Replacement for this FET?

Okay... so long story short, i have this little transistor that i need the non-surface mounted version of. The part # is PHD3055E. I can only find the datasheet, And can't find it anywhere for sale. So i thought i'd come here and ask, Any ideas on what could replace this? Here's the datasheet in the google docs viewer. http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q;=cache:huahl6K3DFkJ:www.datasheetcatalog.org/datasheet/philips/PHP_PHD3055E-06.pdf+PHD3055E&hl;=en≷=us&pid;=bl&srcid;=ADGEESg3724yaKjv666t2rqjyyXVjvQp5HpfKIXr3723cJt4Y_bqPXypg_oySVo3Q9eOgiMBHIG4zDYsHVk73N0whYfHI3PTtv8kTeA_FzIxSWhNnkzgniEWSIQLls8aeQVgmyBDhZyI&sig;=AHIEtbRm4XdPQEc-wzTiPkqsGwSO1qblnA

Replacing laptop key

Hi, I have what can only be described as a "no-name" laptop sitting in the bottom of a drawer. Among other things it has a missing "G" key. The problem is I have absolutely no clue how to replace the key - I'm not going to pay for a whole new keyboard and the key + "springy bit" is long since gone. The only branding I can find is "Clevo M300N". I was hoping to buy a broken laptop and cannibalise it (there are other hardware issues, but the keyboard is driving me nuts) Can anyone give me a shove in the right direction here? (Sorry for rambling) Edit: UPDATE - I found the key, all I need now is some kind of spring or membrane to fix it right up!

Variable Capacitor Replacement?

Do you think it would be possible to substitute a variable resistor and a normal capacitor for a variable capacitor? The way I figure it is that a variable capacitor is supposed to adjust how fast said capacitor charges and discharges, wouldn't a variable resistor and a normal capacitor also function like this? I'm working on an idea for a small am radio, and looking to substitute these parts. Could it work? Thanks

Replacing the 2N3904 with an SCR

Alternate Battery for my laptop, will it work?

I got my laptop with a dead battery and I got my laptop from a liquidation sale, now my laptop use one of those battery packs that have a bunch of batteries the size of a AA. Their total voltage is around 14.4v as the battery pack says so, meaning each of the 8 batteries is about 1.8v. The batteries are lithium ion ones but I want to know if it would work to make a battery pack of my own out of alkaline batteries? I got a whole bunch from disposable cameras and want to use them. Now besides that the power adapter says it outputs 18.5v. So which one should I follow when making the battery pack? I will be hooking the alternative battery pack to the contacts the dead battery was so I guess I should make a battery pack around 14.4v. Any comments? Would this work?

Digitizer not working after replacement.

Hello, My wife accidentally crashed her phone digitizer (Samsung Galaxy Core 2 (G355H)). Its was still working, but you know... Being the type of man which always desire to fix something - I put myself to that mission. So I bought a new digitizer from one of eBay sellers. And sadly after replacing... the new digitizer was not working at all. Bringing back the old crashed digitizer to test it - it was still working. Tried to update firmware. Still the same. So I decided that It was faulty and asked for seller to resend the item. The new digitizer (number 2) came. Still the same stuff :(. Started to google. Found the solution on the internet. I have to let the phone boot with the old digitizer, when the boot is complete, need to remove the lcd and digitizer, replaced with the new digitizer (the phone has to stay on). And after that connected back the lcd... and its works... but sadly (as the author of this solution) if I reboot the phone - will not work again. PLEASE... Show me the direction what I need to do or where to search the answer

Replacement electric razor foil

Does anybody know an inexpensive way to replace the surface foil on an electric razor? I think it's called foil anyway; it's the metal part that contacts the skin and is a mesh of small holes for beard hair to pass through. The raw foil stock must be relatively cheap to fabricate; maybe there is a way to get a sheet of it and put it on the original frame from the shaver. Most replacements are almost the price of a whole new shaver. And I haven't even found a replacement for my modified, ancient Braun system 123. After the shaver died I resurrected it and made it solar powered by tearing out the charge circuitry and batteries and replacing them with two batteries and a diode that plugs into a small solar panel from a garden light. This worked perfectly for years until the foil wore through last week.

Bike to Trike - Bike Axle Replacement

Along with other minor changes to my bicycle, I really (really) want to turn my bike into a tricycle. I figure having one front wheel and two back wheels would be the best (and by best, I mean simplest) arrangement. I'm also guessing that it would be fairly easy and perhaps weld-free. I want to get metal tubing/a metal rod that is the same size as my back axle, have it be about 4 feet long, and place two wheels on either side. The gears would be located in the same spot they were, just attached to the axle and not the wheel. I don't know how thick my axle is, but I can figure that out - the problem is, will the axle hold my weight? I plan on also loading some cargo (add, say, 50 pounds). I don't think the cost would be too much (over $50?) and should I need to weld something, my brother might still be able to do it. Do y'all think this would work? Would the axle hold 250 pounds of weight? If so, the axle could be threaded on the ends so as to keep the wheels in place, right? Thanks!
