A weld will ruin the temper of the metal, it will fail. A rim that cracked probably is weak elsewhere.

How to fix crack in door?

I believe these are plastic doors, so you can plastic weld a repair, or rough it up with sand paper and used fiberglass product such as "kitty hair" and glass mat, sand smoth and paint. Better still, there are tons of these in junkyards. Find one the right color and replace the door.

Sandpro 50 4510 water is squirting out of the front and it appears to be a hairline fracture. how can I fix this as it isn't even 2 years old?

JB Weld. Make sure the surface (inside and outside) and the crack is clean and dry. Mix up some JB Weld and press it into the crack from both the inside and the outside. Be sure to spread a layer of JB Weld across the crack. You do not want the JB Weld to be just in the crack.

Let the JB Weld cure according to the package before reassembling and running water through it. I would give it a whole day if possible.


If the crack is just on the tank itself, you can find just the tank online for around $50.

What do i use to fix a hair line crack in my 1997 jeep grand cherokee

Since you failed to say what is cracked, I'll assume it's the engine block? You can try one of the better block and gasket sealers (good ones are expensive) or replace the engine. Body and chassis cracking needs to be welded.

Jackson kayak hull repair

Crosslink = good luck
Linear plastic is simple: cut a sliver from your cockpit and try to weld it back with a heat gun, soldering iron or old skiwax iron, do not use open flame as this will produce soot.

There are many sources of linear plastic, use the above system to ensure compatibility of plastics.
When welding try to melt the two plastics together, I normally spin the plastic "welding rod" thereby mixing old and new material into a good composite of both.

Video is my son's Rockstar, we welded a bow protector because Jackson linear plastics cannot compare to any other boats I have paddled in thirty years. Jackson's paddle well and my son loves his boat, but as his technician it sucks.

Google "keelguard" this product may help someone.

BTW an old iron works great on linears to smooth out cuts or nicks. Boiling hot water will help pop dents out!

Dryer makes a thumping sound with or without anything in it

Look for a crack in the seam, where the stainless steel drum is welded together, either at the front or back edge of the drum. If weld is cracked, replace drum.

The chain has snapped and hit the left side crank case and put a hole in it about the size of a 10p. Do you think I could cover this with something and if so can you reccomend anything as the cost of a new...

If you're sure the piece that got punched out is gone and not inside the engine waiting to ruin your day even further then you could in theory get by with good old jb weld.
Remove the cover and totally degrease the thing inside and out. While it's off look for any bits loose inside the cover. Find yourself a bit of steel mesh (window screen) big enough to cover the hole plus a bit. Put the screen over the hole and use a sharpy to mark it's edges. remove the screen and take a drill with a small bit ( < 1/8"). Pop a few holes in the area of coverage of the screen and around the hole. These holes give the jb weld more grip as it will flow into the holes and harden. The holes need not go thru but if a few do its good.
Take a small file and roughen the surface around the hole so the jb weld will have something to grab onto. degrease the area smear some jb around the hole from the outside and set your screen into the jb weld....add some more jb over the screen. Use a wet finger to smooth out the jb weld (if you add over this then don't forget to clean and roughen again).
Look inside the cover and smooth out any jb that came thru to the inside. Of course you have roughened inside the case so any jb inside will adhere nicely.
Once the jb has fully set you should be good to go....monitor your repair for any leaking. Also look closely for any cracks radiating away from the hole and make sure your repair covers them as well.
Take care.

I just got my new bike with my 700c Road rims with a gouge

the sharp edge could be polished, but its up to you what you want to do with the ppl you ordered from. just for safety, it should be blended out, so it does not crack, thats what i do on aircraft aluminum

Car wont start in the rain

Hi, your disributer cap must be letting moisture in or it has a hair crack.
REplace it with a new one & also spray some sort of water repellent (WD40) onto the new cap inside & out.
Also smear some grease around the rim of the cap to stop mositure getting in.
This cured a VW that plagued us every time their was either rain or fog.
Also check you rotor arm as well for hair cracks or just replace it with a new one.
