Which Way To Turn The Trimmer
Collective farmers with tattoo
I have been twisting the hoop for 3 years and always in one direction, I have not noticed any deviations!
you most likely have a curvature of the spine and a skewed pelvis. Perhaps very small, so it was not visible on an untrained waist. I am not writing out of malice. I just have the same problem and I discovered it completely by accident. It does not interfere with life until you look very closely. can not see.
lucky you all. I didn’t have any hoops, the last already generally heavy Jimflextor and I twisted it for 20 minutes and for an hour, the result was zero. As was the waist 68 and it does not take anything: ((
I read somewhere that it is correct to turn the hoop only in one direction
Pour sand into the hoop. As for your question, I tend to answer 13.
It’s a stupid problem! I’ve been with the hoop for five years now and everything is OK with the waist. Curved waist is definitely not because of him.!
It doesn’t matter which way, it’s nonsense that you have to twist in different directions. I twist the 4th year 5 railroad hoops I don’t see any differences
Please tell me! Who knows anything about the Grace trainer? How is it done? And is there any sense in this?
Yes, yes, yes, this is a curvature of the spine! The pelvic bones are shifted. I myself have been suffering with this for 7 years. You, the author, need to go to a good chiropractor and everything will be fine with you! =)
Damn started spinning hoops and noticed a change.
I can’t turn to the right at all!
Only to the left. How can I fix it, otherwise I don’t want a crooked thaw (
the same dashaaa ((
advise what to do if you can only twist the hoop in one direction,
if you twist to the left, then which side will bend more?
And I never twisted the hoop, but there is a bend on the left, but on the right, it’s generally hard to understand where the waist is! )))))) So it’s not about the hoop, I think!

In this case, you need to remove a pair of edges))))
No difference. The main thing is to twist it regularly and there will be an effect, and if you once from once then the result is 0

Contact Closed Angle Adjustment
UZSK adjustment is necessary when using a classic or transistor ignition system. When using a thyristor system, the UZSK value is not critical.
To adjust, remove the distributor cover. If a classic ignition system is used. then before adjusting, I recommend that you clean the distributor contacts with a file by removing the formed tubercle on one of the contacts. After stripping, it is necessary to check that the contacts adjoin each other with their entire plane. Readjust if necessary by gently bending the stationary contact.
Next, you need to turn the crankshaft to such a position that the distance between the distributor contacts is maximum. Unscrew the screw securing the contact group to the bearing plate, insert a 0.4 mm thick probe between the contacts and select such a position of the contact group so that the probe moves with little effort. Fix the found position of the contact group by tightening the screw. Check the size of the gap by trying to place a thinner (less than 0.35 mm) and thicker (more than 0.45 mm) stylus between the contacts. thick
Which way to turn the distributor for early ignition. Remind where to turn the distributor?
Do-it-yourself ignition timing
Correctly set ignition timing assumes the adjustment of the UOZ. It is necessary to correct the ignition angle at idle speed. It should be borne in mind that the optimal idle speed is considered to be in the range of 850-900 rpm. The angle of inclination of the ignition moment is also within a certain range from 1 (negative) to 1 (positive) degree. The specified degree is a degree in relation to TDC.
Most often, a stroboscope is used to set the ignition timing. This solution allows you to achieve accuracy during installation. In the absence of a device, you can also use the control light.
The specified lamp is connected to the positive terminal on the ignition distributor, and also connected to ground. Next, we will consider the main available ways to configure the ignition on the following example of domestic “classics”:
Setting the UOZ by the control light
If the method of setting the ignition by a light bulb is used, then it is necessary to turn the engine crankshaft so that the mark on the crankshaft pulley coincides with the mark on the timing cover. In this case, the slider on the ignition distributor should point to the spark plug wire of the first cylinder.
Further, the lock nut of the distributor is loosened, after which one wire from the bulb is switched with the wire that goes to the ignition coil from the distributor. The second wire from the lamp is installed to ground. Then you need to turn on the ignition and rotate the distributor housing clockwise until the control lamp stops burning. After that, you should carefully turn the distributor body back, that is, counterclockwise. Having determined the position at which the light comes on, it is necessary to fix the distributor body in this position. Fixation is done by tightening the distributor nut.
