    +1 to this. I am sensitive to flickering light up to at least 60 Hz, which means when my inlaws go into the fake christmas tree display area at Bronner's I need to make myself scarce, as it is highly...

    Larry making himself a cool mini cannon, using a couple pennies as raw material? No biggie.

    I can give a +1 to the Keyence optical 3D profiler. We just got a VR-5200 and man, does that thing kick ass! Price tag is not for the faint of heart, but it's in the same ballpark with some of the...

    The buckets full of stuff are probably the accelerants - the things they need to take the gummy polymer base and turn it into cross-linked rubbery stuff. "Buckets" would be a pretty big batch - I...

    If it were teflon, I might say you have a chance at plunging a blade in at a 22° angle and then peeling the whole thing off at once, but that's PEEK, and it's pretty stout for a backup. You can try...

    All these welding stories, gotta throw mine in. Even though it didn't result in an "injury" per se, I could have been killed anyway.

    At my first job, I had put in my 2 weeks, and the boss told me...

    Possibly interested.

    Forgive my ignorance, but it doesn't look to my eyes like there's anything included to mount to a compound or cross-slide. What would be needed in addition to what is shown to...

    $3.5B is the value of their portfolio, we don't know anything about how much revenue they derive from it, nor how much debt they carry on it. Top line is likely somewhere from $100M~$500M which makes...

    I think this should go without saying but I'm going to say it anyway:

    Sounds like you have an existing system and you want to pump up the pressure 10x higher than it was originally. Think long and...

    1. Flip your schematic around. Fat part will be held in the user's hand, skinny part holds the umbrella.
    2. Port the rod (i.e. use a hollow tube) so that air can go through it.

    Yep, so the pitch is 32 and a two-start would have a lead of 16. A four-start could be made with a lead of 8, and it would still have a pitch of 32.

    32 pitch means that there are physically 32 threads for each inch of fastener, and 16 lead means that 16 rotations will advance the...

    I agree, looks like a nice pickup if you're happy with what you paid for it. I might have bought one just like it if I...
