Cutting the trim around a steel sink

I need some professional advice. I need to decide on a sink for my future apartment (under construction) and I don't have the choices I like. I really want an undermount sink with a satin finish - and it's hard to come around where I live  (South America). I have found a satin finish drop-in type sink, and I am wondering if it could be cut to be used as an undermount sink. My question is, will the bowl of the sink warp if the frame is cut? The sink I want to cut looks like this but without the strainer on the left. Red lines indicate how I would like to cut the sink.  Thanks for your time, Colorex

I replaced the trim motor last year.  Yesterday I find when pressing the up/down buttons, no response.  All I hear is a clicking coming from both Siemens relays.  Does this clicking indicate that they are both working and breaking the series ground contact like they should.  If yes, what do I look for and check next??   If no, do I just replace both relay's??   Thank you all very much for the help because I need to get back on the water.

Is there an easy and safe way to trim/grind the edge of a glass plate? Answered

I'm trying to fit a pre-cut mirror glass (rescued from a $5 Wal-Mart mirror) into the back of a shadow box.  The mirror itself is not quite square, so there is one corner and part of the adjacent edge which won't quite fit into box (about 0.5 mm overlap).  If this was wood or plastic, I'd grab some sandpaper and bring the edge down to fit.  Is there an equivalently easy, but safe, method for doing the same with glass (3 mm thick)?

could 12 strips of pvc angle trim be used to make a light but fairly rigid box frame?

I need to make a prop, the base of which is essentially an open upside down box of around 75cm x 75cm x 75cm. i was going to use a large cardboard box but it needs to be able to pack down as flat as possible for transportation and needs to be able to survive potential rain. i'm thinking i could drill a hole in both faces of each end of 12 strips of pvc angle trim (the stuff used around windows and doors), bolt it all together as a frame and attach corrugated plastic panels as the box faces. do you think the resulting box would be rigid enough to survive a few accidental knocks and kicks without collapsing? i'm not intending to add any load to the box other than a few blocks of carved foam for panel decoration.

How do you tile a bathroom wall that has a window?

We are tiling around our new tub and about 3/4 of the way up the wall. We have a window that is just off the tub, so the tile will wrap around about half of the window. We aren't sure what the best way to go about this job is. We have the green board moisture-resistant drywall up, and are planning to use a primer and then begin tiling. I need to know the best method for going around the window, which we plan to trim. Would we trim first and then butt the tiles up against the trim? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Making my own Window exterior insulation panel insert

I have standard wood windows in our home where we should have spent the money and bought good, double-pane aluminums, but didn't so.... I need some advice. These windows I have are too new, to replace. There are small recesses on the exterior of the wood window frames where I want to insert permanent glass/plexiglass cover for insulation. I need advice on what framing I can use, similar to a poster frame trim where I can install it around the glass, then slide it into the window recess. I’d like to use an aluminum trim that is fairly narrow that would look good. I find framing trim that has slots I can slide the glass into, but what I’m finding is too thick. I only have about quarter inch I can insert to. Any advise?

Timer to flip light switch?

I need a timer that will mechanically operate a wall switch for a light. I've seen a device years ago for sale in the various "gadget" catalogs that did exactly this. It attached to the trim plate around the light switch using the 2 trim plate screws. A battery powered digital timer operated a mechanical slide to operate the wall switch. I can't find this device anywhere now. I know there are many electronic timers that replace the wall switch and have timer capability, most do not work with compact flourescent lights. I'd really like to find a timer for sale or get some ideas on a simple way to make such a device. Thanks for any help. Scott

Brushed DC motor HP requirements for Longboard? Answered

So I have 2 brand new tilt/trim pump motors and thought about making a set of matching electric longboards since products like Boosted Boards seem to have become fairly popular.  I am not too sure whether the tilt/trim motor would be strong enough though, they are a decent size motor though.  But it got me thinking what size is required for an electric longboard? The main problem with the tilt/trim pump motors is that I can't find specs on them anywhere, just specs for tilt/trim pump assemblies they are off of, but nothing about the motor itself other then SAE J1171 Marine rating.  Because of this I thought of buying another DC motor to do the job.  (Picture of tilt/trim motor) The constraints for me is that I have a couple 12 - 24v 100A motor controllers already, for brushed motors only.  As well, I want to just pick up a couple cheap $40 12v, 24AH Sealed led-acid (SLA) batteries from the local Ace Hardware and run either a 12v or 24v motor.   Options on eBay for affordability purposes range from 12v, 24v, 90v and 180v dc, obviously 90v and 180v are out of the question.  Looking through the 12vdc and 24vdc motors, there are many fractional HP motors available.  I was looking at something like this; http://www.ebay.com/itm/172252712203?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName;=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Running 1/4 HP at 24v, would 1/4HP be enough though?  I know electric motors HP ratings are lower then petrol engines, a 6.5HP petrol go kart runs about the same as an identical kart with a 1HP electric motor. If that isn't enough I am thinking a 2/3HP motor from Holley might be better? http://www.ebay.com/itm/361524972024?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName;=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Wondering if someone has an idea for sizing.  I know lots of eBikes and Chinese electric mini bikes and things have 500W motors, so roughly 2/3HP, so I can't imagine I need more then that.  As well I don't want it to go too fast (fear of speed wobbles) but if anyone would have an idea of sizing that would be super helpful!
