Start with the base case. A screw, vertical relative to gravity, face to the ceiling, you standing over it, looking straight down at the head. Even in this most basic case, at all times, and by every measure, half of the screw will always be turning to the right, and half the screw will always be turning to the left. Which means that for Righty-tighty, lefty-loosey to have any meaning at all, you musty first amend it to /The top of the fastener Righty-tighty, bottom of the fastener lefty-loosey/.

The head of the bolt is always the top of the bolt you retard
by your logic (since you use boats) "Oh the boat capsized which side is starboard now you dont know hurrrr"
Take your right hand. Make a fist. Stick your thumb out. Stick your thumb on the thing you're putting a wrench on. It's gonna go the way your thumb is pointing if you turn it the way your fingers are pointing.

flip your hand around, and point your thumb away from the bolt. It's gonna go that way if you turn it that way.

This holds true for right handed threads.

Use your left hand for... left handed threads.

I am wanting to make a power supply to use during storms and in case of a black out. I only need it to be able to charge phone battery. I do have a car battery sitting around, I suspect it has a dead cell as it only holds 10.5 volts. Am I correct in thinking that I should be able to plug a car phone charger to the battery and it will just step down the 10.5 volts to 4 volts for the phone charger? So I should be able to use this battery I have laying around.

yes to all questions.

better give it a constant trickle charge to make sure it's always topped up. like a 15V 1A transformer in series with a 6V lightbulb.
A phone charger will step down 12v to 5v. If it will still work at 10v is iffy. I'd guess yes but would depend on the charger. Some have low battery shutoff circuits while others are so cheap it is a wonder they don't burn up on first use.
>I only need it to be able to charge phone battery.

You can make a hand-crank emergency generator out of just about anything with a motor that can easily charge a phone. People often recycle old cordless drills for this since it's already geared and a cheap and easy hack.

If you have a car battery that holds a charge, just keep a battery tender on it to keep it constantly trickle-charged and keep a $15 power inverter handy to plug things in. You'll have enough battery...

Depends if you just want a toy, or if you actually want a piece of scientific equipment.

If the former, just follow the instructions on the Open Lab DIY spectrometer page using a DVD-R, a webcam, and some razor blades.

If the latter, it gets a lot more complicated. You'd want a linear CCD array rather than a webcam as well as a legit diffraction grating from China.

eggcrates and foams are for echo reduction ie make your recordings sound less roomy, not to isolate sounds, you need mass, air gaps and air tightness to make it quiet
I did something similar for different reason.

All you need is styrofoam.

And different dense one.

Use a high density styrofoam as carrierplate and glue thin pieces of the soft styrofoam horizobtally.

The space between the foampieces should be about 1-3 cm.

You can glue it to the wall with small gluepoints. Will show some good effect.

Dont forget to get a eubberband around your door. So the door doesnt directly touch other part of the door while closed.

I got one for free and it feels like it takes forever. I took the pump apart and cleaned the reed valves and it didnt improve it very much.
If I remember PCIe slots correctly, you can simply cut the plastic slot 'open' to accommodate a PCI x4, x8, x16 card.

Your card should automaticall work at x1 speeds, and all of the power pins are in the "key" that are the same size.

How flat is flat "enough"?

I bought this Stanley block plane and I'm in the process of refurbishing it. This is my progress after 9001 hours on an extra-extra coarse DMT diamond stone. I'll of course get it more polished, but I'm not sure I'm done flattening it yet.

Additionally: what angle do you sharpen your chisels to? What about plane irons? Do you micro-bevel?

>How flat is flat "enough"?

Until the rub on your surface plate comes out even.

Or, if you're a masochist, until the burnish comes out even.
Looks like you're rounding it instead of flattening. You should really use a piece of plate glass or a surface plate with sand paper.
It's taking for fucking ever to get to the sides.

There aren't any scratches there. I'm using an extremely rough diamond stone. It's very obvious when it touches the metal. I've also used a sharpie to more accurately track where I'm rubbing. The sharpie stays untouched.

My stone is 8" x 3", this plane is substantially smaller than that. Less risk of rounding.

Thing is I'm using three primary coils and from what I can gather they are about 100 - 105 turns each.

However, when I use the transformer the primary current reads 17 amps and the secondary reads 6.3. What gives? The resistance of two uncut coils is the same at about .4 ohms.

To add, the cores are two E cores put together. They have different cross sectional areas. There is not a really bad air gap between them and there are no shunts, so I don't think leakage inductance would be the problem. I'm not an EE though.
>different cross-sectional area
well there's your problem
i suggest you study up on transformers and how they actually transform the voltage / current
They're not extremely different, but the primary is on the slightly bigger one. The cores are the same width, just the one holding the primary is maybe 3 mm or 4% longer. So is some of the flux leaking out the bare ends? I thought all the flux would be transferred to the smaller one, just limited by the smaller one. Just tested the voltages to be 160 : 120. I'll put the primary on the smaller core and see what happens. Thanks anon.

Find a slim tapered steel rod (ice-pick) and carefully work it in beside the wire.
The steel probe will spread the spring teeth enough to remove the wire.
You can then remove the steel probe because the spring clip is unable to bite into the steel enough to trap it.

But before any of that shit, go get simulator and practice flying and crashing

An electric foame is a much better starter plane because it's easy to fix when you crash it.
