Handy-Man Corner

I'm tired of bad Chiefs news.....


I thought it would be a good idea for a thread on the Handy-Man.

Do you have any Home remedies, gadgets you've made, advice on car repair, home maint, sollutions to kill weeds in your yard, bugs in your garden?

Use Coke to clean your batteries? That type of stuff.
Home made floor dry?

Is there a brand or manufacturer on it? They look to be in absolutely pristine condition.

That's what I wondered. If it's been around for long, brass will almost always have some corrosion on it. It looks too clean

I'm going to have a pretty....major project coming up.

I'm going to be interested in some items and if things work out, I might try to do some business through here instead of the big boxes.

I might need a little assistance from someone with some home design layout know-how. If you're a hardwood floor distributor or installer....maybe a stone mason, pm me with some details of what you have if you're interested in trying to do some business.

I've done business with a handful of CP folks and have had good luck every time.

It's ok. I'll spend this money somewhere else.



Recently, I've been doing some treasure hunting and selling.
Many of the items are old and rusted and I was exploring ways to clean them up without damaging the items.

The same process works to clean rusted tools, stiff pliers, hinges etc.
So, here is your handy man tip.

Electrolysis for Rust Removal.
Basically, Take a rubber tote or a bucket. Fill with the appropriate gallons of water. Add 1 table spoon of soda washing bubbles or baking soda for each gallon.
Insert a "donor metal" rod on one end(or construct a device with several) that goes to the bottom of the holding tank.
Take the positive clamp of a common battery charger and clamp it onto the donor metal, above the water line. Clamp the negative to your rusted item and place it in the water(NOT touching the donor rod). Let the charger do it's magic. This is a "line of site" process and you'll have to flip each side and run as long as over night.

The bubbles released in the process are O2 and Hydrogen, so only do it in a well vented area without an open flame.
*do not use stainless steel for your donor metal unless you want toxic sludge water.

There will be some black crusty iron on the item that you'll want to brush off with a wire brush, and when it's dry, spray it with a coat of oil or wd40.

I've used it, and it will make old rusted bolts work, old pliers feel like new.

To see it Look here.




I've been using the bucket method but am going to switch to something like

kenmore freezer model 198.8101512 wiring manual

Does red and white wire coming off the compressor hook into the jack that connects to the thermostat? Both wires in the same pin jack? The other jack is the black.

This is coming off the power cord to the thermostat jacks.

I have a smoke detector wired into the ceiling in one room. It started chirping so I changed the battery, but it continues chirping. It's not the battery, the battery is good. I actually unplugged the detector itself from the wire connector and the chirping is coming from above the electrical box that's in the ceiling. All I can see is wires coming through the box. Does anyone know what would be causing the chirping (aside from psychosis). I went in the attic to see if maybe there was one up there that I was hearing but I don't see anything.

There has to be another smoke detector elsewhere. - You're in Texas so your furnace is probably in the attic. By code, they'll be required to install a smoke detector up there. You just haven't looked hard enough.

I'm looking to put down a weed barrier between my garage and the property line and cover it with rock. What is the best weed barrier? I have some 9 mil plastic. Would that work?

I'm not much of a landscaper. I can grow the **** out of grass, but yeah, landscape is a different story.

Plastic would work for a minute and then break down. You want landscaping cloth. Everybody has it.

9 mil plastic? I've kept grain in it for over a year. And don't those environmental wackjobs say plastic never breaks down?



EDIT: I'm concerned about cloth because it inherintly has holes for nasty shit to poke through. I'm tired of trying to spray it down because my neighbor has his garden just over the fence. I'm eventually going to **** up.

Plus the price is right on this stuff.

Yes, it eventually develops far more holes than quality landscape cloth.
