Your post is rather general, but I will see what I can do for you:

My guess is that the camera and the subject are not lined up properly to produce a square image. The same thing happens when you point the camera up at a tall building. Since the top of the building is farther away it appears smaller in the image, like the buildings taper as they get taller.

When taking a picture of a square object, you need to have the surface of the object parallel to the body of the camera in order for it to appear square in the image. Additional, most of the time, you will also have to shoot directly at the middle of the object as well.

Small amounts of this distortion can be corrected in PhotoShop.

How to tighten wheel that keeps coming loose

knowing the type of vehicle would be nice
nuts that keep coming loose indicate the hubs are side specific with left hand and right hand threads
if you have a left hand side hub on the right hand side or vica versa , that will be the reason
next check the rim stud area
square shouldered holes in aluminium wheels require a steel washer first and rims that are tapered at the studs require tapered nuts

How to Identify the Type of Bottom Bracket on a Schwinn IC Pro

Video about Identifying the Bottom Bracket on a Schwinn IC Pro Bike

  • This video will help easily determine what kind of bottom bracket you need for your Schwinn IC Pro
  • You see in the video there are four available
    • The first one showed is the OEM style bottom bracket, on both ends it is a square tapered shaft bottom bracket
    • We offer a Sportsmith bottom bracket kit including the crank arms and crank bolts
      • This is also a square tapered shaft bottom bracket
    • We also offer two ISIS style bottom brackets
      • One is a 1 7/8" diameter
      • The other is 1 3/8" diameter
      • As you can see in the video these both have a round splined shaft
      • To identify which ISIS bottom bracket you need you will want to remove the crank arm and measure the hole in the frame that the bottom bracket mounts into
  • You will have to determine if you need a round splined shaft or a square tapered shaft
  • If you do need the round splined shaft you will have to know if you need the 1 3/8" or the 1 7/8" diameter bottom bracket
  • Knowing these things can reduce the frustration of buying the wrong parts and shorten down time greatly

Need help to get rear wheels off 1999 Huskee riding mower

Most are a simple construction. Remover the outer dust cap with a screwdriver. Inside you will see a slit pin and a large washer. striaghten and remove the split pin. remove the washer. The washer holds in a tapered keyway ( a sliver of square steel profile with a taper to nothing. or sometimes just an oblong square section) This sits in a slot cut into the drive shaft. You can remove the wheel off the axle but be sure to locate and keep the keyway because if this is not replaced the axle will turn but the wheels won't.

2006 Avalanche 2.0, hearing click-clack noise coming from crank under heavy pedaling- bearing noise???

It might be the bottom bracket bearing, but it is more likely to be the attachment of the crank arms to the spindle. There is a square hole in the crank arm that is tapered to fit tightly onto the the tapered square end of the bottom bracket spindle. You have to tighten the the nut (usually under a dust cover about the size of a quarter that you unscrew with a screwdriver). Both sides of course. It usually requires a thin-wall socket, or a special wrench designed for this purpose such as the one shown here. good luck.

I have difficulty with regular jams regardless of brad length. Thoughts?

Depending on type of work/wood the finer the nail, results in increased jams. Eighteen gauge and finer experience more jams than say 15 gauge. Fine gauge nails also suffer from square cut tip. I believe that if the nails were pointed (like Senco nails ) they would more likely drive true. Jaming can be decreased by selecting the correct nailer for particular work. Dimentional lumber and hardwoods tend to increase problems compared to quality plywood or non wood trim materials. If you experience jaming with any type of wood then time to look at driver for possible problem. Check driver for bent or worn tip. Driver blade can be dressed square on grinder. Some drivers have a slight angle/taper ground into tip on the side that faces the rails. This taper continues up the blade about 1/2 inch. The taper will prevent the driver from hitting the second nail. On really hard woods, try drilling a fine pilot hole to produce best results. Good luck

Cannot get clear close-ups

Recommend not using flash. The first thing is that your subject should be well lit. Try placing it on a lighter background with good lighting around it. Also recommend using a tripod to keep the camera steady, and setting and using the camera's timer to take the photo (this also helps keep the camera steady). The closest auto-focused macro shot that the S200 takes is around 1 foot from the subject. Depress the shutter button halfway to verify that the subject is in focus (one of the three squares on the LCD should turn green on the subject). Next depress the shutter button all the way to take the photo.
