    I noticed that North Korea doesn't have any stations. Anyone surprised?

    My mother who recently passed away at 99 was a very accomplished artist. She did portraits and copies for people all over the world. She was often commissioned to paint copies for museums of...

    I think mhajicek is exactly right. There may not even be a name for this. The same analogy would apply to counting bees or ants or chickens or anything moving around. You have to stop the motion to...

    Thermite....down here in the Richmond area at least, Home Depot and Lowes both give a flat 10% veteran discount. At H-D all you had to do was show them your VA card but at Lowes you have to jump...

    I had one like that. Never liked it and it ended up in the trash. Seeing is believing.

    Don't freak out if it sounds like you are getting an intermittent cut. This is often the case with a slitting saw regardless of how true everything seems to be.

    Don't let folks beat you up too badly having a piston style tool post. First of all, it is what you have now. Secondly, they are not what I would consider complete crap. I have a piston style on my...

    My wife uses one but I use the natural (pig bristle) toothbrushes because they last so long and the nylon bristles don't go all wonky. I have on occasion used her brush and it does seem to leave your...

    That looks like a pretty standard drum switch. Not much to go bad in those so that would not be my first guess. Take the cover plate off and see if everything is at least connected. Check on the...

    Could it be that they are not really a finished product. Perhaps they were to be threaded on the inside as dust caps for some fancy kind of zerk fitting or something.

    I was trying to do something somewhat similar a while back with a sheet of silver. I tried to back it up with inner tube rubber and did not have very good success. I substituted the rubber for two...

    The only thing I might offer is that the keypad devices have held up better in my shop then touchscreen. Might just be the luck of the draw but that has been my experience. Also you can usually fix a...

    Yup. Very much like that. I also used the same principle to make a piss tube for my sailboat. Much easier then trying to build up enough pressure to make it over the side.

    I wanted to make some PVC rod holders. I found that if you heat up the pipe with a heat gun you can easily form the pipe and when it cools it stays put. I was trying to bell the end of the pipe to...

    What about a shop vac with an extended inlet nozzle that goes to the bottom of the holding tank. Fill it with water and let the exhaust bubble up through the water. I know those "water walls" in a...

    What I don't understand is the environmentalist wanting to cancel the pipeline project and think that will help the environment. Trucking and shipping the oil by rail does not make sense to me when...

    I'm not sure exactly what is going on here but maybe I can help. What are you using an impact wrench on? When you say the allen key is twisting, do you mean it is slipping in the set screw or just...

    There are a lot of ways to do this but you specifically asked for a method that you could use basic hand tools. If I had to approximate what you have there, I would mark out the pattern you want and...

    I hope you can fix that easily but since you don't really have anything invested in it, I would even sell it "as is". I have run into a few of those in lab workshops and they neither make good lathes...

    Most everything changes dimensions with temperature. I think you have too many variables to be able to accurately extrapolate your readings. The part you are measuring is changing dimensions with...

    I second the 4140 PH. I have made dozens of them and they hold up fine. It's a lot easier to make a new pin then fix a wallowed out hole. I just finished making a set for a Ditch Witch backhoe. There...

    I would be very cautious about using heat on old brittle glass. I think the heat might crack the glass due to uneven expansion.
