Shopping List for How to Repair a Leaky Kitchen Faucet:
– Rubber seats and springs
– Rubber gasket and cam cap
– Ceramic cartridge, to repair a ceramic-cartridge faucet if you have one

Tools List for How to Repair a Leaky Kitchen Faucet:
– Hex-hey wrench, to loosen the hex-head screw
– Pocketknife or narrow-blade screwdriver, to extract faucet parts
– Sharpened pencil, to install new seats and springs
– Spanner wrench

Steps for How to Repair a Leaky Kitchen Faucet:
1. Close the hot- and cold-water shutoff valves under the kitchen sink.
2. Place a rag over the sink drain to catch any dropped parts.
3. Use a pocketknife to pry off the small index cover from the side of the faucet to reveal the hex-head screw.
4. Loosen the screw with the hex-key wrench and pull off the faucet handle.
5. Use the spanner wrench that came with the faucet to loosen and remove top cap assembly.
6. Pull straight up to remove the stainless-steel ball from the faucet body.
7. Use a pocketknife to extract the rubber seats and springs from inside the faucet.
8. Slip a new spring and rubber seat onto the tip of a pencil and lower it down into the faucet. Repeat to install the remaining seat and spring.
9. Reinstall the stainless-steel ball, making sure to align its keyway with the corresponding tab inside the faucet body.
10. On top of the stainless-steel ball install a new rubber gasket and cam cap. Align the keyway on the cap with the corresponding slot to ensure proper alignment.
11. Hand-tighten the top cap assembly back onto the faucet.
12. Open the two shutoff valves under the sink.
13. Use the spanner wrench to tighten the nut to provide the proper tension against the stainless-steel ball.
14. Reinstall the faucet handle, tighten the hex-head screw and then press on the index cover.
15. If your faucet doesn’t have a stainless-steel ball, it’s likely a ceramic-cartridge faucet. To repair the leak, simply remove the handle, pull out the ceramic cartridge and replace it with a new cartridge.

HOW TO REPAIR ROOF SHINGLES – Replace Missing Aspahlt Roofing Shingles Step by Step Guide

Part two starts at 9:26

Learn how to perform a DIY (Do It Yourself) roof repair when you have missing or broken shingles on your roof.

Step 1: Using a flat bar, separate the tabs of overlapping shignles 2 rows above and 1-2 shingles left and right, so you can completely remeove the damaged shingle.

Pry up the nails that hold down the damaged shingle.

2) Remove the shigle and replace it with new color mataching shingle.
Most roof manufacturers have similar colors, so as long as your new shingle is the same size as old ones, you are in good shape.
Replace the damaged shingle with new shingle and nail it down with at least 4 galvanazed roofing nails. I recommend using 6 nails per shingle.

Next nail all overlapping shingels above on on the sides

Congrats – you are ALL SET!

Cute Miniature Fairy garden – Tutorial

Hi guys! Today we’re making this cute miniature fairy garden ^^ This is a fun project for spring, and you can customize it however you like. I made mine I a Zink tray to keep inside, but you can do this project in a bigger pot to put in your real garden :

I used a flower pot as my fairy house and build a polymer clay door onto it, inspired by the round Hobbit doors. You can add whatever decorations and detail, you like; I added the flower pots and tools I made in this video;…

Good to know:

I work in 1:12 scale, but you can make them in any size you want and add headpins to make them charms 🙂 I used a mix of the polymer clay brands Fimo and Cernit, but you can use any brand you like. The liquid clay I use is from the brand Fimo. My mold maker is from Siligum/Sili-put.

Thank you so much for watching, I hope you enjoyed this video ^^
