    Well, thanks for describing what you did to fix the gear problem. It seems to have been effective, as it should have been, since the idea makes sense

    Zamak IS NOT SUPPOSED TO CONTAIN LEAD. That is what you should have said.

    Problem is, lead makes it mold better, flow freely,and the molders loved it. So they seem to have ADDED just a touch of...

    It's actually the lead which seems to be at fault per what I have read about it, but it probably does not matter when you have a piece that swells up. It's just as much of a problem either way.

    Thanks.

    I sold mine for $200. You did far better.

    I may be MIA again, as I am going up north again to take care of family business for a while.

    I had one, I used it for a year or two, I know what it is, and I am calling it what it is. It is a pure POS.

    Note that I USED IT FOR A YEAR OR TWO.

    You can use a POS, and get good work out of...

    You probably have some sort of county building standards, especially for foundations. That does...

    Wyup has a point, but the problem is that ANY concentrated energy storage system is going to be something of a "bomb".

    A gasoline fire is not a nice thing to be in, but it is still a "low level"...

    Some of the "debunking" of recycling was actually seeing the disposal of contaminated lots. If the lot has stuff that is not recycleable, it may be rejected and has to be landfilled. Those loads...

    You need better hardware stores. One here is pretty old-fashioned, and they have handles, and not too expensive. I fix rather than replace, partly because I cannot even buy, at any price, the...

    Ummmmmm..... That is already done. Here, at least, including the regular biomass (not garbage type compostables). There is nearly always more in the recycling bin than the actual trash. Add...

    Many places are claiming a goal of eliminating fossil fuel plants. Germany has, for instance., and as I understand it, some US states have expressed the goal a well. Doing it would be another thing...

    In some ways, the lighter the lathe, the MORE benefit it would have from bolting down.

    Heavy ones may settle better, and can be adjusted partly with the foot screws. Light ones do not, and...

    At the rate that states and countries are setting a goal of eliminating base load plants (coal/gas/nuclear), electricity will become much more scarce and probably not available "at will" as it is...

    New Ford Ranger is NOT "flex fuel", the old S10 was, but I never used E85. Corn liquor is not alcohol, it is a variable alcohol-water mix. You cannot distill pure alcohol from water, the vapor...

    This is very true. But I suppose "loose" doe not have to be a half inch of free motion, it can mean just not quite snugged, so that there might be only 0.020" of movement, or less. That would cut...

    Was polarity marked? or did you have to check it?

    Were you just lucky?

    Most of the batteries I have seen do not show polarity like the pic above does.

    I think he meant local grid.... fire burnt the poles, etc. Or the downed pole started the fire... Basically a local power outage related to the problem causing the evacuation.

    I think the scenario was having no charge, or very little, and having to evacuate ahead of the fire on short notice.

    The same situation can occur with having no gas in the tank, but at least in...

    You CAN use the 208 panel, If the voltage to ground is rated 300V, as it probably is.
