|Thread: Steam regulator|
Years ago I was involved in a small amount of commercial steam equipment installation and used Spiral Sarco parts and their knowledge.
Whilst I appreciate that they are concerned with full size things there is a wealth of know how on their website which might prove interesting to some, calculations, visualisations of valve internal etc.
|Thread: A Certain Age|
It's not just me then, thank goodness.
The number of times recently when I've walked out 9f the kitchen thinking "I'll look that up on the computer". Then to sit there looking at the blank search engine screen thinking "what was it again?"
|Thread: Pop ups on my Samsung phone|
You could also try using DuckDuckGo instead of Chrome.
|Thread: Travelling in Tiers|
It's tough for my sister in law. She lives in a their 3 town with the main shopping areas located in teir 2 areas.
|Thread: New Lathe at Lidl|
I know, you feel wasted some days don't you?
|Thread: The Museum of Retro Technology|
Thanks for that.
|Thread: magnetic clutch|
Had one in my Subaru Justy years ago, great device.
|Thread: Cutting Small Discs out of Glass|
You can also get hole saws with diamond grit edges, not sure if any sizes would be suitable.
|Thread: C0 Lathe Blowing Fuses. Control board short?|
Cheeky question but have you checked the power lead?
|Thread: For the latest in PC fashion! (Anyone here with a Master's Degree?)|
I was a little confused with their description of the glass. Is 'outwardly curving' be the new 'convex'?
|Thread: adjustable motor mounts|
Depending on the size of your slots would a zebeddy c-channel fixing be any good?
|Thread: Experiences with cordless drills|
It is possible to open up your battery pack and replace the nicad cells.
|Thread: High Temperature Air Source Heat Pumps for Domestic Heating|
Steve, I was going make a suggestion regarding the Scandinavian options as it was raised many years ago when I was involved in the trade.
Although dry air obviously has an impact you would also find that they used a wider fin spacing on the coils. This reduced the don't problem because the ice could not combine with the ice on adjacent fins and allowed much quicker defrosts.
Robert Atkinson: Recommending single splits over multis indicates lack of skill/knowledge regarding the installation.
|Thread: Home Automation Technique|
If you feel like making use of your Arduino knowledge then Indestructibles have a Dewpoint controller which is the best way of monitoring your conditions.
|Thread: Shopvac Recommendations (Hoover, Vacuum Cleaner, Dust/Chip Collection)|
As you have a few machines would a central vacuum system, home made of course, be a worthwhile thought?
Rigid plastic tube from each machine back to the vacuum with a local, short, flexible plugged in as required.
|Thread: Lathe electrical drawing|
Shouldn't the foot switch only enable the motor when there is a foot on the pedal, rather like a dead man's handle?
|Thread: Problems reading from a 3.5" floppy disc|
Try a disk cleaner in the drives.
Are the drive at the same temperature? Disks and drives expand and contract which can put the tracks out of alignment.
|Thread: Burgess BK3 MK2 capacitor|
Do we know the required capacitor voltage? This is almost more important than the uf rating.
|Thread: Tachometers sensor magnet|
Make sure that you stick the magnet the right way around, you just know that it will happen.
|Thread: Use of 2 front wheeled motorcycles on the TdeF|
Mind you Piaggio started it with their MP3 scooter.
