1. Wood or metal frame on Doublewide?

Ask your customer if he is really looking for a modular, They are on wood. If he's looking for a manufactured home with wood skirting, he wo not find one. Wood has too many disadvantages to be used as skirting. Most skirting, today, is vinyl, or a fake stone of some type.Older, used homes may have metal, but no much any more.

2. How do I reverse the direction in which my door opens? It is a Metal frame with 82" high six panel door.?

reverse the frame , but doors are meant to open in , in case of emergencies the door can be kicked in

3. how do i cut out metal frame windows when the nail flange is covered with siding?

Since the metal frame is coming out anyway when you find the section that is nailed in cut the frame on both sides of the nail. Remove the loose frame and bend the left over part away from the frame and use a reciprocating saw to cut the nail under the siding. Not the easiest thing to do but it beats damaging the siding.


We purchased the Intex metal frame pool last summer. It was very simple to assemble. We have four boys ages 17, 14, & twins 11. The younger boys loved it. The only problem we have experienced is the floor of the liner seems very thin and has gotten several holes in it. All were repairable with an underwater patch kit. As for being level, our is not. It is ever so slightly off. It can still be used. Overall, it was a good investment and I will probably keep it up for a few more years. Until we win the lottery and put the inground pool in. Wish me luck. :).

5. Is 4 inches too sloped for an intex metal frame pool to handle?

It wo not collapse. If the skimmer is half out of the water you will need to correct it. Sorry, only one way to do it

6. what can i do to stop my sons metal frame bunk beds from creaking?

have you tried putting some WD40 on the spots that squeak?

7. What would be the best way for me to build a portable green house?

Long term. 4x8 sheets of Plexiglas's. On a screw or bolt together metal frame. Build like a shed and number the parts for ease of take down and reassemble. You would need a door and vent fan as well and ground stakes to keep it form moving in the wind

8. How do I install an air conditioner onto a metal frame?

hard stuff. browse in search engines like google. that could actually help!

9. metal frame or quick set pool??? PLEASE HELP?

I prefer the quick set. A family member had the metal frame and yes, you can leave it up, but because you leave it up it wears faster

10. I have a 12' x 36" round metal frame Intex pool. What is the amount/dosage for Bleach, Borax and Baking Soda?

This is not like vitamins. there are no daily dosages. This is more like medicine for your child, you use what is needed when it is needed. The wrong stuff or wrong amount only make your water "sick". Go to a local pool supply and get a proper test kit. Ask how to use it and understand it. Also ask about the proper chemicals to use based on the readings from your test kit. You will enjoy your pool if you take care of your water.

