Re: 18650 spot welding -how to- ULTIMATE REPOSITORY

There seem to be 3, maybe 4 models of battery powered welders.
Anyone able to make comparisons?

Re: Fat Mans Seat ?

Good for a retro style bike that you want to retain the looks. For practicality and comfort, there are a lot of better choices out there at a fraction of the cost. Apparently, not all butts feel the same. I own cloud 9 and a couple of high-end gel seats. I am most comfortable on this leather. I gre...

Re: Is better to charge the battery only to 80%?

What I don't fully understand is why the battery or ebike sellers don't give that same advice to the buyers. Mostly because they have no idea. But even if they did, they wouldn't promote it, because it wouldn't make them as much money selling you a new battery when your old one dies. Jeebus all sel...

One idea i've heard that really appealed to me is this: Make dashcams mandatory and allow the driver to submit clips of someone driving poorly to the government. Enough flags on one person, and they get followed a few times and pulled over if caught in the act, or if a report was really bad, then t...

Yeah, the Mormons run the same game with alcohol. They have a monopoly on sales, and it's all for their own gain. I say 'the Mormons' because the church literally controls 95% of aspects of government here, which is a rounding error to 100%. Our medical program is very weak and verrryyy over-regula...

Re: Where are the hq geared hub motors?

MACs today are nearly perfect geared motors, and the stator itself has the thinnest laminations ever seen in any hub motor to keep the cooling issue at bay as much as possible, and the gears/clutch have gone through almost a dozen revisions for strength. The real limit for geared motors is thermal ...

Re: Even the mormon capital of the USA has legalized medicinal cannabis..

Opium and cannabis are two distinctly different critters. Absolutely no comparison. My biggest bitch about legalization is the continued lack of sources for "medical" grade. Which in many places is highest THC rather than higher CBD. Legalization rode on the back of the medicinal movement, only to f...

AFAIK the subsidized rates only go up to around four and a half pounds, so not many ebike/etc batteries will qualify for that (though individual cells do for the ebike-sized stuff and some of the bigger car-sized stuff).

Spot on USPS does not ship larger battery packs. Legally at least.
