Re: EMP car?

Modern electronic components have a lot of protection. Take an early transistor from the 70's, it was just a single transistor in the package. Buy a transistor today and inside the package the transistor is in the middle and around it are over voltage, short circuit, thermal, surge, etc protection. ...

Re: Repair Wins

My most recent are my table saw, which had a bad bearing that I had to break/cut off but was able to find a replacement and push it on rather than buying a whole new motor. And my HP48SX calculator I was able to remove the face adhesive with IPA and then get the case open and replace the foam strip ...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

So I was reading and researching about .357 and powders like unique and titegroup will give slower speed which isn't the best for a hunting round. From what I can tell is I want a good heavy bullet like 158 grain and as fast as possible which means I want to look at Magnum loads. Also I want to be a...

Re: good starter tool set for home and auto use ?

The difficulty you have for getting tools for both home and auto use it that most stuff around the home is inch and most auto stuff metric, so you really need two sets. I like many have a lot of Craftsman, I'd buy some here and there on sale. Truck has a set of basic screwdrivers, set of wrenches an...

Re: Baofeng Radios.

I use chirp myself as well. There can still be driver issues with win/mac. Popular USB to serial chips are often copied and the original makers try to put copy/counterfit detection in their drivers, but those can even have false positives and refuse to work even with legit chips. There are some boot...

You can do similar with other manufacturers, for example: https://www.hodgdon.com/titegroup/ then there is a list of calibers to choose from. There are also online databases like http://www.ammoguide.com/ I've consolidated this from the Hodgdon site for a high level Hodgdon Target Light Duty Medium ...

Re: Mental health disorders rising in every country

Also more people are getting diagnosis. I know many people a generation or two older than I that should have had a diagnosed mental disorder but never went to the doctor unless it was a sickness alcohol couldn't cure. So there were a lot of undiagnosed back in the day.

Re: To reload or not to reload, that is the question

economical or not, I reloaded to learn how to reload. Around 2015 everywhere started limiting 9mm and .22 to two boxes, then after a month or two there was none available. I was making weekly trips to Cabela's (one opened near me and wasn't far out of the way on the drive home from work). So I start...

I think the initial thought is like the 'leave your car unlocked so they won't break the window'. If you try to stop looting you'll just start a riot and instead of the end result being an empty store you'll have a burned down store. The building probably is worth more than the contents so they want...
