    Did both my pans this weekend. Everyone has their own opinion on the best way, but I can say that what worked for me was shortening applied with a paper towel to the pans (uncomfortably hot to the...

    A definitive way? Yes. You can hold it up to the bench grinder for a few minutes. If your lungs fill with fluid and you need to be rushed to the hospital, then you can know for sure that it is BeCu....

    For what it's worth back in my college days (University of Michigan Engineering, graduated 2012) just about everything was curved by exam scores, most of the earlier stuff was curved to a C/C+ so if...

    Seems to me that's fancy talk for "do better." Some specific examples: (non-comprehensive obviously, YMMV, etc.)

    - Pay attention to mistakes you make often, and build habits to mitigate the...

    You mean like a sub-forum with a Moderator-maintained (locked?) sticky thread for the simple list, and a place to put threads for more involved discussion about the members? I'd be for it.

    Of course, getting tolerance stacks right up to the limits of function, but not beyond, is hellishly difficult. I've made the tolerances too tight before, but then I always specify "OK per mating...

    Added bold to the part where you answer your own question. I've never heard about deviation stacking either because I always just called it total deviation, or total error.

    I spent a lot of time...

    Why use a 1/16 drill? Center drills are much better for locating due to the body geometry designed to guide a regular drill into the center, they are nice and short and stiff, and best of all, they...

    Thank you! I was pretty close to understanding the points made by text alone, but a picture truly is worth a thousand words. I appreciate the effort you took to make those illustrations.

    Sounds like you answered your own question. There's no reason why you can't thread low carbon steel. It often won't get forged, but that's got little to do with its forgeability, it's mostly that...

    Ehhh, not really sure. Intuitively, it seems to be a balance of penetration and conservation. With zero penetration (thick grease), you'd basically be installing a set screw at the port location....

    I have 240V 3-phase. As it happens, it is also 208V.

    As Archer said, if you have 240V leg to leg 3 phase with a grounded center tap between two legs, you will have two 120V leg-ground legs, and...
  15. Your math is funny here....

    Your math is funny here. 200kg*0.5kJ*(kg*K)^-1*200K comes out to 20,000 kJ rather than 200. You could get 2°C rise out of that mass in one second with your induction heater, but you left behind a 100...

    The first step I would take is to post that very same question in the "transformers, motors, and VFD" subforum of this very site, since it seems more relevant to the topic than a management issue.

    Try DuckDuckGo, they don't save or use search histories to alter results, and don't save or sell your personal data. However, they are still commercial and have a partnership with Yahoo, Amazon, and...

    Yabut... Waste management is so pedestrian. How do you prove that you are making PROGRESS if you spend time and effort to properly do things that you already know are helpful? You can't send a strong...

    The point I was trying to make is that Google Translate is a useful tool, but not infallible. Especially with the Chinese language, you need to give concepts a little wiggle room. Where it says...

    Everyone is so fixated on the LH-RH discrepancy, but am I the only one who noticed that the front toolholder is removable, so you can put whatever you want there?

    To expand upon this, the Japanese language actually has three alphabets:

    Let me take a crack at this.

    A "School" is where you study: e.g. School of Mechanical Engineering
    A "College" is a collection of "Schools" e.g. College of Engineering

    *Ahem*

    Clearly, the threaded rod is intended as a gritty industrial juxtaposition to the shiny spheroid, and meant to contrast the immaculate glass base with its solar panel, which screams out for...
