I enjoy undertaking light electronic repairs, i.e. replacing laptop batteries, brackets, hard drives and the like, but I've recently had to remap the 'o' key on my old Macbook due to an irreversible short circuit and it turns out the sole proper solution is replacing the entire keyboard outright. Merely scrolling through this guide is enough to give me a headache:

i fixed my toilet - cistern was taking literally hours to refill. i think there's a limescale buildup on the inlet valve so it was sticking shut.

koogs, Thursday, 9 April 2020 15:37 (one year ago) link

the toilet was also my most recent repair. the little rubber thing that sits at the top of the vertical tube thing had gotten all messed up, and as a result it was doing the thing where the toilet is always "filling up", because it couldn't detect when it had hit the upper water limit. very annoying! fixed it with twine tbh

i also recently repaired my toilet. it had been making noise for longer than i care to admit.

my 14' telescoping pole saw was stuck at full extension, but I fixed it by C-clamping it to our deck rail, spraying the locked-up part with WD-40, and wrestling it loose with channel-lock pliers

any day I repair a thing is a good day

When my Simplyhuman pedal bin stopped working (the plastic hinges broke through wear and tear) rather than buying a new one I sliced some wine bottle cork and superglued it into the hinge. it worked a treat and the hinge is good as new.

i need to repair my sheepskin slippers that i have had for probably around 12 years, there is a hole coming through from my big toenail. i think some kindof linen thread darning, but it will have to look nice, and i don't have any linen thread, although I was wondering if a weft from some line fabric would work. probably not, but possibly if I wound three together?

calzino, Thursday, 9 April 2020 16:25 (one year ago) link

Man I love "fixing" things (or modifying, I guess, for things that aren't technically broken). I've rebuilt every bicycle and rewired every single guitar I've owned to some degree, swapped out a fried diode on guitar amp, switched out resistors on a 1979 Princeton Reverb to make the tremolo crazier and swapped out a potentiometer while I was in there, fixed laptops and chairs and cars and parts of houses and so on. I'm not necessarily great at it but it's so incredibly satisfying.

Our dryer stopped heating a few weeks ago and I got a new heating element and set of thermal fuses and thermostats to fix it, as well as a new belt and belt roller to replace while I'm in there. I've been sick so I haven't gotten around to it yet but for like $50 and maybe two hours of work it'll work again vs. several hundred dollars to have it repaired.

how would you rerepair an acoustic guitar where the bridge is starting to peel away from the body of the guitar? is there a correct glue to use, does it need to be properly peeled off and glued all together?

plax (ico), Thursday, 9 April 2020 16:54 (one year ago) link

Luthiers tend to use animal glues, IIRC. There are repair kits available online, that have a purpose-made clamp. Do check underneath to see if there are loose fittings - it might not be simply a glue issue.

THought I'd messed up my sewing machine for a while a coupl eof days ago. Wound up taking part so fi t apart that I hadn't done before.
Wound up with the handwheel getting really stiff which had me wthinking I'd damaged something nastily.
Had another go at it the next day and got it back working and it seems to be working pretty smoothly.
& now I know there is a section under the bobbin case/needleplate area that I have access to and had a lot of lint in and bent pins and things and gear wheels and things taht had a load of gunk on them.

Probably needs a service, probably has done fora while . Could do with learning how to do that .
Especially if thisicurrent situation drags out.
Have wanted to for a while anyway.

BUt now hjave 2 new pairs of trousers. & I think I need to learn to actually draft rather than just customise clones.
SDhould be doing real bespoke jeans in like one go instead of several fittngs.

& now I know there is a section under the bobbin case/needleplate area that I have access to and had a lot of lint in and bent pins and things and gear wheels and things taht had a load of gunk on them.

yes! that section! removing the gunk from that area is often the problem w/r/t sewing machine problems.

re: plax's slippers -- my thought would be to pad/patch from the inside with sturdy materials privileged over aesthetic, and then join that to the exterior to make that look nice -- could maybe do a double layer to reinforce?

Thinking about doing my first oil change -- OOH, my honda is approaching the needs service mark, OTOH I'm barely driving it so it could be a while before it actually gets there

i made my dad teach me when i was like 19. i like doing things myself but he tried to convince me it wasn't worth it and he was right. you have to have a place to take the oil to, also, don't you?

forensic plumber (harbl), Thursday, 9 April 2020 22:46 (one year ago) link

I used to change the oil myself, but then I bought a new car (my current VW Golf) that requires expensive synthetic oil in a weight so rare that Pep Boys didn't stock it until recently. Since buying my own oil + filter cost almost as much as paying someone else to do it, it became pointless DIYing this. I've done only the most basic of maintenance on this car myself - rotating the tires, changing the wipers, adding fluids, changing light bulbs.

Lee626, Thursday, 9 April 2020 23:10 (one year ago) link

I’ve never learned what the oil does, or why you need to change it.

When you have a big long shaft-like thing repeatedly sliding in & out of a receptacle sleeve, you need proper lubrication to prevent discomfort and damage.

silby, Friday, 10 April 2020 02:29 (one year ago) link

That's how I changed the oil in my first car. Enough of it would leak through the dry-rotted gaskets (from sitting in my grampa's garage too long), burning out the tail pipe. I just had to dump a quart of it in every month or so.

But yeah, I don't change the oil in my cars anymore myself either.

But I did fix these nice vertical blinds we have the other day! One of the little plastic rider/worm screw assemblies got jammed. I pulled it all apart and fixed it. Feels nice.

Mostly I appreciate that my previous house owner was a completely crazy fixer, making a giant welded cast-iron i-beam workbench I still use. He was also a dangerously incompetent electrician, but the house is still standing,

fajita seas, Friday, 10 April 2020 03:24 (one year ago) link

That's how you changed the oil in old "foreign" cars with two-stroke engines - just pour a small amount of oil in with the gasoline/petrol. Some small engines that power lawn mowers or chainsaws still work like that.

