BROKEN WALLFLOWER (Bath and Body Works)

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 003_728.jpg]
Ok, so this sounds like a pretty gay thread, but as man of the house part of my job is to fix my lady's things. Also, shit does not smell good and the Cranberry Woods scent for these things smells awesome, so my girl bought one for me. They are great, but are notorious for breaking. You can take them back and they will replace them after some argument, supposedly. However, there are certain ones that are limited time only or discontinued and they look a certain way. My girlfriend wanted to know if I could fix her special Halloween one. So I hacked my broken one apart first. It seemed that they were just shittily press fit together, but after making mine look like shit I discovered that there 4 dots on the back around the plug which looked like production marks or something. With a tiny screwdriver you can pry them off, unscrew the 4 screws underneath, and they pry right apart. There are also two small clips to release from underneath the "flower" where you screw in the scent bulb, if it gives you trouble. Once I had it apart, I was amazed at how little is in there. There are 2 wires, the plug, a ceramic heating element and a small black component mounted in-line. After Googling, I found this item to be a Radial Thermal Cutoff. Basically, if it detects temps in excess of 130 F, a small bit of alloy inside melts, and surface tension draws it apart into 2 beads, breaking the circuit. PERMANENTLY. Its not a fuse, its not resetable, it just breaks it. You could replace it, but why. I cut it out and twisted the wire back together (too lazy to solder, come on, its a scent bulb.) Now it works again. Of course, it could overheat and burn my house down, but how the fuck is it going to do that? Apparently the issue is that power surges break the little temp cutoff and fubar the whole thing.

Im looking to make a sort of awning on the side walkway of my house between the house and the fence with a $0 budget. I was thinking of gathering pallets and doing some framing work with them to build up a wall along the fence and walls that reach to the walkway just under the eves of the house then building a roff that follows the grade of the houses roof. If done well enough i might even sheetrock the inside of the structure. My question is this, could it work?

Does anyone know how to replace the element in these showers? Mine made a pop sound and now doesn't work. I'm sure it's easy to replace but I'm pretty scared to try in case because if I get something wrong I will probably die. I tried googling but I can't find any guides or diagrams.

Decided to use /diy/ instead of /an/ for this one as it seems more appropriate. Yesterday I planted a curry tree in a bonsai pot. So as you can imagine my intention is to bonsai it. I cut the tap root about half way and planted it with its original soil and then packed potting soil around it. Before I did that I put small stones around the holes at the bottom of the pot to help with drainage and prevent loss of soil. I then watered it with a 1/5 mixture of earthworm piss and water. After that I soaked moss in water and dug it into the soil on top and strategically placed a rock for that oh so dramatic effect. amidoingitright.jpg? Also any tips for someone new to the world of bonsai? >if you have a bonsai, post it! >tl;dr Bonsai thread pic related: it is a poor quality photo of my recently planted curry tree bonsai

OK chaps, I think this is something you might be interested in. I want to construct my own DIY cryo-freezer/defreezer device. I completed a BSc in Engineering and am currently a medical student (1st year), nevertheless I have no clue how to do this. As far as I know my university has no cryogenic freezing device, not a professor who knows stuff about it, but I will ask around a bit, maybe I get lucky. Before I do so, however, I need to collect some basic information. I did some research on the interwebs, but I don't really find anything useful. >What is the problem? Well, freezing with nitrogen is the basic idea, but the samples will experience a thermic shock (especially biologic samples). I'll need to set up a machine that monitors the freezing process. My programming skills are mediovre at best. Is an Arduino board a good start for it? Would it be capable of monitoring temperature and changing the energy output? I think it should be suffcient. I don't expect many replies, but any constructive reply would be helpful. The idea is: if I approach a professor with a basic concept or even a prototype I might spark his interest, or be at least taken seriously.

Hey DIYer's, i have a situation for you since this board probably has the most homeowners/apartment renters on it... My landlord is withholding some of my security deposit because he thinks the gutter's run-off drainage clog is due to my plants that I had on the roof. When I say roof it isnt the actual roof of the house, its this flattop area on the third floor of our apartment that is accessible through our living room windows. Last summer and this summer I had two potted plants up on this roof area that were no bigger than 2-3 gallons. They were for sunflowers. My landlord tells me run-off from the soil through normal watering and when it rains has clogged his gutter drain with soil at the top and bottom of the drain. I have only had the plants up there 5 months tops and cant imagine that they would 'leak' enough soil to clog the drainage system on the side of the house. He can't provide me a proper answer as to when the last time he cleared the drain and is charging me so he can clean it. Is this something that can be removed by sticking a hose down this drain and blasting it with water to remove this 'clogged' soil or do i need some sort of drainage snake? Your thoughts? Pic related, its not the actual gutter drainage system but it looks similar to this.

Toothpick Bridge General

Hi /diy/, I have to do a toothpick bridge project. Don't fucking ask why. Rules: >Bridge built with provided toothpicks and glue >free-standing gap between the abutments of at least 30 cm >roadway level must be 5 cm wide 30 cm long >space under bridge must be 5 cm high >glue only points of contact; picks can overlap but not double up >failure when bridge flexes more than 2 cm

Hey /diy/ I need some seriously flat speakers for a project I'm working on. Like...speakers that are...5x1x4 inches, or whatever that is in metric units(not good with metric system, my apologies). And also, i need a power source that will be able to supply eight of these speakers with electricity small enough to be carried around (I.E. not a fucking bulky car battery). Any help at all which you could supply would be so fucking awesome, within a few weeks if all goes well I'll upload some pics of what I've made. Trust me when I say it will be fucking awesome (if it works). Picture unrelated

I need capacitor advice

My old Samsung Syncmaster 205bw died on me and I decided to pick up the ol' Weller and fix it in the /diy/ spirit. I do have a couple questions, however. Here are the bad caps I have removed from the board: 5x Capxon 820uF 25v 10x20 1x Capxon 330uF 25v 10x13 Would you help me find proper replacements for these, please? I am looking for caps online, as there are limited options in shops where I live. I'd like to order from Hungary, Europe, and would like some tips on what to get and where. I heard I should go for Panasonic FC series caps. All tips and information are greatly appreciated, gentlemen.

/diy/, I has a question. The management of the building my flat is located in decided to reduce the tenants' (yeah, that includes me) drain on their budget by limiting the usage of shared electricity... By making sure we can't use any common electricit- powered appliances in our basements. The fuckers did that by severing the existing instalation and laying a 24V AC one instead to provide lighting (I am fairly sure it's a pretty bad investment, but what do I know). Regardless, I want my electicity back, so I decided to cook up a 24 to 230 V transformer and tap into the new installation. Questions are: Is it worth coughing up the additional money for a toroidal transformer? Will the transformer heat up much? I'm asking because I only have experience with lower powered ones. How do I voltage spike-proof the circuit? As in, exactly how, because although I know the basic principles I still need it explained in detail because I'm a retard. Anything else I should keep in mind?

Hey /diy/ I'm looking for a "beginner's guide to" "survivalists guide to" etc etc for farming. I want to start farming, but would rather teach myself through research than pay tons of money for training. Any guides that you know of?
