    Tires

    My prior trucks have been f150, tundra, tacoma, etc. Have bought mid to upper brand/price tires but never got much more than 35k miles from them even with monthly pressure checks, good alignment, etc. Tires would be at/below the wear bars when replaced. Moved to ridgleline 10 years ago. Am now...

    Nearly half of U.S. households use LED bulbs for all or most of their indoor lighting

    Also... the bulb inside your clothes dryer is usually incan. Go check... probably burned out so long ago you aren't aware you had one in there.

    Muyshondt has really disappointed. I will never buy from him again. Am I wrong here?

    I missed that one.... although I call myself reading the whole thread. As the younger folks say "that's sus".

    Muyshondt has really disappointed. I will never buy from him again. Am I wrong here?

    As a business owner I have to say that not immediately replacing a faulty item out of the box, legal or otherwise, is just crappy customer service. Sometimes you eat things in the name of doing business, and this would be one of those times. If a replacement is not available, you offer a refund...

    Simple 18650 headlight for elderly

    Plenty of viable charge options other than those interfaces: magnetic, cradle, external cell charger, inductive. Micro usb falls into 1) wrong way 2) right way, but think it's wrong 3) endless loop of 1 & 2 4) broken connector 5) broken jack

    Current Powerball $

    The type of families where one sibling does a business deal netting 9 figures are the type of families where the other siblings are usually high earners w/ financial savvy themselves.

    Current Powerball $

    That 15M is gonna take a ~50% haircut on the front end. They can get their own planner, cpa, tax attorney, etc.

    Current Powerball $

    I'm highly suggesting what a client of mine did after a business deal went _well_ for him, give each sibling/parents a one time gift of $15M. This avoids 'coming back for seconds' inherent to your scenarios.

    Fraz Labs Mechanical Flashlights (formerly QTC Non-Battery Crush)

    Same/slightly less bright than malkoff md2, so maybe 300-400 lumens IIRC. No heat yet after 10 mins, room temp. Brightness appears same regardless if 'magic dot' is in there or not. Color is on the green side a decent bit. Is my emitter cooked? Link for a replacement?

    Fraz Labs Mechanical Flashlights (formerly QTC Non-Battery Crush)

    I rotated 90 degrees. Worth noting that the light doesn't get hot anymore when running wide open.

    Adventures in Modding a Surefire U2 - Confirm Version?

    The socket extension I used was just smaller than the ID of the tube, provided good leverage, and applied concentrated rotating/shearing force... you could hear the glue cracking immediately.

    Fraz Labs Mechanical Flashlights (formerly QTC Non-Battery Crush)

    I'm getting hour an a half runtime each evening for a project. Think I've work out the regulating material... light flickers for no reason and doesn't get beyond ~300 lumens.

    Adventures in Modding a Surefire U2 - Confirm Version?

    I posted a sleeve removal guide a million years ago... here it is again from memory. Remove all items from tube, especially o-rings/plastic. Hold palm over end. Fill with acetone (could also try lacquer thinner) A 6" 3.8 drive socket extension (depending on brand) will usually fit the large...

    Well please post what supplies you use. I've got 2 u2 lights, 1 old, 1 new, that I've thought about dropping a new emitter into.
