Looking for Info On These CNC Motors For Replacement

I purchased a surplus 2-axis CNC machine with built by Yamaha. I hoped to rebuild it into a new machine for myself, but it ended up requiring 200 volts AC for the controller and motors, which I don't have access to. I sold off the controller already. I don't know too much about professional CNC macahines, hoping someone has some input. I am hoping to replace the motors with ones in the same form-factor that run on DC or 120v AC(if such thing exists), preferably stepper type. I do not know what form-factor/package/mounting style to look for, or even if any are available with the power requirements I want.  Motors are the same for both axis and are part#: TS2620N664E122, attached are some pictures. Thanks,

A PC-less 12"-15" digital picture frame? Anyone?

After reading DOZENS of DIY's explaining how to use an old laptop as a digital picture frame, I'm hoping someone here can provide a solution.I have an old 14" LCD computer monitor that I would just LOVE to turn into a low-cost digital picture frame. But I DON'T have a spare PC, nor do I want to bother with "booting into Windows/Linux/etc" just to use it. If that were the case, I'd just build a PC out of spare parts for $20. I'm looking for an easier (and less bulky) solution.I've seen DIY projects that turn small handheld media players into tiny digital picture frames, but the screen is typically no bigger than 1.5-to-3.5 inches. I can buy a *working* 3.5" DPF for the same price... not that I'd want one... with far less hassle. I'm looking to use the screen I've already got (spare it from ending up in a landfill), not buy something I don't want nor need.Maybe there's a way to connect one of these tiny media players to a bigger screen? Or maybe there's another way to display photos using something other than a PC that I'm unaware of?With all the old LCD monitors going into the trash, it seems a simple "box" that can plug into any old monitor to display photos, might be a very desirable device.Anyone?PS: I'm a "computer tech" of nearly three decades, so I already know the "complexity" of what I'm asking. Thanks.

Timing chain cover

I have a 97 dodge dakota and I need a new timing chain cover. On-line purchases are out of the question because I'm short on time and cash. I will be going to pick n pull to get a replacement but they currently only have years 91, 92, 93, 95, and 99. My question is this, how do i find out how similar any of these other covers are, short of driving all the way to the yard and inspecting each one. does anyone know off hand how interchangeable this piece is?

Replacing an embedded Metacafe video with one from Revver

I'm in the process of moving some of my video content from Metacafe to Revver (Metacafe is starting to suck a bit in several ways). I tried to replace the embed on one of my video instructables, editing it, choosing Revver in the dropdown list, then pasting in the embed code, but it said 'unsupported video host' Why would the video host be unsupported if it's listed in the dropdown? Or is it just that I can't replace the embed field contents of an existing instructable?

Always buy the warranty.

Don't listen to all those "experts" who talk on TV about not buying the 3 year warranties for computers. I've just been approvoed by BestBuy to get a replacement laptop to my replacement laptop. It was an HP DV2100, I think, and replaced some other COMPAQ. Long Story Short:Bought a laptopSomething went wrongSent away for repairLostOffered new, better laptopFound, offer honored anywaysReplacement laptop is accidentally damagedApproved for another replacement, to be picked up at our convenienceI've been saved countless times by those extended warranties. Once, there was actually 9 days left on the warranty for something, when it broke. Brand new one, baby =]Note: Buy it within reason of price, of course

I have a spigot like the one pictured. The bottom connection is a male 5/8 inch garden hose connection. It is leaking pretty badly around the handle/pretty much through it when opened. Any ideas on how to best fix it, or perhaps what to replace it with if replacement is a better idea, would be more than welcome. Thanks. Boris.

Replacement solar light kit?

I have a decorative garden light I am very fond of, but the solar charger/led light  is no longer working.  We tried switching out the batteries with new solar rechargeables but that didn't help.  I'm game for replacing the whole thing, charger, light, sensor and all, but haven't been able to find replacement kits anywhere.  The current unit uses one small solar panel about 3 x 4 inches and two AA batteries with one LED.  Clearly I'm not searching for the right words. TIA

Replace r/c batteries

Hi, does anyone know how to replace r/c car batteries with normal AA cells (or pp3 or whatever)? This is really annoying me coz I have an old r/c car (pretty good one actually) but the battery has died and I was wondering how to replace it (or 'refresh' it if this is possible, which I don't think it is...). It would also be helpful to know a technique for finding out the voltage/amperage of the old batteries so I can fix it without blowing the electronics. Pictures would be attached but the uploader isn't working right now; I'll get them up as soon as possible. Thanks guys,

Replace just 1-2 bad li-on cells?

I've got a fairly new DeWalt 20V Lipo Battery pack that got a bit of water inside it's case, causing 1 of the 10 cells inside to go bad. Pertinent info: * Battery pack is configured as 5x2 (5 series stages of two parallel pairs each) * Other cells are in near-new condition. * OEM Factory battery exact matches are rare and quite overpriced.  (1500mah x 15A discharge rate @ $10-20 shipped.) * Due to improvement in battery tech, I can get batteries that outperform OEM in every spec for 30-40% of what the OEM costs (2500mah x 20A discharge rate @ $4-6 shipped.) * The battery pack is always charged on a cell-balancing charger. Assumptions:  (Correct me if I'm wrong here, especially on the 2nd one) * The partner cell to the dead one is now suspect, due to being undercharged (down to <.1V)  by it's dead partner. * I should be able to just replace the bad cell and it's partner with the higher spec'd batteries and it shouldn't be a problem Is this workable, or will having non-identical cells for 2 of the 10 cells cause problems?  (I'm totally fine with the pack only being as strong as the weakest link, and only getting OEM performance out of the replaced cells.) I'd rather not have to replace all 10 cells, but I'd rather do that than replace 2, and -then- have to replace all 10 because the combination didn't work.

Ideas for a counter balance

I am looking at ways to replace the weight of the batteries in a cordless drill (the batteries leaked, and they are not sold to my knowledge anywhere in THIS country); after wiring in a power supply (making it corded).   Any suggestions?   I have thought of a few but nothing seems overly viable at the moment.

Replace 3-way light swtichs

  Hi Folks,   I have a small laundry room with two 3-way light switches and no outlets. I would like to replace both switches using one of these options: Replace "master" switch with combo switch/outlet (like Pass & Seymour TM838. Replace slave switch with an Occupancy Sensor Switch. -OR- Same has above but use a regular outlet instead of combo. If I have to I would be happy with disabling one of the switches and just have the Occupancy switch. I have posted photos of the wires coming out of the switches here: http://stellabotte.smugmug.com/Other-1/Electric/37036170_Zc4KSw/#!i=3075021321&k;=gGJ9vgJ The replacement switches are: Pass & Seymour TM838-WCC   Combination Sw/Outlet    Pass & Seymour RW3U600       Multi-Way Occupancy Switch   One side bar question, can any 3-way switch work with any other 3-way switch on the same circuit ? Thanks -Fred

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
