The last time I got "TILT," I think my machine wasn't working right. I kept tilting and tilting, then it fell over. The damn sign was STILL lit up.

The cheapest tent I'll do is Coleman. And by "cheapest" I mean cheapest in quality. Ooookay.... my two cents: I hate Coleman tents. As far as features, function and durability, I'd take Brand X over Coleman anyday. I camped in a Eureka for fourteen years (I got it when I was four and joined the Boy...

I actually saw a documentary on that. It was a group of kids called "The Waldos," and it was code for, ahem, partaking under the nearby Louis Pasteur statue every day at 4:20. It started as "4:20 Louis," but was shortened to "4:20." Why Louis Pasteur is anybody's guess.

What are the things on the lower right? Buss bars can handle anything depending on size. Make sure your voltage matches your leds w/wo resistance. Voltage meters do consume some power. You could put that on a momentary switch. You will want low resistance switches for low voltage. What are you doin...

DC wiring question

I haven't had a lot of experience with this, and my two main questions are whether or not the wiring on the fuses looks good, and if the grounding bars would be adequate for wiring in parallel. Would it cause too much extra resistance? Here's what I have so far. Don't worry, it makes sense to me. ht...

Hollow, yes. Split, no. Doesn't seem too difficult, though. Pool noodles are the extent of my geodesic dome knowledge.

It is, in fact, an internal hub 3-speed. I have a couple more questions, if anyone can help me. There's a small capped opening to the internals on the hub. At first I thought it was a grease nipple, but I think it's just a porthole to oil the gears. Is it for oil? What kind should I use? I heard som...

Anyone ride a 3-speed? I've got an old Huffy Sea Pines I'm fixing up, and the internet has been less than helpful. I'd love to see some pictures of your 3-speeds, friendly advice or banter or plain old derision and hatred. Okay, ready... wait for it.... go.