Why Can the Metal Frame in the Process of Metal Processing Is More Difficult?
The shade of a tree Sheltering under a tree just sounds like common sense, but actually it's all about photosynthesis. A sun shade helps keep the rays off, but the heat gets absorbed in the shade and some of it comes through, which will warm you up. On the other hand, a canopy of leaves on a tree absorbs the same energy but then uses it to make the sugars it needs to grow. All this means less heat is passed through to you and you end up staying much cooler. The dribbling teapot To avoid the frustration of making a pot of tea, pouring a cup and finding half of it has dribbled on to the table, apply a bit of science. The definitive French research on this subject has three solutions. First, pour the tea more quickly, as more speed of the liquid means less dribble. Second, teapots with a sharp lip on the spout, like metal ones, dribble less. Finally, apply a bit of wax to the inside bottom of the spout lip to create a water-repelling surface. No shocks The static shock you get when you clamber out of your car is about 30,000 volts of electricity. It sounds a lot, but aside from surprise and pain, it won't cause any damage. It happens because of your clothes and the material on the car seat. As you swivel around to get out, the motion generates a huge build-up of static electricity. To avoid the shock, before you get up from the seat, place your hand on the metal frame of the door to discharge the static. Tearless onions Onions make you cry because a bunch of chemistry starts as soon as you slice them. The result is a gas that floats to your eyeballs and turns on pain nerves, making you cry. To avoid tears you need to stop the gas getting to your eyes. To do this, cut them quickly using a sharp knife and put the onions into a lidded saucepan to trap the gas, or switch on an extractor fan. Otherwise, wear swim goggles. Clearing the fog Do not turn your heaters on full blast to demist your car windscreen on a cold morning. Since the car is cold, and the heaters take time to warm up, this won't help. Instead, turn the air conditioning up high, directed towards the windscreen. This not only cools the air, but dries it as well. Cold, dry air will demist the window more quickly than hot air that's not yet hot. Keeping it fresh Never put bread in the fridge. The flour in bread is almost entirely made up of a chemical called starch, which can take a number of slightly different forms depending on the temperature you keep it at. In a fridge at 5ºC, the starch changes and sucks up and locks away some of the water in the bread. So if you store bread in the fridge it may keep longer, but it will taste stale more quickly. Either store it at room temperature or freeze it. Oxygen and wine As soon as you open a bottle of wine, the oxygen in the air starts a chemical process that turns the alcohol into vinegar. How quickly this happens depends on things like the colour of the wine and the temperature at which you keep the bottle. But once opened, you have a week at most to drink it. To delay this process, put the bottle in the fridge as the cold slows down the chemical reaction. Make everything taste better If you want to give anything you eat a rich, mouth-filling, meaty taste, add a bit of umami. We're taught that there are four basic sensations of taste - sweet, sour, bitter and salt - but there are at least five. The fifth taste is called umami and is found in tomatoes, cheese, mushrooms, fish, meat and Marmite. - Daily Mirror
Riding Out an Electrical Storm
We delved into a few urban driving legends last week. Let's pick apart two more: the safest place to be during a lightning storm is in your car, and red cars attract more speeding tickets than less-colorful vehicles.You've undoubtedly heard this saying. But you might not know the real reason why it's safer to be in a car than being outside during a storm."It's not because of the rubber tires, as people often claim," said Daniel Davis, a physicist who narrates the Boston Museum of Science's famous lightning show. "You're safe riding inside the T, for example, and the T has metal wheels. You're very safe inside a plane. Most commercial airplanes are struck by lightning once a year on average and there's very little damage. They're airborne, and the rubber tires have been pulled up into the fuselage."Cars and other metal structures are predominantly safe havens from lightning for two distinct reasons, Davis said. First, they are great conductors of electricity. Second, when cars and the like are struck by lightning, the current stays on the outermost surfaces of their metal frames. No matter where you touch inside the car, you won't get zapped."The charge is pushed to the outside skin of the conductor. It's called a skin effect," Davis said.The science behind this phenomenon goes something like this, explains Davis: A bolt of lightning might last but a second, but during that moment, the intensity of the current fluctuates several times. The current might start at 100,000 volts, jump up to 1 million volts, then slide back down to 500,000 volts, all within a second. The fluctuations create a magnetic field in the object that's being struck, such as your car, and that magnetic field pushes the current to the outside surfaces of the object."We do a very similar demonstration at the Theater of Electricity in the Museum of Science," Davis said. "We have a [human-size] metal bird cage with one-quarter-inch-thick iron bars that's struck by our 1-million-volt Van de Graaff generator. Visitors regularly touch the inside of the cage as it's being struck and they don't feel anything. Certainly, they are not harmed."Davis added a few points of caution, however. A car will conduct the electricity from a lightning strike with the windows open or closed. But if you were to stick out your hand, the charge would likely jump to your skin.While being in a car is safer than being outside during a lightning storm, it's probably only slightly safer than being in a house. (A house's electric wiring and plumbing will soak up the charge from a strike.)Likewise, you might be "marginally safer" in a larger vehicle than, say, a Mini Cooper, according to Davis.
Find a Harmony Between Old and Modern Objects
Mixing antique and contemporary elements is an enduring look and helps to pull together different styles in furniture and objects you have and which don’t seem to get along.What is key to harmonising these odds ‘n’ sods you might have bought over the years, or which were donated to help you set up home, is art and photography. An approach is to combine an old cabinet that doesn’t have the cachet of antique but might be categorised as vintage, and a modern artwork, a poster or black and white photo hanging above. One of the most striking combinations I’ve seen as an example of this was a quite dingy Victorian washstand that had been eaten by woodworm but still had its marble top intact, and on the wall above it an unframed abstract painting. Eye-catching, balanced and at the same time an example of making what you have work — rather than slinging it in the skip for something new. googletag.cmd.push(function() googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-incontent-1');); It also works counter-intuitively. An old painting in an elaborate gilt frame sited above a very modern cabinet, table or contemporary streamlined sofa has the same effect. But bearing in mind that few of us have a supply of inherited gilt-framed paintings, an obliging car boot sale will throw up a tatty but fancy frames that, with a spray of gold paint from your art supply shop, will encase an old family photo. Also remember that thanks to new technology, old tattered photos can be restored and enlarged significantly without losing resolution. A simple and modern metal frame surrounding the picture will provide a lovely contrast and will tie in with a modern furniture piece beneath. My own version is very simple. No worthy, gilt-edged art or French polished antiques here. My humble arrangement occupying a spot behind the sitting room door is an old — not even fashionably vintage — mahogany veneered dining trolley on castors. My father as a very young man gave it to his older sister as a wedding gift and she in turn gave to me. What it lacks in beauty and monetary value, it makes up for in personal connection, history and the love and thoughtfulness with which it was given. googletag.cmd.push(function() googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-incontent-2');); A collection of modern family photos in chunky rectangular brushed metal frames costing €3 each from a well-known Scandinavian retailer, zig-zag around the wall above, keeping within the parameters of the trolley’s length. If displaying family photos, old or new, is not your thing, interesting objects are an alternative. A sculpture, even a manufactured plaster imitation version, or a hollowed out stone bowl will, like the art/photography and furniture combo, provide a new focal point in a room, taking the eye away from the flat-screen television in the corner. Quirky or out-size mirrors are an option. As well as being attractive they are also functional. Don’t forget rugs either. If you’ve ever bought a really beautiful one and hesitated to put it on the floor, knowing it would be walked on, ask yourself if it would look good on a wall. Later, if you fancy a change it can revert to its original purpose. * Next week it’s the new trend of organic modern A LITTLE MOREART PROMPT* Try something that is neither art nor photography on your wall to provide visual interest, practicality and an alternative focus to the space.

