Refills for Reed Diffusers

My girlfriend buys reed diffusers from a company called West Elm for about twenty bucks apiece. When the scented oil eventually evaporates, she buys a complete new diffuser because the company does not sell refills. It would be great (and economical!) to be able to make our own scented oils to refill the bottles. I have seen cooking recipes on Instructables so maybe someone out there has a recipe for making scented oils. Thanks!

Ball point pens

Does anyone have any ideas about refilling a favourite ballpoint pen with ink? I have thought about using a syringe, but the ink is too thin. Before anyone asks, I can't just buy a replacement refill for the pen as they stopped making them.

refill glade type plug in scent devices

I posted this someplace i thought, i looked at home forums and other forums everything seemed to be from 4 to 8 years old.  i even saw a poster referring to a resources forum that i couldn't find.  I am signed in as Pro,so i should have access, just strange, i must be doing something wrong. however my question is hw to make a solution to refill the glass bottled plug ins.  i actually prefer the soy based cubes that  are scented when melted t, but they use a 40 watt bulf, wish i could finf a hot led build to heat the soy.  i want to stay away from tea candles and fire, i don have a fire place , or fire pit yet.

Ink pen refill...what type of ink to use?

Alright, alright, so I did read some older forums regarding a similar issue, however after attempting some of the suggestions noted on there, I encountered some problems... I am addicted to my Uni-Ball Signo Rt Gel pens (.38) - yeah, that's right - they are freakin' awesome! The problem is that I write the hell out of them, and the refills cost 6 cents cheaper than the pens (which aren't cheap either). So, yeah, I did hunt down my dusty inkjet refill kit, and slip that tiny syringe into my empty cartridge, and successfully loaded it with some ink. My excitement soon dissipated as I began writing... the old .38 writing that it used to have turned into a fatty rolling ball writing the bleed through all of my class notes (just putting out too much). It's obvious that I am simply not using the right type of ink. It seems like it might not be viscous enough? I knew it probably wouldn't work the first time, but seeing how I was able to actually 'refill' the pen myself, there MUST be some ink out there that will bring my pen back to life! Any info on the right type of ink would be great! Thanks ~ pete

Stratasys hack, legal??

Hi , I  think of making an instructable about how to hack  3D printer cartridges, so they can easily be refilled with cheap material. I got an old Stratasys Dimension BST 3D printer from 2005 or something and these printers need chip protected filament cartridges to operate- and these cartridges are quite expensive (~200$ per kg filament...) There is a way to hack these cartridges using a small arduino based programmer to refill them with generic ABS and HIPS, each about 20$ per kg. So its 200$ vs. 20$ , and 15 minutes of work. And I would like to make a small instructable about how to do that. But I don`t know whether this is legal. My question: whats the policy of Instructables here? And if Stratasys starts legal action (I seriously doubt that, because the printers are out of production) who is liable, would that be me or Instructables?

What lubricant to refill a fridge compressor with?

Hey all, I just grabbed a compressor from a fridge that had been badly mangled by a bulldozer at a demolition site, planning to make a vacuum pump or airbrush compressor (or both!) Trouble is, I thought the liquid it contained was leftover refrigerant, and drained it all out. I didn't really have a choice, as leftover freon was gassing out of the compressor (thought it had lost pressure, but there was still a little in the compressor) and it was sputtering the oil everywhere. I held it upside down while carrying it home, and when I got it here, it was apparently empty. Then I found out that what I poured out wasn't liquid freon, but actually vital oil that keeps it alive. The compressor runs fine, but I only tried it for a few seconds for fear of destruction. I have many lubricants here, motor oil, 2-stroke oil, bike chain oil, etc. If I'm to dump an oil into my compressor, any ideas on which is the best call, and roughly how much should it take?

Have a 20 lb ABC fire extinguisher that I cannot get refilled / hydroed, made in 1980, Why?

Have a 20 lb Ansul Sentry ABC fire extinguisher.   I recently took it in to be hydroed/refilled but the refilling company would not perform this for me.  The extinguisher is in great shape and there is no visible damage or rust. This fire extinguisher was made in 1980 and Apparently they said that they would not refill or rehydro your product if it was made before 1984 or so.  Why did they tell me this and can I get it refilled somewhere legally?

What equipment is needed to fill an appropriate cylinder with oxygen generated by the electrolysis of water?

Update: I need someone that has experience with gas cylinders to point out potential dangers that would be present by filling this way, We've already discussed water vapor and oil potentially making its way inside. That doesn't sound good to me so I need certainty that its safe or those can be eliminated or reduced to safe levels. Right now I would really like to know what I need so I can refill tanks myself. I'm guessing its a special adapter or replacement valve, but I don't know where to start Original: Would it be possible to fill an appropriate oxygen tank with the right adapters/compression system with the oxygen generated by electrolyzing water and what kind of equipment would be needed? I know for propane you can buy adapters and refill/transfer from one to another, but obviously this is completely different, and I don't know anything about oxygen valves/adapters or compression systems. Yes I know this could potentially be very dangerous and also have no interest in collecting the hydrogen. Just to clarify we are talking about commercial grade tanks, not a 2 liter soda bottle. Also, if possible how high of purity would be expected using optimal electrodes and electrolytes to prevent corrosion and impurities. Any information at all would be very helpful.

Inventing on Vacation: Wounded Fish

This idea came to me after a day of fishing (I lost my best lure, but through the miracle of snorkeling, found it.) This seems like a simple idea, and I'm surprised it hasn't been invented yet. It is an improvement on the lures that supposedly look like a wounded fish.The idea is simple. A small, sealable "refill tube" connects to a hollow area inside the lure. This is the reservoir for fish blood. A thin membrane on one side of the lure allows the blood to seep out. You refill by filling an eyedropper with blood and inserting it into the refill tube. (I'm being brief right now because this is the third time I've typed this and I'm getting tired.)

Compressed air can - How to make larger one, refillable?

Hello! You know those compressed air can for cleaning dust form electronics and computers. They are working well, but if you use them a lot they become pretty expensive. For heavy user's alternative is to use compressor. They are not so expensive any more, but they are loud, heavy, large and not so practical to carry with you… So, after take in consideration that written above great thing would be to make reusable, larger, compressed air can. Something simple to use, some on/off leverage and small nozzle, and also refillable - fill it with that compressor which is heavy and loud. Some manometer would be nice, just to know how much air is inside. That "can" should be larger than Do you have any idea how to make it? Please share details, ideas, plans, other help… Thank you in advance! Best to all!

Is it worth the added expense to use nitrogen to inflate tires? Answered

I bought a new car last week and while doing the final walk around inspection before leaving the lot, I noticed the tire valve stems all had green caps. I asked the salesperson about them. She informed me that the dealership refilled all of their new cars' tires with N2. And then she rendered a rehearsed pitch about the benefits of N2 vs. air, less leakage, little tire pressure change and so on. By that time I just wanted to get the hell out of there and go home. I started thinking about the N2 issue today and after checking around, I found that it is very difficult to find places to refill the tires with N2 and those that do have it charge $5 to $10 US per tire for a refill. As of now, I plan to refill the tires with regular air when needed and throw the green caps away. My question is, does anyone have any real world experience with N2 inflated tires and any bits of advice or information to pass on. Thanks