If the ignition on the VAZ 2107 is too late, which way to turn the distributor?
without a difference in what, by ear and by the tachometer, retire! but it is better to call a specialist and give him 10!
there is a special device for setting the lead angle, it is better to go to the service, make a mistake and spend more money on fuel consumption.
more like glow ignition (wrong spark plugs or crappy gasoline)
all clear! The slider spins clockwise, and so turn the distributor counterclockwise, which would be earlier and for, which would later!
How should I know?
If you go to the service station there, they will put the device on the device, detonation will torture you by eye and you will burn a lot of fuel.
Fine-tuning the ignition on your own. DRIVE2
Good afternoon, dear club members. I would like to share with you my own technique for installing ignition on classic cam-ignition engines (this technique is also suitable for a classic engine with electronic ignition).
I have been using this technique for a very long time. My father laid the foundation for this knowledge. He told me about the principle of operation of the internal combustion engine and about the moment of ignition. He showed an example of the “old-fashioned” way of installing the ignition, and then I worked out my method in practice and in bad experiments. How many cars did not make everywhere it turned out with a bang and all my friends always ask me to set them up.
To work you will need:
-ratchet wrench or curve starter.
-flat screwdriver with wide, powerful blade
-open-end wrench 12×13
-set of probes
-rubber cone plug
How to start a 2-cycle or 2 stroke Echo Weed-Trimmer in UNDER A MINUTE!
So, in order for the engine to work as it should, it is necessary that at the right time, or rather, some time before the piston reaches TDC, a spark is formed between the spark plug electrodes, which will ignite the mixture by the time the piston approaches TDC and the gas does work on expansion will push the piston down.
In order for sparking to occur at the right time, a distributor is used in the ignition system, the basis of which is the slider and the contact group of the breaker. The most important adjustments in cam ignition are the gap between the breaker cams, the UZSK (angle of the closed state of the contacts) and the moment the spark occurs (ignition timing).
Before starting the installation of the ignition you must make sure of the following:
1) The spark plugs are in good condition and fit for future use. If there is oil carbon deposit, I advise you to ignite it. I do not recommend using sandpaper, even the smallest one, because on most candles, the manufacturer uses a special spraying and fine abrasive from removing carbon deposits can get to the wrong place and as a result of such cleaning, you can ruin the candle (it will start to pierce). It is not at all necessary to ignite the candle to red, the main thing is that unwanted oil deposits burn out. Adjust the spark plug gap evenly as stated in the manual. Be sure to use a special wire probe for this.
2) Check the condition of the breaker contacts. If there are traces of metal burnout, corrosion, replace the contacts. I do not recommend repairing them. It is much cheaper to replace them and forget about them for a long time. I recommend the Beru brand.
3) Check the capacitor for charge discharge with a tester. The current should drain smoothly and slowly. It is better to use an arrow tester for this, it is more clearly visible.
5) Remove dirt from the ignition coil, distributor and distributor cap. If there is carbon deposits on the distributor cap, replace it. Don’t skimp, get a good factory cover.
6) Assess the condition of the carburetor. If he does not respond to the adjustment, then he needs repair. But this is already a separate topic for conversation.
7) Check the performance of the vacuum ignition advance. The drive should run without jamming, the tube should be thick-walled without breaks and cracks.
So, after making sure that everything is in good working order and suitable and replaced with a new one, let’s proceed to the adjustment itself.