Missing Woman Found Dead Under Hotel Bed
THE body of a Memphis woman missing since January has been found under the mattress of a hotel room where she had been living and had since been cleaned and rented out to other customers. On January 27 Sony Millbrook was reported missing to the Memphis Police Department after she failed to pick up her children from school, reported.Family members advised officers that they checked the hotel where Millbrook has been residing and she was not there.Millbrook had been staying in room 222 at a Budget Inn and was last seen there at 7am local time by a staff member who advised officers the room had been locked that day for lack of payment but all of her personal belongings were still inside the apartment.The case was assigned to the Missing Persons Bureau for follow-up investigation, however due to the nature of the incident the case was reassigned to Homicide in February.A Homicide Investigator conducting a follow-up went to the Budget Inn, and spoke to two clerks and a security guard. The investigator learned that Millbrook did not make a payment after January 26 and her belongings were boxed up and the room released for rental.On Tuesday, homicide investigators were called to room 222 where the body of a female had been located under the bed, after a report of a bad odour in the room. The body was identified as Millbrook's and it was apparent that she was the victim of a homicide. The cause of her death has not been released.The bed in which the victim was located is a metal box frame which sets directly on the floor and the box springs and mattress set inside the metal frame. The room had been rented approximately five times and cleaned by the hotel staff numerous times since her death.Homicide Investigators located Millbrook's boyfriend, LaKeith Moody, and interrogated him during the course of the investigation and later charged him with a gun violation.He is currently in Mason, Tennessee, being held on a federal gun charge. Mr Moody remains a person of interest in this case.
Glasses with Nose Pads Vs. Glasses Without?
It depends a lot on how the bridge of your nose is made. Many people can not wear plastic frames , which do not have nose pads because they just wo not fit. Metal frames with nose pads can be adjusted to sit away from the cheeks so you get better air circulation around them. Plastic frames tend to slip and ride down the nose a lot more than metal frames. In general , metal frames can be adjusted for a better fit than plastic frames , especially if one ear is a bit higher than the other , which is very common. So, unless the plastic frame is a perfect fit on the bridge of the nose, then a metal frame is a lot better.1. What is the best type of glasses frame for a strong prescription?The best frame choice for a strong prescription is a round frame because it is easier to shape a strong prescription effectively. No matter what you choose, just be sure your prescription eyeglasses fit well and reflect your individuality.1. Choose plastic glasses over metal frames. Plastic frames are lightweight and still customizable to fit your personality. They remain the most common and budget-friendly, and make lens replacement easier.2. Look for glasses that have a frame around the entire lens. In full-rim glasses, the lenses are covered on all sides with the frames. This helps minimize the appearance of the lens' thickness.3. Do not buy glasses that have a huge lens area. The further you get away from the focal point on a lens, the thicker the lens will be and the more distortion that will exist (a strong minus power will magnify your eyes, making your eyes look smaller on your face. a strong plus power will make your eyes look larger on your face)3. If you have a high plus power, try to stay away from long, narrow frames (frames that are long across the top), as the lenses will tend to pop out of those frames the easiest. What is the best type of glasses frame for a strong prescription?2. Simple, large, plastic/metal frames?Your physique length, no count number how huge can not make you fat. Fatness has certainly not something to do with physique length. in spite of the undeniable fact that, i am getting what you are saying. it style of feels multiple the girls in Hollwyood with larger frames like Rosie O'Donnnell tend to additionally be fat to boot. it somewhat is by way of the endermorph physique style, extreme lean mass AND extreme physique fat. yet i could say Serena and Venus Williams are sturdy examples of having a great physique and not being fat. they are of course very muscular to boot as great framed. additionally Beyonce who's rather lean yet not small, Kelly Osbourne who has slimmed down at present and Oprah Winfrey, yet she is often up and down along with her weight, so i am undecided if she counts3. Laptop Wireless Internet connection problem?This is quite common, one thing you can do is position the router high and away from any cupboards or walls and metal frames, magnets, monitors, speakers etc they will just bounce the signal in the wrong direction or absorb them completely. Rebooting the entire network often helps too, this resolves ip conflicts etc. Turn OFF every computer, then reboot the router (turn it off then on again) and then fire your laptop up, then all the other computers one by one.4. Can I buy metal frames for existing commercial steel doors?You can buy just the doors and leave the frames installed if you can find a commercial door supply that carries the doors that are hung to the standards of your frames. Cook and Boardman is a good example of a door company in my area but I do not know if they have a distributor in you area5. Where can I buy cheap picture frames of all sizes in bulk?They are very reasonably priced. They will make any size you need. If you buy multiples they will discount their all ready wholesale price. You can buy just the frames if you want6. Poll: Why do people always give excuses and leave when I invite them to my basement?I know. I try to make them feel at home by sealing off all the windows and showing off all my leather straps and metal frames. People are weird

