    I added a tach to my 14 1/5"

    My purpose was to stimulate ideas. Battlefield colors have worked well for a long time. How about a patch or flag system with various colors and the color of the day not announced until classes...

    The problem with most of the conspiracies is that they require a degree of loyalty that would be difficult to maintain without whistle blowers giving them away. There certainly is collusion or...

    You would have to modify the gun to mount such a device in a way that it couldn't be readily removed and like Fal Grunt, you would see major resistance if you tried to hack on my Fabrique National...

    One more time. In the third picture of the first set of pictures, there are two wires that look brown or reddish brown with push on terminals on the right side of the picture. As they lay there, they...

    It is definitely reversable, probably by switching the two brown (more or less) wires on the right side of the third picture. Disconnect them and check continuity between them. They should read very...

    I made reed switches for a couple of years. I don't know how you could make a ring that would reliably close one mounted in a pistol grip. I can think of various configurations that would work, but...

    Right. I used 1/10 amp as the criterion. Oddly, higher currents can be survivable because they make the chest muscles clamp down on the heart and when they are released, the heart starts contracting...

    I did some tests on electric shocks, at a lower voltage, naturally. In a case like that, 120 volts, it can be fatal but usually not. It is mainly a function of skin resistance, which is mainly the...

    The tachometer shown is an electric one. The first thing to do is see if the original generator is still there, assuming that your lathe also had a tach. Trying to enlarge the picture goes to a site...

    I have often said that August 9, 1974 was the greatest moment for our system. Never mind who was right or wrong or whether he deserved it, The most powerful man in the world in command of the Army,...

    Thanks for the advice. I ran the test and right now am running around 100KBPS down. A lot of things time out before they are loaded. I had a Samsung Galaxy S phone with TMobile but they shut it down...

    OT Has your internet slowed?

    Since Ajit Pai took over the FCC, my internet service has slowed to the point that some applications never download. I mentioned it to someone last night and he had the same problem but thought it...

    Have you looked at the cover plate over the connections. Instructions for reversing are often on its inside. Is there a centrifugal switch? When it starts, after a second is there a click and change...

    I have no memory of where I saw this, but it makes a good point. Bussing students, mostly black, around to schools was intended to give them an opportunity for a better education. A black man was...

    I would definitely go along with firearms safety training for all grade schoolers. As a teen, I had several scary incidents, all with boys who had little or no firearm experience. In a case about...

    So who is orchestrating all this? What is the purpose? Lone gunman are killing a bunch of people then being killed or committing suicide. They must have a strong motive to do something they know will...

    First show the connections. Second, is there a capacitor mounted on it? It may be a repulsion-induction motor, in which there may be a set of brushes under the end bell Doug asked you to remove. They...

    There is a neutral position on an ELSR switch that will keep it off. Switching it to forward or reverse will allow it to start. That is the rotary switch on the tail end of the bed.
