Covering up computer vents?

My computer has these vents on the case that are blowing out cold air while my expansion slot vent is blowing out VERY hot air. I was thinking I could cover up the vents that are blowing out the cold air which is very cold so I could make the inside of my comp cold so my video card doesn't get as hot. Is this a good idea?

How do you open a clogged plumbing air vent to a kitchen sink? Answered

We are having a plumbing problem with the  kitchen sink draining. The dishwasher ( for the most part) drains, but the kitchen sink does not. We have  tried the regular drain cleaners with no success. Then on the Internet it said to try sulfuric acid. When he went to Lowe's to get the acid, the Lowe's man suggested another really good drain cleaner and we tried it, it was something that you put so much in for 3 days. It didn't work. Last night we tried the sulfuric acid, sink still not draining. Or I should say , it drains very very very slow, pretty much takes several hours to drain. He has also been up on the roof checking to see if there was a bird nest or something blocking the vent. He didn't find any obstruction. He used a plumbers snake and he could put it down through the vent until it reached water. However , the plumbers snake did come loose from the handle, and now it is in the vent. We don't know how to get it out, or if it will be a problem in the vent. ....and he did not take a hose up to the roof and run water into the vent. That is the only thing I see that we have not done yet. He has taken all the pipes apart under the sink and run the snake under there as far as he can, there is no clog under the sink that we can find. Those drain pipes are all put back together. The plumbing in the rest of the home all works properly.

Help Replace Discontinued Range Hood Vent Fan Switch

The variable speed fan control on my Thermador HT48HQS hood vent does not work and the replacement switch is no longer available.  I'm looking for some help in making a new switch.  The Thermador VTR1000Q motor is mounted on the roof and controlled at the hood with a variable speed control knob. The motor is rated at 115V 60Mz 7.8 Amps. Photos of the switch assembly are attached. From what I understand, the speed control knob is a potentiometer that regulates the speed by proving a range of amps from 2.5 to 8? If I could make a variable speed control that would be great.  But I'd be more than happy to have create an on/off toggle switch or a toggle for low on/off high.  Can anyone help me?

Does a basement sink require venting?

 We live in a house built in 1979, and the builder subbed a drain pipe in the basement concrete for a wet bar.  They installed it far too close to the wall to build a bar, but too far from a wall to be useful in any way.  We have enclosed it in a small room behind a fish tank, and we want to make a small utility sink to drain the tank.  It doesn't have a water source, and it is awkwardly positioned in the room, even in this application.  I was looking through a home improvement book and saw a photograph of a basement subbed for a bath and it showed a sink vent.  Our drain most certainly doesn't have a vent.  Is this an issue?  Does every sink/drain need venting, or is it enough that (hopefully) the other drains in the house are vented?

Help Needed with Clogged Air Vent Drain Pipe and ? on Dishwasher Drain Pipe

I need help and learning how to remove, de-clog, etc. The picture is my kitchen sink drain area.  I have two-sink with the right side having a garbage disposal, with connecting pipes leading out.  But then, I have another pipe leading out in the same direction, but it serving as an air vent pipe.  There's a cooper pipe leading up and into the air vent pipe. Prior to taking the picture, my dishwasher's drainage pipe was connected to the bottom of the cooper pipe.  Well, last night I've noticed my sinks were clogged, I ran the garbage disposal, and then the a gush of garbage water came out of the under sink cabinet. Well, after a lot of cleaning, this morning I removed the drainage pipe from the sinks, and noticed that my air vent pipe was gushing out the garbage water. After searching the internet, it's rare to have a clogged air vent, but at the same time, no one seems to install the dishwasher drainage pipe into the air vent pipe. So my questions are: 1) Should my dishwasher drainage pipe be connected to the upper part of the garbage disposal?  (You can see there's a fitting on the disposal right above the white PVC pipe leading out of the disposal.) 2) Why would they (the original builders) install the dishwasher drain pipe into the air vent pipe? 3) Most importantly, how do I go about in unclogging the air vent pipe?  (It's all bonded together versus having a washers and nuts or a threaded union.) 4) Any answers and questions that I don't know what to ask?  Insights/suggestions? Please and thank you. v/r Bobby

