    Thread finish quality is poor

    Oemeta actually has a distribution center here local. I pay a local tool vendor, but I get it right from Oemeta not the vendor.

    OT: Auto Battery Life Question...?

    On the Optima, if your running them dead and expecting them to charge back up, are you buying the correct batteries. Most people buy the Red top standard, but you need the Yellow top "Deep Cycle" if your running them dead and wanting them to charge back up. When I worked in car audio shops, we...

    OT: Auto Battery Life Question...?

    Yeah I worked as a car audio tech for way too many years, I only buy Optima batteries too. My brand new Subaru battery died after only 2 years, Red top time, last year. Last week the new/used forklift battery died, we haven't been using it a lot, so wasn't getting a charge often. So Yellow top...

    Which is better for copper: cutting or forming taps?

    Tall ceiling & I want a mini split. Advice please?

    What are you smokin? The "faced" fiberglass batts/rolls are "faced" with a vapor barrier(not a good one but), so you don't need to cover it. un-faced has no vapor barrier so must be added, unless a in between area, like internal walls, or a ceiling where it may not be needed depending on params...

    Loud sound from Speedio, sheet metal sound, any ideas?

    My DM2 had a couple loud bangs, I took off the way covers, sure nuff, screw head too big, bent he covers out a RCH, and swapped to a shorter screw head, and wallah! I have had loud cover slapping on special ops, I just change the G0 to a G1 all by by. :D

    Tall ceiling & I want a mini split. Advice please?

    I think this is the case of Harry Homeowner. Most Minisplits now use inverter tech so can widely adjust, and the issues of oversized short cycling aren't really applicable or at least as much with variable speed compressors. In the Ops case he also has excess humidity that will lower the...

    Tall ceiling & I want a mini split. Advice please?

    Yeah if you have high humidity in the shop like we have, AC system isn't enough. Also all the water condensing on the AC lowers it's efficiency. I have 2200 sq.ft. 15ft ceilings. two 32k mini splits 3 industrial dehumidifiers Quest 205,225 And if humidity is 45% or above it gets yucky still...

    G53 move but not at rapid?

    My DM2 would slam the way covers on a similar scenario. I just changed the rapid to a G1 move, and the fastest feed rate. Problem solved.
