Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

I have an inexpensive 1 qt. cap. gun that ha worked well for many years. When using it on my last project, toward the end, it started being sporatic like it was spitting the finish. After cleaning I tried to run some water through it and it wasn't picking up anything out of the canister.

Paint chips in my bikes gas tank how can I clean it out?

Hi, Anonymous you have 2 options either do it yourself or take it to a professional radiator shop. There are many home remedies out there on the internet and Youtube some are ok while others are a waste of time, you only want to do this once and have a finished product that will last forever. In my 50 years of working on bikes I have cleaned many tanks, I have come up with a procedure that requires the minimum amount of time and money but produces optimum results, obviously, the severity of the contamination will dictate the necessary time it will take to achieve the desired end results of forever and no leaks and the best insurance policy is "PREP!!!PREP!!!PREP!!!PREP!!!PREP" and now for the kit, I recommend "POR-15" or "Red-Kote" stay away from any "Kreem" products as I have had issues with peeling in the past and you can get them from Amazon or eBay now for the fun part:
1. Drain and remove the gas tank.
2. Remove the cap-petcock-hoses and plug or tape the openings (not cap)
3. Insert water hose a let run for 3 minutes to remove loose primer flakes
4. Drain 1/2 of the tank replace gas cap shake like a martini for 30 seconds and pour out the remaining water and let air dry.
5. Pour in 1 cup of nuts-bolts-washers-ball bearings etc. and shake like a martini for 1 minute then empty contents, repeat the process until all contamination is removed, flush with water and use compressed air to remove water residue and vapor to minimize a micro-thin layer of surface rust that will start to form almost immediately so it's a good idea to start the installation of the sealing kit asap.
6. Follow kit directions precisely as indicated and you will end up with a finished project that you can be confident in and proud of.

How can you crate setup file or .exe using QT platform

We are developing software but we are unable to run in others PC/Computer. As we know that QT is Platform Independent and Open source Software, which is use Nokia to develop Mobile Application.

  • Qt
  • Setup creator
  • libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll
  • mingwm10.dll
  • QtGuid4.dll
  • QtCored4.dll

  • When you start a project then automatically qt creates 2 folders within main Directory. One is "Debug" and another is "release".
  • If we are want to run application in other PC then we need ".dll" files and combined them.
  • Open My Computer and go to the "Installation Drive" where QT is installed.
  • Find out the Main Directory of the QT. If you install in "c:" then go to the c drive and open "qt" folder and get a directory name as "2010.01"
  • When you open "2010.01", then you can see another directory as "qt" open it.
  • You click on Search option from the "Standard Button" bar and type the libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll file and search it. When you find it copy the file and paste into your Project Directory's "Debug" folder. Do same things for another three ".dll" files.
  • After that you can run your application by the .exe file. Does not need to open Qt and open your project then run.
  • Now you can simply copy the project Directory and paste into other PC and open Directory and run it.
  • Or you can create a shortcut on the desktop as others software. From where you can run it by Click.

Deploy and Packaging:

If you want to create a setup file as other software, need to install it. Then -
  • First download a file "icinst", it's free. After that install it.
  • After that open it from start programs and windows will be come where you select your Project Directory and do "Next".
  • You can create a License Agreement as others software.
  • Do as per the given Instruction.

Note: Before create a setup file you must be collect all dll files and paste in "debug" folder

How do you open and put in staples?

Hi Bob:
There are slightly different systems depending on the gun, but the principle is consistent.
If you hold the gun and a stick of spaples so that the staples are lined up with where they come out of the gun, that is the position that they have to be placed in the gun. There will be a spring device that pushes the stick of staples towards the discharge slot.
At the end of the gun farthest from the discharge slot, in line with where the staples will fit, there will probably be a cap with a couple of bent tabs next to slots. Push the cap towards the discharge slot and then sideways so that the tabs are under the slots. The cap and spring assembly will then slide out, the new stick os staples goes in, and the spring, plunger, and cap get re-installed.
Your stapler may not be exactly like this, but its the principle you'll need to follow for whatever stapler you're working with.

Flush with fluid surpenion system why remove heating hose

surpenion system.? wow no year stated !!

what are you doing ,just a flush? of engine coolant

my guess you are reading the steps. and wonder why we do it fully

there are 2 flush ways. 1 is poor way and way 2 is ASE.

i will not mention shop way with the $10,000 machine.

1: poor way, open drain bottom rad, run water from rad cap

until drain runs clear. (ok on a 2 year old car. sure)

2 pro way.

he back flushs all cooling system parts and makes sure all flow good.

1: RAD (end to end)



4: THE BYpass hoses are flowing good.

other? sure. depends on engine option (size)

on my cars , IR pyro gun the rad tubes as a last check. (hot)

to be sure all tubes are working... ask.... a $15 tool , like no other.

it a choice,

After 7 years working properly, the event button has stopped working. There is no way to start the load in manual, or to change the program... What can I do?

You posted under EH40 Intermatic programmable timer.
EH40 Manual:

1) EH40 uses size A battery. Replace battery.
2) Reset the timer: Press and hold reset button for several seconds
3) Contact Intermatic because they are aware of specific problems with specific timers
4) Other folk have reported EH40 and EH10 last about 3 years.
EH40 has 1 year limited warranty.
I test timers: 7 years is reasonable run for inexpensive electronic time switch.
5) For longer lasting timer, consider Next Generation: battery is replaced every 8 years

Why does my TV have a red shadow on all the people and words. i've only had it 4 1/2 yrs

It sounds like the red gun is off. Your tv uses three guns(red,green and blue) to make the picture. sometimes one of these guns shifts a little and the colors get messed up and there are shadows because the gun is still trying to make the image, it just doesnt line up. This is a pretty inexpensive problem that can be fixed by most any tv technician for a small fee. If your pretty confident in your electronics know how, google adjusting guns and your tv and that should yield something.

Start up problem when hot or cold

well you didnt give me much to go on here but im gonna try to be psychic.. Ha ha joking! No the car is a 2002 model if its six years old. So im assuming it would not have a distributor cap and rotor button and your timing should not be out of the margin of error. So for you it is really just a one shot deal with the info you have provided. The quickest way to find you a fix is take the car and have a diagnostic test run on it. The cost for this is generally $30 dollars or so. So if i were you that would be my first move. The computer will tell the technician exactly which component on your car isnt operating correctly, and hopefully for you it will be inexpensive.. Hope you try this first it will really save ya alot of guess work.
