I had the same problem and I used a knee support. Regular uses of the knee support heal my pain. But I think that the knee pain is quite common in older age and it's not a perfect solution for the elders. So consult your doctor for the major issue of knee pain. If you are going to use a knee support then search in this link where you can find a variety of knee supports.

A brace can't repair the tear or can it really prevent further injury. A neoprene sleeve can keep the knee warm and help keep it from swelling until ice can be applied after exercise. The only type of brace that truly protects the knee is one with lateral metal supports that keep the tracking forward and back with no side-to-side instability. If a knee is really bad, an immobilizer (from high on the thigh to the shin) is the best means of protection. Of course, one does not exercise with an immobilizer - they are mostly pre- and post-surgically. If the tear causes the knee to "lock" or if the pain keeps you up at night, it's time to see an orthopedic surgeon. Some elite athletes have used physical therapy (and lots of it) to avoid surgery until they have sufficient time to rehab. If you've seen a surgeon and have confirmed the diagnosis through an MRI, an arthroscopic procedure might be warranted.

Thread pulling fabric through feed dogs


Usually when that happens you have the wrong needle plate on for the fabric. Now if you don't have an extra needle plate.... try floating a piece of tissue paper or tear away stabilizer between the fabric and the feed dogs. When the seam is finished just tear away the paper or stabilizer.

Another thing sometimes the problem lies in not having a long enough stitch for the fabric.

How to remove sprocket from husqvarna 61 chainsaw


Thr clutch is a left hand thread, there is a 19mm nut on the outside, by far the easiest way to remove it is to use an impact gun and 19mm socket, and just keep jarring it against compression, if you do not have an impact gun then use a 19mm socket and speed brace, using a soft hammer jar the brace against the compression of the saw until the clutch spins off.

I have two braces that come off of the rear axel and attach to the frame towards the back of the axel. What are these called?


hi these braces are for lateral stability.. they help to stop body roll and to allow the axle to keep the wheels on the ground when cornering.. jeeps are notoriuos for rolling when pushed hard on a bend so the wheels maintaining grip helps keep you upright.

Embroidery machine patterns are not consistant


I'm just beginning to work with my machine, but I have had a similar issue. Some of the possible solutions that I have found include (note: I've tried #1, I will try 2 and 3 soon)...
1. use stabilizer fabric.
2. if you're using tear-away stabilizer, and it is tearing prematurely, try a cut-away stabilizer (or maybe iron-on stabilizer?).
3. if you're embroidering on fabric like fleece, try 'hoopless embroidery' This involves using adhesive stabilizer - put the stabilizer in the hoop with no fabric, (if you don't have adhesive stabilizer, use regular stabilizer and spray it with a craft adehesive) then lay your fabric over the hoop and press the fabric onto the adhesive.
good luck.

Removing of power steering pressure hose


The brace is there to stabilize and hold the power steering hose. When the pump is in operation, if the hoses weren't locked down they would jump all over the place and do damage to themselves.

If you need to remove the bracket, go ahead. Just be sure you put it back on.



Hope this helps.
