comment We have used Filter sand for construction , Is there a problem in this sand?
I used filter sand, which is a high silica sand with very round particles, the cement ended up being very flaky since there was not a good bond to the sand particles. i definitely think, if your sand is the same it will affect the strength

comment Does this washing machine drum look good?
those swelling seams definitely don't look 100%, but you could check if they are wet after a load, my gut says its a hose fitting or a dirty overflow. the cement filled thing looks normal, its either filled to act as a counter weight, or just to make the inside of the drum feel more solid.

comment Is it good to use a water based primer with oil based enamel on metal
Did a little more research, As long as the primer is compatible with the enamel paint, its no more or less effective. the problem comes with incompatible paints and primers with acids have been used to etch the metal (ie Etch primer)

comment How do I drill into an existing galvanized fence post?
I would also add that you need to ensure that your drill bit it sharp and that the drill edge is well centred, there are different cutting patterns for differing applications, and when you diy sharpen drill bits, you may get an offset cutting edge, trying to drill in one specific spot is then a challenge!
