Tag Archive: Repair

So after nearly a year of not being used due to magic smoke and melted parts, my Ooznest Prusa I3 is alive again and reproducing.

After a problem with a tensioner braking and a real of ABS refusing to stick, I have now started printing new part for both the printer and my own custom Pi3 printer.

I have a list of parts I need to print for the printer and there is something else I should be printing to repair something in the house but I can’t remember what.

I’m sure it will come to me at some point.

The printer and the mini lathe.


As an owner of a cheep unit multi tool clone (that worked quite well for what it was) I was down hearted when some of the coupler parts (the black bit above) broke and I was unable to keep parts together.

After the purchase of a 3d printer and having to work out cad software, I have finished designing the replacement part and it works a lot better.
One part finished, now on to the next replacement part.

Someone took notice of my explorations and moved on to explore other sources for the cells.

Warning: I have been busy and haven’t been able to verify that this works!

Reader CMCristy started with what I wrote and when on to experiment, and wrote up his finding here.
I hope this is of help to fellow PSP owners.

Dyson D07 Dissambly part 01

Well we all know that when a Dyson works it good but when It doesn’t it realy sucks (excuse pun). My dad gave me his DC07 that randomly cuts out and blind curiosity kicked it and I started to dissamble it.

Well heres the humble Dyson unaware of what is about to befall it.

First up was the removal of the easy parts.

  • The bin (Just push the button on the top)

  • The filter
  • Left pipe
  • Rear pipe.

Then next up came the hose.

to remove this push the big yellow catch which releases the hose

Then to release the lower section push the yellow bit

While pulling and it slides off. (image shows removed parts including the removed filter.)

Next is the stripped DC07

Under the bit is another cover and filter (two images up),to remove this you need to jamb this catch back

While pulling, and the cover comes off

showing the top of the motor casing(?)

Well thats as far as I got tonight but next up is the power switch.BTW all picture are here.
