  • If I need to break a window, would covering it up with a curtain prevent me from doing so?

    I need to break an old window glass out of its frame. To avoid getting injured, I'm thinking of placing a curtain or towel over it, then smack it with a hammer. Would the curtain/towel get int he way of the hammer, preventing me from being able to break the window by softening the blows?

  • How do you avoid hitting pipes when drilling into drywall?

    I want to hang a towel rack in my bathroom. I want to hang it above the toilet. I have a magnetic stud finder I don't trust. It is attracted to the entire wall behind the toilet. Does that mean there are pipes there? How do I avoid hitting pipes and/or anything electrical?

    Help me chose a backup GENERATOR please.. I live in SW Florida where needless to say we have power outages sometimes. The last hurricane knocked out power for over 2 weeks. I want to be prepared for the next one. I have a 3 BR house where just I and my wife live. I have looked into those generac stationary units and just can’t afford one right now. My question is what would be the best portable generator? And what brand is the best? I don’t need to power the whole house. Here is what I want it to run. A 15,000 BTU 115-volt window A/C. A refrigerator, a small chest freezer, electric oven, TV, 2 fans, 2 lamps. I would also like to have one of those generator outlet things installed in my breaker box. Anyone know what they are called? How much it will cost?. Also what kind of power should I get? I mean there are Gas,propane,diesel powered generators. Which is best? And any suggestions on how to store fuel would be greatly appreciated as well. Trying to get gas after a hurricane is like black Friday x 100!!! And if any S-A says “Move” I’ve already tried that, the wife won’t have it! LOL Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

    Just bought a house, the shower is just a stand up shower. Everything in the house has clearly been done half assed, as cheep as possible by a not so grate do it yourselfer. The showers been leaking from inside the pipe, back past where the shower head hooks up. Went to try to adjust the shower head to spray lower and it snapped inside the wall. (Minimal leaking got water turned off right away) I figured it seems pretty simple to get the cheep paneling off and take a look inside. Going to attempt that tomrrow. Wondering what I am up aginst though. Have looked up pics and how to s and seems possible it s just something come lose, but also possible it s broken and might be a bit more work. My partner and I are fairly handy and quick learners so thinking we can fix it on our own. Just looking for opinions on what we will bbe w up against and possible fixes? I m sure I didn t have to ask and once we get in there I will have a better idea. But it s driving me crazy laying here and thinking about it. I just want to go look at it now. Keep in mind it s likely done with the cheapest parts you can get at your local generic handy man store, right next to the wpod paneling. Thankyou ahead for any input!

    If you wet an envelope (for crafting purposes in this case) and the seal gets wet, can you reuse the seal if you allow it to dry without touching anything or is the seal then useless?

    What do you call this part of the door frame?

    Best answer: On external doors it is usual for the door stop (which is what this is) to be worked out of the solid frame section, at both the jamb and the head, so it may not be a separate part. So what you are looking at is all part of the frame that has rotted by taking up water through the end grain. The difficult part is removing the wrap so that you can reuse it, but most repairs I see of these sacrifice the first 6 inches or so of wrap, usually on both sides of the opening. The threshold is almost certainly fitted in the factory so that adds to the fun as that may be screwed up into the frame. Sheila gives some excellent links that should help.
