Good grief!

We had our terrace done by a local guy, for heat and waterproof. Look in the newspaper small ads for, iirc, "German technology." We have had it done twice. Even through November/December of last year, we had no water come through the roof (it came in the doors instead), despite the fact that it looks ready for another coat.

Looking for a DC power connector (male) to plug into this type of connector. Where can I get it ?

Also ok if I can cannibalize something (like from a faulty equipment)

It looks like a FM T connector. You should get a connector or solution at any car accessory shop where they install car stereos etc

If you know its technical name, or have a lot of patience searching, you could try the RS site. They probably have just about every electrical component known to man ...and maybe a few only known to woman! .

Finally bought myself a 46 piece 3/8'' socket set to work on my motorcycle & car DIY itch.
Picked it up from www.industrybuying.com & it seems like a good deal.

The idea is now to shrug off the laziness during the weekend and change the engine oil of my Honda Unicorn (to start with) which has been lying un-utilised for a year now.
Hopefully this shiny new "toy" will provide the incentive.

If you are looking forward to work on your motorcycle, then adding a 1/2" socket set would be an advantage when the torque required on the fasteners are taken into account.

My car's airbox had a rather large crack and decided to give feviquik cold weld a try.

Crack :

Feviquik Cold weld. Consists of a cold weld powder and normal feviquik.

Tools for a DIYer-img_20160227_164348001.jpg

All done. I had taped the backside with masking tape since the crack was large as per instructions. Some of the feviquik seeped out and caused the tape to permanently stick. Sigh.

View from the inside. I filed off the excess on the top after 10 mins so that the air filter can sit flush.

Verdict : Total VFM for 25rs. The feviquik tube will not suffice for the entire powder bottle so buy and keep extra tubes. Barely used 20% of the powder for this.

Got a pair of 3 ton jack stands from Snapdeal for Rs.2424/- (for the pair). The advertised one was Torin Iron Torin.

On receipt of the package, I got the following model T43001 (no mention of the brand Torin)

The jack is heavy, the build quality is good with the added safety feature of the locking pin (which is not there in the advertised product). I think it is a Chinese make and since the thing will do it's purpose, decided not to go for a hustle with Snapdeal. I can demand a replacement on which I will get a pair with the name Torin on it (obviously made and sticker-ed in China)

Does this work on metal? I want to fix a small handle on a metal door and was thinking of gluing instead of drilling holes for screws.

Can you share the link of the actual listing?

I think you will be better off with JB Weld. I used Araldite to fix my broken ORVM assembly but it broke again. At that time someone suggested that JB Weld. But it was not available locally at that time.
