• I just painted a sign for use outdoors and now I need to coat it so it's not ruined when it rains. What should I use and how?

    I'm using a water base paint for a sign. The last one I made ended up running when it rained. Now I'm doing one this time with a protective coating.

    I'm using a water base paint for a sign. The last one I made ended up running when it rained. Now I'm doing one this time with a protective coating. So I need to have an idea of what I need to do in order to get the best protection. The last experiment was with a coating of varnish and that didn't seem to work out to well. I now am trying a water soluble sealer. I just painted the board and let it dry to the touch. When I put it on the colors seems to bleed together. So am I using the wrong stuff or is it a matter of letting it dry some more?

  • Is my ring worth looking for?

    A couple of years ago I dropped my ring into the shower drain. This drain had no grate and it was just a giant hole.

    A couple of years ago I dropped my ring into the shower drain. This drain had no grate and it was just a giant hole. It's been a couple of years now and I wonder if I am able to to hire a plumber to check if I have a chance that my ring could still be down in the S-pipe. I ask because my ring was made of gold and over 100 diamonds so I believe it might be heavy enough to withstand the water. However, I have no idea how much plumbing costs nor the estimates.I also wonder how am I able to find out if my house even has a p-trap or s pipe. It's a fairly old house. Thanks for all the input.

    my dorm has pretty weird walls and I tried hanging a poster with regular tape but it falls off. I even tried hanging my white board with some double sided foam tape it came with but that fell off too. I would try duct tape for the poster but it would ruin the look. My dorm walls are white and I believe theyre made out of concrete with some type of gloss over it. Any tips? I was thinking of buying this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OXVG9FW/ref...

  • About using two different types of drain cleaning fluids?

    I used one brand, and it didn't work. So I bought some heavier duty stuff, but I hear that you should NOT mix two different types, as that can be toxic to inhale. How long should I wait? Will running water through be good enough?

  • Can the glass table sit directly on the metal frame without the rubber pieces?

    I bought a used end table that is has 2 L-shaped metal legs, and the top is a piece of glass that sits on the legs. There are supposed to be 6 little button-size rubber pieces on the frame so that the glass does not rest on the metal directly. Hard to describe but you've probably seen it before.

    I bought a used end table that is has 2 L-shaped metal legs, and the top is a piece of glass that sits on the legs. There are supposed to be 6 little button-size rubber pieces on the frame so that the glass does not rest on the metal directly. Hard to describe but you've probably seen it before. Since my table was used when I bought it, most of them were missing, so I had to take them all off. Can the glass sit right on the metal frame? Or can I buy generic replacements somewhere?

  • I plugged in my toaster and the outlet practically exploded, sending soot flying all over my hand. Is this a problem with the outlet or plug?

    Best answer: The toaster apparently is responsible but, you are still going to need to visually inspect that outlet(receptacle) for damage. I'm taking kill the power and pull it to see if it is burned or melted on the sides or back, as well as the wiring.
