  • 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.

    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!

  • 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.

  • There is a nest of raccoon's in my garage. What should I do?

    Best answer: Leave them alone and contact a wild life trapper. These creatures may look cute, but they are vicious and carry some diseases like Rabies, Leptospirosis, raccoon roundworm, and giardiasis. All of these can effect humans. Also, most states regulate where trapped animals can be released. Had some in my attic one... show more

Also, most states regulate where trapped animals can be released. Had some in my attic one year and learned A LOT in having them removed. Do not bother with Animal control, they only deal with domestic animals, not wild life.

  • Why do tenants switch bathtub faucet?

    Why do tenants switch bathtub faucet?

    My family rents out our beach house. We have two bathrooms in the house, both with the same bathtub set-up.

    My family rents out our beach house. We have two bathrooms in the house, both with the same bathtub set-up. However, in one bath room only, our tenants keep changing the faucet in the bathtub so the handle is switched. This is the incorrect way to have the handle, and it is not changed in the main bathroom, only the one that is connected to a room. My family has been very confused because almost every tenant has changed the bathtub handle, and to do this you need an allen wrench, which means that somehow it is in the possession of everyone that rents our house. Is there any reason why someone would do this? Even if someone thought it was the wrong way to have the handle (they thought hot and cold should be switched), why would they feel the urge to change it, and not just leave it there as the vacation would only be at most a week. And why would they change it in only one bathroom? I do not know if this is something that happens normally. I know this is an odd question, but if you have had a similar experience or any ideas on why people do this, it would be appreciated if you could share your thoughts. Attached is a picture of the handle design.
