This is why we have warning labels, like the ones on food, that state: "DANGER! Contents will be hot after heating!"

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Ungood Bill! Hope you can heal up quickly! As my Dad would always say, "it'll feel better when it quits hurtin'" Now you are semi-bionic like a bunch of us. I had one screw out of 13 in my knee that had to be taken out after a year, but it was because the bone chipped off, and it exposed the side of...

Re: Made a shop press

I got ya beat on price! The H-beam and channel I used was from some platforms we built for bolting a few raises. Normally, we just leave stuff like that with the client, but they wanted it gone. (their loss.....also how I got a couple steel benches) Wasn't worth shipping back to Canada, and the job ...

Re: Made a shop press

Mine are 1" 1045 TG&P, and I've had no problem. Only reason I used the 1045, was I had some leftovers laying around. So.....a bit larger in diameter at 25.4 mm, and a bit greater yield. 36 ksi for mild, vs 40 ksi of 1045. Maybe that's all it takes, and it's closer than I thought? I didn't run the nu...

Re: 1911 Project

I know what you mean Glenn..... I have a friend that was a PPC national champion. In his 70's now, and still shoots some competition, but he uses a red-dot the last few years. I have noticed, that it takes me longer to get my focus on the front sight too. I had the same problem welding. Strike an ar...

Re: Rodents like wiring.

In regards to the home run grounds we were discussing, one of the benefits is that it's harder to lose everything. If common ground is, somehow, interrupted, everything would shut down. I can only assume that the intention of the engineers was to avoid such a thing. Better to lose one feature than ...

Re: Made a shop press

Hey.....and there ya go! Looks good! No cost really, other than your time! That's a good thing. You can spend the money you didn't spend on something else! ;) I built mine out of stuff laying around as well, including the air over hydraulic jack I pulled out of a scrap metal bin, and fixed by replac...

Re: 1911 Project

Nice Glenn!

I've never shot bullseye with a dot. No doubt would take some practice for me to maintain the speed.
I have plenty of friends who do no. Bullseye, and other things.

Re: Rodents like wiring.

The engine ECM....sure, but each and every light, and every electrical component? Why. Most likely to guarantee operation (reliability). Redundancy is one approach. Boeing would have benefitted by that concept with their Max. H I can assure you, after maintaining Normets, the many models they produ...

Re: Rodents like wiring.

I couldn't find any pics of that particular truck when it was done.

But here's a NT-100 Remix Truck.
