    angle grinder discs

    I was just wondering what a case or carton was and how much would be saved with a better wheel. I see a carton is a 10 pack from HF. How much would a guy save in a year if they cost 3x as much snd last 2x as long?

    870 clutch job

    I dont mind splits terrible, I am rigged to do it and most sucks is the oil handling and drips. I would like to do the same model twice in reasonable time. I am part time and not dealer so every job is a new experience. We took a couple hrs and adapted/built brackets for rolling it and spent...

    john deere 870 front drive shaft reinstall

    Its so tight, I made a tool, wasnt without sone effort and could improve it on the outside chance I got to do one again. Even getting it in place was a challenge, took couple of us a few minutes of fiddling turning and timing a little and all of a sudden falls together

    angle grinder discs

    The spring is really strong , how do I hoist the driveshaft back up in it? It seems like a stif effort going to be required to compress the spring that far while holding it up for installation.

    4100 throttle slides

    Starts, runs, when the throttle is pushed forward it comes right back. I tried fiddling with the nut but its too tight or too loose, maybe a broken washer in the assembly? I kind of figure this isnt the first one.

    Swollen Ford Lug nuts

    The main reason they doi not oil, first it allows a lot of creep on alum wheels, drives them too tight, second trying to train a whole country of chimps working on cars to do it the same right way is a problem. Torque isnt really accurate and being dry actually makes it worse, threads stick and...

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    Doesnt say ALL, it lists the musts and the exemtions. Probably worth noting some of this does not apply to other recepts which must match all 3 parts. But,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, what the style of recept does 2 things, 1 it says it has X wire in it and also just as or more importantly is that it is a...

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    Its not a whole bunch of code its the word ALL. The code is only to show that there are allowances that disprove the word all which is explained in the terms and definitions of the code. When a guy says ALL it does we have to assume he is not aware and his education on this matter is incomplete.

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    My argument comes with the statement that usually includes ALL,,, such as ALL 10 must etc,,, it comes from the statement ALL the breaker does is. I happened to read Art 90.7 maybe , dont recall exact but all this is like a web anyway but they do generalize some about the design, the nature...

    Gravity Farm Diesel Tank, is it worth getting one.

    I agree, convenience is the only savings. I had a hole eroding in this one about the size of pencil eraser. Only hole in it. Steamer it out, cut a hole in to look, bottom as good as new, very surprised for a 50 yr old tank,,, new except for 1 spot.

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    The whole point of this is,,,, not telling anyone to wire 10 cable to a 60 but that it might not be as dangerous as it might appear at first glance as long as its not overloaded to start with. Someone make a statement like that and it brings all the "cant put a breaker bigger than a 30 on a 10...

    We might want to read it again,,, it does have to follow the mfg instructions when they list them, mfgs like welders go to great length to make the new machines code compliant. Its what the dvi is all about.

    Lots more places are adopting NEC and going to state inspections. They are getting rid of many county licences. For long time when they adm in their own could get a lic rather simply. In this state the industrial doesnt count for much unless it was on a resume to another plant etc. There was...

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    Kind of makes my point. They are actually required to inspect new installs but may be able to do it wholesale so to speak. If there is a master on staff is sposed to have a yearly walk thru and overlook the installations. The process is in front of the code book.

    That is a circuit thermally protected by the breaker as I mention earlier,,, general use circuit with multiple outlets. Its wired differently than AC circuit, motor or welder circuits.

    No one said everything could be wired to a number 10,,,, but ever notice when this comes up, very little fact, all,,, I taught Edison everything he knows and to tell the truth a lot of "industrial " electricians not all that impressive with code knowledge and never really had to deal with...

    I been doinjg this a while too,,, I dont believe I ever hear of a case of welder wiring burning the place down,,,, lots of other stuff but not that. I be glad to read the code sectioin says you got to do anything in case some dumb azz wires a hot tub to the welder outlet.

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    A 10 cable is not rated for use on 60 but legal for a welder wire at 50. I would be glad to read the code where it specs the difference between industrial and residential. These welder circuits are code legal and been installed by masters for decades.

    They put additional fuses in Xmas tree lights now with tiny wires, they used to draw more but also had larger wires for fault, there was no fuse on them. In the case of the AC unit as was mentioned by others must read the tag and use the breaker on the label and ideally the correct wire size...

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    In a common general circuit with multiple outlets it protects the wire for thermal as well as short circuit which is its main/second function. Not that it wouldnt trip thermal in other types of circuits but for this type of discussion its not really part of the design criteria and irrelevant...

    Wire Size For A 60 Amp Breaker ,.According To The NEC ??

    The breaker is there for short circuit protection. Its also an off/on switch. The reason is is larger on these types of circuits is that is is sized so it DOESNT trip. The thermal protection in this circuit (different than general circuits with multiple outlets) is provided by the calculated...

    Repaired a friend's mower deck

    They says with 0.023” wire and 110v input the Miller 211 has good thin metal capability. The 110v has a better arc over the 220v input for thin materials. I’ve never tried it yet. The wire doesnt know what voltage the machine is running on. Its the adjustment but,,, the 023 is certainly easier...
