Hey /diy/, first time posting here, I'm kind of excited.
I moved into an old house a couple weeks ago, and I'm trying to replace the faucet in the bathroom. The cold water shut-off valve turned off without any issues, but the hot water valve won't even budge. I tapped a couple times with a hammer to attempt to loosen a jam, but that didn't seem to do anything. I unscrewed the handle to try and get direct access to the underlying shaft, thinking I could just grab that with a set of pliers... turns out this thing is plastic, and I'm now very worried about it either shattering or stripping.

I'm starting up woodworking, and I can definitely see how it could be an enjoyable hobby. Only thing is, I really suck at it. I'm coming from some experience in machining (mill/lathe with metal), where everything is measured and exact. This sure is different, and I'm trying to make a wood bow as my first project. Simple things, but I seem to suck at eye-balling things. I suppose that's why they say this is a skill. I seem to start it off by fucking up and working from there on out to make it 'as good as I can get it'. Tools I'm using so far are a surform, belt sander (stationary w/ disk), and skilsaw.
Question is; is there anything that I can do to not suck, or does it come down to practice? Suggested readings/websites?

Guise, I'm a videofag
I need a texting simulator that isn't just a static picture. It has to be one that looks as though messages are being sent and received (as in loading icon, new messages appear, etc) for a video project I'm working on.
Anybody know where I can get this done? A pre-made simulator would be ideal, as they're the quickest, rather than making the simulation which will last for, maybe 10 seconds.
FOOD TRUCK IDEAS NEEDED

/DIY/nosaurs, I need help. early in the day I had the idea about starting a BBQ food truck. Risky business venture, I know. I live near Portland OR and there are food trucks literally EVERYWHERE. Not a single one of them BBQ. I can make a mean pulled pork that can go on essentially any piece of bread you like, and I am no stranger to a tri-tip. I have also experience with making my own BBQ sauces and marinades. and I have some experiences running a business. My problem is, I don't have A lot of start-up capital to buy a food truck out right (even most second hand). I am not a big fan of Loans from big banks (not against, just not a fan). I need a cheap idea for a food truck that won't cost a lot *NOTE: I am also quite handy* PLEASE HELP!!!
