Bill the level is a pendulum type of device, therefore it is self leveling as long as it is within about 5 degrees of level. The pendulum has a lock for when it is not in use, make sure that you unlock this so the the unit can self level. It also has a flashing out-of-level indicator to warn you if you have not set the unit up within the 5 degrees of actual/real level. Paul.

The laser is pendulum hung on a gimble assembly with bearings for smooth movement. However, if it's been sitting for a very long time, there is every possibility the bearings are now either stuck or a flat spot in them. If you give the instrument a gentle shake, and the internals move, but still wont level accurately, then likely the bearings are no good anymore. If nothing moves, then the compensator lock is still engaged or something is jamming the internals. Often the rare earth magnets used to dampen the movement of the compensators degrade over time and the coating peels off and impedes the movement of the internals. Or iron filings get in and stick to the magnets, etc.

You'll need to take it in tho a garage that has a scan tool that can access and manually cycle the individual airsprings in the struts.

Metabo sbz 18v impuls drill has been sitting idol for years with a burnt out motor, have finally got round to fitting a new one. was working ok until I put the li-ion batteries in the charger. The charger...

If it is that old, the batteries are probably nimh (nickel metal hydride), not lithium, but either way, they will not be any good after sitting that long unused. Nimh have to be charged every couple of weeks due to self discharge, and lithium need to be charged every couple of months, but once a month is better. This is true if you use the drill or not, you have to take care of the batteries. They will have to be rebuilt or replaced. Oh, also make sure you are using the correct charger because if you use the wrong one, the batteries could catch fire and damage your home/garage/shop. Never leave a charger in use unattended. (Do not try to charge batteries and go to bed, very dangerous!) Good luck

Drill wont take a charge or operate, drill 9089 10mm type 3, 6 volt

9 times out of 10 problems like this are the result of a bad battery, in other cases it can be a bad charger. Without knowing more information I cannot give you an exact diagnosis. This is the first question I ask when approached with this issue, Has this drill been sitting for a period of time and if so, was the battery charged before it was put away? If Yes, the drill has been sitting and No, it was not charged are your answers than chances are your batteries are dead. This tool has Ni-Cd batteries that self discharge as they sit, eventually these batteries discharge until they have nothing left. In addition, if the battery is stored in a cold garage/shed will speed up this self discharge. I always tell people to think of their power tool batteries just lie a just like a car battery that dies if it sits too long without being started.
If you do not use your power tools on a regular basis it is recommended to fully charge the batteries before storing them or else they will self discharge until completely dead. Another option is the newer Lithium-Ion power tools batteries are not as temperature sensitive, have a much slower self discharge and can sit for 12-18 months before starting to loose their charge.
A replacement battery for this drill runs about $42 plus s/h and can be purchased directly from Black & Decker (1-800-4-DeWalt or My recommendation is to purchase a new drill. For around $40 - $50 you can buy a newer upgraded model with new battery and charger.
If you think your issue may be something else, please feel free to ask. If you feel I have helped explain or resolve your issue than please rate me. Thank you

How do you fix a dip and crack in garage concrete? Our garage has a crack and is dipping down.

The highway department fixes this by drilling a hole and then pumping concrete under the concrete until it lifts up.

I suggest you contact local concrete company to see who does this type of pumping. I've seen them fix driveways.

Don't know how much it costs.

How do I adjust the headlights on my 2006 dodge grand caravan

With the vehicle sitting on a level surface, open the hood. On top of each head lamp towards the rear of them you will see to T10 or T15 Torx or star shaped screw heads. Each head lamp can be adjusted from left to Right and up an down using these screws. Both headlamps may also have small levels on each of them.
I suggest that you adjust you lights in a garage or at dusk if you don't have a garage making sure that you have them both level or about waist high at 3 feet away. You should also have them facing straight or slightly (5 degrees) to the right. This avoids people flashing their lights at you.

Door worked, 2 hours later didn't- just hummed good weather

If it just hums when a button is pressed it could be the start capacitor. This sits next to the motor and is about 5 inches long and about as big around as a silver dollar.

If the bike has been sitting for 5 years the battery will be dead lights working does not mean it is good,fit a new one.A hydrometer is a good and cheap tool to check individual cells of a battery.about £7 or $12? from auto store.Allso carefully check and sand all earth cables ,and check cut out switches ,maybe on side stand As for the oil level if you have no dip stick you may have a sight glass on the side of the engine,stand bike upright, put wood under the sidestand on level surface,be very carefull not to drop it, leave to settle .if level correct the oil will be half way up the glass. if this does not help call back.
