• How do I reattach a broken microwave door handle?
  • JB Quick Weld immediately getting hot when mixed?

    Best answer: All epoxies I have used give off heat! Most people use such little amounts that they don't normally notice. I have used epoxy floor coatings which are normally mixed by the gallon and I have had the same reaction you got in your syringe but on a larger scale.

    Best answer: All epoxies I have used give off heat! Most people use such little amounts that they don't normally notice. I have used epoxy floor coatings which are normally mixed by the gallon and I have had the same reaction you got in your syringe but on a larger scale. I honestly thought the can was going to burst into flames because it actually had smoke coming from it right before it turned into a brick of useless product. That was the only can in the batch that did that, so I have to think one of the parts was not up to spec.

  • How to fish ziplock bag out of toilet.?

    Best answer: How do you know it didn't go down all the way? A snake is the only option I can think of, if you're lucky the snake will catch the bag vs push it through. If it catches it, it will likely poke a hole in the bag, assume you're okay with that?

    Or, you could take the toilet off the floor.

  • My metal shed door is catching on the concrete entry ramp. What can I use to trim / shave the concrete so that the door no longer catches?

    Best answer: Angle grinder is the obvious way. Even a cheap one will do for small jobs and occasional use. Note that there are different disks depending on the task and materials, principally stone or metal and grinding or cutting. In this case you need a stone grinding disc. Mind your fingers.

  • Do I buy these if I want to change the color of my light switches?

    Do I buy these if I want to change the color of my light switches?

    Best answer: Those switches will work fine, as long as each switch being replaced controls one light or one set of lights, and there's not another switch controlling the same light or set of lights. Pick up a couple of two-way switches , of the same style, while you're at the store. If the installer needs them, you... show more

    Pick up a couple of two-way switches , of the same style, while you're at the store. If the installer needs them, you won't have to run out and get them, in the middle of the job. If they're not used, return them at your leisure.

    Thermostat won’t go below 72?

    I’m living in a dorm at college so I can’t really check anything out if there’s something wrong, hoping someone will know how to override or something?

    I’m living in a dorm at college so I can’t really check anything out if there’s something wrong, hoping someone will know how to override or something? My roommate and I don’t agree on the temperature and I just came back from class and saw it was at 71 (she had it set for 76!!). Went to turn it down to 69 which is normally as low as it goes and the perfect temperature for me, and suddenly it won’t go below 72? I can’t imagine my roommate figured out how to override it considering I can’t figure it out. It’s a Schneider electric thermostat, there aren’t that many options. I’ve tried pressing/holding the override button and absolutely nothing happens

    So I have a small shed with about a two foot brick wall extending up the base of every wall, which goes down about a foot into the ground below. The floor of the inside of the shed is just dirt, however. Can I pour a concrete slab just straight into the center, with some gravel, metal mesh and a weather proofing layer? Or am I going to have to connect the foundation slab to that surrounding brick wall? And if I need to connect it, how would I go about doing so? Thanks a lot.

    Hi. I have a huge collection of papers I have collected, since I have lived at my present residence, over the years. You might say I am a pack rat. I have a lot of papers that I have saved and accumulated for over a decade. My family and I want to move, and I need to focus on going through and throwing a lot of these papers out. I have to do this myself- my family and I are planning on moving, and we don't expect to take a lot of stuff with us. I don't have a paper shredder. What's the fastest and most effective way to go through and get rid of lots of papers you don't want and need, if you don't have a paper shredder? I am open to suggestions. Please help- thank you.

  • I purchased a portable generator and need your help!! Electrical engineers and electricians please answer?

    So I just bought a portable gas generator and it didn’t come with a power cord. I have a 220v 30 amp receptacle in garage that runs off a separate breaker in the panel. In the case of an emergency, I was going to backfeed the generator to that receptacle. I used Romex 10-4 (10 gauge copper, 4 conductors) to hookup the receptacle. The respectable has two hot, one neutral, and no ground. So I grounded the Romex in the panel and also screwed the other end onto the box where the receptacle goes. Now, the old generator power cord has a male end with three prongs. Two for hot and one neutral. However, the new generator that I have will only take l14-30 plug with has four prongs (two hot, one neutral, and one ground). So I was going to pickup a l14-30 plug from homedepot and cut the old plug off with cord and put the new one on. However, the old cord only has three wires. Two hot and neutral. Therefore the new plug I will put on will have no ground wire attached. Please let me know your advice if I can still use the cord and just have the plug with no ground wire attached to it. I don’t think the whole circuit is grounded at all because at the box in the garage the ground wire is just attached to a screw in the box and not actually to the device it powers.
