    The Walking Dead ***POSSIBLE SPOILERS*** - You've Been Warned!

    I was trying to figure out what the 'plan' was - why they are all over the country side. On a side note - is this still following the actual comic book series ( oops - graphic novel )

    I learned a few things over the years with the digital cameras. They will set your speed and lens opening. BUT. they do a lot more than that. They also set the contrast, the sharpness. and lots more. Take a landscape picture - first just using an shutter speed setting. Then do the same picture...

    Best waterproof/underwater digital camera?

    I have an Olympus TG-2 underwater camera. This is as good as any Point and Shoot digital camera, but it is is still a Point and Shoot camera. Other brands that make good underwater cameras are Nikon, Fuji, Canon and I am sure there are others as well. Unless you are going for 'professional'...

    Argus Cameras: Anyone remember these or seen one?

    If you do not remember how long the films has been in the camera - It probably is way out of tolerance ( ASA no longer vaild ) Still - might be fun to finish it off and get it developed

    Drilling hardened steel?

    The only work I ever did ( years back ) with hardened steel is grinding it.

    Measuring

    Measuring anything requires a certain 'touch' or 'feel' to get it right. It is best to practice on something that is a known size, like gauge blocks. A lot of tools have a friction knob that does not allow you to over tighten the tool. Like anything you do in life - the more you do it, the...

    This comes under the 'DUH' factor.. I have a backpack that I keep my Nikon setup in. This is 4 lenses, 2 camera bodies, 2 flashes, batteries, chargers and other odds and ends. When I travel, I pick what I need for the trip and scale down on the camera equipment, Usually 1 DSLR, 1 underwater...

    Nikon SLR/D-SLR fans

    Thanks for a more detailed explanation. I am an old school photographer. I had assumed ( wrongly ) that the different modes offered by Nikon only affected the speed, aperture and ISO ( if on auto ). The computer and sensor in the camera can do a lot of other things which affect the image, kinda...

    We took a trip last week. I finally got into the habit of changing the settings from P,M,A,S and got into the different modes. It does in fact make a difference in the resulting images. Landscapes have greater color, beach images look brighter. SO - it looks like the different modes do more...

    My PM-1236 finally arrived

    Paper towels are better than cloth, Paper will tear into pieces fairly easily, Cloth - not so much. ( and yes - this is experience talking )

    My PM-1236 finally arrived

    Just a quick thought concerning plastic sheeting or paper towels on the lathe ways to keep them clean. At some point in time, cutting something that does not chip, but rather comes off in a 'coil' that coil will eventually catch the sheets on the ways and spin them like you have never seen...

    Need advice on a problem...

    I am going to guess on this - I don't know about stronger, but the heli coil will stand up better to multiple times a bolt is threaded in and out. Cast will wear out quicker than the insert. precisonworks can probably answer this better than I can. If this is going to be powder coated, make...

    Need advice on a problem...

    I bought a floor drill press years ago. I really does come in handy for lots of different jobs. The one I have uses a belt system to change the speeds, I would suggest one that has a dial or variable speed motor to change the speeds. Also, when you start to use the press, put some grease on the...
