    Auction terms say as "where is as is". They should not move anything.

    I had the problem for several years, mildly in the left heal and significantly in the right. The doctor just wanted me to put $300 dollar wedges in my shoes. I tried some cheaper wedges without any...

    TRboatworks,

    Loved the over the top sarcasm. Amazing how many stopped reading at that first paragraph and went instantly to the reply button. I may have had more appreciation than most as I was...

    No advice hear but I do like the picture that you provided. It provided a lot of perspective about what and how you are making these items. Definitely worth more than a thousand words.

    My understanding of the primary failure mode is (as Digger Doug stated) insulation puncture from the fast rise time of the pulses that VFDs generate. Another failure mode is in the bearings. The...

    Not an expert on this but I thought the output of welders are isolated from ground. Otherwise switching the polarity could be problematic. Was your ground lead connected to a grounded object by...

    It was not possible from the demonstration to determine if the failure was edge corrosion, corroding as the strips were separated or if the corrosion was full penetrating. I suppose it would have...

    It is not good practice to interupt the connections between a VFD and a Motor. This can let the smoke out of the VFD. Unless the two motors are identical, the parameters in the VFD should be set...

    The HVLP guns are gravity feed. But I don't think all gravity feed guns are HVLP.

    You will love a gravity feed gun over a siphon feed gun for several reasons. The gravity feed gun will work in...

    Looking at the dates it looks like Digger Doug dredging up an 8 year old spamming post to an even older post of 14 years ago.

    $10 dollars per hp has been my target price on used three phase motors. If you don't have a lot of time to scrounge for something cheaper I would go for it.

    An as stated, you just may find a...

    Well you have some definite maybes now. My ground 5/6 had 1 definite no vote, a won't hurt anything but could be confusing vote and some not needed votes.

    Ground 5&6 on the equipment side. If an undesired electrical path was made from h1 or h2 to ground this would allow your fuses/circuit breakers to clear the fault. Of course this means you should...

    Check with motor shops. A motor with an injured shaft is worthless as motor and great for RPC.

    Also look for industrial business auctions and even equipment auctions.

    Using all the poles of the start contactor will not give the result that you expect. The first pole to close will take the punishment. However, if you group your caps into three groups and feed...

    I know what I would do but I usually want to shoot my self about half way through with all the extra work I create.

    I have used metal plates on new asphalt to support a 20 ft sea container. The plates sank about a 1/4 inch over a couple of years. This was in a very hot, full sun environment.

    Check the rods for alignment to what?

    The smart ass and correct answer is alignment with the crank. However it is a perpendicularity check with the pins. The inner bore of the new bushing may...

    I would straighten the fences or fence depending on the design. If the fences are two separate pieces manually sand them flat and then adjust them true.

    You can sand them flat by using the cast...

    I just checked my three miter saws with a straight edge. All are straight. What brand saw do you have? I will want to avoid it. From what you are saying, a long piece of material would only touch...

    Yes, wire nuts are ugly. As Thermite said, that is what the cover is for. This is the method that almost any electrician would use. What I find visibly offensive in a junction box is if the wires...

    I don't see where any of your proposed solutions is any more compact than just using wire nuts.

    Run your wires in a circular pattern around the inside of the box and cut the length of each wire...
