving software as an exercise.
>>944451 That was assembled from a kit, or at least from prefab components. Try a web search for keywords "prefabricated conveyor extruded metal framework" or similar. Then buy the kit or components you need and assemble with tools.