Consider the case if the distributor was removed from the car entirely. To install it in place, you need to find one of the 1st or 4th cylinders in which, when the marks on the crankshaft pulley and on the front cover are combined, the compression stroke will take place. This is very easy to do. We find the conical rubber stopper and insert it tighter into the candle hole. I am always looking for a 4 cylinder, because it is in it on a classic engine that compression occurs when all the timing marks are aligned. Smoothly turn the crankshaft with a special ratchet wrench or a crooked starter. as the desired cylinder is found, the rubber stopper will fly out of the desired cylinder. I advise you to tie it to something, I constantly searched for it for a long time))) Next, we match exactly the marks on the pulley and on the front cover (the longest). We insert the distributor along the slot so that the slider stands exactly perpendicular to the plane of the head and looks in its direction. Next, we lift the distributor up to the state so that it is possible to turn the shaft without engaging the splines and overlap one tooth clockwise. This is necessary in order to give the distributor a full adjustment stroke. otherwise you usually adjust and then the vacuum advance drive blocks access to the plug of the first cylinder So, the distributor is in our place. Now the process itself. We expose the gap between the contacts as indicated in the manual. For a classic motor this clearance is 0.45. You won’t be able to set the angle of the closed state yourself, and it will be unnecessary work. It will be possible to set it more accurately according to the device, this function is also present in special car testers. We connect all the wiring as expected, set the torque adjustment exactly in the middle of its stroke. Insert the spark plug of the 4th cylinder into the corresponding spark plug wire, turn on the ignition. We move the pulley counterclockwise by 45 degrees. Make contact with the mass for the spark plug and begin to smoothly turn the pulley clockwise. As a spark passes between the electrodes, we stop the rotation of the crankshaft. we look at the marks (the mark on the pulley and the middle mark on the cover). If they have a take-off run, it is necessary to turn the distributor a few degrees to the desired side. If the pulley mark ran forward from the front cover mark in the direction of rotation, this means the ignition is much later and the distributor should be turned counterclockwise. If the mark, on the contrary, is up to the mark on the pulley, this means the ignition is very early and the distributor should be turned clockwise a few degrees. Then we repeat the procedure again: we turn the pulley back and again look at what moment the spark will slip through. compare the marks, adjust. When there is enough experience, everything turns out very quickly and deftly. Note that the slower and more accurately you turn the pulley, the more accurately you will set the ignition. To achieve accurate alignment of the marks, tighten the distributor and turn the crankshaft two turns and check the accuracy of the adjustment again. If there is a run, remove it, if everything is exactly start the engine, warm it up, the ignition is set. Next, you need to accelerate the car to a speed of 40-50 km / h and turn on the 4th gear sharply press the gas. If you hear a sharp sound of busting the valves, then the ignition must be done later. Usually, if the adjustment is made exactly, nothing else needs to be adjusted.
I will also tell you about a faster method, for the first start of a car after a major overhaul, for example. The installation of the distributor in place is carried out according to the principle I have described, but the moment can be set easier. Having found the 4th cylinder, we combine the crankshaft mark and the middle mark on the front cover, then slowly turn the distributor clockwise / counterclockwise and, as the spark passes, we stop, tighten the distributor. Everything, the ignition is exposed.
There is also a way to install the ignition using a strobe. The method is the simplest, most accurate, but depends on the serviceability of the strobe itself. Stroboscopes are all different in their design, but the principle of operation is the same for everyone, like that of the internal combustion engines themselves)) So, we connect the stroboscope power wires to the terminals and the pulse signal receiver wire directly to the cap without removing it. The device will immediately show the car rims. The setting is made at revolutions XX. We mark the mark on the crankshaft with a bright white marker or corrector. We direct the stroboscope to the pulley and under the influence of the flashes emitted by the stroboscope with a certain frequency, we will see the marked mark motionless. We move the distributor in the right direction until the necessary marks are aligned, tighten. I will make only one note: if the mark, under the influence of the strobe beams, does not stand in one place and runs back and forth, this indicates a malfunction in the ignition system (mainly a capacitor or contacts).
Good luck with the repairs and on the roads. The next post will be devoted to the complete bulkhead of the DAAZ carburetor with a full photo report.
Adjusting the ignition by ear
The process takes place at idle speed of a running, warmed-up engine (if necessary, you can slightly tighten the suction to ensure stable operation).
- The nut securing the distributor housing is loosened, after which it begins to slowly rotate in different directions.
- In the position where the engine speed will be at its maximum, you need to try to “gas”. If, with a sharp press on the pedal, no interruptions, pops and shots occur, and the acceleration of revolutions is rapid, then the required position has been found.
- From this point, turn the distributor body 1-2 ° clockwise, then tighten its retainer.
The last point is necessary so that the ignition is not too early, which creates unnecessary resistance to the rotation of the crankshaft.
Note! Sometimes it is not possible to achieve ideal engine operation due to incorrect operation of the fuel system components or poor quality of the combustible mixture. In such cases, you need to be content with the most optimal solution, and after adjusting the carburetor, re-adjust the ignition.