I am good at electrics but wish I could do plumbing. I don’t know if it counts as repairs but I am pretty pleased with myself for putting a sensor and timer on the hall light so it comes on when we come through the front door.

Embarrassed that I had to get a guy out to fix the dishwasher and it turned out to be a blocked waste pipe.

Not a sparky, but I’ve been doing electrical stuff for years at work ( I even had a guy working for me for a bit that sat on the committee that writes the wiring rules for Australia). I get electricity and I can stay safe with electricity, with plumbing and water I just don’t have the same intuition. I really want to put an outdoor tap on the deck on the water line that feeds the boiler, but I don’t even know where to start.

dishwashers are a lost cause often. I had a dishwasher that broke my heart repeatedly. i had to replace the same seal on it over and over again.

plax (ico), Friday, 10 April 2020 19:32 (one year ago) link

the rollers on the drawers had corroded, meaning the drawers no longer lined up properly and thus new seals got busted after only maybe a month of use. I eventually got rid of it. my current dishwasher is great!

plax (ico), Friday, 10 April 2020 19:33 (one year ago) link

"I even had a guy working for me for a bit that sat on the committee that writes the wiring rules for Australia"

as an ex-sparkie I've met plenty of these reg-worm types who can accurately quote amendment 1 section 274 blah blah.. but they are basically incapable of doing the most basic electrical installation work! You are right about plumbing though, it's much harder than it looks.

calzino, Friday, 10 April 2020 20:15 (one year ago) link

I was hearing a few stories about people's attempts at attaching bidet hoses on podcasts a couple of weeks ago. People thinking they would be able to do it withouit hassle and then finding the attachments didn't seal properly or something similar.

Would be a good skill to have though. Plumbing like. Always useful.

Stevolende, Friday, 10 April 2020 20:29 (one year ago) link

there is no amount of pro-tips/online guides that is a substitute for the skills you attain doing the same shit every day.

calzino, Friday, 10 April 2020 20:38 (one year ago) link

I've worked at a few companies that had a mechanical side as well as electric but never talked seriously with plumbers. It took me years to realise you turn both the taps off where the silver flexi pipe connects the boiler with the water main when you need to add water because of low pressure fault. I'd just turn the secondary tap off where it connects to the boiler so it was slowly adding extra pressure to the boiler! I'm a fucking idiot though.

calzino, Friday, 10 April 2020 21:13 (one year ago) link

I remember having a big existential crisis about calling a plumber to seat a toilet - I’d done it once or twice but always fucked up the wax ring in the process and I didn’t want to worry about it leaking. But it’s such a straightforward thing that I felt like a sucker hiring someone to do it for me.

The plumber was a youngish guy and we talked for a while and it was cool - he told that he’d installed hundreds of toilets and me paying $100 for the peace of mind was totally worth it, and that he had no idea how to do my job and had no shame about that. It made me much more comfortable deciding what I was comfortable with and what I wanted to entrust to experts.

joygoat, Friday, 10 April 2020 21:21 (one year ago) link

I'm shit around the house but primed and painted the box around the gas meter and laid some matting (all in the porch) and goddamn I feel good. Also bought myself a laplander saw with no real idea what I'm going to do with it.

My old man was a gas fitter and plumber, the father-in-law was all manner of shit: made ship's lanterns, fitted out gas tanks, carpet fitter. I'm generally in awe of tradesmen.

Currently fixing not being pissed.

if you ever wanted to bang some extra sockets in a stud wall with fast fix boxes your laplander saw is your friend. When I was in the game we called them "pad saws" but there is a lot of different names for that particular tool.

Is it possible I’ve got 1” drywall in my ca 1950 Southern California house? Trying to patch holes and the existing drywall seems extremely thick. I thought 1/2 or 5/8” was standard? Could it be two 1/2” sheets? This is ceiling and interior wall.

𝔠𝔞𝔢𝔨 (caek), Sunday, 14 November 2021 22:11 (two months ago) link

Never heard of 1" drywall, but with older houses, anything goes. Our house is from 1928 and when we gutted our bathroom years ago, you could see the label on the back of the adjoining walls and it had a label with the year 1928. Our contractor could not believe there was drywall that old.

Yikes, wet and wild.

We had to have a cartridge replaced in our shower (which is a bitch because of how the screws on the shower body have to be screwed in). The plumber recently did it wrong and it failed several days later when my wife turned the shower on. Luckily she hadn't stepped in yet, because it blew the entire handle and cartridge off the body and a firehose of scalding hot water shot everywhere. I had to fly down to the basement to shut off the main.

Lubricated the street door cos I'd noticed it was sticking again. Seems rlike it's not getting done apart from by me. Surprised it's lasted a yearand a bit if so.& idiot next door is still going to the mindless bother of lining up latch handle so it looks like door locked when it isn't. Noticed that as soon as they started but douche anyway.

Finally fixed laser lens on cd player last week. Found out how to remove case and wiped out the cradles. Plugged in the player and saw how a cd was picked up for play. Tried using a disc cleaner but it read as No Disc then wound up taking a qtip with isopropyl alcohol and wiping the lens then clearing off excess with the other end of the stick cotton wool.
Nothing much in the unit otherwise. Did think there might be 15 years worth of dust accumulating. But no, a couple of long hairs but otherwise no.
Did find laser has a shutter that I hadn't anticipated so maybe cleaning disc just not getting to it.
Anyway playing ok now. Not skipping discs either.
Biggest chore was getting to plug and moving the unit. Probably not been moved in a decade. Plus I had a pile of boxes trapping the plug that I had to move then put back.
So got music now.