Here's How the Nilgiris Tribals Contribute Towards Elephant Conservation
"I saw one just the other day," says S Vishnu Varadhan. "He was standing on the grassland behind our house." Vishnu is talking about an elephant. A resident of Kargudi, a hamlet within the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve in the Nilgiris, he sees elephants almost every day, so much so that he knows their magnificent physique, the flap of their ears, bend of their trunks, and girth of their feet, like the back of his hand. The 25-year-old, who's from the Betta Kurumba tribe, is etching the elephants he's seen into life-sized ones made of lantana, an invasive weed. He is part of a team of 25 tribal artisans from the Nilgiris that is making lantana elephants to raise funds for elephant conservation. One hundred of the elephants will be auctioned in the UK and US in 2021. The project is a collaborative effort of social enterprise The Real Elephant Collective and NGO Elephant Family. Vishnu and the team have been working at a workshop in Thorapalli, a small town in the hills, that has elephants, tigers, leopards, and spotted deer for neighbours. The journeyThe lantana elephant's journey begins as a photograph. "There's a separate team for taking photos," says R Manikandan, who assists Tarsh Thekaekara, an elephant researcher at The Shola Trust, who brings his valuable expertise to the project. "I'm here to help the team take their own photos and set camera traps. The idea is to make them self-sustained in terms of camera usage." From the photo, the elephant's dimensions are transferred onto paper, and then given 3D form using metal rods.Welder K Yogeswaran is the man behind the metal frame. "I use 6 mm and 10 mm rods for this," he tells us, removing his dark goggles. He's working on the frame of a baby elephant, giving it shape, one spark after another from his welding gun. Each elephant takes a month-and-a-half to make. "Once the frame is ready, we take over," says AV Serappan, who's from the Paniyar tribe. "I did carpentry and painting work before this project; we've been working here since December 2017," adds the 48-year-old.Lantana, an invasive weed that's taking over our forests, was brought from MM Hills near Kollegal in Karnataka, for the project, according to Manikandan. For crafting them into elephants though, the shoots have to be boiled, the outer layer, peeled. This is when the women in the team, M Ramya, M Chitra, and B Lakshmi, come into the picture. "Boiling the shoots makes them flexible," explains Ramya, who's also from Kargudi. She too, like her fellow villagers, sees elephants every day. "We live right inside their territory, don't we?"How to name itVishnu says each lantana elephant has a real-life counterpart. He points to one labelled KK2. "Her name is Rani; she's from Kapikad." He knows her habits very well. "She's an expert at sleeping while standing," he chuckles. By her feet, baby elephant Messi is taking shape. Vishnu did odd jobs that came his way, such as being a guide with the Forest Department, before he joined the team. He says that even today, when he thinks of his job, he gets goosebumps. "I make elephants," he says, shaking his head. "I make elephants."
Is THIS What the IPhone 8 Will Look Like? Concept Images Reveal Curved Edges, Stainless Steel Sides
It has been rumoured to have a dual-lens camera, augmented reality, a curved screen and even facial recognition - but what will these features look like in the iPhone 8?New concept images have revealed what one artist thinks Apple's next phone might look like.The concept is based on a succession of reports suggesting Apple is abandoning its aluminum casing in favour of a return to a glass and stainless steel design.Apple 's iPhone 8 may still be months away, but rumours about the highly anticipated smartphone are flooding the internet.Recent rumours from an 'upstream supply chain' suggest the Cupertino company is ditching the aluminium back cover for its next model.Instead, it will be designed with a stainless steel forging process that brings together two reinforced glass panels supported by a metal frame.It was first reported by Chinese newspaper DigiTimes , which revealed the new components would be ordered from Foxconn electronics US-based Jabil - firms who worked with Apple in creating the iPhone 4, reports 9To5Mac Now Industrial Design student Imran Taylor from Manila, the Philippines, has released pictures of what this might look like.Mr Taylor describes his concept as: 'Bringing back the classic iPhone 4 design language, with glass on the front and back constructed with a NEW liquid metal frame.' The concept shows a high quality Gorrilla Glass with a liquid metal frame, Mr Taylor says.The rear of the phone shows the glass back with a vertical dual-camera arrangement that hasbeen suggested in previous reports.The pictures also show an iPad Pro-style Smart Connector that has not been rumoured.Functions of the lower bezel, a word used to describe the circular button, display, shown, could vary among different apps A rumour that was leaked by Cowen and Company earlier this month suggests this year's tenth anniversary handset will have 'some form of facial/gesture recognition'.Written by Timothy Arcuri, a Cowen and Company analyst, the note was firest reported by Kif Leswing with Business Insider 'Other features appear to include some form of facial/gesture recognition supported by a new laser sensor and an infrared sensor mounted near the front-facing camera and, as expected, should also finally include wireless charging,' Arcuri wrote.Sources also speculated there will be a new 5.8 inch model, complete with a 'wraparound' OLED screen with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor underneath the glass.The lower display notifies and provides quick access to apps/notifications when the screen is off, Imran Taylor says
Historic Metal Casement Windows | Repair & Restoration Guide
