    If it works, it works. I am glad you have a process that does work.

    And the knife does look beautiful. If you get around to selling a kitchen version, I may want a set.

    I do not have a specific material to recommend, but I would urge you to be sure whatever you pick does have it's electrical resistance/conductance specified. A well respected company that built...

    I can't imagine how you would hold much of a vacuum in a rubber tire. Break them down or better yet, bring back and insist that the seller do it.

    And HOW ON EARTH did all that water get in there?

    This approach may cause your company to lose a client. I would price it both ways and let them choose. Don't let then just see the new, higher price.

    When I buy something I expect that I am responsible for getting the payment into the seller's possession. AND I expect the seller is responsible for DELIVERING the item to my possession. If I pay...

    Have you tried calling the DRO suppliers and asking about this feature? At least the ones not located in China.

    Just to amplify this a bit further, the technique is to start lightly tapping on a part while vise is just starting to tighten on a part. If it rises with that first bit of tightening of the jaws, it...

    Here is the guy who brought it up again.

    I suggest we find out what he is selling and buy tons of it. Then open all the boxes or bottles and then send them back for a refund. Perhaps we can put...

    I hate it when this happens. There must be some weird pleasure that some people get for bringing up these old, old threads.

    There is a lot of advise on what adhesive to use, but nothing that I can see on HOW it is used.

    You say your magnet is being stuck to the end of the 1/4" rod and I fear that, 1/4" diameter circle...

    The thing about glue/adhesives is there is a reason why there are a lot of different ones out there. In spite of the manufacturer's claims, each one is good for some uses and you need to choose the...

    In the absence of gravity and other outside forces, the only consideration you have in moving any mass is acceleration and time. You have a certain mass and a given force will accelerate that mass at...

    The most pressure on the outside of a chamber you can get with a perfect, "hard" vacuum inside that chamber is atmospheric pressure at your location. This is generally about 14.7 PSI. While there may...

    Good point! I was only addressing the initial velocity (there I go again with that word instead of speed) when they are first released from the wheel. It would be quite difficult to calculate their...

    ??? What on earth are you talking about?

    About the only valid point you made is that velocity does have direction. That distinction may be nice to make in a discussion with physicists, but it is...

    Obviously that sheet wall screw hit the conduit dead square.

    No surprise that the hardened screw penetrated the soft steel of the conduit. They are designed (hardened) to penetrate steel studs as...

    I usually take these questions seriously and, unlike many of the other responders here, I am not suffering the after effects of several or more holiday brews.
