    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...
  2. Have you looked at the cover plate over the...

    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...
  3. Did you read all of my post or the related ones?...

    Did you read all of my post or the related ones? The discussion at that point had drifted to safety and accidents caused by children, which is another aspect of firearms injuries, not about mass...
  4. I have no memory of where I saw this, but it...

    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.

    I have found that the hardest part of designing a new machine and getting it into service is not the technology but keeping the customer's head straight. They can understand design and fabrication...

    You are overlooking a point that should be obvious. People don't usually change their views that much and some of the posters here must have brains that are 30% calcium carbonate, but they die off...

    Sure, it will run on two if you pick the right two, but at reduced power. The armature is being energized four times per revolution, twice positive and twice negative. Note also that the brushes are...

    Worse, I got my first 1911 when I was 19 YO and have owned them most of my life, the point being that I know exactly what one looks like. A friend has an airsoft pistol that I cannot tell from a real...

    One fellow proposed that we give out free drugs, as much as people want, for the same reason that dogs don't chase cars anymore.

    The guy got the brush on backwards. I didn't think to mention it since most motors have brushes that can only be put in one way. That seriously retimed the brush. Fortunately it was the top brush so...
  15. Comparing gun deaths to car crashes or drownings...

    Comparing gun deaths to car crashes or drownings is really pointless since items like cars have a utilitarian use much different from guns.

    Jim Rozen: lynchings had dropped to off to only a few,...

    Well, I will admit that you are persistent. Are you aware that half the people in the world carry a chromosome that makes them tend to violence?

    The Y chromosome: beyond gender determination |...

    You can use separate pots, making speed control a two step operation or use pots with twice the resistance and use zener clamps to limit the voltage.

    Modular 10EE reversing under load.

    A modular 10EE with a 5 hp GE motor I look after needed a brush replaced, which we did with only minor trauma. Now as you bring the speed up running forward, it suddenly reverses, going to a similar...

    I have been working on a somewhat similar problem, a magnetic base drill that had only clockwise rotation to be used for drilling. The customer wants to use it for power tapping in big steel plates....

    Often the biggest problem with conspiracy theories is the number of people and effort required to implement them. An example is the so called Holocaust deniers who claim the US army set it up. It...

    The Maine blew up from the inside, the Gulf of Tonkin was an outright lie, nuclear weapons of mass destruction did not exist, nerve gas did, but what was faked about Pearl Harbor and 9/11? President...

    So what do you say is the real problem? The subtitles in the video are so out of focus that they are almost impossible to read. I don't think anyone thinks shop classes will end the problem. They...

    You really need to read "All God's Children" tracing the life of the person considered the most violent prisoner in the New York penal system. He never met his father and his mother hated him for...

    Why not show things in detail? If this is on line, not print, it can be organized to give a quick rundown on each machine and references to each more complex function. That is the beauty of...

    Re the idea that these guys should learn a manual trade, I remember riding with a friend to an airplane repair facility in Arkansas that was being auctioned. The driver had a small construction...