Replacing a propane stove with a wood stove --HELP NEEDED

I need to remove a propane heating stove and install a woodstove that I already own. I'd like to install the woodstove in the same spot as where the propane stove sat and I'd llke to use the same venting pipe if possible. The problem that I see is that the propane stove uses a 4.5" vent pipe off the back of the stove and it continues to be 4.5" pipe as far up the chimney as I can see (only a foot or two) also, the propane vent pipe is thin, flexible aluminum pipe that goes up the inside of the chimney, while the woodstove connecting pipe is 6". I don't know if the woodstove can be used with 4.5" flex vent pipe from the propane stove or if it needs bigger, steel pipe for wood fires. Does anyone know? Thanks. Peter Norwell, MA

Want to use a pet door as garage vent.

I am a renter and have a 2 car garage with a pet door in between. The garage stays pretty hot even with a fan running. I needed to vent some of this hot air. I thought I could take a box fan and design some sort of ducting to allow the hot air to be sucked out and cooler air in and also prevent the pets from escaping. I figured I could remove the plastic grill and attaching the duct to the screw holes left from the grill removal. Not so great with geometry but needed to slope the duct box doen to the rectangular shape of the pet door. Any thoughts?

Clay Contest Criteria

I have a question about the Clay contest criteria....debating whether to do an instructable for a DIY downdraft kiln vent for under $50 (cf $450-600 to buy) that I built. I've actually been waiting for the clay contest before publishing, however the contest criteria says:  "For the purpose of this contest, any project that uses a moldable, malleable, clay-like product will be eligible." So question is, would a kiln vent be eligible? Previous contest criteria has been "all things" related to said topic, but this seems more narrow in scope. Obviously a kiln vent is not made with clay, but it certainly fits the pottery topic. What to the contest gurus say?

Dishwasher not draining, kitchen sink and bathtub draining slowly?

Recently everything seems to be draining slowly. I snaked the bathtub and removed a chunk of hair but it's still draining slow. My dishwasher isn't draining properly and the sinks partially fill up when dishwasher is running. Also the kitchen sink drains slowly. Could this be an air vent block? Last winter we  had a similar issue with our kitchen sink, after snaking, baking soda and vinegar etc it still would not drain well. We thought it might be ice buildup in the pipes? If it is an air vent block how would one go about unclogging? Also is there any chance the air vent would come out of the side of the house and not the top?

Is a CRT electron gun any use?

Is it worth it to take the electron gun out of a CRT when salvaging parts? I've seen people remove the electron gun when they take apart the CRT but I don't know what they'd use it for. What can you do with a CRT electron gun? What chemicals does the gun contain? (I know the screen has toxic phosphor and stuff but I'm talking about the gun itself). Also, is it safe to vent a CRT tube? I have found that you should vent the CRT tube before working on it, by smashing the end from a distance, so that it won't implode if you happen to break it when working on it. But is it safe to puncture open the tube? There are toxic phosphors inside and I worry that venting it could cause toxic chemicals to go airborne.

Apartment Wind Turbine ideas

Hey all. I would like to gather opinions on 2 small wind turbines I'm thinking of constructing. Difficulty: I live in a third floor apartment (it's also the top floor). My first idea was to modify an old box fan and mount it outside my window. Then I walked into my bathroom, which has a noisy exhaust fan in it. I accidentally turned it on and realized that I could build a collapsable darrieus turbine that would fit up the exhaust vent, expand when outside, and hook that up to the exhaust fan motor already in the vent. Does this sound feasable? My goal is to see if I could charge a cell phone from the power generated by one of these two options. apologies for the quick-n-dirty sketch below.

I have no background in chemistry, but it seems to me it shouldn't be too difficult to put something together using standard glass lab equipment to capture, distill and reuse the butane. Butane boils at 31 degrees farinhite and is heavier than air. At the end of the process, the oil is scraped from the bottom of a drying dish.
