    It looks like Tesla has that function planned. This article is from 2020 so I don't know if it has been implemented yet.

    Here's an article from 2021. Looks like they have approval for the...

    For cooling, Tesla has "Dog Mode" as Ronald Blue said. It's really slick. With it, the air conditioning stays on in the car. Since the air conditioning is run by an electric motor, not off the...

    I was told the same thing. Then I started using hot hide glue and learned differently. Jim and John are right. Anything that fills the pores of the wood will show through a finish.

    It's not that high. It's just that hydrogen from natural gas is cheaper today and the existing Haber system plants are set up to use natural gas.

    And regarding hydrogen for a fuel for cars, it's...

    Natural gas is used to produce hydrogen used in the Haber process to produce ammonia. It would be easy enough to use electrolysis to produce the needed hydrogen. Today, it's cheaper to use steam...

    Hide glue will certainly show under a finish. You may have to sand the areas where the hide glue was in order to remove it. Similar to what you'd have to do with PVA.

    My experience with condos (and apartments) tells me that some people will not have an electric car (especially in the short term) and will want a rent (or HOA fee) discount because of that.

    There can be problems with housing with detached parking. A friend of mine is part owner of a group of apartments that have non-attached parking. There's no reasonable way of running power from the...

    Rockler has 15% coupons on a regular basis. I've used those to purchase some Bessey clamps.

    I'm not sure battery swapping will work out.

    Obviously, you have to be able to charge your car at home, not just with a battery swap. What's to prevent someone who thinks their battery is...

    The differences you mention are in the circuit feeding the motor. If the circuits are properly sized so that the voltage drop during startup or running is the same percentage in either the 120V or...

    I tried one of those attachments one time. First, there's the setup and teardown time. And while you have the attachment on, you can't use the drill press as a drill press. Then the arm of the...

    As far as mortises go, I drill them out with my drill press, and then trim up the sides of the mortise with a standard bench chisel.

    That's the same people who provided the questionable statistics for the NY Times article.

    I went and read the article and then followed the link to the source of the data. The source does not really tell you how the data should be interpreted. However, the EV data has a problem.

    If...

    Perhaps there's an error in those statistics. The hybrid numbers would indicate that 3.5% of hybrids catch fire each year. That's a lot of fires. And if that rate is constant each year, if you own...

    You need a cheap VOM (volt ohm meter). With that, you can check for continuity across the fuse. You can also test to see if you have power in various places in the machine.

    If you're doing a tenon that has shoulders, what most people do is to cut a bevel around the top of the mortise, so the excess glue has some place to go and doesn't squeeze out.

    Epoxy is one thing I mix more than I need. It's not that expensive (I have a gallon of West Systems) and I don't want to run out when I'm using it. I don't mind throwing some away.

    I used to do...

    I've been in the engine room of a medium sized ship and the sound is deafening. I can imagine what it was like in the engine room of the diesel/electric submarines used in WWII.

    Yep, you could take the components of a hive (bottom board, brood box and top) and strap them together and put that up in a tree. According to Seeley, "Honeybee Democracy," the scout bees look for a...

    If he did capture a swarm at this time of year, it would not have enough time to build up supplies to survive the winter in his area.

    That's a pretty elaborate swarm trap, also.
