    Continuing the hijack, just a little... Slab on grade with post-tension cables (PTCs) is essentially the standard in N.TX, and has been for 30-40yrs now. Early on, the bottom plates were typically...

    Most VFDs state the units of accel/decel rate as Hz/sec, and default on most units I've worked on is 1 (hz/sec), so 1 minute to start or stop. ...Out of the box.

    That said, obviously you can set...

    Disclaimer: I have never worked with the Vevor VFDs, but have worked with 10-11 other VFD brands over the last several years.

    I assume the 'blue' wiring is from the OEM manual. This indicates the...

    I didn't realize the JIS didn't cover the full size range, i.e. down to the LS070. The LS090 is larger and will easily carry the Hp/torque, and should be (looks to be) available with the 5/8" bore. ...

    Late to the party, as I thought this would have been solved quickly.

    If going full-on replacement, I'd suggest the Lovejoy 'J-I-S' option (Jaw In-Shear). The 'spider' is external; you can replace...

    Does this pump produce 25-30psi? If so, run it to a dedicated geared sprinkler head or maybe a good ol' fashion impact head that will throw it in a 35-40ft radius. Maybe tie pump into existing...

    +1 for my drill press; coupled to the DC w/ Rockler 4" x 2-1/2" adapter. Caveat for Mr. Barstow: the Loc-Line will stay where you put it, but it is not as flexible as you might think. I used all...

    'Most' screw threads with typical TPI's are self locking, so give you considerable safety margin against auto-rotation (induced by load), and the gear motor adds even more friction to the system. A...

    Often differences are deep in the supply chain. One example: directional drilling has been a real game changer. Build 1 surface drill pad and drill 2, 3, or 20 wells from the same pad. A bull-dozer...
