If the bottom of the jamb is loose, shim behind it and fasten with a long screw. (Use the gap of the door to set the amount of shimming. If the screw draws the jamb in too much, back the screw out and push the shims in further.) Then, get a chunk of wood matching the jamb. I'm guessing 4-1/2" x 3/4" thick, by a few inches tall. Cut the new piece ...

If you're drilling within about an inch of a corner, then the drywaller may have put a corner bead there to protect it from damage. A corner bead is installed over drywall (and then covered over with mud and/or texture), so if you're hitting metal within the first eighth inch of drilling, that's probably it. I've been hitting metal around all of my windows; ...

Cover wood sill with red guard or equivalent. Install concrete board over sill; going through the trouble of getting it to slope slightly towards shower by building up mortar under it is not a bad idea. Do not red guard the cement board so the thinset has a good rough surface to adhere to. Install tile sloped towards shower by building up thinset on back ...

Use your subway tiles, just use two instead of one. Cut them so you split the difference on the width so they are the same size, rather than using a full tile and a cut strip.

First, make sure the rough sill slopes toward the shower. Measure it with a level; if it's not appropriately sloped, build it up with more mortar to create the requisite slope. Then, once you've painted all that cementboard with RedGard, the whole assembly should already be waterproof. Just tile over RedGard on the sill however you like. Any water that gets ...

I would use a hydraulic, similar to what is found on a door. One like the one linked below has a small button you push to set it, and then to release you just relieve the pressure from the hydraulic and it will come down.. Amazon - Hardware Door Closer Hydraulic

As an alternative, you could consider what I've done. My desk at the office is electric (I found a good source for electric desks at economical prices and we have several of them). But at home, I raised my entire desk up on blocks so it is at standing height, then got a "drafting stool" style of chair--basically an office chair with a longer gas tube and a ...

The device you're describing, sounds like a four-bar linkage. Not sure if you'll be able to find one available that suits your needs, or if you'll have to manufacture it yourself, or if it's even the best design for what you're trying to accomplish. But hopefully that will help you find what you're looking for.

Actually every electric device has a argument which is effectiveness.It represent the ability of the device can transfer a power to another(eg. mechanic power or DC),so as this adapter.If you need the effectiveness of this adapter,you should measure the INPUT and OUTPUT at the same time,and use theP=U*Iand E=Pout/Pinformula.At last ,utilize the E and the ...

Power adapters convert the electricity from one voltage to another voltage, and sometimes between AC and DC. The quick answer to your question is to multiply the INPUT voltage by the INPUT current. In this case, you likely have 120 V input (if you're in the United States). So, the MAXIMUM power would be 120*0.24 = 29 W, though the actual power usage is ...
