Broaching is the process of removing unwanted material by using cutting teeth that cut one after another, similar to how those disposable razors that have 3 blades work to cut hair short.

How do I accessorize a hat without making it look like a fancy dress item?

The secret when accessorizing a hat is not to over accessorize it. Pick a style and stick to it. You can use hat pins, scarves, a broach or a belt or even flowers and a feather. Just don't mix and match too many different ideas.

My battery terminals keep snapping and I have replaced the postive twice already in two months. What could be causing them to snap in half? They are hard metal so I don't understand.

A poor connection to the battery can melt a cable. Make sure your battery terminal is clean and free from corrosion.Make sure that your battery lead has slack and that it is not taught, especially when the engine is revving.
Make sure you don't over-tighten the soft battery terminal as it will over stress.

Non off the electrical componets working 2005 land cruieser

I understand replacing the battery

I have no idea why or how many fuses you replaced
I can see replacing any that may have blown, but not
any other ones

A fuse is just a piece of metal, it doesn't know polarity
or fail as a result.

It seems no one understands the diagnostic connector
is only to check for stored codes, unless your going to go
for a test drive with professional scan tool software

I would look for an open fusible link.

They may be a plug in like a relay,don't know

You need reference material or owners manual for that

I am attempting to add a second burner to my Acer Black Aspire Am3470G. The problem is inside the second door is a metal door or something preventing anything from going into the second door. How do I

The 'second door' you indicate, sounds to me like the metal rectangle that is left in the metal framework, of the computer case.

With the Front Panel removed, the metal rectangle should have holes, or a hole in it, or slits.
A metal screwdriver is used in the hole, or ****, to pry on the metal rectangle.

Usually at the Top. The top edge is pried out a little, then pushed back in. The metal rectangle is worked back, and forth.
This procedure is done to work on the tabs holding the metal rectangle in place, and break them.

W-A-T-C-H the edges. They can be SUPER sharp!

I have had problems with my , now 4 year old heat pump since day #1. We have had the repairman come out atleast 2 going on 3 times in the past year. Last time there was an explosion due to a wire on the...

Lisa, I can understand your frustration. I suspect that any replacement will have to be approved by Ruud. But, in most cases, they will probably want it to be repaired and they will pay the cost, if it's a part that is covered under the warranty. Certainly, you can broach the subject with the serviceman, but I don't think he'll be the one to make the call on total replacement. That is, unless, he owns the company and they were the one's who originally sold and installed it. In the meantime, contact Ruud's Customer Service Dept (the number should be in your Owner's Manual) and calmly explain your frustration and dissatisfaction with their product. That may go a long way, in either getting a new unit or the repairs paid by them. Be sure that you have your proof of Purchase handy, before calling.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

How do i troubleshoot the element and thermostat to determine if they are working?

Troubleshooting requires some electrical skill and cheap multimeter from home center.
Plus understanding that 240Volt water heater can kill you if it has gotten wet or is wet, or if you touch electric terminal, electric wire, or electrified part, or if water heater is improperly grounded, or if you stand on wet surface or touch metal pipes or anything metal or any grounded object.
Be sure to stand on dry boards or dry surface, do not stand on bare soil, and wear dry clothes and shoes, and don't touch or lean against anything metal, or on a metal ladder, or put metal object in mouth, and tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from electricity. And don't sweat.

Other than precautions above, testing electric water heater is simple enough using information on following link:
Look at label on side of tank to see voltage of water heater and wattage of element(s)

Changed battery .A square piece of metal the size of match head fell out. No alarm or light, casio forester FT200

mcdevito75 here, Of couse without the watch and piece of metal that fell out it"s very hard to say. Most likely it was part of the lock-down tab to keep the battery in place, in any event don"t lose that piece of metal. If your casio is working ok don"t worry about it, just don"t lose that piece of metal that fell out.

I lost the case with my serial number how do i get another one


Sony is particularly easy to deal with. When you registered your software after purchasing, your information is retained. Sony will provide you with your serial number free of charge.

However, if you did not register the software after purchasing, Sony will charge you a nominal fee to provide you with a serial number. DOnt worry though, it would be about $20.00us

I will not broach the subject of whether this is illegally obtained software, because you mentioned you had the case, which leads me to understand that you did in fact purchase it.

Thank you for using FixYa.

In harvest moon i don`t have enough money is

There are no gameshark cheats for infinite money...there is one for 50 000 coins though.
Anyway,the only cheat I have ever found on FOMT while playing is the horse race. Save before you go in to the town square,that way if you lose you can start over. You need to win lots of medals (doesn't matter if you bet on your horse or another horse),have your basket and empty inventory(largest backpack helps) with you,and then buy lots of necklaces or broaches after the race. Take the basket home and empty it into your bin.
This is your best son tried a cheat once with a gameshark and it killed the game.
Hope this helps.