With care and routine cleaning historic metal casement windows can last just as long as a modern day replacement. Whether cast, wrought iron or steel, corrosion is generally the primary cause of any issues that might occur. This guide aims to give a historical context to non-galvanised (pre 1950) metal casement windows and the distinct development of material and form over the years, advice on a best practise maintenance routine, signs of deterioration to look out for and likely restoration and repair techniques when metal windows are in need of intervention. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure this guide is informative, this is not a definitive resource to historic metal window restoration and specialist advice should always be sought when necessary. The first metal windows in the UK were reserved for the noble or papal. Exceptionally expensive, glazing was not affordable for most meaning the earliest examples of metal windows in the UK are predominantly found in ecclesiastical buildings and country manors. Initially, windows were made by medieval blacksmiths from wrought iron. Installed directly into the building secured with copper or lead ferramenta bars, the windows were fixed closed and fairly simplistic in design. Casement windows, those with at least one light or pane that could be opened, required significantly more skill and craftsmanship, since they required mechanical components. The majority of 14th - 17th century windows took this form, made up of a series of leaded light panels, in diamond shapes (known as quarries) joined together using strips of lead (cames) to produce one casement glazed area framed with wrought iron. In the 18th century, wrought iron casement windows were predominantly superseded by the latest fashion - timber sash windows which we see so much of today. Still, metal casement windows with leaded lights continued to be used in ecclesiastical settings and in lowlier domestic houses, and a mini renaissance occurred in the 1800's with the boom in gothic architecture, the arts and crafts movement and the industrial revolution. The developments in manufacturing processes in the industrial revolution led to traditional wood sash windows being reproduced in cast iron. Once a craftsman's job, metal windows could now be mass produced by the new 19th century factories. The final stage historically in metal window development came in the 1850's when Sir Henry Bessemer, an English engineer and inventor, developed a new mass production process for hot rolled steel. This allowed for new innovations in the manufacture of casement windows and as a result they became predominantly made from steel. Through the Art Deco and World War periods, owing to the versatility of the material architecturally, steel window production flourished. One of the largest and most well-known producers of the time were Crittal - now a well-used term for steel windows - which are still in production to this day. To find out more about the metallurgy and a historical context of the particular metals used in these windows have a look at our tech spec guides for wrought iron, cast iron and steel. In the case of older non-galvanised metal windows made of wrought iron, cast iron or steel, a maintenance routine should be developed to ensure your windows last as they should. Some of the most prevalent problems that occur with metal casement windows include: Corrosion, although slightly different dependent on the fabric of your window casement, is generally the primary cause of any issues that might occur, and good care and routine cleaning will keep this to a minimum, protecting both the metal and glazing. If in any doubt, seek professional advice before attempting to clean metal windows. Check metal frames for sitting water - whether resulting from heavy rain or condensation. Gathering to excess can accelerate the corrosion process. Some steel casement windows will have small holes along their base (weep holes) to allow sitting water to drain away. Check these regularly for blockages and keep them clear of any obstructions Light rust can be removed by hand with a wire brush or sandpaper, however, more severely corroded metal windows may need to be cleaned professionally. Oiling moving components of window furniture regularly will help reduce the chances of rusting or fusing shut. A thin oil (such as 2 in 1) should be used on iron and steel window moving components to keep free. You can clean historic ironmongery gently with soft cloths or brass brush. Do not to use any abrasive cream or solvents and ensure you dry the ironwork completely after cleaning. Signs of Windows in Need of Intervention There are certain signs to look out for that may indicate some of the above conditions may be occurring, at which point, restoration/conservation advice should be sought. Fusing between catches, stays and pivots (never force windows open or closed if they are stuck!) Blistering to protective paintwork where metal underneath is corroding Lifting / falling out of putty around glazing Often, metal casement windows will look a lot worse than they actually are. Since rust by volume is greater than un-oxidised iron or steel, what looks like a terrible mess may in fact be fairly easily rectified by a professional. Once restored, metal casement windows can last as long as a new replacement would if maintained. Original historic metal windows bring character and aesthetic to your building, and should never be replaced with uPVC or other crude alternatives. Replication, where repair is not possible, should be sensitive to the character of existing windows using matching sections, original fittings, and where necessary, traditionally produced glass. An important note should be made on window furniture. It is of great importance that the existing furniture is both maintained and preserved where possible and re-used during any repair or alteration works. These points are even more relevant where the building is listed or in a conservation area and planning consents maybe required. In restoration, glazing and old putty will often need removing from the metal frames. Existing glazing will be carefully cleaned and reinstated and replacement putty installed. Where the metal frames are in need of attention, dependent on the fabric, dent-straightening, cold stitching (if thick enough), fire welding, modern welding and patching are typical repair techniques which may be used. Whilst light corrosion can be removed by hand, serious rust may require using acid pickling or shot blasting. Which techniques are employed will often depend on both budgets and the historical context of the windows. A zinc based paint will often be used as a primer to provide a protective layer to bare metal prior to painting with a suitable system. It should be noted, that removing all coatings from the metalwork can destroy evidence of previous historic paintwork. As such some paint samples should be taken and if possible layers should be left behind in a small area where rust has not occurred to provide a context for future owners.