How to determine early or late ignition
The stability of the engine, its power, fuel efficiency, etc. directly depend on the correct setting and uninterrupted operation of the ignition system. Normally, on four-stroke engines, the fuel-air mixture should ignite at the end of the compression stroke, that is, just before the piston rises to top dead center. This ignition moment is due to the fact that the mixture takes a certain time to burn, after which the energy of the expanding gases pushes the piston down and the working stroke begins.
Late or early ignition is to be understood as a delay or advance in the actuation of the ignition system in relation to the position in which the piston is in the cylinder. In other words, the spark of the spark plug is generated and ignites the fuel-air mixture not at the optimal moment when the piston approaches TDC, but earlier or later than this moment. This phenomenon is called early or late ignition. For this reason, vehicle owners, in which the possibility of self-adjustment of the UOZ (ignition timing) is implemented, often face the need to adjust the ignition.
First you need to turn off the water. For this, a special tap is closed. It is usually installed in every apartment. If it is not there, you will have to turn off the water throughout the house.
In the second step, the system pressure is released by pressing the red button. If it is absent, you can use one of the mixer taps.
Note! Open the tap carefully and carefully. This will prevent heavy splashing of water.
The third step is to remove the item. Using a key, the reservoir is unscrewed. This must be done carefully so as not to damage the flask, since long-term operation leads to sticking of the device.
A little help! The filter is unscrewed in the clockwise direction.
In the fourth step, the cylinder is removed. The rubberized seals located on each side may be reused if the material has retained its softness while remaining firm enough. Before reinstalling the rubber bands, they must be rinsed well, wait until they are completely dry.
Masters also recommend that you wash the removed flask well. For cleansing, the use of modern cleaning agents is not suitable, since the remaining chemicals can enter the human body. This can cause serious illness. Rinse the filter parts only in pre-prepared water.
How to unscrew the water filter
For a person to feel healthy, it is very important that only clean water enters his home. To purify it, many people install special filters that purify water. When they are used for a very long time, they start to clog and need to be replaced. To perform this operation, you must familiarize yourself with the technology of unscrewing the water filter.
Build and install
The cleaning filter is inserted into a well-washed flask. The flask is tightly tightened with a wrench. Then the water tap opens slowly. There should be no leakage between the head and the bulb. The connection must be completely sealed. If leaks are found, you need to turn off the tap again, check the tightness of the connection between the filter and the vessel.
Sometimes situations arise when repeated twisting does not give a positive result. Smudges are found. To solve the problem, you will have to disassemble the product again, check the condition of the rubber bands. They may have been twisted during screwing. The parts must be carefully straightened, then the installation operation must be performed again.
Important! After the completion of the work, it is strictly forbidden to immediately use the incoming liquid.
You need to start draining the water. This operation should take about 10 minutes. The filter will be cleaned of the remaining micro-particles of dirt. If the water is not drained, harmful particles may settle. Once ingested, they become source of serious illness.
How to unscrew and change the water filter
In principle, the filter plays the role of a kind of sponge. To cleanse the incoming liquid, it actively absorbs toxic substances, various dirt, harmful microparticles. After cleaning, the liquid becomes drinkable.
The installed filter requires regular maintenance. His condition must be constantly monitored. In the instruction manual, each manufacturer indicates a specific period of time for the device. Then it needs to be replaced. Usually this period does not exceed 8 months. If such a filter is used in large enterprises, it is replaced much more often. Repair work, as well as replacement are carried out every 4 months.
Before starting work, you should carefully study the manual for working with this model. Manufacturers give detailed recommendations, as well as basic operating requirements.
Water filter design
Of course, before proceeding with the replacement of this part, you need to study its design and structure in advance. A household filter consists of several parts:
- pressure release button;
- replaceable cylinder;
The liquid is purified in the cylinder. Thanks to the installed rubberized rings in the lower and upper part of the cylinder, the ingress of dirty liquid is prevented. After filtration, only clean water enters the flask, which can be drunk.
Different materials are used to make the cartridge:
- Activated carbon.
There are products where manufacturers include rubber seals in the design.
The filter can be used after all the above operations have been carried out. This device has an important function. Human health depends on it. Therefore, his condition must be constantly monitored. If you carry out timely cleansing, you can extend its life.
Step by step instructions: how to unscrew the water filter
In many city apartments and private houses, the owners install filters for water purification. They require periodic removal and flushing.
