Re: Backing up computer files

A crashed PC may simply not be able to boot and yet have most files recoverable. Basically booting from an alternate source and reading the "bad" drive may work. I am PC user of average literacy and I know I am 10 times more capable to resolve PC issues that the typical knucklehead at the Office Dep...

Re: Backing up computer files

I use a program I must have payed $15 "Allway Sync 'n' Go". Once set up it will backup intelligently by comparing the destination media to the source media and make them equal retaining the latest file. 2 minutes as often as I feel there is sufficient new data. After is done I remove the Zip drive t...

Re: Small Diameter Slitting Saw

I did not even consider modifying a Woodruff cutter. Is a possibility if the shank length allow for collet depth and reach across all the fins.

Re: 12VCompressor for a Brake Car

I have a Viair compressor to keep my travel trailer tires and recommend it for the way is built and works. Do not skimp on the relay rating, braking 40A at 12V on an inductive load is a challenge.

Re: Small Diameter Slitting Saw

Smallest I could find, even on jewelry supply, was 0.75" dia. Woodrooff cutter are not a solution because the reduced shank portion is very short and I need to cut 7 fins.

There is no easier way to use a RT than understanding how to calculate the hand wheel rotation following the process outlined by Marv. To expand on Marv procedure... at the end one has to crank the handle a certain number of Whole turns Plus a Fraction of a Turn Like for example 4+3/37 4 turns is ea...
