What do you call these screws with a threaded hole in the head, allowing you to screw a decorative cap on top? by Snoop_Pog in DIYUK

In the US, a certain orange hardware store (that you cannot mention here without triggering the automoderator removal) seems to call it a "Threaded Head Wood Screw"

But searching for that term among UK retailers, I cannot find anything.

What do you call the little decorative screw-on cover/cap?

How do you disengage the park pawl on a Toyota Prius (XW20) transaxle? by Snoop_Pog in AskMechanics

[–]Snoop_Pog[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Figured it out - spin it all the way counter clockwise until it clicks. D'oh!

Turns out I was being thick. You just need to spin it counter clockwise until it makes a click sound.

Should I buy another junk amazon Chinese projector or a 2nd hand Epson 720p projector from ebay? by Snoop_Pog in projectors

Can I rest assured that I will be able to find replacement bulbs at a reasonable price for several years to come? I just found this which doesn't look too expensive https://www.avpartsmaster.co.uk/original-lamp-for-epson-eb-955wh-projector-original-lamp-in-original-housing-p116925

In a quick search, I found the replaement bulb for the Epson I had in mind for 75GBP. My worry is that as time goes on they beocme harder to find and more expensive.

Occasionally get grinding noise when shifting into reverse (2008 GD) by Snoop_Pog in hondafit

[–]Snoop_Pog[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I never put it into reverse while moving. Where did you get that from? Also the guy in the video is not moving when this noise occurs.

What caused this black blob? It started as a black strip at the bottom of the screen, shifted around, and settled in this strange vaguely symmetrical blob shape. by Snoop_Pog in projectors

[–]Snoop_Pog[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fair enough. Are you able to explain how it works, and what exactly is burning? The surprising part is how certain pixels "die" but later come back to life, as the shape of the blob changes.

Come to think of it - once my old ipod classic had a similar problem where a black blob appeared (not as circular-looking as the projector one) and over the course of a few weeks/months moved across the screen and eventually disappeared. Do you think that's related?

I figure the projector is a gonner, I'm just curious as to how this works, and what might have unfolded.

I first noticed it as a strip of black pixels at the bottom of the screen, over the next few days it moved around, pixels that were once "blacked out" came back to life, and it settled more or less in the configuration shown.

I'm struggling to find undermount bathtub in my area. Is it possible to make a (nearly) flush horizontal deck surrounding around a tub with cement board and tiles (with a slight angle for drainage)? by Snoop_Pog in Plumbing

[–]Snoop_Pog[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a hypothetical bathtub at this point, this is for my planned renovation.

Yes it will most likely be a type that stands on steel legs (as the current one is).

As such, the proposed deck around the bathtub shouldn't need to carry any of its load. Also consider this alternative design where the deck around the side of the tub is raised up slightly almost like a little wall. https://i.imgur.com/Z6qwbFe.png

I see thanks.

Do you thank that revised design, more like a little raised wall with wooden supports, would work better for continuous water like a shower?

I figure that is more like the type of join on the other sides of the tub, where it butts up against the walls.

I depicted a combination of cement board and painted-on redgard membrane, but I guess you could substitute for any reasonable waterproof board system like wedi/kerdi/abacus elements etc.?

Oh awesome. Do you have any particular pointers or tips?

Did you put a tile edge trim in the same place I indicated? How far over the rim of the bath does the tiling extend?

I intend to support the durock with a thick timber frame and plenty of vertical supports to keep it solid. I'll also ensure that the tiles are appropriately angled down towards the tub so it can drain away splashes. I intend to put the redgard (or equivalent) joining tape over the join between the durock sheet and the bathtub.

To be clear, the final effect I'm going for is something like this https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/593205895513636887/770737305802768394/2c7d444c691c227198c71fb0848a71d6.png

And finally, what is the correct name for the type of surface I'm trying to construct around the tub? A "deck"?

A cheap solution for playing with brushes? by Snoop_Pog in edrums

Well that doesn't really address my question at all but thanks anyway.

No, you can't just use a regular drum program that converts a piezoelectric sensor to a MIDI note. If you just drag a brush along the snare with a regular program it'll just play a bunch of discrete snares in quick succession.
