    Getting to the crux of the matter: Texas' politicians desperately wanted a market-driven electric grid that was not regulated in any way by the federal government. The incentives were, to...

    I've been slowly retrofitting my basement with LED highbay lights from home desperate. I think they're 21,000 lumens each. I've removed almost all the

    Only time I was at watkins glen, I was taking the Reg Pridmore CLASS session. That's a long track. It was a hot day,

    Damn that's sweet. How long did the scraping job take overall?

    I'm working on one right now, but it's missing the lowest slide. Also the rest of it seems like it had been stored in a septic...

    The single big drawback to the 9A southbend is the rear-mounted drive unit. It makes the bench very deep. Basically the minimum reasonable depth for that, given a flat belt of any reasonable...

    Picture of Texas windmill being de-iced with a helicopter!

    (Rush says that's a windmill, and a helicopter, look what the damn greenies have done!)

    1) how deep does the tapped portion of the hole need to be?

    2) size the tap drill size generously.
