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.

can someone explain to me WHY THE FUCK my apartment can't cool down with the windows open. heres the deal: >I walk outside it's nice, 75 degrees, pleasant. I'll turn off my A/C and open ALL THE WINDOWS (I have a shit ton of windows) >turn the A/C off @ 76 degrees...sit....and the apartment doesnt get cool. I feel no airflow. my apartment starts getting stuffy >turn a/c back on, reading is 80 (!) degrees SO WTF. I guess for some reason my apartment is super high pressure inside, and air can't come in? Do I need to wait for the outside temp to really drop down before opening windows? Do I only need to open certain windows?

What's the most interesting shape you can think up that uses four lines of the same length? I've got four ikea light bars and I want to do something interesting with them for my apartment window.

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

"Music Jacket"

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

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: P1020261.jpg]
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.

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?

/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?

On the advice of Anon I'm moving this query from /adv/ to here... I have £14,000 (~$23,000) in saving and I'd like to invest this. I have been thinking about buying a house to rent out. Any advice on becoming a landlord, or other ways to make this money work for me. I'm in the UK if thats relevent.

Nasty Trailer Lock-down

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: shitty_trailer.jpg]
Hi /diy/. I need your help. Fifty years ago, my grandpa and his brother bought this trailer to leave at the family hunting ranch. It was a nice gesture but today it serves only to endanger visitors. See, It was abandoned years ago, and no one has set foot in it since the early 1990s... the thing is a biohazard. >killer bee colony (no joke) >huge rats >almost certainly venomous snakes >scorpions I *want* to burn it down (seriously, it needs purification by fire), but due to drought conditions, that is not an option for the foreseeable future. In the meantime, I want to put this fucker on lock-down. How do I effectively: >kill the vermin >seal it up Let's try to keep the budget at $80 or less.

Goodday /diy/, I feel pretty stupid right now, but can you tell me how do you call these white things? Or maybe direct me somewhere where I can buy it. It basically just holds the socket in place I guess, but I have trouble finding it.

If I have a table made of stone/fake stone but with a gloss coating, is there an easy way to restore the glossy finish? The table is in my living room and the laptop I'm on right now is on it. So the area where my mouse is has lots of "spidering" (you may be familiar with that term if you are into cars (it refers to lines you can see in the light on the paint)). Pic sort of related because it's probably a similar surface.
