    I recently replaced a standard 2-pole 20A breaker on my pool pump with a 20A GFI. I had a few nuisance trips and thought I solved it by preventing my booster pump from coming on while the main pump...

    I don't know about the laws in Az, but California has a law against making zip guns. Any homemade firearm has to be based on an action that has been manufactured. Everything else is a zip gun. Unless...

    Maybe I don't understand the question. 10psi is 10psi whether it's at sea level or 10,000 feet. If the intake air is the same temperature and pressure, then the engine would be consuming the same...

    OT? Impressive mechanical engineering!

    I just watched "Building Chernobyl's Megatomb" on Netflix. It's a Nova episode. I was impressed by the scope of the project. It would be great to be a part of something that big and important. I...

    I've been very happy with my Canon Vixias. The Vixias cover a full lineup from consumer to professional. Good auto features, but Canon's also always give you a lot of control over things like shutter...

    Couldn't you just repair the motherboards? It's usually just bad electrolytic caps or memory boards.

    I still think it was a mistake to get rid of the left foot dimmer. I do like the radio volume controls on the steering wheel though.

    After having used Stoko Kresto, I'll never use anything else. Cleans off the worst grime and leaves your hands feeling smooth. Not waterless though.

    I was looking at this: McMaster-Carr

    It looks like it just wraps on the mounting rod by wrapping, and that friction against the rod holds it in place, as long as the rod meets the specified i.d....

    The oval would normally have bolt holes. It would bolt to an outboard arbor support that clamps on the Y axis bed dovetails. I have the outboard support, but had to make my own overarm support. That...

    You can get heat shrink labels for the Brother label maker, and Dymo makes a good one that can use heat shrink too.

    I've never heard of using any kind of grease to increase conduction in electrical connections, only as an anti-seize, or to prevent corrosion. Silver conductive grease is normally for heat...

    I think what you saw was someone shooting a .50BMG bullet using a shotgun shell as the cartridge, not a .50BMG cartridge. The .50BMG cartridge is not something trivial.

    If they don't have a grinder to shape and sharpen tools, I would encourage the owner to get one. It's the least expensive power tool in a shop. Maybe the owner doesn't understand you need to sharpen...
