zerkalo: OK. How do I remove the small incandescent light bu[lb] from out my lava lamp? That biatch be stuck, but good.


Step one: tap bulb gently with hammer until shattered
Step two: jam a potato up in that biatch
Step three (optional): go ahead and plug it in, just to see what happens. Replace potato and fuses as necessary.
Step four: rotate potato to remove bulb end from socket.

PhelanWolf: Protip: if you break off an extractor in a bolt, use a carbide tipped masonry bit to drill it out.
Source: I've broken off several extractors in badly rusted bolts, especially 1/4"/6mm and smaller, I tried cobalt bits, they cut a bit but quickly dulled, carbide tipped masonry bit has worked every time :)


I may try this. I have vertical air compressor that one of the boys knocked over while pulling on the hose to bring the compressor closer to where he was kneeling down and working (yes, he tried to drag the vertical compressor closer to himself by strategically pulling the hose...). When it fell over, the pipe that connects the regulator to the tank broke. I told the boy over the phone where I had some plumbing-style extractors...and he broke one off in the pipe thread that remained in the compressor's threaded welded-in bung hole (I said bung hole - huh huh). So I decide to start by drilling out the broken extractor with some cobalt bits. I was into the extractor about half way (maybe .4") and on my third cobalt bit and then just when I was thinking it's about time to move up to a bigger bit before this 1/8" bit breaks...I broke it. So now I've got a piece of cobalt bit firmly wedged inside a extractor bit wedged inside a soft steel pipe section that probably should have just been drilled out in the first place.

BolloxReader: Your Average Witty Fark User: Protip: if any of this ad was news to you, turn in your man card and GTFO.

Yeah! How dare someone not know something useful!

Do you know you stupid you sound? Most people I know don't even have garages, much less workbenches. They don't have shop classes at any school I'm familiar with. Where do you recommend Real Men get their information other than internet articles and videos?


Oh I dunno, I had a father who taught me all of this shiat by the time I was 8. He also taught me common sense.

You sound like the product of a single mother household. Sad.

Not bad, but I'd have gone with something like "you sound like a pampered little shiat whose daddy sent him to a useless liberal arts college to major in medieval French poetry."

Remember, you want to troll as many people as possible, not just the target in your sights. BolloxReader might take offense at the single-mom thing, but you won't be hurting actual children of single-moms, who probably regard themselves as super-tough. So that's a wasted opportunity.

Also, between this and your original post, you're pushing the "daddy taught me what it means to be a man" thing a bit too hard. It leaves you open to speculation as to what else might have been pushed a bit too hard in your past, if you follow me.

/see what I did there?

The question isn't, did I see what you did there, it's, do I care?

Not really. Point taken, though.