Consider how to properly unscrew products of different types without damaging the pipeline or the filter flask.
What to do if it is difficult to unscrew?
In case of difficulty in opening the filter housing, you can use the tools at hand. a rag on the handle of the key (to avoid slipping in the hand), the use of a different type of keys (since a special one is made of plastic).
Also, extraordinary methods of unscrewing the main filter are offered:
If all attempts fail, it is necessary to call a master specializing in the installation and maintenance of water filtration systems.
General algorithm: which way to unscrew and how to reassemble
The first sign of a clogged filter is a decrease in pressure in the pipeline (water is slowly accumulating, there is not enough pressure when the shower is turned on).
Consider the procedure for dealing with a similar situation:
- Shut off the water in the area where the filter is located. This can be a valve in front of the meter or a faucet in front of a filter with cartridges.
- Drain the remaining liquid from the filtration system using a water tap or a valve for clean water on a cartridge filter.
- Place napkins or a low container under the filter, since when unscrewing, water will still drip.
- Unscrew the thread (counterclockwise) using a specialized wrench (supplied with the filter) or use a suitable wrench, adjustable, gas wrench (for a sump located in front of the water meter).
- Pull out the filter element, rinse it thoroughly in the container (item 1), you can use a brush or rag. Some elements require periodic replacement (in carbon filters, fine cleaning).
- Insert the element into place and screw the filter tightly (clockwise) without pinching the thread.
- Open the water supply, wait a little. Run a dry cloth over the joint, checking for leaks.
- In case of leaks, tighten or replace the sealing elements.
To flush or replace the mesh, it is necessary to unscrew the hermetic plug in the form of a nut.
- Collect water in a container for washing the mesh.
- Prepare existing tools. 2 wrenches (of the right size) or adjustable wrenches, you can use one gas wrench.
- Turn off the water supply to the filter clockwise (usually a valve in front of the meter or closer to the riser).
- Relieve pressure in the system by opening a cold or hot water tap on the mixer (depending on which line needs cleaning).
- Place a cloth or container on the floor for the remaining water that will flow out after opening the nut.
- Choose a wrench of the required size for the nut or use an adjustable wrench.
- With the second key, hold the nut with which the product is screwed into the water pipe in order to stop the scrolling of the entire unit together with the line (it is more convenient to use a gas one).
- Slowly applying force counterclockwise, try to unscrew the nut covering the filter mesh.
- After breaking the plug, you can further unscrew it by hand.
- Pull out the mesh and examine it. If there is a lot of rust and debris on it, then it is better to replace it. If, after brushing in water, it looks normal, refit.
- If there is a strong coating of rust on the mesh, it is recommended to purchase a new product.
- See the presence of a fluoroplastic gasket on the plug. If it is worn out, you can rewind the FUM tape.
- After installing the clean mesh, screw the plug back into place.
- Open the water inlet valve.
- Check the presence of moisture at the threaded connection with a dry cloth.
It got its name due to its location on the main pipelines. Flasks into which filter elements are inserted are made of plastic or stainless steel.
To get to the cartridge, you need:
- Shut off the water supply and bleed the remaining water by pressing the button on the flask lid (you can open the mixer tap).
- Unscrew the filter thread counterclockwise with a special wrench that wraps around the flask. You need to make an effort for the filter to start rotating.
- In case of failure, wrap a rag around the handle of the key for ease of application of force. If there is free space, you can use a gas wrench.
- Rinse an open container in water.
- Replace cleaning system cartridges.
- Check the condition of the rubber seals. Worn, hardened gaskets require replacement, otherwise, after screwing, the tightness of the system will be broken.
- Place the flask back. Tighten tightly, but carefully, as you can damage the plastic key or the thread itself.
Cartridge cleaning systems under the sink
In urban apartments, owners often prefer to install a filtration system under the kitchen sink. This is convenient due to the saving of free space, as well as the proximity to the valve of purified water.
This system is usually equipped with several stages of cleaning, in some cases, including cleaning with reverse osmosis. It requires periodic replacement of cartridges according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Consider the order of filter maintenance:
- Close the water supply valve to the filters.
- Place a basin or other container under the sink.
- Open the valve for treated water and drain off the remaining water.
- Disconnect the flexible tubing at the inlet and outlet of the system.
- Unscrew the housing with a special key.
