SOURCE: scratch on ultra bright aluminum wheel

It sounds like you need to polish the wheel to get the original shine back.

Note that this is a labor intensive process, especially if the wheels have a lot of nooks and crannies. It's also be complicated by the fact that you sprayed clearcoat on the wheels, since you'll have to sand through the clearcoat before you can polish the bare aluminum.

Start by cleaning the wheel with a degreaser, such as Simple Green.

Next, get an assortment of wet-dry sandpaper and a small tub of water. Soak the sandpaper in the water for about 5 minutes before you start, and then frequently dip the paper in the water to keep it wet and lubricated.

Start with 800 grit, and lightly sand the areas that are scratched. (You don't need to sand areas that are already shiny.) This will leave the surface looking scratched up and dull. Move up to 1200 grit and repeat. Finish with 2000 or 2500 grit. Be sure to remove all cut marks from each previous grit before moving on to the next - any scratches that are apparent now will show in the final product.

After sanding with 2000 grit, the surface will still look dull. You can now start polishing. Use a drill-mounted polisher such as the Mother's Powerball (www.mothers.com) loaded with a metal polishing compound such as Mother's Billet Metal Polish. Using slow speed, spread polish over the entire surface of the wheel. Then, use slightly higher speed to polish wheel, keeping the drill constantly moving to achieve an even finish over the entire surface. When the polish turns black, stop, and wipe it off with a clean, soft cloth. Repeat until the entire surface has an even finish. At this stage, it will look shiny, but it will still be covered in "micro-scratches."

The final stage of polishing should be done by hand. Put a latex or nitrile glove on your hand, and pick up a little polish on your fingers. Polish the wheel with your gloved finger, rubbing in small circles until the polish turns black. Wipe away the polish with a clean cloth, then buff it to a shine with a second clean, soft cloth.

At this point the wheel should be fully polished. If you wish to, you can spray it with a clearcoat to protect the finish. Make sure all traces of polish are removed and the wheel is clean before you spray with clearcoat. Instead of clearcoating, you may choose to wax the wheel, which will give it a protective coat, but make it easier to polish the wheels in the future.

Again, this is a labor intensive process, and it requires a good deal of elbow grease. For more info, check out this link:

SOURCE: I have a scratch on the imaging drum of my OKI C711 printer. The green coating has been scratched off of a small area. Is it possible to repair this without replacing the drum?

Hello,

Sorry but no. The coating is a Teflon material that is applied under high heat. The drum will need to be replaced.

Hi Tom,

I'm sorry you're having difficulty.

It is a very difficult thing to try and diagnose something like this without an inspection of some kind and I wouldn't want to speculate on the cause of the noise.

The only option is to speak to Dyson directly again. Please give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Best wishes,

Allan

How does a bladeless fan work


The air is drawn in by a fan in the base and then directed up into a ring. It comes out of a crack all around the ring and passes over a shape like that of an aircraft wing. Industrial designer Sir James Dyson named his fan the Air Multiplier
