Posted in thread: Circuit Breaker for 50 amp Control Panel on 01-30-2015 at 12:46 AM
Is there any safety downside to having a breaker too small? The breaker should just not be
larger than the wire attached to it can safety handle without getting too warm.

If anyone else is trying to do this, this is what I ended up doing. First get a 1 3/8" step
drill and two 1 3/8" access hole plugs. This is what I used: up the hole in the back is easy
but the inside...

I guess I'll revive this again since I'm trying to do exactly this. Here's a photo of how it
comes stock. It looks like I should be able to drill another hole above the existing one. Isn't
that metal ...

VERY cool. I'd definitely be there opening day if it wasn't a 3,000 mile drive.

I would say they're way too small too. That's that kind of pump I've used in those little
waterfall things and just put put a constant dribble of water. Think about how fast you would
have to pour out...

Okay, see if I remember this right One step is sodium percarbonate and sodium silicate. The
sodium percarbonate breaks down into hydrogen peroxcide (the sanitizer) and sodium carbonate.
The hydrogen p...

Has anyone run across well designed portable and stackable bottle racks built out of wood. I'm
drawing up some plans to build some in my wood shop with movable dividers that will handle my
Posted in thread: Electric Heating Element Current Supply Concept on 04-14-2008 at 03:54 PM
I am planning on using 120VAC as the power source for a resistive heating element. That won't
work because the heating element will have a set resistance that doesn't depend on either the
voltage or c...
Posted in thread: What would MacGuyver do? - variable speed pump on 04-10-2008 at 10:44 PM
MacGuyver would pull a variable speed DC motor from a treadmill, DC power supply from an old
computer, and rig it to the pump with some paper clips and a wad of bubble gum.

What's the goal with that setup? What's the power source? If it's AC, you can just use a
transformer to lower the voltage and increase the current. If it's DC, you can buy a power
inverter off the she...
