The back of a remote control is sticky try every cleaner it does not go away how do we take care of this I can send the picture the only thing we do they use is a paint thinner

Paint thinner will melt the plastic. Try WD40 for solvent type sticky, soap and water for organic type sticky or corn starch if you have in fact damaged the plastic.

Epoxy floor is not drying in some places it has been a few days still has a few spots not drying Paint was mixed well what can I do?

although its not widely known , but two part epoxy paints have a resting period they need to have after there mixed vigorsly together , the label should denote how long this time should be , its usually about five minutes or so , this rest is nessacary for the two chemicals to adsorb into one another (prevents bubbles too), floors that don't harden , well theres one sure fire way to fix em , use solvent and remove non hardened paint with old rags (lots of em) but sometimes if only slightly sticky then you can go over them with a fresh batch (using proper mixing methods ) the new paint will encapsulate the old paint and harden over it

I have a BSA sweet 17, 2X7X35 all The black paint on the Tube has turned really sticky, when you touch the scope the paint gets all over your hand.

The coating that BSA used on their scopes reacts badly with certain airborne oils and softens rubs off and looks scabby
Only thing to do is to rub the rest of the coating off with high acetone nail polish remover

I have an older ETX Astro Telescope or ETX spotting scope. A small rectangular mirror has come loose in the main body of the telescope. It appears undamaged. Is there a manual that shows me how to place...

This is a known issue with the older ETX scopes. You can use silicon sealant or a small amount of hot glue -- and just put the mirror back on it's small platform.

However you might need to disassemble the rear of the scope to do this. See this web site for instructions on disassembly.

Elevation is turned all the way up and at 50ytards

this is a common fault with fitting cheep mounts on your rifle,,
a nikon scope is realy for "air rifles" but having sead that there very strong scopes, i have 4 of them all fitted on full bore rifles,,308,(7.62) .303 british enfield, .22-250 and a 357 mag rifle? and none of them have shook apart yet! and i found that on a full bore they do shoot low,,,to get over this problem you could change the mounts to the ajustable type witch is pricy,,or a cheep way out is to pack the bottom of the rear scope mount out with a strip of 35mm film,,(the rear being the end you look throw),you only need to life the rear end of your scope 25th of an inch to rise its point of impact by 6" inchs at 100 yds as the nikon scope is one click (1 thou of an inch) = 1/4 of an inch at 100 yds so 25 thou will raze it by 6.25 inches (- bullet drop!) just undo the scews that hold down the rear of the scope and slip a bit of old 35mm film under the scope then nip the scews back up again and try it out,,,if its still low put in a bit more packing,,,but you can only get about 4 bits of film in before its likley to bend the scope tube!!! mind you with 4 bit under it you will be shooting at the moon??? its much cheeper that ajustable mounts,, all my scopes are packed out like this and they dont creep or slide or loos point of aim even after 300 rounds in a day?

I have an "older model" Maytag dishwasher (WU202). Can the panel be changed to a different color?

Hi, W/D here.

Your panel may be able to be changed. Look at the top of your panel for a trim piece held in place with screws.. Remove the screws and try to slide your panel front up and out. If it will come out like this, you can change your color very easily. In fact, some dishwashers came with 2 panels with each side painted a different color (harvest gold or avocado green anyone?). If your panel will not come apart, all is not lost....
I have seen panel covers available on EBay, in the dishwasher section. Some are sheetmetal and some were like sticky backed foil. If you're going stainless, this might be the route to take.
If you are artistic, you can mask and paint the panel with either a spray enamel, or one of the newer plastic paints. Not crafty? remove the door and take to an auto painter. I know for a fact that most of them will paint a refrigerator (ahem), so a dishwasher can be done as well.
Hope that this at least sparked a few ideas! Best regards, --W/D--

Rubber coating breaking down

Try it with rubbing alcohol first - just keep it away from the optics, and you may get lucky. The only thing that ever seems to work with these is an abrasive cream cleaner (jif/cif or similar) - you just have to use lots of cream and be careful not to polish the optics - unfortunately the stickiness will come back quicker than before though. I haven't tried myself, but i have heard that once you have carried out the cream cleaner routine, you can paint the unit - ask your hardware shop what sort of rubbery paints they have - ideally oil based and not acrylic. It wont last as long as the original finish or like quite as good, but it should stop the stickiness for a while at least. Try and keep your binoculars out of the sun - most of the stickiness is either caused by that, or contact with a damaging chemical such as most insect repellents, or petroleum products. Hope this helps :)
