Broken papasan chair - how do I fix this and make sure it doesn't happen again?

Ac compressor

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
not exactly a DIY question but I figured you guys might know. The compressor in my ac unit is dead. I have an electric heat pump system. This hvac guy is telling me I need my entire ac and heating system replaced, not just my compressor. He says acid from the broken compressor backs up into the coil, and in an electric heat pump he can't replace that coil by itself. He says if we just replace the compressor the acid will cause it to break within 8 months. This does not jive with what I have read nor what another hvac guy told me. Is this guy full of it?

Need help/advice for improving a LED light setup

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I recently got my hands on a light-kit for a project, and looking over the design of it I fell like I should be able to improve upon, which is why I'm asking for help here on DIY. The kit is made up of: 1- 45cm/18" LED strip 1- 62cm/24" SMD strip 2- 2 position slider switches Both of them run off individual N-type battery holders using A23 12volt batteries. I've been stumped trying to find answers to my questions about improving the functionality of the kit, as well as something specific about one of the strips so heres what I'm curious about: 1. Is it possible to wire the two strips to one power-source? 2. Is there a 4-mode switch out there, which will allow me to turn the individual strips on, as well as both at the same time? 3. In the picture you'll notice I've circled a section of the strip, is it possible to cut the strip without compromising it so it doesn't hang over like it does? Thanks in advance for any all and all advice.

I sell cupcakes and other sweets in events as a hobby to pay my other hobbies. Recently I devised and built a luminous box/display to hang on my neck to advertise whatever I'm selling. It works pretty much like intended, the only problems I've faced so far are: 1. The battery is fucking heavy on my shoulder, tho I guess there's no way around this and the tendency is to get even heavier the better the battery is. 2. Even though I've hooked it to a simple 1.2m led strip, the charge drains away so effing fast! I mean, it's just a simple led strip, I was hoping for at least 7 hours. Also, the potency goes down some good 30~40% after the first 30 minutes and then stays at 70~60% for two and a half more hours before fading too much. So, any ideas? Maybe I could change the design of the strap a little to better distribute the weight and/or use one more battery or something. What do you guys think? Picture is the current design info.

Quick question for you folks: about how much time do you estimate it would take to dig a man sized grave by hand (well shovel but still)? Obviously it would depend largely on how deep you wanted to go, the type of soil, and how strong the digger is, but could y'all give me some estimates? Pic unreleated

Any welders in here? Have been asked to do some 2.6mm CDS, I mostly just do thin sheet ~ 1mm so this is new to me. I'm struggling to get decent penetration as far as I can see, there is no colour change in the metal that i'd be used to due to the heat, and the beads generally seem to sit on to of the material, and not puddle up. Is this a limitation of my machine? On the box it says it can do up to 5mm, but i've never tried it. My machine is 135amp, using 100% CO2, 0.8mm wire.

Vapor barriers

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'm renovating my home and have tried to research as much as possible but would like to run some specifics by all of you. Here is an interior pic of one of my walls (that wiring will be replaced soon). If you were to dissect that wall, starting from the outside in it would be: -vinyl siding -horizontal wood siding -paper barrier thats looks like cardboard (I believe Kraft Paper?) -the vertical wood you see in the pic. My plan is to leave the current framing but install metal studs so I have something 16" on center and will make it easier installing insulation and hanging drywall. I choose metal studs because I think they would be easier to incorporate into the existing frame work. Should I also install a vapor barrier or retarder? I'm located in Pennsylvania; essentially between Philly and Pittsburgh. From what I've read, I don't think it's required or needed.

