    Unfortunately, that's not a unique experience. I know a gal who practically lost weight during her first pregnancy. She had known thyroid problems but (as I understand it) her doc didn't get her...

    You might be surprised.

    Chlorine with as little as 0.5ppm can cause chemical fatigue in acetal plastic so that the failure stress is below 10 MPa (normally it is 50-70 MPa). See the attached for...

    Try again. Bleach/chlorine is no bueno.

    You might have OK luck if you make sure it is acetal copolymer rather than acetal homopolymer (Delrin is acetal homopolymer).

    Without intending to insult your intelligence, double-check your set screws. A set screw standing slightly proud will slap the belt each time it goes around, and could be another possible driver for...

    Too painful. It's easier for the airlines to wait until it's become a problem and beg for a couple B$ for a bailout so they don't have to pay for any of it.

    I also wondered about that. Maybe the mods thought it was too much like chit-chat? I recall a lively discussion about hot peppers that got locked for that reason, that was another bummer.

    Try again. Veggies are not particularly jam packed with macro nutrients, but they are typically excellent sources of micro nutrients, especially leafy greens. Then you got your legumes which play in...

    I mean, the particular vulnerability that guy used is probably sealed up tight.

    Buddy of mine is an IT system security specialist for the U, and he went out and bought himself a 2012 Focus, "It...

    Heard good things about those, but my diagnosis was in 2020 so nobody was willing to let me try anything on before using it. Did not try that one, but the first couple options didn't fit me well and...

    If his quality handbook does not reference any written process that determines plug repair methodology he can do whatever he wants :rolleyes5:

    Yeah, I did just that a couple years ago. Told my doc I felt like I was 29 going on 60 and he included a couple thyroid levels in my blood work. Once most everything came back rock solid, he told me...

    No hard feelings. I feel like I have interacted with you enough here to know that you are a stand-up guy who has high expectations from himself and others, and doesn't take any crap from people. I'm...

    If you want to be a hardass on repeated reminders, that's fine. But the way your original post came across was not like that. It read like you were advocating to change the shop environment with the...

    If you are confident that the new guy will indeed be an upgrade, and stick around long enough to make it worthwhile, and you can still sleep at night, yes. But the fact that you are asking means...

    In a case like that where all the force is near the end of the tool, yes. For a distributed load like an endmill side-cutting with the whole flute maximum deflection would actually be the fourth...

    That video is really basic, and spends about three seconds describing what the machine actually does. It shines beams of light of varying widths across a part, and detects how they bend, this gives a...

    You might like some of these clips, lots of good footage from SE Asia: Machines forced to Work | Overloaded Truck - YouTube

    I can confirm that this kind of thing is commonplace over there, they...

    If you just need to do it once, call Keyence and tell them you are interested in a demo of a VR-5200 system. It is perfect for this job. Keyence salesmen get attaboys for number of sales calls as...

    Don't think it's a good option for the OP since there's a wall already, but for a single-wall sound damping solution you can do floor runners as 2x6" with 2x4" studs spaced 12" apart but staggered so...

    Yes, it does that, you can change what you are quoting while typing your own post. Like I did, removing the first part of you post and typing [snip] to indicate that I removed content.

    Just don't forget, the most important step you take is not the first one, it's the next one.

    None of that matters, it's the basis of the deal that's sour. You are proposing that someone pay you for the privilege of doing your work, the profit portion of which you are still keeping. If the...

    If you had a time machine and went back to ask the founding fathers, I'd contend that the Federal gov't was NEVER intended to interface with individual citizens in any way whatsoever. In the...

    So, why don't you do all the work you have already that covers the cost of the building, and then on top of that, find other work to make money?

    You aren't making this sound like a good deal....