A Guide to Choosing Glasses That FitAnyone who has ever worn glasses understands how uncomfortable a pair can be if they are not properly fitted and adjusted. While industry pros are capable of only slightly adjusting plastic frames, there are a variety of ways that metal frames can be adjusted for an ideal fit. Experts know that the one of the most common ways of adjusting metal frames is through the nose pads. Read on for a quick guide to some of the most popular types of nose pads used on metal frame glasses, and how an Optician can select the right ones for their client. While optical nose pads are available in a wide range of materials, professionals know that there are two types that are most common: plastic and silicone. Graduates of optician programs know that silicone is generally the most comfortable material for nose pads. It is soft and flexible, and moulds to the contours of the wearer's nose. However, silicone nose pads are not perfect, as their porous material easily absorbs sweat and dirt. Causing a slight discoloration to occur about every six months. Once you have earned your optician diploma, it is important to have your clients check in with you at least twice a year to have their silicone pads switched out for new ones. Plastic nose pads, on the other hand, have a much more rigid feel compared to silicone ones. Opticians know that nose pads made from this material tend to be much less comfortable than the silicone pads, and do not contour to the face the same way. Opticians Choose the Best Method to Mount Nose Pads Students enrolled in Licensed Optician courses will learn that there are several ways that nose pads can be mounted onto a pair of metal frame glasses. Dispensing Opticians always have screw on nose pads on hand, since these are the most popular type. They are held onto the frames by a tiny screw that slides through a hole beneath the nose pad and the frame's guard arm. If a customer should need replacement screw on pads, it is important to recommend that they see a certified optician. A screwdriver must be used and it can easily slip and scratch the lenses. Snap on nose pads are also quite common. They come in a variety of materials and are very easy to replace. They can be found at virtually any eyeglasses store and they simply click on and off of the frames. Professional Opticians Understand the Importance of Nose Pad Shape and Size Professional Licensed Opticians know that nose pads are made in sizes. Ranging from approximately 9mm to 24mm, and they come in many different shapes. It is important that an Optician select the right size for his or her client, depending on their specific features. Symmetrical nose pads are all identical and can be used on both the left side and the right. These are ideal for opticians as the guesswork usually involved in differentiating the left from the right pad is eliminated. Asymmetrical nose pads consist of a pad designated to wither the right or left side of a frame. Experts know that the flat edge of these pads should always face away from the face.

