My needle keeps falling out. I unscrewed the set screw, put the new needle in, then it falls out. I had just taken out an old needle by unscrewing the set screw and didn't touch anything else. Help

Be sure to unscrew the set-screw and extra turn and then insure you are pushing the needle all the way up before tightening it. Could also mean the set screw is stripped...

How to release dremel tip .already got screw it wont release

Press release button and hold down while unscrewing bolt. Continue to hold button and unscrew bolt until tip is loose enough to pull out if it still won't come out unscrew all the way, take bolt off and pull out tip with channel locks. It just got jammed in when tightening because diameter is probably a little wider

How do i remove bathroom sink drain plug?

Usually, that only works with tub drains. Look under the sink, at the drain pipe, about 3 inches below the bottom of sink. On the back side (away from the door) you should see a knurled nut with a metal rod coming from it. unscrew the nut, then pull the metal ball/rod combo out. This will release the drain plug. To reassemble, fiddle with it until you get the rod through the hole in drain stem, then push ball into it's socket, and replace knurled nut. Tighten enough that it doesn't leak, but not much tighter than that, or you'll lock up the drain plug and have to loosen it a bit.

I can't remove the tub drain to unclog it. tried vinegar and baking soda but need to remove to unclog. How to do, can't see a set screw. the drain is a pull up and turn to open/close. HELP! i'm showering...

I will do my best to explain this ---- the little button on top of the drain cap unscrews counter-clockwise,, I have found it best to push down the drain cap with one one hand ( very hard down )and with your other hand turn the button counter-clockwise. if it still will not budge then you might need to get a pair of channel locks and a pair of pliers and get it that way. now as soon as you get the button off -- the center spindle unscrews using a large flatblade screwdriver,, unscrew it and it will all come off. if you have anymore troubles - please feel free to write back and I will do my best to walk you through any steps.
