  • 5 Ways to Remove a Stripped Screw

    One way that works for me every time no matter if it is a screw or a bolt I bust our my welder and weld my husky screw driver to the screw. Then I turn it loose. No way that screw is ever going to strip out when welded to the screw driver. LOLThe great thing about that is Home Depot will always exchange your broken husky screwdriver no matter what you did to it. It is crazy

  • DIY: Lithium Battery To NiCd Power Tool (With Simple Adapter)

    let's see there are really only 2 tools sets out there that still use the old NiCd batteries Ryboi and Dewalt. Ryboi new ion batteries will fit in the old tools so what the point in making one for that.Then you have dewalt they sell a converter that does this. The converter is around $35-$40 depending on your store then you have to buy the 20v max batteries and charger or you spend about $150 where you get the converter charger and 2 batteries. - - - now I know what you are thing you cannot put a 20v battery into an 18v drill normally that is true. But you have to look at the fine print there. The battery tells you it is a 20v MAX. What that MAX means the initial(when you pull the trigger) voltage will be 20v then it will drop down and lvl off at 18v. Sorry guys if you bought the dewal...see more »let's see there are really only 2 tools sets out there that still use the old NiCd batteries Ryboi and Dewalt.

Sorry guys if you bought the dewalt 20v max system and were thinking you were getting more powerful tool. You are not it has the same motor as the 18v do. With these two tool sets that are really the only ones that are still selling NiCd batteries and everyone else runs on ion batteries. And these two compainies sell a reasonably priced converters I really don't see the point in trying to make this converter. And NEVER MIX CHARGERS NiCd charge differently then ion batteries. Unless you want to see your rechargeable battery look like last years hover boards DONT DO IT. You can cause a fire or explosion. At that point you and your family can be killed. Not to mention that your house can burn to the ground.

  • Solar Cooked Wild Mackerel on the Rocks

    No votes for meI thought this was going to teach us how to make a solar cooker. Not how to catch a fish. And cook it with some $300 item. If I wanted to do that I would bring a small propane grill.

  • A Guide for Buying LED's on E Bay ---- Part TWO

    yep I sell theses at Home Depot for just under $11I also sell a 12 pack for just under $40

    So I work at Home Depot in the electrical department and sell LED lights every day I was expecting a different type of artical out of this with some really useful information. I even read your first artical and did not see the really useful information that everyone need The big 5 points when buying a light you need to know are1 - How many lumens does it produce. The measure of a lumen is a static value and one lumen is about the same amount of light that a 1 wick plan was candle will produce A good reffence is350-500 is about 40w incandescent 500-850 is 60w900-1000 is 75w1100 to 1500 is 95w flood light1600 - 1800 is 100w2 - how many hours does the led last for. There are some that will last 50k hours which on an avg use of 3h a day will last you 22 years some are shorter around 30...see more »So I work at Home Depot in the electrical department and sell LED lights every day I was expecting a different type of artical out of this with some really useful information.

There are some that will last 50k hours which on an avg use of 3h a day will last you 22 years some are shorter around 30k which is about 13 years 3 - color. Color is measured in degrees of kelvin 2700 is the same as an incandescent where 5000 is about the same color as the sun light coming into your house when your window blinds are open. Most women like using the 5000k lights in the bathroom. Because their makeup will look the same in the office, outside, or in a store as all of these places have the just about 5000k light. The 5000k light is also called daylight on the package. The 2700k light is called softwhite. I suggest not putting daylight in your bedrooms as that light will wake you up when you are trying to go to bed. 4 - power use. We want to save money right. Well look at how much power each led uses. Most LEDs use about 10% of what an incandescent uses. Which in return means they produce only 10% of the heat. In the summer time this is great because this means your AC unit will not have to cool down the heat your lights are making.5 - base size in the USA we have 3 standard base sizes. But there are many more around the world so when buying your lights on eBay make sure you are getting a the right base size.I hopes this helps you all out more then this artical did.
