    If you worked 55 years, you'd have seen countless people blow in and flame out soon after. You'd recognize that the ones who did that were almost always the ones who expected everyone else to tell...

    With a hand drill, you're guaranteed to get a seat that is not parallel to the mating surface. I assume you have very loose requirements for fit and finish and function.

    A belt sander would work wonderfully on a cast iron, low compression tractor engine's head. It all depends on how fussy the engine is.

    That BP R8 milling head looks like it would work....if you...

    I don't know. But why would it matter how wide the building is? The door (opening) width is all that should matter. That is assuming you have vertical studs on either side that hold up the header....

    The simple fact is no one is rebuilding engines anymore. By 'no one' I mean the average person.

    As noted above, the modern gas engine will last 'forever'.....and even if it doesn't not too many...

    It bothers me I ordered my model D83 Swedish Sure-Grip Suck Machine from an ad here, but I'm not allowed to discuss it.

    On some engines you can get away with murder. On other engines, not so much. I generally think any of the 4 cylinder aluminum headed engines...not so much. They're designed on the edge to begin...

    My opinion is you can do it - but you can't do it with repeatability and reliability.

    I would think by now a dedicated head cutter-machine would be fairly easy to buy, and not too costly. That's...

    I'm guessing (could be wrong) that car was sprayed with water-based paint. If you clear it with normal clear it could react.

    The electric motor is probably the closest you'll come to perpetual motion, at least as far as being high efficiency. It's not hard to design a motor - a fully useful motor - that hits 98%...

    What's perhaps more interesting in the statement that 'a perpetual motion machine would need to be 100% efficient' is the idea that a machine that is 100% efficient would also be 100% useless. It's...
  15. It's interesting that the majority of you think...

    It's interesting that the majority of you think perpetual motion cannot exist. In fact, all of you seem to think that.

    I have news for you - your ideas are outdated and so is your understanding...

    As the founder of the science known as Namerology, I can assure you that any business which includes 'Ameri' in its name is a sure loser.

    If any delivery or truck is scheduled to arrive within any window, and doesn't, I won't wait around. If it reached 4PM and no truck, at 4:01PM I'd leave.

    I dislike making multiple parts at once, in general.
