  1. I've seen that video 5 or 6 times before. I watched it again. There is something elegant about large mass rotating in almost friction-less babbet bearings.
  2. I don't dislike this flashlight. I hate this flashlight. It gets hot- uncomfortably hot. It has a single button for all functions. To turn it on, you have to hold the button for exactly 1/2 of a second and then release it. Then you have to cycle up through 5 steps to full brightness. If you hold the button for 6/10's of a second when you try to turn it on, the light goes to strobe. Twice, I've had to re-boot it by disconnecting the battery to get it to work. Oddly, the claimed 1600 lumens is drowned out by the 1,000 lumens of my UC35. The only redeeming features are its small size and the magnetic charging.
  3. Does one have to talk dirty to achieve this?
  4. One recovers refrigerant to a recovery tank, not to the virgin tank. When I was in the automotive business, I never used the recovered product because there was no assurance of purity. I sold it to a recycler. Unless you know for sure what's in your guy's tank, I'd be slow to ask for recovered product.
  5. I meant a plastic web to join the two 2x3's together.
  6. There has to be a better way to join the two studs together. I'm positive a plastic web could be employed to provide the same strength at a fraction of the cost.
  7. When I was a kid, a friend and I stuffed a 16 hp engine into a suspensionless mini bike. We had to drill a hole in the seat to install the spark plug. Following an unfortunate incident, we added padding to isolate the spark plug from the seated rider. Luckily, my friend was later able to father children.
  8. Government licensing is no assurance of quality. It equalizes all license holders in the eyes of consumers. If you think a government agency knows the difference between a tee and a wye, you're naive. Licensing makes it legal to do what is otherwise illegal. Plumbing, therefore, is illegal where it is required for plumbers to be licensed. The IRC and the IBC take care of the issue at hand.
  9. I'm betting the engine is a Wisconsin AKN. Cast iron w/ ball bearing mains.
  10. The fact that tile can be removed is proof positive that it wasn't properly installed. One cannot remove a properly installed tile in one piece. If the tile are 12x12 or larger, the ASTM standard includes back buttering and a 1/2" trowel.
  11. Turn on the breaker. If that's not it, by-pass the floor sensor.
  12. I buy lights because I want them, not because I need them. I've been using the same 2 UC35 Fenix for 6 years or so. No failures.
