After some dutiful service, my Pittsburgh Pro Flex-Head Ratchet isn’t as tight as it used to be. It still works but you have to hold the head while lining it up on a fastener or else it will flop all over the place. I took it apart to investigate and got an idea for a really quick and easy fix for floppy ratchets. This should work for any flex-head ratchet without detents.
In this video I show how I reduce the noise from electronic toys that my 4 year old roommates receive as gifts. First pass is to just try to get the toys sent to Grandma’s or any other house. When that won’t fly, I resort to this.
To make the fix all it takes is some small screwdrivers, and some felt from a craft store.
While trying to take a dent out of one of the rails on the front of the drawers on my toolbox, I got the idea to see what it would look like with them all removed. I ended up really liking the appearance of the box better without them, and thought I’d share the idea.
In this video I troubleshoot and replace a failed Draft/Induction motor blower assembly on my Goodman high-efficiency furnace. The symptoms were, furnace powers on, buzzes loudly, no air movement, and diagnostic code on circuit board indicating “Pressure Switch Stuck Open”.
I’m not an HVAC professional, but this problem is fairly straightforward to diagnose and complete.
This is a slightly infortainstructional video on how to remove the detent/catch from the US General toolboxes sold at Harbor Freight. I’ve been told this fix actually works for several other brand toolboxes as well. It’d be worth taking one of your drawers out and looking if your tool box drawers seem to stick when pulling them out / pushing them in.
This is a somewhat long winded review and demonstration/test of the California Air Tools 5510SE ultra-quiet oil-less air compressor.
