    Many lights or just the best?

    I have bought many lights starting when a Surefire or Maglite incandescent was the only light to carry. You get what you like and you use them. You'll figure it out. There's nothing like buying a handmade flashlight for $350, waiting for 10 years, then finding that you prefer something that...

    Giveaway: McGizmo, TnC, Milkspit [Finished]

    It took a while to get to re-resent to me but the TnC made it here today. It throws a cone of light - very interesting. I want to know more about the light engine that was used. Thanks again, Freyth!! Sent from my LG-V520 using Tapatalk

    can 220v led be used on 110v?

    This depends. Many LED lighting circuits are voltage flexible - particularly if they are meant to be used commercially. I regularly see 120V/208V/230V single phase fixtures. 18 LEDS requires about 90V DC to drive them in series. You may have a light that works with 120V but pulls a bit more...

    advice on flux core wire feed welder

    Not much special storage beyond keep it clean, dry and out of temperature extremes. The most popular rods like 6011 & 6013 don't require anything more elaborate either. If you are welding outside, stick and flux-core may work better for you where the shielding gas of MIG may be blown away by...

    Cordless power tools

    I recently added a 12V 4 lpm diapham pump and gel battery to a 4 gallon with a broken pump. Once gutted, it wasn't much more than a tank and straps. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk

    Have we witnessed the death of the audiophile? ...

    I'm not trying to beat up on you. I understand the niche that analog systems occupy and there are definite subtleties associated with listening to recorded media as it was intended to be listened to at the time of its creation. My perspective is from someone that spent some time in audio...

    Have we witnessed the death of the audiophile? ...

    You are not really speaking to what an audiophile is. You are speaking to what an antique sound system collector is. Perhaps you are simply interested in tweaking the system THD to the point where it is no longer noticeable. And that's okay, too. As a watch aficionado, I accept that not a...

    Have we witnessed the death of the audiophile? ...

    I don't disagree with you here. Some of my work was on audio and video compression algorithms and you have hit a sweet spot for both sound capture and reproduction compatibility. If audiophile was synonymous with a direct drive turn table and a reel to reel tape deck, I am glad to see them go...

    Battery charging quetion.............not for flashlights

    That radio was compatible with both NiCd and NiMH from the manufacturer . The only way to be certain is for the OP the battery model number. Sent from my LG-V520 using Tapatalk

    Battery charging quetion.............not for flashlights

    In general, the NiMH battery could be overcharged if the charger base is not designed to charge both NiCd and NiMH. I use two-ways often. It's usually not worth the risk of damaging a battery pack with a charger base mismatch. You will be able to find aftermarket batteries with a charger...

    Getting rid of Roaches

    In recommended concentrations, a cat would need to inhale or drink the liquid for the pyrethroid to be very toxic. If you use it in your home, cage the cat or remove it for four hours so that spray is dry. Almost every can of bug spray that you can buy contains pyrethroid insecticides. This is...

    Getting rid of Roaches

    Use pyriproxyfen, an insect growth regulator. It is nontoxic to the point of being an additive to potable water to prevent mosquito breeding. I mix pyriproxyfen with a pyrethroid insecticide for immediate knockdown and juvenile growth control. Spray it in a band outside of the building to act...
