For maintenance purposes, I would like to construct an ultrasound cleaning tank. Preferably an encapsulated ultrasound transducer and generator that could be used in an old solvent cleaning tank which now should not be used. From reading a little about the subject, its application would find a wide use as a clean and environmentally friendly solution in many industrial and domestic applications. Is it feasable and cost effective to build a generator and an encapsulated transducer, and are there any websites to go to to find out more?

Can anyone help me clean my dremel bits? I recently bought a grinding set for my dremel to use on my Traxxas car. After using it on the plastic chassis most of my grinding and sanding bits are covered in plastic. The reason is because the plastic heats up when I use it and the plastic melts onto the grinding stone. I thought of maybe using a lighter to maybe melt the plastic off but it just burnt the plastic and a bit of the stone. It's not that the bits are expensive, I can afford $2 but the gas to go the hardware store is just too much for a couple of bits. I would just use my bike here and there, but it just becomes a hassle go over there every hour. Thanks

Hi, I was given a twin window fan which works just fine but is dirty (dirt and a fair number of ex-gnats). The manual is no help as it says to wipe the exterior with a damp cloth. I thought it would be a simple job to just take out the 12 screws holding the two halves together but unfortunately the off-high-low levers (one on each side) are preventing me from separating the two halves. I can't see any screws holding the lever mechanism in. I tried rotating one side 90 degrees to see if I could slide the lever out through it's slot but it's too fat. I've had other twin window fans with the same set up and never could get them opened up. It annoys me that the manufacturers make it so difficult to clean these fans. I think a fair number of people have this problem and just give up as the local thrift store gets these fans in all the time. I'm thinking of using my dremel with the cutting wheel and somehow slice off the lever knob. It would mean we would have a shorter lever on one side but we can live with that. The lever is kind of wobbly and I'm trying to figure out how to hold it steady without having my fingers so close to the cutting wheel. I know this is a really small problem but it really bugs me that something that should be so easy is difficult.. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

I recently bought a Coffee/expresso maker for my girlfriend from Goodwill for Christmas. It's super cool and professional looking but it's kinda dirty inside. Normally when I'd wanna clean something, I'd run like barsol or laquer-thinner through it because I love high powered solvents, but I also would prefer not to kill my girlfriend. Anyone know of anything I can run through a coffeemaker that isn't toxic but kills germs? They make coffee maker cleaner, but it doesn't seem like it'd kill germs. I was thinking vinegar.

I have seen commercial machines that use compressed air to shoot a stream of dry ice (CO2) pellets or shavings at a dirty, oily machine to clean its surfaces. Unlike sandblasting, the CO2 sublimates (goes from solid to gas without passing through 'liquid') and leaves no residue other than the crud it blasted off. It can even be used on machines or electrical panels that are powered up! But these machines cost multiple $1000s. Anyone have a plan or experience with a DIY version? Thanks.

Maybe someone can figure this out. i have a brick fireplace and burn a lot of nice oak. over time soot builds up. i have a piece of stainless at the back of the fireplace to reflect the heat. this also gets a soot buildup. if i take a small handful of rock salt and throw it into a fire, in just a few minutes the soot on the stainless is gone and it is bright again... i have no idea why this happens...anyone?

Hi people! I have spilled resin (for crafting) over a pair of jeans and now it makes a hard spot where the resin has cured. I think I've ruined the trousers (obviously...) but I've seen someone on another thread saying that to remove epoxy you just have to heat it. But does it work on cured epoxy resin? That has been in the washing machine more than once? Thanks for your answers :)

I have several jars of hair gel which I used once upon a time but I want to find other uses for it . I did hear that you can make it into a paste for putting onto the surface of vinyl records and when it sets you peel it off and it removes fine dust without scratching. Any ideas would be appreciated.

My friend fell into the oacean while at work with his OnePlus One in his pocket. His phone didn't come on after that and he tried the rice trick with the phone intacted (not taken apart). After about 3 days I time apart the phone to find that its covered in salt crystals, I put I back together and it not only vibrated but showed signs if life by flickering the LCD screen. I would like to clean it to see if I would get an even better response from it, so I want to know how best to clean the salt or rust or whatever you want to call it from the components. And if that not possible, will the screen still work if I place it onto my OnePlus One?

I've bought and cut some lengths of mild steel tube to make chimes for a doorbell. Mild steel has a nice ring to it, which is why I bought it instead of aluminium, but it has already started rusting, so I was thinking of tinning the tube before I build the whole thing. My question is mainly how to clean it properly before I tin it. The outside I can do with wire wool but not the inside. I was thinking of just using vinegar to etch away the rust and then give it a good wash before putting it in the tinning solution. Is this likely to work ok? Also any tips on the actual tinning process would be useful. As far as I know you just make up the solution and then put the tube in it for a set amount of time, but I've never done it before, so it would be good to hear from someone who's tried this.

I currently work at a pet-shop, where we're turning over inventory. And guess who gets to inherit the 25 gallon, high-style tank that's been on display for 6 years and was so scummy the manager took one look at it drained and said, 'no way, you've got a new apartment, you take it home'? That's right, me. So now I've got a tank, and I've gotten everything in it cleaned out except for this top edge of what I assume is water scaling. I've been trying to clean it for over two weeks, and gotten desperate enough to even try vim and kitchen cleaner, and it just won't come off. Please, help?

Also posted in Green Category Short Ver: I'm looking for a way to get the paper, foil, glue, and plastic labels off the bits of glass that have been smashed at the recycling center. Or, a cheap (nearly free) resource in KANSAS. Long Story: There are several good uses for recycling glass cullet, the glass is plentiful at the local recycling center, they get very little for it because there isn't a re-user within efficient shipping range. I was looking into buying recycled glass to use in a project, but shipping to get it delivered to KANSAS is outrageous $. I want to start off with glass as the aggregate in concrete countertops. That's a lot of glass - a couple hundred pounds per countertop. Yes, they're very heavy. I've internet searched to my bandwidth limit. No-one nearby does the glass cullet thing. So, I went to the local recycling center and picked up a couple of 5 gallon buckets of smashed glass. Really great. Now, how do I get all the labels off? Thanks, Ruby

We have our car shed roof made from double walled polycarbonate sheets, the problem is that the fabricator at the time of fixing it to the frame forgot to put tape on the holes to avoid dirt getting in. and that time I didn't knew about it, but recently I read this and the dirt has seeped in the holes which are about 7mm square in area. I googled it with various queries but to no avail, Now please help me by giving me some direction and steps to clean it. The dirt is fine sand and some mud which seeped in with rain. I do not want to cut replace or open the sheets just clean them. it has seeped in upto 1.5 feet (roughly half a meter). See the following images, the dirt is just dark areas the rest is just on surface.
