Re: Baked my own, experimental NO FAT CHIPS and improved rolls and crackers too

To make the rolls taller, bunch them slightly together so they just touch. I specialize in chocolate chip cookies. My wife is addicted to them . Keeps me out of the dog house. :thumb: :lol:

My Son and 1 daughter are in Vero Beach/Sebastian area, about 2.5 miles from the ocean, staring at a direct hit. This could beat what Andrew did if it doesn't turn north, soon. :roll: :roll:

Off topic but desperate-- Chevy Trailblazer

2005 Chevy Trailblazer tranny Daughter just bought a used one and it doesn't always shift from 2 - 3. She can manipulate it by throttle and manual shifting and sometimes it will change. It is an automatic. 130,000 miles 4WD. No idea what model tranny ? Anyone with experience ? Thanks. Don't want her...

Re: Protect yourself while trying to develop/market a tool

Small time operation here, no where near commercial and don't have anything to do with "E" anything. Just looking for advice.

Patents are expensive and can be bypassed by China, etc. All I want to do is get a company interested and make a small royalty per piece produced.

Protect yourself while trying to develop/market a tool

As the title says, how does one go about this? We have designed an ingenious and simple tool and want to receive royalties, IF possible, and have someone make and market this tool.

Any and all input is accepted. Thanks

Re: Squaring a Drill Press Table

I use a magnetic base with my dial indicator mounted on the table. Then, mount a known straight rod (drill bit) in the chuck and touch off on a 90 degree from 2 sides or from both sides, if you are worried about table warpage. Harbor Freight magnetic base with rods for around $15.00 with coupon.

Insurance totaled the car and they went with a NEW Hyundai. Love it, especially mileage. This is in East Central ...

Never put the clips in the solution. ALWAYS use a wire to attach to the parts. Years of electrolysis experience for preserving treasure ship artifacts. :)

My Son is not an A/C tech either, but, he fixes them sometimes. He says 90% of the time, the Capacitor inside the cover on the outdoors cabinet goes bad. These are for starting the unit and you seem to have everything running, so, my guess is refrigerant needs attention. Youtube has many A/C video r...

Re: Recent buy Chevy Volt battery module concerns

If that strap is connected together firmly, just take a piece if wood and shove it down between the strap and the end of the pack. Maybe use clamps to push the pack together some while pushing the plywood or similar down. Then, take loose the TOP set of the 4 bolts that hold the bottom together and ...

The Lebowski controller is BLDC. Been there and all but begged him to figure the code for the ACID. Paul Holmes has an ACID controller as a DIY or preassembled without the power section, I believe, and Johannes Huebner has another. Huebners needs the encoder board added. Holmes might have added code...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

You are correct, it's called BAS + (Belt Alternator Starter) system. In 2009 was the last year, then, 2012 was the new Gen 2 E-assist system. Melon, which do you have then, Gen 1 or Gen 2 ? I thought about getting a Gen 2 controller/inverter, but, they are located in 2-3 different areas of the cars....

The Gen 1 is a permanent magnet alternator operating on 36V. It was very weak compared to the Gen 2 at 115V.
