The parts list shows M1 Blade Guard and Linkage EV3BSM1 1 M2 Blade Guard Release Lever EV3BSM2 1 From which I deduce that Wayfaring Stranger's comment is a good one to follow up. Your saw has a locking lever for the blade guard. The User Guide also shows 2. Blade Guard Locking Lever So maybe that lever is jammed/clogged or not in the position ...

Freezers are not really designed to freeze things (at least not an entire freezer full of unfrozen things), they're designed to keep things frozen. They're also designed to work with stuff in them, and will likely not be as effective when empty. From your question, it sounds like you're running an empty freezer, and waiting for it to get cold. This will ...

I solved the same problem by with t-nuts. Embed the t-nuts into the stud, or in my case a wooden brace between the studs. Then attach the bracket to the t-nut with a machine bolt. I've screwed and unscrewed the bolt repeatedly but because it is metal-to-metal it does not compromise the wood and thus does not wobble. (I agree this question is different ...

new-work Halo cans are adjustable to accommodate different ceiling height. Remove the reflector trim and the lamp. Then remove the three sheet metal screws from near the bottom of the can. Slowly work the can down and out. There is enough slack in the jacketed cable to let the can hang about six inches below the ceiling. Reach through the hole and unclip ...

Replace it. There is nothing to "lubricate" (it's already full of oil) and if there was it would not increase resistance. You have some sort of failure in the valving/orifices that restrict the flow of the oil inside the cylinder and convert motion to heat. They are more directly analogous to shock absorbers (as on your car) than "hydraulic cylinders" and ...

I'd drill the existing screw head off, use a bit slightly larger than the shaft of the screw but smaller than the hole in the knob. The stripped out screw should keep the bit fairly centered even when used at a slight angle. Once each head is removed you can pull the knob and try a screw extractor on what's left, but there's a good chance you'll need to ...

What you should have done, and should start by doing, is check whether this lockset will let you remove the inner knob. Cheaper ones often won't, but more expensive ones will have the same kind of release as on the outer knob -- rotate the thumbturn to the unlocked position, depress the rectangular catch below the knob shaft's surface, and pull the knob off. ...

The Evolution Rage 3 has a three-part hinged mechanism that pushes the lower blade guard clear. One part of this mechanism was bent out of shape, and straightening it fixed the problem.

When using Oxalic acid, which usually comes in a dry crystal form, mix it with hot water, as hot as you dare, reading the labels for mix ratios. I mix it a bit stronger than they say, but that is me, I do stuff like that. You are new to this I don't recommend you do that, stick to the directions. While the mix is hot, pour it on the floor the same way the ...

This is just a guess because you don't have a lot of info but I am guessing your freezer plug was never undone and that you have some ice build up causing the freezing overall. I would unplug, open freezer, take out defrost plug, and leave sit for a day or two. Put drain plug back in, shut the door, and see if it freezes.

Even if you offered me the plastic brackets to install so I could cheat and run away, I might encourage you to use something METAL that you won't call me back for, breaking again. For these types or repairs I don't bother to find the original plastic hardware. Any hardware store will have what will fix this for the life of the cabinet: (amazon.com) ...

Given "I drained the whole system" I'd suspect a trapped air bubble first and foremost. Try bleeding again. The bubble may be trapped in the pipe rather than the radiator itself - look for bleeders along the pipes. Alternatively there may be a valve you've missed, or an actual bit of debris plugging the radiator (a pretty distant third place, in my ...

Frankly, replacing one horizontal run like that probably isn't worth the effort, unless there will be lots of rain in the future. It may well be sufficient to strip, putty the gaps, caulk the edges, and paint. Otherwise, you'll have to replace the siding panel. Remove the bench and wall. Remove the siding, and renew. The tools and materials are ...

Posting this for continuity, the results. I actually had an open hot on one leg or branch of the breaker box, that much I knew. Here is how I found out, and what I did. OK, so I finally got the old lady to rest long enough to unplug all the breakers (physically removed from breaker box). Still had low voltage on one breaker bar. We have a master breaker ...
