Re: Engineers really know their stuff

Let's discuss Al Gore's idiotic curly light bulbs, which start to work two minutes after you turn them on. I just threw out a dozen which were still functioning. I can't tell you how great it is to turn on the kitchen lights and SEE, instantly.

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

That looks useful, but my feeling is that if I can't prevent scrambled eggs from sticking in the first place, I would rather use Teflon. As for the knives, my grandmother used that brand. After she died, we were allowed to go to the house and pick things we wanted. My relatives went after expensive ...

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

Women never have sharp knives. For a woman, to own a sharp kitchen knife would be like owning a collection of records that aren't total embarrassing crap. It just doesn't happen. To prove a woman lives in a house, all you have to look for are Target knives and Kenny G. If you find Art Tatum or Sviat...

Cast iron is great. Except when it's not.

Re: Are 3D Printers Finally Practical?

No, none of those things occurred to me. Do you think they would help?

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

The handle came loose again. Removed the screw, and I can barely see a trace of Loctite anywhere. No idea what happened. I thought I was smart enough to put Loctite on screws, but now I wonder. Trying again tomorrow.

Re: Removing metal splinters

Sometimes you can get them out with a really sticky tape, like Gorilla Tape. Apply tape and yank off. Make sure you're pulling in the correct direction, or you'll push the splinter farther in.

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

Thanks for all the suggestions. If the screw comes out again, I think I'll go with earlgo's idea.

How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

After doing without nonstick pans for quite a while, I bought myself a new one. Problem: the machine screw that holds the handle on keeps coming loose, which is irritating. I put red Loctite on it, but I have my doubts about it. The area where the screw is will get pretty warm, so I'm afraid the scr...

Re: steamin10 (Big Dave)

Where are the young machinists who should be rising up to replace the old? They must be playing with 3D printers and drones. I hope the hobby prospers.
