So, I have the guitar of the link and picture. It costs around $120 new and I bought it used for $40. I'm not from the US and the price of repairing it pretty much put me two-thirds of just buying a new one. I'm back to playing the guitar and the one I have need some repairs and maybe some rewiring to have a tone that don't suck balls all the time.

1. Apparently the bridge saddles needs adjustment and I have no idea where to start.

2. At least 2 frets on the first string just fret and don't play the note I want, and I want to ajust that and don't know how. It might have something to do with bridge saddles, though

3. How the fuck can these people fuck that much up on pickups that the tone feel like a discarded boot sole with noise? Isn't a guitar pickup just a copper coil around some magnets? Can't I just find some neodymium magnets and tactically place them somewhere in the pickups and the tone would get better quality instantly?

4. Maybe finding better components for the potenciometers and better cables might help, what should I be looking for?

I need suggestions on a super cheap spartan/industrial/minimalist house. I am searching for a house in specific area in the Southeast US. I can only seem to find disgusting remodeled trailers or overpriced excessive mcmansions, but undeveloped land is cheap and plentiful. Humidity, flash floods, and tornadoes are the only hazards to the structure. I don’t want to pay for things I don’t need and a barebones house that I could finish myself later after paying off the mortgage would be ideal.

-1 bed+bath, guest bath, 1 office/guest bed, kitchen, laundry closet, storage/gym (can be separate), garage (can be separate).
-HVAC (can be ductless)
-Minimal insulation (southeast)
-Easy maintenance (e.g. exposed plumbing, exposed electrical, concrete floors)
-Livable and could pass inspection
-Tornado, humidity, and flood resistance (no large windows, bare metal, low particle board)
Don’t Need:
-Fixed cabinets (just need a sink and a stove/range, could be portable)
-Cosmetics (molding, shutters, paint, etc.)
-Hidden utilities
-Trailer: Not allowed per zoning, narrow rooms, dangerous in storms, deteriorates quickly.
-Prefab: Not much better than a trailer, having trouble finding dealers. Still paying for cosmetics.
-Kit House: I have the time, stamina, and intelligence, but many kits aren’t much cheaper than traditional building, especially after considering my own labor. Lots of kits have more glass than walls. Still paying for cosmetics.
-Shipping containers: Limited width, worried about rust. Are they really cheaper?
-New construction: I would like plain cinderblock (pic related). Would a builder even consider constructing something like this for cheap? Would a lender finance a first-time home buyer doing this?

Can one of you kind gentlemen please give me a rundown on machine screws?
Identifying the head is easy enough but how do you identity the thread?
If I have an unknown screw or an object with a missing screw how do I know what screw type to order?

I assume perhaps the easiest way is to have a selection known of screws you can compare the screw to / try to fit in the hole, but what screws should I acquire for this purpose? Are there only a handful of different thread types that are used in commercial products?

So temperatures are starting to lower and soon enough Im gonna start having issues showering comfortably. I live in a relatively warm country, it doesn't snow at all and the gas doesnt actually freeze, just mostly turns liquid at night/morning which is enough to cause heating issues(last year I was forced to always shower in the afternoon but I would rather not fuck up my routine like that again). Do you have any cheap diy ideas on how to minimize this problem, like how to insulate a gas bottle sitting outside or something else as long as its easy and doesn't require electricity?

I know the ideal solution would be switching to propane but Im poor and propane its expensive as fuck. Not only that, it would require replacing my shitty gas heater entirely(not just switching the regulator) which is another major cost.

>> No.1700164

Wrap a blanket around it

>> No.1700175

>> No.1700237

Are you allowed to wrap the tank with an electric heating tape?

>> No.1700459

Does this actually work or are you joking?

Yeah I had it at max last year and it still wasnt enough.

Not entirely sure but I live in a piece of shit nowhere town so even if its not legal no one would care, it's just that I would rather not have another extra energy cost. Is there really no way to minimize the temperature drop on the bottle without using electricity?

>> No.1700461

Just insulate the bottle with something, add heating to it, the better the insulation the less heat you will need... A blanket is not the best insulator but still better than nothing. Use the same shit u put between your house walls or even styrofoam or something similar. If were you, i would use a little bit of electicity to heat it when needed... A fun alternative would be a compost heater or using the methane, generated from the compost, to heat it.