- Take out the old cartridge.
- Rinse the housing thoroughly without using cleaning agents.
- Replace the cartridge with a new one. Make sure the direction of the inserted element is correct.
- Tighten the body by hand, and then, using a key.
- Carry out this operation with all cleaning chambers.
- Check the system for leaks at the threads and pipe connections by opening the water supply valve.
Better to follow the above tips. Otherwise, you may not achieve the desired result, as well as accidentally damage the water main. For those who doubt the end result of the work, it is better to call a competent specialist.
What is an anchor rod and why is it needed?
Before proceeding directly to the adjustment, let’s figure out what this anchor rod is and why is it needed.
There is a metal rod in the neck of the guitar. It is called an “anchor rod” (or simply “anchor”). The truss rod strengthens the neck and compensates for the tension of the strings that are trying to bend the neck, but the truss does not allow you to do this.
Because wood is not a very stable material, then the neck mushroom of a guitar is not a constant value. Due to seasonal fluctuations in humidity and temperature, it tends to change slightly. Or, let’s say you jumped on a plane with your guitar and, from a dry, hot January apartment, moved to even hotter and more humid Thai beaches. So, in this case, the deflection can also change.
What’s the weather! It’s trite, they changed the strings to a thicker caliber and that’s it. the deflection has changed, tk. the force with which the strings pull the neck has also changed. This, by the way, is the most common reason for the need to adjust the anchor.
So, in order to somehow control this process of changing the neck deflection, an truss rod was invented, which is installed in the guitar and allows this very neck deflection to be tuned.
Anchor rods are different and look something like this:
The picture below. Loose anchor. He is under the number 1. It is not difficult to see, straight.
The tension on the strings pulls the neck of the guitar up. Those. the strings twist the neck. Unclear? Well, imagine the bow that Robin Hood fired from. So the bow itself is our neck, and the bowstring is the strings.
Tightening the truss nut causes deflection in the opposite direction of the natural deflection of the neck of the guitar. This allows you to compensate for the strength of the strings pulling the neck up. If we take the same analogy with a small bow, then with the help of an anchor we are trying to make the bow itself more even. That is why, in this figure, anchor 2 with a tightened nut is bent upwards. The nut turned clockwise.
Anchor 3, from the same pattern, further increases the neck deflection. The nut turned counterclockwise.
Deflection or relief of the neck of the guitar
If you take a guitar and pull, for example, the sixth string (lower Mi (E)), then you can see that the maximum vibration amplitude will be approximately in the middle of the string.
And since the amplitude in the middle is maximum, then it is in this place that the string does not touch the frets during vibrations and there is no nasty bounce when playing, it is necessary that the neck has a slight deflection. This neck deflection is also called “relief”. Below are diagrams, exaggerated for clarity, showing what is meant.
In this example, the truss rod is too loose. And the neck deflection is too strong, and the distance between the strings and frets is too great. This can make it difficult to play the strings at certain frets. Naturally, this deflection needs to be adjusted and the truss rod adjusted so that the neck is straighter.
This is an example of an over-tightened anchor rod (reverse deflection). Usually, such a deflection is not observed in nature, but theoretically it is possible. This means that even open strings will cling to the frets, causing bounce and they will not sound accordingly. Need to regulate.
Here we have a normal deflection (or relief) of the neck. And now, finally, let’s look at how to achieve this very normal neck deflection.?
Types of anchors for guitar
There are many different types of truss rods: single truss rod, non-adjustable truss rod, dual action truss rod and double truss rod.
- Single anchor (compression anchor). It can be tightened, thereby giving the neck back deflection and straightening the neck. You can often find re-releases of 50s. 70s guitars, as well as on other guitars made according to old (vintage) specifications. (By the way, an interesting fact is that the very first Fender Telecaster, nee Esquire, had no truss rod at all.)
- The non-adjustable truss rod fits in some guitars (although not as common) and only provides a stronger neck.
- A double-acting truss rod can be used to give the neck a back deflection, but it can also be used to flex the neck straight (upward). Fits on many modern guitars.
- A double truss is when there are two truss rods in the neck. Thus, more force can be given by the anchor rods. This truss rod is used in guitars with strong string tension, such as 5-string bass or 12-string guitars.
Neck deflection and truss adjustment
Do you want to watch ads? Register!
