    Re: Cordless power tools

    The Porter Cable brand is owned by Stanley Black & Decker--same as DeWalt--so it's probably somewhat likely you're getting the benefit of DeWalt's R&D and/or carryover of older tech. I'd put...

    Re: Car Gasket Question

    I'm confused--you said in the original post this was for the head gasket... is the thermostat somehow part of the head gasket?

    If it's just the gasket between the intake and the thermostat...

    Re: Car Gasket Question

    Oreillys carb cleaner has some pretty nasty solvents. That or fast lacquer thinner are usually my go-to general solvents for stuff like this.

    I wouldn't be too scared of using a razor blade,...

    Re: Tax question

    To do HSA contribution you need to have high-deductible health insurance. Or, you're supposed to, at least (I'm not exactly sure what the oversight is on that). Looks like 2014 contribution...

    Re: Receiver Help

    What happens if you turn the receiver on before firing up the TV and Directv box?

    How are things connected? HDMI from Directv box to receiver to TV?

    What specific brand/models of equipment are...

    Peace Tree Hop Wrangler / Red Rambler

    Maybe something from Backpocket? I've liked their beers that I've had, but not sure what they offer in the stout/hoppy categories.

    Re: Q For Auto Body Part Experts

    Do you have the piece that broke out? A body shop may have appropriate adhesives to glue it back together. Plastic welders also exist, although probably questionable how well it would work or if cost...
  11. Re: Headliners changes owners/turnover of campustown bars

    I'm not sure I've been there since that was Capones--and my impression may be further jaded by memories of MoJazz--but isn't that building sort of the polar opposite of upscale?

    Re: Good First Beers

    I think you're on the right track with Boulevard Wheat. Just make sure it's ice cold. Cold Boulevard is about as smooth/mild as you can get, IMO, and a good "gateway beer" for non beer drinkers.

    I...
  13. Re: What accessories do you want in your next car?

    My last purchase was a (used) Toyota Higlander, which happened to be a base model without many frills. It probably sounds stupid, but the thing I miss the most from the Blazer I had previously is the...

    Flying Dog Kujo is really good. Imperial coffee stout. I've not seen it anywhere locally, though.

    Have you drawn out a schematic of what's there now? In my experience, cheap Chinese commodity items like this can have fairly novel circuit design to keep the component count low. My thought was that...
  16. Re: Question for those gifted in the electronics arts

    When you say your device sends pulsed voltage to control the frequency, are you saying like PWM (where carrier frequency=piezo pitch) or just on/off DC voltage?

    Re: Surge is back!

    As of 5-6 years ago Jolt was still available--sold in 24 oz cans with a domed screw lid designed to mimic a giant AA battery. I haven't seen it in a while, though... looks like the US company may...

    I would also assume it's to help reduce shadows from the sun, or in the event of clouds, to maintain a consistent exposure for the TV cameras as they move from one area to another.

    Magic Muffler on E Lincoln Way--competent, reasonable prices, and won't try to run up the bill replacing a bunch of unnecessary stuff. 515-232-1863
