My car repair pit, first tests
This is a underground pit for car repair, when not in use it is locked into the concrete slab and can support over 15000 pounds. It also has the ability to lift a car a few inches above ground level for tire and brake work. Been working on this for 3 months and am currently dialing in the hydraulic system. If you look at the deck and the round cover in the slab you can see them lift when the platform descends this is due to displaced air from inside the pit. Will post an additional video in the future showing how it works and what was involved in construction.
How to Maintain a Garage Door
Mike Kraft gives tips on garage door maintenance. There are three key steps: cleaning, safety and lubricating. Find the detailed instructions here: http://low.es/1Sie7Ma Start outside, cleaning the outside of your door with a soft sponge or cloth. You should do this once a year or potentially more if you live in a soft air climate. Once it is washed, just rinse with a hose. If the garage door is made of wood, inspect the door to see if it needs to be repainted or stained. It's also good to do a safety check every few months or so. Keep in mind torsion springs can cause injuries. If your door uses extension springs, you can find replacements at your local Lowe's. When doing safety checks, remove any cars or debris from the garage door area or tracks. Then do a visual inspection of all the cables, rollers, springs and hinges. Replace anything is frayed or worn and tighten bolts. For bolts that are near a safety tag or painted red, only have a trained technician adjust. Also check the door balance, disconnecting the power first to the opener. Then disengage the door from the opener and raise the door to waist level. Release slowly. If the door raises or lowers, a trained technician will need to adjust the balance. Use a non-silicone based lubricant to lubricate hinges, springs and bearings. Don't oil the tracks, or else the door might become unbalanced. If your door needs some repair, look at your owner's manual or visit your local Lowe's for a garage door professional installation.

N Ways To Remove An Oil Filter Without Special Tool, DIY - in 4K UHD
Most times the engine oil filter is not too hard to remove, but occasionally you may encounter a very difficult one. When that happens, if you can't locate your best special oil filter wrench or you don't have another driveable car to run to the store, this video should help you. It would be nice if you can make use of the tools you already have in your garage. Depending on what items you have and the kind of car you have, I will show you 4 different ways to remove a stuck engine oil filter. Again it should not cost you anything. Note that your garage may have somewhat different items, in which case my video will inspire you to find your own solutions. If your filter is the canister type (not one time use), see this video on how to change it: https://youtu.be/C074os54sQM There are so many different cheap tools on the market. If one tool does not work, don't panic, try something else. Note that tools for oil changing are not that expensive. However, if you can't locate them or if you don't DIY often, simple tools shown in this video could come in handy. If you do change your own engine oil often, then investing in better tools may not be a bad idea. High definition video may help you see all of this better.
