When I was in school it would always frustrate me that the tips of the pencil were always breaking in the sharpener. It took many tries of turning the pencil and turning the sharpener, different amounts of pressure and I finally found the secret.
Sharpening a pencil is a very easy thing to do. When you are using a hand sharpener, either a small plastic one with a cartridge to catch the shavings or the really small ones that don't catch the shaving, your put the utencile end of the pencil into the sharpener keeping it has straight as possible.
Applying a little pressure turn the pencil in the clockwise motion (you can turn either the pencil or the sharpener both will work). The shavings will begin to fall off and you keep turning until either you are satisfied with the sharpness of the tip or the shavings stop coming off. Make sure that you don't put more pressure on the pencil to make the shaving keep coming off because that will make the tip break and get stuck in the sharpener.
Pull the pencil out and clean the sharpener, it should be good to go. What I discovered was that if I had dropped a pencil a few times then the lead inside the pencil would be broken and this would cause the tip to break after sharpening. Treating your pencils nicely will keep them from breaking tips when you sharpen.
You can sharpen your
Swiss Army Knife is using a circular motion. Start by holding the blade
away from you at the proper angle. Run the blade of your Swiss Army Knife in a
clockwise motion on the stone until you have sharpened that side of the blade.
Turn the blade over and repeat with a counter clockwise motion.
I was searching for this solution then I found the manual in a draw so to help anyone else with the same problem the method is: Descaling should be carried out every 3 months. Fill the appliance to max. Dispense maximum size cup to a large cup. Add descaler to the cup then pour back into appliance. Dispense the mixture in the appliance into the cup and disgard. Continue until applance is at minimum water level. Empty the appliance then refill with water and run it through the machine and disgard until its at minimum then empty the appliance again. It should be ready for use. You can use 1ltr white (and only white) vinegar instead of the descaler and water mixture.
you can do it yourself with instructions from ehow.com. see below OR you can get it done at a small engine shop repair, where they fix the lawnmowers, slingtrimmers and chainsaws such as Makita, shtil or any other company that makes them. Hope this helps!
How to Sharpen Hedge Trimmer Blades
InstructionsThings You'll Need
Metal filer Eye protective goggles
Sharpen Your Shears
Place the hedge trimmers on a flat surface. Ensure that the blades are pointed away from your body.
Position a pair of pliers around the bolt on your hedge trimmers. Clamp the pliers on the bolt securely.
Twist the bolt counter-clockwise to remove it.
Separate the paired blades.
Hold one of the handles with the blade facing away from you. Slide a metal filer down the length of the blade until you reach the pointed end. Continue to sharpen the blade for a minute or two, and then do the same with the other blade.
Test the blades with a piece of paper. Hold a piece of paper next to the blade, and then try to cut the paper without using a lot of force. If the paper slices easily, then your blades are completely sharpened. If the blades do not cut the paper, continue to sharpen the blades with the metal filer, and repeat the paper test.
Hot running saws are either in need of cleaning the engine and inner case of accumulated sawdust and dirt with compressed air, or the engine is running lean which will result in severe engine damage if allowed to continue. Check the air cleaner, fuel filter, and muffler for any plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay of any kind. Make sure the chain is being properly lubricated and sharpened. Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness including those mounting it to the engine. Remove the spark plug and look for a light to medium tan color on the inner insulator. If burning white, it is not getting enough fuel. Have the two jet screws been adjusted? If so, turn both screws to CW stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but continues to 4-stroke. Proper adjustment is 4-stroking at speed, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This produces best power and least heat. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning , but the engine continues to run. Check chain oiling by holding the bar tip near a piece of cardboard and run the engine fast for couple of moments--the chain should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope some of this helps!
Your grinding stone stud is more than likely frozen try and lossen it up with a little penetrating oil take the sharpener off and work both stone back and forth untill they are both spinnig freely and remember do not apply either sharpening wheel on the knife for more than 5 seconds at a time you can burn the wheel and then it will never get sharp
I had to slide the dishwasher forward (undercounter installation)and tip it forward as far as possible. Water leaks onto floor, but then the internal controller seems to reset and the ASKO now works normally again. What kind of idiot would design a control module that does not incorporate a power-off interlock? FAIL FAIL FAIL - Bad, ASKO, Bad. Go to your room.
I may be having the same problem. My coffee grinder has had more leftover beans in it more and more this week, until finally today, possibly a quarter teaspoon passed through to the filter basket and the remaining beans were still very much beans. My first assumption was the blades.
