Re: Help ! Please send boat !!

Vu jade.....that feeling you have been there before, but didn't want to go back.... (Not to be confused with Deja vu) I remember this quite well....I was driving through Phoenix quite regularly.... just not 'zactly the year. This doesn't really show the extent of the water damage back then, but give...

Re: Tesla cars

We don't see Tesla's, or other electrics around here. I guess grandma could use one to go to the grocery store, and to get her hair done, but for most folks, not enough range, and whatcha gonna haul in one? Where's the Tesla pickup anyway? When I do go clear to Reno, I fill the pickup. Want to go to...

Re: Help ! Please send boat !!

Monsoons running a bit late this year John? Sounds like someone didn't get the schedule! Caliche is pretty much like concrete, and the arroyos that drained things around there are long since covered up with highways, buildings, and parking lots. I lived in southern Arizona in the 70's, and I find Ph...

Re: Twist drill prices

So you're saying that in the US, you can sometimes buy things even cheaper than in other places in the US; and therefore you pay more [in the US] than consumers do for those products outside the US? Ok, got it. I'm not comparing to other countries....just within the US. Or Canada for that matter. M...

Re: Twist drill prices

You're agreeing with me? I'm opening the champagne. Where is my can opener... The parts and warranty issue is real. The manufacturers generated it in order to fight back. I don't worry too much about it when buying a jacket, however. Some companies that sell grey market stuff have their own warrant...

Re: Twist drill prices

The grey market stuff is mostly counterfeit, fake. Even if it's not, it's smuggled, tax evaded; Your comparison makes no sense. Not true at all. Much of it is the real thing, and it is bought, imported, and sold 100% legally. You're talking to a former patent attorney who dealt with these matters o...

Re: Never enough time

There are several types of LED tubes. The ones I looked at: 1: Direct replacements. You just' plug & play', as they use the existing wiring & ballasts. 2: Single end powered, ballast bypass. Small amount of rewiring required. 3: Dual end powered, ballast bypass. Same as option 2, and requires a bit ...

Re: Tightening a vise

Just for reference, a 3/8"-16 grade 8 capscrew torqued to 35 ft/lbs has a clamp load of 7,000 lbs.

Re: oilless compressors

Without getting into the exotic Copco things, and just concerning the run of the mill oil-less compressors you get from Sears or Walmart or the ranch store.... I bought a 22 gal vertical Craftsman oil-less in 1997....give or take a year or two. A whopping 250 bucks at the time. -6.8 CFM at 90PSI.......

Re: Best Type of Axe for Busting Rotten Stump?

You are missing the metal wedges. Available at your handy dandy hardware store, or Home de Pot I imagine. McMaster and Graingers has 'em. They will keep things tight. With axes, I use two, driven in at about 45 degrees to the wooden wedge. Most hammers, just one will do it. I have replaced a kazilli...