After the first part of the opus “How to tune (rebuild) the guitar”, as usual, the second goes. Today we will try to answer the very question that beginners love to ask on guitar forums.
Yes, yes, exactly about “which way to turn the truss rod”, well, or about adjusting the neck deflection and setting the truss rod, if you like.
Neck deflection and truss adjustment
For starters, there is no such thing as perfect deflection or neck relief. There are just recommendations to listen to. In any case, you will choose your ideal deflection for yourself, because it is individual and depends on many factors: on the strings, the tuning of the guitar, on the guitar itself, the style and manner of playing the guitarist, on his individual preferences, in the end.
Before twisting the truss rod, you need to assess the deflection of the neck. You can clamp the strings at the 1st fret and at the fret where the neck is attached to the body. On my guitar example, this place is shown with an arrow.
While holding these two frets, you need to check the distance between the string and the top of the 7th fret, where the neck deflection should be greatest.
This is the quickest and easiest way to check bar deflection. If the string is on the 7th fret and there is no gap, then you have a perfectly straight neck or reverse neck deflection. This means that you need to adjust the truss rod.
There is also another, but similar way.
In order to measure the correct deflection of the neck, you can use a half-meter or whiter steel straight strip or ruler, placing it in the center of the neck along its length. In this case, the guitar should be tuned, and straighten you on your lap, as if you are going to play. If you do this procedure with the guitar lying on the back, the neck will be in an unnatural state. Gravity and possibly a sloping headstock will cause slightly different deflection, confusing the measurements you are trying to take.
Make sure one end of the ruler touches the center of the first fret and the other touches the last.
Now measure the gap between the ruler and the 7th fret. If it is less than 0.15. 0.2 mm, you will have to turn the truss rod nut counterclockwise, thereby weakening the anchor and increasing the deflection.
Loosen the strings before twisting the anchor. The nut should be rolled slowly and carefully no more than 1/4 turn at a time (i.e. 90 degrees). Before checking the deflection again, you need to re-tune the guitar.
Each time you turn the nut, leave the guitar alone for a short while (15-20 minutes). Because the tree has inertia, then the changes in the deflection may not be visible immediately, for this it is worth pause. Some, in general, recommend waiting for several hours, or even a day.
If your check showed that the gap at the 7th fret is more than 0.4-0.5 mm, then you need to tighten the truss rod by turning the nut in the manner described above, but clockwise. Remember to twist gently no more than 1/4 turn at a time, with the strings loosened.
Although, again, the clearance is given as an example, the correct neck deflection will depend on your personal habits and preferences.
Below are pictures of the most common truss nut locations on guitar.
This picture shows the most common truss rod adjustment tools: an Allen key on the left and a box key on the right. If you are adjusting the deflection of the neck with an anchor “like on old Strats”, then you need a flat screwdriver.
Generally speaking, it is not recommended to adjust the truss rod unless you are clearly not sure you know what you are doing. I would advise you to entrust this to professionals. However, if the head is on the shoulders, and the arms grow from the right place, then this is not difficult.
And in conclusion, a good video with illustrative pictures of an anchor in a guitar.

The reasons for the weak water pressure in the tap
Poor tap water pressure can occur for several reasons. Sometimes. due to a combination of several reasons at once. They can be different:
What is the water pressure in the water supply system is considered low
To start doing something, you need to find out if your water supply is really low pressure. If the indicator is higher than the established standards, the management company and utilities have the right not to take any action.
The optimal indicators of water pressure in the pipeline are prescribed in the official regulatory documents. SNiP 2.04.01-85 and SNiP 2.04.02-84. According to them, in houses up to 10 meters high, 1 atmosphere is considered the normal value. If the height of the house exceeds 10 meters, the pressure must be at least 2 atmospheres.
Exact pressure standards:
- 0.3–6.5 atmospheres for cold water;
- 0.3-4.5 atmospheres for hot water.
If the indicators in your apartment go beyond these ranges, this is a reason to file a complaint with the management company or higher authorities. Anything within this range is normal. And no matter how you like it. I can’t fix the pressure
For hot water
All of the above reasons. To make the water hot, it is also delivered through the main water supply, then heated, and it goes the same way. along the riser, pipes in the apartment, to the tap. Therefore, a weak pressure of hot water can be caused by all of the above reasons. clogged aerators, filters, pipes, worn out piping, mixer breakdown, pumping station malfunction.
