    New Plasma Cutter to Drive a Custom Plasma Table

    I finally settled on a Hypertherm Powermax 1000 to use on my company's CNC Plasma table. I'll be assembling it over the next 2 months and can't wait to see my 5X10 in action. Here's the stats on the 1000... <a...

    Infineum's Perspective On GF-5

    I must say that I agree with many of the points Infineum makes regarding the new GF-5 specification- especially those related to cost benefit. Their discussions of 10W30 oils with starbursts misleading the consumer and the noted lack of statistical discrimination between 5W and 0W oils in the...

    Yay Surgery Tomorrow!

    I'm going in tomorrow morning to get all that lovely damage to my knee corrected (torn ACL, MCL, Meniscus and other bad stuff). Hopefully my "new knee" will be more functional than the blown wheel I've been hobbling around on for the last month. I'll probably be posting like a madman at the...

    Tig Welding Practice

    With my leg bothering me and not being able to hobble around I figured that I might as well left foot tig weld for a while to see if I can still fuse two pieces of sixteen gauge mild steel together. Low and behold I can still dip and move a bit, but I need to work on penetration control still...

    Doc thinks I blew out my knee!!!!

    I had a pretty bad fall a few weeks ago and my knee has been feeling rough ever since. I've been hobbling and icing to no avail. I finally got in to see an orthopedic surgeon this morning and he put me through some lovely painful manipulations and quick pops of the knee. He said that I have...

    What to do with a sludger??

    Ok time for an informal pole. My neighbor recently acquired a 2000 Toyota Sienna van with <35,000 miles on it. Unfortunately he has the V6 sludger engine. I basically told him that if it was my Van I'd run a 10W30 HDD and dump it at <5,000 mile intervals. What would you guys do if you owned...

    I love these things. Got an ASUS Eee PC with a 10.5 hour battery. I'm digging this thing so far and it was <$350 shipped to my door. All and all I can't say that I miss my 7lb Toshiba for home use. I might as well just call it my BITOG life link LOL.

    Audi TT Owners Chime IN

    OK folks, Just got past the big Divorce and want to get back something from my past that I enjoyed. Yes I'm a corvette guy, but I like knocking around with blizzaks on the mountain roads in the winter. I owned a 2002 TT roadster with BB glove leather that I beat the heck out of. Now I'm...
