    Google "aircraft black box", and you'll get lots of information. Some of the links should lead you down the right path. For example, here's a link that describes the black box system:...

    The unit from Urethane Supply has enough power to stay hot continuously, and it has a nice, broad tip. But I've read that some people have used a modified soldering gun successfully.

    It's still a...

    I've tried to use air welders -- including one of the Harbor Freight units -- and found them miserable. I ended up with Urethane Supply's KC Welder Pro, and it's done several jobs perfectly.

  4. New Project, New Name

    The old projects go to make room for the new ones, but they could sure pick more convenient times, couldn't they?

    I've done nothing but drive my Scion for most of a year, but the airplane project...

    If you look on the back of the panel, you may find a code to describe the material used; it will probably be cryptic, but many follow established abbreviation standards. It may even have a standard...

    I guess I should have noted that I got my pilot's license about 40 years ago, but -- until May of 2011 -- hadn't flown as pilot in command in about 25 years. Josh is still a student pilot. We'll...

    Update: I don't have much progress to report. I've fooled around with the CarPC a little bit, but the system remains in that misty territory among designations of installed (sort of), installed...

    Hey, I'm glad you're doing this. I think it might help to shift your thinking about it. This isn't a diet and a killer exercise routine; it's a change in the way you approach life. I'd be willing to...
  9. Ohhhhh -- an iPad

    Congratulations! I'd looked at iPads owned by other people, and thought they were very nice, but that I'd stick with my netbook and laptop. Then I got an iPad for Christmas. Now my netbook and laptop...

    Looking good, except for these screws. Wouldn't this be better done with bolts and nuts? You'd be a lot less likely to wound yourself on them, and you'd have a much more secure installation.
  12. Yeah, it seems a lot of people are there. Not me....

    Yeah, it seems a lot of people are there. Not me. I don't Facebook, and I don't Twitter. They don't fit my communication style.

    And I don't want my bad news delivered electronically.

    There...

    Those messages are best received in person. The closer you are to the one who died, the more important that personal touch is. That's why the military informs people of lost warriors by sending...

    That's a gutsy woman you live with. Most people head for the hinterlands when they hear a sawblade whine. I think it's pretty neat she'll even stay in the area.

    For most MDF work, you can use the...

    Updated Guide

    It's been a long time since I posted. Looks like I'll finally get some carPC work in so I can call this completed.

    I've updated the Guide to the thread so it's a more current...

    I've changed valve seals, but it was long, long ago. It wasn't so much hard as it was time-consuming. As HiJack said, you have to take off the valve covers to get to the seals. But the heads don't...

    Yeah, I'd say it's been abused, then. If you're lucky, those tough old heads just need gaskets. If that doesn't work, just milling or grinding them flat shouldn't be too bad an expense, depending on...
  18. Whether the head needs to be machined is only...

    Whether the head needs to be machined is only known after having it checked. When we didn't have a machine shop handy, we'd just stick new head gaskets in, go through the headbolt torquing process...

    That does sound like a head gasket issue, and possibly signals the need for rings.



    Well, Chevy small-block V8s are almost bulletproof, and they can be rebuilt inexpensively. Chevy parts are...

    I used be all-Chevy, and, if that engine has iron heads, I'd be astonished if one of them is cracked. What's the issue that makes you think the engine needs major work?

    I think the bamboo might be an interesting alternative. Most bamboo that I've seen used in carpentry -- like flooring -- is made from thin strips laminated together. That would give the bamboo many...

    The important thing here is theft deterrent, not that it pass inspection. This might be enough:

    Thanks, SGAsgard. I haven't done much lately. We've been building a shop so we'll have a place to work. The shop itself is in pretty good shape, now, but we just bought a knee mill and a 14x30 lathe,...
