    DIY table tennis aka ping pong table base.

    Hey guys, I salvaged a nice ping pong table top from a busted up base. Its the two piece folding kind. I'd like to make a simple base for it. Probably without the geometrics of making it folding for the sake of brevity, summers almost gone. I have plenty of metal and a welder, unless some...

    What drill bit do I use for this simple turned nightmare job?

    A lady friend asked me to help her hang a planter outside. I thought simple enough, but was skeptical because she is pretty handy, own and air bnb rents this place. ... So I go to hang the planter. Its a stucco wall. No biggie, I have a plethora of drilling and fastening options. I figured...

    So I got a pool table....Now I need cues.

    So a buddy who has a moving gig needed to off a pool table out of his giant transit van. I accepted it in pieces skeptically. Turned out to be a Connelly in excellent shape. Had even more luck finding a good, cheap and honest guy on craigslist to assemble and cover it. I paid him above asking...

    Maybe someone here has this experience.... When I am reversing with the steering wheel turned, it makes a nasty clunk sound from passenger side front. There's also a metal on metal clunking sound over certain speeds/bumps. Logic tells me its the control arm bushings, but they look perfect, and...

    I've hit a wall, come to point where I will struggle with adjustable wrench rather than dig for a 10mm....or maybe its a 3/8"....wait its neither....maybe its an 11mm? that don't fit either. now I'm perplexed. For a minute I was on a kick collecting any and every tool that might make the job...

    AC blows cold but not that cold.

    Many summers ago I resurrected my AC as per tech article here. However, I only replaced the compressor, orifice tube, and o rings. It was ice cold for about a year until the compressor crapped out. It was a cheapo big box store brand. I replaced the compressor with something (hopefully) better...

    Diagnosis suggestions for F150 front end issues.

    Not sure where to start on on my '08 F150. Front end feels like I am driving over square edges, and its about to explode. I cant visually see anything wrong. I haven't worked on rack and pinion vehicles much, do they have tie rods that go bad? Is it suspension bushings? ball joints? wheel...

    Allen keys, do they sell just the holders/ indexes?

    I have a drawer full of Allen keys, and don't want to buy another set just to have them organized. Do they sell just the holders? I found some from Brondhus, but wondering if there are other options. Ideally the ones that are on a key ring with spring tension holding the keys. Otherwise please...

    5 speed grinds unless I shift like a grandma.

    I really gotta baby my shifts to keep it from grinding gears. I suspect worn synchros, am I on the right track? Also I may have used the wrong ATF in the last flush, which I vaguely recall was type F. Am I screwed? I forgot the technical name of mine, but its the common 5 speed manual they...

    Why does my cam synchro keep going bad, and where do I find a good one?

    I hear the squeak, and tell myself its a pulley, or maybe the belt. But I know what it is...that random, ear piercing chirp is undeniable. At least this time there's no CEL. This will be my 3rd time swapping it. yes I followed procedure, and oiled the gear good before dropping in. The first...

Luckily I can get to it from the inside/underside of the bed. Any advice on how to pop it out with best results? i was thinking of pushing it out with a 2x4...

    4.0 gradually getting harder to start...where to start?

    So my ranger usually fires right up, sometimes needing a little more cranking and some throttle. Lately this has been happening more often. 20/80 hard start is now 80/20. It needs extended cranking and throttle to start 80% of the time. Where would be a good place to start looking? PS. I...

    I posted this in entertainment, because it is just a thought, and maybe just a dream lol... I noticed a lot of us use and suggest/refer Rock Auto to others. We probably provide them a lot of business. Maybe we can band together and get some love back from them in the form a TRS member...
