Swivel wheels won't stay straight and the vac just skids.


Do you find that the wheels are jammed and won't rotate, thus causing the vac to go to theleft or right or just have to be dragged along forward?Try wd40 to see if it will allow the wheels to rotate freely.

I don't know how to turn the ho engine on


You use the train controller. Set the control to zero for off and then rotate it through the scale up to one hundred for full speed. Use the sliding direction button above the speed control to select direction of the train. As far as I know there is no on/off switch on the loco itself.

Bachmann train


It sounds like rather than disconnecting the current the wheels are shorting the track? Does it spark a lot when the back wheels are placed on the track? If so I would suggest the insulation on the wheel axle has broken down.

My G Scale James derails the front wheels when approaching LGB facing points at any speed. How do I overcome this problem?


I had a similar problem with a HO scale motor. I tightened my front truck just a little bit to hold it closer to the chasis. I had to sacrifice running it at full speed but it worked. Or you can try replacing the truck it might work. Never owned G scale not sure if you can.

1: make sure all track connections are tight.

or a track eraser.

Need a manual for a sears/craftsman model #103.24300 bandsaw


Any particular reason? If general settings problem, please follow this advice:

Brand of bandsaw is of no importance, problem is... I assume that problem is with regulation of the blade motion. Please follow these instructions, I posted them previously for another member, they apply to any bandsaw in existence, regardless of brand, manufacture, age or look...

I love bandsaws, they are one of best and most universal woodworking machines, used as well in food and metal industries.

Now, what you should know about bandsaw that it have several points of regulations and all of them must be adjusted correctly. Basic "anatomy" of bandsaw is that it have body, in it there is housed driving wheel (bottom) and tension wheel (top), both of these are protected by rubber "tyre" usually crowned, that allow for better self adjustment and protect teeth on the band.

Switch machine off and remove power plug from the socket.

Start with tension, open covers, retract top (above the table) and bottom (below the table) guides so blade is not touching the rear bearing or side slides.

1. rotate top wheel and see where blade is wandering, regulate tension and tilt on the wheel till band position itself on the centre of the top wheel, is rotating freely without wandering, and cuttin edge is off the wheel or rubber and do not touch the wheel or raiser.
2. cut strip of paper and slide top guide towards the blade till bearing touch blade through the paper (paper thickness is about correct distance of bearing to the blade), allowing paper to be slided out without tension. lock bearing guide in.
3. insert paper on internal side of the blade and slide internal slide guide block till you can only pull the paper out, lock the slider.
4. repeat previous (3) operation on external guide block and after you slide paper out, lock it in position as well.
5. manually rotate the tension wheel, should operate freely, without wandering, without touching bearing or side slides.
6. repeat step 2 to 5 on the bottom guide
7. close the covers
8. adjust hight of the top guide suitable to cut , allowing about 2 finger breaths above the cut piece.
9. connect power, switch on the bandsaw and switch off, after it stop, check for tension, switch on and make test cut.

This general rule applies to all bandsaw, regardless of brand, make, vintage. Do remember that this is not a toy, it will cut through, wood, metal and your fingers...

Do remember, that these operations must be performed every time when you change the blade, do not forget to use bit of silicone or teflon spray if you cut very sappy or green wood, do not press and force, allow blade to slide and cut, use protection screen and googles, you have only two eyes and there are no spares...

If you have problem with your bandsaw, not related to adjustments, please do not hesitate to ask further questions, let us know how you get along with this info.

Have a 1996 crown vic and the horn did work now it doesnt work along with the cruise control my fuese under the dash are good but not mark


If the horn nor the steering wheel mounted cruise control switches work, it is likely that the problem is the contacts that are in the steering wheel and the steering column that send the signal for these switches. You have a circular type contact that rotates with your wheel, and a stationary circular contact on you steering column that the steering wheel fits over. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!

Need rotation direction


Most are counterclockwise rotation. If you have the fly wheel the spokes double as cooling fins for the pump. The rotation will be blowing on the pump regardless which way the wheel is mounted. If you have no fly wheel then all I can say is all the Northstar pumps I've ever seen are counterclockwise rotation.

Screws on my Sears track drive snowblower unthread themselves.


Back wheels have a gear that connects to the drive chain. on each side. those spin.
The front ones which are Idlers do not spin as the idler wheel as a bushing in it that allows free motion on the shaft without resistance. Use a nylock nut with Locktight for starters. The try that.

Hope this helps. -Jeff anchorage small engine repair.
