  2. And the worst moral and ethical administration in...

    And the worst moral and ethical administration in a long time. I love it when everybody falls back on this administration's handling of the economy - an economy basically rescued by Obama - and...

    The country is already being trashed. Biden can't do much worse than that pumpkin faced shit gibbon that is sitting in the Oval right now.

    He is being responsible and not spreading C19 by being careful about where he goes and what he does. He doesn't have his staff closing off seating to force a small crowd to get closer together like...

    Or an 18 year old male that doesn't want to register at all. And really, it should be all or none.

    The big problem with restarting schools isn't the kids, it's teachers, many of whom have one or more health issues that don't play well with Covid-19. If schools aren't real careful a lot of teachers...

    Don't know about lifting manhole covers from a vacuum created by a car, but I have seen manhole covers lift up several inches and move out of position during severe flooding in our area.
  8. Most who complain just do not like his style of...

    Most who complain just do not like his style of being a salesman and a successful business man. He is one of the MOST unsuccessful business people in America. Seems the country wanted him for...
  9. How can it be extended to bashing Biden's family...

    How can it be extended to bashing Biden's family members? Yet that is one of Agent Orange's targets. Trump's kids are as criminal as he is. I predict lots of future investigations.

    I've made two 12" faceplates, one for our 15 x 50 Clausing/Colchester manual and one for our Haas TL1. The Clausing uses a D1-6 mount. I made the cam lock pins and cut the spindle nose taper right...

    I'm not sure I'd use one for anything that would rotate very quickly. Not talking about a potter's wheel, but a lathe backplate or something like that. Probably be OK 99.9% of the time, but if...

    Really? That's not what all the polls show. That is what you wish, but wishing doesn't make it true.

    Given he was elected by a minority of the voters and that polls show that his approval rating is underwater and that most of his initiatives are OPPOSED by the majority of the poulation, saying that...

    Too many unthinking and uninformed tribalist's unfortunately.
  15. As to putting a band around a faceplate - it...

    As to putting a band around a faceplate - it would be less work to just get a steel face plate, BUT, if the OD of the faceplate was smooth and true, and you had a slightly undersize steel band, you...

    Would you necessarily have to have a 15"? The stresses would go down if you picked something like a 12". Just wondering.

    If the parting line was PARALLEL to the vise jaws the clamping force would be PERPENDICULAR to the parting line, wouldn't it?
  18. I've never tried to drill machinable ceramics so...

    I've never tried to drill machinable ceramics so right up front I will make that known. Based on the properties of most ceramics - they break under tensile or shear forces, not compressive - I would...
  19. Well, in a perfect world it takes as much energy...

    Well, in a perfect world it takes as much energy to raise water 200 feet or miles or whatever as you get from letting it back down again. Our world is less than perfect, so the inefficiency involved...
  20. Several folks, myself included, have pointed out...

    Several folks, myself included, have pointed out that there are short range forces that could come in to play at very close distances. I do not know what distance that might be but I agree that there...

    I take it that the OP does not wear corrective glasses. I do and all the full and part timers we employ do also. (We're old farts...) None of us like to wear glasses and something over them like...

    The "field proof" of fluid physics is exhibited every day in numerous examples. Every hydrualic and pneumatic system operates based on pressure/force/area relationships. Every water distribution...
  23. Well, the argument is settled as far as I'm...

    Well, the argument is settled as far as I'm concerned. One of the tactics used by irrational skeptics (and I'm fully supportive of RATIONAL skepticism) is to continue to voice doubts by challenging...

    An internal support anchoring the front and back walls together is a neat way to strengthen things up. If you treat the glass wall as a simple beam, cutting the length in half while supporting the...

    I think we all did the math and once we determined the correct values for a couple of terms we all got the same answer. This is not a complicated problem with lots of hidden factors, it's a simple...
