Can't swing the backhoe arm left or right with the controls

The travel lock is either in place keeping it from moving in transport or there is something wrong with the hydraulics. Look for a push button release. The other thing is the stabilizers have to be engaged

How to test for gas leaks at furnace or elsewhere

Using a liquid dish soap diluted with water put in a spray bottle, like a glass cleaner bottle,use a 3:1 ratio of water to soap. Have good lighting and spray all lines and special attention to all connections. pay close attention to any bubbling. If any bubbles form, turn off gas, unscrew pipes at fittings and using a pipe thread sealer "pipe dope" coat threads liberally and reconnect fittings tightly. Retest after opening the gas valve. Gas lines use a globe valve which are open when the slotted knob is parallel to the length of the line. Be very careful not to allow any open flames until it is certain that all leaks are repaired. Warning never attempt to connect gas pipes or fittings without Pipe thread sealer or Teflon tape ; if it doesn't leak immediately it is certian to do so! Use good judgement or pay a proffessional with liability insurance.

How do I change the lightbulb in the HC-1131 ceiling fan... the globe will not come off and the whole shaft turns if I try to lift and turn the only part that looks like it comes off

I appologize in advance for not having absolute, 100% certainty if this will work with your particular model of fan, but it appears that most fans of that style have a threaded globe glass covering. The difficulty most people encounter, is that if the globe is even mildly warm from the fan motor running, it will be near-impossible to grip, much less to turn.
In all related cases I had read about, the solution was to allow about 12 to 24 hours of power to the fan being completely off to allow it to cool, then try turning the globe to unscrew it. Most suggest "clockwise" but I have no way of knowing if they mean clockwise from the perspective of looking up at the globe, or clockwise relative to the fixture itself.
Some also suggest that rubber gloves to improve grip or friction may also help to turn the globe.

My ringgrip smartglow 6 hour timer globe which is used infrequently (when I go on holidays) has stopped working (no illumination). As I consider that it has not had a lot of work, the question is, is there...

I have three solutions to help you.

1/ The globe may have been bumped or jarred and the filament may be broken
The filament can be repaired.
Look through the small area of clear glass near the neck of the bulb, using a magnifying glass; and a torch at that area and other areas around the globe
to inspect the filament.
With your eye follow the filament connections very slowly from one end to the other,
until you find the break (if any).
Memorise roughly where it has the break in proportion to some reference on the outside of the globe (felt pen mark).
Then insert the globe into a portable corded fitting (mechanics light).
Holding the fitting in your hand, switch it on.
Move your hand around (so the globe is either upside down, left, right, or diagonal, etc),
gently jarring the globe, remembering the position of the break of the filament, try to cause the filament's broken end to touch the terminal where it originally broke off from (doesn't have to be the exact position of the terminal, but in that area).
With a little patience, you may cause it to touch, and when you do, the light will instantly come on, the filament will be repaired (welded back on), and may even outlast any other part of filament breaking in future.
Now the instant it comes on, don't move your hand for a minute or so, to allow it to properly weld, then switch off, allow it to cool, then remove from portable fitting.

2/ If the problem is not the filament, the electronics can also be repaired.
They are located in the bayonet part of the globe,
and are the second cause of failure.
A skilled technician can access and repair that area
for only $10 grand.

3/ A more economical remedy, however, is to hold the globe upside down
in your hand,
then slowly release it from a twenty storey window.

Hope one of these helps !

Flame does not flicke in my electric fireplace

if flame not flickering and you can see the globes lighting flame its the fan that moves the ribbons is faulty unless it has fuse to it which may have blown, but how the flame works is by globes lighting through ribbons that are moved by a fan to give a flicker effect unless its rotating glass wheel like some, that turn with the globes behind that give you a flickering effect its always better with electrical to have an electrician look if it was the globes yes that is an easy replace but to change a fan or rotating glass wheels

I cannot remove light cover on ceiling fan to replace globe

There are usually small screws around the outside of the globe that screw into a recess on the globe with a rubber ring around it to keep the screws from hitting the glass.

How to adjust a David White transit level

I just assisted a friend "re-calibrate" his D.W. L6-20 Level Transit. Follow the following steps.
1. Set up the tripod & transit in the garage. Get the platform with the protractor, close to level.
2. Position the telescope at "0". The telescope should be over 2 of the adjusting screws.
3. Adjust the screws to get the top bubble close to level. Adjust with a screwdriver the spring loaded screw to get the bubble closer to center.
4. Rotate the scope 180 degrees. Note the difference in the bubble position. Split the difference from the first bubble location by adjusting the same top screw.
5. Rotate back to 0. Adjust the same top screw to split the difference in bubble position.
6. Rotate back to 180 degrees. The bubble should be off by the same amount. Adjust the 2 bottom screw to place the level in the center.
7. Rotate back to 0. The bubble should not move.
8. Rotate to 90 degrees and adjust the 2 bottom screws to place the bubble in the center.
9. Rotate to 270 degrees. The bubble should be centered.
10. From this point on, all you need to do is place the level on the tripod and position it over your reference point with a plumb bob. Adjust the bottom 2 screws at 0 and again at 90. The level is set to use.

Olympia, and/or Sharper Image infoglobe. Need fix.

It appears that you have already removed the 4 screws. The globe will not just fall off, it has to be pried. Take a small- bladed screwdriver or a small-bladed pocket knife and gently pry from any small opening you see between the globe and its base. Work the blade around the globe and it will come off. I just did it and now I'm trying to figure out how to get inside the "guts" of the globe. Will keep you advised.
