How do i fix this? I dropped it and now the lid isn't aligned with the case

i'm trying to replace the bearings on a frigidaire window air conditioner that was making too much noise. it's about four years old, been in operation for at least three. the problem started after i lightly disassembled it and cleaned it with a hose. since i've never done this before, i can't figure out how or if these bearings come off. at this point i'm already prepared to scrap the entire thing. if it's possible to replace these bearings, i'd like to give it a shot and save some money. is it worth it or is it way too far gone? i'm not even certain i can get it back together properly. it's a Welling YSLA-20-6-0032 drive motor.

Does /diy/ help with bikes too?
2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: shitty light.jpg]
I just moved into my dorm and the lighting is appauling, this shitty fluorescent tube lights the entire room with a crappy yellow tinged light that's right at the top of my peripheral vision. I'm looking at alternatives. The two I've come up with is some clip on light bulb holders with 80W halogens and a shade and LED strip lighting. Could 3m of RGB LED tape facing up provide enough light for the room if I doubled it up (there's enough width on the conduit above the light) and are they adjustable enough to let me produce white light of an arbitrary colour temperature? The room is 3x5m.

What 'productive' things can I do today with things that are around the house without wasting any money?

I want to build something similar to this cat tree. It's going to be an outdoor cat tree for my mother's cats. A few questions: > How much should I expect to pay for materials? > Anything I can add to make it an actual cat tree, not just a bunch of wood? (most indoor cat trees are made of fabric and have scratching posts) > How much would just treating the wood protect it longterm? I like in the UK, it rains 3/4 of the year. Please excuse my ignorance, don't know much about DIY. Thanks in advance.

I've finished the frame/digging out a shelter I'm making. I'm going to fill it out over the next month. But while I do I'd like to start compiling a list of things to get and make a schedule for replenishment/replacement based on shelf life. Obviously canned goods never really go bad so what I will be doing is just rotating. If something serious happens I'll have the older cans to fall back on but frankly I don't want to eat 10 year old canned food if a hurricane drops by in 2023 and only puts me out for a week. I'd appreciate any recommendations for long shelf life products, or really anything else I may be forgetting making a small shelter underground. I chose things that I assume won't start to taste bad quickly after the expiration date. I know that canned green veggies will be "good" in 10 years like any other well canned products but I assume they will taste a lot worse than processed foods. Am I wrong in this assumption? My current list: Hormel Tamales(Personal favorite. Will rotate often, won't keep these for longer than expiry date I don't think. Tomato based product seems like a bad thing to keep for a long time.) Dry pasta/rice(I've heard this takes about 20 years to go bad if stored well. Anyone able to confirm?) Tuna Spam Del Monte fruits Corn Some canned soup, will probably just pick randomly. I haven't eaten canned soup in 10 years so I have no idea what to go for.

Hey /diy/ my girlfriends moving to a new place ,and as we are both students she doesn't have that much money. and since I'm a Industrial Design Student with 3 huge workshops (plastic,wood metal) at my disposal I'm trying to help her out by building some stuff for her. the problem is , I'm really not that great at imagining stuff like forces and static (sorry If I have worded that a bit weird , english is not my first language) right now I'm trying to build her a kitchen counter. I personaly like to work with metal so I tried to build several frames of welded flat iron which will get an actual counter made from multiplex on top and on a lower level to function as storage. I'll upload some pic that hopefully explain my endevour. can you guys tell me wether that stuff will be secure or wether I should get bigger pices of flat iron? 1.pic : one frame element , made from 2,5cm x 0,5cm flat iron

I want to build a PC case but I have no idea how to start. I guess I can draw how I want it to look for a start, but I have no idea about what materials to use, how to make fan holes, etc.

Need Ideas

I have an old gaming chair that my brother recently broke. He literally tore the cords out and took the screws out of the hinges. I don't want to restore it, I just want something to do with it. I might be able to salvage the speakers. Any ideas, /diy/?

What is this??

