    Replacement part for articulating desk lamp?

    I have an articulating architectural task lamp that is several years old but still works (and was kind of pricey).

    I have an articulating architectural task lamp that is several years old but still works (and was kind of pricey). When tightening the position of the shade/head one day the zinc clamp that holds the head onto the arm broke in half. The knob that attaches/tightens it is still there, I just need the inside part of the joint to hold the 1/2" pin of the lamp head. I don't even know what this is called, and my google searches have come up empty handed. Photo attached to show which part I mean. Any hints to point me in the right direction are appreciated! I really don't want to get rid of this otherwise fully functional lamp. Thanks!

    This will be the 3rd time the tech will be coming out in 4 days. System freezes up. I changed filter and cleaned condenser outside with water very thoroughly. Didn t freeze up for a couple of days but noticed it was working hard to keep it had 74 75 atleast. Would not shut off. Tech came out and added 2 lbs refrigerant to system and left. Froze up that night and thawed it out. Came out next day and hooked up gauge and said the readings were perfect for the ambient temp outside. Turned it on after letting it thaw out for almost 24 hours with fan only. Ran great and started freezing again over night at 72. Turned it up to 74 and stopped for bit and then later began to freeze. Turned up to 76. Again stopped then later froze. but still blew somewhat cool air.

  • What should I do about an old push lawnmower that needs a new wheel?

    Best answer: First off, you said the mower is self-propelled. Is the broken wheel one of the drive wheels? If so, that complicates removal and finding a replacement. If the wheel is just a free-spinning type, you need to get that bolt loose. There's no special magic that the repair person can do. You need the correct... show more
    Best answer: First off, you said the mower is self-propelled. Is the broken wheel one of the drive wheels? If so, that complicates removal and finding a replacement. If the wheel is just a free-spinning type, you need to get that bolt loose. There's no special magic that the repair person can do. You need the correct sized wrench...preferably a 6-point socket and a long handle. Slip a pipe over the handle to extend the leverage. Then apply some Liquid Wrench to the threads and go at it. Heat the nut with a propane torch if that doesn't work. The one thing to be careful of is applying too much force. If you can see the threads going into or through the nut, keep an eye on it. If the wrench moves but the threads don't, you're in danger of snapping the bolt.

    I'm a firm believer in fixing broken stuff. My lawn tractor is 27 yrs old and I've made a lot of repairs along the way...but there eventually comes a time. Frankly, if you can't make this repair yourself on the cheap, it's probably time for a new mower.

  • Why won t my power come back on after a storm? Everyone else has power by now. (In a manufactured home).?

    Best answer: Check your breakers first. If that isn't the issue, ask the power company to check the lines to your meter.
    It is possible that their wiring is damaged somewhere between where the feed to your home separated from everything else and where it actually connects to your home.

Have it set on 76 in Tampa area fyi. It gets to 78 and stays there for hours till the sun goes down. They installed a 2 ton Rheem full system but used existing duct (said it was good). Now 8 months later they say it won t keep up because I need new ducts... Any idea if I m getting scammed or does duct work just go to crap in 8 months.

  • Why do windows and doors get boarded up when a building is being renovated?

    Currently in my city, they are renovating an old elementary school into a education center for students that don't succeed in a traditional school setting. ALL of the windows of the school are boarded up, as are the doors. it happened when a new company bought an empty store as well.
