Sounds pretty normal for high school senior classes, especially required ones because the kids don't want to be there and will do pretty much anything to distract themselves from their reality. Its b ...

I experimented using water and found my rig cuts faster if I use oil. Stays cool either way so there must be some lubrication effect going on that affects how fast the teeth cut the material.

I'm trying to figure out how to do expansions/contractions in Japanese weaves. Has anybody seen any examples of such they can point me to? Or know how to do them and can send me an explanation of ho ...

As I understand it, actual grounding straps have some built in resistance to their grounding path as a safety feature -- that way they don't become a high current path to ground if the user accidently ...

In my experience, your issues are consistent with bad memory. It might also be bad blocks under the page file, but that is less likely.

You boot into memtest, so you don't need to wait until you s ...

My watch has a J12-1 (square) band on it. I wear it every day. I work in an office. Nobody notices, nobody cares, nowhere I've ever been, not ever.. I don't think people see it as adornment. Fine ...

Won't your hair get caught in the rings?

Might want to do a flat weave and glue it on the outside. Also, that way you have tons more fashion options for the weave.

PostForum: Weaves Discussion   Posted: Mon Aug 08, 2011 9:59 pm   Subject: spin
If all weaves cumulatively distort into a spin, then its a fine term, although I think I prefer ""twist" to "spin". If not, then something more generic might be better.

18galvy will be butter compared to the stainless, especially the half hard (?) stuff that TRL sells. Konstantin dead on about the leverage, and with the right leverage the stuff isn't too bad. You s ...

Sounds like you know what they want to see - shoddily assembled work made with hand-made rings. In other words, it has to look handmade to them, so it can't look too perfect.

I'd give them what th ...

The drill doesn't have much torque

Then buy a newer more powerful drill? Razz

There is a tool for removing the pins, but you could also use a hammer and drift to drive them out. Older chains may have had headed or peaned rivets (I seem to rember stuff like that), but newer pin ...