My Metal Frame Bed Is Broken From One Side Where Is Was Joint Together with Headboard Leg.?
Tex person is right. regular glue would not hold such pressure. There is a liquid called JB weld (most hardware stores sell it). I would suggest you apply the JB weld, and then wire the frame back together for more support. edit: You might also support that part of the frame with a cement block or bricks. (for additional support) edit: AL Batty has a good point. But, if you decide to use L brackets, it might be a good idea to also consider wiring them in place afer you have drilled and attached them with small bolts and nuts. -- (depending on the way the frame has come apart)1. How do I age and distress a pressed tin/metal frame?You could paint it a base color and then once that's dry go over it with a glaze (paint mixed with water) to get all the indents.

Sounds like a unique vintage piece that just needs to be laquered or painted and will look great in a Rustic Cottage setting or work well with a Vintage Industrial theme. I like using pieces like that as make shift wall hooks for scarves and hats as well. Another excellent Idea is to make a shelf or end table out of it, since it's so large you could possibly use it as an end table by hanging it low and putting a sheet of thick glass over it5. metal frame or quick set pool???

BUT, if it's gross, Home Depot carries a cut to fit blue filter material (under $10) that is stiff enough to support itself under the suction, is washable, and every bit as good (or better than) the throw-outs. Use your old frame and cut one of those to fit it. That should hold you for a few years.8.
