    The blade style anemometers are good for really large flow areas, like getting windspeed outdoors or something. They're also OK for other areas where, like you said, they're very small compared to...

    I was trying to measure the flow through a fairly wide opening in an enclosure and had issues with the vane style manometer- the very sensitive voltage sensor that measured the spinning vanes was...

    I can't recommend the Knipex pliers-wrench enough for this kind of thing. They are every bit as good as everyone says they are.

    There won't be an "optimum" formula for the grid spacing as the strength and stiffness will always be "better" with more slats. You'll definitely hit diminishing returns at some point though, so I'd...

    Are you seriously saying that it's the same thing? People use doors constantly, day in and day out. All the time. Everyone walks through a door what, dozens of times a day? And what tiny percentage...

    Hi Dave, you can Google search "table saw accidents" and it comes up right away. Also I never said it was a government research paper, I just said it was a study. So I understand that you don't trust...

    It limits damage in a massive, massive way for a whole lot of accidents. It doesn't just slightly lower the amount of injury you'll get. Look at the high speed videos out there. Sharp blades at high...

    Sawstops are silly. As long as you always pay attention you have nothing to fear. Same reason I never wear my seatbelt, it's just fearmongering. As long as I'm a safe driver I'm totally fine. Same...

    The original thread is deleted, so I don't know what kind of wood the OP was using, but if it had any MDF or other fillers in it there could be some metal in there. See this earlier thread:...

    PETG would likely be fine for this and it doesn't require anything fancy. A Prusa farm could crank these out all day long and never miss a beat. 3D printers are much better than they were even 4-5...

    You definitely know when there's too much CO2. Your body can detect too much CO2 but not a lack of oxygen. The "I can't breathe" feeling you get is due to you not being able to evacuate CO2, not...

    Wow, that's really cool. Thanks for sharing. I think I'll get the $20 kit. I don't have a CNC machine but I do have multiple 3D printers and I bet most of that would work just fine in plastic. I can...

    I see the "get a power feeder" advice pretty frequently when discussing shapers. For my situation I can't justify such a purchase, as I don't do enough with it to warrant a power feeder. And I get...
  19. Shaper or router table for tongue and groove cabinet construction?

    I'm planning on taking my first crack at building some cabinets and I'd like to use the Sommerfeld tongue and groove method. However, I recently bought a combo machine with a shaper in it, and I'm...

    I'd sell anything I could. Keep the stuff you know will be hard to replace, sell the rest.
