Is Your vise made of Aluminum?
|Thread: Saving the Planet … or is it ?|
A study posted "on the Internet" stated if all roofs in big cities were white colored it would reflect 10 percent of the heat back. No one thing will fix it all, but a lot of little steps might help.
|Thread: SKY abandoning their satellite customers|
Over here They take what They want, put up the poles and when another Company wants to use the poles, They have to rent (pole rights it;s called) space on the poles. Profit does not trickle down to Land owners. Cell phone towers do pay rent to landowners tho. Once the first permission is given all future right of ways can be increased without any recourse. County ownes something like 40' from the center of the road. We still pay taxes on it all.

|Thread: They see you coming|
I traded a pick up truck in on another newer one. After waiting around for an hour for the deal to be closed I hunted up the salesman to find what was wrong. He told Me They had to call in Their oldest mechanic as the young Boys could not operate a "three on the tree."

How many carry red road flares?
|Thread: UK fires up old coal power plant as gas prices soar|

|Thread: Why do designers do this!!|
The longer it takes to change something out, the more the dealer (stealer) gets to charge.
|Thread: Disposal of swarf|
All metal chips I make gets recycled, darn the cost, just get it to where it gets reused.
|Thread: Governor drive belt|
Skived and endless would work.
Skiving a Bando type belt would work also.
|Thread: Build a Pallet Beehive|
Would those hives make a net gain in the bee population?
|Thread: Aging fingers|
I worked with a Big,Strong Guy who had the carpal surgery done in one wrist. He lost about 1/2 the strength in that hand, which was still plenty left. That is why I did not want surgery. The Therapist said that at that time They would not make the remedy public and it was only used with Therapists Who went to the Courses at Their school. I also tried it with Achillies tendon slowly rupturing and it did not help there. The neck exercises help almost immediately, if You do them and it is not the problem then the exercises cause pain and have to be stopped. Self regulating.
I had carpal tunnel syndrome and quite by accident I found a physical therapist who was trained to do the Hughston set of exercises. I had relief in 2-3 days. My arm had gone atrophic and has fully recovered with no surgery. No other Doctor that I have found around here has heard of them, it is basically a pinched nerve at the base of the skull and the exercises take the pressure off. You might give it a try but seems hard to find.

|Thread: The "Lost art of hardening copper"|
I saw a show that said the copper was used as a saw (or lapping) blade to saw the blocks out. Makes sense as saw marks are visible. What is also interesting is that in South America some of the locals said the old timers () had a way of softening the rock to make it conform to the rock below. They said putting some kind of wet plants on the rocks made the rock soft.
How much would it help if cars all had a solar panel on their roofs?
|Thread: Metric thread dimension wanted.|
Found the Presto Counselor and Down loaded it. MaryLand Metric used to be My go to source but the Company went bust and several places publish the charts and caution is advised.
I have an early version of the Machinist hand book. Printed before Metric was common over here. Many thread charts, much Google. Zeus Book is rare over here, never seen one.
