    I don't think I would attempt that. Anyone who would drive with the tail wagging the dog and not stop and quickly figure he needed more tongue weight probably isn't that observant and may react too...

    That place looks like nothing but a storage facility. I don't see a run of conduit anywhere. Looks like everything is now getting outsourced, another picture of a simple 3D printed part. I would be...

    I think when it comes to Home Depot and Lowe's the guys working the electrical department are some of the worst.

    I had a friend like that and I ended up right every time. He was restoring a 1974 Corvette at a snail's pace and not doing a very good job on what he did not farm out. It was camped in my garage for...

    Why does Generic Default keep coming here before he goes and updates Kickstarter? I don't think any of us gave him a red cent. That flat out isn't the right thing to do, and I still smell bad...

    Maybe they want new ones. No idea, but back decades ago when my dad and uncle were cops they used to run the cruisers into the ground. Cars were pretty much dead then at 100k miles, the cop cars got...

    I haven't personally known anyone who made a plugged nickel from playing video games, but plenty of kids who were lucky to graduate High School or accomplish anything due to excessive video game...

    It is not a complete relic of the past, but the young man who leaves home at 18 diminishes by the decade, that is a fact.

    Pong was the first one available for home use, arcades had much better games in console form. My issues with video game players is the ones who make it too big a part of their lives. In my day they...

    I wonder if it overheated and there is a dead short somewhere on the windings from the coating being burnt off. I think I would go buy a new one.
  12. I always wonder the breakdown of the under lying...

    I always wonder the breakdown of the under lying cases of our continuing to grow up slower and slower over the decades. When I was in High School in the late 70's the goal of most males was to get a...

    I used to work in So Cal for a large company in the early 90's. For some reason the Mexican guys hated people from El Salvador. A good running gag was I would ask any new hire that came from Mexico...

    When I graduated from High School in the 70's a trainee in a skilled trade like machining, plumbing, carpentry, electrical contracting, etc could start out at around double minimum wage by passing an...

    What type of spam is it when some clown claims no connection to the company they are spamming for? That they discovered the product by accident. Similar to infomercials that try to come across as...

    I believe you missed my point, which is not your fault. If you are in the USA in a state that has extreme environmental regulations and unfriendly to manufacturing, no way in hell you could be a...

    The difference is I try to understand a person's opposing views, like my neighbor who retired from the post office being a Democrat, he votes with his wallet. Around here all I see is hate from our...

    Anyone else notice how the party of supposed "tolerance" (Democrats)spew hatred and disrespect toward white middle aged males? They only "tolerate" your beliefs if you think exactly like they do.

    I have quite a few 5x loupes scattered about these days. One of them in the office desk as I sometimes need them to look at drawings on regular sized paper. I need better lighting also the same desk...

    I frequented the area in Los Angeles where the 1992 riots over the Rodney King incident happened months after things quieted down. The convention center and Memorial Coliseum are in that area. The...

    I think you will spend more than a few hours making even a rough prototype on a mill. I think just to make one on a CNC lathe without any mill work would take a couple hours, of course part #2 could...

    I started out as a manual shop 25 years ago. I can remember many a one off job that all it did was pay for tooling or fixturing equipment.

    How about trying to find a PM member close by with a lathe who subs out mill work? You could do a work swap. I have CNC Lathes and just a manual mill. I have a job soon that needs hexes cut I will do...
