    If there are aliens, what will they look like?

    You certainly didn't understand much while you were in those classes nor much of the average subjects that pop up in life. So for starters you are basically saying you don't understand inertia or relative velocity. I'm almost too scared to ask if you in fact are a flat earther. That...

    Forum moderation

    But I bet the message was sent. Every mod has their own style of doing things, some are moderate, while others will be stricter. Some posters do blow themselves out and maybe reach a point they correct how they reply to certain things. Sometimes it's better to have the "evidence" on hand...

    ... it's not a "belief system" it's an accepted scientific view, tested and questioned by numerous people over many many years who actually listened and understood while they got their education. At some point little caveats will be sorted out, but all in all, there's observation of an effect...

    Advise / Opinions to Sell and Buy Welder

    I'd say visit a good welding supplier an see what they have on hand, or visit the local optometrist who's probably going to know what would work for you, and more than likely have made up welding glasses to the same as a person's regular glasses. The only reason I know that was a guy had...

    Advise / Opinions to Sell and Buy Welder

    Likewise my eyesight went to heck long ago, but glasses could only do so much and are often a bother ... one can actually purchase magnifying lens for standard helmet types, and would probably be a benefit to you. Brazing by flame isn't the quickest either.

    You need to look up what a superiority complex is, not every flat earther is that way. Given the little that you know, of course I'm speaking down to you, how can I not, but there's also a degree of sadness and pity for you. You are seemingly totally unaware that you come across little...

    By all accounts those welders sound pretty good. But ... What you should say is ... given the gauge of the ground lead, it is only suitable for x feet ... Much of the low end welders sold in our parts, stick or mig mag didn't have the thickest of leads on them (a fraction under 1/4 inch...

    Flail mower bearings

    If you weld, migs these days make it easy, you don't want too much heat if the shaft is made from something special. Even if it means adding metal slowly, and not to any one side more than another, it's not so much welding but adding blobs of instant hard metal putty. The shaping the end...

    The flail mower bearings do get a hard time unless it was only cutting a light lawn. As a patch, I've yet to see epoxy of any sort work in high load situations where the shaft has been tapered off due to damage, work for any great period of time. If you do try the epoxy path, if there's room...
