    The thing I like most about those little fan anemometers is you can keep positioning them and reinterpreting the results until you validate whatever conclusions you are looking for. At one point in...

    Based on the appearance, I would say it is reasonable to identify it as pecan. I would need more pictures to be sure. Pecan is very much like hickory in the way it works. It is hard, brittle and...

    Most modern machinery uses motors which are internally thermally protected. They are built that way because it is impossible to design a cost effective breaker that will accommodate starting current...

    I have come to really like white for cabinets. It looks so clean and bright.
  5. In order for an electrical code to be effective,...

    In order for an electrical code to be effective, it needs to be applied in all cases rather than allowing changes because they are safe in a certain limited set of circumstances. At the beginning of...

    So, what you are saying is that a 20A wall plug is functionally identical to a 30A wall plug and that either should handle a 30A load on a regular basis. That is just ridiculous. Perhaps you are...
  7. The only problem I see with your installation is...

    The only problem I see with your installation is that a 30A circuit should always be paired with a 30A wall outlet. If it isn't, you introduce the possibility that someone will run 30A through the...

    This is an illustration of how intuitive thinking can be very believable but not correct. This opinion is coming from an electrical engineer with over 30 years experience, part of it in overcurrent...

    Here is what the manufacturer has to say about it. It took me a good 15 seconds to find it - much quicker than asking for advice on a forum. Why not consult the manufacturer rather than trust the...

    Are you honestly wanting to hear from people such as myself who think a track saw is superior? It doesn't seem so.

    I agree with Ray. 30A circuits should be connected to a 30A rated receptacle. Buy your plug and receptacle from Amazon and save some money over the big box stores. Alternately, you could replace the...

    It is doing a disservice to stationary tool buyers to tell them that a 240VAC circuit is necessary, or even beneficial, for a 1.5 hp motor or imply that a 15A circuit is not adequate. The truth is...

    Why would anyone in their right mind buy a refrigerator with an ice maker they expect too fail? Why not just buy a different brand? Does anyone really believe that all refrigerator brands have ice...

    If your 120VAC wiring is adequate, then you will see zero improvement by switching to 240VAC. The best way to tell whether your wiring is adequate is to use an AC voltmeter. I see no need for an...

    Is there a crisis of broken gear cases of snow blowers? Lots of new cars have cast aluminum blocks and these engines are much more reliable than older generation engines with cast iron blocks. I...

    I am curious to know what practical difference there is between the phrase "extended warranty" and "extended service contract/insurance". Calling it one thing or another may have some legal...

    I have a friend who developed a terrible respiratory problem from milling walnut and maple for his kitchen floor. As soon as he started using dust collection and a dust mask, his problem went away....

    The way I see it, buying insurance on consumer items that I can replace myself if necessary is the same as buying a lottery ticket as an insurance policy against poverty. It works for a small...

    I like the Nissan Frontier. I drive a Ram 1500 because the Frontier I sold was not big enough to pull a travel trailer. Otherwise, it was an excellent product. I just don't think the quality of any...

    Sounds like a $10 solution to a $0.50 problem to me. OSB is rough and does not take paint well. It seems to me like choosing a different material is more appropriate than finishing it like drywall.

    I have painted OSB in my new shop and I hate it. It looks coarse and didn't paint well. If I had it to do over again, I would use what I used in my old shop. That is 1/2 inch by 4 ft by 8 ft exterior...
