  • Today I worked for a couple of hours setting up that sideshaft hit and miss engine to run out in my main garage. Then I went across town for a haircut. (Not much work for the barber now.) Then I worked on a paying design job for a couple of hours. Then I took my "fat man walk" up to the top of the hill across the road from my house and back again. Doctor says my blood sugar is too high, and I have to lose 50 pounds----Diet and exercise!!!.

      Of course it was taken while driving. And going the speed on the dial. Why wouldn't it be?

      The only thing that is 'off" is maybe the oil pressure, the engine may have been idling with the clutch in at that moment. Engine temp looks OK to me.......

        • Discovered that my cat hates me...like actively hates me. Have been learning (read: watching YouTube) how to tie paracord woggles to replace the ones my son keeps losing h we're up to three so far so I've even got round to learning different styles! Thought it'd be cool to tie a (small) monkey's fist. So I did and hung it for my cat to play with. My wife finds out today that he'll very happily play with the un-tied end....but totally, and pointedly, ignores the tied end. Bah, my cats more of an arse than I am! *sigh* First world problems, eh?!

          • Did a simply upgrade to my Battery Charger,had 12" plastic wheels that when traveling across gravel thought the guts were going to shake out of it.Went to the dump today and spotted one of those children carts that people tow behind there pedal bikes.Wheels were perfect 20"X1-3/4",just had to change hole position and tap 1/2" NC in drill press.

            • Tundra--that looks really great. We're not allowed to scrounge from our dump anymore, and it's probably just as well or I would be bringing home as much as I took.---Brian

                  • refilled a Sodastream CO2 canister with some dry ice, kids played with the left overs AND they get fizzy water/ juice with their dinner once the dry ice in the canister finishes sublimating

                        Same system here in most. Sucks big time.

                        • Maybe she read about the "water-fueled car" and decided to try it?

                          It seems that only enriched (deuteride) hydrides are used in thermonuclear weapons and reactors, and thus regulated and unavailable to most consumers. However, other hydrides can be purchased for several hundred dollars and up:

                          http://www.hydrogencomponents.com/hydride.html

                          It looks like chemical storage of hydrogen using hydrides, as well as other means (such as ammonia) offer volumetric efficiency and safety comparable to fossil fuels (gasoline), whereas compressed hydrogen and cryogenic liquid hydrogen may be impractical.

                            • Culvert repair Warren Road

                              I saw a dump truck drive by and stop next to the culvert at the NW end of my property, where the heavy rainstorms over the past couple of years had washed out most of the previous repairs. They were going to use some really heavy rip-rap this time:

                              • Today I got the Air Dryer for the Yard Sale Plasma Cutter. So between honey do's and finding the correct fittings, I finally got the thing hooked up and made a few cuts, Copper, Stainless and Mild steel. I was very pleased. Now I have to find the settings that work best for the cuts I need to make. It's not a cut and dried operation. It's a cheap HF outfit, and I was able to make some cuts that I was surprised with. I think I'm going to like this thing. It was the first time I have ever even seen one in operation, and I was the operator. I like it.