Hi /diy/, I have this adapter which converts two wires into an RJ11 connecter. What is this thing called? Sorry for the bad picture, but the CW1308 wire comes in from the bottom left corner, then there's a clamping block where the adapter connects to some stripped wire. This then continues up to an RJ11 connector for ADSL. Been looking for weeks, but either can't find the right search terms or am using the wrong words... Anyone know where I can get these things?

Hey /diy/, /tg/ here. I started playing a new tabletop minis game and want to build a tabletop for it. The game plays on a 3' by 3' board and the terrain features are generally sculpted from foam In the past, when I've seen friends make these tables, they've used plywood, particle board of something similar as the base. This unfortunately makes it very hard to transport cause of the weight. If I can, I want to use something really lightweight, but it has to be relatively rigid and sturdy. tl;dr What is a lightweight but rigid material that is not terribly expensive that I can buy in a 3' square?

Just got pic related as a gift from the wife. Have a few questions. 1: There is a part that I'm not sure where it goes or what it does (Not mentioned in owner's manual or in exploded diagram) 2: I'm new to compressors, is this big enough to run pneumatic tools off of? ?Performance: 5.2cfm at 40psi ?Performance: 4.2cfm at 90psi ?Maximum pressure: 115psi If you're looking to get one, she picked this up for $99, MSRP is $199. I'm kind of pissed about the workmanship, had to drill out the brackets to get the axle to fit when attaching the wheels. Pilot holes didn't line up for attaching handle. Sheared off bolt when attaching handle... Missing male quick connector. Anyhow, I'll draw a pic of part.

So, I've got an animation project to work on, but I have no lightbox. I've seen some cheap ones built out of wood, but I'd rather not do something so permanent; This is probably the only time I'll use it. Is there a way to build one of these using common household items and boxes? Thanks for your time

Hey /diy/, I have an XM car receiver, and I want to listen inside my apartment. I was thinking about getting an extra antenna, but then I realized it would be a hassle to move the radio back and forth. What would be the legality of an FM transmitter that went, say, 200 feet? I'm having trouble rooting through the FCC rules.

hey DIY I recently got this old pachinko machine from a friend and the only thing I have to do with it is add a power cord to it (or so it appears) its disgustingly thick with dust and other crap too on the back and probably inside the mechanical parts as well. I'm posting here because I was wondering if anyone knew anything about these things and how to fix everything up to make it look almost like brand new, pic related is a picture I got off ebay, mine is definitely more gross but of the same type. It has some cracked parts that seem to be made out of some hard plastic and the metal in the front other than the handle is really tarnished. I was wondering how to go about polishing the metal and fixing the cracks as well as what to clean it all with.

Not really /diy/, but I figured you`re the only guys who would know this. Thinking about ordering this 60 dollar pendant (60% off right now) on eBay. It's made out of "Sterling Silver". I'm not good with metals at all. Is this a decent metal? It's that or "Pewter" metal but I would really prefer the silver one. When I meant decent, I meant it won't bend or snap, and has a bit of weight to it. Basically: It doesn't feel cheap.

Need a simple, accurate clock pulse chip

6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: WP_TimeSieve_1280x960.jpg]
My brother needs help modding a clock. He wants to add a device that plays a particular sound every hour on the hour. The actual clock is mechanical not digital. I have a working circuit for the speaker and the recorded sound data, but I need some sort of clock pulse to control it. I need a chip that generates an accurate pulse, exactly one pulse an hour with no drift, so I don't want to mess around with something that's programmed by attaching resistors or anything that would introduce ranges of error into the system. For example, I would not build my own RC oscillator circuit for this because of the lack of precision, I want this to be something I can build that my bro never has to open up and adjust for drift. There can be more than one pulse per hour, I suppose I can do some funny stuff cascading flipitty flops etc to change say 100Hz to 1/3600 Hz. If there is some delay through such a circuit, that's fine, drift I care about, not a fixed delay that I could adjust for. My main problem is I'm unfamiliar with this stuff. I google for chips and I have trouble reading all the specifications and telling what is relevant. So is anyone familiar with clock chips, and if so, what kind do you recommend?