Hey /diy/, /ck/ here. I've been having fridge problems (Whirlpool fridge Model#ET18NK) lately (water leaking from freezer into fridge and then pooling and filling up crisper drawers). I unscrewed and took out the bottom panel of the freezer and found a BUNCH of ice and could see that the drain hole in the far back of the freezer was also frozen. I chipped off and removed all the ice that was covering the bottom and the drain hole in back and came back this morning to see that most of it had came back. I understand that this probably means that somewhere down that drain line is still frozen and the water just builds up and freezes again, eventually allowing some to drip into the fridge through these two parts (pic related), they are made of Styrofoam and cover two holes that lead down into the fridge, these tunnels are also lined in Styrofoam. SO I come here asking two questions, and before you ask I HAVE done some googling but everything is rather vague on what I should be doing (not to mention dated). How can I fix this/what can I do to determine the problem? AND what are these two styrofoam triangles for? The fridge was in the house when we moved in, did they just forget to take out some packaging? As you can see I broke one while pulling out the tray (they had frozen together). Thanks /diy/ you are my only hope.

Air compressors

14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
My brother recently got an air compressor free from a neighbor who was moving. The guy used it semi-frequently, it runs, safety features work, etc.. My question is how long should they last? The date stamped on it is 1998, and we don't know how well it was taken care of (the guy was kind of a dolt), but the thing looks like it was drained sometimes (by the PLIER MARKS on the plug). I took the plug out and a bit of gray shit came out with some moisture. When it dried it was like clay, and a magnet picked it up. Can't get a good look inside.. Worth using it or prob too old/corroded? I'd like to keep my limbs. pic related - like that one

Alright boys. Little electrical question. Now you're going to think I'm dumb and probably shouldn't be messing with anything electronic if I don't know the answer to this. You're right, but any help would be appreciated. I have a 5v fan and a 9v battery adapter. Leads and all. I want the simplest cleanest voltage drop for a constant 5v to the fan. Can I simply put a 5v voltage regulator in the chain? 9V + to input, Fan + to output, Fan - 9V - to regulator common? Is that how the shit works or do I need to do anything more complicated? I figured there would just be an easy diode drop, but couldn't find any. Thanks.

Hello, got myself a case that has an awesome Eminence 12" 250W speaker and a titanium driver... the case seems to not match the speaker, because the bass is not very prominent. What is the simplest and best way to build a box for nice tight and massive bass?

Recently Completed Projects

Finished building my first big boy forge today. I did my first welding today on the angle iron that connects to the the forge body. My welds look like shit, but it seems to hold. Overall I think it turned out pretty nice. Unfortunately it's too late to do blacksmithing today. Anyone else got some recently completed projects they'd like to share?

So, I found a cheap ibanez guitar similar to the one in the pic. I wanna do a reshaping, a paintjob and set it up to give it to a friend of mine so we can jam together (I play drums, and am learning how to play bass). So here come the questions. -What can I do in the reshaping section withou actually destroying it -What kind of paint can i use to make it look good -What can I do to make this cheap shit sound a bit better

Bicycle brake cables

I'm fixing up an old Puch bicycle, and I've hit a problem while installing new brake cables - The handlebars are straight, aka MTB style, so I bought mtb brake cables (the kind with barrel ends instead of pear shaped ends). That's the same kind as I took out, which I've since thrown away. My problem is that I can't push them into the handles. Do they come in different sizes, is it because it's vintage and/or European? Am I doing something wrong? Attached is the empty handle, following is how far into the handle I can push it.

So I have a hardwood floor in my bedroom >pic related and my house is a little older and the floor now SQUEAKS LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER. Holy shit and it's not just one board it's multiple places all over the room. Is there a way I can fix this without tearing shit up? I know I saw a life hack or something that said you can sweep flour into the cracks and fix it but I dont know if that will actually work and before I look like a dumbass pouring flour everywhere I'd like to know if there's a better way to fix this.

Wondering if anyone has any experience with these types of electromagnets? I need one with a holding force of approximately 150lbs. I don't want to buy from ebay or amazon at the risk of getting a weak or faulty product that doesn't work as spec'd. I'm having difficulty locating a reliable seller.

Electric bike

I'd like to build an electric bicycle with a motor and car batteries, but I don't know how to transmit power from the engine to the rear wheel. How do I do that without making the engine and pedals move together?
