    I think the radiation fears are overstated, maybe by a lot. This is what my layman self thinks he knows. There are at least two kinds of radiation, ionizing and non-ionizing. Ionizing radiation is...

    This is one of the advantages of an unlocked phone. The ones I've looked at come with Google's apps and that's it. No carrier crap. Even Google's stuff is more than I'd prefer but better than the...

    That was one reason I bought a Nokia 7.1, It has about a 5 3/4" screen, about 6" X 2 7/8" overall. I find it okay in a front pocket. It's difficult to find something that small anymore. The other...

    A dado would be fine with a dado set. My outside dado blades have tiny ears on the outside edge of the main blades. These leave a little groove. That wouldn't matter on a dado unless the ends are...

    Ads causing problems? Say it ain't so!! :). For me, noscript and uBlock origin in Firefox are not options, they're required. Ads and the Web are kind of like the opposite sex; difficult to live with...

    Checking the connections at the drive head is step next I think. Start with the easiest/cheapest and work up from there.

    It's possible to find classic flip phones that work on current generation phone networks. There aren't a lot and I can't attest to their quality but they do exist. I couldn't get by with a flip...

    There is research into alternative battery chemistries that have fewer issues. Sodium ion is one that has gotten some press lately, sodium is not a scarce commodity. Our friends in the Middle Kingdom...

    Lots of good things to check here, thanks to everyone. I'll report back if I'm able to solve the mystery. It's not urgent because I am able to close the door by holding the switch but closing with a...

    Stanley garage door opener misbehaving

    We have a Stanley screw-type garage door opener installed around 1997 so it doesn't owe us anything. It opens perfectly, no issues. Closing is an issue. If i push and immediately release one of the...

    I'd go along with the 20 amp fuses. It would still be good to know what the motor is actually drawing compared to FLA (full load amps) on the motor's data plate. If the motor is drawing more than...

    Yup, dust collection on that machine did seem like an after thought. If you want to have some "fun" try planing wet pine that creates stringy fibers rather than chips.

    Good point. Still, why after 4 years did it start blowing fuses? What is the FLA (full load amps) number on the motor's data plate? A 3 h.p. 240 motor typically draws 12 - 15 amps @240 volts so 15...

    But are they measured in meters/second, kilometers/hour or miles/hour? :). The distance is the distance, the rate is the rate, it's just a matter of how we measure it.

    There were 3 primary Delta branded 'lunchbox' planers I think. 540, 560(565?) and 580. The 540 was a solid gray sniper but tough as nails. The 560 had a head lock and was black & gray. I don't know...

    It's a variation of the well known "$100 hamburger". I need an excuse to go flying and what's that? The destination on a lake? Let's go!

    Not a permanent fix but Firefox has as add-on called "Rotate and Zoom Image". I don't know about other browsers.

    It seems that aeronautical engineers agree. All dimensions I'm aware of are decimal inches - well, except fasteners. Those have their own conventions with their roots pre WWII that make hardwood...

    I did similar, built a little wooden support for the drill press's VFD and drove an eye screw whose eye fits the key and the key is always there. If I used a drill press a lot I might prefer a...

    I had a 22-580 for a while. I don't remember it being a sniper, the 540 would leave a good sized snipe on each end but as you said, as long as I held up on the end of the board starting and ending I...