Equipment breakdown. Each apartment building has installations that are responsible for heating and supplying hot water to apartments. If they are out of order or they have lost their settings, this will affect the water pressure. For example, if the heating equipment breaks down, you might get cold water instead of hot water.
Column breakdown. Columns or water heaters are installed in private houses and some apartments that do not have hot water. They can only heat water in taps or are also used to heat a home. Any breakdown of such equipment also affects the pressure. For example, if some of the heating elements are out of order, the unit will heat the water more slowly. And if you have set a certain proper temperature, the water will flow more slowly. If not, its temperature will be lower than usual.
Weak water pressure in the apartment. what to do
Weak water pressure in the apartment. what to do
Residents of apartment buildings and private houses are often faced with a weak pressure of cold, hot water. But they don’t know what to do with it, and they just wait for it to increase. We will tell you how to act when the pressure drops, where to go and how to increase the water pressure in the apartment.
For cold water
Clogged aerator. Even in good water, mechanical particles can be present. for example, dust particles, specks, rust particles. The aerator is the mesh part of the mixer that traps these particles. If the water is of good quality. the aerator is not clogged. If the water quality is not very good, mechanical particles are retained in the mesh and thereby reduce the outlet openings. When the aerator is clogged, the water pressure decreases, because the holes in the mesh become smaller, the throughput of the mixer decreases.
Faucet breakage. The mixer has many functional units that affect the head. Any reasons can reduce it. for example, limescale, clogging of the mixer itself, faucet, failure of gaskets, and other parts. Breakdowns can cause leaks: for example, the faucet starts to drip.
Clogged coarse filter. A so-called coarse filter is installed in front of the resource consumption meter. It is also called an oblique filter or mud collector. Before entering the apartment, water passes through it. The filter acts as an aerator. it retains rust, sand and other mechanical impurities. If the filter becomes clogged, water flows through the filter more slowly. This causes low pressure in the water supply.
Defective pumping station. Pumping stations are installed in apartment buildings. They ensure normal water pressure in the taps on the upper floors. In most cases, such stations are equipped with automation and are turned on only when necessary. for example, if water is simultaneously turned on in several apartments on the upper floors. If the automation fails, the pumping station will not work. If the equipment itself fails in it, the water supply will be ineffective, the pressure will also decrease.
Clogged pipes. One of the main reasons for a weak water pressure is pipeline clogging. Sand, limescale, rust particles and other chemical compounds, mechanical particles settle on the pipe walls. Over time, they turn into a thick layer. Because of this, the diameter of the pipe decreases, and, consequently, its throughput. Water is supplied in smaller volumes, therefore pressure decreases.
Worn out pipeline. An old water supply system usually has a low pressure, because the pipes in it can no longer transport water efficiently. This is partly due to clogging. Also, small holes may appear in the pipes. they are not enough for a powerful breakthrough, but some of the water is wasted, so the pressure in the taps is lower. If we compare new and old pipelines, in most cases the pressure in the latter will be lower even with high-quality, timely maintenance.
Wrong plumbing diagram. When mistakes are made in the design of a private house or an apartment building, water does not flow properly at some points of consumption. Due to incorrect wiring, the head in some taps is reduced or absent altogether if certain consumption points are used.
How to understand what is the reason
If your apartment has a weak pressure of hot water or low pressure of cold water, first try to find out what is the reason. Check all the taps. in the kitchen and in the bathroom. If there is low pressure in only one, the cause is in the mixer. Check the aerator and the mixer itself. Also, the reason may be in the flexible hose. it has a smaller cross-section compared to the pipe and can be clogged at the junction. That is, if there is a weak pressure in only one tap, the reason is definitely not in the poor work of the management company or public utilities. And to eliminate the problem, it is enough to clear the blockage or replace the broken mixer.
If all the taps in the apartment give out good pressure, talk to your neighbors. If everything is fine with them, the reason is the pipeline itself in the apartment. For example, the coarse filter or the pipes themselves may be clogged. Or maybe it’s the wrong scheme. For example, if you cannot wash your hands when the washing machine is running, or the pressure in the taps drops sharply when you turn on the dishwasher, this is definitely the problem.
