My bht150 bostitch is jammed

First slide off the rubber grip This will expose a pin that you will need to remove. Remove the two bolts on top of the hammer with a 10mm wrench. These bolts hold the striker plate guide. Place the hammer in a vice to lightly compress the hammer head. Remove the allen head bolt located on the end of the head. This bolt holds the striker slid that strikes the staple. Remove the pin that you see that was under the rubber grip. Just tap with a punch and then you should be able to remove it with a small set of pliers. Now slid the enter assembly back just enough so that the jammed striker slid will come in contact with the striker guide face. Turn the hammer over and strike the top of the hammer on a piece of wood. This should free the slide and jammed staple. The staple and slide will come out. Take a file and deburr the slid and add a dab of grease to it. To reassemble, Attach the slide guide first, but leave it loose. The rest is reverse order. Hope this helps.

How often should I replace the rubber on my ping pong paddles?

It is inevitable that the rubbers on your paddles will eventually fade and need changing. The trick to knowing when is important. Visually, it is difficult to know. I suggest dragging a ping pong ball over the rubber from one side, across the middle, and over to the other side. If the ball starts to slide more easily towards the middle of the paddle, then you might want to consider replacing the rubbers.

What is the "Japanese" penhold ping pong paddle grip?

This grip is a variation to the "Chinese" penhold grip. Instead of curling your pinky, ring and middle fingers around the back of the blade, extend them so that the tips of your fingers are touching the rubber. This allows players to have a more powerful stroke than the "Chinese" pehold grip.

On a Sony rdr-gxd455 DVD recorder: Using a dvd+rw disc that just goes bad for no reason. This disc has never been erased. I am just adding to it. On other dvd+rw discs, they go bad after just erasing...

Try this. Switch to a very high quality blank media disc. The very best Tayio Yuden now under the JVC name. See if the same problem returns or is corrected. I personally have a high end SONY combo hard disk/dvd recorder. It gave me fits until I learned a few tricks. The first was the quality. You will be amazed how that can alter things. carries the blank media line. If you can't find that brand for RW discs try Sony's own brand.
Does your -R or +R discs give your problems too?
My second trick solves problems related to the uniform spinning of the media while recording (or playing back). Rubber parts that grip the disc for spin get glazed periodically and must be kept live and vibrant. There is only one method I found that really does the job. The rubber (usually donut shaped like a rubber washer) is found on the spindle that receives the disc to keep it gripped properly while it is spinning. If it is slipping, it usually messes up the disc permanently (during record). On play back of a recorded disc, it shows up as block noise and picture freeze.
If you can decase the machine and expose this area, that's ideal. On my machine, it's not that easy. My workaround is to have the disc tray in open mode. Pull the electrical cord on the unit, then with a thin flashlight, look in past the open tray. Most probably you'll have to slide the tray in part way to see the spindle. When you locate it, make note of the rubber part that would grip the dvd disc.
USE ONLY BERRYMANS LIQUID CARBURATOR CLEANER. You can buy this at automotive stores. Soak a Q-tip in the cleaner and then tape it onto the end of a very thin metal ruler. Extend the Q-tip to reach the rubber part and swab it as best you can slowly rotating the spindle to get all the way around the round rubber part. If needed, you may find that it evaporates quickly on your Q-tip and needs a second soaking to apply enough to break the glaze on the rubber.
If it's a glaze issue and you can get the chemical to wipe over the rubber, it should make your Q-tip blackend showing you it's working. Wait at least 5 - 10 minutes for a complete dry before you first slide your disc tray to it's home position and then plug the power cord back in.
****This chemical also does a great job revitelizing rubber wiper blades on a car.

DRZ250 2007. throttle sticks momentarily as you you throttle on. Cables lubed and move freely. Throttle tube action free and easy. Think problem linked to Carb internals. sticking slide???

To eliminate which is causing the sticking:
Remove cable lug from throttle tube and roll throttle back and forth with 1 finger. It should roll very easily.
Now with cable still undone from the tube, grasp the cable lug and pull it straight out and slowly feed it back into the cable sheath. If it sticks, then remove carb and top of carb. Leave slide attached to cable and pull the cable out by the lug like you did before. Watch the spring compress and extend as you slowly let it back out. if it sticks again this time, you mostly likely have a single broken strand that is snagging on the coil shaped section of the sheath. If not, then you have an issue with the slide not freely traveling in the tracks, or the main jet needle not smoothly reinserting into the hole of the main jet.

Back to the very first test. If the throtle tube stuck at any point with the cable unattached, remove the rubber grip and check for cracks or breaks in the plastic throttle tube. With the rubber grip removed, and tube still attached roll it again with one finger. If it moves easily, take a look at the large round part of the grip. was it rubbing on the housing of the brake reservior?
let me know what you find, well get it figured out. - astrawoid

To fold the Raider AT you need to turn the twist grip in the centre of the handle in the direction of the arrow. The secondary lock is located just below the rubber handle grip on the right side, slide this up. You can obtain instructions by emailing

How do i change the selector rod seal on a 350 box

Do you know what a Slide Hammer looks like? A long rod with a handle on the end, and a weight that slides on the rod. The weight hits against a stop made into the handle. At the end of the rod you attach various tools. You can attach a hook, or a threaded bolt, or screw, and many other attachments.

The reason I described a Slide Hammer, is that there is a miniaturized version of it, to remove hard to get at seals. At the end of this tool it has two 'fingers'. (Spring steel pieces of hooked flat metal) These fingers are forced through the rubber part of the seal, and the fingers spread out. They catch the metal outer ring of the seal.

Then the weight on this small slide hammer is slid hard against the handle, and after a few taps it withdraws the seal.

This link is to illustrate one companies version of this tool,

Kind of pricey if a person just wants to use it one or two times! However it is the proper professional way.

There is another method that you may want to consider. Not a professional method, but if done correctly, it can save you in a pinch. (And also save $80 to $100 for the above tool!)

With this method you have to use care not to scratch the selector rod shaft, nor accidentally scratch the bore of the transmission, where the seal goes into.
A sturdy pick tool with a curved hook end is used. You carefully feed the tip of the curved hook, through the rubber portion of the seal. Then you clamp a pair of vise grips onto the pick tool towards the end of the tool. (Opposite end of the curved hook)

Making - Sure the tip of the hook, is resting against the middle of the metal part of the seal, you tap the pair of vise grips with a Small hammer. Tap the vise grips so that they are pulling against the tool, pulling the seal out.

Use the tool to pull out on the seal's metal ring on one side, then slide the tool over to the opposite side, and start tapping again. Keep working around the seal, until you work it out far enough to grab it with pliers, or needle nose vise grips.

Best way to get grips off

If grips are rubber, you may try using compressed air to help them slide off.

Installing new grips

I use hair spray. -Cut the old ones off -Soak the clip-on (left) w/hairspray -Quickly slide grip on and align. Once it is aligned allow it to dry. -Soak throttle tube (right) with hairspray, slid grip on, align, and allow to dry. I guess this is probably a bad time to tell you about the R1 throttle tube (or BRG throttle tube) mod. It's a bigger throttle tube which means less twisting to go WOT. Late model Gixxers are notorious for a long twist to go WOT.
