    How to Remove a Stubborn Nut/Bolt

    I have to ask...if you follow the steps in the instructable, one after another, going from one failed liquid or chemical to another, do you need to clean off the previous liquid/chemical/wax, before going onto the next? If so, is there one liquid/chemical that would neutralize all of the suggested? Just asking to avoid any safety issues.

    Unclogging Rust-Oleum Nozzle

    Although the "turning the can upside down and spraying until no more paint exits the nozzle" will work on some cans (where instructed on back of can), it doesn't work on the cans that allow you to spray with the can in positions other than with the can straight up and down. These are typically the cans with the nozzle as shown in the instructable. Turning the can upside down to spray only allows the paint to continue spraying out without clearing the nozzle.

  • RADIANT FLOOR HYDRONIC (water) HEATING SYSTEM

    I had a heated driveway put in a number of years ago....yes, it's expensive to run but at the time I was concerned with getting to work on time and since my garage faces north, it wasn't uncommon for the bottom of my garage door to get frozen to the cement making it impossible to get my car out of the garage. Now that I'm retired, I only turn it on when we get a freezing rain that leaves an ice coating on the driveway. I appreciate your instructable and your undertaking such a project. I, too, took plenty of photos as the system was put in incase I needed the info later. I did the same when my house was constructed so I knew where interior pipes and wires were run. I have needed to refer to those photos often over the years. If I were to have another house built, I would have a he...

Now that I'm retired, I only turn it on when we get a freezing rain that leaves an ice coating on the driveway. I appreciate your instructable and your undertaking such a project. I, too, took plenty of photos as the system was put in incase I needed the info later. I did the same when my house was constructed so I knew where interior pipes and wires were run. I have needed to refer to those photos often over the years. If I were to have another house built, I would have a heated water floor system included, as my feet are always cold in the winter. Not something that is easily, and inexpensively done, as an afterthought. I have a question about the flow direction of the water. Wouldn't it make more sense, for comfort, to reverse the direction so the hotter temp water is coming into the center of the rooms and the colder is going out around the perimeter, or, is it done the way you have it because the colder temp of the room would be around the perimeter because of exterior walls and windows? Again, good instructable!

    How to Make a Solar Powered Walkway

    I like the potential of this project. Any chance of you updating/re-writing it taking into consideration reader tips and where supplies can be found now in 2018? Thanks.

  • Drill Press to Lathe With a Bit of Scrap Wood

    I found the pictures would have been easier to make out if your work area had been less cluttered. Presentation is as important as the content. Otherwise, not bad.

    If you do an edit or re-write of this, you might change your spelling of Aluminum by removing the last "I" in your spelling. Thanks.
